A man of color is president for the second time, and this happened despite a struggling economic climate and a national spirit of general discontent. He has been returned to office over the specific objections of the mass of white men. He has instead been re-elected by women, by people of color, by homosexuals, by people of varying religions or no religion whatsoever. Behold the New Jerusalem.

Hello New Nurd City!
With America’s Presidential election in full swing, the Open NY Forum and New Work City are teaming up to present you the 2012 Presidential and Vice-Presidential debates, aka #PrezD2012…
Like all proper #NYTech events, we are going to nurd out at 11! We will have three screens – the candidates, our own backchannel (aka #PrezD2012), and (hopefully) a ‘truth sayers wall’ calling out all the “miss-facts” / “untruths” / or as the ‘real’ America calls them “lies…”
As we are startupistas, this is a BYOB event. Feel free to bring your favourite Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Black/Red or Rainbow drinking bingo board. Hell, bring a few copies for your neighbour. While seating is limited to 50, I can promise you the lies won’t be.
Don’t forget to bring your Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Black/Red, or Rainbow party propaganda and join us for #PrezD2012!!!
