No, right wingers probably get off on living around liberals and scowling and bitching at them. After all, they spend their time watching TYT and every other liberal outlet even though it isn't meant for them. They like feeling pissed off.

Little known fact: Right-wingers who spend their time watching TYT swung the election in Pennsylvania.

I disagree with the CA bill (not the govt's job to dictate bathroom signage), but the NC bill is the more extreme fubar.

He doesn't even listen when his own kids tell him to do that.

150 years most Americans would have viewed the idea of the "American Nation" as a unifying characteristic between the residents of the several states as laughable. "The United States" was a plural noun into the 1890's, an uncomfortable power sharing agreement between a set of very different people and states. If one completely arbitrary nation can be formed around common ideals and agreements to not kill each other I see no reason it couldn't happen on a much larger scale.

Trump's mindset is frozen in an outdated nationalism that, god willing, will not exist within a generation or two.

150 years ago they had just fought a war to defend the unity of the American Nation.

i feel more sorry for the self-righteous hipsters there.

You should probably feel more sorry for the immigrants and refugees who live in cramped and often squalid conditions and are disproportionately the victims of the the not uncommon violent crime.

Sure, but you didn't make a poll about them.

Not really, no.  He's really, really anti-Iran, he has this crazy idea they are in cahoots with ISIS. We need to be able to work with Iran where we can.
8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: house science cmtee claims global warming is fake because it's cold in winter on: December 02, 2016, 10:20:31 pm
The point of the article is that the drop in temperature since the summer is the largest on record, and that this suggests a bigger El Niño effect on the record high temps of the past couple years. Doesn't disprove global warming, and there's some controversy about the accuracy of the article, but it's not just "gee it's colder now than it was earlier this year."

Bernie is to politics what Seth MacFarlane is to animated comedy.

Bernie killed politics?

Saying "Happy Holidays" only at this time of year is discriminatory to non-December holidays.

That would be stupid. It's the only primetime show they have that's any good.
13  General Politics / International General Discussion / China's sex-ratio may be much less imbalanced than official statistics imply on: November 30, 2016, 07:07:47 pm
Academics often talk about between 30 and 60 million “missing girls” in China, apparently killed in the womb or just after birth, thanks to a combination of preference for sons and the country’s decades under a repressive one-child policy....

“Most people are using a demographic explanation to say that abortion or infanticide are the reasons they don't show up in the census and that they don't exist. But we find there is a political explanation.”

Local officials, they argue, were complicit in the concealment to retain support from villagers, and maintain social stability.

Way too religious for Bernie, and too happy as well. A song about Bernie needs to conjure an image of a piece of burnt toast trying to perform CPR on a dying giraffe. Something unexpected trying to achieve the improbable.
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How much does this relate to your opinion of Bernie Sanders? on: November 30, 2016, 02:46:28 pm
This would be sacrilegious if there were anything sacred about hipster Christianity in the first place.

Also, didn't you post something about Hillary being your Queen right before the election? And now you're worshiping Bernie? I'm confused.

He definitely seems like a real freedom fighter from what little I know of him.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Conservatives only: Who was worse; Fidel Castro or Saddam Hussein? on: November 30, 2016, 01:10:34 pm
On the one hand seems like Saddam was generally a sadistic psychopath more than Castro was. On the other hand Castro wanted to nuke the United States into oblivion if only the Soviets would back him up.

The Constitution Party typically does strong in the remote parts of Alaska, this year wasn't the only one. The reason might be that the Alaska Independence Party is pretty closely associated with it and basically serves as its de facto state affiliate (it used to be official in the past), and the AIP actually has some influence and a machine in those areas.

The Alaska CP platform contains some Alaska-specific items that aren't necessarily right-wing that I think broadens their appeal.

Lewis also mentioned something about Yup'ik evangelicals being CP/Dem swing voters.

22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Has your personal experience with Obamacare been positive? on: November 25, 2016, 01:13:34 am
Since I have a preexisting condition and am on the individual market, my costs have been lowered considerably.

Have the employer mandates made it harder for me to find a good job?  Are extra bureaucracy or "efficiency" rules or other aspects of the law effecting my quality or availability of care?  These are harder to measure.

Positive on balance so far then.   Support some aspects of the law, but it should get a major overhaul.

That’s a text-book definition of bigotry. And unconstitutional. Congress should focus on real problems. Sad!

If this amendment is unconstitutional, then so are the sections of the Civil Rights Act and Americans with Disabilities Act that it references.

Red states have higher rates of food stamp usage, particularly poor Republican counties. Who's really that the trough?

Democrats in 2016:  Defending the honor of lobbyists and federal contractors by slamming the poor!

Oh, dry up. If you take a look at a map, you'll see that some of Trump's best counties have high food stamp usage.

harsh! Sad   get me some moisturizer, quick!
