Examples?

none per se. But I had always viewed (perhaps unfairly) the slavic countries as more backward compared to France, Britain, Germany etc.

political correctness, or what some detractors call cultural marxism, especially when compared with western Europe?

4  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / is the "jersey" stereotype outdated? on: July 26, 2014, 01:31:59 am
after seeing the movie "Jersey Boys" I see how the entertainment business has profited off the marketing of the "joisey" cliche. The question is, is that an outdated stereotype? My opinion is that "jersey" isn't really a correct term and what they are really talking about is "bridge and tunnel".

I also think that the core of that stereotype died probably a half century ago and part of it has to do with the breakup of those neighborhoods as the residents died off (or moved to Florida) and the children moved away and outsiders moved in. I would say there are still stereotypical "jersey" places but that they're actually in New York - places like Howard Beach, southern Staten Island and even outside the city in somewhere like Massapequa.

For those that don't know its Pink Floyd's first album. Many think that Pink Floyd didn't exist before Dark Side but they actually made seven albums before it and PATGOD was a full six years before it. I vote it as a total freedom album as it has an authentic feel to it with the Austin powers type clothing on the cover the apocalyptic title and the triple images of each member. The music itself is ahead of its time and pioneered what I call "space rock". Give it a try: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwTV23pBm_U
7  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / what separates the U.S. from Britain linguistically? on: July 23, 2014, 10:28:29 am
What I've wondered is why the British accent isn't really apparent in the states. One would expect since America was founded by people of British extraction, that there would be an accent of sorts.

In case you haven't heard he's the guy in the ATL metro who left his son in a triple digit car to die. The question is - did he premeditate it or was he dumber than a box of rocks? I'm leaning toward the latter - if he actually had a grand murder plot, why didn't he have an escape route like a flight to Dubai - which you can fly to nonstop from hartsfield airport?
16  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: Draw the most heavily-Latino CD for your state on: July 10, 2014, 12:56:46 am
how about this strategy - draw the most hispanic district BUT it has to have 296,000 McCain+Obama voters in 2008 (average # of voters in a district).
17  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Evanston, IL before the mid 60s on: July 10, 2014, 12:50:51 am
anyone know why it was so republican before then? I read that from the founding of the republican party until 1964, Evanston always went republican, even for Alf Landon. Beginning in 1964, the township has only went republican for president once - in 1972.

Before 1964, what were the demographics of the place like? My guess is that it was similar to the other areas in Northern Illinois like Ogle, Kendall, DuPage, McHenry etc that were ancestrally republican with a WASP population, particularly of the Methodist prohibitionist variety. My guess is that Northwestern was sort of a bigger version of Wheaton back then.

As to why the city shifted hard left beginning in 1964 - my guess is that a lot of the left wing academic types, who previously had limited themselves to the Hyde Park/University of Chicago crowd started moving to the north shore. Abner Mikva, for instance, represented a south side district that took in Hyde Park. When the 1971 reapportionment dismembered his district, he decided to carpetbag to an Evanston seat and his explanation as to why was "if only because so many of my constituents are moving there anyways".

one question I have is - is Murietta considered more part of the SD area or more of the IE?

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / is there a possibility that minorities turn against the white liberals on: June 14, 2014, 12:37:18 pm
I've believed for awhile that the democratic coalition is sitting on top of a volcano ready to erupt. My evidence for this happening is looking at parts of the country where this is already underway. In chicago for example the black community has turned hard against Emmanuel, calling him the "murder mayor" and such. New York is probably in the advanced stages of this with the Ocean Hill-Brownsville incident in the late sixties, the Bloomberg/BDB schism (Bloomberg would be a dem anywhere else) and the, until recently, Cuomo/WFP schism.

Thoughts? Opinions?
25  General Discussion / History / if Princip doesn't get lucky, how does the next century turn out? on: June 14, 2014, 10:13:35 am
the optimistic theory: no world war I, no russian revolution, no dissolution of the european empires, no beer hall putsch and subsequent rise of hitler, no World War II and no cold war.

pessimistic theory: Europe circa 1914 was a powder keg and the keg would have burst in some other way during the 1910s
