paultards don't belong in nj. He added more of Bergen county in 2011 that will be hostile. Hopefully he gets swept out with clinton in 2016.
2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / 73% of moderates - a future necessity for democrats? on: October 11, 2014, 05:16:11 pm
I've read that the breakdown is usually going to be 42% Conservative 37% Moderate and 21% Liberal. Assuming dems win liberals 90-10 and lose conservatives 90-10, wouldn't math dictate dems need to win 73% of moderates?

1994 seems alright, I guess.

When was the last time this district would have been won by the Dems?



1992 probably

lets play a game and start drawing hypothetical districts. I'll start with a D+8 district


I'm guessing 1994 would be the last year an R would have won this, since Ackerman nearly lost that year and this is a point or two right to the 90s 5th.

but aren't there those who identify as neocons but are anti-gay, anti-Islam, pro-personhood and anti-drug reform?

6  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / do sociopaths tend to be impoverished/in debt? on: September 29, 2014, 01:39:10 pm
The stereotype of sociopaths is a rich greedy businessman but my experience with sociopaths is that a lot of them are prototypical losers - moving from place to place and job to job, often with addictions that drain their money

Which "New Right" are we talking about here? The one epitomized by Frank Meyer and William F. Buckley, Jr. or the one represented by Richard Viguerie, Paul Weyrich, Howard Phillips, etc.?

the latter
8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / neoconservatives vs new right on: September 29, 2014, 12:17:54 am
based on semantics they would seem to be the same thing but my opinion is that they were not. Neoconservatives were not particularly ideological and were hawkish on military matters and objected to the excesses of liberal regimes (ie John Lindsay) but otherwise were truman/stevenson guys of the past.

The new right on the other hand was sort of a modern iteration of past movements such as Gerald L.K. Smith, Clare Hoffman, America First, Father Coughlin, Charles Lindbergh in the 1940s; Bricker, Taft, McCarthy, Jenner in the 1950s and the Carto, Goldwater, Schlafly, Ashbrook in the 1960s. The new right, in my opinion, was more or less the old AIP with a different name.

None of the members of Pink Floyd were regular drug users except for Syd Barrett

didn't Rick Wright get kicked out of the group around the time of The Wall for drug use?

13  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / why are cities across the river from cities on a state line often on: August 06, 2014, 11:29:02 am
get a bad rap?

Examples:
St Louis>East St Louis
Philadelphia>Camden
Omaha>Council Bluffs
Cincinnati>Covington
KCMO>KCK

Now obviously Council Bluffs and Covington are not the same as the other cities mentioned and are not particularly violent. But in those metro areas it has a sort of "wrong side of the river" feel to it and Council Bluffs is nicknamed Counciltucky. Vancouver, WA is not actually a bad place at all, but even that city has a reputation as being the redneck part of the Portland area.

16  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
19  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.
