I always thought she was a pretty big FF, but she went up another level due to this:



That's the only time I've ever seen her being anything remotely resembling rude to someone, and couldn't pick a more deserving target either!

(Yes that's Suey Park of #cancelcolbert fame)

The middle tweet is also quite amusing, since someone ten years younger than RHE is 24, aka an adult. Someone ten years younger than Suey Park is 14...yeah that makes things a little different.

I got a 78. If the cutoff for "millennial" is 73 and the cutoff birth year is 1981...pretty accurate.

I'm using the phrase in its literal sense here.

Yes, and quite proud of it!

One less nut gone.

Unfortunately there's also two innocents gone with her.
5  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should Jeremy Corbyn be dumped as leader of the Labour Party? on: Today at 06:09:43 pm
Yes and replace him with someone all liberal, all the time.

...but Labour aren't a liberal party???

They are per the US definition. What party would Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders belong to in the UK?

Spoiler alert:

"Born Again" doesn't actually mean anything.

Yeah there's a reason hipster Christians tend to shun the term.
7  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Are you bothered by a church calling Donald Trump a false prophet? on: Today at 09:23:33 am
I'm kind of wondering since I know some liberals are so uncomfortable about churches being political in this sense....but on the other hand this is clearly liberal politicking.

Also I'm talking about not mentioning him by name but making it very blatantly obvious that he is the one being referred to, (a pretty easy loophole that allows churches to attack and endorse whoever they want with no repercussions.)

But quite fitting as many preaching at my church have openly called him a false prophet before (without mentioning him by name, but making it VERY obvious who they are talking about.)

You're nothing close.

You call it prosperity, but you're wrong.

You have forgotten

You have forgotten
The Cross, the salvation that came.
No man can earn it.
God is the only reason you're saved.

Your prosthetic happiness will never be enough.
It's purely greed and lust!

I'd rather die than lose my soul.

10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: PPP/Americans United for Change: AZ, IA, NH, OH, PA, WI on: Today at 09:15:05 am
Interesting results. It seems like these races are close, especially since it seems to be RV polls and not your typical LV polls done by PPP. Also no Johnson or TPs like PPP normally polls for. Not shocking because the client was a left-leaning advocacy group, so there's possibly a slight Hillary! lean.

Interesting that the samples were R+ in AZ (R+6), IA (R+2), NH (R+3) and OH (R+1), but D+ in PA (D+10) and WI (D+11). AZ and OH are at about the same turnout level as 2012. NH and IA are a few ticks slightly more Republican (R+3 IA, R+4 NH). PA and WI are off quite a bit. Both are D+9 from their respective 2012 Cook PVIs.

It pretty much confirms a horserace at this point in time.

11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should Jeremy Corbyn be dumped as leader of the Labour Party? on: Today at 09:12:38 am
What I mean is a real US style liberal, not some delusional clown stuck in the 70s who thinks the Soviet Union was right about some things. Bernie Sanders is a liberal by the US term, and someone equivalent to him should lead Labour. Corbyn is a particularly vile sort of leftist who should've disappeared decades ago but somehow manages to stick around in Europe, just like parties like the KKE somehow do.

Also I call him pro-ISIS because he supports ISIS' continued existence. He wants them to come to the negotiating table and carry out diplomacy, like THAT'S ever going to happen. But Bernie Sanders in contrast said that ISIS needs to be completely destroyed. Corbyn seems to disagree and regards them as a legitimate and valid group that has a right to exist and play a role in the future of the region.

Tim Pawlenty was actually a decent governor though.

NO

Why do British shows always have such short seasons? 12 episodes is a long season for a British show, for a US one that's considered a short season.]

The last two seasons had only three episodes apiece, which makes it closer to a series of specials than a TV series.
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Hillary Clinton on: June 27, 2016, 11:22:25 pm
I'm voting for her so FF.
15  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should Jeremy Corbyn be dumped as leader of the Labour Party? on: June 27, 2016, 09:02:48 pm
Yes and replace him with someone all liberal, all the time.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Donald Trump lose by double digits? on: June 27, 2016, 04:49:12 pm
It'll be similar to Obama's 2008 margin.
17  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you know any blue collar people? on: June 27, 2016, 02:48:45 pm
I know people with blue collar jobs, yes.

"Blue collar people" is a silly term.

I'm not going to let a thread of mine turn into an outlet so MK can kill more brain cells with his inane drivel.

21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of MK on: June 26, 2016, 11:18:39 pm
Not sure. My opinion of MK has been quite fluid for the past couple months. I'll abstain until I get to the bottom of this Undecided

Also noteworthy: He not only called the Democrats a communist party, when confronted on this rather than just say he was being hyperbolic he actually doubled down on it...with complete bullsh!t:

I would assume Trump has the same personal opinion given his past support for gun control.


That maybe the case, but I trust him a lot more than Hillary and the communist party.  At least Trump as president would be held to uphold those rights by the voters who put him in the white house or face the prospect of being voted out should he try to exercise those "personal opinions".

Way to guarantee nobody will take your post seriously.

it is m.k. - that's already a given

anyway, the quote itself is a clear example of broken clocks etc etc

I don't think you guys should take it as an insult.  Just admit that most of the democratic party as we know to day has moved towards communism.  Of course, the party leader President Barrack Obama is known to have loved Karl Marx's teachings.

Admit it already.

He became a Trump-worshipping alt-righter raving about how if Trump isn't elected the Democrats will bring in enough immigrants so no Republican can ever win an election again. And blames political correctness for the Orlando massacre.
23  Forum Community / Forum Community / Opinion of MK on: June 26, 2016, 10:52:02 am
I don't think I've seen this guy post anything which isn't just a long string of non-sequiturs. Look at this post, basically every sentence in it is nonsense.

Its no more nativist nuttery than it is anarchist nuttery.  The country gave the left a chance in 2008 after being shut out of things for most of the 00's and 8 years later where has it gotten them?  The country is more racially divided and economically depressed than ever before.  The left has went completely insane, are we really throwing eggs at others exercising the right to free speech or in some cases shutting it down altogether ?    Tell me I didn't just see that?  A Muslim terrorist kills a room full of people and the lefts reaction is to blame law-abide citizens.

You guys shouldn't be worried about this election because you have successfully took control of the propaganda machine known as the media(social too) and entertainment that also delivers leftists propaganda.  Get use to a very divided country for the rest of your lifetime most likely.

Why do so many people on Atlas have this belief that the type of people who post inane rants on Tumblr and the students who drafted that bullsh!t Oberlin demands thing are now the core of the Democratic Party?

My mom had some questions about it and wanted me to clarify but she is definitely not a swing voter this time (one of those who can't stand Hillary or Trump but will definitely vote Hillary). The economic blow back is making the news though.
