OMG YOU ACTUALLY LINKED TO AN RT VIDEO, OMG AHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!

Yes, L'exquisite Douleur.

Thom Hartmann and Ed Schultz have programs on there.

I'm sorry if you don't realize that not everyone is fooled by the Democrats' bull*s* "Blame Russia!"

I trust Russia Today more than what is nowadays shown on the Comcast-owned MSNBC.

Well then good to know you support Easter Ukrainian militias that are executing people for stealing clothes! And shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 although you might believe that was a NATO and Zionist false flag like the ticket you support.

Hope you aren't posting this on Wi-Fi btw. It causes brain damage you know.

I have no idea what you're talking about, but he's a true believer in clean, uniform platform switches happening with political parties, so HP.  Also very rude.

He linked to an RT video.

The idea that a Democratic Trump could ever win the nomination or be a major factor is silly and based on the absurd premise that the two parties are mirror images of each other and function basically identically aside from ideology. You could never have a Democratic Trump because Trump's campaign is based around demonizing and attacking large groups of people. You can't do that as a Democrat and be successful because those people are going to be represented in the Democratic Party at some level no matter who they are.

Like take the most obvious example: Evangelical Christians. So what if some candidate ran a campaign bashing them like Trump does immigrants or Muslims? Well over 25% of evangelicals vote Democratic. There are tons of them in the Democratic Party and if someone wants to point out that they are largely or possibly even majority black and Hispanic...yeah how do you think that would look? It would go nowhere.  Gun owners? Duh. There's tons of gun owning Democrats. And so on.


I think a Democratic Trump could win the nomination, they just have to run on the same political platform like Bernie Sanders, but add in some controversial statement making stuff about White Evangelical Christians. I can say I know a lot of gun owning Democrats (I live in TX so this may be a factor), but I have yet to meet a White Evangelical Democrat.

Well here I am. So hi! Pleased to meet you.

Not surprised about Russia LOL. And many countries in Europe of course Clinton does well, as Europe is considerably to the left of the US (in fact, so much in some countries that Clinton may even be right of the center, like in the Nordic countries).

Yeah, I guess.  They only cover $1000 worth of treatment a year, which I'll usually have used up by spring each year,

...do you never brush or something? I've only one had one crown and one extraction my entire life.

So this reminds me of that Simpsons episode where a bear escapes from the zoo once, the townspeople panic and demand more anti-bear policing, Springfield sets up a bunch of patrolling helicopters and police just to make sure no bears around despite Lisa's insistence this is pointless because this was a single isolated incident unlikely to happen ever again. And then Homer notices a $5/tax to pay for all this on his next check, he freaks out along with everyone else in Springfield, and Mayor Quimby in response blames illegal immigrants for the taxes being higher.

Sad thing is, that's actually a pretty accurate summary of Trumpism and most movement conservatism today.

The apportionment thing is kind of moot since Nebraska will almost certainly lose a district next Census.

Necrobumping just to show just how bizarre the range of opinions being expressed by various individuals back then was.

"Was Dion a one hit wonder"? good god tell me you're trolling.

even for your style over substance tastes that's amazing cluelessness.

No it's not. I didn't even know who he was, I only knew of this song and that was only due to my parents playing it.

(That's also why I know that "shot a man in Reno just to watch him die" is a Johnny Cash reference, get references to "Puff the Magic Dragon", etc.)

But LOL, your reaction kind of reminds me of the reactions to that time I referred to Jack Kerouac as "that guy mentioned in the Jawbreaker song "Boxcar"".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5hFMy4pTrs

My parents had a handful of tapes they liked to play on long car rides, so I heard a lot of the same songs over and over (they were mostly compilations so it wasn't just a few artists), mostly 60/70s folk rock stuff, Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan, etc. And this a lot. I had kind of forgotten about it and didn't even know who the singer was for years. I was only reminded of it after riding back from St. Louis and mentioning to the people playing stuff like Rush on the phones connected via bluetooth how this reminded me of my parents playing stuff on long car trips.

Anyway I was reminded of this and looked it up. It's a very Atlas song. Was this Dion guy a one hit wonder or something?

Jill is too anti-American. The Green Party have now nominated anti-American, Russia loving, terrorist apologists in McKinney and Stein.

No that post is completely correct. The Green Party is an anti-American Freedom hating tool of Putin just like Trump.

Hillary of course. I'm glad this election showed just how trash the Green Party is and that they don't truly represent a "left wing alternative" to the Democrats or whatever. The Greens are not the party for Sanders or people like him.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Nate Cohn vs. Nate Silver on: September 26, 2016, 08:59:56 pm
I like Cohn, but I'm curious to know your deep, surely methodology-based reasoning on this one.

That he hasn't been basically completely full of sh!t this election season? I made this because he got in a recent Twitter feud with Silver.

Trekkie, yes, even took pictures, but no one is really missing anything.

I mean yeah, fundamentally it's just a small town with a Star Trek theme on its town signs and a small museum, but it's also not that far out of the way. If you're ever traveling between Iowa City and St. Louis I wouldn't see any reason not to give it a quick stop.
