Oklahoma City, because most places > Detroit.

No, Detroit actually has a pretty good scene, and that's really all that matters to me.

Reactionary union-busting scum.

Yep, definitely why if he's the nominee I'm voting for Hillary to stop him.

Because yeah, anywhere over Oklahoma.

So Obama did better than whites in Indiana than Virginia and almost as well as Florida. Kind of puts things into perspective about the demographics of those states considering how they all vote.

Kind of reminds me of a point made on DailyKos once, Obama did better amongst whites in Michele Bachmann's district than he did in the country at large.
5  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of New Brunswick, NJ on: Today at 11:30:25 am
Never saw how New Brunswick could be a suburb of NYC, it has its own urban core and is pretty far away, I don't see many people commuting daily from New Brunswick to Manhattan. Maybe Staten Island would be doable but New Brunswick is more dense than it is. It'd be like considering Reading a suburb of Philadelphia. Actually if Trenton isn't considered a suburb it's closer to Philadelphia from what I can see.

But suburbs don't ever have scenes. And the New Brunswick one even has its own wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Brunswick,_New_Jersey_music_scene

Whatever the case USA Today agrees with me: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/money/autos/2006-12-10-ford-cities_x.htm

Quote
In Edison Township, N.J., a suburb of New Brunswick, where a Ford truck assembly plant closed in 2004, Hartz Mountain Industries is converting the site into stores, a small hotel, a community center and theater, said Gloria Dittman, president of the chamber of commerce.

Come to think of it, it's the only American city I know of that has suburbs bigger than itself. Edison is way bigger for example.

I remember in high school finding out that it had a smaller population than Bismarck and my mind was utterly blown.

God yes. He's probably the American politician most deserving of indictment now too or at least second after Chris Christie.

Nope. I protested the war at the time.

So I looked it up, the last time the Progressive Conservatives did not control Alberta was 1971. Whoa. This has potential to be quite historic. Not to mention also this would be equivalent to say electing a Democratic Governor of Idaho.

Easily the best city in NJ, and the best city of its size in the entire country.

LOL my thing for New Brunswick LONG predates Ingress. Basically it's to my music what Nashville is to country or Seattle was to grunge.

Although to be fair, if New Jersey as basically just like Oklahoma except with New Brunswick in it then it'd still be a net positive, because New Brunswick is simply that good. It's also the place that has the best songs written about it. Don't know of any songs called "Theme Song For An Oklahoma City/Tulsa Basement Show" after all.

Write-in Iowa.

Yeah that would be a lot better than either. But still obvious choice is obvious.

I don't get why SJWs get so much flack when these people exist. The absolute worst and essentially a hate group.

It's a freaking state house seat. DWS kind of sucks but blaming her for this is like blaming Obama for bad service at your local DMV.

I don't have a whole lot of patience for the opebo-esque charlatans who are so enamored of the "authenticity" and "grittiness" of the falling-apart, high-crime New York of the 1970s.  It was a bad time, and especially as someone who cares about the health of our cities, I think that attitude needs to die in a nuclear meltdown.

But, my god, I am not voting for 1980's Miami. I mean, I am not about to vote for 1980s anything anytime soon, but the Miami bit isn't helping either.

It's not that I consider that a positive but that I just don't care. After all I currently live in a pretty high crime area with lots of blighted buildings, and I think it's wonderful. I'm not going to move somewhere that's boring as f[inks] just because it means I'll hear police sirens less and not have to see some boarded up buildings. Now add in the fact that the other option is in Florida and it becomes even more clear...

oh and there's also the fact that even if blight and crime are the main factors for you, then Miami, either in the 80s or today, isn't going to be too high on your ideal places list either.

I can't vote one way or the other on this one.  I always enjoyed rooting AGAINST my high school but at the same time I, therefore, wanted the other school to have cheerleaders so they would win.  It's whatever.  This isn't important.  Slight lean towards FF for it's effect on forced sexual repression. 

I know I'll get prude shouted at me for this, but honestly I view cheerleading as an outcome of the sexual repression in US society. If you had a more healthy attitude towards sex in general (you being American society) I don't think you would come up with the idea of watching underage girls do sexy dancing before high school sports games.

Aside from that cheerleading is hardly exclusive to high school sports it originated as a male activity in college sports in the 19th century.

Aside from what?

Uh, I said it right after that. Aside from that cheerleading is not exclusive to high school sports. It is not, it originated in college sports, cheerleading was a mostly male activity at first, and furthermore, the first female cheerleaders dressed like this:

Obscurish literary reference so yes it would be. Maybe a bit too long but there are comparable names in length (such as The Number Twelve Looks Like You.)

Uh it's hardly just high school teams that have cheerleaders.
