If that wasn't a FS I don't know what is.

Oh my God did that do it...

Actually that Libertarian Socialist post is also f[inks]ing retarded because of the Holocaust and Oklahoma City mentions. You should never let dirks be the voice of reason.
4  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Why do people cite the OKC bombing as an example of Christian terrorism? on: Today at 10:59:24 pm
Like what on Earth does an agnostic blowing up a federal building because of an extreme anti-government ideology have to do with Christianity?
5  General Politics / Individual Politics / For the last eight years, thank you, Mr. President on: Today at 10:40:41 pm
I am so proud that I played any role in making this man President. Thank you.

Broken men are delivered from their bondage to sin.
The hardest hearts break in surrender, and heaven conquers once again.

So I lay down my life for the world to see
that there was only one who could break the chains that bound me.

Call me a fool for this stand, but I would die for that man. My King is alive! My King is alive!
Call me a fool for this stand, but I would die for that man. My King is alive! My King is alive!
And he is worthy of everything.

I know Iím not the only one who felt the hands of death.
But I have found the only one who can restore this life.
I... I am convinced he can save us, because we were once in need of a savior.

So, in this moment I declare, for the lost and the hopeless:

Deliverer, deliver us. Deliverer, deliver us.
Deliverer, deliver us. Deliverer, deliver us.
Deliverer, deliver us. Deliverer, deliver us. Auh....

Here I stand, unashamed.

Call me a fool for this stand, but I would die for that man. My King is alive! My King is alive!
Call me a fool for this stand, but I would die for that man. My King is alive! My King is alive!

And I will hold fast to the profession of my hope, because he who promised is faithful.
Time and time again, in my weakness, heís been strong for me.
Iíve not just heard about him, Iíve heard him.
Iíve not just seen evidence of him, Iíve seen him.
Heís alive, and heís changed America once and for all.

OK to understand why almost everyone finds you an unbearable sh!tposter imagine this: what if a Democrat with zero irony called the Republicans a neo-Nazi party. And when called out on it doubled down and defended his claim by saying with zero citation "Donald Trump admires Adolf Hitler". And when called out for THAT accused the poster doing so of being a Nazi themselves and attacked them for frequently posting pics of themselves on Atlas when they have never done so. Because I never have.

Hysterically enough a certain obsessive mental midget with an I-CA avatar and an unpronounceable display name actually considered this relevant and attacked her over it along with the hordes of other "But Hillary!" things he frothingly raved about.
9  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Did jfern watch Bernie's speech tonight? on: July 26, 2016, 11:42:14 pm
Honestly the jfern moment that sent me over the edge with him was when he did what he always did and ranted about some out of context Hillary quote or action, in this case though it was a quote from a speech that effectively was just her saying "I am a Christian." and then acted like that made her equivalent to some fundamentalist and compared her to those wacky pastors endorsing Ted Cruz and all that.

I was so furious I typed up a livid reply that almost certainly would've been deleted and infracted if we still had death points, and then realized it'd be a tad hypocritical and that I should perhaps "turn the other cheek", so I deleted it...and didn't reply at all afterwards because I couldn't possibly reply to it in a manner that wouldn't be like that.

Tony, reasons why it's very unlikely he's a cop:

-His spelling and grammar skills are sh!t. This is something police candidates are tested on, since it's actually an important part of their job.
-His communication skills are also something that would be noticed because you don't want a cop talking to an armed suspect or doing an interrogation who has the reading/listening comprehension skills that he does and is likely to respond with inane non-sequiturs as he so often does.
-His posts about guns mostly just amount to "HAR HAR GUNS ROCK OMG I LOVE GUNS" and he just uses bumper sticker talking points about gun control when it comes to things like defending civilian ownership of the AR-15. An actual cop would know a little bit more detail about guns.
-He lies through his teeth constantly, such as claiming that Obama openly admires Karl Marx. Why believe him here?

13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: North Carolina Black Church Endorses Trump on: July 26, 2016, 01:26:17 pm
There's a very easy loophole to allow churches to endorse candidates without losing their tax exempt status: Just make it very blatantly obvious who they are referring to but don't mention them by name. Mine is exploiting this to a T to attack Trump almost weekly.

Well, yeah, the idea that Catholicism is somehow limited to certain ethnicities is...odd. Was it smilo who was saying a while back that German Catholics aren't 'real Catholics' because you don't think 'Catholic culture' when you think 'Germany'? That was ridiculous.

But what separates such a person who leaves the church from a person not raised Catholic? That's why I find premise it's such a distinct identity that no one EVER really drops no matter what they believe to be so silly, and why it's not "like being Jewish" in an oft-made comparison as an actual Jewish ethnicity exists (and if course many people who are ethnic Jews don't view it as the total defining cornerstone of who they are either but that's a whole other point.)
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of MK? on: July 26, 2016, 06:59:30 am
One of his posts suggested that he actually is a cop. I have rarely been so utterly terrified reading something on this site.

Yeah I'm scared too seeing as how no one has ever lied about themselves on the Internet.
16  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of MK? on: July 26, 2016, 01:19:10 am
I'm ready to crown him the worst current poster. He's also at least in the top ten worst of all time.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Should the "No unity no trust" guy have his credentials revoked? on: July 26, 2016, 01:18:01 am
Since it was obviously just one person chanting that.

But yes. I like the idea of just revoking the credentials of a few hecklers. Once that's learned the rest of those idiots will get the message and shut up. If they don't they'll be easier to identify, eject and revoke credentials of.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: On a scale of 1-10, how much of a trainwreck was night one of the DNC? on: July 26, 2016, 01:16:31 am
I suspect the hecklers will be less of an issue, because I have a tough time believing they all won't be identified after tonight (especially with full access to the security video cams), so they can very easily have their credentials revoked.

Or even just make an example by revoking the credentials from a handful of really bad hecklers. Once that's learned about it'll have a chilling effect and cause the rest to shut up.

Although Badger you did bring up a very good point in your leaving post, nanny mods trying to enforce rules to the letter are alienating good posters and putting a chill on the discourse while people like MK, dirks, jfern and px have been allowed to spread their filth virtually unabated.
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / Did jfern watch Bernie's speech tonight? on: July 26, 2016, 01:02:34 am
If he did, I don't know if he cried himself to sleep afterwards or got an aneurysm from the sheer rage he felt.

Textbook example of how the "bullying" on AAD improves discourse in ways that Atlas lacks: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?action=profile;u=3184;sa=showPosts

I can't find a single post from this idiot that's been productive in any way shape or form, and whenever he posts in a thread he manages to single-handedly lower the quality of discourse. His posts are often just long strings of nonsensical non-sequiturs and he loves to "back up" his points with simple blatant lies, for example at one point he called the Democrats a communist party, already an absurd idiotic trollish statement. When called out on it he actually doubled down...he said that Barack Obama is an admitted follower of Karl Marx. And yes saying blatant lies like this about public figures IS a problem, it's a textbook example of trolling.

Now if someone started posting this sort of garbage on AAD everyone would dislike bomb him and laugh him off...but I don't think you can argue this forum is for the better because that didn't happen here. Like seriously Badger do you want to defend the "contributions" he brings to here? I'll point out that px/Landslide Lyndon and jfern also basically got ran off AAD...who benefited more from that, AAD or here?

Btw, I meant 'popular music' as distinct from folk music and art music, not as in 'music that is popular'.

Uh, have you ever heard mewithoutYou?

But anyway, a recent realization that I will admit is that my Upper Midwest upbringing did in fact shape a lot of my identity. I don't deny that. However that would be also just as true if I was raised Jewish or Catholic....and it is also true for the vast majority of people raised Jewish or Catholic here.

Also (and I probably should've pointed this out a long time ago) there are tons of Catholics and raised Catholics here that have literally the exact same ancestry proportions that I do. The idea that Catholicism is only tied to some very distinct ethnicities is a premise I've also found downright absurd. While we're at it the name "Tim Kaine" doesn't exactly scream "ETHNIC" either.

Just something that I thought of after today when realizing that truth is in most churches a 20something woman with tattoos going completely down both her arms and who wants to preach in a tank top and pre-torn jeans wouldn't be able to speak, so it's great she has one where she was able to have the opportunity....

How is preferring to have a community of mostly Millennials different from one of people of a similar shared ethnic background? After all the reasoning in being able to relate to people more actually applies far more to ages...
