Yeah I'm getting nostalgic. This type of junk uses to be rarer and had plenty of quality analysis as well.

Wasn't Dick Morris also one of those top advocates of that Serious People pundit talking point that Romney was going to win in a landslide, that there was NO WAY Obama could ever be re-elected with the current economic numbers and that the polls were obviously wrong and should just be ignored?

Getting a Master's has to be more difficult than simply holding down the relatively low skilled and not all that difficult jobs Bushie constantly gets fired from. Plus while everyone who's graduated college knows it's not that difficult to skip class constantly and still pass (at least in some majors) that's probably not true for a graduate program, and Bushie is likely going to be missing multiple classes a week because of his tummyaches or his headache going up to a grade 4 and will probably miss an entire day of class if it ever snows. Remember that he basically phoned it in at CADD school and appears to have just barely passed, and a master's program will be far more unforgiving to things like not doing his final project than some community college CADD program. Bushie wouldn't have any chance of actually getting an MBA.

Yeah, civil forfeiture is really out of control in this country. I wish politicians were doing more about this.

Well as I said before Minnesota has thankfully restricted it and requires a criminal conviction to carry it out. I believe the only other state to do so though is North Carolina.

I'm surprised this wasn't a J.J. nostalgia thread.

Most of J. J.'s extremely idiotic predictions are explained by just sheer hackishness. Someone being a complete hack and making unrealistic or idiotic predictions in favor of their side isn't too surprising or to be unexpected.

But this on the other hand is just something else.

Haha. If you get into it you'll find reasons to.

Thankfully Minnesota banned civil forfeiture for anyone not convicted of a crime this year.

Give an example of an actual left-wing South Park episode, and just giving an example where they made fun of some religious right crazy doesn't count. Other right-wingers make fun of that type of right winger all the time. I'm talking about one with an actual progressive message.
110  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of Trey Parker and Matt Stone on: December 07, 2014, 12:10:00 pm
Idiots, completely unfunny, and corrupting our country with their morally degenerate right wing filth. Also worst of all attack people far more talented and moral than they are like Seth. HPs.

You are just like a broken record.

I didn't start the thread. It just asked for my opinion, so I gave it. What did you expect me to say?
111  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: How many parishes will Landrieu win in the runoff? on: December 07, 2014, 12:03:55 pm
Only Orleans, but she'll win it by much more than she did (# total votes) than in November. Combining this with other parishes across the state, I'm going to predict that Cassidy wins by roughly a 51-49 margin.

On the nose!
112  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is this the dumbest election prediction in Atlas history? on: December 07, 2014, 12:02:48 pm
Wouldn't Landrieu need to get more votes in Orleans than registered voters in order to get 49.99% and lose every other county?

Theoretically no, but that doesn't really mean anything, theoretically she could've won Orleans by her actual margin and lost every other parish by a single vote and thus won with just that.

In terms of the numbers needed to do so....it's really not possible to calculate since it's just isn't plausible as a scenario, period. It's like asking to draw what an entire EC map would look like if the Republican won New York but the Democrat won Georgia. Or how a Democrat would lose Cook County and still win a statewide election in Illinois.
113  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is this the dumbest election prediction in Atlas history? on: December 07, 2014, 11:54:55 am
It might actually be worse than Dick Morris.



...wow. McCain's home state being leaning Obama is just the icing on the cake.

But that map, as idiotic and implausible as it is, is not as implausible as the scenario in the OP. The worst thing about it is that Landrieu had already won over 50% in some non-Orleans parishes in the first round.

Remember when Bushie quoted what God said to him word for Word?

Just mentioned above. jmfcst pointed out that it was just a bunch of Bible verses strung together.

Is it on iOS now? I may get it over Winter Break.

It's been on iOS since the summer. There's a couple things lacking in the iOS version but only hardcore players really care a whole lot about those and it doesn't prevent you from levelling up, we have an iOS player who's already Level 12 in Minnesota.

On the flip side Resistance players tend to consider the Enlightened to be a Scientology-esque cult.

One group of Ingress players consider the other group of Ingress players to be like a cult, eh?  Interesting.

More in terms of how the backstory portrays that side. Your average Ingress player on either side isn't much different from the average one on the other side of course.

Whoa jmfcst's replies to that were great.

A shame he isn't here anymore. Maybe he could make Bushie realize that Jesus wouldn't spend hundreds of dollars of someone else's money on a deluxe cable package in a location He didn't live in.

Yeah the sad thing is if anyone should declare bankruptcy and kill their credit it's Bushie.

Actually Bushie's credit is already crap anyway. So declaring bankruptcy for him wouldn't be a bad idea.

BTW this is what happens when a popular Republican incumbent Governor runs against a black Democrat who was most well known for blatant corruption, was later found with $90,000 in his freezer and was eventually sentenced to 13 years for bribery:



1-The result is 62.17%-29.53%, which is not anywhere near remotely close.
2-The Democrat still wins at least one non-Orleans parish.

I've said it before: NYE's non-RSS feed posts are probably even dumber than the RSS feed crap, including the ones where it was obviously he didn't even read the article.

In regards to how many parishes Landrieu would win:

Only Orleans, but she'll win it by much more than she did (# total votes) than in November. Combining this with other parishes across the state, I'm going to predict that Cassidy wins by roughly a 51-49 margin.

We have the map now, and it's quite incorrect...but the sheer burning stupid of it was quite obvious even at the time it was made.

There was also an analogy to Tokugawa/Black Ships/"Resistance is basically like Juche" in there somewhere.

LOL! I suppose I can sort of see where the Juche idea comes from but still...LOL.

On the flip side Resistance players tend to consider the Enlightened to be a Scientology-esque cult.
121  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Hey BRTD on: December 06, 2014, 09:22:35 pm
Might I point out that where BK lives is basically teabagger central and Enlightened dominated, while in the progressive stronghold of Minneapolis this happened.
122  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Hey BRTD on: December 06, 2014, 09:10:32 pm
I looked around on the Internet and most people said "pick whichever side is weaker in your area. It's more fun that way and the backstories don't matter at all."

But aliens were here and real life and wanted to help us, I'd be all for it, and I'm sure the Tea Party types would be trying to shoot them. Then again, I am a sci-fi fan.

The Enlightened fundamentally could be considered neoconservatives. Think of Bush's Iraq invasion and how it was supposedly going to make things better for everyone in Iraq and wasn't an imperialist venture.
123  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update XIX: Melancholy and the Infinite Napping on: December 06, 2014, 08:25:08 pm
Bushie: Please give me one good reason to keep the cable package. Any benefit that comes from it.

And as said before, losing discounts if you cancel it does not count. That type of "logic" is well explained here.
124  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update XIX: Melancholy and the Infinite Napping on: December 06, 2014, 07:54:25 pm
Doesn't Bushie's father work 60 hours a week typically?

I don't know if he gets paid hourly or what he does, but let's assume he does get paid hourly and gets paid pretty well at $20/hour. So any OT is $30/hour. So if Bushie's cable package is $150/month, then his father is working more than 5 hours a month (consider taxes too) just so Bushie can watch a college football game in Tulsa every couple weeks. And that's based on some generous assumptions.

Yeah Bushie's parents need to crack down HARD on this.
125  Forum Community / Forum Community / Would you ever eat at a Braum's? on: December 06, 2014, 07:32:22 pm
I'll be honest: I bet their ice cream is really good. Their philosophy of not opening more than a certain distance away from their main farm to keep everything fresh makes sense and probably pays off. If I was ever in the area they operate in, I'd check one out.

But going there as much as Bushie apparently does is insanity.
