As I said above, Iowa is a state where it's virtually impossible for either party to get under 40% in a presidential election. Trump's numbers don't look inflated at all.

Absolutely. I've heard of a couple cases of this happening and no one ever being charged for it.

This is actually better for Trump than I'd expect with his current national numbers although you can probably chalk that up to both parties having a pretty high floor in Iowa than anything to do with Trump.

Much like people who go to church late on Saturday because they can't get themselves out of bed early on the weekends, we are all living in an anticipatory cyberpunk dystopia.

Heh and I go to church on Sunday evening largely for that reason.

I know I'm going to be dismissed as a loony leftist or something, but I believe that nobody should be allowed to own a gun.

Why do people own guns?

Self-Defense: Your bedside gun to protect yourself from an invader is more likely to end in an accident involving you shooting yourself, than in the protection of you. Not nearly enough crimes are prevented by people because they have guns to make this argument reasonable. So many people are shot by toddlers each year that it's really hard to justify this.

Hunting: Animal cruelty, and it's completely useless. Nobody hunts for food in 21st century America.

I look forward to arguing with someone over this.

does not belong here

" Nobody hunts for food in 21st century America." is a very false statement.

Funny I didn't hear this on Sunday. I remember us having a special moment of prayer for various affected groups, including the GLBT community.

Maybe Christianity is a pretty diverse religion?

She receives glowing coverage on Russia Today and all sorts of pro-Putin websites. Check this out: http://www.therussophile.org/why-i-support-dr-jill-stein-for-president.html

It's not surprising that she would have such support since Trump is Putin's candidate and her campaign has absolutely no purpose but to elect Trump.

The more Trump speaks, the more we get an idea of who and what he is really like.

I can't imagine that the young voters of today are drawn to a message like his, especially after the ascent of The Bern.

Do young voters resonate with Trump's B.S.?

Do you think the young Bernie voters are going to go for Trump in any significant numbers if they don't feel drawn to vote for Hillary?



MUH RACISM. Stop with this meme it has no basis to it. Mexicans arent a race and hispanic isn't a race.

Census bureau and most of the country says Hispanic is a race, so for all intents and purposes, it is.

NO. Hispanic is NOT a separate race on the US Census.

10 Things That Prove Christianity and Islam Are Basically The Same Religion


1. Jesus and Muhammad were Middle Eastern dudes...


2. ...who received messages from GOD...


3. ...who were always getting themselves into situations...


4 ...and died in their books.


5. Their followers wear funny hats...


6. ...and kill each other sometimes...


7. ...and they don't all really like gay people...


8. ...and despite their grievances...


9. ...both religions promise happiness and paradise for everyone.


10. Okay, not everyone.


(Thanks, DC.)

Not only is this guy proving himself to be one of those Neo-Nazi trolls, he just engaged in quite possibly the most despicable false accusation of another poster in Atlas history:

Holy sh**t, I tried to express my view that as descendants of Abraham, Muslims should be peaceful and not murder gays, Jews, women and non-believers. The Shadowy Abyss came in and told me that I had no intelligence and that he supported the attacks because Trump was against them and he HATES Trump.
120  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you care that Obama hasn't used the phrase 'radical islam' yet? on: June 13, 2016, 08:52:51 pm
No, because many conservatives clearly just use that term as an excuse to hate Muslims.
b-b-b-but Timothy McVeigh wasn't an advocate for Radical christianism??

He wasn't. He wasn't even a Christian.
He seems to have been a Christian to a bit less of the extent Mateen was a Muslim. ISIS isn't true Islam, but McVeigh didn't seem to be devout Christian either and doubted the tenants of Catholicism more. Mateen was misguided, still technically a Muslim but seriously in the need of spiritual guidance. I could be overanalyzing here.
But my point stands. It is being better articulated by others here.

Stolen from a place on the interwebs which stole it from Monty Python.

“We did this because our holy texts exhort us to to do it.”

“No you didn’t.”

“Wait, what? Yes we did…”

“No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons.”

“WHAT!? Did you even read our official statement? We give explicit Quranic justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans, blasphemers, and disbelievers.”

“No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You guys are not true Muslims, and you defame a great religion by saying so.”

“Huh!? Who are you to tell us we’re not true Muslims!? Islam is literally at the core of everything we do, and we have implemented the truest most literal and honest interpretation of its founding texts. It is our very reason for being.”

“Nope. We created you. We installed a social and economic system that alienates and disenfranchises you, and that’s why you did this. We’re sorry.”

“What? Why are you apologizing? We just slaughtered you mercilessly in the streets. We targeted unwitting civilians – disenfranchisement doesn’t even enter into it!”

“Listen, it’s our fault. We don’t blame you for feeling unwelcome and lashing out.”

“Seriously, stop taking credit for this! We worked really hard to pull this off, and we’re not going to let you take it away from us.”

“No, we nourished your extremism. We accept full blame.”

“OMG, how many people do we have to kill around here to finally get our message across?”
h

My opinion on the issue is that Baghdadi and his cronies aren't Muslim, but the people he has tricked are Muslims, just very misguided. Baghdadi knows the truth but continues to do wrong. Mateen didn't know the truth. Baghdadi is much worse as a result.

You're welcome to have that opinion, of course it's a complete worthless opinion in my opinion, but you're welcome to have it. It's not us who define who are Muslims and who aren't. That's a job left to Muslims themselves, and it's clear that the  people he "tricks" define him as Muslim and as such it's not my job as non-Muslim to decide his degree of "Muslim-ness" and unless you happen to be Muslim I'm going to ignore your attempt to define these people "Muslim-ness" too.


He is Muslim.

124  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Cuomo signs executive order halting state business w/groups that boycott Israel on: June 12, 2016, 10:18:37 pm


That's honestly not a contradiction. Jews are a race (well more accurately a group of ethnicities is how I'd phrase it) as well as a religion. Not every religious Jew is an ethnic Jew (see converts and the Beta Israel) while not every ethnic Jew is a religious Jew (too many examples to name including a few Atlas posters.) But obviously Islam is not a race*.

*Well actually there was an ethnic group that used to simply be called "Muslims" but they make up a very very small percentage of Muslims worldwide, and now are instead primarily referred to as "Bosniaks".
