STILL don't know what it is after reading that. Can someone explain it in layman's terms?

Well according to this it's a combination of dialectics and materialism. Gee thanks, very helpful.

Outer suburban. I don't really feel like my area is 'exurban', mostly because the houses here are from the 1980s or something.

hmmm? Newer houses such as from the 80s are exactly the sort of thing found in exurbs.

Wow. Is anyone seriously going to change their vote on this? If so that's PATHETIC.

Systems should be made for mankind, but mankind doesn't have egalitarian aspirations. It's not a coincidence that the worst forms of I'm-better-than-you ostentatious consumerism exist in two countries known for imposing economic suffering on their people (China & Russia). I can scarcely imagine what will happen in North Korea and Cuba, if they liberalize commerce.

It has virtually nothing to do with the topic at hand (click for context) and doesn't even make a whole lot of sense. I've read it multiple times and I'm still not quite sure exactly what he's trying to say (not uncommon with AD posts, but this one kind of takes the cake.)

Too lazy to actually add it now, might later, but check out the Opinion of Bernie Sanders thread.

Nah, the Prot fundie vote went overwhelming NAW; enough to swing the Western Isles.

...? I can't think of many forms of Christianity more different from my "band shirted happy clappyism" than Calvinists who didn't even allow musical instruments in church until a couple years ago. But I'm not sure who Phil is referring to as "the tools that BRTD identifies with" doesn't exactly narrow it down.

Ah, found a great old video of the kind of "competition" Wilson faced: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DQ8WDjK-lc

Which again, explains why I am aligned Republican in New Mexico.

wat

That lady was the attorney general of the state?! It seems like she can barely speak English.

I found another great clip from that debate.

While we're on the subject of New Mexico Democrats, here's another good one. While it's probably more gaffe than incompetence, Denish also ran an ad featuring a woman slamming Martinez. Turns out Martinez had previously gotten that lady's husband thrown in prison for 23 years. Ouch.

It wasn't Denish, it was some teachers union PAC. And that woman was long separated from her husband and had no connection to him when he committed the kidnapping he was tried and convicted of. But yeah bad background research on that PAC regardless.

Well at least that's not quite as bad as Rick Perry.

Lewis' post in that thread is correct.

Terry McAuliffe wasn't holding office at his term either. And Tim Kaine was only Governor for a year as DNC chair. The last office holder to be DNC chair previously was Chris Dodd over a decade before Kaine.
112  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: In Theory, Would a Peaceful Islamic Caliphate Have Merit? on: September 20, 2014, 10:41:59 am
However, I don't think there is what we tend to call "moderate Islam" either.  There are people who take religion less seriously and their rationality and humanity guides them to keep religion from clouding their judgment.  There is no moderate, progressive version of Islam, there's no reform Judaism or Episcopalian equivalent in Islam.

The Bektashi might qualify.

And to the OP: No.

Gabu was terrible.

Lewis is the obvious answer.

Freedom City! Seems like a wonderful place, has the biggest scene in Scotland. I actually have seen a band from there while they were touring the US.

But most importantly, like Quebec City, it had the opportunity to increase its influence by becoming an actual national capital....and instead did the right thing for the greater good instead. Freedom City!

Was in my sig, but a refresher:



It kind of pisses me off now that her band was around before maybe a majority of our modern posters were even born....and that it formed before some people who can attend 21+ shows without fake IDs (though it did not break up prior to that.)

So not only failing in Angus...but by double digits.

That's like a Democrat winning Arizona in a Presidential election. This is done.

What was falkirk expected to vote for?

Strong SNP area, so No winning there does not bode good for Yes.

So isn't the Midlothian result comparable to if a Democrat or Republican presidential candidate got 56% in Ohio?

Awesome. I'm surprised Brown had something like this in him.
