Oh yeah Harry has to be the winner for Hillary.

I'd imagine bedstuy's district was quite strong for Hillary, as I recall him saying he lives in a majority-black neighborhood.

Nope he said Sanders almost won his precinct, which is a lot whiter than the general neighborhood.

Mine was >86% for Bernie but I suspect some of the Seattle people might beat me.

For Hillary, anyone live in a black neighborhood?

Also rapists care a lot more about the power and control than the sex.

There are "rules" in the English language that make no sense and no one really follows, the best examples being the ones that are based on the idea that English needs to operate exactly like Latin even though it's not even a related language (this is where the idea that splitting infinitives and ending a sentence with a preposition are "wrong" come from, since they can't be done in Latin), but this statement defies all grammar and logic.

uhhh... what kind of pastor/church do you have?

A millennial/a mostly millennial one.

I'm starting to think that BRTD is a Seventh Day Adventist or the like.

Nope. I even specifically said that this happened on Sunday.

If the person preaching ever swears, there's no gasps or immediate reactions. But you can actually feel sort of a delayed reaction like everyone is thinking "whoa, did they seriously just say that?" but it processes about 5 seconds too late. But all background noise and any side activity seems to halt.

On Sunday I could see a girl sitting in front of me was clearly texting. Then the woman speaking said "A lot of the views of purity that get pushed in our society are pretty f[inks]ed up." and she basically complete froze. I sort of also got the impression it'd cause a spit take from anyone drinking water/pop/coffee at that time too.
112  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What will be the largest city to vote for Sanders? on: April 18, 2016, 11:36:59 pm
Ah wait, it turns out the actual current winner is Austin, TX. And there's nowhere bigger I can see Sanders having a chance in.

So there's your answer I guess.
113  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / What will be the largest city to vote for Sanders? on: April 18, 2016, 11:32:46 pm
Right now the winner is probably Seattle. It probably gets beat by San Francisco though. Also outside chance in Indianapolis.

Can't see anywhere else likely.
114  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Movement liberalism vs. movement conservativism on: April 18, 2016, 10:49:57 pm
Yeah does Nathan seriously think Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz (the current candidates of each respective movement) are on the same level?
115  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Movement liberalism vs. movement conservativism on: April 18, 2016, 10:28:43 pm
What is "movement liberalism"?

MoveOn.org. DailyKos. The backers of primarying Joe Lieberman in 2006. The early supporters of Obama in 2008. Bernie Sanders supporters today.
116  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Will Republicans try to purge Trump backers if he is denied the nomination? on: April 18, 2016, 09:56:27 pm
He doesn't have many office holder endorsements, but if I were some high ranking Republican figure, here'd be my proposal to handle the few who have:

1-Compile a list of all office holders that endorsed him and set up plans to find and fund a primary challenge when possible to every single one.
2-Compile a list of all staffers and close affiliates with these office holders, and add them to a blacklist that is a lifetime ban on working for any Republican office holder ever again.
3-Institute a lifetime ban on speaking at the RNC for every single office holder that has endorsed Trump.

State lotteries are immoral and should be abolished (normal).

That's not a normal position at all.
118  General Politics / Individual Politics / Movement liberalism vs. movement conservativism on: April 18, 2016, 06:13:54 pm
Easily Movement liberalism.
119  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is American "movement liberalism" the most anti-"culture" ideology? on: April 17, 2016, 11:28:41 pm
San Francisco is generic white culture? It's 42% non Hispanic white, and has the Mission, which has a long Hispanic tradition dating back to Spanish times, the Castro which is noted for its gay community, and the oldest Chinatown in the US. Go home, you're drunk.

1-I'm only talking about the whites in San Francisco.
2-San Francisco doesn't today (I suppose it did in Dan White's time) have any real "ethnic" white neighborhoods. The white areas are all very integrated and full of whites from all sorts of ethnic backgrounds. The Castro is actually a perfect example of this since it's a gay neighborhood, not one with any type of ethnic flavor.

I'm sure these people totally agree with you.

Define "movement liberalism".

People on DU and DailyKos. 2004 Howard Dean supporters. 2006 anti-war netroots types who led the campaign to primary Joe Lieberman. White Obama supporters in 2008. Your average Bernie Sanders supporter.

I'll point out that if the Republicans used the same mostly proportional system as the Democrats Trump would have zero chance of getting 1237. He doesn't deserve all the delegates he's getting ANYWAY. In Georgia he was assigned 56.6% of delegates on 38.81% of the vote.

Something that came to me in a discussion on AAD. But most American "movement liberals" do not give a f[inks] if any practice or element of one's identity is heavily tied to their culture or heritage if it has any conflict with liberal values. Anything that contradicts liberalism in any way must be destroyed. Notice how they don't care in the slightest about Columbus Day's importance to the Italian-American community, it must be abolished for not representing liberal values. They oppose any attempts to block Mexicans and Muslims from immigrating but once they do they want them to be completely assimilated.

Also as I noted, the strongholds of American "movement liberalism" tend to be extremely assimilated whitebread, generic white culture places. San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Denver, Twin Cities, Madison, Austin are all notable for not having any real "white ethnic" neighborhoods, almost all the whites there are very assimilated whitebread types. Meanwhile it's worth noting that ethnic enclaves in major cities often do in fact vote Republican. For example Mt. Greenwood in Chicago is one of the few Republican parts of the city, all the Italians in Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn, Northeast Philly, South Boston (not as Republican in presidential elections generally, but if there's a swing toward Republicans it's one of the first places to flip.) Meanwhile the white liberal parts of those cities are all very assimilated and "non-ethnic", just like the whites in the cities mentioned previously.

Think of a stereotypical Bernie Sanders supporter. Does that seem like someone who'd frequently celebrate their ethnic traditions and heritage?

Here's what I don't understand:

Not only is he not an American, but Hillary Clinton has all but locked up the Democratic nomination ANYWAY. Continuing to posts constantly about how just how terrible Sanders is and "OMG GUYS LOOK SOME IDIOT ON REDDIT OR TWITTER WHO SUPPORTS SANDERS JUST SAND SOMETHING STUPID" makes even less sense now and is just beating a dead horse.

So:

-Having an obsessive hatred of and spending much time attacking a presidential campaign in a country you don't live in: Strange and illogical.

-Having an obsessive hatred of a presidential campaign that's no longer relevant in terms of actually winning the nomination or making that person President: Strange and illogical.

-Having an obsessive hatred of a presidential campaign that's no longer relevant in terms of actually winning the nomination or making that person President AND is in a country you don't live in: I honestly don't even have words.

The same arguments (in reverse) apply to ProgCanadian and Shadows, ftr.

I don't disagree, but I can understand someone who SUPPORTS said campaign more because they're probably just delusional and in denial over it.

But I can't understand why someone would feel the need to spend so much time and energy to bashing an effectively defeated campaign in a country they don't even live in. I mean even if Sanders is THAT TERRIBLE, he's also essentially harmless at this point.
