2008 was very exciting, 2012 was a f[inks]ing blast.

Pure Land Buddhism or Conservadox Judaism.

A different form of hipster Christianity.

You're no fun.

Fine then. ELCA Lutheran.

My opinion of Hillary has gone from "meh" to this:

How about using it only when doing so results in the minimal ambiguity? No need to use it or reject it all the time.

How telling it is that blue avatar hacks and jfern are indistinguishable.

Also contrary to popular belief, Elliott is not, and never has been, a coal county (it sits just outside the coal belt.)

My reaction at the events in Turkey:



But I told you guys already 3-5 years ago what a megalomaniac Islamo-Fascist tool Erdogan was and still is (while posters like Lief, BRTD etc. all backed this douche), so the events right now are no surprise really.

It would have been better if this moron were ousted in the coup, but often things don't work that way.

Uh, I've never liked Erdogan.

F[Inks] no.

Gulen easily. His form of Islam is like mainline Protestantism.

I think the biggest enemy of this one is weather. I've already chatted with people commenting that they don't forsee as much activity in Minnesota in the winter for obvious reasons.
63  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Dianne Feinstein officially opposes pot legalization in California on: July 17, 2016, 12:02:27 am
Thank God, for the democrats that stand up as against the libertarian orthodoxy. Pot does not need to be legalized, nor should it, this is essentially so some college kids can do whatever the f*k they want, and be stoners.

Its also so millions of non-violent people who are only doing harm to themselves aren't considered criminals anymore. But that's way less important than being able to do whatever the f**k people want.

That can be solved by decriminalization though, not necessarily legalization.

I'd vote yes on legalization if it was on the ballot, but I really couldn't care less either way. Decriminalization is the much higher priority in my mind.

But marijuana is already decriminalized in California, in order to deflate support at the last referendum a law was passed which makes it not punishable by anything but a citation and fine and a speeding ticket would likely give a bigger fine. Full legalization is the only step further you can take.
64  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will One Nation Conservatism arrive in America anytime soon? on: July 16, 2016, 11:55:44 pm
We already have a one-nation conservative party in the United States: it's called the Democratic Party.  Really, only the Bernie wing of the party wouldn't be virtually interchangeable with, say, much of the Torie Party in the UK.
Oh God leave this nonsense #analysis off Atlas.
65  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Is it hypocritical for SJW bands to have sex with female show attendees on tour? on: July 16, 2016, 08:38:13 pm
There was just a spirited debate about this on another forum.

FWIW I know of at least one hyper-SJW/feminist band where some members had sex with prostitutes in Amsterdam on tour.

Doesn't this presume that there's a singular SJW ideology?

I use the term in this context to refer to hyper-PC, constant buzzword dropping, "all liberal, all the time" politically hardcore bands.

For south Minneapolis sure.
70  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Kemalism on: July 16, 2016, 04:12:40 pm
Wonderful Idealogy

If an American leader treated Christianity the way Kemal treated Islam, you'd be up in arms.

Actually the US's laws regarding church/state separation aren't much different. The real difference is that Christianity isn't really all that "rules" focused in comparison to Islam or Judaism and Christianity is far easier to function separately from the state.

No way this was a US-backed coup. Far too bumbling.

73  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Which religions seek to actively convert people (besides Christianity & Islam)? on: July 15, 2016, 11:34:55 pm
You know, I just realized that Hinduism would count, if you count Tulsi Gabbard's sect as Hindu (some Hindus wouldn't.)

Not only do are they virtually exclusively made up of western converts, they had their own "scene" for a brief period based around some NYC bands that had some guys who converted and then some other people in the scene thought it was cool, like a parallel Christian hardcore. Actually it even predates Christian hardcore come to think of it.

One of those things that's just so hard to believe when you hear it, but is absolutely true.
74  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Opinion of the Gülen movement on: July 15, 2016, 11:22:17 pm
Freedom Movement. They sound a lot better than most of Islam, in fact closer to "hipster Islam" based on some things I've read than perhaps anything else in Islam except taqwacore. Except for that they're led by an eccentric 75-year old than an eccentric person who wasn't even middle aged when they founded it, but hey I'll take them over any mainstream Sunni or Shi'ite clerics.
75  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Dianne Feinstein officially opposes pot legalization in California on: July 15, 2016, 02:46:30 pm
Lol, Atlas.

How many 83 year olds in elected office are for pot legalization?  This really has to be one of the worst places for political analysis.

Ron Paul is 80 and Bernie Sanders is 74. Not that far off.
