You're a Troll Hack, not a partisan hack, though you are roughly average partisan

For a troll, I wrote some pretty long posts in this thread: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=28135.0

London is 76% white currently. However I understand that it's not like most American cities, it's more of a metro area than an actual city. It has inner-city type parts to it, but plenty of suburban type areas. So it's unlikely it will ever go minority-white.
60978  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 4 years ago...where were you? on: September 12, 2005, 12:15:22 pm
My senior year. First period: Physics. Went through like a normal class.

Second period: English. I came in and all I could hear kids talking about was that the World Trade Center had been hit by planes, apparentely not by accident. The teacher comes in and we all bug her to turn on the news. All we did that period was watch it. That basically continued for the remainder of the day in every class.

The majority of Russia's population is in Europe though. Although I bet most in Europe don't want them joining either.

F on everything.

Let me put it this way: In middle school I once got a score of 4 on a 70 point test. Bush's score would be even lower than that.

Democrats have a good chance to keep the Minnesota seat. Bush is very unpopular in Minnesota (39% approval?) and Kennedy votes with Bush something like 97% of the time. He is a total Bush clone and that won't play well in Minnesota.

100% correct. I have never heard anyone explain why Kennedy is such a great candidate.

At least Phil admitted Kennedy is only average. It'll be interesting to see how he runs a campaign, since he can't exactly run from Bush too easily.
60983  General Politics / International General Discussion / Should Turkey be allowed to join the EU? on: September 12, 2005, 09:55:33 am
No.

4 reasons:

-It's not really part of Europe
-Human rights record in Kurdistan
-Censorship and civil liberties. They just recentely arrested a journalist for writing about the Armenian genocide
-Northern Cyprus

What a worthless thread.

I strongly disagree; I'm not a contemporary of MarkDel, on the board, but his post was excellent.

I agree. My favorite parts were where he said we should forget partisan politics and put that behind us today, and then went on to describe "whacko liberals." Hypocrites can be so funny.

That's what I thought too.

Because the whites in those "liberal" states tend to live in very affluent areas. Plus there's the racial voting factor.

Iowa's one of the few states remaining where non-affluent rural whites actually vote their economic interest. Minnesota is another, which is how Kerry won the white vote here.

He does seem to think they are the mainsteam of feminists though, and almost any self-described feminist agrees with them.

Whatever the case, Gustaf confirmed all that needs to be confirmed.

Pretty miserable. Will those LDP bastards ever be removed for a significant amount of time? This is starting to look like Singapore.
60992  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Griswold vs. Connecticut on: September 11, 2005, 12:51:35 pm
No but it really doesn't matter since no state is dumb enough to outlaw birth control today anyway. Of course since such a law would have to be passed to overturn it, it will never be overturned.
60993  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: pro-choice vs. pro-life states on: September 11, 2005, 12:46:26 pm
Yeah, I wasn't sure on that.  I mean, Milwaukee must be hugely pro-choice, but the rest of the state is probably opposite.

Actually no. Milwaukee is a pretty socially conservative city. Their representative in Congress was a pro-life Democrat until he retired last election. The Kenosha/Racine area south of it is far more socially liberal. There are cities outstate that are far more socially liberal too, like Eau Claire and Oskosh.

The real source of social liberalism in Wisconsin is Madison and the surrounding area. But even with that, I would say Wisconsin leans pro-life.
60994  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: pro-choice vs. pro-life states on: September 11, 2005, 12:41:10 am
Not "far more" economically. Only slightly at most.

Yuschenko

Immunity: Clark

Although with only 10 remaining, shouldn't immunity be scrapped now?
60996  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Who will be Speaker of the House in 2007? on: September 10, 2005, 07:23:05 pm
House rules allow a Speaker to only serve 3 terms. Therefore, Hastert must step down after this term.

Next in line is DeLay, but it doesn't take a genius to see why that wouldn't be a very good idea for the GOP. Do they go ahead and give it to him anyway, or pick someone else? And who else would that be?
60997  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Should Republican Senate canidates distance themselves from Bush? on: September 10, 2005, 06:18:14 pm
Correct. So far I have yet to hear any argument about why Kennedy is such a great candidate when the most he's ever gotten in his own congressional district is 57%, about the same that Bush got last year. That isn't impressive.

Mark Kennedy will have to. Won't be easy with his voting record though.  All the Democrat needs to do is tie him to Bush and he's toast.
