1  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Vega on: October 22, 2014, 11:05:23 pm
I googled that email address when someone asked if he was a sock, and posted what I found on the mod board.  I never mentioned it anywhere else, but I guess it got out anyway, because, #modleaks.

I don't see anything that suggests that he's a sock.  Whatever weirdness he wants to get involved in on other websites is his business.

I think there are two separate things here:

1) Slavish devotion to a particular politician or political party.
2) Outlandish political predictions that favor said politician or political party.

Winfield, for example, is the uber-Mitt Romney hack, if we're going by the first criterion.  However, there are certainly others who would exceed him on criterion #2.  He did sometimes concede that Romney might not win the nomination (because the GOP primary electorate might be too stupid to understand how awesome he was) or the general election (because the general electorate might be too stupid to understand how awesome he was).  I think Politico outdid him on #2 by quite a bit.  Though it's been a while, so I might be misremembering.

There's definitely some weird issue with his identity.  In the Japanese version of Street Fighter II, he's a Thailand-based endboss to the whole game, whereas in the American version, he's a Spanish cage fighter.

Tweed, I will say this is a globally respected defense contractor.  If this plays out with either 3 or 6 months, it will really boost my resume.  I know what to do this time and I will practice every night for a while.

alright, sounds good man.  good luck.  what scares you about what Mondale might do?

Contact the employer on Facebook and try to badmouth Bushie.  Given Mondale's past behavior (re: contacting Maisha Orphanage and the like), this is not an unfounded concern.  Though Mondale may have lost interest by now.

Huckabee's also in Iowa, and talking about running:

Quote
The Republican winner of the 2008 Iowa Caususes says without a doubt he's looking at it. "I'd be dishonest and disingenuous to say "on no, it has never crossed my mind'," said Mike Huckabee, (R) Former Arkansas Governor. "It has very much crossed my mind. I'm very seriously contemplating whether I should make another go in '16. There are some encouraging signs, and some of them are right here in Iowa. But, it's a big step, and not one that I want to take until after we get through this election cycle."

Huckabee says he'll make his decision by the spring.

If this job is in OKC, can you just break the lease in Tulsa and move out of there, presumably paying some sort of penalty?  How high would such a penalty be?  Cheaper than maintaining two separate apartments for all this time?  Or is breaking the lease legally impossible?

Impose a travel ban on those countries, and people would just go through a third country and lie about where they're coming from.  Thus we'd get more cases where people who should be monitored for having traveled there slip through the cracks, and risk infecting others.

If you don't get a job offer tomorrow, will you apply for one of the pizza delivery jobs that Memphis recommended?  You can always quit that if you subsequently get a CADD job.

http://thehill.com/policy/transportation/221293-rubio-to-introduce-ebola-travel-ban-legislation

Quote
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) plans to introduce legislation banning travel between the U.S. and three West African countries hardest hit by the deadly Ebola virus, his office announced Monday.
.
.
.
Rubio said the virus should be addressed "at its source" by temporarily banning new travel visas for those coming from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone.

"This ban on issuance of visas does not mean we will be completely cutting off the affected countries from the outside world," Rubio said.

"We must continue to increase our assistance to those countries as they struggle to contain this outbreak. That is, ultimately, the only way we will be able to stop this outbreak and keep Americans safe from this horrible disease," he added.

As I recall, Lincoln came out the same year as The Dark Knight Rises.  With Joseph Gordon-Levitt playing Robert Todd Lincoln in this movie, I thought it should have ended the same way that The Dark Knight Rises did (spoiler for The Dark Knight Rises follows, but highlight text to reveal):

Lincoln "dies", and Joseph Gordon-Levitt becomes the new Lincoln.

Oddly, many people here seem to think that every troll is a sock, as if there's some very small pool of people who might be bad posters, and so it must just be the same people who come here under different accounts over and over.

Granted, we have had folks like Atheist2006 and Vegetaboi and the like who've come back about 20 times each.  But there are still non-sock trolls who show up all the time.

Yeah I don't get it either. Like the Link=Einzige accusations, it simply makes no sense whatsoever and has zero basis in evidence.

I think it's just that there've been several high profile trolls (e.g., "barfbag") who *did* in fact turn out to be socks of previous posters, so now everyone is on guard and throws sock accusations around willy nilly, because they don't want to get "fooled" by someone again.  Also, having a poster turn out to be a sock account is a fast track way for the account to be banned, so there's some wishful thinking going on.

why has Thune dropped off the radar so dramatically as a national possibility?

The 2012 bench was thinner, and other's who would occupy Thune's niche have taken his place.  Also, his decision not to run in 2012 signalled that he was more interested in building his career in the Senate than running for prez.  The fact that his seat is up in 2016 makes it even less likely that he'll run this time.

Trump is in Iowa, and comments on the possibility of running for president:

Quote
"Well we're gonna see what happens," Trump said at a press conference with Rep. Steve King in Iowa, according to a Des Moines Register video. "We'll see who's running, we're going to see what happens first of all in the next month because that's going to be very interesting and after that we'll make a decision sometime after the beginning of the year."

So your parents prefer you make $0 an hour than make something under $11 for the time being? Do you realize how silly that sounds? I can't believe they actually said something like that.

And you're 32, if you want to work and make some money on your own, do it. It's ridiculous you keep saying things like "we" when discussing your life. It's your life. You're a grown man.

Par for the course for Bushie.  Remember, he moved back to OK and took the CADD class because his father told him to.  "If it was just up to me, I would have probably stayed in Utah….", etc., etc.

In any case, Bushie, if you don't get a job offer tomorrow, will you apply for one of the pizza delivery jobs that Memphis recommended?  You can always quit that if you subsequently get a CADD job.

"Losing twice" doesn't matter if he'd simply lost the nomination.  He'd still be able to argue that he might be a good general election candidate if he'd only be given the chance.  The more relevant issue is losing once in the general election.  That's the killer.

Yeah, primary polls that poll all voters as opposed to just one party or the other aren't really primary polls.  I normally don't post them here.
