TBF, Seriously strikes me as more of a 'Walmart/Facebook conservative' than a pasty edgelord living in his Mom's basement, as is the alt-right archetype.

Keeping source formatting even though it looks ridiculous at the place where you're reposting it because reasons...

I'm enjoying the near perfect inverse correlation between Trump's polling numbers and the vitriol level of Seriously's nonsensical attacks on Hillary Clinton each day.

A white person claiming colourblindness is one of the most ignorant, tone deaf, and ridiculously self-congratulatory things I can think of.

A white conservative from the South, no less.  The lack of self-awareness is stunning.

Most importantly, how will this affect the plot of future seasons of OITNB?
5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: More improbable: Trump winning the presidency or Matt Santos from West Wing? on: August 23, 2016, 01:10:16 pm
That election was basically a foreshadowing of the RL 2008 election, and the show runners basically admitted as much.  At least in terms of Santos being based largely on Obama.

Open those offices, Hillary and get down to campaigning in Utah!

#battlegroundutah was fun while it lasted, but you should be embarrassed your nominee is only pulling in 39% in Utah.

I wish if Donald Trump were to announce he's a Dem plant, he would also announce that he has donated all the money he embezzled from his campaign donors directly to Democratic and pro-Clinton superPACs.

Hitler was a vegetarian dog-lover who liked to paint, so IMO he's closer to Jill Stein IMO

These fast-moving rivers aren't sending us their best people, folks.  They're sending drunk people, they're sending drugs, they're bad swimmers.  It's unbelievable.

I really don't think Wulfric understands how anything works.

You know what I found even more icky than incest? Transgenderism.

That's a... problematic opinion.

There is no grey area. It's wrong, and if you disagree, your "morality" is below the level of human dignity.

Exactly. There are plenty of gay friends of mine who called me a bigot because when I hear about a mother and son in a sexual relationship, I want to throw up.

Wanting to throw up is one thing.  Wanting to keep the activity illegal is another, and nobody has yet put forward a convincing argument in favor of that that doesn't just rely on the first point.

HOLY sh**t, LOL, yes they have!  You're just ignoring them.

For one, multiple people have touched on what should be a universally accepted truth: this is not consent, as a son or daughter cannot give true consent to his or her parent by the very nature of the term.  They're inherently unequal.

I said convincing argument.  I've yet to see one.

In an earlier reply to me, you referred to a "natural dynamic" between a parent and their offspring - regardless of the latter's age - that removes consent as we typically understand it.  Can you explain what you mean by that, given that your argument appears to hinge on it?

And in what sense do you see them as "inherently unequal"?  Their age?  That's a given, but once again we're talking about two people both over the statutory age of consent.

The only "universally accepted truth" I see here is the ickiness of it, which believe me I accept too.  But the legality of it is another matter.

Let's not post fake polls. I thought we had our fill with Overtime.

What ever happened with that, in the end?

Tommy Thompson was more embarrassing, given that he won four terms in office, which only ended when he won promotion to the Cabinet.  Strickland served only one term which ended in defeat.  Thompson had a much higher fall from grace.

I wish, I could have that job.


Not sure if self-aware, or...?
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Customer refuses to tip Latina server, exclaiming "WE ONLY TIP CITIZENS" on: August 22, 2016, 01:00:36 am
The solution of course, is to rid ourselves of the ridiculous tipping culture and just add a service charge to the restaurant bill. Make the prices tax-inclusive, too.

Or, you know, pay servers the same decent wage as everybody else in the service industry, instead of passing on the cost of employment from the employer to the customer.  Like everywhere else.

I'm still curious to know who's doing their sock hunting these days.


Also I'm curious when the mods are going to bother joining the dots between Abraham Washington and Straha.

It's not his fault he's black, obviously.

wtf

This entire post was terrible, and you should feel bad for posting it.  You won't, but you should.

This is literally only a Clinton or Trump choice.

Because he said literally? Really?

In the full context of my post, which Wulfric left out, there is nothing incorrect about my post.  Though it might not hold up against the autism factor, I'll admit.

Traitor to his own movement, at least Ron Paul had the decency to tell people to vote their conscious.

Did you support Sanders in the primaries, otherwise not understanding how you could call him a traitor to the movement?

I did not, but I can see when Robb Stark was betrayed at the red wedding, and not been betrayed myself.

Traitor to his own movement, at least Ron Paul had the decency to tell people to vote their conscious.

yeah, he should support an orange billionaire who espouses everything he despises about the current system because CONSCIENCE. smart

No, I'm saying he should've told people to vote for the person they thought best represented their beliefs. Also, you forget that there are more than a hundred presidential candidates, not just two.

There are only two with even a remote chance of winning.  When Johnson, Stein, or anybody else start polling in the 30s% or so, we can talk.  Until then this is literally only a Clinton or Trump choice.

remote /=/ realistic. Defintion of remote: " of a chance or possibility) unlikely to occur."

Yeah, it's not at all likely that Johnson or Stein would win the election. But both will be on state ballots totaling more than 400 EVs, and Johnson should be on every state's ballot. Both candidates have actual electors that would be appointed to vote for those candidates if they were to win states or ME/NE CDs. Johnson doesn't even have to reach 270 EVs, as the house might select him as a "compromise choice" if there is no electoral majority. All you need to do to have a "possibility" of winning the election is to be on enough ballots, and Johnson and Stein are. That it's incredibly unlikely doesn't matter because remote means unlikely. Remote does not mean realistic or logical. It just means possible. 

This is not "literally only" a Clinton or Trump choice.

When you're about to spend as much time and effort into a post about fantasy scenarios (with a dash of grammar Nazism) as you just did, you should strongly consider if it will be worth it.  This, for example, was not.
