Is the Senate actually gonna pass this crap?

Vouchers = unconstitutional

I've warned people about this for 30 years. Did they listen? No. They'd rather laugh in my face.

Socialism would recession-proof the economy.
30  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Why was Rhode Island so close? on: April 23, 2017, 05:46:33 pm
This one is a mystery to me. Trump even won a county there, which no Republican has been able to do since Reagan.
31  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: April 13, 2017, 12:34:46 pm
Why is there so much more variance in trump's approval polls than Obama's? Rasmussen, politico, and CBS all find him around -4 on average, while gallup has been -11-12 for a while.

These days, CBS is essentially another Fox News in their coverage.

Minorities are disproportionately represented among the under $50k category

But they are still working-class.
33  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: April 12, 2017, 10:52:46 am
Trump job approval margin by income:
under $50k: -7
$50-100k: +9
over $100k: +23

"Butbutbut Trump is working-class buhhh."
34  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should sugary drinks and soda be taxed? on: April 10, 2017, 07:16:03 pm
No. But it's not the end of the world - as long as soda that contains poisons like aspartame is taxed too.

I know soda rotted my teeth, but that's just life. I'd rather have holes in my teeth from sugar than cancer from aspartame.
35  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which states have the worst state Democratic Party? on: April 09, 2017, 08:18:33 am
Kentucky has one of the few that deliberately refuses to run candidates for winnable seats. Their argument is that by running candidates, they might cause Republicans to show up and vote in other races.

A couple years ago, they let Republicans run unopposed for a major county judge-executive race, which was an open seat.

Gallup

Approve 40% (+-0%)
Disapprove 54% (+-0%)

So his attempt to improve his numbers by bombing Syria failed.
37  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do you support the missile strikes on Syria? on: April 06, 2017, 10:53:49 pm
These missile strikes are so dumb.
38  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rahm Emanuel wants to require acceptance letters for high school graduation on: April 05, 2017, 02:45:00 pm
This has to be one of the dumbest ideas in history.
39  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: April 03, 2017, 10:32:17 am
Some people with unstable minds might make a jump, but there aren't that many unstable people under normal situations. A catastrophe might send someone from strong approval to strong disapproval, but such is not normal politics.

I'm not so sure if big jumps are that uncommon. When Bill Clinton endorsed school uniforms, I made a pretty big jump.
40  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which Democratic Party factions are most ANNOYING to you? on: April 01, 2017, 10:55:04 am
You forgot to mention the DLC/Third Way faction, which has completely ruined the party.

I can't imagine he's above water here, at least if you consider the white working class his "base", which is absurd on its face.

I know someone - a white male - who is in his 60s and retired from a blue-collar job not too long ago. He says Trump is "beyond horrible."
42  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you own a e-Bike ? on: March 30, 2017, 09:31:46 pm
I just buyed an electric bike a couple months ago. I did this because my area has some real terrain problems.

Best all, Kentucky is one of very few states where electric bikes are banned. But I don't care.
43  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why aren't hate groups banned in the U.S.? on: March 30, 2017, 09:11:13 pm
Gangs conspire to commit crimes.  Unless a group conspires to do more than simply hate, there's no crime that's being committed.

Hate groups commit hate crimes.
44  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why aren't hate groups banned in the U.S.? on: March 30, 2017, 08:55:25 pm

If the 1994 crime law can ban gang membership, surely it's constitutional to ban hate groups.
45  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Why aren't hate groups banned in the U.S.? on: March 30, 2017, 08:46:54 pm
So many normal countries (like Canada and Germany) ban hate groups. Why hasn't the U.S. banned them?

Also, the U.S. has got to be one of very few countries where members of hate groups are allowed to own guns. Why? I'm pro-Second Amendment, but that's ridiculous.

I'm hoping some smart sheriff rounds up hate group members in their county and lowers the boom on them.

"Butbutbutbut Morning Insult must be a Dummycrat poll, they had Matt Bevin with 32% lolololol!"
47  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: March 13, 2017, 10:07:57 am
Crazy theory could he start doing worse in Rasmussen because consertives are more pissed over the health care bill?

I think those who think the bill isn't conservative enough are so extreme that there just aren't that many people who think that way. We're talking Tea Party stuff here.
48  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: March 10, 2017, 03:37:43 pm
lol...Reuters goes positive while Rassmussen goes negative. WTF

Reuters has been a right-wing organ for a long time.

Here's another recent poll from Trafalgar Group (about several SC issues, which had Trump's approval buried in it as well) and which was the most accurate pollster in 2016:

South Carolina (Trafalgar Group, Feb.27-March 2)

58% approve
35% disapprove

We should just ignore anything from the Awfulgar Group.
50  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is condescending conservative anti-city rhetoric a bug or a feature? on: February 28, 2017, 06:13:58 pm
This isn't completely new. When I was growing up in the '80s, rich suburbanites liked to portray city dwellers as dirty and rough.
