I'm assuming gay conversion therapy?

That's one example, but there's others too. There's a lot of "faith-based" programs that use various forms of violence and torture.

Such as?

There is one in northern Indiana. I took part in a protest to try to have it shut down.

28  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Less support for right-wing causes on the ground than before? on: February 27, 2017, 02:54:23 pm
Does anyone else see far less support for right-wing causes on the ground than, say, 20 years ago?

I used to see a lot of support for it back then, say, in the 1990s. The past 10 years or so, maybe longer, I just don't see much support for it on the ground. By that, I mean among people you see in person in the regular course of life.

Maybe it's only in more urban areas. I live in Bellevue, KY, which is clearly urban. But the county hasn't gotten much less Republican at the presidential level. It has a little, but not much. My state rep is now a Democrat though.

Policywise, the county actually recently adopted a somewhat progressive heroin program that it never would allowed 20 years ago. My jaw just about hit the floor when county commissioners approved it.

I have an idea for an amendment that I think is sorely needed.

In recent years, there's been a pandemic of people hiding behind freedom of religion to abuse people in their care. What I'm talking about specifically is "faith-based" residential "treatment" centers for young people. The people running them often abuse kids, and then they escape any kind of criminal charges by arguing that they're just practicing religious freedom. Some states simply won't regulate "faith-based" programs.

I would like to see this abuse stopped, and I think an amendment may be necessary because of activist judges siding with the abusers.

If he reached the 20s, the GOP has an existential crisis on its hands. If he somehow reached the 10s, the GOP would be replaced completely.

What happens if he gets below 10?

How low do you think it would be if The Media didn't cheer everything he does?
33  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: February 10, 2017, 11:09:14 am
Again, reading this forum gives false predictors. Going by the posts on this forum, 2014 was going to be a decent year for Dems, Jack Conway was going to be Gov of KY, and 2016 was going to be a DEM landslide. Why believe you now?

Because 'we, the people" are the boss, and we get to decide these things.

LOL, West Virginia.

Not surprising.

Every country has their own Carinthia or Saxony ...

It's like that province in Moldova that won't abandon Soviet-style communism.

The purple areas in Oregon might be Mormon.
36  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / State with longest streak of picking popular vote winner on: February 09, 2017, 07:44:24 pm
Am I correct in saying Ohio is the state with the longest streak of picking the electoral vote winner?

What about popular vote? The only state I can think of is New Mexico, and I can't think of any other state that's even close.

The Buckeye State shows little tolerance for corruption and scandal.

Mostly, but the Cincinnati suburbs seem to put up with it quite a bit.

South Carolina still has that many Democrats?
39  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which States have recently voted down Voucher Ballot Measures? on: February 02, 2017, 05:20:09 pm
So California voted on it again after saying no the first time?

Which States have recently voted down Voucher Ballot Measures? 

I'm pretty sure Utah did just a few years ago. I thought California did maybe 20 years ago.

So what's with those Trump precincts in Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx?

It is not part of the government's duties.

Then what is?
43  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What is the main argument against a Non-Profit Health Insurance Option? on: January 28, 2017, 12:38:40 pm
Evilness from the same people who think all schools should be privatized.

Quinnipiac

Approve 36%   
Disapprove 44%

Sad!

Plus, Quinnipiac is one of the most Republican major pollsters around. Didn't they have Mitt Romney winning in 2012?

Clearly he is. The Bushes were too.

Haha, Rasmussen, what a joke.
47  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What is the best way to deal with left wing violence? on: January 23, 2017, 10:39:39 pm
What left-wing violence?
48  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: January 23, 2017, 04:09:40 pm
George H.W. Bush only had a 6% disapprove? I never did approve, and I actually have close family members who felt the same way.

I'm reading about it on Wikipedia. According to Wikipedia, Celebration is a "community development district." Only property owners are allowed to vote, and each of them gets one vote per acre that they own.

That has got to be unconstitutional.

So Celebration voted for Trump? That comes as a bit of a surprise.

Why wouldn't it? Isn't the whole town just one huge corporation?
