From the geographic breakdown, there's a very real chance Grimes could win Campbell County. I can't remember the last time a Democratic Senate candidate won Campbell County. (Didn't David Williams even win it in 1992?)

Jesse T. Smith, who is running against Republican Rep. Mike Rogers wrote the greatest country on earth is being bullied from within. Actions of Republicans in congress are worse than #ISIL.

The truth hurts.
28  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Why no Democrat running in Alabama? on: September 04, 2014, 11:47:28 am
Because a Democrat can't win in Alabama.

A Democrat would have a tough time in lots of places all over America, but people still need a choice.

Otherwise, it's not democracy.

From wiki; "He was the only candidate to file before the deadline and as such he will be unopposed in the primary and general elections.[1]

Sounds like Soviet-style communism to me.

Well, in the 2004 Kentucky Senate race, the Republican was up by around 15 points at this time. He won by 1.

I was too young to really follow senatorial politics in 2004 so I could be wrong but wasn't the guy in 2004 senile and made gaffe after gaffe?

As if McConnell isn't?
31  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Why no Democrat running in Alabama? on: September 04, 2014, 11:29:58 am
Why in the Wide, Wide World Of Sports is there no Democrat running for Senate in Alabama?

Is there a Green candidate? If not, who are progressives supposed to vote for?

The fact that there's only one candidate sounds like something straight out of the Soviet Union.

I haven't been following this race at all. How in God's name is this happening in Kansas? I'm still amazed that Brownback is in trouble, none the less that this race is in such weird shape Tongue.

I think the Tea Party just went so overboard in Kansas that people finally took notice.

Once in a great while, that happens.
33  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: KY-CNN: McConnell +4 on: September 03, 2014, 04:47:32 pm
Isn't Grimes going through a "bizarre scandal" of her own? The issue with her campaign bus?

The only people who care about the campaign bus "scandal" is the right-wing media that's determined to elect McConnell.
34  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: KY-CNN: McConnell +4 on: September 03, 2014, 04:12:45 pm
The only way Grimes wins is if she sweeps whatever debates are held, or if there's some kind of bizarre scandal that works in her favor.  A very thin line to walk.  

McConnell himself is a bizarre scandal.
35  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Making what is "bad" not bad? on: September 02, 2014, 11:37:02 am
I think I've unlocked the secret of what liberals seem to be up to in America. They are trying to take things considered "bad" and make them seem okay.

For example, drugs. Growing up in a post-Reagan America with things such as "Just Say No" and "D.A.R.E." and films and TV shows showing how bad drugs were and how they could only lead to trouble, liberals often complain that so many people are in prison due to drugs. So instead of trying to stop drug use and enforce against it, they want to make it so that the bad thing people are doing is actually legal.

The recent Trayvon Martin shooting and Michael Brown situation ongoing are more examples. Many people began mentioning how hoodies are associated with a "thug" culture. This is true. Hoodies, baggy pants, ect. So instead of thinking, "Gee maybe we shouldn't wear these things so associated with negative culture" what do liberals do? They show "solidarity" by wearing the hoodies.

Basically it's like the bad stuff makes people realize they're not behaving and are becoming socially undesired by society so instead of changing, they are embracing the bad. It's the same as the analogy of saying, "There are so many murderers in jail, so let's make murder not be a crime anymore so that those people won't be shunned or looked down upon or feel shame, ect ect."

I think it's a terrifying road to go down.

Your post sounds like it's straight out of 1994 when people would actually buy into this authoritarianism. Sounds like my high school right after the 'Footloose' era.

The real 60 trillion dollar question is: Why would Romney be so popular in West Virginia when he's hated everywhere else (including states he actually won)?
37  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Americans both support unions and right to work laws on: August 31, 2014, 10:15:15 pm
I'd be dead by now if it wasn't for unions. That is literally true.

Hopefully the Benton story damages him in the next poll.

If it doesn't, we might as well just become a monarchy.
39  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Americans both support unions and right to work laws on: August 30, 2014, 01:51:49 pm
I want to know what would happen if you run a small business, and your religion requires you to allow unions and free bargaining. Wouldn't a "right-to-work" law violate freedom of religion?
40  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Americans both support unions and right to work laws on: August 30, 2014, 01:23:13 pm
If you think you shouldn't have to join a union, then don't join one. It's that simple.
41  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: McConnell's campaign manager resigns, due to bribery scandal on: August 30, 2014, 12:26:55 pm
Does anyone think this could impact the election?

Maybe a little. It highlights McConnell's culture of corruption, and if things like this keep happening, then sooner or later there will be a straw that breaks the camel's back.
42  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Americans both support unions and right to work laws on: August 29, 2014, 08:41:56 pm
I guess I'm in the majority, more or less.  I support the right of unions to exist, but I'm also a big fan of right to work laws.  You can have a union, but I'll thank you not to force me to be in it to have a gig.

Even without a so-called "right-to-work" law, you don't have to join a union.
43  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Americans both support unions and right to work laws on: August 29, 2014, 05:46:10 pm
Does Gallup even know what a "right-to-work" law is? They asked whether people would support a law that says people don't have to join a union. That's not a "right-to-work" law. There's already a federal law like this.

Right to work will come to West Virginia soon and Capito will be highly supportive of it, bank on it.

If the GOP wants to lose West Virginia, that's their problem.
45  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What would you spend $42 000 from your piggy-bank on? on: August 29, 2014, 11:29:39 am
I'd buy a vacant lot and let Occupy Cincinnati use it.

You'd only need about $42 to find a sufficiently large lot to accomodate Occupy Cincinnati.

Uh, its Facebook page has 4,000 fans.
46  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: WaPo: Mapping changes in the US youth population on: August 29, 2014, 01:31:41 am
You could drive through a lot of those youth-gaining counties in the Upper Midwest in one route: https://goo.gl/maps/B0Jqb

People are finally moving out of Appalachia and the Rust Belt. Thank god.

That's a little simplistic, though; compare WV and eastern KY to western VA and western NC.  Western VA really stands out, actually.

Yeah, the "right-to-work" areas are losing people.

If Shaheen would come out against "right-to-work" laws, that would tighten things up quite a bit.
49  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Well, does the Florida Democratic Party blow another one (through Crist?) on: August 28, 2014, 02:15:51 pm
Crist has hinted at repealing the "right-to-work" law. That helps him.

If Beshear is too old, McConnell is too. Fair is fair.
