1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Comcast and TWC still trying to stifle any potential competitors on: August 30, 2014, 06:30:05 pm
USTelecom's hilarious suggestion that states ban local municipalities from establishing publicly owned broadband providers out of concern for the 'taxpayers' makes a lot of sense, as those taxpayers would then not be sending all of their money to Comcast, rather than receiving a superior service.  Comcast will always look out for its customers, er, the 'taxpayers.'  Maybe not look after, but definitely look out.

Obama definitely sounds reassuring in those remarks, and he's right.  There are always going to be a lot of problems occurring all over the world.  He is an effective and realistic manager, task delegator, and leader, working hard to achieve progress wherever possible.

Robert Stark, Yates, Kyle Mercado, they're all pretty horrible.

I talk about urine and fecal matter fairly openly, including with my staff, because that's the sort of friendly, jovial atmosphere I like to cultivate.  That's a 'yes' from me.

7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Best Democratic nominee since 1945: Truman or McGovern? on: August 20, 2014, 04:45:56 am
Considering that McGovern lost the popular vote by like 23pts, what sort of definition of 'best' are we talking about here?

The most representative of what average Democrats on Atlas Forum want in policy from a presidential nominee.  I mean, it couldn't be yearning back to their inept and gaffe ridden campaign.  It blows my mind that Nixon even thought their HQs and events were worth sabotaging.
8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Polls on Same-Sex Marriage State Laws on: August 20, 2014, 04:29:47 am
I doubt any parent ever launched a party while learning their kid was gay.

I wouldn't throw a "My daughter is a prostitute" or "My son is a car thief" party, either.

Those examples aren't on the same level as homosexuality at all.  Seems like a strange comment to make.

I went skydiving yesterday.  It was incredible.
10  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Did your mother keep or change her name when she got married? on: August 16, 2014, 11:08:31 pm
She hyphenated it, I think having already accomplished work in her field before marrying being part of the impetus for that.
11  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: How would you react to this story (see 1st post) on: August 16, 2014, 03:25:51 am
Can't vote since I wouldn't put mayo on my sandwich.

In any case, if I were working at a friggin' McDonald's, I'd be bored as Hell too. A swastika would give even butter coverage to all four quadrants of the bun and is probably a Great Leap Forward in terms of efficiency. When you're stuck with a mind-numbing, soul-killing job like working at McDonald's, I wouldn't be surprised to hear people doing far worse than this.

That's preposterous, and as someone who worked there for several years, I would have taken it very seriously had an employee done something like this.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What will Colleen Hanabusa do now that she lost the U.S Senate primary? on: August 11, 2014, 03:03:27 pm
Talking about the next move for a Hawaii Republican seems rather futile. Wink
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Who will win the Hawaii Democratic Primary? on: August 09, 2014, 09:25:04 pm
I have a feeling this is going to be a bad year for the Democratic party.  Hanabusa will manage to win, unfortunately.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pelosi chases Tom Marino (R-PA) across House floor on: August 02, 2014, 04:37:11 pm
you republicans are just jealous that it was our floor leader pulling a Frank Underwood since Boehner is too effeminate to do so

Boehner would just sit back down and cry orange tears like the sloppy drunk that he is.

He is clearly an alcoholic, isn't he?  Has that ever been confirmed or does he just walk around in broad daylight like that with no concern for the decorum of the Congress?

62%
16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Gov. Mary Fallin (R-OK) is sweating right now... on: August 02, 2014, 04:29:08 pm
I wasn't aware that Mary Fallin has personally contributed to the destruction of the sacred family unit.  Thanks to Panda Express for cluing me in.

Frankly, if we can't expect Ms. Fallin to honor her commitments, how on earth would she be able to govern a state?  She clearly can't do it, as evidenced by the terrible job that she is doing.  It makes a lot more sense now.

Gosh, you missed out on the last application window?  Maybe one of the moderators will die on their next honeymoon - keep yer eyes peeled!

Bless you, President Obama.  A tidal wave of healthcare has swept across coal country. 

It's nice to see some good news in these times of economic and environmental uncertainty.

The fact that he goes to Oxford just makes his posts worse.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pelosi chases Tom Marino (R-PA) across House floor on: August 01, 2014, 08:56:44 pm
Pelosi has accepted Marino's apology.

Nope.

Why not?

Did you guys get your results immediately on the website or in your email?

The site, I don't think I had to provide an e-mail address.  I also took the sexuality test, and was about to take another and started to feel the pangs of yearning for a world beyond

Now that there is a Mitt Romney 2016 megathread, and for the record, I do not believe for a moment that Mitt will run for President in 2016, or ever again, but that aide, for the purposes of sheer speculation, let us say that Mitt did run in 2016, knowing what we know now, who would be the best running mate for Mitt?

Give your reasons for your choice or choices if you like.

I thought you would like this thread my friend. If Mitt doesn't run, who might he endorse?

Indeed, this entire forum owes  you a debt of gratitude for this magnificent thread.

You had a wonderful idea and demonstrated great foresight in creating this thread to discuss one of America's great leaders.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Willard "Mitt" Romney 2016 megathread on: July 15, 2014, 01:45:24 am
Mitt Romney is the best presidential candidate in the last 100 years.  He's also a wonderful person non-politically speaking.  He loves his wife, is a terrific father, always sets good examples, and is just a warm, caring person.  Honestly, his dear father is looking down from Heaven and is so proud of his exemplary son.

That is some of your finest work.
