I don't drink coffee that often, but when I do I take it straight black.

Bushy why the heck is your username Groucho Marx? Because you wouldn't want to join a club that accepted someone like you as a member?

Eh, I just like the Marx Brothers.  No other reason than that.

I just upgraded to 10 last week and so far I like it better than 7.  Personally, though, I had no problems at all with 8 so I didn't have all the negative views with 8 that most users did, though I can see where they come from.  I even liked 8 more than 7, so naturally I prefer 10 over 7.

We have two stations near where my parents live whose attendants still pump the gas for women who are by themselves as a courtesy, but are self service for everyone else.  The stations are owned by the same company and there is a full stock grocery store next door to one of the stations.  I think there may also be a third station in Little Axe, but that's 15-20 miles in the wrong direction for us or in a direction we never travel.

I agree with heatmaster that Bush has been off the debate stage for 13 years, so naturally he'd be a little rusty.  That said, I thought he came in third in the debate behind Rubio and Christie.  We'll have to see what the polling shows between now and the CNN debate.  I'm not a Bush fan, but I think he held his own at the debate.  It doesn't take much to outdo Trump.  Wasn't he also flanked by Huckabee on the left or was there one more between them?  It's not hard to outshine an emotional and gaffe-prone Huckabee (who also had a better-than-expected night, btw).

Bush's comments about women's health issues aren't going to help him keep from imploding.  Good for Hillary calling him out on that.  That said, Christie should consider himself very fortunate to get into the debate.  He deserves to be there more than Perry, Jindal, or Santorum, but he's not going to go very far in the primaries.  His negatives far outweigh his positives.

I'm not sure Jeb really thinks about how what he is saying sounds to his broader audience.

I'm not sure anybody does, to be perfectly honest.

I'm glad the site is operational again. I've been reading it since shortly after it launched in the summer of 2004. Here are his predictions for the last three presidential elections:

2004 - https://web.archive.org/web/20041102092512/http://www.electoral-vote.com/

2008 - https://web.archive.org/web/20081104061933/http://www.electoral-vote.com/

2012 - https://web.archive.org/web/20121103053725/http://www.electoral-vote.com/

Although the snapshot for 2012 is a bit before election day his final prediction was that Obama would win with 294 EV's.

Yikes. He really messed up 2004, sadly.

Hawaii for Bush? Shocked I know it was close, but...

In 2004 and 2008 early on he had Oklahoma going for Kerry and Obama.  We all know what happened with Oklahoma...

I'm looking forward to catching the debate on my DVR later Thursday night.  I just hope it doesn't turn into the Trump show.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Electoral-Vote.com is back on: August 04, 2015, 04:52:49 pm
It will be interesting to see whether or not his point about money allowing for longer primaries will be proven true.

I thought that was an interesting piece, too.  I do agree with him, though, that it very well could lead to a long and bitter primary season.  That and the fact there are 16 candidates to sift through.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Electoral-Vote.com is back on: August 04, 2015, 04:43:20 pm
I've always liked his analysis and like an earlier poster, I have been following it every cycle since 2004.  I even follow it during the midterm cycles.  I just read his analysis and he is pretty much spot on like usual.  I can't wait for him to update his maps and I do hope he starts posting regularly especially as we get closer to Iowa.

Thank you to the OP for reminding me of his site.  I hadn't looked at it since the midterms and I almost forgot.  I'm sure I would have remembered eventually, but thank you.

I hope it's a debate with fair questions to all candidates, but I have a bad feeling this is going to be the Trump show.
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary's declining favorability doesn't matter on: July 28, 2015, 05:00:48 pm
2016 is not 1992.  Also, the previous poster said it right.  The polls right now are virtually meaningless.  I mean, nobody seriously believes the Donald has a legitimate shot at the Republican nomination do they?  He's leading in the polls now, but he's going to flame out eventually if he or his aides keep making insensitive remarks.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why are the Kochs backing Walker? on: July 28, 2015, 04:57:39 pm
He's brazen about screwing over workers in favor of the bottom line in profits and low taxes.

I've seen a case where this is absolutely true right here in Tulsa.  Anybody who the Koch family supports I will not support.  They are a cancer within the Republican Party in much the same way as George Soros is a cancer within the Democratic Party.  Big money crooks who care more about big money than little workers.  The Kochs are a big reason I haven't fully switched to the Republican Party.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court declined to re-consider the case.  I am actually okay with this as it keeps the Satanic statue out of our state.

Will the NH forum be televised?

Yes, it'll be on C-SPAN (as well as local TV in New Hampshire).


Ok, thanks

It all depends whether I have next Thursday off.  The NH forum is out for me, but I can always DVR the kiddie and the adult debate if I miss them live.

Have you all checked your death point totals this morning?


It's not there.  I guess I went from 97 death points to N/A.

I think it's a decent method of dealing with offenders.  It's not perfect, but no system is flawless.  It can be subjective in its administering, but sometimes it has to be to determine exactly what category a particular offense falls into.  I agree it has gotten a lot better post-Inks, but again no matter what is done, Dave cannot make everyone happy.  There will always be dissenters no matter what he does.  If there is a better system out there, then I'm all for trying it out, but if the consensus is to keep the point system, I'd be okay with that, too.  I really don't have a strong opinion one way or the other.  I might lean toward keeping it, but I'm not adamant about it.

Says the guy whose idea it was.

I could be wrong, but it's institution had nothing to do with me.  I just supported it.
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is this a left, center-left, centrist, center-right, or right wing forum? on: July 26, 2015, 09:23:39 pm
Easily left-wing, maybe closer to far-left.  If you are right-wing or far right you are labeled as a closed minded, racist, bigoted, Bible thumping idiot and are subject to major backlash and are subject to banishment petitions because you are right wing (look at CCSF).

Bushie, are you thinking about switching your support to Trump?

Not a chance.  I can't stand the guy.  I am keep my support in Rand Paul's camp.  Now, I have not totally given up on Chris Christie and I wish him to do well, but I think Paul has a better chance at the nomination and the general than Christie.

I don't know if this is just a false hope by Trump (probably is) or if this is genuine, but he said on an interview that aired this weekend that he is considering skipping the first debate because he knows everybody will be gunning for him.  Is it true that he might skip the debate or is that just empty rhetoric and wishful thinking?

He's a total wimp if that's the case. He's the guy who likes to cast himself as "tough" more than anything, so I highly doubt it.

Kind of what I thought.  I just had to throw it out there.
