1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How do you think the debate next week will turn out? on: July 29, 2015, 01:17:28 pm
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.
2  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.

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.

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.

It's not that people forgot, it's that nobody is taking him seriously and for good reason.

So, basically little to nothing has changed then except for Sawx being made a mod?

...Sawx has been temporarily banned for gross misconduct and his removal as a moderator is currently pending.

Can't say I'm surprised, but we need better screening of moderators.

18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark) on: July 15, 2015, 10:51:36 pm
Should he be on the radar for 2020 or 2024?  He seems to be a likable Republican and a rising star in the ranks.  Should he or is he on the radar?  He's young enough that he could be a factor for 20, 24, and even 28 if he stays relevant and stays out of trouble.

20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President Obama commutes 46 non-violent drug offenders' sentences. on: July 14, 2015, 08:34:52 pm
This may have been mentioned somewhere, so forgive me if it has, but President Obama is going to visit the federal prison in El Reno, Oklahoma which is just west of Oklahoma City on Thursday to talk with prison workers and inmates as part of his homestretch push to reform the criminal justice system.  He will be the first sitting president to visit a federal prison.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President Obama commutes 46 non-violent drug offenders' sentences. on: July 13, 2015, 03:20:16 pm
You've got to start somewhere.  And remember, folks, Obama still has another 18 months in office, so I can almost guarantee there will be plenty more where that came from.

23  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: The annual when do schools start in your area thread on: July 12, 2015, 03:03:32 pm
I like to keep up with what's going on in my community and that includes the school system.  One of my biggest political issues is education even though I don't have a child in school.  I have friends who do have kids in the public school system and I care about what's going on in the schools.

There was no need in someone reporting the original post.  It was not update-related and it did not violate any of the ToS.
24  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / The annual when do schools start in your area thread on: July 12, 2015, 10:27:15 am
I like to do this every year to see when schools start around the country.

Oklahoma City kids are already starting to wind down their summer.  With their continuous learning calendar, they start back to school on August 3.  Other schools including my collegiate alma mater, my high school, and Tulsa Public Schools start the third week of August between August 17 and 20.

What about in your area?

I can't wait until the August Republican debate featuring Trump.

That will be quite the spectacle.  I envy those in the audience that evening.
