RIP Mr. King.  His legacy lives through his music.  I enjoy listening to his music.  I enjoy music from that era.

We're losing artists from his era at a rapid rate nowadays.  We seem to lose one every quarter or so.  Today's music just doesn't have the same appeal to me as the music from my parents' and grandparents' generations.

I don't think so unless Clinton flames out unexpectedly.  Biden knows he is viewed as yesterday's politician and wouldn't get many votes.  He might take Delaware and Pennsylvania from Hillary, but that'd be all.

What? Clinton didn't lay into her, Obama did. This is not about Clinton, it's about her being insulted and finally realizing that despite everything she's done, she's really powerless in the Senate on the ultimate, big questions.

I stand corrected.  I guess I should read the news a little closer, haha!

I don't think so, either.  Lizzy Warren is more aligned with Sanders than Clinton in the first place, so I think she would have supported Sanders in the primary even before Clinton laid into her.  This only reinforces that.

The question is will she support Clinton in the GE or will she stay home out of protest that Clinton is too moderate?

Good.  He can go back to being completely irrelevant now.  Not that running would have changed that any.

Showers and t-storms. My type of weather.

I agree, but is that all we're going to get? Should we build an arc?

It's funny you mention that.  I don't know if you saw on the news about the Tigers escapings from the Tiger Safari in Oklahoma last Wednesday when we had all the severe weather.  But, I had remarked that the animals were just looking for Noah... And found him... Lol

They might as well announce.  I don't know what they are waiting for.  Let's get this show on the road.

Bolton is announcing his decision tomorrrow. He'll do it online, with a conference call soon to follow.

His announcement feels like a non-event to me.

What does the Rain Departs mean for Western Oklahoma and Western Texas?  Does that mean the heavy rain those areas have now will begin to subside?  What about for temperatures in those areas?

It baffles me why candidates don't compete in Iowa.  To me, I would want to take advantage of every chance to grab delegates that I can.  Then again, I'm not a campaign manager.

"Nones" have jumped to 22.8%? Wow! I just want to see "Nones" enter the mainstream, which is what I think they are in the process of doing.

I'm sure that regular church attendees are overwhelmingly 60+, and it'll be interesting to see if this trend continues. I definitely think the evangelical conservative schtick is overall in lots of trouble, and indeed we see them lash out from time to time to let us know they are still kicking.

While the drop in Christian affiliation is particularly pronounced among young adults, it is occurring among Americans of all ages.

Fascinating. Where's that "IT'S HAPPENING" .gif? Tongue

What non-Christians don't realize is that Christianity will never be stamped out completely in America or anywhere in the world.  God always leaves a remnant of people in every generation who love Him, want to serve Him, and love His people.  Christianity will never become obsolete.  Evangelism will never be outdated.  As much as the government, atheists, or Muslims try to stop it, they can't.  Pure and simple.  The Bible and everything contained therein is a fact of life.  It doesn't apply to just its followers.  It applies to every single person in the world.  There will always be people who love God and want to keep his commandments.  There will always be people who disapprove of gay marriage.  All of the non-Christians have already lost the war.  The Bible declares Christians will have the ultimate and final victory.  It's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when will we realize that.

You are all assuming I am just going to pop in there and update about my life.  I am actually quite happy without any forum update.  And, the allowance of profanity completely turns me off.  I'll stay here on this forum and the other forum that you guys foolishly tried to invade.
91  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary's worst state? on: May 10, 2015, 07:24:45 pm
Bushie, in your view could Hillary take Cherokee County?

Tahlequah (the county seat of Cherokee County) has a tendency to be the least, or among the least, Republican county in the state.  It's definitely possible.  Is it likely?  Probably not, just based on the county sweeps in the last three cycles.  It is possible, though.
92  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary's worst state? on: May 10, 2015, 07:07:26 pm
I would probably say Wyoming or Utah, as well.  My vote went with Wyoming.  I can see her winning at least a couple or three counties in Oklahoma mainly in Eastern Oklahoma and the 2nd congressional district which tends to be more Democratic.  She might make a little progress in Oklahoma and Tulsa Cities over what Kerry and Obama managed, but the 2 or 3 counties should make us be not her worst, but still among her 5 worst states probably.  Utah outside of Summit and Salt Lake Counties will have a tough time going for Hillary.  I will have to ask our former Atlas resident, jamespol, who lives in Salt Lake City, about his early analysis on Utah's counties in 2016.

No, no, Bushie is a libertarian now. Rand Paul 2016!

When does he switch to Hillary? 

I've said this several times before, so I'm not going to beat a dead horse too much, but there are two possible Republican nominees that would cause me to vote for Hillary.  Those being Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz.

No, I went to a friends house.  He dropped the Benjamin.
95  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Whoa, Bushie supports Rand Paul now? on: May 07, 2015, 09:45:54 am
Does Bushie's streak of backing the Democratic nominee at the last minute extend to the primaries?  How did he vote in the 2004, 2008, and 2012 presidential primaries?


Not sure I can answer that...

The other day, I made that post on the "absolutist" position on you not talking about your personal life.  Nonetheless, I find it hard to believe that anyone would see your indicating how you voted in past elections counts as "talking about your personal life".  At least, it's no more talking about your personal life than you talking about how you're now endorsing Rand Paul is "talking about your personal life".


If you say it's okay.  I voted for Bush in the 2004 Primary, because I was a registered Republican and he was virtually unopposed.  I voted for Obama in the 2008 and 2012 Primaries because I was a registered Democrat.

Since this is talking about my political leanings and not my personal life, I'll chime in here.  I can see the Christie ship sinking fast, so I had to jump.  It was either Rand Paul or Scott Walker, and I think Paul fits my way of thinking better.

What does a most recent "Oklahoma Democrat" find about Rand that makes him the best fit for you, more so than Walker or Rubio or Bush, or for that matter, Hillary?  What for that matter is similar about Christie's and Paul's ideologies for that matter?

Rand Paul is a social moderate which is what I am.  He's not too conservative.  Hillary is too liberal, plus I think she's a fake.  I don't trust her at all.  She does not connect with ordinary America.  Still, I would vote for her over Jeb Bush who I think is an even bigger fake.  Jeb Bush hates America's children because he supports common core.  Rand Paul is not perfect, but I can get behind him a lot easier.

Pence update:

http://wane.com/2015/05/01/governor-pence-talks-highlights-of-2015-legislative-session/

Quote
As for whether or not Pence will run for president, he said his focus is on signing the bills from this session.

“After we complete that work, my family and I are going to take some time aside and determine the best place that we feel called to serve. I have spent the last two years preparing to run for re-election. Indiana always comes first, but we’ll make a final decision about our plans in the coming weeks and let Hoosiers know,” Pence said.


In short, Pence is not running.

You honestly just sound like that stuck-up kid everyone knew who would give other kids sh**t because their clothes were from generic affordable chain stores. It's just a haircut.

I'm pretty sure my local barber shop costs less than SuperCuts.

Anyway, horrible (normal, sane)

No, as you see.  In a local barbershop there is an understood relationship between the patron and the owner.  Since you've been going there for a long time/converse with the nice person, you often will "tip" the person.  I know this sounds just awful, I mean, why should this disgusting peon get your hard earned paper money?  But hear me out.  Often this is mutually beneficial.  The owner/barber makes a little extra in his day of work, and you "feel good" for helping out a friend.  So that's where the extra cost comes from.  I know Mr. memphis says he does "tip" at these places, but he is a Democrat and by definition overly generous and well-meaning.  Ask Bushie if he tips at the Sportz Clipz.

Unfortunately, I don't believe I can answer that.

Interpretation: My parents didn't give me money for a tip.  Hey don't judge!  The economy is so tough now days and I am above honest employment!

No, there is a forum rule in place that I cannot divulge personal information or talk about my personal life in anyway.  I don't feel like getting death points...
