I doubt the Canadian parties would just disappear. They could continue as regional parties, but I assume the NDP & Liberals would caucus with the Democrats in Congress.
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why does Trump do better with Republicans that live in less white areas? on: March 19, 2016, 04:23:14 pm
Other than 'they're racist' or whatever. In almost every state and area imaginable, where there's a high black or Hispanic population, there is a higher than average Trump vote in the Republican primary. We know Republican primaries are >90% white most of the time, so these are not necessarily black or Hispanic voters who have 'a great relationship' with Trump. Is it because these areas fit the Trump demographic - disaffected, poorer, blue collar, less education, etc? Or is there something else behind it?

Why bother asking if you already know the answer?

I enjoy the perks of being an attractive, young, single blonde woman.

I am 0/19 on getting a ticket when pulled over.
I haven't paid a bar tab since the Bush administration.
I have never had to call a cab or pay for a ride.
I have never had to lift heavy furniture or move out on my own.

There are probably more benefits that I don't even realize are benefits because I have never gone without them, why would I want to give it all up to watch television with some goober every night?


You are a woman? Welcome to the forum! I hope you can ignore the extreme creepiness and crass sexism of some of our specimens, and focus on the few good things about it (maps, mostly).

Thank you! I used to be a model of sorts, so I have an immunity to extreme creepiness and crass sexism.

You're 26 and haven't paid for a drink since the Bush Administration?  Were you part of a high school service club that paid bar tabs for chronic alcoholics?

Don't crush Tony's dreams... Sad

A friend of mine who I bum cigs from outside the porch of the liberal arts building did an independent study class of an island off the Virginia coast that has remained virtually untouched by us Yanks since the revolution. Apparently their accent is one of the closest things alive to how English sounded back in "the day".

That's Tangier, Virginia.

82% Romney, 80% Gillespie, 90% Cuccinelli...

Yikes!

-8% job performance rating? Considering Elway said Cantwell was -10% in 2011, and has laughably high numbers of undecideds in all of his polls, I can't say I'm worried.

A moderator mercilessly trolled her and she gave him exactly what he wanted.

Congratulations, Team Moderator. Couldn't have gone more smoothly.

I think the Kurds should be allowed to pursue independence.

What happened to the Greeks and Armenians is unfortunate, but almost a century has passed since then. Time to move on.

^zing? Are you mad because I asked why you're a mod and opebo was banned? You've had a weird hate thing going on lately. That must be it.

Honey, you really don't bother me at all. It is always a pleasure to "see" you surface every once in awhile from your new digs to share your little insights about us.

Ah, I see. Your frequent sniping of me suggests otherwise, but I'll go ahead and take your word for it.

Perhaps it was unreasonable of me to expect any of you to defend the indefensible.

"But remember that this is not some long distance cyberspace enmity with a guy in Australia or Montana, you are well within my reach shovel-face. So be a good little boy and piss off from both forums, otherwise this is about to become personal and switch to RL."


They're called personal messages for a reason. 

If a trend gets started where posters start to clutter up this board with PMs from other posters, then you'll have only yourself to blame.


Oh, chill. This wasn't even a message sent on here. But yeah, if you wanna be on your high horse in a public forum and constantly harass people in personal messages then maybe it'll bite you in the ass eventually.

I think you know better Angus. If you wanna support the crazy, do so directly, not by interpreting rules in a weird way.

Yes, I do know better than many.  I know better than to act like an outraged schoolgirl and post private messages publicly.  When I call someone out, I do it in full view of the forum.  Not only have I never harassed anyone in a personal message, but I also have never posted the contents of a personal message on this forum.  And yes, I think that makes my horse a tall one.  Call my interpretation weird if you want, but if it's weird not to be a bully, then I'm weird.  It is indeed very fortunate for all of us to have on this forum such an expert in psychology who is confident enough to decide who is crazy and who is weird. 



No, really. Politicus has sent me insane messages for ages and I've said nothing. She eventually got so upset she issued threats over disagreements. If you want to take the side of the person so easily offended she would always block, ignore or issue threats against anyone who disagreed with them, be my guest. But I think that you don't actually want to. Tongue

I know you have been a moderator for a very long time, and I know that it's probably a thankless task.  Still, I was a astonished that you'd post a personal message.  I would not do that.  Also, if in your position as moderator you feel that you need to use your mod superpowers, then it seems unseemly to broadcast it here.  I don't support bannings and suspensions of or editing of posts by any one other than the original poster, but if you have to have such recrimination, or if you genuinely feel harassed and feel that discussion is warranted, then such discussions ought to stay in the moderator cave. 

Also, if every drunken diatribe merited an opinion thread, I'd have racked up at least a thousand of them by now.  I disagree with politicus about half the time, but she is well informed and I admire her for her courage for speaking unpopular opinions.  That she lets you get the better of her is a weakness on her part, but a forgivable one, because you can be very trying at times.  Admittedly, the PM is a little creepy.  If I want to call you a jerk I do it out here in the open.  Still, I don't think I"m going to convince you that you're over-reacting, so I'm not going to argue with you any more.

Good day.


That's the real discussion we should be having. Why is it that moderators go out of their way to relentlessly troll, provoke, and purposely upset posters for the sheer joy of it all? Anyone else doing this would be moderated.

 Politicus has a lot to understand about Atlas. Moderators can provoke and troll you all they want. It's a privilege they've granted themselves. And once you slip up, they have their excuse to ban you, even if they're the ones who started it. It's all part of the lame internet power trip that must be the highlight of an otherwise disappointing life.

You lose, politicus. Too bad, I was cheering for you. Hope you stick around on AAD.

Your inclusion of the President suggests you don't know what "Pop culture" means... But the answer is that you're getting old.

Or maybe people are starting to dislike Antonio because he just insults people who disagree with him (I've never seen him actually debate anything), sends deranged & threatening messages to people for no good reason (see my signature), and is just an asshole in general?

No. It's all AAD's fault.

The only wrong thing Tony did was wasting his time by PMing you.

It was an awful and unnecessary thing to do, Kalwejt. Glad we're in agreement.

Keep going, this is hilarious.

Yes, your PM attacks are hilarious. That is why I put it in my signature.
