Am I the only person alarmed that this man has cut people's skulls open and operated on their brains???

To be fair, doctors and surgeons are very smart, but most of them know about as much about politics and government as the typical Atlas Forum poster knows about Brain Surgery.
52  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why are republicans concerned about a nuclear Iran? on: March 04, 2015, 02:18:20 pm
Because most of them think that if Iran gets the bomb, they'll nuke Tel Aviv the very next day. No, really.
53  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Redistricting at the Supreme Court on: March 03, 2015, 01:50:50 pm
Yeah, this is incredibly stupid of the Republicans.  Not only would the Democrats benefit more from redistricting being toppled, but the argument they're taking to the court could also lead to all of the Republican's precious Voter ID laws being ruled unconstitutional.


Nah, in these types of cases the Roberts Court generally does what's best for the GOP.

One more reason to vote for him Tongue However, he will have a difficult time winning his home state. Somehow, we don't see a home state effect anymore these days (Gore losing TN in 2000, Kerry underperforming Gore in MA in 2004, Romney getting destroyed in MA in 2012 like any other Republican,...). Btw: If Walker wins WI, I think he will win the election.

Walker has never had to face his state's presidential year electorate, which is vastly different from the midterm one which elected him twice.

So... he decided he isn't conservative enough already? Great rationale there, Scotty, change your mind so that you're completely against Obama. I bet no Republican has ever thought of that strategy before.

In a Republican primary, that's actually a pretty smart strategy. There's a good chance it'll come back to bite him in the general.
56  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Walker's dullness may prove an asset, no? on: March 01, 2015, 02:41:47 pm
Walker is anything but dull. And not in a good way.
57  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bush's LGBT-friendly inner circle on: February 27, 2015, 01:15:48 pm
Bush won't give Hillary a pass on "Benghazi" as Romney did with Obama, something stinks there....If had what occurred that did occur if McCain or Romney had been in the White House...The outlets at NBC, ABC, CNN, CBS,  the Washington Post, New York Times etc., & DNC...but hey what am I talking about? The fact is Obama as usual wimped out and it is unlikely that McCain or Romney would have allowed things to pear shaped in the first place. So Hillary you can run, but you can't hide!

I agree. Bush should make Benghazi the centerpiece of his campaign.

59  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Have there ever been Senators that became Representatives? on: February 26, 2015, 01:30:28 pm
Mike DeWine is currently Ohio's Attorney General. Not the same thing, I know, but still a step down.

All names of major streets in Roswell should be extraterrestrial-themed, because let's face it, that's pretty much the town's one claim to fame.

45%
62  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: BOOM! Trump seriously preparing, starts hiring staffers on: February 25, 2015, 04:42:28 pm
Hahaha! Amazing news!

He has 0% chance of winning the nomination, but jeez. If he did, we could have another 1984 on our hands.
He won't win, but he might be Flavor of the Month.
63  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Why is Jack Conway a Democrat? on: February 23, 2015, 11:30:27 pm
Pro-ACA, didn't defend Kentucky's ban on SSM, wants to rethink war on drugs.

Moderate on fiscal issues, but certainly to the left of Republicans.

So he's in the Wyden/Feingold camp of libertarian Democrats

Err...Feingold and Wyden aren't Libertarians.

66  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What colors should the 2016 candidates be on the forum maps? on: February 20, 2015, 11:40:18 pm
Democrats:
Clinton: Blue because she's secretly a Republican
Webb: Green because he's only in it for the money
Sanders: Red - the color of communism
O'Malley: Yellow because he has piss-poor chances of winning

Republicans:
Walker: Yellow because cheese (Wisconsin)
Bush: Blue - how he'll be feeling once the primaries start
Christie: Red because he's secretly a Democrat
Paul: Orange because there's no rhyme or reason with him
Santorum: Brown for obvious reasons
Cruz: Green because he'll make people sick when he starts talking
Rubio: Teal because its similiar to Blue but not as popular
Graham: Pink

Congratulations, you win the thread!
67  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: RELIGIOUS FREEDOM! Doctor refuses to care for lesbian couple's 6-day-old baby on: February 19, 2015, 01:47:56 pm
I know this is going to sound very libertarian of me, but it's not as if this doctor refused to provide emergency care.  She even made arrangements so that the baby would still be seen by a doctor at the appointed time.  The idea that people who choose to provide services should have no ability to decide who to serve is a rather illiberal one. It was a bigoted and stupid decision on her part, but unless it rises to the point of preventing people from having any access to a needed service, I don't think government should be interfering in this particular form of idiocy.

Yeah, I agree. She's clearly an awful person, but at least she showed the basic human decency to make sure the baby was cared for by someone who wasn't a bigot. I don't think it should be actionable.

What if another doctor hadn't been available. Her religious "beliefs" still would have dictated that she not treat the baby.

do you guys think crazy religious people in like south america or africa are similarly ethnocentric* with their doomsday predictions?

*I don't know if ethnocentric is the right word but hopefully y'all get what I mean
You're forgetting that Jesus Was A White Man, so, of course, he's going to be more interested in the affairs of White People.
Yeah, I was wondering why the Taiping Rebellion (20 million dead) and the Great Leap Forward (30-40 million dead) didn't merit the status of "trumpets".

Remember that the people who believe this crap don't believe all people who identify as Christian will be raptured. It'll be a vast minority even in the west. Also the war will involve some sort of totalitarian government over the entire world...do yeah Alexis Tspiras is going to rule the world soon.

Wait, Tspiras is the Anti-Christ now? A few pages back it was Putin. And wasn't it Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi a few months ago?
70  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: UMass Amherst bans Iranian nationals from taking certain science subjects on: February 19, 2015, 10:55:56 am
How many Iranians even go to school in the US? I'd imagine it can't be very easy for then to get a visa and all for one. Is this something that'd actually common?

Not a huge number, but more than you'd think - around 10,000: http://www.statista.com/statistics/233880/international-students-in-the-us-by-country-of-origin/.
71  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Challenge: Describe a Jill Stein voter in Winston County Alabama on: February 19, 2015, 12:06:32 am
There are granola types in every state, even Alabama. No doubt some of them voted for Stein.

He is to whoever it matters to him.
This is the correct answer. It's impossible to answer with a simple "yes" or "no".

75  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: UT-Sen: Huntsman might jump in on: February 18, 2015, 09:34:04 am
I'd enjoy seeing a Huntsman vs. Anderson race although that'd never happen.

Rocky Anderson? Yeah that would be hilarious, though Rocky would get pummeled; he failed badly against the very moody Merill Cook, after all.

I wonder if Anderson would even crack 20% in such a scenario. Huntsman's main threat would come from a right-wing independent or 3rd party.
