Not a huge fan, to be honest, though I do like it how he brings out the worst in conservatives. What's funny though is how people act like he's the Limbaugh of the Left despite not having been relevant since 2005 or so.

Pretty sure Jobbik and Golden Dawn both sit on the right in their respective legislatures.

The Rock's but I would have just eaten the pancakes and brownies.
54  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: will the Roman Catholic Church 'accept LGBT' on/before August 15, 2067? on: April 07, 2015, 08:56:24 am
I doubt it. My denomination (PCA) will accept homosexual acts before the RCC does. Besides, why would they? The church outside the West is more conservative, and even in the West, liberals aren't exactly known for passing on the faith or tithing.

Not really--Latin America and the Philippines are for the most part more gay-tolerant than their non-Catholic neighbors. You're most certainly correct with regards to African Catholics, though.

As to the poll, I voted Option 2.

What are Latin America's non-Catholic neighbours? America and Guyana?

I assume he means the Anglophone Caribbean, which to be sure is far more homophobic than Latin America these days.

Soccer (for whatever reason - nationalism, I suspect) and U.S. collegiate sports can really bring it out of people, I'll tell you.

And Game 7 disappointments

And when a popular coach turns out to be a sicko who let his buddy use his job as an assistant coach emeritus to lure in vulnerable children and rape them for over a decade. Please note that they were not rioting over the enabling and shocking lack of welfare for the children, but because said coach was fired for of it.

I don't go to Penn State, I have no connection to the school, and I've never even lived in Pennsylvania, but that was one of the few times in my life I've been ashamed to be an American.

Every single item in the budget is a special interest to someone.

It seriously boggles my mind how apparently naive, incompetent and/or disinterested these people are.

At this point, whoever hired him for this new pharmacy job should themselves be canned immediately. If his record didn't raise enough red flags for them, then what the hell are they doing?

I would be shocked if it's actually what any of us would consider a "pharmacy job".
58  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which relative of a presidential candidate will cause the most trouble? on: April 03, 2015, 11:04:08 am
GWB, because if Jeb is nominated (which I expect he will be, though not without hiccups), he'll pretty much have to speak at the GOP convention, which will be preceded and followed by days of retrospective pieces on the Bush presidency. Meaning they'll have to acknowledge that he was president.

In all probability she will, unless it's a Republican Wave.

No Rickroll? Sad
63  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President Obama to (finally) return to Kenya this July on: March 31, 2015, 10:58:25 am
Obama should make a trollish remark about being glad to be back in his native land or something like that, just to make the birthers foam.

64  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which State Will Elect an Atheist Republican First? on: March 30, 2015, 02:32:16 pm
Heck had there ever been an atheist Democrat senator?

Rep. Stark was from California for ages

Stark wasn't a senator.

And to answer the OP, we're a long way off from electing an Atheist to statewide office. The first atheist senator or governor will most likely be a Democrat from Hawaii or Vermont, and that probably won't happen for another 10-15 years at the earliest. I don't think it'll be possible to have an openly Atheist Republican Senator or Governor until the 2050s or so.

You know, if Democratic PACs really cared about this issue, rather than fighting it tooth and nail on laws, they can use money and resources to help poor and disadvantaged people get state IDs.

If Republicans are really so concerned about voter fraud, why not issue a free photo ID to every citizen who wants one?

No, she won't lead in any polls, or even break out of low single digits, and she'll probably be out before Iowa.

Yes, of course. Let's not be silly.
70  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Is Ted Cruz constitutionally eligible to be President? on: March 26, 2015, 11:18:55 am
Yes, but of course the Birthers will invent some sort of contrivance by which Cruz is eligible but Obama isn't.
71  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: White Protestant Vote by State on: March 25, 2015, 03:34:31 pm
I wonder how the WASPs in NYC vote (who are what, 2% of the population?)

Protestants are about 10% of the population (6% mainline, 4% Evangelical). I'm guessing the mainlines are mostly white, with Evangelicals a bit of a mixed bag racially.

My guess is that white mainlines vote a lot more Republican than NYC as a whole, but still Democrat overall. Maybe 60% Dem instead of 80% plus for the city as a whole.

Only 10%? I would've thought it would be way higher than that. I know NYC has a lot of Catholics, Jews, Muslims, and non-believers, but I have a very hard time believing that only 10% are Protestant. Or is that just the percentage who are affiliated with a church?
72  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Opinion of Canada's Liberal Party on: March 25, 2015, 03:09:56 pm
Historically a freedom party, but pretty much a textbook example of why becoming the natural party of government is bad for both the party and the country in the long run.

The guy they interviewed is pretty clearly a moron, but it's obvious they twisted his words and took them out of context in a dishonest and reprehensible way.

Fairly common in the NJ suburbs of NYC, I would imagine.

In a seven-way split, he just might.
