As someone who (actually unintentionally--I'd rather not tell the story) had to talk their sister out of suicide...tweed has a point. I wish no ill on Clinton1996 but this right now seems more like teenage angst than anything else.

Even if it is, who is to say it's still not a substantial risk? As someone who has suffered from depression for many years, I know if things got bad and I asked for a lifeline from the folks here or anywhere else (and recently, they have been bad), I would hope just for someone to take it seriously enough to care.

Clinton, I know my advice may not mean much, but the first thing to do is take some time and reflect on this situation you find yourself in. Please don't do anything drastic until you have taken some time to get the angst out of your system. Take a day... Take a week... Most important thing right now should be just to look within yourself and see whether or not this is a problem that is permanent or temporary. Because let's be clear, dying is a permanent solution to your problem, and if it's a temporary problem, then why take the most drastic move? I promise you, you're not better off dead, because there are people who care about you out there. Take your time and really think about it.

I wish you the best.

I don't like Hillary and I plan on voting third party if she is the nominee, but that said, I would sooner see her President than Ted friggin Cruz...

I'm guessing with Lesnar re-signing, they'll get what they want for next year's show. Brock VS Rock to break their own (worked number, I might add), attendance record.

They only got 78,000 in the Pontiac Silverdome for Wrestlemania III, but they wanted to beat the Pope who drew 88,000, so they came up with a number that wasn't even physically possible, which was 93,173... Incidentally, on a plaque they put up at the Silverdome with all their big attendence events, they actually gave the Pope a worked number (93,500) so that he wouldn't appear below Wrestlemania. Which I think is very amusing.

In Dallas, no matter what, they're going to announce 100,000 and they're very likely going to do more than they did at Summerslam 1992 at Wembly Stadium, which is their actual attendance record at about 80,000.

But no matter what, if it's even close to that, they're gonna announce 100,000 people. So, they want that big money match. Brock VS Rock would do it and it's one they want to do...

I think they have to know that Reigns is another Kevin Nash in 1994... The guy isn't getting over and isn't going to draw as champion. They're pretty desperate right now, really...

Bryan/Boies, though I should note that Watson was a massive racist and anti-semite IRL.

Oddly enough at this time though, he was one of the leading proponents of poor black and white cooperation. He thought at the time that it was more important for the poor to be united against the rich than for the whites to be united against minorities... He did change those views later though.

I think he changed his views around about the time the Populists collapsed as a political force. He really went firebrand on it during the Mary Phagan murder trial where he called for the lynching of Leo Frank.

If the Populists are not collapsing as a political force, it's possible Watson (incidentally, Watson is my last name, so I always feel weird typing it out when referring to someone else) never changes his views.

So it's almost time for Wrestlemania. I can't say I'm super-excited for it...

I'm actually going to be there and I have to agree. Supposedly it's possible for Brock to keep the belt though, which I don't necessarily mind.

I don't see that happening. I feel like WWE is just leaking bogus information to try and keep the smarks interested. Reigns is going to win and he may very well end up getting booed out of the arena afterward.

I hope that's exactly what happens. I have zero interest in it this year and as someone who's watched it since age 2, that's pretty bad.

Nixon had a failing economy in the 1960's, if I'm correct there was a recession and Kennedy was able to run on the basis of getting the economy started.

Interesting comparison between Bush and Kennedy. Both sons of relatively unpopular rich man, yet both Bush and Kennedy came across as charismatic and down to earth

Yes, the economy in 1958-1961 was pretty bad. You also had the civil rights movement and the idea (which even before Watergate was strong) that Nixon was corrupt.

Are you positive about that?  From the reading I've done, Nixon actually gained a very good reputation as VP.  Many saw him as more "liberal" (I strongly object to the idea that any past viewpoint that is now deemed "correct" is considered "liberal" for its time, as that line of thinking seems nothing more than a clever ploy to suggest that liberal ideas are always right, and when they're unpopular, it's just because people aren't enlightened enough for them, but I digress) on civil rights issues than Eisenhower, and he played a pretty admirable role in several Senate debates.

I wouldn't be surprised if you're right, though ... I mean he obviously DID end up being corrupt, haha.

Yes, he is... Remember Checkers?

You guys will change your tune in a couple years when you're a bit older.
I'm 41 and never drink the stuff.  There are ways to get caffeine that don't taste like ass and make me have to poop.  Tea (green) and Mt Dew do the trick for me.

See the problem here?
Of course.  A lot of people lack the awesomeness to enjoy Mt Dew Smiley

I'm 27 and don't drink coffee either. I do however drink a lot of pop. That's how I get caffeine.

13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Huey Long on: March 16, 2015, 06:16:23 pm
He could be both. Huey was a very smart man and he did legitimately want to make lives for the poorest in Louisiana better. He paved roads and funded education. He greatly improved Louisiana's infrastructure.

But he was also a standoffish, greedy megalomaniac who found it virtually impossible to work with others on an equal basis. His "dee-duct" box contained millions of dollars of stolen money.

His opponents were horrible people and he certainly matched them tit for tat at times.

I read his posts in my head in Kevin Spacey's voice. It usually seems accurate as he can be both very eloquent and at times funny.

When I was a kid, I did... But as I've grown older, I wouldn't want the job. Politics is something to follow and debate among friends... It's not something I'd want to do as a career.
