What do you think Scalia would have said had he been alive?

He would've been a concurrence who likely would've disapproved of the majority implying that it may require non-voters to be counted at some point in the future.

The Court reached the correct result. It's not surprising this was unanimous.

I don't think level of religion and patriotism is necessarily a factor in what makes a model citizen.

Great news. More states should follow this example.

I also won't vote for Cruz if he somehow wins.

I've noticed that 538 isn't covering these contests. Why no love for the Pacific states, Nate? Sad
538 dislikes Sanders. They think the Dem contest is already over and show more interest in the GOP race because Trump.

lol. They don't "dislike Sanders", they just accept the reality that the race is over.

Not necessarily, even by their math. Right now, he's at 89% of his delegate goal according to 538. After today, he'll likely be at 91-92%, unless something surprising happens in Hawaii.  Granted, he still has the Superdelegate problem, but that could change.

Using a percentage really downplays the extent he is in the hole. According to 538, after tonight he "should" be down about 50 delegates if he was on track. Instead, he'll be down by 230+.

That is true. Using a percentage can be deceiving if you're not keeping in mind the ever-decreasing number of delegates left.  But the fact remains that he's making up some ground tonight. It likely won't be enough, but Clinton certainly isn't at a >99% chance of winning at this point.

I had that thought too. Perhaps because of March Madness?

He's still going to be way down after tonight, but Bernie did a lot better in Washington than he had to in the abstract, which will end up helping him make up for lost ground. It's still a long shot for him, but this margin in Washington is really what will end up keeping him alive through the weekend.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Poll: How embarrassing is Trump/Rep. conduct to you ? on: March 26, 2016, 05:37:38 pm
Very embarrassing, to the point that I can't defend my party anymore.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Hypocritical politicians on: March 22, 2016, 11:17:16 pm
Schumer and Reid and Pelosi did the same thing July 27, 2007.

What was in this regards to? Just Schumer talking about not confirming any more Bush SCOTUS nominees? As I recall, there were no justices to nominate in 2007 anyway.

In hindsight, that was a really stupid thing for him to do.  Why publicize your hypothetical obstructionism?  The costs of doing so far outweigh any potential benefit.

Map E, for the sake of consistency. We're all used to the colors, and I see no reason to change them now.

No. dead0man is one of our more rational and sane posters, so it makes sense he's anti-Trump.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If Democrats win WH, Senate, & House... should/will Schumer nix the filibuster? on: March 20, 2016, 04:22:56 pm
Should they? Yes. As I've said for years, we should return the Senate to requiring an actual talking filibuster to stop things. Will they? Probably not.

Not on legislation, but on judicial vacancies.

I would argue for everything.

18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SCOTUS nominee expected as early as this morning EDIT: looks like it's Garland on: March 20, 2016, 03:11:08 pm
This guy is against the rights of people to keep and bare arms as witnessed by Judge Garland wanting to reconsider the ruling D.C. vs Heller


They shouldnt even give him a chance.  Hes a trojan horse.

How does voting to merely rehear the case amount to opposing a constitutional right that you don't even know how to spell?

I must say this is the weirdest one of them all. What context could this possibly be used in?

I used to use it sarcastically as a mod, but yeah, for general forum-esque things, it is a weird smiley.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is there any doubt in your mind Trump will be the nominee? on: March 17, 2016, 08:42:28 pm
There is some doubt, but I'd give Trump a 99+% chance of winning... 90% that he secures it pre-convention.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SCOTUS nominee expected as early as this morning EDIT: looks like it's Garland on: March 17, 2016, 08:37:03 pm

One Senator posing a hypothetical that never came to fruition.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SCOTUS nominee expected as early as this morning EDIT: looks like it's Garland on: March 17, 2016, 06:01:40 pm
No . This guy has a horrible 2nd admin record.   They shouldn't entertain the ideal of even meeting with this left wing loon.

He voted to rehear a case without taking a position on its merits.

Yeah, as I indicated above, that is the worst possible reason to oppose him.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SCOTUS nominee expected as early as this morning EDIT: looks like it's Garland on: March 16, 2016, 08:17:39 pm
Perhaps the most annoying thing to happen substance-wise in opposition to Garland is the assumption by many Republicans that because he voted in favor of rehearing on Parker v. District of Columbia he MUST be anti-gun.
