26  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Majority of Americans support assault weapons ban.... on: June 15, 2016, 06:27:12 pm
No. Yes. Yes. And the answers to those three questions will remain the same for the foreseeable future.

So what's it gonna take for change to occur? I have no clue.

Neither do I. Broad campaign finance reform or the people starting an initiative are really the only two ways I see anything getting done, but the likeliness of either of those happening is next to none.
27  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should the monitoring of mosques be part of U.S. security activities? on: June 15, 2016, 06:21:12 pm
If there's probable cause and a warrant, sure--just like there should be anywhere.  But no, warrantless mass surveillance of mosques just because they're mosques would be a significantly unconstitutional overreach.

Johnson (normal)

He'll get Republicans to support this by turning it into an anti-terrorism/anti-Muslim policy that will rile up his staunchest supporters, and most of the rest of the GOP will follow his lead. He'll appease the NRA by throwing in a provision to ensure people are guaranteed due process.

The policy is admirable, but this will just turn into another way to paint Muslims as dangerous against American interests.

No. Yes. Yes. And the answers to those three questions will remain the same for the foreseeable future.

I saw the topic title, and I was going to make a Dick Morris joke...and then I read the post and realized it was actually about Dick Morris Sad
32  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: CLINTON EVISCERATES TRUMP on: June 03, 2016, 02:49:54 am
The speech might have been the iceberg that sunk the Trumptanic.  It exposed his candidacy for the ridiculous, sad joke that it is.

You underestimate the power of angry, white voters.

No, but I hope he does.

35  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Primary Election Polls / Re: CA: PPIC: Clinton +2 on: May 27, 2016, 10:56:45 am
Why doesn't anyone ever show how accurate or inaccurate this PPIC has been in past elections?

538's pollster rating is A-, but that's with only 10 polls analyzed, and their rating of SUSA is A.
36  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty is sought for Charleston killer on: May 26, 2016, 08:53:23 pm
I believe that some crimes do warrant the death penalty, like this one. I can't wait for that despicable monster to burn in hell.

The problem with that is that it's subjective. What crimes warrant the death penalty, and what burden of proof does the prosecutor need to show in order to make a defendant eligible for the death penalty?
37  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: This is the scariest story I've read all year on: May 26, 2016, 08:51:04 pm
It was only a matter of time. Nature will always have a way to compensate for human advances. It's the same general reason why I don't think we'll ever find a cure for cancer.
38  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Texas GOP platform says that most Texans are gay on: May 24, 2016, 08:49:27 am
Although poorly worded, it actually doesn't say that. The phrase "shared by the majority of Texans" refers back to "fundamental unchanging truths", not "a chosen behavior". That being said, the "has" in that sentence should be "have", and "are" should precede the words "recognized" and "shared". But there is no way, using standard grammar to interpret the phrase as referring back to "a chosen behavior".

Whoever wrote the article isn't that well-versed in grammar rules apparently.
39  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: Rasmussen national: Trump +5 on: May 19, 2016, 11:43:38 am
Wow. Just wow. If Trump wins this election, will he have been the most underestimated candidate in history?

Remind me, were you one of the posters in may of 2012 who got all excited about Romney winning when he started leading Obama?

The party is divided, Hillary will have her edge back in June.

I'm not so sure. My theory is that there is a significant chunk of the electorate who will vote for Trump but won't admit it to pollsters, and these polls obviously don't account for those people.
40  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump unveils list of potential Supreme Court justices on: May 18, 2016, 10:22:02 pm
The people saying Trump made this list by looking up Bush appointees on Wikipedia are giving him too much credit.

I guarantee somebody like Jeff Sessions wrote the list, handed it to Trump and said "Here use this."

Some research had to go into this... Joan Larsen is a pretty random pick.
41  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump unveils list of potential Supreme Court justices on: May 18, 2016, 01:54:25 pm
Justice Larsen is an interesting one... she was just recently appointed to the Michigan Supreme Court by Snyder. She's up for her confirmation election this November.

EDIT: Although, she did clerk for Scalia.
42  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Gary Johnson and Jill Stein be invited to the debates? on: May 16, 2016, 11:01:28 pm
You should be invited if you are polling at least 10% in an average of 5 recent polls.

Polling firms should be required to include all candidates who are on the ballot in all 50 states.

Required by who?
43  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would an ISIL-related terrorist attack affect the race? on: May 16, 2016, 10:56:31 pm
It'd result in an astounding Trump victory (Cf. V for Vendetta)
44  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) gets told by own state party to stop whining. on: May 16, 2016, 10:50:47 pm
Well, of course a voice vote is going to be lopsided... people are always going to be unwilling to stand up for what's right when what's right is unpopular. But good for those who voted against the measure.
45  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Should Gary Johnson and Jill Stein be invited to the debates? on: May 16, 2016, 10:47:52 pm
Johnson only, because eventually he'll be the Trump alternative. However, if he doesn't reach a decent threshold, I wouldn't find it absurd that he's excluded. But there's no reason to include Stein... I'd be surprised if she exceeds 4% in a single state.
46  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: The Green party is debating adding an Anti-Capitalist Amendment to their party on: May 10, 2016, 09:29:35 pm
This is why environmentalists in America can't really get anything truly meaningful done. There's too much unwillingness to compromise or take a moderate approach to issues.
47  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump's general election campaign strategy...big rallies on: May 10, 2016, 09:27:14 pm
Which idiot is running his campaign?

...Well, I guess the answer must be Donald Trump.

He's outperformed pretty much every early prediction. So many people think Clinton will slaughter him, but my fear is that he's going to end up winning. I honestly think he'll do a lot better than anybody expects as of now.
48  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rand Paul to endorse Trump? on: May 10, 2016, 10:52:48 am
You guys forget that Rand promised to endorse the GOP nominee, this is good character.

No, it was a stupid promise. Good character isn't a good thing if it forces you to make a bad choice.
49  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rand Paul to endorse Trump? on: May 09, 2016, 05:51:18 pm
Absolutely disgraceful. Crap like this underscores the the idea that the entire party itself is broken and close to being unsalvageable.
