Man who needs democratic elections!

Wulfric is one of those people who, as long as he's appeased by his need for "moderation", he would have Hitler or Stalin as a leader.

Not Funny. (And obviously Not True.)

Furthermore, anyone who doesn't like Baker is nothing but a democratic hack who would literally support a hamster for governor as long as it has a D next to its name.

He's been governor for ... what, four months?

My mom probably would have beat down Bill Clinton for doing what he did if she was married to him, too.

Can a Republican who promises a crackdown on weed win Colorado? Interesting take on states' rights, there.

Isn't his what we've been hearing recently from progressives: someone running a small business can't decline to be a part of a religious ceremony?
This has nothing to do with a business picking and choosing who they serve from the general public.

Never mind the fact that gay marriages aren't religious ceremonies.
7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Oklahoma approves exciting new method of killing inmates on: April 18, 2015, 08:08:36 pm
Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin has just signed a bill to approve nitrogen-induced hypoxia as a method of carrying out the death penalty. Supporters say it's painless and humane, though it's never actually been used or tested.

Oklahoma's lethal injection method is currently on hold while the U.S. Supreme Court considers the issue of its constitutionality.

I'm feeling Shirin is in a really good spot atm? Like the little clip included of her stratergising and suggesting that Carolyn is a huge threat works to her advantage.

The only problem is that Shirin seems to be disliked by a majority of the tribe to the point where she won't get their jury votes.

My middle class neighbor across the street is on Medicare, the moocher.

The description of the person AD feels sympathetic to is real a magic bullet of a fool. A pool of ambitious small business owners that can somehow turn a hell of a profit but can't seem to balance a checkbook.

Ironically enough, I'm a small business owner. Which is why I had to buy my own insurance off an exchange in the first place.

The middle class just got hammered with a 1% of AGI or $95 per month (whichever is higher) surtax for non-coverage. Rather than pay the tax, they removed dependents from their tax return. Those dependency exemptions were granted according to the ability to pay concept. Other taxpayers, who aren't covered by their employers, thus, don't receive the same tax benefits for healthcare, were forced to eat the higher tax bill.

I, a middle class tax payer, got walloped terribly by Obamacare this year.

I do not have health care through an employer so I was forced to buy a plan off a state-run exchange. I was forced to take a significant tax break as a subsidy to cover the cost of my plan. Then, to make matters worse, I was forced to deduct the amount of money I spent on health insurance from my income.

What a terrible world I find myself living in. I now have quality health insurance for just over $100 per month, which is -- sadly -- less than I was paying when I had an employer cover part of the bill for me. What a terrible deal Obamacare is! Repeal it, quick -- I can't stand finally having access to an affordable health care plan Sad

I can only hope that BRTD was watching.

This is like a black hole, I've spend the last 2 hours reading this. It's fine line between being extremely funny, and extremely depressing.

What's the history with Bushie?

There are 21 other Update threads where you can read the entire history.

Don't forget about the hobo shed orgy.

I don't have that much free time!

You'll make time for it. How else are you going to learn about his adopted kids from Kenya, the time he tried selling us all insurance and got de-modded, side jacking, the train room, his love affair with Allison, the time Update saved him from prison, and -- of course -- the time he lost a whole ton of weight but it all turned out to just be a lie.

Let's not forget the horrific April fools joke he crushed his mama with and the fact they had a good laugh at papa's diabetes diagnosis. 

Hey mom! I don't have a job anymore!

HAHAHA APRIL FOOLS

No seriously though I quit to work at a call center
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CA: Gov. Brown orders mandatory water restrictions (25% reduction statewide) on: April 12, 2015, 09:08:45 pm
Oh and fracking wasting so much water, 70 million gallons of it! It's not like there are solar plants that consume several times more water than the entire fracking industry.

The plant should've been dry cooled to save water, sure. But what do you suggest, that California stop generating electricity?

PS: The average 500MW coal plant uses 12 million gallons of water per hour.

It's so hard to know where this show is going because the editing is all over the place this season. Like last episode I was convinced there was an all girls alliance but then no Sierra flips again. And, like Shirin appears to be on the bottom but she takes up about half the confessionals suggesting that she is an important player. Then there's Tyler and Carolyn who are so ing boring yet they really have all the power but get barely any screen time.

Jeff claimed this is a great season but I just don't see it yet because the people doing are really unlikeable   ... I mean Dan and Rodney are hardcore misogynists, Mike is just annoying, Tyler/Carolyn are really boring and like is Will even on this show? I'm hoping something changes, regardless I just want Shirin to win - she is awesome and one of the most likeable players on the show.

Unlikable people are a big part of Survivor. I think Rodney is a huge tool, but he's crazy entertaining to watch because he's so aggressively unpredictable.

I think they're doing a terrific job with editing, and they're getting way better with misdirects. All the signs pointed to Dan being in trouble last episode except for one -- the girls needed 6 votes and they clearly only had 5. Everyone is too pre-occupied with Joe to make any kind of move except to make him weaker where possible.

(FWIW, I think Mike needs to figure out -- and quick -- that his best chance for staying in the game long-term is to keep Joe around as long as possible.)

Shirin is in an interesting place. She's playing a really good weak game. Aside from her personality, there's really no reason for people to get rid of her when more significant minority targets remain in the game (Joe, Jenn). Her being on a different side as the rest of the White Collars actually does them all a favor at this point in the game.

Shirin really needs to find a way to make up with Carolyn, though. I know that she doesn't want her to eat pizza or have cool adventures, but joining back up with the 2 WCs after the NCs get voted out is probably her best move.

You realize bizzaro Atlas is the underworld and we just opened up a portal to them and now we will be invaded.  We solved the proverbial rubix cube.  Pinhead has arrived.

I find a comparison to Fringe to be more apt. Now that Bushie has selfishly opened a portal to "over there," both our worlds are destined to collapse. Our only hope is that the "over there" version of Bushie turns out to be an incredibly well-adjusted, successful, science-minded savior who can save us all.
