The Department of the Army has denied the final easement required for the $3.8 billion project to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota, it announced Sunday. Instead, it will conduct an Environmental Impact Statement to examine the impacts and explore alternative routes, it said.

“Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of new information with Standing Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, it’s clear that there’s more work to do,” Jo-Ellen Darcy, the Army’s assistant secretary for civil works, said in a statement. “The best way to complete that work responsibly and expeditiously is to explore alternative routes for the pipeline crossing.”

No, right wingers probably get off on living around liberals and scowling and bitching at them. After all, they spend their time watching TYT and every other liberal outlet even though it isn't meant for them. They like feeling pissed off.

Literally the worst city in America.

Any city a fascist hates is OK by me.

Ann Coulter has been advocating for this for years, and I am not sure she's joking.  Honestly I would probably vote to repeal it.  Think about it pragmatically.  If the country would be better off with conservative values, and women (especially young single women) vote for the opposite, then it would be logical to repeal their right to vote.  I would let them run for office, so that Michele Bachmann and others could serve.

This would be a fun poll if the choices were not phrased in such a sarcastic way.  None of the 3 choices appeal to me because of the snarky added reasoning on them.
Actually I am not a Trump supporter, I am a conservative who does not believe Trump can win the nomination.  But I would happily vote for him over Clinton or Sanders, hypothetically.
I did not support Duke when he ran in 1992, but I thought a lot of what he said made sense.  And if he were running today I would like him more than I like Clinton or Sanders, that's for sure.  Duke was once in the KKK, but so were some of your guys so don't throw that in our face.  Duke was nowhere near the goofball that Sanders is!

So, no health care for anyone!
Health care for everyone that wants it and can pay for it.  No coverage for pre-existing conditions, that's not how insurance works.  No single payer public option.  You want it, go out and buy it in the free market.
If a person is is in the military, or is a disabled veteran, then of course full coverage.

Yeah, to hell with the poor!  If they get sick and die, why should I care?
There will always be some form of health care for the poor.  Free clinics, emergency rooms and whatnot.  Of course, the rich will have more and better options.  Such is life.
By the way, forcing companies to cover pre-existing conditions is like trying to get a life insurance policy for a person who died yesterday.

Drink bleach.

Or, alternatively, get cancer.  I hope your insurance fails in the event.

Why bother responding to this cretin, who said he would "probably" vote to repeal the 19th Amendment if it came up for a vote?

yes.  I am assuming you mean white voters with minimal education.  the new political landscape:

educated whites + minorities vs. uneducated whites. 

There are more of the former but the latter is more geographically dispersed so they have the current advantage.

LOL, it's cute how delusional you guys are, as educated Whites vote Republican, too.

And yet you guys still only won by 3 states, each with 1% or less

Twitter only says no because they're failing and they want attention.

Do you support a national Muslim registry?

Says the guy who supported open borders in 2013. He's just repeating what his Paleocon base wants to hear. Like how he says he's against intervention but wanted to send ground troops to Libya in 2011.

There's no progressive insurgency though, so why not? Sanders endorsed Schumer for Senate leadership, what's more 3rd way than that?

Indeed it is.

This could very well be the beginning of a new Republican fascist alignment and resurgence.

It will depend on how the first Trump goes.

If he delivers on jobs, this will be very positive for the Republican future.

FTFY

Here I am, trying to be nice, but what does a red avatar do, throw around insults.

But if you want me to take the gloves off, I am capable of that too.

All you've done is insult people for the last month. You have no concept of "nice".

Being anti-Israel isn't anti-Semitic. Israel is a country, not a religion or an ethnicity.

Assuming he polled well enough to qualify for the debates, would he have done better or worse than Perot's 19%?
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Arizona and Georgia on: December 02, 2016, 02:35:10 am
It would be inexcusable to write off MI/PA/WI, all of which were within 1.5% and all of which are still perfectly winnable for Democrats in 2020 as long as the Democratic nominee campaigns there and takes those states seriously. As for AZ/GA, put together they can definitely be a replacement for IA/OH, which for the moment seem to be slipping away from Democrats (though these things can sometimes reverse themselves) -- 2020 seems to be a little too early for GA, which'll still be a leans-R state at that point, but AZ will definitely be a swing state and it would be inexcusable for Democrats not to invest something in that state.

The 2018 Senate race in AZ is going to be very telling as well. I'd imagine Kyrsten Sinema is licking her lips to run against a divisive Republican incumbent in a Trump midterm. If she can't make it (or if she decides not to run), that would be a very negative sign for Democrats.

No, if Trump continues with what he did with Carrier the Midwest will be solidly GOP in 2020 because muh jobs.

Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Why are you acting like this is an unreasonable question? 48% of Trump supporters believe the press should not be allowed to say whatever they want. He just suggested stripping citizenship for flag desecration. We are very likely looking at the end of the Republic.

Do none of you understand the constitution? The president doesn't have unlimited power. Trump is a bit authoritarian for my tastes, but not as much as Clinton. Additionally, seeing people who like Fidel Castro warn about a Trump dictatorship makes me unsure if I ought to laugh or cringe.

Seriously, there is no chance of a dictatorship unless a full-scale civil war breaks out, which we all know isn't going to happen, and even then it would be highly unlikely. The National guard and police may have to crush a riot or two, but that's the extent of it.

P.S. I love how you are all so concerned about rigged elections now after saying a month ago that Trump was a "threat to democracy" for not pledging to accept the results until he saw if there was fraud. The doublethink of the left is wondrous to behold.

LOL

What people tend to forget when discussing his 1988 campaign was he wasn't seen anywhere near as negatively then as he is now.

But that's my question, what has changed since then? The Hymie thing was in 1984.
You don't seem to think his advocacy for those who have been abused by police matters? You just look at one aspect of his record?

You don't seem to understand my comment. Read it again.

His political career, including his time as civil rights leader, is somewhat positive. His personal life is more negative.
I don't think that him saying "Himeytown" erases everything good he's done imo. It was not a good thing to say, sure, but we need to look at the whole picture if we are to assess him and his legacy all-around.
As a whole, I'm divided about the man. I wouldn't call him a full-blown FF by any measure.
I like Al Sharpton more than him.

After Tawana Brawley and Crown Heights!?!
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Why does everyone hate Jesse Jackson? on: December 01, 2016, 12:22:46 pm
People always seem to group Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson together, but while Sharpton is clearly a vile being, I don't see what Jackson has done that's made him so toxic. In the 1988 primaries he was doing decently with white voters, many at the time said they didn't back him because they were afraid he would lose the general election, not because he was into black identity politics or such. I haven't found much about his history after that, certainly no large controversies.

YES!

Possible establishment of an authoritarian, repressive, reactionary America in which 95% of the people are obliged to suffer for 2% -- but smile anyway. This could be the last free election involving federal offices in America for a very long time.

They weren't charismatic. That's all the American populace cares about.
