51  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Does Leslie Rasmussen deserve a comeback? on: May 09, 2017, 06:51:51 pm
She blamed his rape on colleges "supporting partying" and literally said we "need to stop worrying about being politically correct every second of the day". Fvck no.
Was Brock Turner convicted of rape?

Was he even tried for rape?

According to RAINN, rape and sexual assault are NOT the exact same thing (though one often includes the other): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexual_assault#Definition

Is there something wrong about her "politically correct" comment--wrong enough to justify her being banned from publicly performing for life? Help me out, please.

I find her politically correct comment inappropriate in this context. And I'm not sure about the law, but I consider sexual assaulting someone while asleep rape. I think most would.

It is beyond gone for them in presidential races, but the right Democrat (one who is perceived as an outsider or moderate or populist or whatever) could easily win a Senate or gubernatorial race there. Missouri politics is quite awful, honestly. It is easily my least favorite "red" state.

What makes it different for a national candidate, if they'd vote for the exact same person on a local level? Trust?

It's okay everyone, he's 5'7". He won't be elected.

Doesn't hurt Putin.
54  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you support a fine for the parents of bullies? on: May 09, 2017, 12:31:18 pm
My point was not that parents are to blame for their child's actions, but they are their responsibility. If your child vandalizes property you'd have to pay the fine, why doesn't this apply to literal harassment of other people?
55  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Does Kander prove MO is not completely gone for Dems? on: May 09, 2017, 12:50:32 am
Kander received 46%, 8% higher than Clinton and 2% more than Obama 2012. In a better national environment for Dems he would have won. Could this translate to the national level?

58  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Justice Democrats to primary Joe Manchin on: May 08, 2017, 06:52:26 pm
Joe Manchin will barnstorm the primaries. Hopefully he will backhand this stupid SJW, and show what a real WV democrat is. JOE MANCHIN OR BUST!

What a real WV Democrat is.

Don't pretend that Manchin is anything but the best of the available options.

Working class whites for the most part have no respect for unions or workers rights, not since Reagan brought "rugged individualism" to the forefront of American politics, and cast everyone expecting anything from their government as a welfare leech.

Why can't they go after DiFi, who's freaking 83?

Cantwell even more so. I don't think WA progressives would take kindly on her vote against importing drugs.
60  General Politics / Individual Politics / Would you support a fine for the parents of bullies? on: May 08, 2017, 06:09:46 pm
Bullying is imo harassment, not just "something inevitable for children in school". Especially with the psychological trauma and tragedies that result from it. I think the parents of bullies should be given one warning to get their child under control, then fined every time their child harasses someone else. Somewhere along the lines of $50, maybe increasing with each incident.

I support JD, but I agree this is ridiculous. We can't win this seat with someone else. Feinstein, Casey and especially Cantwell are all better options.

On Monday afternoon, progressive grassroots organizations Brand New Congress and Justice Democrats announced their most significant candidate they have supported and bolstered so far: Paula Swearengin.

The significance of Swearengin’s candidacy is not based on the candidate herself, but rather the Senator she hopes to take down: West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin.

Ms. Swearengin is set to oppose Senator Manchin, a notoriously red Democrat who is mired in Big Oil and lobbyist cash. Manchin is one of the few Democrats who early on voted to confirm each and every one of Donald Trump’s nominees.
64  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Democrats only: What election result would you most like to reverse out of these on: May 08, 2017, 01:26:38 am
2000. Though I'm not sure things would have turned out differently, since the Clinton administration wanted a war with Iraq too, they just didn't have the political capital.
65  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: More hated by Democrats : Bush from 2006-2008 or Trump Now on: May 08, 2017, 01:24:10 am
I think it's even. I despise Trump more as an individual, Bush more as a President.
66  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion on BRTD on: May 08, 2017, 01:20:20 am
Yeah, I disagree with BRTD on a lot, but the ShadowOfTheWave part was relevant.

The main thing that bugs me about him though is quoting a major creep like Sargon who clearly isn't all that electorally astute either, and his hot takes about how the alt right is going to be so dominant that no Jew can ever be elected President and that the country will vote like Alabama/Mississippi in a few decades because of...YouTube comments.

Like him or not Sargon is one of the most popular Youtube commentators, therefore my reference to him predicting a Le Pen win was just that, a simple reference, not an implication he's someone to be listened to when it comes to predictions.

Most of the alt right stuff is hyperbole, but I noticed the complete takeover of online comments by these types a few years back (http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=214311.0 when basically no one in the media or on this site noticed them. Now discussion of the alt right in the media and on this forum is a daily occurrence, their quick rise does disturb me.

Jane's always seemed so down to earth and kind. Very disappointing if true.

Not one thing.
69  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of people who link to Sargon of Akkad on this forum on: May 07, 2017, 05:07:37 pm
Sargon definitely panders to the alt-right (that's where he gets the majority of his viewers), but he isn't one of them and identifies as a leftist. Check out his discussions with Kyle Kulinski.

71  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Emmanuel Macron on: May 07, 2017, 03:47:23 pm
Empty suit. Corporate background doesn't give much hope. I suppose the hope is that his disavowal of his Socialist past wasn't serious.

The Geller's were the worst part of the show. Would have been fine without them.
73  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Are modern "superhero" films too serious? on: May 07, 2017, 02:43:06 pm
I feel like modern superhero films take themselves too seriously. For example I prefer the Burton and even Schumacher Batman movies to the Nolan films, because they retain a comic book feel. Taking characters that are absurd and putting them into a serious setting ruins them IMO. The Raimi Spider Man films were decent but I haven't enjoyed anything since then.
74  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Say, does ShadowOfTheWave still post here? on: May 07, 2017, 01:57:18 pm
Hilariously ironic that Einzige was the one who uncovered this seeing as what he became...but still LOL. Typical Le Pen supporter!


That was a long time ago, almost a decade in fact. I was upset and said horrible things after that election because I was upset that black people were voting overwhelmingly for Obama over Clinton, which I presumed was because of race. I haven't used that word in years (and had actually forgotten I ever did). Nevertheless, it was awful, and I have removed it.

I'll have you know I voted for Clinton last year over Trump (the Macron of that election) and I have conceded that I would possibly feel differently if I were actually in France. I've have simply read the positions of the candidates and don't see what is more appealing about someone who is centrist at best on fiscal issues. But again, I don't know how I would see Le Pen if I was more familiar with her, I'm not exactly entrenched in French politics.
