He's been a horrible person since he got the Corvair killed, but as Dibble said, who the hell cares?
17077  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: will Barack Obama be re-elected? on: November 06, 2008, 01:58:05 am
If he goes along with Congress, hammering everything through...No.

If he picks his battles wisely...Yes.

<snip>

So, barring any major events outside of his control, Obama will be difficult to beat.    
This.  I agree with the middle part too, just left it out to save bandwidth/space.

That's what I was thinking.  I can imagine many scenarios where Obama loses the Presidency in '12, but very few where he fails to get the nomination from his Party.  He'd need to be much worse than Bush and I don't think Obama has that in him.

I suppose my definition of "youth" is a little broad.
17080  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Status of the Bradley Effect? on: November 06, 2008, 01:23:02 am
It always seemed to be there ought to be a reverse Bradley Effect, in that people wouldn't want to admit to anyone, not even a stranger pollster that they were voting for a black, but once they were in the privacy of an election booth, they'd do it.
That's probably true....in Mississippi.  Or Boston/NYC.  The rest of us care a lot less about race and aren't afraid of to mention out loud that we're not racists.

1968?

It won't be any of those three....at least it better not.  Actually, it probably won't matter who the sacrificial lamb is.  Unless Obama totally funks up (which is possible), he'll win again in '12.
17083  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: The Choice of Rahm Emanuel is a declaration of war on Republicans on: November 06, 2008, 01:07:59 am
This should put to rest the "Obama is a Muslim" idiocy then right?  What with Rahm being a Jew and all.  Plus, he's Ari Gold's brother!


(Ari Gold, the talent agent played amazingly well by Jeremy Piven on Entourage is based on Ari Emanuel, who is the brother of Rahm Emanuel.)

edit-it seems he doesn't like the Comedy Central "news" programs though.  That's a big negative.
17084  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gay rights in the next 2 years. on: November 06, 2008, 12:59:37 am
If the Dems really want to lose in 2010/12 they should go after the guns before letting the gays marry.  Then maybe take "In God We Trust" off the money?  And the armed forces are much too big, cut by at least 3/4s.
17085  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Fundies praying to Golden Calf on: November 06, 2008, 12:46:37 am

Ok, "to" may have been a bit of a stretch on my part, but if that pic doesn't bother you (assuming you're a Christian) something is wrong in the world.
17086  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: GOP = Zombie Party on: November 06, 2008, 12:22:21 am
I think it's a little early to call them dead, but we can certainly pray for it.
17087  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of the Alaskan Electorate? on: November 06, 2008, 12:19:14 am
I also can't see the second option.  "Nuts" is how I view them.
17088  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Congratulations, Mr. Obama. Here's a missile deployment. on: November 06, 2008, 12:17:37 am
Russia to deploy short-range ballistic missiles to Kaliningrad enclave.

So Medvedev/Putin created a crisis earlier than Biden thought...

It's only a start, just wait and see what Putin does after Obama is actually in the White House.
17089  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Preparing for the Hard-Left State on: November 06, 2008, 12:13:17 am
Does Bono every come back to defend his position?  This drive by sh**t is annoying.
17090  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Where now for the GOP? on: November 06, 2008, 12:09:28 am
At this point....Funk 'em!  I hope they go down in flames.  Hopefully the libertarian phoenix rises to take their place.  (note that's a little l.  A libertarian party doesn't have to be the Libertarian Party.)
17091  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Another November 4 on: November 05, 2008, 08:31:59 am
What was it?  Were the results that took place because of it deserved?
17092  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Nebraska CD2 info? on: November 05, 2008, 07:32:12 am
They said on the radio just now that there will be a recount because it's so close.  Right now McCain is up by a few hundred.
17093  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Preparing for the Hard-Left State on: November 05, 2008, 01:23:52 am
That is not the view of this libertarian.  Not all of us are fearmongerers.
17094  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: Nebraska CD2 info? on: November 05, 2008, 12:59:26 am
Where can we get NE2 results?  Obama is currently ahead in Douglas County, but it's close.
To close to call last I heard.  Sarpy County went hard to McCain...probably because a large chunk of the population there is either white or in the armed forces (mostly Air Force but quite a few Navy...for whatever that's worth).  If Obama loses that electoral vote by one vote I'm going to kick myself for voting for Barr.
17095  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: How do the other branches of Christianity regard Eastern Orthodoxy? on: November 04, 2008, 11:06:28 am
From my experiences growing up in a So.Baptist church....they don't regard them at all.
17096  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: I think I might vote for Obama on: November 04, 2008, 10:20:43 am
Just got finished walking home from the polls and I'm 0-5.  Sorry Obamaniacs.
17097  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of the Preceding Poster's Signature Thread IV on: November 04, 2008, 06:11:57 am
Yeah, the "from God" thing could certainly be left out of the quote and it would still be just as effective.

Lego Batman can kick anybody's ass..... if he is prepared.
17098  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: I think I might vote for Obama on: November 04, 2008, 05:46:05 am
...and I want you to convince me.


I do worry if I vote for Obama I'll feel bad if he turns into an evil Red like StatesRights and others fear.  It's not out of the realm of possibility yaknow.
17099  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: I think I might vote for Obama on: November 04, 2008, 05:44:00 am
Here's a thought, and a funny one that's not meant to mean anything:

Now that NE-2 is in-play for the first and possibly only time in your life-time, an Obama vote would mean all that much more while a Libertarian vote (especially this year with an awful national campaigner) would mean all that much less.

You'll probably feel best voting Barr, but I just wanted to present another legitimate approach to your vote (and mine, for that matter, I live in CA) that makes sense.

I'm not trying to convince you, but rather hint towards why I support the Obamarama with "in the same ballpark" ideological views as yourself.
That was the spark that got me thinking in the first place.  And your reasoning, Obama not being Kerry, Gore or a Clinton and Barr not being your "typical" Libertarian candidate, is what fanned the flames.

Damn it, now I'm torn again.

Lewis and Clark Community College-When I was there most of my instructors/teachers/profs/whatever seemed to be slightly grown up hippies.  Save the guy that taught me Macro Economics, he was conservative.  That was a thousand years ago (1991-1994) though, I have no idea how it is now.
