How hard is it to get into Duke?

You can see the statistics for yourself; beyond that there's nothing much to say. I'm not sure what kind of answer you're looking for but if your grades and test scores are good enough they'll probably take you.

No, that's just a strategic move to keep the NDP down. Grits have been doing this with social democratic third parties for nearly a century, it ain't new. Most recently, Paul Martin campaigned with then CAW-chief Buzz Hargrove in 2004/6.

It's not just the union speech, it's Trudeau capitalizing "Labour" throughout his speech, as well as making Liberal party membership free and stating he wants to transform the party into a "movement".

It can only be a movement if it becomes the "Labour" party (ie: the Labour movement).

At least that's what has happened in Britain, Australia and New Zealand.

That has happened in exactly none of those places. In Australia and New Zealand the liberal party (that is to say, the pro-free trade party) merged with the conservative party (that is to say, the anti-free trade party), while in Britain the liberal party was reduced to third-party status.

Please stop saying "Drumpf," it's gross and not funny. Use the proper term, .

I like "Drumpf", and I don't want to need to look up and copy-paste an emoji every time I have to mention him.

I'll be open to changing my terminology if he loses by a comfortable enough margin that he and what he represents won't be a threat in the near future.

I don't know what the joke is. Haha, what a funny foreign name! There are many reasons a person might have felt compelled in the past to anglicize their name. It's disgusting and xenophobic and I think much less of anyone who uses it.

Lean FF. Was a mediocre president. His relations w/ Bibi were bad but were decent, overall, with Israel and Jews.

He is tougher on terrorism than Hollande. He is likely who I will support.

What are your thoughts on the banning of pork-free menu items in schools?

Wetsuits and "modest swimsuits" (like the one I posted above) don't have the same hygiene and safety issues.

Please explain the "hygiene" issues here. I've yet to find an answer about this.

Non-whites are inherently dirty.

The murder of Sheikh Mujibur Rahman is a reasonable example of this, I think.

In general, though, I would say that in a leftist dictatorship, the sorts of institutions that usually support right-wing dictatorships (particularly the military) adopt a leftist patina.

lmao apparently it is a "personal attack" to point out a person's support of a white nationalist movement and draw the logical conclusions

anyway here's this quote:

Rubio or Kasich for me, but my ironic Trump support sometimes feels like actual support.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Poster boys for white privilege lie and denigrate Brazil on: August 19, 2016, 05:56:40 pm
I'm quite serious about this proposal: leave them there. Let them get rammed by Brazil's system, corrupt or not. The Olympics are just a large, slick, glitzy handful of candy that the internationalists who worship the fading world order use as an example to demonize so called "isolationists" like me. I don't see how the Olympics warrant our tax dollars covering the costs of getting American athletes out of trouble, etc. The Olympic Opening Ceremony year after year becomes more of a propaganda show than the other. 

On another note, I do approve of the fact that Team USA is not covered by the taxpayers. I wasn't aware of that until tonight. Now is the time to tighten the purse string even more and send a message that it truly isn't a pressing concern.

Are you unaware of how consular protection works and that American citizens are entitled to it?

I just wish that I heard a little more English on the bus.  It's really annoying because I don't know what they're saying, and for some reason, hearing a person yell and scream in a foreign language for ten whole minutes really gets on my nerves.

People like you are why I do not speak English on the bus.

This is correct; religious freedom is incompatible with French values.

Maryland, naturally. I can't fathom the boner people have for New England; it's bitterly cold and the parts that aren't uniformly white make up for it by being racist. The worst state, though, is Delaware, which is a protection racket masquerading as a state. I see no reason for me to pay blood money to Delaware when I drive from Baltimore to Philadelphia, two actual worthwhile places. Delaware contributes nothing.
