Arizona, of course. I have no desire to threaten the Danish cultural heritage.

"Legitimacy" is obviously not a meaningful concept.

Insightful point! Ashkenazi Jews from Byelorussia had no experience with democracy. Naturally, when they fled the pogroms, they came to the shores of New York City and started weeping, asking themselves "what is democracy? i can't comprehend this," before establishing the monarchy of New York Oblast.

People implicitly claiming that Ashkenazi Jews who fled the pogroms more than a century ago had just the same culture as Syrian Sunni Muslims now Roll Eyes

What is the difference? This is a serious question.

Social issues alone might make Dwight a Republican regardless.  We do not know what his views on abortion would have been.  Also, someone born in the nineteenth century is rather likely to be a socon.

I'm pretty sure that people born in the 19th century are Democratic demographic. Tongue

Sure, the 3 (I think) of them alive are all female, and 2 are African-American, I believe.   But I think a white male born then would be conservative.

You, uh, missed the joke there.

Yeah, white people are basically without culture.

"There's no such thing as white culture" he said, posting on the internet bulletin board.
In English, in September, on a Tuesday.  Though maybe Xahar uses Dhu al-Qi'dah and Monggolbar?  (why yes, I did look that up)

Don't be absurd, I don't use the Islamic calendar for non-liturgical purposes. The month right now is ভাদ্র.

No to both
9  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Is Counterparts the best band from Canada of all time? on: September 01, 2015, 12:33:38 am
Speaking of Canadian music, Carly Rae Jepsen's new album is pretty great. I think it's the best entry in the '80s-pop revival genre since Tegan and Sara's last album. "Run Away With Me" is the best straight pop song I've heard in a very long time.

I have at this moment more hours of Canadian music on my computer than American music. It's interesting considering how rare it is to find good Canadian TV and movies that the Canadian music industry is such an embarrassment of riches. My favorite Canadian band (and my favorite band in general) is Arcade Fire, but I realize that's a pretty boilerplate answer and that there are a lot of other good answers to that question.

Harry, what are your thoughts on Missouri/Arkansas/Tennessee? I don't believe in any of them.

In this time it is important to establish firm mechanisms for the working of democracy. As a Socialist I support the constitution.

I'd vote for him.

There are areas humans shouldn't live in as many numbers as they live, but that's really only a problem for the people living in those areas.  They can move to places more suitable to human beings, as they should.

I certainly support this idea, but how can they do this?

Bringing back colonialism would be the best way to solve the refugee issue while maintaining Europe's racial purity, yes.
16  Forum Community / Mock Parliment / Re: Which city is going to serve as capital city? on: August 28, 2015, 01:47:30 pm
The capital is Cochabamba, as determined by a number of previous treaties.

I am opposed to requiring a two-thirds majority to amend a bill that is not itself passed by a two-thirds majority. I would also question whether such a clause could be enforced, as it would appear that Parliament cannot bind a future Parliament.
18  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Serious question: When will the US start taking in asylum seekers ? on: August 28, 2015, 11:11:21 am
It's a bad idea to be letting in immigrants who commit more than their fair share of crimes, have lower IQs, are drains on government resources, make neighborhoods unsafe, and are in every way a burden to our society.

In no way do they help us, they only harm us and cost us. Yet people like you want to welcome them in.

America has throughout its history had different levels of immigration. We're about due for a period of cutting it off completely and trying our best to assimilate the people we have here, lest our country be torn apart in a hundred directions by all the different groups of the world fighting over imposing their norms on us and taking our resources for themselves.

You make some unpopular but pertinent points, but please do not repeat this "ethnic IQ variation" claptrap.

When you agree with racists you have to come to terms with the fact that you deal with racists. If you're a white nationalist, then embrace it.

I find the notion that ag is ruining any thread incredible.

The Beauce and thereabouts are historically friendly to right-wing parties, but it would be fallacious to act as though it were a Tory stronghold. It was barely a decade ago that the Liberals beat the Bloc by less than 2300 votes there while the Tories lagged behind at barely 17%. It would certainly go NDP in the right election.

This is an American nation. We are Americans.
22  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of Simfan's socks on: August 27, 2015, 12:57:15 pm
Even if Simfan were otherwise so inclined (and he's clearly not), he's too busy with college and his life to waste time screwing around with socks - unlike certain folks who appear not to have much a life at all, and are left only with socking to give it any meaning to them it seems.

I like Simfan but it's obvious that none of this is true. One need only look at Nelson Hanford to draw that conclusion.

I will support this if it changes its name to reflect the proper American spelling of "labor".
