Love it. I've been annoyed the past few weeks that it hasn't been on because of the Neil DeGrasse Tyson Cosmos nonsense. I wish they would pick another time for that show, it's ruining my Sundays. I keep missing Bob's Burgers and Family Guy.

I like all the main characters, but my favorite is Louise, because of Kristan Schall's voice, I wish she was on the Daily Show more often.

It has been on; it's just that the timeslot changed.

It takes a truly remarkable group of people to look at Pakistan and wish that India were like that. Fortunately we have the BJP to fill that void.

Xahar, if you really think that the BJP can win an election and hold on to power after turning the country into Pakistan, you really shouldn't considered an "expert" on Indian politics. Do you think Gujarat and Pakistan are equivalent now after more than 12 years of Modi?

Modi hasn't held power at the Centre for those twelve years, so the comparison is facile. The pogroms that he sponsored were certainly on par with anything that Pakistanis have done. Would you deny that?

The Hindutva movement looks to Pakistan as its model for intercommunal relations. That much is obvious from the speed with which they yell that the Pakistanis are lynching Negroes any time the subject is broached.

There are too many vested interests that benefit from neutrality for it to disappear.

I haven't really been following this, and I'm insufficiently familiar with the election process that this may be totally impossible, but does the INC have any chance of pulling out a 2004-style upset?

Also, great map, Al!

It's certainly possible. At this point my guess would be that we'll see a hung parliament of some kind; the BJP obviously can't win enough seats to form government by itself and whether it can find enough allies is very much up in the air.

On the other hand, if he knows more than a handful of women, there's a good chance he's not posting on the Atlas Forum.

From the description they sound like they might well be a public nuisance.

Ideologically, how does the SNP today compare to CiU in Catalonia?

Rule from Paris is a tradition that dates back to the Revolution. It's not changing.

The "first-ballot" distinction is useless nonsense, but Mariano Rivera is the only relief pitcher of the modern era who belongs in the Hall of Fame.

For reference, here are the position players who have accumulated the most rWAR since 2005, Utley's first season as a starter:

1. Albert Pujols: 64.9
2. Chase Utley: 56.7
3. Miguel Cabrera: 51.0
4. Adrian Beltre: 47.7
5. Robinson Cano: 45.4

Hmmm, the BJP.  Nukes for India, national and state politicians at the forefront of campaigns to destroy mosques and attack Muslim civilians, ever-ramping up hostilities in Kashmir, ect., ect... Nope, shouldn't be in power. 

Obviously the pogroms are horrific, but I don't see any reason for India not to have nuclear weapons if other countries do. Are nuclear weapons reserved for white people? Considering India's foreign policy over the years, nuclear India provides a powerful moderating force in world affairs, and that's not even taking into account the persistent threat of Pakistani aggression.

I love how TXCD is taking this long to realize that this is a joke.

It doesn't help that the "joke" is not funny or interesting.

It hasn't been quite as good this season as it was last year, but it's certainly my favorite show on network television now.

19  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: IL/WI: Which Great Lakes state is more "liberal"? on: April 21, 2014, 11:02:35 am
Flagship university-wise, UW-Madison is more liberal than UIUC. I wouldn't call the latter 'conservative' by any stretch, but it's like 10x less political. Having a Naperville-heavy, a greater emphasis on 'apolitical' engineering as opposed to the liberal arts, and a high foreign born student body is probably why. Also not being located in Madison.

It's weird to me that there are schools where politics is a big deal. I know far more about elections going on in Berkeley than at my own school, because as far as I know nobody here cares.

every picture of Cathcon I see he looks like a completely different person.

Probably due to changing light and camera angle, as well as fluctuating length of hair and beard (when it's there).

Yeah, facial hair in particular tends to have that effect.

I practice the same religion as my parents and basically to the same extent as my parents. My personality isn't conducive to rebellion.

If 40% voted against, then a majority of Republicans surely voted against. But everyone tells there are no racists in the Republican Party!
Only whites can be racist, amirite? You know, people like me who are left leaning but independent are really turned off by the constant and trite faux outrage over "racism" in this nation. People like you throw that word around like a monkey flinging poo. It's juvenile, unsubstantiated, and has no place in American politics.

Demonstrate how racism not from white people is relevant.

Uh, Los Angeles won the Stanley Cup literally two years ago? Does Northern California not need one?

Does anybody in California plays hockey, outside of NHL players?

For whatever reason, American junior hockey teams are always full of players from Southern California. I've never understood it. As for where I'm from, obviously hockey's not big except as a spectator sport, but I had a few friends who played.

Difficult to tell from one picture, but the one on the right doesn't look too hard on the eyes.

Thanks for your contribution.
