Why is winning with less than 50% not an option in this poll?  That's probably the most likely result at this point.

This disgusting hatemonger is one truly messed up kid.

and creating threads like these is not a healthy response.

he's what, 14?   At that age I believed in confiscatory 100% tax rates for people over median income, and in universal mandatory sterilization in order to prevent child abuse.   Adolescence is weird,  for some of us more than others.   But, I learned from smart people who showed me the error of my ways, and he may as well.  But berating him isn't going to help.

this is a story is a big nothing at this point.   Some unnamed source says Ryan is uncomfortable with the current situation, as if we couldn't guess that already.  Doesn't mean he is going to be endorsing him.

I was wondering when someone would post that here. I'm thinking it was a regular user who created an account just to post that, which, if true, makes me think it might have a whiff of legitimacy to it since they wanted to post it anonymously.
  nah socks are a pretty standard satire vehicle too though.   whoever it is, I hope they stick around.

I still don't see all of these offended people you guys are talking about...

Here is the thread I was referring to. Apparently, the incident was extremely offensive and traumatizing to many posters.


People are playing it a lot more cool in this thread. But the fact that a) it exists and b) has so much whinging in it means it is still stirring beneath the surface.

You need to either stay in character or drop the act.

I'm pretty open to the idea of people creating an open culture for public nudity, public masturbation, and public sex. I think this should be normal. It's like Chaturbate without the internet. I also think guys and girls should familiarize with each other to the point to where there is no seemingly gender difference. I believe this will open a culture of consensuality where an individual chooses what they like sexually and by who. With less emphasis on sexuality, I think sexual behaviors will become rationalized. Young girls will have more respect for the intimacies of procreation and maybe masturbate instead of having intercourse with guys. I think it should be allowed but not to the point where everything is like sodom and gomorrah where everything is completely immoral. There should be agreed common moral boundaries, such as not using animals or those not of age. I would like to think this would bring about a world of unique etiquettes and friendships. For example, I came up with the idea that friends would casually fap with each other, regardless of gender, as if hanging outside in their own backyard. It could be a casual past time activity. I would love a society that has this feature. The less emphasis on nudity and sexuality, the more society will see each other as equal and have nothing to hide or be ashamed of. I find the idea refreshing and delightful going out for a jog in the morning without caring if I have clothes on and passing my neighbors making love in the park and me having the ability to wave at them as I pass them by. Or going to Kroger in my boxers and a robe, not fighting the morning wood, and casually doing my shopping. Or even casually masturbating while waiting at an office for my turn to go inside a room before a report. Of course that would mean people would have to bring towels, disinfectants, and wipes wherever they go, but I could see this being main stream in the future. I think maybe a good idea would be to have a social trend that nudity and sexuality in public is more for the younger generation than the older generation and for those who keep their body healthy and fit and to avoid people who are obese. I could imagine many innovations in clothing, fashion, sub culture and media would be created for companies to increase their profit margins. I mean imagine young girls using body jewelry, hair cut styles for their pubic hair, clothes that are meant to be with topless or bottomless body styles. Imagine commercialization of openly selling sexual toys (like from a vending machine), creating public rides or machines for adults that give them pleasure in public, the ability to have open showers and sleeping benches, have nude or sexualized olympics and sports, have a nude holiday, celebrate Japan's Kanamara festival in the US, and have ads or movies that feature full nude celebrities and actors. And obviously this would just be the start. Eventurally people would find this normal one day and not think anything of it. Moreover, I guess I'm open to the idea because it's always been somewhat of a fantasy of mine. I hope this doesn't sound too disturbing, but these are my opinions. I would definitely vote for it.

Just got renamed. Sadly, none of the actually good suggestions were chosen; it was instead renamed Russell Lee Elementary.

One of the great photographers of the Depression-Era South and West, and one with a connection to Austin.   Excellent choice.

What do the feds have against our governors?  Leave us alone!

Then maybe your Governors shouldn't be so corrupt. This didn't come quick enough.

your governor was feeling lonely?

yeah, they have some great songs from the mid-to-late 60s like "Holiday" and "To Love Somebody" and "Spicks and Specks."  I'm not a fan of their later stuff, disco or otherwise.

Your result for Nationstates Gameplay Ideology Test ...

Centrist Defender

69% Liberty, 62% Equality, 62% Stability and 42% Power!

You feel that all three principles are important. You take some interest in politics and definitely have opinions. However those opinions may be formed on a case-by-case basis because you lack an overriding commitment to any of the principles. You may sometimes get confused by complex political issues because you can be persuaded by different arguments. Moderates like yourself are important in mediating between others in a parliamentary democracy. If you get involved in politics then you may well be working alongside the pragmatists among Conservatives or Liberals or Socialists depending on your inclinations and circumstances.

You are generally opposed to militarism and would rather people settle disputes through diplomacy rather than war, but you aren't averse to defending the weak against attack.

Your result for The Political Personality Test ...

Horizontalist - Reformist - Traditionalist - Individualist

You prefer liberal economics and conservative social values. You support democracy and oppose big government.

Examples of historical HRTIs include:

David Cameron - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_cameron

24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you support a GST/VAT in America? on: May 22, 2016, 10:10:00 pm
possibly. I don't have a clear idea of how this works on a practical level in terms of infrastructure or ease of use.  But it's an idea worth exploring if it can replace the payroll tax.
25  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted in the 1996 presidential election? on: May 22, 2016, 10:02:37 pm
Dole/Kemp.  Most of Dole's positions then I disagree with were basically held by Clinton also, with the opposite not at all the case.  Probably the easiest general election choice for me in the past several decades.
