"It only helps us when they get it wrong. When they are blind to who we are and what we are doing."

Sounds like he was trying to make some point in edgelord fashion about the advantage of being covert and misunderstood.

posting for the last part
This is some serious hilara-garbage.  I like how he just vaguely states that he knows from "Wharton admission requirements" what Trump's IQ is.  I assume he found the average SAT for Wharton admissions, or something, and correlated that to IQ tests.  But I have no idea, since he doesn't even bother to explain the methodology behind his most crucial claim in the article.  He then goes on to babble a bunch about Maslow's concept of self-actualization, which has absolutely nothing to do IQ or anything, besides the fact that the author and his wife seem to like the idea that Trump is a "self-actualizing man" or something.  This is total trash, and the sort of thing for which the Goldwater Rule was created.

FWIW:  I think Trump is a pretty irrational and disorganized thinker, but I wouldn't be surprised if he has a reasonably high IQ.  I very much doubt Obama has a low one.

What is it with partisans arguing not that their side is right but that their side is smarter?

It's simple, TJ.  People who agree with us ideologically, for some unexplained reason, happen to have a bunch of favorable personality traits, even though there's no logical reason to assume they'd have any association with ideology.  People who agree with my beliefs are more likely to be smart, honest, clean, and they always return their library books on time.  I know this because I notice people I don't like having bad traits all the time!

anyway here we are now

Hillary was the wrong candidate in the wrong year. The Democrats made a big mistake.

Democracy was a big mistake.  Thanks a lot.

They'll probably win some seats in the House. The Senate map is not good for them.

I doubt it. It didn't provide any new info. Everybody already knew Hillary had an email problem. 

Would not have made a difference in PA in any case, as they don't have early voting.

"How crazy is your social media feed?" is a question only asked by people who have no immediate insight into the real world.

HA.  Desecrating the flag doesn't require an amendment in any case. People are already doing it.

The best candidate during this elections, I wonder if there is anyone who ever considered voting for him on Atlas forum.

Yes, I plan to vote for him, but the fact that you like him makes me reconsider. Tongue


Sad

Nothing personal.  There's some people who support ASP I've come across have some views that I'm not a fan of, and so it feels a bit strange sometimes, is what I meant.  Anyway I ended up writing him in.

The real question is how in the hell did Justice win....

Yeah, this was a shocker to me as well.

A lot of the people who voted for Trump have no interest in the Republican party as such except to stop those they view as DC coal-hating liberals.  I think some people looked at the result of the 2014 Senate race and interpreted it to mean that state races now belonged to the Republicans along with the presidential elections. But that was a much lower turnout election and tells you nothing about those who only vote in presidential years. This is even more the case considering that all those whom Trump brought out that hadn't voted before or not voted in quite a while.

40  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: A mistake I think the Clinton campaign is making on: November 07, 2016, 09:26:52 am
I totally agree. The Clinton campaign has failed in telling the positive story of Clinton and they have failed in attacking Trump where he is truly dangerous. Attacking Trump for being anti-PC is counter productive at this point.

At any point.

The only reason I like Trump is because he is anti-PC. I disagree with most of his positions (immigration, trade, some of his fake social positions...)


Very similar to me.  I actually dislike Trump as a person and all things equal prefer Clinton policies overall when compared to Trump but will vote for him for being anti-PC.  Also I want to vote for White consolidation.

"White consolidation"  Huh  Is this the idea that a more explicitly race-based politics is somehow a good thing?

I'd go with the "useless/fun" option, might not end up being any less useful than the other stuff, and could provide a different helpful perspective on crime-related subjects that you wouldn't get otherwise.    Either that or the Digital Forensics, if you think you have a knack for it and you enjoy it. You'll have plenty of time to do "in-field" courses in graduate school.
42  About this Site / The Atlas / Re: Petition to Ban Pingvin99 on: November 07, 2016, 08:55:27 am
Pingvin is awesome, let's not.

It's not a debate.  If you can't grasp why Pingvin must go, then you should leave too and only come back if/when you've developed an adult brain.

If your post is an example of the adult brain, I suggest delaying growing up as long as possible.



(If your direct personal attack against Pingvin and Classic Conservative stays, then so should my much milder and cleverer response to it. I stand by it 100%. Anyone who says of something being debated "It's not a debate" while denigrating young people should not complain when someone criticizes their post.)

This poll is biased b/c of Trump's great relationship with the blacks.
44  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Animals on the 2016 Ballot? on: November 04, 2016, 04:20:20 pm
No on all of these.

MA: If it were limited to be about pork or veal then I'd vote yes. But with chickens, the effect is likely to be to make eggs more expensive to make them "cage-free" in a sort of way that isn't necessarily any more humane.

MT: As I understand it this would apply also to traps that do not directly kill or wound.  Which would make it harder for people doing subsistence hunting with no real benefit to the hunted animals or to the safety of other animals or humans.

OR: Needs to be more carefully directed.  As much as I hate what game trophy hunting represents, in certain cases under strict controls, given the current situation, allowing it can be beneficial to conservation.  What needs to be gone after is the sort of poaching that is already mostly illegal.

Right to hunt: This is unnecessary and may preclude actual well-drafted laws -unlike these ballot measures- to prevent animal cruelty.

Yes, homely routinely counted making such statements in the voting booth about the candidates as campaigning.

Is Bender using "Bender" as his slogan to avoid association with his Hispanic last name? It should be "Bender Bending Rodriguez 2016" actually.


I was actually making fun of the people who attacked Bernie for "hiding his Jewishness" (which mostly came from two Jewish Clinton supporters I saw posting on AH.com, but still, I thought that was a particularly insidious claim to level against Sanders)

That's funny since "Bernie" sounds more Jewish than "Sanders" anyway.
