1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: California Democrats call for elimination of superdelegates and caucuses on: June 26, 2016, 04:46:45 am
It's unacceptable for the Democrats, the party of minorities and urbanites, to give the privilege of going first to Iowa and New Hampshire, two of the whitest and most rural states in the nation.


No, it's the party of everyone.

The labour party needs to separate itself from the anti semitism that has taken over the party sacking Jeremy Corbyn and his buddy red Ken would be a good start

Ken Livingstone was suspended almost 2 months ago.

Will the Uribists will try to derail the whole thing and, if yes, can they do it?

This time I hope they leave. The childish selfishness of "if you make one single decision we don't like, we will leave!!1!1!!1!" is disgusting. England can do without them.

So, UK was childish? They acted exactly the same with EU.

The thing that really gets me is the dishonesty and fear mongering over Northern Ireland. There is absolutely not going to be border checkpoints set up. Absolutely no way. The most likely thing to happen is  there will be a passport required to travel between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

The Unionists won't accept that condition at all.

7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Question for gun lovers on: June 24, 2016, 12:25:07 am
Maybe I should host a range day invitation to all atlas members for gun safety and target shooting.  Would actually be a good thing to help educate people about guns.   

Personal note...  My best friend and his partner were anti gun but went to a range with me and really enjoyed it.  Actually changed their opinion on gun ownership. 

Part of my family are hunters and actually own guns. I'm for gun ownership, I just believe competence tests, licenses and registration are needed.

A referendum on the deal with EU.

RIP the pound, RIP the City of London.

They were good while they lasted.

RIP UK. RIP Great Britain.

I think Irish reunification may be on the cards.


Better said, long live Uk. They have lost enough of their National identity in these past decades.

Well, now they will loose their physical existence. England will have to stand alone.

Have you looked into how much of Goods the Uk imports from the Eu opposed to how much it Exports?

Dont think Germans will lose their huge Car market just because of this, if Britain hurts, big mama Merkel hurts.

The point is that the Scottish and the Northern Irish and more and more tired of the antics of the English.

Like another Obamacare repeal or a bill on bathrooms?

Oh, so some ahole on Facebook attacked gay people, I guess that's the same as an ISIS guy killing 49 people..  So according to your logic Christians are the biggest threat to gays?  Once again, you the expert at making false equivalencies, congrats.

To the average gay person, yes. Much more likely to be insulted by a Christian than killed by a Muslim, I would say.

Youre much more likely to be killed by a Muslim than you are a Christian, and thats point.. I dont give a damn if youre "insulted" on Facebook by a Christan, you'll get over it.  So im not sure what youre point is.

Seems you have to do a basic math course then.

America is 71% Christian and 1% Muslim, so you pretend that for every murder by a Christian, there is 71 murders by a Muslim?

Why do you limit it to America? When we look at things worldwide, homosexuals are much more likely to be killed by Muslims than by Christians:

Because we are talking of the issues encountered by gay people in America. What happens in Africa isn't relevent (and given you don't want gay refugees in the West, quite insulting to mention it).

It's obviously mathematically possible, but could you actually envision a scenario in which this happens? It seems like she would have to win Florida.

With Trump, it's very possible Clinton does better in Florida than in Pennsylvania.

A man god 20 months of Jail for abusing a child, what kind of sick justice system is this?

Could someone explain to me why he cant be sentenced to a correct sentance, fitting the crime.

Underage criminal system.

It will be 50-50 and will go through 35 recounts Sad

God I hope not. I'll have to sleep some time on Friday morning.

British law does not mandate recounts. Each council will declare final results for their area, which can be only changed by court.

He has a right to free speech, a Libertarian like you would no doubt support that

Free speech does not apply to private premises, Dave (the admin) is free to ban anyone or to close down the whole thing the second he wants.

Since when is Parc-Extension a neighbourhood of 'dirty hippies'?

Since never, unless it changed in the last 2 years. Given the state of housing there, I doubt hippies would move there anyways.

It's rather "poor immigrants talking not French nor English". Also "forest of satellite dishes", there is like 10 on every building.

A revote would be fycking insane. This is embarrassing for the FPÖ.

It would mostly be slightly embarrassing for the election officials in question and the country as a whole. Mostly because some election officials acted in a very negligent manner and not 100% in line with the election law and vote count procedures ... and with their actions they also discredited the hard work of the other election officials who did it right.

The FPÖ and Hofer should come out relatively unharmed, but I still expect that VdB would win a re-vote.

No, it would mostly be embarrassing for these morally corrupt judges. You don't overrule the decision of the people over technicalities. Only proven fraud.
21  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canadian parliament passes assisted suicide bill on: June 19, 2016, 10:49:17 pm
Of course my preferred solution only works in common law countries and I'm not sure how to resolve that. In the case of Canada I'm not sure how it would apply or fail to apply to Quebec.

Assisted suicide was banned under Criminal Code. Quebec uses the federal common law for crimes, for the record. There is no such things as malpractice in Quebec, you sue the hospital and/or make a complain to the Doctor's College in hopes they will ban him from practice. The "let's sue doctors for malpractice" is a VERY american thing.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: By 2:1 margin, Black South Carolinians Support Sentencing Church Shooter to Life on: June 19, 2016, 03:36:29 am
Interesting indeed. Religiosity most likely plays a big role in opposing the Death Penalty for them.

Perhaps, but that makes one wonder why religious whites are so fervent in supporting the death penalty then.

More likely, blacks are generally just opposed to executions, and their principles are not altered by the circumstances of this hateful prick.

Black churches tend to emphasize social justice in their theology, whereas white Baptists and Evangelicals tend to emphasize penal substitution a lot - avoiding the punishment you deserve [eternal hellfire] for your sin by believing in Jesus, which generally goes hand-in-hand with supporting severe punishments for crimes.

In short, Black churches are Christian, while white Baptists and Evangelical follow an hateful religion that has nothing to do with Christianity.

25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Majority of Americans support assault weapons ban.... on: June 19, 2016, 12:13:03 am
Common sense could tell you that you don't need an assault weapon.

I'm getting really sick of this argument. Gay men don't need to have consensual butt sex. Somehow I doubt that the "need" argument would convince any gay men to oppose the outcome in Lawrence v. Texas. A right is a right irrespective of need, that's why it's a right.

Constutition gives a right to wear weapons. Not a right to wear all weapons.
