Here, we see than Rahm Emanuel is a Republican.

If he was a real Democrat, he ask the police chief to fire that scumbag and, if the police chief refused, he would fire the police chief too.

I honestly don't understand the problem. Why shouldn't you have the choice whether you join a union or not?

Because the choice is between "leave/don't join the union" and "be fired".

Will the backlash from this help Democrats in the gubernatorial election?

No, Republican corporate overlords will blame Obama when they cut wages or fire people (to replace with ununionised workers) and that they should be grateful Republican laws will allow them to find a badly paid part time job at McDonalds or Wal-Mart.

Good.

Deserved punishment for those backstabbing coal workers.

You vote Republican, you reap what you sow.

Just out of curiosity, whose nominees are these judges?

Roger Gregory got a recess appointment by Clinton, but he was nominated by Bush afterwards (and confirmed 93-1, only Trent Lott objecting due to resess appointment). He is black and was one the judge that stuck down gay marriage ban on circuit.

Max Cogburn Jr. was nominated by Obama, confirmed unanimously. He is the one that stuck down the NC gay marriage ban amendment.

The dissident for the 12th district, William Osteen Jr. was nominated by Bush Jr. to replace his father William Osteen Sr.

Mainstreet Whitby-Oshawa: 44-38-13
If this seat is closer than it was in 2014, it is very ominous news for the PCs.

Or a reflection of lingering Trudeaumania lifting the Libs at the expense of the NDP.  After all, the PC share is still 3-4% higher here than in 2014--so for the real "ominous news", look orangeward rather than blueward.

We oranges only have to wait for Trudeau starting to do as every Liberal PM before, i.e. becoming right-wing.

His left-wing rhetoric pleases our voters, I'm not sure his actions will.

[M]ost young people in America (his base) are basically pro-Hamas.

Maybe if you define pro-Hamas as not seeing why America should prop up a successful first world country such as Israel.

Ignore Mortimer, he usually talks nonsense and he apparently didn't set foot in an university since long.

Good hold in Measham given the *ahem* circumstances...

Well, I suppose running the former district councillor (before Measham was split in two wards in 2015) and current county councillor helped.

The MP for Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough, Harry Harpham (Labour) has sadly died of cancer today. He was a councillor in Sheffield since 2004 and MP since 2015.

A coal miner which had to change paths after the 1985 strikes.

One question, would Hofer be a bad president from your point of view?

I don't know if you asked this question specifically to Tender, but if not, maybe you'll want to hear my POV as well.

Yes, Hofer would be a bad president for me - reasons for that are many, but among a few of them there is him being a member of the FP (and my personal distaste against the FP has not only to do with their policies but I guess even more with their associations into certain, shall we call them dubious. corners), his associations with the Burschenschaften and thus his pandering to paleo-German-nationalistic sentiments, and lastly, some of his just hilarious views regarding to his "special portfolio" in parliament, ecological issues. A man that apparently seriously believes the various Chemtrails-conspiracies is bad enough as such, but as the highest public representative of the Republic? He would be nothing but an international disgrace.

Nah man i didn't ask just Tender i meant it for anyone who knew something about him since I didn't know that much.

I don't like FPO that much either but I think they are miles ahead of SPO on their policies on the current Refugee situation, which is not to say they are good, just means that they aren't dumb enough to give the same welfare to Newcomer economic migrants and to Austrians that payed into the system for most of their life. But sadly, the SPO thinks that this is fair..



Given President is mostly a ceremonial position, his position on refugees isn't really relevent.

then a likely June EU referendum.

That would be a violation of Electoral Commission advice, which is asking the date being announced 6 months in advance.

Rubio has a smoking hot former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader wife and four kids.  He isn't gay. 

I don't believe "Rubio is gay" nonsense, but you realize this is not an argument at all?
After all, many in you party said than banning SSM wasn't a discrimination, because gay men are free to marry women.

Ever heard of lavender marriages?

67  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: France General Discussion II: Living under Marxism on: January 27, 2016, 10:09:02 pm
Question: why do left-wing French posters seem to hate PS so much?

Because gay marriage is pretty much the only thing in their program they accomplished?

Rest of term was liberal reforms to appease Merkel/employer association/EU/"increase competivity".

Their European policy is also pretty much always side with Merkel and berate Italy for trying to organise a left-wing alternative. Also, endorsing ND over SYRIZA and complaning about the "unstable" left-wing coalition in Portugal.

And now, they want to authorize a permanent state of emergency and lower civil liberties (allowing raids without warrants, among other things) because "Charlie Hebdo and Bataclan". Also, they used the anti-terrorist legislation (passed after November events) to do raids and arrest people in ecologist organisations opposing expropriations and construction of a big airport in Nantes. Also, they pretty much tried to ban all demonstrations, because "national security".

Really, I don't see why left-wingers would be annoyed.

Whatever you think of this whole fiasco, a person's death should never be trivialized.
Indeed.  And some people in this very thread wanted them crushed with the full power of the state.  I guess those posters got their wish.

I didn't want them to die, but, eh, police has to apply the law. Police tried to do their job and tried to arrest them, they got shot at, so they had to defend themselves.

So, if I understand you well:
Black thug shoots on police = kill
White trash shoots on police = flee?

70  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: "Obama to ban Solitary Confinement for Juveniles/low level Federal Crimminals" on: January 27, 2016, 12:01:20 am
Clearly none of you know what it's like in some of these juvenile centers across the country.  Lots of these kids are just as bad or worse than the adults in max security.  Obama has now taken away one of the main tools of discipline used by the guards... Making a blanket ban on solitary confinement is a huge, huge mistake.

And how would you know?

I know a hell of a lot more about this than you do.  Believe that.

So, either you are a former juvenile, which would explain certain things or you are one of those sadistic monsters which likes to inflict psychological torture to minors and works there (and which, sadly, make the jobs of the majority of the employees there more difficult). Or just a liar trying to bring an authority argument.

I wouldn't brag of any, if I were you.

Bibi is more and more insane, accusing Ban Ki-Moon of encouraging terrorism for saying that new settlements are throwing oil on the fire.

I suppose most Westerners are encouraging terrorism, then.

Finally, there was a grand jury in Dallas about that.

Which decided to disculp totally Planned Parenthood and instead indict two anti-abortion militants which tampered with records.

From what is understood, the people in those videos are in fact pro-life militants that infiltrated Planned Parenthood.

Very disgusting, instead.
