If someone insisted on referring to Istanbul as Constantinople, I'd hardly be justified in correcting their post as a moderator.
That is the city's rightful name, and 564 years of Turkish occupation cannot change that.

I will not accept anything short of Byzantium.

American soldier betrays his country and leaks classified material to WikiLeaks = commutation

Russia leaks non-classified non-governmental emails to WikiLeaks = prepare for nuclear war

McMullin almost certainly won the collegiate parts of Provo.

If you're really playing this game, right now, Nixon says hello.

Sure, and Andrew Jackson, Lincoln, FDR, etc. Being a "dictator president" in this context isn't even a bad thing inherently.

So, uh, what is the "proper" ratio here? It's hard to make any real conclusions without one.

Have you been able to obtain an Indiana map yet?

Miles and myself are both working on Indiana. We're about 60% through the state, but it's a real pain.

Did Johnson win a precinct in Lake and San Bernardino Counties?

Stein won the precinct in Lake, and Johnson won a couple precincts including the San Bernardino one.

The inevitable result of a culture of postmodern cynicism.

Managed to finally see Silence. It's a beast of a film that really delves into some quite interesting theological questions. I generally liked it, but it's going to take time to sink in. As a Catholic, I really identified with Yōsuke Kubozuka's character, even if I'd rather be Shinya Tsukamoto's character.

I preferred Hacksaw Ridge, but other than having Andrew Garfield and religious characters, they're so different that it's hard to compare. The former's much more uplifting and fast-paced compared to Silence, but it's not nearly as hard-hitting on a personal level.

regarding the Huntsman talk: he's very strongly implied he will run if (and only if) Hatch retires.

It's now been eight years since he's lived in the state though so I wonder if that would prove to be a challenge for him

Huntsman isn't that well liked in Utah anymore...

http://utahpolicy.com/index.php/features/today-at-utah-policy/12010-utahns-give-huntsman-higher-approval-ratings-than-both-hatch-and-lee

Actually Huntsman is more popular compared to Lee or Hatch!

Mostly because Dems give him really high ratings. His numbers would collapse if he actually ran.

A number of fields use Masters holders as Professors.

This is the first step of a first step. Nothing binding. Calm down people.

Sorry but the writing is on the wall in neon lights. Who can pretend that chaos isn't  going to ensue?

I doubt half the things in the OP are actually abolished in the end.

Harris asking CIA Director-designate the important questions... about gay marriage. lol
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Jimmy Dore exposes Kamala Harris and Andrew Cuomo on: January 12, 2017, 01:05:53 pm
Harris just spent all her time in committee vetting the CIA Director-designate about whether the CIA will accept climate change, whether he supports gay marriage, and what the CIA's policy will be toward gay childcare. What a joke.

Is it not anomalous that all the key swing states needed for an electoral college win were all  anomalies, to the degree they were, in the comparison of polls to election results?

JTC's "Difference Anomaly" by state:



The polling error in WI, MI, and PA was much smaller than in neighboring Midwestern states IN, IA, MO, OH, etc. In general, the polling in swing states was pretty good compared to other states.

Wait, so did MD-6 vote for Trump or Clinton? I recall realisticidealist and Miles both told me it voted narrowly Trump, but that seems difficult to believe based on the county data and your map has it as going Clinton.

The original data posted by MD had Trump winning, but we both thought that conclusion was doubtful.
