Pope Francis played key role in U.S.-Cuba deal

Wait, the Dems seriously couldn't field a candidate against a guy named "Young Boozer"?

At least they have actual lyrics.

Yeah, that article isn't remotely SJW in the contemporary sense. SJWs don't care about class, and they certainly don't care about the plight of white men (like person #2 in the article) no matter their social circumstances (unless they're gay or some other "minority" and sometimes not even then).

It is very "social justice-y" in the slightly older sense of the word, though.

Obviously horrible.
6  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: What do you think the government should provide? on: December 15, 2014, 03:40:49 pm
Generally only what the market in some way fails to provide (or rather, what it underprovides): non-rival and/or non-excludable goods, those with un-internalized positive externalities, natural monopolies (case-by-case), goods in otherwise incomplete markets, goods to correct for information failures, etc.

Obama 2012 vs Republican Senate Candidate 2014



When its Romney vs. Dem Senate candidate, Romney defeats every one except Schatz, Merkley, Markey, and Reed.

No, I was born in California. However, I've lived in WA about eight times longer than I ever lived there.

2. Seattle Seahawks
5. Arizona Cardinals

You need to pay attention to standings and schedules, my friend.

If Seattle beats Arizona next week and/or they end up with the same record, Seattle wins the division.

Blue.
16  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Position on Abortion - More Specific Answer on: December 12, 2014, 11:11:14 am
I'd take anything from #5 down, but option 7 is my position. I don't think personhood conflicts with this, though; self-defense and all.

I'd gladly vote for Santorum again.
20  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Major League Baseball HOT STOVE! on: December 10, 2014, 11:23:39 am
I'm quite happy the Red Sox didn't get Lester. Hopefully Boston goes 0-for-starters this offseason then fights the Yankees for last place in 2015 (well, I hope that every year, really, but it could easily happen this coming year).
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What religion are you? on: December 10, 2014, 11:19:17 am
Converted to Roman Catholicism almost five years ago (Easter 2010). I was raised vaguely Protestant, drifting from denomination to denomination before my dad basically stopped taking us to church. I became a nominal atheist in middle school, which lasted until about 2008.
22  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: How much would you miss American Football if it went away? on: December 09, 2014, 10:40:06 pm
Only slightly. As long as baseball's around, every other sport can die for all I care.
