You can't talk about German Catholic counties without mentioning Putnam and Mercer Counties, Ohio.

I don't know why that county is so pro-Paul, but it'll probably continue.

Crazies tend to stick together.

4  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What ideological labels would you use to describe your politics? on: March 27, 2015, 06:28:02 pm
These labels are sort of accurate, but mostly just suggestive.

Communitarian
Technocratic
New Keynesian
Social Conservative
Christian Democratic (of the left-wing Catholic variety)
Some proclivities toward a non-secularist High Modern approach
Internationalist

Generally, I prefer an active government that uses highly scientific means to achieve non-secular ends. All means that produce properly-realized ends that align with these normative goals should be on the table, and the government should not be constrained in achieving them. A perfect government is omnipotent, omnibenevolent, and perfectly efficient; although such a case is impossible, this fact should not dissuade from its pursuit.

The results of this poll show exactly why I have to remain an Indy.

Something like this:

A meteor.

Bush does seem like a good candidate for Mormons to support.
13  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: 2015 NCAA Basketball Bracket on: March 19, 2015, 04:56:54 pm
The end of the UCLA/SMU game was ridiculous. Correct call, but hilarious nonetheless.
14  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: 2015 NCAA Basketball Bracket on: March 19, 2015, 02:22:39 pm
I just hope Georgetown doesn't get too far (GW student)

Hopefully EWU takes them out in the first round.

All 99 is the most likely outcome.

The Fountain, Interstellar, Man of Steel.
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should schools be able to expel students because of their speech on: March 16, 2015, 01:15:18 pm
A school should be able to expel a student for any reason that they're allowed to use to deny their initial application.
18  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Carbon Tax vs. Cap-and-Trade System on: March 16, 2015, 02:47:09 am
There is a ton of literature in environmental economics about this exact issue. The short answer to which is more effective and efficient is that it depends; there are scenarios when either would be more preferable than the other. The biggest issue is how they behave under uncertainty and imperfect information regarding either environmental damages or abatement costs, along with elasticity of those functions and the correlation between the two.
19  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Sports you like on: March 15, 2015, 12:36:52 pm
1. Baseball (huge Angels fan due to my dad, wife likes the Mariners)

BIG gap

2. American football (Seahawks fan due to wife and no LA team)
3. College football (Generally like USC, UW, WSU, EWU for various reasons)
4. College basketball (Gonzaga fan due to wife, also like UW)

I have a positive opinion of hockey, but I don't watch it much. I generally like the Ducks and Canucks.

While I have a positive opinion of the Sounders, I can't stand watching soccer.
20  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Can places have an inbuilt ideology? on: March 14, 2015, 01:04:57 pm
Places with strong natural beauty tend be associated with inherent environmentalist leanings.
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Best Populist of Atlasia on: March 13, 2015, 01:28:51 am
Probably Miles. I don't know most of the other posters listed, and he seems like a better poster than myself, so that's where my vote goes. Besides, I'm not much of a populist; a communitarian, sure, but I'm too elitist to be a populist.

Claire's character development is interesting though.

Development is a kind word for what they've done with her. I don't find her actions in S3 remotely consistent with the previous seasons. It seems all she is now is someone who intentionally or otherwise messes up Frank's plans and is a general pain in the ass. I can't stand her anymore.
23  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you feel sorry for the white liberals in Birmingham, Alabama? on: March 12, 2015, 01:32:23 am
Of course, I doubt BRTD feels sorry for conservatives in San Francisco (white or otherwise) despite an almost identical situation.

I would be wondering why they weren't wearing an alb.
