I consider them distinct from Protestantism, but, if you must lump them somewhere, then Protestantism is more fitting than "Cathodoxlicanism." They're "Protestant" in the "if you're not Cathodox, you're Protestant" line of thinking, but that's about it.

What's 'Cathodoxlicanism'?  Or did you just invent this word?

No, I didn't make it up. It's a portmanteau of Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglicanism. They're the big three pre-Protestant Christian churches that are all fairly similar to each other, more so than they are to the vast majority of Protestant churches.

Can't think of a good reason why not. Should be a win-win.

How many of those Reps actually represent white, rural areas? Maybe Gwen Graham?

Does it matter? There are cities in the south, you know.

Yes, but calling Democrats elected there "Southern Democrats" is a bit disingenuous. They're more like "Democrats who happen to come from the South."

I guess hoodies are marginally better, but both are awful. Very few people can pull off either without looking either trashy or like a neckbeard.

If it's Hillary vs. Jeb, it'll be a referendum on Obama, Bush, and Clinton.

CinemaSins is much better, but Honest Trailers is quite enjoyable, even if they're a bit biased in some cases.
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Grand jury reaches decision in Ferguson case (Announcement tonight) on: November 24, 2014, 10:11:24 pm
It took me this long to realize this was a grand jury shooting down even the possibility of indictment. I am very, very confused - is shooting anyone thirteen times not even worth a trial?

It's basically impossible for a competent prosecutor to fail to get a grand jury indictment. Unless of course he's not trying to.

Failing to get a grand jury indictment is not uncommon in cases concerning police officer shootings.

Looks like the Red Sox have also officially signed Pablo Sandoval.
12  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Major League Baseball HOT STOVE! on: November 24, 2014, 03:52:58 pm
To me, the 2013 Red Sox were a case of every player on the team having a career year simultaneously. As of now, they don't have nearly enough to win that division or a title.

Fine, I confess. He is my sock. Why else do you think we have the same avatar?

I guess you're Mechaman then?

Option 2 is a sign of extremely poor health. Option 1 is just a lack of practice at a sport.

Well, not just a lack of practice. Also a complete inability to make adjustments.

Alaska isn't really libertarian.

Yeah, the state has socialized oil, after all. The state is big on public-funded projects; that's part of what made Palin so popular prior to 2008. Sure, they barely voted to legalize marijuana, but that hardly makes it libertarian nowadays.

Idaho Governor, 2014:


I ended up with a lot of the extra vote left over after changing the winner in as many as I could, so I started ratcheting up Balukoff's percentage based on the Atlas scale.

The final result was

Otter: 202,554 (46.05%)
Balukoff: 202,407 (46.02%)

Get ready for four years of gridlock, Alaska.  You tossed out the decent, bipartisan Republican for an extreme, hackish "Independent."  You've made your bed, now lie in it.
