In light of their comments just within this thread, TNF and Snowstalker seem like obvious candidates, though Snow obviously is just trolling.
Snowstalker is a actual racist though.

So yesterday the Ukrainians claimed to have captured Russian paratroopers and today the Russian MoD confirmed that they were indeed Russians. Naturally they claimed that they accidentally crossed the border. So either Russian paratroopers are idiots or Russia's excuses continue to get thinner.

Wasn't the Communist Party outlawed or something ?
its faction was disbanded in parliament but not kicked out of it or something like that. I think a ban on PoR and the commies hasnt been passed yet.

Yeah I just got polled for by some instate pollster,  It was focused on the local state assembly race.  Somewhat similar to yours in that alot of the questions seemed rather loaded.

The kid who was shot in the leg during the West Point riot last week has died. The kid had a totally treatable wound, he was on the front pages of the news all over the world. It's not like this was a massacre, only two or three people were shot. Most prominent was this teen, who had gone to the store to buy food and got caught in the crossfire coming home.

Apparently, the kids' family drove him to JFK hospital where he was refused admission; then they drove him from hospital to hospital all over Monrovia and not a single one admitted him. Finally he ended up at Redemption Hospital and bled to death. He needed an infusion of blood but there was no one in the whole city who could give him blood, so after 2 days he just bled to death, his wound totally untreated.

This is a guy who was on national news and his photo was splashed over every paper in the country. And he couldn't get someone to treat a simple wound for 2 days, and died. Health workers dressed in full ebola gear came to pick up his body and wouldn't let his family near him.

There are stories of pregnant women wandering from hospital to hospital in Monrovia and getting rejected, finally giving birth with no care and some of them died.

This is the new Liberia... NO health system AT ALL. You might as well be in the stone ages. On top of that, it is reported that there are thousands of HIV patients who are no longer getting their retrovirals because the clinic they were going to has stopped functioning.
Also the old one near total lack of healthcare isnt new in Liberia. You think they had working hospitals during the civil war?

This is what I have been able to find http://www.al-monitor.com/pulse/originals/2014/01/violence-yemen-national-dialogue-muslimi.html#
Seems violence and political fighting probably made elections impossible to hold.

Russia has unilaterally moved its "humanitarian convoy" into ukraine. The chances of the war becoming official has gone way up. All it will take is for "ukrainians" to bomb it.

They already bombed another Russian convoy last week.
That was one of the many undeclared military convoys, not to mention there is no proof that ukraine actually hit it chances are it was bluster. This is russias official white humanitarian trucks now.

Option 1 means you can't even read or listen to political news or political history, have access to political information, or discuss politics with others.  You must be completely unaware of all political events that occur during the time, and you can't find out about past political information that you don't already know. 
That isnt as hard as you think it is.
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: China vs. India on: August 17, 2014, 10:17:41 am
First of all, Freedom House is literally funded by the CIA, so their word on anything is worthless. Secondly, India's "democracy" is marred by a prime minister who tacitly approved of religious riots and of course the still-remaining caste system. And though I will not defend China's internet censorship or use of cheap sweatshop labor (though India is far worse in this latter category), the idea of only considering bourgeois rights rather than access to public services, literacy, extent of labor aienation, etc. is dumb.
China is more of a bourgeoise state than India is.

In the 75th AD there is a primary on the R side between ken mandley a pastor from turtle lake and romaine quinn the former mayor of rice lake. who is 23 and was mayor at 19. he was also a paulite back when he was mayor, I dont know if he still is. 

I will be voting quinn of course, and probably will vote for nutters on the rest of the gop ballot. Smiley

A rouge pro-American general? Interesting.

He's more tan than rouge.


Haftar is not only a pro-American general, he is in fact an American general, since he holds a dual Libyan-US citizenship.
Using it in that way implies hes a general in the US army so no that doesnt quite work.

Yes, that's insofar correct that Haftar is not with US Army, but possibly with the CIA.

True but his title is probably not "general" in the cia. Tongue

Pompeo looks like he'll be winning his seat. Surprisingly, Huelskamp is in more trouble. Who is LaPolice anyway?

Pro-compromise Republican with no prior political experience. Served in Desert Storm then did something in public education.

Pretty crazy that a pro-compromise Republican stands a chance at unseating a Tea Party incumbent in an R+22 district.
Farmers love their subsidies.

I spent last week in the Boundary waters of MN.

That sounds fun; I love the area.

Did you run into any big animals?
