One thing people seem to miss on the education gap is how it also correlates in part with age.

Quote
President Donald Trump offered the job of national security advisor to retired Vice Adm. Robert Harward on Monday night, and was a bit surprised when Harward responded by saying he needed a couple of days to think it over.

If, as expected, Harward accepts the job today, he is likely to bring in his own team, from deputy on down, with a focus on national security types with some experience under their belts.

He was wanted by Mattis from what ive heard.

Wow. First Putin and now Greek internet trolls are getting deep into the Republican Party. Very impressive form of entryism this.
There is also a thing with some other republican congressmen accusing the former ambassador of trying to get leftists+islamists into power in Macedonia. Which means VMRO has also bought a few members of congress.

Sen. Collins, Murkowski, Scott and Isakson all withholding judgment on Puzder's nomination after he revealed he hired undocumented immigrant


I'm guessing this will either end up similar to Tillerson (people pretend they are concerned and then vote Aye anyway), or Puzder may pull out.
There is talk of scott walker angling for it if he pulls out.

That's not a very funny joke.
Not a joke but it seems hes denying the rumors. http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/govt-and-politics/scott-walker-nixes-speculation-he-s-in-mix-for-donald/article_d3824fe2-a53c-5365-a2d3-fca4e9d9b589.html

Sounds more likely to be criminal related stuff from the description rather than terrorism

Moroccan guy has been cleared. Quebecois guy is only suspect.

Well if she's a potential presidential candidate as some would have us believe that what people outside her district think IS quite relevant.

In THIS case - absolutely... I never doubted it. Otherwise - it's only an opinion of HER voters which is important to her. I would never say that, say, Democrats can't criticize, say, Matt Gaetz, but i am absolutely sure he will pay zero attention to such criticizm. He doesn't run for anything, but FL-01, AFAIK, and people in FL-01 will mostly support him against such critics..

This is simply my reaction when i see hysteric cries "primary him/her!". From everyone, though in most cases these cries come from "activists" of both parties, whom i strongly dislike. If people of the district do want to primary somebody - they will do it without such "orders". If not - they are absolutely within their right to ignore such cries..
Bizarre that you of all people are defending a sanders supporter. Seeing as they are the primary everyone types.

BRTD does this to every subject he gets on i fail to see what is new or offensive about this.

Ha! Just saying to people who think it tolerates horrible posters.
Well except you all adverstised it as a safe place where people cant get banned. Turns out you are hypocrites.
12  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Not such a good year for FDP politicians either on: December 10, 2016, 01:06:18 pm
So maybe FDP as a party will be next? Hope so.
Seeing as they are actually recovering again in polls probably not.
13  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays? on: December 09, 2016, 10:00:20 pm
"Merry Christmas" is probably the most tolerant/most anti/Christian, as the sayer is likely referring to the stripped-down, secular, commercialized "holiday" erected by the West as a substitute for real religion. I'll stick to "Happy Holidays," thank you very much!
Cathcpn is correct of course. But I personally dont say either unless someone says it to me first.
14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which was a bigger failure? on: December 07, 2016, 03:20:12 pm
Phantom Menace grossed 1billion dollars worldwide. Clinton got 65 million votes. Phantom Menace by an order of magnitude.

1. worldwide
2. not every ticket was 1 dollar
Didnt the Clinton camp spend around a billion to lose the election though?
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Trump in the Dakotas on: November 13, 2016, 11:07:45 pm
Not sure but maybe the collapse of grain prices this year played a part? many of the same rural midwest counties that swung hard to dukakis had big swings to trump.

Trump coattails.


He ran ahead of Trump.
Not to mention there is literally trump-feingold voters in SW rural counties.

From Arkansas hedges was on the ballot there as a Independent. In MS and CO where the ticket was listed as Prohibition party the ticket only received 683 and 175 respectively.

walked across the highway and voted. assuming the number they told me I am is turnout I was number 230 something. Total number in 2012 was about 500 so its probably on pace to match turnout.

mi in play!
Looks like Hillary is scurrying back to MI to defend her territory.
Perhaps. but a poll in which trump is at 38 is not any better for him.

I don't think anyone has taken Drudge seriously in over a decade.

Trump's rally in West Allis, Wis., on Sunday is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. CT. The Packers game kicks off at 3:25. hmm
Notably we are playing Indianapolis so surely hes not bringing pence with him. Tongue
22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: So what is going on in South Korea? on: October 29, 2016, 01:30:37 pm
Actually this reminds me of when the Blairs associated themselves with New Age cranks like Jack Temple. There was a Sunday Times story back in the day where supposedly Tony and Cherie went to the Caribbean and were "reborn" in a "Mayan womb" and smeared each others bodies with mud and fruit juice. Not to mention the feng shui consultant and Cherie's magic crystals.

And, err, Hillary's seance in the White House.
Lets not forget Nancy Reagan and her astrologer.

Trump almost certainly only believes in shadow stats.
24  About this Site / The Atlas / Re: Petition to Ban Pingvin99 on: October 22, 2016, 03:55:41 am
Well, this forum is regularly calling for killing Assange, but I don't see any outrage.

No, I'm not putting Hillary and Assange at the samel level, but double standard is unacceptable.

Assange is a rapist, an interloper, and a hostile foreign agent. Pingvin's words are at best inciting domestic political violence and at worst borderline treason.
pingvin isn't a American.

There is definitely the Iowa effect in rural Wisconsin. I suspect Ron kind will be in deep trouble very soon.
What utter nonsense.
