1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: WI-Marquette: Feingold (D) with dominant lead against Sen. Johnson (R) on: April 17, 2015, 10:12:58 am
Massive outlier - I'm skeptical. Need more corroborating evidence. But certainly looks good for Feingold at this point.

Ron Johnson's election in 2010 is looking like a massive outlier at this point.
Its more of a electorate thing. feingold wouldn't have lost in 2012 but would have in 2014.

The opposition is a cheery mix of ignorance, hatred, and bigotry. You lost; religious dogma has no place dictating the laws of society.

Which is why the endless need to flaunt in people's faces?

Existing isn't flaunting.

It's really no use, King. He's probably the type of guy that goes to the Castro district to yell at all the "fags" (and then maybe to the bathhouse...)
Countryclasssf claims to be gay so that's almost certain.

Althouse has analyzed this at length.

Yup. Abrahamson's argument makes no sense. Even if she were re-elected as Chief Justice, if the constitution changes, she wouldn't necessarily still hold that position. This reminds me of when Cuyahoga County massively overhauled its county charter and a bunch of sitting office holders had their positions taken away from them. Shirley Abrahamson's power as Chief Justice stems from her being given that power by the Wisconsin State Constitution. After April 29th, the Wisconsin State Constitution will no longer give her that power. That's how amendments work.

I must say though, that the voters of Wisconsin re-elected Bradley and passed that amendment makes no sense. I would love to hear a coherent explanation of someone could vote for Bradley and Yes on the amendment. Yet, both passed, so clearly a lot of people did.
Believing in retention of judges/not caring but thinking the amendment sounds More democratic/feel goody? Though perhaps you don't think that's coherent reasoning. Tongue

8  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Tulsi Gabbard and the BJP on: March 18, 2015, 08:32:18 am
Another ignorant, ethnocentric atlas thread about the BJP. Oh great. Roll Eyes

So, the BJP had been in power for almost a year now. What exactly have they done that would set them apart from other right wing parties like the Republicans? They are different from European conservative parties but they have a fascist base just like the republicans do here in America. The question is do they allow those people to call the shots. Are they? Give me specific examples.

As for me, the BJP has disappointed me but that was to be expected. Can't really expect any political party in India to immediately implement the needed reforms. And they do cater to their idiot base by changing things in textbooks and other sh**t like that. I am not excusing that behavior but Republicans do sh**t like that all the time!!! Why hold the BJP to a different standard?

That a Democrat would endorse a right-wing party in another country is ridiculous.

Did she actually endorse the BJP? She was just against a patronizing, "white man's burden" type non-sensical legislation. Should the Indian parliament call on America to improve its racial situation?
Many of the cosponsors are black.

There is (was?) a black person in Madison, WI?
Surprisingly yes, though Robinson identified as multiracial according to his parents.

Hopefully they dont throw in exemptions for republican leaning unions like they were talking about doing.

20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Polls on Same-Sex Marriage State Laws on: February 19, 2015, 09:06:38 pm
CNN shows 63-36 support for gay marriage nationwide. Republicans only oppose 55-42 (!).

Im sure its a somewhat reasonable proxy for approval, but technically the poll is asking about whether people agree its a constitutional right.

Hughs 2009 survivor got me into these games in the first place so I would for sure participate.

Turnout in the survivor board does seem to be a bit of a issue, you might need to inform people you think might be interested that it will be going on.

I would probably go with the general in Thailand. as for Turkey did hugh use medvedev or putin for Russia? Seems like it would have a been a similar problem.
