So that's why Inks gets so worked up about anti-pro-heterosexual rhetoric...

Do neither of you know what "ultra-leftism" means? It doesn't just mean "very left-wing".

Does it have something to do with dialectical materialism?

Kill yourself.

My my, someone's in a mood tonight...

Haha, looks like he deleted the post.

A shining example of self-restraint/personal responsibility.

The glorious right-wing economy minister wants to gut unemployment insurance (this is the same rich moron who said that workers in some plant were 'illiterates'): http://www.lemonde.fr/politique/article/2014/10/12/macron-relance-le-debat-de-la-reforme-de-l-assurance-chomage_4504807_823448.html

Can this government be any more of a joke?

A shame the "frondeurs" just abstained Sad

Well, if they had voted against and the clown show had lost, then we would be having snap elections which would inevitably result in a cohabitation with the other clown show, the UMP.

That could actually be better in some ways.

What a dumb question. If Mitch McConnell had a D next to his name, he would have been a crucial ally to Obama, rather than the evil mastermind that managed to stall most of his agenda. So obviously there would be no problem at all.

This will especially be the case if he grows some balls and puts boots on the ground in Iraq to fight and destroy ISIS.

Yes, he really needs to do that. If ISIS keeps taking over the Middle East while we do nothing, Obama's legacy will be seriously tarnished.

@Antonio: Pretty sure I could pick out a random two years from Clinton that did just as much.

I'm pretty sure you can't.

Anything interesting happen?

Labor reform passed in the Senate in a confidence vote, Renzi is relieved, Berlusconi and Grillo make their usual antics... So no, nothing worthwhile.

I highly doubt that.

A poll showing an Ernst lead is being celebrated as a Braley victory why?

The last Selzer poll had her up 6, so clearly things have improved somewhat.

The poll had Obama's approval at 45%. They probably retracted it because it is clearly a bad sample.

Retracting polls because you don't like their results is just plain wrong. There is no excuse.

Facts didn't like the results either: there's no way Obama is at 45% approval in Kansas. He's lucky to have that rating in PA right now!

That's not how polling works.

Ah, I understand. But disputing other findings in polls is still enough reason to throw them out, right?

No, a poll should never been thrown out because of what its results show. It can be thrown out because it uses a crappy methodology or because it was done on behalf of a partisan cause, but disregarding a polls because its results "don't look right" is inherently stupid.

I think we are misunderstanding each other, my friend. I'm not saying the President's (inaccurate) approval rating per this poll is a reason to exclude it from the database but I do think it's further proof that the poll is junk. 

I'm not claiming the opposite. Actually, I doubt anyone on the forum actually thinks Orman is leading by 12. Still, just like we included those crappy polls that showed Brown ahead in NH, we should include this one.

Romney named one of his kids "Tagg", while Palin gave her kids names like "Track" and "Trig".

What would happen if the two families married into each other?  Would we get kids with names like Frugg and Twigg?


Trick? Trag? Tack?

Braley leads Ernst 56-38 among early voters, who are 15% of sample.

Dominating! Cheesy
96  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of mittromneysons.com on: October 12, 2014, 05:20:48 am
Is Tagg Romney's name supposed to be a subtle reference to the Ayn Rand heroine Dagny Taggart? I wouldn't put that past ol' Mittens.

Quote
After the 19th century conversion of major Wolof kingdoms to Islam, the tagg, or ode song in Wolof, was reused in an Islamic Nasheed tradition—an important integration of pre-Islamic style into the new Muslim paradigm.[1]

So Mitt Romney is a Muslim Mormon Objectivist?

Yeah, Obama's first two years saw more progress in US public policy than any other two-year period since the 1970s at least. Had the dems kept filibuster-proof majorities throughout his presidency, he would probably be rated as one of the best Presidents in history.

Just a heads up that Mark Kirk lives in Highland Park in Lake County, which means he'd be in the Chicago state.

Yeah I know, but he was born in Champaign and lived in downstate IL up till college (he transferred to Cornell afterwards). If he wanted to seek a political career, he'd be quite a fool to move to Chicago State, where his opportunities would be extremely limited. I'd say he'd be most likely to stay in his native State. But anyway, if it wasn't Kirk, it could have been Patrick Hughes instead.
