Genuinely disturbing.

Brie Wilcox, a Canadian student, views the race differently than most Americans.

“The things I see and hear just seem absurd,” she said. “Nothing seems accurate of what is actually going to happen. Our (Canadian) elections for prime minister are so short.”

Your analysis, as usual, was great, but Brie probably had the most funny/poignant/sad line in the article.

Especially because Canadians don't really elect a prime minister. Only the people of Papineau elected Trudeau last fall.

Tongue

Now that's a short election, isn't it? Tongue

Anti-Corruption

looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool

(I mean, the idea that he also seriously supports universal healthcare or any other policy to uplift the working class is ludicrous too, but to take Trump's word on corruption... wow)

Yeah, I'm sure that Lincoln would pick Ronald "Gave a speech about States' Rights in Philadelphia, MS" Reagan as his running mate. Roll Eyes

I mean he's probably the best republican apart from Kasich. Supporting the working class and the poor of one race to the exclusion of others is better than supporting the working class of no race and being an elitist.

How in all holy f**king hell does Donald Trump "support" the working class in any meaningful way?

Nepal Ammended it's constitution to give further rights through proportional representation to Madheshi and other ethnic minorities, Madheshi's aren't backing down until they get their own (ethnic) state.

Is it geographically possible to carve out a homogeneously (say, >80%) Madheshi State?

If this thread's goal was to lament that the forum is becoming too prudish, so far it's doing a great job proving the opposite. Cheesy
90  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Counter-Reformation vs. Magisterial Reformation vs. Radical Reformation on: January 30, 2016, 04:52:13 pm
Magisterial.

A prominent historian made the case that counter-reformation is the root cause of Italy's cultural, social and political decline in the 16th century, from which it has never recovered.

Which one? Can you link to a book about it? I'd like to read about it.

I don't know if the book has been translated in English, but here is the reference:

http://www.amazon.com/Lidentita-italiana-Italian-Edition-Ernesto/dp/8815066128

It deals with many complex issues in a rather succinct way, so there might be other works that focus more sharply on this specific topic, but it was a very interesting read to me. Galli Della Loggia's ideological perspective is, roughly speaking, the Statist right (a variant of gaullism, if you will), which means that both you and me have elements of agreement and disagreement with it. He does have a lot of ill to say about each of 19th century liberalism, fascism, communism and Christian democracy.

Further proof that Bernie is a FF and these sexist clowns would be better off joining Trump's campaign.

The forum hasn't really turned right on social issues, RFayette's rants aside. It somewhat has on economics (but it's nowhere near as bad as it was in 2010-2011), but the only issue it has taken a disgusting hard-right turn is immigration and multiculturalism-related stuff.
95  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Could cocaine and khat be legalized in another 50 years? on: January 29, 2016, 09:56:29 pm
LOL@Tony.

Don't you actually oppose legalize even MARIJUANA?

I'm fine with personal consumption and (obviously) medical use. I don't think it should be sold for profit. For the record, I'd say the same about cigarettes.

So basically you want it to be legal to buy and use but have the only way to buy it via an illegal black market?

Yeah, Antonio, this...this isn't a sensible position.

Yeah, I see that now. This is not an issue I care much about, beyond its tragic repercussions on mass incarceration.

FTR, what I was thinking about was people growing their own.

I've expressed my thoughts on them previously. Since I don't want to cause another uproar, I'll leave it there.

I thought I had enough pro-woman bona fides on the forum for it to be relatively evident that I didn't approve of the skulduggery.

Sure.

I'm beginning to reconsider presenting myself as transgender/a woman, primarily for religious reasons.

Combining something that's both anti-women (linking gender presentation to religious prerequisites) and an example of personal 'skulduggery' (ex-trans bull) in one then I think you've burned that card.

Nathan.

I really don't want to discuss this here, but if you consider yourself an advocate for transgender rights, then you shouldn't lecture people on what their "true" gender identity is.

This prison reform stuff needs a name. Let's call it Orange Lives Matter.

Nah, sounds too Boehner-y.
