Thank you AD, Deus and SPC for reminding me why Libertarianism is such a joke.

One of the worst US politicians in history.

Of course not, but being 'nice' shouldn't be confused with being a pushover or not being ambitious or determined.

Sure, but being a bit shy/awkward/humble/unassertive/quiet doesn't make someone a pushover either.

With all those together... I would say it might.

These are traits that generally go together. And at a moderate level, they aren't flaws.

Well, awkwardness and unassertiveness certainly aren't positive character traits. I'm not sure how shy, awkward unassertiveness doesn't lend itself to being a pushover.

I guess you're right, but the opposite flaws (overconfidence and overassertiveness) are much, much worse IMO.

At least my points are more than just "lol COMMUNISM ROCKS"

Not really, no. They're just a different kind of bad.

Garfield and Hayes. Voted Garfield.

535 members is about 235 too many

Not really. In my opinion it's still under representing the country.

It's about 465 too few, really.

What is the link to color states that way? Thanks.

We just use the Electoral College calculator.

Snowstalker, at some point do you just get tired of making sh**tty posts?

Now you see how we feel every time you post.

A tad misleading. The type of conditional contract mentioned (with back payment clauses) are generally legal for any worker, irrespective of nationality.

And it should be illegal irrespective of nationality.

They can go somewhere else if they don't like it.



kthxbye

Just saw it today. It was fun, I had a good time. It's not amazing or anything, but there were a lot of funny moments. Colin Firth is great, as usual. The main character wasn't interesting, but he wasn't too annoying either. The bad guy was hilarious, and kinda creative in his style and attitude (BTW, does he also have a lisp in the original version? He had one in the dub and that worked fine). I didn't mind the violence, since it's surreal enough to be beyond the reach of emotion, kind of like a Tarantino movie. The Church scene among the best, but certainly not something to be shocked about (and the preacher's speech before gave me a few laughs). On the other hand, the final "fireworks" scene was hilarious. Best mass killing ever! Cheesy And I like the subplot about the Swedish PM. What's the name they give him, Martin Lindstrom or something like that? Tongue

Begich, Hagan, Udall and Grimes (just to oust the Turtle).

^Ouch. Devastating blow to team gold/white. We get Kanye West. Team gold/white gets a bunch of people that aren't Kanye West.

You also get Justin Bieber though, so we're even.

Both counties in those Republican strongholds have almost always voted Democrat in statewide races since 1992.

To some extent, yes - and I blame patriarchy for that. The norms of masculinity tend to reward aggressiveness and "toughness".

I'll trust the former to decide policy goals and the latter to put them into practice.

Few current national leaders did more damage than him.

No, because no US politician has the guts to seriously call him out for his bullsh*t.

Strikingly, this appears to be almost entirely uncorrelated with Congress' productivity.
