No.

Still terrible.

Ideally? No guns, no weed.

Also lol.

Iran easily (sane).

Haven't we had a dozen polls on him already?
81  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you vote on Trumpcare? on: June 26, 2017, 02:20:25 pm
No (has a conscience)
82  General Politics / Economics / Re: More evidence on the advantages of universal benefits (cc: Torie) on: June 26, 2017, 02:10:59 pm
This is a well-established finding, yes.

It certainly is an ideological debate whether we should provide these benefits, but the point is, one side is morally right and the other is wrong.
83  General Politics / Economics / Re: The Financial Times says capitalism has outgrown democracy. on: June 26, 2017, 02:06:47 pm
It's not wrong.

The question is, which of the two will humanity choose?
84  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Mitch McConnell Refused to Meet With Group That Funded His Polio Recovery on: June 26, 2017, 01:56:50 pm
Mitch McConnell is a completely hollow man
85  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why big business keeps winning at the Supreme Court on: June 26, 2017, 01:52:00 pm
Because contrary to poor people, rich people actually have class consciousness and solidarity.
86  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: At what point does a senator become entrenched/untouchable? on: June 26, 2017, 01:49:58 pm
It really depends on the Senator. Feingold won three times and still went down in 2010. Meanwhile Franken survived in the even worse cycle of 2014 despite barely scraping by in 2008.
87  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: California Senate passes single-payer health care plan on: June 26, 2017, 01:44:36 pm
CA House Speaker killed it.  It will not be considered this year.

Useless fcking cuck.

It's not necessarily dead, but I agree with your sentiment. The Assembly won't even try to work on the bill. Unfortunately, the Senate bill was incomplete. It passed without a funding mechanism, among other issues. With that said, if Speaker Rendon was serious about working on the bill and passing single-payer healthcare, he would have sent the bill to a different committee, such as perhaps the Health Committee. If anything, I think the Senate needs to come up with a complete bill and force it on the Assembly.

Yeah. If the Democrats really are the party of muh policy wonks and technical expertise, this is the time to prove it by hashing out a feasible plan.

Not too bad, I guess.

Brace yourselves...
90  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of northeastern France on: June 26, 2017, 01:52:21 am
Seriously, this thread is ridiculous. People just saw a strip of areas on the NYT that seemed to vote similarly and concluded that it must be similar, but IT'S NOT.
91  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of northeastern France on: June 26, 2017, 01:51:18 am
Definitely a Freedom Area

You do know it voted Mitterand/Jospin/Royal/Hollande, right?

That all depends on how you define "northeastern France". Which, again, is not a coherent entity in any way, shape or form.
92  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Hawks And Doves on: June 26, 2017, 01:47:06 am
It's not a particularly useful way of distinguishing foreign policies.

This. I'm basically a Wilsonian internationalist hack tbh.
93  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Schumer - Can't blame others for your own loss, need a new bold economic message on: June 26, 2017, 01:33:58 am
Schumer is an establishment hack, of course, but contrary to many Democratic establishment hacks he seems to have seen the writing on the wall and understood that doubling down on the "nice suburban moderates Smiley Smiley Smiley" strategy is suicidal. If only other Dem leaders had as much sense...
94  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: The last movie you've seen thread 2016 on: June 26, 2017, 12:15:14 am
Wonder Woman: I can't believe DC finally made a good movie! And honestly, if I wanted any DC movie to be good, it was definitely this one. It's so refreshing to finally see a superhero movie with a female lead that isn't shamelessly exploitive or sexist and actually focuses on telling a compelling story. It has its share of problems of course, but it's still a damn good movie and exceeded all my expectations. I really hope other directors of DC movies will take a clue.

The Departed: It's a very well-crafted movie with absolutely brilliant suspense, but the ending is way too nihilistic for my tastes. That was a real letdown.

what a nerd
Psssh. What a nerd.

Huh
96  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Italian Elections and Politics 2017: Revenge of the Renzi on: June 25, 2017, 07:53:25 pm
Result of Abruzzo is very impressive.  The Center-Right bloc overcame a 47.1 to 35.8 first round lead to win in the second round. 

Votes for the center-left candidate decreased between the two rounds. This is an obvious case of massive abstention screwing up the results.

Well this is bad.

Best poster.

Has anyone snarkily said "What about San Francisco?" yet?

I was to San Francisco last Thursday. Rainbow flags everywhere! Cheesy
