He's a solid conservative... just because he didn't rule against a law in a case the SCOTUS never should have taken up in the first place (because the only Appeals court decision against the law had been vacated, so there was no Circuit Court split on the issue), doesn't mean he doesn't consistently line up on the conservative side.

This.

I knew he was a goddamn idiot, but christ. He can't even hold his own against a 7-year-old?! This guy is the governor of a state? My God.

But he's against those greedy teacher's unions, so that's good! Smiley

Another celebration of Republican mediocrity. News at 11.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What percentage of the Hispanic/Asian/Black/ vote will Republicans get this turn on: June 28, 2015, 09:48:57 pm
One problem for the Dems with some Asians, that is beginning to bite, is that some Asians think affirmative action is screwing them out of slots in public universities.

Which is unfortunate, because that's not true.
7  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Hate to say it, but I told you so on: June 27, 2015, 12:03:46 pm
This is truly mean spirited and dumb. Sore loser grandstanding.

No he's endearing himself to the 2016 Republican primary base.
8  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Now that gay marriage has passed should we ban straight marriage ASAP? on: June 27, 2015, 12:02:52 pm
We should not only ban straight marriage, we should retroactively declare all of the straight marriages that have already happened unconstitutional and make it a capital offense to be married to a person of the opposite sex.

The homosexualist agenda is unstoppable!

Pro-choice (not a wishy-washy Moderate Hero on women's basic rights).

Entertaining.

Neo-Confederate = Fake Democrat

Not really, given that the Democrats were the party of the original Confederates

Ah true. Muh "big tent"
12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Worse Supreme Court Justice on: June 27, 2015, 11:56:03 am
Thomas is extremely intelligent, regardless of how "evil" you think he is.

Same with Scalia.
13  General Politics / Economics / Re: How economists think differently from other humans on: June 27, 2015, 11:55:03 am
It's confusing to me why some still think saying HEY PEOPLE AREN'T PURELY RATIONAL! is some kind of devastating blow to the field.

We still live in the mid-19th century or something.

Protect free speech!

Even Nazis have something to contribute!  Smiley

But seriously, this thread is awful.

Congrats to our LGBT posters and all members of the LGBT community. This is really their victory, even if it makes America  in general look good (finally Tongue ).

18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Prior to the ruling, only a handful of Congressional Republicans were in favor on: June 27, 2015, 11:42:39 am
Well to be fair, many of the voters in their districts are still bravely going against the grain.

It's Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve!
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Does the crowded primary work to the GOP's disadvantage? on: June 25, 2015, 08:16:40 pm
The reason I ask is that, before we crown Queen Hillary, we must remember that the Republican Clown Car of 2012 was every bit as unintentionally hilarious and not-to-be-taken seriously as the current one. Yet Anyone-But-Romney  turned into Romney/Ryan improving on McCain/Palin's performance in 2008- to the tune of 47% (heh) of the overall vote.

At this early stage in the game, most voters aren't even paying attention to the race. Insert cliche about the general election having higher turnout than the primaries here, etc. And once the Republicans settle on a candidate, you can bet your Dave Leip's Election Atlas subscription that Republicans and their allies in the media* will invest a lot (literally and figuratively) into that person - whomever it may be.

So yeah...don't act like Hillary's epic landslide election is preordained or anything.

*not saying that the media is necessarily pro-Republican. But at this point, there's no denying that Fox News, talk radio, and the conservative end of the blogosphere have a lot of influence on the Republican part of the electorate.

^You do realize that he's been dead for nearly 50 years, yes?
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 41% of Americans think dinosaurs and humans lived at same time on: June 25, 2015, 05:01:38 pm
Is this another cringe thread where Atlas posters pat themselves on the back?

"LOL look at how stupid most people are!!!!"

25  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Will Obama have to call in the National Guard to enforce the gay marriage ruling? on: June 22, 2015, 08:09:31 pm
No. This isn't the 1950s. The Supreme Court is behind public opinion on this issue anyway.
