Vermont.

12 (the median age of internet libertarians).

46.5 (less against Hillary).

Fairfield County, Ohio

Was the above number given for me Badger when I was a Pub, or a Dem? Smiley

Lol! As a pub, actually. Probably way too high.

I would want Sanchez as roommate for the first 90 minutes of that concert. After 5 hours I'd have to get Murica as a new roommate once Sanchez tragically "fell" out the window.
5  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which Romance language would you rather learn? on: July 03, 2015, 10:45:28 pm
Latin, by far. I already know Italian and French.

<mega-facepalm>

why not a language that, you know, people actually speak in real life? Tongue

Maybe the knowledge of Latin would be helpful on his scholary path? Or maybe he just wants to have fun with the language. It's not like he's limited to learning just one foreign language.

I actually learn Esperanto now. You're probably going to "mega-facepalm" on me, but I needed a new hobby and I have a great time with it, so I don't care.

No, no, not at all. What could be better than spending hours and months of study to learn a language that not one person in a million can understand?

not everything you learn has to be ~useful~ Smiley

True, but I'd settle for "not utterly useless". Especially if we're talking about something that takes as much time as learning a language. OK, taking an hour to learn a couple phrases for ordering a beer or cursing in Latin or Esperanto, cool and fine for $hits and grins. But to spend months to hold a conversation with, well, yourself in a mirror.....? There are a billion other more interesting useless things one could learn in that time.

I don't know who that guy is, but he always seems to come in at at great times and drops bombs like that. Hilarious.

Yeah, only 15 posts and every one of them ranging from good to fricking brilliant.

Literal FF.


Though we disagree on a lot of political issues, his arguments are sound, he's respectful, and actually challenges me to think about my positions and defend them.


He's f-in hilarious to boot

Yep.

de Blasio will not face any "establishment" challenge at this rate.  it's more likely that de Blasio backs a primary challenge to Cuomo than vice versa.

This.

You won't get much argument from the Mod Cave, people. Instead of starting a feel-good petition thread, however, how about sending your concerns to Dave instead as he's the only person who can actually take action on this?

A petition at least has a chance of being noticed soon by someone powerful. We'd be lucky to have Dave reply before the Iowa caucuses.

Your statement misses this exact point: The definition of "someone powerful"--that is anyone who can do squat about this--equals "Dave".

Tbf, I do feel this obsession with him (like caring about him enough to search his posts on some tea bagger site like we're in court or something?) is weird. The obvious compromise would be to confine all CCSF related trolling (on both sides) to some flame war thread. Some of us actually wanted to discuss the consequence and details of the ruling, without a million inane flame wars between CCSF and his "fanbase".

The same goes for any time other posters randomly start poking him on other threads, in some demented attempt to wind him up enough to talk more nonsensical waffle.

You're saying give CCSF his own thread and have him post only there? That's an awful precedent on many many levels.

The precedent was already set with nkpatel.  Tongue

Yeah, with that history I'd just as soon show this dude the door.

I'm not going to apologize for moderating a post suggesting that the death of a well-known person and eight other people was faked as part of vast conspiracy. I don't care that it made the poster look like a insensitive idiot. If I moderated on that basis, I'd agree that I'd be going too far.  I do care that keeping it on this site would have made it look like a haven for insensitive idiots. Stormfront and AAD can have such posts if they want them.

His first post was bad enough that I brought out the tenpointium claws I generally don't use, and other mods started a conversation in the mod cave about whether Nym should make use of his banhammer of justice.

...I'm sorry, did you just compare AAD to Stormfront and Charleston truthers?

That's completely fycking absurd - not to mention the height of excessive hyperbole. And this is coming from someone who would've done the same thing you did.
They're not quite the same.

Not quite the same, then.

Well, that's reassuring.

Paul LePage may be the most mentally unbalanced state chief executive since Earl K. Long (D-LA). But unlike Earl, I doubt LePage is wily enough to escape from a mental hospital and eventually return to power.

Evan Mecham?

Ooh, forgot about him. Yeah, he was "special" too.

Seems to be very impeachable. Even Chris Christie knew that he should not be boasting about such things. This guy is a nut.

Thanks, Cutter.

Thank Michaud's moderate hero campaign.
Thanks anyone who should've known better but idiotically supported LePage anyway. (Looking at you Maxwell).

De Blasio wins reelection relatively easily.

This. The DeBlasio is toast routine is just a TAD premature, but tons overblown.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Obama be remembered in the top 10 of Presidents? on: July 02, 2015, 05:15:41 pm
If one considers gay marriage a noteworthy success, how much credit does Obama really deserve? He appointed Sotomeyor, but any Democrat would've appointed a 5th vote justice. It's like giving Ike credit for the Brown school desegregation decision.

Edit: And he appointed Kagen too.

There's also the point that due to the near extermination of the deer's natural predators, hunting is the only thing that avoids vast overpopulation and starving.

Besides, most animals don't hunt other animals that can "fight back". Predator on predator hunting isn't unheard of, but is rare.

Much like a properly grilled venison steak, preferably with a side of hosenpfeffer.

24  Forum Community / Forum Community Election Match-ups / Re: If the above poster ran for President, what would be his best state? on: July 02, 2015, 05:03:24 pm
Maine

In the general election, Massachusetts or Vermont, like any other Democrat.

In the primaries, UT of course.
