About to wrap the fifth book in my series. Hitting the realization that man's reach exceeds his grasp and the epic scale I've reached may be biting off more than I can chew

So you're actually published? Can you at least share if it is fiction or nonfiction, and what genre?

Atlas tradition is not to speak for yourself in threads like this. Voted HP for that reason.

Come on man. I don't think it's a tradition to not respond at all. Just don't derail the thread into Petty bickering with everybody who dares vote HP. Which in my humble opinion he's done fine thus far here.

And his response here remind my why.

He's been here for about a year and a half and still seems to be genuinely baffled that people can have opinions other than his own. The idea of someone lacking any sort of intellectual curiosity as he does actually kind of bums me out.

That's..... a really good assessment. I've had a hard time putting my finger on exactly what bothers me about him, and I think you hit the nail on the head.

That and I think he reminds me of Jai chin a bit. Tongue

Again though, there are far far worse here than he.

Can someone please without violating the terms of service summarize what Evergreen did to be Perma banned? Also, what did she receive repeated warnings about?

Hey, I'm not leaking anything totally on my own again Tongue

There's nothing to be leaked I assume. Huh It appears what he did was public enough that there are enough Witnesses, so to speak.

I like the idea, but I just wish there was some other way of expressing that......

I'll publicly state to muon thanks again for the invite out for coffee, and my apologies again that my family was wrapped up in festivities from yesterday's wedding of my wife's nephew plus Father's Day today.

I've never been to Chicago outside of O'Hare, but my wife lived there for several years and loves the place. We keep planning an eventual trip there, and once we do I'll be sure to let you know. Smiley

Never volunteered, although I did edit a candidate's wikipedia page earlier this year in exchange for renumeration from a different candidate's campaign.

Well, that's of dubious legality, but unquestionable s*** baggery.
It's par for the course in politics.

In your world perhaps.

Though In fairness, I should have said it was a dubious illegality, because upon further reflection I doubt it is illegal. Though still s*****.
87  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you ever volunteered for a political campaign? on: June 18, 2017, 04:14:16 pm
ive actually consulted on large campaigns in a dozen states.

No s***? For real? Is that your profession? Was this actual consultation for pay? Inquiring minds want to know. Smiley

My thanks to everyone for the nice comments here. :-) I have to even give Santander props for being the only one of 13 HL voters have the courage to at least publicly post their disapproval.

 but then again, I am notoriously confrontational. Grin
89  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senate GOP chucking rules out the window to ram through deficit causing tax cuts on: June 17, 2017, 05:47:47 pm
A VAT is an invitation to a European-style social welfare state. Having a VAT so that one can cut taxes for the super-rich will not be popular in America. The GOP did not establish what sort of economic order America is to have once and for all as the result of the 2016 election.

A VAT is more likely to fall upon the activity of a failing company than is a corporate income tax, A VAT could hasten the demise of shaky businesses. It is a monstrosity to administer.

Not to mention it is grossly regressive

He's just pissed that his fifteen minutes of fame ended with him being punched. Cernovich and company didn't (and shouldn't have) stood up for him,


Maybe because one is is fully supported endorsed by one of the major parties in this country, and the other is literally about 1000 college kids with zero support from the Democratic Party question mark but hey a false equivalency is false. Go figure, it's another Sanchez post

The Democrat party is unable to man up and deal with losing an election....and has a kill list of the people who won the election.

Maybe go back to the old standard of trying to make Donald Trump a 1 term President?

Prove it. Come up with evidence for your awful and just claim you cowardly poltroon.

You absolutely tuck tail the last time I challenged you about this, will you do so again and prove yourself to be a cowardly poultry tamang cowards?

People like you who scream about a war on whites - that's what you have shamefully and literally done - - tend to be nothing more than keyboard combat Warriors. What a shameful excuse of a man you are. I have little doubt you are in fact 12 or simply live in your mother's basement.

^ Montana is too entrenched with libertarians/conservatives to flip. That and the lack of population and big pop cities is why I still have it as R. For Missouri, HC got only 38.14% in 2016 so it is long gone for any Dem for a considerable period of time, even in a landslide. It votes like Appalachia, essentially.

In 2004, Bush beat Kerry in MT 59.1% - 38.6%. Granted, Bush did win the PV nationally that year, but it still shows that that margin doesn't necessarily preclude a future Democratic win there (or a narrow loss)

And in 2008 Obama lost Missouri by a fraction of a percent, and Montana buy something like 3%. If we assume states are going to maintain their Trump level voting patterns, this would be a valid argument. It's not impossible to say that Trump presents something of a realignment, but a wiser bet is that he's a general voting aberration. Yes, Missouri has been trending away from democrats for the last 20 years, where is Texas has been trending towards them for at least the last several, but it is way too early to say Texas is more ready to flip then Missouri.

Likewise, wow Texas hasn't shown much of proclivity to voting Democratic in the last 25 years, Montana in that. Has even at the federal level comma plus a notable Auntie incumbent swing. Of course Republicans are favored there, but it's at least even if not better chance than Texas to flip

Everyone is ignoring the obvious flaw in the referendum, it failed to offer a logical choice: give Puero Rico back to Spain, let them deal with the bankruptcy of their former colony. 
That way we won't have to be politically incorrect and require Puerto Rico to teach English.
Please, for your sake, stay as far away from politics as possible

I assume you're joking, but I don't think Puerto Rico, Spain, or even the American people as a whole want that.

97  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: AL-GOV: Former Chief Justice Sue Bell Cobb announces candidacy on: June 16, 2017, 03:40:33 am
Likely R, but this could become competitive if Ivey gets primaried by some loon like Moore, or if the ghost of Bentley's corruption haunts her into the GE should she win the primary.

It's Alabama. Safe R.

MD was safe D and LA was safe R until they weren't.

My thoughts exactly. Note that both of the seats you mentioned switched hands largely thanks to terrible Democratic and Republican candidates, respectively. I wouldn't put money on Cobb winning this, but there's a non-negligible chance of a walking disaster like Moore or Dawson winning the GOP primary.
Alabama is much less inelastic than MD and LA, even on the state level. Until I see otherwise, this looks like Safe R. Still, Cobb could win in a perfect storm, but the GOP candidate would have to be pretty bad.

More than LA? Not much.

An excellent candidate, though still an uphill battle that will likely require a perfect storm to win.

Cobb will probably clear the field, to the chagrin of Walt Maddox who likely passed over the Senate special for this race.

Has the filing deadline for the special passed?

Probably Tester more than Manchin as the former has thus far avoided serious challengers.

Considering Trump is president and Heller doesn't have a strong challenger yet, no one at this time.

Not the best, but far from the worst, and occasionally good. Not aware of what she was banned for, so I can't intelligently comment on that.
