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.

Greatest governor in nation being smeared by leftist radicals. Sad.

shaddup, troll.

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.

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.
82  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Which Romance language would you rather learn? on: July 02, 2015, 05:08:22 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?

Maine

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

In the primaries, UT of course.

CCSF.

If he's resorted to harassing posters via PM, that definitely is grounds for banning.

Nope. Unless he makes a sock account, the moderators here don't give a shit.

Whereas mods on AAD don't give a $hit, period. Or I forget: Are we wantonly banning too many people, or cravenly not banning enough? It's tough remembering which you are arguing on any given day.

And ftr, be a tad more judicious (i.e. accurate) in use of the all-encompassing terms "mods".

(Which reminds me, I have a banning petition to sign in another thread.....)

The point of AAD is that it is supposed to be lassiez-faire outside of significant personal attacks. That being said, they'd ban CCSF right away if he tried to sign up there.

no, ccsf has in fact been gracing us at aad with his posts for almost a week now and there's no movement to ban him. Smiley

True, the AAD mods are only campaigning for him to be banned here. dfuq? Huh

I'd say "Good, keep him", but I'll have to put up with him there now. Sad

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?
90  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Petition to ban CountryClassSF on: July 02, 2015, 04:23:50 pm
He does not deserve to be banned. Believe it or not, having terrible opinions does not warrant a ban (directed at the "tolerant" lefties). He has not been hateful or threatened anyone.

As much as CCSF would like to play martyr and claim otherwise, this has zilch to do with persecution of outspoken social conservatism. Doubt that? See exhibit A: The total absence of people in or out of the mod cave calling for JCL's banishment.

This has everything and then some to do with trolling. Or as others succinctly put it:
 
This guy is obviously an attention whore not interested in discussion but merely provoking people to react.

x Kalwejt

The fact he has been effectively outed (excuse the pun) as, not the rare anti-SSM gay, but an extreme troll playing gay for grins (at least to anyone with an ounce of both brains and critical analysis), and has used the BS persona as an integral part of his trolling the Forum, puts him well beyond the pale of this community. Diversity, yes; a-hole trolls, no.

I rarely sign these petitions, as I generally oppose bannings in all but rarest circumstances (let alone permabans). But in this case:

93  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Current status of SSM in the holdout states (MAP) on: July 02, 2015, 01:35:50 pm
Kansas should be orange as the state government is still refusing to recognize the issued licenses as valid.

It's a grey area, but the licenses are being issued and as best I can tell, their validity is not being questioned. What is the current bugaboo is that driver license name changes and tax return filings are still in limbo because they're "assessing the situation". I'll consider changing it to orange, however.

I concur with Wulfric. Besides, it'll make the map more interestiing. Tongue

"I don't see the appeal of it, so it should be banned!"

I'm surprised BRTD isn't saying heavy metal should be banned.

Obviously banning heavy metal would be quite problematic, but so is the music itself with the frequent promotion of Neo-Nazism and brutal misogyny, and in causing teen suicides.

My god. You've LITERALLY gone to Jerry Falwell levels of fantasia in your demonizing heavy metal.

If you're a grown man, and not a whining baby, you should be able to handle this kind of stuff. 

People historically have not responded well to being dispossessed of their culture. It's not an issue of maturity.

When you're culture conflicts with the core values of the country you're living in, its time to re-examine your belief system.

Or perhaps re-examine what truly are the core values of your country, vs. what's just cultural window-dressing.
