76  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What are your plans for Valentine's Day? on: February 13, 2015, 05:07:36 pm
Playing Super Smash Bros. I entered an online tournament for the 21st and need to further hone my skills.

I realize you're 'only' like 17, and as a fellow gamer I still sort of get it.

But even then this is the thread's saddest response by far. Sad

It's weird to hear people describe the city where I've had the most fun of my life as "dull".

We don't play Ingress and we don't go to Dudefest.  It's as simple as that.

This x 10. Besides, man, even you have to acknowledge from the standpoint of a 1Dudefest attendee that it's prescence in Indy one weekend a year makes only a passing case for living there the other 51 every year.

Almost surely.

How is Indianapolis dull?

It's the home of DUDE FEST for crying out loud.

You just answered your own question.

(L.D. Smith) Only saw the crappy 2nd 3 movies once (natch), but am tempted to say Samuel L. Jackson's character Mace Windau (or whatever; too tired to wiki it).

Retromike: maybe a Jawa? Grin

New orleans has so much going for it, but the crime and economy are so bad. I'll still give it the edge by a nose, though.

I'm gonna try and hang out with this girl I've been texting, or if that falls through, with my best friend. Either way, I refuse to be alone this year.

Well, that's one way to bring your and your best friend's relationship to "the next level".

Just assume it's his first time and be gentle.

We're visiting my parents in Florida. My folks got the wife and I tickets to the local minor leagur hockey team.

My wife's gift? She readily agreed to go. Smiley

All assuming I can get over this damn stomach flu I came down with yesterday.Sad

Like most college age students, I got hit up by Cutco and Vector. I said ghanks, but no thanks.

Everyone who is against unions should be shot, like right now.

Try it. We shoot back.

OK tough guys. Both of you knock it off NOW.

Imagine Scott Walker: a) allowed Medicaid expansion in his state; and b) had a noteworthy role in the Gingrich-era GOP House leadership (not as important, but fwiw).

There's your answer.
87  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Walker's college problem on: February 12, 2015, 06:26:14 pm
Walker (at the moment) has a bigger Electoral college than college problem.

Well done. Please post more often. Smiley
88  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Walker's college problem on: February 12, 2015, 06:21:43 pm
I would feel much more comfortable about him if he had a JD from Yale or Harvard.

Like ted cruz?

Excellent. Glad to see we are putting our fight against these violent theocrats on a sounder footing.

91  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL: Grayson, DWS (among others) looking at Rubio's seat on: February 11, 2015, 04:46:14 pm
Grayson, just be happy with the fact that you managed to nab a safe House seat and be happy.
I wouldn't call his house seat completely safe.  I could see being ousted in primary in 2018 or 2020 by a good Hispanic candidate.

Could be, but he has to realize his chances of staying employed (somewhere) in Congress remain FAR better staying in his house seat than running for Rubio's seat next year.

93  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Clinton toy with the GOP primary? on: February 10, 2015, 12:28:14 pm
If Clinton carries Iowa and NH then obviously the Dem primary is over.
After that, I'm pretty sure that Democratic voters and groups will try to cause mischief in the Republican primary even if Hillary actively tried to dissuade them.

This. Though because Team Hillary fully understands the potential risks of backlash, such interference will be limited and (at least attempted) behind the scenes, like getting a friendly columnist to write an op-ed how Hillary's preferred opponent is 'underrated' or the like.

Anyone with visions of the Clinton campaign steering millions to Cruz's PAC are dreaming.

The sad end of Corkermania.

Huckabee is trying to out-santorum Santorum.

This. It seems Huckabee isn't running to be elected president so much as for prominence in the Fox News consultant/book sales/speaking tour circuit.
96  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Webb make any "red" states competitive? on: February 10, 2015, 11:22:37 am
He could theoretically have enough crossover appeal to better compete in some purple states like NC and FL, but politics are so polarized now that5 it's limited.

Hillary
Jeb (close 2nd)
Walker
Kasich
Rubio

Hon. Mention: Biden (if Hillary doesn't run, of course)
98  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What % chance would you give Hillary Clinton losing in the Iowa Caucus? on: February 10, 2015, 10:48:39 am
10-15%, probably closer to 10.
99  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would democrats attack Kasich if he gets the nomination? on: February 10, 2015, 10:46:28 am
Considering that Kasich hasn't even mentioned running for president in the last 6 months, this is a moot point.

Whether he sees enough of an opening between Jeb and Walker to actually take the plunge is still an open question, but make no mistake Kasich is very seriously exploring a run.
100  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: AL Supreme Court orders probate judges not to license same sex marriages on: February 09, 2015, 08:41:05 pm
Well if someone was going to play the Governor Wallace role in SSM, it was going to be Roy Moore.

It will be interesting to see how other Republicans react, especially the 2016ers. Who will support him? Obviously Huckabee, and probably Santorum. But what about Rand Paul and Scott Walker? And how will the likes of Jeb Bush avoid having to answer the question

"Blah blah state issue" is probably what we'll hear from them.

Not to mention the SCOTUS will almost surely have taken the issue away by striking down SSM bans before Nov 2016. At which point the Jeb Bush and Scott Walker types will make their expected statement against 'judicial activism', then quickly let the matter drop with an inner sigh of relief.
