If he's running for office, what he shares openly is far more a hindrance than his "secret" past.

But, if he aware of that?

IMO, as I said in another thread today, someone from Forum making public anything Mike Notnaso posts in an effort to effect his real world life--including trying to f$#k with a career move into politics--would be the height of abuse of the Forum' ethos, and would warrant immediate irrevocable banning.

Making fun of him because of this idiocy, or some opponent digging it up because he was dumb enough to use his name here, is all legit.

George C. Scott's 1984 version. I bought it on Cd to watch every year.

I'm not a fan of musical movies, but the 1969 version, 'Scrooge!" (which I also own on CD) is awesome.

I reluctantly started to watch the 2009 animated version last night with the wife. We were interupted early on, but it was surprisingly good. We'll watch the rest this weekend.

Nah.

It happens regularly.

But are there any examples? Other than jmfcst, who pretty clearly wasn't banned for being a conservative...

Short answer: No

Akin to many other "forum heroes" in his utter horribleness.
81  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: If a poster on this forum ran in real life for public office.......... on: December 05, 2014, 10:25:22 am
No, but sadly there are probably quite a few posters here who would.


This. Too many people would consider doing so, despite the effect it would have on the poster's career, as a great joke. we don't have any true hardcore racist/anti-semetic/violence-advocating idiots here (or at least those that aren't quickly banned) that would truly warrant disclosure for the public good.

Using the Forum to screw with someone in real life is intolerable. Like using posts here to mess with someone's job or marriage.

Fwiw, I would vociferously advocate for immediate permenant ban of anyone doing so.
82  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rand Paul blames Garner's death on cigarette taxes on: December 05, 2014, 09:51:40 am
People saying "not wrong." Can you envision a world where NY has a $5.85 tax on cigarettes, and police enforce that law without using violence or killing people who break it? Yes? The reason Paul is wrong is because he's focusing on the tax, not the violence.

The fact that Paul is literally correct that without the tax, this specific incident would not have taken place is wholly irrelevant to the problem of people dying needlessly in incidents with the police.

Also, he's being a senator from Kentucky here, not a thought leader.

And Gravis wins the thread.

The "Rand is right" (partially or otherwise) range from pedantic to brain damaged. "Michael Garner died because of high cigarette taxes"?!? Please. Name a law. Any law. Enforcement carries the risk of confrontation. It is the execution and--most importantly--the oversight of such execution that truly governs the risk of deaths to people like Garner. NOT whether cigarettes are an extra buck or three per pack in the Big Apple.
83  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Racial divide on Ferguson indictment is almost identical to 2014 House vote on: December 05, 2014, 09:30:39 am
So Democrats are rioting and burning down their own commercial districts and economic opportunities. Tell us something we didn't already know.

Ferguson is a microcosm. Democratic voters can only rage, and give world-class amateur productions of Les Miserable. Republicans sit in the audience with their popcorn buckets and evaluate the individual performances.

Sharpton could use some acting lessons, imo.

99% of the rioting vandals arern't registered voters.


Your 'politics' really are just a pretext for fundamental character flaws.

Please stop making grotesque posts which embarrass the rest of blue avatars.
84  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you own any Political Yard Signs? on: December 01, 2014, 09:56:38 am
None. Ironically, even though I was in charge of distributing Kasich signs in my county, my housing development's covenant prohibits political lawn signs.

I think people are mean to poor solarstorm. I mean, the guy is ... eccentric; but he's not a nazi or a spambot.

Chris Redfern also lost. I suppose blind partisan hackishness eventually catches up to a man.

The person who beat him is under investigation for burglary, if I'm not mistaken.

Correct.

I want to apologize to the Forum: I said McConnell would win by 6-8%. He won by 15%.

Accepted, but watch yourself.
90  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: OH-Gov: Fitzgerald in on: November 06, 2014, 10:37:49 am
How bad was it for Fitzgerald Tuesday? He lost his OWN PRECINCT!

Apparently his neighbors don't like the idea of a chronically unlicensed driver cruising their streets. Wink

"Help"? Certainly.

"Save her"? No way.
92  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Is Scott Brown's political career finally over? on: November 05, 2014, 01:40:40 am
He would still be in the Senate if he ran against Markey in 2013. Gabriel Gomez came within single digits. And he wouldn't've lost in this climate, either. And if we'd gotten someone better to run against Jeanne Shaheen -- Dan Innis and Chris Sununu come to mind -- we might have that one as well by now. It's clear the "carpetbagger" line of attack stuck, and Shaheen still barely won.

You know, considering the results tonight (particularly ones like MA-Gov and MD-Gov) I'm half convinced he'd be in the Senate had he run against Markey in 2014.

Nah, Markey still would've been safe. Vosem is probably right though.
93  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Does Atlas Forum owe Politico an apology? on: November 05, 2014, 01:37:30 am
Politico's promotion of Gilespie had more to do with establishment back-scratching than any insight into how the race would turn out.

This x 100. Hence option 2.
94  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Official GOP Gloating Thread. on: November 05, 2014, 01:34:52 am
No gloating, we need to be better than that.  This was a hard fought race and kicking dirt in Democrats eyes is unnecessary.
95  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 05, 2014, 01:31:19 am
I think my favorite part of the night quickly became the humbling of the Nerd Herd around here. You know, the people that act like Mark Warner is literally God-like. What an absolute joke of a candidate to only beat Gillespie by 1%. I wouldn't even deliver a victory speech if I were him. I'd be too embarrassed.

And how close did you predict Gillespie would come? Or ever once opine anything prior to the last two weeks indicating Warner wouldn't win easily?

Welcome to the herd.
96  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 11:26:25 pm
Ernst up 50-46 with 60% in.  They need to call this race so I can go to bed...

It's called for Ernst, Bushie. You can go get your daily recommended 13 hours of beauty sleep now.
97  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: 2014 US Congressional Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 11:23:31 pm
Tonight is brutal. Just brutal. I mean, we can't "win" every election but are there ANY bright spots for us tonight?
We knocked off an incumbent GOP governor in PA. Another in KS may drop very soon. Also picked up a Republican district in Florida.

Brownback is winning.
98  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2014 US Gubernatorial Election Results on: November 04, 2014, 11:21:26 pm
And Brownback up over 10k/1.5% with over 70% in.

I feel felicitations and salutations are in order, Phillip.

(i.e. CONGRATS PHIL!!)

If this doesn't capture the essence of the Ohio Democratic Party tonight (who were blanked across the board in every race including judicials):

Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern is stepping down as party chair, having been defeated for re-election for state representative by, per the Mansfield News-Journal, "A political newcomer being investigated in connection with a burglary"  Shocked

I'm just whistling past this thread...

Of course you would, as a Republican from Pennsylvania Roll Eyes.
