He's right, and he's quite sufferable actually.
77  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: HuffPo blogger: Hillary's NY win is irrelevant on: April 21, 2016, 06:18:36 pm
So if Hillary doesn't get 2,383 in pledged, it's an "open convention" Huh

Was 2008 an open convention?
78  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Cruz: Trump wants big burly men in the bathroom with little girls on: April 21, 2016, 06:12:21 pm
He isn't wrong, go to the bathroom which you have the genitals for not what you want.

So if you get penile cancer and have to have it removed, you'll start going to the ladies' room even though you're (obviously) still a man?
79  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which Democratic Senators/Representatives/Governors have NOT endorsed yet? on: April 16, 2016, 02:02:45 pm
Where's a list of who's endorsed whom?

80  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: After NY, Cruz will likely join the Kasich club on: April 16, 2016, 01:42:47 pm
And if it does go to a 2nd ballot, why should Cruz get it?

Because he's completely dominated the delegate selection process?
Trump has completely dominated the primary process; why shouldn't he get it?

Because he hasn't? He's just gotten a bunch of weak pluralities.

He's still done way better than Cruz...
81  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What would the Dem primary look like now if E. Warren had run instead of Bernie? on: April 15, 2016, 11:38:26 am
She would have done much worse than Sanders.

This. Like it or not, a lot of Sanders' support is coming from men who won't vote for a woman.
82  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Martin o Malley says that Clinton should release the GS Transcripts on: April 15, 2016, 06:54:53 am
Let's be honest, no Hillary supporter expected her to struggle this much in the primary.

Congrats on your moral victory.
83  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Martin o Malley says that Clinton should release the GS Transcripts on: April 14, 2016, 11:21:48 pm
Oh yeah, that guy...
84  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who won? on: April 14, 2016, 11:09:03 pm
It would have been pretty close, but she annihilated him so hard on guns that it became a solid Hillary win.
85  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: CNN Brooklyn, NY Democratic debate @9pm ET **live commentary thread** on: April 14, 2016, 08:04:05 pm
Surely the crowd cheering is just an opening-statements-only thing? I hope...
86  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Paul Ryan on: April 10, 2016, 11:44:21 am
Switching to Ryan would be a smart move for the Republican elites. Obviously he loses to Hillary, but it's a tactical surrender that keeps them in control of the party. Trump and Cruz lose by bigger margins, drag Congress down with them, and fundamentally change the party.
87  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Sanders: Black voters don't matter on: April 10, 2016, 11:43:03 am
He may not have done it on purpose, but of course "The South" is a racial dogwhistle when discussing Democratic primaries. What else differentiates Southern voters from non-Southern ones?
88  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton was better at "being a candidate" in 2008. Agree or disagree? on: April 08, 2016, 02:07:49 pm
I strongly disagree, and apparently America does too.
89  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bill Clinton: BLM is defending murderers and drug dealers on: April 07, 2016, 08:10:38 pm
Oh my god Naso, stop. You're scaring Democrats off from defending Bill here.

Great show. The guy playing Darden was fantastic, and really the whole cast was. I even like Travolta.

New York and Vermont delcare war on Mississippi - bans official travel to there.

http://news10.com/2016/04/06/new-york-vermont-ban-official-travel-to-mississippi-over-lgbt-law/


That's unacceptable and dickish. The last thing we need is for the rest of America to turn their backs on us.

The art museum in Jackson had to cancel some big event there because the artist is a government employee in New York and has been forbidden to travel here. I can assure you the art museum and its patrons aren't discriminating against gays.

On the other hand, the people who support this law are proud that Yankee liberals aren't coming down here. These gotcha travel bans are having the opposite intended effect.
92  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Serial - Who killed Hae? on: April 06, 2016, 09:45:19 pm
Obviously I'm way late to the party here, but on a whim I decided to download this podcast and listen through it over the past week.

I have to lean to Adnan being guilty as the most reasonable explanation. I don't necessarily believe Jay's story 100%, but he did know where Hae's car was hidden, and the cell phone records seem to back up his story about Adnan (or at least the phone) being in Leakin Park when Jay says he was. That's not proof, but it just seems like the simplest and most likely solution to me.

However, the fact that he was convicted without any physical evidence is fishy to me and I probably would have voted to acquit. The fact that his lawyer failed to bring an alibi witness to the stand, or that they could have tested Hae's body for DNA but failed to, are shameful.
93  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rate a Ryan vs. Clinton race on: April 06, 2016, 03:49:09 pm
Safe D. Nomination of Ryan is an intentional tactical surrender by Republicans.
94  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trevor Noah calls out the DNC Chair for "c**kblocking" Bernie Sanders. on: April 05, 2016, 08:19:57 pm
So in summary, the reason Sanders people think DWS is corrupt and helping Clinton is because she didn't get rid of superdelegates, which had been around for 44 years before this cycle?

Not so much that. More like the fact that there were only six debates.

Six debates is more than enough. How many times do you think should the general election candidates debate?

What new information turns up in the 7th, 8th, 9th, etc., debates?
95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why DID Donald Clean Sweep Dixie? on: April 03, 2016, 04:55:42 pm
Because Trump is likable and Cruz is an unbearable prick?
96  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bernie wins Clark county NV convention vote on: April 02, 2016, 07:46:08 pm
If it were Hillary taking away delegates that Bernie rightfully won, the Sandernistas would be shrieking right now...

Bernie didn't take away anything. National delegates aren't determined until the final round of caucuses, which this is not.

You can cling to your technicalities all you want when it's Bernie, but we all know that you would be the Ringleader of the Venom if the tables were turned.

98  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Opinion of Bernie's Income Tax Plan? on: April 02, 2016, 04:55:43 pm
So how does Bernie's tax structure change when his Medicaid For All plan doesn't pass? Still pretty big, since he can't weave in all of the savings we'll see from that personally, or that our employers will supposedly pass on to us?
99  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Opinion of Bernie's Income Tax Plan? on: April 02, 2016, 01:50:37 pm
I think it was the Upshot who had an app where you enter in your income and it tells you how your tax burden changes under each candidate.

Under Hillary's plan, I'd pay $200 more. No big deal at all. Under Bernie's plan, I'd pay over $14,000 more (?!) WTF, Bernie?!?! I'm nowhere close to being rich. I don't have an extra $14,000 laying around!

I would still vote for Bernie if he were somehow the nominee because I'm still loyal a Democrat above all and Trump is horrendous, but talk about an enthusiasm zapper...


Edit: It was Vox, not Upshot:  http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2016/3/25/11293258/tax-plan-calculator-2016

Vox's numbers are complete and utter bs.

OK I guess? If you have some supporting evidence, I'll take a look, but I'm going to believe a legitimate national news source over a Sanders supporter on a message board, no offense of course.

Are you including "what I'd save in health insurance costs" in your figure?
