Obviously one of the best of all time. A couple years ago, he was my all-time most listened to artists (sumproduct of play counts * track length), and I doubt that's changed.

Not a huge fan of Nebraska (a lot of dull songs on there) or most of his more recent stuff, but that's OK. There's still hours of really, really great material.

Democratic voters like Hillary. They won't be voting third party in any significant number. The same is probably going to be true for whoever the Republicans nominate.

Liberal progressives seriously want to see pastors thrown in jail for life for preaching against same sex marriage

Can you cite a single example of this?


Furthermore, the Bible clearly says no one is born gay. 

I've never even heard that in Mississippi. Which verse are you referring to?
79  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Politico: Skyrocketing Medicaid signups stir Obamacare fights on: May 19, 2015, 07:14:32 pm
Hasn't it been demonstrated conclusively that expanding Medicaid is positive cash flow for the states that do it, thanks to the spark it gives the doctor/hospital industry, and the general positive effect on the economy that a healthier working population brings?

Oh, and also this travesty:



I would've thrown my garbage all over the field too.

I wish they'd be more specific than "other and unspecified malignant neoplasms of lymphoid, hematopoietic and related tissue" ...

I thought Littlefinger's plan would come to fruition before any wedding so I was surprised by the end.  Now not sure what LF is up to. And is Sansa still his ally?

Just got done blitz watching the whole thing over the last two weeks.

It kinda seems like his entire plan relies on House Bolton defeating Stannis in the battle for the North. If Stannis wins then he's back to square one with the Veil being on the front lines of the Baratheon advance. He would yet again become entirely beholden to the Lannisters to defeat Stannis.

I'm assuming he wants Stannis to win and declare Sansa the warden of the North, restoring the Starks to power. That way, Littlefinger has two regions essentially under his control.

2014: Alabama 25, Mississippi State 20.

After years and years of agony, we finally get a chance at glory and we blow it. Sad

I believe the incumbent qualifies.

For all of them?

I thought I saw a few blue avatars gushing over some exit poll that said Romney won the under-20s. Is that right?

Paul, Christie, and Rubio, and maybe a couple of no-shots who don't matter anyway

The Reaganfans are going to be really upset if this happens.
92  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary backs Tubman on $20 on: May 16, 2015, 03:49:09 pm
I think we should put Jonas Salk on the $20. He saved more lives in America and around the world than Harriet Tubman, any president or any "liberating" military intervention this country has ever embarked on.

It would help refute the stereotype the rest of the world has of us as a country that isn't interested in science or in "book learnin'" in general.

Norman Borlaug would also be a great choice.

Probably not, but she has a better chance of winning it than Ben Carson does, and would probably win more electoral votes against Hillary than he would too.
95  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Will Bernie Sanders endorse the Democratic nominee? on: May 05, 2015, 11:37:27 pm
If he does not (privately) promise to do so, he should not be allowed in any debates or on any primary ballots.

(Obviously this rule should apply to the rest of the candidates as well.)

Wulfric,

Are you really going to deny that these are Christian ceremonies?

Are you really going to "go there" and say that these churches do not perform valid marriages in the eyes of God? As someone who was married (to an opposite-sex partner) in the Episcopal Church, I am personally offended if believe that marriages performed by my church aren't "real."

You can't have it both ways. Either the above couples aren't married, and neither am I, or we are all. Surely you wouldn't be so presumptive to think you can pick and choose which Episcopal marriages are real and which aren't. Surely...

You can call them whatever you like, but they're not valid marriages in the eyes of god.

And, you'd actually rather have no marriage at all rather than traditional marriage only? Seriously?

I don't know what this "rather" is. Either Episcopal Church performs valid marriages or it does not. Same goes for the Lutherans, Presbyterians, UCC, etc. You can't arbitrarily pick and choose to personally recognize some of these churches' holy marriages and not others.

Because he believes that God says that's wrong, "and no one can ever say otherwise."  You just ended a sentence with "and no one can ever say otherwise" and you're asking how he can have a rigid, faith-based view?

Not up on your Update memes, I see?
99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gay marriage opponents' strategy uncertain in 2015 on: May 02, 2015, 10:59:25 pm


These are faithful Christians entering into the sacrament of marriage before God in His church, and no one can ever say otherwise.

Why does the insufferable anti-gay crowd pretend their bigotry applies to ALL of Christianity?


No amount of hatred and vitriol will ever make this anything other than a Christian wedding.
