Come on, Kirsten. Names. We want names.

Since she isn't saying, anyone want to speculate on who they are?

Robert Byrd is who comes to mind first.

I would certainly not be so presumptuous as to tell the Potawatomi Tribe who they can and can't consider to be a "real" Indian.
78  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Your top 5 Family Guy episodes? on: September 02, 2014, 09:20:25 pm
I Dream of Jesus

Wait, is that that horrendous "bird is the word" episode? That was the episode that made me quit watching Family Guy regularly, it was so wretched.

To answer the question, I like the one about the FCC a lot.
79  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Should the Washington NFL franchise's name be changed? on: September 02, 2014, 07:30:08 pm
Yes (apparently not normal, but correct anyway)

Absolutely not.  I'm a Native American and the name does not offend me.  Everybody likes to get butt hurt over something and this is a pointless exercise that serves absolutely no purpose, but to satisfy the taste buds of political correctness activists.
Actually, Native American leaders have been spearheading this for decades. It has nothing to do with "political correctness activists," if such a thing even exists.

<shrugs> I hope they're right.
81  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NFL draft prospect Michael Sam comes out as gay--UPDATE: cut by Rams on: September 01, 2014, 10:47:22 pm
He had the unluck to get drafted to a team that already had a great DL.

2 syllables, just like "Organ" (normal?)
83  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Nobody is noticing but Democrats are absolutely flooring the GOP with SuperPACs on: August 30, 2014, 09:28:14 am
Did anyone else notice the Democratic ration of negative advertising far outstrips the GOP?

Well that is the best argument Democrats have, that they're not the GOP...

Yeah, especially in a state like Iowa where we're running a very mediocre candidate against Christine O'Donnell redux...

Will you watch Mississippi State take Southern Miss to the woodshed tomorrow? Should be a fun one.
86  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Cool chart about religion and politics in the US on: August 29, 2014, 11:08:50 pm
I didn't realize any religions fell in the lower right sections. Interesting.

I'm actually extremely confused about that.  I wouldn't consider Methodists nor Episcopalians to be particularly right-wing economically, from my experience.

Episcopals are often stereotyped as rich and snobby, and they probably have a lot more Republicans than you'd expect from a church that endorsed gay equality so early. I think the spot on the chart is fair.
87  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Opinion of this statement on: August 29, 2014, 11:05:05 pm
It is in everyone's best interest for people who want to be on birth control but can't afford it to be on it. In a head-scratching irony, you'd think the "pro-life" crowd would be the biggest proponents of it.

You can't make that same case for access to cable TV.
88  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Americans both support unions and right to work laws on: August 29, 2014, 06:40:58 pm
Does Gallup even know what a "right-to-work" law is? They asked whether people would support a law that says people don't have to join a union. That's not a "right-to-work" law. There's already a federal law like this.

If they phrase it that way, they're still going to get 75% approval.

McDaniel didn't come this far to give up now.

In game #2 tonight, Ole Miss leads Boise State 7-3, with about six minutes to go in the first half.

It would be pretty amazing if Boise State could pull this out.

Looks like I was wrong about Texas A&M, whom I had picked to come in 6th in the SEC West, but we'll see.
92  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Nine year old kills gun instructor with Uzi on: August 28, 2014, 05:38:02 pm
Anyone who thinks a 9-year old needs to know how to use an Uzi... should have their child taken away from them...

Alright blue and yellow avatars... 'ave at it.
Have you even read the article or any posts in this thread? She did not own the gun. It was not given to her by her parents. It was given to her by a dumbass instructor who got himself shot because of his personal stupidity. This is not something that normally happens at shooting ranges.

Even if her parents didn't specifically request an Uzi for her,

1. Her parents still brought her to a shooting range at age 9.
2. Her parents didn't put a stop to it when the instructor handed her the Uzi.

The only thing that worries me is you know Jaleel White is getting ideas.

How is that worrisome? That would be amazing!
94  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: College Football Pick'em- 2014 style on: August 28, 2014, 07:17:05 am
So excited about this season!.

South Carolina
Ole Miss, unfortunately
Washington State (my 2nd favorite team because of Leach)
Ohio State
Florida State
Wisconsin (upset special?)

Personally, I find 538's current set articles way more interesting than yet another update of "who do we think is gonna win today!!!!1"

Yes, of course.

But why do you ask?

Is DesJarlais pro-choice politically? If not, why didn't the state party force him to resign when this scandal broke, and/or refuse to put him on the primary ballot? Seems like a pretty obvious move for a Southern Republican party...

Not gonna lie, that was pretty cool.
99  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: DNC adopts imaginary primary calendar with Iowa on Feb. 1st on: August 24, 2014, 10:09:28 pm
Why can't they simply hold all the primaries on one and the same day?

Because having smaller states first gives "minor" candidates a chance to gain name recognition and momentum.

I like that, but it's pretty ridiculous that Iowa and New Hampshire ALWAYS get to go first.

There should be some kind of rotating schedule if we don't do it all on the same day.
100  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Realistically, could anyone beat Hillary in a primary? on: August 24, 2014, 10:08:26 pm
The way things stand today, no, but there's some always amount of uncertainty when looking 2 years into the future.

The best hope for the anti-Hillary crowd is for her to not run for whatever reason.
