Heaven has none of those things. Hell is a non-biblical myth.

Hillary. She would have served two terms and Obama would've won in 2016.
79  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Anti-Vaccine Parents Feel Empowered by Donald Trump on: February 21, 2017, 05:14:47 pm
Vaccination is a net good for society. I will say, I don't understand how so many lefties here can support a ban on parents choosing which public schools their children attend because it undermines community schools, but then vote in this poll that theyd support school choice to avoid "those people". Especially when "those people" dont stop you from vaccinating your kid first. If my kid has been vaccinated against the measels should I really fear for her safety in public school because some other kid who wasnt so lucky is hypothetically allowed in rather than being denied an education?

Because a very small percentage of people are allergic to the vaccines and just have to take their chances. Those unlucky people should not have their lives put at risk because some gullible alt-right armchair scientist is too stupid to realize that anti-vaccine hysteria is a hoax.

Thankfully I live in an enlightened progressive state where students must be vaccinated to attend public or private schools, no "religious" or "philosophical" exceptions whatsoever.

Who on Fox News is liberal other than that obnoxious fat guy who faces off against 4 conservatives on one of their fair and balanced talk shows?
82  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Single-payer healthcare bill introduced in California on: February 18, 2017, 08:45:19 pm
If set it up like a health insurance company (or just give a contract to an already-existing insurance company) charging premiums and everything, and there's no reason that this would fail as long as its mandatory and there's no mass sabotage effort from Republicans.

Want to cover illegal immigrants? That's fine if they pay their premiums. Want to cover Nevadans and Arizonans who move to California for the healthcare? No problem, as long as they pay their premiums.

Again, this is not single payer. This is the system we have now.

It's ... literally one payer. I'm only suggesting how to fund it.

If we can get every red state to pass these (or maybe one at the federal level if we get 60 seats in 2018), is big business, sports, and music going to really boycott half- or all- of the country?  It's a lot easier for them when it is just North Carolina or just North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, and Kansas (CA law).

Trump is against these, so you'll need 67 senators at least (assuming he's still president in 2019), and that assumes that every single one of them goes along with it. (I imagine only around half of Republican U.S. Senators would support a nationwide law.)
85  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Transgender Bathroom Bill ft. Texas on: February 18, 2017, 10:07:16 am
The NFL needs to put up or shut up. Either make the Cowboys and Texans play every game on the road or stop the nonsense. If the NFL can allow 16 regular season games in Texas it can allow a Super Bowl  there too.

Same goes for the NBA and North Carolina. Makes no sense to cancel the All-Star game when it's fine playing 41 Hornets games there.

Funny how the usual suspects are attacking Chelsea but giving Caroline Kennedy a free pass for doing the same thing. #agenda

"Asset" might be a more accurate term than agent or spy.

No but the FBI should investigate Flynn, Stein, Trump, and other likely KGB agents
90  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Oklahoma lawmakers want men to approve all abortions on: February 13, 2017, 10:50:37 pm
Yet America voted for Trump, who made it very clear that Roe would be gone under him. I trust abortion polls about as far as I can throw them.

...

I mean, there's no way that you didn't know that Hillary won the popular vote by 3,000,000 votes, and there's no way it just slipped your mind.

The nationwide popular vote means about as much to me as a speck of dust on the ground. Both are useless.

That's fine, but you know that "America voted for Trump" is an objectively false statement. Why would anyone ever try to be wrong on purpose?
91  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Oklahoma lawmakers want men to approve all abortions on: February 13, 2017, 10:46:29 pm
This is why we need to get rid of Roe vs. Wade, so we can severely restrict abortion in a direct manner, rather than through all this backdoor stuff.

Luckily almost 70% of Americans disagree.

Most people think overturning Roe v. Wade = banning abortion. People are stupid.

It might. It wouldn't necessarily, but it would be up to the justices. Hypothetically, they could find that fetuses are persons and abortion is banned under anti-murder statues. Lots of Republicans would like to see that.

Obviously, turning it back to the states is more likely, but it's not obvious for "people are stupid" snark.

The streak will hit 112, but then UConn will lose the Championship game to Mississippi State, the only team in the NCAA with a good enough combo of inside and outside game to have a shot against them.

And yes, I'm extremely aware that we lost to them by 60 in the Sweet 16 last year.
96  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Donald Trump: Delusional & Pathological Liar on: February 13, 2017, 08:23:28 pm
jfern's obsession with Hillary is almost as disturbing as BRTD's hero-worship of opebo.  It almost -almost- makes me want the Democratic Party to nominate her again just to see jfern have a meltdown.

You'd like a 2 term President Trump just to piss me off?

To be fair, Hillary would probably beat Trump if he was up for reelection today. That could obviously change by November 2020, but I bet it won't.
97  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Donald Trump: Delusional & Pathological Liar on: February 13, 2017, 10:17:09 am
Both Trump and Hillary have some loose screws.

From now on I'm going to post anti-Jill Stein stuff in every anti-Trump thread so you can see how petty and annoying it is.
98  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of no-fault divorce on: February 12, 2017, 09:47:56 pm
All divorce is horrible divorce.  But, no-fault divorce has created the idea in our culture that marriage doesn't have to be permanent.  This has led to less commitment on the part of spouses and the decline in family values.  We need to stop with this culture that accepts one-night stands, casual sex, and divorce without a valid reason!!

Yep this is spot on I agree

Two Trump voters

The one who can win a general election (Booker), which is all that matters in primaries.

-The only reason to believe Booker is more electable than Gabbard is the Black turnout issue. But that is a powerful reason, indeed.

That, plus the fact that Gabbard isn't Christian and won't be 40 yet in 2020.
