1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Does Gary Johnson regret becoming addicted to drugs? on: September 28, 2016, 11:57:14 pm
Yet another hack thread from the leading Clintonbot on the forum....

Yes, Gary Johnson has consumed marijuana in his past, as have over 55% of American adults.

If Lief's argument is correct, then over 50% of Americans would have permanent brain damage based upon smoking marijuana.

Meanwhile, there is no mention of actually more severe medical issues caused by alcohol consumption, that actually are correlated with higher rates of damage to brain cells, as well as many other effects.

Granted, Gary Johnson did a crap job today on the Town Forum, after his Allepo moment a few weeks back, and a bizarre statement regarding the "sun will collapse in 4 Billion Years so why deal with Global warming now".... or something to that effect....

BUT Lief, you are taking hackery to a new low.....and yes I am with her.

How much time does the sun have left? Half of a billion years?

Yes. Yes he is. And he's actually winning in the polls right now. Take a look. He's beating Hillary by double digits. And leading with Hispanics. And he'll win on Election Day, because Hillary is too flawed to win.

You see, I can bullsh**t much better than you.

And let's not forget that Bridgeport, CT and the rest of its home county is looking competitive. That's why he made a campaign visit to Connecticut some time ago.

Texas.

Donald Trump is loved in Texas almost on the same level as Kim Jong Un is loved in North Korea.

There's a difference between being loved and being feared.
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / (Hypothetical) Donald Trump's strategy for winning Washington, D.C. on: September 28, 2016, 10:13:40 pm
Let's say that Donald Trump was completely delusional and wanted to win the District of Columbia just to prove that he's a better Republican candidate than even Ronald Reagan. What would his strategy be?
5  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: IA-Loras College: Blum and Young both favored. on: September 28, 2016, 09:58:17 pm
I have a gut feeling that Rod Blum is going to win by a very thin margin.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Pennsylvania had passed the Maine/Nebraska plan on: September 27, 2016, 09:33:23 pm
What if Pennsylvania rewarded electoral votes based on the percentage of the popular vote? For example, if Hillary Clinton won the state with sixty percent of the vote, she would get two for winning the state and sixty percent of the rest of the electoral votes.

I hope Greitens being Jewish isn't hurting him. He seems like a great leader.

He has to worry about Chris Koster's name recognition.

I remember reading about how Sam Steiger ran for the United States Senate from Arizona and was even the anointed one. He won the Republican nomination after a nasty primary battle in which his heritage was brought up, but lost the general election to Dennis DeConcini.

Interesting. Didn't know his Jewish heritage and religion was brought into question. I do know he later registered with the Libertarian Party.

Things were certainly different many decades ago. And, sadly, in some states, these things still go on.

It's depressing that things are still like that these days.

Stephen Goldsmith, who was Mayor of Indianapolis, ran for Governor of Indiana in 1996 and he almost made it. I don't know what happened.

Just learned Kander is Jewish lol. Along with Greitens in the Gov race, Kander is a military vet. Apparently, Missouri is the place to go to find Jewish War vets who also happen to be attractive.

Kander sounds like a Jewish last name since it almost sounds like 'Cantor'.

That's true. never thought of it that way.

It seems like being Jewish is a major handicap in the political world. Historically, there haven't been very many Jewish senators and governors despite several candidates running for those offices.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If George W. Bush travelled back in time, to where he was January 2001... on: September 23, 2016, 10:55:48 pm
If George W. Bush traveled back in time, he would probably meet his 2001 self and cause a time paradox.

There's a theory that if time travel was possible, a time traveler would be unable to change the past and the future.

If we assume that he can change the timeline without the said issues, he could create a timeline that was better during the first sixteen years, but the future ended up being far worse. History is really just a huge crapshoot.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jason Kander wins, but my gut still tells me that Roy Blunt is going to win. This is Missouri after all and it's slowly slipping away from the Democrats.

13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / How would Ted Cruz have fared in the general election? on: September 23, 2016, 09:57:50 pm
I think Ted Cruz might have been a better choice than Donald Trump, but not by much. At least he doesn't constantly attack people on Twitter and say crazy stuff all the time.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Why is Florida a purple state and not a blue one? on: September 18, 2016, 03:04:13 pm
Why is Florida a purple state? I'm kind of surprised that Florida isn't blue with all the diversity that it has.
15  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of Wikipedia? on: September 17, 2016, 01:17:54 am
Wikipedia gets an unfair amount of flak. While it is useful, you shouldn't rely on it too much or use it to write a paper.

Did you guys know you can download the entire Wikipedia archive? I try to keep my local copy up-to-date once or twice a year for when I spend time in the country with limited service.

Honestly, it's hard to overstate how valuable I believe Wikipedia to be. It's a symbol of what the Internet is doing for mankind - bringing the collective knowledge of humanity to one's fingertips, 24/7. Where else can you learn about such a diverse array of topics and random stuff without having to even put on a pair of pants?

What? You don't need to be wearing pants to be using Wikipedia?!

The "blue firewall" is the only wall that Mexico would actually pay for.
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why are colleges shutting down free speech? on: September 15, 2016, 08:43:36 pm
I'm not sure that I agree with the original poster in this thread, but I'm actually wondering why college students need to have "safe spaces".

It seems like everyone is emotionally sensitive these days. There are actually people that experience PTSD-type symptoms from seeing a Trump/Pence sticker or even the name "Trump".

Grow some goddamned skin!

Rest in peace, Rose Mofford.

It seems like yesterday that I first started reading about her on Wikipedia.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Why does Arizona have so many female politicians/potential politicians? on: September 14, 2016, 10:50:29 pm
You know what's ironic? How none of the states in the Rocky Mountain West have elected a female senator.
20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Why does Arizona have so many female politicians/potential politicians? on: September 13, 2016, 10:59:44 pm
Also, in the 1998 General Election, Arizona was the first state to elect females to all statewide executive offices. This included Janet Napolitano, who won her Attorney General election by 3 percent, while Republican's won by massive margins in other contests.

There is still one last glass ceiling: a Senate seat.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Why does Arizona have so many female politicians/potential politicians? on: September 13, 2016, 08:42:19 pm
It should be noted that Sandra Day O'Connor, the first lady on the Supreme Court, is also from the Grand Canyon State, though she was born in Texas.
22  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NV-SEN: Who could challenge Heller in 2018? on: September 13, 2016, 12:31:30 am
What about Dan Schwartz (assuming he's not angling for Governor or some other position)?
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / If Twitter went down for several months... on: September 13, 2016, 12:26:43 am
If Twitter went down for several months, how would that affect the dynamics of the presidential election?
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: What do you think's gonna happen to Thad Cochran in 2020? on: September 13, 2016, 12:11:29 am
I have a feeling that Thad Cochran is going to retire.

It would be hilarious if he ran for reelection, got Lugar'ed, and Mississippi got the Joe Donnelly treatment.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Why exactly did Chic Hecht lose in 1988? on: September 10, 2016, 05:33:32 pm
I used to live in Nevada and it was pretty Republican not too long ago.

Some of his gaffes were indeed amusing.
