1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: How many women will be governors? on: August 20, 2017, 12:18:18 am
Around 10, probably.

Kay Ivey, Kim Reynolds, and Kate Brown are all very likely to win re-election.

Michelle Lujan Grisham, Kristi Noem, Diane Black, and Gina Raimondo are favourites to be elected (or reelected in Raimondo's case)

Gretchen Whitmer, Gwen Graham, Donna Lynne, Janet Mills, Rebecca Otto, Nan Whaley, and Kathleen Vinehout are serious contenders for their respective primaries and the general election.

Colleen Hanabusa would be a shoo-in to be Hawaii's next Governor if the current Governor steps down due to his horrible approval ratings. Cynthia Lummis would wipe the floor for Wyoming Governor if she decided to run. Either one of the Stacey's might have a chance of winning the Georgia governship depending on the national atmosphere.

There's no guarantee that Stacey Evans or Stacey Abrams will win in Georgian. Kim Reynolds might not win the general election. Diane Black might clear the Republican primary and yet lose to Karl Dean.

I think your predictions are too generous.

Missouri is a goddamned joke.

Did you know that in Missouri in the past, if a man raped his wife, he can use marriage as a defense? Senator Claire McCaskill talked about it in her book.
3  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Who do you think is worse? George W. Bush or Donald Trump? on: August 17, 2017, 12:43:00 am
Who do you think is worse? I'd say Donald Trump for obvious reasons such as his gross unprofessionalism.
4  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Ways in which the legal system is screwed on: August 14, 2017, 09:02:26 pm
This is the thread in which you post the ways in which the legal system is messed up.

If someone tries to rob a convenience store with a weapon and the employee decides to fight back, he or she (the employee) can be liable for a lawsuit if the perpetrator has the audacity to sue the employee and depending on the circumstances. This is why here in the Phoenix area, Circle K employees are supposed to just hand over the money and activate the alarm, and are not allowed to resist. A bystander who decides to be a hero is also liable for a lawsuit.

I didn't remember it off the top of my head (though it sounded like something back in the fog), but seeing the video reminded me that I had in fact played the level before so I'm sure I got it on accident a time or two.  The "trick" was kind of complicated.


SMB3 is my favorite side scroller of all time.  I'm of a certain age.

I was five or six when I first played it and that was around 1990.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Decisive VP Picks on: August 10, 2017, 08:55:28 pm
I've read that Richard Nixon picked Spiro Agnew because he was Southern enough to win Southern votes and yet not too Southern to scare off Northern voters.
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Philadelphia County 1948 - 1952 on: August 10, 2017, 08:54:01 pm
Philadelphia County turned into a deep blue county during the FDR years and hasn't gone back since.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Is Ronald Reagan partly responsible for Donald Trump being president? on: August 10, 2017, 02:20:12 am
Think about it, Ronald Reagan picked George H.W. Bush as his running mate. If George H.W. Bush never became vice president and then president, it wouldn't have led to George W. Bush becoming president. Dubya did a lot of damage during his presidency and that led to Barack Obama getting elected and having to clean up his predecessor's mess. Unfortunately, the Republicans were brazenly unfair to Obama and ruined his chances of having an outstanding presidency which led to Hillary Clinton losing to Donald Trump.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: (Thread) Interesting factoids about presidential elections. on: August 10, 2017, 02:11:32 am

Morris County, KS (between Bush and Perot)

Morris County is truly a jewel, as third-party counties are rare anyway, and a tie between a major party and a third party is like a coin ship in Super Mario Bros 3. 💎💰

How exactly do you get the coin ship? I've done it only once and it was by accident.
10  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NV-SEN: Rosen in on: August 09, 2017, 12:10:32 am
A Tarkanian primary challenge likely won't take out Heller, but makes it all the more likely that Rosen will.

Yes, a nasty primary is going to threaten, if not destroy, Dean Heller's chances of getting reelected.
11  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: How long will the New England Patriots dynasty last? on: August 08, 2017, 01:07:17 am
I wasn't aware that the New England Cheaters were still allowed to play.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What would happen if we (conventionally) bombed NK? on: August 07, 2017, 11:39:13 pm
Wouldn't it be better if Kim Jong-Un got hit by a meteor or something rather than risk the lives of millions of troops?

If we have to send personnel, then we should send a covert ops team.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump TV providing Americans with REAL news on: August 07, 2017, 11:30:20 pm
We've had vicious kings and we've had idiot kings, but I don't know if we've ever been cursed with a vicious idiot for a king.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Fox News Host Eric Bolling texted unsolicited nudes to female colleagues on: August 07, 2017, 12:12:58 pm
what would be their reaction be if a popular politician did this to a 15 year old (after getting caught doing it 3 times before that)?  One with direct ties to a Presidential candidate?  But that's way too weird to actually happen.

That would result in a thrice-married deplorable man playing on peoples' emotions and attacking everyone on Twitter to get elected President of the United States. It won't ever happen in a properly-run universe.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Joe Arpaio found guilty of federal contempt of court charge on: August 05, 2017, 04:33:43 pm
It's about time that this fascist lost reelection and gets charged.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Richard Mourdock vs. Todd Akin on: August 05, 2017, 11:04:55 am
Just based on their infamous statements, Mourdock, because while what he said was insensitive, it was based in a sincere belief commonly held by pro-lifers that all life is precious and worthy of protection. Akin's comments were totally outrageous.

Interestingly, I was coming here to essentially post this. If Akin honestly believes that rape victims can't get pregnant, then he's saying that every pregnant woman who said she was raped is  liar. So not only is it predatory pseudoscience, but also hardcore Red Pill nonsense.

I agree with this. If you have sex with a woman forcefully or if coercion is involved, it is rape even if she somehow enjoyed it.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Describe a Republican who voted for Al Gore on: August 01, 2017, 02:23:54 am
Any Republican who is not an evangelical and couldn't stomach George W. Bush's anti-intellectualism.
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is there any former POTUS, living or dead, who wouldn't be appalled by Trump? on: July 30, 2017, 01:58:59 am
I think every last one of them would be appalled.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: (Thread) Laws that are horses**t on: July 30, 2017, 01:54:43 am
That whole "not murdering law" if I go into Starbucks and order a French Vanilka Frappuchino and I to wait 10 minutes for it I should be allowed to shoot someone in the face

If you are being sarcastic, then I don't appreciate it.

If I really want to dress up like the Batman or Joker in public, even in Virginia, I'm going to do it.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: First Human Embryos Edited in U.S. on: July 29, 2017, 10:00:14 pm
oh yeah, I forgot good news was troll bait to Luddites.  How dare future humans be healthier, smarter and live longer lives...those bastards, haven't they ever seen a movie?

It's funny you should say that because Gattaca immediately comes to mind.

I'm surprised that movie hasn't been mentioned before I replied to this thread.
I don't like movies where the main protagonist is the worst person in the film.

How was Vincent Freeman the worst person in the movie?
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: When will Sparky actually score with a lady? on: July 29, 2017, 03:43:53 am
when Pennsylvania legalizes prostitution.

So, why is prostitution illegal, aside from the human trafficking factor?

23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MD- Sen 2022 Could Hogan win? on: July 28, 2017, 11:21:05 pm
No. Congressional elections are now much more polarized then gubernatorial. You will not find Charlie Bakers among present day Republican Senators. And the last Republican to win Senate election in Maryland was venerable Charles Mathias. Alas, Hogai isn't Mathias...

Charles Mathias was pretty liberal by Republican standards.
24  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Reading the Bible on: July 28, 2017, 01:44:34 am
Reading the Bible?

My attention span isn't long enough to read the whole thing and I could barely read through Atlas Shrugged. I would probably throw it at Mike Pence.

I think Revelations is the most interesting part, not that I've read the entire thing.
