1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / What if the American news networks started airing fake news? on: February 17, 2017, 07:27:21 pm
Donald Trump is constantly complaining about the liberal media airing fake news (not true). What would happen if they actually aired fake news?
2  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Are the wheels falling off the Trump Administration? on: February 16, 2017, 07:34:51 pm
Michael Flynn had to resign and now Andy Puzder withdrew his nomination. How long until everything falls apart?
3  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Is being a Mormon a prerequisite to getting elected in Utah? on: February 13, 2017, 11:55:17 pm
It seems like just about every politician in Utah is a member of the Latter Day Saints and I get the feeling that Jason Chaffetz would have not gotten elected to Congress if he didn't convert to Mormonism.

Is it possible to hold higher office as a non-Mormon in Utah, ableit as a Republican?
4  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: If the Trump-wreck continues, how big will the Democratic wave be? on: February 13, 2017, 11:52:18 pm
I think Issa and King will go down

Which King? Steve King? That's not happening. For him to be defeated, you would need everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, to go right. Turnout would need to be driven up to extremes in places like Ames, Fort Dodge and Mason City, which all have decent-sized populations and tend to support Democrats. You'd also need to lure away moderate Republicans somehow and convince independents to vote him out as well.

Same thing goes for Peter King, who always seems to get reelected without a problem.

Why the hell does Steve King, a raging anti-immigrant politician and demon masquerading as a human, always win? Does he have a huge warchest or something?
5  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Opinion of Donald Trump's inauguration cake on: February 13, 2017, 01:46:57 am
What is your opinion of Donald Trump's inauguration cake, which is an exact copy of President Obama's inauguration cake and is made of styrofoam?

For anyone who cares, they actually have the cake in The Daily Show's studio.
6  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CA-Sen: Feinstein gearing up for another run in 2018 on: February 13, 2017, 12:19:28 am
Seriously, people need to find something else to be outraged about other than incumbents running for re-election. Having new people run just for the sake of being is lame thinking, candidates have to have substance beyond being "new". If you want new people, focus on flipping GOP seats to Democratic.

Yeah, like California doesn't have dozens of people that would be more than qualified to hold this seat, while not holding Dinosaur Feinstein's medieval views on national security?

My point is that this "new blood" meme is stupid. Just being new to politics is not a good reason to be elected, some substance is necessary too.

Dianne Feinstein is the 2nd worst Senator from a solid blue state after Carper, and California is more solid blue than Delaware, and most blue state Senators are still pretty bad.

Plus her husband made a killing wartime profiteering from her Iraq war vote. She's a vile disgrace.

How is Tom Carper an awful senator? He seems like a good guy.
7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Predict Donald Trump's twitter tirade if he gets impeached and/or convicted on: February 11, 2017, 04:00:05 pm
Have fun with this one.
8  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / What would happen if a member of Congress switched to the Libertarian Party? on: February 10, 2017, 05:18:00 pm
Let's say that one of the Republicans stopped giving a damn and switched their party affiliation to Libertarian. What would happen aside from not getting reelected?
9  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Google Surveys Polling Megathread: MO - McCaskill +8 over Wagner on: February 09, 2017, 05:46:14 pm
@TheRealDonaldTrump: Fake polls show ultraliberal @McCaskill defeating patriot Ann Wagner in 2018 Senate Election. Sad!
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: How long should one live in a state to not be considered a carpetbagger? on: February 08, 2017, 05:45:14 pm
Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) is originally from Georgia and still speaks in a southern drawl. She hasn't had any problems.

Well, most of Nevada isn't originally from Nevada. Tongue

It's funny you should say that because my hometown is Phoenix, but I was born in Reno, Nevada.

Hey, we were born in the same city. Tongue

How long did you live there? I lived there for almost thirteen years.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: PA State Senator Calls Donald Trump a "fascist, loofa-faced, sh**t-gibbon" on: February 08, 2017, 05:11:55 pm
It should also be noted that asset forfeiture is quite rampant.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler have a common ancestor? on: February 08, 2017, 05:04:25 pm
I also wonder why Adolf Hitler shot himself in the head in that bunker rather than going out guns blazing against Allied soldiers.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Do Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler have a common ancestor? on: February 08, 2017, 04:41:53 pm
I am seriously beginning to wonder if both of these guys have a common ancestor due to their similarities.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: PA State Senator Calls Donald Trump a "fascist, loofa-faced, sh**t-gibbon" on: February 08, 2017, 04:37:22 pm
Ah, Daylin Leach. I remember reading about how when he ran for the legislature, he was called an anti-Semite and a Holocaust denier when both of those things are flat out untrue.

I also remember reading about how a family in Pennsylvania almost lost their home because the son was selling drugs. Philadelphia still has a civil asset forfeiture problem.

I tip off my hat to Pennsylvania State Senator Daylin Leach for tackling civil asset forfeiture and trashing Donald Trump like he deserves.

I am seriously tempted to say "F*** THE POLICE!", but it might be inappropriate here.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: How long should one live in a state to not be considered a carpetbagger? on: February 08, 2017, 04:24:53 pm
I think five years is more than enough for any state.

Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) is originally from Georgia and still speaks in a southern drawl. She hasn't had any problems.

Well, most of Nevada isn't originally from Nevada. Tongue

It's funny you should say that because my hometown is Phoenix, but I was born in Reno, Nevada.

My father actually knows Brian Sandoval who was born in California and I've met Congressman Mark Amodei in Washington, D.C. who was born in Carson City, Nevada.
16  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: McConnell shuts down Warren for reading Corretta Scott King letter on: February 07, 2017, 10:12:14 pm
Mitch McConnell is a deplorable piece of s**t. News at eleven.
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) for Senate? on: February 07, 2017, 09:56:36 pm
Arizona has been electing old WASPy guys to the Senate for over a century and I wonder if that trend is going to continue.
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: US military convoy drives through Kentucky flying Trump campaign flag on: February 07, 2017, 04:37:16 pm
Okay, I'm in the military and I can tell you that political activities are severely limited. You can vote and attend political rallies in civilian clothes and that is about it. Attending a partisan event, such as a Democratic dinner is prohibited. You are not even allowed to talk about politics, not even to make a reference about the recent presidential election.

And yes, flying the Trump campaign flag is prohibited.

As far as the bisexual atheist thing: I don't think anyone really cares about a candidate's sexuality any more outside of say, Arkansas. And she's always been careful to avoid the "atheist" label, she tends to call herself "spiritual" and say she doesn't like labels.

The "Prada Socialist" stuff was largely written off as "I was more radical in college but I've mellowed out since". Similar to Chris Coons and his bearded Marxist comment.

Bright, young, moderate voting record, charismatic, inspiring personal back story. I think the only question is how strong her opponent is, and is Arizona willing to put a Democrat in the Senate.

I think that is the real question. Is Arizona, a deep red state, going to send a Democrat to the Senate and is she "too liberal" for the state?
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Does Chris Christie have a political future? on: February 04, 2017, 11:47:15 am
he has thrown away all of his political capital when kneeling before trump and than got thrown away by his new master.

angered tea party types before, alienated the middle of the US....he has...eh...burned all bridges.

Assuming that he didn't close them down in the first place.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Beth Fukumoto switching parties on: February 04, 2017, 11:40:53 am
And to think, when Hawaii was admitted as a state, there was an assumption that it would be a Republican-leaning state that would offset the anticipated Democratic-leaning state of Alaska.

Why was Hawaii expected to be Republican-leaning and Alaska Democratic-leaning?
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Did Donald Trump have a nickname for Debbie Wasserman Schultz? on: February 04, 2017, 11:34:44 am
This is probably a dumb question, but did Donald Trump actually have a nickname for her or did he just keep calling her "neurotic"? And is there an exhaustive list of nicknames he had for other politicians?
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / (Junk thread) How would Mickey Mouse have done against Clinton or Trump? on: February 02, 2017, 05:10:34 pm
This thread is just for fun since we've posted all kinds of threads in this section about potential nominees.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / If Donald Trump placed the TRUMP logo on the White House on: January 30, 2017, 05:34:40 pm
I know this is not going to happen, but what if Donald Trump actually had a construction team install a huge sign with the TRUMP logo onto the top of the White House?
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Will David Duke run for Congress in 2018? on: January 28, 2017, 01:49:56 pm
What would happen if David Duke somehow got elected to the House or to the Senate?
