Seriously, Virginia?

How about President Snow(flake)?
3  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Whose approval rating will be higher on election day, 2018? on: March 26, 2017, 12:03:40 am
Donald Trump would have higher approval in 2018 rating than Congress because he actually gets things done.

Congress has a lower approval rating than certain types of STDs.

I think he will just retire in 2020. I just can't see McConnell being a US Senator till 2026.

Remember, scientists have gotten close to discovering how to reverse the aging process.
5  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NV-02: Angle declares her candidacy on: March 25, 2017, 11:52:52 pm
I am not surprised Angle is making a bid for Congress. She craves elected office so it makes sense she is running for Congress, the most Republican seat in Nevada. I think she could pull out a win but it'll be hard if Amodei runs again. If he doesn't she might be a shoo in for the seat because of how conservative she is.

It's amazing how synonymous conservative and crazy have become.

There are liberals that are crazy as well, but you are on the right track.

Sharron Angle can still lose the general election for the House seat because she has a history of throwing away winnable elections and northern Nevada has become less Republican in recent history. Washoe County has voted Democrat in presidential elections since 2008.

Herr Fuhrer and Cinnamon Hitler are my first suggestions.

How about Lord Voldemort and He Who Shall Not Be Named?

No, I haven't seen it.

It looks like a Michael Bay Transformers movie.

In the late 1960's, early 1970's, astronauts on the moon took some photos to check the shape of the Earth.



Spherical apparently.

The earth is actually an oblate spheroid. Seriously.
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Substitute Teacher Goes Rogue, Conducts "Mock Slave Auction" at NJ School on: March 24, 2017, 10:54:18 am
Apparently something similar just happened in New Jersey earlier this month where elementary school students were given an "assignment [that] listed “a poster for a lecture, speech, protest or slave auction” as examples."

I'd wager the substitute teacher and whoever created this assignment weren't descendents of a people who were enslaved on the basis of their socially constructed race, nor have they experienced systemic or social dehumanization for belonging to a particular group of disadvantaged people. Otherwise, they would've instinctively known that this is appalling, dehumanizing, and wrong. But this also raises the question: what the hell is wrong with New Jersey?

Race is not a social construct. The assignment is still wrong on several levels though.
10  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Can Mitch McConnell be defeated in 2020? on: March 23, 2017, 01:32:06 pm
Assuming that Turtleface runs for reelection for the one billionth time, what would it take to defeat him and who do we run?

I think that he's potentially vulnerable because of Donald Trump acting as an albatross and people in Kentucky are about sick of him.

Does John Yarmuth leap at the opportunity since he's going to eventually lose his seat due to redistricting?

13  General Discussion / Alternative History / Re: If Donald Trump went into the legal profession on: March 22, 2017, 10:15:51 pm
He'd have been disbarred years ago.

Why? Is it because of his temperament and behavior?

Any Trump supporter in this thread who doesn't favor the nuclear option is stupid.

We don't want nuclear fallout to poison our atmosphere.
15  General Discussion / Alternative History / If Donald Trump went into the legal profession on: March 22, 2017, 11:35:17 am
If Donald Trump went into the legal profession rather than in the business field, how well would he have done and what would the timeline look like today?

Another bill pertaining to women's health from the progressives in Texas.

This is the same place in which you can open carry a rifle on a college campus, but you can't open carry a dildo.
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: NV-02: Angle declares her candidacy on: March 21, 2017, 09:24:33 pm
There's no guarantee that Sharron Angle would win even if she got the nomination because northern Nevada is becoming less Republican by the minute and the House election is during a midterm with Donald Trump as President.

she could potentially squeak by in a crowded primary.

Color me skeptical

that's 23% of the vote right there! enough in a very crowded field to win. And the areas she did best in are in - you guessed it - Amodei's district!

For certain she would lose to Amodei and she would probably lose the primary, but this is close to a safe GOP district. When districts are Safe for one party, those primaries tend to be crowded unless there is an obvious successor to said incumbent.

Fair enough. Danny Tarkanian won in NV-3 with only 32% of the vote, I suppose his primary rival could accomplish the same feat.

Are you being facetious? Danny Tarkanian lost to Jacky Rosen.

I'm probably being biased as I'm stationed in southeastern Virginia, but I choose Virginia because it has a warmer climate and it's landscape is more beautiful.

I've met several politicians in the state, including Terry McAuliffe.

Fun fact: Seagal is a recognized tulku and, as of the beginning of this year, a Serbian citizen.

Update: After getting Serbian citizenship, Steven Seagal has also obtained the Russian citizenship last November.

Apparently, Seagal is a big friend of Comrade Putin.

So Steven Seagal hacked the DNC? *snickering*

Hollywood should make a Steven Seagal movie about hacking and the Russian Federation called "On the Line".
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Is there any evidence of Tim Scott losing/gaining votes because of his race? on: March 19, 2017, 11:02:26 pm
Not that I've ever seen. My understanfing is the black community in SC liked and respects him, even if most of them don't vote for him

He still gets some flak from some people in the black community because they see him as a traitor for being Republican.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Kirsten Gillibrand versus Donald Trump on: March 19, 2017, 10:58:00 pm
Let's say that Kirsten Gillibrand ran for president and somehow defeated Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries, how well does she fare against the Donald in the general election?

I'd say that she wins by a comfortable margin because she doesn't have all of Hillary Clinton's negatives and there isn't much Donald Trump, who is a horrible candidate, can use against her.
23  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: The Great Wall staring Matt Damon on: March 19, 2017, 10:49:01 pm
Recently I saw this movie and it was fun to watch if you don't mind watching crap from Hollywood.

To summarize the movie's plot, Matt Damon's character and his buddy are looking for black powder (gunpowder) and they run into a bunch of soldiers fighting for the Song Dynasty. They are captured and they learn that the Great Wall of China was built to keep the Tao Tei, a race of feral reptiles of alien origin (not Mexico), at bay. The Tao Tei came to earth via a meteorite and are out to feed on humans. The soldiers of the Song Dynasty are barely successfully at fending them off, but couldn't make them pay for the wall. The Tao Tei are led by a queen that must be killed in order to ensure humanity's survival.

Matt Damon's character also meets the daughter of a military commander and sticks around in order to impress her and help defeat the Tao Tei. In an ending that is not a surprise to anyone who has seen a Hollywood film or most people in general, they kill the Tao Tei queen and save humanity.

The only thing that is surprising about the movie is that Matt Damon's character doesn't even kiss the love interest.
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Senator Tom Carper (DE-D) undecided on re-election in 2018 on: March 19, 2017, 01:51:45 pm
herein lies the problem with Delaware - their entire political culture is pretty wack.

you can't just leave us hanging like that.

And why is everyone so sure that Markell isn't running?

He probably runs if we get a surprise retirement from Carper, but why would he primary Carper?

You're right, it doesn't make sense for Jack Markell to primary Tom Carper because Democrats are more likely to work together.

Unless Tom Carper or Lisa Blunt Rochester (unlikely) retire in 2018, Jack Markell isn't running for a new office anytime soon.
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Senator Tom Carper (DE-D) undecided on re-election in 2018 on: March 18, 2017, 10:43:47 pm
Jack Markell is definitely not going to run for anything in the near future. Several years down the road, he might run.

The articles I just read about Lisa Blunt Rochester make me think she would be pretty good.  I doubt she would primary Carper though since she interned for him years ago.  I wouldn't be surprised to see her run for the seat in 2024.

Tom Carper is her mentor and has supported her run for the House seat, so you're definitely correct that she's not going to primary him.
