1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which state has the worst name? on: Today at 06:22:04 pm
mariana post?  mariana postal? 

While we're at it, wouldn't AR be more appropriate for Arizona?  You guys are bigger than Arkansas.  You could kick their asses and take AR away from them if you really wanted to. 

We've always preferred 'AZ', but Arkansas became a state before us, so they got 'AR'. On another note, we can take 'AR', Arkansas can take 'AK', and Alaska can get stuck with 'AS'.

If I recall correctly, Jacky Rosen is the head of a synagogue, right? Very interesting profile, and I don't think one that's been in Congress before. I'd like to see her be elected there.

Yes, it's an interesting profile. I've thought that heads of synagogues would be male. I wonder what branch she is part of (Reform?).

There are rabbis that have run for Congress in recent years and lost for some reason.

Surprised nobody mentioned West Virginia. They should have named it something original.

They actually considered naming it Kanawha, but for whatever reason, they went with West Virginia.

Here's an off-topic question: why is "MP" the postal abbreviation for the Northern Mariana Islands? It would make more sense if it was "NI" or "MR".

Harry Reid should be sued for being such a nasty human being.

Kentucky should be sued for being such a terrible state.

Where is this coming from and how is Kentucky so terrible?

It's terrible because it won't vote for Hillary Clinton.

Well, it voted for her in the primary.

If it makes you feel any better, that bastard is leaving office in January.
7  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas Abortion Restrictions on: June 27, 2016, 06:29:29 pm
Worst day in America in years!

I mean, I know Republicans have not exactly been known to care about gay people, but wouldn't you say that Orlando, at the very least, is worse than this, if not other days?

No, Orlando killed 49 innocent people.  Abortion kills 3000 innocent people each day (and more than 49 of them would have likely been saved in one day alone by upholding the Texas laws).  January 22, 1973 is the darkest day in the history of this country, hands down.

Foetuses are not persons.

Uh, they each have the potential to become one?
8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Capitals of states on: June 26, 2016, 05:23:04 pm
My hometown happens to be the capital of Arizona. Phoenix is the largest state capital and the sixth largest city in the United States. It actually has more people than entire states like Alaska and Delaware.

People think of Arizona as a backwater even though it is fairly urbanized and is growing in terms of population. Out of the top fifty cities in population in America, three of them are in the state. Its capital has more people than some states for God's sake.

I remember one time I saw an ad for the Phoenix Comic-con and it had a picture of a toppled saguaro cactus. How about putting a picture of the Phoenix skyline you jerks?!

Republican: Don't use the word "macaca" when running and you better hope that your opponent is a poor candidate.

Democrat: Drive up turnout in northern Virginia, the Richmond area, and the Democratic parts of Hampton Roads (Portsmouth, Norfolk, and Newport News). Also, get the ex-felons registered to vote since Governor Terry McAuliffe rightfully restored their voting rights (I'm not being sarcastic).

11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Which state has the worst name? on: June 23, 2016, 11:40:57 pm
I'd say Idaho has the worst name. The name came when George Willing, a mining lobbyist, pulled it out of his ass and said it was the Shoshone word meaning "gem of the mountains". Seriously.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Can Donald Trump win without Ohio? on: June 21, 2016, 11:11:51 pm
Conventional wisdom states that not one Republican has won the presidency without winning Ohio.

I'd say he can pull it off, but it just won't happen.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Scott Baio Wonders If Obama Is a Muslim Who Wants to ‘Eliminate’ the Country on: June 21, 2016, 11:05:21 pm
Can someone explain how questioning President Obama's religious beliefs and/or ideology is a form of insanity?
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Scott Baio Wonders If Obama Is a Muslim Who Wants to ‘Eliminate’ the Country on: June 20, 2016, 05:24:06 pm
Personally, I believe President Obama is a possible atheist who is pretty far-left and has bizarre political views, but Scott Baio's views on him are just nutty.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Utah being a competitive state on: June 20, 2016, 05:19:27 pm
P2016 UT (Salt Lake Tribune): Trump 35%, Clinton 35%, Johnson 13%.

What do you guys think? I think Donald Trump is in trouble if Utah could even be within striking distance for Hillary Clinton.
16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Congressman Randy Forbes loses to former SEAL Scott Taylor on: June 16, 2016, 06:03:27 pm
I went to his victory party in Virginia Beach last night several minutes before 8:00 PM. Congressman Scott Rigell, Chesapeake mayor Alan Krasnoff, and former Virginia governor Bob McDonnell showed up for the occasional. Ten minutes later, Randy Forbes finally showed up, walked in and shook the hands of supporters on the way to the podium. When he got to the podium, he gave a short speech and announced that he had lost. After that, he left the place. 

True story.
Holy crap lol.

Yes, and it seems like Bob McDonnell is everywhere.

Seriously, what the hell?!

All people are responsible for their own actions, so don't blame President Obama for Omar Mateen's actions.

The guy lost even though he had nearly everything going for him and was endorsed by everyone and their grandmother.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are Republican governors more likely to get news coverage? on: June 14, 2016, 10:58:19 pm
Do you mean in national media?  I think most governors get a lot of coverage in their own state.  They don't get covered outside their state because not many people care about politics in other states.  They only get covered by national media if there's some crisis, scandal or if there's an issue that can be sensationalized to piss a bunch of people off because that's how the national media makes money.  Republican governors are probably more likely to do things that the media can sensationalize.

Yes, I meant in the national media. Sorry for forgetting to specify that.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is Larry Craig Gay? on: June 14, 2016, 10:55:40 pm
He could be bisexual, so this question is not as straightforward as you might think.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Are Republican governors more likely to get news coverage? on: June 13, 2016, 07:29:25 pm
It seems like whenever a sitting governor gets any news coverage, it is usually a Republican. The most recent ones (as far I can remember) are Rob Bentley, Rick Snyder, Susana Martinez, and Terry McAuliffe. Out of the four mentioned, only one is a Democrat.
23  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: X-Men: Apocalypse on: June 13, 2016, 05:58:44 pm
The X-Men movies have a fine tradition of ruining mutant characters.

I'm not surprised that Wolverine made an appearance in this installment. He's even in X-Men First Class. The part that is surprising is that Wolverine didn't have a role in stopping Apocalypse.
24  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Dan Sullivan seeks to join Dan Sullivan as Alaska's Senator on: June 08, 2016, 05:54:43 pm
Someday perhaps Arkansas state rep. Dan Sullivan might run for Senate as well.  At that point they could start up the Dan Sullivan Caucus.

Dan Sullivan (R-Ak.)
Dan Sullivan (R-Ak.)
Dan Sullivan (R-Ark.)

For what it's worth, there were two congressmen named Mike Rogers in the House not too long ago.
25  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: X-Men: Apocalypse on: June 07, 2016, 06:33:30 pm
I thought X-Men: Apocalypse sucked and that the movie didn't do justice to the Apocalypse character. He looked kind of like a pushover whereas in the cartoons, he could give the X-Men a serious run for their money.

The next X-Men movie is definitely going to feature Mister Sinister.
