It's not a serious mental disorder, but military service gives almost all who serve actual serious mental disorders (PTSD, anxiety, depression, etc).

Sounds like the grifter is opening himself up to a yuge lawsuit, can't discriminate against people, he's going to lose on this and go nuclear. Hope this is a slap in the face and a wakeup call to the few people who thought he would be good for LGBT people.

He's probably the best Democrats are going to get, so that's good.

That's likely Vinehout.

Right, that "terrible take" that the majority agrees with.  The "terrible take" that asks for people to actually be found guilty of a crime before they are punished.  Compared to your take of.....ahhh, just bashing, no substance.

That's how it's supposed to be but everyone really is guilty until proven innocent. That's why all the people I saw who were cheering the prison let a jail get up to 109 and that they should just let the people die because they're criminals. Mind you it's a jail and not a prison so they're not even convicted. The first thought most people seem to have if someone is accused of any crime is "kill them".

Kelli Ward (a primary challenger to Jeff Flake next year) says McCain should step aside 'as quickly as possible' after cancer diagnosis: http://www.cnn.com/2017/07/21/politics/kfile-kelli-ward-mccain-diagnosis/index.html

She's cancer personified so maybe she should step aside 'as quickly as possible'?

My vote starts as Likely Vinehout, and I'll evaluate how she does when she campaigns and whatnot.

Well, actually not too bad if you consider that Christie's numbers are in the tank big league.

There will always usually be at least 30-35% for each party in any given state just based on polarization and partisanship.
8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trumpcare Megathread: 22 million more uninsured under new BCRA (w/o Cruz amen.) on: July 21, 2017, 11:52:10 am
The consensus appears to be on the right that whoever doesn't have health insurance after the law would pass would be because they don't want it and aren't forced to buy it. Roll Eyes
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why the hell do Republicans hate criminal justice reform? on: July 18, 2017, 11:08:33 pm
Because most working class whites don't give two craps about criminals. They joyfully share stories about crackheads accidentally blowing themselves up in a methlab and say things like "Good riddance".

Liberals and African Americans get angry and say "WHITE PEOPLE DON'T CARE WHEN A COP SHOOTS A BLACK CRIMINAL!"

Well...I'll tell you something else. White people don't care when a cop shoots a WHITE criminal, either. I think white working class voters are very anti-crime. Period.

I agree, need to crack down on all the WWC criminals out there that get off easy. Need to punish you guys just as harshly as the poor and minorities, 25 year stints for small offense and then maybe you'll open your eyes.

Should be close, he's not popular now, base is mad at him for proposing more funding for schools, he's basically killed any budget deal, bankrupted the state and is wanting to bond the wazoo for more road funding. He'll probably win, but it could be close.
Wisconsin ranks 29th in fiscal according to the Mercatus Institute. They are not in dire straights like you wrote.

Also, this.

Well there's really no money (Walker still claiming a surplus though), we can't pay for the roads for sure. Republicans are wanting to still keep cutting everything else since it can't be funded. They found more than what they thought, but still not enough.

But she's a white.

Which is why something will actually happen in this case.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Even Pussy Riot says there's been too much scapegoating of Putin on: July 18, 2017, 09:44:27 am
How can you look at all the recent revelations and say liberals are scape goating?
Because Jfern is a hack

Yep, pretty much.

Trump is just the kind of authoritarian the far left and jfern like, just not the politics part. That's why they have the love/hate affair with him.

Not a good number for Walker.

Who knew that failing to get a budget with full Republican control or being bankrupt for road funding and threatening to delay many projects would be bad for his approval rating?

Love the books/show but lazy fat schlub for not doing his job and finishing the books. Blogs about football instead.

Move to NYC, you won't have to drive ever and have public transportation. You sound like I wouldn't want you on the road.
17  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Peter Capaldi is leaving Doctor Who on: July 17, 2017, 02:26:28 pm
Really wanted the doctor to stay a man as I said before for the reasons I don't feel like re-typing. But I still love the show, Jodie Whittaker is a great actress, the show is still the same, I will keep watching and I'm sure she'll be great as The Doctor.
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 59% of Millennials Raised in a Church Have Left. 80% think Church not important on: July 14, 2017, 10:16:54 am
Proud to a part of this change. I was raised in a very strict Lutheran home, attended church weekly, attended Sunday School weekly, went to Vacation Bible School, did youth group, the whole works. I attended a Lutheran high school for all four years and then in my senior year, a few months before my graduation, I just lost my faith. I couldn't take the horrible teachings and hate being spewed from my teachers and classmates. It was too horrible to see and hear a constant denial of science and facts for beliefs purely based on faith and not on reason or science. Sure a lot of religion does do good, but most religious people I know are bigoted and too ignorant to see it. Once you walk away from religion you feel a true sense of freedom and see how crazy the things they fed you for years were. But, I do acknowledge there are many good, loving, open minded, smart Christians out there but they are quickly dropping in numbers.
I know a few strict Evangelicals, and I respect them, but have avoided asking about how they feel about the politicization of the Evangelical movement. I would like to ask them how they feel about it though, and how they feel about the increasing perception among younger generations that Evangelicals are intolerant towards people of other faiths, atheists, and feminists. I've heard that a number of young Evangelicals are rejecting the old Jerry Falwell brand of Evangelicalism, but I don't know how significant it is. The ones I know don't sound much different than Falwell.

Most would just probably be damn proud of it.

Will be thrown out, don't worry there kiddo.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Your President Trump brokers a cease fire deal in Syria with Russia. on: July 07, 2017, 01:45:09 pm
What's the over/under on Trump throwing some tweet tantrum that Putin didn't do what he wanted and kept bombing at random points because reasons? Just like when Obama and Kerry negotiated ceasefires that they disregarded when they wanted to.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CNN Falsely Claims Merkel Chose G20 Location To Hurt Trump on: July 07, 2017, 07:38:35 am
So it sounds like the Federalist published lies about CNN? Either way it seems the OP should prostrate himself before the dear leader.
22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: For the first time since 2015, Illinois will have a budget on: July 07, 2017, 07:02:52 am
Largest tax increase in Illinois history, common sense, sure....  perhaps to a tax and spend liberal!

Illinois will still be downgraded to JUNK status, its just been postponed.  We continue to circle the drain.  Even more taxpayers will now flee the state.  None of the structural problems have been addressed, and we will continue to be in the same position every year.  More, more, more money for the government for worse service every year.  The death spiral the state is currently in has just been worsened, no reason to celebrate.

You mean the "largest tax increase in state history" that just reverses some tax cuts to get them back to where they were a few years ago while still overall having the 19th lowest tax burden? Sounds like fearmongering, especially when we see how the "cut all the taxes and then borrow and spend out the wazoo" plan works in Kansas and Wisconsin.

Use eminent domain and take his house to pay for it. Would be a gut stab to the grifter.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NPR Tweeted Declaration Of Independence, Trump Supporters Flip Out on: July 06, 2017, 07:30:08 am
The declaration of independence is a disgusting document, it's well past time that someone stood up and said something.

I assume satire but why, if you're serious?

He's still salty about the Revolution

To be fair, you were a bunch of ungrateful colonials :')

To think how the world would be different if Britain had just given Americans seats in parliament.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NPR Tweeted Declaration Of Independence, Trump Supporters Flip Out on: July 05, 2017, 09:22:14 pm
They only care about the second amendment, the rest is trash to them, what do you expect?
wrong document ( ͡ ͜ʖ ͡)

Well, yes, I know that, but you get my point. Out of all the old documents they only care about that portion. Everything else is considered evil.
