Bernie is auditioning for Trump's VP slot.

Clinton projected to win the fake primary.

Source?

AP.

Here's an idea, how about we outlaw beauty contests? They're really nothing but a waste of money, and only give us unrepresentative data. I'm saying that as someone who voted in this.

I think caucuses should be abolished. Washingtonians had about 3 weeks to vote in this primary. In the caucus, they had about 3 hours.

Can't really bully anyone with a secret ballot either.

If there was actually campaigning before this fake primary sure, but there wasn't, so this means nothing.

So all the Bernie Bros just threw out that official ballot they got in the mail? Doesn't sound like a revolution to me.

The fact people are caring about a fake primary is laughable.

Proves we need to get rid of caucuses, undemocratic.

So it seems like this is proof we need to make caucuses illegal, no?

National polls really don't matter if you lose all the swing states. Huge margins in the south and mountain west won't do anything.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could the Sandernistas hand Donald Trump the White House? on: May 19, 2016, 03:30:18 pm
Clinton supporters would like to blame Sanders; it's a shame, they think it's ok to be really nasty to Sanders supporters and then expect them crawling back begging for forgiveness for not following their Borg collective, in the first place. Everyone is free to vote their conscience, but no because most Sanders supporters will likely vote for Clinton. No sane person wants Trump to be POTUS for obvious reasons.

Some Sanders supporters won't vote for Clinton because they wouldn't have in the first place.
That is neither the fault of most Sanders supporters, and certainly not the fault of Sanders himself, who cares about the future of this country and is doing his best to get elected POTUS which has been his only objective all along; it's a shame Clinton supporters can't see that.

Clinton should be thanking Sanders and his supporters, they have given her the opportunity she otherwise would not have had, to get her message out there.

Completely ignores the fact that anyone who doesn't support Sanders is labeled a "Hillary shill" and any news that's true that doesn't support their view is "part of the main stream media that's holding us down and lying" and that "Hillary can't win any states without fraud". Oh and don't forget "why are black people so stupid and not voting for Sanders?".
When have I ever said any of those things?
By the way, I shouldn't have generalized. This is not most Clinton supporters.
But it seems to be the way the majority of Clinton supporters are behaving
on this forum

I wasn't quoting you. Just saying you're ignoring that fact. Go on any social media and you'll see that kind of posting from the majority of Sanderistas.

I know most of us would rather the govt keep throwing money down the drain, Elon Musk is moving forward with his idea.

So how long until it turns in to him begging the government to pay for most of it?

I'd stick with the bullet train, costs more but it's proven and after Musk gets board it'll still have funding.
11  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of Pokemon (20th Anniversary Special!) on: May 18, 2016, 09:16:46 pm
Being a kid in the late 90s and early 00s, I was infected with Pokémania, too. I cherished the Game Boy games and also loved the first two seasons of the anime. What's more, I even drank a soft drink whose taste I didn't particularly like (Mirinda) just to collect the Pokémon bottle tops that came with it, haha! I still have them, by the way. Eventually, I started to get bored with both the anime and the games because I felt that it's the same thing rehashed again and again (and partly because I thought at the time that I had outgrown it). Also, I didn't like that the music in Ruby and Sapphire sounded more "polished". I guess it's because I'm used to the "rough" themes of the previous generations. The last game I played was Sapphire and the last season I watched was Johto League Champions. My favourite game generation is Gold and Silver (both Johto and Kanto in one game, amazing!) and my favourite season is the very first one (Team Rocket seemed like they could actually steal Pikachu!).

If you enjoyed the Game Boy games but didn't like the anime, you should give Pokémon Origins a try. It's an anime that is much more faithful to the Game Boy games (e.g. no Ash Ketchum!). There are only four episodes, in which they focused on the most interesting parts (departure in Pallet Town; first gym battle in Pewter City; creepy Lavender City with Mr. Fuji, Cubone, Cubone's Mother and Team Rocket Grunts; 1st battle against Giovanni in Silph Co.; 2nd battle against Giovanni in Viridian City gym; final battle against Blue after the Elite Four; Mewtwo). I liked watching it, but I wish there were more episodes.

Pokémon video game music for a rush of nostalgia: https://www.youtube.com/user/pokemonmusicmaster/playlists

Anime has gotten a lot better lately with DP and XY (AG was very good with a second female quest), blip in between with BW but to be fair it was a new director and plan. But overall the story is tighter, more character development, better plots, Developing the Pokémon and evolving more.

I don't know why people are so crazy about Origins. It really makes no sense in a real way (Pokémon just stand there and take damage), literally only Charizard used by Red who was a Mary Sue. But it's "more mature" so I guess that's it.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Note to fanatic Hillary supporters..........she is no longer "inevitable". on: May 18, 2016, 11:06:44 am
She's inevitable. Bernie has had disappointing wins in IN, WV and OR and likely could have won KY which was friendly to him.

He's going to be thrashed in NJ and DC and lose CA and NM from 6-10% and possibly SD.

Bernie and Trump need to be punished.

Oregon is feeling the BERN! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley

Sites showing 10% margin with 77% in and Dave showing <10% with higher numbers. Awful showing by Bernie. Need to remove those undemocratic caucuses and he won't win states by 40% outside of Vermont.

I suspect the Sanderistas will riot, if not inside, outside. Likely try and riot on the inside too and demand the supers overthrow the will of the people.

Crowd is like a rabid mob. Disgusting. Do people really think he's done more good than harm?

Bernie "white resentment" Sanders whipping up more white kids into violence and rioting while scamming them out of their money. I'm not sure whether to compare him to a televangelist or a fascist.

It's funny to watch them give, and then increase what they give after each primary. "Gave another $5 on top of my normal $50 donation, he's going to do it!". Poor kids, should be putting that towards the college debt.

Bernie only winning Portland by 8% points. 

Sad!

Would be landsliding if it was a closed caucus. Primaries allow people to vote privately and not be bullied by the Sanderistas.

Glitch fixed, Sanders barely up in Marion. Up a little over 5% overall.

Honestly, I don't see MasterJedi's point here. He's a Republican who has been making a lot of posts recently whining about a candidate from the opposite party who has virtually no chance at the nomination. It's like if a Democrat was consistently going on and on about how horrible John Kasich is.

I've said numerous times I'll vote for Clinton over Trump, I won't vote for Sanders though (or Trump in that case) so I have vested interest.

Take that Sanders!

Now if a hilarious upset could happen in Oregon (yeah, I know, not going to happen).

After Sanders gets his voters to vote Clinton and the election is over he should be stripped of seniority and put on all the crap committees that nobody cares about. He needs to be punished.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Democratic KY / OR primary results thread (first polls close at 6pm ET) on: May 17, 2016, 07:39:16 pm
As a Clinton supporter, it annoys/concerns me how much rural and Conservative Democrats have abandoned her in Appalachia. Why would they vote for a socialist anyway? They don't agree with his policies certainly.

They never liked her. They voted for her because she wasn't the black guy. John Edwards would've beaten them both in a landslide.

Oh, I know. They have no idea how Clinton didn't win like she did in 08. The anti-black vote became the anti-establishment Sanders vote. So he's winning a lot of racists right now and they're proud of it.

Sanderistas are getting big woodies for Trump right now because he'll " Clinton and CNN hard" and that "Blacks are screwing us over". Real progressives right there folks!
25  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Winter is Coming (GoT is back) on: May 16, 2016, 09:55:28 pm
Love how they trolled the fans for a week about Jon Snow.

Either way we need George RR Martin to get off his fat lazy ass and write the next two books. He's gotten caught up in his own fame and worthless blogging, every normal person would have been fired long ago. Send out the goon squads and beat him until he finishes it.
and it's got nothing to do with fame, he took forever to write sh**t before the fame too.

First 3 books written in 4 years, then they became popular and he started slacking. Next 2 books 11 years, up to 5 years now, likely a year or two more before the next book, it's pathetic.

There are better authors who can put out a book every year or every other year. That's because they treat writing as their job and write 8 hours a day instead of blogging.

As for Malcolm X, yes he does owe us. He signed a contract and is supposed to do his job and write the book. Last year he said he "put away all his side projects and conventions to write seriously" meaning he's been faffing about for the last few years not caring. Any regular person would be fired a long time ago. He's also doesn't care about the story either, said if he does he will make it so no one can finish his books.



Lol! Fat bastard doesn't care about the series anymore. He cares about blogging random crap and making money and taunts fans who want his books. They should suspend the show and withhold any money from him until he completes his contractual obligations, much better authors such as Brandon Sanderson write so much faster because they treat their work like a job, write 6-8 hours a day instead of going "trolololol".

Current pace Winds of Winter will be finished in 2018-2019 or so and the last book around at that pace would be 2025+, likely a lot longer. Also ignores the fact that the first three books were written very well while the last two were much lower quality.
