1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would Donald Trump react if Twitter went down indefinitely? on: August 31, 2016, 10:46:32 pm
That would be an unbelievable shocker, as shocking as the cancellation of Sam & Cat in 2014.

Age confirmed, <14 likely!

Look at his other posts in the "Last 5 states to be called", either a bad troll or delusional.
3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump will nake a major speech on immigration in Arizona on Wednesday. on: August 31, 2016, 10:32:16 pm
Watching the families of people who died at the hands of illegal aliens was hard to watch. I see why they back Trump, but the devotion to him was a bit unsettling.

I understand why they're devoted to him.  THEIR government failed them.  Not just their Federal Government, but, in some case their "Sanctuary City" local government which, quite frankly, obstructed justice.

These people are sick and tired of folks whining about people who come here illegally needing to "come out of the shadows", or concern about "keeping families together", or how (from Jeb!'s mouth to my ears) it's an "act of love" to crash the border and enter America.  They endure these discussions watching the news in the face of their own experiences and rightly conclude that political elites that benefit from illegal immigration not only don't care about these people's pain, but find them a nuisance and hope they go away.  I'm sure that at least some of them hoped that someone other than Donald Trump would stand up for them, but they're glad that he did.  Hillary Clinton couldn't care less about these folks; they cramp HER talking points.

What's the difference between the Angel Moms on stage with Trump and the Khans?  The difference is that while the Khans endured tragedy, their government did not fail them.  Captain Khan enlisted in the military; he signed up for the possibility of being killed in action.  All of our military do, in reality.  My second son did, and served in Afghanistan; he could have come home dead, and I'm thankful to God that he didn't.  Trump's Angel Moms are a different story; they are all cases of folks whose government failed to protect citizenry, and the cases that involve "sanctuary cities" are the most egregious failures of government not fulfilling its first duty to its citizens.

Most of these people have no contact with minorities. They're the bogeyman in the shadows who's doing "all the crime" and "taking our jobs". Made up fears to make up for their lack of education or job skills.

So, have we reached peak Trump yet?

Bannan hasn't started his Prime Trump campaign in full yet, tonight is just the start.

This man and his followers are monsters.
Everyone who wants secure the border is fascist!

Big difference between "we need to secure the boarder" and "we will built a huge, deficit increasing wall and deport everyone in the country no matter what and Mexicans are evil".

I'm at work, but judging from the Hillary hack comments I assume trump must have given a great speech

Sieg Heil!

How much you want to bet Bannon wrote this speech, no way in hell Conway green lighted this hot mess.

Lets hope that the Bannon month(s) begin now, it'll tank whatever ground he has recovered.

9  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Which national pizza chain do you prefer? on: August 31, 2016, 06:55:48 pm
Toppers is in IL so if multi state counts, then by all means count it. My only negative with Toppers is that for chains I often just want a good slice of pizza for lunch (or dinner if on the road), and they don't do that - at least not near me. I like Rosati's for that reason. They are still mostly in Chicagoland but they now list locations in 10 states in addition to IL. I can count on driving up and getting a decent single slice to take out.
I'm close friends with the guy that owns Toppers, I asked him once why they don't sell slices, He said it's a quality issue.

They do sell pretty small personal pizzas, so while more than a slice you can get a small portion.

Liberals using the rape of men to score points is truly a sight to behold, because it's usually the other side who brings it up. The usual argument is that it is a marginal enough phenomenon to be irrelevant in such discussions.

I wouldn't touch this with a ten-foot pole, but I'm not sure why it's wrong to acknowledge that most men are physically stronger than most women, and that rape would be a considerably lesser problem if this were not the case-- although, not, as Conway (who, it's worth reminding you all, is the most dangerous woman in America today) said, to the point of eliminating it entirely. "Victim-blaming" is another issue entirely, and I wouldn't touch that even with a fifty-foot pole. The headline severely distorts what she said.

No it doesn't, she said:

I'm interested to see the crosstabs, but if I had to guess, Trump has recovered in the WOW region. Even then, I still think a candidate who's favorables are 28/63 just simply can't win the state. There's not enough Obama/Walker voters to get him over the top.

Most of the WOW county R's will come around. They don't like Trump but they HATE Hillary, and she's a Dem so their hatred of the left will overcome most of their dislike of Trump in the end, but I imagine he'll get a much lower share of that vote.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: WI-Marquette: Clinton +3 on: August 31, 2016, 12:52:04 pm
LA Times still is JUUUUUUNK!!!111

Yes it is.
That its trend was highly consistent, does not count, huh? OK. We'll wait for ABC nationall poll. Don't be shocked when it shows the same trend Smiley

Don't be shocked when Trump gets crushed on Election Day.
I am not the one who denies the polls Smiley

That's Trump who does that.

Glorious news from the gold standard in Wisconsin. The surge is real!

Trump isn't going to win WI. When everyone votes in Presidential election years it's now out of reach, especially for someone like Trump.

Johnson still has some potential to mount a comeback since his job performance rating registers a net positive of 44% approve and 38% disapprove.  However, Feingold is better known and better liked overall.  Voters’ personal ratings of Feingold stand at 46% favorable and 26% unfavorable, with 28% having no opinion.

An incumbent Senator with a net +6 approval rating trailing by 13 points. Looks like WI still thinks Feingold is the incumbent. Wink

Johnson has been trying to paint Feingold as the bad career politician and tries not to say to "re-elect" him, just to "elect him" so maybe it's working haha

What she meant is If women, men had equal POWER, 'rape would not exist' .

Would Monica do the same if she was a President and Clinton is an aspirant? No! This man used his power to get a free blowjob. Disgrace! Sad

Lol, you can't read!

16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Jimmy Dore: Trump will lead to Dem majorities in 2018, real progressive in 2020 on: August 31, 2016, 10:02:02 am
Dems will have a trio of Gubernatorial gains in 2018 in IL, MI & WI which will lead to progressive gerrrymandering in 2021.

Let's not forget prime pickup opportunities in Florida and Nevada.

Except if 36% vote again then you can probably kiss all but IL and MI goodbye.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary pays her full taxes...does Trump? on: August 31, 2016, 08:05:45 am
Should pass a law, to run for President you need to release the last 5-10 years of your tax returns, if you don't you can't run.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How credible is the "Shy Trump voter" theory on: August 31, 2016, 06:34:34 am
Generally Trump's voters are very proud of their racist orange moron. The ones that are quietly supporting him don't want to be known for supporting the racist but they're a big minority of his supporters.

Clinton's supporters are generally quieter because they got torn apart by Berniebros in the primaries and now get torn apart by Trumpers now.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Prediction: Trump's vote % in NYC, Chicago, SF on: August 30, 2016, 07:43:31 pm
I'd guess about 8% in San Francisco, 11% in Chicago, and 16% in New York City.

Worse than Romney in his home city?

Diverse, metropolitan city where he's been pandering to low educated white nationalists, not hard to see how he's hated there.
20  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Pokemon Go is starting to look like a flop on: August 30, 2016, 06:07:30 pm
Is this a surprise?  I thought the consensus was that it was a fad with no more than six weeks staying power, if that.

The consensus was the people who weren't actually fans but played back in the day and the other casual people playing would always desert in that time period. Actual Pokémon fans (which there are many millions) would keep playing.


I guess I picked a bad time to start playing. Tongue But I almost caught a Gengar!

Plenty of people still playing, aka actual Pokémon fans. The casuals will be on to the next fad.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Paul LePage leaves expletive-filled voicemail for state lawmaker. on: August 30, 2016, 12:00:35 pm
Just goes to show what kind of rhetoric becomes acceptable when we demonize political correctness and let it be "cool" to be politically incorrect.  The people of Maine elected this man and re-elected him and I am sure they would re-elect him again if given the chance.  This kind of rhetoric is not a bother to them; who cares about political correctness?  After all, it's not like this rhetoric coming from our government officials is dangerous or anything!

Still didn't get >48% of the vote either time. If turnout and no Independent glory seeker ran he probably would have lost both times.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What will the margin be amongst college-educated whites? on: August 30, 2016, 08:16:29 am
I think it'll be about 10-12% for Clinton. The "shy Trump" voter should really be called the "I don't want people to think I'm racist even though I am voter because it would hurt me" voter.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump FB Post: Trump +71 with white evangelicals on: August 30, 2016, 06:26:25 am
It's not about who's most religious in this case. It's about how much the evangelicals hate Hillary. Also, not all evangelicals are very religious weekly churchgoers anymore. Some of them just keep the label. In the republican primary, Trump was often slightly leading Cruz among evangelicals despite seeming like a terrible fit for religious people. Interestingly, Trump does do worse with weekly church goers than those who go monthly or yearly which makes sense considering his despicable character in direct conflict with many Christian principles.

Which is as anti-Christian as you can get. Jesus said to love your neighbor and forgive everyone. We've all known for a long time a huge segment of Evangelicals are horrible people/Christians and don't actually follow Jesus like they all say they do.

25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: HRC & Byrd on: August 26, 2016, 09:01:15 am
Of course, Trump can change his views every week and it's fine.

You Trump hacks are really sad. Just own your racism, that'd at least be more honest.

Come on Gustaf, didn't you know, liberals are never allowed to change their minds but conservatives are and are just being prosecuted by the liberal media.
