One of the greatest states in the nation just by virtue of it's history and long support (except recently Sad) of the rights of the working class.

How can you not vote FF?

I voted HS, partly in protest of WV's results.

Do not be surprised if you wake up some morning to find that your head has been turned to cheese by a vengeful shaman.

Bush, because Ross Perot is a crazy person who could barely manage his campaign and, despite the best efforts of his handlers, refused to learn anything about policy aside from what he already knew. (Which, apparently, he thought was everything.)

Anchorage is closer the population center of the state. Proximity to the state's geographic center is not important when almost all of its land area is unpopulated wilderness.

Either would be better than Juneau, though.

Bill Clinton had a good economical record but I think that Obama's accomplishments are greater. Just imagine this my friends: Obama being elected in 1992 Wink

Ugh god, Obama.

Say what you want about how much of a disappointment Obama is, at least he pretends to be liberal.  As opposed to Clinton, who by 1996 was trying to outracist and out drug war his Republican opponent.

I would add the general incompetence of the Clinton White House to these answers as my reason for voting for Obama.

How many of you would have included Christie in your top three a month ago, I wonder?

A lot of people mentioning Martinez but what has she actually done notable as Governor other than her being female and Hispanic.

She shows no signs of corruption, has never been hit with a major scandal, and has generally run her state competently. She also signed a major education reform bill, IIRC, but the conservatives who are voting for her here could probably tell you more about that and how it figures into their assessments.

My choices would be Jerry Brown, John Hickenlooper, and John Kitzhaber.

I've been finding tea to be a useful substitute for coffee, soft drink, and alcohol alike.

I suggested this a few pages ago, but he'd probably dump so much sugar into it'd barely make a difference. Still, if he managed to gradually reduce it until he wasn't adding any at all (or only a small amount), it'd be a healthy change.

What an awful idea. Plastic bags clog drains and choke, trap, and poison both livestock and wild animals. Moreover, they take hundreds of years to biodegrade and are lightweight enough to travel thousands of miles, so this will affect neighboring regions as well.

I usually reserve the headlight flash for warning other drivers of deer ahead.

I know that this process will never change, but surely you can see that this is all pretty silly.

I'm sure that you're correct on the first count, but I suspect that the second underestimates the excuse-making capability of those who disagree. Either way, it's unfortunate that we've always been prevented from making this simple fix.

Can you set the record straight regarding your views on miscegenation?

I'd appreciate an answer to my question, Mr. Reaganfan. BRTD claimed that you oppose interracial marriage, and I'm looking for clarification on whether he represented your views correctly.

Not at all.

So what are they?

There's really no way to make the current set-up work.

Seems like a solid addition to the D-NY delegation.

FF, but I think he'd make an awful President.
1742  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you respect Hillary for staying with Bill? on: February 05, 2014, 09:32:37 am
I'm content to allow the Clintons to live their marriage on their terms, not mine. (Normal)
1743  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Clinton Nostalgia on: February 05, 2014, 09:30:29 am
Undeserved:

One of the luckiest presidents in American history. Had his tenure not coincided with eight years of relative international stability, economic prosperity, and insanity from the opposition party, people may have noticed that he wasn't especially competent.
1744  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The Glorious Airport Renaming Act of 2014 (Debating) on: February 05, 2014, 09:17:16 am
We should rename Ted Stevens Anchorage International after Lewis Trondheim.  Other than that, I'm not sure, though I'd lean against naming things after sitting officeholders.

Speaking as one of those sitting officeholders, I would be somewhat uncomfortable with the Senate naming an airport after me. I appreciate the gesture, and I agree that no one deserves it more than I, but it would be better reserved for my retirement. There's no shortage of great Atlasians who have already left office - think Lief, Nathan, Clarence, Purple State, and Ebowed, just to give a few examples.

I, for one, seemed to avoid the brunt of hazing or whatnot, largely because I don't think I said anything worth making a thread about. With that said, people thought I was a sock for a while precisely because I didn't really seem to out of place here; the coin goes both ways, I suppose.

I remember having sock accusations thrown at me during my first couple of months as a poster. It's a strange experience.
1746  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Labor Party Winter 2014 Convention on: February 04, 2014, 10:27:34 pm
Excellent. Now that most of us are here, let's begin discussing this month's elections.

As of this moment, we have three candidates running for re-election to the Senate in three different regions: Bore in the Northeast, Tyrion in the Pacific, and TNF in the Midwest.

In the Southeast, Yankee is seeking reelection unopposed. As we only have two active voters in the region and neither has made any indication that they'll be running, I do not expect that Labor will field a candidate.

In the Mideast, DC al Fine is seeking a full term following his appointment by Governor Spiral. He is opposed by JCL. Although Snowstalker has suspended his campaign, he has not removed his name from the ballot. If he does not, and no other Laborite chooses to run for this seat, he will receive the party's automatic endorsement.

Finally, and as I'm sure you know, we do not have have a candidate for President at this time. The election begins on February 21, and our endorsement vote will take place one week before that - assuming one is necessary. We have the next week-and-a-half to decide what to do.

The floor is open.

Oh, sh!t. I did not read that correctly on my phone. Disregard. My apologies.

It's a shame that it includes one of America's many great (lack of) planning disaster zones. Something that's particularly unforgivable when you consider that the people who live there are bureaucrats or exist to service bureaucrats.
most ironic thing is urbanist liberals masturbating to the prospect of more sprawl because it will turn Virginia blue or whatever

It's not surprising. No political group has a monopoly on ignorance of the principles of good urban design in this country.
1750  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: The White House: Duke/Matt administration on: February 04, 2014, 07:40:56 am
Will the administration be taking legal action against the Southeast in response to their unilateral nullification of federal law?
