As one who worked the system to try to save jmfcst, and yes, the only one whom I think played defense for him effectively, he was banned because he wanted to be banned, as he himself said - as a martyr, screw the terms of use in his mind - martyrdom was the thing - a veritable religious experience perhaps. And then has has socked, and socked, and socked. He is not coming back. The end.

Who cares if he's not old enough? He's certainly popular enough.

Based of a thead I made a long time ago.
Jackson met Nixon not Ford.

What?

Reagan had some moments of brilliance, despite everything.

Nixon is Hitler with less charm.

Reagan, he wasn't the most corrupt president in American history. He was also funny.

If the Christian version of God and Hell is true, I somehow doubt a loving and merciful God is going to go through your list, putting check marks next to all the good things, and then reach the "Is gay" or "Had gay sex" parts and give you 100 automatic death points, even if everything else is okay.

There are thousands of Christian denominations, thus there are thousands of versions of God and Hell, Some of which include one or even both of them not existing.

Truman's desegregation was certainly not a move made with electoral popularity in mind. I can't imagine many other politicians lighting that sort of firecraker in an election year.

He was certainly the first President to do anything significant for Civil Rights in a while, though you are correct Eisenhower shouldn't be dismissed for his positive legacy on the issue.

All the Presidents from FDR to LBJ made some progress on civil rights. But then Nixon had his southern strategy. And Reagan launched his Presidential campaign in Philadelphia, MS saying "I believe in states' rights". Pretty blatant dog whistle there.

And then legitimate states rights issues became hard to support.

Only 1 other McKinley voter? The whole reason he was shot was because he was too nice!
He was shot because he was seen by Revolutionary Anarchist Leon Czolgosz as a symbol of oppression. What did him being "too nice" have to do with anything?

Czolgosz had nothing against McKinley as a person. Seriously, they were greeting each other at a fair when the bullet was fired.

Well, there won't be any gays in heaven because it's a sin, and there won't be any sinners in heaven. The current gay people will not be gay in heaven.


That's probably the closest thing I can say while still going with his idea of homosexuality is a sin. I myself don't actually believe gays are sinners by virtue of existence like this guy.

Is there a chance of any of the Republican Governors on my list turning around? All of them are from SSM states.

The one who wasn't a White Supremacist.

I seriously don't know which one you are calling a white supremacist...

Truman.

2 Democrat Govenors oppose SSM: Mike Beebe (Arkansas), and Jay Nixon (Missouri)

11 Democratic Congressmen Oppose SSM: John Barrow, Sanford D. Bishop, Jr., Henry Cuellar, William Enyart, Pete Gallego ,Jim Matheson, Mike McIntyre, Collin C. Peterson, Nick Rahall, David Scott, and  Filemon Vela, Jr.

No Republican Govenors are Pro-SSM

2 House Republicans are Pro-SSM: Richard Hanna (New York) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Florida).

Wikipedia is your friend.

I figured I'd update this with so many new SSM states. People who represent SSM States are bolded.

Republicans in favor:

Senate
Susan Collins (Maine)
Mark Kirk (Illinois)
Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)

Rob Portman (Ohio)

House
Charlie Dent (Pennsylvania)
Richard Hanna (New York)

David Jolly (Florida)
Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (Florida)

Governors
None, but the following are not active in their opposition, all from SSM states.
Terry Branstad (Iowa)
Chris Christie (New Jersey)
Tom Corbett (Pennsylvania)
Mary Fallin (Oklahoma)
Gary Herbert (Utah)
Susana MartŪnez (New Mexico)
Pat McCrory (North Carolina)
Butch Otter (Idaho)
Mike Pence (Indiana)
Brian Sandoval (Nevada)

Democrats Against:

Senate
Joe Manchin (West Virginia)
Mark Pryor (Arkansas)

House
John Barrow (Georgia)
Sanford D. Bishop Jr. (Georgia)
Henry Cuellar (Texas)
William Enyart (Illinois)
Pete Gallego (Texas)
Dan Lipinski (Illinois)
Jim Matheson (Utah)
Mike McIntyre (North Carolina)
Nick Rahall (West Virgina)

Although Jay Nixon supports SSM, he doesn't support it in his own state.
