1  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Barack Obama vs. Volume 10: Jimmy Carter on: Today at 11:28:24 am
Hard to believe I'm the only I/O Carter voter.
2  General Politics / Individual Politics / Which 2016 Republican was the closest to a FF? on: Today at 11:05:40 am
Trump has already won, and the polls in the 2016 board have deemed all of these guys as HP's, but who is the least of an HP?
3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Opinion of the Drop-Outs: John Kasich on: Today at 10:55:40 am

Vote while I wait for Sanders to drop.
4  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: So the Lichtman Test so far on: Today at 09:04:43 am
Here's what Lichtman himself said back when this thread started, with an update:

1. False, of coruse
2. Sanders needs 1590 and he has 1409, so False.
3. Neither Trump nor Clinton is the current president, False.
4. True
5. True, There isn't a recession right now, and I don't think one will start this summer.
6. True
7. False, Obama hasn't done anything as drastic as he did in his first term
8. True, There hasn't been major social unrest
9. True, Obama's clean
10. True, no big failures
11. False, Cuba is irrelevant and Iran is unpopular.
12. False, Clinton is not charismatic nor did she even serve in the military.
13. True, Trump may be charismatic, but he's no Reagan or Kennedy

That's 7 True, 6 False. Unless Obama does some God-tier foreign policy change Trump is the next president.
5  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is VP speculation the worst part of a campaign? on: Today at 08:42:14 am
Yeah, the VP should be the guy who gets 2nd in the primary (except in re-election years).

Trump/Cruz vs. Clinton/Sanders isn't going to happen.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: So the Lichtman Test so far on: Today at 02:34:54 am
Isn't the charisma one so subjective as to render it useless?

The whole test is, so that no matter what happens, the test is always right.
How is  the number of seats in the House subjective?
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Congrats President Hillary Clinton on: May 03, 2016, 11:04:47 pm
See the Litchman test. Her chances aren't that swell.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: So the Lichtman Test so far on: May 03, 2016, 09:18:38 pm
Now that the nominees are pretty much in the bag, what does it look like now?
9  General Politics / Individual Politics / Barack Obama vs. Volume 10: Jimmy Carter on: May 03, 2016, 09:08:23 pm
This one should be interesting. Carry on.

Obama because he's not a failure.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Opinon of the Drop-Outs: Ted Cruz (Now with Both and Neither as Options) on: May 03, 2016, 09:03:44 pm

Evil.
12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Barack Obama vs. Volume 9:Gerald Ford on: May 01, 2016, 03:38:08 pm
Obama faces the president who lived the longest life so far, Gerald Ford.

Next Opponent is Carter.

If anyone ever starts a sentence with "If you're really a 'Christian', you believe..." it's best to ignore the river of bullsh**t that is about to come flooding down upon you.

14  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is the Republican party a racist party? on: May 01, 2016, 11:40:19 am
Yes, and it has been since the Dixiecrats started dying off and the parties changed platforms.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Religious Freedom in Missouri bill dies in committee on: May 01, 2016, 11:35:04 am
Well, you guys see, a lot of people believe that homosexuality is a sin and don't want to support any of it. Because religion is the main reason people oppose homosexuality, religious people want their ability to practice what they believe. Forcing people to go against their religion isn't a good thing. (most of the time, some cults believe that vaccines are bad and support polygamy, but they aren't as vocal in their oppositions)

Except, according to Christian scripture, everybody is a sinner. Who makes homosexuality so bad of a sin compares to others? You (in general) might think homosexuality is a sin, then you'll get your mistress pregnant and push for her to have an abortion.

Was scripture not justified during slavery and segregation? What about with women's rights?

This is just like Roe V. Wade. Being the sore losers conservatives are, they cannot abolish gay marriage altogether, so they'll look for other ways to undermine the gays.

Those laws only applied to the Jews of their day or only applied in the society they lived in during both Testaments.

Okay so you're saying that those laws only applied to a "different time." Well, it's 2016, this IS a different time, and the archaic biblical scriptures of which you speak do not apply today. You can't have it both ways. If you're really a "Christian," you believe the Bible is infallible and that every single word of it must be followed; therefore, you must believe that adulterers should be stoned and that men shouldn't shave and that women shouldn't be teachers and that children who stray away from their religion should be punished and that you must believe it's okay to give your virgin daughters away for them to be raped. That's all in the Bible. The Bible also says that we shouldn't eat lobster or wear clothes of mixed fabrics.

Once again, only applied to the Jews of their day, especially the punishments.  That's the reason Jesus died in the first place. Considering how many varieties of Christianity there are, that "if you really are a Christian" statement doesn't apply either by fallacy.

I'm not a full supporter of these bills, I just want people to see a deeper reason why someone would support them. These people are genuine in their belief, they don't want to cater to a same sex wedding. In fact, I know people who refuse to perform one. And the bills should only apply to religious organizations anyway.

Various sources are saying that Will Ferrell isn't going to do it anymore.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Religious Freedom in Missouri bill dies in committee on: April 30, 2016, 01:38:08 pm
S/O to those three freedom Republicans Smiley

Freedom Republicans support bills like this.

How is discrimination against groups of people freedom?

It gives the right to practice religions without government interference.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: "Who would fictional characters vote for?" omnibus thread on: April 29, 2016, 11:30:26 pm
Now for the Sequel!

Hajime Hinata: As the most average guy ever, he votes for whoever he thinks will win.
Nagito Komeada: Knowing his luck and how it works, he probably switched between candidates of both sides. Currently he's a Sanders supporter, but in the general he's undecided.
Fat Byakuya Togami: Skipping him as to avoid spoilers.
Gundham Tanaka: His 8th Grader Syndrome makes him write himself in.
Kazuichi Souda: Cruz?
Teruteru Honamura: He tries to get laid from at least one worker for all candidates. Of cours, he fails and just votes for whoever his family votes for.
Nekomaru Nidai: Sanders, he wants everyone to be the best they can be (he is the Team Manager) and Sanders would provide everyone with good sleep, good food, and of course, a good $%#@.
Fuyuhiko Kuzuryu: He's a natural loner, so I doubt he bothers to vote.
Akane Owarri: Clinton. Would say Sanders but her being brown gives me the Clinton edge.
Chiaki Nanami: She spends election day playing "The Political Machine" all day as her title is the SDHS/SHSL/Ultimate Gamer.
Sonia Nevermind: She's a princess from a foreign country. I doubt they have elections in Novoselic anyway.
Hiyoko Saionji: Trump, she likes killing animals and being mean.
Mahiru Koizumi: Probably Sanders I guess. She takes pictures of happy people, not war.
Mikan Tsumiki: Sanders since she's a nurse and supports Universal healthcare.
Ibuki Mioda: Swing voter. Her taste in music varies so I bet her votes do too.
Peko Pekoyama: Doesn't vote, or votes with Kyuzuru if he ever voted.

Monomi: Sanders
Monokuma: Write-In: Junko Enoshima.

Apparently Republicans decided to stay home for this poll.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: "Who would fictional characters vote for?" omnibus thread on: April 29, 2016, 10:08:03 pm
Have you played the games, or just watched the anime? The anime toned down how evil Togami is.

Yeah, I just watched the anime, so that explains that.

Play the game if you liked it-sure you already know all the answers, but the game lets you get to know the characters more. It's on the PSVita and Steam.

Basiclly a bunch of people got upset with the moderators of this board for reasons both valid and blunk, and decided to start their own forum. Users banned from here are allowed there (except for maybe Eingzie, I think he was banned for being a Neo-Nazi) and BushOklahoma's Update series has its own subforum. The discussions are also more organized, and there are a few collection threads of various news.

Enter Sandman by Metallica, of course.
