I get offended when people tell me water is dry. Sorry.

Julian Castro or Cory Booker might matter, and I can't even say if that's positive or negative.

Otherwise it won't.

The St. Louis area PD really is every loser that got picked on high school with something to prove.

Wilson got hundreds of thousands of dollars... just for being... a nigger...

Wow really disrespectful in-out-of context post about SuperBowl champion Russell Wilson. IceSpear should be banned.

Wannabe Onion satirist Snowstalker was no doubt the worst one.

Also, it's so R-Money to unabashedly ruin a thousand dollar suit with ice water and laugh about it. The man's unhinged, the Mormon Yeezus.

The New Mexico Democratic Party is awful and I align with the Republicans in local elections. I was a big supporter of Dubya as well.

Politically, I support the conservative idea of eliminating bureaucracy but am against the Teabagger idea that there should not be wealth redistribution.

I consider myself aligned with Milton Friedman, who proposed replacing welfare programs with negative income tax, giving the poor money through the IRS without the need for intensive paperwork by other agencies. It's small government that doesn't screw the little guy.

Lawyers and accountants that try to prevent fraud in government programs at a higher cost than what fraudsters take are what make government programs dysfunctional in my opinion. It's not something today's Republicans care about, but it's not Democratic either.

In the end, while I am a NM Republican, I will never support a Republican candidate for President as it stands because when push comes to shove, I'll take an inefficient federal government that provides for the poor and lower middle class than one that efficiently ignores them.

I'm not a fan of Schumacher direction. Even in decent script movies he's made like Falling Down, he tends to overstuff his shots. There's always too many extras doing weird things everywhere and strange props scattered around the sets.

He's the practical effects Michael Bay.
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Mitch McConnell has a plan for the last 2 years of Obama's Presidency... on: August 22, 2014, 11:28:22 am
My dream is for the Republicans to get to 50 and not get the majority because Grimes won. It'd be totes hilarious and fitting for Mitch and Cantor to go out that way.

The Democrats steamrolled the Republicans in 1986. It didn't prevent H.W. Bush from running and it didn't prevent Bob Dole, who lost Majority Leader in 86, from running in the primaries either.
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Hillary be chilled from running? on: August 22, 2014, 11:10:59 am
This midterm was never going to be good for the Democrats and never going to matter.  A great GOP showing will only embolden them to nominate a terrible candidate.

2016 is going to be a boring by the numbers predictable election. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. It's sad to say because we all want something to care about, but 2016 is going to put us to sleep.

The Golden Girls is the best sitcom of all time, better than Seinfeld. Though Seinfeld is still great.
14  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: A fair or unfair dismissal from a workplace canteen conversation? on: August 22, 2014, 10:56:57 am
If employees want a coworker gone, it's in the interest of the productivity for the business to let that person go.
15  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Gallup: Plurality of Americans skeptical about evolution on: August 22, 2014, 10:53:09 am
Looks like 50% evolution 42% creationism to me.

And 19% for atheistic evolution is some serious movement, even though the gains are mainly shifts within the evolution crowd and no conversions.

Glad he was able to do it with no water damage to his motherboard.

What's the difference between Freedom and Liberty?

She makes a profit off having more children, raising them at less cost than the benefits she gets from the government. That's called expanding your business. It's a rational decision for her.

Most women do not have those kind of margins.

Hillary is going to run.

lol @ the idea that current Republicans are allowed to have differing policy positions

They're all the same person effectively
21  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: "Having children is a human right that should not be denied by society." Really? on: August 22, 2014, 09:20:20 am
No woman with basic sex ed and access to birth control wants 12 children.

A thread about bad posts is full of bad posts? Go figure.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do we really want politicians like LBJ? (+ Nixon, Cuomo, Christie, Perry, etc.) on: August 21, 2014, 05:17:22 pm
Christie is the only one you listed I would call close to LBJ and it's pretty far off.

LBJ wasn't simply just a backroom wheeler and dealer. Any corrupt DCer can be that guy. What made him special was ability to unapologetically scam HP to get things done, only to leave them with nothing in the end. It was a very principled behavior.

I would rank Batman Forever as the worst one. It wasn't bad enough to be funny like Batman & Robin or Bane's voice in TDKR. It was just annoyingly bad.

Nolan's a better director than Burton.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rick Perry indicted on abuse of power on: August 21, 2014, 12:50:21 pm
I applaud the Democrats for resurrecting Perry's viability, that way he'll be in the spotlight to make even more hilarious gaffes before sinking back into the mud.
