1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Most liberal state on social issues? on: Today at 12:10:56 am
This a hard question to answer, becasue "social issues" and "socially liberal" could mean so many things. For example, Intell here has Vermont as the most liberal state, but Vermont is also one of the most gun friendly states, so if you consider supporting gun control a major part of "social liberalism" your list would look different.

Are you insane? It's not like diplomacy is only for countries we like, if anything it's the opposite.

Then why don't we have relations with Iran or North Korea?

Let me rephrase that: If anything, it should be opposite. Unless you think we shouldn't even attempt negotiations with countries we don't like?

#NObama was much better, coherent, freedom, and more eloquent.

This sentence makes zero sense.

I generally don't like signatures with biblical quotes, but I have no issues with yours.

All juices are more or less the same, so if I was in the mood for juice and the waitress brought me a different kind, I doubt I would ask for something else and in fact I might not notice until I started drinking. But, generally, for most things (for the main course, for instance), I'd insist on the thing that I ordered. Your example is just very petty. Voted Person A because that's what I'd do in this specific scenario, though really personality-wise I'm more of a Person B.

How watered down is the juice you have been drinking? Tongue

I can get behind this. The amount of edible food that is wasted in this country by being thrown out by stores is just insane.

16  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Have you gotten snow yet this season? on: January 15, 2017, 03:26:40 pm
In that depressing phase where there is barely any snow on the ground at all (hasn't legit snowed since well before Christmas and got warm enough to melt it) - just like "gusts" or whatever - but it is so God damn cold that it's not going anywhere for a while!

13 degrees right now, and it feels warm compared to last night.  Midwest!

This is why the Midwest is the worst region of the county, by far.

Usually B, though sometimes A if I honestly just don't care enough to bother to change it.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Atlas Moral Acceptability Poll on: January 15, 2017, 03:19:43 pm
Gay Relations: Usually unacceptable
Having a baby outside of marriage: Acceptable
Sex outside of marriage: Unacceptable
Divorce: Usually unacceptable.
Embryonic Stem Cell Research: Unacceptable
Polygamy: Unacceptable
Cloning humans: Unacceptable
Doctor-assisted suicide: Usually unacceptable
Suicide: Usually unacceptable
Gambling: Acceptable
Abortion: Unacceptable
Cloning animals: Acceptable
Fur: Acceptable
Affairs: Unacceptable
Death Penalty: Acceptable, should be expanded
Medical Testing on Animals: Acceptable

Could you elaborate on what you mean by that? I presume you don't find gay relations morally acceptable for religious reasons, but it's the "usually" part that's throwing me off. What makes gay relationships acceptable in some situations? What are those situations?
20  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Atlas Social Issues Poll on: January 15, 2017, 02:55:57 pm
1. Animals: Deserve some rights, but not equal to humans.
2. Criminals: Situational, voted not evil.
3. Islam: Not inherently more dangerous or violent than other religions.
4. Morality: Objective, people should have basic rights and freedoms regardless of culture.
5. Western Values: While not perfect, modern western values are preferable to any other currently existing ones.
6. Prejudice: Not justifiable, even if it makes sense why certain individuals might hold prejudices views.
7. Prosperity: Lean within control, I guess.
8. Police vs Suspects: Lean police, at least compared to most people I see on the internet.
9. Assimilation vs. Multiculturalism: Lean assimilation.
10: Hypocrisy: Most religious people are hypocritical, though so are most non-religious people.
11. Science vs. Religion: Science, though the two answers are far from mutually exclusive and don't really cover all points of view very well.
12. Equality vs. Inequality: Inequality, the idea that you can make everybody completely equal is insane.
13. Monarchy vs. Dictatorship: The capitalistic atheist dictator, though both are obviously horrible.
14. Future vs. Past: Lean future, mostly becasue I'm skeptical of the idea that the past was so great.
15. Political Party: I don't think the member of any mainstream political party are inherently more or less moral than anybody else.

24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Study: Conservatives are more attractive than liberals on: January 13, 2017, 02:05:44 pm
What if they aren't American though? Are right-wing people from Europe or Latin American supposedly more physically attractive than left-wing people from there?

They are talking about pols, not voters. They didn't do like a HotOrNot test. Although I imagine that racism plays a factor in any determination like that. Maybe amongst conservative minorities and liberal whites, they are more objective.

There is no way to be "objective" about physical attraction.

Weird to see Trumpists suddenly supporting illegal immigration. FWIW, I do agree that this is a bad move from Obama, but I have never supported Trump-like positions on immigration in general...
