An amusing waste of time, like most things in life, though most things in life aren't really amusing I suppose...

I'd go to Kansas City if I was viewing this, and Jackson County voted for Hillary.

...according to a forgery created by a lunatic false prophet who founded a heretical religion of lies splintering from Christianity, yes.

Mormons are absurdly successful as a demographic. Maybe absurd lies aren't all bad?

It strange seeing conservative nationalist types using  "it's the current year" and "other countries have it" as a justification for their position...

We should just sell off all the National Parks since they dont feature emo* dance clubs. Maybe keep the Statue of Liberty because you can see her giant feet.

Oh yeah, the state is filled with a whole lot of nothingness, but so is pretty much any western state...

Australia has a bunch of deadly animals and horrible laws regarding movies and video games, but I still can't bring myself to hate it for some reason.

85 and sunny is fine enough on the beach, but I don't think I'd call 85 F "extreme."

Of course not! But I would take, say, 100F over the 25F that MormDem wants.

Extreme cold.  Despite being a proud Midwesterner, I'm happiest when I'm on a beach vacation, baby.  Give me 85 and sunny every day of the year, and I'm in heaven.

This, very mush this. I have never agreed with a statement more in my life.

Meh, better than Trump.

I'd be glad there's be a laissez-faire type person in the White House but I'd be concerned about anarchy

That's weird, considering I'm probably more hawkish than you. Wink
73  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of the states: Plains Midwest on: August 01, 2017, 03:30:08 pm
Why on earth are Iowa and South Dakota so popular here? Huh

I wouldn't say they are, really.  In fact, both voting overwhelmingly for Trump has brought on a lot of hate.  However, both are pretty well-run states without a lot of socioeconomic problems, nice people, good standard of living statistics, etc.  They're just "nice places."  They're not the most exciting, but they're both more exciting than random people from California or New York would assume, IMO.

You say they get a lot of hate, but this poll suggests they are pretty popular. Compare the results to, say, Kansas or Missouri.

275-263

He wouldn't be able to quite get the same appeal as Trump in the Midwest, make him lose Michigan and Pennsylvania, but he would be less alienating to minorities, allowing him to just barely win Nevada and the election.
