85  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What do our resident members of the Party of Lincoln think of this quote? on: May 14, 2016, 07:13:55 pm
I'm not sure what you are trying to prove. Do you think that a single Lincoln quote will change people's political views? Or maybe you are saying that people who disagree with this quote shouldn't be Republicans? I really don't see what you are getting at here.
86  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How do you feel about Trump and Clinton for POTUS? on: May 14, 2016, 07:10:23 pm
Worse than 1992 (in terms of candidate quality)

FTFY

With that out of the way, I'm comfortable with neither.

Well, most election are worse than 1992. Wink

I am obligated to always pick the hottest place on these "where would you rather live" polls, so I have to with Venus, since IIRC it's actually hotter than Mercury.

94  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of West Virginia on: May 12, 2016, 08:07:39 pm
I don't think it should be acceptable to talk about Mississippi the way some people do either. Insulting Oklahoma is an Atlas meme but if it weren't I'd feel the same way about it. You're perfectly welcome to try to make insulting West Virginia a meme too, but forced memes tend to not go over too great.

TBF the making fun of Oklahoma meme isn't really funny either.

So basically we need to decide whether we'd prefer a fascist goon who tries to outlaw criticizing himself, deports all immigrants, whose abortion views change more often than many graduate students change clothes, puts the US into default, and causes an endless stream of international incidents (some of which are bound to escalate) or a pro-abortion felon who will appoint the craziest stoned out hippy she can find to the Supreme Court to keep aborting legal for the next century and rule that microaggressions are an act of violence not protected by the first amendment, the second amendment states only the government is allowed to own guns, and the first amendment means religious organizations lose their tax exempt status.

Welcome to hell.

(outcomes exaggerated slightly for effect)

*gasp* The horror! Shocked

It wouldn't be such a horror in libertarian world where there is no property tax and the government only spends 5% of our GDP but it would be beyond ridiculous in the US given all other non-profit orgs are also tax exempt.

Eh, I have to wonder if some churches should really count as "non-profit", but point taken.
