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

Ah yes, banning art becasue you don't like country it comes from. How liberal of you Mr. "ALATT". Smiley

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.

Only if you pay for my gender reassignment surgery so that I can become a lesbian.
82  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.
83  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Is making stupid "is X morally acceptable?" polls morally acceptable? (Serious) on: January 15, 2017, 03:25:10 pm
Leave it up to the states (normal)
84  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What type of person are you ? on: January 15, 2017, 03:22:29 pm
Usually B, though sometimes A if I honestly just don't care enough to bother to change it.
85  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?
86  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.

90  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.
91  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama: No more free rides for Cubans on: January 13, 2017, 01:36:28 pm
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...
92  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Party Focus Question on: January 13, 2017, 01:00:57 pm
Eh, I guess I will still count myself as an economic R, though even on economics I'm not exactly 100% R at this point.

95  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What if the Democrats moderated on abortion? on: January 12, 2017, 09:59:14 pm
If the Democrats moderated on abortion, I'd seriously consider changing parties.

Then just do it now and help them take the first step.

I would think that you of all people would want Inks to remain a Republican. Tongue

Unless I'm misunderstanding him, he more or less insinuated the major roadblock to him becoming a Democrat is the abortion issue, which leads me to believe his non-abortion views are left-of-center?  As someone who wants the GOP to be a big tent party on the issue of abortion (I'd prefer we remain clearly pro-life but tolerate candidates who feel differently and DEFINITELY support moderate measures like exceptions for life of the mother, rape, incest, etc.), I am not a fan of such a presence in our party, as it pretty much drags us left on (what I believe to be) the wrong issues.

Unless he's views chzanged fairly recently, which I suppose is possible, Inks is actually pretty conservative. I think he feels alienated from the Republican Party because of Trump and the various shenanigans Congress has pulled during the Obama years, such as last year's Supreme Court vacancy debacle, so the Democrats shifting to left on any major issues would make a party switch tempting. I mean, it's possible I'm wrong and he's shifted to the left, but in that case he need to update his PM score. Tongue

So, I tried recreating your state using this app* to see how they would vote in 2016. The results stay mostly the same, but Minneapolis , Virginia Beach, Warren, and Pittsburgh all flipped to Trump. I suppose none of that is surprising, but I thought it would be interesting to try anyway. Tongue

*(Though because you can't split counties, the LA area doesn't really work. If if I move Ventura county over to the Fresno state, I just end up with two somewhat overpopulated state rather than one very overpopulated state)
