101  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Who here thinks Trump needs to focus on "making America great again"? on: February 26, 2017, 10:38:06 pm
It was just a slogan to get elected, nothing more.

For those at home wondering which random nutjob EnglishPete is referring to, Paul Joseph Watson is the editor of Infowars.

From the creepy looking photo and the three names, I thought he was some serial murderer.
103  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Slate.com allowed this article to be pubishled before Alan Colmes is even buried on: February 26, 2017, 04:13:39 pm
It's not an untrue article. Wishing cancer on someone is far worse than this article.

they could have published it anytime, why at his death?

as if his life was somehow forever tainted by it.

After he left the show, he kept somewhat of a low profile and was not talked about. When somebody passes, articles usually focus on what they were known as. It's not as if he was portrayed as a horrible person in the article, just that he was more of a seat filler for the network.

He is a coward, nothing more.
106  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Your feelings on Perez as DNC Chair, Ellison as Deputy Chair? on: February 25, 2017, 05:09:18 pm
Trump won the election because he made false promises and promised jobs that can never be brought back. His winning had everything to do with demagoguery and little to do with Democrats not being liberal enough.

T***p won because he promised something other than the continued status quo where the working class keeps getting the shaft at every turn. Which naturally made him a better candidate than Ms. "America is already great!" Smiley Smiley Smiley

And he's doing just the opposite, so what good came of electing him?

Is it too much to ask neoliberal Democratic hacks to actually learn anything from their embarrassing defeat 3 months ago?

Learn what?  She got more votes.  How many did Bernie get?

1. 3 months ago refeers to the general election, not primaries.
2. And it doesn't matter. Trump is President because Hillary blew a winnable race. I mean come on, man, she lost by a hair to somebody who committed every political sin there's in the book and was written off by almost everybody as unelectable.

She won more votes in the general.  The people are not rejecting neoliberalism.

Furthermore, most normal voters don't even use words like "neoliberalism" or even think about it. The far-left thinks everyone thinks like them, but they are wrong.

You all need to let go of politics, because some of these posts are overreactions. The DNC Chair is a tactical position that is supposed to make sure that the party has decent infrastructure to win elections. Trying to re-fight the primary is pointless, because it's a dead issue. The far-left is as insane as the Trump people.
110  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2018 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: WI-Magellan (R): Baldwin +13 over Duffy, +14 over Clarke on: February 24, 2017, 09:49:06 pm
Considering that this is a Republican poll, it says a lot that Baldwin is leading by so much. A midterm with a Republican trifecta is probably not the best time to knock off a Democratic incumbent in a purple state.
111  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pat Buchanan: Is secession the solution? on: February 24, 2017, 06:33:46 pm
Secession would be a disaster for some states, because some do not have the resources to sustain being independent. It's even hard for new counties to even be formed because of the resources it takes (same with incorporated cities).
112  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senator Ernst shut down at townhall with people shouting "YOUR LAST TERM" on: February 21, 2017, 10:17:40 pm
This will go a long way. Like it or not, people like discord and it's the only way some will get fired up.
113  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Anti-Vaccine Parents Feel Empowered by Donald Trump on: February 21, 2017, 05:18:17 pm
For those who do not want to vaccinate their children, they can choose private school, although there are probably strict rules about vaccinations in private schools as well.
114  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CPAC: Milo disinvited on: February 20, 2017, 10:41:49 pm
People like this always stage their own falls, because they keep talking and eventually that talk becomes more careless due to arrogance. Nothing is more satisfying to see an idiot ruin himself.
115  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Democrats who is your favorite republican and republican who is your favoritedem on: February 19, 2017, 01:25:05 pm
I don't have a favorite Republican, since most of them are pretty terrible.
116  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Chelsea Clinton to run for NY Senate 2020 if Gillibrand gets the nomination on: February 19, 2017, 01:24:07 pm
People keep looking for excuses to talk about anyone named Clinton. HILLARY LOST THE ELECTION AND TRUMP WON!

It's time to stop using the Clintons to deflect off of what a disaster Trump is.

Stop 👏 giving 👏  attention 👏 to 👏 racist 👏 trolls 👏

Can be actually listen to this poster? Thanks.
118  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: We need a third party, Atlas Forum friends... Can we do it together? on: February 13, 2017, 03:37:29 pm
Any third party would at least lean to the left or right, because there are only two sides of the spectrum. Sure, there are subcategories on each side of the spectrum, but there is still left and right. Centrism isn't an ideology, it's a variation of either left or right ideology.
119  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should Obama's birthday be an Illinois holiday? on: February 13, 2017, 03:26:45 pm
This is a thread on a message board, yet some people here are acting like it's an actual bill in Congress.
120  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CA-Sen: Feinstein gearing up for another run in 2018 on: February 13, 2017, 12:32:48 am
Seriously, people need to find something else to be outraged about other than incumbents running for re-election. Having new people run just for the sake of being is lame thinking, candidates have to have substance beyond being "new". If you want new people, focus on flipping GOP seats to Democratic.

Yeah, like California doesn't have dozens of people that would be more than qualified to hold this seat, while not holding Dinosaur Feinstein's medieval views on national security?

My point is that this "new blood" meme is stupid. Just being new to politics is not a good reason to be elected, some substance is necessary too.

Dianne Feinstein is the 2nd worst Senator from a solid blue state after Carper, and California is more solid blue than Delaware, and most blue state Senators are still pretty bad.

Plus her husband made a killing wartime profiteering from her Iraq war vote. She's a vile disgrace.

How is Tom Carper an awful senator? He seems like a good guy.

To jfern, everyone not named Bernie Sanders is evil.
121  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Evacuations of Oroville, Calif. ordered as dam expected to overflow on: February 13, 2017, 12:15:17 am
To be fair, it is worth pondering what the federal response would be to such a disaster, since Trump is not fond of California. Let's pray that FEMA is allowed to assist the communities in the event of disaster.
122  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Counties where Stein won 3rd place? on: February 13, 2017, 12:03:37 am
There is no Kalawoa County in Hawaii.
123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Reince Priebus is in trouble on: February 12, 2017, 10:43:32 pm
Someone has to be blamed. It certainly won't be the person at the very top, so it will be lower level staff who takes the hits.
