South Dakota is trying to keep it's title of having the best looking congressional delegation

Can't you guys at least pretend not to be pigs?

This is the new Trump inspired culture. The Access Hollywood tape is the aspiration of his supporters. Sad!

If her looks are the best thing that can be said about her, that's not a whole lot. Besides, she's not even all that. I saw better when doing the homeless count on the streets.

Independence has always been the least popular choice there and with the financial problems, it's not going to happen. The existing territorial status is the most likely option at this point.

What exactly are her qualifications to be in Congress? With that said, after a couple of years of Trump, it might not be as easy as she thinks it is to walk into a seat in Congress. She might end up looking like a fool in a midterm elections.
105  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How Clinton lost Michigan - and blew the election on: December 14, 2016, 12:39:50 pm
The election wasn't a referendum on the American Jobs Act or the Miners Protection Act. It was between Clinton and Trump. Clinton's case was that Trump shouldn't be president because he called a Hispanic lady fat. Maybe she should have campaigned more on jobs and health care for miners.

You are really a trip. Clinton had a plans to create jobs all over the country and very specifically mentioned all areas, including Appalachia. That aside, Trump's behavior towards women was definitely a big issue. Why should anyone who gropes, harasses and humiliates women be President? That's a huge character issue and character counts for a lot when running for President. Newsflash, groping and harassing women is not okay. Those are not some constitutional rights that politically correct liberals have stripped men of, so let's get that straight.

You are one of those folks who think that Hillary should have run a racist campaign in order to win. Running a racist campaign would have caused her to lose by even more, because fewer minorities and women would have shown up to vote. For the record, Hillary did the right thing and it's better to lose doing the right thing that is to win doing the wrong thing.

Hurricane Katrina. Those evacuees had to go somewhere and Baton Rouge was the place.
107  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP Leaders Shield Trump from an Expanded Russia Probe on: December 13, 2016, 12:54:05 pm
Russia stole information from the RNC, so of course they aren't going to investigate anything.
Any evidence for that beyond anonymous leaks to questionable news websites?

The CIA is a credible source.
LOL

Firstly this is not an official published report that provides evidence, its an anonymous source

Secondly disseminating disinformation for propaganda purposes is part of the CIA's job description. They've being doing it around the world to influence politics and elections for decades. What on earth makes you think that they'd draw the line at domestic politics.

Thirdly the US is a highly partisan country. Senior people will be helped by political links to promote their career and their own political agendas. What on earth makes you think the CIA is exempt from this process?

the accusations were published in the Washington post which has a hyper partisan agenda of its own.

Are you seriously suggesting that the washington post report of the leaked CIA source is a more credible source than wikileaks which has a ten year record of unmatched accuracy in its publishing.

I suspect you are just equating 'credible' with 'establishment' as if the two were the same.

You wasted your time typing all that. You're trying to convince yourself more than anything else.

One would think that if this was some sort of scheme that enough votes would have been added to put Clinton over the top.

No. Who would contribute enough to the GDP and federal budget to pay for food stamps for Kentucky, West Virginia and all those other helpless states? lol.

Russia stole information from the RNC, so of course they aren't going to investigate anything. Whatever was stolen is being kept for blackmail reasons and Republicans are over a barrel.

If the transition is any indication, no one should expect that he will be a good President.

Hillary Clinton wants him droned, so that might be the worst thing possible for Assange.
115  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If the electoral college were to vote in Hillary Clinton... on: December 12, 2016, 11:00:31 pm
The Republican victory was legitimate.

Prove it wasn't.

The Democrats lost because they nominated a horrible candidate, cold, calculating, establishment, who had trouble connecting with ordinary, every day, honest, hard working, tax paying Americans, not because of anything the Russians may or may not have done.

2.5 million votes say otherwise, but an antiquated system saved Trump from a loss. Besides, your man won the Presidency, so why are you even worried about how other people are perceiving the win? Really, you need to allow others to have their opinions.

If the situation was reversed, Republicans would want the same thing.
117  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: uit being bitter. on: December 12, 2016, 10:46:39 pm
IF it happened it'd be war because there is no legit reason for the electors not to vote for Trump.

Legit reason #1: It is their duty, and main reason for being, to deny the presidency to a would-be dictator.

Legit reason #2: Russia and James Comey elected Trump; not the American people.

We won.

You lost.

Quit being bitter.

i could be wrong - apologies in advance - but weren't you one of the people who...lost...this election?

During the course of the campaign, I launched many harsh denunciations of both Trump and Clinton.

Nearer to the end of the campaign though, I returned home.

Lost the election?

Hardly.

Who controls the Presidency?
Who controls the Vice Presidency?
Who controls the U.S. Senate?
Who controls the U.S. House of Representatives?
Who controls appointments to the U.S. Supreme Court, appointments which will set the course of the court for a generation?



Marion Jones won gold medals in the 2000 Olympics, yet was on performance enhancing drugs. There are many ways of winning, but not all of them are magnanimous.

Trump supporters would lose it big time and it would be quite entertaining to see their reaction. And considering that most of the country rejected Trump, his supporters would be quite a minority. With all this craziness that has come up, the electoral college would be justified in denying Trump the presidency.

It doesn't even get listed as a swing state anymore by most prognosticators, which says a lot. Down ballot, NM-1 has shifted hard from even being competitive anymore. It's a blue state.
120  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: OH, PA, MI +WI are finished because of globalization.Presidents can't solve it on: December 12, 2016, 03:01:44 pm
Truth is inconvenient. If you refuse to adapt to changing economic conditions, you aren't going to make it. Those waiting for manufacturing jobs to return need to instead go to school and train to enter markets that are actually growing, like technology. Even training in transcription, nursing or any of those other fields that those school who advertise on television specialize in is preferable than sitting around waiting for a revival of long gone industries.

These unsubstantiated reports on "Russian" hacking are bogus

Infowars is not a credible source.
122  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Would liberals of the 50s/60s approve of todays pro-McCarthyism Democrats? on: December 12, 2016, 12:54:59 pm
McCarthyism was a wide reaching witch hunt that involved blacklisting. No Democrats are doing anything close to that right now.
You must be joking. The witch hunting and blacklisting of people accused of racism/sexism/homophobia/etc (delete as applicable) has been going on for decades now and plenty of Democrats have been involved.

No, I'm not joking. Have a several seats, sweetheart.

Well let me refresh your memory. You will be familiar with the oft publicised ritual of an SJW denunciation. It goes a little something like this. Someone (e.g. Brendan Eich, Pax Dickenson, Curt Schilling, Pat Buchanan, Milo Yiannopolis etc) will be accused of being a racist/sexist/homophobe/witch (delete as applicable). A whole swarm of SJWs will point out the target of their outrage, denounce him, demand that he resign/be fired/be boycotted/be employment blacklisted/etc. Usually the person targeted will then indeed lose their livelihood/be employment blacklisted etc.

This form of politically correct  witch hunting and blacklisting has been going on for decades now and Democrats have been enthusiastic practitioners of it. They repeatedly tried to witch hunt Trump in this way during the election and are now feeling butthurt that it didn't work out for them.

Some people get judged on the words and actions, which is perfectly fair. Blacklisting by McCarthy was not based on that, it was all about unfounded suspicions. Besides, none of the people you mentioned have really been blacklisted. Blacklisting resulted in a total loss of career and livelihood for some people. Someone actually committed suicide over being blacklisted.

The same can be said of Trump with electoral college. We can talk about shifting counties around all we want, but it's really a moot point since the votes of every state and county are going to continue to count. Cook and Los Angeles contribute to economy and federal budget greatly, yet I don't see anyone complaining about that.
