Likely D, because it's not like she's really a match for any part of the state outside of South Florida.
102  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump could win Ohio by 20 points if he runs in 2020 on: January 09, 2017, 06:28:43 pm
Ohio was pretty much a non-factor in 2008 and 2012 as far as being all that decisive, it pretty much just was a cake topper and not much more.

I'm tired of hearing about identity politics when it was Trump who played identity politics from the start of his campaign. He needed to be called out on all of his rhetoric, because it was vile. Plenty of people know he was wrong, but chose to vote for him because he promised jobs. If he doesn't deliver big, his 2016 win in Ohio will be a distant afterthought.

The electoral map certainly is changing and it means being less reliant on the Midwest. New opportunities have to be explored, because nothing stays the same.

If you are going to troll, at least be less transparent.

He is triggered by everything. In life, people are going to talk about you, but you can't go off like this and it's especially important for the President to understand this.

She didn't attack anyone but Trump and it's funny to me how Trump somehow equals the country as a whole. Most of the country doesn't talk like him or act like him, so this idea that he is America is absolutely ludicrous.

With all that said, when did Trump cease being a celebrity? He is known for The Apprentice and being in the tabloids for his personal life, so he is a celebrity and a part of the elite.
105  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: why banning cell phone use in cars is dumb on: January 06, 2017, 12:22:49 pm
Texting while driving is a bad idea. Even if you took distracted driving laws off the books, someone who caused an accident because they were using their phone would still get charged with causing an accident and possibly have their insurance canceled. Laws aren't based on percentages, anyway.
106  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Border Wall Actually Happening on: January 06, 2017, 12:08:59 pm
It's one thing to propose things like this in a campaign, it's another to actually do it while governing. Trump is no longer an outsider, so he can't hide behind that to justify stupid ideas. The cost of this wall will undoubtedly be enormous and logistically it's nearly impossible. Let's also remember the fact that there have been more immigrants leaving the United States than coming in. This is nothing but a boondoggle.

Have you ever heard of a photo op? You cannot be this naive.
108  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pence hints only O-care repeal now,Doctors predict collapse/bailout of Insurance on: January 05, 2017, 05:13:38 pm
People will die if they lose their insurance, so it's not like a collapse is something to hope for.

Maybe people will start living more healthy lives. You know, spend more time outside, exercising, drinking a lot of water, eating healthy food, getting the sun on your skin in moderation, keeping a positive attitude about life....

I don't wish that people die, but sometimes it's hardship that motivates people to take action.

Not all health issues can be handled by those methods. Lots of people need medication and therapy. And of course you need doctor visits to know what is happening with your health.

110  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Philly SHOCKED that new large soda tax is hurting consumers on: January 05, 2017, 04:18:58 pm
Drinking less of those unhealthy drinks isn't hurting them.

You don't get to tell people what is or isn't good for them. Enjoying losing in 2020 for the same reasons you lost in 2016 Smiley

Good luck duplicate an electoral college win based on narrow, narrow numbers. Enjoy losing in 2020 when Trump can't run an outsider anymore Smiley
111  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Macy's shutting down 68 stores on: January 05, 2017, 02:39:24 pm
Macy's charges designer prices for their in house labels, which is not a winning strategy in malls where they are competing with JCPenney. There is also the fact that you have stores like Burlington, Marshalls and Ross sometimes only blocks away selling actual designer items at huge discounts.
112  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: States to require tax returns made public for future Presidential ballot access on: January 05, 2017, 02:30:00 pm
Local officeholders in California have to file financial disclosure form, so I don't see what the problem with this is. If he doesn't want to disclose his tax returns, then he just won't appear on the ballot in some states. It's not like he would have any chance at winning some of those states and any votes for him count for nothing anyway.
113  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: McConnell says Americans won't tolerate Democrats blocking SCOTUS nominations on: January 05, 2017, 01:11:40 pm
He must not be too smart. You can't have a double standard on these things; They can't expect to block a court nomination under a Democratic President and then expect Democrats to play fair once a Republican is elected. It's either a consensus pick or no one at all. The court can survive with 8 or fewer justices until 2021 or later.
114  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: teens live stream their torturing of bound and gagged trump supporter on: January 04, 2017, 10:57:53 pm
You know, some people are just violent and not politically motivated. So far it seems that there is no evidence to support the idea that the victim is a Trump supporter. Had this not been somehow linked to Trump, no one here would even be talking about it. It's not okay to beat people up for any reason.

Did you listen to anything they said on the video?  I can't imagine you did.  There aren't many white people around those parts.. they didn't just pick this guy at random.

I have not seen any evidence that this person is a Trump supporter. Trump ain't the victim here, the person beaten up is.

Uh... yeah, duh.  No one has said otherwise.  Doesn't matter if the guy was a Trump supporter.  If 4 KKK members did this to a black guy and talked about Obama, you wouldnt be asking or caring if the guy was an Obama supporter.

Why would it really matter? There's no need to politicize everything. We can talk all the hypothetical scenarios in the world, but it doesn't change the fact that a political angle doesn't make this crime more or less worse.

Quote
The Alt-right generally keeps such displays in their basements or at their political gatherings.
The 'Alt-right' doesn't exist, anymore than the 'vast rightwing conspiracy' exists. Both were completely made up by the Clinton camp in late 2015.


Quote
Would you be surprised, if at Herr Fuhrer's coronation, a bunch of people attending actually gave Nazi salutes?

Remember when Laura Ingram waved at the audience at the RNC, and the entire liberal online community accused her of doing a secret Nazi salute based on a selective still shot? People will see what they want to see.

The alt-right does exist, there are people who call themselves that.

Quote
The Southern Poverty Law Center says the term "alt-right" was popularized in 2008 by Richard Spencer, head of the National Policy Institute, a white nationalist think tank. Spencer this week tweeted: "Identifying as #AltRight entails HUGE risk, as it's a position explicitly forbidden by the system." As word of plans for Clinton's speech spread, he also tweeted: "We've made it. #AltRight." The movement largely swirls in online message boards and websites, attracting mostly young people.

Clearly not something that Clinton made up.

119  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Why the pessimism about Donald Trump here? on: January 04, 2017, 02:23:08 pm
Because he's demonstrated that he is not qualified to lead? Every day since the election, he has shown more and more how unqualified he is to lead.
So you would rather have a woman who, "qualified" by virtue of holding different offices, nevertheless had no accomplishments of her own to speak of; who took advantage of others for her own purposes; and who is known to be a heartless, repulsive woman concerned only about her own advancement? I would rather have a political rookie win the White House than someone marred by scandal, who is also untrustworthy and greedy.

First off, experience counts when you are running for President and I think would rather have someone who has held office before as President over a complete novice. Second, Clinton has a substantial amount of accomplishments that she achieved on her own, whereas Trump was given a check by his father. If you think Trump isn't out for himself, then you are not well informed.

If we want to talk about heartless and repulsive, just read about Trump's past antics. And untrustworthy and greedy describe Trump's entire career. But at the end of the day, it's pointless making these comparisons, because the election is over and Trump is President.

121  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Two Counties Gave HRC her ENTIRE PV Plurality on: January 04, 2017, 01:25:57 pm
Had Trump won the popular vote, yet lost the electoral college, Republicans would have not have been okay with that scenario and probably would have found a way to give Trump the presidency anyway.

But if we are going to talk about counties, you have to acknowledge that only four counties gave Trump his electoral college win. If you eliminate Livingston County in Michigan, Waukesha County in Wisconsin, Washington County and Westmoreland County in Pennsylvania, then Hillary Clinton won the electoral college.
122  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYT: Megyn Kelly Is Said to Be Leaving Fox News for NBC on: January 03, 2017, 09:56:37 pm
I think it's best to see what she does at NBC before making a judgment.
123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obamacare repealed...then what? on: January 03, 2017, 06:15:45 pm
Nothing, because it's not going to be repealed. The Republican leadership likes to talk about repeal, but isn't going to risk potential losses on actually doing it. That talk about delaying the repeal until after 2020 is proof of the apprehension that the leadership has.
124  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: North Korea wont be testing nuclear weapons on: January 03, 2017, 06:11:56 pm
Color me old fashioned, but Twitter is not the place for the President to discuss foreign policy. Especially not in such a grade school manner.
125  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Former President George W. Bush to Attend Donald Trump's Inauguration on: January 03, 2017, 04:16:27 pm
This is more of a formality than anything else. None of the past Presidents attending are really that fond of Trump or close friends with him.
