26  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Giulian: Obama should be more like Bill Cosby on: March 12, 2015, 06:29:32 pm
He really should focus on repairing his relationship with his children, who reportedly can't stand him, rather than attacking the President.

If only someone had the guts to remind them of the Logan Act.
28  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Rep. Don Young (R-AK): Wolves could be used to solve homelessness on: March 06, 2015, 06:55:55 pm
Sarah Palin should primary him, because at this point, even she makes more sense than Don Young.

It won't be repealed, there is too big of Republican majority in the legislature. So much for limited government.
Are you serious?

Repeal already failed once and the quote of opposition was from a Republican. Republicans simply aren't going to pass a bill introduced by Democrats, that's how partisanship works.

Oh, great, now we have to hear about how great and formidable Robert Ehrlich is for over a year. This will be Terri Lynn Land redux.

32  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Hypothetical Carper v. Castle 2018 on: March 01, 2015, 06:41:59 pm
More like the reverse. Castle had his chance when there was an open seat in a Republican year, but the primary electorate preferred someone other than him to be the Republican nominee.

The trials at Nuremberg are proof that isn't true. Oh, there is also this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/germany/11430918/Germany-charges-94-year-old-former-medic-at-Auschwitz-with-3600-counts-of-accessory-to-murder.html

Far from being killed out of existence during World War II.

Walker can look forward to doing very poorly in the midwest. With this on his record, he's going to struggle in Ohio if he makes the general.

Braley is closing strong and will win.

If you think Kasich just backed off of right-to-work for no reason, you are mistaken. And 2016 isn't a midterm, it's a presidential year.

36  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CA-SEN: A GE with David Dreier(R) would be competitive on: February 25, 2015, 05:58:47 pm
David Dreier had his lover on the payroll just like Aaron Schock does, which doesn't exactly scream honesty.

That aside, Republicans don't have a chance at winning this seat and even if they did, Dreier would not be viable.
37  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: PA-Muhlenberg College/Morning Call: Toomey up 2 on generic D on: February 25, 2015, 09:50:55 am
Toomey will have a fight. Republicans in blue states aren't going to be helped by Republicans being in the majority in the Senate.
38  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Ron Paul still a racist on: February 24, 2015, 04:05:56 pm
I'm starting to wondering if Ron is trying to deliberately sabotage his son, since Rand has a far better chance of winning the nomination than Ron ever did. Rand is no front runner, but he's definitely a contender. Jealousy can be present in a parent/child relationship when the parent and child are of the same sex.
39  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama breaking out the veto pen today for Keystone on: February 24, 2015, 04:02:56 pm
Putting a pipeline close to farmland is a hazardous idea. In the event of a spill, soil could be irreparably damaged and that would open up major issues for the agriculture industry. If he did approve it and there was a spill, he'd get blamed for it and Republicans would pretend as if they never supported it.

Baron Hill and Mike Sodrel were rivals for years, it was even rumored that Hill hit Sodrel.

Someone doesn't understand how science works. Hybrids of that sort of genetically impossible.

A message for Rudy

I note the absence of a quorum.

Clearly, he wasn't actually serious.

Why don't they just pass a law authorizing Sunday school only?
45  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Walker's college problem on: February 15, 2015, 12:02:01 pm
Scott Walker didn't build a company or have a real profession like Gates or Jobs. I have serious reservations about any politician who doesn't have an actual profession.
he worked for IBM and the Red Cross for a few years.

I was talking about in the context comparing him to Gates and Jobs. He's nowhere near being like them.

Obama? Hillary?

Obama and Hillary worked at law firms, and Hillary has been on faculty.

What? He pursued a marketing degree while working part time at IBM in a sales position. IBM later offered him a full time marketing job. He then dropped out of college because this was the job he wanted when he graduated college anyway. He then went on to fundraising for the Red Cross on the basis of this experience.

Walker is pretty awful and a bad candidate too, but this "issue" is a complete non-starter.

He doesn't have an actually profession like other candidates, that's all I'm pointing out. His private sector experience is far less than his service in public office.

Law Firms?Huh??  Anyone can be a lawyer and any lawyer can create their own business. Youre suggesting being governor of a mid sized state is less qualifying than being a lawyer in some two bit law firm.

I think you are getting confused here. Someone compared Walker to Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, which is inaccurate, since Walker didn't do what they did. Clinton and Obama had a profession they worked at besides political service. It's two separate things, but the point is, Walker's career has mainly been political.

the point is you dont need college to excel in life

Well, no. When you can run for public office and get political support, college isn't necessary.

"Obama opposes gay marriage" too was a common one, but his change on the issue put an end to that one. As it turns out, he was never really opposed in the first place.

I do think that if voters know about it, it would be an issue some. And the fact he has had no real private sector career might also really standout. I think Presidents do need something on their resume besides multiple elected offices, they should be well rounded. You should have a profession and Scott Walker does not have one. I don't see him being attacked for it, but I do think it will be noticeable.
