76  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: To my fellow Democrats/liberals: Stop saying Republican voters are stupid. on: March 09, 2017, 06:15:58 pm
There are number of them practically admitting that they are stupid by saying that they regret voting for Trump after seeing him in action.

The Joke is on you guys.

The quote is NOT from mike pence, it is from BARACK OBAMA in 2015

I suppose some people have to find their joy in playing on a message board. If this gives you life, more power to you.
78  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: GA-6? Can Democrat Jon Ossoff win in the special election? on: March 07, 2017, 06:50:55 pm
The trends in the area were fairly strong last year, so strong that the Republican legislature is redrawing a few state house districts, two of which lie within GA-6. That sort of action isn't taken without real concern.
79  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pence now claims slaves were immigrants in address today, defending carson on: March 07, 2017, 06:33:35 pm
Not really surprising. There are some right-wingers who think that slavery had an upside because it introduced blacks to the western world.
80  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Jason Chaffetz: Poor People Should Stop Buying iPhones If They Need Money For HC on: March 07, 2017, 05:41:33 pm
That's not how any of this works. The cost of an iPhone doesn't much cover serious medical costs or even a year's worth of premiums or deductibles. With that said, most people make do with less expensive phones and still have trouble paying for insurance. It's not a matter of prioritization, it's a matter of affordability and accessibility. By this standard, one could afford a great healthcare plan if they opted to get rid of mortgage or rent by being homeless. Or if they stopped eating, they could save a few dollars.
81  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Dems want to shut down government if GOP keeps stonewalling Russia investigation on: March 07, 2017, 12:44:20 am
Regardless of what you think of a shutdown, the Russia issue is a serious one and it should be investigated. There was a time when such interference would have been taken seriously.

-So information about candidates should be banned from ever being released? No; the Russia issue should absolutely not be investigated. Only serves as fodder for McCarthyists.

Stop starting all your posts with a hyphen, it's annoying and pointless. With that said, we are talking about a campaign that colluded with a foreign power. No country is going to interfere in another country's election unless they are going to get a return. An investigation is necessary to find out exactly what was going on.

83  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Puerto Rico status referendum - June 11 on: March 06, 2017, 07:22:49 pm
Independence! Statehood is a trash right-wing idea.

You really ought to be more informed. Puerto Rico doesn't want independence and it's always has low support in referendums. Not everything is about left and right.
84  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Puerto Rico status referendum - June 11 on: March 05, 2017, 11:41:16 pm
Becoming a state would be helpful in fixing the financial issues if I am correct. Dividing or merging states would not happen, because state legislatures would probably not agree with it and the basis for doing it to maintain partisan balance isn't a great legal argument that would hold up in court. If this referendum passes, you can guarantee that Congress will not take the issue up.

It really wouldn't help their fiscal nightmare if they became a state, unless there's an immediate federal bailout.

As a state, Puerto Rico would have access to refinancing options that are not available under the current status.

86  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Trump claims Obama wire tapped Trump Tower. on: March 04, 2017, 01:38:19 pm
That never happened.
87  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Arkansas debates removing Clinton name from Little Rock airport on: March 03, 2017, 07:47:07 pm
They really need to let it go.
88  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: PR Flag in NJ Vandalized: Swastika Painted Over It on: March 03, 2017, 07:46:22 pm
I bet he doesn't even know that Puerto Rico is part of the United States. All he did was give himself a bad name, so the gag is on him.
89  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pence used personal AOL email for state business and was hacked on: March 02, 2017, 08:06:38 pm
Stranded in the Philippines? That's a common hack that even the most amateur of computer users can guard against.
90  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Can Trump and the populist right bring college-educated whites into the fold? on: March 02, 2017, 07:39:07 pm
No. It's either one group or the other, not both. His ideology just doesn't fit with college educated whites.
91  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: WaPo: Sessions spoke twice with Russian ambassador during campaign on: March 02, 2017, 05:19:17 pm
A group meeting that is part of Senate business is hardly the same thing as a person to person meeting. Plus, none of those failed to disclose it while under oath in a confirmation hearing.
92  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: What will Paul Ryan do if the Democrats take control of the House in 2018? on: March 02, 2017, 02:47:50 pm
Refuse to give up power. No way would he allow Democrats to take over and he'd have Trump to back him.
93  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: WaPo: Sessions spoke twice with Russian ambassador during campaign on: March 01, 2017, 11:36:01 pm
He will not resign. That's like trying to pull a steak out of a dog's mouth.
94  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: WaPo: Sessions spoke twice with Russian ambassador during campaign on: March 01, 2017, 10:20:11 pm
There are a lot of people who are going to end up in big trouble sooner or later. This is a corrupt mess.

-Prediction: nobody will get in trouble for anything (except maybe HRC, who might be locked up).

First off, why do you start all of your posts with a hyphen? It makes no sense and has no grammatical purpose. Second, if you have to bring up Hillary at this stage, then you know your guys are in trouble.

96  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Betsy DeVos Celebrates Jim Crow Education System as Pioneer of "School Choice" on: February 28, 2017, 03:13:13 pm
The problem with the statement is that HBCUs were not created because of school choice, they were created because blacks didn't have any options for education.
97  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 63% of African Americans feel taken for granted by the democratic party on: February 28, 2017, 03:06:38 pm
I'm assuming that Lincoln Republican is one of those people who subscribes to the idea that Obama isn't African-American because his mother was white.
98  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 63% of African Americans feel taken for granted by the democratic party on: February 28, 2017, 01:29:14 am
But they certainly aren't going to be supporting Trump in 2020. The presidential primary process is heavily weighted toward the black vote and almost intentionally so. Strategically, blacks have plenty of clout in the Democratic Party, which is hardly being taken for granted.

99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: President Trump orders his steak well done with ketchup on: February 27, 2017, 11:29:08 pm
This is demonstrative of how no one takes him seriously. He is the biggest joke in the world, despite being President. Holding the highest office in the land can't buy him the respect that he so desperately wants. People revel in making fun of him and that is truly sad.
100  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Bannon is reportedly trying to talk Trump out of repealing Obamacare on: February 27, 2017, 07:33:39 pm
As expected. Repeal was never going to happen, it was just another buzzword for the campaign.
