76  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: California raises smoking age to 21 on: June 02, 2015, 07:26:07 pm
I can see a Republican state lowering the smoking age to increase profits for tobacco. That would receive much praise.

It's not really a big deal, the drinking age is 21, so it's not like this really represents a huge restriction on freedom.
77  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How ugly will the Clinton supporters go against Sanders? on: June 02, 2015, 09:49:27 am
I don't think anyone really cares about Sanders enough to do that. Considering that I think he's running to make a statement more than actually trying to win, it's probably not going to be that ugly of a race.
78  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Where does everyone get the notion that Lindsay Graham is gay? on: June 01, 2015, 04:45:31 pm
Because people love to speculate about any man over the age of 30 who is still single and has always seemingly been single.
79  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SCOTUS rules in favor of man who posted violent threats on Facebook on: June 01, 2015, 04:11:36 pm
Death threats are illegal, but in this case, the vagueness of said threats makes it hard to uphold a conviction.
80  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CO-Sen: Mike Coffman out on: June 01, 2015, 03:50:26 pm
The internal polling numbers must not have been good enough to warrant a run.
81  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Opinion of "Individual A" on: May 30, 2015, 11:22:12 pm
Blackmail is illegal, but I don't think this individual is a horrible person for sticking it to his abuser and I'm not going to call him bad names.
82  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: CT: Malloy Job Approval at All-Time Low on: May 29, 2015, 07:26:03 pm
Still, he's better than Brownback, Scott or any of the other poor GOP governors that won re-election.
83  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Cory Gardner's Crusade to Ban Condoms Continues on: May 28, 2015, 06:34:25 pm
We told you people this would happen. I went to the CVS today and already the condom shelves were completely barren. People are surely stocking up.

Would you mind taking a snap of those barren condom shelves with your cell phone camera Lief, and posting it here? Thanks!

Is this a sick fetish of yours, Torie?

No, his fetish is drawing Republicans into a permanent, irreversible state of power.
84  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Cory Gardner's Crusade to Ban Condoms Continues on: May 28, 2015, 05:37:30 pm
I told you he was a phony. Looks like the mighty moderate didn't wait too long to show his true colors.
85  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Scott Walker: Mandatory Ultrasounds are "Just a Cool Thing" for Women on: May 28, 2015, 07:55:21 am
This is not surprising, as Walker is not the brightest bulb. I'm guessing that is why his public sector resume is so small.
86  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: One person, one vote: SCOTUS to tell us what it means on: May 27, 2015, 06:38:56 pm
There is no way the court isn't going to rule in favor of this considering it has a Republican majority, so we can look forward to elections where it is almost impossible for Republicans to lose.  From what I'm reading, it would shift electoral votes mostly to Republican states.
87  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Meet the Senate's Newest Couple on: May 27, 2015, 01:10:30 am
Not really surprising. It was fairly obvious for quite awhile now.
88  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: AZ-Sen: Salmon, Schweikert considering on: May 26, 2015, 10:20:46 am
Republicans absolutely hate Kirkpatrick and are dying to gerrymander her seat should the court allow them to do so. With that said, Kirkpatrick is exactly the sort of person who could win statewide, because she has won and over performed in rural areas.
89  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2000 U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Evidence that Florida was stolen from Gore in 2000 on: May 22, 2015, 07:39:11 pm
This has been evident for years, but it's not like it really makes a difference at this point, the damage has been done.
90  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Boston University professor: White Males a "problem population" on: May 22, 2015, 01:40:13 pm
Freedom of speech. Remember, it's freedom of speech. Freedom of speech isn't only for angry conservatives. You can't have double standards.
91  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Cruz: Why is the left obsessed with sex? on: May 22, 2015, 10:20:06 am
I think he's confused...
92  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CA-Sen: California Quake on: May 20, 2015, 09:33:11 pm
Sanchez voted against the Iraq War and the Patriot Act, which aren't exactly things that someone very conservative would do, so I wouldn't imagine that many Republicans would be anxious to back her.
93  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Irresponsible, mooching Tea Partier insists he is not irresponsible or a moocher on: May 16, 2015, 11:49:47 pm
One of the reasons insurance companies had restrictions on pre-existing conditions was to keep people from signing up only when they got sick. The enrollment period is middle ground for getting rid of pre-existing conditions, as individuals with pre-existing conditions are no longer barred in perpetuity from getting coverage. If everyone only signed up for insurance the minute they got sick, you'd end up having a system where no one got coverage, because it would be financially sustainable.

11 pm EST.
95  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Stripper requests police protection from conservative Christian state senator on: May 15, 2015, 04:34:02 pm
He met her at a political event and started stalking her after that. It doesn't appear that her being a stripper has anything to do with it, so you can't even defend him on the basis of "don't criticize him for seeing a stripper!". If this is true, he is in the wrong and I'm sorry if that offends some conservatives, but wrong is just wrong.
96  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CA-Sen: California Quake on: May 14, 2015, 06:20:28 pm
Loretta Sanchez is not a conservative or a substitute for a Republican. It's not like there is anything Republicans gain from voting tactically.

What do we have to gain by not voting tactically?

Because there would be very little difference in how either candidate would vote in the Senate should either be elected.

Let's hope that Waukesha County doesn't "find" any votes that save Johnson.

It's a stupid idea to pay out of pocket for medical in the first place, even if you can afford it. Insurance is the way to go, because if you run into financial problems, you might be able to prioritize paying a premium and maintain health coverage should you need it.

Just because he's ill does not mean he should be moved to the front of the line over people who were responsible enough obtain coverage, that just isn't fair, especially when you can't pay.

These right-wing talk show hosts and PACs with money can talk a big game to get people like this man to vote Republican, but I'm going to guess that not one of them would be willing to cover his medical bills in full.
100  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Monopolies to Break Up? on: May 12, 2015, 01:02:31 pm
Energy is a monopoly, but there isn't any legal action that could actually be taken that could change that.
