The cause of most problems in today's society is the fact that stupid people are allowed to breed.

I'd say it's that they have internet access.

Abortion should be safe, legal, and encouraged, if not mandatory for immature teenage girls who are driving up our poverty rate.
You beat me to it. I don't even have words for that. Mandatory abortions...

The cause of most problems in today's society is the fact that stupid people are allowed to breed. In fact, they're fast out-pacing non stupid people. Most issues we have today, including viral videos, welfare families, victimhood mentalities, and most hate issues are simply the chickens coming home to roost. I think you ought to have to get a license to have a child, and you have to pass the same tests as you do to adopt a child. Nobody hears about an alcoholic, heroin-addicted, non-functioning junkie being granted custody of a child, and yet that tramp is allowed to pop out a kid.

Yeah, life is literally Idiocracy.

McKinley had already won a second term in 1900. It would be someone else in 1904.

Workout; food coma; some Sam Adams. This is exactly how I want to feel getting home everyday.

I'm good at parts 2 and 3.

Part 1 allows parts 2 and 3 to perpetuate, despite, their lack of healthfulness. Beyond that, however, the post-workout lull, combined with the other two, is really something. Only reason I'm not asleep tright now is my gosh darned housemate making me watch "Ghost in the Shell".

Worst (I love almost all of Nathan's posts, so this is based on the implication that such is a "bad" thing):
California's next Governor:



Jesus Christ he looks like Patrick Bateman.

Best (usually synonymous with "most recent"):
Also, I'd like to note that any answer to "greatest city in the world" other than New York City is the wrong answer. (And the only other answer that is defensible is London). Paris is just a dirtier, older, French-speaking version of NYC, and while Jerusalem is very cool from a touristy/archaeological/religious perspective, it's nowhere near large/diverse/relevant to the modern economy enough to even count as a serious answer.

The idea that being 'relevant to the modern economy' is ipso facto (or even mutatis mutandis) 'greater' than not being is certainly a compelling one, but it strikes me as liable to great a pretty big 'great'/'good' distinction.

I voted for Russia on literary grounds, conceding that in most other ways it's a pretty awful country.

I figured why not? How y'all doing? What'cha got coming up?

I've got a presentation I've done most of the work on (and seen no contribution at all from group member three) on Friday. After that, it's Criminology and Intro to Russian I on Tuesday, Intro to Corrections on Wednesday, and an online exam for Intro to Digital Forensics that closes next Friday night.  Outside of the Hell that will be Tuesday, it's a relatively light load since five of my seventeen credits are outside the classroom/directed study (with a total of nearly eighty submitted pages written--after double spacing).

Both are among the countries I admire most. Edge goes to Russia for being Third Rome, colonizers of Siberia, and the leading light of Orthodox piety.

What does any of this even mean?

I think the sassy chip in the Jerrybot is malfunctioning. Better call Apple.
Or it's finals week and I really don't have time for racists like you or douchbags like Cathcon.

Not familiar with traditional spelling, but I believe it's "douchebag".

In all honesty, sounds like stress is getting the best of you.

I actually openly admit to thinking the role of the nuclear family in society should be weakened, but it should be weakened in favor of extended support networks of collateral relations, not in favor of 'individual negative rights TO THE EXTREME!!!' atomization.

Makes sense.

3-17 days of fighting before the PRC surrenders.  Depends on how long they want to get their ass handed to them.
It would be the other way around.

What's so bad about the post.  I just posted that I think it was more likely that the opposite would be true.
I believe posts that are stupid and based in post election pouting tend to get filed under "absurd" or "ignorant."

Prior to Super Tuesday, there were few other Democratic contests, focusing public attention on the Republican nomination race until March. On February 8th, shortly after Ferraro's own victory in the Blue Hen State, MacKenzie would claim a narrow plurality with the support of Mike Castle and the local credit card industry. The run-up to the February 19th South Carolina Primary saw Dan Quayle's withdrawal from the race. Having already failed to catch fire in Iowa, South Carolina was intended to be his last hope. Nevertheless, with two Southerners on the ballot--Liddy Dole, who had been endowed with a significant war chest, and Lamar Alexander, whose 1996 campaign had given him an extensive ground game in the state--it was clear that the Indiana Senator faced better career prospects refocusing on his legislative work. The state's military vote was offering Quayle no favors either when offered a veteran and a former Secretary of Defense. The Senator's endorsement went to his colleague and the former First Lady, Elizabeth Dole, a significant coup considering her tight numbers against Alexander. On February 19th, 2000, Dole claimed victory in the Palmetto State. Pundits were already discussing a "Dole/Quayle" ticket to reclaim the heartland for the GOP.

Nevertheless, three days later, Dole's momentum would be stopped cold. On February 22nd, MacKenzie's attempts to peel away moderate voters in Michigan would be met with defeat as Mattingly walked away with 63% of the vote and a plurality or greater in every county in the state. In Arizona, the Michigan Governor had secured the support of fellow Vietnam veteran Senator John McCain and former Governor Evan Mecham. And, while former Senator Barry Goldwater's power had faded in the past decade and a half, his vocal support for O'Connor was a notable snub to those who had lobbied for his endorsement, including MacKenzie. Mattingly's Arizona and Michigan victories were supplemented by a win in the North Dakota Caucus. Dole could console herself with victory in Virginia, meanwhile. After South Carolina, both Alexander and Cheney dropped out, endorsing Dole.

On the Democratic side, the idea of "Westmentum" was building, as the former Senator walked away with easy victory in Washington State, the "capitol of granola liberalism" as Westman himself called it. Despite the state's status as a beauty contest, it contributed to a narrative that the Montanan was leading a youth-and-peasant horde against the political and economic elites. This was especially important as Super Tuesday approached and Westman's opponents possessed significant advantages in upcoming states.

Literally 1900.
How does a 19th century election get the distinction of being the defining election of the next century?

Regardless of whether you believe a century begins at "1900" or "1901", the results of 1900 decided who would be sworn in on the 4th day of March in 1901, essentially deciding politics for the next century or so, until the 2000 election came along.

I make less money than some of my housemates; others have no job. I rent in a house in Detroit south of Six Mile. While I'm sure my family makes more than my neighbors, I personally probably make less than those families on this street that do work (there are retirees however).
