1  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Shooting near Zurich Islamic center on: December 20, 2016, 03:41:36 pm
The gunman apparently committed another homicide in Zurich a few days ago and shot himself after the attack on the mosque. The police reported he was a Swiss citizen of Ghanaian origin. All of the victims at the mosque are Somalian.

Was the attacker Muslim, Christian or Pagan?

The police say they have evidence the man was entangled in occultism but his exact motives are far from clear at this point.

Even after their stunning win, the Atlas forum Trump supporters are much more restrained than many resident Hillary supporters were before election day.

My answer would be McMullin. I'm glad I wasn't in a position to vote, though.


Also, what a disgusting thread this has become.
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Which state stunned you the most? on: November 10, 2016, 03:47:14 am
Florida and, to a lesser degree, Pennsylvania but that was because of the weird way some results were reported on CNN. Even at the point when most of the votes in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach were already in, CNN's maps on TV reported that only a minority of votes had been tallied in these counties. Blindly trusting these figures and expecting a lot more Democratic votes to be added in the following hour, I thought far too long that Clinton was actually on track to win the state.

CNN did the same with Allegheny County, even John King got visibly confused during the broadcast! When more than two thirds of the votes were counted in in PA as a whole, the map showed Clinton with around 320,000 votes in Allegheny and a lead of roughly 100,000 votes with only 25% reporting. This led John King to pause for a brief moment and then claim that this meant Clinton might still catch up with Trump in the state.

I thought it might happen at around 9 pm ET when Trump had a sizable lead in Florida and it became clear most of the votes in Dem strongholds had been tallied. For quite some time before CNN kept showing only 19% had been counted in Broward so their pundits claimed Clinton could still win, both of which turned out to be wrong. That was confusing and embarrassing on CNN's part.

Paul Ryan's side, which for all its faults at least doesn't regard politics as mere entertainment.

21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Overall effect of the debates on: October 20, 2016, 02:49:24 am
The poll numbers clearly show that Clinton has benefitted from the three debates. Trump simply can't compete with Clinton when it comes to handling detailed policy questions.

That said, assuming the election is already lost for him I think Trump did what he had to do in last night's debate. Claiming the election was rigged is a mistake but he stopped the bleeding by being calmer and more considerate than before. And thanks to the emphasis on SC nominations and abortion right at the beginning of the debate he gave hesitant right-leaning voters a reason to hold their nose and cast a ballot for him.

23  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL-SEN: How big will the rubioslide be? on: October 20, 2016, 02:26:52 am
Polls suggest Rubio is overperforming Trump by a lot so I expect his margin of victory to end up in the high single digits.

McMullin, from a political point of view but also because we absolutely need some excitement at the state level in an otherwise depressing race.
