Hagan leads in the polls and Roberts trails. Remarkably enough, the answer to this question is clear, and is the opposite of what it was a month ago.

Update could conceivably pass the Bechdel test through a conversation for which Bushie was present but not participating, but I doubt it has.

Unfortunately Walker, but both of them probably will.

Not imperialism.

Gandhi would beg to differ.

I'm currently reconsidering (haven't finished reconsidering; am still in the process) my absolutely pacifist stance, and this is part of the reason why.

Quote from: Simone Weil
Non-violence is no good unless it is effective. Hence the young man's question to Gandhi about his sister. The answer should have been: use force unless you are such that you can defend her with as much chance of success without violence. Unless you possess a radiance of which the energy (that is to say, the possible effectiveness in the most material sense of the word) is equal to that contained in your muscles.

We should strive to become such that we are able to be nonviolent.

This also depends on the adversary.

What on Earth is so hard about just not having sex unless the signals are clear?

Not as worried here as in Iowa.

Glad you responded morty, quick question. the consent that is implicitly granted to you by virtue of enticing your date to enter your residence- does it also cover the kinky stuff?

asking for a friend

The whole 'entering one's residence' thing is like something out of Varney the Vampire.

WillipsBrighton, say something a rapist wouldn't say. Not to prove anything. Just to help my peace of mind about sharing a forum with you. Please. Anything.

When I say it will be ending soon, I don't mean anytime in the immediate future.  I believe we are somewhere between 7 and 10 years away.  That's my best guess.  However, the Bible clearly says no one knows the day nor the hour that the Son of man will return, but based on current events especially in Europe and the Middle East, I think we can get an idea.

Quote from: Walter Benjamin
Surely the time of the soothsayers, who divined what lay hidden in the lap of the future, was experienced neither as homogenous nor as empty. Whoever keeps this in mind will perhaps have an idea of how past time was experienced as remembrance: namely, just the same way. It is well-known that the Jews were forbidden to look into the future. The Torah and the prayers instructed them, by contrast, in remembrance. This disenchanted those who fell prey to the future, who sought advice from the soothsayers. For that reason the future did not, however, turn into a homogenous and empty time for the Jews. For in it every second was the narrow gate, through which the Messiah could enter.

I'm not sure Obamanation's the worst poster on the forum any more.

I am good at drawing and accurate, but I may not have the patience for it.

Ugh. Let me guess, Article 18 of the Statute of Workers is on the chopping block. Am I close?

Is there any hope at all that the labor market reform gets defeated or significantly altered but the political reform goes through anyway?
18  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: The Oxford School of Absurdity, Ignorance, and Bad Posts IV on: September 30, 2014, 11:04:02 am
Isn't this the same poster who claims to be a 'socialist' because he thinks poor people are too stupid to manage their own affairs?
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Italy 2014: Try to take over Europe! on: September 29, 2014, 04:02:13 pm
Dare I ask how the political reform is going?

There is no way anyone can justify giving his campaign anything other than an F.

Welcome. I'd invite you to see New England in the fall, but by November most of the bloom is off the rose (or maple), at least around here.

But, of course, we will do the usual Atlas thing and remember that all religion is good and wholesome and wonderful and big, fat meanies like memphis, opebo (RIP), and myself should refrain from hurting feelings.
