My beef with Lincoln is not the standard Libertarian belief. I do believe the Civil War was necessary. However, it was not necessary to preserve the union. If Lincoln went to war, to free the slaves initially, and to bring them back to the Northern States, while letting the south go, I would support him. However, he didn't care about slaves, and went to war to preserve a union composed of statist racists. He is a horrible male.

Washington, the Adamses, Van Buren, and Taylor.

Jefferson personally was a monster. Intelligence can't make up for everything.

"Japan General Discussion" should be banned from any self-respecting English-speaking website.

Bullsh**t. A cabinet reshuffle is going more pear-shaped than I've seen or heard of any cabinet reshuffle going since Macmillan's Night of the Long Knives. This is comedy, this is drama, this is everything we (or, at least, I) follow international politics for. It wouldn't be self-respecting of us not to have this thread.

I still don't get what could possibly be so great about Mahler if one presumes that folk and popular musical forms are all degenerate and false consciousness-inducing products of the 'culture industry'. Guess there's some things I'll just never understand.

Offends or actively insults religious sensibilities one time too many.

Is this the right place to complain about Theodor W. Adorno's truly ridiculous degree of elitism for somebody who was supposedly a Marxist, and the profoundly unfortunate views of women inherent in the Minima Moralia's analysis of relationships and marriage?

The carpetbagger thoroughly deserves the harsh and pitiless spanking that the Mistress of New Hampshire Politics will administer come the fourth.

Note to the humorless among us: I'm joking.

The newly appointed industry minister Yoichi Miyazawa which replaced Yuko Obuchi who herself quit after a few days due to another scandal admitted that his underlings had spent office cash at a S&M sex bar.

Oh dear Jesus this is great.

On the other hand I really doubt any of these scandals will lead to Shinzō Abe's departure.  What took him down last time was not the scandals per say but scandals PLUS DPJ led alliance taking over the upper house.  Once the scandals hit, the DPJ was justified in blocking everything that the Shinzō Abe regime was doing on the principle that these scandals proved that Shinzō Abe lost the right to rule.  Such a situation is not in place today with the opposition parties still nowhere in terms of being able to join forces and challenge LDP.  Unless LDP sees a danger of losing the next round of elections, Shinzō Abe is safe.

I don't have a good track record of predicting LDP leadership changes.

I have now sent him a PM and urged him to stop posting "Junk Poll !" all the time.

Otherwise he'll get some points from me in future.

Wink

On that topic, I decided to do a bit of research.

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk district!
[I wasn't sure whether or not to include this one]

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

According to junk polls!

Junk poll!

This is a junk poll. Not even McArthur's internal puts him up this much (it was 44-37).

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Junk poll!

Joke poll.

The junkiest of the junky polls.

As you can see, all but two are from the past three days.

'Junk district!' is actually sort of amusing in my opinion, but other than that...yeah.

I doubt Udall will only get 39% of the vote, even if he loses. I'm not writing him off yet.

Oh, he'll get more than 39% of the vote, but I wouldn't be shocked if he lost by seven points.

I can't be certain about the Boston City Council, but in the case of the Massachusetts General Court, I assure you, it's entirely fair to them.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: CO: Reuters/Ipsos: Gardner in the lead on: October 22, 2014, 07:34:38 pm
I believe the Massachusetts legislature and the Boston City Council feel that way, given their history of fashioning electoral districts.

But I wonder what that has to do with this poll.

I wonder why you chose to bring this up, considering I am not a Massachusetts legislator nor a Boston City Councillor.

Cory Gardner is dominating with white voters.

Yes yes yes, we know. We know how much you love white voters and that you think they're the ultimate arbiters of everything right with the world. We know.

As much as I despise the turtle, he's not worth sacrificing all these potential judicial nominations. Option 1. Though option 2 occurring would be quite hilarious.

A bunch of Japanese firms and government agencies have offered to help develop a new capital for Andhra Pradesh. Japanese-Indian relations have long been a special area of interest for Abe.
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Japan General Discussion on: October 21, 2014, 07:10:47 pm
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Abe is no longer in office by the end of the year if this goes on. (Not to overstate the case--I wouldn't be surprised if he is still in office either.)

If he's out, who do you think will replace him?

I've heard murmurs about Suga Yoshihide (ugh) and Kishida Fumio (meh), but I don't have a good track record of predicting LDP leadership changes. If I did, Tanigaki would have been Prime Minister for the past two years.

Is there any chance Aso might come back for another go as PM?

God, I hope not.

Caught roundly insulting political opponents not realizing that her mic was on. (The fact that she'd almost certainly be justified in her insults wouldn't save her.)
