The GOP WILL NOT GET MY VOTE. YOU MUST HAVE AN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN ON THE TICKET!!!!!!!Thanks for flipping us evangelicals off GOP

No sane person will cry over losing the fundie vote.

Are you saying fundies aren't sane? I happen to be quite sane.


Not my diagnosis.

I was referring to:

That is a disgusting post that deserved to be infracted. Taking posting advice from Snowstalker is not a good idea.

I also made a similar comment which was similarly censored.

Considering your past statements on racial matters, I do not see what is so wrong with what I said in the context given. Posts like the ones we are discussing are objectively bad and are bound to offend. There is no humor in the Holocaust, or racial epithets, to most people on this forum.

Wow, Napoleon being a dick? I'm shocked!
Finding Holocaust jokes disgusting does not qualify as "being a dick" for normal people. Please continue with your intelligent contributions.

It was me. Show me the facts on that and we'll talk.

I hope that you're not implying that this post is only unacceptable because Seatown isn't citing his sources.

That is, unfortunately, standard moderation policy. When I called Snowstalker a racist, I had to show Inks the proof that Snowstalker was indeed a racist to get the points removed.

A smug, self-important individual who passes for an "intellectual" in the modern GOP, if only because he actually is serious about "entitlement reform."

Except when Republicans are in office, of course.

I cannot support this.  It makes it to easy for a small group of Senators to hold up the Senate and attack their political opponents.

It is already easy for a single Senator to do that. There are solutions for that.

     Occasional updates would be nice. Mississippi has a nasty tendency to get polled about once per cycle.

The once a decade Census is all we need to know.....

No, because he does, indeed, follow the Catholic Church's backwards-ass social morality.

Have you heard the Paul Ryan Personal Dictionary definition of the phrase 'preferential option for the poor'?

No, but I have heard the phrase 'ignorant, socially-unaware, anti-choice, homophobic dipstick'.

Or in other words, Catholic.

You're edgy.

Naturally. One could impale themselves on my state's southern border.

I thought we were going to use the surplus for the capital relocation project.  Would this bill conflict with that plan?

Simfan's proposal called for us to issue bonds, IIRC.

The two arent mutually exclusive.

Why the hell would we nominate Crist?

Because he can actually win.

Some things are more important than winning.

Well, good for Romney. I don't know if he's going to win or not, but he needed a game changer, and this was the right way to do it.

Ryan is more of the same.
7691  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Romney/Ryan is first major party ticket with no Protestant on it. on: August 11, 2012, 08:35:29 am
Neither party has a Protestant in the ticket.
Barack Obama is a Protestant.

The issue is that he isn't the right kind of Protestant.

The white kind of Protestant?

Aye
7693  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: It isn't Ryan on: August 11, 2012, 08:29:23 am
Ryan is not a game changer. He is not the answer. This is a huge blunder for Romney haha.
7694  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: It isn't Ryan on: August 11, 2012, 01:33:03 am
Wishful thinking.

Romney is well aware.

I suppose you'll be deleting this thread if you're wrong? Tongue

How could I be wrong? Wink

So I'm thinking, how do we reconcile what Hagrid has just with our own significant noninterventist view. It seems like proper defense has always taking a back seat to the combined left's desire for massive domestic programs and I believe that has been to our ill.

That is funny. I suppose our desire for massive domestic social programs allowed for the expansion of private health care, tax cuts and a balanced budget (actually a surplus)? I advise you find more effective talking points if you want to be a superpartisan.
7697  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / It isn't Ryan on: August 11, 2012, 12:16:43 am
It is not Paul Ryan.

Lol Crist is losing Independents and can't break the margin of error against Scott. Also of note: Malloy so awful that he has worse approvals than Scott even with the advantage of a more favorable partisan environment.

Wasn't McCain's Veep supposed to be Lieberman but his advisors wanted a right-winger? Although I dunno if it was leaked as Lieberman before hand...

(and before people say that Lieberman is a right-winger, on non-foreign matters he isn't even a moderate)

He isn't a moderate, he is a conservative.
7700  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE STANDING COMMITTEE: Gov't Oversight and Reform (Court Reform) on: August 10, 2012, 09:58:42 pm
I don't understand why this idea is still being debated. The court has functioned fine for 8 years with three members. There's barely anything for us to do as is, but obviously reducing the court to two members would result in ties, and reducing it to one member would be giving a single person far too much power. So we have three... and it's just the right number.

Wait...why are we talking about reducing the size of the Court? It would be better to expand the Court.
