102  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Do you support race-based affirmative action in college admissions? on: November 21, 2016, 02:07:17 pm
Lean no, but I appreciate the sentiment behind AA programs. I think a multitude of factors should play a role in college admissions, but as others have already mentioned, I prefer income-based programs over race-based ones.

number 2

 you voted for literally the option what is the definition of anti libertarianism .

Considering he has a chart in his signature that shows he isn't exactly the "LibertarianRepublican" his username would lead you to believe anymore, your comment is superfluous. People change ideologically.

Politically 100% pro-choice, but I recuse myself from taking a moral position because A. I'm a man, so my opinion doesn't really matter in the first place, B. I don't take my morals from religious doctrine and C. because I can't quite distinguish exactly what my position is. I don't like the idea of abortion, but hard truths are often found in the "real world" and I accept that.

If this guy didn't have serious influence over the already polarizing President-elect, he'd make a greater SNL character.

Tulsi Gabbard -- Democrat, Sanders supporter and combat veteran -- is under consideration for UN ambassador, per senior Trump aide

This is fcking bizarre. I used to have such a crush on Tulsi Gabbard because she was pro-Bernie and I got to see her speak at the rally Bernie held at my school, but now I'm just plain disgusted.

Option 2 pretty easily. Economy > social issues, and a lot of social conservatism gets blocked in SCOTUS challenges anyway.
108  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Pro-choicers: Who would you vote for? on: November 20, 2016, 10:17:12 pm
Depends where I live, what the other positions of these hypothetical candidates are, and what the balance of power in Congress (or whatever office this person is running for) looks like.

If this is Generic D vs. Generic R other than this issue, the Democrat.

A majority of the court sides with BaconKing, the votes of BRTD and hashemite must be counted.

A majority opinion  and a dissenting opinion will be written later.
Regards,
The Supreme Court

So this quite literally means that the runoff election ended in an exact tie?

Am I the only one thinking that the income taxes should be significantly higher for every bracket other than the very bottom one?

What would your numbers be?

Probably something along the lines of:

0%    $0 - $24,999
3%    $25,000 - $49,999
6.5%    $50,000 - $99,999
10.5%    $100,000 - $249,999
18.25%   $250,000 - $999,999
28.5%   $1,000,000+

Circle jerk for posters who just want to insult other posters and use foul language.

51/100 - privileged. A lot of them were answered more liberally, some were answered more conservatively. I'd say my range is between 45 and 60.

A mixture of

Let's look at what he's done so far:

- Promoted the aider and abbeter of many a child molester to the Ambassador of Israel
- Promoted Senator "Marion Three" to Attorney General
- Promoted the Breitbart man, leader of the website behind such great articles as "The Simple Solution to Online 'Harassment' is Simple: Women should log off", "There's No Hiring Bias Against Women in Tech, They Just Suck At Interviews", and my favorite "Gabby Giffords: The Gun Control Movement's Human Shield" to Chief Counsel to the President.

Strongly disapprove.

and

Don't know.  I will adopt a 'wait-and-see' approach here.

So how does the Sessions pick affect pot?

Very positively, if you're a fan of DEA raids.

So I'm not at all good with numbers, but do we know anyone who can calculate revenue, and also tell us where we could trim some of the fat within the expenditures themselves? Perhaps cuts to "general govt" as well as "other"?

123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Breaking..........Trump to meet with Romney this weekend.......... on: November 17, 2016, 08:39:48 pm
Maybe Romney for HHS? He would be the most qualified Republican to run that department at this point.

I'd actually be okay with this, but alas, I fear this story is just to make Trump look like a "nice guy" to disaffected GOPers

Have we done any research into seeing if Mike Gravel has genetic links to both Bernie Sanders and Ron Paul?
125  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: oregon court rules that 'nonbinary' is a legal gender on: November 17, 2016, 08:36:32 pm

Because Transgenderism and gender dysphoria are real things, and people shouldn't be forced to choose between male and female on any govt. Document that asks for their gender.

I'm all for being inclusive, but chuck in an "Other" option, or this list is going to get mighty long.

This is very reminiscent of the "I'm okay with gay people, I just don't want them to get married. Call it a 'domestic partnership' instead" argument.
