Progressive with a libertarian flair, much like Ron Wyden.

He'll pick Hillary to give her a boost for 2016.

No, but as noted by AngryWeasel, it is not a free market society either.

But the usual suspects are too cool for that.

It is my greatest shame, from when I was a fascist for a couple weeks in early 2013.
In your defense, it still was a lot better than my own year long flirtation with white nationalism.

Cogendism.

The Pope's politically wrong, but Andrew Cuomo is a huge asswipe, so I voted for the Pope.

NYE would be a great National Security Advisor since he'd spam your desk with memos about every international crisis.

I leave to go take the bar tomorrow. At this point, I'm so exhausted I am just happy it will be all over on Wednesday night one way or the other.
Best of luck! I'm sure you'll do fine!

The military-industrial complex gets more money, the Taliban gets a ton of new weapons, and we get out. I guess everyone really does win in this scenario....

Did you read the article? Are the Taliban going to weaponize the air conditioners. If the shipping costs are greater than the value of bringing it back, this is a smart move.
I did, but I have seen other news reports that mention military hardware as well.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: If President Obama gets impeached... on: July 26, 2014, 07:25:21 pm
There is no chance of Obama being impeached to begin with. If Bush couldn't get even the House to impeach him, neither will Obama.

While I agree that Obama is very unlikely to be impeached,  your comparison to Bush is a non sequitur.  Clearly republicans are much more impeach-happy.
I don't disagree with you on that, but I think Boehnor would block an impeachment vote for the same reasons Pelosi blocked Kucinich's impeachment vote.

Art Laffer is an interesting choice. I assume Buchanan and several others will jump into the race as well. Does the USSR still collapse as in reality?

So yeah, today, I was in town, minding my own business, when all of a sudden this uncleanly rabble of pro-Palestinian protestors came blundering down the street, waving their bloody flags and poorly crafted placards whilst simultaneously gibbering 'free Palestine' and 'down with Israel', or some rubbish like that. I had half a mind to shout 'go Israel' or somesuch other provocation, but in the end my lack of backbone got in the way of that. However, once the circus had passed, I spied a solitary Palestinian flag that they'd left behind. So, surreptitiously, I walked over, snatched the flag, which I then proceeded to dump in the nearest bin. Made a statement and all that.

Apparently some of the protestors also got into a bit of a ruckus with some dudes outside a pub. Ouch.
The pro-Palestine types are the worst even when they are right. You were right to do that.

My mom fell for this guy who was selling magazines door to door about two years ago. Other than that, no.

I did too last year. It cost me $50, but thats not as bad as many scams get, I suppose.
Yeah, I think my mom only lost twenty dollars to help put this so called "law student" through school. We got an email from a Nigerian prince once as well, but my mom just laughed and deleted it.

It's definitely both.

19  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Weird dreams you've had involving politicians on: July 26, 2014, 11:35:59 am
Bump.

I met Governor Blanco in my dream last night!
Weird, I too had a political dream last night. It was about C-PAC. I guess my family was having a big reunion in Myrtle Beach for some reason and we were on a charter boat fishing. Somehow I ended up on a helicopter and fell out of it (which jolted me awake).

When I fell back asleep, I resumed my dream as I sometimes do, and was in the ocean by the hotel. So I swam to shore and entered. I was in the hallway when I saw signs for C-PAC, so I went by and saw several 2016 contenders-Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, and Bobby Jindal. I shook Jebs hand and tried to get my picture taken with Christie (who was like 7'5 and 600 pounds in the dream with giant Rick Santorum's grandpa hands), but the lady who took the picture randomly took a picture of the roof instead and walked off. I tried to shake Rand Paul's hand, but somehow the dream took me to my own house and I was trying to arrange to see a movie (IIRC, it was some type of Dylan biopic) with this girl I've been texting as of late IRL. Bizarre dream.

Always agree.
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If executions happen, should the guillotine be used? on: July 26, 2014, 11:23:03 am
No. Hanging should be brought back. The guillotine, quite apart from its unfortunate connotations, is just so... French.
I am on the fence about the death penalty, but I do support bringing the public hanging back. It will either deter crime or shock people in supporting the abolition of capital punishment. As I change my tune on this issue every other week, I'd be satisfied with either result.

Wow. A new low for Snowstalker.

Whatever, Max.

For the record, I fully get where one might have seen connotations in that post. But it's impossible to deny that, on balance, D-NY is one of the worst avatars on the forum.

For the record I have Sephardi ancestry on my father's side.
I thought I was on your ignore list. I see your use of the ignore function is as consistent as your ideology.

AH.com should stick to alternate history if this is what results.

You didn't see buses full of Japanese tourists? They're everywhere.
I have heard this cliche about a lot of places, but the only time I have ever seen this was when I was in DC. I guess going to Yellowstone is like an American going to Mt. Fuji.
