The idea that political parties which people freely associate with can be "threats to democracy" is troubling.
Hilariously troubling.

Laura Ingraham for Congress in FL-22. It'll happen, just you wait and see.

My best friend, who is a lesbian (or says she is), is now dating a friend of mine (a guy), who apparently broke up with another female friend of mine, because she wanted to be with someone else. Ugh.

What is the problem here?

It's just really strange feeling, she changed her sexuality, etc. and I have to deal with the relationship's consequences. Tongue
Yeah, it is her lifestyle choice.

Like being a dork is yours?
My smoking habit is a lifestyle choice and you have to respect it.

When did they have hearings for Carson? I didn't know about that.

Fake news, like the kind O'Keefe traffics in.

You don't have to believe James O'Keefe (I don't) to believe that the protesters will behave like the violent little Gestapo thugs they are. But any cars they burn, storefronts they smash, or skulls they crack ironically entrenches the man they're trying to stop.

This is a perfect example of the modern conservative where emotion trumps ideology. This story is so perfect-the guy, the sign, the shortness of the article, the pointlessness of all of it.

12  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have you been in a county that voted for Trump this year? on: January 15, 2017, 03:46:58 pm
I was in a county that voted  54-40 for Trump, and then the next morning the first county I went into voted 60-39% for Hillary. I didn't know Osceola County was so large and so Democratic, but the Orlando region is probably my weakest area of general Florida knowledge. I've pretty much been up and down the center of the state several times since the election.

I got into a screaming match at work with an Emory student about the upper middle class and their politics. Eventually it devolved into her holding her hand in my face and shouting "HILLBILLY" every time I tried to start a sentence. This is the first time I've ever been tempted to take a swing at someone during a political discussion.

Woo-wee, go git 'er Jambalaya Jethro. Riches get stitches. Bougies become Ref-ugees.
I'm totally stealing this
Smilo becomes the first Atlas poster to make me laugh out loud in 2017 via post. The forum's getting funnier these days with the likes of Smilo, Crabcake, Virginia, and Cathcon around.

Just give a rest to this paper anyone, they went 'through something', and what they decide belong to them, nobody f**king cared about them before the attack, and barely in France, they are not supposed to be torch of whatever 'Freedom', a concept barely used by anybody in this world.

Have ur pencil.
The greatest of all ironies is how seriously satirists take themselves, which Charlie Hedbo's attackers exposed to the few holdouts who couldn't still see it.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Colorado Republican congressman leaves his own town hall early on: January 15, 2017, 03:38:56 pm
I expect Democrats to give Republicans a taste of their own "Tea Party" medicine, if without some of the uglier stuff. (I suggest that we not shout obscenities, assault staff, or tell lies. I expect us Democrats to also be more witty and rational).

We should make political life rough for pols who believe that because we did not vote for them we no longer matter. 
You'll be smug and silly, and the crowds of pro-Trump olds will scare you guys out the door; well, thats the most likely scenario. The second most likely is crowds of frightfully angry white male young Democrats coming in and turning the place into the Nevada caucuses or Chicago all over again.

It's interesting to see Pence holding together Trump's coalition (as I can see thus far) despite returning to relatively bland GOP orthodoxy.
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Who has the best chance of beating Ted Cruz in a primary challenge in 2018? on: January 15, 2017, 02:45:31 pm
Anyone to me is preferable aside from George P. Bush, who I think will be able to ironically bridge the Trump movement and the establishment if he campaigns as a Mike Pence style, softly-pro Trump Republican. Actually, in some regards, he could be like Rick Perry: a garden variety red (Atlas blue) state Republican who basically is Tim Pawlenty with some flavor.

My ideal Texan Senator is Debra Medina, but she won't ever win even if Glen Beck didn't smear her as a truther.
18  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Sounds like McMullin might be about to announce a run on: January 15, 2017, 12:54:42 pm
ugh.

Hatch has overstayed his welcome. We need someone new.
"What do you call a senator who's been in Washington for decades? You call him home"- paraphrase of Orrin hatch during his first senate campaign
Well yeah, but that is why we have Mia Love, Jon Huntsman, or Jason Chaffertz to replace him. Why should Egg McMuffin consider himself remotely comparable to them.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obama: No more free rides for Cubans on: January 15, 2017, 12:51:39 pm
I actually agree with this - Either make everyone play by the rules that Cuban immigrants play by or make the Cubans play by everyone elses rules. This isn't the 60s - we're not in an engagement with Cuba anymore.
Coming from South Florida, where almost every Cuban American I know is either working/middle class or somewhat affluent, I always thought that it was bizarre that we would turn back boat after boat of arriving Haitian illegal immigrants coming from a country plagued by poverty like no other in our hemisphere. Growing up in my town's majority Haitian corner, I actually have found that Haitian immigrants are more integrated and assimilate easier.

On the other contrary, most Cuban-Americans I know seem to have a blood lust for revenge against Castro but also lack the desire to return and shape Cuba post-Castro. These are second/third generation immigrants who still have a strong identification as Cuban yet have no desire to be part of Cuba. It always sorta annoyed me.

Can't wait to watch this loser go down in flames again.

What did he lost besides Presidential nomunation?Huh? "Activists" of both sorts continue to amuse me - i never met more hateful people in my life.... And after that they still ask - why i dislike them)))))
Do you know anything about what you're talking about here?

Allen West made it clear that he was packing heat at his town halls. I went to almost all of them. They were brutal, ugly, nasty affairs for everyone unfortunately involved.

Charlie Hedbo is still terrifible either way.
