Garth, because the name reminds me of Garth Hudson and I figured he needs at least one vote.

Oh hell.
3  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Between Two Majorities: 2014-2030 | The Cordray Administration on: Today at 01:12:46 pm
What exactly happens to the deficit/debt in the Cordray era? Both in terms of raw numbers/shares of GDP and as political issues

Hard to gauge but they need to grow the economy considerably and to reduce the debt to GDP ratio. Both for the country's and average Americans' bottom line. That's the key. Cordray will need to stimulate a major economic boom in the 2020s to erase the crisis.
What if he fails.....just in time for 2032! Tongue

I like the level of detail you're putting into this. 300,000 Bernie bros in Burlington aside this has been a very fun read!

Putin (barely a dictator), Erdogan (ditto), and Assad (who is the good guy anyway).

In not entirely shocking news, Douglas Carswell is resigning from UKIP.
Funny he doesn't think he floor crossing requires a by election now...

Anyway he has no future with the tories, maybe he should try forming a libertarian UK brand
I tweeted that to him and Daniel Hannan earlier.

The Thai Royal Family is really only a couple yards behind the House of Saud in general sleaziness.

Not for one minute. Before the election I was repelled briefly by Bushgate but that was all.

Are you serious? Paying for dirt is wrong period? lol didnt you read about how Hillary tried to bribe Tom Arnold? She was literally on the phone begging Tom Arnold to save her ass in the waning days of the campaign. The former Secretary of State forced to beg Tom freaking Arnold.
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: When does the winning start? on: March 25, 2017, 01:47:24 pm
The winning is happening.  It is the recently vacated home on the street where an immigrant family used to live.  You might not know it without looking closely, but the food on the table is rotten because it was left without time to clean it up, and while the TV is on, no one is there to watch it apart from the solitary teddy bear sitting on the corner of the sofa.
That's a win right there too!

I wish Trump's non-interventionist policy meant something along the lines of Pat Buchanan/Ron Paul, not this bipolar delusional emulation of "Reagan toughness." Christ, this was exactly what I've been afraid of since Obama and Trump have dragged us back in.

This type of stuff has serious blowback. It won't be forgotten.

16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Florida 2018 Gubernatorial on: March 24, 2017, 08:28:34 pm
I'm really hoping John Morgan runs for Governor. He's got that nice southern charm and could reinvigorate the Southern Democrats.

His views? They are no less important then charm.

- Legalize marijuana
- Raise the minimum wage
- Stricter enforcement of labor laws
- Criminal justice reform (against private prisons)
- Lower the cost of prescription drugs and crack down on drug companies
- Invest in public schools and teachers (against charter schools)

He's a solid candidate, and I'll be enthusiastically campaigning for him when he decides to run.






In short - a left-wing Democrat. We will see, but - i am skeptical.
I dunno if I'd call him a left-winger, though. He has a Jim Justice quality to him but with more progressive policy positions.

Florida now is, probably, more progressive then West Virginia. The question is - by how much?
Probably?!

No we didn't. We come from outer space because we were put in volcanoes where our spirits were held prisoner. Duh.

-Green/Community Politics Smiley
21  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Former russian Duma member turned Putin-critic, Voronenkov, killed in Kiev on: March 24, 2017, 11:37:54 am
So, for the very staunch Putin supporters out there, is the explanation for these killings/attacks more "Fake news!" or more "They got exactly what they deserved"?
A combination of both. This guy could've been killed by Ukrainian anti-Putin activists for all we know-he was, in American parlance, for the invasion of the Crimea before he was against it. He wasn't from what I've read a particularly liked figure.

I mean, I could make a joke about how the reporter who fell down the stairs happened to be a drunk, but that doesn't matter. Putin killed her because he's evil but at least Castro gave the Cubans healthcare, amirite?

I'm watching CSPAN
C-SPAN is my favorite channel. The call-in programs are the best.

What a petty thing to go down by.   Too bad it wasn't Mimi Walter's district or something.
Can't you just wish you guys could beat her instead of wishing for her career to be ruined?

Didn't know you could hear us from a top your high-horse.
That high horse seems to be all he has now.
It's a glorious stallion named Pencer, and it shall trample you, ye sad loser peasants. Sad!

He lied to Congress. He'll probably have to resign.

No on both accounts.
