1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Obama be remembered in the top 10 of Presidents? on: June 30, 2015, 09:16:57 pm
Top ten? No. Top twenty? Most likely. I could go into detail if anyone cares, but Leinad has done a much better job at articulating what I basically feel about Obama.

3 stars, I guess. I don't hate it like I hate California, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Utah, etc.

Nineteen Eighty-Four was a dystopian novel not a manual for how to change history.

What does that have to do with this topic?
Might have had two tabs open at once. I've posted in the wrong threads before because of that.
4  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Who was the lesser evil in the Iran-Iraq war on: June 30, 2015, 07:58:08 pm
Both were terrible. Bathism vs. Shia fundamentalism. But in the end....
Clearly Iraq (not pro-Islamic fundamentalism)
5  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Cliven Bundy got a private meeting with Rand Paul on: June 30, 2015, 06:01:27 pm
A cheap attempt by the Paul campaign to steal back some potential Cruz voters, nothing more.

I mean, really, good people meet with bad people all of the time. Case in point....

Obviously Carter. He has a charm to him.

Can we ban the french flag? The whole Vichy thing was rather nasty too.

Horrendous. 1 star.
10  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should the U.S. sign and ratify the Convention on Cluster Munitions? on: June 30, 2015, 11:31:35 am
What would be the point? We'd just disobey it.
11  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL-Sen: Murphy In on: June 30, 2015, 11:24:52 am
lol giving up a safe house seat to run for a Senate race he's not going to win.
I disagree-Murphy is pretty well liked by Republicans, and DeSantis (who I am supporting FWIW) is a strong-but not perfect-candidate either.
12  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Erasing the Confederacy -How Far Would you Go? on: June 29, 2015, 10:08:25 pm
This, but allow Confederate license plates if the car owner is willing to pay a fee to obtain it from the state. Who are the five voters who want to ban private homeowners from flying a flag? Show yourselves, statists! Tongue
13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election Results / Re: Fulani in Idaho on: June 29, 2015, 10:05:23 pm
I would have thought she'd do slightly better, like 0.80%, even in Idaho. Not that I ever cared.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Prior to the ruling, only a handful of Congressional Republicans were in favor on: June 29, 2015, 09:58:21 pm
But Torie, you want a Republican President to appoint Supreme Court justices who would vote to overturn this decision, if they got the chance.  No?
Ted Olsen will overturn SSM?

in which shua compares gay marriages and bar mitzvahs to burning qur'ans:

This is an outrage and massive infringement on the personal freedom of these bakers! What's next, they'll be forced to bake cakes for blacks and Hispanics, because of a religiously justified opposition to their skin color!?

I wonder if people believe a baker should be allowed to close their doors to Jews looking for a cake for a bar mitzvah because of the baker's religious views.

I wonder if people believe a Muslim bookseller should have to sell an (Arabic) Quran to Pastor Terry Jones. 

(No, I don't really wonder, I already know they do. Same people who hate conservative Christians hate Orthodox Jews and Muslims, more often than not.)
There was literally nothing wrong with anything he posted.

While I was doing my job as an AFP field associate, I went to former Miami Dolphins coach Howard Schnellenbergers house. I had no idea he lived in a working class Boynton neighborhood. Nobody came to the door, but the spelling of the name, the age, and the name of his wife all matched according to a quick Wikipedia search.

I met Schnellenberger once before at Hooters several years back. He's a good man, and a hell of a coach.

Very good! Can't wait to see how Florida's districts look.

The Christian god is a large black woman, Wulfric.

Ooooooh and she sassy!
Damn right she is!
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: When will gay marriage become universally accepted? on: June 28, 2015, 10:09:56 pm
Sooner than you think.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Mississippi not taking gay marriage ruling well on: June 28, 2015, 09:33:40 pm
The Christian god is a large black woman, Wulfric. Lets get that straight.

More annoying than him.

Is it rude to call somebody out on a strawman argument? I called my uncle out on one during a heated debate over Bob Dylan's legacy. He seemed really hurt by it. How else am I supposed to respond to a person who says "I must be wrong, I was only alive at the time" when in fact they were born ten years after the song in question was written.
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Greece Referendum 2015 on: June 28, 2015, 08:52:18 pm
No (not an austerian hack)
No, you are not an austerian hack,  but you are the type of hack that destroyed Greece in the first place.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of these lyrics to "Dixie" on: June 28, 2015, 08:51:07 pm
Rather poorly written.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Rand Paul: Government Should Get Out of the Marriage Business Altogether on: June 28, 2015, 08:50:16 pm
In general I agree, but it'd be far more simple to just recognize gay marriage and allow individual churches to marry whoever they want.
