51  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: WV-Gov: Manchin could run in '16 on: April 18, 2014, 08:15:43 pm
Ugh, I feel so bad for WV.  Trapped by a decrepit, corrupt, declining industry and their hack politicians.  About their only hope was for another Sen Byrd.  I guess their second best hope is a long population decline.
I dunno, Goodwin's cool, hopefully he runs in 2016.
Goodwin is still very young, but he was considered the most left wing member of the Senate during his tenure. I don't know what his future holds.

OT, but why do WV politicians always seem to have such hoity-toity names like Carte and Gaston and Jennings and Chapman? Especially considering the general population there seems more disposed to names like, say, Earl Ray.
Carte, Jennings, and Chapman all are/were common names just like Earl Ray. Take my own family from West Virginia for example. My great-grandfathers name was Tammy, my great-great grandfather's name was Hiram, and my uncle, grandpa, and great-grandpa from my other side of the family have or had Preston somewhere in their names. Likewise, my grandmother's mother was named Bertha and my grandfather's mother was named Velma.

If anyone thinks she's seriously considering a run, leave the Forum and politics now.

Since when is Roberts vulnerable? And why do they think running Sebelius will help the KS D's in any way?
Seriously, I don't think she will run.


Seriously, like I have said, I believe Roberts will win the primary. The tea party guy is so crazy, http://blogs.kansas.com/weblog/2014/03/the-doctors-hard-on-wolfs-x-ray-posting-jokes/
If he wins, (and that's likely), I'm sure the democrats would have an opening. But Sebelius won't probably run, but the actual democrat is relatively decent.

And PS Chairmansanchez: Missouri isn't a swing state, I didn't know you were a such dem hack Tongue.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2008#Close_states.2Fdistricts
Yes thank you SWE, a state who doesn't swing even if Obama wins the presi by 7 isn't a swing state.
It was close enough.
But this isn't the definition of a swing state.
Your splitting hairs. The point is, Missouri is winnable for Democrats, even without Todd Akin type candidates.

I want two or three daughters, since I grew up with two brothers. Part of it is insecurity on my part, as I am not a physical guy and feel that I won't have anything in common with a son.

Again, outside of the "big four" (State, Treasury, Defense, AG), your not going to see any sitting Senators or Governors. Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Rick Scott, Mitt Romney, or Scott Walker will not resign to serve in the cabinet.

What would they resign from?
Their lucrative careers as conservative talking heads.

I have a severely autistic brother who is in a group home, and I use the word "retard" all the time. Why? Because Iím not oversensitive and I am not actually calling my brother it.  an asshole.
You guys are being insensitive to those who do not have assholes. Only those without assholes can call somebody an asshole.

Wow I thought you were a total insensitive jerk, but then you compared the stigma and struggle of mental retardation to the problem of not having a butt. Now I know how much of a non-asshole you are.

Wow. Do you really think that I don't understand the troubles and stigma associated with mental retardation after watching my parents having to place my own autistic brother in a group home before the state Baker Acted him, or how my family was asked to leave McDonalds when he threw a fit, or how he wasn't able to talk until he was seven? Do you have any idea what that is like? I deal with things with humor. So does my mom. We call each other "retard" when somebody does something stupid.

Seriously, I know you've been here only a year, and I know you don't venture out of the 2016 boards to the Forum Community because youíre afraid of having "true leftists" big boys like Oakvale smash your hackish fantasies, but seriously, if you take one peak, you will see that I am pretty open about this.

This thread is about Susana Martinez, not my family. I happen to think that Martinez is still qualified for the Presidency because she uses a certain word. And believe me, Hillary has said far, far worse.

Finally, I'd recommend you learn a little about satire. You see, if somebody who has an autistic brother who is constantly on his mind and in his heart uses the term "retard", it is NOT going to be negative. It's a word. If I am an insensitive jerk for using a term that I don't actually apply to my own brother, or anyone for that matter in a serious manner, than surely you must be as well. Because if the same logic is used, than youíre degrading those without assholes (and of course thatís not even possible, but the point stands) in the same manner.

Iím so glad people like you stay in the 2016 board and donít spread their vile filth into the other corners of the forum, because people like you truly are the worst.


Just because you and your family are okay with calling each other retards, doesn't make it okay. It's a revolting word and it's use in society is to demean a person and ignore their humanity. Like the words 'faggot' and 'nigger' it's used to make a person feel different and not a part of society, if you think that's okay then there is something wrong with you.

Hasn't it been proven that your a 30 year old masquerading as a 17 year old?

I hope you guys realize that mental retardation and autism are two completely different things.
It's been used in a derogatory way towards autistic people in the same way Sikhs are the victims of anti Muslim bigotry. The context doesn't matter, it's a horrible thing to call somebody who is handicapped. Though I see nothing wrong with the use of the word in the context that Martinez did.
