51  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: 538 Model Megathread on: September 20, 2016, 11:41:54 pm
Why didn't 538 update the system to include the two new Florida polls that were released earlier today (Tue Sept 20th) ?
I can possibly understand that they are unsure to include the St Leo University poll, but why would they not include the Monmouth poll ?
(PS: Both polls are +5 Clinton.)

See, you are trying to rig the polls now! Sad!

Of course I do, but I also despise the right-wing political correctness that is being pushed on some by the same people who profess to hate safe-spaces and proper pronoun use.

Most people don't get science, but most of them are smart enough to not post on Twitter like they DO know science.
^^^^
This was the best tweet on the matter. I like Carswell but right now I'm really glad that Diane James is at the helm. Perhaps Al can explain to me why I'm probably wrong to be thinking that.

I'm rather excited by this. Aside from Anna Chapman honeypotting a cabinet member, I don't remember any compelling real life spy dramas. We need more John Stonehouses and what have you. I want to live in interesting times, this ISIS stuff is getting boring Tongue.

Trying to decide on a potential Senator to pick. Anyone have any good suggestions for a Republican? I'm leaning towards Javits right now.

Javits, Pres Bush, or Kuchel would be fun. Or, you could take a Dem placeholder and switch after the 1960 results, or even not take office until 1960. Up to you.
Sign me up for Prescott Bush, I totally forgot about him!

McMullin levels but with more ballot access and a slightly well known running-mate. All of Webb's supporters I imagine are more or less unenthusiastic Trump Democrats.

So long story short, I've been completely driven out of my home of the last year and had to move into a bigger, more expensive unit in my building as a last resort.
61  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Some sort of explosion has happened in Manhattan on: September 18, 2016, 10:39:31 pm
There is 0 evidence linking the events in New York and those in St. Cloud, and actually quite a bit pointing towards there being no link at all.
The only link I can imagine is that the MN suspect heard the news about the NJ explosion and triggered him to act. He probably, like the perpetrator in New York, probably had no contact whatsoever with any ISIS members at all. Like I said, both events are basically Orlando but without the carnage.

Obviously there is still a path for Democrats to win 50+ seats, but I remember when everyone (including Sanchez and Dereich) told me that Rubio was finished and that Murphy was going to win for sure. According to our resident FL experts (not you, Virginia Tongue), I had no clue about FL politics because I suggested that Rubio running for reelection would be the only way Republicans could hold this seat. Fun times.
He was going to lose to Murphy until the Democrats randomly pulled out of the race. Murphy has been trailing and Rubio somehow, someway, has managed to get around the fact that he literally politicized the Orlando attacks to reenter the race.

In one of the bombings, nobody was hurt. That is what he was probably referring to.

Wow, Atlas posters finding love with each other? Awesome!

On a side note, have there been any couples of forum posters before this?
Did they actually meet on here? Or did the relationship predate their membership?
65  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Some sort of explosion has happened in Manhattan on: September 17, 2016, 10:05:16 pm
Could be neo-nazis but could be jihadis...most likely confused children who think they are those things.
Neo-Nazis would have been my guess had they not targeted the Veterans event in New Jersey. While obviously all veterans are not Neo-Nazis, a number of Neo-Nazis are veterans (think Bo Gritz, Tim McVeigh etc).

CNN says that there might be other bombs in the area. Probably is true, but I suspect from the limited information that has been released is that they won't go off since the explosions have been pretty poorly executed. I guess that is good news?

Or... people can just wait? Just a thought.
We wait and we wait and it seems to me that we always reach the same conclusion eventually, so I don't see why this fetish with caution in considering the obvious has to do with anything. Of course, assuming the suspect is inspired by ISIS doesn't mean that it has to do with Islam. I feel that most of the attacks that involve ISIS inspired (IE, not directed from Raqqa like the Paris attacks) are more to do with the fact that some screwed up kid is using the Islamic State and their perverse interpretation of Islam to justify his heinous acts. Case in point, Omar Mateeb.

Because caution is always a good path when it comes to emotive issues.

Atlas would rather be the first to saying anything.
At the end of the day, whoever did this, be they anarchists, IS sympathizers, Neo-Nazis, rando religious cult, etc, will have their day at court. This event doesn't have any profound emotional impact aside from empathy for the victims and won't change my opposition to the relatively statist anti-terror measures that both Trump and Clinton espouse.

Sounds like a poorly executed ISIS inspired attack by the surface. Thank God the bomber/bombers weren't very good at their "craft."

Congrats Senate Majority Leader Turtleface.

Don't count'em till they hatch...
Do I smell a little fear?

That seems to be a common response from conservatives anytime they lead in anything anywhere.   

No,  if the Republicans keep the Senate Majority it won't be the end of the world, so I'm not "Fearing" anything.
No, just the end of pretty much all of Hillary's domestic agenda.

#OnlyConservatives #NotFlake
Quayle and Ingraham are major Tea Partiers. Quayle's more Rubio, Paul, and Cruz blended, whereas Ingraham is definitely conservative. Quayle seems like the type to get your vote.
That's who i voted for in the poll, but my write in names are preferred. I do like quayle though

"I do like quayle though"

The UKIP leadership election result was declared yesterday btw, and Diane James won with 46.1% of the vote. Turnout was quite poor.
Party membership is dropping rapidly, isn't it? A single issue party can't survive without it's single issue. I'd advice Diane James to begin rebranding UKIP as a libertarianish-right populist party.

The fact that people blame Nader for benefiting from Gore's horrendous campaign, boring personality, and total lack of accomplishment still confuses me.
74  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Ohio Dems vs Florida Dems, which is worse? on: September 16, 2016, 04:26:27 pm
So my favorite professor also happens to be a very instrumental figure in the FLDP, so I'll say the OHDP is worse. The Florida Democrats appear to be as incompetant as they are because they happen to be against one of the, if not the best period, state GOP branches in the country.
