I think they should go back to their 1941 borders, minus the Russian parts/Northern France/Low Countries (moderate hero).

If I cared what Howard Stern thought I would probably listen to his show.
You're probably some creepy Opie and Anthony fan. Figures.

If he loses, at least he actually lost and didn't just essentially give his seat away.
No? If he loses he's damaged goods forever. If he stayed out and Murphy won, he could blame Trump and the GOP Senate nominee and still run again.

No. If you want to take a swing, go ahead, I'm sure you'll do fine in a federal penitentiary.
No, not a loser who resorts to violence in instances like this.

Aww. While I do want to stand up against the 21st century Hitler, I don't think I have the huevos to do it. I will let someone else do it for me and support that person 100%. That's how my forefathers did it!
21st century Hitler. That's so ridiculously stupid that it's borderline anti-semitic.

Aww! I'm the one who is anti-semitic, not the the one who was an actual white supremacist!
Wait, wait, wait, you used to be known as Memphis right? I remember you! You were the top Atlas MRA before misogamy was cool. That's why the name rang a bell.

I'm surprised someone didn't pop it. But then again, the violent terrorist protester thugs probably would have acted out on their violent urges and given that poor patriot the Reginald Denny treatment.

White supermacist yay! Someone should have popped it so that real Americans could have shot that individual!
Seek help.

Lean FF. The problem of communist infiltration into the American government and widespread spying was a very real one during WW2 and the immediate post-war period, and it needed attention brought to it; that said, the methods McCarthy used were unhelpful and frequently reprehensible. He could've been a great figure, and he ended up vilified purely because of his own mistakes and faults.
...no, no, it really wasn't.

Although if you ask the British people whether capital punishment should be legal or not, it's very close: 48% would support it. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-32061822

That is much higher than I would have thought.

If Britons new how messy the death penalty is in it's application (gasping for breath, taking an hour to die, etc.) hopefully a lot fewer people would support it.
I'm anti-death penalty on philosophical grounds, but that really is an overstatement. Very few executions are botched, and many of the recent ones are due to the fact that drug companies are denying certain chemicals, thus forcing states to experiment.

On the subject, here is a tidbit from Wikipedia.

Quote
In late 1993, Stern urged his listeners to elect Christine Todd Whitman as Governor of New Jersey after Stern promised to support the first candidate to phone in his radio show. In March 1995, following her election success, Whitman named a highway rest stop after Stern in exchange for his endorsement on Interstate 295, south of Trenton, New Jersey. A $1,000 plaque was installed at the stop, which was stolen days later and mailed to Stern. The rest area closed in 2003 as part of budget cuts by Governor Jim McGreevey.

Romney won Montana 55-41. Just because Obama came within two points of winning in 2008 in the midst of an economic meltdown and an unpopular (and GOP backed) war in Iraq doesn't make it a competitive state persay.
65  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Your preferred presidential candidate in 2012 and 2016 on: June 19, 2016, 07:12:30 pm
Other/Trump (provisionally so).

I backed Johnson after Paul dropped out, and I might end up backing him again if Trump goes off the deep end and picks Palin or someone for VP.

How many times has a douchebag Facebook keyboard warrior like Kenneth Lewis killed 49 people?

How many times has a viciously racist douchebag violated people's rights, even unconsciously?

If I were his boss, he'd be fired.
Certainly, he should be canned immediately. He's clearly unfit for such a position. I just find the knee-jerk reaction to do whatever possible to avoid the fact that the Orlando shooter was an Islamic radical, whether he chose to be so to avoid his own internal battles, or because he genuinely believed in the cause.

Re-read his posts. They are simply slammimg the browns of all types rather than fighting a war on terror. his "3rd world mmiscreant" term seemed to be more generic "damn beaner illegals" than "wake up Merica!!"

I think you're the one reading the most into this, Sanchez.
I don't quite get what you are stating here. I did read his posts. They were bad. But a douchebag with a platform on Facebook that appeals to rednecks isn't a bigger problem than Islamic terrorism, because Kenneth Lewis and his ilk aren't going out killing LGBT people in mass numbers.

So now we're going to have a 6-3 D court? Awesome.

How's that awesome? That would be a disaster. The US would never recover from that calamity.

Republicans who whine about "activist judges" and worship Antonin Scalia and the court he served on are hypocrites.
Scalia wasn't an activist judge. Interpreting the law based out of the Constitution and not based on modern conditions isn't activism, it's simply doing the job.

69  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL-Sen: Is Rubio actually reconsidering post-Orlando shooting? on: June 19, 2016, 06:17:58 pm
A sizable portion of Republican voters will absolutely hate him

No. And even if some do, most of them will vote for him anyway, and not Murphy (lol).
Allow me to know better here; Rubio is sitting at 51-37 approvals according to PPP and that is among Republicans. Nearly 40% of the Florida GOP voter base is against Rubio. A majority of them will hold their nose for Rubio, but it simply won't be enough. They aren't going to stay home either, since a sizable number of them overlap with Trump supporters and thus are going to vote. Lastly, Patrick Murphy is a gifted retail politician with a strong amount of crossover appeal and charisma. You underestimate him against Marco Rubio.

Clarence Thomas isn't going anywhere unless he has a viagra heart attack/gets Rockefellered like Scalia.
71  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL-Sen: Is Rubio actually reconsidering post-Orlando shooting? on: June 19, 2016, 04:55:37 pm
It will be close but I would bet on a 51-48 Murphy win. Rubio is not the same guy as a couple years back, he is severely damaged goods at this point and facing a well-funded opponent.
A sizable portion of Republican voters will absolutely hate him, and Murphy has shown in his pretty Republican leaning district that he can attract a substantial amount of independents and Republicans.
72  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: A Fred Karger/Jon Huntsman ticket 2012 ticket? on: June 19, 2016, 04:53:39 pm
The point of Fred Karger being the nominee even in a hypothetical is moot unless you have him in some form of higher federal office first. Plus he'd have to pick a more traditionally conservative running-mate, because a Karger/Huntsman ticket would send the evangelicals into a fury. I'd recommend someone like Niki Haley.

Also Obama did win WV, but not by a margin to be proud of. I still see your point though.
73  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: FL-PPP: Rubio in a very close race with Murphy and Grayson in Democratic poll on: June 18, 2016, 07:53:31 pm
I'd rather vote for SOL INVICTUS than Rubio for the Senate again.
I will vote for the blood drinking satanist over Rubio. I might even vote for Murphy if it helps stop Marco.
74  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who wins? on: June 18, 2016, 06:02:19 pm
Obviously Clinton (R) as of today, though I don't believe the narrative that Trump is the next Goldwater/McGovern/Mondale/Dukakis/Dole. He'll lose, but I suspect he'll do better than McCain and worse than Romney.
