It's official:


Certainly up there!

Five Stars. Possibly the best state in the Union.

As I said the other day, I *might* have a job at AFP this summer. I just got a message from our field director saying he wants to meet with me tomorrow. Hopefully this is about a potential job opening for me.

Option 3. I wouldn't want to take my whole family on one, but going with a small group of friends would be kinda cool.

He cancelled an event in Jupiter that I was planning on attending Thursday night. I'm so glad that he took time off the campaign trail to fight for what is right!

I have a severely autistic brother who will never have any form of self sufficiency or independence of any kind. He lives in a group home and is doing quite well, but he will never be able to live on his own and my brother and I will have to look after him for the rest of our lives once our parents are gone (which isn't a burden and something that I am perfectly fine with undertaking, for whatever its worth).  He is not a "retard" and in fifth grade I once punched a kid who referred to my youngest brother as such. But the "retard" in a context outside of insults isn't a horrible word. I use the term "retard" and "retarded", and I would never in a million years demean the handicapped after watching my youngest brother struggle day in and day out to express even the simplest statement or request.

That being said, this campaign is retarded.

This thread is going to be fun to look back on if she wins.
Especially when all the poll options prove to be true!

The Tea Leaves Thread is about all there is to read. The rest is a he said/she said tug of war between people who are convinced of a Hillary landslide and people convinced that Hillary will be defeated in a landslide.

Kind of an overused Twain quote to be honest.
63  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you a member of a labor union? on: May 20, 2015, 12:05:48 pm
No, but I wouldn't be opposed to joining one as long as they aren't insanely overzealous in their cause.

This literally won't ever happen so why bother?

Hypotheticals are fun
Not trite and overused hypotheticals.
65  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: OH-Sen: Cincinnati Councilman P.G. Sittenfeld likely running on: May 19, 2015, 05:20:39 pm
Portman has a Some Dude running to his right:

Don Elijah Eckhart, a social conservative from central Ohio, plans to challenge Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, in next year’s Senate Republican primary.

Eckhart ran as an independent in the 2008 congressional campaign between Democrat Mary Jo Kilroy of Columbus and Republican Steve Stivers of Upper Arlington. Eckhart and Libertarian Mark Noble won enough conservative votes to enable Kilroy to win. In a 2010 re-match, Stivers defeated Kilroy.
Interestingly enough, I was a member of another forum that was centered around SuperPower II (since closed down) and one of the moderators roommates from college was a libertarian candidate for Congress. I can't remember if he ran against Kilroy or Jeanne Schmidt though. It very well might be the Libertarian in question in that article.

Radical Liberal. Breckenridge is simply more than I can stomach.

You also can't enjoy your Big Macs if you're in a coffin.

Christie wouldn't even fit into a coffin. Sad
He's dead enough politically.

Cotton really sticks out to me in this category.
71  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Settle ties 2: Garfield vs. Coolidge on: May 19, 2015, 02:13:32 pm
Coolidge, but both were good.  Coolidge is a criminally underrated President, and it's laughable to literally blame the whole Great Depression on him, as many do.
It's would be funny if it weren't so painfully annoying. Coolidge was an incredible President.
72  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted for TARP (by party)? on: May 19, 2015, 02:12:55 pm
Aye (don't let "principles" destroy the global economy)
If you don't have principles, what is the point of anything? The global economy relies on a set of basic principles that were routinely violated leading up to the recession. The banks gave loans to everybody and their brother, and then folded on everyone else. I'm not advocating for their lynching like some in this thread, but something had to be done.
73  Forum Community / Election and History Games / Re: Does anyone play Europa Universalis? on: May 19, 2015, 02:08:16 pm
I've been playing a great game as Byzantium over the last few months. Finnally managed to conquer Turkey, though my entire nation is 40% controlled by Islamic rebel zealots. I'll wipe them out next time I play, I guess.

EU3 or 4? Did you have to cheat or use gamey tactics to beat the Ottomans?
Gamey tactics are life.
EUIII; I picked the Ottomans off province by province and used revolts to my favor, but I didn't cheat in any particular way. I lost several provinces to the rebels, who defected to a few neighboring states. I'm still trying to clean the mess up. I obviously bit off more than I could chew.
74  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you have voted for TARP (by party)? on: May 19, 2015, 02:06:49 pm
No (R). If we all are going to eat s[INKS]t in another great depression, the banksters should be eating it with us.

So your logic is "we should have let the banking system collapse and caused a second Depression so that the bankers would suffer"?
If we're going to suffer either way (which the middle class certainly did), then yes, we might as well all go down together.

Do you understand how bonkers this is?

Let me use an analogy. Someone burns your house down, so you suffer. A better alternative by your logic is that you instead set off an atomic bomb and end all life on earth because it's only fair that he suffer too.
The analogy is false. Setting off an atomic bomb would destroy the property of others, after all. Now, if the arsonist burnt down every other home in the area, then sure, blow the whole thing apart and rebuild from the ground up.

It's not like TARP helped the working class out, on the whole. Millions lost their jobs and their homes. It wasn't a depression, but it wasn't your average recession either, and the affects of it will linger for a generation.
75  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Earned $320k For 20 min speech on: May 19, 2015, 02:00:43 pm
This isn't a real scandal, and Hillary has her fair share of scandals. The event she spoke at is free to pay her whatever they want, and Hillary is free to accept that money. It's called free enterprise.
