Of course not. This is a simply a shameless ploy by commercial establishments to evade taxes by taking a tax credit meant to help cultural establishments. Anyone with the slightest clue about the trouble cultural institutions go through just to stay afloat would see this for what it is. Denigrating member- and donor-supported establishments by equating them with venues where performers are paid hand over fist by fans of popular music to perform is ridiculous enough to be offensive.

Before you'll know it movie theaters will be asking for the same treatment as museums since they both "show pictures". Roll Eyes

We need Halakha as much as we need Sharia, which is to say we don't need it at all.

Anyhoo, the man is sick and needs help. It's about time that Abedin washed her hands of him.

Jonny King also thought Obama should cancel his vacation to visit Louisiana during the worst of the flooding. 79% of Americans disagree with him.

There was a poll on this?

They never supported Bernie in the first place. They are a disgrace to the community. Of course this comment is literally coming from a black person.

I'd like to think that in Trumpist America, I'd be the person who hid a Hispanic/Muslim family in my attic and was later portrayed favorably in an autobiography one of the family members wrote.

If you weren't the one in the attic to begin with, that is. Wink

Trump. Get rid of him and you at least have Pence. Get rid of Cersei, on the other hand....

Look, I don't try to convert people to Catholicism on this forum or convince them that their religion is wrong. I don't try to persuade people to become Republicans. I respect the views of liberals here, and usually they respect mine. Can we not expect the same of you Alcon, and Ebowed? I do not proselytize, why do you? I eat meat, you do not. Why can't you respect my choice that the way the rest of us respect your choice?

12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Why Trump could legitamately do well with African-American voters. on: August 26, 2016, 07:11:50 am
The fact of the matter is, no one is going to care about some 'Politico article."
What people remember is that trump made the biggest "thing" about it, since the invention of sliced bread.
And besides, just because someone else started the rumor, doesn't excuse trump for believing in something so stupid (Obama birtherism), and then shouting like a crazy idiot in the streets that the sky is falling !
Do you understand ?  ..... trump looked like a total clown when he did this.
It does matter when the person who sowed the racist seeds of doubt in the first place is the person he is literally running against. It matters that it's out of Politico because like Hillary's emails, it's not some right-wing smear out of Drudge or Breitbart, it's out of the liberal media. Trump isn't going to willingly go there, as he has nothing to gain, but Clinton damn well knows that if she goes there, he will hit her back. Clinton's hit him on just about everything already, and if she thought going there would be a net benefit for her, she would have.

Aren't you like the anti-Oldiesfreak? You like the Republican Party with all the non-racist parts taken out, and are turned off by rhetoric about being the "party of Lincoln"?

I'm confused. What is this thread for? This entire forum is about politics. Why on earth would we need a "mega thread about Clinton and Trump" when that's all the 2016 US Presidential Election sub-forum is about?

Johnson seems set to hit 5% and get you guys lots of money by matching funds et al. I wouldn't complain if I were you.

Sad to see Stein clutching on to Johnson's coattails like the veritable loser she is, despite not even being on the ballot!
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Johnson: Romney, Leavitt "guaranteed" places in my administration on: August 21, 2016, 10:40:50 am
Quote
On Friday, former Gov. Gary Johnson offered a guarantee.

“If Mitt Romney wants to be a part of the administration, that would be a guarantee.”

The comments came at Friday’s joint Deseret News-KSL editorial board meeting with Johnson and Bill Weld.

I asked Johnson what role, if any, Romney might play in a Johnson-Weld administration. Although the Libertarian nominee seemed to doubt whether Romney would really be interested, he said the former Republican presidential nominee would be free to, in essence, choose his own adventure.

“I think [the position] would be for Mitt Romney to decide … and I say that with reverence to his skills as a business person and having run the Olympics.”

Johnson, for his part, went on to praise yet another political juggernaut in Utah: “I always thought that Gov. Mike Leavitt would be an ideal secretary of state.”

Weld concurred, calling him “my favorite,” and saying “I nominated him for president.” Johnson then exclaimed, “I did too, I did too!”

“I said to Mike Leavitt in New York,” Johnson continued, “Mike, if you ever decided to run for president, you’re my guy.”

I feel like the electorate would have woken up to the whole "socialist" thing and freaked out accordingly at some point.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How much would Rubio/Kasich/Walker be leading Hillary by? on: August 21, 2016, 10:33:17 am
I don't think Rubio would be ahead. He strikes me as a lightweight who'd be in over his head.

But "he wouldn't make it through a primary" is no reason a candidate couldn't win in the GE. Indeed, as we all know, electability in the GOP primary is a poor predictor of future success. Don't be hacks, people.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: So What Happens to The McLaughlin Group? on: August 21, 2016, 12:16:55 am
There's more than enough inane "who won the week"-style punditry on national news programs without it, so my hope that it will be cancelled.

Or they could ask Trevor Noah to host it, I guess.

Hey, I like Trevor Noah!
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump Donates 18 Wheeler Full of Supplies to Victims in Louisiana on: August 20, 2016, 04:34:45 pm
About 5% of the stuff this guy does makes me think he's got the common touch in a way that leads to landslides and realignments. Then there's the other 95%.

Now I'm getting legitimately scared here folks. Also, there's nothing wrong with giving toys to kids.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: GE Wk 3: Who won the week? on: August 20, 2016, 04:27:53 pm
Trump would have won it by virtue of low expectations had he not ended it by replacing his campaign manager yet again.
23  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How much would Rubio/Kasich/Walker be leading Hillary by? on: August 20, 2016, 04:23:00 pm
Kasich +4
Rubio  -2
Walker -4

Something like this.

Winfield, you're not supporting Trump, are you?
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: FBI Clinton notes leaks megathread - Powell denies gave Clinton server idea on: August 19, 2016, 07:18:46 pm
This is very silly of the Congressional Republicans.

At the same time, the "she's old and can't be expected to know the details of emails!" is perhaps the worst excuse ever conceived.
