CrabCake contuning to confirm himself as the best.
2  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How would you describe Hillary Clinton's ideology? on: Today at 11:27:30 pm
In an American context center-left. Probably center in the rest of the world. But....

I believe we had this question before and I'm pretty sure that we settled on Hillary Clinton's ideology being Hillary Clinton.

Sook.

Obvious FF, though he probably needs time off Atlas though...he's been odd for a while.

OC (jao)
pbrower2a (unreadable tripe)
backtored (hack IIRC)
Somewhere in time (if it's who I think it is, just useless and plain weird. Bit of a dubious one though, mostly doing it because everyone else hates him and he isn't a good enough poster to take him off)
Senator JCL and the geologist (dumb)
krazen1211 (mean-spirited hack)
BigSkyBob (just horrid)
heatmaster (dumb hack/troll)
Oldiesfreak1854 (dumb)
Hifly (one-note homophobe, unconstructive troll)
CountryClassSF (bad troll)
bobloblaw (racist, hackish, trolly, etc.)

Good work. Now give us a World Cup damnit.
7  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Which Senators would you really like to see lose next year? on: Today at 02:01:22 am
Johnson, McCain, Ayotte, Kirk and Rubio. Portman and Toomey are meh (I find Kirk's faux-moderation more grating), and I can't see Kentucky doing any better than Paul, who at least is a much needed voice on foreign policy/civil liberty matters.
8  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Could a more charasmatic and better politician with Bernie Sanders' views win? on: May 25, 2015, 04:51:11 pm
A better politican than Sanders may not call himself a socialist. Food for thought.
9  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Was FDR a good President? on: May 24, 2015, 07:29:02 am
Yes.

The intermission of the Japanese certainly isn't a good look, but without him America would've gone down a very very ugly path. Up there with the best, definitely.
10  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Was Calvin Coolidge a good President? on: May 24, 2015, 07:23:05 am
No (not a libertarian circlejerker)

What exactly was your issue with him?
Well I generally disagree with laissez-faire style of economic policies, and he contributed significantly to the depression. And he never really achieved anything of note from memory.

Personality wise he seems OK, and anti-lynching legislation is always a good thing, but otherwise I'm not really a big fan. Still there were a fair bit worse around his time.
11  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Pro-choice Hawk or Pro-life Dove? on: May 24, 2015, 07:19:03 am
Assuming they're of identical ideologies? Probably lean towards the latter. Though it depends on their level of support of abortion/their style of foreign policy.

Sweden win. Deserved, they were good.

Welcome to the Eurovision Political Contest, Australia!
I know how Eurovision works.

But they're getting big votes from everywhere.

16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Snoop Dogg endorses Hillary Clinton on: May 21, 2015, 09:57:46 pm
Would be more relevant if it was Snoop Lion endorsing Hillary Clinton.

How is it that the best posters usually get relatively high HP ratings compared to the dulls?
20% is high now? I think the real dulls get a higher HP rating than that. And it's natural that some great posters can be polarising whereas no-one really hates the "dulls".

I obviously voted FF.

Vaporizing two cities full of non-combatants with atomic weapons in spite of the fact that the Japanese were willing to surrender

Also, I don't think this is accurate.
Yes, everything I've read suggests that the Japanese wanted to fight to the death. Atomic bombs were dropped because there were few alternatives......it's certainly unfortunate though.

I'd probably go for something like the re-segregation of the White House. Because most of these 'hits' while actions of Democrats....weren't necessarily the actions of the establishment.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Was Lyndon Johnson a good President? on: May 21, 2015, 03:06:55 am
Domestic policy mostly decent, foreign policy largely a disaster. Unfortunately this makes him better than any President since then, with the possible exception of Obama.

21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Is Atlas a right wing forum? on: May 21, 2015, 02:45:39 am
It does have libertarian leans, and CrabCake is correct the left here is extremely broad, but obviously not.
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Best Senators of the Past 50 Years: Alaska on: May 21, 2015, 02:36:37 am
I don't remember what Gravel was like as a Senator, but you've gotta love him.

24  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Ed FitzGerald for VP? on: May 20, 2015, 01:56:13 am
Nonono, for maximum success, go for a Wendy Davis/Ed FitzGerald ticket. That'll be sure to give a 50 state sweep!
Wendy Davis/Mark Udall. That way America would go extinct in 100 years.

I don't get it.
