So you think that religion has no place in public life and that religion is absolutely essential to public life?

Ireland:Irish Social Democratic Labor

No such party.
Must be thinking of the Northern Irish party.

Cuba. China just seems dirty.

Probably doesn't mean anything as the EU was pro-two state solution anyway, but still good news.

I don't see why people are even opposed to Palestine being a country. I mean, it was a soverign state before WWII.

I struggle to find a good reason against this.

Ha! There are no famous Canadian cricketers. :p A coup nonetheless, considering I'm not aware of any athletes who have ever run for the NDP.
The most famous is Australian Tongue

This was a pretty boring year for records IMO. A lot of those albums that were listed were pretty good but certainly don't represent the best work produced most of those artists.
Music quality has really dropped over the last 5 or so years.

The fact that most of them got majorities of Republican voters concerns me. Torture is never a good thing.

I'd try to go back six years in time, and force Reid to abolish the filibuster. Then we'd have real reform and may well have been better placed in Congress anyway.

Woke up to the awful news of the deaths, this is just awful! Cry I'll be buying some Lindt chocolate today in their memory. And may Man Monis have EVERYTHING at the book thrown at him.
I'm pretty sure Monis is dead.

Yes. My family has lived in the same state for over 100 years.

What the hell, they've already had it twice! Half of the games in the United States would basically be home games for them anyway.

And then there's the whole thing about it being extremely dangerous but we won't let minor inconveniences get in the way!

I actually agree with Snowstalker on this: I can totally see Canada getting it especially if the women's World Cup goes off without a hitch.

I'm going to swim against the North American tide, and express a personal support for a hypothetical Greek candidacy.
I was just about to put that there as soon as I saw it. Like, WTF?

No (Australian)

Did French at school but I hardly remember most of it now lol.

To Alfred, what's the appeal?

Anyway, I have nothing against them, even if I personally think the subculture is pretty weird.

Atheist/Agnostic. Was baptised but I've never believed in God.
20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Republican and Democratic US Senate Streaks on: December 14, 2014, 12:13:54 am
What are the longest streaks by Senate seat? Landrieu's has been Democratic since reconstruction.

Vermont's class 1 was Republican from 1856-2001, so that's probably it for republicans. I'm sure you can find similar things with Maine.

For democrats, its seems to be that Georgia's class 2 takes the cake, as it was democratic from 1852-2002. For most states in the south, there's a common pattern. Democratic at first, some Republicans during reconstruction, and then Democratic pretty all the way until post-Civil Rights. Georgia's class 2 is the only one I've seen where it didn't elect at least one Republican during reconstruction. 

Do you know the context there? How did they manage to elect Democrats during Reconstruction?

I don't know. It was at least 40% black at the time so I can't imagine a Republican not getting elected.
That was pre-17th Amendment, so there was still a good chance that the state legislature was Democrat controlled.
21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If the GOP had 'smoked-filled room' who would they pick? on: December 13, 2014, 05:36:38 pm
Yeah Bush or Romney most likely.
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Chelsea Manning vs Julian Assange vs Edward Snowden on: December 13, 2014, 04:51:25 pm
Snowden is the best. He didn't harm anyone. Manning might've endangered people's lives and Assange is both a rapist and egotistical lunatic.
Again, is there any actual evidence of this?
He's been charged with having sex while damaging a condom/not using a condom without consent. So yes.
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of George Reid on: December 13, 2014, 03:35:30 am
Another day left.
24  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Chelsea Manning vs Julian Assange vs Edward Snowden on: December 13, 2014, 03:32:57 am
Manning is obviously the best, and even from the perspective that this sort of information shouldn't be made public she's still probably the least bad. Assange is the literal Worst from almost any imaginable perspective.

I'll never for the life of me understand why oakvale feels the way he does about this.
oakvale doesn't have a real ideology beyond going against what he feels is the popular consensus.
