Glad to see Zootopia won for Animated features.

And Moonlight for Best Picture. I didn't see the mistake live so my joy was unspoiled.

Longstanding crush told me I'm not what he's looking for in a relationship because we're both too neurotic for each other Sad.

I'm sorry. Really sucks when that happens.

Thanks man.

Oh, man, I'd honestly forgotten about that.

Sorry if that was weirding y'all out.

Buttigieg is pronounced "Booty-judge"? Huh That's so weird.

Yeah, there's not even a vowel after the second G.

I'm for Keith for this reason:

Quote from: Me in my TL
Chairman Keith Ellison (D-Minnesota) won the Chairmanship race in a brutally close contest.


Well, you certainly got one thing right.

Wtf is up with all the hate for Perez? DNC Chair isn't a policy figure. And even if it was, he's just as progressive as Ellison.

Then why is he running? This is just a way for the Clinton wing to keep any possible control out of the hands of the Bernie wing.

I really love all the damn bern bros bitching in the thread that they aren't going to vote Dem if they don't get what they want.  You want to know who is out of touch and who is being a brat, look in the mirror.

Yeah, this thread is getting stupid.

Dismiss "Bernie bros" at your own peril Democrats. It appears that you've learned nothing from 2016.
Man you really are acting like a child. Go out like we are and fight the real enemy instead of being some bitter petty asshole all the time. It does nothing for you but bring you pain and dissatisfaction. 

Way to make stupid assumptions about my character.

After Bernie lost, I went out volunteered a ton of my time to help campaign for Hillary Clinton during the general. I'm active within my local Democratic Party, and campaign for local Democrats in my area. I'm doing my part.

It's you and the rest of the DNC who needs to wake up and take a look in the mirror, because what you've been doing clearly hasn't been working. Democratic U.S. Senate seats have fallen from 55 to 46. Our share of the House has plummeted from 256 seats to 194. Republicans still control both chambers. We've lost 958 state legislative seats. Democratic governerships have slipped from 28 to 16. We're losing, and it's not because of "Bernie bros."

JFC.


Yet instead of trying to fix these things you want to take your ball and go sit in the damn corner.

We are trying to fix them. That's what Ellison's candidacy is about!
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Horserace between Keith Ellison and Tom Perez on: February 23, 2017, 04:03:47 pm
While I agree it's disappointing that it looks like Ellison or Buttigieg won't win, I think people are overrating the actual power the DNC head has.

Why now, does everyone care about a position that has meant very little in the past? Why place more meaning into this then there needs to be? Everyone is just going to end up being disappointed when the essences of the party establishment chooses the establishment candidate. If the Sanders wing is the future, they will take over the party in due time anyway.
Because DNC corruption became a general election campaign issue, thanks to Trump and Russian hackers

But why is Perez a symbol of DNC corruption? Its not like he and Ellison differ on anything meaningful. Its not like Perez has a history of corruption. The Bernie-wing has placed all its eggs in Ellison and I have no idea why. 

If they don't differ on anything meaningful why did he challenge Ellison?
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Horserace between Keith Ellison and Tom Perez on: February 23, 2017, 02:18:13 pm
What even is the argument for Perez? What is he saying is so wrong with Ellison that he had to jump in?
12  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Official Trump 1.0 Approval Ratings Thread on: February 23, 2017, 07:23:06 am
The poll says 67 net percent, not 67 percent total.

Here's hoping Cuomo and Booker split the Clinton vote.

Either water or fire. Water's more versatile, but I don't like the cold.

Rochester, Buffalo, Santa Rosa (sneakers vs. tennis shoes was one of the biggest factors, I believe). Sounds about right.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: POLITICO/Morning Consult: Trump+6 against Warren on: February 15, 2017, 03:30:31 pm
Warren is unelectable, she is an elitist Massachusetts liberal. Select a progressive who can connect with ordinary voters.

I don't know many elitists who grew up poor in Oklahoma.

Disgusting. They want to have it both ways with the left.
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Perez campaign claims to have 180 of 224 votes to win on: February 15, 2017, 12:08:10 am
I still have yet to see an explanation for why Perez jumped in in the first place. What did he see that was wrong with Ellison? If they're so similar, why should Ellison's supporters have to bend the knee?
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Next DNC Chair: Keith Ellison, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Perez big names in race on: February 11, 2017, 10:16:17 pm
Buttigieg would also be the second gay Chair of a major party. The mafia is working overtime to get him elected. Let's go kick Ellison's and Perez's butt[igieg]s!

And the first one to be open about it during his chairmanship.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Gallup: 55% disapprove of Muslim ban, Plurality says Trump is "moving too fast" on: February 03, 2017, 03:54:13 pm
     People calling it a "Muslim ban" when it most certainly is not probably does not help public perception. It wasn't a particularly well-conceived order, but criticizing it should not require misrepresentation.

People like the people who wrote it?
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: BREAKING: Federal Court Issues National Stay of Trump's Refugee Ban on: January 29, 2017, 08:53:33 pm
Roughly 100.000-150.000 people living in Austria are currently unable to travel to the US because they are either citizens of Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Sudan or Somalia - or Austrian citizens who also hold citizenship/passports of these countries.
And what business or connection do they possibly have here? I have yet to hear a reason as to why the right to immigrate here is apparent universal.

Immigrate? The ban also applies to those who simply want to travel to the United States.

That includes visiting family, doing business, going on vacation, etc.
Immigrate, seeking asylum, travel, etc, all the same. No one has aright to enter any country unless they are citizens (which many affected by this are-I've made it clear that this order was poorly thought out).

Are you endorsing sakoku?

Thank goodness the economic anxiety of good-natured white people in the Rust Belt can now be assuaged. <3
Yeah, now I don't risk losing my job to Abana when she grows up.

I didn't know you hated the free market so much.

24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Who would be in a Democratic "shadow" government? on: January 19, 2017, 03:57:55 pm
I saw some articles going around that Clinton had most of her potential Cabinet slots filled. Podesta for State, Sheryl Sandberg for Treasury, Michele Flournoy for Defense, etc.

If Trump's approval ratings are low enough to make him drop out of the race Booker will win in a walk.
