Is it possible that Marilyn Monroe's house keeper and friend, seeking revenge for the Kennedy spurning of Miss Monroe, could have hired Oswald to shoot John F Kennedy?

No, it really isn't.

Internet keyboard purists. I'd vote yes with zero reservations

I will feel no sadness or remorse when Joe Walsh dies cold, bitter and alone.
104  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Kirsten Gillibrand won't run for President in 2020 per The Hill on: May 03, 2017, 12:36:37 am
It's also an extremely biased presentation of the facts. The texts cast some doubt on Sulkowicz's story, probably enough for a criminal "reasonable doubt" standard but hardly anywhere close to enough to outright dismiss her as a faker, unlike some of the more clear-cut cases like the Duke lacrosse story.

Yeah but by that metric anything short of a verbal admission of lying isn't enough. I mean he (the accused) was even cleared by the "preponderance of evidence" standard at the University hearing.

It's like if a former Kulak was arrested by the NKVD in 1937 and put on trial for treason and counter-revolutionary activity against the Soviet State and found not guilty. I mean c'mon.

It's hyperbolic I know but you get my point.

Mattress Girl baggage would hurt her badly.

?

A woman named Emma Sulkowicz got some guy railroaded on fabricated allegations of sexual assault that were utterly confirmed to be fake later via post-facto text messages. She was a total nutjob and even self-made a porno where she "re-enacts" her "rape". She even said if you watch it for "the wrong reasons" you are raping her (not kidding).

The thing is every SJW ever came out in total support of her and refuse to admit they were wrong after the text messages came out, including the National Organization for Women and one Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.

Sherrod Brown. Not that I think he'll actually run though.
109  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Erdogan blocks Wikipedia on: April 29, 2017, 09:20:23 pm
It's beyond time to remove Turkey from NATO and full-on cancel any talks of them joining the EU (which has been a lie for years now anyways).

If he want's to be the Neo-Ottoman dictator, let him.

1.How did he fire so many shots in the amount of time. (I realize the first shot shouldn't be counted.)

He was a crack marine sharpshooter.

2.You believe the ridiculous 'single bullet theory'?

What are you going on about? The President was struck with two bullets this is widely established.

3.Why did Jack Ruby kill Oswald?

I honestly don't know but literally all the other real evidence concludes that Oswald acted alone, unless you're arguing that Oswald was knowingly "in on it" with the Mafia. This is really begging a "one single proof" fallacy. Also it is arguing that the Mafia would be stupid enough to actually kill the POTUS, thusly bringing the Federal Government down on their operations like a ton of bricks.

The only way to argue otherwise is to allege active collusion with the Mafia by elements of the US government, which does put firmly in tinfoil territory.

112  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is the first election night you remember? on: April 29, 2017, 08:34:37 pm
Yea, I was 15 back in 2004 and I remember that election very well. It was the first election I remember as well. I remember John Edwards speaking at around 1 am saying that they were behind in Ohio by around 150,000 votes. But that there was supposedly a few hundred thousand Democratic leaning absentee ballots not counted. That gave me a bit of hope as the night wore on. I went to bed at 2:30 am and knew things were bleak. I was able to skip school the next day and found out that Bush had carried Ohio and had won the election when I woke up the next day.

Yeah I was about that age too. But I had to go to school the next day and had to hear people say things "Yeah good now fags can't get married!" and "Dude but he kicked the sh**t out of Iraq!".

Ugh. It was bad.

No contest.
115  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYM: Conservative Radio Host Hugh Hewitt in Talks for MSNBC Show, Sources Say on: April 29, 2017, 07:22:17 pm
Name one thing Hugh Hewitt has ever said that you can remember. Go.

"Seriously but not literally."
116  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is the first election night you remember? on: April 27, 2017, 08:52:03 pm
2004 was the first election I actually cared about and knew the importance of.

I still remember going to bed that night after 1 AM so disappointed.

Nothing like the day of numbness after election night 2016 though.

I find it interesting that almost none of them actually live in GA06 either.

No you don't.
118  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What current democratic party plank is most "unpopular" with Asian voters? on: April 18, 2017, 03:06:14 pm
South Asians and Southeast Asians are definitely included in "Asian" in American political parlance.

Fine, I'll be more blunt. I mean "yellow" Asians.
119  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What current democratic party plank is most "unpopular" with Asian voters? on: April 18, 2017, 12:53:32 pm
Treating Chinese, Indians, Filipinos, and Arabs as one demographic is so laughable.

Colloquially speaking "Asian" in American political parlance means East Asian. Not Pacific Islander, Indian, or Middle Eastern.
120  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Tax Reform Effort Doomed to Failure on: April 18, 2017, 12:51:34 pm
This is a shame because I align with the Republican Party on tax reform. I think taxes should be flatter, simpler, and fairer.

Taxes should be vague, vague, and vaguer.
121  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Why do people (still) like Hillary Clinton? on: April 18, 2017, 12:24:41 pm
She's the most accomplished female politician in America, almost unquestionably. She's been fighting for civil rights and women's rights for decades. I think her time is done, but she's an admirable person in terms of what she's accomplished.
122  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: South Korean military reporting NK tried to launch a missile and it failed on: April 15, 2017, 09:21:45 pm
I think the idea that they were testing a submarine launched missile is the big takeaway. In theory if they fully developed SLBM technology they could retain a "Second Strike" capability in the case of a nuclear conflict.

The thing is they intended for the test to be a success, but even though it failed the idea is they are still working for SLBM capability, which could be an even bigger game-changer than ICBMs.
123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Cernovich threatens to drop "motherlode" if Bannon is dropped on: April 14, 2017, 07:36:52 pm
This guy helped invent Pizzagate and pushed other conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton last year.  As much as I'd like to believe otherwise, he's got nothing on anyone.
124  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Julian Assange--clarification on: April 14, 2017, 07:35:55 pm
Don't defend rapists.

Is there any evidence that he actually did anything? Also isn't one of the allegations some silliness about lying about using a condom?
125  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 'Concrete evidence of collusion between Trump team and Russia' handed over on: April 14, 2017, 07:25:24 pm
So did this turn out be nothing or what?
