101  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Is the media too shocked about Trump win to notice realigning election? on: November 15, 2016, 06:58:19 pm
It depends on how you define realigning election.  In the strict sense of the term, there has not been one since 1932 and likely never will be one again (polling of public opinion almost prevents one from happening).

1980?

Things like this are part of the reason we lost the election.
103  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will conservatives STFU about media bias now? on: November 13, 2016, 04:29:40 pm
Breitbart is commentary. You know what you are getting with it. It isn't "actual news" and everyone knows that. Even the readers.

You would be surprised. Many, many people I know on the right take sites like Breitbart, World Net Daily, and FreeRepublic at face value as hard news. Never mind Talk Radio and Fox News prime-time (Hannity ect.).

The right-wing media bubble is just as real. You'd be kidding yourself to believe otherwise.
104  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Podesta accuses Comey for losing them the election. Who is to blame? on: November 12, 2016, 07:32:02 pm
The bulk of the blame should lie with Podesta and Hillary herself. However, Comey's letter did real damage, and his behavior was unprofessional and wrong. The election was close enough that it probably made the difference. A 2% swing to Clinton(roughly the amount lost in the polls after the Comey letter) would have given Clinton 307 EVs and a big popular vote win.
105  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Post your final 2016 Presidential Election prediction maps here on: November 08, 2016, 12:35:59 pm
My final prediction:

106  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would you react to this map? on: November 07, 2016, 10:36:07 pm
Hope (in vain) that Paul Ryan doesn't act like a sissy and use "the will of the American people" as an excuse for making Clinton President.

The irony is that you know for a fact that your position would be the opposite if the roles were reversed. So spare us your faux adherence to the constitution when you know full well you would say a Democratic House should make Trump President because of "THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE!11!!!"
107  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump is going to win this election in a blowout. Hillary has no chance. on: November 06, 2016, 06:06:58 pm
It's a parody IIRC.
108  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Spy vs Spy: US Gov. Hackers ready to "hit back" if election is disrupted on: November 05, 2016, 06:59:02 pm
If this were true, why would they announce it?

Deterrence.

He's not wrong about Kristol.
100% correct. 
111  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Struggling Arch conservative small business owners on: October 29, 2016, 04:06:14 pm
It is becoming increasingly obvious that the Republican Party isn't the party of Industry and Innovation, but the party of Protectionism and Trusts. Basically what the Democratic Party basically was. And now the Democrats are the new Republicans- those who believe infrastructure (railroads, national banks ...now Healthcare reform and public transportation), science(industrialization (now biotechnology, AI, and digital media)), reduced barriers of entry and Civil Rights (Free Trade and Abolitionism (now free trade, increased public education and civil rights ) will provide Americans the path to growth.
112  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Do you prefer 'Czech Republic' or 'Czechia'? on: October 27, 2016, 06:51:07 pm
Bohemia and Moravia is the proper name of course.

115  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would you support this proposal to deal with Julian Assange? on: October 22, 2016, 10:39:15 pm
Wait until after the election first. Matter of fact wait until the Summer of 2017 or something to put distance between the two.

Madeline, I like you more with each post you make. I hope you can forgive my past awful transgressions against you based on nonsense. I'm at a much better place in life now and have really gotten myself back to who I really am. 'Liberal eugenics' nonsense is in in the past and I have re-embraced the cynical but still kinda bleeding-heart Social-Democrat I always was at heart.

117  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump calls for congressional term limits on: October 18, 2016, 09:34:07 pm
Why does that argument apply to Congress but not the Presidency? The latter is significantly more complex and difficult of a job, but after 2 full terms, the 22nd Amendment requires the President to step down and be replaced by someone who has never done the job.

Because it doesn't, "really". The 22nd was only passed because FDR got four terms and people were afraid of a popular leader being basically "President for Life" in the future.
118  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: The Battle for Mosul Will Be Televised on: October 18, 2016, 09:14:16 pm
Sweet.

Also r/combatfootage is a great place to see this all unfold.
119  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: When feminists and liberal men disagree on: October 15, 2016, 06:38:21 pm
Third wave feminism is all about talking about how everything in society is holding the woman down, blaming patriarchy and sexism for it, while ignoring issues that men suffer from more than women (education for example). Isn't feminism about equality between men and women, but when people bring up things like custody and how it actually hurts men more than women it either isn't talked about or dismissed as sexism.
120  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of "leftists" with shows on RT on: October 15, 2016, 06:36:38 pm
The technical term is 'useful idiot'.
121  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Newtown families lawsuit against gun manufacturor Remington dismissed. on: October 15, 2016, 06:28:41 pm
Correct decision, unless we also want to sue Stanley for murders committed with their axes.
122  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: TV News/Media battleground maps megathread on: October 15, 2016, 06:21:01 pm
Hard to see how that map matches their own daily tracker saying the race is a tie.

Because they know daily tracking polls are crap.
123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are the Clintons responsible for JFK Jr.'s death? on: October 09, 2016, 03:40:16 pm
I just saw a video cronicallizing the mysterious deaths of people connected to the Clintons (like him and Vince Foster) so chances are possible that killing political opponets/insiders that leak out information is what Clintons are doing.

You need to practice more discernment when it comes to online sourcing if you believe any of that.
124  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Could republicans confirm Merrick Garland if HRC wins? on: October 06, 2016, 10:52:45 pm
I would expect Obama to withdraw the nomination and declare that upon further deliberation, he's decided the GOP are right and the next president should get to pick their own justice.

He better do this. Anything else is just being a pussy and not knowing how to play hardball.
125  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would support a line-item veto for the president? on: October 05, 2016, 07:38:36 pm
 Shouldn't the president be allowed to oppose certain sections of a bill without opposing the whole thing?

Yes. But that's not what we're talking about. This thread is about if the President should have the right to pass only certain sections of a bill into law, thus totally undermining the entire process.
