126  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: When will we spank ISIL? on: October 15, 2014, 09:03:42 pm
- so is it ISIS or ISIL ? Not following this much in English, so which one and what do both mean ? ISIS tends to put me in an Egyptian mythology mood, whereas ISIL rather brings me back to the times when I actually knew a little sindarin and memorized the whole lineage of Númenor...

Neither. It's the Islamic State, or "IS" for short. The media/Western governments just call it ISIL as not to "legitimize" them by referring to them as the Islamic State. It used to be ISIL but they changed their name after becoming a bigger deal after their offensive in Iraq.
127  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Ebola Thread (US Domestic) on: October 15, 2014, 08:59:39 pm
Of course we should institute a travel ban on majorly affected nations. Anybody who's even so much as played Pandemic knows this is the first step. I have yet to hear a serious argument as to why we shouldn't. We now have multiple Ebola cases in America explicitly because of our refusal to take this necessary step.

Containment is the first step to resolving this.

Mondale

Carter, of course.

South Park is easily the funniest animated show on television.

That's not what I'm saying, the whole mantra of the ad was really poor taste.

No it wasn't. Abbot sued a landowner for 10 million dollars because a random tree fell on him while he was jogging. That's a gouge if there ever was one and then he had the gall to counter other people's much more reasonable claims.

He deserves to have his hypocrisy exposed.

Clear FF.

All except Indiana and Florida South of the Panhandle.

No, it's unrepresentative of the changes in the Western U.S.   

This and the Upper South.
138  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SC issuing SSM licsenses on: October 08, 2014, 09:04:42 pm
Don't expect it in York County anytime soon.

Yeah, lol. The Piedmont is the more so-con part of that state as opposed to the Country Clubbers on the coast. It's the Jim DeMint wing of the SC GOP and the Lindsey Graham wing of the party.
139  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Wealthy Americans giving less to charity, non-wealthy giving more on: October 07, 2014, 01:57:53 pm
To be fair, I think that brings up an important point about charity.  The reason Utahans give so much to charity is that Mormons give 10% of their income to the Mormon church.  I think religious charities may account for a good percentage of Republican charitable giving. 

This is the card in the deck that tilts the "charitable giving" statistic in favor of Republicans. It's dishonest once you think about it.

HP is the correct answer.

Well, he surely was a HP in many ways, but also a literal FF, so both must be the correct answer.

Isn't Martinez said to stay in NM due to family issues?

I don't know, but if not her then I guess he could pick Jindal or something.
144  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: SCOTUS rejects all SSM petitions on: October 06, 2014, 07:16:20 pm
Disgusting that the court refuses to perform its job again.

You know who I blame for this fiasco? The Founding Fathers. They invented an imaginary right, no taxation without representation, even though their own laws excluded large numbers of taxpayers from voting. Now we have an imaginary right to homosexual marriage.

If stayed with Britain we wouldn't have the out-of-control court system caused by "judicial review".

Good news! Looks like the social conservatives are angry and everyone else is rejoicing!
145  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: White mother sues sperm bank for reparations for her black child on: October 06, 2014, 04:37:07 pm
Whether or not it's legal to ask for a sperm from a specific race is besides the point. It's clearly immoral to have race as an option.

No it isn't. Don't be silly. People want kids that look like them typically speaking. This way you can imply that it's "yours" to other people.

147  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who would Romney pick as a running mate? on: October 06, 2014, 04:33:31 pm
Susana Martinez.  She provides geographic balance and is a Hispanic woman. Ryan is being promoted within the House and wouldn't throw that away to be Vice President. Not to mention the senior folks in the House wouldn't be pleased if he did.

Romney isn't stupid, he's learned his lesson.
148  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Generic R vs Generic D on: October 06, 2014, 04:25:46 pm
Generic D. Colorado is hit or miss.

149  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: maoist, trotskyst, moderate...but where are stalinist parties ? on: October 06, 2014, 04:21:54 pm
IIRC the Progressive Labor Party in the USA identified itself as Stalinist. At least I know they did for a time in the 2000's.
150  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What Happens if You Give Teens Free Birth Control? on: October 06, 2014, 04:20:03 pm
I didn't start the conversation about arrested psychological development and wanton morality. I will; however, force Democrats to realize they are just as bad, if not worse, than the right-wing.

Lol.
