The fact that this columnist is using a variant of the term 'mansplaining' takes away a lot of credibility.

This seems like a losing strategy to me.

Registration isn't what makes something a red state or a blue state.

This.

I wouldn't be surprised if the only reason so many people there register as independent is so they can vote in either primary.

The Art of the Dill.
132  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Christie drop out after NH? on: February 04, 2016, 08:34:58 pm
If he doesn't finish as the top establishment candidate, he'll have to.  He's practically been living in NH for months now and has banked everything on the state.

My favorite character in the Star Wars universe (haven't seen The Force Awakens).

135  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Des Moines Register Editorial: Something smells in the Democratic Party on: February 04, 2016, 04:02:58 pm
But then they'd lose their guaranteed first place on the primary calendar. NH would fight for it for sure. It's still in IA's interest to keep the caucus, no matter how stupid and broken it is.

But at the very least can the Democrats use the much more reasonable GOP system in the caucus? Where you just vote instead of this over complicated process where we don't even know the actual vote totals.
136  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What is the best time to start an Iowa watch party? on: January 31, 2016, 09:42:57 pm
You will want to start around 7:45 PM Eastern time and I personally think MSNBC has the best coverage. They have Chuck Todd, Steve Kornacki, and Steve Schmidt as excellent analysts. Not to mention they easily have the coolest theme music.
137  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Post-Selzer- Which Republican wins the Iowa caucus? on: January 31, 2016, 01:42:27 am
Trump will win Iowa. Cruz comes close 2nd.
138  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: If Trump wins Iowa... on: January 31, 2016, 12:29:04 am
Cruz: Surge in SC as backlash against a "Trump coronation" (a la Gingrich 2012 against the Romney coronation), ride the wave of momentum to victories in the SEC states

That's a totally inaccurate comparison.
139  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Apparently, Sanders is trying to rein in "Bernie Bros" on: January 30, 2016, 10:19:56 pm
Buzzfeed gonna Buzz.

Nobody who actually votes cares about this internet drama.
140  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Your Iowa GOP Predictions. on: January 30, 2016, 12:28:38 am
Carson, Huckabee and Santorum all drop out. Support and donations for Fiorina completely dries up but she stays on until New Hampshire anyways. Cruz pulls out in New Hampshire to focus on South Carolina while Rubio and Trump split his supporters. Bush, Kasich, and Christie begin to sell a 3rd place finish in New Hampshire to their donors as Rubio begins to poll a decisive second. Trump continues to have a commanding lead both nationally and in the rest of the early states.

I don't see how that works. How does the third place winner (behind Rubio, who get's third in Iowa and a strong second in NH) even begin to suggest that establishment donors should continue funding their campaigns when Rubio is clearly the only serious alternative?

Stupid poll.  Your thread title question is the opposite of your poll question.

lol, I just noticed. I voted the opposite of what I wanted.
142  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Could cocaine and khat be legalized in another 50 years? on: January 29, 2016, 02:11:13 pm
Cocaine is a very, very bad drug. Over time, it causes brain damage. No. I have no idea about the other drug. I have never heard of it.

If used in relative moderation it's fine. Just don't be a moron and you should be fine.

That was good lol.

It's time to completely get rid of the whole college tribunal system and have these things taken care of by law enforcement. Not "expel him because he looks like the guy who raped me".

The stupid Mattress Girl issue is the worst display of this type of "listen and believe" mentality. This witch hunt needs to end and we need to stand up to the small minority of crazies on college campuses who think they can run the place because the silence of the majority.

Yeah, if that doesn't tell you who's ahead in Iowa, I don't know what would.
146  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Hell on: January 27, 2016, 03:02:52 pm
Oh my God, THIS.  If you want to be flabbergasted by people's belief in the literal Genesis creation story or in the events of Exodus, fine ... but don't extend that to come up with the idea that believing in a higher consciousness - which in and of itself is simply saying that you do not believe that the Universe (or whatever multiverse it might reside in) created itself out of nothing.  That is at least as fantastic of a scenario as some kind of intelligence residing outside of the four dimensions we can perceive, IMO.

Except that's now what I'm talking about. You and Rockefeller GOP are phrasing this in a fallacious manner.

The idea that their might be a God type entity isn't "just like" thinking that Jesus is his only son and died for our sins and then was risen three days later. The latter is a ridiculous thing to believe. Basically thinking their is/might be a higher power is reasonable but actually believing in any of the major religions isn't really.

147  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Milwaukee Muslim man wanted to attack Masonic Temple on: January 27, 2016, 02:51:08 pm
If I recall correctly, many extremist Muslims share the white supremacist view that the Masons, Jews (specially the anti-Semitic world-controlling conspiracy theory view of Jews), etc are one and the same.

This basically.
148  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Pub Establishment Strategy - tank Cruz first, and then dump the Donald on: January 26, 2016, 02:37:51 pm
This will be as successful as Ron Paul's strategy of attacking Santorum first so that he could be the last man standing against Romney.
149  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Senator Sasse, R-NE raises issue of Donald Trump's sexual affairs on: January 26, 2016, 02:33:21 pm
This is offensive as you are mocking the faith and Christianity.

What's not to mock?

Disgusting.   Quit glorifying adultery and fornication.

What's not to glorify?
