26  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Ed FitzGerald for VP? on: May 19, 2015, 09:38:43 pm
Nonono, for maximum success, go for a Wendy Davis/Ed FitzGerald ticket. That'll be sure to give a 50 state sweep!
Where the f[inks] is Martha Coakley?

The pick for Attorney General, maybe?

If it didn't go to a convention in 2012, it's not going to convention in 2016.

Owls are cool bro. It'd be a better party animal than elephants or donkeys.

I think the Modern Whigs have the owl as their party symbol.

Grayson's latest rhetoric, this time about his estranged wife: "Golddiggers gotta dig."
31  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Former congressional candidate admits to planning to burn Muslim town down on: May 18, 2015, 11:57:57 pm
Two questions...

1. Was the town seriously named Islamberg?

2. His folio is closed and there is no paper anywhere to be seen. What the hell is Robert Doggart doing with the pen in his hand? (Keeping it handy in case he needs to stab a Muslim person in the throat?)



1. Yep.

2. Again, yep. That smile is his murderface.
32  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: People who Aren't Running but you can tell WANT to be President in the Future on: May 18, 2015, 11:26:15 pm
Definitely Cotton, Cuomo, and any of the senators and governors below 50 years of age. Maybe not Mike Lee.
33  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Alan Grayson on: May 18, 2015, 11:24:12 pm
Overrated blowhard and profoundly scummy character, and to assuage Beet I do acknowledge that Patrick Murphy also has a certain level of scuminess. I just think that Grayson's is more damaging and will also cause him to lose if he's a general election candidate for Senate.

Where did that LKP vote surge come from? And why? The LKP seem like just another boring center-right party. Why all the love for them?
Not really a surge, just a united Right versus a disunited Left.

Sure, but so far they've got a higher portion of the votes than they or their parent parties usually get, even when it's clear that the blue avatars on the forum are watching and voting in this thread. It's like the Hearse of Monticello thread when Grover Cleveland is on the ballot.
35  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1932 Conventions (The Hearse at Monticello) on: May 18, 2015, 11:15:36 pm
Wheeler/Long

Because Wheeler didn't deserve to be booted out so early.

This, and also I want to see how long it will take for Long to try and assassinate Wheeler.

Question: Are you counting Mexican ancestry as "native"? Because I would agree that Mexican-Americans tend to have a lot of Mestizo heritage, but that's not what people think of when they say "Native American".

Per Sanchez, she says she's part-Native American. http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/2015/05/17/u-s-senate-candidate-apologizes-after-war-cry-in-reference-to-native-americans-during-convention/

I think all she was honestly saying was that she confused Native vs Indian  - but it didn't go over well at the convention hall. 

I have always respected Ms. Sanchez. She's as far from a racist as can be.

This the the same lady that claimed that the "Vietnamese" were trying to take her seat.
38  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: CA-Sen: California Quake on: May 18, 2015, 01:04:44 am
Yeah, I took it as meaning that she was told that she was going into a meeting with an Indian-American, didn't know whether that meant Native American or legitimately Indian so she was signaling her confusion to her staff member to find an answer.

Exactly. There's no racism here. She's half-native herself!

Question: has anyone called them "thugs" yet? Or questioned whether it was worth it to educate these bikers?
40  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Would the death penalty be justified for Hitler? on: May 17, 2015, 09:44:50 pm
For a monster of Hitler's magnitude, yes. If you commit genocide or try your hardest to commit it, you clearly aren't repentant, and your crime is worthy of the death penalty. Though I might be against it since it would make him a martyr to idiotic neo-Nazis (even moreso then he already is).

Seems like someone who used a relatively legitimate ideology as a cover for being a mere violent criminal.

Can whoever's causing the late LKP surges to stop, at least for this vote? At least let us have female emancipation!

No, Kreisky is a Nazi apologist and thus completely unfit to be dog catcher.

But what if the KPO wins? They won't have Kreisky as Chancellor.

July 28, 2016.

The goofiest thing about this is that she turned out to be talking about someone of Southeast Asian descent, aka actual Indian-Americans.
45  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1968 General Election - Austrian Election Series on: May 16, 2015, 10:34:44 pm
KPO, they're advocating for good causes and they haven't formed government yet.
46  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Coup in Burundi on: May 16, 2015, 01:17:59 am
Not worse than Bay of Pigs though, certainly.

Or the Bayou of Pigs. A half dozen white supremacists try and overthrow the government of a nation of primarily African descent, and don't even get there.
47  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Nebraska is going to get rid of the Death Penalty on: May 16, 2015, 01:13:41 am
Disgusting.

Disgusting that a bad policy is being abolished?

As I've previously stated, it's the only policy that protects inmates and correctional officers. Without the death penalty, people serving life terms can kill whoever they want with no fear of consequences.

But they already do that; death penalties don't seem to be a deterrent for those who would commit crimes like that. Also, death penalties seem to target the wrong person far too often.

Looking at their Wiki page, they seem kind of useless in achieving any of their goals, but considering Netanyahu is one of their opponents, I'd have to say FF.

2022, if Dems have control of redistricting in 2020. If not... When a Republican is elected president and pulls a Dubya.
