Maybe I'm misremembering, but did he even once discuss his border wall plan?
2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Grade Lester Holt's performance as moderator. on: September 26, 2016, 11:23:04 pm
Fantastic. One of the few in the media who realizes that it's his job to report on the truth and that the truth is, Trump has said and done way more objectionable things than Hillary Clinton.

Nah, Hillary was always the strongest candidate, and all the others knew it. I mean, she came within a hair of beating Obama himself eight years ago.
7  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Who comes out on top in the first Debate? on: September 22, 2016, 05:44:37 pm
I am optimistic enough to believe Clinton will win big and turn the whole tide of the election.

If she doesn't, it's entirely the media's fault. It is clear as day which candidate is more competent on the issues.

His comments today.

You're kidding yourself if you think one generic bigoted, ignorant, stupid remark from Trump will fundamentally change the race.

Meh. The black community has reclaimed the word on their terms. Let me know when Donald Trump says it. Then I'll be outraged.

George W. Bush actually had the requisite knowledge to be president, which is not something we can say about stupid cock Trump.

Although in all seriousness, there's nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people... maybe there is, I don't know. I think his bodyguards should drop all weapons. Disarm immediately. Take their guns away, let's see what happens to him.

I was going to say a health scare akin to Hillary's, but then I remembered that she is held to a completely different gender-dependent standard and that Trump would rise in the polls substantially if he had a heart-episode or something similar.

Just disgusting. America sucks. The right answer is staring them in the face (and has been since, like, 2007).

That sounds super interesting, Xahar. Like, it actually seems like a real paper. I write super flakey stuff. Here's something I did last April.



   According to Edward Wilson, the American zoologist who coined the term, “biophilia” describes “the innate human urge to affiliate with other forms of life,” both flora and fauna, in the natural sphere. Biophilia, then, seems to be a string that connects people with place. Unsurprisingly, it is often encoded in “myths, religions, art, rituals, songs, and dances.” Although scholars like Gregory Cajete most often identify biophilia in Indigenous cultural expressions, I bring up the term here, at the start of an essay on wilderness and its role in Canadian citizenship, because biophilia—or, at least, an appropriated, manipulated, and political form of biophilia—has obviously become a foundational part of the Canadian story through similar means.

   A recent trip to the local movie theatre confirmed this fact for me when the pre-show advertisements started to roll and I was treated to a particularly moving spot from Parks Canada. Accompanied by stirring music, the ad cycles through a number of short scenes: a man and woman walk their bikes up to the shoreline of a picturesque lake; a family of hikers looks out at the stunning mountain vistas; a mother and child enjoy an empty beach; friends have a musical jam session on the Canadian Shield. In a nod to biophilia and its constructed place in Canadian citizenship, the narrator embraces the wilderness as a place that provides “time to connect with nature.” Even more notable is the way he urges viewers to “find [their] red chair moment” as each of the actors settles in to enjoy Canada’s landscape from the comfort of a bright red Muskoka chair. The chair, it seems, represents the real Canada. Becoming a real Canadian thus requires sitting down in that metaphorical chair and interacting with the wilderness in a very particular way. But what happens when barriers, real or imagined, dissuade or prevent Canadians from accessing that chair? What does it mean for their place in Canada?



I didn't even get to my formal thesis statement there, lol. But you get the gist.

I'm just starting a paper that I'm getting really into, and it made me curious about some of the things all of you are exploring in your academic lives...

So why not encourage people to give a little sampler, hm? I'll post mine shortly, but I don't wanna go first, haha. Maybe this is a stupid thread, but what the heck!

1. Presidential - Podiums
2. Presidential - Town Hall
3. Presidential - Table and chairs??

VP - Huh

Just wanna emphasize that my argument relies on the premise that she has more than enough money to go around. And that does seem to be the case.
25  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential General Election Polls / Re: GA-Monmouth: Trump +3 on: September 19, 2016, 12:32:43 pm
I think she's gotta go for it. Her numbers here are more resilient than they are elsewhere, it seems. Georgia could be a silver bullet if Trump seems to be doing better elsewhere.
