Nah. Although I'm on the far end of "normal" for sure.

Those ADD guys are always so classy, this must be a mistake!

Who are the "AAD guys" (typo corrected)? If you mean everyone who posts on AAD, that includes several moderators, including the one who posted that thread and the one with the account compromised.

If you're implying that anyone on AAD or involved in administrating it requested it, then you're completely wrong. A poster appeared on AAD with links showing the obtained info from the mod board who had never posted prior to this. The AAD administrator actually edited out the links, which I'll point out is a HUGE deal since moderation virtually never happens on AAD, I can count the number of posts modded on one hand. The leaker has not divulged their identity on AAD either.

Also I'll note that the admin of AAD is not a current Atlas poster, never has been a poster, has stated he never wishes to ever post here, and has shown no interest in internal Atlas drama. AAD is his only priority.

That's not true. The Hot Guys thread was basically obliterated. Sad Which is why I hardly go, except to watch Libertas keep flying further and further off the rails.

I would certainly participate.

We should consider the in-game story that led to the formation of whatever this country is. What laws do we start with on the books? How did it come to be that the country previously known as America is a parliamentary democracy?
105  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Can one be an atheist and believe in an afterlife? on: July 20, 2015, 03:23:27 pm
I don't see why not. I ground my openness to an afterlife in the multiverse theory. If there are universes out there with laws of physics that we can't even comprehend, who's to say we don't "sink" into one of these universes after we die in this one?

I mean, there's no way to really know. And with this example, it's more about science than some kind of fantastical religion.

That may be so, but Huntsman had basically zero self-awareness. No one cared about a "trust deficit." Kasich will market himself better. It may not pay off, mind you, but he's certainly the real deal.

Bush. But if I ever believed in throwing my vote away to sad little candidates who could never win squat, Sen. Graham would have my vote. I do have a soft spot for him.

This happens to me occasionally when my internet locks up (often for mysterious reasons, but I don't think it's virus-related). Probably just gonna have to live with it, but I wouldn't worry. Smiley
115  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Do you support the abolition of slavery? on: July 15, 2015, 02:42:20 am
What really gets me is when free men flaunt it everywhere I go. The free mafia's agenda is now the promotion of freedom over God's will of traditional chattel slavery. Black fraudum is an affront to what it means to be a Christian in this country, and it is absurd that I would be trodden on for simply expressing my belief.
116  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: You're a Republican strategist... on: July 13, 2015, 10:18:15 pm
Considering how Indiana voted in 2008, it should be gray for any Republican except Trump until proved otherwise. Likewise NE-02.

indiana was a total fluke in 2008. We're back to our GOP awesomeness.
I do have a question for you, though: You're clearly a conservative Republican, so why does your icon say that you're a libertarian?

Because he doesn't understand libertarianism.

Meh. I don't viscerally hate him like I used to. In fact, he makes me smile pretty often these days. But to suggest he's actually been in control of anything for, like, the past five years, is laughable... which makes it pretty difficult to judge his performance. He has been at the mercy of events for better or for worse. Now that the economy seems to be doing better, I'm being a bit less harsh than I once was, but it doesn't have anything to do with him.

Of the ones I've been to (admittedly only five), I'd say Ontario and Nova Scotia. British Columbia is bound to jump up the list though when I move there for school at the end of next month. Kitsilano, here I come...!

If you're doing it right it doesn't have to hurt. Wink Come to think of it, maybe that's CCSF's problem.

123  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Are Republican Party policies the root cause of nearly all of our problems? on: July 10, 2015, 10:21:32 pm
How should I describe my relationship with trickle-down economics...? I'll put it like this: I believe in trickle-down hardship but not trickle-down wealth. In other words, I believe in the basic precepts of greed. Tongue And the way I see it, the Democrats are too oblivious to the fact that punishing the rich will only encourage them to squeeze more out of the middle class and the poor. On the flip side, the GOP is too oblivious to the fact that tax breaks and other special treats for the rich will only make them richer and widen the income gap.

So it's basically a wash. In good times I think the Democrats' strategy is the best of the two because the consequences are not as severe. During bad economic times, I think the Republicans' strategy is best because at least it won't hurt.

Anyway, if we're talking tax policy, I'm a big proponent of setting the rates at some fixed spot and leaving them there forever. Tongue Reagan's massive tax cuts were problematic because, as we've now seen, they've gotten the country used to a new normal that is not exactly sustainable. And raising them to where they probably should be would be politically untenable and catastrophic for people who did not plan accordingly (almost everyone).
124  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Current status of SSM in the holdout states (MAP) on: July 09, 2015, 10:27:24 pm
I'm glad there's resistance.
Arkansas has one county clerk currently who is "waiting on word from Above" as to whether she'll issue a SSM license; no one has applied yet in her county. I consider this to be an issue.

I really hope she's referring to her supervisor and not the one and only G oh double D

I hope she's referring to the One and Only God.


No I mean the One whose coming back on the White Horse with.... I think Isaiah 66 explains it much better. That would be Jesus.

I have more reason to believe in Santa Claus. And at least Santa Claus doesn't twist his followers into spreading hate and bigotry.
125  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Bold predictions. on: July 09, 2015, 12:34:34 pm
Bernie Sanders makes the primaries exceptionally close. Hillary Clinton still comes out on top, but the liberal base has really put her feet to the fire, so she needs to find a quick way to shore up liberal support for the general election. Feeling personal animosity towards Bernie Sanders after the primary campaign, there is no way she chooses him to be her running mate, despite strong cries for her to make it so. Instead, she feels her only option is to select Elizabeth Warren as her running mate. Warren goes on to dazzle crowds and outshine Clinton. A series of ill-advised comments from Warren begin to tilt the race in favour of Republican nominee Jeb Bush, and by election day he has a slim but consistent lead in the polls. Jeb Bush wins the election.
