Wulfric's schtick begins to make sense when you realize he's doing a comedy act and the 90% of his posting that's just meaningless drivel about some special election in nebraska is just to give him the kind of credibility necessary to create truly hilarious content like this thread

The Nazi, Confederate, and South African flags are the ones I have a problem with, because they're the ones currently being used as symbols of racist groups. Someone flying the Ottoman flag or the flag of Zaire in their yard would be weird but wouldn't provoke the same reaction (if I even recognized it).
How could you not recognize the Ottoman flag??
because it looks almost exactly like the flag of turkey?

there's maybe eight people in the world who are orthodox doctrinaire marxists

I mean by that narrow definition, how many constitutionalists or Christians are there?

There's a lot of people who buy some elements of Marxism but I'm thinking specifically of people for whom "Marxist" is the best and most accurate ideological description (rather than "Leninist," "Maoist," "anarcho-communist," whatever)

I'm interested. If we can't get enough people here I know there's also an AAD league in the works

Donald Trump became president. You're really concerned that you were once a conservative/libertarian when you were 14 years old? I think we're entering the era where this sh-t isn't going to matter, friend.

Although I guess I can see why leftist purity might be getting you down. And I never use the word "leftist."

Could be worse...

Fair points both—just something that occurred to me while looking for an old thread, not something I'm too concerned about.

Question for Illinois Dems/Indies- If Kennedy & Pritzer both suck, who's the best candidate in your eyes? Biss?

I don't vote in IL but I'll be knocking doors for Biss. If I thought Pawar had a better chance to win I'd flip to him. Pritzker would be my choice against Kennedy or Drury.

Goddamnit. The first Kennedy to show some ambition in decades and he has to blow a winnable race. God f****** damnit.
Robert Kennedy will win this one tonight for you

I've been posting here since 2012 and, being a stupid 14-year-old, had a lot of bad and dumb opinions. being a stupid 14-year-old, I also chose a username that's fairly easily identifiable as me. is there any way I can delete all posts I made before a certain time or would I have to go in and manually delete each one?

Special election will be happening in Florida's 58th House District (in northeast HIllsborough County) after incumbent Rep. Dan Raulerson (R) resigned because of back pain. Initially this looked like it may be competitive - it's a GOP-leaning seat that Trump won by ten, but Dems were recruiting a credible candidate in former Plant City Mayor John Dicks and do have a registration advantage. Dicks, however, decided not to run, and as he was the only candidate the local party had been "actively recruiting" it seems like the FDP is gonna punt on this race.

Meanwhile, in House District 44 (eastern Orange County), a seat Hillary won by 7, a special election will be happening on October 10th. Democrats nominated some dude Paul Chandler, but a recent lawsuit may throw him off the ballot. Candidates must live in Florida for two years in order to run for state office, and the lawsuit claims Chandler voted in Missouri in November of 2016.

relatively low opinion of SPUSA among the various left-wing parties but it seems like the clear choice here. the Working Families Party is probably the best choice overall.

21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Florida 2018 Open Thread on: August 06, 2017, 09:24:19 pm
Phil Levine/Alicia Menendez is my ideal ticket. If not Menendez, I wouldn't mind Pam Iorio, Alex Sink, or Sean Murphy, or maybe even Alvin Brown.

I've been following Florida politics for years and I have no idea who Alicia Menendez or Sean Murphy are. Iorio and Sink are solidly retired, no idea what Alvin Brown's been up to.

Neutralize Senate and narrow House majority and win key Govs in IL, WI, VA and FL. After 2 specials in House were lost.
2020 will take if self with Mueller releases his investing report.

You're not actually Cory Booker. Quit the impersonation.

all your posts are dedicated to impersonating some low-energy pundit. at least OC's funny sometimes

Not sure if this was asked, but what is a "corncob"? Not the food, but the political term used in that anti-Harris picture.

back in 2011 dril tweeted "'im not owned!  im not owned!!', i continue to insist as i slowly shrink and transform into a corn cob." This got picked up and turned into a meme—someone who is bad at online will say something bad and get dunked on, and they'll insist that they're fine and actually find this all very funny even though they're getting dunked on. They post a bad take, they get dunked on, they react poorly—this whole cycle is corncobbing. It's a silly way to ridicule people for their bad opinions.

tripling a number very close to zero still produces a number very close to zero
