Cramer - probably shouldn't be President, but we went to the same high school and I dropped off a package at the William C. Cramer Post Office a couple days ago.

Ugh, is culture warrior-ism coming back?

Fortunately, nobody listens to Bobby Jindal, so no.

I've been pro-Sanders for a while, but if Biden gets in I would reconsider that.

10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Somewhere in Oklahoma abolished Columbus Day on: October 07, 2015, 06:06:08 pm
It's because it's Oklahoma. How often does anywhere in Oklahoma implement progressive SJW policies?

It's Anadarko, not OKC - your equivalent would be the headline "Minnesota town bans teaching of evolution" and the town being Prinsburg. Though, given the specifics of the town involved, "Minnesota town abolishes Columbus Day, replaces with Leif Eriksson day" would also work.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Somewhere in Oklahoma abolished Columbus Day on: October 07, 2015, 04:08:53 pm
"41% Native American town abolishes Columbus Day" is not a surprising headline and I'm not sure why it's worthy of a thread.
12  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Is it normal/desirable that school kids are in WhatsApp groups with teachers? on: October 06, 2015, 04:22:45 pm
I text my debate coaches pretty regularly, but no other teachers (as I frequently need a rapid response from them, and people check their texts more often than their email). I know some other teachers have a system that sends out text messages to all their students, but it's not something like a message group.

I'm deeply concerned about its effects on pharmaceutical prices but am otherwise supportive of the agreement.
17  General Politics / Economics / Re: Challenge: Kill and Replace the Fed on: October 05, 2015, 10:20:27 am
Replace the Fed with something that does the same thing, but with a long and clunky name that's difficult to form into a short, chant-able political slogan.

Grayson is capitalizing on the Sanders surge, whether or not he actually stands with Sanders 100% of the time, he represents the same anti-establishment energy. I definitely see him winning the primary, in which case, bye bye general to whoever the Republican is.

Yes, this is correct. I unliked a "Tampa Bay for Sanders" Facebook page after it changed its name to "Tampa Bay for Sanders & Grayson."

Grayson would beat McCollum.
Are you serious? His challenger would be ALAN GRAYSON.
I deleted the comment LOL. Seriously, though, Republicans shouldn't get too cocky if Grayson gets the nomination. They will have to fight hard to hold this seat, with or without Grayson. That being said, they would both lose to Atwater, one by 4 or 5 points, the other by 12 points.

I'd be most optimistic about our chances of beating notorious loser Bill McCollum compared to any other of the GOPers.

Ugh why is Grayson beating Murphy in the polls?

Yeah, he's more liberal, but if Democrats want a Democrat to win then just VOTE FOR MURPHY.

Agh

It seems you haven't had much experience with the FDP.

22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Short Rubio on: October 01, 2015, 04:53:12 am
I disagree with this crazy idea that Senator Rubio isn't a policy wonk, he has been bold during the course of this campaign. His positions on the issues are clearly laid out on his website, he has articulated his positions during the debates, and he has gone to work on issues he cares about in the Florida Legislature and in the U.S. Senate. He was the first candidate to really publish detailed proposals on his website.

Trump attacks him because he's hispanic, let's be honest.
He also wrote a book on policy when he was Florida House Speaker. He's not quite Paul Ryan, but he's not a Trump either.

It was not a very good book.

GFW, mostly because they seem most likely to piss off the FP.

Cuomo/Specter
25  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Pope Francis vs. Dalai Lama on: September 24, 2015, 08:44:34 pm
The Dalai Lama said he'd be fine with his successor being a woman so him.

But I'd vote for someone like Rachel Held Evans over both.

This is the bizarre occasion where I can say I wholeheartedly agree with BRTD on a religious question.
