At least he isn't tapped for the Homeland Security Department. Always see the positive Tongue

You do understand you'll have to knock on wood now, right?

I'm going out on a limb here and say that even Hillary has more of a chance to become President now.
3  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trumpcare Megathread: Senate enters "Vote-a-Rama" on: July 26, 2017, 04:02:43 pm
Six GOP Senators voted for a bill in 2015 and against the same bill in 2017 with the only difference being that they knew the 2015 bill would be vetoed.

Let's be honest here, Obama also voted against raising the debt ceiling when he was a Senator.

Obama's tweet in support has exactly 140 characters, so he likely put some effort in composing it.

Clinton voters: 0/75/26  (yes, that's a zero)

Interesting, that adds up to 101 percent, which could only have been possible if it's exactly 0, 74½ and 25½ percent and they rounded both halves up. It also likely means they didn't do any weighting.

A total of 32,204,124 votes were cast for candidates, of which 14,213,883 (44.1%) went to losers and a further 7,820,794 (24.3%) that went to winners were not necessary for victory, for a combined total of 22,034,677 wasted votes or 68.4%.

There is an interesting parallel here with Ted Kennedy and the adoption of the ACA.

I'm getting increasingly convinced that ReaganfanTrump is a bitter Democrat who is just out to make Trump supporters and other assorted right-wingers look bad.

Again with the referendum with more than two options! If you're not going to allow a ranked choice here (which given the various issues is at least understandable), it should be a binary choice, with one option being the status quo. If one option (statehood most likely) wins without a majority, we have the exact same mess as last time!

They originally had it as statehood or status quo but Bureagard and Trump made them change it back.

That is not correct. It was the "status quo" option which was omitted and pushed back in by the Justice Department.

The video in that tweet was uploaded to Twitter itself, but the previous tweet has a link to a website showing the same clip as an embedded YouTube-video, whose page you can get to in various ways.

Just see it as delayed punishment for the coalition.

Sky news is saying Tories are doing a bit better than exit poll. A majority is still possible... 324, 326.. maybe 327.

Given the reality of Brexit, this might actually be their worst case scenario in the long term.

Scotland saving the Tories now? What kind of timeline is this?
17  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: UK General Election, 2017 - Election Day and Results Thread on: June 08, 2017, 08:13:25 pm
The real realignment this election may be conservatives gaining Scottish unionists and young people finally turning out for labor for real.

And Corbyn successfully healing the Remain/Leave divide.

I think we can call it and one of the few good news from tonight, RIP UKIP.

That's a bit like celebrating the death of a suicide bomber after detonating at the intended target.

How many seats are the SNP on track of losing?

Jeremy Corbyn now favorite of becoming PM on Betfair!!!

What? Seriously?

At the moment it fluctuated back to Theresa again, but remember also that she is not likely to remain PM even with a Tory government.

So much for the UKIP being a "gateway drug".

HAHAHAHA! The country is completely f'ed now.

I wouldn't easily rule out polls where Labour are doing (relatively) well, because, if anything, pollsters have the tendency to overcompensate for the direction in which were wrong last time (their underestimation of the Tories in 2015). Of course, one can also take this to the next level and third guess oneself, and so forth.
25  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Breaking News: Iraqi Kurds to hold Independence Referendum on September 25 on: June 07, 2017, 04:25:37 pm
I thought the Iraqi Kurds were sufficiently content with the large degree of autonomy they are already enjoying, instead of rocking the boat too much by going all out for independence. This change in sentiment must have been the result of the pathetic initial showing the Iraqi army made in the face of ISIS.
