1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: King: Paul Presidency would be a disaster on: Today at 11:21:26 am
Neo-con attacks quasi-libertarian. News at 11.
2  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Christopher Hitchens: The Case Against Hillary Clinton on: Today at 08:12:09 am
Christopher Hitchens? As in the token atheist cheerleader for the Iraq War, that Christopher Hitchens?
3  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Is this proper behavior for a mod? on: March 27, 2014, 04:39:28 pm

Just asking.
4  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / FiveThirtyEight (Nate Silver) is back. on: March 18, 2014, 10:15:02 am
Link for the lazy.

Couldn't think of an ideal board to put this in, so I settled for the most active one.

If Ukraine proper were to be split in two, what city is most likely to become capital of the eastern part?
6  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Ukraine Crisis on: March 11, 2014, 05:46:59 am
Let's not kid ourselves here. Arafat may have been an authoritarian ruler, but it is simply a fact that any possible Palestinian leader that wouldn't be an outright Quisling to his own people, would always find himself automatically vilified in the post-Holocaust West merely for being opposed by Jews.

8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International What-ifs / Re: Would Margaret Thatcher have been a Democrat if she was an American politician? on: February 18, 2014, 02:16:41 pm
I don't see the "Ha ha ha, no" option.
9  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Liz Cheney: I'll be back on: February 02, 2014, 04:35:44 pm
Next time, Gadget, next time!
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: what makes everybody think Hillary Clinton will run in 2016?? on: January 30, 2014, 01:09:28 pm
Another strong argument in favor of her running, which hasn't been mentioned yet, is that by not making an announcement either way, she has effectively paralyzed the Democratic Party and that if she were to decide not to run after all, she would effectively throw the party into disarray, with their members then needing to hastily realign themselves behind other candidates. I don't see why she would want to damage her party that way.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What's taking so long for Puerto Rico to become a state? on: January 13, 2014, 02:20:08 pm
They voted to become a state in 2012 and Congress ignored it.

No, they didn't. The fact of the matter is, that the people of Puerto Rico have never shown any majority preference for a change to any particular status. To settle this issue correctly, any multiple-choice referendum would have to allow for a ranking of the different options, after which, ideally, a second binary referendum should be held to confirm the winner (if it's a change). My guess is that, by this procedure, the status quo (or something close to that) would still win out at the moment.
12  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Ariel Sharon's health deteriorates on: January 11, 2014, 02:11:08 pm
I can't believe you people are venerating a war criminal.
13  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Steven Seagal for AZ Governor? on: January 06, 2014, 06:34:10 pm
I think Steven just feels the need to get in the picture again after Jean-Claude stole his thunder with that Volvo ad.
14  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Inside the Saudi 9/11 coverup on: December 18, 2013, 12:08:58 pm
Dude everyone knows this.

Doesn't like 1/3 of the country still think Iraq was responsible for 9/11??

And, at one time, something like 90% of the soldiers. Classic case of rationalization.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Why is there so little debate in Congress? on: December 03, 2013, 04:16:03 pm
I find it striking how there is hardly any actual interaction going on between members in either of the two chambers; the sessions mostly consist of members making long monologues and if any questions are asked, they're usually just part of a friendly setup between members who are already on the same side on the issue. Is this culture just a result of having a two-party presidential system where positions and votes are not expected to be subject to persuasion on the floor? It's certainly not a given that any deliberative assembly must work this way.

17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: USA thread for shootings on: October 21, 2013, 08:48:09 pm
Perhaps a moderator should sticky this thread.
18  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Gohmert warns of new Ottoman Empire, global Caliphate on: July 28, 2013, 08:29:27 pm
Projection, it ain't just a river in Egypt.
19  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Could Hillary Clinton win all states with 10+ EV's? on: June 19, 2013, 12:52:53 pm
Win all that but not Arkansas?
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Hillary Clinton was pushing Obama to close Guantanamo. on: May 22, 2013, 08:25:08 am
What a brazenly cheap primary ploy.
21  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Ray Manzarek on: May 21, 2013, 08:13:48 am
Seriously, is this forum a joke or something? Probably the greatest rock keyboardist of all time has died and I can't find any mention of it here (I'll gladly be proven wrong in case I haven't looked hard enough).
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Paul: Benghazi affair should disqualify Clinton from holding office again on: May 07, 2013, 01:09:56 pm
No, Iraq should disqualify Clinton from becoming President, but apparently all the "liberals" seem to be suffering from collective amnesia.
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Poll - Tony Blair State Funeral on: April 21, 2013, 07:48:34 pm
His ashes should be clandestinely scattered over the Persian Gulf.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Nixon's treason in 1968 on: March 16, 2013, 05:00:23 pm
Surely, if they had dropped the hammer on Nixon over this, Ronnie would have thought twice before pulling the same stunt 12 years later.
25  General Politics / Economics / Re: What was the surplus used for in 1998, 1999, and 2000? on: March 08, 2013, 11:22:13 pm
Doesn't having a surplus pretty much mean by definition that it's being used to pay down the debt?
