1  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Clinton says half her Cabinet will be women on: April 28, 2016, 11:43:35 am
Oh, yes, the leftist affirmative action crap. It's just an excuse to be sexist/racist in non-traditional ways. Society needs to wake up and realize that it is NEVER OKAY to consider someone's race or gender when evaluating them for a given position.


YES IT IS.

When institutions are established by one group and the culture in them favours that one group - to increase representation and ensure a plurality of voices are heard unfortunately AA is needed. Also, do you really think in a country of 150 million women, there are NONE that would be able to meet the requirements for a cabinet position? By having AA, it forces people in power to consider people they would normally overlook because historically when a man and a woman have gone for the same position  and they have similar abilities 9 times out of 10 the woman would miss out.

Obvious pander for the woman's vote. I don't care if she wants women, or Hispanics, or whatever in her cabinet, but if she's actually picking a woman over a more qualified (and ideologically okay) man, that should be considered discrimination on the basis of sex, and therefore a crime.

The notion that by promoting a women some mystical incredible man is missing out is just ludicrous.

What's the point of having money if you live in a country that doesn't respect you as a person?

I can't believe how much has changed in under 3 years - like did anyone actually believe Bill Shorten could be our next PM??? Even if Labor doesn't win, the Coalition are going to be incredibly weakened from massive losses and disunity.

An election is definitely coming - Sarah Henderson the Lib in Corangamite accidentally had 1000 corflutes delivered to the ETU in Geelong.

Putting down my first pet was the hardest thing I ever did. You don't realise how much they impact your life until they're lying their struggling to breathe and it's painful but deep down their pain is not worth your joy. You are making and incredibly brave decision that deep down you know will be the best for her. It's hard to do, you will cry, you will be in pain but like a human if you care that much, you will never forget them. Pets are the best, they're always there for you and always willing to love you - cherish however long you have left, be sad but also be happy you had your pet in your life.

Superdelegates are not meant to be Democratic,  but the Democratic party shouldn't be entirely democratic - literally no political party anywhere in the world is. Why do Sanders supporters believe it should be?

I wish we could scrap the superdelegates.

Hillary would still win.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Iowa Democratic County Convention Results- Where to find?? on: March 12, 2016, 11:06:10 pm
This is what a Bernie supporter said about Polk -

I'm here at our Dem Polk County Convention. Hillary initially won Polk County the night of the caucus.

The preliminary numbers are as follows. Hillary 530; Bernie 600. Polk county has unofficially flipped to Bernie.

Hill camp does not like the numbers. They are completely freaking out. The Hill camp changed the rules and ordered all Bernie supporters leave the room, and again and be counted one by one. It's taking a long time. All 600 of us had to leave, wait in a hot atrium and file in individually and be checked off.

Bernie dem leaders told us that she's trying to wear is down. They're hoping we will leave. Many Bernie supporters with disabilities and many senior citizens toughing it out.

Apparently the County Chair had to quit after trying to manipulate 3 times

lol sure

They've always lived in a white bubble and can't see beyond their own world.

But Blacks in their silly, blind loyalty break for Clinton with over 3/4 support ...

Even if you don't think this is racist, it's incredibly offensive. It's you a white European saying African Americans do not have the agency to make their own choices, which is rooted in racism. You may not have intended it to come out that way but it did and as a moderator you should watch the language you use.

The Libs are imploding, they should have called an election as soon as they replaced Abbott.
