Nathan, Joe, calm down. You're both great posters, etc. etc. Can we go back to making fun of people now?

I got ENFP like usual! Sometimes I've barely gotten S and/or T before - the two middle letters are always close to 50/50 for me, whichever side they're on. It's very consistent though that I am always very E and very P.

77% E
64% N
60% F
86% P

for identity I am 92% turbulent

I voted no and I shall not explain myself ever
That's good. We wouldn't want our ideas coming under scrutiny or anything crazy like that.

I wonder if Rubio would still be losing in a one on one poll in Florida.

Clinton +3% in FL may be accurate, but there is ZERO CHANCE she is within 3% in TX.
North and central TX will vote the same as in 2012.
The state Romney carried by 1.26 mil. votes and 15.8%.

Yeah, I really don't have much to add beyond what Snowguy, afleitch, David, etc. have already said.

Tony, I've known you for a while here so I am familiar with your contempt towards the issue of SSM in general.  Please don't take this personally, because I'm not out here to demean or condemn you, but I do believe it's possible you have certain mild homophobic tendencies you might be trying to suppress.  You are an outspoken feminist, I think you would agree, so it is rather curious that you don't incorporate some elements of intersectionality in your postings, at least as far as this issue is concerned.

And, I do think that "privilege" plays something of a role here.  (FTR I generally despise that term because of the connotation of 'collective guilt' it carries and because I think it totally mischaracterizes the root causes of inequality, but that's a topic for another thread.)  If you are not someone from a group that society marginalizes, looks down upon, tries to cast away, or outright denies certain things to them or tells them to 'settle' for lesser substitutes of what other people enjoy, then it's easy to minimize these issues because you are not directly affected by them.

I don't think that people like TJ can or should be forced to change their outlook on this issue because of their sincerely-held religious beliefs (none of which I will try to apologize for... and child abuse is a whole different matter, obviously), but fortunately society is becoming more accepting and someday these conversations will no longer be necessary.

But until that happens, it's best that we work for both social and economic equality, and understand that this can't be achieved simply by nationalizing the private sector and making everything free.  That's why BLM works so hard for social change: free education won't end racial profiling or systematic racism in the workforce.  The same goes for LGBT equality, which goes beyond marriage benefits.

Striped maps are theoretically fine, but they leave too much unclear

President Barack Obama is endorsing 30 more House candidates Monday, expanding his effort to use his rising popularity to help Democrats looking to flip or hold swing districts across the country — and crush them under the association with Donald Trump.

Obama’s already taped ads and robocalls for several candidates, and more is expected in the final two weeks until Election Day.

Democrats remain skeptical at best that there’s any chance of winning the majority, but they’re hoping to build back from their historic low following the 2014 midterms. In the process, they want to squeeze House Republicans — including Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) — by slashing their lead and forcing them into the tricky politics of dealing with an empowered Freedom Caucus.

The endorsements “make the case to voters that Democrats will put people first and make real progress for our country, while Republicans will continue to put party over country by supporting Donald Trump as their standard-bearer,” said Kelly Ward, executive director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee on Sunday evening.


List of endorsements:

CA-7 Rep. Ami Bera
CA-10 Michael Eggman
CA-24 Salud Carbajal
CA-49 Doug Applegate
CO-6 Morgan Carroll
FL-7 Stephanie Murphy
FL-10 Val Demings
FL-26 Joe Garcia
IA-1 Monica Vernon
IA-3 Jim Mowrer
IL-17 Rep. Cheri Bustos
KS-3 Jay Sidie
ME-2 Emily Cain
MI-8 Suzanna Shkreli
MN-2 Angie Craig
NE-2 Rep. Brad Ashford
NH-1 Carol-Shea Porter
NH-2 Rep. Annie Kuster
NJ-5 Josh Gottheimer
NV-3 Jacky Rosen
NV-4 Ruben Kihuen
NY-3 Tom Suozzi
NY-18 Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney
NY-19 Zephyr Teachout
NY-24 Collen Deacon
PA-8 Steve Santarsiero
PA-16 Christina Hartman
VA-5 Jane Dittmar
VA-10 LuAnn Bennett
