1  Forum Community / Forum Community / Are the "Bernie wing" and "Clinton wing" of the Democratic Party real things? on: Today at 07:50:36 am
No they are not. The party did not undergo a massive restructuring two years ago where every single member aligned themselves based on who they voted for in the primary. These terms are getting pretty annoying.

I do find someone that prolific in posting using "find employment" as a stock insult to be quite amusing.

Clinton and Sanders supporters are not "wings" of the party.

Yeah I am really sick of this dichotomy.

The only good thing I can say about him is that he opposed Prohibition.

Good read.
6  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: In which elections have you split the ballot? on: October 16, 2017, 08:09:12 pm
None. Unless you count local elections where I voted for joke candidates on my first or second preference (Minneapolis uses IRV), but those are Democrat vs. Democrat elections.

all of 'em I think....(normal/not a hack)

So.... http://electionresults.sos.state.mn.us/Results/PrecinctListResults/100?countyid=27&precincts=887080

Please tell me in which of those elections I should've voted Republican, considering that the legislative elections have only joke nominal opposition. One year the Republican candidate in my district literally had campaign expenditures of $0.00 (yes seriously. An official report.)

Am I the only clinton voter on this damn forum that doesn't want Trump impeached?
You trust Trump won't do something disastrous before he leaves office? The guys IQ is in the low teens, your giving him way too much credit.

If Trump's IQ were in the low teens, he'd be so developmentally disabled he wouldn't be able to even speak or preform any actions without assistance. Anything below 70 is considered mentally retarded.

Also as Nate Silver once pointed out, there's no real correlation between the PV and how many keys are true. He pointed out that Bush in 2004 had more keys than I believe Reagan in 1984.

Why was he banned?

See the post below yours. Not for that in particular but hordes of similar related activity.
11  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Allan Lichtman on: October 15, 2017, 10:48:58 pm
The test is bunk. It predicted a Trump popular vote victory, but Lichtman came up with all sorts of excuses to shoehorn certain keys to an answer away form that just because he was so sure Trump wouldn't win the popular vote, even though his standards contradicted what he said before for the keys.

Most of the keys are so subjective they can just be assigned after the fact to make sure it matches the outcome.

It varies state by state. In Minnesota all incorporated municipalities are called cities.

HP just for his sig alone (which he has all but admitted is intentionally obnoxious and annoying). I honestly don't care about anything else in regards to him.

Debating deleting this. Posting "opinion of" threads about banned posters is spam.

This is of course in reference to his recent AAD activity.
15  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / How would you vote in a Seth MacFarlane vs. Donald Trump election? on: October 15, 2017, 08:59:13 pm
I'd strongly support Seth.
16  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Gavin Newsom on: October 15, 2017, 08:57:56 pm
I really hope that there's a Democrat vs. Democrat runoff for California Governor so there's an option to vote for besides him. I'd only vote for him over a Republican (I'd also support if he ran for Senate against Feinstein but that's not looking likely.)

Also if you're going to include Ann Arbor, you might as well include Chicago too, since both are basically the same, expensive by the standards of the Midwest but NOTHING in comparison to the coastal cities people think of as expensive. Chicago is not in the same boat as NYC, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, DC, Seattle, etc. Not by a long shot.

Charleston, SC on the other hand actually is pretty expensive and known as one of the most expensive cities in the south (along with Savannah, GA.)

Glad to see my city on the list! Easily the top pick, though not the only one I voted for.

Also you don't want to live in Rochester, trust me. Unless you're highly skilled (and by that I mean have a medical license to work as a doctor or a boatload of specific IT certifications, not "have a college degree"), the only jobs you'll be able to get there is retail or restaurants. The economy of that place is unique in that it's incredibly skewed to certain highly skilled people, there's of course some jobs that have to exist everywhere that you can get there too, but also require specific qualifications (like accountants and teachers, etc.) If you're lucky you might be able to get something like a $15/hour simple data entry job for the Mayo Clinic or a law firm or something, but you can find those sort of jobs in any major city. No one ever moves there looking for a job, they only move there because they've already landed a job.

Evangelical Christianity is the mouthpiece of and ideological medium for the transmission of elitist controlled values and beliefs. It primarily serves to assuage natural human negative reactions to inhumane social conditions and organize people behind a policy agenda that serves particular interests. Critical thought is discouraged, while human capital and energy is directed towards bigotry, nationalism, rallying around capitalism, and directing your frustrations towards non-constructive actions, such as prayer. Meanwhile, megachurch pastors get filthy rich and right-wing special interests are promoted while also cultivating a uniform voting base that works against their own self-interest and focuses on distraction issues.

That Trump received such a large percentage of the Evangelical vote and such a warm welcome should be absolutely unsurprising.

This is a good post dude.
There was a gem here and there in it, but the broader point wins a place in this thread.

It of course commits the common fallacy of assuming that "Evangelical Christianity" is one large easily generalized entity, and kind of reminds me of the idiots on sites like DU and DailyKos who basically believe that virtually all or the vast majority of evangelical Christians believe in things like super-charismatic practices and worship, KJV-onlyism, Dominionism and prosperity theology, the truth is not only do the majority of evangelicals not believe in those things, you'd have a very difficult time finding any who believe in ALL of them.

Things that the post alludes to like prosperity theology and extreme mixing of nationalism in theology are quite fringe even by the standards of conservative evangelicals.

Is this anything more then feeling like your hipster christian church was badmouthed?

While it's not remotely close to anything he described, neither are most conservative evangelical churches. Not that they aren't terrible in their own ways of course.
