101  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: How often do you pray? (Christians) on: May 30, 2017, 02:22:49 pm
Formally once a day, "informally" or extemporaneously whenever I feel it's appropriate.

Same, although I find the Orthodox idea of "unceasing prayer" appealing.

Pretty much the only The Who song I can tolerate.

A Mormon under age 35. Probably voted Obama in 08 and Romney in 12, if eligible.

They're open local races. Of course they're going to be closer. Comps to Clinton are misguided at their core.

Fellow forum lefties pls stop fighting amongst yourselves and become hardcore misanthropes like me.  Realize that most Americans are terrible

It's hard to not see it that way at times. I wonder if the national cultural has really shifted that far from the one that fostered:

1) Japanese-American Internment Camps
2) Trail of Tears
3) Annihilation of Native Americans
4) Colonization and depreciation of territories and citizens therein
5) 9/11 Response
6) Overall regime change
7) Preying on those who need the most

The list can go on and on. There is a serious rot. I was raised Christian, and my parents pretty much taught me the polar opposite of all of that (and they were conservative by PR standards).

I was also raised Christian, still am.  Thought about becoming a pastor.  It took me to realize that I'm a terrible Christian as well as a terrible person in general to see that it's not the job for me.  But if any country needs meaningful spiritual revival, it's this one, and American Christianity needs to be taken back from the idolaters and the hypocrites.

Every Christian is a terrible Christian.  That's why salvation is by faith alone.  Tongue

bruh, faith is itself a work. salvation is by grace.

Only 1980 of that group.

I can't see a Zuckerberg run being good for Facebook's business prospects.

More from the west coming in. Quist is doing better there. Projected margin now at ~5 points.

Gianforte still on pace for a ~7 point win.

Gianforte's hitting his targets to win by ~7, but it's early.
112  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Centrist "United Utah Party" founded on: May 22, 2017, 09:40:15 pm
I'd vote for them.
113  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Students walk out of Pence speech on: May 22, 2017, 09:39:43 pm
Wish the Vatican would crack down on these fake-Catholic Jesuit schools that tolerate such open disdain for Catholic teachings.

115  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Which of these states will be the first to break their Republican streak? on: May 21, 2017, 11:12:40 pm
The democratic swing in Utah would have been significantly more if Bernie Sanders was the nominee instead of Hillary.

Also McMullin pulled a lot of previous Obama 08 voters and a lot of former Matheson and current McAdams voters.

The Utah swing was Trump related but I could see Utah becoming more purplish as time goes on.  Utah is very Republican due to LDS tribal voting but less conservative than it appears.

Utah gives driver's licenses to illegal immigrants and subsidizes housing for the homeless, very odd for such a deep red state.

It's not weird at all if you understand Mormons.
116  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYT: Trump Asked Comey to End Flynn Investigation on: May 16, 2017, 08:27:22 pm
I'm about ready for the 25th to be invoked.
117  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Gary Johnson and the rust belt on: May 16, 2017, 07:59:00 pm
Johnson was also the only third party candidate on the ballot in GA and IN (and OK).

119  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump revealed classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador on: May 15, 2017, 05:14:42 pm
There's nothing inherently wrong with sharing classified info with allied nations (which we are with regard to ISIS). Really depends on what it was... Certainly has the potentially to be a knock out blow, but it could be nothing as well.

You people really don't read the rest of the forum, do you?

I had no idea Bremerton was such an artsy place.
122  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: Idaho and Wyoming on: May 12, 2017, 11:25:08 am
Anyway the only way I could see this happening is if so many Democratic-leaning people move into Idaho and Wyoming that the composition of the state changes. The current population of those two states is never going to vote Democratic.

Dems aren't moving to Wyoming any time soon. Maybe to Boise, but it would require a really large and sustained movement to have much effect.

CDA has nicely shed its AB/militia rep, though. Really charming town, actually

I greatly prefer Sandpoint to CDA, which is sketch outside of downtown.
