Since this seems in the realm of possibility now.

I think it's only a matter of time before he runs. His Facebook data empire alone would be extremely valuable in a national election.

Maher's pretty awful, but MacFarlane is atrocious.

No, if anything they tend to make too many jokes right at what should be serious moments. It's really irritating.

Washington:



Walla Walla, Grays Harbor, Cowlitz, and Chelan were the ones I had the most trouble categorizing.

That map really doesn't feel right to me... Island, Walla Walla, Lewis, Kitsap, maybe Chelan... Whitman's territory is very rural but it's population is very mini-metro (68% in Pullman). I just don't think I really buy this metric we're using, and I don't know if the county level is the proper level of aggregation to be looking at this anyway.

Even if Mormons became hard D, these states wouldn't flip.

Kasich's best hope is probably to go third party in a Trump vs Zuckerberg race.

The initial losers rarely win in these re-match elections.

WSB-Landmark poll:

Handel 49%
Ossoff 47%

Actually worse for Ossoff: 49.1-46.5. Landmark was most accurate pollster in first round, too.

Decimal points are usually irrelevant.

Point is, if you round based on the raw margin, it's a 3 point lead whereas if you round based on what heatcharger posted, it's a 2 point lead.

Can't think of anything positive about it, other than defunding PP for a year.

All evidence points to the trends of 2016 at least partially carrying over. This seat is at least a toss up at this point.

The issue with Mission/Mission Hills in Johnson County, KS has been corrected.

It's gotten progressively worse every season.  Sad.  I was a big fan.  Maybe It will improve.  We can only hope.

Season 4 was a big improvement over Season 3.

Even in an internal Ossoff hasn't gained a single point since the primary...

Can you say impeachment

You can't get impeached for pushing for a constitutional amendment...

If Trump had any balls, he'd veto this. The GOP gets almost nothing based on that article.

No, despite what some on this site seem to think.
149  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: In your opinion, can a Christian believe in universal salvation? on: April 27, 2017, 07:43:52 pm
None of my business of course, but I'm convinced that belief in it is the fundamental requirement for Christianity to be morally sound. I just can't reconcile any other view with my idea of good and evil. Even the free will argument doesn't really make any sense to me.

Why should God force salvation on someone who knowingly rejects it?

2. after death, either some people don't love God so God's light seems to "burn" them while the same light brings bliss to others...

This is essentially the Eastern Orthodox belief regarding the nature of Hell. In essence, the only difference between Hell and purgatory is that one is permanent and the other temporary.

Quote
===> but in either case, the individual can choose to learn to love God and enter "heaven," and with eternity this is inevitable for everyone

A couple of issues: First, the only way this can even work is if we assume temporal causality and the nature of human choice extends outside our plane of existence, as it were. I'm not sure that's really consistent with traditional Christian thought; generally, our decisions are thought to more or less "set" into place at the time of death.

Second, God torturing people into submitting to and "loving" Him might be even worse and more malevolent than eternal separation/other theories of Hell; also, this seems to contradict so many other points regarding free will and the point of Jesus and faith that I'm not even sure where to begin. If God will just torture everyone or overpower them into loving Him in the end, what's the point in everything else He's done? What's the point in free will? What's the point in belief? What's the point in Jesus's death? Can such a God really be called just? Such an outcome seems to strip away any sense of responsibility for one's actions... I just can't see it.

Andy Katz too now.  And, Stephen A. Smith is still there.  Stick to sports, ESPN- not politics!

The conservative fantasy that millions of people are turning off ESPN because they occasionally mention Colin Kaepernick or whatever is ludicrous. ESPN is suffering because of cord-cutting, nothing else.

Actually...
