All bow to ObamaCare, our newest entitlement program, now basically safe forever.

As long as Republicans have presidency and Congress, it's not safe. We must stay vigilant.

As today is the reconciliation deadline and the Senate isn't even in session, I request that this thread be locked and unstickied. TrumpCare is dead.

Until Trump gives up, this is still a major topic that needs to be open and stickied.

Since Congress isn't going to be able to repeal the ACA, Mitt Romney would be a good choice to fill the position.

Note - I'm not predicting this, but appointing someone who believes in health care reform makes a lot more sense than appointing someone who doesn't.

It's quarter to or quarter after.  7:45am is how I do it.

I thought you Americans said "quarter of eight" instead of "quarter to eight"?

That didn't look write when I read it, but I just said it out loud, and "quarter of eight" is said some here. (Mississippi, not Alaska)

83  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Is it possible to be a Christian, Jew, or Muslim and be pro-choice? on: September 27, 2017, 10:26:06 am
Of course. It's not possible to be a Catholic or some Protestant denominations and such though.

This statement is in direct opposition to ones you've made about pro-choice Catholics in the past. Why the flip-flop?

Did I? Where?

I just can't comprehend how someone can be both a serious Catholic and pro-choice. That's like being someone in Scotland who's an SNP activist and campaigner who then in 2014 campaigned for the anti-independence side of the referendum.

I can't quote it because it's on the 2012 board,  but here: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=161488.msg3462615#msg3462615

Your 2012 position is much more sensible. Do you really think Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, John Kerry, Tim Kaine, Patty Murray, Kirsten Gillibrand, Catherine Cortes Mastro, Raul Grijalva, the Castro brothers, Ed Markey, Dennis Kucinich, Martin O'Malley, etc., etc., etc., are all a bunch of frauds?

Not to mention that the Catholic position on abortion is the same as most other Christian denominations, so people like Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Sheldon Whitehouse, Hillary Clinton, etc., would have to be frauds too.
84  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Alabama Megathread: Jones (D) v. Moore (R) on Dec. 12 on: September 26, 2017, 09:43:37 pm
You just gotta love Doug Jones! One of the first quality candidates of ours in a long time there. What a gentleman! Come on guys, Moore is gonna win, but let's not just sit back and take it.

Jones will lose by 20 points

Depends on whether Moore puts his foot in his mouth so bad that he blows it like Akin and Murdock. (And given that it's Alabama, would have to be worse than either of those.) I don't think that's much that Jones can do other than hope Moore somehow epic fails.
85  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: TN-SEN: Corker retiring on: September 26, 2017, 08:26:46 pm
Travis has hired a campaign finance lawyer

He'd almost certainly run as a right-leaning Indy no?

Left-leaning Indy who hates Political Correctness and SJWs.

IF the Democrats pull a 2014 Kansas and don't run a candidate ... he could have a chance.

He's turned into a really obnoxious SJW over the years.  HP.
So shameful to see progressives throw around "Social Justice Warrior" like it's an insult. This stuff does actually matter to people. I'm sure folks from many quarters would see the person you've become and call you a sad freak. That's not okay, and the people who'd be on your side are the ones you deride as "SJWs." Disappointing.

I have a question for you, Hagrid; which person, broadly speaking, based off of the following traits, generally has a harder time living in the US?:
1) A muslim living in a major metropolitan area (say, NYC) making six figures
2) A straight white male making $25,000/yr in East Kentucky

What kind of stupid question is that? No one is arguing that it's #1.

Compare #2 to a minority in a similar economic situation and it's #3 every time. If that makes me a SJW so be it.

It is very easy to determine why Hillary lost. Consider whatever direction you think the Democratic Party should go; Hillary lost because she was insufficiently that.
91  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump: NFL should fire players who kneel during anthem on: September 25, 2017, 07:51:05 pm
The Chicago Bears, a classy organization, stood shoulder to shoulder today for the anthem.  The Pittsburgh Steelers should be forced to forfeit the game for their actions.  Fortunately, karma is in Soldier Field today, and its not in the Steeler's favor.

Teams that linked arms (see: Bears) were showing unity in a response to Trump's attempt to divide. Owners of several teams joined them. It was a political statement.

Yes.  I didn't say otherwise.  It was a nice classy response. They stood.

So you don't care that the locking arms is the same gesture as kneeling, just PC-ified for foaming-at-the-mouth conservaflakes? It's just the literal act of kneeling that bothers you, not the protest itself?
92  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What is your favorite Trump quote? on: September 25, 2017, 07:48:54 pm
I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th.
93  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trumpcare Megathread: Paul, Collins, McCain likely opposed to G-C on: September 25, 2017, 04:39:55 pm
It's odd that more senators haven't publicly wavered on GC, given that McConnell punished Murkowski, Paul, and McCain for not toeing the line by. . . modifying the bill to grant their states pork.
Yeah, I sure wish my senators would threaten to vote no to get some special extras

Great solidarity for our National Anthem and for our Country. Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!

11:20 AM - 24 Sep 2017

Is he being coy or he is really so dense that he doesn't understand that the locking of arms is the same protest, but a little tamer so that conservatives won't foam at the mouth at it?

I'm relieved to say it was good. Haven't watched part 2 online yet, but I will soon.

Quick question, is this show in the Abrams timeline?

No, thankfully. Prime timeline.

It's going to be about 15 minutes late starting due to football running over.
99  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump: NFL should fire players who kneel during anthem on: September 24, 2017, 11:35:01 am
One thing everyone's forgetting in all of this is that Trump has had a grudge against the NFL for decades, back to the USFL debacle and how they wouldn't let his New Jersey Generals be an expansion team into the NFL.

In his mind, he's getting the last laugh if he tanks the NFL ratings.
100  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump: NFL should fire players who kneel during anthem on: September 23, 2017, 09:09:17 pm
I think this is the best compromise


If you don't want to stand for the national anthem ,that's ok but you have to stay in the locker room during the anthem .

In college football, at least in games I've been to, they do the national anthem before the teams run out onto the field. The NFL could do that and this would never be an issue again.
