This guy is the most boring sexter ever. No sense of eroticism whatsoever.

They look pretty risqué to me.

That's impossible.

What if they were to harp against "Southern backward racism" and whatnot and effectively did they were not welcome in the party? Would voters be more likely to switch sides or form a new party? What would the electoral consequences be, and how long would the GOP need to recover?

De Blasio gets involved on the right side of things... and is beat up for it:

JUNE 21, 2015
Mayor Bill de Blasio went to Washington Heights in Upper Manhattan on Sunday to talk about international relations. The topic could hardly have been closer to home for the neighborhood, the center of the Dominican community in New York City.

The government of the Dominican Republic has been criticized for threatening to deport undocumented migrant workers, most with roots in neighboring Haiti. In his remarks, the mayor joined the critics.

“It is clearly an illegal act, it is an immoral act, it is a racist act by the Dominican government,” he said to the dozens of people gathered at the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Education Center. “And it’s happening because these people are black,” he added.

In New York, many Dominican leaders have stood in solidarity with Haitian leaders. But if the mayor was expecting to be cheered, he found himself assailed by Dominicans who disagreed with him.


Demonstrators in Manhattan were at odds with Mr. de Blasio on the Dominican Republic’s deportation law on Sunday.
BRIAN HARKIN FOR THE NEW YORK TIMES
As Mr. de Blasio left the lectern, some audience members bickered between themselves, and as the mayor stepped into the soupy heat on Broadway and 165th Street he was surrounded by a handful of protesters.

“Bill de Blasio Makes Everything a Racial Matter,” read one of several signs.

The city is home to more than 400,000 Dominican natives and more than 100,000 Haitian natives, the mayor said, explaining the significance of the events occurring on the island to residents in New York.

What does "constitutional officials" mean? Are you and your deputy saying the same thing?

Stupid nothing point.

Bill Clinton was elected governor in 1978.  That was closer to the Little Rock Nine school desegregation crisis than we are to Bill Clinton's election as President.  Think about that.

Wow, was it that long ago?

3187  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Once more, gun control opponents... on: June 23, 2015, 11:29:51 am
Why should gun buyback programs be limited to inner cities?  For that matter, is there any evidence that they do anything other than give burglars a way to safely fence stolen guns?

I'd support them universally. What does the bolded mean?

Horrible decision. The fewer raisins there are, the better. Raisins are disgusting and should be banned.

Okay. Let's settle this. Every anti gun person here besides ag who is paranoid. What do you propose we do in terms of gun laws? At this point we are arguing in circles.

Off the top of my head.

Close the loopholes to make sure all non-antique guns are purchased with a background check.

Gun-buyback programs in inner-cities

Create new penalties and regulations on straw purchases.

Civil Liability for straw purchasers and/or improperly selling a gun used in a crime.

An excise tax on firearms to pay for gun-buybacks, community policing and other crime prevention programs.

Repeal DC v. Heller

All excellent proposals, though I don't know how you can repeal a court ruling.

I don't think the ruling that gun ownership is an individual right proscribes any of the above regulations and procedures.

Neither do I. I wasn't assuming these were reliant on that.

Life without parole in super max solitary is arguably even more cruel and unusual a punishment than simply killing the guy. The anti-death penalty people are the real savages in this case.

All the better.

I think you got the point Simfan.  Reverse it then.

Hopefully they will. But the rest are immediately doable and should be done.

Hillary, Bernie, and Ted Cruz are about the only ones smart enough to possibly be reptilians.

Bush is PBK.
3195  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Romney shows courage, Santorum cops out on: June 23, 2015, 10:21:44 am
The way most Republican contenders behave, they want to have the luxury of indulging the ideological purists at all costs, just to win votes.  These purists are so fanatic,  they prefer to lose elections than recognize, that holding the levers of power is where the real difference occurs.  Jeb Bush for example is a prime example of courage and guts by a mile. His position on emigration, Common core while not popular with the base, demonstrates gutsy principle over pandering.  It's the stuff which separates the men from the boy's. Bush has chutzpah on a par with Ronald Reagan.

Yes I too am worried about illegal emigration, people ought to be forced to stay here, even if it is in chains. I wonder if there is a word for that.

Me too. Let's keep the brains.

What is wrong with you? Chicago shall always be the Second City.

Bring back the sweeping annexation powers the City of Houston once enjoyed and we could get this accomplished with a few strokes of the pen.

Don't they still have these powers, but simply choose not to exercise them in fear of upsetting the municipal political balance?
