No contest.
127  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYM: Conservative Radio Host Hugh Hewitt in Talks for MSNBC Show, Sources Say on: April 29, 2017, 07:22:17 pm
Name one thing Hugh Hewitt has ever said that you can remember. Go.

"Seriously but not literally."
128  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What is the first election night you remember? on: April 27, 2017, 08:52:03 pm
2004 was the first election I actually cared about and knew the importance of.

I still remember going to bed that night after 1 AM so disappointed.

Nothing like the day of numbness after election night 2016 though.

I find it interesting that almost none of them actually live in GA06 either.

No you don't.
130  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What current democratic party plank is most "unpopular" with Asian voters? on: April 18, 2017, 03:06:14 pm
South Asians and Southeast Asians are definitely included in "Asian" in American political parlance.

Fine, I'll be more blunt. I mean "yellow" Asians.
131  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What current democratic party plank is most "unpopular" with Asian voters? on: April 18, 2017, 12:53:32 pm
Treating Chinese, Indians, Filipinos, and Arabs as one demographic is so laughable.

Colloquially speaking "Asian" in American political parlance means East Asian. Not Pacific Islander, Indian, or Middle Eastern.
132  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Tax Reform Effort Doomed to Failure on: April 18, 2017, 12:51:34 pm
This is a shame because I align with the Republican Party on tax reform. I think taxes should be flatter, simpler, and fairer.

Taxes should be vague, vague, and vaguer.
133  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Why do people (still) like Hillary Clinton? on: April 18, 2017, 12:24:41 pm
She's the most accomplished female politician in America, almost unquestionably. She's been fighting for civil rights and women's rights for decades. I think her time is done, but she's an admirable person in terms of what she's accomplished.
134  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: South Korean military reporting NK tried to launch a missile and it failed on: April 15, 2017, 09:21:45 pm
I think the idea that they were testing a submarine launched missile is the big takeaway. In theory if they fully developed SLBM technology they could retain a "Second Strike" capability in the case of a nuclear conflict.

The thing is they intended for the test to be a success, but even though it failed the idea is they are still working for SLBM capability, which could be an even bigger game-changer than ICBMs.
135  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Cernovich threatens to drop "motherlode" if Bannon is dropped on: April 14, 2017, 07:36:52 pm
This guy helped invent Pizzagate and pushed other conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton last year.  As much as I'd like to believe otherwise, he's got nothing on anyone.
136  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Julian Assange--clarification on: April 14, 2017, 07:35:55 pm
Don't defend rapists.

Is there any evidence that he actually did anything? Also isn't one of the allegations some silliness about lying about using a condom?
137  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: 'Concrete evidence of collusion between Trump team and Russia' handed over on: April 14, 2017, 07:25:24 pm
So did this turn out be nothing or what?
138  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Julian Assange--clarification on: April 13, 2017, 08:18:05 pm
Technical charges? You mean he isn't being accused of legitimate rape? You know, the kind you can't get pregnant from?

Don't be a 5 year old.
139  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Could US destroy NKorean artillery pointed as Seoul with a pre-emptive strike? on: April 13, 2017, 07:22:52 pm
No, probably not. At least not without extensively using tactical nuclear weapons.
140  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Julian Assange--clarification on: April 13, 2017, 07:05:18 pm
To be fair, the charges are highly technical and kinda obviously cooked up.

People seem to forget that the Russians aren't the only ones who play the bullsh**t game.
141  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Cernovich: McMaster pushes for 150,000 US soldiers on Syrian ground on: April 13, 2017, 07:02:44 pm

 

Everything you know is a conspiracy by aliens from Pluto. PROVE ME WRONG!!!11! WITH PROOF!1!!!!

Until you can PROVE me wrong you have to think it's true.
142  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Trump Threatens Coverage Of Millions If Democrats Won’t Negotiate On ACA Repeal on: April 13, 2017, 05:14:58 pm
He's all talk. But if he actually does purposely implode obamacare, dems might even win back the senate.
143  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: California looking to move primary up to 3rd after IA/NH. on: April 12, 2017, 12:02:14 pm
I don't understand why some here don't see that having large, expensive states go early just loads the game in favor of the front-runner/establishment favorite or the favorite son/daughter.

The Iowa/New Hampshire/Nevada/South Carolina system is just fine. The main reform I would make is to abolish caucuses and just have primaries for every state.
144  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: The Surdyk's liquor store controversy on: April 09, 2017, 05:48:10 pm
Just the fine is okay.
145  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: German cabinet agrees to fine social media over hate speech on: April 08, 2017, 09:19:19 pm
Germany continues to over-correct from WWII.
146  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Trump bomb Assad? on: April 06, 2017, 08:02:34 pm
Honestly this will probably only be a very limited strike against specific targets, ideally where there is no confirmed actual Russian personnel presence. Kinda like the Israeli strikes.
147  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Will Trump bomb Assad? on: April 06, 2017, 07:45:55 pm
I see you haven't stopped stealing "jokes" from Hillary Clinton's twitter.

And you haven't stopped stealing "opinions" from Breitbart.
148  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Obamacare vs Single-Payer Health Care on: April 06, 2017, 05:54:06 pm
Neither are steps in the right direction. The U.S. government already spends one of the highest per capita figures on healthcare in the world. There is no point in going even higher. Ted Cruz's and Rand Paul's ideas are definitely steps in the right direction in fixing the monstrosity that is American healthcare, as they reduce government mandates and spending and make those using healthcare more responsible for paying for it. Isn't this obvious?

Yeah, that's just it. Single-payer would save money.
149  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Is war now imminent? on: April 05, 2017, 06:52:28 pm
Can we please not clog up this thread with meaningless pedantry.

We get it, technically the US has been at war for a long time. Stop acting like drone strikes and spec-ops deployments are "just like" being in a major shooting war with North Korea.
150  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The apology from Hillary on: April 05, 2017, 03:31:08 pm
How does one receive 'answers to the debate'?
Apparently CNN snuck her the questions on one their debates.

Citation?
