  1. The pendulum always swings back. The method is the only mystery. Enjoy overinflated welfare states and attacks on the constitution while it lasts
  2. How exactly? They didn't do anything that wasn't done before with Garland. And the Kavanaugh circus was a national disgrace
  3. He replies in crayon, don't expect much from him
  4. I still need to be won over on other things but I respect her the most out of the opposition field
  5. Granted the reason we go to the non sports threads is partially so we can bitch and fight each other over politics. However, I have a proposal. Maybe we can all agree to select a day in the future where we go a legitimate full 24 hours without one new thread or one new post related to politics. We can talk about food, science, history, anything....anything at all.....just not politics. It will be a toxin cleanse for our mind and our soul. What say you?
  6. I'll rephrase it, they purchase the discount version of a good idea and the good idea gets a bad name for it
  7. I'm not in favor of tariffs in general, but IF....IF they lead to better trade deals down the road that save costs in the long run, then I'll be tolerant of them temporarily.
  8. Ewwwwww. Walmart is where good ideas(and retirees) go to die
  9. You are Insufferable and indignant to the point of lunacy sometimes. Part of the "it's always been like this" crowd huh
  10. While you guys are at Costco, do you mind picking up some bulk buttwipe?
  11. I'll start giving polls more attention a year from now
  12. To a point, yes. If consumers go broke buying those goods, then it makes no sense. If the price increases are moderate at most then sure.
  13. So we're not allowed to disagree?
  14. Back in the last century it didn't matter what letter was next to your name, many opposite aisle representatives and senators were good friends and tried to work together for the most part. Now look at it, not only is Congress 2 houses divided, but it has spilled into the public consciousness. Look at our conversations on the MWC board. Now, while I will never compromise my beliefs for anything, I would be willing to compromise in an action to achieve some sort of positive result. Personally I'd be fir an entire legislative termination and to hold a mass and sweeping new election for both houses
  15. Not what I said. Nevada is getting California, just not the red California. Don't pretend like you don't know or pretend it isn't true. The transplant population here has turned the state light blue
  16. WSJ, CSM, WJ, USA Today, CNN, NYT, and MSNBC(the last few to gather what the other side of the spectrum is saying), subreddits, YouTube personalities that usually point me to the multitude of actual articles of specific subjects, local TV news
  17. We have something similar. I'm glad you guys are getting mostly sane ones. Unfortunately down here we're not so lucky. The "keep Reno weird" people and the social program crutch crowd have established themselves here mostly from the bay area
  18. I disagree with the intial premise, that conservatives voted this way purely to be a proactive anti liberal aggressor. This last election 63 million or so voted a certain way. Have all 63 million lost their minds? No. Why did they vote that way. One reason is it was a reactive action stemming from the few decades of building establishment authoritarianism and a reactive action against the then emerging politically militant left. More and more people felt one of two ways or both. They either felt that Trump brought the hammer we finally needed to start demolishing the imprisoning establishment that was built, or they felt that they were beginning to be specifically targeted for their beliefs and needed to draw a line in the sand. And granted, there were some that voted for him because he had an R next to his name, such is the status quo on both sides. I have my own reasons why I voted for him. And I have my own beliefs. I call myself a traditional conservative but separate myself from the religious fanaticism that comes with that moniker. Although in this day and age my social and civics views are considered more liberatarian, while my foreign policy and national defense views are considered more conservative. Politicics are rarely black and white. People who vote on a singular issue or ignore the actual policies, actions, and results presented by an individual just because they don't like their personality......or those that vote specifically based on religious belief or those that vote specifically against religious belief.....these are examples of those that poison the voting booth. By turning their vote into a weapon if protest instead of a weapon of what's good for the nation
  19. Same in Nevada. Unfortunately many that flee end up changing the local culture to be identical to the place they came from
  20. Sorry, there is one more variable. The ever enlargement of the social welfare state turns voters more blue as well. Free stuff of the backs off others gets votes
  21. It is that simple. New influx of people change demographics every time. Look at Texas. Huge influx of west coasters, now it's purpling
  22. So it's all Trumps fault yet again? California ideology demographics have been shifting extreme left for a long time now. The metro areas dominate the political landscape there and a large majority of those metro areas grow darker and darker blue. I saw this coming years ago.
  23. I prefer del taco over liquid shits bell. The chicken soft tacos and the shredded beef burrito are my go to.
  24. You earned a hug. You know you want to
