  1. It's definitely horrifying to see what might the most left wing member of our 435 seat house have views that would be considered moderate in most of the developed world. But let's not get off topic and move away from her craziest position... Believing in climate change. She sounds like my dumbass doctor. He tells me that if I don't quit smoking soon I won't live to see 60. Yet I've been smoking for years, and haven't died a single time yet.
  2. Oh you guys love that buzzword don't you
  3. Yes if the Dems learned anything from 2016, it's to just ignore the people that excite your base and make sure to lead with moderate and boring politicians.
  4. So you're telling me that The Bronx elected an uber Liberal to Congress... And she believes in widely accepted climate science. *gasp*

    Macedonia name change deal

    As an outsider with admittedly only a little bit of basic knowledge of the situation, this seems like one of the pettiest international conflicts in modern history

    Well if you look at the history of minorities, women, and gay people in this country, you'll find that that's often not the case

    LA teacher strike

    Yup, the lack of and misuse of education funding is only a small part. It's the small fraction of illegals in schools that are to blame. It's not like growing class sizes isn't an issue in school districts all across the country

    Yeah, I'm sure illegal immigrants are the only issue here.

    I'm not sure what we want to call, stopping a girl in the middle of a busy street and creepily hitting on her. Maybe we'll just call it "being a douche". 90% of political correctness is good, the general goal of the PC movement is to get people to be nicer to each other. Yet for someone reason there's this massive push back against that.

    It's not all men, it's pointing out an issue that tends to happen among men and is still sadly viewed as acceptable by many in society. See this thread

    I think the ad is cheesy and a bit of a lame attempt to earn some kudos and clicks on YouTube. That said when you have numerous people outraged over an ad that has an anti assault and anti sexual harassment message, you do start to realize that there's a reason for the "Liberal PC Bullshit".

    I think it's more about cat calling, and the fact that most women don't want to be hit on by strangers when they're walking down the street.

    So are you cool with assault or sexual harassment?

    Is your complaint specifically directed towards the anti assault or anti sexual harassment parts of the video? I'm just curious which sociopathic value you want kids today to cling to?
  15. I wouldn't rule out Bernie. There's a solid chunk of the base that will support the second he jumps in, and that could be enough to jump out to a big lead if enough candidates split the rest of the vote. He only ran against one candidate last time, this time he'll run against several and he's already built up quite a bit of name recognition since
  16. That's fair. I hope I didn't come off as critical, as much as I dislike his views, this place wouldn't be the same without Blues. I was just curious what your approach was
  17. WyomingCoog did it back in the day, and I've seen Joe do it as well, though with him, he might just be trying to be edgy. I'm not sure if he's serious. Out of curiosity, how far do you let people go on this board? To be clear I'm not asking you to ban anyone, or trying to sound critical (I'm actually a big fan of how you run this board). This is legitimate curiosity. Saying women shouldn't be allowed to vote is pretty damn hateful. Would you allow posters to say the same about minorities?
  18. I've seen 3 people advocate it (though in fairness 1 may have been joking, I'm not really sure). I mostly do roll my eyes and ignore blues, but I'm just using him as an example to illustrate something that I find problematic. I often see people get up in arms over "PC culture" (which is just generally people trying to make the world a friendlier place), yet just shrug off blatantly hateful comments like "women can't be trusted to vote" by one of this boards proudest posters. There is a lot of racist and sexist views out there, and it's not just on the fringes (look at who is president). Yet when it's called out, it's just dismissed as Liberals playing the race or gender card.
  19. It's really good to see the hot button issue of women's suffrage getting discussed here, but sexism totally isn't a problem in this country. I'm curious to see if some right wing posters have the same vitriolic response to blue's stance, as they would have to a Liberal poster claiming that we should have stricter gun laws or government run healthcare.
  20. There's a poster on this board who doesn't think women should be allowed vote, yet will claim you're an idiot if you call him sexist
  21. No, just the ones who make racist and misogynist comments. It's similar to Obama. If you disagree with Obamacare, his foreign policy, or his tax policy, then that doesn't make you a racist. However if you think he's an unpatriotic Kenyan Mulsim, who's hell bent on bringing Sharia Law to the United States, then yeah you probably are going to be called out for racism. You see my point? This is the state of many right wingers in this country. They're more worried about people being called racist than actual racism itself. You have an African-American woman who's getting ready to run for president, but your main concern is not that she'll face sexist or racist attacks, it's that people might be angry about those sexist or racist attacks.
  22. But we'll keep pretending that racism among the American electorate is some crazy Liberal fallacy, while we ignore the man currently in the oval office
  23. Well are people going to accuse her of being a secret Kenyan Muslim?
  24. I doubt she'd win the primary, but anyone ruling out the entire Democratic party because our candidates are "too extreme" seems to be forgetting that we're just 2 years removed from electing a reality tv host who's main political platforms were building a wall, banning all Muslims, and being a birther.
  25. Personally speaking, that legislation would have probably been good for me. My smoking greatly increased when I turned 18, there was a gas station right next to my work that sold cigarettes, and smoking was a hell of a way to pass the time on slow days. It's a habit that took me several years to kick (vaping helped with that). Ultimately I agree though. People should have a right to pick their own vices and are responsible for the consequences of those vices. 18 is a fine age to give them that right. I think it's stupid to have some things be legal at 18 and some things be legal at 21. A 19 year old is either an adult, or he isn't. There shouldn't be an in between. It's a dumb that a 19 year old can be charged as an adult for being a minor in possession of alcohol.
