  1. Masculinity

    [mod hat] Please stick to the topic and lay off the personal stuff. Thanks.   [/mod hat]
  2. LBGTQ - 4 out of 5 cats prefer lesbians

    Just hold two performances: One for public, and one for select group(s). Most greek societies do this all the time. Their Spring socials are closed to non-members, for instance.
  3. US Politics: We're serving Flint water mmmmm.

    Say it ain't so!!! I am going to call the Shivao family and all the women whose access to abortion are restricted by legislative fiats know!
  4. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    I honestly don't have a problem with what Albright said. Serisouly. I know why it causes so much hurt feelings. There's a small current of Bernie supporters who resent being assumed they should support Clinton because they're women. I think this is more about that resentment than anything damning that Albright said.
  5. Oh ok. I see how it is. You'll flirt with "everyone," meaning you're ruling out all root vegetables. What do you have against carrots and daikons? You know what? I don't even want to know.
  6. U.S. Election - Onward to New Hampshire

    That's the bare minimum a politician needs to run as GOP - anti-union, anti-abortion, pro-gun. Bonus if you're anti-gay. You're not going to find a viable GOP candidate who will deviate from those values.
  7. Flat Earth theory gaining converts???

    And why the elephants need to stand on turtles for some extra sturdy support.

    Hell hath no fury like a Carson scorned.
  9. Flat Earth theory gaining converts???

    The answer is perfectly easy.    
  10. US Election Thread - Is this heaven? No, it's Iowa

    I remember those times. My take is this: When we no longer had a POTUS whose party platform included specific planks of denying the validity of your marriage and your relationship, it suddenly made things seem possible that would otherwise be not possible. When the WH is occupied by a party that didn't shun and marginalize its own LBG (I hesitate to add T here because I don't think the GOP are even aware of the T issues) members, you start to believe that we can make some headway on a national level.

    You mean like the 40+ times when the Republicans tried to repeal the PPACA? Yeah, that happened such a loooooong time ago.

    I don't think that things can never change. Things can, for the better (and for the worse). But I think it is a bit of putting the cart in front of the horse, to envision a Sanders (or Warren) presidency spear-heading this change. While it never hurts to have a charismatic and popular leader at the front of your movement (see MLK Jr), I don't think that's the key to bringing about those changes we probably agree on as required. Electoral reform, districting reform, and safe-guarding voting rights, etc., these will not happen because we have Sanders at the lead pushing for it, but rather, they will succeed if we can manage a sustained and directed effort towards these things, and then, at the end, a Sanders-like president may emerge.

    Sanders is beholden to big money. Check his donor's list. It's all the major unions. I am a proud union member and I support unions. But that doesn't take them out of the big money league. We are dwarved now by dark money and super-PACs, but there's still a lot of muscle left, particularly in terms of mobilizing members to turn out to vote. Also, wait for Sanders to win the nomination, and check his donation sources again. He will not remain pure as driven snow for long. He can't afford to. This talk of purity in money is exactly the same bullshit that anti-establishment tea party people try to sell you, and the common schtick of the dimestore huskters like Cruz. So yeah, the whole argument that Sanders is, and will be, less beholden to big monies is fantastically unconvincing to me.   As for Clinton's battle-harden status, I will point you to the GOP smear campaign against her that started when Bill Clinton appointed her to lead the welfare reform effort, all through White Water, then resumed with Benghazi, and now continuing through email leaks. That's the type of scrutiny and bullshit she has lived through, and continues to live through. Sanders haven't even gotten a scratch yet from the GOP dirt apparatus. Someone earlier made the point that Kerry, with a purple heart award, was successfully painted as a coward. I'd also thrown in the example of Max Cleland, who lost 3 limbs in a war only to be portrayed as a terrorist-sympathizer. You put a self-avowed socialist up on the stage, and even Reeter Skeeter can watch Netflix and chill while till collecting a paycheck.
