  1. US Politics: Everyone's Manipulating Everyone

    Look how well Bernie Sanders did on the Democrats' side. Despite media collusion and near unanimous establishment support for Hillary, the Democrats were almost swept away by a populist movement, too.
  2. US Politics: Everyone's Manipulating Everyone

    No, they aren't. Personally, I think democrats are better off pushing for automatic registration, a voting holiday, early voting initiatives, etc, then fighting the ID laws, which are wildly popular.
  3. US Politics: Everyone's Manipulating Everyone

    Automatic registration and ID laws aren't mutually exclusive. I am in favor of everyone being automatically registered upon their 18th birthday.

    People who complain about the 'challenges' of obtaining ID cards by some individuals are really only criticizing the implementation process. There are means of providing an ID card to anyone facing a reasonable challenge by extending office hours, having an option to obtain a card by mail, offering a no-cost option, etc. Of course, those who oppose ID laws know that no amount of reasonable accommodation will encourage a certain unmotivated segment to obtain ID cards. And, since Democrats perceive that unmotivated segment as potential Democratic voters, the Democrats will fight tooth and nail over what is seen as common sense in many/most democracies.
  5. NFL Superbowl: Dont Waste My Overtime

    Tyree. That whole play was more improbable but Amendola was crazy concentration.
  6. NFL Superbowl: Dont Waste My Overtime

    It's more than a feel and simply reality.
  7. NFL Superbowl: Dont Waste My Overtime

    Agreed. Not sure how he interfered, but oh well. Brady is GOAT.
  8. NFL: The Politics of Superb Owls or Trumping the Fail-Cons

    4-3 with more taint than Saidin. Brady is GOTE not GOAT.

    The Choke is on...
  10. Democrats will wring their hands and moan about how ultra right wing Gorsuch is but they'll confirm him. Their best play is prevent Republicans from nuking the filibuster and hope they retake the Senate in 2018.
  11. Neil Gorsuch! Dem meltdown in 5...4...3...2...1
  12. Any last minute guesses on SCOTUS nominee? Dems are already vowing the filibuster any nominee that is not Merrick Garland. http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/senate-democrats-filibuster-supreme-court-pick-234368
  13. US Politics: Redefining National Security

    Eh, it would be a coup for any law firm to get her. Even before this action, she has tremendous credentials and authored a hugely important memo on individual accountability for corporate wrongdoing. Any law firm with a white collar practice would want her defending its clients.
  14. US Politics: Redefining National Security

    SCOTUS nominee possibly coming tomorrow. God help the poor soul who is about to feel the wrath of the mob. http://www.abc-7.com/story/34374356/white-house-supreme-court-choice-could-be-announced-monday

    China cannot call the debt because the bonds it holds are not put bonds. They are payable upon maturation.
