    Comics Phase Fourteen

    I'm planning on getting Marvel Unlimited. Anyone have any run recommendations?

    U.S. Politics: Moscow Mitch

    Do people honestly not realize that Joe Biden is famous for his gaffes?

    International Thread 3

    I don't know why we're talking about Iran all the sudden when we were talking about Russia invading South Korean airspace.

    The Korean War was definitely a shooting war with China.

    U.S. Politics: You Didn't Think It Would Be So Easy, Did You?

    Why would me responding to Zorral have anything to do with you? You are shockingly good at misreading things. No, you're reading comprehension is terrible. Jill Filipovic doesn't mention primary voters in that piece. Not once. Not ever. Never.

    U.S. Politics: You Didn't Think It Would Be So Easy, Did You?

    I never said that. I said that there aren't that many of them. Black women make up 6-7% of the electorate and 6-7% of the population. This is just a deeply bad misreading of things. The arguments in the op-ed are about being electable in the general presidential election of 2020. She makes the case that Biden doesn't look like the party by citing voting percentages rather than overall numbers which is just dumb.

    US Politics: Don't Panic - Organize

    You'll remember that my first comment was questioning whether the op-ed writer was stupid or just dishonest.

    US Politics: Don't Panic - Organize

    Because it was linked to in the op-ed that we were discussing.

    US Politics: Don't Panic - Organize

    It's from the CNN exit polls of the 2018 midterm elections that were linked in the editorial: Exit Polls. 35% of voters were white males. 39% of those males voted Democrat (13.65% of voters overall). 11% of voters were black. 90% of them voted Democrat (9.90% of the electorate), Overall 60% of voters who cast a ballot for Democrats were white. Black women may be great at voting for Democrats but there isn't that many of them.

    Any time I read something like this I have to ask myself; is the author stupid or just dishonest? In this case I think she's probably dishonest. She couldn't be so stupid as to read statistics that badly, she's being way to selective. White males cast as many votes for Democrats as black females and males did combined in the last election. Blacks cast the most votes for Democrats of any minority. Democrats biggest voting block is white women. Unless the argument is that only white women should be the nominee than this silly "doesn't look like the party" idea should be discarded.
  11. Bernie's set to be one of the Democratic front runners this election. I would not count his book sales out. Bernie has been in congress since 1991. Members of congress currently make $174,000. His wife is a woman who wears many hats, but for close to 10 years she was a college president while he was in congress. Bernie may not be 1% wise but he's certainly been very close to it throughout much of his congressional career. I suspect him and his wife have been diligent about investing, which is not something a tax return necessarily captures. Go here
  12. It is interesting that Bernie won't say he's not a member of the 1%. At an estimated 2 million net worth, he's not close to being 1%. Currently you need a little over 10 million to be in the 1%. Then again, considering the vagueness of his tax returns I think Bernie is worth far more than 2 million.

    Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot in the works

    Yeah, season 4 of Angel is the best season.

    U.S. Politics: Impoverished In Squalor

    Like Scot said, passport's expire after ten years. Also, the passport rules used to be much looser for parts of the Western hemisphere and only started to get stricter in the wake of 9/11. As it is there are still other documents that can get you into and out of Canada and Mexico from the USA. Passport rules for minors also tend to be much looser.
