    Sticky: Re: The Chat Thread (Read OP)

    Iím doing alright. Just going to work and coming home. By the looks of it I am happier than I was when I left TWC, not that those two things are related :p

    I stopped by to grab some info from my...

    Sticky: Re: The Chat Thread (Read OP)

    I hope youíre fully recovered. I used to not think much of the flu as Iíd never gotten it. Then last year my wife got a flu like virus and wound up in the emergency room within 24 hours. She...

    Canít believe this thread is still going. Glad to see so many familiar faces.
  4. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    The GOP leadership was and is openly against Trump in every conceivable way, and look how that turned out. The level of butthurt among Sanders supporters is over 9000. Sanders didn't have the...
  5. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Uhhh.... guys....?



    Behold the power of ignorance and prejudice. Trump isn't Hitler; he's nowhere near that intelligent. But based on that article, he may as well be.
  6. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    @ Setekh: I didn't write the article, so I can't have made anything up. The most I could concede here is that the article is in fact meaningless, and simply regurgitates common knowledge that...
  7. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    Of course not. But when I quote the article, then comment on said quote, the only thing that can be disputed is my commentary; in this case, the "why" behind the quote. The quote is not my claim. ...
  8. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    I've made no claims, only commented on facts. I explicitly stated there is no connection and that the article attempts to establish one. As these are unassailable facts, you've attempted to change...
  9. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    @Setekh
    Either the article is an example of habitual political exploitation, or sheer stupidity repeated over and over to fill the news cycle. I bank on the former, but I could be wrong. It...
  10. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    I answered this, including direct quotes. You just don't like the answer. There is a difference.

    This coming from a guy who regards anything outside his desired frame of reference to be a "non...
  11. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    Um, yes, it does. You asked why I said the article is an example of the media/Left's MO, which is, never fail to exploit a good crisis to talk about your soapbox issues/blame America, even if said...
  12. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    Same issue as the anti-gun lobby, really; juxtaposing two separate issues or events and insinuating causation for purely political ends whilst claiming the moral high ground. Yes, social...
  13. Re: Terrorist shooting at LGBT nightclub in Orlando: 50 dead

    OK I'm very late to the party here, so forgive me if my perusal of the last 5 pages does not suffice in avoiding redundant topics. Having had time to digest the event and review some of the salient...
  14. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Erm, no, not at all. Once again, you're projecting a series of assumptions onto a discussion that didn't even involve you initially in a feeble attempt to dismiss what are in this case unassailable...
  15. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Well then it's a good thing I never said socialism=government run everything, isn't it? The virtual abolition of private property as a fundamental individual right, and the divvying up of property...
  16. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    The only strawman in play here is yours. I'm not even sure what you're talking about here. I've never claimed any "difference between US and Soviet roads." All I said was that the "90% tax" myth...
  17. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Tell me, do you have any other input besides talking points and a unique sense of humor? The Eisenhower tax rate myth was debunked long before Sanders picked it up. It ranks right up there with the...
  18. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    The video is pretty good in terms of a general summary. However, the analysis I posted earlier (which the guy actually referenced in the video) goes into much more depth and explains why just...

    Wow. Just wow. Roll the tape:

  20. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    See, when you try to insert yourself into the middle of discussion, your commentary adds nothing at all and winds up coming off as the self-satisfied demagoguery you ironically ascribe to me. But...
  21. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    I gotta say, it helps if you read:

    Sanders' plan raises the nominal tax rates of literally everyone, even many who currently pay no tax at all. The only wiggle room you could possibly have here...
  22. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Who is we? What? I feel like I'm missing the joke here, probably because I'm the punchline.,

    In any case, no one knows how to benefit me better than me. That's kind of the point, and reflects ...
  23. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    The earliest someone can receive social security is 62, except under specific circumstances. For someone in my situation, I am far too "rich" to receive any cash benefits from federal or state...
  24. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    That's only income tax. Every employed person will see bigger effective payroll tax hikes than we have in decades. For someone with similar income to me, the tax hikes would erase any residual wage...

    Some unusually sound advice for the GOP from Bill Maher


    Way to not read my post at all. You clearly don't understand or refuse to address the fundamental differences between the...
  26. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Lol, that very sentiment formed the basis of entire political parities and movements into the late 19th century. Today, the very same people who denounce "foreign goods," "cheap labor," and "free...
  27. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Looks like I'm late to the party, so, spoilered:

    It's quite simple. If the proverbial American "native" working class were ever to have held sway over the nation, its political or social...
  28. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Eh, I generally admire their enthusiasm and messaging, but actual libertarian policy is often led by ideology first, outcomes second. That's where I part ways. My point was that if someone is as...
  29. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Statistics are hardly a "caricature." I come from 4 generations of American ranchers, construction workers, and farmers from across the rural West. Someone's occupation hardly justifies...
  30. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Really, though?

    1. Who said I was trying to "convince" anyone? Politics is inherently subjective. I'm not here to try and tell Trump supporters how "wrong" they are. I'm just here to offer my...
  31. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    That's pretty sad, considering a Trump or Cruz nomination would force me to vote Sanders, and I've certainly been no friend to him in this thread. At this point, unless Clinton wins the nomination,...
  32. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    The East Pakistan desk was at risk of jeopardizing US foreign policy in pursuit of personal aims. That's a big no no in the State Dept, regardless of whether said personal aims may have been...
  33. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    It's fairly common knowledge, at least in regards to the modern history of the region; as in something someone making comments about it should know.

    For starters, the State Dept has decades of...
  34. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Just so you know, the US has backed Pakistan from day one. A) India was a strong ally of the Soviets (anti-colonialism, anti-capitalism, anti-western). B) The Muslim League was dominated by...
  35. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    So now I'm an extremist? Bahahahaha..... how exactly does falling in with the anti-Sanders crowd make me extremist? In opposing Sanders, I happen to fall in line with older, more conservative...
  36. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Exactly, and yet "most Americans" agree with core libertarians concept when taken piecemeal. Hence my point. Just because individual tenets of Sanders' platform correlate with specific polls does...
  37. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    Well, he has proudly identified as a socialist for decades. Running from it would only doom his candidacy. Plus, he doesn't seem to be suffering too much from the socialist label, at least not with...
  38. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    I think the pundits completely missed two major factors when they dismissed Sanders as a Democratic Ron Paul. For one thing, a "no" vote for Hillary is a "yes" vote for Sanders. Two, Hillary is...
  39. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    A socialist and a fascist top the GOP and Democratic primaries in New Hampshire by a landslide. A feminist icon is written off as a washed up old hag by those who would be her successors. Liberals...
  40. Re: The race to the 2016 presidential race (former: Republican candidates)

    The Sanders campaign would be wise to capitalize on the momentum from Iowa. A win or another tight race in New Hampshire can only help him exponentially, while a close loss probably wouldn't set him...
