I have an opinion about why the latter two users deploy multiple screen names at the same time, but I will refrain from discussing it.

No reason to refrain, I've posted why on more than one occasion. Once the ridiculous flag and personal buttons were added, the site's logic started putting some users comments in moderation automatically because some of the Trump supporters purposely flagged every comment to be trolls. In order to get around that, I created other names that wouldn't go straight to moderation.

The people changing usernames or creating new one's are blatantly obvious. The writing style is exactly similar. No interest in calling out users here since it's against the rules, but either make it completely anonymous or stop allowing people to change usernames. It's your site, so don't take this the wrong way. It's meant as constructive criticism. There are 3-4 trolls that change their identity every month practically. I'm starting to think it's the same damn person just fucking with the board.

I still fail to see the problem though--if you judge a post by its content, you shouldn't care. The only reason people want to know the commenter's identity is so they can prejudge before reading the content.

I remember struggling with I think it was JoeyJoeJoe about Winner Take All elections, trying to get him to understand that it doesn't matter if you win by 80% or 50.5% of the vote.

So if pissed off Dems in Manhattan, Brooklyn, SFBA, etc. come out it droves... it doesn't matter. They don't win anymore seats because of it. Only competitive districts matter.

Of course. Nate takes that into account obviously. His probability is based on state polling, not national.

And he was one of the only people whose model understood the importance of uncertainty and high numbers of undecided, and the conditional nature of the probability.

That's why he had it right while all the other journalists had it so wrong.

And, fyi, their House forecast has gotten even bluer recently--they aren't covering their ass on anything.

Speaking of JJJ, we talked alot about special Elections.

Anybody know what the record was in those?

Sure--I think Dems overperformed by about 12 pts on average.

What happened that everybody is pretending to be shocked??

MBS was supposedly a "reformer" and changing Saudi. Now we know he's no different than previous leaders.

Just like Trump is no different than previous Presidents and sucks Saudi dick hard.

Khashoggi was a propagandist who worked for the Middle East Monitor, a Muslim Brotherhood affiliated publication. He was belatedly given a job at the WaPo last year, probably on the world of Muslim-Brotherhood=democracy types in the "Intel Community".

Do you deny Khashoggi's connections to the Muslim Brotherhood and OBL?

I have no idea, and neither do you because there was no trial, no evidence presented. Instead, the leader of a supposed US ally murdered a journalist because he wrote unflattering articles and dared speak the truth.

Okay, so how do we blame it all on Trump?

No the question is how to we rationalize it so Trump gets no blame.

Yeah and they've got audio recording of it too. Who records murders? It's a play out of the Bolshevik play book of Commie Bastards starting wars to get their way Vol. III

The Saudis didn't record it-Turkey did.

Remember the hype about the Special Elections being some kind of Barometer towards a "Blue Wave"? Never Materialized.

Oh it materialized. Overperforming by 12 points is materializing. Winning a Senate race in Alabama?? That's materializing.

The real test is in a few weeks...

Really curious, what was the "truth" Kashoggi was writing about the current Saudi rulers?

Sure--this is a good place to start:

Which previous Saudi leaders issued driver's licenses to women, and allowed them to attend sports events - including without a male family chapperone?


"In fact, MBS is a duplicitous, dangerous hardline fraud – the kind of man who publicly pushed for women to drive whilst privately overseeing the arrest of women’s rights activists."

The flag and personal buttons are working as intended. For instance using the term “trump cuck” in a way that is targeted towards an individual is in fact a personal insult and one I’ve flagged you for before.

But "libtard" is OK?

Goran_K says
Plain and simple, keep insults to yourself and you won’t get flagged. The system is working and I wasn’t even an advocate for it in the beginning. I also have noticed your posts have become more civil so I commend you on that.

I wish that were the case.... Sadly, it is not.

How many more seats do you get if you win a seat by 3 points or 12 points?

But in any case, the only 2 flips were exceptional cases; a Perennial Failed Candidate (Moore) and a Bluedogiest of Bluedogs after a Republican Scandal (Mistress & Abortion in a socially conservative area) by a handful of votes. The other 9 remained as they were - mostly Republican.

But the overperformance was seen almost across the board.

And here's a newsflash for you--all the races in November aren't in +20 Rep districts like the special elections were.

Nope, not whataboutism

lol. It's the definition of whataboutism.

Any time someone questions a Trump policy--the whataboutism answer is, but, but, but what about Obama.

Or when someone questions the Saudis murdering a journalist in their embassy--the whataboutism answer is but, but, but what about Iran.

Bob, why are you and tatupu running away from answering my questions?

I'm not answering any more of your loaded questions until you start answering mine.

Loaded question?? lol. All Bob asked was for you to provide ANY evidence backing your ridiculous conspiracy theory about who paid for Obama's education. You made this claim--is it that hard to show why you said it?

I know the goal is to distract from the murder of a journalist by any means necessary, but let's try to stay on topic.

The US government has consistently been only able to retrieve about 18% - 21% of GDP from the income tax. Didn't matter when the top rates were 91% or 25%, that range has held solid. It's called Hauser's law, after the guy who discovered it.

Hauser's law is bullshit. We're in the midst of proving it this year. Revenue is down 19%.

None. They are actively suppressing free speech though and should be regulated. Or if you think they shouldn't be regulated then neither shouldn't the restaurant/bakery/club owner only catering to men, women, blacks, whites, Jews, Christians, gays, straights etc. Don't be a hypocrite, can't have it both ways.

The bakery won their case.

You can't have it both ways.

@tatupu70 can you point me to a flagged post or comment?

Sure--I believe it was post 348.

But the even funnier one is the post that was marked spam in another thread. I'd love for someone to tell me how my post can be considered spam.

Bottom line, for me at least, Islam is cancer and the left/Democrats think they can tame it and use Islam as an ally. They are dead fucking wrong. Islam is using the left to get what they want, but once they do, they will throw democrats off buildings just as easily in Michigan as they did in Syria.

Uh--Trump is the one who is trying to make Saudi an ally now. Last I checked they are the #1 backer of fundamentalist Islam and terrorism. If anyone is trying to use Islam as an ally it's Trump.

I don't want to argue over Trump's accomplishments--I think that's been done to death.

I just found it ironic that a poster was talking about how Dems are trying to make allies with Islam while Trump is busy covering up a murder for Saudi Arabia.

Covering up for Saudi arabia? That's quite a stretch.

Looks like the truth hurts.
