  1. Whether or not it makes sense in universe, I do...

    Whether or not it makes sense in universe, I do think that Star Fortress design was a lot more evocative of WW2 style aerial combat than even what we saw in the original trilogy even though Lucas was...
  2. In wave elections, which 2018 was kind of a weak...

    In wave elections, which 2018 was kind of a weak example but whatever, what voters consider to be the identity of the national party tends to matter a lot more than the specific ideological leaning...
  3. I don't think there's any point considering...

    I don't think there's any point considering Warren as a viable candidate now, given that she just finished fourth behind Klobuchar in her own backyard. She probably would have had a much better...
  4. Just the fact that so-called liberals would even...

    Just the fact that so-called liberals would even consider voting for a former Republican oligarch who is blatantly trying to buy this election over the guy who wants to give people healthcare and a...
  5. At the very least though, Trump doesn't try to...

    At the very least though, Trump doesn't try to hide the disdain that the billionaire class has for regular folks and is completely shameless about promoting policies that enrich him at our expense. ...
  6. The sense I get from Buttigieg is that he's...

    The sense I get from Buttigieg is that he's probably not personally prejudiced but is just weak on race issues, and all other issues really, because he needs the support of police unions and the like...

    Gotham City Sirens is definitely one of those things I thought I would like a lot more than I actually did. The characters are very different thematically and so bringing them together is a case of...

    Whatever happened to the CBR front page anyway? I remember that when I first joined, they ran lots of interviews with creators, commentary and analysis, and other content that wasn't just the pure...
  9. Elections always tend to be an uphill climb for...

    Elections always tend to be an uphill climb for the left because, generally speaking, we have strong principles that we end up tying ourselves into knots trying to uphold, whereas the right quite...
  10. That's why people were freaking out about the...

    That's why people were freaking out about the Rogan endorsement, Bernie does hold enough appeal to that demographic if he chooses to once again ask for their support, as it were. The question is...
  11. That whole study of "mass movements" is just what...

    That whole study of "mass movements" is just what anyone outside the US would call politics. The fact that our system for so long has remained so stable without any threat of a major uprising makes...
  12. Bernie would be a moderate by any reasonable...

    Bernie would be a moderate by any reasonable definition, it's just that American politics skews so far to the right these days that we even find his relatively mild policy prescriptions to be...
  13. I have seen you make the same argument about...

    I have seen you make the same argument about Hillary or black voters before, what I haven't seen is you speaking a genuine word in support of one of these other candidates and, absent all...
  14. It's not that I want everyone to just bend the...

    It's not that I want everyone to just bend the knee to Bernie, it's just that I see people rallying around these objectively awful candidates and I just can't really comprehend why other than because...
  15. Buttigieg trying to position himself as the next...

    Buttigieg trying to position himself as the next Obama has to be the biggest joke of this whole campaign. Even his most ardent supporters can't say that they buy that with a straight face. I mean,...
  16. Buttigieg will not be president, period. The...

    Buttigieg will not be president, period. The centrists are trying to make a show of uniting behind him to take down Bernie, but once he wilts in the spotlight they'll abandon him just like they...
  17. I just love how seamlessly and effortlessly all...

    I just love how seamlessly and effortlessly all the centrists switched from Biden to Buttigieg, completely unfazed by the fact Biden's supposed strengths like his experience, electability, and appeal...
  18. Popular media has so thoroughly inculcated us...

    Popular media has so thoroughly inculcated us with this idea of the "girl boss" that so many people think that the ONLY way that a woman can effectively wield power is just to be a harsh and...
  19. I do like how Republicans are cheerleading Bernie...

    I do like how Republicans are cheerleading Bernie because they think that Americans will be so triggered by any hint of socialism that it'll be an easy win in the general. I mean, that may be the...

    You know that if what happened in Iowa had happened in any other country, you'd have some jackass from the State Department out in front of the cameras expressing grave concerns about the electoral...
  21. Gradual change is only possible if you push for...

    Gradual change is only possible if you push for radical change, if you aim too low the outcome tends to be stagnation at best and taking giant leaps backwards at worst, like what's happening now. ...
  22. Not showing up is tantamount to voting for Trump,...

    Not showing up is tantamount to voting for Trump, cause you can be damned sure none of his supporters are going to be staying home on election day. Pushing for electoral reform is also sort of a...
  23. Buttigieg is probably the one candidate that's...

    Buttigieg is probably the one candidate that's most emblematic of the Democratic party as a whole. His campaign has made a calculated strategic decision that, since he's probably not going to get...
  24. Of all the things that the American political...

    Of all the things that the American political system does to screw minorities out of leverage and influence, this isn't really one of them. The current Frankenstein primary system we have wasn't...

    Yeah but it's pretty silly to suggest that FDR put people in those camps BECAUSE he was economically progressive, or that a moderate wouldn't have done the same or worse. Pretty much nobody at the...
