lol why did the books thread just straight up die? did people just stop reading or something?
I can't tell you for sure if I would vote for him as my education was focused towards policy and political economy, in particular I'm doing a thesis and masters in global order and world systems, and policy (in particular financial) is an area that Clinton wields a much more commanding grasp of, and of course, my educational path also served to develop a more "pragmatic" approach to politics which is, again, something I think she has an advantage in.
On the other hand my close friend, with whom I'm writing that thesis with, chose to focus on theory, in particular he is an avid Hegelian-Marxist and is working on his masters in Marxist theory, finds Sanders to be the better candidate as Sanders is much better in advancing a progressive rhetoric and changing the nature of political discourse.
Now I am sympathetic to Sanders political cause, if you were to ask me about my "idealized" state you would probably be correct in assuming I'm to the left of Sanders, but the disconnect is that what I look for in a politician is beyond just the point of rhetoric and based heavily in how they want to get from point A --> B. Sanders never impressed me in that regard simply because he seemed to not grasp how he would actually accomplish his goals, most notoriously, his failure in explaining how he would "break up the banks" betrayed an immense lack of understanding of financial regulations and his comments regarding anything to do with economics turned me off entirely.
or I could just be paid to think this way, it's a much easier alternative to come to terms with for a lot of people
you, again, would be defeated by the inoculating logic of too much education being bad: i heard a trump dude said the american people were tired of "experts saying what was best for them". if u established your rhetorical credibility in the way you just did youd get told theres no use for ppl like you but ofc if i brought up my opinion it would be un- or misinformed because i havent studied in college yet and thus dont know what im talking about. basically, the dogmatic camps are set, and the undecided voters loathe trump for making a mockery out of conservatism and hillary because she loves isis and hitler
Hey. We play for the BW UU tournament. I'm in GMT +2 and would prefer Saturday evening or Sunday. Could also do early next week.
quality post in the meta thread. keep up the good work n_n
thank you :))
I came to say fuck Latin but then you plugged the RMT so now I'm conflicted
If I did it self referentially, does it still count?
hi! Lcpl semifinals. When can you play?
ye my parents wanted to go out and eat something so i had to leave before 6. Anyways, i'm here for the rest of the day. Sorry about this.
i am on PS if you want to play
it's just what's done
hey man, we should play for the dubs seasonal, when are you available?

Which institution are you planning to attend?
Williams college homie
o shit son got rejected from there :'(
But yeah, since you're going to Williams, I'm assuming that most students have to follow a LA discipline, which probably means you won't start taking specific classes until the second semester of your sophomore year.
it's all good, it's a strange place, but im sorry bruv. yea im just gonna be chilling first semester i think
campaign violence against donald trump supporters is the main issue of the 2016 united states presidential election srry for my behavior von
there's no racial motivation behind this statement
can u prove he's racist? or that i'm racist? i have a black friend (BAN ME PLEASE)
oh btw i have a friend going to williams... She is quite a character
She's like one of those people that are smol & cute & really really smart and she pretends to be sour but on the inside she is sweet and everyone loves her even though she hates it
that's intimidating tbh, all these williams ppl seem interesting and cool and shit and my talents include wrestling reading books and sometimes posting on a pkmn forum. i have a friend who goes to hopkins going to be a senior, he's a smart fucker but is extremely laid back to the point of getting kicked out of wrestling practice all the time, which was good as the team was mad serious. no freshman because my school got boned this yr :((
Hey we are paired for DOU Summer Seasonal. What is a good time to battle? I am EST and Sunday I am off all day as well as Friday.
cool, im eastern as well. sunday probably works! times?
I am free all day that day. So long as it's not like before 9am when I am waking up, I am down for anytime.
Hey I am available now for DOU Ssnl if you are.
Please refrain from telling others that their posts hurt to read in cong
sorry about that. his posts are fucking garbage though
they don't bother trying to defend trump because they know they can't, so they just accuse sanders/clinton supporters of being violent
hey but do you have any proof trump is racist
has he ever been to a lynching? no, hmmmmm? has he personally ever killed a carfull of mexican children while screaming "death to all spics who take our jobs!"? pics or it didnt happen. has he ever been sued and settled for housing discrimination? o wait
okay but do you have any proof
When would you like to continue your quest to have the worst record in LCPL history? :p I'm GMT-4 and should be pretty flexible with time this week, though i'd like to put it off as much as possible because I'm a john. So just lemme know what works dude

I got 6-0ed by an HP Fire Abra on the ladder because this shit has no checks, I fully support your cause

In Which Shrug learns the hard way that there are actually republicans on the internet
i dont think that it is bad; my parents are repub and they are good ppl etc etc. u are too i assume, or at least have leanings. what he said was meant to be funny and was but also sounded peculiar in the sense that it borders on batshit crazy but comes close to approximating one of the dominant ideologies in the country
there is room for only one authority in this world and that is money. what does it matter who controls it when you are so busy trying to get a handful that you can't see straight?
its been a while since a real Shrug Gemme, suffering from poster's block? :(
im now a little nervous my "shtick", as it were, will get abrasive or repetitive, so yes
id like a bible please
first blood round 2 when? im gmt-6 central on from 3:00-9:00 everyday. i can do this whenever your ready
play this weekend, gmt+2
lets try to hammer out a more precise time, do u have a prefered day?
wht is your gmt ? I prefer sunday bcuz saturday is full of complication
est, sunday is good!
your posts make me so happy
that means an awful lot given you are prolly my fav poster on this site ^_^ thank you v much
shrug do you irc
or use online clients like irc cloud or qwebirc!
shrug come on irc god damn!!!
On my phone rn I'll set it up after lax tonight
basically agreed with what post below you said
yeah holy shit i did not expect people to have such a well-formed opinion goddamm
thanks dude i like to occasionally take the time to surprise people with actual responses in between post-post meta ironic humour posts and anime references
tbh az was a kind of a jerk. witty jerk though, very witty
my take was he was generally a nice guy but passed up on being kind to be clever which lead to some jerkishness, the way they took him out though was savage
that's what i thought too at first, but his posts in the is thread abt likes bein removed lowered my opinion of him a lot
hey man is that election thread literally just "bernie or bust" or is it actually worth posting seriously in
yeah it was a pretty sad microcosm of public political discourse. i actually got a bit frustrated by that thread and my initial response to veiva was deleted for being too condescending and i just sort of gave up so thanks for that beautifully constructed depiction of populism by the way, it was quite disheartening when my concerns regarding substance devoid populism were responded to with nothing but populist cliches.
i empathize with their point, bernie does seem like a genuine dude and there arent a lot of those in u.s politics. it's just his lack of image is his image and his policy proposals may as well not exist
no, for sure. in many ways im further left than sanders but thats because of the political climate of canada. where my criticism comes from is that he simply has no idea how to translate his plans in to formal legislation and i prefer to approach politics as both parts ideological as well as practical, which im sure you can relate to
