re: Clinton's Campaign is Afraid of Bernie Sanders - ShortyRob
[quote] Imagine this: Hillary Clinton: "In many cases cervical cancer can be caused by a lack of orgasms." Now honestly tell me how the media would react to that[/quote] It's not that Sanders IS getting scrutiny. It's that ANY democrat complaining about not getting media scrutiny is funn...

re: Hawaii becomes first state to ban plastic bags - ShortyRob
[quote] Actually, it is because plastic saved grocers money.[/quote]False. I was literally IN the grocery business at the time. Environmentalists railed against paper bags endlessly. I'm sure some revisionists have come in since then, but I was THERE! Plastic bags may well have been cheap...

re: In all the PCness why is this still ok. - ShortyRob
[quote]No it actually has a definition and does exist. Check out dictionary.com or you know, wikipedia or something. [/quote]This is true in theory. In practice, liberals have rendered the term meaningless as it can best be said that racism is whatever liberals say it is....

re: Damn, didn't realize just how bad things had become in Puerto Rico - ShortyRob
[quote]Maybe socially, but this generation is also pissed about the economy, student loans, etc. [/quote]Yes. But this generation has come to one hell of a conclusion. If you ask any of them, they will happily tell you how the baby boomers have over spent so much that they don't even believe Soc...

re: Damn, didn't realize just how bad things had become in Puerto Rico - ShortyRob
[quote]I don't know how much forethought is given to those pregnancies. [/quote]My daughter went to high school with two different girls who spent the better part of their senior year TRYING(successfully) to get pregnant so they "could move out" from their parent's house. Is it rational? Of cour...

re: Damn, didn't realize just how bad things had become in Puerto Rico - ShortyRob
[quote]I guess it depends on your state. Thanks for the info [/quote]Not really. It's the case in every state. Being on all the welfare benefits won't exactly buy you a BMW, but you are NOT in "poverty". The reason it "looks" like poverty is the very same behaviors that lead people to end up...

re: Let's get meta - what shaped your political opinions? - ShortyRob
[quote]I became "tuned in" to politics during the 2000 Presidential election. I was a high school freshman on 9/11. Witnessing that event, the lead up to the Iraq war, and the revelation that lies were told by Chaney and others to sell the Iraq war have turned me into a staunch non-interventionist a...

re: Damn, didn't realize just how bad things had become in Puerto Rico - ShortyRob
[quote]Who let this happen? At least welfare in the US puts you in poverty at best. [/quote]This is actually not true at all. The below is most certainly NOT poverty. "The state-by-state estimates are based on a hypothetical family participating in about seven of the 126 federal anti-poverty ...

re: Hawaii becomes first state to ban plastic bags - ShortyRob
Is everyone just going to ignore that plastic bags in grocery stores exist now almost 100% because of environmentalism? Just like always, back when the push came for them, all anyone could see was "all the trees..........paper bags are killing our forests!!!!". No one thought about any ancillary...

re: Damn, didn't realize just how bad things had become in Puerto Rico - ShortyRob
[quote]As a Puerto Rican government report admitted last month, “The high minimum wage raises the cost of employment and prices many employers out of the market, causing unemployment to rise and thus tax revenue to dry up.”[/quote]And this is not exactly a bunch of insane conservatives either! Al...

re: Hawaii becomes first state to ban plastic bags - ShortyRob
[quote]If we go back to paper bags, that will be a boon for all the papermills. [/quote]I think the fun part is that I worked for a grocery chain during the big push for plastic bags............which..........you guessed it............was done for environmental reasons!!!!...

re: Let's get meta - what shaped your political opinions? - ShortyRob
[quote]Let's get meta - what shaped your political opinions? [/quote] Step 1: I've always recognized the inherent value even if the people involved were flawed, of the concept of limited government. I think most Americans don't even realize that those who started this nation wanted government even...

re: A shift?....Bernie Sanders gaining rapidly on Hillary Clinton in Iowa - ShortyRob
The thought of Sanders as president is utterly horrifying. That said, I'm not sure it isn't worth the schadenfreude of watching Hillary crash and burn. I mean, if she loses to that whacko, I think we can safely say that she's the worst "anointed" candidate in history. You just know that sh...

re: Colorado offers free birth control, abortion rates drop by nearly half - ShortyRob
[quote] in that time period, abortion rates for 15–19 year olds in those counties decreased from 10.9 per 1,000 women to 7.2 per 1,000, which is indeed a 34 percent decrease. In that same time frame, abortion rates in counties without the program decreased from 14.4 to 10.2 per 1,000, a 29 percent d...

re: The newest "example" of gender income inequality... - ShortyRob
[quote]There were several women's pro hoops leagues before the WNBA. They all folded. [/quote]This is because women's basketball is a goddamned eyesore. There are some serious athletes in the WNBA. Alas, there are also more than a few who would have trouble holding down a starting spot on an abo...

re: About that Southern regional pride thing - ShortyRob
I didn't read this whole thread, but, the assertion that it isn't common in the south for people to hold a bit of kinship with other southerners, especially in response to barbs from outside the south is more than a little spurious. Does every southerner feel that way? No. Is it uncommon? Pahlee...
