re: IRL Discussion with Asians - Tyrusrex
[quote]OH HERRO HARRY POTTER!!!![/quote] I know you don't mean any ill will and you consider this harmless, but I'm Asian American and making fun of people's accents just isn't cool. It's like that idiot on the O'Reilly report where that guy went to Chinatown and tried to make fun of Asian stere...

re: So who actually leads early voting?? - Tyrusrex

re: Does anyone actually think Hillary is an intelligent, accomplished person? - Tyrusrex
I think Hillary is fairly intelligent, to deny otherwise would be wrong. But at the same time, I think she's weak and self-serving and would be better as an advisor instead of a leader. I won't give you my opinion on Trump as you wouldn't like it. I firmly fall in the Colin Powell camp of they'...

re: So who actually leads early voting?? - Tyrusrex
Historically, early voting favors Republicans. But this year, early voting have seen an increase in the ratio between Democratic ballots and Republican ballots, so the Republican historical advantage has been much smaller. So both sides have been spinning early voting as a victory....

re: Crunching #'s, I think Trump will win - Tyrusrex
[quote]I'd have to agree with you if we elected a president via popular vote. I do think trump gets a good bit more people out to vote for him but in the highly populated urban areas the dems will get the people put to vote. Remember Gore won the popular vote by more than 500k. I do think it wil...

re: I swear to god some of you are pussies - Tyrusrex
[quote]What a ridiculous conclusion, you draw. I think most women know the private talk among men in a locker room might not be suitable at the dinner table. Between HRC and Trump, my vote goes to Trump who is much more in line with my views on policy.[/quote] Finally a sane response from a Trump...

re: Spinoff thread: Who here believes Bush's policies caused the housing crash? - Tyrusrex
[quote]Interesting. So your presumption is SEC bureaucrats should know more about products and financial vehicles being traded than those involved in the common marketplace transactions? That is quite a standard. Obviously individuals that mentally well equipped would be in high private sector deman...

re: Spinoff thread: Who here believes Bush's policies caused the housing crash? - Tyrusrex
[quote]Neither caused it. The housing crash was the result of many different factors over several decades. I would argue that the primary antecedent culprit was obscure legislation in the 70's that set up the current "ratings agency" model which we have. In any event, it most certainly was not c...

re: Brexit Disaster Propels British Stocks To Record Highs - Tyrusrex
[quote]And their currency has lost almost 20% of its value since Brexit so where is the real gain?[/quote] This. Any gains that the Footsie made in stock prices is wiped out because the British Pound has lost a tremendous amount of value. There are too many people on this board who are blind ...

re: Hillary saying tax cuts caused 2008 meltdown - Tyrusrex
What caused the 2008 meltdown was a confluence of many factors by Democrats, Republicans, bankers, ratings agencies and, the Federal Reserve any one of which could've stopped the whole thing from happening or at least from not getting to be as nearly as bad as it was. 1) Democrats --> pushed for ...

re: My fear of Hillary makes we want to get some bitcoin - Tyrusrex
This is stupid, people shouldn't be afraid of Hillary because she's going to make radical changes. Hillary is establishment as she can be. She's essentially said, she just wants to be a continuation of the Obama presidency. And you know what, the United States hasn't collapsed since Obama came in...

re: All this flooding and no climate change threads? - Tyrusrex
It could be climate change it might not. This is a one time event, so it's hard to say. Climate change isn't supposed to make things drier but could make events more intense when they do happen. More energy and moisture in the atmosphere- stronger events (blizzards, floods, droughts, hurricanes) ...

re: To those who are comparing rally sizes - Tyrusrex
I actually think the rally sizes do mean something, but at the same time I believe the polls as well. The people who go to rallies are the most fervent for the candidate. This means that Trump most likely has a very strongly devoted core of supporters, but at the same time Hillary has a larger br...
