  1. Pero mi ola azul!!! https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/10/19/17996718/latino-voters-midterms In an October 16 poll, the groups found that 55 percent of Latino voters haven’t experienced any form of election outreach from Democrats or Republicans. Voters indicated that they hadn’t yet been contacted by a political party, campaign, or community organization about voting across multiple platforms including phone, mail, and email. At the same time in the 2016 election, almost the exact same proportion of Latino voters also said that they hadn’t received any outreach. An October 17, 2016, poll found that 56 percent of Latino voters had not heard from either political party as the election was approaching.
  2. Prediction: The Left and the media already know the Mueller/Russian Collusion investigation is a dud. Which is why they are pushing the narrative so hard of the Saudi “journalist” murder in an attempt to prove Saudi/Trump Collusion.
  3. [Collimatrix here, I'm splitting this off and doing something I should have done a long time ago, which is have a thread dedicated to terror attacks and active shooters. News updates, professional analysis, that sort of thing. I know that these events are always very emotional and shocking, but let's try to keep it reasonable and level-headed. AEarly reports are usually godawful wrong. The whole truth may not come out for months. Anyone who tries to make a political point before the blood has congealed is a jackass.] So apparently there was a mass shooting in Las Vegas on the strip that just happened. We'll have to wait until useful information begins to trickle in and for 24-48 hours to go by before the false reports get corrected. Edit: The shaky mobile phone cam footage "sounds" kind of like automatic weapons fire. That is just a wild guess on my part. See second line.
  4. And just so to prove we aren't a complete conservative circle jerk here at SH, here is the stupidest political column that I've read in a week. https://fee.org/articles/price-gouging-during-disasters-is-actually-a-good-thing/?platform=hootsuite Price Gouging During Disasters Is Actually a Good Thing ...

  8. Democrat Party: Why did 6.7 to 9.2 million Americans who voted for Obama suddenly decide to vote for Trump? Vox: THEY'RE RACISTS!!!!!!! https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/10/16/17980820/trump-obama-2016-race-racism-class-economy-2018-midterm
  9. Apologies for Breitbart and all but... https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/10/17/hree-percent-of-elizabeth-warrens-dna-from-ancestor-who-rounded-up-cherokees-for-trail-of-tears/ Breitbart News first reported in 2012 that Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) great-great-great grandfather Jonathan Crawford was a member of the Tennessee Militia that rounded up Cherokees living there at the time for the Trail of Tears journey to Oklahoma in the 1830s.
  10. BAAAEEEYYYEEERRR!!! BROOOOOO...mmm!!! http://www.kbbi.org/post/seldovia-woman-fends-bear-inside-her-home-broom A Seldovia woman fought off a black bear inside of her home with nothing more than a broom early Monday morning. ... “He was growling, spitting, clicking his teeth at me. I shoved him back up onto the porch. He jumped back up onto that window. He’s so fat, he could not fit through the window,” Mahan explained. “I hauled off and gave that broom everything I had, and I shoved him out that two-story window, he hit my son’s truck and dented the door – then making all sorts of noises and took off running.” ... “It had to be over 200 pounds. He was looking at me. I run in bedroom to grab my gun. I get my gun. I don’t realize that my ammo is old,” Mahan recalled over the phone Tuesday. “As I’m walking out my bedroom door in a hurry, he’s already in the living room standing between my couch and my rifle cabinet. He starts peeling his lips back and growling at me. I pull my gun to shoot on him and it dry fires.” Mahan said after her pistol failed to fire a second time, she grabbed a metal broom nearby and began hitting the bear, pushing it back towards the entryway.
  11. I love how Trump conned Sen Warren into paying for a test to prove definitively to the world that she lied about her Indian heritage.

    Yes. And he also had a sizable warplane and tank collection in Everett. In addition to the everything else mentioned. Also, he donated millions of dollars to take away my 2nd Amendment rights via an anti-gun initiative on the ballot this November.
  13. I see mahk has diversified from just bashing Chevy's. And holy hell, I didn't realize Papa John's made a cringe-worthy ad like that.
  14. The President signed legislation to provide funding for ocean trash cleanup. https://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2018/10/12/Trump-signs-Save-Our-Seas-Act-to-boost-clean-up-efforts-in-worlds-oceans/6911539318914/
  15. The day may come in the not too distant future when humanity will become enslaved by their new robot overlords. But it isn't today!
  16. Portland Police have issued a mealy-mouthed explanation as to their lack of police response stopping rioters from illegally blocking city traffic. https://www.portlandoregon.gov/police/news/read.cfm?id=189415&ec=1&ch=twitter "Prior to the event two police liaisons unsuccessfully attempted to communicate with event planners to establish a route for the march. This would have helped facilitate a safe route for demonstrators, while also ensuring road users had alternative routes. On the day of, the Police Bureau actively monitored the march with the objectives to try to provide a safe environment for all and facilitate a peaceful event so that those involved were able to express their constitutional rights to free speech. The march ultimately involved a small part of downtown; the Bureau was aware of traffic disruptions and two incidents where drivers and protesters exchanged words. Police have been made aware of one vehicle that sustained damage, but there was no other reported property damage or damage to infrastructure and no one was injured. Command was closely monitoring these situations and had to make the careful decision to balance the need to clear the street to allow for the flow of traffic versus the risk of officers having to potentially use force and enflame an already tenuous situation.
  17. I still can't believe this is allowed to happen on the streets of a major US city. Honest law abiding citizens are being forced to the razors edge of defending themselves from attack, and risking becoming a criminal for committing a hit-and-run
  18. So three days ago, Taylor Swift made national headlines after she endorsed the Democrat in Tennessee's Senate race. The first poll since that announcement has been released. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/upshot/elections-poll-tnsen-2.html Republican Blackburn is leading the Taylor Swift-backed Democrat by 14 points. 54 to 40. ... But muh blue wave!!!
  19. Well, Otis lives upstream from where we fish (about 70-80 miles) so he's eating all the salmon we didn't catch. And it was a good year with a big late season fish escapement for all of these fatties.

    Drill, baby! Drill! https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-alaska-conocophillips/oil-flowing-at-new-site-within-petroleum-reserve-in-alaska-idUSKCN1MK05N Production at GMT 1 is expected to peak at 25,000 to 30,000 barrels a day, the company said.

  21. I thought an edgy edglord would post this about Nietzsche...

    General cars and vehicles thread.

    I guess a lot of it would depend on what exactly is meant when "the mechanical work is done". Especially when said mechanical work isn't photographed. As is, it has that neat "rat rod" feel. which is fine, in and of itself. It's just hard to justify that sort of expenditure on a Nova.

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    Reuters article which actually recognizes that many gun owners and organizations aren't happy with the NRA and have formed their own state-wide groups to do the heavy lifting supporting the Second Amendment. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-guns-states/local-gun-groups-flex-muscle-in-state-politics-sidestepping-the-nra-idUSKCN1MI12G These groups have become increasingly active in promoting a pro-gun agenda in many states, unafraid of alienating lawmakers who waver on gun rights. In many cases, they say they would rather lose a legislative fight on principle than compromise and support a watered-down bill. At times, this can put local groups at odds with the NRA, which some see as too willing to give ground on the most aggressive pro-gun laws in state legislatures, said Greg Pruett, president of the Idaho Second Amendment Alliance, which formed in 2012. “It’s always kind of interesting when you see a lot of people in the gun control community talk about how radical the NRA is,” said Pruett, whose group organized an email and telephone campaign to pass a 2016 Idaho law allowing people to carry concealed handguns without a permit, also known as “constitutional carry.” “There’s an entire movement on the other side of the NRA ... We’re done compromising,” he said.
