  1. Clinton transitioned to getting more electoral votes from the south between 1992 and 1996, not less, and the Southern states that he won didn't vote less favorably for him, in fact they stayed the same and Louisiana voted more. I think another notable exception is the 1968 election, where Nixon lost the South despite appealing to Southern racists so well. Texas even went blue! It seems to me in studying it that the 1964 election was due to Johnson's Great Society Act, and Southern states didn't like the idea of Government handouts, as well as the fact that it seems Goldwater was a fucking nutcase who couldn't campaign for shit. I think that the presidential elections were completely disconnected from the real political feeling and couldn't indicate a party switch because the Presidential campaigns are so much more dependent on the individual candidate than looking at the Congressional elections. The South kept voting Democrat in the House and Senate until the Republicans started gaining more ground in 1984, and not a majority until around 1996, though there were still a lot of Democrats being elected in the South even then. Senate, 1976 House, 1976 Senate, 1984 House, 1984 Senate, 1996 House, 1996

    Not sure i this is the exact right thread for this, but who in the hell is the face in this graffiti? A friend saw this and emailed it to me asking, and I have spent 2 weeks searching and not getting an answer. Google image search thins the first picture is just brickwork and the second one just gives the result "rock" with Wikipedia links to both the music genre and the geological rock. Here is the face alone with only the black stenciled/drawn parts:
  5. Trump's approval rating rose 1% nationwide in the last month, 10% among Hispanics.

  11. hahaha https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/26/politics/donald-trump-mcmaster-speech/index.html (CNN)President Donald Trump jetted to South Carolina on Monday night to rally support for Gov. Henry McMaster, who faces a runoff fight today. The President, as he so often does, spoke for an hour mostly about himself, his enemies, his friends and his thoughts on everything from Jimmy Fallon to Arnold Schwarzenegger and back. And oh yeah, he supports McMaster. I went through the transcript from Monday night's speech and highlighted the 55 most newsworthy, cringe-inducing and just plain odd lines. They're below. 1. "They said, 'Sir, would you mind going back? Would you mind if we didn't stop?' I said, 'There's no way. We cannot stop,' right?" The weather above South Carolina wasn't great, forcing the Trump plane to circle for the better part of an hour before landing. Also: "There's no way. We cannot stop" is a decent slogan for the Trump presidency. And away we go! 4. "We got Pennsylvania and we got Florida. We started off that night: 'Donald Trump has won the state of Florida,' right? And they go, 'Whoa, whoa, they just lost Florida.'" The 2016 election ended 595 days ago. counting the days since the election 7. "Now, you know we have a lot of fake news back there, these fakers." The amazing thing about Trump's attack on the media here (and often) is the contradiction that sits at the center of it: He wants to attack the media as fake but then also get credit for the number of journalists who cover him. 9. "So please get your asses out tomorrow and vote." Real quote from the President of the United States. yeah, because the Donald does not play by your rules, fake news. refer to #7 10. "I don't care. I don't care. And I like her. She was another one right from the beginning. She didn't talk about other people, right?" What's important here is that a) Trump doesn't care and b) He liked Arrington, the state legislator who beat Sanford, because she liked him first. Trump is purely transactional. Say nice things about him, he will say nice things about you. Attack him and he will attack you. It's that simple. mhm 21. "Sometimes you have to toot your own horn because nobody else is going to do it." Donald Trump, explained in 16 words. 43. "The Democrats want to protect illegals coming into this country, some of whom are not good, some of whom cause lots of problems in the worst possible way, they want to protect illegals coming into the country, much more so than they want to protect you, and that's not where we're coming from, OK?" This feels like an oversimplification. Also, on a serious note: Trump is saying that Democrats care more about illegals than people in that room. It's "us" vs. "them." Always. Yeah, because you do. 44. "Hey look. I got a bad hand, I got the job, and trade deals were bad. I mean, how bad were trade deals?" Trump's most natural stance is an aggrieved victim. He sees his victimhood in absolutely everything. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA 45. "So, Canada, 'Oh, Canada,' I love their national anthem, 'Oh, Canada,' I like ours better, however." Donald Trump's definitive ranking of national anthems: 1. US 2. Canada What, you don't? Oh yeah, because you're gonna move to Canada. 48. "And by the way, I have these stupid teleprompters, you don't mind that I haven't used them all night, do you? Every once in a while -- every once in a while I look at it, I mean, it's so boring, we don't want it." I do not mind. Not at all. yeah, because the Donald does not play by your rules, fake news. refer to #9 49. "No, I, you know, I'm looking, I keep looking, I just see things, and just -- they're true, but they're not quite as exciting." Trump is talking about what is written on his teleprompter -- and, in so doing, revealing his true entertainer nature. He wants to hear the cheers of the crowd. Badly. is that a bad thing to you? oh yeah, because your candidate can only get cheers by talking about how much she's a woman and not a lizard 54. "We're going to win at space." What, exactly, would this entail? WINNING! 55. "By the way, Henry, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, Air Force, right, Air Force, and what are we going to do? Space Force. People love that." SPACE FORCE. People love that. You know what? Let's end on that! The Space Marines are coming, people.

  16. The Triumvirate consists of the Donald as both Caesar and Crassus (the populist and the moneybags), with Mad Dog Mattis (or maybe like Paul Ryan) as Pompey (the soldier/the establishment member). The Rubicon is the Rio Grande. I will try to get videos of the Civil War. Edit: considering almost the entire gun-owning populous of the U.S. would fall on the Trump side of the Civil War, (and probably a good bit of the Army too), it might be too short for me to travel to combat zones for videos.
  17. Our Glorious Donald is clearly Julius Caesar. He may not be a military leader, but a populist breaking all the rules, scaring the shit out of the legislative assembly, and getting to do whatever he wants by bypassing that legislative assembly, who are all the while powerless because there's an entire new generation of politicians backing him on the rise? Cmon. Edit: If Trump is assassinated, likely considering the arms prowess of the opposition, I expect Stephen Miller or somebody to re-enact the funeral oratory scene from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.

    @LoooSeR My Russian Language course says that it is a saying in St. Petersburg that "the weather changes more often than a woman her opinion". Is this true?
  19. I... what? http://nexusilluminati.blogspot.com/2016/04/the-hitler-dynasty-1945-fbi-report.html "details of [Angela Merkel's] birth were included in the records of the German Dr. Karl Klauberg, who was one of the Nazi "death doctors" convicted by Soviet courts and imprisoned. When he later was recognized as a brilliant scientist, he was released after seven years and was recognized as the father of artificial insemination.The Soviets were even more intrigued when they discovered Dr. Klauberg had preserved frozen samples of the sperm of Adolf Hitler. The forces of darkness in high places decided to try to produce a child from Hitler's sperm, obviously for occult and illuministic purposes. Dr. Klauberg then brought the youngest sister of Eva Braun (Hitler's wife), whose name was Gretl, to Eastern Germany, and the result of the experiment produced not a biological son of Hitler, but rather a daughter.Amazingly, Adolf Hitler was born on April 20th, 1889, and Angela Merkel was born on April 20th, 1954. (April 20th is 11 days before the witches' high Sabbat of Beltane.)" "On April 20th, 2005, the Nazi Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI, (16th), precisely on the 116th birthday of Adolf Hitler. The etymology of the name Hitler reveals that the name means a shepherd who lives in a hut. The name Adolf from Old High German means noble wolf. Thus, his combined name indicates that he was the Shepherd Wolf, or false shepherd. Strangely enough, Pope Ratzinger, or Benedict XVI, also has the title of Shepherd of the Church, and since he took office, the Roman Catholic Church has had a German shepherd. Incidentally, that breed of dog resembles a wolf."

    Math Nerdery Thread

    My mother is a math professor, and showed me this proof after seeing it at a conference: ...99999999.0 represents an infinitely large number composed of 9's and stopping at the decimal place) ...99999999.0 = x ...99999990.0 = 10x (as the 9's will stretch to infinity all the same, even when multiplied by 10) 9 = -9x -1 = x ...99999999.0 = -1 Secondary way of looking at it: ...9999999999.0 = x (add 1) ...0000000000.0 = x+1 (as the carried-over one from adding one to 9 will never drop down into the number) ...9999999999.0+1 = 0 ...9999999999.0 = -1
