2161  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: It's official: Obama Vs McCain. Coming this November '08 on: June 05, 2008, 11:37:19 PM

The problem with my premise is not that I want people to be shamed - it's that I'm optimistic that the people who say stupid things are capable of feeling shame.  Statements like black people vote for Obama "because he looks like them" deserve to be mocked and excoriated.

Contrary to what others might try to portray here.... the fact that he is black and I can empathize with all the african americans I work with in their desire to have the ultimate barrier broken down makes me (I can't speak for all Republicans) extremely sympathetic and wishing that he was more centric so I could get behind what could be an amazing moment in our country's history.    I can't do this because of his positions and his orientation on the political spectrum.     If he does win I will be glued to the TV on inaguration day, however, as we witness a great moment in our history.

You don't have to make up BS on this guy.   He's got an extremely liberal record in the Illinois senate, and he did all sorts of ultra cool stuff they can use back in the 1970s.

Any why can't the old rules apply, because he's black?

It'll be interesting to see what the neocons can throw at Obama.  I figure any substantial dirt would be uncovered by the Clinton political machine.  They're not known for playing nice, so if there was a major skelley in the closet, they would have found it.

Who said anything about race?  Or is that all you see when you look at him?

A month or so ago you called me a bigot.   Now you are inferring I'm a racist.    I'm really not sure why other posters bother to discuss anything with you at all.   You can go to Hell.

I'm quite sure the Republicans have a moving van worth of materials ready to roll out about Obama.... carefully timed so that he stays in trouble but not a shotgun approach that would appear like a hatchet job.  Unless Obama is somehow opposite of every other candidate in history -- the negative attacks will have an effect.  People claim they hate negative campaigning, but it usually is successful. I agree with a previous poster that the primary campaign was just a kiddie fight compared to what we are about to see.

A good theory but it misses the fact that even Rove has admitted that many of the old rules won't apply in this matchup.  So go ahead and hurl the moving van's worth of made up B.S.  Unlike Kerry, Obama isn't going to lie down for version 2.0 of the Republican Swiftboat campaign.

HEY!!!

You want to know who I'm interested in supporting? Whoever runs in 2012. We have two senators in McCain and Obama that are looking for a promotion. Both are vacuous politicians and neither inspires me to do anything other than start hording my money for when the inevitable tax increases lops 10-20% off my paycheck. Good times. Roll Eyes

It may affect him, but the repubs risk further disenfranchising the populous.  Also, Obama can just play on the 'you trust these guys to tell the truth about anything all of a sudden' card.

Half the populous.    Remember that national polls still show polls between McCain and Obama splitting it right down the middle.    You are competing for about 5% of the voters to swing it.   Also remember that despite what people say, they don't seem to react to negative campagning in practice.   They complain about it and then don't modify their vote because of it.

I used to want Hillary to prevail in the primary because I thought she would be easier to beat in the fall than Obama.

Sometime last week it occurred to me that I was wrong.  We've had nearly 2 decades of skeletons from Clinton's closet. Nothing is left in there.... it's all been hashed and rehashed.  Nobody is surprised by any rehashed material.   

I'm quite sure the Republicans have a moving van worth of materials ready to roll out about Obama.... carefully timed so that he stays in trouble but not a shotgun approach that would appear like a hatchet job.  Unless Obama is somehow opposite of every other candidate in history -- the negative attacks will have an effect.  People claim they hate negative campaigning, but it usually is successful.

Wow...I put in a 10 hour day at work before heading over to the Xcel at 5:30.  At 5:55, I was in a line of undetermined length.  It took almost 2 1/2 hours of baby steps over 9 blocks but I did get in!  The line was reportedly over a mile long and once Obama took the stage, another 18,000 people watched outside on the exterior BigScreens.   

After standing in line for all that time, I was mighty parched so I chugged a couple of pitchers of Kool-Aid.  Damn if it wasn't the best tasting stuff I've ever had.

Seriously, even if you are a (R), you should consider a trip to hear Obama as he is probably the best public speaker of our day.   He lit that place on fire.  It should be a very spirited race between Obama and McCain.  One down, one to go...I

There is a reason he has invoked Reagan several times (even though it brought him flack from some in the Democratic party).    He is very similiar in style and delivery.   He also patterned his message of optimism after him.     Clinton (Bill) had a very folksy, ordinary guy with an education thing going.    Reagan and now Obama both have (had) very visonary 'history in the making' type styles.    The public responds very well to natural born visonary speakers like both of them.   Yes, Obama is on the opposite side of the political spectrum as Reagan, but their styles are undeniaby similiar.

You could read this excerpt from Reagan's farewell address and easily hear Obama giving something very similiar:

Quote
The past few days when I've been at that window upstairs, I've thought a bit of the "shining city upon a hill." The phrase comes from John Winthrop, who wrote it to describe the America he imagined. What he imagined was important because he was an early Pilgrim, an early freedom man. He journeyed here on what today we'd call a little wooden boat; and like the other Pilgrims, he was looking for a home that would be free.

I've spoken of the shining city all my political life, but I don't know if I ever quite communicated what I saw when I said it. But in my mind it was a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace, a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity, and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it and see it still.

And how stands the city on this winter night? More prosperous, more secure, and happier than it was eight years ago. But more than that; after 200 years, two centuries, she still stands strong and true on the granite ridge, and her glow has held steady no matter what storm. And she's still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home.

Re: battery recycling, Toyota pays $200 for dead batteries.  Of course, there have been nearly 0 thus far, but from a consumer perspective, you wouldn't have to worry about every paying to dispose of it--Toyota pays you.  And I haven't heard of many Prius batteries ever losing a charge thus far, with many well over 200,000 and even 300,000 miles.  Not saying it can't happen, but thus far it's looking like worrying about the battery isn't worthwhile--something else will likley die first, as in any other car. 

Re: 20,000 miles/year @ 17mpg.  MSD, Prius or not, trade that sucker in for something else.  Imagine the extra gaming you could do with that cashola cola.  smile 

Re: resale.  I know people who, while the tax credit was still in effect, would buy a new Prius each year.  They'd trade their old one in a year later, and the resale had dropped so little that they paid nearly $0 out of pocket after taking into account the tax credit.  Resale is down a bit since then (though still clearly way better than most cars), but it's creeping up again due to the rise in gas prices.  Toyota has removed the short-lived incentives they had on the car, and most of what I've heard recently points to the stock being 'order and wait'.   At least it's not back to the point where people are paying over MSRP. 

I didn't meant to hijack this thread into a 'my Prius rocks!' lovefest, but I get reeled in whenever hybrids are debated.  smile  It certainly doesn't make sense for everyone, but it is a heck of a fun car.

BTW --  are we sure Hybrids aren't worth it yet?   48 MPG versus the 34 MPG I'm considering in the MINI.    Everyone I talk to seem to tell me the maint cost + potential battery replacement + other factors make it not make sense.

They're a transitional technology. If you flip cars every few years, you won't own a hybrid long enough to make back its extra cost. If you drive a car until the wheels fall off, you risk expensive battery replacements at a time when the prevailing technology might have moved on to something else entirely, or at the very least a more advanced generation of the same hybrid concept. Either way, it's not a gamble that would make sense for me, since I drive very little.

If you put a lot of miles on a car, then the payback period is shorter and hybrids start to make more sense. They might very well be worth it if you have a long commute, and don't intend to change jobs or move closer to work.

The other factor is the consideration that you're helping slowdown mankinds inate ability to destroy everything he touches (or drives by).

I don't think msduncan cares about the environment, and that's a red herring anyway. All it does is assuage some of your guilt over driving. If you seriously want to make a difference, change your life so that driving becomes optional and infrequent, rather than something you can't avoid. We cannot consume our way to a better future.

I put about 20,000 miles per year on a vehicle.    I think that's $5100 in gas at current rates since my current vehicle gets only 17 mpg

If you click on the version of the electoral map link above that takes you to Clinton vs McCain.... it sure does bolster Clinton's argument that she's the stronger general election candidate.   

Which means what this far out?  Not much, I'd say. 

The alternative to Obama is to award the nomination to the candidate that didn't get the most actual votes and didn't win the nomination via the process the party put into place.  There's nothing good that could come from that scenario, whatever the polling would suggest.



I'm actually suprised there wasn't a major 3rd party candidate this year.   Seems to me this would have been a golden opportunity for one.    If you examine what has happened in the R and D camps, the party favored candidates were abandoned for either new faces (Barack) or mavericks (McCain).   This to me says the electorate was tired of the same old business in Washington, and it reflected as early as the primaries for both parties.  

If a strong 3rd party had run for President this year, they might have won the whole thing.

Nonsense. Third party candidates face normally insurmountable obstacle towards winning -- most importantly the lack of a built in ground organization (the GOP and Democrats have well-tuned turnout machines that took decades to construct and train) to turn out the vote -- and when they win they have NO partisan allies in the other branches of government to turn to for support. That third parties try to win the presidency instead of focusing first and foremost on the legislative bodies shows how third party-ism tends to attract those who are the least grounded in political realism.

Also, Hillary's "polls" against McCain are a chimera. Right now, NO ONE is taking pot shots at Hillary Clinton, she's getting a complete free ride. Obama switched to general election mode (and isn't even really pouring money into the present primaries) after Indiana and is focused on McCain, and McCain is focused on Obama. With no concerted effort to drag her down being executed, Clinton is, of course, benefiting in the polls.

She's toast by Thursday.

I've often wondered what in the crap was happening back in 1992 when Ross Perot was getting a very significant percentage in the polls before he dropped out.       Without the machine you mentioned above, he was attracting huge numbers for an independent in a Presidential election.

Ron Paul got 3% running as a Republican. Why would he or anyone else have done any better as a 3rd Party candidate? This is still a two party country fighting over which side of the Titanic they sit on.

Because Ron Paul wasn't mainstream enough.    Ross Perot (yes, insane) at least early on in the 92 campaign made people think he was mainstream and had a 'let's fix it' message.    Nobody has come forward with that message from a third party perspective this year that was big name enough and electable enough.

So I just read an article.    More analysts are adopting the theory of $200 and beyond oil prices within 10 months.    This will be a massive downward force on our economy.    Gasoline prices will spike out of control.     We are in uncharted territory my friends....   in the 1930's a large segment of the population was agriculture and thus able to sustain themselves by self reliance.     We are facing the potential for an economic situation which is similiar except that we have turned service and only a fragment of the population is involved in agriculture and thus self sustaining.

All that to say this:

I placed my FJ Cruiser on the market Friday.    I put it up for an optimistic price.    It's rather a niche vehicle, and I placed it within the bounds of what others were asking for theirs, so nothing unreasonable.   

After reading these other analysts, I have a sudden panic to lower the price just to my payoff amount and get rid of it.     Should I do this, or give it a few weeks in the hopes of recovering my $1500 downpayment that I originally put out over what I still owe?

Should I give it a go for a few weeks, or put it at a price to sell immediately?   These daily reports from oil analysts are scaring me.

Edit to add clarification though:   I think Republicans lose in a country ass whoopin this fall.    They are being punished by the electorate -- some of which is justified (acting just like Democrats for 10 years in the spending department), and some of which is not (the massive tidal wave of reaction to energy prices that have spiked because of Chinese and Indian demand).

But are her supporters ever going to return to the Democratic party? Since the Florida/Michigan compromise I've been reading some really bitter comments from Clinton supporters.  That may have serious consequences for Obama come election time.  Bloody Hillary.  We all know and she knew she was fucked over two months ago and yet she wouldn't give up.  Now I'm worried that her greed has caused an unrepairable schism in the Democratic Party.

I sincerely hope you are right.

I'm playing with a AMD3200+, 2GB RAM, and 8800GT.

I'm running it on my 22 inch widescreen at HIGH, with no shadows, and some of the view distances turned down.

I deleted the cache files, and I'm getting around 40-50fps in most areas.  It takes a second to load everything when the game first starts.. but after that it's smooth.

Is that roughly equivalent to my laptop?   The worse thing about having bought this XPS a couple years ago is trying to figure out how the power translates.

So I have an excuse not to play this game, right?

Surely it will not run well on a

Pentium M 2.26 GHz
2 GB RAM
GeForce Go 7800 GTX

Right?    Right?

STOP IT.    I don't want to be tempted into buying this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm trying to hold out for Warhammer which I suspect everyone will flock to from here after release.

I love you guys....

But "The Wanderers" is the most appropriate name for this guild that could ever been devised.    You guys hang around in a game in mass numbers for 60 days and then numbers dwindle to a fraction of their former glory seemingly overnight.

And I could throw a carebear moniker in there too but I wont.  slywink

Yet you did throw a carebear moniker in...

Carebear is a term that needs to die.

Spoken like a true carebear.    Give me a hug....    Fabulous
