  1. As it turned out, the Assassin's Creed and Burnout game series' did not produce a wonderful mash-up. Quite the contrary...

    The General 'Murican Politics Thread

    Oh hey look, as if on cue... Quelle surprise. I understand that there's a certain level of indignant outrage at Warren, from some in the indigenous community who object to DNA testing as being the sole arbiter of what constitutes a Native American and what doesn't, but she's proven that the family stories her family elders raised her on have a kernel of truth to them, and pretty well everyone she knows has gone on record stating she has never used her heritage for personal gain. No, she hasn't lived her life as a native, but she also doesn't claim to be properly Native American either - she only claims to have native blood, which she does. She's done what she needs to. Indigenous folk who are angry at her need to chill the fuck out and be happy that she's proud of her heritage, and in a position to maybe improve their lot in life.

    He can and will use it - the Pocahontas epithet is not going to disappear, and he'll use the likelihood of her indigenous ancestor being 8 generations back to make comments like, "I heard Pocahontas got tested! Yeah, she's only a thousandth Indian, but then, aren't we all? She's not a real Indian," or, "I've been hearing from many good people that she bribed the DNA test center," or maybe, "It's junk science, folks, these liberal scientists are changing our DNA, yeah it's true I looked into it, and it's they're setting fire to our heritage!" He lies on a daily basis about the most basic things in his quest to reaffirm the dominance of conservative white men, so even though Warren now has something of a shield with which she can defend herself against his attacks, I wouldn't expect his race baiting attacks to just stop.

    Of course, that system only benefits the Democrats when they're in office. When they inevitably get booted out by the electorate, the GOP suddenly has a means of ramming their agenda home with far, far less resistance (if any) from the judiciary. I seems, from my perspective, to be a very dangerous path to go down.

    I don't like the GOP keeping the Senate, but I don't see them losing it either. I'll have to be happy with the House flipping. The race to watch for the Senate, though, will be Beto O'Rourke vs Ted Cruz - though I'll be keeping an eye on Heitkamp too, though with most forms of Native American IDs now being rejected due to not having a home address on them, I expect she'll lose. In similar news, apparently Indiana has struck over 400,000 voters from the rolls, in violation of a court order. The only way the GOP can win is by cheating, and boy howdy are they going at it this time... The scariest part of Trump losing in 2020 is the likelihood that he'll run again in every general election until he dies, or him rejecting the election results outright. He won't be able to fathom the idea that he could lose, after he won before.

    That's a state level issue, but you never know, they might be able to place some limits on it. I'm more concerned about re-establishing net neutrality at this point.

    Many of those who don't get IDs are those who live in cities, who utilize their public transportation infrastructures and have neither the need nor the money to get a proper ID. Are they really going to be convinced to get an ID just because some comparatively rich muckety-muck can't get on a plane?

    There's a quote from the era of the Washington/Adams/Jefferson presidencies, which I can't quite remember, but it goes along the lines: Political plants certainly grow well in the shade. I can't see her being done with politics yet, she's probably at the end of her rope right now, and may see a benefit to her long-term goals in ending her time in the White House.

    To add to this: Between now and Nov. 6th, GOP enthusiasm, which was really ginned up in response to Kavanaugh's razor thin and bat-shit crazy confirmation, is likely to recede somewhat with the glow of their "victory." I'm not sure I see Democratic enthusiasm heading down, particularly given Trump's propensity for gloating (he has now taken to assaulting Dr. Ford directly by calling her claims a Democratic hoax). If anything, I see Democratic enthusiasm going up, not down.

    Ginsburg will for certain be retiring between 2020 and 2024, IIRC - she made her intention known not too long ago. I believe she's probably waiting and hoping for a Democratic victory in the next general election.

      Maybe he just wanted to look at a wall while he waits or has a fear of those metal doors? Some people aren't comfy using elevators unless they have to. Silly for the OP to notice and write it down though.

      (ResetERA has those threads and replies fairly often that are either silly, facepalm worthy, lies/opinions to make out as facts or hyperbolic, the latter a lot more)
