8. Most boring progressive in the world supports Hillary Clinton. Why am I not surprised?
2. Vox is a Neocohen rag. Trump is a fucking genius compared to this idiot Jew.
1. Don’t read the article; look at the comments (NYT on trade). This is why Trump is winning.
8. Five myths about Cuba. Interesting.
Earlier this year, Pence also sided with religious conservatives in the debate over expanding civil rights protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Hoosiers. Thursday’s actions saw the governor again taking a hard conservative line — this time on abortion.
The controversial and potentially unconstitutional measure further restricts abortion in Indiana — already one of the most restrictive states in the nation. It does so by prohibiting a woman from seeking an abortion solely because her fetus could be born with a disability such as Down syndrome. It also restricts a woman from terminating her pregnancy solely because of the gender or race of the fetus.
Sounds to me like “epic stupid”. Disabilities and unfavorable race or gender are among the best reasons for abortion. Indiana should not seek to emulate India here.
Of course, I 100% support North Carolina’s recent bill to stave off its tide of poz.
See here for pictures of random supporters of Presidential candidates. The Berniebro stereotype is eerily real, with the men mostly being bulky and bearded.
I have often wondered how Hillary Clinton won the Massachusetts primary. Massachusetts’s demographics aren’t too different from those of Oklahoma (which had the same type of Democratic primary as Massachusetts, though in Oklahoma independents were not allowed to vote in the GOP primary), and, if anything, non-Asian minorities comprise a greater share of Oklahoma Democratic voters than they do of Massachusetts Democratic voters. The answer was mostly (but not entirely) that the Clinton vote was strongly (but by no means perfectly) correlated with population density, with people living in places with a larger population density tending to vote for Clinton:
The obvious exceptions are towns like Greenfield (72% Sanders), a town with a more elderly, politically independent, white, and poor population than the rest of Massachusetts, Salem (56% Sanders), a somewhat lower-income White-majority town, and Maynard (53% Sanders), a strongly white middle-class area. Other exceptions include super-rich suburbs like Lincoln (60% Clinton), which, not coincidentally, were some of the only places in Massachusetts to vote for Kasich in place of the vulgarian. Indeed, every place in Massachusetts Kasich won other than Amherst (college town; strongly Democratic, median age 22) and Mount Washington (a 100% White negligibly-settled area) went for Billary. The most Clinton-leaning places in Massachusetts were Lawrence (heavily Hispanic), Wellesley (well-educated rich suburb, one of the most anti-Trump places in Massachusetts), and Weston (rich suburb, went for Kasich).
So Massachusetts went for Clinton instead of Sanders because it was too filled with rich suburban elitists and urban people. Oklahoma went for Sanders instead of Clinton because independents were not allowed to vote for the vulgarian and because there were nowhere near enough rich suburban elitists and urban people in Oklahoma to swing the primary election to Clinton.
1. 47.3%: the share of votes Mitt Romney received in the Arizona primary
2. 47.1%: the share of votes Donald Trump received in the Arizona primary (with a far greater share of early votes being cast for candidates who suspended their campaigns by primary day this time around).
3. Despite this, Trump trails Romney in the delegate count due to him losing Texas
