    What? Humans are not the sun. Humans are not wild animals incapable of reason. You don't take something that isn't yours. It is stealing. Stealing is wrong. It is very easy to not steal. You just don't do it. I wear a somewhat high end watch. If I set it down and someone took it, I feel like Casino captures the right moral tone on how I would like to see the situation handled in my ideal society.

    I think just the opposite. I'm morally okay with shooting people who steal cars. I don't think it is a good idea only because of the risk of going to jail.

    Like you (and I) said in the thread last year it wasn't a good strategy going after Trump. I said in the other thread I thought he might run for the LP nomination. Johnson actually asked him as his first choice over Weld to be the VP. Given the tack Sanford took, that seems more likely now. But it is ridiculous Fitnews calling Sanford a shill for the Republican establishment. I'm pretty sure Paul Ryan and Boehner don't agree. FWIW 1006731469946007552

    All of that stuff was brought up when he ran against Stephen Colbert's sister. He spent less on travel than any of his predecessors. His being frugal personally and in office is the one thing he is most known for. He even turned down stimulus money. http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/politics-government/article24528985.html Instead of making minimum wage or whatever a governor makes, they should have paid him $5-$10 million a year and made him governor for life.

    1. Here you go. Here he is criticizing withdrawal from TPP. First answer. Second paragraph https://www.weeklystandard.com/haley-byrd/sanford-tariffs-are-an-experiment-with-stupidity 2. He was one of five Republicans to vote against funding for the wall regardless of what he said. Sanford has sensible immigration views similar to Ron Paul's. There is nothing that will please left wing immigration groups. They only want Democratic voters.

    Trade. Immigration. Spending bill with the wall. Not to hard to find. Google harder. Ummm... Yeah. So.... I have no idea what prompted that statement but Rand has opposed Trump at more potential political cost than ANY other Republican in Congress. That isn't my opinion. That is fact. A non-debatable statement. He just frames his opposition in way where he is on Trump's side opposing his bad advisors. Look at where the dot is with Rand. https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/congress-trump-score/

    Because they are fucking stupid. It is as simple as that. They think a moderate is someone who criticizes the party. They don't differentiate between Mitt Romney and Mark Sanford. You could probably make a legit case that Sanford is one of the ten most conservative members in the history of Congress.

    This is quite a bit different. Sanford has continuously attacked Trump and the whole campaign by Sanford's opponent was that he was an obstacle for Trump. And it was already have an effect in that district. Yes. Just like Ron Paul had his own little scandals. I tend to think of their impeccable voting records instead because that's what actually matters.

    I think Brett has been a really good poster and worthy of support. I don't know the financial situations of the people posting here, but I feel like it is ridiculous for him to not easily raise $1000 with all the people who visit here on a daily basis. This is the kind of race where there could be a tangible benefit and it is clear he has made the effort.

    Here is also a fact. Every single Scandanavian country has a higher suicide rate that the United States. The suicide rates in the Scandavian countries were multiples higher than the US in the 70s when those governments were at the their most left wing. Perhaps they aren't inclusive enough.

    "Why Conservatives Are Happier Than Liberals" https://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/08/opinion/sunday/conservatives-are-happier-and-extremists-are-happiest-of-all.html My best guess is that liberals are more unhappy becomes they tend not to confront the world as it actually exists and are less likely to work within the bounds of nature and reality. Whereas conservatives probably are more accepting of the world and try to make the most of it.

    Interesting note, Keynes himself hated inflation. And he was consistent about that from his early life until he spoke to Hayek right before he died. People who called themselves Keynesians don't have the same aversion. https://cafehayek.com/2009/06/keynes-on-inflation.html https://www.richmondfed.org/~/media/richmondfedorg/publications/research/economic_review/1981/pdf/er670101.pdf

    Klay Thompson is first ballot hall of famer. He would average 25-28 on the majority of NBA teams. He does pretty much everything well. Korver can't create his own shot and he is one of the worst defenders in the NBA. There is no team or system where Korver could have ever been a 20 point scorer. I like Korver. He hustles. Seems like a good guy. The Cavs can't really play him against the other team's starters because he gets torched on defense. Korver was a late second round pick for a reason. He got max out of his abilities.

    Bill is the only Democrat President since Grover Cleveland that I don't absolutely hate. I also agree with him that the whole Monica Lewinsky thing was nothing. Bill couldn't win because he is a radically right wing relative to the rest of his party. There are no economic centrists in that party anymore.

    Great analogy. If a woman says she only dates tall men, she is clearly discriminating. She is not judging on the content of someone's character. If she puts an ad on a dating site, how is her discrimination any different than a business owner's? It isn't. This seems like it should be obvious to everyone.

    That's interesting. I would have guessed getting a car across the Pacific Ocean would cost a lot more. I was quoted $1100 getting a car I saw on the internet from Florida to the state I live in and it had to be on truck with a bunch of other cars.

    "A new study says the American automobile industry will lose 195,000 jobs over the next three years if President Donald Trump presses forward with a plan to impose 25 percent tariffs on imported cars and auto parts." "According to the study, which was released by the D.C.-based Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE), a 25 percent tariff on automobiles and auto parts would cause production in those industries to fall by about 1.5 percent and would force the industry to shed around 1.9 percent of its American workforce. The resulting slowdown would affect more than $200 billion in U.S. exports, PIIE projects. I am not rich either. Tariffs would have directly affected me. I just bought a car made in Japan yesterday. It would have been unaffordable for me had there been a 25% tariff on it. I would have had to drive an unreliable pile of shit, union made, bailed out American car if Trump got his way. I basically do all of my shopping at Wal-Mart. Tariffs would be like $10,000 tax on me.

    Just a reminder, government subsidizing college is bullshit. My favorite analogy in this video is standing up at a sports event or concert. If everyone is sitting then standing up gives you a better view. If everyone stands you not only don't get a better view but now you have to stand whether you want to or not. College is just a signalling device and pushing everyone into college just reduces its value. It makes it so the minimum now becomes needing a college degree. The whole approach to education from kindergarten through college is terrible and it's government's fault.

    The tariff is 2.5% for imported cars. And Toyota still imports 30% of their vehicles. I suspect most are made here more because it is costly to make them in Japan and ship them here. A new Camry stickers for 23k. The import tariff would be $575. I could be wrong but I can't see 2.5% being the difference. The shipping cost dwarfs the tariff.
