I find it funny that when Harty is getting shit on for stuff he says he always tries to deflect the criticism in my direction. When I'm getting shit on for the stuff I say, I don't say "but what about when Harty said this two months ago!"

Wow, Harty asked me a socialism question and the thread blew up before I could respond. I have lots of thoughts on "Bernie not changing anything in the US" and other stuff that's been said, but in attempt to not write a huge novel, I'll just keep it short with a few quick points to start us off about socialism.

First - Socialism is about 5-10% of Bernie's plan. About 90-95% of his plan has nothing to do with socialism. I understand it's easy and convenient to focus on this one part since socialism is the boogeyman!

Second - We already have a TREMENDOUS amount of socialism in this country. It's called Corporate Welfare. Safe to assume you find no problem with the taxpayers of this country paying for all this, right? : http://usuncut.com/class-war/10-corporate-welfare-programs-that-will-make-your-blood-boil/

Third - Bernie has said that we should learn from other countries and apply what they do in a way that could work for America. It's a really sad state of affairs when someone says "Let's see if we can do _____ like Denmark does." and the response is " YOU WANT TO BE EXACTLY LIKE DENMARK OR FINLAND?"

Fourth - The other forms of socialism we have in the US are seen here. Do you take part in any of this? If so, do you believe in socialism as well? Or did you want to remove each one of these things from your life, as to not be a hypocrite?

Oooh, this has the potential to be fun.

Yeah... I'm going to stay away from the pointing out Mike being racist stuff. If he doesn't know by now that he is a racist and frequently speaks that way, there's absolutely nothing anyone can do to bring it to light for him.

 

Election stuff, it is.

Maybe you should. Maybe you two should become mortal enemies and FIGHT TO THE DEATH.

Hahaha that was probably my favorite part of the debate. Rubio really looked not good when he needs to most. Really, the people who came across best were the ones who are waaaay behind. Chris Christie easily looked the best, and surprisingly, Jeb had a pretty strong showing. Trump looked like a fool, and Cruz and Carson were invisible. An entertaining show all the way through. If Christie didn't have such those dumb Republican views the rest of them have like anti-abortion stuff I think he'd looked like a more than viable candidate.

 I'm looking forward to the Mike vs. Harty feud. 

Tunelab Mania is dead and gone just like Miss Tunelab and Movie Madness and Harty's rock chick tournament.

TLM would still be here but there are no big feuds going on all the time (which is good) so there's no need for it but I suppose it could return anyways. I miss Miss TL and Movie Madness. Rock chick tournament was just ugly girls for the most part so I don't miss that at all. Worst tournament since the album covers.

Oh God, album covers. 

And what do you mean you miss Movie Madness? It wouldn't be back in season by now anyway. Movie Madness ended recently, and only because nobody voted in the damn thing. The Guest was a terrific movie that deserved to be in the finals, but that a movie that like three or four people on the entire website saw made it to the finals is a testament to how little people were voting in that tournament.

I think it would be better if we just went with popular movies. Like maybe the 32 biggest box office draws of the year. I think going by RT score or whatever makes it boring. It's why I barely participate cause it features a lot of movies I haven't seen.

But if you do that the winner (which was one of three or four movies that consistently pulled a lot of votes) wouldn't have been included at all. I don't disagree with trimming the number down but box-office would be a silly way to go about that. I think part of the problem is that while it's important to have well-received, possibly underseen movies (like The Guest) in the tournament, when the number of them is so high you're less likely to be interested in or check out a movie you haven't seen because there's twenty others you also haven't seen. The fact that business didn't pick up at all in the later rounds doesn't support this, but I think maybe too many people had lost interest by that point.

Really hoping Bernie can pull off a win tomorrow by 10-12+ points. HRC's campaign recently sent 10,000 (supposedly) staffers to NH to try to get them within 5 points, claiming the media narrative will be in her favor if she barely loses in "Bernie's backyard." 

It's been said that there might be a record breaking turnout tomorrow, for both parties, too.
