Who the hell votes based on the order of the listing? Why would you even bother going out to vote if that is your voting strategy? Wouldn't time be better spent at home masturbating or something?

tony41454: Any group supporting traditional morals and values is a "hate group,"


Unless they're supporting the idea that women are the property of men and that marriage was a property contract like God intended, then they're not promoting traditional values and morals.

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: smitty04: Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: smitty04: No Democrat could win in Tennessee.

Agrees

Had Gore won Tennessee, he would have been president.

Kick in the teeth when you can't win your own home state though.


Switching his position on abortion (as Bill Bradley pointed out) and the way he completely mishandled his family's property near Nashville did him in. Abused tenants with standing sewage and lakes turned copper green from zinc waste do not make good for campaign PR.

I wonder how many traditional marriage people are aware of some of the other traditional marriage arrangements from the Old Testament, like this one:

A levirate marriage (Hebrew: yibbum) is mandated by Deuteronomy 25:5-6 of the Hebrew Bible and obliges a brother to marry the widow of his childless deceased brother, with the firstborn child being treated as that of the deceased brother, (see also Genesis 38:8) which renders the child the heir of the deceased brother and not the genetic father. There is another provision known as halizah (Deuteronomy 25:9-10), which explains that if a man refuses to carry out this 'duty,' the woman must spit on the ground in front of him, take one of his shoes, and the others in the town must always call him 'the one without a shoe'. While this provision implies that a brother may opt out of Levirate marriage, there is no provision in the Books of Moses for the widow to do so. However, this does not mean the widow is unable to opt out.

It simply means that he was raised among yahoos. Kind of like being raised among wolves, but with less fur. About the same on the butthole sniffing though. So he's got that going for him. Which is nice.

Best thing I ever read about Hotair Gore was here on Fark when he was getting divorced. "Gore concedes erection." Still gives me the lulz every time I think about it.

meat0918: smitty04: Paris1127: It's the 2010 South Carolina Senate race all over again... But instead of accidentally nominating an idiot, Tennessee accidentally nominated a batshiat insane idiot...

It was a none of the above vote. The Democrats threw religion under the bus sided with the first amendment and the voters were pissed.

I think that is actually what happened, but go ahead, feel persecuted.


364,000 Democrats still voted for Alvin Greene in the general election solely because he had a 'D' after his name. It certainly wasn't because he was a charismatic candidate full of great ideas.

... IT'S TENNESSEE.


Were you trying to get someone to make a Tennessee William(s) joke? If so, I could have something for you tomorrow maybe.

GhostFish: Via the Tennessean, the Tennessee Democratic party has condemned Clayton, saying in a statement that he is "associated with a known hate group" (a reference to Public Advocate of the United States), and blaming his victory on the fact that his name appeared first on the ballot.

That seems like a plausible explanation, but why are primary voters so uninformed? I'd think that they would be more inclined to actually know just who it is that they're selecting to represent them and their party.


Seriously, it's 2012.

I absentee ballot voted in my primary and the complete LACK of (decent) information via internet on at least a third of the candidates was ASTOUNDING.

And when I go to the polls I'm usually the only person in line with a printed ballot, my took-a-half-hour chosen candidates highlighted.

Hey, I tried to email you with an answer to your question about data gathering in rushed environments from about a week ago, but it told me the address was not real.


Huh. Weird, I just checked it.

tony41454: Any group supporting traditional morals and values is a "hate group," while any group supporting the murder of babies and men with men committing horrible acts is "normal." God help us all.


If your "traditional morals" are to hate your neighbours for an assortment of reasons, then a group would be a hate group.

If your "traditional morals" are to love thy neighbour, then a group is probably a Christian group.


Hey, you know that long list of sins in Leviticus, including the most important one of no homosexuality? Leviticus 19:16-18, and Leviticus 19:33, also in there. "Do not spread slander, do nothing that endangers your neighbour. Do not hate a fellow Israelite, rebuke your neighbour frankly only so you aren't complicit in their activities. Do not seek revenge, do not bear a grudge, love your neighbour as yourself.... When a foreigner resides among you, do not mistreat them. They must be treated as you would treat yourself; remember your slavery in Egypt."

Of course, unlike the no homosexuality law one in Leviticus, this actually gets repeated in the New Testament. "What are the most important commandments? Love God, love your neighbour", Matthew 22:36-40.

It's up to you. Which is "traditional morals"? Hating a sinner, or loving those around you and living in peace?

smitty04:

Some see it as an attack on religion, others see it as separating religion from politics. People in Tennessee see it as an attack, Residents of Memphis will vote Democratic even if a yellow dog was on the ticket. Most people in Tennessee wish that the Mississippi river would change course and place Memphis in a different state.


Actually, people i know in East Tennessee refer to the entire city of Memphis as 'Memphis, Arkansas'.

/ possibly because you can drive to Canada quicker from Knoxville than you can drive to Memphis from Knoxville
// if you drive to Memphis from Knoxville in the daytime, the sun is your eyes the entire time and you have a terrible headache by the time you get there

I wonder what Mr. Clayton uses as a screen name on GLP?

(that's where i've read all this, before)

/ i won't go look because i was banned for being snotty to trinity and i'm still mad about it
// do the feds monitor Fark? am i being monitored??

What would be humorous/suck would be if he won. Like we need more Blue Dogs in the Senate. Ugh

I love all the vicious rhetoric libs use. "Homophobic" and "hate" are their favorites lately. The "hate" word is especially good because they can start throwing around the hate laws soon as a cudgel to make people change their views.

I think both sides should get to play that game. So - let's label Libs and homosexuals as Christian-phobic, anti-conservative hate mongers. Ahh - yes. I see why this is so fun.

luidprand: As a Knoxvillian, I blame Memphis. Of course, it's always safest to blame Memphis.

"What's the bad part of Memphis called?" "Memphis."

/I think if, after her two terms as mayor of Knoxville are up, our little latina Madeline Rogero could be the first Dem who wins at the state level without being a wholly evil, corrupt, bastard.
//She's pocket size.
///Ned McWhirter, Jim Sasser, and their machine did too much damage to the TN Dems for far too long.


I resent that remark, good sir. There are plenty of bad parts of Memphis *outside* our city limits, too!
