  1. A) It hasn't happened yet, because the state has a responsibility to keep a public school open (as I understand it). In a fully privatized/voucher system, however, it very well could. If I wanted to convert the US to Scientology/a cult/Sharia Law/fundamentalist Christianity/Republican/Democrat/[insert belief of your choice here], that's how I would do it. Indoctrinating values in people as children, and surrounding them with a community that upholds those values works. B) I am by no means suggesting that the current status of public education is a good one. That doesn't mean that public education is a bad thing.
  2. You don't think that could be a problem? Say you live in a small town with only a couple of schools. A sponsor heavily invests in a couple of new schools and top of the line teachers, encouraging people to move to the new schools until the old schools are driven out, and everyone is going to these new schools. The school then, with a monopoly on education in that town, slowly adds in religion content to the core curriculum. Any new family moving will, of course, have no choice but to opt into the new school. After a while, when most of the community's parents are graduates of that school, the sponsor withdraws the money. The parents, indoctrinated in the school's teachings, are still okay with the religious teachings despite the lower quality of teachers. The sponsor then moves onto another town, and repeats the process.
  3. Trump unlike Hillary Clinton does not want to get involved in military actions. Of course nuking Iran aor North Korea if given the chance is always an option that any American President would be delighted with. Yeah, no. I very much doubt any president wants to nuke another country. And I'm pretty sure China would have something to say if we nuked N. Korea, to say nothing of the UN.
  4. Ad Hominem. Hyperbole. They're not mutually exclusive.
  5. Ok. But are you sure about that? Are you really, really sure that's what you want? I mean, it's not like gun owners tend to be republicans. Or like the military, the people who have actual combat training, tend to be republicans. But, sure, democrats would win.
  6. Too much salt will do that to you.
  7. I'm a JoaT Survivor. Which means I lose. Pretty sure I've solved most of the setup, and I've got 2 99% scum and 2 70% scum. Problem is it doesn't matter. There's no world in which I live to endgame. I tell you the names of the mafia, you'll still string me endgame up b/c "What if he's actually scum?!?!?" I string you guys along giving you one name a day and I'll be NK'd. I fake a faction, and I'll probably get outed and lynched as scum. In other words, when you're a survivor, just AFK b/c no one cares about lynching any of them. GG see you guys in the dead thread to see how much I got right. Or you could just give us everything now. You revealing you've know something you just painted the target above your own freaking head. What's the point of holding onto that info now that you've gone and said that??? Saying postgame "I figured it out now. This is the point at which I solved the game." I want to win. I don't see a world in which I win. So I'll take whatever small victories I can get.
  8. Meh. I don't live to endgame and I'd just as soon see how much I'm right. The second I run out of names, or, god forbid am wrong, I get lynched. And I'll prob get vigged b/c "I'm deepwolfing it"
  9. This is only an issue if we don't win first, no? I don't have all 5 scum, and DM has a track record of killing survivors just to be safe.
  10. You're not scum. I was wrong.

  12. Also, Jesus Christ Zander. Learn to snip quotes.
  13. He did have a lot of nulls tbf so I wouldn't say it was a super in depth list but I see your point to some degree Anyone else you'd string up atp? You're in first and Lenlo isn't that close of a second Not really. I need to go back and reread some people in the morning, but I think Lenlo's the way to go atp. There's a few things that are definitely striking me as odd that I haven't commented on. I'll grab those in the morning too.
  14. There's some people who are going to pretty much afk D1 no matter what, and there's not a lot to be done about it. Lenlo's not one of those people. The games we've been town together, my head's been in pretty much the same place as his. He's one of the few player I feel like I can confidently read. So I decided to pressure his slot. Sure, I could've said pressure megacure for being afk, but I've never played with him. I felt like pressuring lenlo into content would help me resolve his slot. That's fair. Besides his read on you - were there other things in his reads that you disagreed with? Seemed like a lot of reads for the amount of content in the first 30 pages, but Len could just be better at reading spam than I am. (I'm like 70% percent sure that's the right grammar)
