  1. Massachusetts has a ballot question for it this year, and most people seem to support it. But it doesn't extend to Presidential elections...
  2. Humans also don't need to eat meat to maintain their nutrition, so I view both as a wrong (I'm a hypocrite though - I eat meat). And I would probably say killing livestock for meat is worse than hunting since animals that are hunted at least get to live a free life until they die. I always feel guilty about eating beef or poultry since these animals were raised for the sole purpose of being killed and eaten.
  3. I mean, he's not even a journalist, he's a hacker who makes data breaches and insecurity known to people for ethical reasons. He also hacked Trump's account four years ago.
  4. Actually it's the incoming delegations. That's why Congressional terms begin before Presidential terms.
  5. The voting for President done by the House is done by delegations, of which Republicans control more. So Trump would actually win, unless faithless electors sway the election before it goes to the House.
  6. I do. He's almost cool enough to make me vote for his dad.
  7. Voting has already started and it's too late to change the ballots. There'd be no easy way for Pence to run at this point.

    Yea, if I remember correctly a lot of the states Democrats won they won by huge margins, whereas Republicans won by much slimmer margins. The fact that California had two Democrats running against each other also padded their numbers.
  9. I used to love DDS Pro Basketball
  10. I disagree. If you want to vote for yourself or somebody else not on the ballot because you don't approve of any of the candidates that's perfectly valid, but voting is a civic duty.
  11. There's no doubt that Boston is racist, as the entire country is rooted in racism. I just don't think it's especially racist compared to other cities. I might say that it is about equivalent with dozens of other cities as the most racist, though.
  12. https://www.wcvb.com/article/boston-city-councilor-michelle-wu-to-run-for-mayor-next-year-marty-walsh-says/33943475# This is important to note because Walsh has long been rumored as a potential cabinet pick for Joe Biden. Additionally, Wu would be the first person who isn't a white male to become Mayor. I think she has a pretty good shot at winning even if Walsh runs for reelection, but if he doesn't, she's a shoo-in.
  13. My hometown is in suburban MA and is heavily pro-Trump, but the city I go to school in definitely does not have a ton of pro-Trump signs. I can't say there are a lot of Biden signs either, but he will no doubt win the city.
  14. I was unaware of this. I've heard the term "Native American" applied to people from the Americas but outside the United States, and assumed the term "African-American" was used the same way. Still, she has African heritage and is an American, so there really shouldn't be any question as to whether she's an African-American or not.
