    1) he doesn't run a record label (that's Jay Z). Getting your rappers wrong. 

    He said running a record label isn't the same experience. Kanye did in fact found and run a record label and is still heavily involved with it. He wasn't getting his rappers wrong.

    Look at my Obama and MJ examples kid. Probably will go over your head 

    Yes, and it would be just as misleading to say the same thing about them. They didn't become President and pop-star out of nowhere. They were already established.

    If I said Barack Obama went from "lowly community organizer to president" you would say to I needed to say he went from "lowly community organizer to senator to President" 




    Just back away from the keyboard. Just a suggestion. 

    You were acting as if he made the leap from nothing to international rap superstar. He was a well-known producer in between. It's extremely misleading to say otherwise. It shows your extreme lack of knowledge on the subject.

    you called me "beyond stupid" which you then doubled down which is a personal attack. And yes, you do need to learn to read.


    HE STARTED AS A LOWLY PRODUCER, HOW IS THIS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND?? He did not start from "producing the Blueprint" he started work as a producer BEFORE JAY Z making beats for others that never made the cut. CONTEXT. 


    It's laughable how you can't understand this basic concept. 

    You said he went from lowly producer to rap star. Not lowly producer to producer of the Blueprint to rap star. You're acting like he went straight from the bottom to rap star. He was a mega producer in between.

    "He went from a lowly producer"  Learn to read.


    He didn't just start his career making the Blueprint. He had to work his way up. Obviously. Seriously, learn to read. 

    "Learn to read"? Personal attack much?


    And you said he went from "lowly producer" to rapper. He went from producing the fucking Blueprint to rapping. You know absolutely nothing about Kanye West or rap in general and I suggest you don't speak on it until you do.

    I mean it appears you're not familiar with Kanye or Jay Z's business ventures which is part of leadership... 

    Says the guy who called Kanye West a "lowly producer". That is laughable.

    Leadership: He went from a lowly producer to a Grammy award winning Rapper across multiple genres changing the landscape of Hip Hop near singlehandedly. After being laughed at and smeared, he pulled himself out of bankruptcy to create a fashion brand that is estimated by Bank of America in 2019 to be $3 Billion. What has he led on?! 

    Integrity: That's not the definition of integrity. What was corrupt or dishonest about him interrupting Taylor when he believed Beyonce should have won? Adding to his leadership ^, across music and fashion he was laughed at constantly but pursued his vision to amazing success. That's integrity, he never surrendered. 

    Saying Kanye West was a lowly producer is beyond stupid. He was one of the best producers in rap. Have you ever heard of The Blueprint? It's one of the best albums of all time and he helped produce it.

    I'm 60% Biden wins the electoral vote -- but about 80% sure Trump wins the bullshit he'll pull after the election.

    Yea, I'm about 60% sure Trump wins the election "fairly", and 90% sure that if Biden wins, a significant portion of votes will be invalidated which will hand the election to Trump.

    Ideal place to live? Portland, Maine, and I plan on moving there after I finish my education

    Portland's a nice city. It'd probably be near the top for my ideal places to live.

    I am a huge fan of it. It definetly could help 3rd parties win which is why I like it, just not in the way you describe. But RCV alleviates the biggest roadblock for third party support: the spoiler effect. The more voters that understand that they can vote 3rd party, guilt free of "handing the election to the greater of two evils", the more people actually will vote 3rd party.

    Massachusetts has a ballot question for it this year, and most people seem to support it. But it doesn't extend to Presidential elections...

    All apex predators hunt naturally. Humans are apex predators. If someone hunts and then eats the animal (which is the most common form of hunting nowadays in N.A.), hard for me to see much that's wrong with that, unless the animal is endangered. The number of animals killed through hunting nowadays is minuscule relative to the number that are killed as livestock.

    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.

    Twitter and the White House have denied this. Just some obscure journalist wanting 15 minutes of fame.

    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.

    No, house is controlled by Democrats so they'd pick Biden.

    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.

    If Pence has a super strong debate against Kamala, there's gonna be immense pressure on Trump to let him run as President. 

    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.

    this isn't really related to anything, but i recently noticed dems won the senate popular vote 58-38 in 2018, yet still had a net loss of two seats. 

    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.
