I just noticed that my amendment text inadvertently left out the part about life imprisonment w/o parole and solitary confinement.

One of these is one of the worst shows on television, and even one of the worst of all time. It relies mostly on nothing but shock value and trying to push the envelope of what can be shown on TV, but with no attempt to actual make it clever or get any humor out of it. It features idiotic and unlikable characters, and really vapid plots with terrible messages. Also the creators are clearly complete morons who have the maturity of probably a 13 year old at best with the type of crap they shovel on it. It only appeals to the lowest common denominator and people who are easily amused by cheap shock value and really simplistic and vapid "humor".

The other is an HBO comedy about some girls living in NYC. I vote for Girls.

When I picture bowties, I picture


A) Nation of Islam (Think Brother Mouzone from The Wire)
B) Tucker Carlson


So kind of a mixed bag.

I think of Simfan and Earl Blumenauer.

Yeah, that works.

Does 60:53 really solve the problem?  It seems like it would still ban providers from charging the uncovered portion of a procedure.   Can we just strike the whole clause?

Tough decision to leave Cleve and Adams, but I'll go Vance who seems to be quite the FF, esp in this timeline.

If 40% voted against, then a majority of Republicans surely voted against. But everyone tells there are no racists in the Republican Party!

You are the one who has been saying there are no racists in a political party.  And so long as we are basing this on 2000, the results in Jackson County alone should be enough to show that claim's absurdity.

19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NH close to becoming 19th state to abolish the death penalty on: April 18, 2014, 01:03:40 am


I applaud this movement.

Wow, that's pretty similar to the states with gay marriage.

The pattern is different in that abolition of capital punishment has been historically much more of an Upper Midwestern thing.  MI, MN, and WI, along with Maine, have all been death penalty free for over a century. Then AK and HI didn't have it when they joined the union.  The death penalty then left New England - except NH. It's still legal in the West Coast states, but moratoriums have been issued in the past few years. 

It's a shame the vote didn't go through in NH, but it seems like NH has something close to de facto abolition in any case. There haven't been any executions there in over 70 years, so I think it can be abolished altogether in the next few years, before the one person on death row now is in any danger of execution.

I was more focused on other bills, and I was thinking that the clause 28 language was just there to give the Senate a little more ability to define the duties of the positions, so I wasn't so worried about it.  I'm against having a situation where there is a department listed in the constitution while meanwhile the department named there doesn't actually exist. I think any citizen should be able to read the constitution and have a pretty good idea of the current situation as far as how the government is organized.

22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Bloomberg plans a $50 million challenge to the NRA on: April 17, 2014, 10:29:01 pm
Hi, I'm Smalltown Mcleglislator. You've proably seen the barrage of attack ads paid for NYC Mayor and his urban liberal elite. It's clear he doesn't understand how small town America relies on firearms ... Why can't he stick to his urban ...

etc. etc. etc.

Which is precisely why if you had read the article, you'd see that Bloomberg has realized the futility of the advertizing-only approach, and is trying to build up a grass-roots organization.  I doubt he'll have much success, but it should be more than his previous approach.

Is this just astroturfing?

I would love to have Ben Carson be commander in chief

But I don't know if he wants to run.
Yes Mister "Gays are Pedophiles" would be just perfect for the Oval Office, yugh.

I'm under no illusion he'd make a great president, but you don't need to make up quotes for him to say things he never said.
24  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Republican President/Democratic Congress? on: April 17, 2014, 10:03:07 pm
If the Republican President allowed the Democratic Congress a free-hand on domestic policy in return for a free-hand on defense-related and foreign policy?

So basically the Eisenhower years? Sure.

If Congressional Democrats at the time had their way Eisenhower would have approved a whole lot more in both areas.  Ike is 4th out of all the presidents in terms of number of vetoes.
25  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Dukeís Letís Put Atlasia to Work Program (Debating) on: April 17, 2014, 09:44:45 pm
I'm offering it as an amendment then.
