1  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: Attention Tender Branson: petition to ban Rasmussen polls on: Today at 02:03:47 am
Ah, memories:

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=70670.0

I wonder if the new Christian BRTD would recant his earlier position on this.  Is banning polls from the database something that Christ would do, or would he accept all polls as his brothers and sisters?

Whatever happened to his Kenyan children anyway? It's like they've dropped off the face of the earth.

He also said back in January during the brief Allison break up period that he was concerned that dating Allison would mean the end of his Kenyan dreams.  Now that Allison is out of the picture, he's oddly said nothing about wanting to take the opportunity to move to Kenya.

Thursday and Friday last week really changed my mind.  It's hard to say what the last straw was as it was all a cumulative effect.  I guess if I were forced to name a last straw, it was that the managers knew absolutely nothing and came to work actually high on weed and were not stopped as they walked in.  Mind you, weed is still illegal in Oklahoma and it should not be consumed before work.  I wasn't really surprised that they were high on weed as the place had absolutely no drug testing policy.  It accepted not only drug addicts, but it also accepted convicted felons.  Many of the managers and even my classmates have been incarcerated before.  I'm all for reintegration, but it still made me feel uncomfortable.

So it wasn't really about the fact that the job didn't leave you time to search for another job?  It was really about the fact that you felt uncomfortable there because there were too many street toughs?


I'm thinking Papa and Mama Bushie we're ready to make him pull the plug as soon as he told them how many blacks we're working there.

Bushie wasn't black enough for this job?  Why didn't he just show them pictures of his Kenyan children to burnish his "American-African" cred?

As shown by his 2000 campaign, I just don't think Bradley had the right personality for a presidential candidate.  People thought Gore was too aloof and professorial in his campaign?  Bradley took that to the next level.

It's funny how this is one of the polls that doesn't include Huckabee, given that he has a show on Fox News Channel.  Maybe Fox didn't want to be in the awkward position of touting a poll that had their own talent at or near the top.

Even if Perry can avoid the huge gaffes of last time, there's simply nothing about him that appeals to IA or NH. That dooms him. His campaign would already be an afterthought by the time his first winnable states in SC/FL come about.

Florida isn't an early state anymore.  They're now on Super Tuesday.

Maybe the breakup was mutual this time. Allison hasn't bashed Bushie at all on social media (unlike last time).

Or she dumped him.  Or Bushie's telling the truth about her "I'm probably going to dump you by the end of next week" statement.

13  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / The New Yorker's Biden profile on: July 29, 2014, 07:27:41 am
Here it is:

http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/07/28/biden-agenda

Quote
The longer I spent with Biden, the more I noticed how often he returns to questions of respect—in his childhood, in his father’s struggles, in the ancient slights and courtesies that Biden received on his way up. Respect is a permanent feature in political psychology (in an episode of “Veep,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus is expounding on its importance—“You know the Aretha Franklin song”—when she walks into a plate-glass door), but Biden’s traditional sensibilities elevate it to a sacred position. I concluded that, for Biden, running for President is less important than confirming that people afford him the respect of taking it seriously. In that light, Biden is unlikely to challenge Clinton if she runs, because the pain of a loss would drown out the thrill of the chase. But, if Clinton does not run, Biden probably will. When I asked John McCain, who is one of Biden’s close friends, if Biden would run without Clinton in the race, McCain said,“In a New York minute.”

Biden and Hillary Clinton have a friendship that dates to the 1992 Clinton campaign. She says that he reminds her of her husband—two folksy bootstrappers with politics in their bone marrow—and, when she reached the Senate, Biden and Clinton shared rides on Amtrak. After she delivered an impassioned endorsement for Obama and Biden at the Democratic National Convention, in 2008, Biden found her backstage, dropped to his knees in gratitude, and kissed her hand. He enthusiastically backed her selection as Secretary of State. In the Administration, they differed sharply on the use of American force; she favored a surge in Afghanistan, a mission to depose Qaddafi, and the bin Laden raid, and he opposed all three. Nevertheless, they kept a standing Tuesday breakfast at his residence, with no staff. He made a point to meet her at her car and walk her to a sunny nook off the porch. “Always the gentleman,” she wrote in “Hard Choices,” her memoir of her years in the Administration. He sometimes signed off his phone calls to her, “I love you, darling.”

Bushie, did you talk to the people at the South Bryant Campus about the CADD certificate yet?

I just want to know if it's a CAD certificate or a CADD certificate.

Which potential Clinton running mate would have maximized the chances of the Democrats winning the White House a third time in 2000?  Would any of the others have done better than Gore did IRL?

Do pizza delivery guys spend 100% of their job delivering pizzas?  If it's a slow day with deliveries, then are they ever asked to actually participate in the making of the pizzas?  Because we are talking about someone who needs assistance for spaghetti.

I liked Behr as a showrunner, but usually wasn't all that into the big arc episodes that he wrote.  The arc episodes that he *didn't* write, like "Improbable Cause"/"The Die is Cast", "In the Pale Moonlight", etc., usually turned out better.

IMHO, Peter Allan Fields was the best writer DS9 had in the early years, while Ron Moore was the best they had in the later years.  While the credits don't actually reflect this, my understanding is that Moore did an uncredited rewrite of "In the Pale Moonlight" that changed the story substantially.  The earlier draft had a completely different framing device, set up around Jake investigating Garak for a news story.

What is your goal, Bushie?  What is a job that will be good enough that you won't immediately start looking for another job?  Is the goal to get a CADD job, and any other job you take will be an interim step towards getting that CADD job?


I would ideally like to have a CAD job.  Yet, everybody requires x years of experience.  How does one gain the experience if nobody wants to give you the experience?  I'll take any office job, but I'd really like a CAD job.

OK, but that doesn't answer my question.  If you take an office job, are you going to keep looking for a CAD job in your free time (and potentially quit that office job like you just did the call center, in order to spend more time looking)?

A thought that occurred to me is that a pizza or Jimmy John's delivery job might be decent for Bushie. You can work part time with very flexible hours so he can't use the excuse of having to look for other jobs, it's mostly driving, and even he can walk up carrying that to someone's doorstep. And while the pay isn't great they can make good money with tips, my brother working at Jimmy John's delivery is probably making more than Bushie did at his last call center job with his tips included. And I don't know if Tulsa is the same but in Minneapolis many have the only qualification that you have a car and a driver's license.

As long as there's never an inch of snow, he'd be OK.

Rick-mentum.  Perry got 11% in the CNN poll, and now 12% (and tied for the lead) in this one.  I think it's his best showing in a national poll since the 2012 campaign.

I'm almost starting to think the people for banning Bushie have a point.

It's pretty obvious the only way Update will go away is banning Bushie, and Bushie is using Update as an outlet. This means he isn't actually facing up to his very severe issues. If he didn't have it he might have to actual deal with his issues instead of soaking in the attention.

...But it's going to have to happen sooner or later anyway.

Why would ending Update cause him to face up to his severe issues?  Update disappeared for several months in 2011, and nothing changed.  I don't see why people think *anything* is going to get Bushie to change.  He is who he is, and I don't see him getting better any time soon, whether he "hits rock bottom" or not.
