Is there any hypothetical candidate that could pose even the slightest threat to her?

Is this damn thing still going on?

The polls close in 45 and a half hours.

And not a minute too soon.

And I say that as an Unapologetic political Junkie.

It's been a long runoff. There was no reason for it to be two months.

Until recently Georgia runoffs were only one month after the general election (and this is still the case for state elections)

The courts however ruled that such a small delay was illegal. Federal law says that states must send finalized election ballots to overseas military voters something like 6 or 7 weeks prior to any election to federal office, which is impossible to do when a runoff election is only a month after a general election.

Georgia kept dragging its feet until the courts gave up and told the state they were moving the date for Georgia's federal election runoffs (not state, because they weren't covered in the lawsuit). The state decided on a full two month runoff period because anything shorter would mean November runoffs would occur too close to Christmas.

Interestingly, all the other states with general election runoffs meet the Federal requirements by giving overseas military voters a sort of instant runoff ballot - they vote for their preferred candidate and then rank all the others. If their candidate is eliminated, their runoff vote goes to whichever remaining candidate they ranked higher. One can only assume that Georgia does it differently due to sheer incompetence.

 Can't you people show some respect for Theresa May

She's using death to fearmonger and push for internet control, and we are supposed to shake hands and smile about it?


Did you even read his post?

Yes it's bad that she cut police funding but that was not my point. Even giving the pond scum the pretense of respect is too much for them.

learn to sarcasm buddy

Yes terrorist attacks should absolutely not be a campaign issue! It's not like a certain party leader drastically slashed police budgets when she was home secretary two years ago or that she was warned at the time by high-level police officials that it would make it more difficult for police to stop or respond to terrorist attacks. And it definitely isn't relevant that an award-winning Manchester police officer directly warned her in 2015 that her budget cuts would greatly limit the city's ability to gather intelligence to prevent potential terrorist threats - and it's certainly in no way relevant that the Manchester terrorist was reported in detail to the police on on five seperate occasions but somehow the Manchester Police were unable to use this intelligence to prevent the terrorist threat he posed!


So yes I definitely do not at all understand why anyone would make a campaign issue out of terrorist attacks because it's not like anything could have been done. Can't you people show some respect for Theresa May, and not blame her for bad events that happened after did a thing after people warned that doing the thing would make bad events more likely but she still did the thing anyway? Show some respect people geez

We believe BaconCare gives people the proper incentives to work hard and prepare for their future  by threatening them with an early preventable death if they aren't successful enough to make a six figure income. In the real world, it's survival of the fittest, and our health policy reinforces this natural process by ensuring the strongest and wealthiest among us get the extra boost they need to survive longer than even the hardiest of the poor!

On a similar note we believe the tax code should encourage people to lift themselves up by the bootstraps and become self reliant. Our economic growth proposal replaces the existing "progressive" tax system with a fully regressive income tax. For example if a person has an income of $10,000, they would be charged an 80% tax, but if they make $60,000 their tax rate would only be 20%! The more successful you are, the lower your tax should be - Atlasia needs to reward success, not punish it!

hannity is teasing a big reveal tonight.




Huge announcement tonight about Seth Rich, Trump/Russian Collusion corrupt media, the liberal effort to silence me. And my future at Fox!
https://twitter.com/seanhannity/status/867143093459570688

lol Hannity is trying to force FOX to fire him so he can get a nice $18 million parachute payment just like they had to pay O'Reilly

lmao is Kim Dotcom trying to get a pardon from the Trump administration by regurgitating their baseless alt-right conspiracy nonsense

FOX news retracted its story, Hannity is completely unhinged, and the Daily Mail's story relies on trusting that a random anonymous 4chan troll is being entirely honest, forthright, and aboveboard

beet if you're still taking this seriously this is your worst Chicken Little act yet, even worse than the time you thought we were all about to die from Fukushima radiation just because you found a fake image of radioactive clouds over the Pacific

I just found this poll it's old and a google survey but is it any good

https://surveys.google.com/reporting/survey?survey=fotq254zv734n2hrx76hgxtbjm

May 8-9th

Quist: 34.5%
Gianforte: 29.8%
Libertarian: 6.8%
not voting 28.9%

of course the error bars are like ten points wide

I'm about ready for the 25th to be invoked.

Do you think you have half of the Cabinet, plus two thirds of both houses of Congress?

I don't think they're in 25th territory. Remember which cabinet this is.

Tillerson
Mnuchin
Mattis
Sessions
Zinke
Perdue
Ross
Acosta
Price
Carson
Chao
Perry
DeVos
Shulkin
Kelly


Find a group of half of those who would be willing to cross Trump on this.

don't forget Trump can fire any member of the Cabinet at will!

For clarification muon - what you're saying is that the sun will be 99% covered where I'm at right now in the NE ATL exurbs, yes? And In the vicinity of the Nantahala National Forest I will "steal home base"? Or are you saying that no matter where I am the best I'll get is 99% of an eclipse?

I had to go to the DMV today and I was able to change the address of my voting location on the same form I used to request a new license (I lost it and had also been putting off changing it to my new address anyway). Very useful!

What is your favorite food to put bacon on?

asparagus is actually amazing wrapped in bacon, though prosciutto tastes even better (and wraps more easily!)

Do you understand muon2's question?  If you do explain it to me.  Tongue

There's a total solar eclipse cutting across the country in August! I don't live quite at the spot where the sun will go entirely behind the moon but I'll be close - here is a map of travel times to the optimum viewing range!

Would you like me to help Grumps with a simple analogy?

By all means! Tongue

If you are still where you were three years ago, you will be in the area where the moon will eclipse 98.5% of the sun on Aug 21. You have to go at least to Carnesville, Royston, or Baldwin to get to 100% (and that would be a very brief 100% at the edge of totality). Do you plan to go the extra distance to catch the total eclipse?

I've moved since then but I still live in the vicinity, fortunately! I do indeed have tentative plans to take a day trip (or possibly go camping) up in the Nantahala National Forest. We'll try to be as close as possible to the line of maximum viewing time - I'm very excited!
