It's just regular white sandwich bread and deli ham with mustard and a slice of American cheese.

Hyper-processed white bread and huge amounts of sugar.
2  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: Baker pulls ahead in Massachusetts on: August 31, 2014, 11:21:15 pm
lol

They are polling Massachusetts, right?
Masschusetts is no stranger to electing republicans. Of the last five governors, only 1 (Deval Patrick) was a democrat.

Still leaving this at Lean D. I'd like to see Suffolk, Purple Strategies, or PPP.


I realize that. But considering the republican types of governors that the Northeast used to elect are gone, they should be going overwhelmingly D, even if Baker is a good candidate and Coakley is a bad one.

I know it's treated as gospel, but those types of Republicans are NOT gone.  Period.

Would be good if they could emerge from their exile and save the GOP from itself.

But on topic... it's a weird poll. While I could believe that Coakley could lose, there is a lot that makes very little sense to me. 18% undecided? C'mon.

Bushie, ice cream is bad for you. It makes me sad too.

Yeah, I guess it is.  I know it is calorie-laden.  It is a good source of calcium, but that's probably the only benefit.  It is heart-breaking.  Sad

This is what is always going to let you down... you consider changing habits as being a punishment. Not realising that you're adding years to your life, increasing the quality of that life. Therefore giving yourself 'treats' is just a pathway. You don't have the will-power to just have a 'little wafer'.

Also, you need to talk to your parents et al - you cannot do this if you're constantly eating with them and not supporting you in changing your habits.

Oklahoma is usually 40th and below in educational outcomes ...

We only have one Top 100 College (University of Tulsa), so that makes sense.

Well that goes from kindergarten, elementary and high school...


I assume the bridge was closer to New York City.

Ah, so you don't know anything about the case.  Makes perfect sense now.

I just don't know New Jersey that well.

Ah, just another case of Bushie mindlessly defending something he likes, without reading up on the circumstances...

I wish I'd seen the original post, because I imagine I would've agreed with all of it. The guy has never really known what he was doing. Should've waited a few cycles. He could've been good.

Oh Hagrid...

I think we need to break down the bastions a bit - I support three regions... still opposed to bicameralism.

The SoEA is not obliged to sit by and watch clearly unconstitutional acts happen. It's not like the timing is unimportant for God's sake.

I'd recommend to the Attorney-General, that he consider the severity of his accusations against his Cabinet colleague and a former president. As well as the consequences of such a cavalier attitude in the current atmosphere.

As Chair of the TPP and someone who spent some time in the IRC, suggestions of some kind of "broad centre-left conspiracy" are ridiculous.

Seriously... when is this nonsense going to stop?
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Nobody noticed, but Hillary Clinton made the boldest comments on Ferguson/race on: August 30, 2014, 02:53:32 am
Civil rights are going to be a campaign issue for her I think.
That would be the smart move to make.
It would be the RIGHT move, but I'm not convinced at all that it would be the politically smart move. The minority vote is already in her pocket and it might alienate white working class voters who might otherwise be more inclined to vote for her than Obama.

However, it is DEFINITELY the smart move for Rand Paul given that he is a republican who cannot be labeled as a tree-hugging librul.

I don't think they're as concerned when it's a white person talking about civil rights.

A good leader is supposed to worry more than his people. It's time for some f** action, man. Put on the pants.

I'm sure you've considered the courses of action and know what he should have done.

Eras aren't decades and cultural markers don't fit within parameters like decades.

... I wasn't aware this was news.

Unlike some Australians who needed to keep their mouths shut... I don't have a strong view on this.

But I think this goes down 55-45... my gut feel is that people who are undecided now and vote will likely side with the status quo.

We already have some of the lowest energy prices in the word. Even with Atlasia's modest carbon tax, these prices do not fully reflect the social costs associated with burning fossil fuels.

Reducing energy prices across the board encourages waste and discourages conservation. Lower per unit prices should not be a goal of our energy policy.


Those carbon taxes are turned into higher prices. In a sense forcing conservation. That is not the governments place.

Then whose is it?

Bushie, you enjoy sports so much. Have you ever considered playing anything? There are plenty of adult recreational leagues out there.

... I think there are several steps before that should be entertained. How about walking?

52 hours through Monday including last night and 2 baseball games on Monday.

22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Cris Plan - 5 Regions and Bicameralism on: August 28, 2014, 06:53:53 am
When I was Gov of the Mideast, there was no regional "government" outside of the Governor and Lt Gov. Any legislation came from either my head, or the public. They were then voted on by the public to become law.

There would be tiny, tiny votes - 7-10 votes max. I became Governor because the existing Gov disappeared and no one else wanted the job.

The other thing that happened was that all the Governors got together to determine electoral districts based on population and not too close existing regional boundaries.

Mind you - the period you speak of was generally more active, it was also easily the height of zombie recruitment. Something that inflates numbers but doesn't equal long, even medium term activity.
23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Cris Plan - 5 Regions and Bicameralism on: August 28, 2014, 04:48:10 am
Or maybe it's just all of us not doing our share to draw people into the game and keep them interested.

I don't disagree, but there is a structural flaw that is kind of begging to be exposed time and time again.
24  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Cris Plan - 5 Regions and Bicameralism on: August 28, 2014, 03:44:01 am
For the record - I support consolidation but think bicameralism is a big mistake. It provides a fix to some issues - but creates new ones.

The problem is not, from my view, the Federal sphere. It's the regions.
