Team Cody all the way, BushOK.

Not a bad pick.  I'm on Team Donny.  After him, I've got Jocasta and then Christine.

Oh man, I know you love pretty boys from New Jersey, Phil, but Cody is absolutely spineless. He looked like an absolute ***** for not putting up Caleb, just like he said he would. I could see Christine going far based on her alliances (and could even win if she flips just right), but I don't think Jocasta and Donny can last too much longer as pawns.

Personally, I like Nicole. She's not going to win, but I like her most as a person.

Here's an update for you:  After talking to Mom and Dad just now, I'm going to turn in my 3 days' notice first thing tomorrow and get started looking for a job full time.  This job is just not worth it hindering me in my job search.  They'll continue to support me in the mean time.  I am going to look primarily for non-call center jobs, but I'm going to keep my options open.  I'm going to go to church this evening here in a few minutes and then watch Big Brother, then I'll start the job search just after 20:00 tonight.

...

Udall gets 50% of whites and 72% of hispanics and only leads 51-44? Did they mix up the demographics for New Mexico with Jacksonville FL?

EDIT: 80% of the respondents for this poll were white. This makes no sense for a poll out of this state unless I'm missing something completely.

The "poll" is self-selecting, that's what you're missing. It's 80% white, because 80% of the people who decided to go through the trouble of signing up to give opinions via the YouGov website are white.

I don't know Bushie's height, someone of his weight would likely need to eat over 3,000 calories per day to maintain current weight. He's probably not being honest in his count.

YouGov isn't a real poll, it's a weird self-selected Internet opinion survey.

I told her I needed to focus on establishing myself in this job and she said she needed to focus on her health.

She broke up with you because you were getting fatter and she was getting slimmer?

I would call to cancel the order, refuse delivery of it if it comes, and dispute the charges with your credit card company as a scam.

If they actually send the book and have proof he made the order, he may be stuck, because it could be a "legitimate" purchase, albeit a really, really stupid one. If he gets what he ordered, the company didn't break any laws from what I can tell.

Just because the site sends the book and has proof doesn't mean Bushie lacks protection under his credit card's terms. Many cards have robust protections for buyers when it comes to "legitimate" purchases, and no credit card company is going to want to be associated with an obvious scam.

Could you please explain how your post is relevant to the topic?

If you don't know, you shouldn't be moderating. Paul's bill is basically US Civics 101, and this particular issue, namely the application of the Bill of Rights during quasi-war, has raged since the dawn of our republic. You shouldn't need someone to walk you through it.

so your answer is no

I appreciate the heightened level of discourse

History tells us this kind of legislation isn't a good idea, when the borders are unsecured and immigration policy is a complete mess.

We've been down this road before. If you want to be an 18th-century Republican, you have to strengthen immigration laws and be willing to deport.

Could you please explain how your post is relevant to the topic?

I know why you don't include data on states with SSM, but I think it would make the map more interesting to start including it. Just my opinion.

Brownback caused a serious schism in his own party. He let his tea party friends go to war against the establishment moderate Republicans who still have a major hold in Kansas politics. He ended a lot of peoples' careers, and now those people are now aggressively backing his opponent. That's not an easy wound to fix, and pointing his guns at the Democrat isn't nearly enough.
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: When will we see effort to address unaffordable dental care? on: July 24, 2014, 12:54:17 am
Dental insurance is tricky because you have to have a mechanism that prevents people from signing up, paying one month of premium (which often is in the $20-$40 range), getting a lot of work done, and canceling.
How does it work? I need plmy wisdom teeth out.

Most dental plans have a yearly benefits cap on claims, which can often be so low as to be the price of one root canal (or a few smaller procedures). And they seldom cover 100% of claims. It's more like having a dental discount plan that you pay for.

I've never understood why dental and vision care are separated from the rest of health care. Does the rest of the world treat them as exceptions? And at what point will my health insurance treat something like an infected tooth?

There's no such thing as a dental "emergency." Tooth problems happen slowly over months and years. There's no dental equivalent to a heart attack or cancer.

It's pretty much all preventive care - regular cleanings and x-rays. That would be like expecting your car insurance to pay for your oil change. You know you have to do it.

Of course there are such things as dental emergencies, even with regular checkups. If you get a tooth knocked out of your mouth while playing sports, that's a dental emergency. If a filling fails and becomes painfully infected between visits, that's a dental emergency.

FWIW, I was offered dental coverage when I signed up for Obamacare through Covered California.

San Diego does have a major military base, which helps make the region a bit more Republican than it likely otherwise would be.
