1  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Justice O'Connor regrets Bush v. Gore on: April 29, 2013, 11:50:22 am
Makes sense. From what I understand, O'Connor ended up really loathing the Bush administration.

Then why did she retire during his reign allowing him to appoint her successor?

Whilst I think many people will do this, I think it's a terrible thing to actually say.
It just comes across wrong.
9  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: MO: Akin could really blow this on: August 20, 2012, 10:43:15 am
(CNN) Sen. Scott Brown, the Massachusetts Republican in a tight battle for re-election, said Monday that Rep. Todd Akin ought to step aside in his bid for U.S. Senate in Missouri after Akin claimed "legitimate rape" rarely results in pregnancy.

"As a husband and father of two young women, I found Todd Akin's comments about women and rape outrageous, inappropriate and wrong," Brown wrote in a statement released by his campaign. "There is no place in our public discourse for this type of offensive thinking. Not only should he apologize, but I believe Rep. Akin's statement was so far out of bounds that he should resign the nomination for US Senate in Missouri."

Former Gov. Linda Lingle is expected to announce as soon as Tuesday that she will run in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate, sources say.

Lingle is scheduled to speak at a noon luncheon of the Sales and Marketing Executives International at the Pacific Club. The topic is how decisions made in Washington, D.C., can affect local businesses and the community.

U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and former U.S. Rep. Ed Case are the Democratic contenders to replace U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, who is not seeking another term next year.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: All 53 returning Senate Democrats sign letter in support of filibuster reform on: December 23, 2010, 09:22:38 am

Mitch McConnell are brilliant at uniting the GOP caucus to unite against a bill.
Harry Reid is not.

Ben Nelson ect are always likely to disagreee with the Dem position making it less likely that the dems can filibuster anything.

The problem is not the filibuster - it's Mitch McConnell - he's too good at uniting his caucus.

Alexander (R-TN) to vote in favour of nominee.
Announced on senate floor this morning.

July 30th, 2009 – WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the following remarks on the floor of the U.S. Senate on the nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to serve as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court:

"Mr. President, I have a statement to make about the President’s nomination of Judge Sonia Sotomayor to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

“Even though Judge Sotomayor’s political and judicial philosophy may be different than mine, especially regarding Second Amendments rights, I will vote to confirm her because she is well qualified by experience, temperament, character and intellect to serve as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.

I can't see a European country winning it after the UK in 2012.
It's been a while since the Americas have held it, so Rio or Chicago are potential.
Doha is a distinct possibility, it did run a successful Asian games, and have the middle east ever held it?

I'd hope for Doha.

I think the tax system needs to be simpler, but I'm unsure if this cut is the right way to go.
It seems very daft to get people to pay tax and then credit them back.

As long as the UK has nuclear weapons, then I don't believe that we should be telling others not to have them. We should lead by example.

We're 25/26

Not that anyone cares but..

South Tyneside Council (Labour Supermajority)

In my council ward (Fellgate (good) and Hedworth (yuk)), the Leader of Council, Paul Waggott, will probably lose his seat.

In the previous 2 cycles, both labour councillors have been booted and replaced with independents, funnily enough, the LDs don't run candidates here, which is a shame, as they could possibly pick up a few seats, the tories perform terribly badly here. It's amazing the 'newsletters' they are starting to get really nasty (for a local seat) - tit for tat stuff.

This won't change the look of the council as Labour will still maintain a large lead.

We have an Asda
Walmart bought Asda, so they changed the sign to ASDA (part of the WalMart family)
Now, somehow, the sign reads WALMART (asda)

If Stephen Hepburn votes against the bill, he loses my vote next election.
