Well there are a lot of undecideds in the county poll.


What about the FL-22 poll that had Obama winning only 51-45 in a district he had 57% in back in 2008. Would that correspond with the overall shift in nearby Dade? Bigger? Smaller?

Well Mason Dixon did catch Romney's big win amongst hispanics in the FL primary, unlike PPP which had Gingrich up amongst them.

Either's fine, really, but a separate bill might be a bit more appropriate depending on how significant it is.  I was surprised to go on the wiki and discover that after all these years, the Senate never got around to crafting an immigration policy.  I consider the DREAM Act a modest start.

It is Ebowed's fault. Tongue For some reason in 2007, the left got it in its head that Amnesty was a fire and forget it weapon on immigration reform. In fact dealing with those already here is only a small piece of a big pie. And direct, mass amnesty is the most counterproductive immigration policy any fool ever dreamed up.

Or maybe he was just lazy. Tongue Yea probably that. Wink I really hope he pops in here because of this post. If he does, do I win something?

I am going to wait until a different bill comes up that is more relevant.

Is that all on this?
15558  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: The 'DREAM' Act (Debating) on: October 28, 2012, 12:51:18 am
I just want the bill to have standards to ensure that immigrants work to have a successful academic life so that they won't end up trapped in poverty as a consequence of their disadvantaged starts here in Atlasia.  (Not sure if I already explained that part...)

^ This. The stated goal of the RL Dream act is the same, though certain versions are defficient, an all to common occurance of "Say one thing, do another" on immigration policy in general.

On another note, I'd advise the Senate to draw up a comprehensive plan that addresses the issue of immigration entirely, and not just one for those who are already here.  This bill may not be amnesty-related, but it still doesn't set any official immigration standards or simplify the process for potential legal migrants.

Are you suggesting that as a seperate legislative effort or as a part of this? As a seperate legislative effort, I would be willing to work on crafting parts of that.

Or for some give them $17,000 where they previously had $0. That too is the reality of the economy. Tongue

Right Wages for the Right Regions Act

1. The minimum wage established by the Living Wage Act shall be reduced to 10.50, the first wage increase authorized by the act.

2. The 12.00 wage shall remain in place for all regions, but shall no longer be the minimum, and regions shall be able to lower to the new minimum if they desire to, to better fit the realities of their economies.

3. The remainder of the Living Wage Act shall remain in effect.

Do you support the death penalty, Becca?
15572  Election Archive / 2012 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: MO: Mason-Dixon: McCaskill-Akin dead heat. on: October 27, 2012, 09:00:44 pm
I don't recall rooting for anyone in this thread. In fact I believe I stated that McCaskill will probably narrowly win. Unlike some hacks on this forum, I don't let my analysis be clouded by my personal views on a particular election. Last I checked, I was supporting the Libertarian in this race as a protest vote, and stated aggressively that Akin should have withdrawn when he had the chance to do so. But I guess you know my own personal opinions better then I do myself. Roll Eyes
15573  Election Archive / 2012 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: NC: Public Policy Polling: Another poll, another big McCrory lead on: October 27, 2012, 02:24:45 pm
Yes, but that is primarily because of the scandal regarding Goldman's time on the Wake County school board. Have they not talked about this as much in your area?

I don't psychically live in NC, so I don't get the local analysis on these races.


There will be some exceptions of course, but at least according to the consensus on NC Spin was that if McCory was in the double digits, many Republicans would be washed in. They described LG as the firewall between McCrory and the rest of the council of state and that if that goes, the council of state will see some big shifts.


I can actually see that. The Democrats should be guaranteed Cooper (obviously), Marshall and Wood though.

Yes of course, but I thought you would still be keeping tabs on local political news. Tongue
15574  Election Archive / 2012 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: NC: Public Policy Polling: Another poll, another big McCrory lead on: October 27, 2012, 02:23:38 pm
Wasn't there some kind of scandal in Wood's first year in office back in 2009? I seem to remember something about that. Most of the reviews seem to be positive. If I can clear this up before I vote on Monday/Tuesday (hopefully the storm doesn't pre-empt us), she might be the only Democrat I vote for this time around.

Were it not for McIntyre's Mediscare and bogus nonesense about outsoucing tax breaks, I might consider voting for him over Rouzer. There are things I don't like about both candidates, but it is coming down to a vote based on who I want in charge of the House at this point. McIntyre can run against illegals all he wants to, but as long as he is a Democrat in the House, he is empowering the open borders crowd on the committee chairmanships.

Yes, but that is primarily because of the scandal regarding Goldman's time on the Wake County school board. Have they not talked about this as much in your area? Apparently she had an affair with another GOP member and then voted against an assignment plan as way of breaking off the relationship. I didn't vote for her in the primary because I didn't think she had the right experience.

There will be some exceptions of course, but at least according to the consensus on NC Spin was that if McCory was in the double digits, many Republicans would be washed in. They described LG as the firewall between McCrory and the rest of the council of state and that if that goes, the council of state will see some big shifts.
