I guess I can make myself useful and speak at all these middle class events. After all, I was The People's champion for about 8 months. Wink

Ah yes, how fondly I remember those halcyon days of glory, the Golden Age of Atlasia.

To this day I shed tears of joy whenever I think upon that storied era.

Bernie Sanders is a pragmatic person.  He may run in the primary race to get his ideas out there, but he won't attack Hillary and will eventually endorse her. 

0% chance that he runs as an independent, completely out of the question.  That's right wing wishful thinking. 

He will not run.

Which would voters like better, a President with a Juris Doctor from Harvard or a President with a Juris Doctor from Yale?

Please vote and discuss.

Carson -- no experience in electoral politics.
Rubio, Perry, Santorum -- too stupid.
Ryan -- never won a statewide election.
Christie -- tarnished.
Cruz -- to radical-right.
Huckabee -- strictly a regional candidate.
Walker -- wins only if he pulls the Rust Belt to him, but can't.
Jeb Bush -- probably loses least badly.

There you have it, folks.  RNC should save its money.

Where's Mitt when we need 'im?

Just get on with the vote on the amended bill.

Let's vote on the amended version of this bill now.  If the amended version passes, then it replaces the original bill.  

Quite simple.

Playing of the same songs over and over and over and over and over to students is in fact a form of propaganda indoctrination.

So you'd support a bill to ban all songs from school?

I don't see anything wrong with preaching equality, peace and progress in school. Do you?

Mr. Speaker, get your mind beyond the songs themselves.  Although, as I have said, no matter what songs you have, they will be offensive or objectionable to certain ethnicities or faiths.

The real issue here is the high handed manner and the arrogant attitude that the Northeast government has that they presumably have the right and the authority to dictate to our schools the music they have to, indeed they are forced to listen to.

This whole concept is bizarre and just plain silly.

And by the way, we have to get rid of the original obscene monstrosity.

How anyone could dream up such an offensive bill, let alone pass it is beyond me.

The Assembly understands your passion, and resolves for repealing the original bill.

Thank you Mr. Speaker for your support in this matter.  I believe we should all be united to repeal the original bill.

That's why I'm changing the songs to something less offensive. I'll do some consultations with actual teachers and administrators, and if people are up in arms, we repeal it. But overall, I like the idea behind it and I'd like to see the general reactions to different songs before going blindly into repeal.

Governor, please clarify your statement.  You talk about repeal.  By this do you mean the original bill for repeal?  Of course, if the amended bill is passed, it will replace the original bill.

I agree Bush would be the best GOP candidate.

In the final analysis, I believe he would win the Presidency.

Eight years of Democratic administration, time for a change type of thing.

Ya gotta' love him.

George W. Bush got cosy with a man (Tony Blair) who led a party that sings The Red Flag at its conferences.



Tony Blair's coziness with U.S. Presidents does go back to Bill Clinton though.

With Webb as the nominee, the Republicans are doomed, doomed I tell ya.

 
92  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Hillary Clinton worked with Communist lawyers on: March 10, 2015, 01:09:06 am
(Wiki)

In 1971 Hillary Clinton interned at the Oakland, California, law firm of Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein. The firm was well known for its support of constitutional rights, civil liberties, and radical causes; two of its four partners were current or former Communist Party members.

Just sayin'. 

Hmmm.

Respect all.
Cherish all.
Find the good in everyone.
Do not let petty grievances and suspicions lead you into darkness.
Let the light of love shine for you and lead you into that bright sunlit land from which you will never wish to depart.

These are times of trial and times of decision.
Let us pass our trials triumphantly and let us decide to be a friend to everyone, for in the final analysis, are we not all participants in the greatest race of all, the human race?
94  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: NE3: Restoration of the Arts Amendment on: March 09, 2015, 11:28:28 pm
By that logic isn't all schooling indoctrination? We got the same christian songs pumped into us every day,yet I'm a devout atheist

Mr. Speaker, you can hardly compare the legitimate teaching of mathematics, biology, chemistry, history, political science, legitimate music classes, physical education, computer classes, English, French, Spanish, geography, health and wellness,  mechanics, home economics, etc., etc., etc., to songs hand picked by politicians to be blasted at students even though their parents may have, and many no doubt will find objectionable for their children to be forced to listen to.

As a matter of fact, this bill is just begging for children's parents to take legal action against the government for infringing on their ethnic or religious beliefs.

The original bill should obviously be overturned and this bill should be tabled.

Why purposely go wading into a swamp that we simply do not know the potential for danger?

I see no rationale or legitimate reason for legislation such as this to be even necessary or to be introduced.

Pounding the words of these songs into young ears day after day after day after day after day is in fact a form of indoctrination.

Any thinking parent would certainly object to this tactic.

The original obscene monstrosity has to be obviously overturned, but it does not have to be replaced by another bill.
