Hillary Clinton is too narcissistic to have any position on the political spectrum.

Is "Jim Webb" running for president not the definition of narcissism?

God is arbitrary. God is inhumane. God is unknowable.
If God is unknowable, how can you judge whether God is arbitrary?

Unknowable in the personable sense that a lot of Christians in particular profess to know a god.

EDIT: This one is a better and more realistic tool to use (at least when it comes to those that you don't have to create an account for; I don't want RealAge pounding me with never-ending emails saying "OMG You're Unhealthy As Hell" after taking the test as Bushie)

That said my virtual age was 1.5 years....

You're not going to behave yourself. I know you. You still refuse to eat vegetables. No weight loss will happen without vegetables in every meal. Sorry, friend.

He just needs to cut his total caloric intake. Bushie could drink water and take vitamins for a week or two and cut the 20 lbs. he wants to shed easy.

Yelnoc is now speaker, so let's get going!

Thanks Maxwell, I've bumped the two bills currently under consideration.

The following bills were submitted by Flo to the legislature, but now lack a sponsor. Is anyone interested in sponsoring any of these bills?

Quote
Women's Health Act
1. Women will not need a prescription for birth control after age 16
2. Women under 16 years of age will need a prescription for birth control
3. Women will not be subject to mandatory ultrasounds if they choose to abort a fetus
5. Visits to gynecologists will be covered under every health insurance plan
6. Mammograms will be covered under every health insurance plan

Quote
Taxpayer Receipt Act
1. Every fiscal year, the residents of the IDS will receive a letter stating how their tax dollars are spent.
2. The letter will detail expenses based on: Education, Higher Education, Social Services, Transportation, Justice, Economic Development, Environmental Protection, Elected Officials, Debt, Buildings, and b General Government.
3. The receipt will show how much of their taxes are spent on each subject percentage wise (ex: Jose pays $4000 in income taxes to the regional government, he pays $400 of his taxes to Higher Education, therefore, 10% of his taxes are spent on Higher Education and both are marked as such on the graph).
4. Every resident will also be sent a letter with a pie graph showing how their sales tax is used for each of the previously listed subjects (ex: 7% of the money made from sales tax goes to Economic Development and that's how it's listed on the graph).
5. The income tax receipt will show the dollars allocated to each subject based on the household income reported to the regional government the previous fiscal year.
