Franzl, I'm not going to attack and accuse because I know it's bad for me.  I'm still trying to find ways to replace it with little extra expense.  There are no restaurants anywhere close (probably a good thing).

Do Deli's exist in Oklahoma??

In the past it was option 3, with the firing of Scott and changing their methodology I think they are a bit closer to option 2, but still not sold on them.

Good Tuesday Morning!  I am awake and ready for Day 31.  Tonight, I need to make a quick run to Walmart and then I'll watch two episodes of Big Brother (Sunday and Tuesday).  No games on tonight.

Buy some dumbbells when you go to Walmart??

Lunch time!  This has been a really good first day in the new office.  I have a little more privacy than I did in the old office, but everyone is still accessible.  My boss wants me to leave at 1600, not 1700 all week because of logistics.  I may be able to work til 1700 next week.

Uh oh.......

Hey, guys, I'll pop in here for a second.  My job is going fine.  I just received a less-than-appealing 30 day eval.   I just have to go in there and change my boss's perception.  I'm just carrying on like normal.  I leave at 1630 everyday because that's when my shift ends.  Anyway, I've got to go, but don't worry about things at this point.  I'll share more tonight.

Do you read what you post??  The two sentences there just don't..  Forget it...  You really need to start being honest with yourself first and foremost.

I voted just before 9:30, I was the 2nd voter in my precinct (it could have even been entire polling place which has several precincts in one, but I believe it was for the precinct).

 I'm in South Farmingdale which is a fairly Republican portion of Nassau County.

How'd you vote (if you don't mind sharing)?

Cuomo/Hochul.  While I don't agree with Cuomo on everything I think he has done a pretty good job.  I'm not one to jump on the Primary protest candidate bandwagon unless someone really shows that they are garbage or have serious ethical issues(would have supported Lamont if I was in CT in 06, supproted Rangel's primary challenger).  I also don't really get much of the liberal opposition to Cuomo.

41  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Democrats who voted against aca in 2010 but still lost the seat. Why? on: August 26, 2014, 10:17:27 am
So going back to the original question

Did democrats lose because democrats didn't come out and vote for them?

In some cases that might have been true.  Democrats weren't as excited and they had an even sharper dropff in turnout from the General to a Midterm than usual, especially compared to the GOP turnout dropoff.

With that being said as far as ACA is concerned, I don't think it had much to do with it regardless of how they voted.  Most of those who lost and voted against ACA were from Republican leaning districts.  Considering the nature of the districts, the fact it was a midterm year and a GOP wave year it was only natural that those Dems would have been ultra vulnerable.

Good Wednesday Morning!  I had a good night's sleep and now I'm ready to begin Day 13.  This promises to be a good day.  My headache is quite low right now and I feel good.  Tonight is Week 3 of Discipleship Training at church from 1830-2000.

Dare I even ask what this is?

Nassau County, NY....progressed with the rest of the GOP.  It voted GOP every election (outside of the '64 landslide) with the GOP candidate, until '92. Since then, completely Democratic, although the '04, '08, and '12 cycles, were 53-46% for the Democratic candidate.

I'm in Nassau as well.  It swung HEAVILY Democratic during the 90's.  Went from 7 points more Republican than the nation in 1988 to 19 points more Democratic in 2000.  Pulled back quite a bit after that, but has remained a bit more Democratic than the nation.
46  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Presidential Election Trends / Re: State of the Purple States on: August 03, 2014, 04:58:28 pm
Why is everyone treating VA like a blue state? Not just here, but in lots of maps. Was Arkansas a hard state for Bush to win after Clinton won it nicely twice? The Obama wins shouldn't be a huge future reading.

While Virginia did become Democratic on the Presidential level with Obama, and he certainly helped, the signs were evident prior.  The state was trending Democratic iin the two Presidential elections prior to Obama.  Also keep in mind the Democrats have won 3 of the last 4 Governor races there, will be 4 in a row in Senate races there, swept all state wide offices there.  Not to mention the demographic changes in NOVA and the Richmond suburbs continue. 

It's absolutely trending, but consider this. Citing governor races is nothing. Until 2013, VA elected a governor opposite the dominate party. This pendulum continued with Warner, whose popularity helped Kaine in. After Obama won it comfortably, McDonnell won in a landslide, and only a scandal and a spoiler got McAuliffe in. Two popular former governors are also the senators, so of course they would win. It is an extremely purple state, and if NOVA can only take it that far, the right has reasons to be hopeful.


Governor races in itself might not mean much, but when its basically everything that is going Democratic in the state, its a bit more than  that.  The right has basically no reasons to be hopeeul in VA.  NOVA looks like it will continue to get more and more Democratic.  Not to mention, while NOVA has gotten most of the attention, it is more than just NOVA.  Suburban Richmond.  Henrico has gone from very Republican to Dem leaning, Chesterfield is still Republican, but not nearly as GOP as it once was.


Compared to National average

Henrico
1988 GOP +31.58
1992 GOP +24.03
1996 GOP +21.56
2000 GOP +12.98
2004 GOP +5.74
2008 Dem +4.95
2012 Dem +6.94

I genearlly agree with your commentary all around, though I still have some input.

You mentioned that Obama could have won the electoral college without the popular vote, but I have my suspicion that the PV favors Democrats due to their strength in urban areas which have more voters. FairVote, a supporter of the National Popular Vote as a full replacement for the electoral college, admits that Democrats are modestly favored in MSAs. OP, I don't have a strong opinion on this, but I would appreciate a little more explanation of how Obama wins the electoral vote and loses the popular vote.

While it would never be a uniorm swing, if for example Romney won the PV by somewhere around Gore's 2000 PV margin,(which was .51%) or even if he won by 1 point, Romney likely wins OH, FL & VA of the Obama states, but falls short elsewhere.  That would have still put Obama at 272.  The state that technically put Obama over 270 was Colorado, which he won by 1.5% more than he won nationally.

Bushie, it does seem like the place is legit eve without seeing much info on it good or bad.  With that being said you should have a clear idea of what will be expected out of you, the details the job entails, etc

...and on the job front, a muted congratulations.

Is this normal to find the job on Craigslist (aren't there actual employment websites?), interview and be offered a job in the period of 90 mins?

I mean, were references checked? No consideration of his technical knowledge/skill set?

Even if it is legit... it's a terribly unprofessional set up and alarm bells would be ringing.


Hopefully this is not what it means
