UKIP and TUV have a connection, which would make a connection to the DUP very unlikely. (TUV split from the DUP as a more extreme Protestant party.)

Really, European party groups are perhaps the least important issue in the Northern Ireland elections. Judging by party groups, you would think Northern Ireland is a mix of extreme socialists and Eurosceptics. It's not really.

I wish NI21 (which I would consider voting for if I lived there) would join EPP just so there would be a party in the UK affiliated with Europe's largest party

Duncan Hunter 2.0

More like Thaddeus McCotter 2.0

Darrell Issa is Duncan Hunter 2.0.

Wouldn't he be Bob Dornan 3.0?

Excellent maps!  Here is a Shelby County TN map I did a while back:

I think that if it ever came to a vote in Congress, this issue would be yet another one where the Republican/conservative instinct to support their yearning to be apart of our Union would be thwarted by the activist fringe.  I hope that some day we can welcome Puerto Rico with open arms and add another star to our glorious flag.
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Direct TV drops the Weather Channel in negotiations standoffs on: January 14, 2014, 11:00:01 pm
Maybe the Weather Channel should create a "Weather Channel 2" to cover actual weather, just as MTV2 (then 3 and so on) and H2 were created to show actual music and history programming.
10  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Do you believe in Evolution/Creationism? on: January 12, 2014, 07:49:34 pm
Option 3; I believe that evolution is the means by which God created us, but I'm still not comfortable teaching youths about natural selection without some moral context.

12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Fluoridated Water on: January 12, 2014, 11:14:50 am

If we were having this discussion 50 years ago, I would probably side with the anti-fluoride folks because I can understand not wanting an additive put in your water.  However, the evidence has mounted that fluoride is safe and a tremendous benefit to dental health. 

Some dentists are now starting to see more cavities and dental problems in children because their parents are giving them non fluoridated bottled water (probably not realizing that fluoridated bottled water is an option).
13  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Traditional Family Faith on: December 29, 2013, 01:05:38 am
My father was apathetic on religion, though if he had to pick one it would have been mainline protestant.  His family was Methodist, but what little remains of the family are spread over several denominations.  My mother and her family are Lutheran.  I remember hearing that there is a Jewish link somewhere in my mother's ancestry, but I don't know which ancestor.

Which Europarty will NEOS join?  EPP?  ALDE?
16  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Mandela Funeral sign language interpreter was a fake on: December 12, 2013, 08:22:35 am
I'd support the DA if I were South African, but the ANC would not even make the top 10 list of incompetent governments.  Zuma and Mbeki may not hold a candle to Mandela in terms of leadership abilities, but things in SA could have been a whole lot worse under the circumstances.

National, to support De Klerk's dismantling of apartheid.

No clue.  Voted for Hafer in this poll, although if she was really pro-choice, then I'm not all that thrilled about it.

Tennessee: Shelby (Memphis)

On behalf of the people of the greatest county ever, we thank you Smiley
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Scottish independence referendum, 2014 on: December 08, 2013, 06:57:25 pm

There is simply no reason for it.  Scots are not "taxed without representation", they are not  discriminated against, and they have ample control over their own affairs.

Majority, but only because in this particular case the protesters were a reasonable distance from the funeral.

I usually side with First Amendment advocates on most issues, but I do believe that someone's rights to free speech ends at the point that it infringes on some else's fundamental rights.  The family of a slain soldier - or anyone for that matter - should have a reasonable expectation that their private burial service would not be disrupted by a protest that is audible or exceedingly visible at the location of the service.
