I'll sponsor this if necessary.

I will as well.

What replacement do you have in mind, if not maybe distributing grants to airports to manage their own security?

That's the only solution I think is feasible, because creating a new agency probably wouldn't work here.

Setting aside an amount of money for basic screening - metal detectors, X-ray machines, maybe a few more high-security machines

It's pretty easy to get this done without having employees of the federal government be paid to essentially grope adults and children.

Most forums/websites have a "don't be a dick" clause in their rules. It's one thing to have a strong opinion, or to have a sense of humor that makes one come off as a jerk, but being an outright asshole shouldn't fly.

It's unfortunate to lose a candidate like that. In his short campaign he showed he was willling to put the effort end energy to be an active participant. Politicians with that drive are rare these days.

"It's a real shame that Adolf Hitler committed suicide. He showed a real fire for leading Germany."

We can find active players who aren't literal fascists.

How do you feel about the punk/reggae fusion genre known as ska? If you're not familiar, here are some examples of the genre:

Less Than Jake - All My Best Friends Are Metalheads

Reel Big Fish - Beer

Stacked Like Pancakes - SFDD (NSFW)

Save Ferris - Come On Eileen (Dexys Midnight Runner cover)

Streetlight Manifesto - Here's To Life

And if you feel like dancing, here's how you dance to ska (this is known as "skanking"):

Not sure if this is the right place to endorse... but here is one! Only thing I would suggest is that it might not be best to 100% eliminate sick leave and family leave, but instead enforce restrictions and regulations on it (i.e. decreasing the pay as the length of the leave time increases).

Right, because there's nothing wrong with decreasing the income of a parent caring for their newborn child. That child can quit freeloading and get a job of their own.

I wasn't talking about my personal opinion (of course mothers need maternity leave), but rather as a more moderate version of Harding's stance on the subject.

But you're still endorsing a candidate whose stance on maternity leave could be moderated to say what I said. That doesn't bother you?

13  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Have you seen the Power Rangers movie? on: March 28, 2017, 08:52:11 am
Yes and I loved it. I grew up loving the Power Rangers, though, so it was pretty much just nostalgia overdrive for me.

Didn't you think the machine they transformed to the end looked like Optimus prime

Did you not watch the original Power Rangers? Like, at all?

Like when I was 4 and Maybe 2 episodes . The only reason I went to see this movie was Logan and Get Out didn't have seats for 5 people other then in the front and my friends wanted to see power rangers then so we watched it .

The Megazord has always looked like Optimus Prime.

It's a giant fycking robot made out of vehicles. It's the same concept.

So I think it's pretty imperative that we pass this bill, as the issue itself is fairly self-explanatory. This famine is first to be declared in any part of the world in about 6 years. It is clear that the government of South Sudan does not have the resources to deal with this famine head-on. We should make it our mission to help aid these conditions as best we can in order to prevent potentially millions of starvation deaths.

Hopefully UK or Zags are in the last two teams and Zags win, but I had Louisville instead of Kentucky.

Why don't u like Oregon

This genuinely made me laugh out loud.
