This man also went on to say in the same interview that President Trump "taught him everything he knows" about politics. So.......yeah.

Like, are there jocks and cheerleaders walking round hallways in full gear? Do you attend big rallys when the school football team are having their big game? Etc

No and sort of.

We had pep rallies, but not for any specific teams (primarily because our football team was terrible) but I think I only rarely saw cheerleaders walking around in their full uniforms.

If I'm interpreting the ballot correctly, the name change wouldn't affect the Northern Constitution, so it doesn't require a 60% threshold.  Unless all referenda must be passed with 60% support?

Article 5, Section 11 of the Constitution:

Quote
In all referendums, a “YES” vote shall be considered a vote in favor of passing the referendum and a “NO” vote shall be considered a vote against passing the referendum. Abstentions shall not affect the results of the referendum. In all cases, a simple majority of those voting “YES” or “NO” shall be required to pass the referendum.

So technically, the Constitutional amendments don't even need 60%, but rather a simple majority.

Wow. Also, his attempt to label NYT, who just keep gaining subscribers, as failing are hilarious.

Trump's attacks on the NYT is like 80% of the reason why I'm considering getting a subscription.

13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: What does it take for Pence to break up with Trump? on: February 17, 2017, 12:37:29 pm
A combination of

Nothing. Pence has absolutely no morals, principles, or shame.

and

Pence's confidence that Trump will be successfully removed form office in short order.

Why would he quit a job that he basically doesn't have to do anything and is all but guaranteed that he'll be President sometime in the next 6 years?

If my word means anything to you, I encourage you to vote for the following people for the following offices:

For Assembly, please vote for DrewMike87, Lok1999, and CXSmith. Please also consider Wolverine22 and Spark498.

     I am also concerned about the possibility of this contributing to voter fatigue, as they are asked to vote in more threads on the same number of elections.

I echo this.

I'm assuming he withdrew so he could spend more time beating his family.
Nah.  He said he was tired of the abuse.

That's not even a joke. That's Puzder's actual quote.

I think the juxtaposition was what was funny.
