Chafee/Huntsman 2016

Honorary Campaign Co-Chairs:
Michael Bloomberg
Angus King
Colin Powell
Christine Todd Whitman

Huntsman would have nothing to do with a loser like Chafee.

Nor would dear Bloomie or anyone else on that list, for that matter.

Once again, a title with a quote that's not actually a quote.

I would like the CRs endorsement, if they would see it fit, for my re-election later this Summer.

If said person lived about twenty five years ago he'd be a solid Republican.

Now, not so sure.  Depends on the area he lives in.  I imagine, given the image and reputation, he probably votes whatever gets him laid (since there is no longer as much of a financial stake).

Then Democrat.

I say this from experience: white Texan suburbanites are the scum of the Earth and need to be rounded up and put in camps.

You'll go first?

Incompetent. 3 months on and the guy has done exactly what over the first 100 days?

A better question to ask is 'What could he have done given the circumstances?'

Otherwise I'm a bit Zhou Enlai wrt The French Revolution on this question.

Of course, Zhou was actually talking about May 1968 in the case in question, but point taken nevertheless.

I'm assuming that we can't leave the Bronx and can't live in Riverdale or whatnot.

Maybe this will be the start of French style "overseas constituencies".

Gibraltar is far too small to be a constituency, no?

I wish Protestantism had been stamped out Sad

Don't we all!

Modern church buildings look modern inside too which is more cool. Like this one that resembles a strip club complete with no overhead lighting, just colored strobes.

Even by your standards, this is excessive.

Sorry, should have clarified: Fifa releases for the U.S. domestic market its own biopic, featuring Sepp Blatter as a corruption fighting, egalitarian super benevolent freedom fighter.

It grossed something like $960 in its opening weekend.

Connecticut is a very winnable state for Republicans if they don't nominate clueless Greenwich millionaires like Tom Foley.

But surely clueless Greenwich millionaires are our primary demographic in Connecticut, no?

Seeing that there is a vacancy in our region's Senate seat, and Speaker Turkisblau is presently running unopposed, I hereby appoint Turkisblau to the Pacific Senate seat.

To fill the resulting vacancy in the Legislative Council, I appoint Antonio V.

The PP, it has occurred to me watching these elections, must be the worst major centre-right party in Europe. Possibly worse than the GOP. How can they have the gall to compare anyone to dictators when their party was founded by a member of Franco's cabinet, their rhetoric remains unchanged from the 30's and their internal party democracy is about as flourishing as North Korea's?

There is a reason the Francoist parties don't get much of the vote.

Children should have the surname of their mothers unless the mother has opted to take her husband's surname.

Huh

Where do I get to live in Nigeria?

The Royal Palace naturally (and if you'll buy that, I'll throw in a small bonus to woo you further)

This might be a bit much: https://vimeo.com/43598306

I worked in the Bronx for a summer, and I'd say... Nigeria.
3195  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Republican Conservative Base Shrinks on: June 06, 2015, 11:40:39 am
That's honestly surprising. Even more surprising is that a quarter of Republicans have a positive view of socialism.

I read this a while ago. Very sad, poor Biden. The man was going places, on top of that.

As I said when I successfully sponsored a similar bill in the NE Assembly 3 years ago:

I think this is good way of rewarding our brightest students. We focus a great deal on bringing up the bottom, yet we suffer for not providing enough resources for the best and brightest, those with the potential to add to our region.

I feel the justification given then and there is just as pertinent and cogent here and now. Credit must be given to Barnes for the text here, which he contributed to through a number of amendments.

I condemn the attack on our President as a cowardly and cynical act. But I just as strongly condemn the mob attack against and lynching of his attacker as just as cynical. In a society based on the paramountcy of the rule of law, such attacks are just as grave assaults on the constitutional order as are attacks on our elected leaders.

What's this about bridging the partisan divide?
