Hi.  My computer isn't working now and I have to text everything.   I will get to the leg election soon, but consider this a LOA.

I guess I'll try it when I'm actually in NC, since Connecticut, unsurprisingly, has none. Tongue

FTR, this wasn't intended to be a "Southern hate thread" or anything political or whatnot; I just wanted opinions on the food itself.
8  Forum Community / Forum Community / Question for Chick-fil-A eaters on: July 19, 2014, 10:36:13 pm
Is the food there really better than what KFC sells?  I've gotten the impression that KFC is a national favorite, whereas Chick-fil-A love mainly derives from a regional circlejerk.  That's obviously not a huge surprise considering that few restaurants are located outside the South, but I've yet to hear a redeeming, non-biased case for it over KFC.

How are race relations where you live?

Very swell if I do say so myself. 

Mississippi is very well integrated along racial and socioeconomic lines, and I am particularly grateful for that.  Growing up going to Mississippi public schools in a college town made my childhood extremely diverse, and that's actually something that I think I would have been cheated-out of if I had grown up in suburban Chicago or Denver.

Moreover, I now go to Mississippi State University which has the highest percentage of African-American students of any SEC school, and we have historically and consistently led the way in awarding Blacks ag and engineering degrees. 

So in other words, race relations are better in Mississippi than in Colorado or Illinois?  That's something I'd definitely have to see for myself...

I would like to thank the Court for its time and attentiveness to this important topic.

I am confident that this case will be used as precedent should, heaven forbid, a similar conflict comes to the public eye.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have a victory speech to give at a rally outside the courthouse.  Do excuse the Happy song looping in the background.  If I were you, I would get home as soon as I can.
14  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How big of an impact does politics have on your purchases? on: July 19, 2014, 07:41:53 pm
None at all, really, because there's a number of businesses that do or have done things I don't approve of, so it would be a waste of time for me to go over every one and decide whether I should give them my money or not.  I mean, I probably wouldn't shop at a Hobby Lobby, but there are (as far as I know) none where I live or will soon live and there are plenty of other stores I can go to for the same stuff.

Likewise, I have no reason to eat at Chik-fil-A when KFC already sells the best chicken.

But, if you're going to boycott one business on the basis that you disagree with the owner's politics, it would be hypocritical not to boycott other businesses for the same reason.  Since one person abstaining from buying isn't going to change, well, anything, what's the use obsessing over it just to feel like you're doing A Good Thing?
15  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Should Russia be put on the State Department's State Sponsors of Terrorism list? on: July 19, 2014, 07:32:55 pm
I should add, by the way, that unless the government is willing to go and use force on Russia, doing this would be of zero relevance.  If something an individual or government has done isn't severe enough to warrant the use of force, then toothless ideas like this are, well, just that... toothless.

HQ. The United States doesn't have a "moral imperative" to defend any foreign nation.

It's a blessing that some of you will never serve in office someday.
21  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: Help For Those Who Seriously Can't Help Themselves Act (Debating) on: July 19, 2014, 06:24:22 pm
In that case, there are no more bills to discuss.

Looks like I have to get that healthcare bill drafted soon, which is a little difficult for me now, but thankfully this is the end of the session...
22  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Federalist Party: June 2014 Convention (Another NEW VOTE, CHECK THREAD!!!) on: July 19, 2014, 04:04:00 pm
Aye.
23  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: IDS 2: Help For Those Who Seriously Can't Help Themselves Act (Debating) on: July 19, 2014, 03:58:37 pm
I'm not opposed to funding research, though in all honesty I'm rather pessimistic about this bill as a whole because it doesn't seem to change what we do already.  Effectiveness needs to seriously be considered in weighing the costs.

A few other points I'd make is that we already allow parents to choose which schools their children go to, the anti-homelessness bill we passed a few months ago addresses mental care, and the Senate is working on an education bill that will affect children in need of mental care.  The details of that priorities will likely be expanded on in future legislation.

If the sponsor can convince me that this bill will amount to more than a legislative band-aid and is worth what ever the total cost will be, I will support it.  But, at the moment, I am inclined to veto this bill in its existing framework.

I prefer oceans, but at times I'd rather sit by a quiet lake somewhere.  I've come to appreciate both in my life.

Yes. I want to unite everyone against the tyranny of Dave Liep and Nym90. We must make Inks top dog.

Now this petition will never get signatures.
