I have heard from the single mother in New York City finding it hard to make ends meet, saying to me run Winfield run.

I have heard from the fisherman in Maine who is working fourteen hour days so he can feed his family, saying to me run Winfield run.

I have heard from the farmer in Colorado who has found it difficult getting a fair price for his grain, saying to me run Winfield run.

I have heard from the lumber worker in Oregon whose business has cut his hours to part time, saying to me run Winfield run.

I have heard from the office clerk in Mobile who pays much of her income out for child care, saying to me run Winfield run.   

I have heard from the factory worker in Chicago who fears he may not be able to keep up with technological changes in the industry, saying to me run Winfield run.

Walt Whitman, how did you get in here?

I'm all for making sure places aren't trying to make outcasts of the homeless, but to say that locales can't make any type of restrictions at all on where a person can sleep just seems like it might be too much to ask.  

I don't think they can sleep on private property,
And public does mean public, after all.
Perhaps this bill would incentivize
The common man to actually care
About and confront homelessness instead
Of banning feeding poor folks on the street.

I vaguely recall you saying you wouldn't do this during reelection..

Shh...

"To die, to sleep--no more--and by a sleep to say we end the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished."

ď'Does it hurt?' The childish question had escaped Harry's lips before he could stop it. "Dying? Not at all," said Sirius. 'Quicker and easier than falling asleep.'"

If the need ever arises, you can talk to me - I doubt I'll be of that much help, but I can try my best.

1685  About this Site / How To / Have I gone mad? on: May 15, 2014, 05:00:43 am
I was browsing through the recent posts here as part of my morning ritual, and I noticed that every single link posted here in the form of words (i.e. the text thing) redirects to the top of the page it's on. Could someone issue an explanation for this or shall I be consigned to wallow in my misery forever?

Edit: Actually, I think this would be better served on the "The Atlas" board, now that I think about it. Could one of you folks be a dear and move it there (if you share my beliefs with regards to thread placement in this case)?

Would an international friend zone be something along the lines of the following?

israel: hey palestine can we have all your stuff

palestine: no can we just be friends

israel: god palestine you're such a bitch i hate you

I think Ben Franklin is easily the #1 non-President. Maybe Hamilton too, since he's on the $10 bill.

Because I live among them - because I am of them - I can say of the white trash lumpenproletariat what would get a latte-liberal strung up as a classist: they are worthless, of objectively less value than the cultural elites they rail against in their inverted class consciousness, and I scorn the Party which appeals to them.

See, this is why we shouldn't ban the word "sociopath".

1695  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Atlasian Reboot Act (Debating) on: May 14, 2014, 03:54:31 pm
I'm not the biggest fan of this here bill;
We've done so much work in these past ten years.
But, then again, there is a cosmic cycle
Of governance and lack thereof in things.
For now I think I'll have to vote Abstain,
Although I stress I keep an open mind.

1698  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: 1896 U.S. Presidential Election on: May 14, 2014, 03:48:39 pm
Proud to vote for Donnelly! However, I'd like to note a few things. First off, the real Zebulon Vance died in 1894, so Joseph Smith should have been President. Secondly, both George and Donnelly die before the next Presidential inauguration (George in 1897, Donnelly in 1901), so the Speaker of the House (maybe a Smith comeback? A man can dream...) would be president for at least a few months. It might be interesting to see what happens, constitution-wise.
1699  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: End Lame Duck Terms amendment (Debating) on: May 14, 2014, 03:44:29 pm
I s'pose I must object to this amendment.
The language in the second part of it
Seems to defeat the purpose of the bill.
1700  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Long-term Unemployment Relief Act (Debating) on: May 14, 2014, 03:42:43 pm
I'm back, my friends (and enemies as well)!
It's time I jumped in here to save the day
From Shua's horrid, poor-hating crusade.
For that reason I shall be voting Nay
On this amendment, and then I'll be off.
I've got about ten bills to read, you see.
