You're seriously saying schools and workplaces can't prohibit daisy dukes as a matter of civil rights?  What do racial and gender quotas, irrespective of the number of qualified applicants, have to do with highway funding?

I urge the President to veto this absurd legislation should it pass.

Prohibiting short shorts on girls out of fear that wearing them will somehow provoke the animal urges of their male peers is sexism, pure and simple. Rather than caving into sexism, we should be teaching young men to view women not as sex objects, but as fellow human beings. I don't think that's absurd at all. Nor do I think that correcting for past injustices by diversifying the federal hiring pool is in anyway absurd.

What is absurd, of course, is pretending that this legislation is anything other than a moderate reform, negotiated by all members of this esteemed chamber. This is nowhere near as radical as I'd have wanted, but it's a great bill and if the President vetoes it, I'm going to motion that we overturn that veto.

Clever poster from the Lib Dems out today. This is the theme I'd imagine their election campaign will be built around (if they've got any sense). The Labour sign pointing left and the Tory one pointing right shows a sense of humour too! lol

Sorry it's so big. I couldn't find a smaller one on the net...



It also takes the piss out of the Conservative poster that David Cameron is standing in front of here Cheesy

I won't be supporting this amendment. It's an interesting process, but one without any real purpose in the end.

RIP American democracy, FF.

Considering how this happened, it would be fair to say American democracy committed suicide.

I'll put my hand up... but ideally, there should be more diversity in the committee.
