Poroshenko passed a law giving temporary autonomy to the East.

Fatherland opposed, so that might give them some room to maintain a reason for existence.

Also, Crimea had elections for the local parliament. United Russia won a super majority. LDPR was the only other party to get in.

Oh my goodness, Mr Moderate.  Did you really have to condemn my food choice for tomorrow night?  At least it's not a large burger and large fries.  I see nothing wrong with spaghetti.

As long as the meat is lean and the sauce is based on actual real tomatoes....

It's usually 97% lean meat and it is traditional Ragu pasta sauce like you would find in the grocery store.

How do we know that they used the likely voter model to estimate the 2016 turn out in this poll? That's pure speculation in my view and probably false. Why couldn't they have asked all respondents this question? After all, they don't estimate the likely voter turnout until after the poll has been executed. When they ask a question related to 2016, there's no reason they'll spend heaps of resources to use a 2014 electorate to calculate such an outcome instead of just using the raw numbers.

"PPP surveyed 1,266 likely voters from September 11th to 14th."

And since the focal point of the poll is the senate race, the likely voters are of the senate race.

Exactly. The likely voters are of the senate race. It doesn't say whether they used likely voters or registered voters for their 2016 calculation. I would be very surprised if they calculated a likely voter outcome this far in advance.

Every single question in the poll is answered by the 2014 likely voters.

PPP really should know better than to test 2016 matchups among 2014 likely voters.

How do you know that if it's not stated anywhere?
I don't consider this sentence to answer the question: "PPP surveyed 1,266 likely voters from September 11th to 14th."
It just tells about the poll in general (the main theme is after all the 2014 election), but don't say anything about specific questions within the larger poll. Do you think they only ask the baseball/American football questions to likely voters? I think not. I'm pretty sure it's only 2014 related questions which are screened using likely voters. This does of course also include policy questions that might influence their 2014 decisions, for instance their stance on minimum wage. Yet the 2016 universe is a whole 'nother ball game, so it doesn't apply really.

They tried to pass a law banning people with Russian passports from entering the country. Unity was split. The National Alliance voted unanimously for it. The Reform Party voted unanimously against. The Greens and Farmers were split. Of course Harmony was against. It failed.

It's awesome to see JCL v TNF... basically one extreme to the other.

Is there one national poverty line or do they adjust it by state/urban area? I imagine it takes a lot more money to get out of poverty in NYC than say Dallas.
I'm pretty sure the Census Bureau uses one line (I believe for a family of 4 it's around $22,000, while for a single person it's about $12,000), but it's pretty easy to find estimates of the poverty line adjusting for cost of living from economists (as well as simply guessing from knowing what CoL is in an area).

How about you guys be adventurous and have spaghetti made with whole wheat pasta and put some sliced eggplant and mushrooms on top?

SHUT UP no way that'll happen you silly boy!

I wonder what Bushie's family has on their pasta? Marinara sauce? Meat sauce? Alfredo? Primavera? A la vodka? Bolognese? Or are they the dreaded types that like chili over pasta?

ever hear of Ragu?

Senator TNF, will you withdraw your earlier amendment as stated before or should I consider it as still active?
