The fact that it passed without a single no vote is remarkable. Very surprising but in a good way. There were a number of abstentions on purpose and/or absent members.

I originally thought that this passed with every member voting for it but I forgot for a minute that we have 203 members, not 192.  Tongue  I was going to say that it would be very odd to have some of the liberal members voting for this (and we have some far left wingers, too).

A shame that not a single Pennsylvanian Senate Democrat is not a DINO.

You need to read it a couple of times, I got a little mixed up as well.

You shouldn't use double negatives, people. Smiley

1) This was a State House resolution, not a State Senate resolution.

2) As I mentioned earlier, several people obviously abstained in protest (or we have an unusually high number of absences). There are plenty of very liberal members of the State House here.

"You know, if I listened to him long enough, I would be convinced that we're in an economic downturn, and that people are homeless, and people are going without food and medical attention, and that we've got to do something about the unemployed."

Oh yes, he's worth celebration.

It is a shame that the inner-mountain west ate that shit up. I hate my state for not re-electing FF's that protect the environment like Frank Church.

His presidency was a crime against humanity, but his existence in and of itself wasn't that bad.

The problem with Democrats is that they are way too much into bipartisanship. Bi-partisanship means giving the Republicans whatever they want.
