qorkfiend: llachlan: Call me naive, but your Supreme Court has pretty much done the right thing on the big issues, irrespective of who sits on the bench. So there's that.

That doesn't mean it always will, especially if the balance is shifted significantly (and there are four Justices over age 70). The worst civil rights abuses in American history - with possibly the sole exception of Japanese internment - have all been sanctioned by the Supreme Court. The Court may get it right, eventually, but it took them almost 100 years to undo "separate but equal".


This isn't really my wheelhouse, so I'm going to ask this as an honest question - do you think that the fact we live in the information age might shorten the those time spans? I actually think that given the state of the world, and the pace that history usually marches at, that 100 years was fairly short (and yes, I know that in human terms, it was a long painful time, that's not what I meant). Here's an example from Canada: In 1992 the Canadian Military repealed 1967s (CFAO) 19-20, Sexual Deviation - Investigation, Medical Investigation and Disposal by 2004 a lot of provinces had marriage or marriage-like rights on the books, and less than 15 years later (in 2005) Paul Martin signed the bill legalizing gay marriage. You guys went the other way - you had marriage first then the repeal of Don't ask, Don't tell. Contrast this with say, Suffrage, which took a lot longer and seems like even more of a no brainer. It just seems to me that the ball rolls faster now.

I just have faith that you guys are not going to jump back into the middle ages - I think that a lot of the prominence of theocracy is a result of fear over the economy, people are scared and clinging to a life raft they understand (it reminds me of the prevalence of environmental mutated monster horror movies in the 70s, and of movies like the Amityville Horror, in which the scary part wasn't the ghosts but the money disappearing and stuff - when people are scared, they engage in major transference).

quickdraw: pseudoscience: markfara: Gary Johnson's not going to win a single state, and those who vote for him won't be proving a point in anyone's mind but their own.

Hopefully, the grownups will make the right decision.

Actually, if a third party candidate can manage 5% of the vote, then they are eligible for federal campaign funding.

"Minor party candidates and new party candidates may become eligible for partial public funding of their general election campaigns. (A minor party candidate is the nominee of a party whose candidate received between 5 and 25 percent of the total popular vote in the preceding Presidential election. A new party candidate is the nominee of a party that is neither a major party nor a minor party.) The amount of public funding to which a minor party candidate is entitled is based on the ratio of the party's popular vote in the preceding Presidential election to the average popular vote of the two major party candidates in that election. A new party candidate receives partial public funding after the election if he/she receives 5 percent or more of the vote. The entitlement is based on the ratio of the new party candidate's popular vote in the current election to the average popular vote of the two major party candidates in the election."

You still need to start grassroots. You need to be making a difference at the local level. You cant have a third party president when the rest of the country is still Dems and Gops. To me its ridiculous to even try for the POTUS with a party that barely 5% supports. Tea Party did it by being funded and swallowed up by the GOP. The only possible contender for a viable 3rd party is the Occupy movement. If they continue to do more relief work and community organizing then I can see them being a contending political party in 8 years.


Agreed, except it would still be a big deal to get public campaign funding, especially if we can get the damn PACs out of here. Also, disagree about Occupy - love the idea, but they've farked up too much already and everyone thinks they're crazy. Maybe if they start fresh...

Cybernetic: YoungSwedishBlonde: Cybernetic: Right. Because all of the deficits came from that. If you have to tell yourself that to make yourself feel better, I guess you can.

So I guess prior obligations don't matter when a Democrat is in office. It's all his fault.

Current spending matters too. Are you claiming that the entire deficit consists of prior obligations?


That wasn't your premise. But you knew that, didn't you.

CXUnison: Long time lurker, first time poster. (Made the account last night)
I"ve lost FB friends, not spoken to relatives, and have seen far too much derp on my TV.
I've been lurking here since just before the 2008 election, and I've been here pretty much every night until 3:00AM since the GOP primaries. You've kept me sane. I finally decided to join but it took a while because of the verbal beatdown I feared I might get, but now I think I can take it. I just wanted to say that I was here, when the walls fell. I'll post something more useless later, I've got way to much crow to prepare right now.


\Be nice, or don't. It's all good.

=================

As a fellow liter - welcome to the party (so to speak). NO hate, herp or derp here -- I can relate to the losing FB friends over the election and I'm currently observing radio silence there to avoid the outright lies I've had to read / endure.

The latest was the friend in NC who claimed that the Navy SEALs were going to show up to "intimidate" the Black Panthers - but had no source for this claim... I can't wait for it to be over.

Zerochance: Loving the Bill the Butcher references. That's a damn fine movie and Daniel Day Lewis has got to be the best actor alive.

I did learn from that movie that Tammany Hall was quite possibly the most corrupt politician ever to live.


Tammany Hall wasn't a guy, it was a place. William Tweed was the guy.

Looks like I won't have to pay attention to the election.

People always say babies are blessing...


Unless the doctor's panicking, that's normal. Labors last for farking ever. It's kind of scary hearing women talk about how fifteen hours or shiat like that was 'fast'. Jesus, guys, you are not making a case for me ever reproducing...

/It's been a few hours now, but if you can still go in and out of the labor room, maybe offer to rub her shoulders or something. I did a quick Google, and they reccomended birthing moms have someone massage them to help them relax\deal with the pain.

Eggs, crack, omelet.

theres a good politico link in the politics tab at the moment talking about the brewing civil war in the republican party, irrespective of the winner of todays election.

Yeah, saw that. It's unlikely, just wishful thinking.

There are too many people who identify with the brand, and the brand doesn't stand for anything but "my whole family is GOP so I'm GOP" anymore.
