    Why don’t we just get rid of marriage from the tax code and have everyone get civil unions? If you want t get religiously married in the eyes of your G-d, that’s your choice. Would eliminate all this discrimination crap.

    Between staff time, printing, and utilities associated with staff time and printing, what is the cost to the taxpayers of introducing legislation/amendments? Stop introducing bills/amendments that have zero chance of adoption.

    So I assume you keep Kosher…

    Deplorable, though the man still did more for his country than most. Even if you disagree with his politics, man was a genuine war hero, volunteering for a country that hated him.

    A write-in vote is half a vote for Grimes, period.

    How is it political? If there’s clear negligence, whether intended or not, the law should be followed. Were it a civilian who inadvertently killed a police horse or dog, they would be charged. Were it a civilian who simply left their pet dog in a car overnight, leading to death, there’d at least be an animal cruelty charge.

    Maybe we shouldn’t be outsourcing school security to for-profit companies…

    What if the Executive Action is a pardon? You don’t have to be convicted of the crime to be pardoned (Nixon). While I disagree with the action, the constitution does specifically grant the power of the pardon, without prejudice to citizenship. It’d be hard to argue that a pardon would be illegal or unconstitutional.

    The problem is that the situations where a woman can be raped exist. If the answer is simply avoiding all places/situations where a rape may occur, that would mean avoiding everywhere. Whether a girl was promiscuous or not is immaterial – the fact that we live in a culture where a guy can be so desperate for sexual satisfaction that he’s willing to drug someone to attain that satisfaction is the problem. I don’t care if the girl is dressed in short shorts with her bust literally busting out of her top. It doesn’t matter. Common decency should reign. It’s the parents the individuals fault for being so warped; it’s the parents fault for not teaching their son the difference between right and wrong; and it’s society’s fault for perpetuating a society that values sexual gratification over common decency .

    So according to your research, exactly zero girls have been victims of date rape? Does your ass, where clearly you pulled your research out of, have any studies to prove your conclusion?

    Also, just because there’s unseasonable low temperatures in the northeast of the US doesn’t mean other parts of the world aren’t experiencing opposite extremes. During the whole polar vortex freak out, Alaska was experiencing record highs. It’s unfortunate that some people think the issue of climate change begins and ends with their hometown.

    Just as it’s the organization’s right to kick out the member, as they did. So what’s your problem? Still bitter over the Civil Rights Act?

    So in your mind, war isn’t necessary even if you’re attacked? Even the isolationists of pre-12/7/41 supported a military response.

    I’m sorry, but where did you see the word “promoted”?

    This is not a true Third Party, rising up as a result of grassroots organizing. The entire process has been funded by the Astorino campaign. He collected signatures because of the political benefit, nothing else. With NY’s fusion voting, any party with ballot access (any party that receives 50,000+ votes on its line for its candidate for governor receives automatic ballot access until the next gubernatorial election) may endorse whomever they want. That’s how Rudy Giuiliani was able to be elected Mayor, running on the Liberal Party line. It’s also how a third party can voice it’s dissatisfaction with a candidate, like George Pataki being opposed by a candidate of the Right to Life Party. Last gubernatorial election, the Green Party earned ballot access, with the Libertarian Party falling a few thousand votes short; also close, but not as close as the Libertarian Party, was the Rent Is Too Damn High Party.

    I support pension reform in the public sector, particularly increasing worker contributions. But one way to narrow the gap is to expect more from the private sector, particularly b/c private sector retirement plans are often defined contribution, not benefit.

    Term limits are utterly meaningless without redistricting reform. When districts are designed by party-insiders for a specific party or an individual politicain, it’s their constitutents that suffer. Districts should be drawn only according to zip codes, area codes, school districts, existing municipal borders, and natural geographic boundaries – nothing else.

    FYI, the Mayor is a Republican.

    So in your mind news outlets should cease to report on anything else? Pretty sure there were still SPORTS sections forever, comics strips on 12/7/41, and movie times on 9/12/01. And outside of the US, why should the overwhelming majority of the world’s population care about the Mississippi Senate Primary runoff?
