30 It is with great restraint that I have kept my Profanity Laced Rants to the comments section here, rather than on that blog I don't have. Because I don't think that would be... helpful. On the other hand, this week has about convinced my wife that I'm right about the government (she never thought I was actively wrong, just that I was overreacting). So that's nice. Not that we can do much about it right at the moment, but it's nice to be on the same page.

59 Posted by: Lurkingestlurker at February 27, 2015 04:25 PM (k8xvx) You don't have them because the javascript in charge of comments strips them out. Chrome will let you have ampersands natively (I guess the script doesn't work with input from Chrome?), and in FireFox (or PaleMoon, which is the same thing, but not evil) you can download the NoScript add-on (which, consequently, will also speed up the HQ significantly), and that will let you use them again.

61 From the previous thred (this IS "open," amirite?):

The only reason Nixon was forced to resign is because Republicans turned on him. Democrats will never turn on Obama. Never. Posted by: JackStraw at February 27, 2015 04:17 PM

This is a statement that kinda bugs me. The Republicans didn't "turn" on Nixon, so much as they found his activities during the Watergate mess indefensible. His "dibbling and dabbling, shillying and shallying" (to quote my own hero, Barry Goldwater) was dishonest and self-serving. The man lied, repeatedly, simply because he wanted to remain in power.

Again and always, he was a complete amateur at the Game of Lies compared to Choom Boy, and his motives were pure by comparison. Nixon didn't want to destroy the country; he wanted to lead it.

There was a time when the majority of both parties in Congress was made up of patriotic, honorable and reasonably honest people. It didn't end all that many years ago, but it sure as hell bears little relation to0 what we have now.

No it wasn't Rocky, it was Goldwater and others.



Nixon agreed to see Goldwater on the following day. But he insisted that the top GOP congressional leaders accompany him. So Goldwater arrived with Sen. Hugh Scott, Pa., the minority leader, while Scott's House counterpart, Rep. John Rhodes, Ariz., came separately.

I said "majority." Half plus one a good bit of the time.

For years I regularly voted against some of them, mainly Democrats, because I opposed their policies. But I felt that many of those were sincere, if hugely misguided and way off-base.

Now, I'd be delighted to see 530 or so of them imprisoned. For long, labor-filled sentences.

110 Hypothesis: The area controlled by the United States of America is simply too large for a single Federal Republic. Because it is functionally impossible for a normal person of normal means in (say) Texas, or Arizona, or Washington (the state), or Montana to take time off to go to the capitol just to get some face-time with his or her representative (let alone senator), those people are at a disadvantage when it comes to having their views represented. While communication improvements such as phone, email, and even twitter have mitigated this to some extent, the very fact that most humans believe (of people they only speak to on the phone or (worse) converse with via email or twitter) "those aren't really people," it does not -and cannot- fix the issue.

149 Ummmm....the fact that all members of Congress have District offices in their home state? Which they visit precisely how often? Having someone who says, "We'll pass him/her the message" is not the same as face-time with your representative. Joe Barton has never... take that back, Joe Barton has met me. But just briefly and not in a setting where I actually got to speak with him much (his assistants liked me, though). So if he sees my name on an email, or a fax or letter, or whatever, he's going to think "Who's this?" and promptly forget my position. Now, I'm not letting voters off the hook here. Voters need to be much more active in conversing with their Representatives. But even if they were- at the current moment- I do not believe it would make much difference.

You work in one place, it's very hard to be in more than one place at once. And, I'll further state, that I don't think there's a whole lot of difference at the moment, because I don't think even the reps in VA or MA are being particularly diligent in listening to their constituents. But even if they were, if everyone were as fully involved in that sort of two-way communication as they could be, a person in, say, El Paso would have less access to his representative than someone in New York or Pennsylvania.

To me the solution is electing people who listen. And then term limiting them. I used to think that term limits were a bad idea because the federal govt is complex and you needed to be around a while to learn all the pressure points. We could eliminate 20 federal cabinet level agencies tomorrow and it would still be too complex. But now....now I'm of the opinion that term limits are a great idea because rookies every two years sure as shit can't do any worse than the current clusterfuck known as the U.S. Congress.

193 I completely agree with your basic principle, just not with the solution. I hadn't pressed for any solution. There's an array. But I do think people need to start thinking about the problem. If that makes any sense. Now, I'll state I *do* prefer Secession (RoT2: Electric Boogaloo), but there could be other answers that would work. As you mention- term limits are a good first step.

195 Increase the House of Representatives to 5000 members, like the meeting of The Old Republic in Star Wars. That will increase the number that have to be bribed while insuring that the representative is elected by their actual neighbors.

196 To me the solution is electing people who listen. No-ooo . . . The solution is to not let the bastards get that close to the power in the first place. That's why the U.S. government was designed in such a byzantine way in the first place. The problem is that bastards suck up power like sponges absorb water. I think the solution, when everything finally falls apart and we're at last able to try again, is to separate powers even more than the Constitution did. The problem with THAT, of course, is you wind up with the Articles of Confederation. Around and around we go.

Lots of applications in Med mj, and certainly better than rolling joints behind the auditorium, but my, how times have changed.

209 I know what LBGT stands for-just not the rest. I think it's ridiculous to discuss what gender you think you are. There might be people who at birth are hermaphrodites but that's a small number. Unless you really want to wear women's clothes in public why would you need a sex change. Couldn't you feel comfortable enough in your own skin that if you felt more nurturing than other males you just accept that. or if you only liked to wear pants and loved playing softball that you were still a woman? I knew of a guy-very bright, very articulate, and had some high paying job and position. He spent lots of money becoming a woman and then lived with another woman. I never could wrap my mind around why the need to do that. Im phrasing this badly but if seems to me a shame that you can't be your own person and still keep the sex organs you were born with.

   I've gone through this past 2 weeks even more determined to keep on struggling to effect change for the better in MY country.

  No letup at all.

 I realize that my effort may be seen as insignificant--no matter.  It is what I can do as an individual.

  All this is taking place at the local level, where I CAN make that difference.

  School board meetings,local candidates--it begins at this level.  Get this right and the state and national part is so much easier.

   Probably my life span won't see the results of the labor and I don't really care. Enough that I gave back for the privilege of living in and protecting the most exceptional country on the planet.
