re: I lie to political pollsters - BigJim
[quote]No. Voting is serious business. Aspects of my life depend on these candidates.[/quote] Good for you. You are correct. But polling is just as, if not more important. Polls affect: -what candidates decide to run for office -which candidates get enough funding to be viable -what pol...

re: I lie to political pollsters - BigJim
And when you vote, do you vote for other candidates because it's fun/sticks it to the man/whatever? Because the answer to your poll probably has more influence than your actual vote. Let's say that 1/3 of those that can vote do so. That means your vote "counts" for 3 votes. But in a poll ...

re: Obama's power plant rule- legal/procedural question - BigJim
[quote]Congress doesn't have the power to "block" an executive action in that regard. They either need to pass something limiting his authority (which he'd veto) or seek injunctions in the court.[/quote] Interesting. Did a little digging and apparently the federal rule-making process does not ha...

re: Louisiana Independent Party Growing - BigJim
Because people could get confused and sign up for the Independent Party when they really mean they just want to be an independent. Not a huge deal either way, but I think having an Independent Party is dumb. And moron is going to claim to be the leader of the Independent Party and point to numbe...

re: Obama's power plant rule- legal/procedural question - BigJim
That seems wrong. If they really had the power to block this rule, why aren't calls for them to do so? Instead all the talk is about either laws being passed or legal challenges. ...

re: Louisiana Independent Party Growing - BigJim
[quote]Interesting. I didn't know we had laws preventing the independent party from existing. [/quote] Because it's kinda dumb. "Independent" means independent from a party. So an independent party is just sort of a contradiction. Really anyone dumb enough to join the Independent Party (as o...

Obama's power plant rule- legal/procedural question - BigJim
Don't really want to get into whether this is a good idea or not; and certainly not looking to start [i]another [/i]global warming debate. My question is about the legal mechanism that is being used to bring this about. It seems to be an EPA rule. Does Congress have no oversight authority on th...

re: Two lesbians whining about Houma bakery refusing wedding cake - BigJim
[quote]One of the most important items in the Oregon case was that there was no custom item ordered, implying that if it were a custom item, the creator could have refused without breaking the law.[/quote] Where are you getting that? Below is the ruling: [link=(http://www.oregon.gov/boli/Si...

re: Two lesbians whining about Houma bakery refusing wedding cake - BigJim
[quote]I don't know of a state constitution that doesn't protect custom items. I think you might have misunderstood me, or I've made a typo somewhere.[/quote] Probably misunderstood you. Can you point out a section in a state constitution that exempts custom items/the creative process from prote...

re: Two lesbians whining about Houma bakery refusing wedding cake - BigJim
[quote]In some states. Like I said before, I don't think Louisiana has made itself subject to these laws at this time, hence the ACLU's, who probably supports the Oregon law and ruling and opines that this should be the law in every state, involvement.[/quote] In some places sexual preference is ...

re: Two lesbians whining about Houma bakery refusing wedding cake - BigJim
[quote]Items off the shelf are to be sold to whoever is allowed to enter the store and has money, more or less. Custom items are to be sold at the discretion of the item-maker. [/quote] Sez who? I would like it to be this way, but that is clearly not the case in many jurisdictions. Wedding ...

re: Social Security Bankruptcy: They Know Its Coming - BigJim
[quote]Do you realize that the "rich" pay the vast majority of taxes already? When you total income, sales, property, capital gains, and SS taxes, many pay 60-70% of their income. How much do you want? I would gladly settle for a flat tax, but most would hate it because they would have to pay more i...

re: Joe Biden Likes To Swim Nude in Front of Female Secret Service Agents - BigJim
[quote]uh yeah it does. Could be going for sensationalism but it says it right the frick there.[/quote] It's in the title but there is no evidence he does it less around male agents. He likes to swim nude (kinda creepy but whatever) and he has female agents. Not a Biden fan, but this seems o...
