So thankful Adella won. Perhaps this is foreshadowing of what's to come with Ordinance 119. all sane people should vote AGAINST the repeal.

Scooter Tsunami

> a parking pass from $7 per semester to about $57, Gilbride said. A basic parking pass for a car is about $85.<

this should be an outrage. Four scooters can easily park in one car space if that is the criteria. Paper processing for either car or scooter abut the same.

PUBLIC VIEWPOINT Grisham Analogy On Obamacare Off Mark

Everything is wrong with what jeffieboy has written.
It is that simple. He is not an American. He is a totalitarian who would like to have his ideas ruin the nation. He is beneath any consideration of relevance.

Accentuate the positive

>As far as converting Medicare to private insurance goes that is exactly what the PPACA does. Under the PPACA the government mandates that everyone buy a minimum level of insurance from the private insurance industry<<

Are you completely off your rocker or your meds?

The United States always been ruled or strongly influenced by special interests.

Anyone who thinks differently is ignorant of our history.

Senators were once elected by the respective state legislatures as called for in our Constitution. They were the representatives for states' interest. Now they're elected just like representatives, by popular vote and a simple majority or plurality of voters is all that's required.

J-Boy, the nice thing about American political pendulums is that eventually Repubs will control
the Senate. when that time comes they can restore the
filibuster-cloture rule to 60%. Or, they can make it more protective and move the needed majority to close a debate, cloture, to 70% and assure that nothing gets passed while their majority rule is in effect.

The Pilgrims and us

>>They were part of the Religious Right. Or maybe the Religious Left, since the Pilgrims emphasized communal organization as much as they did individual rights....--Greenberg

Greenberg's ilk would have no problem labeling them "socialistic:"

Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one of another, covenant and combine our selves together into a civil body politic, for our better ordering and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid; and by virtue hereof to enact, constitute, and frame such just and equal laws, ordinances, acts, constitutions and offices, from time to time, as shall be thought most meet and convenient for the general good of the Colony, unto which we promise all due submission and obedience.
-- The Mayflower Compact, 1620.
