Of course they are. What else can you do when someone is trying to murder you?

How can a union, as such, possibly be an object of murder? All Walker did was enact some common-sense reforms, right?
Public sector unions are a mutiny awaiting their moment, or, in the case of Wisconsin, trying to have their way with taxpayers.
I hasten to add that I have no problem with private sector unions, insofar as there are right-to-work laws to keep them in check.

A peek behind the curtain... I created the Red persona as a way to fool the trolls into thinking I was one of them, and then get them to applaud me when I insulted them and beat them at their own game... I'm a countertroll; I fight fire with fire -- only I'm far funnier then the low talent hacks we have for trolls around here. My plan worked, and works, flawlessly - though I just don't have time to be Red lately.

I mean, think about the list of trolls around here that are gone. I take credit for that, because when it came down to it, they just couldn't hang with the Big Dog, baby. They're gone or using other accounts because I completely devastated them.

The truly brilliant part, was the concept of the Fab 4. Ultimately, I created Red as a symbol, that anyone could be... hey, just like Batman!

HEAR THAT, DUMBASS? I'M THE GODDAMN BATMAN. AND I'M BETTER LOOKING THAN BEN ASSLICK^H AFFLECK.

Love and Kisses,
Red ... so who wants me to come back and play? ... I think I've got one more run in me. Hand me that plaid flannel shirt.

No, no: are you willing to do an interactive read with me of this text? We can go back and forth in ~300 word chunks.
I'm willing to slog through the cess pool of Marx's thought. . .if you are.
I'm also willing to do the same with, say, the Gospel of Mark with you. It's the shortest. But let's do yours first.
Because I'm a giver like that.

Of course the lottery "can work". In pointing out S.P. as a potential officeholder from it, I kinda seem to have stipulated that it must work. (Duh?)
I'm discussing the kind of consequence you'd face, and pointing out an apparent contradiction: your support of the mechanism seems at odds with a potential result.

You're only trying to find a way to satisfy yourself that the lottery can't work. All the inconsistencies are on your side.

Your perceived inconsistency is what, exactly?

Waterfall vs Agile. Waterfall, you get the spec, go and code. Agile you get lucky to code a couple of hours a day, the rest is ALL spec gathering, and then you stay up all night for the sprint right before you submit the code for user acceptance testing.

Yes it is sort of

It should be no different than any other evidence of a crime. If your car was stolen and used to rob a bank- or they just think it was-, similar circumstances would happen.

However, with the cash and asset forfieture it is a little backwards where the only evidence of any crime is the fact that it is in your posession and few times are there any charges filed at all.

But nontheless., there is a legal process no matter how horrid or abstract it may be. This does make it different than a law enforcement officer stealing identities and trying to impersonate people in order to ensnare people they otherwise would have no clue existed.

Oh.. and you do not have to convince me about how evil asset seizure is. I'm just saying at least there is a process.

Of course they are. What else can you do when someone is trying to murder you?

As far as Illinois' fiscal problems, they started under Thompson (R), who wanted to both cut taxes and increase spending (sound familiar?). Edgar (R) followed his footsteps, as did Ryan (R). The screaming didn't start until Blago (D) and it's still a terrible problem, but is slowly improving.

Ryan and Blago both went to prison for bribery. Thompson (R) unsuccessfully defended Blago in his bribery trial (note that even Johnny Cochran and F. Lee Baily together wouldn't have been able to keep him out of the slammer).

The current Republican candidate, who "earns" a thousand times the median income, wants to tax my pensions, my social security, haircuts, food, medicine, while slashing both his own taxes and school funding.

No way in hell could I vote for that guy.

They most certainly did vote to change the rules in the recent past. No one but you in this thread is denying that and we are actually discussing the fact it may have been limited to hudicial nominies and can just as easily be done again to seat a Surgeon General. My claim is the reason it has not happened is because even if they did, not enough democrats would vote for him to pass.

You mean except when they did it about a year ago to get around needing a super majority?

If it wasn't just done, your point would have more weight. But then i would point out that the position is not unmaned, there is an acting S.G. in place and has been ever since the post became vacant. Its just not a political shill doing the job right now.

Make headway at work. Continue to let things deteriorate at home.

Working...
