I am a realist though & do perceive the world also by my loooong experience here on this planet. Which is an entirely different local than yours! & yes I can see the other side of the "pond" perceptions, I still do have some kin "over there" where we Yanks saved all your butts twice!

I do think , however, ones who are most alike, seem to often butt heads quite a bit? I'll give you that!

You are soooo wrong about that savage. If PM's between mods don't get it worked out there is admin. I personally have gone to admin about some decisions made by not just greens but twice about SM decisions and once an admin one.
It is done but you just don't get to see it.

Any member can appeal a post removal to Admin. We make the final decision and as Santee said, we don't always side with the mod.

I am seriously getting tired of you making insinuations about staff removing posts because they do not agree with something that has been posted. Staff removes posts for rules violations only.

If you keep making insinuations like this, you'll find yourself dealing with me personally and I doubt that you would enjoy it.



I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

So when then the gloves come off, Alex Jones (Info Wars) doesn't really believe the bullshit he is spewing? That he's really a "performance artist"?

Some of the posters on this thread are going to be very disappointed.

Default Somebody trying to leave before the carnage starts

Quote:
U.S. Representative Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of a House committee with broad investigative powers, said on Thursday that it is possible he could leave office before his term finishes next year, The Wall Street Journal reported.

"My future plans are not yet finalized, but I haven't ruled out the possibility of leaving early," Chaffetz told the Journal a day after the Utah congressman announced he would not run for re-election in 2018.

Chaffetz's staff in Washington, D.C., and in Utah did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

In Utah, officials have begun running informal scenarios on how and when to hold a special election should Chaffetz resign, but have not been formally notified of the congressman's intentions, Mark Thomas, the state's director of elections, told Reuters.

Unhappy CA Goodies

Feel free to simply go back to the above topics at hand, but I felt it necessary to go on a little rant about CA state politics.

It looks as if California is on the verge of becoming the next Detroit with the latest rounds of insanity by both the legislature and voters.

So far the voters have approved plastic bag bans, high-speed rail fiasco projects, and made it possible for criminals to get out of prison early via Props. 47 and 57.

We have a massive pension problem, and high taxes and regulations to boot which is driving people out of the state.

And now the state senate has given the green light for more gas taxes when we already have some of the highest gas taxes in the nation.

There's a lot to love about CA; but with people dying and leaving, damns breaking apart, I am at a loss for an explanation of why there isn't as much outrage from the public about this as there is demonstrated by other activist groups.

I guess it's time for my daily beach walk!

Yeah, we've got some serious issues here in California. Jerry Brown has reigned in the legislature and kept the state in the black, even with the high speed rail program. God help us when he's gone in 2 years.

We are between a rock and a hard place with rail projects. They are needed as it is not possible to expands roads enough for the growing population to drive everywhere. They do not cost less by being postponed. They are fraught with environmental impact delays, right-of-way and eminent domain fights, and are rife with opportunities for cost overruns and hands in cookie jars.

As for letting criminals out early, 1) California is under a federal mandate to reduce overcrowding in prisons, 2) mandatory sentencing guidelines placed many non-violent offenders in prisons, 3) it is very expensive to keep people incarcerated (something like $40,000 per head), and 4) the vast majority of the folks being released will do everything in their power to avoid returning to prison. Mistakes will be made, of course. But we are headed towards a return to programs that reduced recidivism and away from draconian and inflexible policies that have made the prison guards union such a powerful political force.

Pension reform is a pressing issue. I don't care what the judges say. A lot of people are going to be very disappointed when their greedy expectations for retirement income are not met. I could go on a real rant here, but will hold my peace for now.

Gas taxes are high, but it won't get cheaper to repair roads, bridges, and overpasses. Plus, raising gas prices will help reduce air pollution. I am tired of repairing my car because the roads are filled with pot holes.

IMO, the biggest problem in California is that special interests have lured the voters into making bad laws in the initiative process. Term limits have increased corruption, because the crooks are out to grab theirs in the limited window of opportunity. We have also found that inexperienced pols are easy pickings for lobbyists.

The legacy of Ronald Reagan is the notion that government services can be provided without paying the taxes necessary to fund them. It's a fantasy, of course, but one that California voters have embraced for too long. It is also a political reality that indirect taxes are the only way to keep the public paying the needed amounts.

California is blessed in having the most dynamic and creative businesses in the country. It produces 13.5% of U.S. GDP. If it were a country, it would rank 6th in the world. Think about it. California by itself has a larger GDP than either France or India. No wonder people sneak in here. Who knows how long we can keep it up if we let our university systems decline.

Just a thought: any system of governance always has serious issues. There's a strange default idea that somehow something as massive as pensions and healthcare finance would be "Ok, that's fine, we can forget about them now" . . . they're issues that are rarely crises, but always need attention.

That's one of my beefs with the crankies. Their implicit idea is that somehow government "should be simple".

It can't be.

Regulating biopharmaceuticals can't be simple. Pension plans in an age when people are living longer than you expected aren't simple.

All in all, California is pretty impressive.

I share with you concern about the University system-- this is a jewel, but its struggling under the budget cuts and the enrollments. Really deserves attention; but that's a "price of success" more than a "price of failure".

The University of Mississippi isn't burdened by thousands of folks who want chemical engineering or physics PhDs.

I live in Cally. The problem is IMO that all the unions fight any kind of a reasonable solution to the overwhelmingly increasing financial obligations to the pension plans. It is , again IMO, cut others and leave this one alone. The teachers and the Cal workers are the worst from what I have seen. No one wants to take anything less than everything they can get. Here there is such a thing as prevailing wages for government contracts. My neighbor is a steel worker and loves them. Why he makes around $20 or so on a normal job but a government prevailing wage job- sit down for this- he gets $63 an hour. The unions fight this also. Basically fuck California and the plebeian idiots.
As to the Uni sistem there is only so much that can be done within reason yet the students want it all for free, that ship not only sailed but sunk. IMO it is a case of gimme, gimme, gimme.
My son even moved to Ky to go to school and now is taking an MBA course at UNC. On his own dime I might add.
