Reply to: Koch Convention to Rewrite Constitution Runs Into Roadblocks
First we are not fooled by your misdirection! The States have the Right to use Article V of the United States Constitution to call for a Convention of States which is NOT a Constitutional Convention! Your snake oil will not work on an educated Citizenry. The facts are, Government in general is out of control. The Federal Government dally disregards Our Rights to privacy. Federal Courts legislate from the Bench, interpreting the Constitution not recognizing it as a supreme, legally binding, contract which protects the Citizen from Their Government. State Rights are constantly degraded. This must end and the best, peaceful solution is for the States to use Article V of the United States Constitution to reign in Our out of control Federal Government. Calling for term limits, limited spending and restricting Federal taxation have nothing to do with your misdirection. 34 States meeting to propose Amendments will not result in 38 States voting to destroy the US Constitution!
Reply to: Why Don't We Talk About Smoking and Celebrity Deaths?
You stupid people. Don't you think smokers hate themselves every f*ing day of their lives for smoking? Look at some of the people mentioned in this article. Lucile Ball, for example, died in her late 70's. My grandfather and grandmother and other grandfather and grandmother all died in their 70s after chain smoking. One had colon cancer. One had bone cancer. One had lung cancer. The other one, I don't know what he had. But all died old, in the 1990s. And medicine these days can keep people alive longer. I hate to say this but I wonder how many of you have ever looked at the fat on your bodies or the genes in your history. Do an ancestry.com test and download your raw data. Upload it to Promtethease for $5 and see what gene you're carrying that you have to worry about instead of pointing the f*ing finger at everyone else. Some die young. Some die old. Some live a longer life. Keep eating those cookies and leave us alone.
Reply to: A Banana Republic Once Again?
While this is an excellent article overall, I wholeheartedly agree with the reader nonplussed by its use of the name 'Chiquita' for United Fruit Company, and was even more aggrieved by the retort. It indicates a belief that your readers are ignorant simpletons who wouldn't be able to handle proper name usage. If we are visiting your site, the chances are high that we are both educated and interested in furthering our learning, especially in terms of correcting a previous understanding of issues based on false or incomplete information. The activities described took place while the company was under the UFC name, so it seems to add, rather than prevent, confusion to use another that came into being later. Please do not be so patronizing in the future; it reflects either ignorance or distaste for your target market. Both are extremely off-putting to the very people you wish to attract to your site.
Reply to: How the Koch-Funded ALEC Works to Deny Voting Rights; Brave New Film Highlights Voter Suppression
The question isn't why havnt these people got ID its the effect it has on voting results, I mean look at those figures that's a lot of people, and my guess is they are in the lowest income brackets. I don't think there is a moral high ground in having ID and you can't think its more important than their right to vote as you said your not talking about the fraud issue and they do have to provide some form of proof of identity and I don't claim to know the issues/barriers immigrants or the elderly might have getting it but I'm sure its not as clear cut as laziness
