    I have him on ignore, so I am blissfully aware that he's trying to beat up on me. I'd prefer everybody else ignore him as well.

    Are you equally annoyed by bills that passed the Senate with bipartisan support that Boehner won't bring up in the House? I'm speaking in particular about the immigration reform bill the Senate...

    Sure. If they are smart. The leadership is, but I see no sign that they'll be able to handle the Tea Party elements. Hell, Boehner couldn't handle them when there were fewer of 'em. And since...

    Well, I will remind everybody that the Senate passed a bi-partisan immigration reform bill well over a year ago. It is widely believed to have enough votes to pass the House, but Boehner won't let...

    Yup, I seem to have one. And it looks far too complicated for me to try and fix. Where's the best place to take the computer, with (hopefully) fast service? I'm using Ned's in the short run, but...

    Oh, just shut up. I'm commenting on local stuff WAY less than I used to. If I pop up occasionally, live with it. My occasional presence can't be any more annoying than your constant negativity.

    I don't think everybody at KV thinks that, but there's definitely an element, more so lately than in the past. The whole thing is part of the tribal mentality we've got in this country right now. ...

    I was accused last night (by a fellow progressive) of "abdicating my responsibilities as a citizen" for advocating for a "yes" vote on amendment 2. I'm not wild about the amendment, but I greatly...

    So if you want an amendment(s) to pass, you might want to lower the bar by not voting for governor. If you want an amendment(s) to fail, you might want to raise the bar by voting for governor.

    A write-in vote does NOT count. The standard for the passage of an amendment is a majority of the # of ballots cast in the governor's race. If you don't like amendment 1, you need to vote for...

    Okay, good. Glad I asked the question. And I wasn't trying to put down Jamie or Scott or others at the paper. I've just been impressed by Josh Flory, and hoped he was ok.
