Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

@Bric

OK, fair enough. I will rephrase my question.

How is it that the Civil War would not have happened without the Electoral College?

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

I think that you need to read it again Apop. I didn't say it caused the war, nor did I say it started the war. Nothing of the sort. I said: Without the Electoral College and the Three Fifths Compromise, the Civil war would not have happened, and the USA would still have slavery. Perhaps this is what Cohen is showing his support for?

@Bric

Sorry, I need some instruction.

How exactly did the Electoral College play into causing the Civil War?

Put that in your cigar and smoke it.

@CL

My thought is that it would be scalable.

Soak everything between a cigarillo and a Churchill.

I am telling you, this has potential.

APop,
I dunno, wouldn't that require me to put down the cigar at some point?

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

@FUNK

I think you are on to something big.

Cuban cigars are the world's best and a lot of old farts smoke them.

So what if we ditched the idea of soaking them in morphine and soaked them in Viagra instead?

Asking for a friend.

Re: “Encouraging Cycling, City Will Offer Free Event Bike Racks

I was robbed by some thugs while riding home several years ago on my bike.

My great grandfather was killed in a robbery that went bad, so I guess everyone should be concerned about thugs.

A thug, aka punk, punk bitch, child molester, worthless piece of shit, coward, perp, etc. as someone that does not belong in the human race because they cannot obey the basic rules of decency. Hell was made for thugs.

IMHO, it is thugs that are destroying this city.

It used to be painful to see the victims of thuggery back when I was a court officer, such as seeing some kids that lost their father because some punk did not want to get a job, but kill someone for a few dollars.

It really burns to see so many caring about Jonathon Breecher that was killed after pointing a gun at police officers, and putting several lives at risk running from officers, not to mention all the harm he caused others with his criminal activities over the years.

However, no one appears to care about the lady recently murdered that took a second job delivering pizzas so she could give her kids a better Christmas. A parent's life sniffed out so some thugs could avoid getting a job. Where are Jesse and Al?

Funkbars, I could go on, but why, what's the point, not many care.

Anyway, ride safe my brother.

@LoveBC
I've been bike commuting for a while now, and have never had trouble with "thugs."

I've always wondered about the type of person that has anxiety about "thugs."

Exactly where is the line drawn between "thug" and "person"?

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

Once again LoveBC's imagination proves true. Batista handed out window unit AC's to his beloved peasants to use with their surplus of electricity across the island.
Why aren't we talking out Hillary's tryst with Raul in Caracas in 1986?

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

It's the cigars soaked in 10% solution of morphine that really will make Cuba Great Again.

Oh, wait, we were talking about the electoral college and how we probably shouldn't have called Emperor Bush II a monkey a decade ago.

@ OakTree
I heard they have good central a/c at the hotels that the tourists are allowed in, but are banned for the native Cubans. Gotta love those worker paradises.

@Dayn - Looking back, one remembers the high points. You are waxing philosophical, I understand. But the groin rashes... You're forgetting about the groin rashes, the mosquitos, and the lack of good central air conditioning.

I dream of the good old days in Cuba, I shared a table with Luciano and Genovese. Gambling, drugs, whores of every description. Talk about tropical heat!

Re: “Cohen Introduces Amendment to Scrap Electoral College

Hilarious stuff! While all our favorite local leftists critic the supposed deficiencies of the American representative republic, leftists around the world are weeping over the death of Fidel Castro, a "leader" who never ran or won a single free election or allowed his nation a single basic human or civil right. But the proletariat had a free, Third World joke of a healthcare system, so what dedicated socialist would care if they had no free speech, no free press, no free elections, no free travel?

Re: “Rep. Ellison, Frontrunner in DNC Race, to be Honored Here

Oaktree,I know the DNC fucked over Sanders and his supporters, I was trying to figure out if LoveBC included Ellison in that Pelosi/Clinton group, since he is the topic of the article.

Mullins, Ellison seems to be much more aligned with the Sanders-like side of the party and as such should soon be receiving a good back stage back stabbing.

Re: “Rep. Ellison, Frontrunner in DNC Race, to be Honored Here

It's also a question as to how much power the chairperson of the DNC would have. An African American Muslim would certainly fit into their old identity politics facade. Especially if this facade hides the neoliberal decay of DNC.
