Quote from: Lovely Bones on March 04, 2012, 08:39:01 AMWonder if Ms. Fluke's friend knows that a doctor can intervene for a patient with an insurance company and often get them to cover things that are medically necessary (as opposed to, er, recreational, cosmetic, optional, etc.)?
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 04, 2012, 09:44:19 AMMichael, your story about Target's cheap price of contraceptives makes me think of a Wal-Mart story. There is a diabetes medicine that Wal-Mart pharmacies sold for cheap cheap 5 bucks a month. The government said that this was too cheap and that Wal-Mart was not pricing their drugs fairly. Mom and pops yadda yadda. The same liberals who say it is expensive, MADE IT SO!

Quote from: The General on March 03, 2012, 02:01:05 PMI went to my State's caucus today and it was a total joke. Only 2 other people from my precinct showed up. I'm not sure why I even went since none of the delegates will be selected or allocated based on the outcome of the caucus. And the primary was canceled due to "budgetary considerations" by the Secretary of State and the State Legislature. So in other words, my vote has absolutely no bearing on anything whatsoever. Fuck this. Representative government is dead. http://www.nwcn.com/home/?fId=140958623&fPath=%2Fnews%2Flocal&fDomain=10212
Quote from: RecoveringNoorholic on March 05, 2012, 03:37:19 AMYou must be from Washington as well, General. I also went to my precinct caucus, or rather, I was my precinct caucus --- I was the attendee, the chair, the secretary and I elected myself the delegate to the GOP district convention later this month. I'm debating as to whether or not I'll wear my Nader/Gonzalez 08 shirt to it (actually this year will be the first time since I've been registered to vote which I won't be able to vote for Ralph Nader for President - I managed the hat trick in 2008 ... assuming Paul doesn't run as an independent I guess I'll probably default to Gary Johnson) ...
Quote from: RecoveringNoorholic on March 05, 2012, 03:59:49 AMThough, in fairness to my neighbors, I suppose I should note that I live in a precinct that cast 93% of its vote for Obama in 2008, 3% for McCain and 4% for Other (Nader, Green, Socialist Liberation, Constitution, Libertarian and Write-In) so I kind of expected a low turnout for our GOP caucus going into the thing.

Quote from: Lovely Bones on March 05, 2012, 09:22:31 AMYeah, nobody thought through the whole "fundamentally transform" thing, did they?
Quote from: The General on March 05, 2012, 10:37:35 AMYes, I'm a delegate now too. I only went because it was my ONLY chance to vote for Ron Paul, even though it was just a meaningless, non-binding straw poll. I think I'll wear my Savage Nation hat to the convention and complain loudly about Romney and the Republican establishment. I doubt I'll be making any friends.
Quote from: RecoveringNoorholic on March 05, 2012, 11:16:41 AMLOL +1 I'm not sure where you live but we had a pooled caucus with the rest of the district, as I think is the norm for most of the rest of the state outside the most remote areas. Three separate times before the pooled caucus adjourned and the precinct caucuses convened the district chairman announced the date/location of the King County convention. He didn't once announce the date/time of the district convention ... an important note since King County is the only one in Washington that elects delegates to the state convention from districts instead of the county. Since only like 20% of the delegates elected actually bother to attend district/county conventions, it should still be fairly easy for Ron Paul to take the state's delegate slate - even after losing the straw poll - if the delegates elected for Paul actually attend the next-level convention. I assume they're banking on the idea (and are probably correct) that most won't.
Quote from: The General on March 05, 2012, 11:47:16 AMSame here, King County. Mine was at a school over there in West Seattle.Didn't know about the District convention thing. You should let me in on the details so I can go.

Quote from: Michael Vandeven on March 08, 2012, 12:46:34 AMmy thoughts exactly.
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on March 08, 2012, 02:00:41 AM It's why I won't miss Breitbart. It's always overblown hype ala Alex Jones, endless hyperbole that tis only meant to get visitors to their myriad sites. And if this wormy child Ben Shapiro is Breibart's heir apparent, then conservatism is in worse shape than ever. I've heard that kid as a fill in on talk shows and he's an arrogant douche.
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 08, 2012, 06:09:49 AMI tuned into Hannity to hear the hyping of these videos. What a stupid video, and what a stupid host. Hannity sucks man.
Quote from: Oversoul on March 08, 2012, 07:38:09 AMFor some reason, everytime I hear Hannity speak I somehow get the impression he's got a little boy's short dick. Must be his voice, or manner of speech, or what he says. Whatever, he should just keep quiet.
Quote from: Frys Girl on March 08, 2012, 06:09:49 AMI could never stand Breitbart. I didn't like that he had to heavily edit his videos to make his points. Lame. There's so much more obvious stuff out there he could have focused on. He was an attention-whore, and it's too bad he didn't choose a healthier lifestyle. I tuned into Hannity to hear the hyping of these videos. What a stupid video, and what a stupid host. Hannity sucks man.
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on March 09, 2012, 02:25:23 PM This could also fall under "Things that annoy you"...but as I walked out of the Boston Public Library, South Boston branch, I saw a somewhat familiar face about 10 feet in front of me, when I realized who it was, I walked away-refusing to hold the door for this person. It was Obama's "Auntie Zeituni", the longtime illegal alien who resides in Boston public housing. BTW, she has the femininity of Bubba Smith.

Quote from: Eddie Coyle on March 14, 2012, 12:08:36 AM Two things... 1... This will be the most contentious GOP Convention since 1976.
Quote from: Lovely Bones on March 14, 2012, 09:14:26 AMFrom the sounds of Newt's speech last night, those are his exact intentions.
Quote from: Eddie Coyle on March 09, 2012, 04:32:52 PM It would probably remind people of "Life Goes On"
