    US Politics: Paradise Lost

    That partisan polarization scares the crap out of me.

    I’m curious, why are you so certain on that? Did Adams say he wrote it for children?

    Impact crater found in Greenland; New source for Younger Dryas extinction?

    Because I hate talking about politics?

    I don’t think it is a childrens book.

    Impact crater found in Greenland; New source for Younger Dryas extinction?

    I like talking science. Much more fun than the “never ending clown fight” that is politics.
  6. So some have speculated that the extinction from the Younger Dryas could have been caused by an impact event. The frequent referain in opposition to that idea has been the absence of a large impact crater or its remenants. Guess what we just found in Greenland?

    US Politics: Dead Pimps Need Not Apply

    There is no mechanism in the Constitution for such a process. And Art. V says “no State will be denied equal sufferage in the Senate without its consent”. I don’t know any other way to do that besides unanimous ratification.

    There are two methods of Amendment. Both require unanimous ratification. The other alternative is full on revolution. How far do you want to take that idea, remember, you break it you buy it.

    Gaming the system and playing on the apathy generated by the system being gamed bothers me. I’d be lieing if I said anything else. How much gaming needs to take place before the effect is the same as rigging?

    NYC would be perfectly viable as its own State.

    I was trying to come up with a $.50 cent word that means it’s what small States got to agree to ratify the Constitution. They feared large States like Virginia would dominate the Federal Congress with their large population and demanded a House of Congress not tied to population. And thus, the US Senate was born (with its super-Constitutional protection from change).

    The Senate was never supposed to be proportional representation. It was intended as a balm to the smaller States guaranteeing they would always have a voice in National politics. Further it is the only provision of the US Constitution that demands unanimous ratification to change. US Const. Art. V:

    So, the roadblocks the two major parties put on non-Republicans and non-Democrats are just “thumbs on the scale”? And you don’t see making sure your questions were asked as twisting the purpose of allowing questions from the public in a forum like the one you descended?
