25. i would love to agree with you, can't advocate violence, but i really wish
we could sentence each and every one of these shameless fuckers to a lifetime of honest labor at today's minimum wage.
but then, being horsewhipped twice a day and then flung into salt water just might do him some good...

16. According to this...

Delay is threatening 9 Republicans who are holding out, but would vote against it.

26. Delay said this morning he was going to use force
"arms were going to be broken" but noone was going to leave until he had his 218 votes.

If anyone was going to do something, this morning would have been the time.

22. Half the effectiveness of Diebold is discouraging people like you
from going out there and working to win elections that will turn this country around. Most elections in this country are not run by Diebold. Let me tell you something, if there is even a single paper ballot election left in the entire country, I will be out working my butt off to get people out to vote.

24. Wow -
Edited on Wed Jul-27-05 11:01 PM by meganmonkey
Please don't judge me for one post. You have no idea what kind of person I am.

Thanks.

on edit: I should have added Es&S and Sequoia. That would cover about 80% of counties inthe country.

23. No reconciliation
since the bills are identical due to Fast Track. If it passes the house, it heads to *.

27. Didn't know it was "Fast Track."
I should have, though. Because in a race to the bottom, you always want the optimum racing conditions.

Thanks for setting me straight.
