Alito and Roberts seem to have been the best things to come from him.
Certainly far superior to the two jokes Obama chose.

I'm ok with one man, one vote, the only change I would make is let the active military members get 2 votes, since the results have a greater impact on their lives than anyone else's for the most part.
The Koch brothers would have exactly the same vote as you under the author's plan.

Voters should be asked qualifying questions before being allowed to submit their ballots, e.g. what was Ty Cobb's batting average?; by what treaty was the Clayton-Bulwer Treaty abrogated?; Ginger or Mary Ann?
Mary-Ann hands down.

I'm all for letting active duty military have greater weight in the process. Heinlein was onto something there. Plus, we'd never have another Obama or Clinton again.

Well gosh that's not at all in the spirit of the Constitution and Founding Fathers. Militarized government has brought us banana republics and post-colonial Africa, among other hellholes.

You are guilty of treason, traitor scum!

He's definitely not my type, he's all yours.

I'd suspect by now, though, age and wear might have loosened it a bit.

Citizens United is the only decision that's come out of that court that I have issue with. I'm against corporate personhood. I'm all for an amendment separating individuals from business or corporate interests.

On the other side of that coin, we need to quit abusing corporations through excessive regulation and taxation and let them do what they do best.

The churchgoers I have in mind have a war on science. The type who think the only book you should read is the Bible.

There are those who misuse science just as there are those who misuse religion.

You're never gonna see me ride a bike to work. If they ever get a viable electric car that's reasonably priced, then hell yeah. With my middle finger pointed at Mecca five times a day.

Are you referring to the ones who think that God buried dinosaur bones just to mess with us?

I read an article that stated it cost over $18 to fully charge a Volt, which then had a 30 mile limit.
I don't see electric cars being the answer. We haven't yet discovered the answer, although there was a guy from around Grove City years and years ago who supposedly developed a car that ran on water but was off'd before he could get it introduced.

No. Every adult should have the right to vote. For some, that's the only say they have. Everybody should have a say in the rules of the game we're all forced to play. It's stacked enough with the big money having a lot of influence on those who make the rules, and most of those rules have to do with the wealthy keeping more of what they have. I don't give a shit what your logic is. I'll not tolerate losing ALL influence. Anyone who seriously proposes this is going to have a BIG target on their ass.

It'll take massive improvements in how to create and store the electricity, but I think it's definitely the way to go... eventually.

Well they are still gonna work on it. I may be dead before they succeed, IF they ever do. But the finger fantasy makes me smile, so I'm keeping it.

Yeah, that dude was a complete fruitcake. Always just a little way from perfecting it, but he had about as many details about it as Romney's jobs plan. I know he had to keep it secret, but we've known for over a hundred years that it takes more energy to break the water molecule than you get out of burning it again. Because water is the combustion byproduct. You can't burn something that's already burnt. So he was barking up the wrong tree.

Your Bible-only people would never acknowledge that.

At a minimum the vote laws need changed to allow land owners a vote on property tax and land use issues even if they do not reside in the precinct(s) the issue are on the ballot. It is patently wrong to collect taxes based on land and structures when the owner is not allowed to vote on these taxes.
Good point. I've sometimes wondered about this.
