..."Way to Go, Governor"!
Many of you know that I would rather take the rabies vaccination regime, than to support LePage, but this time he is ~Believe It or Not!~ doing the right thing.
...for the live link, and for taking the time to explain the situation.
Are the lower prices for lobster due to an overly abundant harvest or reduced demand?
...and noted that it is a very interesting article that gives hope for the future.
I also noted that if you can read this article and feel happy, but you don't support stem cell research, then I don't believe that you are thinking about the subject with an open mind.
I whole-heartedly agree.
First of all, I thank you for providing the live links. I read the entirety of both articles, but I don't see how they contradict my opinion in any way. Conversely, Mark, they blatantly make my point that political apathy is dangerous and everyone should make their voice heard at the polls. One vote CAN make a difference!
I guess that you simply made a typo, I've done it myself, but it throws the context of your posting askew.
Angus doesn't GIVE financial support TO the DSCC, but unfortunately, he HAS RECIEVED a great deal of financial aid FROM them.
I am NOT "out of touch" with the reality of politics in Maine, I just disagree with them. I responded to this post from within my YAHOO email and didn't read my original posting before commenting here, so I may be embarrassed, but I don't remember writing ANYTHING about political fund raising.
My point was to encourage EVERYONE TO VOTE, and secondary to that message I "campaigned" for the Democratic Senatorial Candidate to "balance" the legislature again, as it used to be back in "My Day", when heated debates were common and it was very difficult for either political party to "slam dunk" the party line because they had a majority of seats.
If I were "King" for a day (pun intended) I would mandate equal seats in all legislative bodies. That would ensure that the desires of the "regular" folks would be abided by. All ties would be settled in promptly scheduled referendums.
I am, as you can tell, a "Dyed in the wool, Democrat" and I support Dill, in part, because of her stand on Preserving the Forests, Same-Sex Marriages and her belief that money and political influence should NOT dictate policy. "We the people should decide that"!
...or perhaps I should say a Republican in Independent's clothing.
The only change that I can see in Angus King is his political party affiliation.
We had two (believe it or not) terms to learn which way Angus "rolls". If you were satisfied with his performance as Governor of Maine, then vote for him as Senator. If you weren't, then VOTE for the DEMOCRATIC candidate, CYNTHIA GILL and balance the scales in Augusta.
Most importantly, YOU MUST VOTE, regardless of political orientation (we know that you were, in all likelihood, "born that way", and we don't hold it against you)!
We currently have Governor LePage as a result of the political apathy that is prevalent in Maine. Need I say more?
Sign me, NO RELATION TO ANGUS,
"You, and most like you, can't even get yourselves to say certain words because of your sick fear of having done something bad or offending someone's psyche. They are words, damn it; words."
Words can change perception and perception creates reality, Paul. If you chide someone for any reason; example: "You're a fucking faggot and you are worth nothing, so you should just die".
Those words could change the way that a person perceives themself, and if they perceive themselves as being "worth nothing", they may create a reality (for this person) where they actually believe that they should die.
Many more teen suicides are a result of "words, damn it; words", than by actions. Words have great power and you ASSHOLE have probably been a victim of such insensitive wielding and have chosen to perpetuate the "vicious cycle", whereas I, also a victim of heartless, "words, damn it; words." have chosen to better myself and others by wielding them with compassion.
If you were beaten and abused by your parents, Paul, would you in turn, beat your own children?
...was instigated by your free, comfortable usage of the "N" word.
You were easily identifible as a man of French Canadian Heritage, but if the person posting such hateful diatribe had been Polish, Italian, Russian, Chinese...or whatever...my response would have been exactly the same, except that I would have, to make my point, used the derogatory terms usually associated with each of these Nationalities.
A hater is a hater, Paul, and USUALLY anyone who hates one specific group who is different from themselves, very often hate ALL specific groups who are different from them.
In closing, for the final time, Paul, you can "Believe me, hoss", I travel "that" road, often. Acutally, every time that I meet someone who learned to type before they learned to think.
