“There was an episode in the first year where the professor use local plants to make a glue and paint to fix the boat. The castaways discovered the next day that the concoction had caused the wood in the boat to disintegrate - most of the boat was gone. I don't remember if the boat appeared in subsequent story lines.”

“Does anyone doubt for one second that if the Republicans take control of the Senate, they will do away with the filibuster so that Democrats can't do to them what they've been doing to the Dems? They will not hesitate a moment to take advantage. Their recent behavior makes it clear that they no longer respect the "comity" and traditions of the Senate.”

“I still think most low-information voters hear "debt limit" and think "credit limit." I think they believe that if we raise the debt limit, it will give the government permission to spend MORE money - not pay for the bills we've already established. I wish someone in the press would make the comparison more direct. I liked Obama's comment about the U.S. not being a "deadbeat" nation.”

“I agree. Chris Hayes often goes beyond the regular slate of pundits and commentators for his guests. He brings on people who actually know and have experience in a topic. He does have intelligent conservatives. Like you, I disagree with the conservatives on his show, but they make logical points and make me think. One of my new favorites is Josh Barro, whom I first saw on the Saturday show.”

“I used to think that civil unions might be a reasonable compromise -- until I learned, several years ago, that all those civil contracts end with the death of one of the partners. That means the surviving partner has no say even over funeral arrangements. It happened to a friend of mine. Now we learn that there are around 1,000 federal laws that advantage married couples -- there's no way a civil union could address those. It is time for marriage equality.”

Pennsylvania Voter ID Law Sidelined For May Primary Elections Amid Ongoing Lawsuit

Pennsylvania Voter ID Law Sidelined For May Primary Elections Amid Ongoing Lawsuit

Commented Feb 15, 2013 at 14:07:46 in Politics

“Photo IDs are NOT "readily available" in all parts of all states. In cities - sure, but not in many rural areas. The original problem with the PA law was that it was physically impossible for people who needed state-issued photo IDs to get them in time for the November election. At one point I read that the Dept. of Transportation would have to process 15,000 a day every day until the election. In PA, some rural counties have one DOT office, which may be open only one day a week. If DOT offices are open only during business hours, many day workers would have to lose a day of work to go to the DOT offices. I will believe that the issue is REALLY ID and NOT voter suppression when the states set up information kiosks at malls and other public meeting areas with immediate access to state records to verify ID information. I just had to renew my driver's license in Texas and it took 6 weeks to get the new license with the new photo. Fortunately I had a passport when I had to travel.

If you recall, the head of the Republican party in PA stated directly that the purpose of the ID law was to guarantee that Romney would carry PA. It was outright voter suppression in PA.”

runnr on Feb 15, 2013 at 14:28:41

“Its too bad that people in rural PA can't go to libraries or buy alcohol because of this draconian law.
I can understand some reasonable timeframe to implement; but I don't buy the argument that hordes of citizens are wandering around without identification.”

“There are apparently only few actions that require a supermajority (2/3) votes in the Constitution -- proposing an amendment to the Constitution, over-riding a presidential veto and approving a treaty. The Senate was designed to work on a majority rules standard. It is the rules of the Senate, not the Constitution, that defines what a filibuster is and how/when it will be invoked. That's why the Senate can change the rules.”
