“We need a Constitutional amendment to back up the Fourteenth Amendment with regard to voting. It needs to be readily available and standardized nationwide, with mandatory equity in polling places based on population, not past voting or any whim of the county clerk. Arkansas lost its chance for a decent US senator when a County Clerk eliminated a bunch of polling places in the 2010 Senate primary run-off, in districts that had overwhelmingly gone for the challenger in the initial primary. I'm sick of games, and it's time to tell anyone who makes it harder for people to vote that they are anti-American and in violation of the US Constitution. Equal rights? Not if you are trying to vote in a primarily minority district, a union district, a district with a university . . . .”

“Agreed. If President Obama wins I believe he would do something like this to protect our right to vote and the democratic process in general. If Romney wins they'll probably change the laws in secret meetings and make it impossible for anyone but the ones they want to ever vote again.”

“Some states, like Oregon, have figured out how to vote without this craziness.

There is no WAY I would want people from states like FL, TX, OH and LA having any say in a constitutional amendment that would effect my rights. Currently, all they can do is corrupt the presidency. I can live with that. I can't live with them touching, and (shudder) a Roberts court interpreting new constitutional law.”

“I wonder what a Congressional contempt charge or Congressional perjury charge will do to Walker, since all the evidence indicates that he blatantly lied to Congress?”

bert70 on May 26, 2012 at 16:23:45

“With a teapublican controled congress you can rest assured that any charges are dropped, that is if the congress even allows this charge to be heard. Remember Walker is a teapublican, and they are above the law.”

“Hillbilly, the break point on temperature is a bit higher and the humidity needs to be quite a bit lower to kill ticks in the central southern states than they usually are. Arkansas, if tick populations are any indication, got there last summer, but we had several days well into the 100s with no rain for weeks to get there.”

“The problem with "handing out Lyme testing kits like candy" is that the tests don't catch most cases. The International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society recommends using symptoms not unreliable tests as indicators of disease.

The only upside the climate change is that ticks are extremely sensitive to heat. The hot, dry summer of 2011 in the central-southern US last year probably wiped out millions of ticks.”

Waubay on Apr 4, 2012 at 12:23:37

“State health departments should be pressuring GlaxoSmithKline to produce the FDA approved, 92% effective Lyme's disease vaccine that they have a patent on but don't produce because they make more money selling the antibiotics to treat it.”

Every summer in the central southern states is hot and dry and the ticks are still going strong.

“The article and study are not about great literature versus pulp fiction. The study is about whether students can read the vocabulary and sentence structure at grade level. Sometimes a short word or short sentence are best; sometimes a longer word or more complicated sentence better expresses an idea. More often than not, college-level reading involves longer words and more complicated sentences. US students just aren't prepared to read those now.”
