“So you're saying that the GOP didn't want to help implement a law that was passed? Maybe they stood in the way?”

“To make sure they are organized enough for prime time and can raise enough money to compete in a smaller venue. Then they can attract more money for the larger contests. If they can't do Iowa they need to rethink. We are an inexpensive place to do a test run and place a lot of emphasis on campaign organization and meeting with the common folks. If a larger state went first it would put even more emphasis on rich donors.”

“However, we Iowans do take politics seriously and give the candidates and their teams a good testing ground.”

TesconsulT on Nov 25, 2013 at 07:02:24

“Looks like my first reply to Isis got lost in the ether. Here goes #2: You have a point about Iowans taking their politics straight up. However, in recent years, Iowans' political fascination has been captured by the Tea Party, a fringe group (at best). Just another reason to reject Iowa as a testing ground representative of the country at large. Try Ohio...or Illinois...or Pennsylvania....or Virginia. And no, I do not live in any of those four states. Did live in Iowa City for three years, however. But as we both know, Iowa City is about as much like the rest of Iowa as Paris is like rural France.”

TesconsulT on Nov 25, 2013 at 06:44:21

“I lived in Iowa for 3 years; accept your point about Iowans taking politics seriously. However, in the last few years, Iowa's political fascination has been captured by the Tea Party, a fringe movement (at best). Just another reason to reject Iowa as a fair representation of the U.S. at large. Try Ohio....or Illinois....or Pennsylvania. And no, I live in none of those states.”

“It sounds nice, fuel from corn. But then you have to consider that this corn gets sprayed with pesticides made from oil and it all seems pointless.”

“I find that the people I know who broke up with SOs before the holidays are among those who have in general the most unsatisfying relationships with other people be it family, friends, or the numerous lovers they have gone through. I'd see it as a red flag were I to date again.”

roshni on Nov 17, 2013 at 20:11:07

“No, it means we want to enjoy the holidays for a change.”

ftf 99 on Nov 17, 2013 at 13:57:58

“I spend the holidays with my family, not my significant other. I won't spend the holidays with my significant other until we are engaged. I don't live close to my family, so I leave for a week for thanksgiving and a little more than a week for Christmas and New Years. There is no reason for me to stay with someone during the holidays when I am not with them over the holidays. However, its something people should agree on, if both people agree to stay during the holidays or during hard times then they should.”

“Maybe do wait until after the holidays. And don't do it after a death either. You at one time loved this person. Don't be so eager to ditch them, unless they abused you.”

cenourinha on Nov 17, 2013 at 19:26:28

“completely disagree. I had an ex stick around for the holidays and you know what that achieved? I always think of xmas of 2000 as the one where she wanted to be gone, and was in spirit. would have been much better without her.”

NKNK on Nov 17, 2013 at 18:53:30

“After a death - sure. It's good to be there to support a person who has experienced a major loss. But holidays? Please. They happen every year, and it's all part of life. Some holidays may be good, some not so good - just like the other days in a year. It's better to focus on making every day special. besides, if you're faking it over the holidays, I would think that someone would notice, and then it's basically even worse. Then you knew you were going to leave but were just pretending for a little while, faking it, thinking the other person too fragile to handle it.”

EyeHeartUCLA on Nov 17, 2013 at 18:36:40

“I agree with not doing it after a death.”

“My dad has Parkinsons and I'm not sure how he would get an ID. Drive to the county seat, get him in there with a wheel chair, wait in line, and what ever has he done with his birth certificate? Even people my age dpn't have them if they were born at home.”

grandmablue on Nov 4, 2013 at 09:14:33

“Another point: I had no idea where my birth certificate was, so had to jump through hoops and pay fees to get a copy of it.

Now that my husband has died, I have to provide a copy of our marriage certificate (after almost 50 years of marriage) for the SSA. I had to send away for it, pay fees, and am still waiting for it to arrive in the mail.”

grandmablue on Nov 4, 2013 at 09:12:07

“Exactly. My husband died 3 weeks ago after 32 years of Parkinson's. If I'd had to jump through all those hoops with him, it would have been impossible. After our state's voter ID laws were passed with only short notice, the governor shut down all but one DMV location in the most populous county in the state, and reduced the days it was open, causing our wait times to go from 30 minutes to 8 hours.”

BlairCase on Nov 4, 2013 at 08:22:30

“People with disabilities can receive assistance registering to vote from any state agency that provides services to persons with disabilities or from any person they choose.

Texas has moble voter registration vans that visit poor neiighborhoods and assisted living centers.

People who lose their birth certificate can get a certified copy from the county clerk's office for $3 if they tell the clerk they need it to get an election idetificantion certificate. You can pick one up for your father if youy have identification, such as a driver's licernses, to show thge clerk you are a relative. You can also order them from the state be mail.

People born without b irth certificates normally deal with the problem loing before they reach voting age. They get a court-issue "certificate of nonavaibility of birth certificate." It's virtually impossivle to go theorugh life without one. You need thgem to enroll in school, register for the draft and Social Security and apply for a driver license.

Most elderly and disabled persons are excpetionally well docuemnted. They have to be to apply for Medicaid, Medicare, Social Secueity and other social programs.”

“The state in where you live generally has a birth certificate even when you were born in a home. My dad was born in the '30's at home in Northern Idaho. The state issued his birth certificate. He had to get a copy to get his passport.”
