I don't know where you live (that's a lie. I do.)
I don't know if there is an election in your city/county/district/state/etc...
But you should get your ass out and vote today.

Voting for affordable housing in Austin today. That's the big one. Everything else on the ballot today are Texas constitutional amendments. We amend our state constitution far too much, imo.

The local mayoral vote is too close to call.  The Republican candidate is currently up by 84 votes.   :-o

Everything passed in Texas, including an amendment to fund water conservation that was endorsed by the Sierra club and many environmental groups. I'm starting to thing Wendy Davis has a chance next year.

We elected a chump instead of a complete asshole here in VA so that's progress, right?

I thought McAuliffe was the asshole and Cuccinelli was the chump. But hey, at least you guys didn't elect the dude who wanted to ban oral sex. BJs all around!!

good news

the long list of phone calls during dinner from "private caller", "unknown number" and bizarre area codes will stop after today (thanks, caller ID)

bad news - it will get worse again very, very soon.

Brat.
A "Tea Party economics professor."
Which sounds a bit like "military intelligence".

Let's be fair: he's a libertarian leaning, free market, anti-immigrant...wait, what? Nothing libertarian about being anti-immigrant. Kinda hard to square with the whole free market thing too. Still, I don't see how he could be worse than Cantor.

But, sls, if you meant as House Majority Leader, Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took over his spot after he resigned (as Majority Leader, not his seat) following his loss in the primary.
Title: Re: Vote
Post by: slslbs on November 05, 2014, 09:45:01 AM
I meant his seat, but Majority Leader is actually more important. From what I remember, McCarthy isn't as hard line as Cantor, but we'll find out.
well, it would be difficult to be a bigger prick than Cantor, but I suppose it's possible

Ted Cruz is trying
