If you are referring to the recent jobs bill, you might want to also mention that the Democratic Senate would not even pass it. Obama's own party wouldn't pass the jobs bills! Sounds like it would have been successful alright.Oct 30, 2011
Who is the moron that voted Union 3rd to drop them to 126?Oct 20, 2011
1.) Marty, nice copy and paste from liberal blogs.
2.) What you were writing(Copying and pasting) was going so well, then you just had to add in that last paragraph. They do not receive free healthcare. They choose from the same list of health care plans as every other government employee. 67 paid holidays? When they are not in D.C. they are back in the district with full schedules. You don't believe me? Try to get a meeting with one. 3 weeks paid vacation? Ok, I get 2.5 weeks, big deal. Unlimited sick days? Yes, Im sure a member of Congress just calls in sick, much like all other government officials.Oct 5, 2011
This poll is comical. Washington at 8? Borgia getting a first place vote? Come on fellas.Sep 14, 2011
There is a big difference in the support for the wars. I find it shameful that you even begin to compare WWII with what is currently going on with the majority of the U.S. military ventures.Sep 8, 2011
It's ok Zachary,
To those posting against the Model UN you are nothing but a brainwashed sheep that gained nothing from a mock session like this. Your hard work in preparation for the event and self education means nothing.
How quickly they are to bash the U.N.'s decisions, but forget the atrocities the the United States have committed in our past while expanding across America or so many other countries have through out history.
As humans continue to expand across the earth and technology continues to improve, the world is growing smaller while interaction among parts of the world is increasing. Get used to it. Every social structure has an elite class that rules everything, so why would a council of multiple nations be any different?
Am I advocating a ruling elite? No. There needs to be opinions, ideas, and support for lower individuals from various places (local, state, federal, nation to nation, etc). But to claim something is completely evil because of progression is ridiculous.Jul 8, 2011
I too am not in support of "under God" being in the pledge or any other reference to religion or God in our government. I do think it was silly to edit it out. I would think it would cause much more negative feedback than leaving it in.
@Bassoro, although I agree that not all in the U.S. has liberty and justice, that is what we should strive for. And yes, many people disregard that, but I don't see how it would help to leave it out.Jun 30, 2011
Yes...learning how the U.N. operates by doing a mock session is actually the first step in brainwashing the youth of our regional schools.Jun 30, 2011
And what would you have them do? Disregard the Constitution?

At least you have now focused the debate on something other than the continued question of which I previously referred to. Replace the word debate with discussion if you prefer. You asked the question, you have the answer. No voice was denied the right to be heard. But hearing that voice repeat a question that has already been answered is redundant, hence, end of discussion on that matter.
Just because you do not find the answer of Karen Lane being a public street favorable to you, does not mean that it fails to answer the question of "why can’t the access through Karen Lane be for emergency vehicles only?"
The rest of what you have brought up regarding the issues are new questions, many of which have not been addressed, and should have been looked into or should still be looked into.
