Congrats.

 

I would be careful on having your son buy your house. If he wants to really get into a career in web development it probably would be in his best interest to apply to many companies in many major cities. Getting his foot in the door with a good company would help his career out and this will be extremely difficult to impossible if he is stuck in one location.

 

Good advice.

 

Glad all is going well GoColts.  :cheers:

Are you in an airport

 

I was earlier today; LAX which focking blows chunks trying to get to the terminal.  But not for this Cuomo or Lemon crap.  I don't think I realized just how left CNN is until tonight.  I'm sure centrist Sho will come along and tell me how I'm wrong.  :thumbsup:

In Topic: Do you sleep next to your phone?

Yesterday, 08:04 PM

I have it set it mute at night automatically. Only my fiancée and mothers numbers are allowed to ring last ten pm, in case of emergency. Anyone else gets routed straight to voicemail.

 

I keep my phone by my bed when: (1) my youngest daughter is out, or (2) I'm on travel and need an alarm.  I keep everyone but my wife and kids on block during the night.

I think its bullsh!t that a tiny fraction of voters in a few swing states decide the president every time (lets not even get into the primary system, where Iowa and New Hampshire rule for some reason.) most of us are in a state locked into one side of the other. Due to winner take all rules, our votes mean nothing.

We should at least portion electoral votes by percentage like a couple of states do. If a republican gets 35% of the vote in Cali, he should get 35% of the electors.

Its also bullshit that empty hellholes like North Dakota have the same senate power as California or Texas. One senator represents millions more people than the other. Why should their votes count the same?

If you look at it without party affiliation, you know Im right. If you were drawing up a sustem for a country and had no preconceived notions of the electorate, you wouldnt do it this way.

 

The problem with a popular vote is that all of the focus would shift to the major urban centers, and a large section of the country would be ignored.  That being said I could entertain some changes to the electoral system, perhaps instead of winner take all you do it by district or county or individual electoral vote.  I'd need to think it through.  :thumbsup:
