Voters in Michigan torn between giving Gov. Rick Snyder (R) a second term or opting for his opponent, former Rep. Mark Schauer (D), will have only one chance to see the two men share a stage to debate their records. They’re lucky – voters in Minnesota are getting no debates at all: Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) has even refused to participate in a Minnesota Public Radio debate at the state fair, a tradition that stretches back 20 years

Across the country, in some of the most competitive contests for Senate seats and governorships and some of the least, incumbent office-holders are refusing to meet their opponents in front of television cameras.

The dearth of televised debates isn’t for lack of trying: Media outlets have proposed dozens of televised forums. But this year, more than ever before, candidates have squabbled over venues, hosts, dates and formats for debates – and as a consequence, all but a small handful of the faceoffs, rare opportunities for voters to weigh two candidates against each other, have been canceled.

Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) did not debate his primary opponent, state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R), and has not scheduled a debate before his general election showdown with former Rep. Travis Childers (D).

Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) is threatening to pull out of previously-scheduled debates with his opponent, Rep. Mike Michaud (D), ostensibly because a group running ads on Michaud’s behalf accused LePage of describing Social Security and Medicaid as forms of welfare. In Ohio, the campaign of Gov. John Kasich (R) – sitting on a 20-point lead – said last week it would refuse any and all debates with his opponent, Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald (D).

California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has agreed to only one debate with former Bush administration official Neel Kashkari (R) as he seeks support from voters in the country’s largest state – and insisted it take place on the first Thursday of September, opposite the first NFL game of the season.

In many of these cases, incumbents are rejecting debates they, or their predecessors, had readily agreed to in the past. Voters who rely on debates to clarify their thinking, to connect with a candidate or to get an answer to the question candidates choose not to discuss on the campaign trail, will have to make their decisions without that input.

The troubling trend of debate-skipping is not limited to one party, one region, or one type of officeholder. It is evident in both close-fought campaigns and blowouts alike.

Good thing the US isn't supposed to be a democracy anyway.

Getting back to the actual topic, I might be inclined to agree in the matter of Congressional office, but I don't know if I can agree with the article's core premise of
>The troubling trend of debate-skipping is not limited to one party, one region, or one type of officeholder. It is evident in both close-fought campaigns and blowouts alike.
The author also doesn't give enough attention the element of a lot of solid color states when it comes to multiple candidates in the same party debating each other, not just a two-person affair. Something else of note is that a lot of the hoi polloi don't realize or care that the majority of official party positions or opinions on the Administration are irrelevant to any given office, especially at the state and county levels (excluding the legislative district reps/senators), hence Yepsen's quote at the end being fairly accurate.

It should also be noted that focusing on the efficiency of watching debates when it comes to gaining voters is pretty low compared to other avenues, especially when the main priority is voter turnout in the first place.

Yes, phil, they're "wrecking the institution." All straight marriages in my state were actually rendered invalid when we decided gay marriage should be a thing. Also, our churches burnt down. All of them. Simultaneously.

>marriage is about child rearing
No it fucking isn't. Do you have any idea what marriage even is?
You are not required to even be capable of fucking reproducing to marry, by law OR tradition.

Try actually fucking reading about the things you're going to define, and setting aside your own cultural bias when doing so, you will be god damn shocked at what you find.
>> No. 97429 ID: f18153
One issue is that a lot of people can't seem to distinguish the cultural "institution of marriage" and the legal aspects of marriage.

I'd say marriage was originally about child rearing. But it hasn't been for a very long time, and really never was legally in the U.S.

You have every right to go on and on and on about the "sanctity of marriage" but you'll find a lot of people complaining about it disagree about what that even means, and you'll find that the state really has nothing to do with it.

I don't understand complaining about "statists" while insisting the state not sanction relationships between two consenting adults. I'm sure plenty of people get grossed out when you fuck too. Doesn't mean you don't get a marriage license.
>> No. 97438 ID: 85f7b1
It's funny hearing the complaints about marriage not being sacred and what not, and then seeing this attitude from the same groups when non-gay people do the same:


>Local gay rights groups have condemned the wedding, protesting that it 'trivializes what we've fought for,' according to the New Zealand Herald.

Yes, we can't desecrate the sacred institution of gay marriage!

Swiss voters on Sunday rejected a plan for a seismic shift from the country's all-private health insurance system to a state-run scheme.

Referendum results showed that almost 62 percent of voters had shot down a reform pushed by left-leaning parties which say the current private system is busting the budgets of ordinary residents.

The results also underlined the national divisions over the hotly-contested issue as the country's German-speaking regions voted against the plan, while their French-speaking counterparts were in favour.

Switzerland's private insurance lobby hailed the vote.

"The Swiss population does not want a single national scheme," said the Swiss Insurance Association.

"Our health system is among the top performers in the world. Competition between health insurers and freedom of choice for clients play a major role in this," it added.

"Justice never sleeps…. not even on a Saturday afternoon, when this opinion (Palmer v. D.C) was just handed down.

'In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional. Accordingly, the Court grants Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and enjoins Defendants from enforcing the home limitations of D.C. Code § 7-2502.02(a)(4) and enforcing D.C. Code § 22-4504(a) unless and until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.4 Furthermore, this injunction prohibits the District from completely banning the carrying of handguns in public for self-defense by otherwise qualified non-residents based solely on the fact that they are not residents of the District.'

In 2012, I won Moore v. Madigan, 702 F.3d 933 (7th Cir. 2012), which struck down Illinois total ban on the carrying of defensive handguns outside the home. With this decision in Palmer, the nation’s last explicit ban of the right to bear arms has bitten the dust. Obviously, the carrying of handguns for self-defense can be regulated. Exactly how is a topic of severe and serious debate, and courts should enforce constitutional limitations on such regulation should the government opt to regulate. But totally banning a right literally spelled out in the Bill of Rights isn’t going to fly. My deepest thanks to the Second Amendment Foundation for making this victory possible and to my clients for hanging in there. Congratulations Americans, your capital is not a constitution-free zone."

Forty "rioters" were killed in China's Xinjiang region following a series of explosions last Sunday, the regional government has said after a four-day news blackout.

Residents on Friday described heavy security in place days after the incidents - the worst incident of violence in months in Xinjiang.

Xinjiang, a resource-rich region in China's far west which abuts Central Asia, is home to about 10 million Uighur Muslims, who mostly follow Sunni Islam.

Six civilians, two police officers and two auxiliary police were also killed in the attacks in Xinjiang's Luntai county, with 54 civilians injured, the regional government's news portal Tianshan said late on Thursday.

Two "rioters" were captured, it added, while the main suspect, whose name was given as Mamat Tursun, was killed.

Chinese state media had previously only stated that two people had been killed in the incident.

The ruling Communist Party tightly restricts access to the region, and information is difficult to independently verify.

Such a delay in the release of details is not uncommon.

What's your opinion on the West Lothian Question? I think it's sort of absurd for N. Ireland, Scotland and Wales to have parliaments and devolved powers without a similar status for England. If Britain is heading in a more federalist direction (as Cameron's statements tentatively indicate) then it's going to be increasingly difficult to defend the status quo for England.

>Cornish party Mebyon Kernow is fighting for the creation of a National Assembly for Cornwall.

>Its leader, Councillor Dick Cole, challenged David Cameron, Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband to support the creation of an Assembly and called for a "mature" debate on the future of the UK.

>> No. 97173 ID: 1d0046
Well for me we are doing it backwards. If I'm honest I lean towards Powellism on this, we shouldn't have devolved power to the nation's as we did. Far better yo give power to the existing local government especially when combined with regional growth funds.

As for the situation now? Removing Scottish MPs would bring the question of government into question. The Labourites need Scotland's MPs to give them a majority. That then means that we may have a situation with a Lab govt on thw UK stage with a minority on English issues. That would affect the budgets beimg passed and social issues etc. To be honest I think the best option may be a English parliament based in either Birmingham or a northern city (Hull/York/Manchester) etc. With similar devolved power to the rest of the regions. To be honest we need to find a middle way between devolved power but keeping UK primacy. We are no closer to solving Enoch's questions now than we are when he asked it 40 years ago.

Utter shite, Kernow hasn't had a parliament since Alfred the Great. It's a waste of money and resources.

This pretty much sums up why I voted no.
I do think a federal settlement is the way forward. Te devolution genie is out of the bottle. We can't go back to just having the one UK parliament. The only sensible solution I think is an English parliament for England. And maybe one for Cornwall as well if they want to be separate from England.
>> No. 97239 ID: 5527e4
Cornwall has no industry really... its just too much money to have a separate assembly for every distinctive region.

Yorkshire want one. Hell if they get one you can bet us Midlanders will want one too. Bah, we should axe the devolved parliaments and give more power to councils, cheaper and gets the same results.

fun fact I heard today that I thought people may like. Maggie Thatcher spent more on the NHS in real terms than Red Ed is planning in his manifesto. Hows that for irony.

They decided to serve this warrant at 5:30 in the morning and without knocking on his door. He opened fire on them, killing Dinwiddie and injuring three others.

Sounds like a "I thought they were criminals breaking in" defense to me. So where are you getting the basis of your inference?

Of course, this is the kind of person yall want to defend:
>A family member told police Guy hit her in the face and twisted her arm behind her back, according to an arrest affidavit. She also said Guy took her phone away and threw it on the ground while she was calling 911. Guy was charged with assault with bodily injury to a family member and interfering with an emergency call.

This isnt the beltways or Hershelwood we are talking about. You really sound like an idiot trying to push that town as some kind of crime jungle. If you only count permenant residents and exclude military personnel the crime rates would be even lower than they are on paper.
>> No. 97209 ID: c22f9f

Maybe you're insulated but you aren't comparing it to the surrounding real estate either. Killeen manages to have 2-3 SWAT activations a month, where the rest of the county and Copperas Cove get 1-2 a year. No, compared to Chicago or Detroit that's nothing, but it's a relative shithole. Admittedly my view is also skewed because I see every damn call that happens out there and you only see news blurbs if it makes it that far and you happen to be paying attention.

There's a good reason I live on the black dirt side of the county and not in the hills.
>> No. 97213 ID: 8b7dae
Just because you've lived there, does not mean you are going to notice problems.

The town were I grew up had (several years prior to my arrival) a bunch of asian gangs that popped up after it imported a few loads of refugees. While you would be hard pressed to see a clear rise in the murder statistics, there are certain neighborhoods where the people who have lived their a few decades can tell you very consistent stories about where the prostitute houses where, who got killed, where the drugs were sold. Just because someone got murdered, doesn't mean they'll pad the numbers of a government database for an internet private eye to point his finger at. And the people in the neighborhoods where the gangs haven't set up shop may have no idea about what goes on a street over.

It ended after the police conducted two stings that managed to net most of the fuckwits, who were subsequently jailed and deported.
Mostly ended anyways. Before I left the town, another whorehouse/drugden was raided, which was incidentally next to my favorite restaurant. I had walked and stared at the place dozens of times. Never suspected a fucking thing.

She also said Guy took her phone away and threw it on the ground while she was calling 911. Guy was charged with assault with bodily injury to a family member and interfering with an emergency call.

>Court records show Guy and his attorney at the time, Dan Corbin, accepted a plea deal in November 2012. Guy pleaded guilty to interfering with an emergency call and received a sentence of 40 days in Bell County Jail and $734 in fines and court costs. The assault charge was dismissed.

Dander decided to leave off the part of the story where the assault charge was dismissed. I copy pasted that from directly below the greentext he posted on the article we both apparently read. Kind of an important detail to intentionally omit.

Even if he is a shit bag he does not deserve to be executed just because the local PD can't execute a search warrant correctly. For a situation that was dangerous enough to require climbing in through a window in the dark hours of the morning they sure didn't think before they acted. They stacked up so badly that one guy with a handgun hit all four of them and didn't get hit by any return fire at all. They tried to break in through a window like straight burglars. They didn't have control of a situation they created where a reasonable person would assume that they are not police officers.

I can't hold it against someone for giving the police the short end of the stick when they did absolutely everything to put them in that situation at all.

>The Secret Service on Saturday launched a security review to learn how a man carrying a knife was able to get inside the front door of the White House on Friday night after jumping a fence and sprinting more than 70 yards across the North Lawn — the first time that has ever happened.

>Within seconds, the man who his public defender said served three tours in Iraq — and relatives said served as a sniper — got to the front double doors of the North Portico, turned the brass knob and stepped inside the vestibule. There he was grabbed and subdued by an officer standing post inside the door. He had a folding knife with a 2 1 / 2-inch serrated blade.

>The success Omar J. Gonzalez, 42, had in breaching White House security Friday night — roughly 10 minutes after the president and his daughters lifted off the south grounds in his helicopter for Camp David — exposed new, worrisome gaps in the Secret Service’s extensive efforts to keep the first family safe and make the White House a “hard target.”

>The front door on the North Portico of the mansion was unlocked at the time. It is a frequently used door, just one flight of stairs away from the Obama’s living quarters, and until now, the Secret Service didn’t imagine an intruder could reach it.

>A trained attack dog — the Secret Service’s fail-safe measure for stopping intruders when officers cannot — was not released in this case. The reasons are under investigation.


I've heard of people jumping the fence before, but making it all the way inside? Picture is of a Secret Service Counter Assault Team responding to an earlier perimeter breach on September 11th.

Multinat UN response, fucking Russia and China could join in on the curbstomp party

They'd do it just to flex their military muscle and test their tech in action

Oh right, THAT makes it all better.

Because the Iraqis or anyone in the sandbox have an incredible history of peace, prosperity, and getting along with those guys on the other side of the hill.

Wait no... let's support a bunch of fuckwads with guns until they manage to NOT get themselves killed and put ourselves in the uncomfortable position of having to ally with former enemies to go against the people we armed in the first place. Now THAT is some poetic fucking justice.

Too bad not a goddamn thing will be learned from the whole affair.

Or, y'know, the multinational community could sanction everyone buying ISIS oil. If anyone genuinely cared more for middle east humanitarian issues than a supply of cheap oil, they could easily cripple ISIS that way.
