Well then nothing will ever get voted on!
@DamnTootsiePopOwl, that's the idea.
@DamnTootsiePopOwl, that would probably be better than all the BS that gets voted in now.
@DamnTootsiePopOwl, the idea is that many politicians are just Bullsh!tting, things Like Obamacare may affect some people positively, and some negatively, but so far, nobody can give a clear explanation to what it is and how it will affect certain people one way and other people a different way.
@DamnTootsiePopOwl, Would? Nothing gets voted on now! :)
@DamnTootsiePopOwl, and that is different than what happens now, in what way?
@DamnTootsiePopOwl, We'd all still be British colonies
@DamnTootsiePopOwl, yeah, things move slowly enough as it is
So me and my family got as far as we could in Sherlock and Doctor Who, so you guys suggested Breaking Bad. Well for safety reasons I watched it before I let my family watch it. Boobs and underwear and meth and fighting! It was AMAZING! I Cant watch it with my family, but am definantly going to start watching it. In the meantime, what do you suggest I watch?
@EpicFailuser, with my family I mean.
@EpicFailuser, Game of Thrones. You have to start from the beginning though. You want them to get the full experience. Do it...you won't.
@EpicFailuser, or "The L Word"
@EpicFailuser, Oh, I saw the first comment and was going to suggest 'The Americans' but then I saw the second comment...
@EpicFailuser, Vikings, yes there is violence and sex but no actual nudity that I can think of and the show isn't centered around the violence, it's more centered around Viking culture. With family or not, you'll enjoy the show haha
@EpicFailuser, well, If you want to get into Anime, I recommend high school of the dead, your family will love the anime because of its "plot".
Just wanted to tell everyone I got the RA job at my school!
@Matteson, good stuff my man 😊
@Matteson, Hurray for you!! I love good news! :-)
@Matteson, dont care keep it to yourself
@kegydjffedyf, that is a bit rude. We should all be a loving community. To prove my point I will Upvote you and matteson. Feel the love.
Or the population as a whole could just elect more responsible politicians
@Camel Jockey, Good plan, really wish society hadn't degenerated too much for that to be possible.
-professors get paid off- the bill passes! You all got 100% plus the 50 points for writing so well
Good morning nightshift. 😀
@Nagato, I have to get up in 4 hours :D
@Nagato, it kind of depends on what time zone a person is in as to it being the nightshift or not. ;)
Or as citizens, we should take our right to vote more seriously and elect the most qualified individuals into the legislative branch of government.
Whoever came up with this has no idea how many bills are written and how many of them are voted on.
@JoocyJ, exact thoughts, because yes, we have more than enough time to take, and grade 200 tests a year and get anything done
@Macbeth, but...nothing gets done properly
@Macbeth, lol yeah except way more than 200... There's about 450 congressmen in the house and 100 I'm the senate. They vote on several bills a week... Ya. Lol.
I vote funny pics. Agreed?
Hey, funny pics community. I just thought I'd like to tell y'all that I broke my foot earlier this week and would like to ask for prayers. It's been difficult doing anything, and everything takes twice as long.
@Unbeknownst, your name is appropriate because, unbeknownst to you, I just ate a burrito dipped in sour-cream and cheese, followed by yet another shot of whiskey. So YOU need to pray for ME...and my friends toilet in the morning.
Nancy Pelosi said they needed to pass Obamacare to find out what the law said, no lie look it up.
@ToolOGT92, did you hear about the CA congressman who was against guns, but was illegally selling javelin missile launchers. I just hope somehow all the POS politicians get offed.
@Werewolfman, oh yeah that's a good one. The hypocrisy of our politicians knows no bounds.
They're elected to lead, not to read.
I have actually been in the front row of this room known as "The House Floor" :) there is a portrait of Moses hanging above the back door :)
Seeing how they misspelled university they probably shouldn't vote either
But who's competent enough to write the test?
But then even more nothing would happen
The only reason Obama care was passed is because of a last minute add on which says that anyone in congress does not have to pay anything for it in taxes
Just saying, it would take forever to pass anything in congress if it were this way, as well as destroy the representative system, as many individuals would go unrepresented. Additionally, what a representative or senator understands is frequently not important, so much as what the people that a representative represents believe. And if these representatives go against the popular demand in their region, they most likely will not be in DC much longer. I think the main issue with our government is not that representatives follow party lines too frequently, but that we don't care enough to send letters to our representatives so that the popular demand is heard. This inevitably leaves decisions up to the individual representative when there is little voiced opinion and leaves the decision up to the representative, who will most likely favor party lines for the benefit of their personal beliefs, more favorable committees, or deals to receive favorable positions for their individual region.
@Minor Threat , TL;DR
So, random but I was at work and found a cat half starved and lonely.. fed it a hot pocket and took it home with me. What should I name it!?
@ChronicRage, kitten* it fits in the palm of my hand
@ChronicRage, Fits in the palm of your hand? Name it Edward Elric.
@ChronicRage, Also, I'd suggest no more hot pockets. Take it to a vet or even a PetSmart or somewhere else with a veterinary dietitian. He/She will also need shots, a routine overall checkup, etc., so a vet would be best but do what you can atm. Just remember, kittens have very specific nutritional needs, and lava/death pockets aren't one of them.
That's actually a great idea
Yes except the professor could give a failing or passing grade depending on his political standpoint. So no, this would not work. Also it's disgustingly inefficient.
I don't know what to say about this...
Pretty naive idealistic typical tumblr bs written by some early childhood edu undergrad
And anyone up for reelection must present their test scores so that can be taken into account by voters.
Actually by the time the bill gets to the house and senate they are going to be voted in. Most work is done in committees. They are the ones who become the experts on the bill they amend, debate, and vote on it to be sent to the two houses and if it should pass or not. The president is the unknown factor on that bill.
Til the gas and medical companies just come in and pay the proctors and professors to pass their bills.

Who would write the exams? What if they were biased? If the writer was a Democrat, would he make it difficult for Republicans to pass, therefore lessening their voice in government? InsteAd
@Sexypony, sh!t. Instead of studying for exams shouldn't Congress be actually attempting to fix the bill, get it passed or not passed? What if progress comes to a standstill because in their already busy lives Congress spends all their time studying (a lot of bills are presented) for a political advantage? Aren't a lot of the time the do
@Sexypony, d@mnit the delete button is right next to the send button. Aren't the social impacts the center of the debate in the first place? And wouldn't this give a ton of power to partisan professors? What about alliances? All
@Sexypony, this is very frustrating. Anyway all I'm saying is to think a little more thoroughly about these kinds of things.
I'm at the park
This is a better system. Please do it
I just made caramel choc-chip biscuits :D
Hey everyone reply where you're from! I wanna get to know you guys since it's the nightshift
Bravo, good sir, bravo. I really hope this doesn't start a comment war, because it's just good common sense. Our representatives have no business passing laws if they can't even understand them... *coughcough nancy pelosi coughcough*
