I'd like to read what other Californians can make of yesterday's results with the open primaries. There appear to be several races where the general election will be between two candidates of the same party, and this might lead to some moderation in our elections, which I would welcome. The old system, coupled with the lingering effects of the old gerrymander, seemed to give us only the most extreme candidates for each position.

I voted for Kashkari. I plan to vote for Brown in November, but in case something bad happens to Brown, or a long lost sex tape emerges (unlikely, but you never know) that renders him unelectable, I want to see a moderate candidate from the republicans. Donelly is frankly nuts.

Thanks, dirtbag. I voted for him too, but I feared that Machiavellian Democrats would vote for Donnelly to make sure no sane person would vote against Brown. I, for one, was prepared to vote for Brown if Donnelly were his opponent and, I hate to say, I won't be horribly disappointed when Brown wins reelection. He's done a pretty good job of governing this time around, all things considered.

I just can't bring myself to vote for an unelectable candidate (Donelly) to boost my candidate's chances.

Sketch,

A) You are wrong about the Kochtopus. Very wrong. You must be a naive person. Seriously.

B) Who cares if the "negative" adds by democrats matches or exceeds the negative adds by republicans. By and large, this is just democrats pointing out republican misinformation and hypocrisy intended to steer the debate toward the actual issues at hand, and it's about time they figured out this is the way to win an election. In fact any democrat not doing this is likely just playing the republicans vile game with them. Obama does this, and they wont even play ball with him. The GOP wishes these types of adds would just disappear.

In contrast the GOP's negative adds are by and large a perversion of reality intended to distract from the actual issues and smear the other candidates character. They are the definition of ad hominen attacks. (BTW, now that you gave some actual links/evidence to attempt to make your case, Dr F's pointing out that your character is suspect is no longer relevant. You have now provided something of evidence to judge your claims by instead. I retract my comment about that not being an ad hominen attack.)

Now, given that you have failed to even make your case that the parties participate in this activity equally, and even if you can you still need to show that the nature of the adds is identical, I'm going to say you lost this one to Dr. F.

what liberalism hath wrought:

http://www.laweekly.com/informer/2014/06/04/verbal-or-written-permission-could-be-required-for-college-sex


questions:

1. if, after initially giving consent, one party says, "no", are they in breach of contract and, therefore, subject to civil reparations?

1a. can said reparations be paid with sex?
1b. if not, who determines the value of the heretofore agreed to sex?
1b1. can the plaintiff demand a judge and/or jury with the
sexual...um...preferences to ensure a fair assessment of the
denied sex act?
1c. does agreement imply any guarantee of satisfaction? in other words
who determines when the agreed to sex is over?
1c1. what about post-coital expectations? does an agreement to sex
include cuddling and/or a follow-up phone call?
1d. since most college students are drunk when they have sex, and the
law has determined that drunkenness implies an inability to give
consent, does the law provide protection for the man whose partner
regrets her decision the next morning?


2. what accommodations does the law provide for horny, illiterate, deaf mutes? (i hereby declare all rights to the app)

3. why do libs hate sexually active college students so much? isn't the law inherently racist, sexist, homophobic, age-ist, look-ist (who's actually going to admit to consenting to sex with an ugly person?)

Jammer - Here's my post where I challenged Dr. F's claims.

The Republicans Overall Spend Way More Money?

Bullsh1t. Prove it.

As far as evil smears go, 80% of the ads put out by Obama were negative.

The Koch Brothers alone almost spent as much as a Obama spent in 2012?

More bullsh1t. Let's see some proof.

It's amusing that you accuse me of being uninformed, when you make such ignorant claims.

Neither you nor DerF have proven "Republicans Overall Spend Way More Money". I'd really like to see some numbers from 2008, which is where DerF challenged Dingus's statement about McCain.

You can move the goalposts on which kinds of negative ads are okay or not okay. It doesn't invalidate my claim.

And that last one "The Koch Brothers alone almost spent as much as a Obama spent in 2012",... that one cracked me up.

First DerF "innocently" added If you add all the Koch Brother funding together as a whole, it exceeds $1.5 billion dollars. to the bottom of a C&P article.

He repeated that claim.

Then reduced it by $600 million, saying "We can total up $900 million, the rest is speculation." But he didn't offer any proof to support that number, either.

You, like DerF, seem to think just because you claim something that makes it true. Based on what you've posted, you're both full of sh#t.

You say "You are wrong about the Kochtopus".

What are you talking about? Specifically?

I'm not defending the Koch Brothers. Even if I supported their agenda, I still don't want individuals having so much influence. Citizens United needs to be overturned. Better yet, Congress needs to pass an amendment defining and restricting all campaign finance.

John, for awhile it looked like the Controller's office was going to demonstrate an unanticipated problem with the open primary, with Dems splitting the vote, although getting more votes than Repubs, such that two Repubs would have advanced.

However, it looks like Perez has climbed back up in votes, so he should be on the ballot with your mayor. He will likely trounce her in the general election.

Generally, I have greatly favored the new system. Here in LA, we've definitely seen a move toward the center.

I also find it interesting that the Statewide vote getter with the highest percentage was John Chiang for treasurer, at 55%. Stronger than Brown, even.

I've met him several time, and heard him speak as well. He is sort of a technocrat who is an expert on numbers.

He was the one that tried to withhold the pay from legislators when they put forward a "holding place" budget to meet the statutory requirement for one, and he's taken a number of actions that have held legislator's feet to the fire.

Repubs should love him. Of course, cannot.

"both sides ran their share of nasty ads in 2012"

Yeah...except that this isn't even close to true.

Not that it matters to Kool-Aid guzzling Republidroids like Sketch, though.
