10/3    Hypothetical moral question: if you know someone who has the
        opposite political stance as you but know that the person isn't
        sure whether he/she wants to vote, would you:
        1) encourage that person to vote because it's in the American
           spirit to vote?
        2) don't bother that person to vote because he/she will
           nullify your vote.
        Please explain your answers.
        \_ I think everyone should vote who's paying attention.  There's
           something to be said for the wisdom of democaracy, but I think
           something to be said for the wisdom of democracy, but I think
           that breaks down if the voter isn't paying attention.
        \- 1. i dont think this is a moral question typically
           2. not voting is a form of voting.
           longer answer: if you are persuaded the way you are voting is
           "moral" and the other party is not ... like say they believe
           in torturing people ... the moral act is to try to persuade them
           to do the "right thing". now in some cases it's reasonable to
           agree to disagree or the other party may reasonably have different
           interest from you. i think discussing issues matters more than
           voting. but to answer your question directly, #2. --non-voter.
        \_ Cast an additional vote on their behalf for your candidate. -rdaley
        \_ It doesn't matter. -DIEBOLD

10/7    In practice, how long are HIGH SCHOOL transcript kept? I'm asking
        because I'm wondering if people can dig up my shady past.
        I was a bad kid.
        \_ I would doubt that they are ever destroyed. What would you
           do about it in any case? Try not to worry too much about
           things you have no control over.

5/19    Mildred Patricia Baena looked ugly even for her age.  Why would Arnold

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

6/8     I cannot believe Carly Fiorina is a legitimate candidate. I would
        sooooooo love to vote out Boxer, but Carly completely ruined HP.
        \_ The Republican party shall rise again!
        \_ Much as the left has realized that, in the realm of pundrity, they
         can field loud, ignorant, blowhards just as well as the right, so
         has the right evidently realized that they too can field an
