Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

No-way, Per. Has to be the riding system in the US and Canada. Solely popular vote may work for small, less diversified countries but not here. Just because a region may not have a vast population doesn't mean it shouldn't have an equal say. In fact, here in Canada, I would like to move further awa...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

But this means the US coould eventually switch to a system where the candidate that gets more votes always wins. Once they've accomplished that no-brainer, That makes way too much sense for old Hoss out in the sticks of Wyomin’ “Can’t be lettin’ them uneducated black folk havin’ the ah....hilbility...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

... the Electoral College is Proportional Representation ... yadda yadda yadda Current allocation is based on the 2010 census. Have you seen the nonsense proposals we are being asked to vote on? No, I have not. But proportional reoresentation typically means that eg 15% of the votes gives you 15% o...

Re: US Erection 12 *AND* 16

... the Electoral College is Proportional Representation ... Uhm... no it's not. It differs from state to state. None, as I understand it, are truly proportional, some follow the congressional districts within the state but most are winner take all. And their weight is not proportional to the popul...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Ya it will sting if Rodin puts up 30 goals for the Ducks. highly unlikely this would happen, he was given multiple chances but things got in the way. I wish him the best and glad he is not taking a roster spot on the Canucks. 30 is a stretch, but he has the skill and hockey smarts to become a more ...

Re: Canucks Young Guns

Well, one of the local papers put up a live stream - for paying customers. So I've now bought a one month digital subscription at a discount. :lol: So, really crappy pre-season hockey. Also a friendly fundraiser between a bunch of NHL players and basically a beer league team, so what can you expect....

I didn't log on this morning expecting to learn the origin of Swedish meatballs :o Huh. Really? Well, you also learnt how to do the blood eagle on your enemies. I guess Dank had that one in his back pocket but didn't want to risk a major in a Stanley Cup final game. Yeah, it'd be hard to do without...
