Social Liberal Union Regional Message Board

The Communalist Federation of North American Republics wrote:She'll be trying to force her way into the debates just as she attempted in 2012. It's unjust that a bipartisan commission controls our access to information. Gubernatorial debates across the country include third parties all the time (she debated Romney in the early 2000s when they ran for governor of Massachusetts), so it makes no sense that they be excluded from presidency debates.

This will only take away from the debates though... Just like in the primary debates, when people were just insulting each other, Trump can win, but with substantive issues Trump can't. The more the debates can be about Trump's inexperience, and the less about Jill wanting to get in, the worse Trump will get off.

Having legitimate opposition to neoliberal and fascist proposals takes away from the debate? Who's to say that Jill will start insulting people? Hillary has already called a large portion of Trump supporters "deplorable" and Trump is...well he's Trump. We're already seeing this kind of bull; having Stein and Johnson at the debates would have turned it over to actual policy discussion. And again, in the very state that this first debate is happening in, the gubernatorial debate did not exclude third parties. Hawkins from the Green Party was in attendance as well as smaller third parties including that novel candidate Jimmy McMillan from the Rent is Too Damn High Party. I do not remember that collapsing into insult hurling or absurdity, but this two-party debate may very well turn out that way.

Only a few minutes into the debate, it seems as Hillary really came prepared. Trump is making quite a fool of himself, and I'm finding it quite enjoyable. If only Johnson and Stein were admitted.

Hillary's emails are come to haunt her again, while Trump falls back on vague, ineloquent responses.

Hillary calls Trump racist, and Trump calls Hillary ineffective and subsequently proceeds to blame everything on her.

Hillary appears to be calm and tries to lighten the mood, while Trump ends up looking like an angry orange in denial.

So the target of the condemnation has been deleted? Why not repeal then, unless it's a statement of historical significance?

It is a statement of historical significance. I think I may just abstain from voting because I see the arguments of both sides.

Ok, I'll wait and see what the delegate decides.

Statement regarding my absence

After much deliberation, I've decided to openly share the reason why I have been inactive for several weeks now, will most definitely be in the next few months and maybe even indefinitely. So, about that "good family issue"...

Both my girlfriend and I have worked in the humanitarian field, with my girlfriend still active in a humanitarian office job here in the Netherlands. Several months ago, I received a text message from a former coworker at the UN that they were looking for families with experience in dealing with war traumas to take care of Syrian orphans located in humanitarian camps - perhaps for a few weeks, maybe more, depending on what would be needed. It did not take long for my girlfriend and I to offer a home to one such Syrian orphan. About three weeks ago, we spoke with Amir for the first time. About a week later, I got hold of pictures of the Italian refugee camp Amir was located in, and like Amir said, it was not exactly clean and most definitely not a good place to live for an 11-year-old kid. As such, it left me with no other option than to try to expedite the process of getting him here.

Amir arrived in the Netherlands on September 17. He did not have anything but the clothes he was wearing and his UNHCR refugee card. Eleven days later, he's started learning Dutch, has multiple Dutch friends and is fast working towards a normal-ish kid life again. Next week, he'll be going to a Dutch primary school for the very first time. He's not been in school for quite a while, so we do expect it to take quite a while for him to get used to it again, especially given the language barrier. However, he's proven to be a very happy, upbeat kid who will take any chance he'll get to learn, so he'll get there. This is not to say that he doesn't have any issues related to his past, but they are being dealt very well by him, assisted by highly specialized mental health care professionals.

As I think all of you will understand, the above process isn't easy, not even with a kid like Amir. Even with experience working in war zones and having experienced what the effect on mind and body of living in such a situation is like, it is still hard to deal with. As such, especially given that my girlfriend does not have too much freedom in choosing her own hours at work, I've basically become a semi-stay-at-home dad at age 24 :) Most of the time, except for working about 20 hours per week and teaching for another six, is spent on helping Amir.

Grolsch - this is such an admirable thing to do. That takes a whole lot of courage and commitment and it's just amazing! Much respect! (::)

You have my complete and utter respect, Grolsch. Wishing Amir, your girlfriend, and you the best of luck.
