Balder Regional Message Board
That might actually be where we’re headed
I cannot believe the argument used *against* the proposal in a telegram I got. It...defended debtor's prison. I'm flabbergasted, and also continuing to vote yes to spite anyone who thinks debtor's prison is a good thing.
I really don't get why people dislike a concise, not-crazy-flowery proposal. If it were illegal or malformed, it would be taken down. I appreciate it being so circumspect, since it has one clear function and no faffing about. If you oppose that function, fine. But getting mad because it's short??? Many extremely important legal things are short, consider stuff like the components of the US Bill of Rights (many of which are also single sentences)--even the most recently adopted amendment! (27th: "No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.")
Seriously, the WA gets crazier by the day. First it repeals protection of freedom of speech because the old law was too boring, too effective at protecting speech. Then it hard-averted banning capital punishment...only to accept de facto banning it. I legitimately don't care that this proposal is protesting or flippant: maybe this protest (or flippancy) is a message the WA goddamn needs to hear.
I’m glad to be here, I guess
