Al Gore is an idiot. There's no denying that. For the record, I bet Taylor understands the data just fine. That's how he knows where to cherry-pick.

For one, he's not explaining to the reader that there's a difference between polar ice cap extent and polar ice cap volume. People monitoring global warming are less concerned with polar ice extent than they are with the total amount of ice. Take a peek at the declining volume in the Arctic: "April 2015 volume was 26% below the maximum April ice volume in 1979 and 13% below the 1979-2014…

I guess at the end of the day yes I see term limits as a good idea, however we do not need them legislated for them to be in effect. More than the political leaders in this country the voters are the problem, we continue to elect bad leader after bad leader, not knowing or not understanding the voter can easily term limit any politician on their ballot. Right now we have the gov the people want (regardless…

Illinois amendment petitions present daunting task

1 year ago from the Associated Press

Board of Elections will eventually consider the validity

From from the Associated Press:

A team of nearly 20 elections workers in Springfield are sifting through thousands of pages of petitions aimed at putting a pair of proposed constitutional amendments on the November ballot.

"It's a daunting task to do this," Illinois State Board of Elections chief Rupert Borgsmiller told the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers.

He said if you laid each piece of paper end-to-end it would stretch 33 miles. That includes nearly 68,000 pieces of paper with more than 590,000 signatures from the Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits.

That group, headed by GOP gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner, wants voters to consider limiting state lawmakers' terms to eight years. Its box of petitions was 36 feet long.

It also includes a 27-foot-long box filled with about 37,000 pieces of paper with more than 532,000 signatures from the group Yes For Independent Maps. That group wants voters to approve a new way to draw the state's political maps.

State election workers must review the signatures to make sure each ballot initiative has enough to appear on the ballot. They are scanning each piece of paper to make digital records. Then they'll do a random test of 5 percent of the signatures to make sure they are from registered voters.
