Default here's a list of senators who voted AGAIST precluding rape in contracting

U.S. Senate: Legislation & Records Home > Votes > Roll Call Vote

this is the list of crazy ******* YOU voted for, who feel that your tax money should be able to go to contractors who put clauses in contracts which prevent filing rape charges. So if you're going about your business at work and lets say you're gang raped by several men and locked in a crate for an extended period, you can't sue your rapists.

an we also have Robert "White ------" Byrd and the recent convert Arlen Specter who's hardly a Dem. Hmmmm, I wonder why they didn't show up to vote on this one? What a strange coincidence. Whatever they were doing, hopefully the were not receiving a Nobel.

The constituents of these people can't even spell arbitration, let alone tell you what it means.

The GOP will be defunct as a party within my lifetime. I'm calling it now. With young people voting Dem in huge numbers, and moderates leaving the party by the day, they cannot survive on the Christian base alone, and if they leave the Christian base and garner moderates and the youth, the Dems will destroy them. RIP.

This is unfortunately quite true. It's sad to see so many people jump on the Democratic bandwagon when many do not even know the difference between the two.

A Brief History of American Major Parties

It's also sad to see people voting for politicians when they don't know where they stand. Case in point: this thread. Remember back to the election '08 where we were told "EVERYONE MUST VOTE!!"? That should have been changed to "anybody who understands what they're voting for can vote." Essentially a voting compromise for the many uninformed/dumb people and the "smart" people in office was created in 1787 at the Constitutional Convention. Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution; Thus the popular vote and the electoral vote was hereby borne. I guess there will always be ignorant/uninformed people in the world.

I have a dream that someday, these ignorant, uninformed people will not hold public office in our federal government.

You shouldnt be able to sue rapist. They should be shot in the face with something large at close range, before you could get the chance to sue them.

I agree, there is no corruption in the democrat party; everything will be better when everyone is not only oppressed but broke as ****.

I disagree with the party line voting of this amendment, however, I clearly remember a bunch of democrats calling the removal of funding to ACORN unconstitutional, this is all just politics, it's not going to end regardless of who's in power.

so now you're going to compare a fake racket with Acron to gang-rape and imprisonment?

pretty sure acorn is at least a half-legit racket. but only because they're stupid.

the GOP will probably remain alive though. with the sarah palins and michael steeles running the tragic show.

I didn't vote for either of those old dust bags from GA.

GOP= Bunch of old buble thumpers who do everything they say their against when no one is looking. Speaking of moron GOP, I make a point to drive by the governer's mansion here while honking my horn and yelling choice words...usually between the hours of 11pm and 2 am. My horn is very loud.

Was that the only thing included in the amendment? Usually there are about 500 pages of legalise in everything they vote on - makes me wonder if there wasn't something else that the 30 senators were voting against.

well it was sponsored by Al Franken, so who knows, I didnt feel like reading through it.

Here's another idea though: The employees at Halliburton don't have to work there if they don't agree with the arbitration clause...

You can read it. It recieved "light" pork in the form of additional money for defense and troops but nothing outrageous. Apparently a few of these idiots argued that it was an extension of unnecessary red tape. They should tell that to the woman who was gang raped and locked in a box.

Sorry, my impression coems from the redneck biblehumping ***** that "rule" here and get all pissy when someone mentions the thought of selling alcohol on Sunday. Or the Governer here who only impliments things like water restrictions only when the lake is 4ft away from being useless and suddenly wanting to re-zone the norther GA border because some guy with a walking stick and a rock didn't get the border right 200 years ago....because Tenn. has a lovely little supply of water about 1 mile north of the border.
Or the morons who got all pissy when the 10 Commandments were ordered to be taken out of state buildings and schools.

Or they can be asked to sign the arbitration clause, or pack-up and go home. Can you seriously suggest that its acceptable for tax money to be used on a contract with an organization that provides special clauses which specifically enable rape with impunity to the rapist? Please, come the **** on with the partisan, liberty bullshit.

Don't read it, but defend the rape enabling contract. That's a great idea.
