I have to pump in the Fing shower because it's a Fing Safety Violation to have the windows covered in the offices. Anyway, off to the shower room to gross out an entire population of veterans and active duty men who would prefer I not use that room for pumping but have no better solution so they just shower at the gym now!

    MN wouldn't actually go with ya'll. They love the 2nd amendment as much as their mothers.
    The military doesn't provide bfing employees a place to pump? That's disgraceful.

    There are in places where there is a large concentration of females. I'm in a career field that has less than 5 females worldwide in a (new) building designated as training for woodwork that had a few empty offices. The shower room is actually a perfect pump room as it is just One shower with a sink and as I said before- no one else uses it but me now. If I worked in a normal career field or wanted to travel the 5 minutes to the hospital there are numerous places to pump. I am just bitter about my beautiful office being lost almost at the same moment I need it. Or if I bugged someone. It just wasn't thought of when this particular building was designed and I seriously doubt it will *ever* be an issue when I'm done.

    Ok For real going to pump (with the stupid bustier thing that makes my back hurt!)

    Interesting point... Texas is the most anxious to leave? Seems like they wouldn't last very long without US funds to cover their deficit...

    So is secession a reasonable response if you don't like the outcome of a democratic election ("democratic" in this sense not meant to reference the Democratic party, but instead the process of democracy)? Do you think states should be allowed to secede if that is what the majority of the people in that state want? Would you want your state to secede if you did not like the outcome of a presidential election (generally speaking - obviously this election would be relevant to Conservatives, but an election where a Conservative won such as 2000 and 2004 or future elections would be relevant to liberals.) Any other thoughts?
    I haven't read a single post yet on this. I thought I'd reply but it's like 6 pages long all the sudden!

    Basically, I think if people want to separate due to a democratic result, they are not very... democratic in nature and don't really support democracy. I'd say they pretty much want things how they want them or they want to run off crying. A lot of people had to be patient through 8 long years of a certain other president, and yet the other team didn't want to separate from the country...though I am sure they wanted to really badly lol. Perhaps it's a big lesson of (in)tolerance.

    So am I the only one who has the occasional fantasy of living on an island where everyone agrees and gets along and has the same goals and principles?

    I am thinking tropical island, Maybe a Swiss Family Robinson type... Can anyone tell I have not gotten a ton of sleep?

    I was looking at the petition for CO to secede this morning, and I would say that at least half of the signatures are either from people who decline to say where they are from, or who admit to being from other states.

    Debate question 2: If you don't even live in that state, why would you sign a petition asking to let them secede???

    Well heck, if a good portion of California falls into the Pacific you could live out your fantasy there
