While midterm coverage is largely focused on the parts of Congress that do very little, vital (and bizarre) midterm elections are going unexamined. State legislators pass a lot of bills, and some of that efficiency is thanks to a group called ALEC that writes legislation for them. It’s as shady as it sounds!

  1. 5:17 that man needs to memed. RIGHT NOW. in fact, as your reading this comment, please find a picture of that amazing man and meme him. the world needs it.

  2. Wait why were the things that those reps said at 3:40 to 4:35 bad?
    She was just recalling her experience of teaching, backed by statistical data: Black people do worse in schools.
    And yes, Islam is a fucking cancer.

  3. As ridicolous as it is to toss dwarfs around, creating a law prohibiting this is even weirder. Why on earth does the state of Florida allow for people-throwing for everyone BUT dwarfs?!^^ That makes no sense. If you actually feel the need, that the throwing of people in bars needs to be prohibited by a state law, why not go all-in and just ban people-throwing all together?^^

  4. My grandmother was a Representative of Arkansas and she allowed me to see the bills get passed. From what I remember, they would have some one explain it and you just voted. It was all very fast and seemed like people might have not understood the bills, but I was very young too.

  5. New Hampshire, where they take the term "Citizen Legislature" so seriously, that they only have just over one and a quarter million people, and 400 representatives in the house alone. That's 1 representative for every 3,300 people. If the U.S. Congress had that kind of representation, they would have almost 100,000 representatives. New Hampshire takes the term "Citizen Legislature" so seriously, they only pay each representative and senator only 100 dollars a year, so they have to hold down a job elsewhere or else be retired. How better to measure the health of an economy, or get in touch with your constituents, then to literally work side by side with them. New Hampshire, where they take government, at all its levels, very seriously.

    Sincerely, a proud New Hampshirite.

  6. If someone is going to publicly state they have a conflict of interest on the current issue, how the hell can anyone argue against the conflict of interest? How removed from reality do you have to be to tell someone they have no conflict of interest when that person is personally stating they do have a conflict of interest.

  7. Someone tell the "let my people go" guy know of Shokran's album exondus, which is about that part of the bible

  8. The media is so liberal it's actually disgusting. Hate to burst everyones bubble but not everything conservative people say and do is bad.
