    meh... I got what you were saying but if you read it, it could be taken either way. Could mean "I don't care that she is for or against it... doesn't matter to me." which is the way I think they took it when reading that sentence.

    Reading through her "uncompromising principles" made me sick to my stomach.
    She's a kid. Everything is written in stone mentally at that age. She will compromise when she realizes that everything isn't black and white and written in stone.

    Hope it works out for her.
    Head football coach is from the division II football team Valdosta State. It's where I grew up. I'm a fan of his especially seeing him make these big upsets and almost make bigger upsets. Looks like you guys did well in picking him up.

    She doesn't know what it's like to buy a house, pay bills, try raising a family in the current economy, etc.



    I read her campaign page, and I was unimpressed.

    West Virginia has a part-time legislature and most legislators have full-time jobs. If elected, I will attend WVU during the Fall Semester, defer the Spring Semester and attend summer classes. I already know the ropes and I can multitask too.

    Trust me with your vote and I will make you proud!



    That reminds me of my nieces begging for a puppy, saying they clean up and completely take care of it. It's easy to say, but it's hard to do. She is starting college and major role in her community at the same time. I would have been hesitate to vote for her.

    Then she sites her work experience:

    Student Teller for Eastern Panhandle Federal Credit Union
    Apple Crest Orchard
    Sunset Water Services


    About Saira - dev


    I just don't understand why the people in her district voted for her...
    So, she's out of touch? Hell, that's 98% of the clowns that are in office, anyway!

    No.

    Old white guys know what's best for the youth of America.

    It was that way during the Vietnam era, when they knew that the draft was character building, even when it ended in a body bag.

    Youth are part of the fabric of society, they deserve a voice.

    But look at this, she's 18, has shattered a major glass ceiling, done a first like Rosa Parks and the focus gets shifted to ONE issue...her stance on SSM.

    Oooh...

    Come on petty people. I have supported what I called gay marriage since about 1997, people in my church oppose it. I still like them, although misguided. This "girl" did what nobody this forum could ever hope to do.

    She deserves some respect for that. I mean people were orgasmic when Obama got a Democratic Senate Nomination HANDED to him without lifting a finger...

    1) I don't think I've read anybody in this thread disrespect her. Disagree with her perhaps but not disrespect.
    2) "like Rosa Parks"? Really? Come on with the stretch.

    Do you not know what the phrase "I don't care for" means?
