SoH Virtual Congress
I'm going to try it.
I don't even know what that is.
I left when someone tried to make himself the Independent Party leader, and only one other guy realized what a crock of **** that was.
You mean this party? en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Independent_Party
Nope. I mean he tried to wrangle control of all the independents.
This user is currently being ignored
I have fun with it...but it should only be for ppl that want to be involved, which is why I refuse to share polls for it.
The debates involve actual facts and evidence vs "well if I think it, it must be right" bullshit that plagues SoH.
Its meant to be fun, if it doesnt appeal to you, ignore the account.
What do they even do? I don't get it at all.
Meh... To each his own though. I do get tired of the shared polls.
Running for president
Not a fan at all. I don't even read the question. I just choose whatever answer is on the right and move on.
I love it!
Not a fan, but not opposed to it either. I am rapidly becoming not a fan of having to see polls with such limited appeal routinely shared though. It's a fine thing for those who are interested, but shouldn't be shared beyond the sphere of interest.
I ignored them earlier this week.
That's a great idea! Would it stop me from seeing shared VC polls?
Asking for a friend 😉
I didn't think of that. I really don't like getting the polls.
Twss, tell your friend yes it will. No complaints so far.
I'll let her know 😉 Thank you for the info!
I ignored earlier VC this week too. I was getting all of their polls because they were shared.
I just pulled that trigger myself, alynn.
I really thought I was the only one getting irritated by those polls. Good to know I'm not the only one!
I couldn't stand them. I was around when someone suggested starting the VC.
I thought I was too! I just kept voting to make them go away. Then I started down voting too. Felt like a meanie, but GEEZ! So. Many. POLLS!
I feel like I remember that as well, cpaswr.
I believe you were. I did the same thing. I just voted to get the poll out of my feed.
The VC is the only one that I have deliberately ignored.
Same. I don't ignore other users. There's been no need. But the VC has been in my feed far too much lately.
I think it has potential to serve as a catalyst for change, both in addressing issues and improving interest in politics. Too many voters are apathetic and uninformed.
I like it but have never used it. I do follow them.
I have no interest in it personally (I get enough problematic political discussions in the regular polls, thanks) but if people want to use it as a laboratory to explore politics, I think that's kinda cool.
I don't mind the occasional shared poll announcing major changes or inviting other users to play, but I've seen a lot shared recently that I don't think needed to be... And I get a little testy when an actual vote gets shared because it's one more
poll I have to ignore for a week & try hard not to accidentally vote on.
I did vote on one recently by mistake & that made me even more testy, since it was proposing something that in real life I would be very, VERY opposed to.
Haha we don't mind if you vote on the VC polls! But I hear you with the "shares", seems to be a common theme, we ought to restrain that, we don't want the VC to come off as abrasive, or a nuisance.
Well, I hate to throw the vote off! And I'm sure I'm not the only one, if the poll has been shared to a lot of people.
I know I sound like a crabby old person, but can everyone PLEASE stop sharing the VC polls? Pretty please? Much appreciated.
Now get off my damn lawn!
I would also ask that everyone who HAS shared one of these polls please kick themselves in the nuts.
Bama doesn't have any nuts!!
Political, I'll vote for you as VC president if you make my previous request into law and require all participants to post video of it on YouTube.
Bamagirl is part of this nonsense?
Just vote for me, Milk. I'll make you Secretary of old grumpy people. 😂
I would like to see you submit that legislation. lol
Bama is a sweetie, but yes, she's been sharing VC polls like crazy lately. I can't recall anyone else for sure.
Political, I will also vote for you for VC Prez, so long as you do as Milk asks.
I ignored the VC earlier this week because I don't want to see their polls.
Of course! We'll defund VC together. Lol..I'm never going to get elected now.
I think DrReid was sharing VC polls. I think he has been banned. Can anyone confirm this? If he was, I have no idea why.
Probably banned for stupidity.
Why not? It's the most conservative thing you could do! The virtual debt is over §637,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000!!!! Defund it now!!!
Yes, he was banned for repeatedly making negative polls about specific users.
We actually have a budget. 😂
My daughter has a little purse with play money, too.
It isn't as cute when adults and teenagers do that.
Is it bad that we fuss and fight over fake money?
Political, we need to defund literally everything! Liquidate all of our virtual assets and pay back virtual China! They own over 3,627% of our virtual debt! Their virtual economy is completely dependent upon owning that much of our virtual debt! So
Is it also bad that deals are made behind closed doors?
I'm actually going to use that Derek.
if we pay them off virtually, their virtual economy will collapse and they will no longer be a virtual threat! I mean, they're stockpiling virtual nukes as we speak!! It's time to put virtual national security at the top of our virtual priorities!!
Can I be your virtual chief of staff?
If we even have that.
Political, you are one of my faves. But for the LOVE, yes to all of the above. I know it's a polling app, but I'm not into politics and neither are many others.
The VC can stay where it is, out of my polls. Please 😘
Derek! It's going to be ok! Our virtual scientists just found an untapped virtual goldmine on virtual federal land! It's enough virtual gold to pay off all of our virtual debt and ensure our virtual prosperity for virtual decades to come!
I've never shared a VC poll. Well, only by accident. Shhhh! Skinner will use this against me as he talks about how "bipartisan" and "inclusive" he is.
Oh goodness. I can't wait to plagiarize y'all's material. At least, I didn't write a 3 paged typed executive order.
But Milk, have you seen the conspiracy that the virtual gold is REALLY the same virtual gold that USED to be stored in Virtual Ft Knox?? It's true! They virtually lost it decades ago and it's only recently been found! Hence why it was on virtual
The only problem is that a particularly ornery highly endangered virtual red crested wombat used the virtual mine entrance as a virtual nesting ground! If we virtually disturb him he'll never virtually reproduce and will go extinct (virtually).
😂😂😂😂😂I can't stop laughing. If I lose the election because of y'all so be it.
No, derek! Don't you remember VC HR2754 2012 wherein members voted in the affirmative that the virtual gold in Fort Knox should be sold to virtual China for free virtual advance copies of all future Battlefield video games?!
The VEPA will never allow us to get it back! We need a Virtual Executive Order to virtually reign them back in! They're virtually out of control! All of the virtual bureaucracies have way too much virtual power! I heard that the VEPA has been
Virtually causing businesses to go under because their over regulation is virtually impossible to abide by! Virtual coal is all but extinct!!
Go into the last VC poll. Look at my comment. Lol
Oh wait, that bill was never passed because the VC president at the time got grounded from SOH by his mom because she found him looking at the SOHAH polls, and he didn't return until after the session ended.
But the virtual gold in Virtual Ft. Knox was defined in §1343 of said virtual bill as "virtual chocolate bullion virtually covered in virtual gold colored foil!" It was a virtual lie!!!
Political, has anyone ever proposed legislation on how to handle virtual alien attacks on the VC?
You may want to fill that void.
Are they virtual illegal aliens?????
Oh my virtual God! They're taking our virtual jobs and mooching off of our virtual entitlement system! I paid my virtual 354% each paycheck into virtual social security and they reap the virtual benefits!! This needs to stop!!!
😂😂😂please post these type of comments in VC polls. That's just great.
What? Are you trying to get me virtually arrested?!
I deeply regret starting this thread.
Milk, I need you virtually by my side! Someone has to virtually take over the VC and make known their virtual atrocities! The virtual citizens have a virtual right to know! Join me on the latest VC poll!! I'm already virtually there!
I'm getting me some virtual prostitutes with my virtual surplus.
Virtual hookers and virtual blow can't get me virtually arrested, right?
I might even be virtual President.
"I virtually did not have virtual sex with that virtual woman, virtual Monica lewinsky."
I literally laughed out loud.
You have got to go see LostTexan's reply to Derek. Too funny
Is that virtually noted?
Haha, that's right. Virtually typed and noted.
Don't forget to virtually note that I want my virtual prostitutes to have your virtual Governor's Mansion.
Don't forget to write in your virtual diary.
You can have the governor's mansion. I'm taking the virtual White House!
See what y'all did. Y'all virtually made me lose the virtual election to Skinner. I'm now going to virtually cry because this is so virtually funny.
I'm so relieved. I get an actual Governor's Mansion while Skinner gets a virtual house.
Well that's what you get for virtually talking about your virtual sex scandal. How can you expect to keep the virtual evangelical vote with that track record?
It will virtually get the Catholic vote, skinner.
Very very dumb, in my opinion...
While your legislation doesn't actually do anything, you can go through the process of drafting bills and voting on specific proposals.
Yeah...no offense at all (seriously if you enjoy it good for you!) but that sounds like not my thing at all
I second that and call for a vote on HR3945, otherwise known as the "pretend congress is for nerds" act. My hope is that this new legislation will help to defund virtual congress and expose it for the silly nonsense that it is.
Mr Political, you have used up all your time for this session! Please sit down!
They actually told me that I debated too much in a thread.
Political, if elected, will you lead the charge to defund the virtual congress???
You, Milk, and CDFL
There are too many rules involved in it, and they don't have a reputation of being inclusive. I'm running for President to change all of that BS.
I don't even understand what it's supposed to do....
It's a way to debate specifics that might be included in a real bill. It's a good way of really thinking about what you do or don't support.
Yes, please explain
It can be fun. I urge you to try it out. Derek, you might have fun drafting a pro-gun bill.
I tried it a while back.... All it seemed to do is cause debates for fake laws that don't do anything if enacted so voting is pointless and the elections are simply a popularity contest...
They wouldn't let you run. I remembered that. 😂😂
That's because I wouldn't have done anything.... Nor would I have done any fake things either... 😊
Do you have lobbyists? I would make a great virtual lobbyist. I would toss ungodly amounts of virtual bribes around and sponsor free virtual trips to virtual resorts to virtually wine and dine virtual politicians to virtually blackmail them later.
😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Milk for the win!!!!
Lol...the "virtual lobbyists" bribe people to vote for you by offering positions in VC for their endorsement.
I had a similar experience, Derek, except they wouldn't even respond to me, and then someone contacted me in an old poll telling me I wasn't following their rules of order.
So then I changed my tag line to Virtual Congress Emperor. That made them mad
I know. That has happened to me several times. People take it way too seriously.
