Sorry Naran, just having a little fun, that's all.
Just you wait, Mr. Brown.... if you're lucky enough to live that long, you'll find out. heh heh.
I'm just having a hard time getting my head around the shear amount of bran it must take keep that team going.
To the 8:34 post this morning...never good to correct spelling or grammer and then misspell in the same post (trust me I'm guilty all the time). Representatives, not Representattives, and I hope you were "Going", not "goting".
Also, I've seen some new campaign signs and there is a subtle difference...in some areas of the state I've travelled its "LePage" and in other areas its "Lepage"....funny but the LePage seems to creep up anywhere there is a franco-american heritage to cling to? Is it just me seeing this?
Our state retirement system needs to be overhauled. New state employees should be switched from a pension system to a 401K.
What a maroon, it's 401(k), not 401K! How can we trust him to run the state if he doesn't understand the importance of the tax code?
Seriously, I thought liberals were the only ones to get apoplectic over a spelling error, remember Dan Quayle? Barry thinks we have 57 states, Dodd thinks Greece is an island in the Caribbean and Bush made up words.
Is the failure to run spellcheck a career ending move in Maine?
I didn't hear anyone say anything about ending anyone's career.
Straw man much?
FXSTC...there is a large difference between a candidate not knowing how to spell...and a candidate hiring people who have subpar language skills to produce messages...
The candidate's managerial ability is important...his use of knowledge of his team's strengths and weaknesses...finding appropriate people to do various jobs...
The fact that he chose people with substandard language skills to produce literature...in a market where the majority of people could do the job...does not bode well for his skills...
401(k) is preferred...and 401K is acceptable...
....managerial ability is important...his use of knowledge of his team's strengths and weaknesses...finding appropriate people to do various jobs...
Hm-m. Ever read the scroll bar on CNN, FOX, or MSNBC? Plenty of spelling errors on all from time to time. The essence now is the message, (someimes carried out by volunteers) not the precision of spelling, puncutation, etc. Such nit-picking for lack of real substance.
Ed Brown, I guess you're not old enough to remember Dan Quayle.
Dolly, govenor versus governor and you can extract all of that deep knowledge from 1 letter. Impressive.
I was kidding about the 401K point, it is just as ridiculous. Abbott's campaign site has more than its share of errors, it doesn't distract from the message.
Forget spell-check, how about sight or vision check?
Looking behind the front row I see a number of
younger folks. I would say showing respect for
their elders by affording them a better spot.
A committee should proofread before anything goes public. When I was media relations manager for a Fortune 500, every draft of my news releases needed review and sign-off from 15 different people ranging from corporate finance to legal to shareowner relations to operations, as well as my public relations oversight internal committee. Some corrected statistics or facts, some caught typos, some suggested wording nuance changes. A political campaign can't go through that many sign-offs in a fast news cycle but there should be at least three separate individuals reviewing campaign material before it goes public.
"Ever read the scroll bar on CNN, FOX, or MSNBC?"
Are you trying to hold CNN...Fox...and MSNBC as paragons of good management? Cuz that canary dont fly...
But those are done realtime by stenographers...and the errors are misterpretations by the software...
"Such nit-picking for lack of real substance."
I disagree...but I do note that questions with "real substance" are heartily ignored by Lapage supporters...
LePage, not Lapage.
"LePage, not Lapage."
Uh huh...but Im not running for governor...
[quote=Dolley Madison]Uh huh...but Im not running for governor...[/quote]
Cuz that canary dont fly
shouldn't that read "Because that canary doesn't fly?"
"401(k) is preferred...and 401K is acceptable..."
Unless it's a 403(b). Wouldn't that be the applicable plan for non-profit and/or state employees?
Actually, to answer my own question, that would be a 457 plan for governmental employees. More than a typo.
...but Im not running for governor...
Uh huh, but it's interesting to note, as with "Quertly something-or-other" on another thread, you only showed up here on AMG near the beginning of this primary season. Methinks it's possible the intention could be to promote or denigrate certain candidates. How's about it, sweetheart? Does that canary fly? (snark,snark).
No...that canary dont fly either...I signed up so I could weigh in on all kinds of issues...and when I signed up here...I was not an anti Lapage voter at all...that happened as time went on...
Ok, good news Paul LePage has not hired me to help with spelling!
Thanks, Jason. I've been having nightmares about that.
Two points for gopcollegestudent. :-)
I've been through 4 years of College and completed my BA in the Fall 2007. I still have troubles with Spalling(Opps- Spelling). Just one of those things you have to learn how to do. Heck, I know people who are teaching spelling that can't spell.
not to hijack the thread, but just what are you doing now, gopcs?
I've gone back and added the offending missing "a" in representative and having disposed of the offending villan exit our hero stage right.
I was planning to run for dog catcher of Clayton Lake but now have reconsidered.
"In addition, I would take the folks pictured above on a desert island over any crew of teens. Boundless energy isn't everything. SMARTS and common sense can go a lot further."
The older I get the more I can relate to "age and treachery will always overcome youth and enthusiasm"
Truly though if you look at that picture, the older folks are prominently situated with pride front and center while the younger surround them...looks like a lot a family photo to me!
These people are seriously challenged. This is the About Us page of Professor Paul Davis's Red County Caucus:
The last person I can remember pushing his "troubled" back-ground was Clinton. Worked well for him, but not sure if it led to his being a good leader or not.
Seems like that Red County Caucus group didn't rely too heavily on the answers to their "Q & A Form" for their endorsement. Judge for yourself...http://www.redcountycaucus.com/Candidates%20RCC.htm
