811378 bob : i used to smoke ,,gave it up 20 yrs ago
811379 charliedontsurf : I just wanted to show you how paranoid Talib can be, a wink to a friend saying hello is part of the "vast right-wing conspiracy" lol
811380 bob : yes i see
811381 bob : now explain....the house.....and senate.....the difference?
811382 charliedontsurf : Whatever you guys are seeing there, we're seeing ten times as much.....it's bewildering
811383 bob : here i can watch ....fox, cnn, cnbc and a few others
811384 bob : al jazera, bbc
811385 charliedontsurf : The House of Representatives has 435 members. The Senate 100. Each state regardless of population gets two senators, Reps are meted out according to population
811386 bob : democrats control the senate?
811387 bob : is the house congress?
811388 charliedontsurf : So California will have 2 Senators, like Utah but will have many more Reps because they have more citizens (and non-citizens lol)
811389 charliedontsurf : The Senate AND the House comprise the Congress
811390 charliedontsurf : Right now the Dems control the House, the Reps the Senate
811391 charliedontsurf : Each has different duties and they do things differently
811392 bob : so even if the impeachment case goes to the senate it wont pass
811393 charliedontsurf : The Speaker of the House (Pelosi) is third in line to the Presidency after Pres and VP, regardless of party
811394 bob : do you consider having 2 houses is a good form of government
811395 charliedontsurf : The House investigates and then it goes to the Senate. To remove a President, two-thirds of the Senate must support removal, hard to do
811396 charliedontsurf : I think our form of government is good, yes
811397 bob : no system provides democracy
811398 charliedontsurf : There are three equally power divisions....executive (pres), legislative (congress) and judicial (courts) all with designated powers and each i s to check on the others
811399 charliedontsurf : powerful*
811400 charliedontsurf : checks and balances, division of power
811401 bob : i like that you get to vote for judges and police chiefs
811402 charliedontsurf : Don't you?
811404 bob : judges are appointed as is the police commissioner as he is called
811405 charliedontsurf : That's at the local level, but yes...still, few people really KNOW their local police chief or a judge, so too often they vote for the candidate in "their party"
811406 charliedontsurf : appointed by whom?
811407 bob : a non partisan body
811408 charliedontsurf : who vs whom, where is Ana Bolena? lol
811409 bob : same as in Britain
811410 bob : whom is correct there i believe
811411 charliedontsurf : When the US was formed they specifically intended to have a "non-parliamentary"s system
811412 charliedontsurf : It is whom, yes
811413 charliedontsurf : They had lived under that system in England and wanted to try something else....
811414 bob : the judiciary here is non political
811416 charliedontsurf : Few people are really non-partisan......and even fewer would admit it
811417 charliedontsurf : It's a matter of degree
811418 charliedontsurf : Bob, you have an annoying habit of just disappearing during a conversation lol
