Republican Poll Shows 71% of Missourians Like the Nonpartisan Court Plan


This blog spends lots of time talking about the Missouri Nonpartisan Court Plan, mostly because it is being attacked by the radical fringe of the Republican Party, including Governor Matt Blunt, Jeff Roe and the Adam Smith Foundation. Who can blame Blunt, his ship is sinking and judges are easy to pick on. Attorney General Jay Nixon is raising just as much money as Blunt in the governor's race (now that campaign contribution limits are back in place) and Blunt's choice of Mitt Romney isn't selling well with the Religious Right in Missouri.

Public Opinion Strategies - a Republican organization - conducted the study for Justice at Stake, Missourians for Fair and Impartial Courts, and the Missouri Institute for Justice.

A few highlights of the poll:

Bipartisan majorities oppose many of the proposals to change the system recently floated by critics, while 73 percent of those surveyed want Missouri judges to be independent of elected officials like the Governor and state legislature.

By a ratio of more than two to one, voters believe that the Supreme Court of Missouri makes its decisions based on the state’s laws and constitution, not the personal beliefs of its seven members. Self-identified Republicans are the most likely to feel this way – 68 percent of Republicans polled feel law trumps ideology for decisions made by the state’s highest court.

Only 1 of every 50 Missouri voters see changing the way state judges are selected as a top priority for the Governor and state legislature. Voters are far more likely to cite health care, taxes and government spending, and public education as top priorities.


Don't look for the fringe to give up - until they can get thier wackos on the bench, they won't be happy. The Rule of Law is not the goal, its obtaining thier version of justice (which ain't justice for all).

1.
NEW OT VIII
2.
STUDY AND PROCEDURE
3.
DEBRIEF
4.
1991
5.
From recall this is a record of the full OT VIII procedure of the Church of
6.
Scientology given on the Free Winds ship as delivered in 1991. Security there is very tight
7.
with detectors at the doors so that no original data can be removed. This debrief is
8.
something the Independent Field/Free Zone Scientology has been waiting many years to
9.
see. It is not the original nor is it a perfect record but it is accurate and will get the result
10.
if followed by a competent solo auditor who is flat on all earlier levels with all overts off.
11.
The wording of the processes are exact to the best of my recall and the procedures are exact
12.
for sure. Any differences are extremely minor (if at all). I spent several weeks reconstruct-
13.
ing all this from memory (needless to say I have an excellent memory as a result of the
14.
rundown). I am breaking security as I disagree that this should only be released to an elite
15.
in Scientology. I do, however, ask it not be released to psyches or “squirrels” or anyone
16.
who will break the Independent Security Network and allow it to get back to the Church
17.
of Scientology. It would be best if they do not find out that we have it. Please treat this
18.
data responsibly. It is the key to the only truth possible.
19.
The whole secret involves what truly is the relationship of the Supreme Being to
20.
each individual thetan. To simply say it’s “me” is oversimplified to tears but has some
21.
truth to it. The real key is the perception and ability to have full certainty and, therefore,
22.
perception on all confusions and distortions of MEST and form and life units as well as
23.
the ability to perceive exact identity and its full relationship to its true source and history
24.
from its origin as the theta body, the true 8th Dynamic In order to truly view this as a
25.
present time beingness one has to clean up, once and for all, his own confusions regarding
26.
these points. The key is being flat on all earlier levels and being honest with self as to the
27.
truth on each step of the rundown.
28.
In doing this procedure one has to acknowledge the lie of time and persistance and
29.
the lie of the illusion that MEST is solid and unchangable. Another key given is the fact
30.
that a being can exist independent of time and present time and can choose any point on
31.
the track as his present time. The PT body can confuse this, as attention to some degree
32.
is always hung up on the PT body. This fixes the thetan into one present time and one time
33.
stream when in fact there are many as you will discover.
34.
Do not attempt this rundown if you are incomplete on any earlier level, incomplete
35.
on or in need of “sec checks,” involved in any out ethics, PTS or involved in any pressing
36.
PT situations that call your attention back to this present time. If you are in need of review
37.
on any point above, get it before starting the rundown or it will miss and be meaningless
38.
or wasted.
39.
If your attention is in any way governed by OT 7 (NOTS) or earlier materials on OT
40.
levels, this rundown will miss and be wasted. This also goes for out int. If int/ext is a
41.
concern at all, get reviewed and flattened on OT 1 to 7 before attempting this rundown.
42.
The techniques involve simple spotting techniques as in R2 processes or straightwire
43.
references.

Regardless of the debate, North American games now have the chance to play Ragnarok Online with all kinds of ro zeny. During the free open Beta test period that you do not cost any ragnarok zeny, over ten thousand people logged on the game daily. Soon after this latest period, on a week notice, players were informed that the game was going pay iro zeny to play again. Each type of weapon, daggers and two handed swords, bows and so on which can gain from cheap zeny, have a unique animation for every class and sex. All ragnarok online zeny has the end effect of making every series of dungeons or outdoor maps look exactly alike.

The devaluation of the fiesta Gold grows faster than we think of it. I hope it is reflects to the management department about the question of the fiesta money.
It is caused by the continuous influx of fiesta online gold market currencies. On the other hand, buy fiesta Gold is one of these questions. The fiesta online money is one of the causes.
