A difficult and controversial issue, to be sure.

Keeping trash bags away from bears deprives them of delicious human food. But on the other hand, it puts them into conflict with humans.

It just seems like no matter what we do, we can't make the bears and the people happy. Not the bears have much to be happy about.

Are you aware that bears still cannot purchase property in the United States of America? If I become your president, I will do everything I can to change that.

Not fascist, I just think that only the government and police agencies can be trusted with the responsibility of handling bear arms. If we ban them from ordinary people, the violent crime rate and bear maulings will obviously drop to zero!

For example, just look at most of Europe and Asia. They all have bans on bear arms, and as a result their violent crime rates/bear maulings are next to nonexistent. And of course, I absolutely trust all of their governments to keep the well being of their people in heart at all times.

Where do you stand on the bees/honey issue?
Bees all over the world are disappearing. And something needs to be done about this before all the bees and honey in the world disappear. If I become president, I'll take half the defense budget and put it towards the conservation of bees!

Where do you stand on the right to Bear Arms? Do you believe humans have a right to possess bear arms of their own?
Now, obviously, we don't want to deprive good, hard-working bears of their own arms. But I believe possessing bear arms would be a fulfilling and enriching experience for many people. So I have already begun working on plans for an organization dedicated solely to producing prosthetic bear arms for any who may require them.

I personally believe that bear arms are too dangerous a weapon for anyone to be trusted with, including bears themselves. I would support a federal ban on all posession, calling for immediate confiscation of all bear arms and their subsequent destruction by burning.
This is a controversial issue. But it's also not as big a problem as people think.

The statistics show that doctors kill more people than bear arms do every year. Should we ban doctors?

The fact that bear arms might kill some people every once in a while is not a reason to deprive bears of their arms.

Obviously, we'll be working closely with Veterinarians and experts in bear physiology, as they will already have the necessary experience to handle things. So we'll kick some money their way, or something.

Well, as it stands ATM, the Democrats are ahead 196-191 over the Republicans on USA Today's website. The Democrat Party has obtained a lot of votes in California, Illinois and New York with 55, 20 and 29, respectively; the Republican party has a good chunk of votes from Texas and Georgia with 38 and 16, respectively.

There's a dead heat (Meaning it's close) in Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Iowa, Wisconsin and Florida amongst others. The web site has a nifty vote tracker that lets you play out the scenario as you like and you can check how it plays out by determining which states shall provide the jump for either one of the parties.

Messing around on that I managed to get Obama 269, Romney 269, Unannounced 0.

Nah, we're done here. Big M needs FL, OH, VA, NC, and one of NV/IA. Anyone who sees that flying, tell me.
Doesn't look like he's going to get Florida without a hell of a fight. I can see him getting NC though.

Romney total:
269

The Electoral College is weird like that. It comes down to the House of Representatives and the Senate putting in votes. So actually, Romney would win if neither somehow gets over 270, if I remember my Government classes right.

OH, and other interesting facts about the Electoral College:
You can win without a popular majority, though this hasn't happened very often.
It is possible to win the majority of states, but still lose.

Florida remains a dead heat. Some 62% of the vote has been counted and Romney maintains a wafer-thin lead on 49.6%, with Obama at 49.5%. This could be heading for recount territory, automatically triggered if the race is decided by a margin of one half of 1%.

New Jersey needs more love.

For all the TV sitcoms that are set in New York tells me to hate New Jersey (as well as the Jersey Shore) for some reason I can't help but believe that it actually a really pleasant place to live in.

Then again, I live in Illinois where we believe it odd to have a government that isn't corrupt and trying to screw us over.

Todd Akin lost his race. Excellent, the fewer people who can say 'legitimate rape' with a straight face who have a say, the better.

- - - Updated - - -

New Mexico declared (Democrats).

Wisconsin declared Democrat.

The poor Republican on BBC News when he said losing Wisconsin was a disappointment: "Have you had anything which isn't a disappointment yet?"

"No."

Apparently, they also elected a lesbian as the Wisconsin senator. Historic.

BBC guy correcting one of their correspondents mixing up Akin and Mourdock's statements: "We have to deal with more than one of these lunatics!"

BBC still not quite managing to keep their impartiality on. Main pundit talking about Akin and Mourdock calls their comments 'outrageous' and says 'they deserved to go'. Not that he's at all wrong ...

Nah. It was pointed out that Obama had won by 11pm last time and (discounting all the premature concessions) was confirmed to have won after the Iowa/Ohio declarations at ~11:45 this time around. He didn't crush it, but he kept reasonably on target.
