8. Too bad

you never saw the guys in the office where I used to work. Pathetic.

In their late 20s to mid 40s.

Didn't know how to operate a fucking postage machine.


Wanna make more fun of the 16 year old?

12. No big surprise there

Some individuals obviously have nothing better to do than make fun of kids who have done nothing to them.

15. If she has her way lots of things will be done to lots of people.

That's why power grubbing lefty props her up. She scolds the world to bend over for the tyrants, but then the tyrants hide behind her and squeak, "How dare you pick on that poor child!"

Go peddle your cult bullshit somewhere else.

20. And FYI

I didn't alert, in case anyone was wondering.

The post was stupid, but not stupid enough to alert on.

17. This was alerted on,

No violation, no hide.

No point in wasting one's time explaining "why" one voted this way.

Why are you hiding behind her? Fight your own battles, Nana.

24. You're "calling out"

con artists? No. You are mocking and attacking a teenaged girl who is passionate about a cause.

If you don't like, or agree with the issue, then fucking stay ON the issue and refrain from making it personal by "calling out" anybody.

25. Lots of kids are passionate about lots of things. They don't get to go to the UN.

Lefty only cares about this one because she feeds their quest for totalitarianism and they can hide behind her.

26. So she got to go to the UN

that's her fault?

And it justifies mocking and attacking her?

If she was out there spewing RW ideology, she would be Joan of Arc to you guys. Please. We're not as stupid as you hope we are.


I don't attack kids no matter what they're saying.

11. Not making fun of

But I am a parent and work daily in the community. A 16 year old kid has no business making choices that effect others because most of the time someone has to grab them by the throat quite regularly to keep them from fucking their own life up beyond repair.

I think the voting age should be raised to 25 because the part of your brain that makes rational decisions is not fully developed until that age.

13. Actually

I do agree with you on some level.

It scares the hell out of me that 16.5 year old kids can get their drivers license and be out there driving something that could be a deadly weapon.

6. I wonder how they are going to handle election days that have federal races

I guess they are going to have to have two ballots. One with the local races and one with the fed.

7. Some

sixteen year olds are quite mature for their age

And some 35 year olds are still walking around with garbage dumps in their heads. The show "Jackass" is a good example of people I wouldn't trust to vote for town dogcatcher.


So who knows...maybe the majority of 16 year olds in Brookline won't give a shit about politics and this will all just be a lot of hooha over nothing,

10. Brookline is a very affluent and mostly white community with a significant asian population (15%).

the people between 16 and 18 that would be affected by this are (obviously) the children of the people who already live there. If they want to let their kids vote on the rules of their local community, I don't have a problem with that, so long as they're ONLY allowed to vote on local issues. I don't think it's a good idea, but I don't have a problem with them doing it.

14. I don't think that applies to federal candidates!

They can lower the age to two for state and local candidates if they wish!

18. Since 16 years is still an easily manipulable age,

it's easy to see why Democrats and primitives would favor this.

21. Oh my....

only someone who has never had kids would believe something like that.


I've never ever met a 16 year old who could be manipulated into doing something s/he didn't wish to do.

22. Oh now, no reason to justify, as we already know what's going on here.

Just as Democrats and primitives are against voter identification because it makes election fraud harder to do, they want impressionable kids to have the vote because most of them, due to social pressure and the media, will vote Democrat and primitive.

Anything that ensures one man, one vote, and anything that ensures a mature, well-informed electorate, your side is against, for an obvious reason. You can't possibly deny it.
