    ..from voting against the medieval atrocity that is "Personhood."

    You wouldn't think it, but there is a surprising strong anti-Personhood sentiment in this state.

    The vote on Personhood will be very close.

    When Fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in excess body fat and carrying a misspelled sign.

      Since many of the jobs that I'm qualified for are becoming contract positions..... If I were asked to work in Mississippi, my rate would skyrocket to $250 an hour, minimum.  If they cough at that number, I'll tell the exactly why - I could be putting my life in danger by going there.

      I wish I could've voted in my old zip code today.  I have a feeling, though, that my time to vote against it here in Kentucky will come sooner rather than later.

        If 26 passes.... for Mississippi to think that it can still secure outside investors, businesses, etc., and be a 'leader' in bringing in industry and investment with medieval laws like this on the books?  It's LAUGHABLE.  Ridiculous.
