This is what political correctness looks like. Are we expected now to carry around consent forms so we can document that we did receive consent for every interaction, like a college student in California?

Is there a place where conservatives are welcome in SF? I'm beginning to wonder whether #Penguicon is it.

The parliamentarian in me got curious about the rules surrounding the Hugo. They're all here, at the World Science Fiction Society rules page.

I have to say that they're very well written and clear, spelled out in sufficient detail, and understandable enough to gladden the heart of any parliamentarian.

And I got a good chuckle out of Standing Rule 7.7, on the Nitpicking and Flyspecking Committee...

...and reviewing the list of continuing resolutions, I was more than a little surprised to see +Seth Breidbart listed!

As well as this gem from the 2003 Business Meeting: "The Chair ruled that a motion to refer a report to the 1939 Worldcon Business Meeting was frivolous and dilatory as creating indefinite time loops is a bad idea." Damn, wish I'd come up with that one.
Rules of the World Science Fiction Society. The World Science Fiction Society (WSFS) is governed by its Constitution and Standing Rules to which links are given below. These are accurate as of the end of the 2014 Worldcon. CONSTITUTION of the World Science Fiction Society (PDF) August 2014 ...

Heh...there's a standing rule on when the motion to adjourn (specifically, the motion to adjourn sine die, ending the conduct of all business at the con) is in order. See Standing Rule 5.7.

Here's how the Left treats those who dare fight them.

And the supposition that they're "protected" is BS.  Under the Fourteenth Amendment the States actually are under obligations.  John Doe investigations are not legal under the Constitution. (Hint: If the Feds can't do it, neither can the States under the Fourteenth...)

Nobody has resources that has Standing or it'd stop damned quick.

What about openly gay people who own guns?
A Michigan car repair shop owner says openly gay people are not welcome at his business. And gun owners are.

Once again, the Left tries to have it both ways: Food stamps don't reduce poverty...except when they do.

Laws are for the little people.
Hillary Clinton's motorcade raced from Keene to Claremont to Concord, obliterating speed limits throughout the Granite State as she kept a tight schedule of off-the-books events on Monday.

Where's the media? They'll never report this story, since it destroys their narrative about how Dick Cheney's evil minions destroyed the  career and endangered the life of Valerie Plame.
In “The Story: A Reporter’s Journey,” which hit book store shelves Tuesday, April 7, former New York Times reporter Judith Miller revealed in the final chapter that she now believes...

A simple, concise explanation of the assumptions underlying CAGW theory and why they're wrong.
For years, various international organizations have floated schemes to reduce the world's production of CO2 in order, supposedly, to prevent or reverse global warming. Such efforts have consistentl...

Epic.  Not that any of the AGW 'tards will believe it.  It goes counter to The Narrative...so it doesn't exist and is nothing but a lie.

The people reporting on the candidates have almost nothing in common with the people who will select the Republican nominee.

But then, this is hardly a surprise.

A very nice, well-kept indoor pistol range. The people are knowledgeable, the range clean and safe. Definitely worth the trip.
