Thank you Tony. Hopefully Red can pick up what you are putting down.

If by politicians you mean "independent non-partisan boards charged with districting that follows an objective compaction algorithm or similar, " then I agree.   If you mean, however, a group of partisan legislators, then no.   That's how states got districts like the one called Goofy Kicking Donald and other grotesqueries.
Your post was proven a lie by last week’s democratic takeover of the House in districts largely drawn by GOP Legislatures after the 2010 Census.

That would be true if republicans had more to offer voters than whatever got stuck to the bottom of their clown shoes.

Even the obscene amount of rigging the GOP put into preserving seats couldn’t stand up to the gravity of negligible accomplishments combined with the non stop disingenuous nastiness coming out of the party’s leadership. One can no longer tell whether the noxious flow is coming out of a republican ass or a republican face. There is no longer a discernible difference.

I hear people are going to be withholding state taxes in Georgia until they dump Kemp and get a legitimately elected government.

Folks should do the same in Florida till they jettison DeSantos.

If republicans put half as much energy into making policy as they do into stealing power they’d make terrible policy which would only hurt their chances. Republicans are terrible people who make the worst possible government officials.

Broward County's recount is being ignored by the state of Florida, which says it was two minutes late.
Next to the term Election Fraud in the dictionary is a map of Broward County.

And a picture of Jeb blowing George Jr.

2 years ago I was inclined to dismiss the dementia theory.   Now,  reconsidering.  Trump's Halloween theory of voting reminds me of paranoid stories I would hear when I worked as a counselor, mainly from people with either TBI or neurological issues arising from drug use,  strokes,  or general cognitive deficits from aging.   Am really starting to wonder if we're seeing something similar to the last couple years of Reagan's presidency when his staff had to start covering for him as his Alzheimer's first started to manifest.   

It’s the drugs. My cousin used to deliver to his “parties”.

No boomer should be allowed any role in government hence forth. The saddest generation’s downward slide is yielding seriously diminishing returns.

Its not my suggestion, you donk.

It was by far your best post since you created your account.

You have to get to work on those GOP Senators so that when they see hard evidence they vote to convict. I’m confident that you with your new good sense will find a way.

Democrats will also use their majority in the House to conduct Constitutionally mandated oversight of the Executive, to which FOX News will yell "Presidential harassment" and you and Mitch McConnell will say that Democrats are putting partisan politics over the country.


You prove my point.  You and McConnell will extremize the oppositions position so you can denounce the opposition as partisan and extreme.

Seeking oversight of the Executive is not an extreme position.  Its their job.  Advocating for zero oversight when the “president” has fully maintained financial ties to a global business in an arrangement that is ripe for quid pro quo corruption is the extreme position.

Kiid’s suggestion has merit in that the man is a dangerous criminal.

Republicans do dirt and evil in bad conscience and constantly project their guilt. It’s both how they live with themselves and even sometimes win.

Investigate him down to 25% popularity, and republicans will be leading his impeachment. There is no love or loyalty on that side, only fear and vengeance. That’s why they did nothing constructive in two solid years of control.

Wage growth adjusted for inflation remain negative under trump thanks to the tax scam leading to the electoral shellacking. The greedy groper’s popularity has fallen by 6% since the election. Republicans are diving and tanking right along with their figurehead.

With each close district and race called, the wave is looking bigger and bluer.

CA 45 is going Democratic as well.

Soon Steve King is going to have to go all the way to the White House to find another white nationalist to talk to.

John Yoo of all people. If this plays out by law, trump will likely rupture something in the ensuing tantrum.

Larry Hogan, having just rubbed elbows with his entire state appears to be planning to survive in the post-trump landscape.

I kinda have him in the gleague. There is a tightrope a good pg has to work out of tiptoeing the line of both making his teammates shine while asserting control of them and the game. The process of getting this is often hit or miss for young PGs. Rather than accumulate chemistry misses figuring it out at the highest level with and against more mature teams, do it where he faces less pressure and where guys will accept more leadership from a young unorthodox player.

By the way, Kornet is absolutely killing it in the GLeague. 18/9/4 with 3 blocks on 58% shooting and 50% on 7 threes a game. He might be how we get away from Kanter in a little bit.

I agree with you that Frank should've played more at the PG last year.  I like Frank a lot but he might be a bench guy if Trier takes his job.  They double-teamed Trier in his first start.  And that was when THjr was injured.  I want to see a lineup of:


For five games or so....

That would be an interesting look. Mudiay, Burke, Dotson, Mario, and Kant would be the bench squad. One more functional front court defender would really help.

You are radicalizing. You don’t know what wolves your words reach. Under your own terms you’d be out.

Are you trying to relocate yourself to sunny Nauru?
