    It has nothing to do with grammar. It is simply that Democrat used as an adjective is common among tho more extreme right wing sorts and almost never by Democrats which you imply you are.

    And that is exactly why he is pessimistic.

    We have watched all 23 or 24 seasons of Midsomer Murders. We had to use two different streaming services to get them all. You can try, in no particular order, NetFlix, Acorn, or BritBox. That last one is where we found the last few seasons.

    Not a Brit by my wife and I both loved Sykes. His passing was very sad on the show.

    You are making a big assumption here, that Trump thinks about his actions before, during, or after.

    Trump likes the uneducated. They can be convinced to vote against their own best interests. Again and again it seems. Wish I could figure out how that works.

    Considering the FBI already has his phone line tapped, his paranoia may not be totally misplaced.

    Just not long enough.

    I think you meant descendents but decedents implies he killed them so maybe you were right in the first place.

    It is unfortunate that so many states look to Texas to lead on what textbooks to use. Especially history textbooks where it is always America first, last, and always. The history books tout all the great things we have done while downplaying or ignoring the many ugly stains in our history, including slavery and rampant racism. And they do their very best to use the Bible as the basis for their science texts.

    Their method of adopting textbooks is also bad. There is a committee of teachers from around the state selected to advise on the textbooks being adopted in any year. They do not have to teaching the topic or level of textbook being considered. My ex-Father-in-law is a textbook publisher. His business was a small, basically two man operation (not counting authors, proofreaders, etc.) and he did okay until the New York publishers figured out how many textbooks get sold in Texas. Their salesmen came in wining and dining these (many small-town) teachers in ways he could not afford. As a result, inferior textbooks were recommended. He had a Texas history book one year written by a professor of Texas history with exercises prepared by someone who had taught Texas history for over 20 years. The New York text was found to have over 100 factual errors but it was adopted anyway. And greed sees to it that those New York publishers will make the changes needed to keep the ultra-right wing crowd happy. I feel sorry for kids graduating from a Texas high school and going out of state for university. I suspect discovering their level of ignorance will be a shock.
