The “Democrats” (democratic in name only) created “Super Delegates” inside their party hierarchy.
They serve to get the right candidate that the party leadership wants in office, not the candidate that most of the people in the party want to see in office.
Just remember that in the 2016 elections, Senator Sanders was favored by the party faithful while the gerontocracy in the party leadership used the Super Delegates to select Secretary Clinton, one of their own, for the party nomination.
That set in motion the election of 2016 and helped to make Mr. Trump the current president.
Many of the party’s voters in November wound up casting their votes for either the third-party candidates or wrote in their candidate while many of the independent voters out there wound up casting their lot with Mr. Trump, because he wasn’t Secretary Clinton.
The sad part is that we may see history repeat itself, again, as the party gerontocracy may want the rest of the party to back their candidate for the nomination, which appears to be Vice-President Biden, in opposition to what the majority the party faithful want to support, which could be Senator Sanders, again.
Washington, DC, the place where thousands of indecisions are made daily.
Actually, not filing your tax returns is a felony.
I don’t think I want to eat something that was cooked with a bug zapper…all those fried bug guts might get into the food.
Unfortunately, I can’t throw out one of these orange thingies, because I’m afraid what a new president would do given that it would be Pence.
At least he is not Judge Persky, who after being recalled over the Brock Turner decision, just got fired from his job teaching Women’s Tennis at a South Bay High School.
The reason why Drumpf became Trump may be because of World War I, when many German-American families changed their names to become more Anglo-Saxon-sounding.
Many folks that have “Smith” as a last name probably had families that started out as “Schmidt” while some families that started out as “Gross” became “Large”.
It’s not going to matter what weapons are banned, there will always be a way to procure them, and some folks out there may even manufacture them or modify a legal weapon so that it can behave like an assault weapon.
The real problem in our society lies in the fact that there are people out there that feel the need to have a high-powered military-style firearm for starters, be it any perceived fear from a governmental authority that has over-reached the laws used to create it or any perceived fear from their neighbors or some distant threat like a foreign power or even a drug cartel.
Perhaps if the perceived need for the weapon was gone, it would go far in diminishing the number of these weapons out there.
Yesterday is history and those of us on this side of the Webster-Ashburton Treaty Line have pretty much moved on with our lives and on to the next crisis, like the suicide of Jeffrey Epstein or some other goofy situation like what the former Veep said about poor kids and white kids or the current president praising North Korea, again.
