    Good idea to wait. Almost certain they full of coronavirus.

    “Now it needs to be disbanded and thrown by the wayside.”

    And replaced by what? All proposals I’ve seen are at leas

    That last paragraph should read: “All proposals I’ve seen are at least as flawed.”

    (When I posted it, the whole of it was displayed. Only later did it get truncated. Weird!)

    Hey, Henry, when was the last time you — or anyone — saw Governor Whitmer in a bar, much less cadging drinks?

  4. about 14 hours ago on Henry Payne

    “So long as it isn’t him getting sick and dying, Mr. Payne does not care.”

    And when — not “if”, if he practices what he “preaches” — it is Payne, he’ll use his dying breath to try to blame it on “the Democrats”.

    “If you like laws and sausages, you should never watch either be made.”

    Both are generally unpleasant after they’re “passed”, as well.

    “I much prefer insects that can fly because their first survival instinct is to get away from you, not hide in your clothing or bite you.”

    How often have you experienced spiders biting you, or even hiding in your clothing?

    In my case, it’s never. Certain insects, on the other hand…."

    “The Electoral College was put into place in order to keep Slavery.”

    Nope. Slavery wasn’t even an issue, not until much later. It was simply accepted by all concerned. There were other reasons — more significant at the time — for the Electoral College and it’s structure. Here are three:

    1) The new nation was the “United States”, not the “united people”. (The radical concept was in basing any influence on the number of people and not only every “state” having the same voting power.)

    2) With the fastest communication being via rider on horseback, it was not only impossible, but inconceivable that the votes of individual persons could be tallied at one time in a central location. (Note: Even the adding of numbers was time consuming, since it had to be done “by hand”, with pen and paper.)

    3) And due to the sparsity (not just low speed) of long-distance communication, local voters often had little or no idea who the presidential candidates were, much less what they stood for. So instead of voting for individual candidates, they voted for “electors”, who they believed would vote for the presidential candidate who would best represent their local/regional desires. (Note that the Electoral College only elects the President and Vice President, not the more local Senators and Representatives.)

    I admit that all of these reasons have lost their validity. But what principles should take their place? Just as there were cultural differences among the original states, there are also significant cultural differences among large segments of today’s population. Should we abandon the concept that there should be some balance among them and not just dominance by a group that gets a majority of at least one vote in only one election, where even uniformity of who gets to vote and how votes are counted doesn’t exist?

    “When are we going to become a nation instead of states competing against each other?”

    Well, we were founded as “The United States”, but too many individuals (I won’t say “states”, because there are dissenting individuals in those states) are now trying to remove that word “United”.

    How about the two “guys” acting out various versions of a response to the girl calling 911 to complain of domestic violence.

    Will anybody get shot? Maybe even her?

    “To be fair, children under 8 are not required to wear masks, at least in Europe.”

    Where in Europe? Europe — even the EU — is not a single unit under a single set of rules.

    Regulations are much different — and less restrictive — in Denmark than in Spain, and I understand that in Spain the restrictions can vary according to where you live.

    But then, the total number of reported covid-19 deaths in Denmark is 606, while in Spain it’s 28,385.
