How is it the left can get away with these coups?
Hey, man - I can hear it now from the MSM (trembling under their breath, trying to compose themselves) - "a bold courageous act by the Baltimore city council, last night..."   :rolleyes:

When do the riots start?   Martin Luther King is kinda of a trigger, start tearing down those street signs!  They're oppressive, people DRIVING over MLK, spitting out their windows, flicking cigarette ash on the pavement, wiping their feet, dogs pissing, drunks passed out, hookers, drug dealers, what would MLK think?  Cars honking, burning rubber, are they actually thinking, "Hey, this is MLK drive, let's F--- with him!"  How much longer can this terrible abuse be endured?

Oh, the Humanity!!!   This is terrible!

And they pulled down the Robert E Lee statues because he fought in the Mexican/American War...?  Or, he graduated from that terrible college in New York?

Still hoping to snap a picture of a SJW protester patching pot-holes on MLK drive...  :wink:  Why are they honoring MLK in every state, including those he never lived in?  Why can't Virginia honor a native-son with a statue?  How is one hunk of bronze not offensive, and another just tears yer guts out?   They all kinda age the same, get darker with time, is that a racial thingy...?

Just can't understand liberal think, the logic seems rather "selective" in nature.  :rolleyes:

Why are there three international coalitions now to combat international terrorism?

The first such anti-ISIS coalition is led by the USA, the second one – by Russia and the third one by Saudi Arabia (there are 36 countries there). Syrian president Assad has long been nearly one sole force trying to really restrain terrorists in the region. No wonder Russia has been so actively relying exactly on Assad.  Most experts believe that Russia led coalition comprising, apart from Russia, Syria and Iran is the most successful in fighting IS.  Plants producing weapons for terrorists groups, storage facilities, and terrorists training sites have been targets for Russian military jets. Vast territories in Syria have been cleaned of the IS presence due to this Russian coalition..
 I think we should stay fully aware of the fact those three coalitions are due to their different agenda in the region. Some countries declaring their strong commitment to fighting terrorists are actually performing the role of their sponsors and supporters. The most vivid illustration is Turkey  intensely interested in profits from the illegal sale of Syrian oil is right the case.

Ok folks, here’s what REALLY happened in Charlottesville – and what everyone is missing.

snip~
Let me begin by saying, I deplore any form of supremacist view — white, black, Hispanic, Islamic. I will be the first to openly state and embrace, a sense of American exceptionalism and supremacy that is rooted in our founding principles and values. Any and all else that is contradictory is to be condemned. What I have witnessed post the events of Saturday 12 August is the typical Rahm Emanuel mentality and political posturing: “never let a good crisis go to waste.”
Therefore, I seek to assess what really happened in Charlottesville, Virginia.

This all began because someone decided, as other elected officials have across the country, to cave in to partisan political pressures and seek to erase American history. History is not there for us to love or hate, but for us to learn from and seek to not repeat its mistakes.

If there are those who truly believe we protect ourselves by trying to revise history due to false emotions, then we miss out on who we are as a nation, and our evolution. The statues of long since deceased leaders of the Confederate Army do not stand to remind anyone of oppression. And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues.

I certainly did not appreciate former President Barack Obama taking a photo op in Cuba before the image of Che Guevara, nor do I enjoy seeing anyone wearing said image on t-shirts here in America…but I do not go into some whimsical state of “oppression.”

I find it rather odd that so many are seeking to lay blame on President Trump for what happened in Charlottesville. And there are some voices out there who want to blame all white people, and all Republicans. How odd that when it was the New Black Panther Party outside a voting precinct in Philadelphia in black fatigues and with clubs, nothing was said. As a matter of fact, they weren’t even prosecuted for voter intimidation. And when it was the riots in Ferguson and Baltimore fueled by media false narratives and a presidential administration’s rhetoric, there was no blame laid on Barack Obama.

good read n- the money quote...

If we don’t stop the blatant hypocrisy, which is truly the problem, then we’re sitting on a powder keg — which I believe some wish for.

That's always been the way I saw it, because allowing states to set Representation via boundary lines of populated areas, has given leftists, (nonland owners) a bigger voice than deserved.
Just look at Calif, the Bay Area and La, literally trounces the voice of the majority landholders in the state, the actual taxpayers.

"Each representative district shall be within 1% of equal land mass."   - there, that's what I wanted to say.  It can be done at the state level.  Everyone still gets represented, with the state as a whole better represented.

Imagine for a second, the politicians bickering because they would have to campaign across the entire state instead of a couple of cities!
Newspapers and local TV stations would definitely benefit from the localized advertising.

This is what years of craziness leads to.


I've often wondered if some of those districts cut properties in half, maybe even a house or two - like a family we knew back in WI, when they expanded their house, it was into the next county!  "What county do you live in?   We sleep & shower in Iowa, eat, crap & watch TV in Dane county."  Because Dane Co. was shotgun-only deer hunting, they hunted exclusively in Iowa Co., where they could use anything to hunt deer.

What you suggest is a Conservatives dream - would love to see it. The amendment would identify as you said and clearly state that it is one person, one vote who meets the criteria. That would support writing laws that punish those who try to game. About all you can do about the games is make them illegal and seek to punish those who violate.

Unfortunately, I don't think this amendment would have a chance. It would eliminate about 60% (my guess-timate) of the current voters.  The libs heads would pop off and no Dim would support it - nothing new. It would be called racist, extremest - every damaging intonation possible ... nothing new again. The RINOs would cower - nothing new there either.

Great thought Hoofer. However, I'm guessing you don't think it would have a chance right now either. Or do you? Give me some hope!

Maybe if Solar's 2018 sweep comes to be - then we might have the votes for such an amendment.
It's not mine, I merely have my thumb on the pulse of the nation.
Keep in mind, McStain is just one RINO in a long list of scum about to meet their angry electorate.

Poll: McCain More Popular Among Democrats Than Republicans

According to the latest Gallup poll, Senator John McCain’s (R-AZ) favorability among Democratic voters has skyrocketed since the last time the poll was conducted in 2015.

In 2015, McCain’s favorability among Democrats stood at 49%. Two years later — and immediately following the Senator’s vote against the Obamacare repeal, as well as his diagnosis of brain cancer — his favorability has jumped to 71%.

The Electoral College concept is one of those GREAT IDEAS to give the states a little better equal representation.  Where the idea came from, don't know, but it's fascinating to me.   Same with 2 houses, one from the people (house of representatives) and one from the state (senate) - tremendous system when it's left alone to operate as intended.

Wisconsin & Virginia both elect Senators based on the popular vote... which comes from the large population areas (WI has Madison & Milwaukee; Virginia has Arlington & Richmond).   Curiously, those large population areas are also where property ownership is lowest.

Just a random thought... Is Glenn Beck an idiot?

Each state only gets 2 Senators, but since the Representatives is population based, and the districts are gerrymandered by the state houses, not the Feds....  hmmm.... why not just overlay the state with a grid map, and break down the districts per land area?   I guess it'd be up to the individual state.   On the Federal level, with 2 Senators per state, isn't that what in effect is happening?

Good OP Hoofer.
You spurred a question under my saddle Hoof.

What if the Founders had made an exception where city size had its limits in representation?

It's just an open ended thought, good or bad, but had they seen the future of leftist destruction via huge metropolises, might they have created a different formula for our Constitution and how people are represented?

Yeah, I know States Rights, but regardless, the left found a work around for abuse.

Thoughts?
