poorer small-time farmers who had to leave because they lost their farms in the Dust Bowl had previously voted Democratic (or even Socialist).
[/quote]

Where did most of those farmers end up? Arizona and California? I wonder if they stayed dem or if they switched to the republicans in the postwar era.

it seemed that the state was only a pink or light red state before then and often elected democrats to congress, even in the 1920s. The state had a sort of maverick political persuasion as evidenced by George Norris and WJB. Also, it usually wasn't as republican as other parts of the midwest since it had a decently large sized "ethnic" population of Czechs and Germans.

From then on, it became a pretty hard core red state.

well its hard to know what to do. The first thing is to ban ex-cons from owning guns. But Holmes wasn't an ex-con so its hard to know what could have stopped this from happening.

I didn't save it, I merely remember you saying something to that effect and tried to retrieve it.

There is no such thing as blocks of wrecked abandoned housing, unlike in a lot of other low income areas in other locations.

You don't really have that anywhere in California. Maybe in some rural areas that I have never visited.

And I'll back up your comments on Santa Ana. I have been in that city many times and never had any issues or thought it was overly dumpy. Parts of Garden Grove and Anaheim look worse imho.

you wrote on 12/30/12 that "Yeah a movie actor probably wouldn't even live in Orange county let alone the dump known as Santa Ana. There are some high rise condos in south Santa Ana that would be cool to live in but they are filled more with yuppies working in Irvine. "

Carter's 1976 coalition didn't actually have much to do with the way any pre-1964 Democrat won the South.

really? I'm pretty sure he got at least 40% of the white vote in every southern state.

there aren't enough moonbats for them to win a primary. It is though the most NAM (Non-Asian Minority) part of Long Island so its possibly someone from Hempstead could win a dem primary.

yes, it was from a book called "The American Dilemma"
16  General Discussion / History / the future of America predicted in 1944? on: July 03, 2015, 02:17:08 am
I mean I'm skeptical of the idea of psychics but here is a text that is bone chillingly accurate by Gunnar Myrdal in 1944:

"From the point of view of social science, this means, among other things, that social engineering will increasingly be demanded. Many things that for a long period have been predominately a matter of individual adjustment will become more and more determined by political decision and public regulation. We are entering an era where fact-finding and scientific theories of causal relations will be seen as instrumental in planning controlled social change. The peace will bring nothing but problems, one mounting upon another, and consequently new urgent tasks for social engineering."

I think Gibson would do really against Cuomo. Idk if thats enough to win, though

May be. But Gibson, while generally very moderate by present day Republican standards, is pro-life. For NY candidate it's rather a minus...

correct me if i'm wrong but he voted against the 20 week ban in 2013. That has to count for something.

He seems to be the representative of the most conservative district of the south, right?

the south? no. Florida? yes. District is full of aging rambos.

It illustrates just why the party, and especially its Conservative wing began to look to the South and West. The only way the Party could get a majority was to win 2/3rds of the seats in the Northeast and that was unlikely with a Conservative GOP in a New Deal Era.

another classic SCNY post with the same hackery. Guy sounds like Jay Cost almost.
20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL-Sen: Murphy In on: June 21, 2015, 04:14:38 pm
interesting thing - if Murphy wins, he would be the youngest U.S. senator since Don Nickles in 1980.
21  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: How did California gain 7 electoral votes in the 1980's? on: June 17, 2015, 03:08:29 am
i honestly don't know. I think it may have had to do with silicon valley. Also, the cold war was on life support but still requiring extra manpower and the aerospace industry was doing pretty well. In the 90s with the end of the cold war, the aerospace industry atrophied and there were other factors in the early 90s that disturbed people (Rodney King, prop 187) and a lot of middle class (and oftentimes conservative) voters started moving out of state.
22  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / Re: what will the Southlake, TXs of the world look like in half a century? on: June 02, 2015, 03:22:30 pm
The growth in half a century will be much further out, since Tejas has more land than it knows what to do with. (CT is the size of one of their counties, so maybe I'm just jealous).

First Frisco will continue to become as big as Plano & Arlington (200,000-300,000), then its neighbor to the north, Prosper, will start to grow into a mega-suburb. 10 years later the cycle will continue with the next neighbor on the Tollway, Celina.

After that growth tsunami will reach Grayson County (unless this move back to the cities actually happens, I keep seeing articles about it but the population data shows little to no sign of it).

Other places that will be growing faster then include Wise & Parker Counties and the town of Forney.

The Tollway doesn't go that far, and that's what's restricting growth. Hwy 380 is still a bumpkin state highway with insufficient overpasses and way to much traffic. The Northwest side of the metroplex has the same problem. The funding deal for 114 fell through when Texas Motor Speedway was completed, which means Argyle, Justin, Northlake areas are still excluded from convenient DFW and Dallas access. They have to get through the mess in Roanoke.

Southlake will continue to develop, but stay mainly the same. I don't see it turning into an old money locale. It's perfect for DFW access, which means traveling executives, regional sales directors, public accounts, etc are happy to live there. Highland Park/University Park is the other option, but prices are prohibitive.

couldn't highway 289 theoretically become a tollway in the future?
23  General Politics / Political Geography & Demographics / what will the Southlake, TXs of the world look like in half a century? on: June 01, 2015, 11:42:24 pm
Somewhere like Southlake is what I would call "ground zero" for the new rich as opposed to the old rich of Park Avenue, Holmby Hills etc. But East Manhattan and West LA were once new neighborhoods and were once "noveau riche" so what will the trajectory look like - will Southlake join the pantheon of "old money stomping grounds" and the noveau riche of the future will live (at least in the DFW area) around Lake Roberts or what not?
