I'll dip into a non-fiction from time to time, but usually it's fiction.

I'm sorely tempted to start the Discworld series again, now that it's... um... complete.  Sad

with Democrats needing to commit a lot of gerrymandering in order to offset the natural conservative advantage in geographic sorting.

Haha, clever.  The Democrats need to gerrymander in order to offset the natural conservative advantage.  Got it.

The GOP has 54 Senators and 31 governors. Id call that an advantage that cannot be gerrymandered

We all know the Senate is disproportionately favorable to the GOP, but we're talking about the House.

I feel sorry for political journalists for having the job to make long-foregone conclusions still seem like a nailbiter for several months.  I'd just give up and go full clickbait.

The Strip is basically adjacent to McCarran, and of course is horrendous.  Green Valley is decent.

By October it'll already be a foregone conclusion; only two or three GOP hacks will still be trying to unskew the polls to claim that it could either way, but likely for the Republican.  Everybody else will already be looking ahead to 2020.

I mean, I've never been on a cruise, but it sounds like you just lounge around and eat food and drink alcohol for like a week while stopping in tropical ports every now and then to walk around? That sounds fun to me? Not sure why people are so against it.

Sounds boring as f[inks].

...you walk around and travel to play a game of tag for fun



(BRTD added a self-burn by responding that it's not like tag because sometimes it feels like he's in a Bourne movie.)

I've heard they are shooting a new episode in my old college town of Alva, Oklahoma.  I'm not quite sure why, but I think it's an interesting and a good choice.

The reason is simple; unlike other period TV shows that have to dress the scenery and the extras to fit in with the era, such effort is unnecessary in Oklahoma.

Alabama and Tennessee aren't surprising.  If anything I'm surprised it isn't the case for more Southern states.

I know I would self-deport from Arizona at this rate.

That's the general idea, yes.

Is it really all that shocking? What else should people expect from Ramsay...

Or from the show in general?  A happy wedding?!

They've been whining bitterly ever since!  (Even having taken back Congress.)  The biggest mistake the Democrats made was trying to compromise with the Republicans on anything, especially when they had 60 Senate seats.  They could have achieved so much more in that short space of time if they had anticipated how unwilling the GOP was to accept its minority status.

And of course the Democrats have been trusted with entitlements, silly.  That's why we still have them.

I agree. Time to nationalize the healthcare industry, destroy all the health insurance companies, and institute a single payer system. I'm glad we can agree on something AggregateDemand.

Converting employer-directed tax-subsidized insurance into single-payer insurance does make the insurance problem go away. Furthermore, universal single-payer will probably never happen in the US because Democrats won't reform Medicare and Medicaid. Proof was provided between 2009-2010. 

Single payer was floated quite a few times during that time, as you know, but was quickly shot down because the Democrats were attempting to bring the Republicans on board the healthcare reform agenda (LOL).  We all remember how the bill kept getting watered down in an attempt to coax lonely Olympia Snowe to vote for it, and she still didn't!  Republicans will never abandon the insurance industry in favor of a simple system that makes sense to everybody.  That's not how capitalists make money, you see.
