Adams
Dominion
The Atlantic


Many of the states in the North Region are not near the Atlantic and are in the Midwest.

I hardly think Atlantic is appropriate.

I had considered putting the Iraq War under G W Bush as one of the options, but decided against it as I  believed the Iraq War would dominate the voting, and would not leave an accurate reading of how the other issues were viewed.

So what this doctor? is saying is that 63,000,000 Americans who supported Trump are idiots, insane, or otherwise mentally unbalanced.

Did his certification come out of a cracker jack box or what?

Which of these was the worst mistake made by a U.S. President?

Please vote and discuss should you wish.

You know, in all actuality, there are many people in possession of guns who should have them confiscated.
I never thought you'd express such an extreme viewpoint.  If you want unarmed police that badly, move to Europe.

I have to admit, that is a very smart and witty reply.

No, never.  I certainly hope not.

The WWE has as well had Linda McMahon, who is now designated as  the Administrator of the Small Business Administration in the Trump Administration, on the show several times.

She was made to beg like a dog in the middle of the ring for some reason or other, and she will now be heading a very important branch of government.

She is, of course, the wife of Vince McMahon.

So I guess the moral of the story is that you can act like a complete idiot in the WWE wrestling ring and still rise to the top of the U.S. government or a U.S. government agency.

If Hillary's potential voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin had been this motivated or this enthusiastic on election day, Hillary would be President today.

Is the arrival of the Trumps in DC, attractive, wealthy, intelligent, accomplished, the dawning of the new age of Camelot in America?

Please discuss.

I favor Franklin, as in Benjamin Franklin.

That is the name suggested during the Constitutional Convention.

Jefferson, as in Thomas Jefferson, was the name suggested for the south.  I spoke against using that name as Thomas Jefferson was a major slave holder.  I suggested Rayburn, as in Sam Rayburn, for the south.  That  got some support I believe.

The three suggested names from the convention all make sense.

Fremont, as in John C Fremont, was instrumental in opening up the west.

Franklin, of course Benjamin Franklin, a founding father, from the north, Pennsylvania.

Rayburn, Sam Rayburn, a great legislator from the south, Texas.

Franklin is actually a very good name for the north.

Shrieking, shrill feminists fear mongering.

Do they really think that mean mouthing the President of the United States is going to further their agenda?
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Sanders backers take over California Democratic Party on: January 20, 2017, 11:28:54 pm
Good.

Turn the whole Democratic Party over to the extreme leftist elements for all I care.

Makes it easier for Republicans to attract even more moderates.

Their loss.

But can some Democrat apologist tell me why Congressman Lewis said he never missed an inauguration before, when he did miss the inauguration of GW.

Today's the first time since 1970 Joe Biden is not holding a public office Sad

But technically

I don't want to nit-pick, but according to Wikipedia

Biden served on New Castle County Council 1970-1972.

Elected U.S. Senate 1972, was sworn into U.S. Senate Jan 3 1973, so there was a gap in between New Castle County Council and U.S. Senate where he held no public office.

Elected Vice President 2008, resigned from U.S. Senate Jan 15 2009, sworn in as Vice President Jan 20, 2009, so there was a 5 day gap where he did not hold any public office.

But like I say, I do not wish to nit-pick.

Section 1 ridiculous

Section 2 sensible

The Sour Grapes Democrats and the malcontents will skip the inauguration and launch their silly protests.

But the average American won't care, because the average American will be tuning into the inauguration, which will mark the first day of making America great again.
16  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Trump resigns. Pence becomes President. Who should Pence pick as the new VP? on: January 19, 2017, 05:16:00 pm
Nikki Haley would probably be a top pick. One of the outgoing governors (assuming this is around 2018) would be solid too - I'd support Kasich or Sandoval (doubt Pence would pick them though) or maybe Haslam.

Thank you for your input.  Good picks.
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Trump resigns. Pence becomes President. Who should Pence pick as the new VP? on: January 19, 2017, 05:15:07 pm
Susana Martinez would be a decent choice.


Thank you for your interesting input.  Good pick I believe.
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Trump resigns. Pence becomes President. Who should Pence pick as the new VP? on: January 19, 2017, 05:11:55 pm
Carson.

Thank you for your input.  Carson would be a bold pick.

Jeb? - no seriously, Ford picked Rockefeller...

For sure, I believe Jeb would be a credible pick.  Brings various factions of the party together.
20  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Election What-ifs? / Re: Trump resigns. Pence becomes President. Who should Pence pick as the new VP? on: January 19, 2017, 05:05:09 pm
Brian Sandoval, Ben Sasse, Nikki Haley, or maybe Scott Walker.

Pence/Walker would be a Midwestern duo.

Thank you for your interesting input.

Pence is seen as pretty far-right, so I think he needs a relative moderate to unite Republicans around him and attract independents. Brian Sandoval or, as Sunrise said, Susana Martinez would probably be decent choices. Perhaps Kelly Ayotte or, since it would be about a year or two from now, Chris Sununu (depending on his performance as governor). As a longshot possibility, if he remains as well-regarded as he is now, maybe Mad Dog Mattis?

Some interesting picks, as well as an accurate observation that perhaps Pence would do well to pick someone with a somewhat moderate approach.

America needs a strong, sensible, effective gun control policy.

I have a theory about the Patriot slogan

Liberty or Death

It occurs to me that many of these Yankee traitors are now dead.

Dude, you're like 8 years late to the joke.


But it bears retelling at the end of the Obama era.
