Funny, I've found that dating liberals has only made me more conservative.

He was always conservative, but now he seems to be parroting whatever comes across his gaze, which I guess is par for the course among some avid, opinionated Facebook posters. I dunno. I don't have a problem with conservatives in general in regards to dating (unless they are really politically-inclined, because I am too and it probably wouldn't work in the end), but Trump is a different deal to me. You don't have to be a bigot or a pervert to support him, but by doing so you are implicitly stating it's not a deal breaker to be a bigot or sexual predator. From my perspective I want nothing to do with that.


You see I couldn't have that sort of attitude. I get why some folks do, but it is near impossible for me to do so. I still want to be able to talk to my own mother Tongue

CA CD-34: Ex-Assembly Speaker John Perez (D), early frontrunner in upcoming special election, quits race today after suffering heart attack.

Shocked Sad I hope he's OK.

Since we have one for Congress, I'd think we should get a bit more ambitious.

President? Me? We're all going to hell, LOL....j/k!! Wink

But seriously....my top three priorities would be repealing ObamaCare, ending some of the burdensome (and frankly, ridiculous) regulations on business, and repairing our relationships with our European allies.  Smiley

How ingrained is anti-Irish bigotry in our society? What elements of it can we still see today?

We aren't talking about today here. This is the history board.
I should probably rephrase it a bit, what I'm interested in is when anti-Irish bigotry stopped being a major factor in politics.

Oh. Sorry. I misinterpreted it.
Nah, I didn't make my initial question clear enough to start with.

So... is there any Democrat in ND who could make a special election against Cramer competitive?
Many Democrats who represented R-leaning districts in the legislature were defeated. Though I think a handful survived. Maybe one of those? Or Earl Pomeroy?

Hmm, Pomeroy (who is a lobbyist today) would probably lose. Not sure about Joel Heitkamp. Either way, the GOP can't take a special election in a state like North Dakota for granted. If they can't win this seat back in 2017 or 2018, they're probably going to lose it for decades to come. Think of what happened in Maine in 1996.

Eh, if Kaine loses, Republicans will pick up more than 10 seats in 2018. Not going to happen. Fool's gold IMO.
So two of Klobuchar, Nelson, and Baldwin are more likely to lose than Kaine?

I'd say Nelson and Baldwin are. Definitely not Klobuchar though.

Nelson and Baldwin are more likely to lose than Kaine. Klobuchar has her seat locked down if she still wants it, but things could get interesting if she retires.

I'm not so sure if this is the right place to put this but here I go...

I found this article from Vox just a few minutes ago and came across it. D.C. seems to be doing very well lately after years of population decline. At the 2010 Census, the population was 601,723. The 2015 estimate puts the city at 672,228 growing by 11.7% (big league growth) thanks to an increase of a reversing trend of White Flight from the city. Now, many well-educated people and professionals are prospering in Washington (Though there is still some blight unfortunately).

But what about Midwestern cities like Cleveland and Detroit that are still in need of attention?

What are your opinions on bringing these type of jobs to this region?
