    Yeah, I see nothing wrong with this. What if I'm raised or live in a district for years and know the problems that they face very well and have ideas on how to fix them efficiently and equitably for that populous, but am not part of another district because lines were drawn a block away? You're telling me that I'm disqualified from helping my neighbors now? Yeah... I don't buy that.

    At the end of the day, it's the job of responsible voters to know their representation. I don't think that you have to live in someone's neighborhood to find solutions to their problems. This also means that, in many cases, we are forcing the blind to lead the blind. If you're in a poor and undereducated district, you're likely stuck with poor and undereducated representation.

    Well that's just bull shit. This is why I generally ask for sources on things, and why disagreements tend to dissipate shortly thereafter.

    This is the kind of shit you hear on conservative talk radio that's passed off as fact without source or confirmation, and can be passed off as an "opinion piece." It's a perfect example of why the right is trying so hard to discredit journalists and sourced materials.

    It is amazing how the left thinks they are on the right side of every issue and ditto for the right...……

    How about actually finding some common ground and getting something, anything accomplished...…….

    I don't even recognize the democratic party anymore...……..

    Anyone been following the soccer team trapped in the cave.

    Elon musk just sent a team to go help. Pretty crazy. Also baffling why a coach would take a team on 12 year olds 2.5 miles into a cave that they had to swim through passages to get to

    Really hard to piece together conservatives' obsession with "law and order," when the president keeps pardoning known criminals. The Dinesh D'Souza pardon comes to mind, as he pled guilty to all charges brought against him only to be pardoned.

    These aren't mistakes in the justice system. These are pardons of people who knowingly broke the law. In some cases such as Joe Arpaio, he even went directly against court orders to break said laws.

    But, as Tex might say, I might just be "drinking the cool aid." Who has time to actually hold people accountable for their words or expect their philosophies to endure from sentence to the next?

    It's becoming clear what's happening here. Trump is conditioning the GOP base to accept, and even support, his unbridled pardon power. There's a pardon for every wing of his support base:
    Racists get Joe Arpaio, Neocons get Scooter Libby, Libertarians get the Oregon ranchers and the "troll the libs" group get Dinesh D-Souza.

    Now when he starts to pardon friends and family, the GOP members of Congress will have zero pressure from their voting base to do or even say anything about it.

    Every single President has used the pardon authority...…….

    Trump did pardon Jack Johnson...……..Offense: Violation of the White Slave Traffic Act

    He has pardoned 7 individuals to this point...…….

    These type of actions are always controversial depending on an individual's perspective...…..

    The Democrats have just introduced their first bill to abolish ICE...….They just sealed their November blue wave loss and a Trump 2020 win...……..This country would benefit with a legitimate democratic challenger...………...we need strong leadership and integrity...…...Just my opinion...……..
