My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
NPR has jumped into the election prediction game. This time with a Twist. It’s Interactive. Also takes into consideration demographic changes that have occurred since the last election. It will be a good place to check to see how Hillary is doing in the Electoral College.
The Optics of it all. This is pure genius on the part of the Democrats who started the sit-in. And what’s most ironic is that they’re holding the house hostage that wants to vote on a bill that will remove fiduciary responsibility from people that handle your money. The only people in the world that want this bill to go through are the banks. To make it simple this law was passed under President Obama’s administration and it says that if you handle someone’s money you must handle it responsibly. The banks hate this because acting responsibly is not in their nature. So now the eyes of the nation are looking at a cell phone transmission from the floor of the house and in half an hour speaker Ryan will call the house to order to vote on a bill that only the banks want. This is going to set them up for 30 second commercials over and over again between now and November. This is a nightmare for Paul Ryan. And nobody deserves nightmares more than Paul Ryan. This is why the Republicans no longer call the Democratic Party by its name and only say the Democrat Party. Because this is democracy at work at its finest.
