Of course not, because that would imply that both sides are bad, and we all know that only Democrats are Socialists.

So far, West Virginia’s abortion ballot initiative is looking like a nail-biter. CNN is showing that with about 67 percent of the vote in, votes in favor lead by about 8,000. The measure would prevent state Medicaid funding from being used for abortions and weaken abortion protections (which would be important if Roe v. Wade is ever overturned).

Well here’s why I think you shouldn’t be surprised. We went for Clinton by 10 points. We’ve been trending Democratic since Obama beat McCain. I believe Obama beat McCain here but Romney won. The thing is though. Frank Wolf won re-election for years because he was respected and seen as someone who got stuff done. Comstock got elected first in 2014 in a Republican year and as his protege. She sort of benefitted in 2016 since people really weren’t sure if her opponent lived in the district. Wexton had a lot of VA-10 bonafides. Her state senate district is just east of mine and I actually first met her at a Farmers Market when I was a volunteer for Perriello. She signed the petition even though she supported now Governor Northam since she’s a good sport. I’m not surprised Jen won but I was shocked that it was called so early.

The education divide persists. Democrats appear to be doing well in well-educated suburbs, which extends a trend we’ve seen of Democrats gaining ground with college-educated voters. In 2017, Pew Research Center reported that people with a bachelor’s degree or higher favored Democrats by 22 points. As recently as 2010 that group was split evenly between the two parties and in 1992, it favored Republicans by 4 points. On the flip side, Republicans have gained plenty of ground with non-college educated whites in recent years.

I’m beyond elated. I really am. Aside from my local representative getting smoked (which was expected, since I live in a largely Republican precinct), it has been a good night for Minnesotans. We have a Democratic governor, we kept our Democratic senators, and we helped propel the Blue Wave in the U.S. House of Representatives. I can go to bed satisfied that I helped make a difference in our country. I’ll see you guys tomorrow night.

re: #454 HappyWarrior

Well here’s why I think you shouldn’t be surprised. We went for Clinton by 10 points. We’ve been trending Democratic since Obama beat McCain. I believe Obama beat McCain here but Romney won. The thing is though. Frank Wolf won re-election for years because he was respected and seen as someone who got stuff done. Comstock got elected first in 2014 in a Republican year and as his protege. She sort of benefitted in 2016 since people really weren’t sure if her opponent lived in the district. Wexton had a lot of VA-10 bonafides. Her state senate district is just east of mine and I actually first met her at a Farmers Market when I was a volunteer for Perriello. She signed the petition even though she supported now Governor Northam since she’s a good sport. I’m not surprised Jen won but I was shocked that it was called so early.

Oh yeah, some positive features that made it a likely pickup. Still you never know. Am surprised we beat brat. So Dems now have the House seat that belonged to, what, the former House Republican Whip (whatever Canton was)

I don’t think any of us realists were under that particular delusion. Going into this, I never thought the outcome in the Senate was in serious doubt. I was only slightly concerned that we might not win the House like we were projected to.

re: #549 can’t think of a decent username

Hypocrisy (EDIT: and a complete lack of empathy) is the fuel of conservatism. My “favorite” example is Texas governor Greg Abbott, who got super-rich suing after he was paralyzed in an accident, and then set about making it impossible for anyone else injured in an accident to sue people for more than a pittance.

Wow I knew Abbott got paralyzed but didn’t know. But you’re right and it’s why I hate conservatives. They are the typical fuck you I got mine type of people that I can’t stand.

One of my neighbors on Key Biscayne told me the reason Cubans were so much better than other nationalities in the Caribbean was that they had killed all the Indians rather than interbreed with them.

Absolutely. I can’t believe anyone who knows that story would vote to put him on a condo board.

? What story is that? Sorry I only know Abbott as Governor TCOT since he’s always fishing for approval from conservatives on Twitter rather than you know being a governor for all Texans regardless of ideology.

“…When a 75-foot oak tree snapped and fell, crippling a jogger named Greg Abbott in July 1984, he did what most Texans would do: He sued the owner of the tree. A few months later, Abbott’s attorney also sued the tree-trimming company that had worked on the giant oak, and within a year, the homeowner, the tree company, their insurance companies and Abbott had agreed to an out-of-court settlement that would pay Abbott’s current and future medical bills and compensate him for mental anguish and for some of the income he lost because of the accident.”

“Abbott, who is now a champion of tort reform running for attorney general of Texas, says he hears no disharmony between the actions he took then and the positions he’s taking now.”

When I took Latin American history, I learned that the Spainish set up a very complicated racial hierarchy system. Sadly the legacies of that remain in Latin and South America. My sister in law’s sister was telling me about colorism in Peru and colorism is a subject that we Anglos really don’t think about that much even though we should. Peru and my SiL’s history is why I would love it if my niece took a DNA test. That little girl is hysterical though. She didn’t like me telling her she was a 1/8 Irish. Ironic since her birthday is near St. Paddy’s lol.

That’s sort of the whole reason the transatlantic slave trade ever happened.

The people who were already in the western hemisphere before Columbus arrived, half of them died from smallpox, measles, mumps, whooping cough, scarlet fever, etc., even before any of the bullets & swords deaths.

re: #561 jaunte

There’s a terrifying podcast called “Dr. Death” about a Texas surgeon who cripples and kills his patients. Some debate as to whether he is purely incompetent or purposely killing and maiming his patients, but he’s eventually locked up for life. Appealing though, of course.

Anyway, due to Texas’s horrible “torte reform” it was hard for the surviving patients to find a lawyer to represent them in their cases against the surgeon. (No money)

These are people who were butchered by this doctor, and got very little compensation. The podcast host opened a can of worms by bringing up torte reform and the damage it causes. Basically, the point of it is to make malpractice insurance cheap for doctors while screwing everyone else. Naturally, she got and continues to get a ton of hate on social media for daring to state what Texas “torte reform” is all about.

The descriptions of what the doctor did to those people is some of the most horrifying shit I’ve heard. Scarier than any horror movie, because it’s true.

Reminder: it’s hard to win when 100,000’s of your voters are disenfranchised. The majority are racists who are the ones voting — and they are fine with Kemp.
