    Please stop with the jewish non-jokes. I'm half jewish and while it's the internet and you have your little hate boner for "jews" or whatever, I honestly find it offensive.
    I am three quarter jewish and find them funny. Same as nigga stole my bike stuff etc.

    MEANWHILE.
    A great article on whats happening in Pennsylvania.
    https://www.wired.com/story/pennsylv...ering-experts/
    Warshaw doesn’t try to prove that gerrymandering created that partisanship in Congress. His point is merely that in Pennsylvania, where more Democratic votes are wasted, it becomes almost impossible for Democrats to see issues they support turn into federal policy. This degrades trust in government and in elections.

    “Representative democracy should be largely responsive to what voters want, and if it’s not, it calls into question democratic bona fides,” says Warshaw. In societies where elections shut one entire subset out of power, he says, “all kinds of bad things can happen.”

    “Ultimately, people think why are we even having elections?” Warshaw says. "There’s nothing inevitable about democracy.”

    Politico's summary of the situation here:
    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...idterms-356522
    Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court ruled last month that Republicans allegedly gerrymandered districts to their partisan advantage, a violation of the commonwealth’s constitution. Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and GOP legislative leaders failed to agree on a new congressional map, triggering the state Supreme Court to use its own map.

    So far, Pennsylvania Republicans have argued that the state Supreme Court is infringing on the legislature’s power to draw congressional maps.

    “Implementation of this map would create a constitutional crisis where the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is usurping the authority of the Legislative and Executive branches,” state Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati and state House Speaker Mike Turzai said in a joint statement released Monday. “This map illustrates that the definition of fair is simply code for a desire to elect more Democrats.”

    But legal experts said the U.S. Supreme Court has broadly interpreted the definition of a legislature in the Elections Clause of the U.S. Constitution, including a 2015 case in Arizona, which allowed an independent commission to draw the lines, instead of the state Legislature.

    Since 2011, in addition to Pennsylvania, 11 other states are using congressional district lines drawn in total or in part by a state or federal court.

    Scott Gessler, a former Republican secretary of state in Colorado, acknowledged that the GOP’s effort in Pennsylvania is an “uphill battle.”
    It's a shame it's required the courts to do this, but I think, along with poorly regulated news media, is one of the fundamental problems with US democracy. Solving gerrymandering actually makes me more hopeful for the long term future of *humanity*.

    Only because the yanks have nukes.

    Otherwise we wouldn't care so much whether you've decided to be a developed country or not.

    The Don was doing so well with the shooting in the schools.. He was saying the right things, showing leadership and generally handling the situation uncharacteristically well. That was up until he had a fucking stoke or something and said this: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-02-2...otings/9473282

    Teachers are 1% of muricans at best though? Clearly the 49% know better how to provide pupils safety.

    I hate to tell you, but half 'Muricans, and 2/3 of your shop are retards. So is your gf apparently.

    Given how trigger happy the police is in the US, I'd hate to be the teacher with a gun in his hand when the SWAT team bursts in. I suspect 2/3 of teachers think the same way.

    And how about this: "Ohh, you want to be a teacher in this school [for a shit salary], well, let's enroll you in gun training then!"

    The whole idea is absolutely retarded ...

    He's the 45th president. He had custom shirts and even a cap made with it embroidered upon it. Ego stuff v0v

    The amount of training police and military get to safely handle guns in a high-stress situation, to know the ROEs by heart, on identifying threats in situations with limited distinction between hostiles and bystanders. It's a terrible idea really.
