Some "stomping" LOL.

What is a popular vote? Is that something they use in other less advanced countries? In this country, we use a method that gives voice to all states and affords the opportunity for a state to match their presidential choice with their legislative choice. It's called the electoral college. This prevents overly populated states full of uneducated people from having a greater influence on smaller states.

I guess you don't know that the number of electoral votes is proportional to the state's population. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Just a few quick questions about the repeal of those two laws. What the hell is going to happen to the children of illegal immigrant who were born in the us if their parents are deported? Will they be deported too? Will they be taken in foster family, or with relatives who have the American citizenship, should they, or their parents, wish to stay? Should they be deported, could they retain their american citizenship should they want to return the the US later? For the "dreamers" and their family, how will their assets (houses, businesses, etc.) be handled? Will they be bought or seized?

BTW, should those two laws be repealed and deportation efforts become rapidely very vigorous, the photos of children and families being forced into planes and trucks by police forces is going to make great pictures for history books. Episodes of mass deportations and exodus were always so pleasant and good for the reputation of the country conducting them. Imagine if those millions of illegal immigrants and their supporter decided to resist en masse to those deportation efforts. But let's not beat the dru of the worst possible scenario. It's unlikely that such an effort would be botched to that point. Yet, I wonder how will the new governement prepare for the worst case scenario.

Sell them on E-bay??

Sometime there's a car crash to punctuate the race. It doesn't make the show much better, but it can make for a cool compilation on Youtube. If Trump gets a pie in the face and a gets a good wedgy it could get funny and entertaining. The wedgy would have been better on Clinton though. She had more dignity than Trump.Consider

I know you all are suffering from the waiting like I am. It seems like forever since Trump stomped Hillary Clinton. Now you can check it when your anticipation builds up and reassure yourself that it's almost here!

Trump has big plans for his 1st day. #1 on his list is the cancellation of Obama's executive actions DACA and DAPA. He will also be asking for Kate's law to be passed and on his desk on day 1. Paul Ryan has hinted at legislation blocking funding to sanctuary cities. The wall. ACA repeal.

Tune into the #1 news channel FOX News for all day coverage.

Gotta disagree with you. I find NASCAR boring as hell -- but it would be absolutely riveting compared to an inauguration. No comparison at all. If nothing else, the noise keeps you awake. Nothing could keep me awake during an inauguration.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Inauguration Countdown
I won't watch it...but I never watch them. They usually start too early for me and honestly I don't care enough.

I've been around this game long enough to have learned it doesn't matter, nothing really ever changes. People have short memories and will always repeat their past mistakes. People will always trade a false sense of present security for the future.

The pendulum continues to swing.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

In either case, the chance of watching a high speed wreck makes an otherwise boring event just entertaining enough to pay attention to.

RE: Inauguration Countdown
Here is an interesting bit:

Quote:The U.S. Army general who heads the D.C. National Guard and is an integral part of overseeing the inauguration said Friday he will be removed from command effective Jan. 20 at 12:01 p.m., just as Donald Trump is sworn in as president.
