    Equality based solely upon diversity will equal failure in real life. Failure in real life will require a political solution. The political solution will be administered by progressives.

    This is they type of blogger that is prominently displayed on Yahoo's homepage. My recollection is that the Left said the exact same thing about Bush. They tried to scare everyone into thinking Bush would declare martial law and extend his Presidency beyond his term.

    These people are corrupt as can be...

    Didn't Hillary say something about Trump not accepting defeat to her? And who refused to accept it after all?

    What happens if Trump loses in 2020 — and refuses to leave?

    I always enjoy your legal perspective along with your knowledge of Constitutional history.

    I agree the legal world is not impacted by the negotiated nature of states rights. I was thinking that when arguing for an amendment (or changing a law utilizing an "activist judge) people attempt to either bolster or diminish the words in the constitution. I believe many on the Left abhor the sacredness that many Conservatives impute upon the Constitution. By attacking the founders character and the enactment process long ago, one can possibly influence modern day thinking.

    I read the wealth gap increased lately mostly due to our aging society (since older folks are wealthier than younger folks).

    Total waste of money. I think we need a stupid tax that confiscates 50% of the wealth for anyone who donates to a candidate who doesn't even make it to the first primary.

    Imagine if that $74 million had been invested. Think of all of the jobs that would be created.

    Combine that with what we wasted on the Mueller Report and we are talking about some real money

    For starters, we could invest in a great opportunity in a bus

    It's kind of funny that in his effort to appease BLM and South Carolina blacks, he alienated at least 63 million other voters. I guess its the trap all Dem primary candidates can fall into.
    But, bottom line, anyone who calls 63+ million Americans racist because they disagree with him over politics cannot be President

    Horn6721 Half of seeming clever is keeping your mouth shut.

    They all call him racist but his actions that have resulted in better lives prove otherwise.

    This brings up civility and the way politics is done in the US vs. other nations.

    Remember back when the BBC first started being broadcast on cable tv in the US? Many, including me, were amazed that, in the illustrious House of Lords, they would loudly boo and rudely shout disapproval when the opponents spoke.

    There was a big fist fight on the floor of the South Korean House several years ago between rival politicians, involving dozens of them. Latin American countries sometimes break into fights on the floor of the house, and assassinations are just part of the mix of the way politics has been done down there.

    It's been a long, long time since we were this way. I think we're generally just kinder people who can handle disagreement better than the rest of the world. Note, right before the Civil War, a South Carolina senator kicked the *** of a Massachusetts senator on the Senate floor--he almost killed him on the Senate floor with his cane. So we were there a long, long time ago. I personally prefer more civil and polite ways to handle disagreements.

    If the dueling Democrats are absolutely determined to be this terribly uncivil, then that guy needs an a$$ whoopin.

    The dem convention ought to be a hoot too. I smell a brokered convention anointing Hilary. They are already in trouble with no minorities on the stage for the next debate. Booker and Harris can count on a VP request.

    Seems like that may be where we are heading. It's good for her since she lacks the health (and perhaps money too) to campaign anymore. I suspect all that campaigning might kill her. This way and can just chillax in the lazyboy, stroll on stage and take it all from them. Wouldnt be fair but I think everyone is past the idea that the Clintons ever cared about fairness.
