Saint Tim's Rant

My first rant, and I hope my last.
For decades, since the Republican implementation of the southern strategy in the 70’s, the Republicans have pushed to the right with bold steps. They have dragged their party and the country so far to the right they have now incorporated the lunatic fringe. They now enjoy the support of groups like Qanon , KKK, Proud Boys and actual Nazis. They now have concentration camps for illegal border crossers, most of whom could qualify for asylum. They now have sterilization of “undesirables”. We are an oligarchy that is so far to the right that centrist views are looked on as far left crazy shit. I am tired of over representation of empty (low population) red states telling me how to live. I am tired of centrist Democrats spending their entire time in office just polishing the turds left behind from the republicans. They are falling for the two Santa Clauses tactic. A link for those of you who need to know what that is https://www.salon.com/2018/02/12/thom-hartmann-how-the-gop-used-a-two-santa-clauses-tactic-to-con-america-for-nearly-40-years_partner/ .Yah, Bill Clinton cleaned up Their mess, just so they could do it again (bigger the second time).

It is time for far more bold action. On day one of new congress the Democrats need to take a hostage and a big one. Repeal Reapportionment Act of 1929 and refuse to replace it. Hold it hostage for; A constitutional amendment deleting the electoral college. It is really hard to gerrymander a district of 30K. Then ending of presidential signing statements. Reclaiming powers usurp by the presidents. Implementation of voting rights and regulations for all federal offices. Felons do not loose their right to vote in federal elections even while in custody. All elections must be auditable with a paper trail. No voter purging with in 90 days of an election and votes must be allowed to verify their registration on line. Long prison time for election and voter registration shenanigans. Write expected Presidential norms into law. Then when you get this done you can offer something like the “Wyoming Rule” as a compromise.

I would add split office of VP into two positions (foreign and domestic) each with own budget and tax base. Military comes under foreign budget including debt responsibility. Non running mates, each position is stand alone, and succession for president would be domestic VP.

Explain to me why I am wrong, please.

The numbers came from here .

To go from active to closed one must recover or die.
The mild condition population contributes to the recovered count.
So why would this not be an accurate projection?

Tell me about your Fortress of Solitude.

Working from home 9 days, sheltering in place 6, solitude 3.

My Fortress of Solitude is a 1976 double wide in an adult park sharing an eastern border with the cemetery. I would upload a picture but I do not know how and I do not have a week to clean first.

Anybody want to share their digs?

Since the Republicans consider it to only be shenanigans, to mess with voter data?

Would it only be shenanigans for all blue state voters to double the number of people living at their residence on the census form?

When Pence Pardons Trump

We must make him list each crime individually. I want none of this “any and all” language Jerry Ford got away with.

Please, don't impeach just yet.

Make the Trump stench fester. Start the hearings when congress returns. Investigate everything, starting with things like;
Why were the Trump children not charged?
What really happened in the Seychelles islands?
Was Barr’s appointment “The Fix”?
I am sure we can come up with 20 more points to air out.

Learn from the Bengasi hearings. The republicans made a lie into years a filling the airwaves with disinformation. The democrats have truth and facts use this as way to inform the public of all the corruption in the republican party. Air all their dirty laundry every night on the news for months. Stir up their shit every Friday weekend news cycle. Give our talking heads lines to say. Expand on the republicans think it is okay that ….(insert today's revelation here).

Make it so any senator voting to not impeach will imperil their own reelection. Drag it into the republican primaries. Make them beg for an actual vote to impeach in the house.

Well that is what I would like to see anyway.

So can Barr be impeached or charged with lying to congress?

That could be a great way to get things started, release the Trump stench all over the media.
