    I'll take it!

    And do we need a climate change/environmental thread? Separate it from basic politics?
    I believe that such a thread could exist, but not through human activity.

I have been consistent on that to a fault and I'm pretty sure everyone here would back me on that.

    And like JL said, boomer hag is not innocuous. That you think people were attacking you or "breaking balls" is what is actually pretty funny.
    I never said you disparaged anyone. Its the silence when people say much worse things about certain groups, and the complaints with other lesser remarks.

    Without a specific example, perhaps it's because I don't agree with your take on them being much worse or maybe they aren't things I care about one way or another or maybe I just don't feel like it is important at the time. I don't have to respond to every post I disagree with or care about every slight. I post about the things that interest me. As a boomer hag, that is my right in the same way Maynerd feels compelled to speak out for all old, white men everywhere.

    Sometimes, you just need to represent, support, and defend your peeps.

    Now, get off my lawn.

    Good to know that like everything else, the idea of counting all votes is now a partisan issue. SMH.

    It's been a partisan issue since Bush v. Gore, if not longer.

    I've said it before, but I'll say it again. We need a constitutional amendment guaranteeing the right to vote. Do that, and the partisan gamesmanship goes away.

    On the House side, with the 39 close races talked about on Tuesday, the Dems lead 20-11 with 8 still undecided.

    "This speaks to a chronic lack of competition. In 2018, nearly a third of Texas' state representatives faced no opponent in the general election. That's not good for state-level democracy, which is supposed to entail, if not good options, at least an option when voters go to the polls."

    That’s what extreme gerrymandering does.

    Nah, Crenshaw's a scumbag.


    Five Republican candidates vying for seats in the U.S. House and Senate in November's midterms appear to be current or former administrators of a far-right Facebook group that has pushed debunked conspiracy theories and made racially charged posts about Muslims and black people.
    The group has a history of pushing far-right conspiracy theories, such as Pizzagate, the debunked theory that Hillary Clinton and other Democratic officials ran a child sex trafficking ring out of a Washington, D.C., pizza shop; last year’s white nationalist Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia; which members of the group have falsely claimed was “orchestrated by the left”; and the murder of Seth Rich, a former Democratic National Committee employee whom far-right followers have falsely asserted was murdered by a Democratic operative to help Hillary Clinton.
    The group has also made posts and comments calling Islam a “cancer” and labeled the Black Lives Matter group as “black supremacy with white masters.”
    The five candidates were Daniel Crenshaw, a House candidate from Texas; Danny Tarkanian, a House candidate from Nevada; Corey Stewart, a Senate candidate from Virginia; Matt Rosendale, a Senate candidate from Montana; and Patrick Morrisey, a Senate candidate from West Virginia.
    Since the original story by Media Matters was published Thursday afternoon, Tarkanian, Rosendale and Morrisey no longer appear as administrators. Stewart and Crenshaw remained as of Friday morning
