    Caravan stopped in its tracks?

    For those who don’t think it was a false flag ... do you want to provide an explanation why it arose suddenly when Republicans wanted to get out the vote and suddenly dispersed immediately once the election was over? Only Trumpers are dumb enough to believe this was real.
  2. Not saying anyone in the picture is in anyway associated with the KKK but.... the Dems picture looks like America today the Reps picture looks like a KKK club photo.
  3. I’m not sure why you keep pushing this narrative. The nature of the parties have changed drastically. The Republicans of the 1960’s had a strong Libertarian western wing and nominated people like Goldwater and Reagan. The Republicans of 2020’s is strong social conservative and are dominated by the South. The same South that was solidly Democratic in the time you referenced. The people are the same but in many cases they have just swapped labels.
  4. Just a point of clarification, I’m not and have never been Registered Democrat. In fact in the 80’s, I worked for Thomas Evans (R-Del) in Congress. Today, I’m decline to state and voted Libertarian because compared to Trump and Clinton, Johnson was the best candidate. Basically I soured on Bush when he pulled the South Carolina stunt on McCain. I despise Trump but hard to say the Dems are much better. I just hope one Party gives us a reasonable candidate this year but I’m not holding my breath.
  5. The problem facing the Republicans is two fold. One White Nationalists have embraced Trump and he has done little to nothing to disavow them, Two the Republicans have like it or not run candidates like Steve King who wins in Iowa and Aurthur Jones gets nominated in Illinois. As the Democrats become a higher percentage of minorities those who believe in preserving Anglo Saxon culture have fled to the Republicans. Given the already low percentage of party affiliated voters, these types of voters become a significant percentage of the Party. Many true conservatives like Jeff Flake are concerned and speak up but other go along because it is Trump’s Party. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/11/12/politics/white-supremacists-cheer-midterms-trump/index.html
  6. In all honesty who do the Democrats have to run? I struggle to think of a single viable candidate.

    Jeff Flake for POTUS

    Oh good. Let’s pick Beto who can’t win in his own state. Sounds like a good idea.

    Jeff Flake for POTUS

    It’s the same group that nominated Hilary last time and will likely elect Pelosi speaker of the house. Not very promising is it.

    Jeff Flake for POTUS

    I plan on re-registering as a Republican so I can vote against Trump twice.

    Huge Wildfires In California

    I will say to your point (and not Trump’s point) both Paradise and Malibu are in extremely high risk fire areas. Paradise is situated in wooded Canyon areas that funnel high winds directly towards the town. It’s not forest management because they almost lost the whole town in 2008. In fact, they had a fairly advanced fire emergency plan. https://www.sacbee.com/news/state/california/fires/article221420275.html Malibu is also situated in an area known for repeat fires. As summer droughts intensify people are going to have to create proactive plans to reduce the fire risk.

    Nice job Texas

    In a bit of good news the refreshing appearance of Dan Crenshaw on Saturday Night Live occurred. Looks like Congress has a good one. https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/wounded-veteran-appears-on-snl-to-get-revenge-on-pete-davidson https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/11/media/saturday-night-live-pete-davidson-dan-crenshaw/index.html i posted both the CNN and Fox News link so you can get the news regardless of what side you are on.

    Yep very wet springs, parched summers and high winds out of the Sierra’s are a recipe for disaster. The faster we can move to solar with battery backup the better. That way transmission lines can be shut off when high winds occur but power can still be generated.

    You do know fire insurance isn’t subsidized. If you are worried about insurance issues you should look at federal flood insurance for people building on barrier islands. That program is the real boondoggle.

    Lots of area in the Sierras and I agree that people should bear their own risk. Disaster relief however is helping people who have been displaced. That should happen regardless what the POS in the Oval Office says.
