Oh, I believe it.

The GOP is writing the book on how to govern America while in the minority.

The working title is "Tough Shit".

Its easy for states to govern themselves since all we have is an installed invalid who rules by decree. Most states are ignoring his fiat rule.

Texas got two new congressional seats due to population growth, 95% of which was non-white. Their bogus gerrymandering negates that fact. Exhibit A (or B perhaps) why we need nonpartisan committees to take care of this henceforth. MUST prevent this kind of BS.

They can't keep this up forever, and people will remember.

Rob Manfred probably doesn't like either of them. lol

Oh, great point!

I'm just pissed off that my Dodgers lost those first two squeakers. They're a better team than the Braves ;)

My philosophy on this? "What is, is."

Hey, did you watch the World Series last night?

That is not my philosophy. This country is sliding into fascism. A lot of good Germans didn't want to get involved and did nothing as Hitler took over.

I have not watched a World Series or any championship in decades. Unfortunately sports comes down to a big market vs small market thing. It is a shame but I would rather watch world series from the past not from the present.

Democrats did it exclusively for no less than 6 decades, so I don't want to hear COCKSUCKING SHIT about gerrymandering until 2050, minimum.

The GOP is not as big a majority as the map shows. Texas gained seats because of a increase in minority voters not whites. Yet the maps do not reflect that.


Maps reflect population, not skin color.

LOL, again the guy who "isn't a Democrat" fails to mention that Democrats through most of the last century were the ones who gerrymandered to your complete silence. Not being partisan, of course you are a Democrat. A coward dies a thousand deaths ...

Neither Atl or Hou are really big markets.


But HOU cheats of course
