This probably makes me sound like a horrible feminist, but I really don’t give a flying fart that you had kids and also worked, considering you have enough money to pay for good childcare and health insurance without having to worry about paying your rent. I’m sick of her throwing “being a mom” out there like it’s a… Read more
A great point and I agree as well on the Bernie and Joe points. But hell, even with that agreement, I think we can all also agree that there is a HUGE cavern between the average person’s facilities at 77 and then at 87.

They’re bigots and I know it and it is what it is. It’s people like you, who are… Read more
1) Well, first off, because it’s in the Constitution—Article 1, Section 2. An “actual enumeration” is required every ten years, for the stated purpose of apportioning Representatives. It’s literally as bedrock a law as exists. There’s also rather a lot of federal law attached to it by now—which is specifically… Read more
