    I love this country.

    **** the Nazis who are temporarily in power because *******s voted for them selfishly.

    We will beat them and restore this country and we will drive them back under their rocks to choke themselves to death on their own hatred.

    3. * Existing will include all territories and possessions -- we're pulling everybody in at one go.

    Current US state population stats:

    56 entities (50 states, DC, 5 territories and possessions)

    Average ratio of US population for 50 new states: 2%

    Largest allowed under new system: 5%. Entities currently in excess: 4 (CA, TX, FL, NY)
    Smallest to be allowed: 0.5%. Entities currently below: 16

    CA splits into 3. Add 2 entities. (D+2) (R+2)

    TX, FL, NY each split in half. Add 3 entities. (D+6)

    Merge AS, MP (Marianas Islands), and GU with HI.

    Merge VI with PR. (D+2)

    Merge DC with MD.

    Merge NH, VT and ME. (D-2) (R-2)

    Merge MT and WY. (R-2)

    Merge ND and SD. (R-2)

    Merge DE with MD. (D-2)

    Merge RI with CT. (D-2)

    AK (.22) is under the floor but it's unique, leave it alone.

    Total effect: (D+4) (R-4)

    We know it was hard not to nuke anybody. Every day in every way, you are getting better and better.

    That would have just made the population differentials even worse.

    I sure am glad when the GOP offices were burned down prior to the 2016 election the state Democratic Party gave the Republicans financial assistance. That has paid off in spades.

    Once they control the whole shebang down there, let's hope the Dems remember this and show no mercy.

    Quit whining and work to get your candidates elected if you think they can do better than the incumbents.

    Sure, if you say so.

    I feel your outrage. Now go throw some more kids in cages.

    And no, I don't support fascists. But you do.

    Awesome. Dimwit Donnie wants to extend a $15 billion line of credit to Iran, if they come back into compliance with the negotiated nuclear deal.

    You know, the deal they were in compliance with til he dumped new sanctions on them.

    Yep, he's the great negotiator alright.

    You don't have a choice in that matter. You either do that, or go to jail. /semantics

    To me, serving your country goes above and beyond what the average citizen does.

    Sniffles apparently forgot Barron was his son. Which I suppose is understandable since he was preoccupied during Melanie's pregnancy and Barron's infancy.

    However, if he banned vaping because it was a threat to Melanie's son, wait until he finds out how dangerous school shootings are.

    I don't understand that requirement that it be beyond what the average citizen does.
