Though you could argue that skews things towards cities.

Ummm... Good?


I think it’s fairer on balance - but the rural/urban argument is more nuanced than just population.

Rural areas typically suffer from poorer facilities/spending/whogivesafuckaboutthem etc.. per head because they are more spread out. Less economic for services etc... not coming down on either side - just saying.

Whatever the niceties the fact that a vote in Wyoming is effectively 67 times more powerful than a Californian vote cannot be couched as a legitimate democracy

Its the US ... its gun rated equality. California clearly needs more gang members not more people to improve the ratio.

Armed black security guard apprehends shooting suspect. Police arrive and shoot black security dead. More guns really solved that problem:

Trump ready to begin drawdown of troops at US-Mexico border

This is really worrying. Trump is employing every classic technique of an autocratic regime to erode democracy. Also see the Jim Acosta incident.

Yes, it was just a stunt, as was obvious all along.

What was that movie, where they invented a war to distract from a presidential scandal? Hoffman was the PR guru, I think.
(I remember someone claining that movie was the genesis of the whole “Crisis actor” mythology).

This was the point I was trying to make to Will, on the other thread. The Liberal penchant for trying to see the other point of view, that leads to a false equivalency. Climate science, Flat earth, vaccines, the “Alt Right”, Brexit....  :ang:
