It's not quite that extreme, but votes from the less populated states do count for more. Anyway, a famous politician once called the EC a disaster for democracy, and he turned out to be right. Guess who.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is having a bad week – and it’s about to get worse. On Friday we’re expected to learn from the federal Bureau of Economic Analysis that the U.S. economy grew at a blistering pace in the second quarter of this year, further affirming the success of President Trump’s tax cuts and deregulatory efforts.

Economists expect the Bureau of Economic Analysis report Friday will show that the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP) grew between 3.3 percent and 4.6 percent in the second quarter – showing not only a strong economy, but one that is accelerating.

Schumer hopes each day to distract from the booming economy by championing a bewildering array of issues – the latest being the news that “ghost gun” plans will appear on the Internet starting Aug. 1 and enable people to make guns with 3D printers.

The Democratic leader started off this week confronting unimaginable polls that are good news for President Trump and bad news for Democrats.

Despite withering criticism for President Trump’s press conference in Helsinki, establishment outrage over his trash-talking of NATO, alarm among even his supporters about a looming trade war, lingering angst over families separated at the border and serial other “offenses,” President Trump’s approval rating over the past week crept higher.

A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows 45 percent of respondents giving a thumbs-up to President Trump – a record since he took the oath of office.

Unemployment among blacks and Hispanics are at all time lows in the history of the country. More and more of them are speaking up and coming over, nibbling at the left's dwindling voter base.

Brainwashing is effective on those susceptible to being brainwashed.

Trump is cleaning his own swamp. All these people connected to him, that have demonstrated to be no-so-good, are being called out and exposed. And some of these appear to be pretty swampy individuals.

I think the following applies at least as much to good readers:

“The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shockproof, sh*t detector.”
― Ernest Hemingway
Some of us come equipped with Hemingway's accessory, some don't, and then there are those that never read at all, or pay attention.

Trump Derangement Syndrome is in high gear in the media and all the left has to offer is socialism. Good luck getting that voted in.

Ooooooh! "Socialism"! "Socialists"! The dreaded"S" words. Almost as scary to the U.S. right as the "L" word......"liberal".

Let's see. I'm guessing that "socialism" in the U.S. sense might include:
----universal medicare, similar to existing systems in virtually every other advanced western industrialized society
----a healthy, well-funded, taxpayer supported public education system, possibly including free access to higher education
----a progressive tax system based on ability to pay, all loopholes closed
----progressive environmental protection regulations, with teeth
----acknowledgement of human-caused global warming and climate change, with policies to address it
----labour relations regulations to protect workers from the excesses of laissez faire capitalism

Heresy to the right, right? Of course this is a GOP in which, incredibly, a majority now reportedly believes Trump, more than they believe the entire U.S. intelligence community.

The barbarians are at the gate.

Talk about La-La Land!

White House bans CNN pool reporter from Trumps open press event after the reporter asked Trump about Michael Cohen in an earlier press event.

Apparently this reporter was abolished by Shine and Sanders and denied access to the open event

Abolished s/b admonished - auto spell check.
Although, abolished might work too.
