Good.

So many hateful responses, from so many willful idiots.


#3362

Hm. There should be an available list of all registered House lobbyists. Even better, you can check to see who they’ve been lobbying about what.

#3363

Yeah, but unless you check that list before you come in and before you even know who is speaking, you wouldn’t know.

The bigger issue is not who is and isn’t, but why are any lobbyists running the freshman orientation?


#3364

Yup. She’s not threatening Jr. She’s doing him a favour before he goes after someone with real power.

I would say a lot of those people are digital, rather than flesh and blood, however. Perhaps made of foot-coverings.


#3365

Meat market. They get to review the merchandise before purchasing. :sunglasses:


#3366

Aye, I sure hope so.


#3368

Not sure where else to put this, but this seems like the logical place:


#3369

I approve.

Time gives trump the middle finger.

And from the other hand…

Can you imagine the consequences if the Republicans actually showed respect and appreciation of the minority electorate? It might force the Dems to do more than superficially support them! It might make a more functional political system! It will, of course, never happen, because the Republicans are completely wedded to the alt.right neo-Nazis and similar “fine people,” but it does make for an interesting counterfactual.

I read that. In a system such as the American one where you end up with two large parties that house diverse coalitions of voters (or at least should in theory) it’s utter madness to exclude people like this. It’s a good way to make your party irrelevant. Do they just ignore political science? Again, good way to make your party irrelevant.


#3377

…unless you live in a white supremacist country with a long history of restricted suffrage. You don’t need PoC votes if PoC aren’t allowed to vote.


#3378

But they clearly do vote, even if they make it hard. And as a proportion of the population they’re growing. This seems so … stupid. No future there, it makes no sense.
