Yes exactly. I'm toying with the idea of Hillary as a miller.

That's kinda the definition of rust belt.
Right. So short of going full Pol Pot, what can the TPTB do about it?
TPTB won't do anything. People need to rebuild communities starting with local food, the one thing 'conservatives' and 'progressives' can probably find common ground on. But to do so, progs will have to loosen up on agriculture/food/health regulations and cons will have to abandon chemical agriculture and crop subsidies
Local currencies can help. They keep money flowing within a given locality instead of moving out.
Luckily, my state has 130+ breweries and a hundred counties, better to spend the money on good beer than Bubba beer, keeps the money local and the water extraction.

Yes, dumbass, pay attention. We were talking about the reason people voted for him. The script works better if the audience is invested.

Fuck dude, its a reality TV show.

There are organized people doing violence in the streets, funded by political action committees. A special organization designed by government to organize political action.

To be frank, pretty sure Clinton was the designated winner, but something changed over the last week.

Trump looked like a deer in the headlights today after his meeting with Obama.

Something I can agree with you about, Jerome. First time I've ever seen Trump look legit a bit shell-shocked.

Think Obama showed him the alien bodies or wha?

I just heard one of my writer friends who lives in KY, she writes ghost stories and paranormal books. Some religious nut killed her cat and left it right where her 6 year old daughter could see

And people think I am paranoid WTF how can anyone profess to be a Christian and kill a cat because you don't like the books someone writes and make sure that a wee child sees it.

There won't be any unity. There is already a huge divisive issue baked in. A position opened on the Supreme court almost a year ago. Obama should get to nominate the successor, but the Republicans in congress are stalling, which is unprecedented and dirty pool. They say it should wait for the next president, which is just bullshit. There won't be any unity when the republicans are already stealing a supreme court nomination from Obama.

Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee Makes History For Waiting The Longest For Confirmation

Quote:
As of Tuesday, President Barack Obama’s choice to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia has matched the record for the high court nominee who has waited the longest to be confirmed for the job.

The milestone couldn’t be more symbolic. Garland, who was nominated in March, is poised to surpass Louis Brandeis, one of the greatest justices to ever live, who exactly 100 years ago endured the largest gap between nomination and confirmation of any Supreme Court nominee: 125 days.
This was written back in July. Seriously, what is different about Obama that he doesn't get a vote on his nominee? What is different about Obama? What?

It's nothing to do with Obama in particular. It's just politics and the way the numbers currently stack. If the Dems can do that to Trump then they assuredly will. Way things look though they probably won't.

Bullshit. This has been the most obstructionist congress ever.

No, it's because they're racists. They hate that a black man has been in the whitehouse - that's all.

I hate to say it but there are a great many of the red rural swath of Trump voters that are stone racists. My home county voted 73% in favor of Trump, and the people I grew up with are unapologetic racists. I'm not even exaggerating.

Ok I wondered if that was it. Perhaps you're right but I don't suppose there's any way to tell. One party will always try and block the other's nominations if that nomination facilitates the passing of law they disagree with for whatever reason. They will invariably do this with maximal effect at their disposal. It could be that really they don't care about anything at all except that Obama isn't white but how you would go about determining that is beyond me here.
