Re: Let's all say Trump called for violence. Then refuse to offer any evidence.
I have a vision of a telephone recording at a Mafia boss’s trial:

“Shoot him in the head, boys !”

His attorney: “Well clearly he meant ‘with a water pistol’ !”


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: The big legal issue I wonder about:
It is pure politics.

Voting along party lines is pure politics.

Voting against party lines is pure principle.

Hi Percy- I'm using my phone right now - not a big problem, quite easy and no real issues :-)

Edited by vimesey, : No reason given.

Cruz shoots himself in the foot.
Just read a quotation of Cruz's from Monday, from his YouTube show apparently:

I'm not going to presume to tell you that what you choose to do is somehow illegitimate and should be eliminated.

I don't think I need to point out the jaw droppingly magnificent irony of this.

Re: Cruz shoots himself in the foot.
Sorry - was referring to him seeking to overturn the legitimate voting choices of hundreds of thousands of democratic voters by joining in the Texas action against blue state votes (as well as seeking to nullify them in the Senate). Seems to me he was trying to do exactly what he said he never would :-)
