The American Constitution is now well into its third century, which says a lot about the political sagacity of the Founding Fathers. Its adoption was a messy business. It gave the slave states additional seats in the House of Representatives by counting each slave — who couldn’t vote — as three-fifths of a person. Small states got two senators each, like big states.
Still, the amendment process helped the constitution keep up, more or less, with a rapidly changing world.

Single-payer, (Medicare for ALL) healthcare in California is on the block FRIDAY in the California Senate!
California here is our chance to be leaders in our nation in caring for one another. Healthcare is a right and not a privilege. The American people deserve the SAME healthcare that Congress persons, Senators and the President has.
So doth the Republican Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn of Nashville, a pretty educated city said to her constituents yesterday during a deservedly contentious come to jesus meeting all legislators need more than just on a now n' then basis.
Every time a drunken, crazed, right wing hoodlum yells "Yee-Haw" and blows up a non-christian house of worship or murders those wearing clothing different from the standard boots and jeans, He is actually following in the footsteps of the Southern Jihadist War of Aggression.
To demonstrate how deeply "our" (meaning European white) American culture has been influenced since its inception;
The battle cry: "Yee-Haw" is actually derived from, you guessed it: "Ji-Had".

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) decided to skip the in-person town meeting this week...So his constituents figured out his schedule, and took the town meeting to him, as chronicled by Dave Weigel on Twitter.
Things got heated, fast, as the crowd waited to confront him about a variety of things, looking at all the signs in the crowd, but particularly climate change and Obamacare.
The week of February 18-25 is the first week of the 115th Congress -- time specifically set aside for members of Congress to meet with constituents and get the pulse of the communities they represent.
He’s been sloppin them for many months. They feed on TrumpFacts. In the final days of his failed presidency, when he is being impeached, a ragtag assembly of his hard core acolytes will arrive in Washington D.C.. They will be having acute withdrawal symptoms and indigestion from their TrumpFacts addiction and need a fix.
Let me be Brutally Honest. Barack Obama ran on “Hope & Change”. Then He placed Goldman Sachs people in his cabinet. Everyone thought he was playing Chess while we played Checkers. We may as well have been having sex with Dick Nixon’s Dog.
Now when Donny Trump (the boy king) tells us it’s “Hope and Change” – Or – “Make ‘Murica Great Agin”. What do we do?
TrumpFacts were good enough to get him elected and good enough for their continued support. But when will this tip out of balance? Not soon enough for most of us, and not soon enough for those who are already starting to defect from his ranks.
I, like many people, enjoy a good discussion after a television show or a movie. I have always depended upon IMDB to read immediately after viewing a movie or my favorite television shows (the ones that make you think and feel). It was always a good place to be able to hear a variety of opinions. It was like having a discussion group about ANY movie, whether it be almost 100 years old or the new flop that went straight to video. My experience was that there was thoughtful discussion from a variety of viewpoints. Apparently, it was not like that for every movie
