Observations

After Clinton’s loss to Trump, the Left became crazed over the Electoral College. Their opinion is that the election was stolen by the Constitution.

Our Founding Fathers knew what they did when they put the Electoral College into the Constitution. They wanted to insure that the large(r) population centers in this Country could not by dint of numbers run roughshod over the smaller parts of the Country. To change this setup would require an amendment to the Constitution or a Constitutional Convention. Both methods are nigh on impossible as planned.

Now the Left believes it has a means of circumventing the Electoral College. They are getting the smaller states to pass legislation that would require the College vote for the winner of the popular vote regardless of how that state voted in the election.Washington State has passed this already.

By this manipulation, the large states like New York, California, Illinois, Florida and New Jersey with their high number of electors could with a sufficient number of smaller states control the outcome of National Elections. This obliterates the voter’s voices in fly over country. The voices of the Deplorables effectively snuffed.

That slippery slope then looks like this:

The ‘Green New Deal’: A Radical Mandate for Government Control of American Society

‘Ocasio-Cortez sees this plan is being a vehicle through which social equality might finally realized, as it will use reparations to right historical injustices’

Incoming New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez brings with her a massive online following, influence she says she’ll deploy only in support of candidates who support her plan for a “Green New Deal.”
“The Green New Deal” is something Ocasio-Cortez invokes frequently in media appearances and rallies.

So what’s actually in it?

Her office recently released the text of a proposed House rules change outlining the plan.

The proposed rule change for the upcoming 116th Congress would require the creation of a “Select Committee for a Green Deal” that would be responsible for creating the plan by January 1, 2020, with corresponding draft legislation soon after. The text of the rule change lays out the committee’s jurisdiction and required areas of action. [snip]

Early on, under “Jurisdiction,” the document makes clear its grandiose philosophical vision: “The select committee shall have authority to develop a detailed national, industrial, economic mobilization plan for the transition of the United States economy to become greenhouse gas emissions neutral and to significantly draw down greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and oceans and to promote economic and environmental justice and equality.”

In addition to achieving its goal of “meeting 100% of national power demand through renewable sources,” the document also repeatedly states the Green New Deal will advance non-environmental projects, such as, “social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice.” [snip]

All this ffrom the fool who killed the place where she worked and cost her co-workers loss of employment too.

 

Take it from someone who fled my native state, these have to all be Progressives who cannot wait to give the state their moey.

Vermont has a higher proportion of people moving there from out-of-state than anywhere else in the U.S., study says

Vermont’s population is among the smallest in the U.S., but a high proportion of people are moving to the New England state from elsewhere in the U.S., according to a new study.

United Van Lines, a St. Louis-based moving company on Wednesday released its 42nd annual National Movers Study, which tracks customers’ state-to-state migration patterns.

Vermont has the second-smallest population among states, exceeding only Wyoming, yet it saw the highest percentage of inbound moves in 2018 – at 72.6 percent. However, it’s worth noting that was out of 234 total moves.

A majority of people moving to Vermont cited jobs (34.4 percent) and retirement (31.2 percent), while 85 percent of the people leaving the state said they did so for a job. [snip]

Wait until they get a taste of the cost for utilities and food.

 

The Oscars, a show with a lower rating than the Chartered Life Underwriters salesman of the year extravaganza.

Oscars: It’s January, So Why Is There Still No Host?

As the holiday break comes to an end and Hollywood’s denizens stagger back to their offices, it is dawning on many that the Academy still has not found someone to host the 91st Oscars on Feb. 24 — just 53 days from now.

The Academy thought it solved this problem back on Dec. 4, when it announced that Kevin Hart would do the honors. But Hart withdrew just two days later amid an outcry over homophobic tweets that he had posted years earlier and his initial reluctance to apologize for them. Since then, Donna Gigliotti, who is producing the telecast for the first time, has been hunkered down in closely-guarded conversations with Academy CEO Dawn Hudson and president John Bailey.

Sources within the Academy’s 300-person staff and 54-person board of governors have told The Hollywood Reporter that they have no idea how things are progressing, but they are growing concerned as Hollywood’s biggest night rapidly approaches. Indeed, not since Jon Stewart was announced as the host of the 78th Oscars on Jan. 5, 2006, and only once before that in the 21st century, when Whoopi Goldberg was announced as the host of the 74th on Jan. 7, 2002, has the search for a host extended into the calendar year of the show itself.

Their problem is the difficulty in finding someone untainted in the pigpen called Hollywierd.  There is an answer:

Idiot’s Corner

We just kicked 2018 into the ditch and the Jackass Party is assembling a list of mental midgets to run for the Presidency.
First up is the MA squaw, Fauxahontas.

Into the ring goes her…er hat.
