  1. You, me, the normally reticent Pol Sci profs . . the entire herd We are all in this together.
  2. Maybe, but we have to try. Here on PA and elsewhere the Right Wingers seem to be OK with abolishing free and fair elections, and gravely subverting voting rights. What they do not grasp if that, if their authoritarian project succeeds, their own voting rights will also be tossed in the nearest dumpster.
  3. Political Scientists speak out . . https://www.newamerica.org/political-reform/statements/statement-in-support-of-the-freedom-to-vote-act/ Key points . . If Congress fails to pass the Freedom to Vote Act, American democracy will be at critical risk. Not only could this failure undermine the minimum condition for electoral democracy—free and fair elections—but it would in turn likely result in an extended period of minority rule, which a majority of the country would reject as undemocratic and illegitimate. This would have grave consequences not only for our democracy, but f
  4. I would argue that these two subsume each other, but I get that there are five. Amy did not know that ?? That is unbelievable. I'll wager that the Notre Dame community did a giant simultaneous cringe at that.
  5. From KOS - From Dec 23, 2020, until Jan. 20, 2021, the President of the United States, the man most responsible for the safety and security of the country, received — or at least was scheduled to receive — not a single PDB briefing. Thanks Deep State !!
  6. The Committee is moving much too slowly . . they need to look to Nicaragua for the ways to handle golpistas. (I was going to bring up Turkey, but they are sort of too extreme . . even for me)
  7. As usual the Candaians on PA are too polite to weigh in when their country is dissed, so I'll have to do it for them. I've been to London and Rome (but not Vatican City), and I'll take Ottawa - a world city that is actually polite. The Parliament building and Museum of History are wonders .. (Did I mention how abjectly stupid it is to critique a place where you have never been ?? so typical of US exceptionalists )
  8. I never got into the Dead, and know nothing about them . . so it would be really stupid for me to comment on them, right ??
  9. I have been to all of those. How about you ?? Been to Ottawa have ya ? Writing out the Wazoo are ya ??
  10. If Matt Gaetz can slow walk the Ephebophilia legal process to nowheresville, why can't she ???
  11. Well, you could have done a bit of research before spouting off . . I was in Ottawa for a week once at a conference during the summer - and did not see any homeless. But they were there - 1600 or so in 2020, but nearly all were in shelters, transitional housing or couch surfing. https://www.homelesshub.ca/resource/which-city-canada-has-most-homeless-people-capita-and-why On the whole, it sure looks as if Canada does a better job on this than the US. Class dismissed
  12. be nice if they went into irons - permanently. leg irons
