Don't count Dems out

A lot of breathless speculation today about the demographic shifts in the 2010 census count.
By that new count, Texas will gain four seats, Florida will gain two, while New York and Ohio each lose two. Fourteen other states gained or lost one seat. The gainers included Arizona, Georgia, Nevada, South Carolina and Utah, and the losers included Illinois, Louisiana, Massachusetts and New Jersey.

“This teaches us how we’ve changed as a country,” said Robert Groves, director of the Census Bureau. “The trend is for a growth in seats for western and southern states.”
While the shift in electoral votes may amount to some trouble for Obama, the mitigating factor in the potential popular vote is much of those population gains came from Hispanics and most probably relocated Northern Dems, like me, who moved south to escape the cold. While my state stays the same and I'm still way outnumbered here in the little city, unlike real estate, location alone isn't everything.

The Republicans will make their best attempt at gerrymandering in the near term, but in the long run, liberals just might remake the south into a reality-based community.

"The Republicans will make their best attempt at gerrymandering in the near term, but in the long run, liberals just might remake the south into a reality-based community."

On the other hand, the relocated liberals might just develop values and morals. Maybe they will learn that you cannot equate abortion to any right that ever existed in human history (reproduction rights, an idiotic concept created by murderers on the left). Not accepting behavioral traits is not the same as being bigoted based on physical traits. The lunacy and rationalization from the left never ceases to amaze me.

As for your earlier comment about having a stalker, don't flatter yourself. You advertise this joke of a blog on the Detroit News and I don't post anywhere else but here and there. Judging from your picture on the Detroit News, being stalked is wishful thinking. I originally tried to be polite, but your ignorant pit bull in residence, the foul mouthed Capt Fogg destroyed any notion of civility. He is a pathetic and sad excuse for a man who lives under the delusion that having a high IQ makes him superior to others. I hate to inform him that it doesn't. The fact that he has to flaunt it and degrade others is because it makes him feel like an elitist shows a lot of insecurity.

As a Christmas gift, I will refrain from posting to your pathetic blog. You can either live in an angry world that is framed by your failures in life or you can go out and expand. I bring up your high school level education as an issue because you called others uneducated for not sharing your beliefs. I have a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Management Information Systems. I was a high school dropout and managed to get my degree by going to night school for 7 years. That is why I found your excuse for not getting an education flimsy and nonsensical. One should never stop learning. For the information of Capt Fogg, I just finished reading "Traitor To His Class," a biography of FDR by Bland. I'm now reading The Great Improvisation, Franklin, France And The Birth Of America. So when he categorizes me as an uneducated, racist hick, I become disgusted and tired of hearing the same liberal bromides from the same core of liberal zealots.

Have a Merry Christmas. 25 December was declared a national holiday named Christmas. I have a Christmas tree and say Merry Christmas to others. If they don't like it then too bad. Political correctness is not my strong suit and will never be.

Ruth:

I'm going to take one more parting shot at you. I give more in charity than you or any of the other left wing moon bats on this blog. So in the future, stick with your bad acting and leave political commentary to those who have actual jobs.

DBrashier:

You and Libby should get together. You'd make a lovely 2-pack of something. I just don't know what.

Yeah, me too and besides reality doesn't matter to him -- only the straw men he makes up -- and of course I'd be 'destroying civility' to mention how his obscene obsession with my gonads and my invented fantasies about my civil war relics make up 97% of what he says. Civility!

Being such a loser, of course, he has to assert that people are looking down at him here because they're elitists and not because he's a foul mouthed, neurotic and hate filled worm with delusions of sanity, nothing whatever to contribute and the gall to brag that he says "merry Christmas" as though he were the only one - the last bulwark against a completely fictitious "war."

And by the way, Happy Christmas to you and Libby and any other people of good will who haven't left here in disgust.

Oh boy, Capt Fogg calling someone a loser. From a sad, warped and demented excuse for a man like Capt Fogg, I simply consider the source. Now go under the tree and get your new gun, an object that will provide you with some artificial manhood to get you through another year. I just hope the coming year sees your sick fantasies remaining just that, fantasies. You provide greatly needed comedic relief to those of use who don’t need such props and who don’t harbor perverted ideas of shooting those we disagree with.

Enter Dr. Freud, stage left -- full of creative analysis of dreams he imagines other people must have since he has them himself.

You know your shit is automatically blocked and I'm only letting this one through the filter for amusement purposes. You do know that, don't you? You do know that your fantasy about anyone giving a crap what you say is just that - a fantasy.

How long do you think anyone is going to buy into this bizarre gun thing you have and use in lieu of an argument? No, sorry, you've got loser written all over all your posts. Only a loser would keep this shit up and only an idiot would think he was making progress.

Why don't you simply drop the diversions and make some kind of a point that wasn't an empty insult? Yeah, sure you could do that, right?

Well, I don't imagine you can, can you? I do imagine you're neurotic enough to think nobody's noticed that you've never said a damned thing that wasn't an ignorant, pretentious and empty bit of bloviating braggadocio. A single sentence that had any actual content, wasn't based on a fantasy or prejudice of yours or an attempt to set yourself up as an authority on anything at all.

And then there's the fatuous and desperate hope that endless and relentless repetition of fiction would make it more credible, if not actually true. What would you be without it? That's right - just another nobody with borrowed reactionary rhetoric and a disturbing obsession with masculinity, firearms and male genitalia.

My party's on the boat this evening, thanks, and I'll pass this one around with the Cliquot to amuse my friends once again.

So have yourself a hissy little Christmas. Enjoy the laughter. Fantasize about having real friends, real respect in a real community. Dream about being able to destroy people who have what you think the world owes you. Wrap yourself in lights and go out and piss in the snow - maybe then somebody will notice you. Make sure it's not the cops.

And stop pissing on Christmas - some people take it seriously. Some aren't as kindly as I am.
