Re: EC(b) Explained With Maps

The article used the Mississippi as the dividing line. Then YOU used schools EAST of the Mississippi to try to prove some point. Just admit, you tried to sneak some flyover schools on the list to make it seem more impressive. It's plenty impressive without them, but I didn't read the article, just ...

Re: Trump Campaign Goes Full Racist

The problem with just blanketly calling Trump, or anyone, racist, is that it's a means to an end, that end being the elimination of debate and talking about that person or what that person is doing in the context of their job. Basically, "he's a racist, everyone who supports him is therefore r...
