I guarantee it. smile

...air traffic controllers called in sick en masse on Friday, Reich believes Trump had no choice but to capitulate.

“That actually shut down the shutdown—that ended the shutdown when that started, just hours after air traffic controllers, in broad numbers… called in sick,” Reich said on CNN. “That broguht the shutdown to an end.”

And I agreed with you. No air travel is unacceptable, not surprisingly.

I'n not sure what you are claiming here: Do you mean you know all 1.4 million of them? Or that you know just one, who happens to be a Republican? N = 1 is not valid for making statistical claims.

I'm sure that 1.4 million includes some sociopaths who tend to vote Republican, because it fits their disease. On the other hand, they will probably get in trouble again and lose the right to vote. Many of them who really were rehabilitated and "Came to Jesus" (or whoever) will have a tendency to empathy and thus vote Democratic.

The next election will be interesting.

19 more days until Nancy Pelosi shoves her stiletto heel up Trump's ass again. smile

I think the "national emergency" gambit will be wonderful: The courts are going to cite the basic separation of powers in the constitution to tell Trump you can't just do an end run around the congress every time you don't get your way. To declare a national emergency you actually need a real emergency. Judges really have a fixation on people telling the truth, because otherwise it threatens their entire Branch's integrity and public trust.

let's say we gained a million democrats statewide.
And 400K republicans for a net gain of 600K Democrats.
Puerto Ricans have started moving here en masse since the hurricane too.
Even so it's hard to beat the massively entrenched redneck population, we got a Republican governor and a republican senator in the last election...which went pretty heavily everywhere else for Democrats.

Florida is a ways yet from being a reliably blue state but this can only help.

The funny thing is, if Cuba loved Trump, they'd let something like a hundred thousand Cubans emigrate to Florida and it's a good bet almost all of them would want to be Republicans, because they clearly wouldn't have much affection for the Left, and they're going to be indoctrinated by their Cuban-American counterparts that ALL Democrats are communists.

But of course, Cuba hates Trump with a passion.

Speaking of Cubans, Marco Rubio seems to be banging heads with Trump a little bit.

Takes at least four years for asylum grantees to be naturalized, so Cuba can't help Trump.

I realize that. This was a hypothetical. One would think that someone in Trumplandia would have glommed onto it in the early stages of the campaign as a long range gambit, though. smile
