Republicans and it pains me to admit to that.

Let's cut some slack here... Just a fact.

The Average IQ in the US is 100... meaning half of the people have IQ's of under 100. For every person above 100, there is one below.

This chart may explain a lot...

Quote:
Over 140 - Genius or near genius

120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence

110 - 119 - Superior intelligence

90 - 109 - Normal or average intelligence

80 - 89 - Dullness

70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency

Under 70 - Definite feeble-mindedness

I'd love to see a Trump IQ test. He's done his best to keep his grades secret, but I heard his prep school GPA was 1.9! I also read a comment by one of his professors at Wharton who said he was the dumbest student he has ever taught.

I imagine he was a bright young man, but dyslexic. It would affect his grades and possibly make him seem as dumb as a post to an educator.
But he had the chops to stay sober, stay alive, and become the POTUS.

I think you meant "the money" to make it through his college classes and get a diploma. It's amazing what a few million dollars can do, if you spread it around properly.

But the dyslexic or even illiterate can hire people to read the textbook to them. Then the professor wouldn't say they are dumb. Failing to do that when you have the money WOULD be dumb. The professor was talking about Trump's lack of understanding the basic course matter.

Returning to the topic of the thread...
Gerrymandering is just one aspect of the Supreme Court's partisan and anti-democratic (small d) agenda. In the past, supreme court jurists saw themselves as the last bastion in protecting individual rights and liberties. With this court, that is decidedly not so. Instead of shielding minorities and individuals with constitutional principles, they are actively wielding constitutional language as a sword against individual interests. In other words, the gerrymandering case is a symptom of a much larger problem.

Indeed. If the Supreme Court can not even be fair judges of what is right and wrong, then I'm not sure I trust any of their decisions.
And when the American people can no longer trust the supreme court to keep their best interests at heart then the court itself begins to lose relevance. It becomes merely another mouthpiece for corporate America.
