I think the outfit is cute. Certainly the cutest I’ve ever seen Bernice.
No, it always quickly become two. The Federalists disappeared, the Whigs came. The Whigs disappeared, the Republicans came.
You need a majority of the Electoral College to win the Presidency, not a plurality. 3 strong parties means that Congress picks the President. The Democrats and the Republicans are both coalitions of smaller groups that got together to get the needed 50%.
I love the 5th of July because the stinking fireworks stop.
What a stupid tradition.
Two major parties is the inevitable result of the Electoral College. So they may not have realized it, but they created a system that caused it.
“That’s your standard of reality?? Comic strips?”
My avatar is my actual photograph.
And we think that if it’s not a problem for us, personally, it’s not a problem for anyone. Thanks for pointing that out.

Lead and read don’t rhyme.
Neither do lead and read.
On the other hand, lead and read rhyme.
So do lead and read.
Missed to opportunity to show the kid how to find the North Star.
Draco, like the Dipper and Cassiopeia, is always near Polaris, but is really dim, long, and hard to find, so it seems odd that he would spot it at all.
My generation. We were anti-war when we were the ones being drafted, but when our kids were the same age it wasn’t us fighting it, we created a state of endless war.
We invented Earth Day when we were young, and then gutted environmental protections because we didn’t want a billionaire to lose his tax cut.
We decided that 30% interest wasn’t usury. And that it was fine to loan-shark 18-year-olds.
We decided that our kids should start their careers with a $50,000 debt that increased at a rate that used to be illegal.
We ran up mountains of unpayable debt for absolutely no return, but figure we’ll be dead when it’s time to pay the piper, so we don’t care.
