Glass Ceiling

(Cartoonist – David Horsey)

In other news, it’s now official: former Speaker John Boehner’s House seat will be filled by a Tea Party candidate backed by FreedomWorks. Less than 6 percent of voters in Boehner’s district turned out to vote.

Meanwhile, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) says we all need to “be nice” to Donald Trump because he’s a beginner and has no idea what he’s doing. Poor baby.

Finally, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) projects that at least 25 percent of Puerto Rico’s entire population will be infected by the Zika virus this Summer. This is a very alarming report which Republicans will undoubtedly ignore.

I have some computer repairs to attend to so I’m signing off a little early today.

    Yes, let us by all means discuss anything but an historic event.

    “Less than 6 percent of voters in Boehner’s district turned out to vote.”

    The greatest reason for America’s never ending fever of political insanity. Summed up in one single statistic.

      While not related to this particular instance, I am convinced that America’s apathy toward voting is rooted in the existence of the electoral college and the overall feeling that my individual vote doesn’t matter. Because I live in a red state, my vote really doesn’t mean jack. Even if electoral college votes were awarded proportionally it would help IMO. This all or nothing crap is, well, crap.

        This all or nothing crap is, well, crap.

        It certainly is. The electoral college is an abomination.
