American Politics I: It's All Applesauce

Postby Farnhamia » Wed Dec 09, 2020 2:42 pm

The last election thread is here: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=494232
The last MAGAthread (not locked yet) is here: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=492535

The title comes from a quote from Will Rogers. I'll add one from Groucho Marx, "Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies."

I'll entertain bids to assume the Opening Post.

Here's the last post in the last Election thread: viewtopic.php?p=38068106#p38068106

New thread, so here's the current stats:

Trump and his allies have lost 52 post election cases. There's still about 20 cases being litigated.

So Trump could possibly lose more than 70 cases in total? (if he loses the pending cases)

Congrats Trump on diluting your win/loss ratio. Should've ran with that one "win" you got.

Yeah, and marijuana is almost decriminalized nationwide. Now the Senate just has to pass this bill to the President, and the President has to sign it.

You should google "Politics is applesauce" (I did misquote Mr. Rogers a bit). It'll be a fascinating look into the meaning of words in the 1920s and Will Rogers and ... stuff.
