Bernie’s running...

It starts.

Unless the field narrows to two candidates very quickly (whoever those candidates are) I predict a contested convention.

And, should anyone be perceived to be denied the nomination because of later-ballot superdelegate votes despite having more pledged delegates, particularly if lower candidates ask their pledged delegates to support that candidate, a shit-ton of moaning about "subversion of democracy". (Disclaimer: I may be among those moaning.)

That explains everything.  Got inspiration from the Discord to try .com instead of .net, and viola!  DADDY'S BACK, BITCHES!

Given that tickling only works when another person does it to you, I have to say we as a species really lucked out when it comes to masturbation.

Like, I am proud to say California is absolutely full of some of the most, shall we say, ill behaved liberals in the entire United States.

Trump tries to install that wall, he's gonna get all sorts of mischief.

Does he seriously expect California to just roll over and let him install a border wall on our southern border?

Depends on whether it's on federal land, or land that can legally be expropriated by the federal government. As an acquaintance of mine noted, yes, US federalism is built on states leading... except where the Constitution says the federal government leads, and one place where the Constitution explicitly tramples all over states' rights is in management of federal land.

And yet here we are.  Shackled to the rules because the previous group of people in charge didn't see fit to pull on the leash of the monster they created.

Ironbite-now that they see the writing on the wall they still refuse to do anything

Republicans will be very vocal about doing that kind of thing if they don't manage to get one of them as the next president. It will one of the first reasons for them to shit on Trump while trying to distance themselves from him.

Well right now some of them are pointing out that a Democratic President could do exactly that.

And here's the thing: I agree with them, as a matter of principle. In a system such as was set up in the US (as much as I think it is grossly flawed) it makes no sense for Congress to need a two-thirds supermajority to reclaim authority originally intended for it.
