    This was in anther thread but fits here well.

    "HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Virginia State Delegate Joe Morrissey (D - Henrico) will serve six months in jail after he entered an Alford plea in Henrico Court on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. By entering an Alford plea, Morrissey did not admit he broke the law, but did admit there was enough evidence to convict him.

    The plea came days before Morrissey was to go on trial on charges of taking indecent liberties with a minor and possession of child pornography. The charges stemmed from allegations Morrissey was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old member of his legal staff."

    So Virginia has a governor who can't remember if he was in blackface or a Klan outfit, and who wants to forget his rather offensive nickname, a lieutenant governor accused of sexual assault, an attorney generals also wearing blackface, and now a state senator who plead out because there was enough evidence to convict him of possessing kiddie porn and taking indecent liberties with a minor.

    Billionaire: Hmmm. I'll bankroll these Democrats to get elected and take everyone's guns. That'll show those Conservatives!

    Later, same billionaire: What?!? A wealth tax?!? Oh the humanity!! This has to be stopped!!!


    Sadly for him, there's no constituational amendment to stand in the way of these cash grabbing Socialists.

    I don't know why Republicans consider it so difficult to sell their vision to groups of people who aren't "white". Can't they bridge the "demographic" divide by bringing some of those blue people over to the conservative side? After all, wouldn't the core outcomes desired by conservatives - economic prosperity and freedom from tyranny - be appealing to just about anyone? Someone in some Republican think tank needs to be examining on a very granular level why they just can't sell conservative ideas well in the cities.

    Good description of what is going on. People who have a worldview shaped by living in a place where virtually no one has any autonomy and that is reliant on others to even push the elevator buttons, has no concept of what it is like to live in Indianapolis, much less the rural areas surrounding it and the self reliance necessary to live there.

    Thanks for sharing the article. Brings many good points.

    The forces working to undermine the 2A are coming from a much bigger wave. As I point out in the other thread about common ground with the left, the things driving leftism is the failure of our institutions. Companies have gotten too big, leading to great wealth disparity and its related conflicts. The education system broken, with a massive issue in the financing of higher education. These problems are so big right now that I don't know if they can be fixed without things get much much worse before they get better.

    Every time I hear or read about Bloomberg helping democrats, I can't help thinking, isn't it the democrats who hate rich people? Yet isn't it true that lately political races have come down to the person with the most money wins?

    They don't seem to care or be bothered by that. Whatever it takes to win.

    It does make you wonder. Minority and migrant communities actually have a lot of conservative values. If the GOP was seen as all encompassing, they'd should regularly smash Democrat candidates. Unfortunately, there's a long history of coded rhetoric, that makes minorities/migrants believe they aren't welcome.
