After the 2020 census ...

Which states do you expect to gain and lose seats?

How will gerrymandering affect the next set of House elections?

We need for Blue states to gain population and seats but I fear the movement from the Northeast to Texas and the south is not good for us.

What are your feelings?

Florida school massacre panel recommends arming teachers


My 2¢ - Train them to secure the students and themselves, not turn into Rambo.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The panel investigating the Florida high school massacre recommended Wednesday that teachers who volunteer and undergo extensive background checks and training be allowed to carry concealed guns on campus to stop future shootings.

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission voted 13-1 to recommend the Legislature allow the arming of teachers, saying it’s not enough to have one or two police officers or armed guards on campus. Florida law adopted after the Feb. 14 shooting that left 17 dead allows districts to arm non-teaching staff members such as principals, librarians and custodians — 13 of the 67 districts do, mostly in rural parts of the state.

We need to start researching how to defeat a John Kasich - Nikki Haley ticket in 2020

Kasich hasn't stopped running even after dropping out in 2016 and I think Haley's departure is designed to free her up for fund-raising.

Trump will quell any impeachment talk by promising not to run for re-election.

Of course, he will declare himself to be winning and express a desire to get back to making zilions of dollars.

Need Flower Advice

I would like to make a circle around the lamp post in front of my condo.
I want to make it 1/3 red flowers, 1/3 white flowers, and 1/3 blue flowers.

They need to be able to survive the hot S. Fla summer and not grow too tall or my HOA will complain.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in Advance,
