That same what.

Then you misunderstood. That comment has to do with the fact that the majority of Senate seats up for reelection in 2018 are in deep red states. This is a math problem, not another notch in your "both sides are hoooooorrible" lament.

Still trying to play your little games with me, eh?

TIL trying to clarify your shitty use of language = "playing a game". Fucking delusional.

Fuck the democrats.

We know.

I don't want them to regain anything.

We know.

That's your partisan whining.

TIL pointing electoral math = "partisan whining". Fucking obsessive.

blah blah blah

We know. Find a new tune already. The world has moved on. Why can't you?

Same goes for the democratic machine candidates

Same what? What are you talking about?

This is just more of your own partisan whining.

Me noting the fact that 2018 is an uphill battle for Dems to recapture the Senate is partisan and whining how? Your ability to make hay form thin air is astounding.

If tallying up the broken promises helps to drive out some of the hacktacular idiots in 2018 I'm all for it.

Nah. Every single GOP Senator could go out and shoot a random person in the face on live TV and 2018 would still work in their favour, the map is that bad.

I'm less interested in broken promises (all politicians have that problem) than I am trying to figure out what parts of the Trump admin could actually be called unconventional. Figuring out what parts will be basic GOP crap and which will be pants-wetting disasters will be crucial to navigating the next four years.

Think about the power to weight ratio--with as little as a plastic vehicle with a passenger or two would weigh on Ceres, the ratio would be very high, especially after they found the ferromagnetics in the belt that could be magnetized a hundred times as strong as today's (that story, "The Pirate", is still in edit), replace the magnets in a 100 watt motor with them, and one watt will run that motor as well as 100 did the old.

They already had real moon buggies, they're still up there. They used wheels, but the moon is a LOT heavier than Ceres.

Imagine playing basketball on Ceres? I might add that to a story, there were microgravity sports in "Mars, Ho!".

I don't back up daily, more like weekly, plus whenever I have a rash of new data. I keep the backup drive unplugged except when backing up, and never in s thunderstorm. Losing my non-backed up data would only hurt a little, it isn't like I'll lose a 10,000 customer database or anything.

Before I retired, backups were automatically done daily by software. I had to change the backup tapes weekly.

Journal Journal: Santa Killed My Dog!

They say that Santa's coming,
He comes 'round every year.
He comes he'll meet a shotgun slug
'cause he ain't welcome here.

Five years ago this Christmas
The fatass came around
With jingle bells and ho ho hos
And looking like a clown.

He came in for a landing
As I let out a yawn
My house is pretty little
So he landed on the lawn.

"Alot of folks just don't understand the frustration that the liberalists create by basically saying we can't say anything bad about anything. "

They should by now:

Nominee Donald Trump Hillary Clinton
Party Republican Democratic
Home state New York New York
Running mate Mike Pence Tim Kaine
Projected electoral vote 306 232

Because I've not seen a better single-sentence summary of why Trump won than your post. Thank you.

Those were all bad presidents. My grandmother, born in 1903, said Coolidge caused the depression but Hoover was a terrible president, too. Most historians consider Lincoln's predecessor, James Buchanan, .was history's worse.

I never thought I'd ever see a worse president than Carter, but GW proved me wrong.
