@CL - I suspect that a lot of people with common sense would sound similar to AP or myself, if they posted here, but most of them have enough common sense not to do so...

Marilyn Mosby as AG would be worse.

APop,
Sorry, sometimes I get you and Oak confused, easy to understand why.

jrgolden,
That reminds me of the salvation in Orwell's "War of the Worlds".
Oak,
Nice piece, something I've witnessed in uber city west coast and tiny town South. But Jeff Sessions as AG, holy christ.

@jrgolden, you are one of the few people that actually understands how government works. The bureaucrats and the line people actually run government. Politicians care more about photo ops and drama queening than actually learning how to do anything.

If I may ask Bruce's indulgence, this is one of the most cogent articles on the election I have seen.

Pay close attention to the cabinet picks, and their preexisting policy positions, of the President-elect. Then think about these people in the aggregate. Long term. Hopefully, the bureaucracy will be able to minimize the damage.

Re: “Here Comes the 'Ikea Effect'

I received an Ikea catalog in the mail today. It's 326 pages, very well bound on high quality gloss paper. They dropped some serious bucks putting this together as well as mailing them out. Ikea is making a serious commitment to this area.

Furniture, shmurniture; I'm looking forward to the meatballs. And, the restaurant looks like it'll be the biggest bargain, next only to Costco's pizza and hot dogs.

"As usual, the drama queen liberals have their panties tied in a wand." Not sure if this is a witch hunt or a panty raid?

Re: “"I Love You Too, America": Memphians Prep for Life Under Trump

As usual, the drama queen liberals have their panties tied in a wand. We did survive one president whom labeled black boys as predators, said he would never support gay marriage, and would end welfare as we know it. He also habitually raped and molested women before and during his presidency. Who was this ne'er de well you ask? Why Bill Clinton, the first black president.

Chill out says the straight white man from East Memphis.

Herr PG will be producing a most excellent reality clown show. It's been great so far! Big Ratings! It will keep his "chilled out" fans enthralled in between their doses of Oxycontin and Duck Dynasty. I am sure they will be ecstatic living under their favorite billionaire and military overlords. As for me? I've seen this clown show before with a different cast. It was canceled in 2007 when the production money ran out. LOL.

datGuy, Shep meant a higher percentage if you throw out all those fraudulent votes by Mexicans claiming to be black. Shep and I don't like a these factual facts anyway. As my last best freund Goebbels used to say, "Screw you guys, I'm going home"

Bruce, revealing a persons location is really bad. You should remove that comment. I can't believe you did that for anything less than a legitimate purpose like tracking stalkers or following up on people threatening others.

For those wishing to hide in the future:

Shep: "and won - more black votes than any other Repiblican (sic) in history".

Well, in every - single - election since the voting rights act killed Jim Crow up to Obama , a HIGHER percentage of African Americans have voted Republican than Voted for Trump. That's a lot of elections

Trump is an abject failure in reaching out to other groups.

Shep: "One of the reasons I don't often read the Flyer and especially comment..is because there are a lot of really rude people who comment at the Flyer - like you - who prefer to make personal insults when they can't come up with a legit comment on whatever subject matter is being discussed."

Shep, given your deceit, can I call you a deceiver? or would that be too rude for you? What is the response to people misleading everyone? Go girl?

2016: Trump 8%

2012: Romney 6%

2008: McCain 4%

2004: Bush 11%

2000: Bush 9%

1996: Dole 12%

1992: Bush 10%

1988: Bush 11%

1984: Reagan 9%

1980: Reagan 14%

1976: Ford 17%
