    48 years actually seems like a fairly long interval for the active electorate to double.
    The Boomers would've just been hitting their stride around then politically, so the demographic bubble was at its peak til now when the last of the millennials became eligible to vote.

    And 2% growth would be a doubling of the population every 35 years, and I doubt the US hits that (we'd be shrinking but for immigration).

    • A report that 79% of the Republicans now think the election was stolen is freaking me out. Is there any way out of this? Is democracy dying because of ignorance and hate? Obviously name-calling and impugning motives of “the other side” isn’t helping, but I’m so frustrated that’s all I have...

      • LOL: somebody is so going to prison for this. Hopefully it's Perdue, but most likely the entire Republican membership of the committee did this, and some poor, dumb, low-level staffer is the fall guy eventually. Sorry, kid, but that stuff they taught you about blind allegiance to authority at Liberty or BYU will not prepare you for the boys in your cell.

        Cons: scum-bags even in ways that wouldn't occur to you.


        The head of the House Armed Services Committee is accusing Air Force leadership of trumpeting the placement of a new aircraft operating base in Georgia in order to influence the state’s crucial Senate runoff races.

        The service on Tuesday announced four locations to place Air National Guard C-130J Super Hercules cargo aircraft, with the Georgia Air National Guard Base in Savannah selected as one of the sites.

        Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) said the timing of the announcement “raises serious concerns” and “could mar the service’s historically repeatable, transparent, and deliberate strategic basing process, which until now has helped insulate basing decisions from political influence.”

        He asserted in a statement that the move to include Georgia as a location “inherently politicizes the announcement amidst the ongoing Senate runoffs in the state.”

        The Air Force did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

        The service in June briefed Congress on three sites to be selected for the new operating bases, none of which were in Georgia, though Savannah was included in the original eight installations considered.

        The installations will eventually be home to a combined 24 aircraft, replacing older C-130H aircraft.

        Smith on Tuesday accused the Air Force of deviating from its plan in announcing the Georgia operating base.

        “The Air Force has traditionally avoided making basing announcements near an election so as not to be accused of playing politics with force structure decisions. In this instance, the timing and decision to include Savannah, GA in the announcement, when Georgia is focused on Senate runoff elections, raises questions about the Secretary’s motives,” Smith said.

        Sen. David Perdue, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and one of the incumbent GOP senators running in the January runoffs, lauded the Air Force's decision earlier Tuesday.

Even being white isn't going to help (we all know a sizeable portion of the opposition to Obama had nothing to do with him being a democrat or mildly progressive). The republicans in D.C. have seen now in no uncertain terms for 10 years what their voters are and what they want. trump only revealed the truth about a huge swath of the country.
                My favorite part is some of the quotes from Republicans about the cabinet picks. Stuff like, "I'm glad he's not going with the far left.". What exactly is far left in this country right now? Clean air and water? Alternative fuels? Health Care? Social Security? A fairer tax code? Main street economic policies instead of wall street economic policies?

                jfc. That's some scary fucking ****.
