Your last sentence defeats your own argument. Should those 30,000's votes be artificially counterbalanced with low population, low tax revenue districts? Why should someone in a rural red county who has a net negative federal tax bill have their vote artificially buoyed to equal a voter with a net positive tax bill? Get rid of the Electoral College, its an archaic system that no longer serves a valid purpose.
The comment about 30,000 taxpayers furnishing a very large share of California's tax revenue was related to the vulnerability of the state to relocation, not to voting. Pretty easier for many of these taxpayers to relocate to Nevada or Arizona.

No, but legalizing drugs is not likely to have much impact on urban street crime.
So gun regulation is the only answer???

I "feel" her comments were totally inappropriate, insensitive and ignorant.

There are some issues that are not "fodder" for comedic analogy/comparison or entertainment factor/amusement.

I don't "think" any parent, Conservative or Liberal, who lost their child in that tragic school shooting would find anything "funny" about what this self-proclaimed foolish comedian floated as political activism.

And neither do I.

Yes, she crossed a "sacred" line. And fits Bobby Jindal's description of what (**some in ) the Conservative Party has become, stupid.

**Note: I stated "some". Especially with regards to the abortion issue.

How do you feel about Victoria Jackson's comments?

She's a self-proclaimed conservative activist.

Did she cross the line calling those who abort their babies killers like the man who mass murdered 26 innocent people inside a school?

I guess you're saying "not bad for a second term" since it was better than either of Bush's wins.
No, actually I'm saying that the illegitimate babymama lied about Obammy's popular vote amount and that Obammy received less of the popular vote in 2012 than he did four years prior, which means that fewer people desired he remain for an additional term of incompetence and failure. LOL

Ignoramus by Choice, can you figure out the difference here? " Mr. Obama has made about 32 such appointments, including that of Richard Cordray, as director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. President Bill Clinton made 139, while Mr. Bush made 171, including those of John R. Bolton as ambassador to the United Nations and two appeals court judges, William H. Pryor Jr. and Charles W. Pickering Sr.

Nearly all of those appointments would be unconstitutional under the rationale of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit."

Stupid ol' faux engine say what? Let me help you with your reading disability. I quoted: 1. Barack Obama has won an overwhelming majority in the Electoral College, a daunting majority of the popular vote and a majority of the nation’s states—including most of the country’s largest states and states in every major region of the republic: New England, the mid-Atlantic, the Great Lakes, the South, the Southwest, the Mountain West and the West.
2. Barack Obama has won more popular votes than ANY DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT IN HISTORY EXCEPT- BARACK OBAMA IN 2008.
3. Barack Obama is the first Democratic president to win more than 50 percent of the popular vote in a re-election run since Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1944.
4. Barack Obama is the only Democratic candidate for president since FDR to twice win more than 50 percent of the national vote.
5. Barack Obama has, in both of his presidential runs, won a higher percentage of the national vote than any Democratic nominee since Lyndon Johnson in his 1964 landslide victory.
Add it all up and Obama has a mandate from this year’s presidential election that is significantly greater than those afforded John Kennedy in 1960, Richard Nixon in 1968, Jimmy Carter in 1976 or George W. Bush in 2000 or 2004."

So the dead Americans never really were the concern. The only thing that ever mattered was how their deaths were explained to the public. You're the first to admit this.
Also, interesting is your casual dismissal of the murdered children. Saying, "the facts are obvious" is a pathetic dodge.
It is impossible to defend any embassy in a foreign country from a coordinated military attack carried out with the consent (or at least lack f opposition) of the foreign government.

Guns save lives.

"D.C. police are investigating whether a man will face criminal charges for shooting a pit bull that was attacking a child in his neighborhood.The incident unfolded Sunday afternoon, after three pit bulls attacked an 11-year-old boy as he rode his bicycle through the Brightwood neighborhood of Northwest, according to a police report.When the man, a neighbor, saw the boy being mauled by the dogs, he went inside his home and got a gun. The man killed one of the dogs. The gunfire attracted the attention of a police officer in the area near Eighth and Sheridan streets, where the attack occurred. The officer responded and shot the other two pit bulls as they continued to attack the boy."

Let me help you with your mental disability:
Obammy received just over 51% of the popular vote in 2012, which was even less than he received in 2008, even though illegitimate welfare babymamas and corresponding ilk such as you slobbered at his loins throughout his previous four years of incompetence and failure.(How much do you draw in disability, both mental and illegitimate babymama?)

Four American adults were murdered at a U.S. Embassy in an unstable hostile country. For months there has been an incessant cry from Republicans to uncover every possible detail regarding how this could possibly have happened, or more specifically, what role Obama had in this tragedy.
Back here in Connecticut twenty little children were slaughtered in their schoolroom and these same Republicans merely shrug their shoulders and claim the incident is being politicized to take their guns.
Is this hypocrisy or stupidity?
BOTH.
