No one needs to investigate anything about the Electoral College. It's shortcomings are painfully apparent to anyone who looks at it. WHY it hasn't been changed is easy to understand - huge inertia, the difficulty in changing established institutions, and the desire by the minority groups it benefits (such as Donald's supporters) to fight to keep it in place. Any thinking person can understand that the candidate who got fewer votes in the last presidential election still managed to be installed as president due to the Electoral College's failings.

As far as the rest of your remark, the only one who is getting excited (and sadly, insulting) is YOU. In this you have learned well at the foot of your master, Donald, who cannot issue a sentence without insulting someone.
I find his insults rather amusing and at the same time rather pathetic and infantile.

I love the way he says that one or two others have mentioned that I'm rude while pretty much everybody (rightfully so) has said much worse about him. Projection as confession.

I didn't see that. Let me dig out the snopes page.

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/jane-fonda-pows/

I came across it a few years ago when I saw a letter in the local paper here demanding people boycott a movie of hers because of her supposed actions.
You'd think a quick fact check before a newspaper would print something like that.

Fifteen years since my last Bath? zzrmark may be correct. I'll take it into consideration, I never rush into these things.

So much dirt is being drip dripped out about Trump's dirty deals every other week and that is going to put a lot of pressure on Republicans in the Senate to convict him for crimes against the state. He will be Impeached by the Congress and it's going to be interesting to watch and note which Republican senators are willing to soil themselves by accepting a corrupt and blatantly guilty president. Because that vote will follow each senator for ever. Trump and team were so sloppy while committing their crimes that I'm willing to bet there are several smoking guns out there. The phone call between Trump and the Ukraine president is a perfect example of a MAJOR smoking gun. But there are more out there and crazy Trump likes to rule with fear instead of love which means most of his former and current employees hate him.
I suspect John Bolton will be next to turn on Trump because Bolton is well known for loving to get even after you stab him in the back. Trump might be clever but he is not a smart man. He leaves a trail of bodies after his offenses lol

You have to be a COMPLETE idiot to get away scot free with using the Russians to steal the 2016 elections and one day after the Muller decision you do it again by trying to steal the 2020 elections by using the Ukrainian government to do it again. Our reality has really changed. We are now a third world country. Where's my

What I remember is of her wearing an NVA tin hat posing with the crew of an NVA anti-aircraft missile battery. I know nothing of smuggled messages. Meanwhile while that spoilt rotten little rich brat was posing for the camera a lot of poor boys, black boys from the hood of Detroit and white boys from small towns in Nebraska were being drafted and sent to fight and die in the paddy fields of South Vietnam. Like Lee Harvey Oswald however America allowed her to return and she didn't even have the grace to just fade out of sight

Says a lot about the BE then. Maybe it's time for the Moderators to take a hike.
