The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the country. The bill retains the Electoral College, while ensuring that every vote in every state will matter equally in every presidential election.
The bill was approved this year by a unanimous bipartisan House committee vote in both Georgia and Missouri
The bill has passed 34 state legislative chambers in 23 rural, small, medium, large, Democratic, Republican and purple states with 261 electoral votes, including one house in Arizona (11), Arkansas (6), Maine (4), Michigan (16), Nevada (6), New Mexico (5), North Carolina (15), and Oklahoma (7), and both houses in Colorado (9).
The bill has been enacted by 11 jurisdictions possessing 165 electoral votes - 61% of the 270 electoral votes needed to activate it.

Cops gotta shoot people. THey usually get away with murdering black people. But is a black guy isn’t handy when the trigger finger starts itching they will shoot each other, their family members, or even themselves. They are psychos.
One thing that none of the stories are mentioning is that North Carolina has an open carry law. People can carry guns in their cars there (except for blacks, who will get shot).

Just the other day a thug Oklahoma cop shot and killed a black guy with his arms in the air. Meanwhile, a white looking Afghan had set bombs in NY harming about 30 people and he goes on to shoot a couple of cops. They shoot him in the arm and leg and take him alive. So yes, cops are racists. They’ve always been racists and will always be racists. It’s a job requirement.
WES, if all cops are racist then the only solution is to not have any cops in black neighborhoods and let blacks police themselves. Fair enough?
So does that mean black police officers are also racists?
The terrorist is hardly "white" looking and he was actively shooting at police and moving.
But, Wes, you are need racism because that's how you keep power -- put people against each other so that you can "arbitrate" and know what's best.

If we eliinate flags no one will have any reason to sacrifice themselves for them. Maybe then people can live in peace instead of being cannon fodder for dummy politicians.
Golly, I thought Jesus came to move you and your sort out of the caveman garbage into the reality that women are real and can do and have done anything a male can do, and more since they can birth a human being. Jesus changed the Old Testament into the New Testament when he said to John to care for his mother because he knew changes were coming but needed to protect her with a male as was the custom of desert people. Unfortunately, you and others, just like muslims, continue to want to treat women as less than you and just chattel. Sorry, you can sell but we ain't buying! Since I am a Catholic and know our history and history of many of the protestant churches and the weirdo churches, you need to bring you brain up to date!

So Trump and his idiot staff had 8 weeks to learn the rules about giving political speeches in churches. At the very least everyone should have been clear about what was going to be discussed. Trump might be slipping as a negotiator if he gets blindsided by something like this.
You know what hardon you're the one who is blindsided by all the liberal BS you idiots read.

They could have moved everyone into someone’s backyard and Trump could have given a 24 hour long political speech with no problem unless the neighbors complained about the noise. Political campaigning is not allowed in church buildings. It’s a federal law.

It seems that most people are ignorant of American law. If Trump had given a political speech he would have been in violation of federal law and it could have cost the church its tax exemption. If he wants to be President some dummy on his staff should have told him that. The church was 100% correct in stopping him before he started yakking about political matters or else the IRS would be all over them like white on rice.

Maybe people don’t go to church because women talk in church and don’t cover their heads.

Even the Ten Commandments say that you only have to show up just three times a year (Exodus 34:23). You just have to bring loot (cash) when you do (Exodus 34:20).
Yeah... as long as you keep handing over your church income tax that God uses to play the stock market....
Those are commandments to the Jews as a nation, as is evident from the details. They are NOT part of the Ten Commandments." Why muddy the waters?

The students were engaged in graffiti. They should be expelled from the school for defacing school property.

Every time there’s a riot or whenever some thug cops are choking a guy to death on the streets people should start blasting out the Star Spangled Banner on their antique boom boxes and the rioters and thug cops will stop their actions and jump to attention. Peace and harmony will be restored.

gekko, so the country got better under Jim Crow? Who knew that things were so wonderful then? I’ll bet the average black person didn’t think things were wonderful. I’m sure that most of them think that things suck now as well.
One of the problems is that too many cops think that they are members of the Slave Patrol who are chasing down runaway slaves.
[-4] September 3, 2016 at 3:42pm
I’m sure that the ignorant members of the old slave patrols could spin some entertaining stories about how they beat and lynched runaway slaves just like the creepy cop did about killing a black man.
[-33] September 3, 2016 at 3:30pm
Yep, praise the thug cops who want to have a police state and castigate any black person who dares say that the country needs to do better.
Jim Crow is alive and well.

The punk should be forced to listen to the Star Spangled Banner for 12 hours straight. That’ll purge the Stars & Bars out of him.

It’s a racist song that boasts about terrorizing and killing indentured servants and slaves who dared to fight for their freedom against the slavers like Key. And the racist bigot Woodrow Wilson inflicted the cruddy song on the nation. So why would any rational person be proud of it if he loves freedom and equal justice for all?
