Stealing things from their original home and moving them somewhere else is exactly what the Confederacy was about, just with humans.

I didn't expect the story to be about a random chair dedicated to the Confederacy and found in a tattoo parlor. This story reads like ad libs.

Apparently that's okay. As long as he stole it because he didn't like it, he's good to go.

Isn't this a rerun I read about a while back about someone going to make a shiatter out of it?
Whatever, and speaking as someone whose great grandfather (out of Va) was wounded at Gettysburg I say get rid of all that shiate,including the electoral college. It would improve the Nation, it really would.

That's a shame. That it was found. In one piece.

What I am saying is those losers don't deserve it back. It should have been destroyed years ago.

Write your senator about revisiting the reapportionment act. That can be done legislatively and now. Dissolving the EC cannot. That would have a very similar effect.

Spread the word.

You're confusing Trumperism with "I'm a lifelong Democrat, but these uppity black people offend my middle-aged white woman sensibilities. Can't they go be oppressed somewhere else?"

Yes and the North was lily white regarding that.

The problem is not the EC - as in that a representative casts votes as a proxy for the public.

The problems are:

1) The EC has not been expanded in forever to account for population changes, this is deliberate to undermine the system and give low population states too much power.  Reapportioning the number of colleagues will greatly solve this.

2) EC votes are cast according to first-past-the-post rules, which are stupid and encourage two shiatty parties.  Proportional voting and reapportioning will completely solve this.  You won't see Trumps or Biden's winning.

Writing my Senators (I do have two of them) would do no good.  One of them (Dick Burr) is retiring, although I hear he has further employment hopes in the arena concerning lawn mowers.
The other one, Thom Thumb Tillis (pronounce as you will) and judging from the crap I get back from petioning him endlessly, would be a total waste of time.  Although I will continue to petition him (my right according to the Constitution and despite the ever present pleas for contributions), about all I can say is that Republicans are, without a doubt, unAmerican and a danger to the Republic,.

The Confederacy was about purchasing stolen things, not stealing them.
