Annoyances And Off The Wall Discussions

Hosted by Maggie ^O^
Group active since Fri, Apr 11, 2014

We all get annoyed from time to time. Is there something you need to get off your chest?

What is annoying you right now? What has annoyed you in the past that never got settled?

Do you have a helpful suggestion for other members who are annoyed by something?

Do you have something off the wall you want to talk about?

Come on in, grab a drink, pull up a chair and vent your annoyance, or add your off the wall topics ..we are here to just listen, participate or to help if you want it.

We aren't here to solve world problems but you never know, we just may stumble onto something !

Please be nice and respectful.

Do not come into this group with a hidden agenda because we will not tolerate bullies or posers.

Nothing political ... it never ends well.

There is a wonderful group already established where you are welcome to share any and all of your political cartoons or complaints and everyone is welcome to join God, Guns, and Constitution which is located at this link -

Thanks for understanding !

The Importance Of The Electoral College. The Founders Knew What They Were Doing.

The founders of our country created a structure called the "Electoral College" as a control system and to ensure the individual states were fairly represented. Otherwise one or two densely populated areas would speak for the whole of the nation. It was not created as a device to favor Democrats, Republicans, Whigs, Tories or any other political affiliation. It was created as a system of "checks and balances" to guard against any small vocal area, with a specific agenda, speaking for the whole of the nation.

The following list of statistics should put an end to the argument as to why the Electoral College makes sense.

There are 3,141 counties in the United States.

Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.

There are 62 counties in New York State.

Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16.

Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.

In the 5 counties that encompass NYC (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes than Trump.

In other words, these Five (5) counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote for the entire country !

These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.

When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome of a national election.

Large, densely populated cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.) do not and should not speak for the rest of our country...and somehow the geniuses who founded our country understood this and created a system to avoid that circumstance.

And now you understand the supreme importance of the Electoral College.

I was annoyed, darn it!

I joined this discussion because I had two things I'm annoyed about and I needed to get them off my chest. I was right ready to go! Yes sir!

Then I read the first five posts. "Cackle Maniacally!", "Pothead!", "Starter Fluid!" I started laughing; was completely undone. Enchanted!

NOW. About one of my annoyances. Is there any way to turn off that annoying video that follows you down the page on the right hand side, giving you advice you never asked for and already knew anyway? I didn't mind a review the first time or two but working on the second dozen viewings it gets rancid.

Good Morning - It's Tuesday !

We are finally warming up here. We will see 21 today - time to bring out the flip flops !

We still have a lot of snow on the ground but it will be gone by the weekend as the temps will be into the 40's in the next couple of days.

Next issue will be flooding .. it's always something !

Have a great Tuesday everyone :)
