And this is why the Electoral College was created

As we noted in this space earlier, while Clinton's overall margin looks large and impressive, it is due to Clinton's huge margin of victory in one state — California — where she got a whopping 4.3 million more votes than Trump.

California is the only state, in fact, where Clinton's margin of victory was bigger than President Obama's in 2012 — 61.5% vs. Obama's 60%.

But California is the exception that proves the true genius of the Electoral College — which was designed to prevent regional candidates from dominating national elections.

All this time, I've been in the wrong business.
This tax filing discloses that in 2015, Winona LaDuke was paid compensation of $127,000, while stating that she worked an average of 20 hours a week for the nonprofit organization. Nice work if you can get it! But that rather plush income apparently is not enough for Ms. LaDuke. The form also discloses that Honor the Earth has loaned her $4,325. The reason? “$ shortage.” Honor the Earth does not seem to be well-managed financially.

This kind of thing is why the title 'medical ethicist' doesn't exactly thrill people.
Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending their lives is no different to abortion, a group of medical ethicists linked to Oxford University has argued.
Article's a few years old, but the attitude hasn't changed.

Some stuff on the 21 foot rule
