Racially and ethnically motivated terrorism rose alarmingly in 2018: U.S. State Department

01 November 2019 - 08:56 PM

NC-9 Special ("Redo") election

14 August 2019 - 08:29 PM

Remember all the shenanigans involving absentee ballots in the North Carolina 9th district last year?

Well, they're having the special election that resulted from all this fallout in about 3 weeks (Sept. 10).

Not a lot of polling is available, but one story on The Hill indicated a very competitive race.

What might be going on with the latest CA earthquakes

This latest series of earthquakes isn't actually on the San Andreas fault--they're just north of where it takes an abrupt job to the west north of Los Angeles.

Maybe, just maybe, the tectonic boundary is transitioning east of the Sierras.

Maybe PNWGuy can give a little more backstory, as I'm a recent transplant to a neighboring state.

In a nutshell, Oregon wanted to institute a cap and trade law on fossil fuels. The Republican contingent couldn't stop the vote, so they fled the state, and apparently have called in right wing militias to threaten violence, which has caused the State Capitol to shut down this weekend.
