Courts Throwing Out Gerrymandered Congressional Districts That Created GOP Majority

Federal courts have begun throwing out gerrymandered congressional districts that have given Republicans control of the House and Senate.

“On Friday, a federal court ordered Wisconsin legislatures to redraw their state House legislative districts after finding in November the districts were unconstitutionally partisan. The order will essentially require lawmakers to redraw state Senate maps as well.

The November decision was the first time this decade that a court has thrown out legislative maps because they favored voters of one party over another. Subsequently, this will be the first time in a decade lawmakers will have to redraw maps specifically to make them more fair for both parties.” [READ MORE]

    Didn’t Arizona lose a gerrymandering suit a couple of years ago? I recall NC also losing one last year. I also seem to recall something about PA as well.

      Hey DB, How great is this ban on illegals and towel heads? I thought I would liven up this awful blog of Ollie’s. What a joke, I leave with Dennis and now there is no action. Classic liberal rag.

      • dbtheonly

        Fine so far, given that there have been 3 different explanations on who is and is not covered. Can we say they rushed the beta version?

        Also note none of the towel heads in countries where Trumpkins’ seeks to do business is affected. Profits before politics don’t you know.

        Did see where you all got into a pissing contest a bit ago. Never saw them as a good use of my time.

        Today, you’ve got the stock market’s reaction to the ban. My retirement is several thousand lighter than it was this morning.

        One of these days we need to discuss the meaninglessness of labels like liberal and conservative.

        • FrancesPoo

          We shall see soon. Hopefully Trump shuts down these protests by giving cops the authority to arrest all disobedient protestors which would be all of them.

          Towel heads are towel heads. Why do you want these low life scum bags living in your neighborhood. Is it all about the last sentence you write about. Is it because liberals support social nonsense? Such as giving a towel head a home?

          Let me tell you something- Frank Cuffman and Merl Allen are thick as thieves and complete fucking assholes. Here’s hoping to stalker freak DA showing up here. He is a copy pasta stalker freak.

          I’m all ears and stock market needs about a 6000 point correction so buckle up. It’s gonna get ugly.

            So you wanna live in Nazi ‘Murica do you??

          • FrancesPoo

            No- I live in The United States of AMERICA. I see you are a kid with your awful grammar and use of “Mur” when it should say America. Get a life loser and enjoy your food stamps getting cut in half. Burger King is hiring.

          • dbtheonly

            Burger King is an Irish Company as I recall. You want to send those profits overseas?

          • FrancesPoo

            as long as we hire only Americans I am ok with it. Get rid of all this illegal filth walking in our great country.

          • FrancesPoo

            DB- can you track down those 2 douche bags Merl Allen who posts under “Frank Disalle” and Frank Cufffman “The Dark Avenger”? I’d love to fly out to Pirtersville to ask Cuffook a few questions.

          • 1739camilli

            I guess you’re too stupid to understand sarcastic slang (‘Murica). BTW, I have plenty of financial wherewithal (know the word?) and am an Army Vet – Korean period. The only loser here is you for voting for the bloviating buffoon who will destroy your life. “kid with awful grammar?” – that’s probably you.

          • FrancesPoo

            wow, did I strike a nerve Mr. Murica? You need to get a life dude; too much spongy for you? Seriously, I wanted to remind you of something- Billary Clinton will NOT be President

          • 1739camilli

            You’re right – HRC will not be president. It won’t be too long before Herr Trump implodes and leaves the WH. Hope you’re ready for christofascist ‘Murica.

          • FrancesPoo

            Hey camiltoe. Just thought I would share with you that there was a nomination tonight and WE won again. Boo Yah douche bag

          • Juicyfruit

            Camel toe guess what? Eat shit we won again

          • 1739camilli

            Since your use of language is at 5th grade level, I’ll sign off by telling your to GO FUCK YOURSELF!

          • Juicyfruit

            Where is cuffmann

          • dbtheonly

            I think they’re more looking at EngSoc, but I’ll go with whatever you decide.

          • dbtheonly

            “It’s gonna get ugly.”

            See, we agree already.

            What is a “liberal”? What is a “conservative”? Isn’t really a matter of perspective? I appear liberal to you, but I’ve been to “liberal sites” where I’m accused of being conservative. Which is it? It’s the same me. Hint: both doesn’t advance the argument.

            Next, in the past primary season, Congressional Republican Candidate A sent out a mailer stating that CRC B was, “a Liberal”. No explanation. No support. As if hanging the label was sufficient and dispositive.

            Dispositive? The label’s meaningless. Except, maybe in a comparative use.

            And there’s Trump’s, and your, problem. There are about 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. The Iraqi who translated for the USA during the Bush II war is a Muslim. The members of the Pakistani Army are Muslims. The guys fleeing the Mullahs in Iran are Muslims. The guys plotting terrorist attacks on the USA right now are Muslims. Yet you make no distinction. The mere label is sufficient. Again.

            Terrorist Muslim countries are those that don’t have Trump business connections; according to the most recent iteration of the explanation of enforcement of the Trump Doctrine.

          • FrancesPoo

            Yo bro- I’m working off a phone here. Ask me a question in a couple sentences and not 4 paragraphs. Holy cow, make it happen DB. BTW- Donald John Trump is a genius and what a great fucking appointment to SCOTUS

          • dbtheonly

            Sorry.

            Unlike some, I can not explain ideas in 140 characters or less. Sad.

          • FrancesPoo

            Well, how about doing a little extra finger banging then?

      • Jamie Roko

        Why didn’t he put a Ban on Aghanistan or Saudia Arabia – where the 911 terrotists actually came from?? You’ve been duped again by the orange one.

        • FrancesPoo

          Jamie- are you seriously asking that question? They flew here from Saudi but towel heads none the less from Middle East. A bunch of disgusting scum bags. America will be safe again. If you don’t like it, move to Syria

          • Brian

            Perhaps it’s unavoidable and we shouldn’t begrudge the president the right to make some money through the presidency. Maybe Congress will use this drama as an diversion opportunity to eliminate medicare social security. Maybe that will free up capital so that the upper income can invest in economy. Happy Days are here again, right?

          • FrancesPoo

            Sounds like a pretty good idea. You must be a little jealous?

      • Virginia Liberal

        Just what we expect from racist, ignorant male bozo’s like you. You are the rag. what a face.

        • Dennis

          What is wrong with his face, Virginia?

          • dbtheonly

            Hi Dennis,

            Remember Frank Zappa’s question, “What’s the ugliest part of your body?”

          • Dennis

            The mind.

            I just was wondering what Virginia thought was ugly about that face.

          • dbtheonly

            The picture? He looks stoned. That count as ugly?

          • FrancesPoo

            Are you saying I’m ugly? Now now DB- where is your picture big boi? Are you chubby like me?

          • dbtheonly

            I value my privacy and so don’t use a picture, but if I were to use one, I’d steal the picture of Clark Gable, #64 on IMDB.com, and crop everyone else out.

          • FrancesPoo

            Who is Clark Gable? Just put up any picture. Use Richard Simmons and all the fags will gravitate to where you post.

          • FrancesPoo

            DB- Doesn’t that face make you horny? hahahaha, LOL

          • Juicyfruit

            Db get a grip and stare at my dick,,,, meow

        • FrancesPoo

          Do you like me? We could arrange a date considering you are an overweight, old, always wrong UGLY woman or are you a tranny?

    • Yeah, sitting here in NC, I’m confused by this “first time this decade” thing. Either they mean in Wisconsin specifically or there’s some tiny nuance they’re not making clear.

      (Possible it has to do with scope? Here in NC, the order was only to redraw certain districts, though enough that it means probably a full re-draw anyway.)

      • FrancesPoo

        Hey Leah, how are you? Just wanted to ask you a couple questions or 1 specifically. Did you know that Billary Clinton will NOT be President?

      • Juicyfruit

        Hey Leah? uGLY!

  • Scopedog

    So…Wisconsin, eh?

    If I didn’t know better, sounds like that court was saying:

    • FrancesPoo

      You in the mood doggie style?

  • Virginia Liberal

    This is the best news I’ve heard in a while. It’s about time that our courts stepped in to level the playing field in this country. Republicans have been doing this for so long and know full well what they have been doing. There have been plenty of times in the life of the Republican Party where they have completely fooled the public as to their value in society, when most people find out exactly what they are about. The best example was when the country turned against them in the early 1930’s when they grabbed onto the religious pretense they picked up to cloak their sins. The next log they crabbed onto was the abortion issue. They play these games to make themselves look important and righteous when all along they could careless about the people that are in their base. That time is coming up again quickly. Trump will kill most of the Republican Party and then the Dem’s will be on top again to secure the interests of the American people instead of the grossly rich.

  • You can always tell if a person is a
    right-wing conservative by the way they disrespect those they make comments to.

    • FrancesPoo

      On the flip side you can tell who is a democrat by their stupid fucking responses. Oh- you are an ugly fucker you are

    Where is DB???

    • FrancesPoo

      Juicy. The guy below Gary Downing is a jack ass.
