    I am so glad to see some of the old posters come back. While I have continued to watch, and like, Rebecca’s video posts, I have missed the old posters. But now you all are back. Happy days are here again! 🙂

    Unfortunately, dumping Trump from the California ballot would likely have no effect on the Electoral College. Trump is not going to win California in any way, shape, or form.

    • I totally agree but it sends a message that we demand transparency and if more states follow it can make a difference, if not with Trump then with future candidates.

    Great news. While I love Rebecca’s video posts, I have missed the other writers on Skepchick.

    So, Mr. Congresscritter, answer me this…Rocks have been falling into the sea for like forever. So why are we just now seeing this sea level rise?

    • Do you think we could convince him that the cubic kilometers of ice falling off Antarctica and Greenland are functionally equivalent to bloody big rocks?

    Poor kids who do everything right don’t do better than rich kids who do everything wrong

    But, but, but…

    If we are taking the compliment of “Joe without money”, wouldn’t that be “Not Joe with money”? So someone who is not Joe gets the cash.

    Also, if setting the first dial to 4 makes the stick plate stick, and you leave the dial at 4, wouldn’t the stick plate stick no matter what you set the second dial at?

    So much stupid.

    • No. Because: Magic.

      Also, wouldn’t that be the contrapositive? (Okay, I know there’s no conditional in “Joe without money”, except the implied conditional “If reality exists …”, but if anyone makes that argument, my response is “You are erroneously applying logic to the universe in which this machine works.”)
