The Midterm Elections: Far From Settled Results This Early!

After the Democratic Party started to panic over predictions of the likelihood of a debacle this coming November, it became clear that it is far from certain that the Senate will be lost, although one can certainly concede the loss of seats, and the fact that the change in House seats might be a few, but not a dramatic difference! In fact, with the reality of total gridlock in the House, and the worst legislative record under Speaker John Boehner in modern history, the Democrats might gain a few seats, although not likely to have a majority, as now projected.

The Republican Party needs to gain 6 seats in the Senate to have control, and while there are many Democratic seats up, and a lot of Democrats are retiring, that is still not a sign of GOP success, as they are very good at self destruction, and are on that road again.

The Tea Party Movement is certain to cause the loss of some traditional conservatives in the Senate, and to increase the chances of defeating a few GOP senators, to overcome the fact that there are more Democratic seats in contention.

And again, even if both houses are Republican, by 2016, the Senate is sure to be won back, and the House might go Democratic with a strong Presidential candidate heading the ticket, such as Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden!

The long term prognosis for the Republican Party is gloomy, while the long term prognosis for the Democrats is excellent!

    I’m sorry Professor for being off topic, but this is “Stupid on Steroids”! I have to pass this on.

    Oklahoma City, Ok — Oklahoma state legislature narrowly passed a law on March 31, 2014, redefining pi, a mathematical constant currently being used in the secular industry. The bill to change the value of pi to exactly “three” (3) was introduced without fanfare by Daryl H Dolus (R, Slick), and rapidly gained support after a letter-writing campaign by members of the Christians for Biblical Science, a traditional Christian values group. Governor Mary Fallin was quoted as saying that she will sign it into law on Wednesday.

    Pi is a name given to the mathematical ratio of the “Circumference of a Circle” to the “Diameter”.

    That means, for any circle, you can divide the circumference (the distance around the circle) by the diameter and always get exactly the same number. Also if you take the diameter X Pi is how you calculate the circumference.

    So how can any educated person think this can be reduced to just the number “3”? Much less make that a law?

    Maybe Know Nothing Davy would like to comment on this.

    Unbelievable is my shocked reaction, Engineer. The Know Nothings have taken over, and will bring the country to its knees!

    You do know that April Fool’s Day was last week? That Oklahoma passes pi law has been going around for years and, as far as I know, it is still just that. And the fact that it “passed” on March 31st is ripe fodder for an April Fools joke the next day.

    I have searched every reputable news source on the web and cannot find any reference to a law passing in Oklahoma.
    What news source did you get that from, EOK?
