Not to get too far off the pressing topic of Justice Scalia, but here is a depressing but possibly pertinent piece which offers, among other things:

Quote:
In the previous Gilded Age, religion and ethnicity served as the great disuniters of the working class. In his 2010 book Why Is There No Labor Party in the United States?, the sociologist Robin Archer writes that labor leaders, even in their heyday, “feared that if workers were forced to choose between union solidarity and their partisan and religious loyalties, they would choose the latter, and the unions themselves would be destroyed.” Trump’s occasional nods to economic populism no doubt appeal to some union members, but so too, one suspects, does his scapegoating of Muslims and immigrants.
Quote:
When 1960s-style identity politics supplanted the New Deal’s class-based appeal among liberals, it was both a return to normalcy and an invitation to the divide-and-conquer strategy that worked so well for the plutocracy in the past. Today’s intra-progressive fights over the centrality of Black Lives Matter, the significance of a female president, and the online manners of “Bernie bros” and their detractors demonstrate just a few of the perils of allowing these divisions to fester at a time when the well-being of everyone but the extremely wealthy is under siege.

Let us offer to Scalia in death the compassion and dignity he sought to deny to others when he was alive.

I mean that.

I will say something nice about him.

Thank you, Justice Scalia, for entering "jiggery pokery" into modern terminology. That's a pretty great phrase.

That's all I got. I cannot respect the man, who clearly had no respect for many people I hold dear.

Meanwhile at the Debate. Trump is scorching W and Jeb on Iraq War, not taking out Bin Laden before 9/11 when warned 'The House of Bush' taking it on the chin.

Is W running again? I didn't even realize there was a debate tonight. I guess i have spent too much time rolling around in my money, hookers, and blow to keep up with these things.

Jeb appears to be the only one who wants to defend the constitution when it's not politically advantageous to him, considering he's the only one who said Obama has every right to nominate a new Justice.

It's abundantly obvious to me that the two remaining governors are the only reasonable human beings left, and arguably have been throughout the whole race.

It's only a matter of time before these votes start to consolidate. I am willing to bet that even though trump leads the polls, "anybody but trump" is probably ahead of him.

The momentum needs to be behind "anybody but Trump or Cruz".

True, but sadly that's not the way it is right now. Which is why, even though Rubio blows, the Ted vs. Marco chewing is very positive.

Carson doesn't even get a mention. For a reason.

But I think you're missing the fact that who are for Kasich/Bush are the same party of people who are for Rubio, in some sense (minor differences aside). Whereas the Trump/Cruz/Carson camp is the more extreme side.

Basically, by establishing that those two have no chance, Rubio has no chance. I don't think we've gotten that far, yet.

If you are correct the
Trump Cruz Carson side has this on a lock, they have been polling at 60-70 %

Well, I would say in *actual* results thus far, it's 50-60%. You'll notice that as each contest comes up, you see the likes of Kasich, Bush, and Rubio moving up versus their original projections from polls.

I'd say there's certainly a favoring/majority saying "out with the establishment." But I don't think it's quite enough to draw a conclusion.

The national mood is anti-establishment, that is why Bernie is up and Hillary is down,
GOP establishment candidates began up and went down, outsiders have come up
why will this change?? wishful thinking?

it's weird to say that I hate establishment as I am in college and my father works for pharmaceuticals, but i will say this; I'd like Bernie or other radically different candidate (not Donald, though) to be POTUS because it feels wrong not to do anything with current systems with decent amount of problems; we have to do something that may/may not lead to the solution to various problems.

Trump will even make America great for you.
Kind of guy he is.
And with his wife as First Lady I can finally be proud of my country again.
