Democracy - Does it have a chance?

Sam Seder - Does he have a chance?

As I'm sure you're probably aware by now, it's not too long before the 2020 U.S. Presidential election. As you're also probably aware, the big names are all throwing their hat into the ring to become the nominee of the Democratic Party. So far we've had Sanders, O'Rourke, Harris, Booker, Warren and ...

Re: Where is my cat?

The courts are already ruling against it. A judge just issued a stay, prohibiting deportation. http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/28/politics/2-iraqis-file-lawsuit-after-being-detained-in-ny-due-to-travel-ban/ Basically what I said would happen.
