rk - if you really want more "black/brown and female" support for the President, you should NOT have elected a racist misogynist.

Outwardly reasonable...BUT...your statement presumes the elections were representative of the general population in the district.  That's unwarranted. 

 

Your statement presumes each of those voters were fully and accurately informed, had a complete and accurate understanding of what a candidate stood for, understood the issues and voted knowledgeably.  That's really unwarranted...you know that.   

 

Your statement presumes, with clear evidence to tha contrary, that gerrymandering does not and did not exist in any of the election districts in question....that's BS.  Are both democrats and republicans guilty...yes.  Equally...no.  IF you were intellectually honest about all this instead of interminably grinding you ideological axe, you might accomplish something of worth to the American People.  I guess that would make you a Patriot.  

 

You just said the entire Republican electorate may be plagued with misogyny based on the frequency distribution in the picture AND in the Republican congressional contingent....OR you just said that there aren't enough  qualified and competent women to fill those positions within the Republican Party....There's an approximately 50/50 split-men/women in the general population. That's not what exists.  Yes?

 

What alternative method would you propose, some sort of a bureaucratically administers quote system for election?

 

There may be no solution short of a cultural restructuring, which really won't happen IF theologically driven.  You profess conservatism.  What you do does not fit what Webster says that is. 

 

As to who is in the picture - they are the people who supported the legislation. Seems like a reasonable way to develop the guest list for the celebration of it's signing.

 

Granted...so what?  Within the incomplete representation shown, the number of 'women' was incredibly short of the 50/50 split I suggested would represent equality.  The argument you advance is specious....irrelevant too.

 

Shall we also have a "picture quota" system? I have a better idea - more black, brown, and female support for the President.

 

Well...sure, that is what you would suggest as that is what you'd like to have exist.  Understandable.  Wishful thinking, though.

 

And "token" - that assumes racism or sexism as opposed to the reality of "supporters regardless of gender or race".

 

Yes...it is a valid point, even though you abuse it.  People should not presume another person's worth based on race, color, creed, gender or sexual orientation... none of which should diminish their humanity.  No matter who and what they are, they are human beings.   IF any of their physical characteristics become a criteria for judgement or choice, there had best be a compelling reason that meets with what our Constitution says.  You OK with that?

Trump with all the White Men a Few Woman & Maybe 1 or 2 Token Black or Brown People Celebrating the House Passage of Trumpcare

Trump Celebration.png

 Here are the striking numbers:

 

There are 238 members of the House Republican conference, and just 21 of them are women (that's less than 9%).

 

As for Democrats in the House, 62 of the 193 members are women (that's 32%). 

 

BTW - Trumpcare considers Pregnancy - Only Part of the "Premium Coverage" Healthcare Package

 

Trumpcare also gives the States the Right to Determine if Injuries caused by Rape or Domestic Violence are Pre-existing Conditions and Not Covered unless you're in the - High Risk Pool - and thats only if the individual State hasn't decided to - opt-out of High Risk Pools altogether

 

That's Why Only 9% Woman in the GOP's All White Mens Club is a Issue
