    one back". Intentionally, so that they don't get ahead of themselves. Avoids backlash/setbacks. To do that takes some damn fine planning.

    There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

      overjoyed by the results of the last election, they overreached in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana, MN., Tx. and Florida with their entire legislative wish list.

      They believed they were close to total control and have not ceased or eased their pursuits since.  Problem is everyone is catching on finally and they made their moves too quick and openly.  Poor planning brought on by a false sense of victory at hand.  This is going to cost them.
