nah luv you guys.... your redder compatriots wtf?
Ours is Gay Kimball Library Troy NH – Working hard to make your life better! , it was founded 10 years after the town. Not the largest (2.5 floors) but pretty good when your population is 2,000. Not to mention things like the ability to get things from various other libraries.
In college though ..... wow! Have you BEEN in the UNH-Durham library?
The pics I am seeing online of the main library do not give a good sense of scale. Especially since in is built on a hill so part of it you would not see from a head-on view from the front. So look for a variety of pics, especially ones that have something that gives a sense of proportion and/or are from an angle.I haven't but if I ever get back that way now I want to visit!
I will have to look them up online and see what they might have virtually.
Of course. He's gotten away with everything his entire life and one method of doing that has been lawsuits. He really, really doesn't want us to follow the money.President Trump sued his own accounting firm and the Democratic chairman of the House Oversight Committee at the same time on Monday — trying an unusual tactic to stop the firm from giving the committee details about Trump’s past financial dealings
"Only high crimes and misdemeanors can lead to impeachment," Mr Trump tweeted on Monday morning. "There were no crimes by me (No Collusion, No Obstruction), so you can’t impeach. "It was the Democrats that committed the crimes, not your Republican President! Tables are finally turning on the Witch Hunt!"
I would like to think that, if Trump loses the next election and refuses to step down, there would be a massive public outcry so large even die-hard Republicans can't ignore it.I'd go a little further to say that for some time I've been wondering if we will even have anything remotely close to a free and fair election this time. We certainly aren't doing a damn thing to protect our systems and lots of foreign actors with an investment in orange are gearing up for it. I'm not sure anything short of massive, comprehensive protests across the country could help now, and Americans are content to just be outraged on Twitter. Going out is just too much work for most after the last two exhausting years.
As to Trump, if things don't go his way and he /does/lose, he will claim "rigged" elections and do everything he can to stay in there. It will cause another constitutional crisis, but the thing is - by now he has so many Republicans under his thumb that they will likely be willing to just allow him to kill our democracy if it means they can maintain power, give everyone guns and increase the wealth gap to the point where all the futuristic urban distopia stories come true.
Bill Maher's been saying this for a long time.
Assuming he loses (and I think that's a rather big assumption) - he is looking at almost immediate indictments on multiple fronts. I personally think there is no limit to what he would do to avoid facing the consequences of his own actions.I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Trump might fluster and bluster all November and December about election fraud and investigations if he loses but in January he'll just leave without incident. He doesn't actually want to be president - he never did.
I think the much larger problem is that we won't even face this possibility due to Russian assistance - possible hacking, voter disenfrancisement and election fraud.I don't think we have to worry about Trump "not stepping down". On Inauguration Day once the new person is sworn in he's simply not the president anymore. He can't stop it from happening because he doesn't have to authorize it; the Inauguration just happens automatically. It doesn't matter where he is, or what he thinks about it. He can barricade himself in the Oval Office and he still won't be the president anymore, he'll just be some shmuck and then the Secret Service can carry him out.

Assuming he does lose the election , (oh please, oh please!), and he does refuse to vacate the premises, I really hope and believe that the Secret Service will remember their oath to the Constitution, and toss that orange tinted turd into the Washington Monument Reflecting PoolI don't think we have to worry about Trump "not stepping down".
