And an oligarchy is. . . .

Lawyerliz said...

The founders sort of imagined the upper chamber as an oligararchy,m but not the lowet house too.

AND they never thought that gerrymandering would be the death of the republicm

I think the Founders thought of the Upper House as more a body of deliberation and moderation of Federalism. Hasn't worked out that way in large part because the members started getting directly elected. Not that the previous ways were without deep faults.

Would you grill heretics?

Rob Dawg said...

Okay. What pictures of the vacation do you want to see? Real boring stuff. A bio-luminescent scorpion, a petrified dragonfly, ice water runoff, old trains, lots of plant close-ups, Zion/Bryce/Arches.

Gerrymandering seems such an inferior way to go to political hell.

Lawyerliz said...

All of them. Fire away.

I'd question them gently and let them go with an apology so profound it bordered on an endorsement. [Yes, I know that is evil...]

IMO the cure for Gerrymandering is worse than the disease.

a lot to be said for a benevolent dictatorship..

So you are coming around to the concept of Dawgifornia.

You know by now that I don't 'see' what others think they see. Indeed, Mrs Dawg told me that my pictures of the UNLV xeriscape garden were far more beautiful than the garden appeared in person.

yes..I expect Mrs Dawg to be an excellent head of state.. ;<)

Lawyerliz said...

And Mr. DAWG as first gentleman

Lawyerliz said...

I wonder if he likes Tuxedos?

Rob Dawg said...

I -own- a tuxedo. Killed me to have to rent tails for a recent event. See. Low class.

Let them eat tomatoes!!

Rob Dawg said...

Trust me. You are going to wish you never heard of tomatoes in a few weeks. My neighbors are going to put out a reward for the Salsa Bandit leaving quarts on their doorstep.

Damn! I forgot to say; "new post."
