Re: The Electoral College Was Designed To Prevent Trump. You Can Make This Happen.

I think the most troubling is how some electoral colleges are forced to vote for the state's choice. For example if the electoral college is a red state that favors Trump, it is expected to vote for Trump. And visa versa-making it unfair for individual voting. Although Obama recommended Clinton concede early when it was clear Trump was winning, that move was extremely pre-mature as we see now. It is my hope that Clinton readdresses the vote count in those rust states that appears to be a...

First of all, if Ms. Warner were a Rastafarian her hairstyle of dreadlocks would be part of their religious guidelines and tenents. Therefore, Six Flags would be discriminating based on religion and could be SUED. I'm hoping that they are sued. Dreadlocs and sister locs are not usually dirty or extreme.
