    I doubt you will.  I think some of this comes from a couple of studies that were reported in the last 4 or 5 years.
    First, a survey of journalists conducted by the Indiana University.  In the most recent survey, conducted in 2013, 7.1% percent of respondents identified as Republican; compared with 28.1% that identified as Democrat.  Both were the lowest percentages reported in the 5 surveys that had been conducted.  Slightly more than half (50.2%) identified as independent and 14.6% as other; both the highest of the 5 surveys.
    Just 7 percent of journalists are Republicans. That’s far fewer than even a decade ago
    Another survey, Faculty Voter Registration in Economics, History, Journalism, Law, and Psychology published in Econ Journal Watch investigated the voter registration of faculty in the Economics, History, Journalism/Communications, Law, and Psychology departments at 40 universities.  The abstract states that 7243 individuals were investigated, with party registration found for 3577 (3623 Democratic and 314 Repbulican).  The results showed an overall Democratic:Republican faculty registration of 11.5:1.

    Was that necessary?  Why be the instigator?  Those of us on the sidelines are really tired of you two and you're back and forth, and that's just what we see for things are deleted by admins.  😂.  Take the high road for a change.  You can only change yourself.
    Seriously.

    There are two issues here.  First, the content of the bill that was signed into law, and second, Mr. Northam’s comments.
    Regarding the content of the bill.  Yes, it would allow late-term abortion in instances in which the life or health of the mother was in danger; to include after the onset of labor prior to delivery of the fetus.  While I would hope that after carrying the pregnancy to term the expectant mother would opt for cesarean delivery, this decision is neither mine, nor yours to make. 
    As for Mr. Northam’s comments.  It seems to me that you, and many that oppose abortion, are taking his comments out of context.  None of the video that I have been able to find includes the question that he was asked, and all begin with his response.  And while Mr. Northam generally supported the bill, it appears that his comments were in response to a specific hypothetical question.  Gov.

    I think our country is harmed by daily lies, insults, racism, and constant confusion.
    He is purposefully divisive, insulting, and unkind. He does not respect the humanity of most people.

    I've seen the figures on tax refunds being smaller.  People look at this one thing and get upset.   What we have to do is stop to think how much more we got each paycheck and see if we're ahead and getting it each paycheck instead of the end of the year.  Which is the wise thing to do instead of letting the government have it and depending on a refund.
    But at the end of the day this one thing is politically damaging, whether or not it should be.
    My refund shrunk as well and I was a bit disappointed.
    Unfortunately since being paid hourly my pay varies from week to week, I can't tell what my tax break actually equals out to, but I bet if I did the math and subtracted my refund this year vs. what it was in years gone by,  it wouldn't be all that much.   Not like the obvious millions and billions others are getting.
    I also read that car dealerships are worried that with smaller refunds their sales might be affected because traditionally refund time is a time that stimulates car sales.

    I've seen the wind turbine farms in my state as well. On the one hand, great, cut down on carbon-based energy. But they are such an eyesore-these beautiful, majestic, formerly unspoiled areas are now desecrated in my opinion. It's like putting graffiti on the Statue of David or putting a mustache on The Mona Lisa.
    Maybe we have no choice, but it all makes me sad.
