To be clear that's talking about the amount of participation per person, not the number of people who are active. There's still a LOT more people who identify as religious and politically conservative. It's just that those who are religious and liberal are more likely to be more active in politics.
"You’ve heard of De La Salle, right?” the Michigan Advance quoted Lucido as asking reporter Allison Donahue, who is 22.
When Donahue said she had not, Lucido said: “It’s an all-boys school,” adding: “You should hang around — you could have a lot of fun with these boys, or they could have a lot of fun with you.”
Lucido later offered a non-apology. Saying it was a "misunderstanding" and apologizing for offending the reporter. He denied he meant anything sexual. Golly, I'm so shocked that a misogynist refused to own up to his shit....
Even the school managed to make an actual apology:
"Sen. Peter J. Lucido, of Shelby Township, serves the people of Michigan's 8th Senate District and is the Senate Majority Whip. Sen. Lucido serves as chairman of the Senate Judiciary and Public Safety, Advice and Consent, and JCAR committees, and is a member of the Senate Elections and Oversight committees."
I realize the phrase has a different meaning when applied to law and government, but still... ironic.
Putin... kind of has to become President for life? He was counting on the billions he stole from Russia to vanish, but they're being held up by the US and that's something Trump can't do for him. His popularity has been waning for years and he has few really close allies anymore. So it was ether this or get frozen out of control.
Of course, now someone's going to have to kill him. And likely will; he ain't exactly doing much but stirring passions for Russia.
Putin's kept himself in phenomenal shape, but he's quickly reaching the point where there is nothing he can do to maintain the kind of machismo that allows him to do what he does. He's 67. He has no heir apparent except his daughter and clearly he's not turning it over to her. His inner circle is a group of vultures waiting for him to die so they can carve up the country.
Things are going to get interesting real fast if Putin feels like he needs to do this.
