#1 Another Donk 'we don't like the Constitution' as written -

The Congress shall have Power To… exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such Dis­trict (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the Acceptance of Con­gress, become the Seat of the Gov­ernment of the United States… (The U.S. Constitution, Article I, Section 8, Clause 17)

It can't be a state without an amendment. However, we apparently don't need an Article V change with our rulers SCOTUS.

#2 It's not likely that a Constitutional Amendment would pass muster.

After watching the riots in D.C., the district government is not ready for statehood. They cannot even protect the District and its inhabitants and its property from mob violence.

#3 And Frederick Douglass would be appalled at its current condition.

#5 Why not carve out the Federal District and give back the rest to Maryland? That should stop the residents of DC from bitching about "no taxation without representation".

#6 Maybe I've seen The Hanger Games, but my first thought was Capital District.

The concept of a neutral, whatever it is in practice *Marion Barry Cough*, Round Table Gathering is correct.

An En Passant move.

#8 Notice how the Dems "LEAD" the house but the 'Pubs "RULE" the Senate.

No bias there nope, no siree Bob.

Disgusting is too mile a word.

#9 40 years of this agitation, aggression, and idiocy "Lead" by Pelosi and the sub human democrats.

#11 More kabuki for the rubes. It’ll never even get on the docket in the senate, and if by some chance the Democrats win both houses of Congress and the White House, they wouldn’t do anything about it anyway.

#12 Just call D.C. "[egesta] hole". Anybody have a Ouija board to speak with Marion Barry?
