  1. How come New Zealand can elect a woman to power and America can’t?

    The choose electable women to stand for a start.

    As an aside, why ‘America’? What ‘United States of America’?

    More accurately it is federal states of about half of North America.

      Great comment on Stuff by ‘Unsinkable III’ –

      “You lost because you and Trump represent the two worst presidential candidates in US history. Your baggage, corruption and history lost you the election, not your gender. Loosing to Trump is simply a reflection of how bad you were. [are?]

      But stay in denial …. and don’t let the facts interfere with your fantasy story and ability to sell books and tickets to the gullible attending your shows.”

            Yeah, I think that’s a pretty cogent analysis of the relevant people and facts.
