Hmm... I'm sure it never occurred to them to screen the refugees. Maybe you could suggest that to them.
^^ didn't click your blog link. If there is a reputable source, you should link to it. I googled and found one study showed 51% of immigrant families on some sort of welfare, and 30% of 'native-born' families. Two comments:
The 'welfare' consisted of various things including school lunches. I used to live in a town where the percentage of kids who would qualify for school lunches was so high that they just gave free lunch to 100% of the kids rather than messing with screening and documenting and issuing cards. So being on school lunches is both a trivial thing to include, and for some kids may indicate nothing more than that immigrants are more likely to live in low-income neighborhoods. Which leads me to my second comment:
Clearly we should pay our immigrants better wages, as employees in sweat shops, farming, yard work, and household help, etc. are often exploited.

^ oh yea immigrants come here for the free school lunches hahahahhh good one pieps
i agree with you immigrants should be paid more for the work they do but whos gonna pay them? rich people? the only reason illegal immigrants are allowed in this country is because they can be taken advantage of. if you prevent that from happening there will be no need to allow them in the country.
than who will get all that free board of education lunch

The simple explanation of Putin's motives is he is teaming up with Iran and the Iraqi Shia to reestablish Russian influence in the Middle East. It's interesting to read about Putin's problems. Much of the news coverage recently has focused on how weak and outmaneuvered the Obama administration has looked in Syria.

This really surprises me. If there's one thing that largely characterizes the Bush familia, it's that silence is golden. When it comes to friends/associates and the like, no backbiting, no gossiping, etc. It was kind of surprising to hear Dubya openly criticize Ted Cruz, and this is kind of a shock too. Things are really coming off the rails for them.
Not complaining mind you, just making a point.

When someone reaches their 90's, nothing that comes out of their mouth is a surprise. Rumsfeld responded to the effect the elder Bush is getting up there in years. Let's give the sweet guy in the Astros shirt a pass.

A modest proposal: As we have repeatedly seen, and not just in this primary season, the "11th Commandent" that has often been ascribed to Ronald Reagan "Republicans shall not speak ill of other Republicans?" Please.
I think that instead the 11th Commandment for Republicans should now be As evidenced by last night's debate, that is pretty much the only thing Republicans can universally agree on.

Christie made a name for himself as the Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer for NJ. He is widely considered to have been an effective, honest US Attorney. This appealed to voters in possibly the most politically corrupt state in the Union. It's not beyond anyone how he got elected. His star has faded since becoming the state's governor. His demeanor, national political ambition, and the highway traffic scandal have brought him down.

Just to repeat:
Just so you know... they think it's just fine for people on a terrorist watchlist to buy guns. Many guns. Semi-automatics. Heaps of guns. No-fly list? No problem.

I made an interesting trip to Paris, Kentucky, last month with a friend.
It was at a private property, where hundreds of 2nd Amendment supporters appeared, armed to the teeth.
Vendors sold all kinds of weapons and ammunition.
A range allowed visitors to fire machine guns.
A small crowd in the morning became a standing room only event by the evening's final event, huge explosions of 55 gallon barrels of fuel.
My friend stayed, standing among the crowd, to enjoy the show.
I retired to the parking lot, a mile away, sitting in the cab of my truck, feeling the vibrations of the explosions rock the truck back and forth.
No one will ever convince those folks to surrender their firearms to the government.
They love their country, yet, they do not trust their government.

Prohibit Congress from regulating activity that occurs wholly within one State.
So, slavery would be okay? Also, I'm not sure that you can write such a law that would be enforceable. Why? Because you can argue that every activity occurs wholly within one state, then turn around and argue that no activity occurs wholly within on state. Sure, an individual or company may be acting within one state, but the activity itself?
Require Congress to balance its budget.
That should prove helpful the next time we get involved in a major war.
Prohibit administrative agencies — and the unelected bureaucrats that staff them — from creating federal law.
They don't create federal law now. What they do is try to turn the broad terms enacted by Congress into working measures. If Abbott really thinks Congressmen will take the time to do that themselves then he's even more of an idiot than I thought him when I lived in Texas.
Prohibit administrative agencies — and the unelected bureaucrats that staff them — from preempting state law.
Federal law already preempts state law, so any quarrel will end up exactly where it does today - in court. In other words, this amount to nothing more than posturing. Imagine that.
Allow a two-thirds majority of the States to override a U.S. Supreme Court decision.
Since the only way this will be considered legal by the federal government is if the Supreme Court gives it the okay, guess what - more posturing. Oh, and Abbott, some descendants of slaves would like a word.
Require a seven-justice super-majority vote for U.S. Supreme Court decisions that invalidate a democratically enacted law.
We're a republic with representative government, not a democracy, so no federal law is democratically enacted. Furthermore, I have no doubt that when Abbott's 'super majority' rules against him he'll be back demanding unanimous decisions.
Nothing to see here, folks.
Restore the balance of power between the federal and state governments by limiting the former to the powers expressly delegated to it in the Constitution.
Yes, well, if the federal government is ignoring the Constitution now then only a fool thinks that it will stop ignoring the Constitution if you amend the Constitution.
Give state officials the power to sue in federal court when federal officials overstep their bounds.
Last time I checked, the Supreme Court is federal, so you already have a place to take your complaint.
Allow a two-thirds majority of the States to override a federal law or regulation.
That would create a situation where those states that approve of the federal law or regulation follow it and those who don't do not. That's not going to fly with the Supreme Court, even if the Congress would agree to have its authority usurped.

"I don’t want the American people to think that if they add a Republican president to a Republican Congress, that’s going to be a scary outcome. I want the American people to be comfortable with the fact that the Republican House and Senate is a responsible, right-of-center, governing majority" - Mitch McConnell, Jan 2015.


It says a lot about our current political situation that the best outcome for the Democrats is almost surely what the Republicans are threatening to do, which is to stonewall anyone Obama nominates, just because he’s Obama and they have a superstitious belief that everything he touches is unclean.
While it’s going to be a policy disaster to have a court that is set up to tie so many important decisions, having the Republicans loudly proclaim that they prioritize impotent insults aimed at the President over actual governance is a political boon of the sort that you can’t buy even with Citizens United money. Every day this drags out, the news will be a glorious reminder to the voters that the Republicans are such babies that they shouldn’t be trusted to run a small town McDonald’s franchise, much less be given so much power in the U.S. government.
All of which is simply fantastic for whatever Democrat wins the nomination, of course, but there will likely be down ticket effects, too. Every single Democrat running for Congress will be able to point to this story about Republican-caused gridlock and promise that electing them will help ungum the works. It’ll be a simple, effective pitch that happens to have the benefit of being completely true.

Mitch McConnell might have preferred to be a little more skillful and sly with the SCOTUS appointment -- maybe act like "sure, let's see who Obama nominates and go from there" and set him up for a back stab once Obama did name someone.

Harry Reid Trump.jpg
"Republicans spent the last eight years stoking fires of resentment and hatred building Trump piece by piece. Today, the Republican establishment acts like it’s surprised by Donald Trump and his victories around the country. They feign outrage that a demagogue spewing vile is somehow winning in a party that has spent years telling immigrants they’re not welcome in America. They act surprised Republican voters are flocking to a birther candidate, even as Republican congressional leaders continue to support a man who refuses to distance himself from the Ku Klux Klan. They express shock and outrage that Republican voters cheer Trump’s schoolyard taunts, even as they trounce the most common courtesies extended to every president — even as they deny a fair hearing to a president’s Supreme Court nominee for the first time in history."
"Republicans shouldn’t be surprised. They spent eight years laying the groundwork for the rise of Trump. It’s time for Republicans to stop the Frankenstein they created."

A big problem with the Reddest states is Brain Drain. People who are bright, talented, or don't fit in some way, (gay, overly artistic, etc) do not stay in their small towns. Whether they're going to college or just doing something else, when they turn 18, they are FUCKING GONE. Maybe they stay in the same state, -- in the largest nearby city -- or they travel to a mecca such as NYC, Boston, Miami, Washington DC, the Bay Area, etc.
So what happens in the communities they leave behind? They stay undiversified, stagnant, conservative. Without artistic and educational energy from 20 and 30somethings, a community can't move beyond the past. Likewise, if those people leave that means they're not running for local offices in those communities, leaving them overwhelmingly conservative.

It will be quite interesting to see what happens when the Republican party divides.
And divide it must, whether Trump wins or not, this is a marriage that simply can't last. It's not just that the establishment will never forgive Trump for this hostile takeover; it's not just that he's peeling back the curtain and showing all their magic tricks...
The biggest problem with a Donald Trumplican Party is that it is a movement that needs him in order to survive.
Democrats, lets be honest, do not have a wide range of iconic elected figures in their history. There's FDR of course. There's the Kennedys (ironically, Teddy moreso than either of his brothers). and then...well, Obama will probably become one, even as detractors focus on his many compromises. Otherwise, it gets spotty. LBJ gave us the Civil Rights of Act of 1964...and also the amplification of Vietnam and Richard Nixon. (and he bequeathed George W. Bush unto us.) George McGovern, Hubert Humphrey, Jimmy Carter, Walter Mondale...you get the point.
Like the original latchkey kids, liberals/left-leaners learned early on that we were going to have to fend for ourselves in this cold world. Our ideas, concepts and philosophies have to stand on their own. Leaders get assassinated, mired in scandal, and voted out of office. We have to be people-powered.
Republicans, on the other hand adore their icons. ("We're the Party of Lincoln!"). Reagan is no longer just a name; it's an adjective. He's the gold standard. Barry Goldwater is not far behind. Since Reagan, conservatives seem to be always seeking another who can spearhead a new era of conservative domination. They've gone from Oliver North and Newt Gingrich to The Bushes and Sarah Palin, all the way down to Ben Carson, Kim Davis and that Duck Dynasty guy. It has not worked out.
And now here comes Donald Trump. You don't have to anoint him the New Reagan: He brought his own oils, robes and crown!
But there's a huge problem here. It's not just that Trump is alienating Hispanics, Blacks and college-educated Americans. It's not just that he's butchering sacred cows in the GOP hierarchy.
The problem is that this is a cult of personality on steroids. One of Trump's most potent arguments against his primary opponents thus far has been simply "They're not me!"
No argument there. You have to look to southern politicians of the past (Huey Long for example) or to Europe (Silvio Berlusconi) to find someone with as outsized a personality as Trump. If Kanye West ever does run for president, he'll have some ground to make up in the Solipsism Sweepstakes.
But because Trump is so haltingly unique, so one of a kind, it's impossible for someone to come in and fill his shoes someday. Trumpism has a definite shelf-life. It needs Trump himself to perpetuate it.
Nowhere can this be seen better than in the aforementioned. Ronald Reagan, the man hailed as a demi-god by Republicans. Reagan tripled the deficit. Reagan increased the size of the federal government. Reagan gave amnesty to three million illegal immigrants. Reagan funneled illegal weapons to Iran. Oh and Reagan created the gasoline sales tax. In fact he raised taxes seven of his eight years in office. But what do people remember as the stab in the back to Conservative Orthodoxy? Bush 41 couldn't get away with raising taxes because he wasn't Ronald Reagan. Simple as that.
I've compared Trump to a pro wrestler; Those of you who know professional wrasslin, know that a wrestler's gimmick is all-important. If it doesn't work, the performer will have the stink of that failure clinging to him for a long time. Take the Undertaker as an example: no one but Mark Calloway could have made the gimmick work this well for this long. It could have been disastrous in the hands of another.
The Trump Gimmick works for Trump, anyone else trying it would become mincemeat at the hands of their opponents very quickly. Senate candidate Christine O'Donnell seemed like she might become Sarah Palin jr for a few weeks in 2010, but she failed utterly and, be honest, you've forgotten her completely. You have no idea who I'm talking about, do you? (Hint: "I'm not a Witch")
So it looks as though there will be a new party and the Republican Trumpism party. What forms each will take is anyone's guess. But they can't be the same thing.

^OK. I admit I haven't watched MSNBC as much as usual because
1) Donald Trump's face has kept me away from most news programming in general, except for the Sunday morning politics shows, which are enough for me.
2) MSNBC in particular -- well all of the news channels I guess -- in the perpetual primary cycle. On Monday it's "We're Getting Ready for the ____ Primary! This is the Big One!"; on Tuesday it's Wall to Wall Coverage of the Big Ass ________ Primary! Stay With Us All Night!" and then on Weds and Thurs it's "Well We Just Had The Yuge Ass ______ state Primary/Caucus! What Did It All Mean, Man?!?"
And because the primaries aren't going to end -- on either side apparently -- it's just this neverending repetitive slog. The primaries are usually done by this point, but now for whatever reason, everybody feels entitled to battle to the death in these things just to prove a point. Gosh, Hillary, I wonder where they got THAT idea from??

Mississippi and North Carolina steadily refuse to come anywhere near the 21st Century. Well maybe that's not fair to North Carolina: like Texas and Georgia, they are fairly progressive in the big cities, but those residents don't vote in nearly the same numbers as the hardcore conservatives in the 'burbs.

Read the article.
The story doesn't seem to merit coverage and break through the Trump/Cruz media circus being covered 24/7 by all the broadcast and cable "news" stations.
Yet, if Hillary becomes the Democratic nominee, I'm sure we will hear about Monica Lewinsky sucking Bill Clinton's dick -- Bill Clinton who isn't even a candidate -- until the cows come home
Remember, in right-wing, "Christian," God-fearin' America, Hillary Clinton gets zero credit for working things out with her husband and keeping her marriage and family intact.
(And, conservative "Christian" leaders trip all over themselves rushing to "forgive" Josh Duggar, et al)

^ Yeah I was stunned when Newt was actually successful with evangeicals during the last primaries despite his well known immorality, hypocrisy and callous treatment of his wife.
He actually ran as a 'values' candidate for Christ's sake. I know I shouldn't be surprised at right wing or fundamentalist hypocrisy but I was honestly mystified how they squared that circle.
