NIMBY

Apparently the Trump Administration has been discussing sending sanctuary seeking oppressed persons of foreign citizenship who cross our borders irregularly to those cities in the United States which have declared they will defy Federal Law in order to provide succor to such unfortunates. My question is, why didn't the Sanctuary Cities demand this long ago?… Continue reading NIMBY

Germ theory denialism

99% of the anti-vaxxers in and near Portland, Oregon will call you a "science denier" if you suggest CAGW is debatable in any way. Simultaneously, they choose to risk the death of their children from measles.  Never mind the danger to others of providing many more disease vectors.

That could have gone better

Predictably, Trump supporters are praising the President's executive order on immigration despite its flaws. Even more predictably, his detractors are invoking their Hitler analogies and ignoring the fact that the countries targeted come from a list developed by the Obama administration, who actually did use it to discriminate - against Christians.

The 34% solution

The border with Mexico is 1,900 miles long. About 650 miles of it are fenced against illegal immigrants. Our President calls the fence "basically complete."It follows, then, that our President defines "basically complete" as 34% complete. Or perhaps less. I'm sure 32% would qualify. Maybe even 25%. In fact, it doesn't matter to the President… Continue reading The 34% solution

USA Today to the rescue of Soros and Bloomberg?

Senaturkeys think they've got problems with talk radio? Apparently, they forgot the Internet. Trent Lott Sells Out (Video) You'll find more examples of ads that any Senator who votes for the Amnesty Bill will face, and not just on the 'net, here. Thanks to Mickey Kaus for encouraging creation of the examples, and to yesterday's… Continue reading USA Today to the rescue of Soros and Bloomberg?

Vast bi-partisan conspiracy

When Trent Lott joins forces with Hillary Clinton and Barbara Boxer, you know there's a serious problem, and it isn't deciding what to wear to Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday party.
