As long as we're cherry picking from the polling orchards... Hispanics back Trump deportations, ending 'sanctuary cities'
"The numbers might even be better for Trump since more weight was given in the poll to Democrats, 36 percent to 33 percent Republican.
On cutting off federal grants to sanctuary cities, 46 percent of Hispanic voters agreed, 43 percent opposed. Overall, the margin was 59 percent support to 29 percent oppose."
Which could have more than a little bit to with Hillary's current status as a has-been, not to mention the Dems' exile to the wilderness.
Given that A) the perpetrator(s) are unknown, and B) so many of these "hate crimes" turn out to be hoaxes, it might be a good idea to dial back the outrage, at least until the facts are in.
Given that A) the perpetrator(s) are unknown, and B) so many of these "hate crimes" turn out to be hoaxes, it is not unreasonable to avoid making any judgements either way.
GOP lawmaker proposes abolishing Department of Education
It won't happen of course; the GOP doesn't have the spine. But a boy can dream.
We selfish, arrogant humans should heed the guidance of Mother Nature, and learn from her gentle tutelage.
Hi Ken C
Wapo: Obama's Dept of Ed says Preezy's $7 billion spending spree to fix failing schools didn't work
The American Enterprise Institute is even more blunt: The $7 billion school improvement grant program: Greatest failure in the history of the US Department of Education?
It's a crowded field, but shoveling any amount of cash down that rathole is will always be a contender. I say give DeVos the reigns and see what she does with them. She'd be hard pressed to do any worse.
I love that Rick Perry once proposed eliminating the Dept of Energy, and that Scott Pruitt has suggested the same fate for the EPA. Let's throw the Dept of Ed onto the fire, while we're at it.
If you believe that bloated bureaucracies are the way to go, and that the mangy hordes of unwashed, smelly serfs are not to be trusted with their own care & feeding without Big Bro dictating their every move & taxing every inch, then let's keep on keeping on. Maybe we can double our $20 trillion debt in time for the next presidential election. Hell - why wait for 2020? Let's make it happen by the midterms!
Here's Spencer celebrating the Patriots' win. The text accompanying this tweet: "For the White race, it's never over.#SuperBowl"
I don't even know what the eff that means. But evil is like the famous characterization of porn: Maybe I can't define it, but I know it when I see it.
Hi Ken M
Bannon's website (Brietbart) has declared itself an explicit platform for the alt right. Brietbart, in turn, has identified Steve Sailor and Richard Spencer as among the alt right's intellectual leadership. Spenser in particular is especially vile; a virulent neo nazi.
We know that Bannon described himself to the Daily Beast's Ronald Radosh as a "Leninist." And, “Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal, too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”
I don't know if Bannon is a white supremacist or a Marxist (although one would think our lefty friends would cheer any administration proximity to that pernicious ideology). The most charitable explanation I can come up with for these disturbing associations is that they're just convenient tools & useful idiots he's using to stir the pot and generate as much chaos as he can.
I think he's a snake. If the media (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the left) had been doing its job en route to the election, I doubt we'd be talking about this now. But the media made a calculation: Trump is a clownshow who can't possibly win, so let's cheer him on and watch him lose. Sadly for them (and, perhaps, the nation) the Democrat nominee was just as repellent as the GOP's.
Bannon's ties - tenuous or not - to douchebags like Spencer & Sailer need to be exposed and condemned.
One of the most positive (& unlikely) reactions to all the bs over the last year would be for ideologues - on both sides - to hold their own just as accountable as they do the opposition.
It's from a late night comedy sketch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TtHoRBIXvvs
