The interesting thing is that, in Arizona, a bonafide combat veteran can be basically heads-up with a fairly radical left-wing politician.

“Arizona is the meth lab of democracy” ....not a bad line but hardly the way to endear yourself to the electorate!

“Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema Attacked ‘Bullshit’ Stay-At-Home Moms For ‘Leeching Off Their Husbands’

'“Arizona is the meth lab of democracy” ....not a bad line but hardly the way to endear yourself to the electorate!'

Yeah, I've seen all the Sinema quotes.

The thing is that a lot of AZ voters don't think of themselves as Arizonans or even Americans.

Mocking traditional culture, and in the long run destroying it, is a perfectly acceptable concept with 1/2 of the 21st C. electorate.

It's OK really. It isn't like cultures last forever, and something new will take it's place. Some other large group of people with a strong internal glue (the Chinese perhaps? some new thing?) will take the place of the Anglosphere. We had a good run while it lasted. The Blue Mob is just a symptom, not a cause.

It's the interregnum that's going to be the ugly part.

Well Fish if you have never been in the business I'm in you don't understand the responsibility of producing a concert. The SF Mimes have been going for 60 years, have won many international awards and are one of the most respected professional theater groups in the country. They may not be your cup of tea but that's not a concern of mine. I felt there was a possibility of a violent confrontation in that situation so I acted appropriately. The person involved has been identified and the police have been involved in watching him. He has a history of mental illness and rage and lives in our community.

scenes

re: ***m***@3:01PM

"Don't separate families and lose their children!!!" Keep in mind that there is nothing new to how that works. It's a system that Trump inherited, regardless of the history rewrite that is going on. Remember that if a child=get out of jail card, everybody is going to bring a child, related or not....which is exactly what happened.

"Process people in an orderly and timely manner!!!" That all depends on the number of people entering. If the system is overwhelmed, guess what happens.

"If an immigrant can make it across the border,,,they are Home Free!!!" Ah...I see. That is the issue. If anyone entering the country gets to stay, whether they sneak in or use a 'temporary' visa, that's the rub. I'm afraid our Civil War will get fought over that one. The US could probably accumulate 100M new people in a decade or so given that model, just think of the vibrant diversity!!!! I'm assuming that you are against physical barriers, even if San Diego gets overrun.

Check it out PaulE!!! ***M*** has a policy!

So Paul...should anyone who sets foot within the boundaries of the US get to stay forever?

Paul Emery

They should be evaluated as to whether they are eligible for asylum if they apply.

For what it's worth here's Nate Silvers look at next weeks Congressional elections.

"All of this sets up what could be a feast-or-famine evening for Democrats next Tuesday. They have a huge number of opportunities to win Republican seats — around 100 of them! And yet, it would be hard to circle more than about 12 or 15 of these districts that can safely be predicted to wind up in Democrats’ hands. If things go roughly to form nationwide, Democrats almost certainly will get there. But even a modest pro-GOP polling error — if Republicans were to beat their polls by 2 or 3 points across the board — would revert the overall race to being a toss-up. Conversely, even a modest, pro-Democratic polling error could send their number of pickups careening into the 50s, or higher. The wide ranges in our forecast reflect the uncertain conditions on the ground."

Here's a link to the entire piece.

PaulE: "They should be evaluated as to whether they are eligible for asylum if they apply."

That's how it currently works, so I can't see what all the fuss is. You are saying then that the current system is A-OK? Trump, after all, is basically making an attempt to enforce the current law.

I'll give you a break here, though. Should people be eligible for asylum due purely to economic reasons? or just a general state of danger in their country? That's not currently the case except for special dispensations given now and again to favored groups.

Keep in mind that you have defined probably 3/4 of the world's population at that point. Lacking border enforcement, I would hope that the results are fairly obvious.

Paul Emery

What happened to the "Wall " that Trump promised? He has, for now, total control of the House and Senate and there's nothing. It's what to expect from our Liar in Chief.

scenes

"Right wing Caravan hysteria is a real thing!!!"

Realistically I think it's more a matter of viewing the Caravan as similar to the results of paying ransom. It never really ends.

What do you think will happen if the US lets in 5k-10k people because they want to improve their well-being and appear unable to do it on their own in their native country?

Another 5k? 50k? 500k? In 30 years, the Central American immigrant group in the US went from 300k to 3M+. 30 more years, and the border simply becomes a fictional line on a map.

I guess it's all just payback for the US (and Canada) grabbing the part of the Americas that had all the roads.

Bill Tozer

Scenes
According to the HHS spokeswoman this morning, 80% of the asylum seekers are denied aslym by the legal process. She also said every illegal immigrant costs our country $31,000/year. Or was that $32k/year? Of the ones (line jumpers) who are given a court date to appear for their alsym claims, 3% or less show up to court and have disappeared into the homeland. That’s who we are dealing with. A person applying for asylum, unlike a person applying for entry, is given benefits and housing vouchers...and a bus ticket, lol. Come to America. No speak English, no read or write Spanish, no skills. What are the chances the majority of the members of the caravan can succeed in today’s America without being on the dole? Who are these people? How can we vet them before they touch US soil? Answer: our legal orderly process. But noooo. They don’t want that. That’s why they jump the border and jump the line ahead of law abiding and good people that follow the rules wanting. We reward folks who cut in line.

If the standard of fear is “domestic violence”, that means every single person from around the globe can come here, receive benefits, be a net drain on our society and safety net, not to mention driving wages down for entry level Americans and legal immigrants. How do you prove someone from Bum, Egypt or Bali does not have a fear of domestic violence? How do you prove a person from Chad does have a fear of domestic violence? What, are we back to Christie Ford making claims without one witness who she personally named backing her story? The best storytellers will be believable, lol.

Senator Feinstein once said back in the day that California will not become Mexico’s welfare state. Guess we are stuck with becoming Central America’s welfare state.

scenes

re: Nate Silvers sez ""All of this sets up what could be a feast-or-famine evening for Democrats next Tuesday. "

Which means, "I have no clue".

My best guess is that we are coming to the end of professional polling as being a useful tool in political forecasting. Big Data + AI will likely result in much more accurate predictions, and you'll have no clue why it came to it's conclusions. It might be that Snickers bars sales combined with Facebook SIGINT might be enough to call a race.

scenes

PaulE: "What happened to the "Wall " that Trump promised? He has, for now, total control of the House and Senate and there's nothing. "

Oh come on. You know that's not true. If he had total control of the House/Senate (plus the Courts and lawsuits), the Wall would be further on it's way.

I'm too old and tired to post up the 100 roadblocks that effort has had.

Bill Tozer

Ok. Suppose we decide tomorrow to let 2 million additional people in the USA on top of the 1-1.5 million we grant entry into our homeland each year and the 650,000 have have overstayed their visas. Just 2 million additional ones. But, 4 million show up. What to do, oh what to do?????

So, who decides of the 4 million folks who show at the border which two million of the folks are given the thumbs up and which of the the other half are given the thumbs down?? Anyway you slice it, it all gets back to having a legal process to decide. It all gets back to legal vs illegal. Even in my example of an additional 4 million folks or which two million will be taken in, it stil requires a good orderly legal process to sort it out. Can’t get around the law in a nation of laws, not men. Otherwise we have open borders where anyone can come and go as they please.

Hard to make tax policy or write grants or put money to roads and services or build structures if the population is not controlled and numbered. The government has an obligation to the people and the people have their obligations to the government. Taxes and services. If not, we have no country, just a place called America. No common language, no common culture, no common goals, no common thang that is the glue that binds any sovereign nation. We cease to be America if we have migrations of folks coming and going as they please. An athesis once told me around God. GOD= Good Orderly Direction. A legal process.
It is antithetical to me, as a rule of thumb, to reward bad behavior.. Cut in line? Go to the back of the line. Crossing the border illegally and not at a port of entry is a bad way to start the relationship between the host country and the guest in a nation of laws.

Paul Emery

The fact is Scenes is that Trump is a lousy politician and doesn't have a clue how to get legislation through the Congress. Other than the tax cut show me one piece of major Legislation he has conceived of and soldiered through the Congress. He's all talk and no show. A big mouth bullshitter and serial liar.

"The fact is Scenes is that Trump is a lousy politician and doesn't have a clue how to get legislation through the Congress. "

OK, so you don't like Trump because he was unable to push through legislation for the Wall.

DonB 459pm - the use of border walls for keeping people in or out is way too complex of an idea for progressives to grasp. To them these walls are all the same, to be interpreted in whatever convenient way du jour to continue their narrative. And the sad part is that they can get away with that ignorance because their core constituency has even more modest credentials in that department.

Paul Emery

Here's some details aout what has been funded for Trumps Fake Wall


Also, rather than one of the 30-foot tall prototypes for the wall that Trump visited on March, any additional security is limited to the same model of fencing and levees currently used along the border.

In total, the bill contains three separate outlays for changes to physical border barriers:

$251 million for 14 miles of new secondary fencing along the border in the San Diego sector. This was a request from Trump's budget.
$445 million to replace existing fencing. According to congressional aides, this should refurbish 45 miles worth of barriers.
$641 million for 33 miles of new fencing and levees in the Rio Grande Valley sector.

Does Trump have the funding to build the wall or not? Simple question. If not it's just more bullshit from our Liar in Chief.


Trump quote:

Bill Tozer

Remember when all the R’s in Congress would resist Trump and he would not be able to get a thing done and he would be forced to up and quit.......yeah, that was a real doozie, wasn’t? Now that we are moving along cleaning up our side of the street, our attention will be on the seedy shadowed side of the street. That’s wear the big rats are.

Things are tightening out there. Montana is within striking distance, a hard state to read in normal times, I don’t see a complete wipeout as forecasted (another real doozie). It ain’t really a Blue Wave if it does not take both the House and Senate and Governors and State Legislatures.

In these arguments it appears that only the bygone faults of Republicans are fair game to cite - somehow the Democrats' bygone sins no longer count. Is that written in stone somewhere?

“Is that written in stone somewhere?”

Yes! It’s written in stone on just about every headstone across the land. On Tuesday, Nov. 6, the bodies arise from the graves and vote for Democrats.

George

Are you saying the veracity of the statements of our CURRENT President are not fair game for criticism?

Todd Juvinall

Democrats have a statute of limitations on their lies. One article then exoneration. Never to be heard of again. And if it is brought up by a critic as a example, the "bringer" is a racist, bigot, homophobe. The strategy used to work until we on the Right started to challenge them. And we see the results. The left has gone violent.

Paul Emery

Of course from a historic perspective the trustfulness of all Presidents is fair game, However the lies of our current president intended to influence public opinion are an urgent issue.

Oh my. The Social Justice Warriors were dreaming their panties and Depends when the news broke that Whitey (Y-T) was murdered as he was attacked with the ole lock in the sock. They were rejoicing...until they found out it was Whitey Bulger.

Trump has only been president for a little under two years Punch. I've been posting here for a little over four.....next to zero criticism of Obama from you over the last two.....mild disappointment the he wasn't more generous with social programs.

Not the TDS that you display every day here! Again....it's funny!

Paul Emery

Because the RR's always use vintage Obama as a response to what's happening today.

Speaking of which where is the Tea Party speaking out for fiscal responsibility of the Trump Administration now that the debt has increased by a Trillion bucks in the last year. Not a peep from Tea Party Patriots.

"The national debt rose more than $1.2 trillion in the fiscal year that just concluded on Sept. 30, according to a government website that tracks the debt......

The budget deficit alone is set to soar above $1 trillion by 2020, as they did during President Obama's first term. But the federal borrowing also takes place outside its formal budget, including for various loan programs, and the pace of growth in the debt has already exceeded $1 trillion per year at times.

In addition to the $1.2 trillion increase in the national debt in the last fiscal year, it took a little more than six months for the debt to rise from $20 trillion to $21 trillion."

Gonna blame that on Obama?

George Rebane

PaulE 1032am - Au contraire Paul. Many "RR's" here volubly lament the national debt and related deficit spending that continues its growth also under Republicans. You apparently miss that in the related arguments about the budget components that give rise to the large deficits. We are a country divided about many things, including humungus transfer payments. Recall that you're for 'single payer', the greatest budget buster of all; and the rightwingers here are against subsidies of any and all kinds (including LaMalfa's ag payments).

Bill Tozer

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the Lamestream Media has toned down their Immigrant Horde coverage down to a trickle? They call it a non-story now. Too funny.
Odd considering their only “victory” they have in many moons is showing pics from Obama’s 2014 tossing kids into cages after ripping crying babies from the arms of their mothers! The horror, the horror. So, why aren’t they covering the Migration Hordes throwing rocks, sticks, and Molotov cocktails at police, injuring many. Why? Why, why, why?

Thank goodness we have Trump reminding the voters that the Leftinistas want to demolish ICE (not via global warming melting ice) and have open borders. Open to all comers from shithole countries. Thank you, Mr. President, for bringing the Leftinista policies back to the forefront yesterday.

Has anybody besides me noticed the Lamestream Media (Fakenews) has toned down their interest in Kavanaugh? The Kavavan, Kavanaugh, and Kaos are the legs of the Progressives’ three legged stool. Why would they drop their best weapons and terms of enragement on which they stand right belief the election? Very odd. It’s like they don’t want to focus on it after making it their only policies. If Kanaugh was guilty then, he certainly is guilty now.

Maybe it is because they know they are on the wrong side....again. Never get tired of winning and exposing who they are.

George Boardman

Dr. R, I assume you've read the lead editorial in today's edition of The Wall Street Journal regarding birthright citizenship and the 14th amendment. Sounds a lot like me, albeit in loftier language and with legal citations.

I suspect this will go the way of that 10 percent tax cut promised middle class types after the election.

Forgetaboutit!

P.S.: I like hiser.

Paul Emery

Year George B. It will also go the way of fake voter fraud allegations, Mexico building the wall and countless other proposals from our Liar in Chief.

Here's a response to the defunct Voter Fraud Panel from a member of the panel.

"‘The most bizarre thing I’ve ever been a part of"

Trump’s claim that as many as 3 million to 5 million fraudulent votes were cast in the 2016 election remains one of his most notable falsehoods.

Paul Emery

Yes George B

George Rebane

GeorgeB 1051am - Agreed on the 14th Amend; Trump is pissing into the wind on that one; even though the original intent of Congress was very limiting in scope, it no longer is - y'all come! Not so sure about the 10% cut, it depends if the economy shows signs of maintaining at least 3% growth in its quarterly reports. Otherwise you're right, fugedaboudit.

You're talking about what happened 8 years ago Fish. Trump lies daily now. Mexico will pay for the wall. Do you really believe that?


Again Punch it's funny how you blew through your arbitrary 8 year limit on the window of criticism to go after Bush when Obama was president!

Do you give these statements even the slightest thought before you hurry to post them?!

She's back?

Last night, “The Conners” was beaten by everything- “NCIS,” “The Voice,” etc. This was their first really objective run, no World Series, nothing to distract potential viewers.
But the key demo sank, which isn’t a good sign. And the total viewers were down by 180K, which is a lot, frankly. People are leaving and they’re not coming back.

ABC has ordered 1 extra episode to the original order of 10. Sounds to me like a finale. Someone wakes up and says they dreamt Roseanne died. There’s a cackle from the next room. Fade to black.

Homey don't play that Uncle Punchy! You are remarkably selective in your outrage towards lying presidents!

Todd Juvinall

My recollection on Paul Emery during the eight years of Obama was o love. He just loved that guy. Liked the crease in his pants too. And for those eight years Paul Emery expropriated Bush on a daily basis. Now he is PO'd that we bring up his love Obama in comparison to Trump. You have to be mentally challenged as a libertarian/green to think that way.

Regarding the 14th. You may be surprised by what could happen. I listened to a 14th scholar last night and the intent and practice for a hundred years was tossed in the 1960's to what we see now. Maybe there will be an "adjustment.

Paul Emery

Not selective at all. Just dealing with whats in front of us right now. Fish, do you believe Mexico will pay for the Wall Fish?
