It's designed to refer to low income people who may need that housing and that includes many people of color since they comprise of a disproportionate number of that demographics.

What is so bad about the idea anyway? Is there something inherently wrong with low income people that makes us want to keep them out of our suburban neighborhoods? Where should they be living?

Sorry but you are the racist and you are a disgusting human being for being that person. He is saying the burbs have all those people escaping from the city and you interpret as a racist comment. Tells us all you are talking about what you are.

Paul is more hilarious than usual. - "What is so bad about the idea anyway? Is there something inherently wrong with low income people that makes us want to keep them out of our suburban neighborhoods? Where should they be living?"
Apparently Paul has never studied what happens to areas after the 'projects' move in.
Increased crime, litter, graffiti - sounds great, huh, Paul.
What's stopping Paul from moving next to some urban projects?
Where should they live?
It isn't a matter of where 'poor' people live.
They can live anywhere they want.
It's a matter of 'where and how' the govt puts poor people.
Cabrini Greens ring any bells with you, Paul?
And notice Paul refuses to answer why wealthy white leftists never ever have any 'projects' near where they live.
Bottom line - Trump wasn't being racist.
Fake news, again.

Can you define what the"projects" are Scott. Are you referring to the nature of the housing developments or the people that you define as "projects"?

Friday, Kunstlerday.
".....
The latter matter hints at the catastrophe lurking in the background of the election: the stupendous mass bankruptcy of unemployed or laid-off middle-class people whose rent and mortgage payment holidays will eventually run out, not to mention car payments and all the other overdue, usual, rotating bills each household must pay to stay above water. After half a year of lockdowns, millions are on the brink of financial ruin.

Of all the things that have made Americans anxious and hysterical this year, this horror of middle-class financial ruin has not quite expressed itself overtly in the public arena — at least, not in the streets. For sure, the Antifas and BLM mobs have been active looting, burning, and smashing things up, but many of these are unemployables, and the ones burdened with college debt may be counting on Democratic Party promises of a jubilee on that.

The foundering middle-class may be people most sympathetic to Trump and Trumpism. You can’t sell them on the identity politics nonsense that has become the Dems’ stock-in-trade. Laid-off airline pilots, hair stylists, and insurance adjusters are probably not interested in critical race theory, gender dysphoria, re-imagining law enforcement, able-ism, and the travails of the “neuro-diverse” (the latest term-of-art for the mentally ill). They may also catch a whiff of yet deeper economic calamity in the Democrats’ relish for more lockdowns, and even in the promised “universal basic income” schemes that would pay the able-bodied to not work. The question for this large group is how many will swap their liberty for the very sketchy and conditional security of a Woke nanny state that requires strict obedience to whatever crazy crusade it thinks up next?

There’s your true friction point in the current disposition of things. People used to being busy, productive, and independent may feel a mighty resentment about becoming that kind of society, and they may fight over it. At least they’ll turn out to vote on it. Maybe they’ll do both."

You claimed Trump is a racist on the issue of suburbs. You really are not very bright so I expect nothing of value from a limousine liberal like you.

==============================================

Here is a little something to ruin his afternoon, can you say margin of error? -

A poll released on Friday shows that the presidential race has swung several points in President Donald Trump’s direction after the debate in Cleveland on Tuesday night.

The first significant national poll conducted post-debate, by Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP, shows the race has sharply tightened after the chaotic first debate earlier this week. Former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democrat presidential nominee, has seen his lead cut down to just 2.6 percent in the wake of the debate.

Nationally, Biden only leads Trump by 2.6 percent—48.6 percent to 45.9 percent—in this survey, conducted entirely post-debate on Wednesday and Thursday, September 30 and October 1.

This post-debate poll represents a three-point swing Trump’s way after the debate—and an even more profound swing in the president’s direction since earlier in September.

While the poll showed Biden got better reviews from respondents for overall debate performance, more voters shifted to Trump after the debate than shifted to Biden.

The poll has a fairly large sample size, and a smaller margin of error—3.5 percent—meaning that Biden’s lead is inside that margin of error.

"The poll - conducted by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, Real Clear Education and College Pulse – asked 20,000 students at 55 campuses across the nation questions regarding free speech issues and comfort. The question measured such elements as tolerance, openness and self-expression.

On a question about options for “action to protest a campus speaker,” the students answered how acceptable it is to remove flyers or ads for an upcoming event, shout down a speaker or block them from speaking, block other students from entering the event or even use violence to stop a speech."

PaulE 158pm - Well, you are full of surprises. You don't know what the colloquial use of 'projects' has been for at least the last 40 years to describe subsidized public housing. Not all, but many of these projects suffer from the rapid advent of filth, crime, and drug dealing/use soon after they are opened for residence. You may then also not be aware of how many of these projects have been literally torn down within a few decades of such abusive living. Here's more -

Paul is using the typical lefty dodge. I'm pointing out the evils of having to live near projects and Paul tries to twist it into an attack on black people or poor people.
I'd bet most govt housing projects have no more than 15% of the total population that are thugs, trouble-makers or drug dealers. But the rest of the folks living there are in fear of the thugs and have no ability to get rid of them or they are just indifferent as they have no experience of living in a better situation.
The Dems want to pack Dem voters into areas that are traditionally conservative and Republican. So they want to get rid of local control over zoning decisions.

Economic recovery fizzles:

President Donald Trump’s much heralded economic rebound is showing signs of fizzling out.

The U.S. added 661,000 jobs in September, a performance that ordinarily would be seen as stellar. But it was well below expectations for close to 1 million and represents a further slowdown in monthly job growth from the initial 4.8 million gained back in June and leaves the economy over 10 million short of restoring the 22 million jobs lost to the Covid-19 pandemic. The jobless rate dropped half a percentage point to 7.9%.

Paul 5:25 - "The U.S. added 661,000 jobs in September, a performance that ordinarily would be seen as stellar."
Oh yeah - if that was during the reign of Obama The First, Politico would be singing the Hosannas.
But it's Trump time, so 661K jobs added is just so awful.
And unemployment went down, but so what?
The narrative, the narrative!

Learn to woke, learn to code

‘Last Jobs Report Before the Election’
The economy added 661,000 jobs in September, as the recovery continues.

“It’s the mark of a fairly healthy economic recovery when news reports express disappointment with a gain of 661,000 jobs in a month, but that’s where we are for this last jobs report before the November election. Economists had predicted 800,000 jobs in September and a headline unemployment rate of 8.2%. While the jobs numbers were below expectations — primarily because of, as CNBC reports, “a drop in government hiring” — the headline unemployment rate dropped to 7.9% from 8.4% in August. Back in February, which seems so very long ago, that rate was a historically low 3.5%.

Of the 22 million jobs lost in March and April’s economic bloodbath, the U.S. economy has recovered more than 11 million of them. But layoffs persist in some sectors. Just three companies account for 60,000 layoffs this week — Disney permanently laid off 28,000 theme-park workers, while American Airlines and United Airlines cut 32,000 jobs — and those losses aren’t included in the September report.

Democrats will, of course, attempt to hang a “sluggish” recovery around President Donald Trump’s neck. That might be fair enough in “the buck stops here” sense, but in reality it’s a gross distortion. The nation’s two biggest states, California and New York, are both run by Democrats and both remain significantly restricted economically.

The fallout in New York? According to state comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, half of New York City’s restaurants and bars are at risk of having to “close forever.” That could cost 150,000 jobs — job losses that would be the responsibility of Democrat NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and Democrat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, not the president. It is their orders, not his, that keep such establishments running at a fraction of capacity, if at all.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post reports that the COVID recession “is the most unequal in modern U.S. history” because unemployment has “overwhelmingly affected low-wage, minority workers.” Forgive us if we get the impression that blue-state governors and mayors find more political benefit in “unequal” job losses than they do in helping their own constituents by fully reopening the economy. These aren’t statistics or political pawns; they’re individuals’ livelihoods and futures.”

Daily Quotes. Last quote by Scott Adams is a good one.

Insight: “We cannot afford to differ on the question of honesty if we expect our republic permanently to endure. Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite to efficient service to the public. Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life; it matters not how brilliant his capacity.” —Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919)

Food for thought: “Like so many ‘bombshell’ revelations, the Melania tapes only make the Trumps look better. Secret recordings of FLOTUS and the worst thing they capture is her complaining about Christmas decorations? Give me a break. What do you think secret tapes of Michelle would sound like?” —Matt Walsh

Friendly fire: “Interesting to see those who’ve spent the last few years screaming that Trump’s an uncaring, heartless empathy-devoid b*stard now spewing their gleeful joy that he & his wife have a deadly virus. They’re no better than the man they loathe.” —Piers Morgan

For the record I: “I’ve said it many times, and let me be clear again: I condemn the KKK. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the Proud Boys. I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing. But I condemn that.” —Donald Trump

For the record II: “I denounce white supremacy. I denounce anti-Semitism. I denounce racism. I denounce fascism. I denounce communism and any other -ism that is prejudiced toward people because of their race, religion, culture, tone of skin.” —Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio

Elitist contempt: “The people who were very transparent about, like, voting because they wanted a tax cut. Okay. But, like, you knew you also were voting for a racist, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, misogynistic, transphobic human being who was going to have a lot of power to manifest those, like, hateful bigoted values into the world. So that may be what is your motivation.” —Chelsea Clinton

The BIG Lie: “We never needed nursing home beds because we always had hospital beds. So, it just never happened in New York, where we needed to say to a nursing home, ‘We need you to take this person even though they’re COVID-positive.’ It never happened.” —Andrew Cuomo (Fact check: Yes it did.)

And last… “Republicans believe in forgiveness for your actual sins and Democrats believe in hating you for imagined sins. That difference has emerged as the major theme in this country.” —Scott Adams

Bill Tozer

Scott O, it’s too painful to consider. Breaks my heart.

Did get a chuckle tonight. Always a silver lining. Today Trump did not take questions walking out to Marine One. He was airlifted! Mede-vac!!

“Chief White House correspondent and charlatan Jim Acosta complained after Trump departed that Trump “didn’t want to take any...questions” he and the rest of the assembled press wanted to hear.

Acosta remarked that Trump rarely wears a mask and then diagnosed Trump as having “looked tired” with “some fatigue in [his] eyes.”

Using only his naked eye, he added “Marine One was just taking a little extra time leaving the White House grounds this evening” and “[t]hat could also just be the way they were flying this evening, but it just — everything seemed to be moving a little slower this evening which, of course, is understandable, Wolf, given the situation that the President is in right now.”

Like his colleague Jeremy Diamond did earlier, he engaged in schadenfreude about the White House staff wearing masks and, after that, he applied a serious medical term for something he’s not an expert in: “Obviously this doesn't happen very often for the President of the United States to essentially be airlifted or medevaced from from — from the White House to Walter Reed suggests this is a serious situation.”

The platform also said that certain searches, including “Day of the Dead costumes,” will lead users to information developed by experts and Pinterest employee group PIndigenous “on how to celebrate thoughtfully and respectfully.”

“Costumes are consistently a top-searched term, but many people may not know that certain costumes are appropriations of other cultures,” Pinterest wrote in the statement. “As a platform for positivity, we want to make it easy to find culturally-appropriate Halloween ideas, and bring awareness to the fact that costumes should not be opportunities to turn a person’s identity into a stereotyped image.”

“I'm not sure whether I'm more bothered by the one-sidedness of it (white males seem to be the only ones that have to follow 'the rules') or the stark-raving mad stupidity of people that think they have to be the cultural appropriation police.”

White females have to follow the rules as well. What university was it that banned on the Kentucky Derby weekend all sorority costumes glorifying the Antebellum Period. Slave owners and their white daughters greeting gentleman callers on the front porch swing of “the most opulent plantation house in North America, the San Francisco Plantation House.”

Trouble is, the Kentucky Derby had is maiden race after the Civil War, not pre civil war Antebellum with mammy. But, that was not the point, was it. Those sorority white girls had all their Kentucky Derby Watch party plans cancelled if they showed up as Scarlet O’Hare.

Trump, like cops and doctors and nurses and grocers and “fill in the blank,” is an essential worker. Period. You can’t hole up in your basement because of coronavirus. We need a leader who’s going to lead (like a boss) not someone who’s going to hide and be a candy ass.

Mistakes on the Nevada County Voter Guide. Staff quitting days before an all mail election. Our daughter received her voter guide at my wife’s friend’s house. Our daughter has not lived there for over eight years. Since she lived there, she has lived in Truckee, Netherlands, Reno (where she currently registered to vote), and very recently back in Nevada County. So potentially three ballots will be mailed out. One in Nevada County to the wrong address to someone who should no longer even be registered in California, one to her former residence in Nevada where she is currently registered to vote, and a third ballot when she votes provisionally because she doesn’t have the other ballots. Random ballots floating around invites fraud. Of course our daughter is going to re-register and would only vote once, but who’s to say someone else doesn’t submit a ballot on her behalf unbeknownst to her. And what’s even worse, Nevada County has been a mail-in jurisdiction for seven elections and Diaz is still mailing ballots to the wrong locations to people who should not be registered in Nevada County at all. Apparently California and Nevada are talking about registrations. This election will end up being a joke brought to you by Democrat policies seeking to delegitimize our democracy. Dim wits.

GeorgeR: "this is embarrassing. Some people actually believe in the "expectations" and "predictions" of the experts and analysts who have the worst prognostication record of anyone; "

Isn't that the heart of the Leftist philosophy that has grown over the last 140 years or so?

The basic idea is that a wise man or committee can understand complex systems well enough to actively manage them. State monopolies can be run via top-down administration and bottom-up price controls. Equality can be forced via fiat. A universal utopia of fairness will erupt from madly twiddling the knobs of government force.

Oddly, you always end up with a poorly run bureaucracy, a small ruling class, and favelas. Maybe this time it'll be different.

'When The Media Ask Trump To Denounce White Supremacy, They’re Accusing Him Of It'

No matter how many times Trump condemns white supremacy it will never be enough for the media because their motive is to smear Trump as racist.

another not bad article. Funny how that 'Red Scare' is just all over the place.

The important take-away:

"Do not cede small points in order to keep the peace. The peace will not be kept this way. Cede small points, and you will be expected to cede more. Apologize for things you did not do, and you will be held accountable for those things, and more. This movement is cloaked so beautifully, as if it is a gift of freedom and justice for all. But it is not that. It brings division and destruction. Do not accept the horse at the gates."

Post-debate polls: Biden up by 5 in Florida, 7 in Pennsylvania

Joe Biden leads President Donald Trump in the two largest swing states in next month’s election, Florida and Pennsylvania, according to the first reliable public polls conducted after the candidates’ debate earlier this week.

Nate Silver now has Trump down to a 19% chance of winning, down from 25% just a little over a week ago. Not looking good at all but 19% is 19%. the point is he's on the decline. I thought he was supposed to climb after he "won" the debate as Todd and Walt claim.

Gregory

puchy 1117am

And what was Trump's chances down to by Silver's estimation this day in '16?

Yes, I know this is exciting. Like xmas when you were little!

Good question Gregory thanks for asking:

What I found is Nate had 67-Hillary Trump 32 on Sept 30
Final numbers were 71 Clinton 28 Trump final odds

Today it's Biden 81-Trump 19
Trump is down by 13 from '16 on this date.
I'll keep you updated

THE WEEK IN PICTURES: POST-DEBATE EDITION
I think I know what’s really going on. Over at KAOS headquarters (otherwise known as Trump Tower), the show runners were recalling the palmy days of the Access Hollywood tape four years ago, when everyone said IT’S OVER!—PUT PENCE AT THE TOP OF THE TICKET NOW! The attempted sequel—the Melania Tapes—bombed, so someone said, “I’ve got it! Let’s go with COVID! Yeah, that’s the ticket!”

"Yes, I know this is exciting. Like xmas when you were little!"

I've been having fun watching Paul's Tourette Poll Outbursts and then comparing them to the RCP polls from 4 years ago.

It's all up in the air, lotsa things have changed, and I wouldn't be surprised with any outcome. Thank God I'm not a News Director, I'd probably have to avoid the propaganda which would naturally result in a boring program.

BillT: "the Melania Tapes—bombed"

It's sad how incredibly creepy modern politics is. We've had four years of bombshell stories produced about Trump or Trump associates private lives produced with release of private information. Imagine what the future leaves for us.

Judging from 5 years of Paul, we all live in the Weekly World News. The father of Melania's alien space baby probably *was* Bat Boy.

punchy 1216pm


I'm guessing you don't know that the odds being "down by 13" is meaningless. An 81:19 split just means that in their simulations, one side won 81% of the time... and the other side won 19% of the time.

It ain't over till its over.

paul emery

Yes Gregory and in '16 Trump had a 32% chance of winning according to Nate. This year he has a 19% which is 13 % less than '16. Are you saying that's a meaningless difference?

Don, are you looking for some sports? I heard some rumor that the NBA playoffs or finals were going on in some place in time (Year Zero), or maybe I heard that the MLB playoffs are going on...or was that the NFL season and college football opened a week ago. Just a rumor, nobody is talking about it. Odd.
If you want sports, let’s take a walk, shall we?

RIP Bob Gibson. :(

REMEMBERING BOB GIBSON
Bob Gibson died this week at the age of 84. Major League baseball’s website has posted a fine tribute to this great pitcher, one of the 20 best starters of all time for my money.

With his seven World Series game wins across three Series, his record-breaking performances in 1968 (after which the pitchers’ mound was lowered), and his unforgettable intimidating presence, Gibson was arguably the most important major leaguer of the 1960s.

(Sandy Koufax was a better pitcher, but he was done after 1966. Willie Mays and Hank Aaron were the dominant hitters, but collectively they played in only one World Series during the 1960s.)

In 1969, it took until the final game of the season for Gibson to notch his 20th win. I wrote about that game here. The following season, Gibson won 23 games and his second Cy Young award.

Even with all of these accomplishments, it’s Gibson fierce competitiveness for which he probably is best remembered. In his book about the 1964 season, David Halberstam lists the things that Gibson, the competitor, would not “permit” opponents to do. One of them was trying to bunt for a hit against him.

Therefore, my favorite Gibson story might not be apocryphal. It goes like this:

In a game against the Dodgers (if I recall correctly), the opposing leadoff batter was a speedy rookie. In his first appearance against Gibson, he bunted for a hit.

Gibson retired the next eight batters before the rookie came up again. Once again, the kid bunted for a hit.

In appearance number 3, Gibson’s first pitch smashed into the rookie’s helmet, knocking him down and nearly out. Gibson took a few steps towards the fallen batter and yelled: “Bunt that, a**h***.”

RIP, Bob Gibson.

The first MBL game I ever saw was Bob Gibson out dueling Don Drysdale 1-0, both went 9 innings. I thought the game was boring. Little did I know I saw too greats going at it. Gibson was in the start his shutout innings streak and went on to set the record for consecutive scoreless lining, consecutive shutout complete games. Think it was something like 49-54 straight innings. Drysdale broke Gibson’s record a year or two later. Boring game. No action, lol.

Remember when Juan Marichal beaned Johnny Roseboro over the head with a baseball bat during the game. Those were the days my friend, we thought they would never end.

re: Nate Silver

IF memory serves me correctly, Silver had Trump at 19% most of the dog days of summer in 2016, then Trump stayed around 22-24% and it wasn’t until the last two weeks or so that Trump hit 32-33-34-32-and 32% chance of grabbing the golden ring in early November, or late late October.

I just don’t care to look it up. Yawner. I already know this might turn out. Internals are where it’s at, baby.

paul emery

Explain to me what "internals" are Bill. Also how do you get information what their numbers are. You and Todd are fixated on them being the true source of election numbers. If you google "internals" you get this which makes me think you refer to "gut feelings"..

"Internals usually refers to the internal parts of a machine, organism or other entity; or to the inner workings of a process. More specifically, internals may refer to: the internal organs. the gastrointestinal tract."

Walt

Poor Emery."internals" have been explained to you over and over.
Yup.. TROLL.

"President Donald Trump continues to advance his America First agenda, signing an executive order last week to increase the domestic production of critical minerals vital to the U.S. economy and national security — potentially lessening reliance on foreign adversaries like Communist China."

Great news for the local mine. The chances of reopening just got better.

Bill Tozer

Paul Emery, local News Redirector. Of course I will happily explain internals to you and why internals are of such import. Glad to lend a hand.
Internals have been around awhile, but not for general circulation or public viewing. Orgins trace back to Mother Russia, I believe.

Where to begin? Ok, tilt your head back, visualize internals, click your ruby heels together, reach forth thy hand and pull my finger. See, internals.

Paul, you nailed it! Even a blind squirril finds a nut.

"More specifically, internals may refer to: the internal organs. the gastrointestinal tract."

Now you know what internals are. There is a grave marker out there somewhere that reads, "In the breeze where I please, not doing that was the death of me"

So, you can grasp the importance of internals, no. BTF, gotta run. It smells like a grunt sandwich in here. Paul, you need to open a window. Come on man.

Paul, Trump's numbers are record breaking! Trump's superspreader Covid infection numbers, that is.

"US records its highest single-day increase in COVID-19 infections since mid-August, JHU data shows
According to Johns Hopkins University, the country recorded 54,441 positive cases of COVID-19 on Friday, marking the highest single-day case count since August 14, when the US recorded just over 64,000 cases. Several states including Kentucky, New Jersey and Wisconsin all recorded new case spikes not seen in months."

thanks for explaining Bill that internals refer to common everyday shit. George should be proud to have someone of your intellectual capacity on his blog.
