While I am a great fan of the site I feel your view (and facts) concerning President Obama are narrow and former Pres.Bush are unfocused. Pres. Obama inherited the Bush legacy concerning Mexico. If you remember Dubyas favorite saying:" Mexicans do jobs that Americans don't want to do." Americans don't want to do jobs that pay substandard wages, that are hazardous and unsafe, no health benefits and where you can be fired just because they don't want to pay you. In addition, like most immigrant groups, there is the coyote like middlemen that take part or all your wages for lodging, transportation, food and so on. They have as much regard for their fellow latinos as the white corporate exploiters that made possible, safe houses, cross border recruiting, and transportation around the country. In addition these middlemen served as translators so they would cash checks, warn not to seek help from police, manage medical "needs" and so forth. When the appeasement crackdown inadvertently starting including the businesses illegally employing illegal immigrants they applied the "Texas solution." Since they had no rights, Union protection or representation from the "Uncle Joses" in the state or Federal gov. they were just dumped into the general populace. No place to stay, no jobs, no family, often no available family, they either had to find a way back to Mexico, turn to gangs or crime and they became far more vulnerable to deportation. So, spearheaded by the bigots, their former "Patrons", the ignorantly fearful and a very profitable border /wall building and recruitment program there became a perfect storm of increased deportation. If you start out treating people like slaves, if they continue to accept that idea as being even marginally ok then you aren't American or Mexican. The main thing has to be, don't forget, don't vote Conservative because Grandma went to church and Grandad was in the Marines. And for Gods sake don't ignore what is happening in Texas and AZ.!
The most effective anti itching remedy that I have found is wetting the spot bitten and sprinkling Meat tenderizer (which uses a papaya extract), and making a paste that you can brush off after a minute or two. It apparently neutralizes the anti coagulant that the mosquito injects that causes the itching. Nothing else, like the store products, works so quickly.
Aside from JM being an anti environmental corporate lackey there are lot of us who do not like watching boring sports drivel, get a job ex sports commentators, talking heads, haters with opinions, endless news regurgitation , pop ins , ticker tape rerun, religious gumbas , reality shows, medical commercials,and last, but not the least: overweight sub intelligent radio shlock jocks who show why toads with mouths interchangeable with their behinds should never show a TV visual of themselves. Whew, if that doesn't show support JM, for being able to choose, then slap me like a monkey for not liking a banana when offered.
Nattering nabobs of negativism! Quoting from Spiro Agnew, the only vice president who had to resign on Bribery charges, That puts Sally in the same era as: doddering dinosaur of disregard. Bet you don't even know what a nabob is. A nabob is much more likely to be on the Board. Assuming there are "probably excellent' reasons for a firing before the facts is just as dangerous as assuming the board or all its members are competent . Proof being former lost lawsuits. It is not the job of the board to engender lawsuits. Especially when they just have to act decently thru due process. Good management starts at the top. The board seems to be like the school boards in Texas. Anointed, not appointed. Just what is the criteria for being on this Board?
I am sure none of us should be surprised, the future belongs to those who remember, not those who forget. Stonewall doesn't signify the same thing to the board. The board has always seemed to be run by those who want to justify their “log cabin republican'” mentality rather than the sacrifice, decency , and hard work of the people helping those in most need. The country club queens want to to ride in the pride parade without the peasants. This new "executive Director" SEEMS to have shown herself to be in the :Dick Cheneys’ Daughter business mode. This reminds me of the old saw that when a dictator farts, all below must inhale deeply.
The NRA is run by the "Gun Hole" Chapter. What are the "qualifications", to belong? Well, the the first is a deep seated inferiority complex. The next is greed. The third is no sense of proportion. Just think of all the things you could spend $1500 dollars on. A vacation, food for your animals or children, a refrigerator, car repairs, martial arts training, clothes, donations to programs for Military amputees, wives and children of firemen, police, first responders, mental health evaluations for their own children, etc. etc. It is all about justification. Justification for all the wasted money spent on "Assault weapons', that are useless in most excusable defense situations and which serve only to bolster a cowardly sense of inadequacy. Buy yourself a "golden Gun" for a golden future day of super heroic self delusion. Of course, there is the last and greatest group of "Gun Holes". These are the people that make mass kill guns, buy the people that vote for their greed, and the people that pander to and sell to the selfishly deluded who feel that they can't defend themselves with less than ten bullets. There you are, heroically mowing down the hordes of burglars, trespassers, neighbors dogs, teenagers, commies, tax collectors, immigrants, atheists, proctologists and all others who seek to invade the nether regions. What do mean honey, I'm a donkeyhole? If you had just bought those drum magazines we could have got em all!
smart enough to be a Republican is the same thing that paying your fair share of taxes is based on. For
Republicans the less you invest , in smarts, or taxes, the more you are Republican.
