The problem with the story is the false "everybody".

No, there is not room for another ten million ILLEGALS.

This story was planted by the US Chamber of Commerce on behalf of employers who want to suppress wages for the poorest US citizens.

Do not trust the media.

He is a national joke.
The epitome of the regressive Left.
I hope his story stays in the news for a long time just so people can remember what the Left will do to further it’s hateful cause.

Elizabeth Warren proposes canceling student loan debt

Fake Indian can kiss my ass. I am putting my daughter through college now, and have been saving for that since she was born. While I was saving, I got to see easy credit college loans run up the price, as the irresponsible think easy credit equals affordability. I say all who took those loans need to pay back in full. After all, they ran up the prices for the responsible people who work to avoid debt.

It seems premature to blame the Muslims considering they are also a minority.

NEW DELHI — Sri Lankan officials said on Monday that the coordinated bombings of churches and hotels across the country on Easter Sunday had been carried out by National Thowheeth Jama’ath, a little-known radical Islamist group, with help from international militants.

Most terrorism in the world is committed by Muslims.

It has always been this way, right from Mohammed's personal robberies of caravans, rapes of the women, and murders of the men, as documented in official Islamic history.

Christians have done bad things in spite of Christianity. Jesus killed no one. But Muslims do bad things because of Islam, not in spite of it. Mohammed killed many.

The only path to stopping Islamic terrorism is to publicly point out that Islam itself is the primary cause of terrorism, and that most of the funding for it comes from our own purchases of Saudi gasoline at the pump, which many US businesses profit from.

Muslims should be ashamed of Islam, and the US should be ashamed of supporting Saudi Arabia, especially after 9/11.

In addition to quality of life concerns, I think another important issue is that of resilience. As California (and the entire country, for that matter) gets more and more full, people live closer and closer to the edge of catastrophe. For example, with our ever-stressed transportation system, a single fault in a single road can have massive effects on traffic. My 5 mile commute usually takes 20 to 25 minutes; one day there was an accident on a road I don't even take and that caused spillover to my commute and increased the time to 90 minutes — if I had known, I could have walked home. I've seen housing going up on hard-to-build steep hills because the easy places are already built. Who on earth would be stupid enough to build a housing community in a ditch between two hills or in a flood plain — Californians, that's who.

Last year's huge California fires caused massive burn damage to recently-built communities, not communities that had been around for 100 years. Part of the issue is that these communities were built where they were built because the low-fire-danger areas are all built up already.

While California has physical space to even double our population, that is not the same as carrying capacity of infrastructure and financial resources.

If the students are required to pay off their loans, it means the students will have less money to spend on cars, going out, and travel. The students will also need to be less wasteful with food, live with roommates instead of taking up a single residence, and consume less across the board. This enforced frugality leads to less use of resources and to a smaller carbon footprint.

Therefore, forgiving student loans contributes to climate change. Don't do it.

Well, if Sri Lanka government weren't over in Iraq making war, the Muslims wouldn't be over in Sri Lanka retaliating. Oh... nevermind.

For the record, I don't like the idea that the west is in the middle east making war. One of my hopes for Trump was that he would be able to override the most monnied of the Deep State and get us out of the Middle East.

Well, if Sri Lanka would only pass comprehensive gun control, this catastrophe would never have happened. Oh... nevermind.

Dozens of protesters gathered in Bangladesh's capital on Friday to demand justice for an 18-year-old woman who died after being set on fire for refusing to drop sexual harassment charges against her Islamic school's principal.

Nusrat Jahan Rafi told her family she was lured to the roof of her rural school in the town of Feni on April 6 and asked to withdraw the charges by five people clad in burqas. When she refused, she said her hands were tied and she was doused in kerosene and set alight.

Rafi told the story to her brother in an ambulance on the way to the hospital and he recorded her testimony on his mobile phone. She died four days later in a Dhaka hospital with burns covering 80% of her body.

Why exactly would a US feminist ever wear a hijab in a protest? To show solidarity with Muslims who burn feminists alive?

It boggles the mind.

Malcolm says
While California has physical space to even double our population, that is not the same as carrying capacity of infrastructure and financial resources.

Moreover, there's a relationship between crowding and quality of life. Even if infrastructure and services are scaled to match the population increase, there are diminishing returns on quality of life beyond a certain density. The same is true if the density is too low, also, but California definitely doesn't have that problem.

Good, then you will have no issues with Trump sending all illegals to CA sanctuary cities.

So funny how the same people who warn about Global Warming support unfettered population growth.

Workers instinctively understand that the masters want to diminish their power by bringing in new workers. This has ever been the case.

The severe shortage of able workers following the plague in England which killed many of them was what led to the Magna Carta; the rulers had to finally make a deal with the peasants or nothing would get done.

Sending workers to another country was a form of economic war engaged by the Japanese against Korea and China; Japan knew it had a lack of land, production and space for the teeming masses and sent more than a million Japanese to settle these areas which Japan actually took over completely for a period.

Trump may or may not remember history but it doesn't take a genius to see importing millions of workers surely can't benefit the American workers.

Patrick, pointing out Muslim murder of 200+ innocent people is just sort of mean. Unless you have a brain and realize that’s just calling it what it is.

Liberals and MSM, what do you think?

sfchronicle always attacks prop 13. I notice the pattern, basically left attacks prop 13 non stop.

Who benefits from prop 13:
- people
- taxpayers
- working citizens

Who benefits from repeal of prop 13:
- government bureaucrats and their friends

It didn't cause shortage, it only allowed people to keep their homes at a time when unions were skyrocketing taxes to give themselves ever increasing pensions and wages. Old people were losing houses because taxes were higher than mortgages for many. It was true liberal insanity, and prop 13 fixed it.

What causes shortages isn't prop 13, it's lack of building. And lack of building comes from regulation and restrictions on building. Repealing prop 13 will just make housing cost more, it won't make more houses. Liberals like to ignore reality when it doesn't fit their talking points.

Russia intervened in the 2016 election to hurt Clinton and help Trump, and did so in a systematic manner. Trump's people welcomed this and one can make a strong case they still do

I believe Russia intervened in the election to sow chaos like we are seeing now. Putin and Russia probably can't believe how successful they have been at dividing our country. It is amazing Trump has gotten anything accomplished domestically or internationally in the last 2 years. The amount of bullshit with this fake scandal and investigation would have paralyzed most other presidents.

Trump campaigned on a strong military, pulling out of the Iran Deal, securing our borders and greatly expanding America's energy production. In what universe are we to believe Putin would prefer Trump and the big oil/big military Republicans as opposed to Clinton and the Democrats who have campaigned on basically de-industrializing America and giving Russia and OPEC majority control over the world's energy supplies?

Trump is actually doing a fantastic job, objectively speaking.

Sure, his personality is out there, but his accomplishments just keep piling up, though you'd never know it from the mainstream media.

He has been treated far worse than Obama ever was. By miles.

From Marcus' Politico quotes:

There are many reasons, including fear of personal embarrassment, to explain why the president might have tried to impede the special counsel’s investigation.

Notice "MIGHT" have tried. Not did.

Mueller’s team “found multiple acts by the President that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations.”

Notice, "WERE capable", not did.

You are grabbing at straws, Marcus.
