Speaking of 1965, another pivotal event was the Hart-Cellar immigration act.

Thanks, didn't know about that:

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, also known as the Hart–Celler Act, is a federal law passed by the 89th United States Congress and signed into law by President Lyndon B. Johnson. The law abolished the National Origins Formula, which had been the basis of U.S. immigration policy since the 1920s. The act removed de facto discrimination against Southern and Eastern Europeans, Asians, and other non-Northwestern European ethnic groups from American immigration policy.

The National Origins Formula had been established in the 1920s to preserve American homogeneity by promoting immigration from Northwestern Europe. During the 1960s, at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, this approach increasingly came under attack for being racially discriminatory. With the support of the Johnson administration, Senator Philip Hart and Congressman Emanuel Celler introduced a bill to repeal the formula. The bill received wide support from both northern Democratic and Republican members of Congress, but strong opposition from Southern Republicans and Democrats, the former mostly voting Nay or Not Voting. This issue served as an inter-party commonality amongst constituents and reflects the similar Congressional District and Representative voting patterns. President Johnson signed the Hart–Celler Act into law on October 3, 1965. In opening entry to the U.S. to immigrants other than Northwestern European and Germanic groups, the Act significantly altered immigration demographics in the U.S.[1] Some sources assert that this alteration was intentional;[4] others assert that it was unintentional.[6]

I worry slightly about her too, but compared to any nominee by Democrats, I'll take her.

About 5 years ago I worked on Market Street in SF and used to go to a cafe there each morning before work. Among many other very odd things (like a homeless guy walking up to me with a purple plastic scimitar and waving it at me) I saw another homeless guy go into the cafe and carefully look through the sandwiches before picking one he liked and just walking out. No one did anything to stop him.

Later I did hear the manager yell at another homeless guy doing the same thing, but again, he just took what he wanted and left.

The cafe is now out of business.

I wonder if Polish genetics also contributes to that. They have the highest percentage of Polish people in the US, and they tend to be pretty big.

A federal judge Wednesday sentenced Erik Quiroz Razo, 28, to 21 months in prison for aiding the flight of the accused killer of Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh.

A jury in September convicted Razo and another man of helping Paulo Virgen Mendoza, 33, avoid capture during a 55-hour manhunt after the shooting on Dec. 26, 2018. They are among several people with ties to Mendoza who were prosecuted in U.S. District Court in Fresno.

Razo is an undocumented immigrant from Michoacán, Mexico, who was living in Merced when the shooting happened, a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Authorities said Razo helped Mendoza hide his truck after the shooting, drove him to various locations, and got rid of his loaded gun.

“This defendant, a convicted felon and previously deported alien, played a critical role in helping a man accused of killing a police officer to elude apprehension,” U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott said in the release. “He disposed of the murder weapon, and he urged those close to him to not tell anyone about his activities.”

The District Attorney’s Office will seek the death penalty against the man accused of fatally shooting Newman police Cpl. Ronil Singh the day after Christmas in 2018.

“After thoughtful consideration, deliberation, and much consultation with the victim’s family and their wishes, we are seeking the death penalty in this special circumstance murder case,” Chief Deputy District Attorney Jeff Mangar said in an email to The Bee.

He made the announcement in court last week during a hearing for Paulo Virgen Mendoza.

Also during the hearing, Judge Ricardo Córdova denied a motion by defense attorney Stephen Foley to put off Mendoza’s preliminary hearing, which is scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Illegals murder Americans.

Illegals murder American policemen.

Biden supports illegal immigration to please employers who want to drive down wages.

Kamala is the same, or worse.

Trump is the right choice to end the murder of Americans by illegals, and the suppression of US wages by illegals.

Employers who employ illegals should be subject to mandatory ten year prison sentences.

The role of Islam in France was once again under the spotlight on Thursday after right-wing daily Le Figaro published the results of an opinion poll that suggested 43 percent of French people believe the religion is a “threat” to national identity.

Six out of ten French people believe the influence of Islam in France is “too big” and 43 percent see the religion as a “threat” to national identity, according to the results of an opinion poll published on Thursday.

They are right about that threat, but one should also keep in mind the threat of being murdered by Muslims because they are Muslim.

Islam demands the murder of all who refuse to convert or pay the jizya ransom, as well as all who tell the truth about Mohammed's crimes, even if they quote the Koran and Hadith to tell that truth.

Mohammed robbed caravans, raped captives, and murdered anyone who spoke out against him.

"Where's Homer?"

You mean the three absent daddies?

Wow, just keeps getting better.

And yet it is based in reality. Would be interesting to see actual stats of number of fathers per woman by race.

It may well be true that black people are genetically inclined to a mother + maternal grandmother system of raising children. To even suggest that is "racist" but race is very real.

Perceptive comment from another forum:

When 4.4 million Californians can vote for the GOP presidential candidate in
2016 and not have their votes "count", when their votes alone, even as 31% of
the CA electorate, outnumber those cast for president in 40 other states....
something is busted. A similar imbalance in the other direction in Florida and
Texas. It's messed up.

I'm getting antsy to short TSLA.... its at 1715 today. Holy shit, look at that 1yr

How about buying puts instead of shorting? Then your downside is limited to what you buy them at, but the upside is the same.

I tripled my money on TSLA and got out because I thought it was overvalued, then it doubled. I really don't understand it, but shouldn't complain.

If a $400 strike costs you $100, the company needs to go down to $300 before you even just recoup the purchase price.

True. Options is a tough game played by smart people, but at least the downside is capped. When you short, you can really get taken to the cleaners.

Historical evidence does not support the absent dad as genetic. Before the welfare system emasculated low income dads, Black illegitimacy was rather low. Also, rural Whites have gone down the path of collecting welfare in lieu of a husband. Add to that England. which also has a very generous dole system that caters to young knocked up women, who are overwhelmingly White.

I'm sure there are huge differences over time and across regions, but there always seems to have been a racial difference as well:

The largest difference seems to correspond with the rise of feminism in the 1960's and 70's.

The White House, in response, described Taylor as a “low level, disgruntled former staffer.” Taylor was the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) chief of staff under former Secretary John Kelly, although his NY Times article gave the impression that he was a higher-level employee inside the White House. “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” is the title of the article, published in September 2018.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows wrote on Twitter that the reveal was unimpressive. ...

The White House press secretary’s office responded on Oct. 28 to Taylor’s revelation, saying he is “a liar and coward who chose anonymity over action and leaking over leading.”

“He was ineffective and incompetent during his time as DHS Chief of Staff, which is why he was promptly fired after only serving in this role for a matter of weeks,” the statement continued. “It is appalling that a low-ranking official would be granted anonymity, and it is clear the New York Times is doing the bidding of Never-Trumpers and Democrats.”

Islam is the religion of murder.

Islam does not belong in the West at all.

Fuck the Republicans. Vote for Trump.

Trump really is his own party.

He is a better Democrat that most Democrats by supporting labor, working to limit illegals and outsourcing to China.
