    Denver just decriminalized public defecation in order to make life easier for immigrants and the homeless. After decriminalizing defecating on sidewalks, the Chamber of Commerce will probably rename Denver as the “Mile High Pile City.”No Board of Health? That’s how diseases spread. Now every time I think of Denver I will see visions of poop and other body fluids on the sidewalk. People are required to dispose of dog poop and Denver is letting humans defecate any where they please.What’s disturbing as well is that they also decriminalized camping out on private land. So now you can go out to get...
  • Americans Spend More Than Expected as Holiday Season Heats Up

    Americans Spend More Than Expected as Holiday Season Heats Up November retail sales up 0.8% from prior month; economists saw 0.3% increase By Sharon Nunn Updated Dec. 14, 2017 1:40 p.m. ET 27 COMMENTS WASHINGTON—Americans are spending more this holiday season than analysts expected, fueled by income gains, confidence in the economic outlook, buoyant financial markets and modest inflation. That includes spending at brick-and-mortar stores such as Walmart Inc. and Nordstrom Inc., which clocked the largest year-over-year November sales increase in seven years. Home-furnishing stores, electronics and appliance stores also posted strong spending numbers, despite competition from online shopping websites,...
  • Nearly a year after Trump's election, both sides think they're losing

    MSN ^ | October 24, 2017 | David Lauter, Tribune Washington Bureau
    Nearly a year after the election of a president who promised Americans would win so much they would grow "tired of winning," a funny thing has happened in American politics — both sides think they're losing. That lose-lose mood, which is on display daily on Capitol Hill, is strongly reinforced by a study of public opinion released Tuesday by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center. More than 6 in 10 Americans say they believe their side is losing more than it's winning on the issues that matter most; only about 1 in 4 think their side is mostly winning. That attitude...

    Donald Trump: "We must remember that American children dream too" Nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants currently live within our borders. That’s 11 million people living in the shadows whom we know next to nothing about. —Congressman Steve Israel, D-NY A “Fair Share” for the Shadows Progressives consistently claim that many American’s aren’t paying their fair share. Eating the Rich supposedly solves income inequality in every socialist utopia, yet as Jerry Brown and his progressive comrades have proven, eating the rich through higher taxes and progressive economic and open-border policies, have equalized income by making more Californians poor and dependent.

    When Columbus first landed in Cuba and Puerto Rico in 1492-93, he and his crew were met and surrounded by the happy and ecstatic Indians, who consisted the absolute majority of the American continent’s population. I did not find a single Indian on the island back in 1975, though there were lots of the monuments of both Indian men and women in Guama (Matanzas), a well-known Indian village in Cuba. When I, then a 14-year-old youngster, who was full of impressions from those books and westerns, where the chiefs like Chingachgook and Geronimo were the heroes, same as their opponents,...
  • Why Americans can blame pirates for not using the metric system

    09/19/2017 4:01:46 PM PDT · by BBell · 157 replies
    The proposal, conceived by a bunch of pointy-headed Parisian philosophes, sounded brilliant: A universal system of measurement, derived from decimal-based units and identified by a shared set of prefixes. It would end the era of merchants buying goods according to one unit, selling in another, and pocketing the ill-gotten profit. It would simplify scientific calculations and enable the free exchange of ideas around the world. It was an enlightened system for an enlightened time. If only the French scientists could persuade other countries to adopt it. But pirates have a way of ruining even the best-laid plans. In 1793, botanist...

    Donald Trump’s tough talk on illegal immigration was a big part of the reason Dave Hagstrom and many others in this booming Phoenix suburb supported him for president. “Walls make good neighbors,” Hagstrom said. So when the president moved this week to cut a deal — with Democrats no less — to block the expulsion of 800,000 immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children, was Hagstrom disappointed? Not at all. “If you were to deport them, where would they go?” Hagstrom, 60, a car-warranty manager, asked on his way to a Bible-study dinner at an upscale shopping mall. “To...

    The cap that President Trump has refused to lift on H-2B visas has forced companies all over the United States to do the unthinkable and hire American workers! What’s worse is that they are complaining that they have to pay American workers more…Tell me again; didn’t someone say that immigration was good for Americans? Is this not irrefutable evidence that the low-skilled (or living in low-opportunity areas) workers are being squeezed out of the job market by workers who are willing to take a lower wage? Isn’t this known as wage-suppression? The fact that employers are hiring people as seasonal...

    While most Americans are gathering with family and community this weekend to celebrate the most exceptional country in the history of the world, Mr. Hope and Change is halfway around the world talking doom and gloom — and criticizing his successor.   Barack Obama visited Indonesia this weekend, and in a series of appearances, attacked love of country and the policies of Donald Trump. The Guardian reports:The former US president said some countries had adopted “an aggressive kind of nationalism” and “increased resentment of minority groups”, in a speech in Indonesia on Saturday that could be seen as a commentary...

    America belongs to immigrants because immigrants make the nation more powerful, says a former Wall Street Journal writer who is now working for the New York Times. Immigrants produce more babies, work harder, create more jobs, and have more ideas, claims the revealing column by immigration-advocate Bret Stephens: I speak of Americans whose families have been in this country for a few generations. Complacent, entitled and often shockingly ignorant on basic points of American law and history, they are the stagnant pool in which our national prospects risk drowning… Bottom line: So-called real Americans are screwing up America. Maybe they...

    A man has been charged with fatally shooting a Marine in the drive-thru of a McDonald's in Bedford, Indiana, according to police and NBC affiliate WTHR. Justin Lampkins, 25, was in a truck with his friends in line at the fast food restaurant early Saturday morning about 1:19 a.m., police say. The Marine Corps veteran was involved in a fight after “a horn was sounded” in the line and Evan Schaffer,22, got out of his car and punched Lampkins, WTHR reports. Police say it's unclear who honked the horn.

    Americans who have bought into this globalist agenda blindly and are trying to replace Americanism with Cultural Marxism and Islamo-fascism Western Europeans have been watching the vitriolic opposition to President Trump with great personal interest, wondering if Americans have lost their minds. Being the inveterate leftists that they are, even in the face of demographic suicide, they were rooting for a like-minded female socialist who vowed to turn the U.S. into the European basket case model of failed multiculturalism and diversity, flooding their countries with more and more Islamists in order to forever change the western culture into a Caliphate....

    Destroying the left-wing narrative For whatever reason, the voters of California have decided that Maxine Waters is the kind of crazy person they want to keep in Congress. I’m not sure why that is, but left-coasters also keep Pelosi employed so, clearly, there’s something in the water out there. Anyway, Ms. Waters hates Trump. She wants him impeached. She’s vowed to impeach him herself. On what grounds she intends to do this, no one seems to be sure.

    Anonymous sources within the FBI have revealed to The Times that they have new evidence indicating that everyone who voted for Donald Trump is an agent of the FSB (formerly the KGB). An unknown portion of these voters may have had their minds controlled by a Russian space-beam, agents close to the investigation say. The allegation that 62 million Americans appear to be employed by Russian intelligence services has rocked the Bureau, and it is reported that multiple agents have taken their own lives, given that realizing just how deep this Russian hacking conspiracy runs blew their minds – literally....

    As we search for answers as to why President Trump and his Transition Team were surveilled in November and December of 2016, and January 2017, we actually can go back to the Patriot Act. After 9-11 Americans were taken advantage of due to their fears of another 9-11 terrorist attack. The lawmakers had us right where they wanted us; thus, the Patriot Act was passed. Little did we know that we would have no privacy ever again. Remember FBI Director James Comey said the other day, “no one has any privacy.” The surveillance of Trump Team is a serious violation...
