  • Farmers: Trump 'terrible for agriculture'

    "There are growers out there screaming for labor," said Castañeda, a farm labor contractor in San Luis Obispo County in central California. "The people who are coming in are doing the work that not a single American would like to do."

    But what is the reality of the claims that growers are out there screaming for Labor? How many? What is the timetable? Is it all year round? What are the alternatives for labor sources?

    The statement that there is work that not a single American will do does not ring true to me.

    Is there a management plan or analysis of the situation? Or are we supposed to believe the anecdotal information because it is easy to believe?

    How does the system work now? What plans do they have for outlining and accommodating future needs?

  • Shock Poll: 59% Back Trump On Deportation of Illegals

    Immigration: When Donald Trump proposed mandatory deportation of illegal aliens, pundits and politicians on both sides of the political aisle were appalled. But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side.

    Just what is in the current law in connection with the deportation of illegal aliens?

    I thought that they were supposed to be deported and that the laws were being ignored by the government.

  • NYT's Barro: 'Massive' Gun Grab Only Way To Impact Violent Crime

    Forget about expanded background checks or other such measures. The only way to have a "big impact on violent crime," according to Barro, is to emulate Australia and "really take away massive amounts of guns that people have, reduce the rate of gun ownership substantially."

    Is there a word for "beyond stupid?"

    So Josh wants to take away your guns and the guns of other law abiding citizens because it is easy to do. But ensuring that the mentally unstable and criminals have no guns is hard to do. So do the easy thing, and join all the leftists in the world who want to disarm the citizenry so the criminals and Democrats can have their way.

    Businesswoman turned politician Carly Fiorina is angry with CNN. The reason? The network is likely to leave her out of its prime time debate because she’s supposedly not polling in the top 10.

    Figures do not lie, but liars figure. The only reason CNN would insist on using an out-of-date poll is because there is someone on that older poll that they want to keep in the running.

    Rising seas will have "profound impacts" around the world, said Michael Freilich, director of NASA's Earth Science Division.

    Certainly when temperatures were rising there was more melting of ice sheets, but what has been going on over the last ten years? What assumptions about global warming do you have to make for the sea level to rise one foot?

    Does recent global (satellite) data on the Earth's temperature support such a claim? What are the sources and history of global surface temperature and ice growth and melting?

    These leftists almost always have the same solution to take away your guns because some crazy person started shooting people.

    Why does McAuliffe not look into the circumstances of the killing, see what gun was used, how the perp got the gun, was it legal, did the perp have mental problems, a criminal history, etc.

    Criticizing Kelly for her gotcha questions and apparent vendetta is fair game.

    I did watch the clip on the web. Kelly needs another time out to think about how to be a journalist newscaster.

    Her hostile demeanor and gotcha questions do nothing but waste everybody's time. Demanding a yes/no answer for a hypothetical situation is far from an intelligent assessment of the problems and potential solutions on how to deal with the continuing flood of illegal immigrants and abject and total failure of our government to enforce the law.

    The leftists want to jump on the practicality of how are we going to deport 20 million illegals. Instead she should realize and acknowledge that common sense says to stop the leak first. Get rid of illegal alien gang members and convicted criminals in our jails. Stop them from coming back when they have been deported.

    Then take the time needed to deal with the illegal aliens in an orderly fashion after the leakage has been stopped.

    Instead, like other leftists in the media Kelly and her ilk want to make up gotcha questions so they can congratulate one another on how clever they are. Those days are over now that we have "adult supervision" in the room.

    There's no doubt in my mind that the big push for Third World immigration isn't driven by demand for labor at all. It's driven by the need for new customers.

    Third world immigration is driven by the desire of the Democrats, socialists, and communists to get enough voters to take over this country until it collapses economically after they get rich.

    Traditional red states are turning blue; look at Virginia. Fairfax County in northern Virginia has a large population of Democrats who absolutely wipe out the rest of the state.

Perhaps she does not know the difference between illegal aliens and legal immigrants. Perhaps Warren has no sense of humor to know when someone is kidding.

    When speaking about the higher energy prices caused by the administration’s climate regulations on power plants, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy said, “We know that low-income minority communities would be hardest hit.”

    Like Hillary Clinton, she wants to force her version of what is good for our country on the middle class even if it destroys them.

    Republicans opened their debate season Thursday in Cleveland and produced the beginning of the beginning for a Carly Fiorina surge and the beginning of the end for a Donald Trump campaign.

    This looks like more wishful thinking.

    Those who are afraid of Trump keep grabbing at straws and wanting him to go away.

    Donald Trump is exactly the leadership this country needs to become great again.

    Carly Fiorina and former Gov. George Pataki (R-NY) chimed in late Friday evening, and several other candidates added their voices on Saturday.

    Why are these people so afraid of Donald Trump? They are taking themselves out of the running by acting so un-Presidential.

    They are certainly pleasing Obama, the Democrats, and the GOPe.

    "Mr. Trump: There. Is. No. Excuse," she tweeted, adding: "I stand with @MegynKelly."

    Big mistake, Carly!

    Just what would you say or have Mr. Trump say?

    Please look into the facts and context before you jump in. It makes you look second rate.

    This week was the 70th anniversary of the United States nuking Hiroshima and as expected, there has been plenty of second guessing, attacks on America, and claims that nuking the Japanese wasn’t necessary.

    The nuking was necessary to save the lives of the POWs that were located on the island of Japan. Given the other strategic reasons for the bomb, there is little doubt that President Truman made the correct decision.

    Trump’s battles with Kelly will probably further burnish the anchorwoman’s reputation as a tough-as-nails television star.

    Megan Kelly is such a small-minded person.

    Megan Kelly certainly demonstrated that she is small minded at the debate last night.

    I do not watch tv, so I am not that familiar with Megan Kelly. When visiting relatives with cable, I would see her once in awhile, and once in awhile on the Internet. She seemed easy to watch because she is pretty, but she was tough but biting as an anchor.

    After yesterday I agree with Donald Trump that she is a "Bimbo."

    Here are more opinions from a different source Politico [with excerpts and links to other sources]

    Boy, those Politico commenters sound like Harpies! They sure want you to think with a disordered mind!

    They could have written most of their comments before the debate started.
