    Good. They should do their very best to understand and analyze the charges and evidence.

    Strzok fired

    Strzok is a human being and I'm sure he has his opinions, just like every other FBI agent. And he's probably even a smart human being because he thought Trump was the anti-christ and unfit for office. But if he didn't play it fair and square he should be fired, end of story.
  6. All fine points. I think the moral of this story is wage growth, standard of living, etc. is very hard to parse out. There's a lot of moving parts and is quite complicated. But Akkula does bring up important points, as well as CPslograd, but they're parts of the bigger picture.
  7. A ton more debt, too. The amount of credit available to today's consumers is mind boggling when compared to our young parents.
  8. Lot of un-american dummies running around, that's for sure. I saw this the other day, too. Can you believe over 80% of Republicans still approve of Trump?

    Omarosa On 'Meet The Press' ???

    We needed Donald Trump to drain the swamp of corruption and incompetence, but when the same or much worse horseshit is done by Trump the preferred defense is claiming that everyone else does it, too.
  11. Stephen Miller and the chain migration in his family. https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2018/08/13/stephen-miller-is-an-immigration-hypocrite-i-know-because-im-his-uncle-219351 et me tell you a story about Stephen Miller and chain migration. It begins at the turn of the 20th century, in a dirt-floor shack in the village of Antopol, a shtetl of subsistence farmers in what is now Belarus. Beset by violent anti-Jewish pogroms and forced childhood conscription in the Czar’s army, the patriarch of the shack, Wolf-Leib Glosser, fled a village where his forebears had lived for centuries and took his chances in America. He set foot on Ellis Island on January 7, 1903, with $8 to his name. Though fluent in Polish, Russian and Yiddish, he understood no English. An elder son, Nathan, soon followed. By street corner peddling and sweatshop toil, Wolf-Leib and Nathan sent enough money home to pay off debts and buy the immediate family’s passage to America in 1906. That group included young Sam Glosser, who with his family settled in the western Pennsylvania city of Johnstown, a booming coal and steel town that was a magnet for other hardworking immigrants. The Glosser family quickly progressed from selling goods from a horse and wagon to owning a haberdashery in Johnstown run by Nathan and Wolf-Leib to a chain of supermarkets and discount department stores run by my grandfather, Sam, and the next generation of Glossers, including my dad, Izzy. It was big enough to be listed on the AMEX stock exchange and employed thousands of people over time. In the span of some 80 years and five decades, this family emerged from poverty in a hostile country to become a prosperous, educated clan of merchants, scholars, professionals, and, most important, American citizens. What does this classically American tale have to do with Stephen Miller? Well, Izzy Glosser is his maternal grandfather, and Stephen’s mother, Miriam, is my sister.
