FOX NEWS: Amb. Bolton on breakdown of Americanization of immigrants

Increasingly I'm beginning to see a difference between diversity & multiculturalism. Multicultuarlism is beginning to look like a farce why should we admit into this nation people from other nations who don't in any way share American values. Why should we allow an Islamic fundamentalist who has little respect or certainly contempt for the free society here in the United States. [VIDEO]

ONE OBSERVATION FROM STEVEN CROWDER'S RECENT CHANGE MY MIND EPISODE. On this occasion he wants to have a civil discussion over whether or not there are only two genders. There were only two men who may not necessary disagree with the idea that there are more than two genders, but haven't exhibited the same passion as one non-binary person who sat down with Crowder. And check out the unprovoked attack by a woman who refers to Crowder as scum.

If this is how you respond to someone with a reasoned and contrarian view by not shaking their hand and getting heated during a discussion shows that you're largely not going to be able to win a debate over this. Also if you go out of your way to use an expletive and refer to someone as scum who share a reasoned & contrarian view is also going to lose an argument. [VIDEO]

I SAW SOME OF TRUMPS COMMENTS IN JACKSON, MS SATURDAY. Watched it live on FOX News and it was noted that there were people who chose not to attend because of Trump being there. Apparently this includes the Mayor of Jackson where a new civil rights museum held a grand opening where the President spoke. And as we see from The Root the belief is that the President is the "white supremacist in chief".

THEY'RE TRYING TO BRING BACK PILGRIM BAPTIST CHURCH ON CHICAGO'S SOUTH SIDE

It's a long time in coming too since the church was gutted by a bad fire in 2006. The outside structure remains and sadly it got caught up in a scandal that involved our Ousted governor Rod Blagojevich. There were some funds he attempted to send to rebuild this historic church unfortunately there was a bizarre mixup and they never got the money though I'm glad they're finally getting some love now. [VIDEO]

REASON: A Libertarian Builds Low-Cost Private Schools for the Masses

Now I hear in this vid - published in February 2017 - that Thales Academy is hoping to bring their low-cost private school to the states of Florida, Georgia & Tennessee.

OVER AT MY OTHER BLOG QUENTIN TARANTINO IS LOOKING TO DO A RATED R VERSION OF STAR TREK. Don't know how I as a "Trekkie" feel about this, but it will be most interesting and if it's made and released will likely watch to see how it is. Besides many "Trekkies" were concerned about the 2009 Star Trek and I supported that as well.
MARK STEYN ON TUCKER LAST NIGHT: The Conyers are very strange people

It starts off very hilariously enough although I'm disappointed that Steyn didn't even discuss the elder Conyers' wife Monica. Although her political career is over she's also a character in her own right. Wow! [VIDEO]

NEWSALERT: What Happened to the American Boomtown?

From a NY Times article:
The places that are booming in size aren’t the economic boomtowns — the regions with the greatest prosperity and highest productivity. In theory, we’d expect those metros, like the Bay Area, Boston and New York, to be rapidly expanding, as people move from regions with high unemployment and meager wages to those with high salaries and strong job markets.

That we’re not seeing such a pattern suggests that something is fundamentally amiss. The magnets aren’t working.

House Votes To Allow Concealed Carry Across State Lines. Some people are arguing that Congress lacks the power to do this under the Commerce Clause, though I’d be prepared to argue that it’s Heart of Atlanta Motel for guns, where the issue is opening up travel against state barriers. But Congress also has the power to provide for the arming of the militia, and this should qualify under that. Perhaps I’ll write a longer treatment of that topic, but for now I leave fleshing it out as an exercise for the reader.
