Trump's prison reform thing is pretty liberal. I'm opposed to it but it is a pandering thing.

I could make a better case than liberals that DJT can't solve the problems he's been talking about. lol

We all know that Trump and his lickspittle cult (Klan?) members are the primary disgraces of the century - bigly and globally.
the Klan's run in this country was when Democrats were in power.

Klan is nothing but a few shock artists now trying to get the media worked up.

Longtime leftwing Democratic Senator, Robert Byrd, was a member of the KKK in his youth.

You can get drugs in prison. Drugs have been getting into the prisons for decades. Prison locks up drug users, but it doesn't prevent new ones. Look at what we have with meth and fentanyl. No one has asked why drugs in in demand.

California's been losing a lot of people. It is no 1 or no. 2 in people moving out.

the south is the fastest growing region in economic growth and population growth yet liberals always disparage it.

California's a huge state in land area with the only real beach area on the west coast and nice weather so it has natural advantages.

but obviously there are a lot of people living there that don't have it made. that's why there's human feces and drug needles all over the streets in the downtowns.

Trump should become Gov of California. They are both embarrassing to the rest of the nation. They were made for each other.

if we shut down the flow of drugs over the border, less young people will get hooked b/c it will be harder for drug cabals to get the drugs in.

it is worth trying at least.

If you reduce the availabibility of drugs, it should reduce poverty and poor health and crime and perhaps help students do better in school.

Republicans have always rightly seen drugs as the core of problems in the country but yet Democrats say we are responsible for problems in red states.

red states can't close the border without blue state support.


A Mollie Tibbets might still be alive today if we had a border.

California pols have opposed a wall in California.

we have a party today who is okay with the country being less safe, more poor, with more drugs because it recognizes illegals are likely Democrat voters.

Actually, the state that lost the largest share of its population was Wyoming. After Wyoming:
West Virginia, Illinois, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Louisiana, and North Dakota.

The states that gained the most (percentage):
1) Idaho
2) Nevada
3) Utah
4) Washington
5) Florida
6) Arizona
7) Texas
8) Colorado

And is one of the leanest in the nation.

The Most & Least Obese States in America

#47 California


Not only are California’s older residents among the leanest in the nation, a 2013 CDC report found that California was among one of the 18 states that experienced a decline in obesity rates among 2- to 4-year-olds from low-income families.

California has the fourth lowest adult obesity rate in the nation

When California first boomed, it was Republican at the time.

the same is true of all the boom towns in the south, they were towns with a ton of Republican transplants.

liberals from other regions only started moving to the New South boom towns after the Republican transformation of the south to an industrialized region.

It IS kind of funny to watch them try to come up with an explanation of the high housing prices. Either the market is wrong or California is a pretty attractive place, and neither thought is allowable in the conservative mind.
