      Some parts of L.A. are a bit like Detroit, other parts are more like the marginal parts of Third World countries. There’s been a huge cost to L.A. from reducing the manufacturing base while inviting large numbers of lower-skilled people to come here illegally in order to gain political power. I know I linked an article describing manufacturing’s decline in L.A. and the forces involved, but I can’t find it at my site. I can do a more extensive search if anyone’s interested. But, rest assured, this list is something the city could use as a way to gloss over the huge problems we have.

      Obama letting Ebola into the U.S. has personal costs for both the victims and their families. Hopefully they’ll make out OK. In addition to the personal costs Obama inflicted on the U.S. by allowing Ebola into the U.S., it will also have financial costs: lawsuits, lost business for hospitals, lost productivity, and on and on. We’re talking millions, perhaps billions of dollars if the NYC doctor spread it to others. Can we send these worthies a bill for the costs of something they’re laughing about?

      “Not being permitted to accept a job or internship due to your immigration status”? The alternative would be very loose or open borders, something the vast majority of Americans don’t want. Regarding DACA, it allows illegal aliens (which they still are) to move up in the job market. That is, before DACA someone could only work in a small, non-chain restaurant. After DACA, that same person can find a job at McDonald’s. That means that those illegal aliens can compete with a whole new group of Americans, driving down wages and driving many out of work. That’s great for foreign citizens, but horrible for American citizens. FWD is from Zuckerberg of Facebook. Don’t let oligarchs like him fool you: the goal is to wages for Facebook and other hi-tech companies.

      If I were in ND, WI, etc., ja, sicher, youbetcha. It’s not surprising that these supposed incidents are defined as only affecting “people of color”. Things like this are to a good extent just another power play, an attempt to make whites feel guilty in order to obtain more power. Whether those things pictured actually happened doesn’t really matter, nor does the fact that some “hate crimes” esp. on campuses turn out to be fake. What’s important is that they could have happened or might have happened to someone else some time.

      My FB comments only appear when I log in to FB, so either BuzzFeed ghosted them or hasn’t approved them. So, let’s see if the same happens using this system. To the comment that TC is an immigrant, I wrote: TC was born a US citizen, he’s not an immig. Some people try to claim that being an immigrant means you can’t oppose letting anyone else in. If you think about that, does it make any sense? Does being allowed to join a group mean that you have to allow everyone else to join? What would be the impact on the U.S. of letting everyone come here? I also left this comment: TC is more on the activists’ side than most Americans: he wants to legalize most illegal aliens, he wants 2x more legal immig., and he wants 5x more H|B. He doesn’t want to put the first group on the “path”, but that means little. If the first group is legalized, the Dems are going to work to put them on the “path” and they’ll succeed. Anyone who thinks we’d have millions of legal workers in the U.S. who could never get on the “path” year after year is living in a fantasy world. So, aside from perhaps slight disagreements over specific numbers, Ted Cruz, Obama, and the activists are all on basically the same side.

      “I think there are a lot of everyday Americans who are now feeling the effects of what [Romney] said was going to happen, unfortunately.” The 47% just didn’t know what was good for them. Oh, well, that will teach them to listen to their betters. But, seriously, those quoted above are admitting their own failure and the failure of their candidate. If they weren’t incompetent, they would have been able to strike back against MSM mocking of Mitt. For instance, *immediately* after Mittens said “self-deport”, the Dems launched into a mocking campaign. Did Mittens and his advisors strike back by pointing out how that’s an old concept and that there’s strong evidence it would work (see http://24ahead.com/s/attrition )? No, they didn’t. They backed away from it because they felt some heat. That was a perfect opportunity to a) promote good policy, and b) point out how childish many of Mitt’s leading opponents are. Instead of doing that, Mitt and his advisors folded. The further any of them are from public life, the better.
