1  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Science, Culture, & Humanities / Male to Perhaps Qualify as a Female Olympian on: Today at 09:35:28 AM
"HONOLULU, HI (KHNL) As sports organizations around the world continue to update their guidelines to make it easier for transgender athletes to compete with the gender they choose it’s becoming a controversial topic in Hawaii’s volleyball community.

“It’s a touchy subject because volleyball is a main sport here,” says Tia Thompson, a transgender athlete.

Born a male, Thompson knew at an early age something wasn’t right. She says she only hung out with girls and liked girl things.

“Because of my religious background with my dad’s side and my mom’s side, we didn’t speak of it, but we knew. As soon as I turned 18 and I moved out, I started transitioning and started taking hormones,” Thompson says.

The now 32-year old says volleyball has been the constant in a life full of changes. In January, she was just approved by USA Volleyball to compete as a woman. Before that, she was required to play in the men’s division at all USAV sanctioned events.

USAV requires transgender women to undergo hormone replacement therapy consistently for at least one year — with proper documentation — and they also have to change their identification, like passports and birth certificates, to female. Before, some organizations, including the Olympics, would require trans athletes to have sex reassignment surgery.

“It took me three years to finally get approved with all the transitioning and all the hormone therapy and submitting all my paperwork to the gender committee,” she said.

There has been some push back from the community. Players and parents we spoke to who did not want to be on camera say it’s not fair for teams with biological women because it creates an unrealistic level of competition."

Just over two months into President Trump's presidency, the Leftist media bashing President Trump constantly, Paul Ryan and his failings, Russia, golf, Britain and spying; and I still have absolutely no "buyer's remorse," when I consider what either of the socialist alternatives would have been.

This has gone on too long. Take the hit, end the regime on humanitarian grounds, reunite the peninsula... done deal. This has gone on long enough.

Even peacefully, reunification of Korea would be an epic economic and humanitarian crisis.

Undoubtedly. It made me think of the differences between the States and Mexico; cultural, economic, legal... and the two are much more closely tied in many ways than North and South Koreas' are, and the fact that the US and Mexico being drastly different. Still, it does make one think that maybe it's time to let the milk spill, and clean it up.

I have been thinking since you posted this, and it occurs to me; "we're both law enforcement, and have been for a while. Would either of us fail to execute an arrest warrant forr a murderer, just because it would throw a family or town into economic chaos?"

Kim Jong-un is no different. If it was me, he'd be gone so fast his head would spin, and (to me), we'd all collectively pick up the pieces afterwards, whatever they may be.

Obviously, it would cost a great many lives, but it is no different than what Europe suffered after WWII.

6  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: Tax Policy on: March 28, 2017, 12:05:33 PM
As you guys probably remember, my proposal was for this sort of tax REPLACING other taxes; that said I find the politics of this proposal intriguing , , ,

If it helps in a race to zero, I'm all for it.

Unfortunately, the point that had been brought here by others, is that the government has a terrible track record on relinquishing power or money.

Doug makes a great point on the budget. I have to think that perhaps we're spending far too much anyways.

I can say, that living here, going from 100K a year to 10,000 pesos a month, I live a higher quality of life than I did there in many ways. As soon as I finish law school, some lawyers in el DF, clear a million USD a year.

The problem isn't just the budget,,, it's the price of supporting people who (you rightly elude to on another thread), will not be productive because they make more not to be in terms of welfare.

We have to find a way to quit supporting people who simply will not support themselves. It isn't heartless, it's smart.

When that happens, a high quality of life will be less expensive, and there will be fewer people breeding for cash, because they won't be being rewarded for it.

Bring back the family model, stop encouraging divorce... women receive 90% of the welfare. That has to stop. It's destroying everything and everyone... even if it's through destroying society itself.

Why can I not be justifiably angry that so many people in this country are getting something for nothing while I struggle for 5 months a year to pay for it.  Why do I NEVER have a voice?  Why is there no one who will stand up for me?  Why am I always taken for granted?  

[...]These are the people who day in and day out pay INTO a system and never get ANYTHING back and are constantly forced to hear about everyone else's sob stories.  All the other "victims" and identity BS.


Hear, hear.

Addressing another point from ccp: 
...Why can I not be justifiably angry that so many people in this country are getting something for nothing while I struggle for 5 months a year to pay for it.  Why do I NEVER have a voice?  Why is there no one who will stand up for me?  Why am I always taken for granted? ...


ccp, You (we) will NEVER win the political argument that taxes are unfair to the productive and relatively well-paid.  It has to be won on the other side of it.  Big government and all these spending programs are hurting the beneficiaries.  Look at the inner city, the war on poverty and the cycle of dependence and perpetual low income created.  With SSI, Section 8, food stamps, FAFSA and on and on including Obamacare, recipients essentially enter a contract with the government to stay poor or lose benefits.  As the benefits get larger and larger, the contract to be permanently low income becomes unbreakable.


Nature's Law... "Produce or get smashed."

Take away every safety net and let Nature run its course.

I'm saying that knowing that I full well, paid for years, to support my political opponents. I have no wish in doing so, and I'm not apologetic about it. I worked two full time jobs for over a year, in the States, only to never see my daughter and have most of it seized in taxes, to go support a breeding factory that gets compensated accordingly for being more productive, who will all grow into votes that are cast directly against my interest. No thanks.

Let them find work of starve. Everyone on this thread has to. I have no pity and it isn't because I've worked here. It's just common sense. By the way, I purposely left race out of that. I don't care who it is.

This is why I chuckle at "gun" laws.

It would not be difficult for anyone, with any training at all, to take down a small group, and even less, if you infiltrated them as a supporter.

They look like 9,000 pounds of dogs..t... hoping for something they really don't want.

I'm not even being arrogant or overconfident. That's really the truth of it.

This WILL all come to a head sooner or later though. Historically speaking, it always has.
12  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Crimea on: March 27, 2017, 09:31:59 PM
I have to say... I'm loving the trend in the world right now.

I will look back in a few years here, to see if I still feel the same way.

EDIT: BTW.... The Crimeans aren't Ukrainian. They never have been. They are a distinct ethnic culture, and going back far enough, it wasn't anyones. Kruschev "gifted" it to the Ukrainian SSR, when the Soviet Union was still effective, and not as anything to do with a national sovereignty, with a right to their own constitutions and languages (investigate the differences between Russian federal entities (republics, and krays,) compared to those that don't (regions, districts, & 3 federal cities), listed in rank, and each having the capacity historically to be subjected the the preceding, with the exception of the federal cities. Crimea was "gifted" to the Ukrainian SSR as a matter of administrative convenience as well as personal convenience (being that Kruschev is Ukrainian).

The Crimea  is now recognized by Russia, as "The Republic of Crimea," which gives them several rights that they would not have under Ukrainian rule, amongst them, the right to their own constitution and a certain level of self governance and determination.

Also interesting, is the fact that this isn't the only problem Ukraine is having, as with the Donetsk People's Republic (also backed by Russia).

Just throwing that out there. It seems that Russia is a lot more willing, to give locals a lot more power than Ukraine is willing to do.

Thank you, to both of you.

Doug, I don't disagree at all.

I came across this gem this morning... it is only relevant because there is a government committee attached to it, capable of influencing policy.

"Lean in"? How about lean on?

Australian columnist Sarrah Le Marquand offers this winning strategy for getting more women into the workforce: Make it illegal to be a stay-at-home mom.

Or actually, since she's Australian, make it illegal to be a stay-at-home mum.

Yes, that's the headline for Le Marquand's latest column for the Sydney Daily Telegraph: "It Should be Illegal to Be a Stay-at-Home Mum."

And she's bluntly upfront about what she wants, which is unconditional surrender in the mommy wars:

Rather than wail about the supposed liberation in a woman’s right to choose to shun paid employment, we should make it a legal requirement that all parents of children of school-age or older are gainfully employed.
And here's the reasoning:

Only when the female half of the population is expected to hold down a job and earn money to pay the bills in the same way that men are routinely expected to do will we see things change for the better for either gender.
Only when it becomes the norm for all families to have both parents in paid employment, and sharing the stress of the work-home juggle, will we finally have a serious conversation about how to achieve a more balanced modern workplace.
Only when the tiresome and completely unfounded claim that “feminism is about choice” is dead and buried (it’s not about choice, it’s about equality) will we consign restrictive gender stereotypes to history.
So long as we as a nation cling to the lie that only a stay-at-home mum is best placed to assume the responsibilities of caregiver then working fathers will continue to feel insecure about stepping off the corporate treadmill to spend more time with their children.
Take that, Sheryl Sandburg!

Le Marquand's demand to arrest and imprison any woman who dares to spend her time baking after-school cookies for Junior and Sophie instead of slaving in a cubicle could become part of U.S. policy as well. The international Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, whose 35 members include the U.S., recently issued a report stating that nations could solve their labor-shortage problems by putting mothers to work full-time. (Part-time jobs, the kind of employment that many women with growing children prefer, apparently don't count in OECD-land.)

The report singled out Australia as a particularly egregious offender in the stay-at-home-mom department. News.com.au reported:

Employment rates of women with children in Australia are 9 per cent lower than those of all prime-aged women, the report declared.
Urging Australia to help this “untapped potential” into the Australian workforce, the OECD recommends the government adopt “facilitation of a better work-life balance” and focus and the provision of affordable childcare.
"Work-life balance"! Whether you like it or not.

The problem is with the Republicans

major majority and still probably can't get bill passed .  OF course *every single crat* is against.

I would like for it to pass for the sake of the party .  i don't love the bill but we need to get this first step passed.

As far as my point of view as a physician I have no care one way or another though .  It is all back and forth BS with me plodding on.



There sure are a lot of "Republicans" (cough)... from Blue (or almost Blue) states in the list of 29 who don't support the rest of the GOP.

Here are the House Republicans who are either against the bill or leaning against it. NBC News will update this list:

Jim Jordan (R-OH)

Mark Meadows (R-NC)

Justin Amash (R-MI)

Dave Brat (R-VA)

Raul Labrador (R-ID)

Mo Brooks (R-AL)

Rob Wittman (R-VA)

Thomas Massie (R-KY)

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL)

Jim Bridenstine (R-OK)

Louie Gohmert (R-TX)

John Katko (R-NY)

Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA)

Walter Jones (R-NC)

Ted Budd (R-NC)

Mark Sanford (R-SC)

Rick Crawford (R-AR)

Ted Yoho (R-FL)

Scott DesJarlais (R-TN)

Warren Davidson (R-OH)

Paul Gosar (R-AZ)

Rod Blum (R-Iowa)

Andy Harris (R-MD)

Dan Donovan (R-NY)

Frank LoBiondo (R-NJ)

David Young (R-IA)

Bold being solidly BLUE, Underlined being generally Blue except for the last presidential election, and italicized being true battleground states, showing at least 14 very problamatic people on that list that are either bold or underlined.

Edit: Extra Credit - I've seen brie cheese that wasn't as white as this list is.... kind of shoots the Democrat's "racist, Republican party" garbage, down in flames. There's not a miniority on that list...

Also... Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.... looks like Matt Farley's twin sister... maybe she "live(s) in a van down by the river."




19  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Science, Culture, & Humanities / Child Support Statistics on: March 22, 2017, 03:31:21 PM
Because he went to grocery store once:

http://www.countryliving.com/life/a42268/dad-buys-ex-groceries/

What a great guy:

 rolleyes



I have often wondered why the courts find it necessary to grant primary custody to the women, when women are 90% of welfare recipients and "require"  rolleyes child support.

Many men pay for everything during the marriage, with the wife not working at all, and receive almost no child support.

Given statistics of single mother households:

43% of U.S. children live without their father (U.S. Bureau of the Census).
63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services and U.S. Bureau of the Census).
90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes (U.S. Bureau of the Census).
85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes (Center for Disease Control).
80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26).
71% of pregnant teenagers lack a father (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services press release, March 26, 1999).
71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes (National
Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools).
70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988).
85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Department of Corrections, 1992).
61% of all child abuse is committed by biological mothers (Department of Health and Human Services Report on Nationwide Child Abuse).
90% of welfare recipients are single mothers (U.S. Bureau of the Census).


It is proven that single mothers fail enormously, and worse; fathers, societies and governments fund it all.

According the United States Department of Health and Human Services in a 2015 report to Congress, they collected 32.4 billion dollars [1], not counting interest and between $1-2 given to the states for every dollar collected.

It gets worse:

• An estimated 13.4 million parents lived with 22.1
million children under 21 years of age while the
other parent(s) lived somewhere else.

• One of every six custodial parents (17.5 percent)
were fathers. (Still speaks nothing to the rate at which women are awarded custody in divorces, and in fact, many states no longer even track divorces statistics, California - the leader - amongst them.)

• More than one-quarter (26.6 percent) of all children
under 21 years of age lived in families with only one
of their parents while the other parent lived elsewhere.
About half (48.1 percent) of all Black children
lived in custodial-parent families.

• Most custodial parents had one child (54.7 percent). (Where is the data for women with several children, but each from a different father?)

• The proportion of custodial mothers with income
below poverty (31.2 percent) was higher than that of
custodial fathers (17.4 percent). (Society requires men to actually work, and per the report, doesn't award men child suppot or welfare on the level it does to women - more gynocentrism.)

• Child support income accounted for over two-thirds
(70.3 percent) of the mean annual personal income
for custodial parents below poverty who received
full child support.

• About half (48.7 percent) of all custodial parents had
either legal or informal child support agreements,
and custodial mothers were more likely to have
agreements (52.3 percent) than custodial fathers
(31.4 percent)[2].  - (This doesn't make sense or line up with the USDHHS's stats, because they state in their report, that "Cases with Orders: 86%" [1] have been awarded... in fact, they track this metric in every single state, and actively seek child support judgements, even when none are requested by either parent, which means that the US Census Department's percentage in this criteria, is only about 1/2 what it should be.


Also, Figure 2. in the report from the Census Department (given the aggregate numbers involved - with women factoring in at a rate of 6 to 1, the percentages of women that do not work full time as men is alarming. The report refers to "13.4 million parents [...] referred to as custodial parents in this report," with 1/6 of the custodians being men, meaning, 2.345 million men are custodians, and 11.055 million are women. Of these:

2013 Percentages -

Men
1.58 million men work fulltime,
.483 million men work part time.
.281 million men are unemployed
(all as parents with custody)

Women
5.07 million women work fulltime.
3.41 million women work part time.
2.56 million women are unemployed (which is more than the entire amount of men that have custody).


To get a more comprehensive understanding, the national workforce should be examined.

The US Bureau of Labor states that 57% of women participate in the workforce [3], and that women and men are unemployed at 5.2% and 5.4% of the working age population [4], respectively. 23.2% of women with custody, are unemployed (which is an unemployed rate more than 9 times greater than men who have custody).

Of the 123 million women age 16 years and over in the U.S., 72 million, or 58.6 percent, were labor force participants—working or looking for work. Unemployed custodial mothers, make up more than 2% of the total female workforce which counts women ages 16 and older [5].

Of the 57 million women who are unemployed, unemployed, custodial mothers comprise 4.5%.

The Census Department states here that, in 2013, there are actually almost 8 times as many men paying child support than women, and that men pay almost 7 times the amount of child support that women do. They also state that in regard to custodial parents requesting assistance,  2.5 million women request assistance, compared to .3 million men (that is 8.33 times more often than men do)[6].

Nature has existed since the beginning of time, in a state of perpetual perfection unto itself, regardless of what man did or did not "think" about it, and it will continue to do so, for as long as man is or isn't here, man himself, being a part of the same system and just as subjective to nature as anything else.

Transgender Wins International Women’s Weightlifting Title


"Laurel Hubbard, a 39 year-old transgender who was born male, won her first international women’s weightlifting title in Australia breaking four national records in the process.

Hubbard beat the competition by 19 kilograms.

The New Zealand Herald reported:

Kiwi weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has dominated her first major competition, taking out the Australian International in Melbourne on a night she made history as the first transgender athlete to represent New Zealand.

Hubbard, 39, won the women’s over 90kg division at the Melbourne event, setting four unofficial national records in the process. Hubbard lifted a combined total of 268kg – 19kg better than silver medallist Iuniarra Sipaia of Samoa.

Australia’s Kaitlyn Fassina claimed the bronze medal with 223kg.

Hubbard looked visibly emotional as she lined up behind dais awaiting the official medal presentation. But she kept the tears at bay, smiling and waving as she stood atop the podium.

Earlier this month the Herald revealed Hubbard had been selected to make her international debut at the competition after usurping Rio Olympian Tracey Lambrechs at the top of the division."

There are a number of archiving sites. Some are more trustworty than others, Google - obvousily owning an "archiving" service.

The safest way is to create an archive and save it on your computer or a secondary hard-drive, memory stick, etc.

There are two problems:

1.) Archive.today won't save audio/video files.

2.) If you save the file on your computer, you won't be able to share it online with the ease that one shares a webpage, unless you have your own website (which isn't all that difficult, depending upon the complexity of the site), with the ease that one could share an existing webpage.

Doug, Tujon Crafty.... here the archive on reddit - http://archive.today/ - let's you archive a site IMMEDIATELY.

https://www.reddit.com/r/YouShouldKnow/comments/292z2b/ysk_about_archivetoday_a_website_that_lets_you/

There are a number of archiving sites. Some are more trustworty than others, Google - obvousily owning an "archiving" service.

The safest way is to create an archive and save it on your computer or a secondary hard-drive, memory stick, etc.

There are two problems:

1.) Archive.today won't save audio/video files.

2.) If you save the file on your computer, you won't be able to share it online with the ease that one shares a webpage, unless you have your own website (which isn't all that difficult, depending upon the complexity of the site), with the ease that one could share an existing webpage.

Other Options for archiving -

I don't know squat about Franken. I'll have to read up on it.

I concur completely about Google. I speak Russian and use Russian search engines frequently, and there is a huge difference between what google.com shows and that of rambler.ru or yandex.ru will give you as results. I've noticed it before.

This PDF report is not exhaustive, and generally covers convictions dating back to 1986, with one notable exception of one instance in 1948. It was last modified Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017 on the Amazon server.


Case Law and Statutes

From the Government's 2006 Election Assistance Commission:

Government "Consultants reviewed more than 40,000 cases that were identified using a series of search
terms related to voting fraud and voter intimidation. The majority of these cases came
from courts of appeal. This is not surprising, since most cases that are publicly reported
come from courts of appeal. Very few cases that are decided at the district court level are
reported for public review."

Partisan Media

From the Mainstream Media:

There are numerous news articles from Leftist news organizations that state the voter fraud is not a serious matter. There are so many, I won't attempt to list them here.


Observations

How is it then, that with more than 40,000 instances of voter fraud, the majority of which never appear before public scrutiny, that states such as Minnesota and Indiana alone, with a combined population of 12,153,005 people, which isn't even a 1/3 of the population of California, which has 39,250,017 people, not counting the largest illegal population in the country, can generate 147 different people convicted of voter fraud crimes; whereas California has generated only 19 people convicted?

To make matters even clearer:

Minnesota and Indiana have a total of 5,775,957 total ballots counted in the last election. California had 14,610,509 total ballots counted.
http://www.electproject.org/2016g

Minnesota and Indiana have generated 7.7368 times more PEOPLE convicted of voter related crimes than California has, while having less than a third of the population California has.

If we include New York's population (19,795,791) and people convicted (7) with California's, the totals are  59,045,808 people, with 22,397,390 ballots counted in the last election, with a historic prosecution of voter fraud of 26 convictions, a collective population 4.85 times greater than Minnesota and Indiana, 3.877 as many ballots per ballots cast in Minnesota and Indiana; yet, have only convicted 17% of the people Minnesota and Indiana have managed to?

Are California and New York, who collectively wield 86 electoral votes (honorable mention also goes to Illinois, who is the 5th largest state by population, heavy illegal population, and also does not prosecute voter fraud [11 people convicted] whilst having 21 electoral votes), compared to Minnesota's and Indiana's collective electoral value of 21.


I won't propose any rhetorical questions.

Wow. I've been sitting here investigating election oversight in Wisconsin. I should be focused on California.

There can be no doubt as to what party is driving this:

""We want to expand the opportunity," said Assemblyman Evan Low (D-Campbell), author of the constitutional amendment that would have to be approved by a statewide vote in 2018."

Still...before I start that, I want to see how many of the prosecutors that refuse to file charges against cases of voter fraud are Democrats.

32  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: More Voter Fraud on: March 14, 2017, 09:14:42 AM
It's important to note - this story was on Yahoo.com this morning, linking to a story by the Salt Lake Tribune (neither of which are fond of Trump), and are used as "proof" (the "comments" section on the SLT link reflects precisely that mindset), by the Left, that voter fraud on a massive scale isn't happening.

What this story and the other story posted previously fails to take into account, is that:

1.) The data isn't conclusive, nor is it even inclusive of every case.

2.) The stories posted here (including this one), only represent the states of Ohio and Wisconsin, and do not represent the major strongholds of Democrats, in which cases of voter fraud may not be being investigated fervently.


Madison, Wis. • Dozens of 17-year-olds voted illegally across Wisconsin during last spring's intense presidential primary, apparently wrongly believing they could cast ballots if they turned 18 ahead of the November general election, according to a new state report.

Wisconsin Elections Commission staff examined voter fraud referrals municipal clerks said they made to prosecutors following the 2016 spring primary and general elections. The commission is set to approve the findings during a meeting Tuesday and forward a report to the Legislature.

President Donald Trump has called for a "major investigation" into voter fraud and alleged that 3 million to 5 million people may have voted illegally in the November general election, a widely debunked claim. The report lists no instances of underage voters casting ballots in the general election.
 
Trump: "The press is making Obamacare look so good"
 
Republican Ted Cruz won the GOP primary in Wisconsin. Bernie Sanders won the Democratic contest. The state ultimately voted for Trump in the November general election, marking the first time a Republican presidential candidate had won Wisconsin since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

The report found at least 60 cases of 17-year-olds voting in the April primary in 29 counties. Kewaunee County referred nine people to prosecutors for voting as 17-year-olds, Rock County referred seven and Racine County referred five. Brown County referred what the report called "multiple" 17-year-olds to prosecutors. The report did not track charging decisions or for whom the 17-year-olds voted.

Commission spokesman Reid Magney said Monday that he'd never seen this issue crop up before. The teenagers were likely encouraged to go to the polls by messages flying around social media during the spring primary season saying 17-year-olds can vote in some states as long as they turn 18 before the November election, the report said.

Some political campaigns were also spreading false information about eligibility, the report said. The Sanders campaign specifically was sending out national messages on social media about 17-year-olds being able to vote in presidential primaries, Magney said, although Wisconsin election officials didn't see any misinformation from that campaign about Wisconsin.

No one under 18 can vote in any Wisconsin election, but 17-year-olds may have seen Sanders' messages and thought they could vote. Poll workers may not have understood the law or may not have been paying enough attention, he added.

"It wasn't a case of anyone sneaking in," Magney said. "It was a misunderstanding of the law."

Sanders campaign officials didn't immediately respond to an email Monday seeking comment.

Kewaunee County District Attorney Andrew Naze said he chose not to charge any of the 17-year-olds whom clerks referred to him. He said they honestly thought they were eligible to vote and didn't intend to break the law. Prosecutors in Rock, Racine and Brown counties didn't immediately respond to messages Monday.

The report noted that its findings aren't conclusive and it's possible other instances of suspected fraud may have been referred to prosecutors without the commission's knowledge or people may have filed complaints directly with district attorneys.


http://www.sltrib.com/home/5052118-155/story.html

It is obvious that voting in the primary is not the same as casting an official ballot in the presidential election. It does however, mean that minors were involving themselves in an election they had no right to, proving an important point as to the mindset of people in the country who clearly do not follow the law when it will benefit their political beliefs.

If this can be proven, regardless of the scale, and only in places where the desire to ferret out such cases exists, how many people without voting rights, are potentially voting?

There have been several instances in the United States, where elections are decided by very few ballots, and in some cases, even by single ballots.

Just this morning, there is another story in the new by Yahoo (https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/0ba276cc-b9c7-39cb-bd82-a00a566fc764/pregnant-guatemalan-mother-of.html), in which a Guatemalan woman who had come to the United States illegally at the age of 15, and has since had 5 children, is set to be deported. When the risks and rewards for illegal behavior are so high, the motive to vote illegally certainly exists. In places where voter fraud isn't investigated, and with Barrack Obama himself seemingly condoning illegal voting, the need for voter ID has already been established.

An extremely important aspect not mentioned in the story, is that the report mentions "minors" and not "non-citizens." How are they verifying going about the verification of citizenship? Who is on the investigative commission?

Valuable post there DDF!

Following up on the formation of the PRD-- I thought Munoz Ledo (from Team Louis Echeverria Alvarez) was the one behind that?


Tailwags Tujon GC.

I'm not certain, but I'll look it up and come back and edit the post. I'm about to leave the house for a few. I'll look it up within the next hour. Nepotism as GM rightly alludes to, seems to be a recurring theme in several countries.

Edit:  "In 1986, three PRI members – Rodolfo González Guevara, Porfirio Muñoz Ledo, and Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas – formed the Democratic Current, a political faction within the PRI." "The PRD was formed after the 1988 electoral fraud which sparked a movement away from the authoritarian rule of the PRI.[15] " https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Party_of_the_Democratic_Revolution

Actually.... we were just going over this in school yesterday.... Evidently, the PRI (until just before 1986, was an extremely leftist party... (the professor - a former senator here - and from the Left)... stated that the PRI switched over to the Right for $$$.

Amalia Garcia "After briefly being a member of the Socialist Mexican Party, she became a founding member of the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD) when it was created in 1989." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amalia_Garc%C3%ADa


Mexico, being as socialist as it is (and it is VERY much so, especially from an American perspective - example... everyone of our electricity bills from the Federal Electrical Commission, are heavily subsidized by the federal government, where they pay for a healthy portion of it... and several other examples... EXCEPT in medical care.... that's horrible for those that don't have insurance from work... go figure," has several powerful politicians, many of them from the Left....and linked with each other in one way or another...going back years.

Sorry to use wikipedia to cite stuff... but it was quick and relatively accurate.

Ps... the PRI and PRD both still currently belong to a worldwide Socialist movement.

I had forgotten that.



The governor that just left, before the governor that I worked for Miguel Alonzo Reyes, Amalia Garcia, started it with him.

Anyways... not USA related, but concerning big names in Mexican politics... (and they really only go back a century in their story - the money and power have existed since Spain)... it's good to have on record in English... just for reference:

88 clans control Mexicos Congress

posted May 6, 2015, 7:16 PM by Hernan Cortes

Nepotism in Mexican congress. Are you surprised? 88 families have held control over 455 federal legislative positions during the last 81 years, a period in which when reelection to the legislature has been prohibited, according to an investigation by El Universal news outlet. Of these dynasties, 53 have been present for between nine and 18 years; and 35 between 21 and 57 years, according to an research by El Universal.

A group of 230 legislators that belong to the "castes" that have controlled Mexico's Congress since 1934 have survived to reforms and switched parties to remain in power. Many parliamentarians are candidates in the current electoral process, while others have their clan's seat secured through proportional representation.

Their political heritage lies in their lineage and surname, that open the doors of Congress and political power in general: Rojo-Lugo, Batres, Vicencio, Sansores, Monreal, Alcaine, Manatou, Martínez, Ortega, Padierna.

The biggest "brand" is the Vicencio family, from Xonacatlán de Vicencio, State of Mexico, a town that owes its establishment to Celso Vicencio, local congressman in 1870, the first legislator of the family.


It would be very interesting to do such an research in Baja Sur state government and the municipio of La Paz and Cabo San Lucas...... Somehow I got the feeling that the results will be very similar. The power is within a few names/clans, excessive nepotism and enrichment by connection at the cost of the general population. What else is new....

DDF: 

Isn't Cardenas the son/grandson of the President from 1934-40?

He's the son of him (General/Mexican President Lázaro Cárdenas del Río). That is correct.

He also started the PRD party which is as Left as one can get here.

Mexico does have it written into its Constitution that anyone can only serve as president once (including those that serve in a temporary capacity); still, people stay in power in certain families for centuries, going all the way back to the Spanish Crown.

A great example of that, is the Monreal dynasty. They currently have 20+ politicians in their family. The Barrios family as well. There are several here.

In Los Angeles, they refer to Beverly Hills as "old money," and Encino being "newer money." Here in Mexico, most money comes from the beginning barring a couple of entrepreneurs and cartels... the rest of it goes all the way back to Spain.

Relating to the US-mexico question, Islamophobia in America, etc, our (illegal?) immigration application should offer the choice: Want to assimilate.  Don't want to assimilate. Choose one.


About 3/4's don't want to assimilate, for a mixture of political, personal (family) or economic reasons. The ones that do assimilate, are heavily berated by those that do not (Uncle Tom syndrome applied to Latinos).


I could back that up with various news stories and screen shots of comments in Spanish. It's absolutely the truth.

The amount of money flowing through the State Department, the UN, and USAID organizations is ridiculous, and almost untracked...certainly not a thing that makes the evening news.. nor does the money's end location.

Edit: I'm also going to add, that globalists such as Soros and Obama must be delighted that the UN is pushing government policy in almost every country on the globe in a third party manner, directly by paying for poorer countries to do what they say... Burkina Faso... Chad... Belize... you name it... If it's a poor country... they are buying their way into power. The US isn't any different... they'll pay to implement policy in the States as well, in whatever form that may take... they definitely do not sovereignty.. and doubting that...just look at the CEDAW treaty, the UN Commission on the Status of Women, and their meeting agendas to insure that UN policy is followed and implemented. It's a fact, and it has nothing to do with what voters in any particular country might want.

It would quite probably turn into WWIII and with the nuclear exchange usually associated with WWIII. Not a great idea in my mind. This does not mean we roll over. I do agree with throwing some elbows and showing we won't be punked, but it has to be done with a great deal of finesse.

46  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / More Than 100 Illegal Voters in Ohio - Ohio Secretary of State on: February 28, 2017, 11:55:49 AM
The Ohio Secretary of State has found hundreds of non-citizens registered to vote in the state, with more than a hundred of them, who were found to have cast votes at some time, and 82 of them casting votes in the last election.

http://nbc4i.com/2017/02/27/ohio-secretary-of-state-investigation-found-non-citizens-registered-to-vote-cast-illegal-ballots/

“In light of the national discussion about illegal voting it is important to inform our discussions with facts. The fact is voter fraud happens, it is rare and when it happens, we hold people accountable,” Secretary Husted said.

This is what covering one's rear end looks like. That is several Americans who have had their right to a vote stifled, with even one being too many. We're now talking about more than a 100 known cases, and hundreds registering to vote, which means at a minimum, that the thought of voting has occurred to them.

“I have a responsibility to preserve the integrity of Ohio’s elections system,” Secretary Husted said. “When you consider that in Ohio we have had 112 elections decided by one vote or tied in the last three years, every case of illegal voting must be taken seriously and elections officials must have every resource available to them to respond accordingly.”

"[...]non-citizens who have not cast a ballot will be sent letters both informing them that non-citizens are not eligible to vote and requesting that they cancel their registration. A follow-up letter will be sent to any individuals that still remain on the rolls after 30 days. Any non-citizens identified that remain on the rolls after being contacted twice will then be referred to law enforcement, according to Husted. - Why not immediately?

Ohio's demographics are stated to have  240,699 known non-citizens, with the majority being from Mexico. If the demographics for this register a number this high, for a state that ranks relatively low with illegal alien populations, how many non.citizens (illegal or documented), have voted in states where the non-citizen populations number in the millions - California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and Texas? Four of those states voted Democrat, with the other two being very close toss-ups in the last election.

Dancing Dog and I grew up wrestling in Iowa (where to this day, it remains the national sport and is revered), there is no way I would wrestle this person... because if you lose, you lose...and if you win, you won against a girl. I wouldn't do it.


By the current LBGTQWTF rules, if you wake up one morning and decide you are female, then you are, no makeup, dresses or surgery required. So, unaltered males that declare themselves female are now free to dominate women's sports. Oh, and enjoy the view of the locker room. Any female that protests gets shamed for her vile bigotry.


As usual, you're correct. I wonder how that would work in terms of grants and loans specifically for women? I wonder if any men have gamed that angle yet.

49  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Morena Party; Mexican government support for illegals to and in US on: February 26, 2017, 03:09:24 AM
Morena is growing in power daily here.

Mexico is already a socialist country... Morena will make it more so.

I'm wondering how long Mexico will keep its public support of migrants migrating north? Amerins by and large don't know it, but Mexico actually has public departments that promote (even illegal) immigration to the States, because of the amount of cash sent back to Mexico.

There are Ministries dedicated to this in every single state in Mexico.

Also noteworthy, are the huge clubs of Mexicans in the United States (primarily in Los Angeles and Chicago - being the largest amongst them), where i have personally guarded the governor here whilst meeting with them when they have returned to Mexico...to sponsor what they call a 3 for 1 program, wherein, the government here invests 3 pesos for every peso the clubs send back to Mexico....

You will notice that every link I attached has the ".gob" suffix, which is the Mexican equivalent of .gov, designating a government website.

The only reason Americans on't know the extent of this charade, is because they don't speak Spanish, and generally, anyone speaking Spanish in the States, supports the effort.

It's a scam of epic proportions... driven by dire need and corruption here. Americans get screwed in the process, as do Mexicans... because it allows the government here, to keep Mexicans dependant upon the US economy instead of fixing the economy here.

To date, there have only been something like 6 Mexican aircraft manufacturers, with only ONE currently producing driones... there has never been a Mexican helicopter.... there are zero Mexican car manufacturers, but they'll bu Nissan Tsurus by the ton (every taxi in the country is one almost).... and it isn't because Mexico lacks engineers that are capable of this.... it's because of a few things... government wanting to keep people dependent upon the government and ripping off the US economy being chief amongst them...

Even the drug war here could be combatted by developing the economy.... but they don't.
