Locusts. Property values aside, they move into a new area, infect it with their enlightened liberal "values," vote for the same kinds of people who ruined the state they left behind, and trash everything they touch. They refuse to learn and blame everyone around them for being "intolerant," when what they really are is defensive.

To all you Californians coming from crap (literally) areas, New Yorkers, Illinoians, Virginians (that exodus is bound to start soon,) and others escaping failed cities and states to where we have built comfortable living and thriving economies: leave your voting and moral (or amoral) habits behind, open your eyes and ears and learn. The places you are going are successful for a reason, and the places you are leaving behind are failures for a reason. Learn the difference.

Adam Schiff suggested that any lawmaker who identifies the Trump whistleblower during public congressional hearings could face a House ethics investigation.

Go ahead. Bring it, asshat!

"Our guests' experience is a top priority at Firehouse Subs and we're saddened to say that this guest was not treated with the heartfelt service we expect at one of our restaurants," said Firehouse Subs.

“As [an] international student, this is a very sad experience in United States. And I don’t understand why people have this problem in USA?”

From his family name I assume he is from China. Given his country is completely xenophobic and "racist" against various groups of its own people, I might understand if he is shocked to find the our country has any racists. It is naive, but understandable.

Until I read this. “I do not accept the manager’s personal [apology],” Zhao wrote, adding that he believes the manager is responsible for any “racial discrimination” by the employees.

Now he has gone from naive foreigner to little more than an activist, and might actually be a Chinese plant.

A California woman said she was assaulted by a homeless man who pulled her out of her car, dragged her into the middle of the street and poured a buck of hot feces on her head. 

Remember, kids: homelessness is about equality, not mental health.

"Star Trek" actor Patrick Stewart has declared himself "embarrassed" to be British amid the ongoing Brexit saga, describing the country's democratic vote to leave the European Union in 2016 as a "disgrace."

Your fellow countrymen voted to leave the authoritarian state of the European Union. If you stand opposed to this exercise of democracy and you are embarrassed to be British, then surrender your title, schmuck.

The Supreme Court, in an order released Tuesday, allowed families of Sandy Hook victims to proceed with a lawsuit against gun manufacturer Remington Arms despite the company's claims that it was protected from liability by federal law. 

I mentioned in my comment on the NPR article, if this would set the proper precedent for personal responsibility this would be great, but juries are not hearing this any more and tend to assign blame up the chain. This is going to be a damned nightmare and I will be genuinely surprised, even shocked, if the case comes out that gun manufacturers are not responsible for how people use their products.

Though, I suppose this will get settled out-of-court.

The gun-maker had appealed to the highest federal court after the Connecticut Supreme Court allowed the lawsuit over the 2012 school massacre in Newtown, Conn., to go forward in March.

This would be a good thing if we could be sure the results would stand up to respectful takes on personal responsibility and set good precedent. But far too many juries are swayed by emotional claims.

San Francisco's newly elected district attorney has promised to not prosecute public urination and other quality-of-life crimes that have plagued the highly-priced Bay Area amid a crippling homelessness crisis affecting urban communities across California. 

"If you're going to San Francisco, Be sure to wear splash guards on your shoes."

Interesting take, this "quality-of-life crime" thing. I never realized prostitution was a quality-of-life issue. I am certainly happy to have politicians and the ACLU continuing my education.

Perhaps these masterminds have finally found the answer to "broken windows" and the rest of us are just too stupid to see it. I submit, however, that the sucking sound we hear is SanFran getting pulled down the proverbial toilet.

President Trump has falsely claimed at least two dozen times since taking office that Democrats want to open American borders. But legislation shows that Democrats support border security measures, though not the border wall he wants to build.

Sanctuary cities and states, decriminalizing illegal border crossings, amnesty, DACA, DREAM, removing terms from official documentation denoting the illegality of those crossing the border illegally and making them socially unacceptable, statutorily preventing local LEOs from working with ICE, advocating for the elimination of ICE and CBP, preventing funding for a border wall or any measures to prevent illegal border crossings.

Stipulating no Democrat has ever said in explicit terms to open the border, these actions and policies certainly smell like open borders. If it quacks like a duck...

Once again, the New York Slimes activates its reality distortion field. Read through its editorial articles over the past few years on the border and exercise your mind with the mental gymnastics.

Hamas-linked CAIR demands that she return. That should tell politicians something. But it won't. "U.S.-born ISIS bride says 'everyone deserves a second chance,'" by Luke Denne and Gabriel Chaim, NBC News, November 9, 2019: AL-ROJ CAMP, Syria — An American-born woman who once urged jihadists in America to "go on drivebys, and spill all of...

Abso-fucking-lutely not. She deserves nothing. This was not a white lie she told; she did not forget someone's birthday. She actively encouraged murders of her (former) fellow countrymen. She should no longer have the privilege of being an American.
