The last of my posts written pre-system disaster went up yesterday so here are five thoughts with no live links or graphics under my fedora. I’ll put full URL’s at the end so you can go to the stories using copy and paste.
At PJ Media via Instapundit comes numbers that would shock twitter (does anything NOT shock twitter?) concerning black voters. Trump gotten a bump in support despite the entire media/left screaming racist tweets.
I strongly suspect this is become a lot of black voters live in cities like Baltimore and know what he was saying is true and are glad that someone is actually talking about it in a way that might force action.
Could Trump actually embarrass the Dems enough to clean up their messes? I doubt it, because if he gets credit for it then the Black vote and the national elections it helps Democrats win are gone for a generation.
At Business Insider there is an excellent piece about the culture shock of moving his family from Hollywood to a small town in Idaho and the discoveries that said liberal made. He was shocked that people had their valuables in plain sight, kept their doors unlocked and tended to help each other without any kind of angle.
He also noticed that it was a highly churched culture, heavenly armed and not very diverse. I wonder if there is a connection there?
You might remember that in the last Dem debate Tulsi Gabbard hit Kamila Harris on her record as Attorney General. By an odd coincidence a redesign of the California Department of Corrections no longer gives access to information concerning incarceration during the years that Ms Harris served, now displaying only the current year.
In fairness it is the home state of Nixon. No word if any relatives of the late Rosemary Woods were involved.
The real irony of the success of the Gabbard hit on Harris isn’t that Harris biggest worry isn’t that she might have been a overzealous or a crooked prosecutor but that during her time she might have actually enforced a law that was on the books that liberals didn’t like.
Don’t you know only laws that GOP voters like are to be defied with impunity by those sworn to uphold them?
Finally the Red Sox have lost five straight for the first time in four years, managed to let an opponent beat them 8 times in Fenway for the 1st time in 53 years (1966 Orioles) and are playing like they know they aren’t going anywhere this year.
I would remind the world series champs that while there is nothing wrong with acknowledging that you can’t win them all, as professionals, particularly professionals on the club with the highest payroll in the league, you are being PAID to try to win them all.
It’s possible it could turn around and they have a punchers chance but I wouldn’t bet the farm on them this year without very attractive odds being given
As I said due to unresolved issues with the site HTML & links don’t work so here are raw links to copy and paste
