If you can’t get amnesty via law, then you can get amnesty via language.





“Security Risks”

2 05 2016

Carr Square

Dick Durbin headlines a letter that various interested Illinois elected officials sent to the NGA opposing the Pruitt Igoe Carr Square proposal.  The letter describes the general area as a “security risk.”

How could Dick Durbin of all people be so racist?

Their lips say no, but their budget request says something entirely different.

SIUC poll shows Trump and HRC with sizable leads in Illinois, which, like Missouri, holds its primary on March 15.

Nice unbiased journalism you’ve got going there in the second paragraph, Mr. McDermott, by and by.

I also know Trump is above 50% in Massachusetts and close to that in New Jersey.  I think what this means is that a lot of blue state red team voters are right wing in that they are populist-nationalist but not social issue, and if the only choice is the Republican establishment pick versus someone that appeals to Christian conservatives, they’ll hold their nose and settle for the establishment, but they really want someone more in the Trump mold.





Moral Obligation

22 01 2016

Shiloh

Minor news in the minor soap opera about the new home for Defense Mapping (National Geospatial Agency).

KMOX:

St. Clair County Board chair Mark Kern said he’s not paying much attention to arguments that the federal government has a moral obligation to choose the city’s north side.

“Moral obligation” = The Federal government spending money on behalf of black people, which of course it never has before.  And also, Pruitt-Igoe and Ferguson.

If the decision is made in the next 364 days, then it will be made based on whether President Obama wants to make Dick Durbin happy slash help his own home state, though a part of it he doesn’t much care about, or whether he wants to make black people in St. Louis City happy.

Sorry, I don’t think humans taste like chicken.

He took a bite into crime.
