They’re clearly stalling for time. They know that taking measures against hate groups will inflame the right wing and their puppets in the Senate, so they’re hoping to make it to November. If Trump wins again, they’ll continue promoting his message; if Biden wins, they’ll bow to the new power structure. It’s all about Read more

As the offspring of parents who came to this country for their master degrees, no amount of words can describe how terrible this reckless policy is.

For November, all registered voters in California will be getting mail-in ballots. Fill em’ out, mail em’ in (or drop em’ off), and let the county registrars deal whatever crappy systems (or excellent systems, as may be the case somewhere) that they have in place!

I can think of multiple locations in town where there are T-Mobile and Sprint stores within a block or two of each other. Some in the same shopping center. No way after a merger both are kept. This is one city out of thousands in the country....the math doesn’t make for good job retention numbers. It does imply lots Read more
