  4. The migrant children in cages is hyperbolic bullshit, embraced by Democrats. Stop for a moment and realize American citizens are separated from their children everyday. For example: If someone is operating a motor vehicle, with children as passengers and a police officer believes they are under the influence in violation of the law, then the American citizen and the children will be separated. The citizen will be arrested and the children will come under the control of social services. A great many "hoops" must be completed,, before they will be reunited.Additionally, an investigation to determine, at least, the relation of the citizen and the children, if the children have been abused, are malnourished etc. and the fact that this citizen,willfully placed the children in harm's way, will be addressed. Take the aforementioned and substitute "illegally entering the United States" for "under the influence". It would be better optics if the children apprehended, illegally entering the United States were housed in hotels, while the investigation is conducted.But, the volume of individuals, illegally crossing the border created the need for quickly constructed barriers, to separate, control and protect. I would not be as quick to dismiss the crying for immigrant families separated by criminal activities if there had ever been a national campaign to stop the separation of American citizen families separated by criminal activities.

  17. Cages The cages were built by the Obama Admin. and used in the same manner https://apnews.com/2663c84832a13cdd7a8233becfc7a5f3 From the DHS website Myth DHS has never separated families for prosecutions before – this is a new policy in this Administration. Fact Illegal border crossers, including family units, were referred for prosecutions, as appropriate, under the previous Administration. The average referral rate for amenable adults from FY10 – FY16 was 21 percent. Travel Ban The travel ban Executive Order 13769 was approved by the supreme court it was not illegal

  18. yes we understand you have to apply for asylum its not automatically granted Photo: GUILLERMO ARIAS/AFP/Getty Images The asylum seeker must prove to the officer that there is a “significant possibility” he or she is eligible for asylum, and must also be subject to a credibility assessment. If the officer makes a positive finding, the asylum seeker is referred to an immigration court where they will have the opportunity to apply for asylum before an immigration judge. If the individual does not meet the credible fear screening standard, he or she can be deported. Some individuals who are already in the U.S., such as those who may have entered on a tourist visa or other temporary visa, may also apply for asylum. In those circumstances, the process for asylum varies. How many people are granted asylum in the U.S.? “Asylee” is the term used in the U.S. for people who have been granted asylum. Last year, 35,502 individuals were granted asylum. According to U.S. immigration law, a person granted asylum is legally allowed to remain in the U.S. without fear of deportation. They qualify to work, travel abroad, and apply for their spouse or children under the age of 21 to join them. Having a legal representative significantly increases the likelihood of being granted asylum. One study found that asylum seekers who had submitted an asylum application before the immigration court were five times more likely to be granted asylum if they had a lawyer. Video For this student, violence in El Salvador was akin to war Where do asylum seekers in the U.S. come from? At the start of 2019, Venezuelans and Central Americans were among the largest groups of people to apply for asylum in the U.S. Three million Venezuelans have left the country since 2015 due to growing insecurity, instability and violence.

It was a matter of policy, unlike before, and they did it with asylum seekers too. Regardless, it was cruel through-and-through which is typical of this administration.

  25. I will not defend Trump or the Republican party, but for the last decade , or so, I have voted strictly Republican. Focus on Trumps buffoonery misses the big picture. It is not hyperbole that freedom, both ideological and physical is at stake. The Republicans are not champions of freedom and routinely capitulate to wealthy corporations. But, wealthy corporations do not have a defense force on par with the military. If the situation became bad enough, then there could be recourse. The Democrats are focused on weakening the citizenry of America and forcing c compliance with federal force. Historically and Globally rights once lost are never returned. The Democrats are like a neighbor, who routinely and openly shits on your lawn. You see him do it, he knows you see him, but doesn’t care. If you touch him, the Democrats want to send federal police and/or SWAT to your home to seize any and all firearms and strip you of your second amendment rights. If you come out screaming and threaten him, again the Democrats want to the Feds strip you of your second amendment rights. And you better pray that the shitter isn’t a member of a minority, then you will likely be labeled racist and facebook group members from all around the county will come to shit on your lawn to show solidarity. Emails will bombard your employer that chastise the company for employing a racist. Groups will demand boycott of the business if you are not fired. Should you call the police? You could try, but this will be very low priority and if you are in a big city, police assistance is extremely unlikely. And the shitter keeps coming by and you are stuck in shit. You, not your political party, not hypothetically, not potentially, are dealing with actual shit. Trump acts, or is, a fool. He repeatedly and publically, metaphorically shits himself, and it looks bad. There is much talk about shitty things he is doing or has done and much of it is likely true. The current Democratic platform is refreshingly, abhorrently, clear. It is focused on abolishing freedom of speech , the right to bear arms, and forced economic redistribution. Understanding that there is a segment of the population, that will resist these policies, Democrats are actively working to clear the way to implement quasi-military or military enforcement. If it is still a tough choice, then take all the stupid shit that Trump says, take all the global embarrassment that Trump has caused, take the potential damage to international relations by his actions with the Russians and North Korea, take the damage his bankruptcy, his shady college dealings, the injecting bleach proclamation, did to you and put it in one hand, shit in the other. Which hand do you want to spend the next 4 years with?

  28. I am quoting Mike here below. Quote__________________________________ Theoretically you can't both be correct. But this is the new world since 2016 where Mike's Theorem applies... "For every positive and true fact there is an equally negative fact... that is also true". ________________________________________end quote This statement above is absolutely true, so let us look at the demonstrations/riots in Portland and Mayor Wheeler and Governor Brown, some ask why Trump has not done something about law and order in Portland, well if he does without them worthless Democrats approval he will get crucified in the press/media and the Politicians would be so excited for that to happen, so all he can say is "if you ask I will help", that puts it all on them Democrats and both of them are not looking too good right now, anything Trump does is going to get negative press/media as Mike said above for every positive true fact about Trump there is going to be some way to put a spin on it to make the same thing a negative true fact. A lot on here are like to post links to far left opinions, and that is what they are, OPINIONS, and others on here can find a link that shows it from another angle that shows the exact opposite point of view that is also an opinion, they are all opinions including think tank opinions from the elite as they are bias because they are humans with agendas that created them. Thankfully at this time we still have the right to have an opinion in this country, I would not count on that if Biden wins or the Politicians just take over and refuse to except him as President another 4 years like the Democrat Politicians have done for the last 3+ years, notice I said Politicians take over, I did not say Democrat politicians as except for Trump they are all the same animals, they all sell their influence for power and financial gain, Republicans are just as bad as the Democrats, the only thing stopping these animals agenda is Trump and that is my opinion, they will not stop attacking him until he is gone, it's just the Republicans cannot appear to be on the Democrats side as they will get voted out of office or recalled, most of them are just sitting this out and letting the Democrats look bad alone, it likely will only help them in this next election. I believe nothing seen on the TV in the Portland area as 95 percent of it is some Democrats spin on an opinion and not the whole truth, it is only one side of an opinion, there are a few spins for the other side of of that 95 percent as to not have the other sides opinion would likely be Unconstitutional so they can do nothing about it. Last night I heard something that stuck in my mind and it is why I wrote this post, these Politicians Democrat and Republican alike want the same things except for Trump as he knows them and all their tricks, this is why they hate him, and why I would say that most would be insane to vote for anyone except Trump, and that is my opinion that I still have the right to have at this time, and that is likely because Trump won in 2016, I expect if Clinton had won I would not have the right to an opinion today as she is as crazy as Trump.

  31. Hello everyone, an update for August: shipping charges and times may be slightly affected due to current events, but most shipments still arrive on time. We're looking into manufacturing additional rubbers/weatherstrips for the Datsun 320 -- I'll post updates on those projects when I can. We still have vent window rubbers in stock, ready to be shipped out. The price is still the same: 198 USD for a set of LR RH seals. Shipping is 53 USD to the US, for 1-2 sets. If you're interested in placing an order, please get in touch with me here or on my Facebook: I'm active on the Datsun Parts and Needs Facebook group and have listed the seals for sale there.

  32. I said a privileged society. Rich or 'poor' you had advantages they might only dream of. Those Mexican migrants aren't all Mexican BTW. Have a little compassion for their plight. I have no problem with a 'wall'. All countries should have a non porous border. The fact that yours isn't is the biggest cause of the problem with migrants. Build it or not. Shit or get off the pot. Git er done. Maybe fix the problem causing this mass migration?

  37. Sorry, think I misread your post. You're not saying asylum is illegal, but some asylum seekers did not go through the process after being admitted? If they're too lazy to do the process, then sure deport them, but I don't think they should all be painted with the same brush.

  39. this is kind of long but 16 charts to compare https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/09/05/trump-obama-economy/ here is one clip 8. Manufacturing output The end of Obama’s second term saw a mini manufacturing recession that deeply hurt blue-collar workers even as the service economy continued to chug along. Trump vowed to revive factories. Early on in his presidency, manufacturing jobs and output jumped. In 2018, manufacturing jobs were growing at the fastest clip since the early 1980s. But it didn’t last. Manufacturing output and jobs stalled in 2019, an early warning sign of economic trouble. The pandemic was a major blow. Real-time indicators show some rebound in manufacturing, especially as auto sales and home sales have bounced backed. But manufacturing employment remains more than 700,000 jobs below pre-pandemic levels. 9. U.S. home prices Home prices have been on a steadily upward climb even since bottoming out in 2011. A lot of this growth has been driven by the Federal Reserve. The Fed has kept interest rates low, which has led to historic lows in mortgage rates that have made home-buying more affordable for many families (as long as they have savings for a down payment). 2020 is the summer of booming home sales — and evictions Even the pandemic didn’t put much of a dent in home purchases. In fact, some city dwellers have been rushing to the suburbs in search of bigger homes with more space. That trend, combined with a surge in millennials buying homes and mortgage rates below 3 percent, have fueled a housing boom. The median home price in the United States hit $304,100 in July, according to the National Association of Realtors. It’s the highest price on record, surpassing the prior 2006 high in inflation-adjusted terms. 10. U.S. government debt Both Obama and Trump have been criticized for growing the national debt. Spending increased under Obama as the federal government tried to revive the economy after the Great Recession, as well as fund the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and continuing most of the Bush tax cuts. AD Trump’s 2017 tax cut added about $1.5 trillion more to the debt, contrary to claims by the president’s administration that it would not. Then the pandemic hit and the federal government responded with more than $3 trillion in aid. The result is the national debt is at the highest levels since World War II. The closely watched debt-to-GDP ratio, a sign of how big U.S. debt held by the public is relative to the economy, is on track to surpass 100 percent in the coming months. Many economists say the bulge in spending after the Great Recession and pandemic recession were necessary and unavoidable, but they fault Obama and Trump for not doing more to right the federal budget during the good economic years. 11. Consumer confidence Consumer spending drives about 70 percent of the U.S. economy. Many economists and business leaders closely watch signs of consumer confidence to see if Americans are likely to keep buying. The two main gauges of consumer confidence are monthly surveys by the Conference Board and the University of Michigan. Both showed an increase in confidence after Trump’s election, largely because Republicans and Independent voters rated the economy more highly. Your view of the economy depends on whether your party controls the White House As the unemployment rate continued to decrease, confidence hit levels not seen since the late 1990s in early 2020. Though much of the economy under Trump looked similar to under Obama, many Americans appeared to feel better about their job and business prospects. Then the pandemic hit, causing confidence to tank. Nearly 1 in 3 Americans now worries about losing their job, according to Gallup. 12. Wages While the economy did a big U-turn under Obama, his administration admitted that its “unfinished business” was seeing wages grow faster again. When the economy is performing well, it’s usually hard for employers to find enough workers, and they start lifting pay by more than 3 percent a year. That did not happen in the Obama era. It took until the summer of 2018 to finally see average hourly earnings rising above 3 percent. 13. Gas prices Gas prices were well above $3 a gallon for much of Obama’s tenure. Many Americans see these prices as they drive to work, and it influences their overall feeling about the economy. As prices rise, they tend to feel gloomier as gas costs eat into their weekly pay. But oil prices plunged in 2014 as the world’s major oil-producing countries, such as Saudi Arabia, refused to cut back production, leading to a glut of oil on the world market. When Trump took office, gas prices were just $2.37 a gallon, on average. They have remained low throughout Trump’s first term, helping keep costs manageable for many Americans. Though Trump likes to tout that America is now “energy independent” because it exports oil again, the reality is the nation still depends on imports of crude oil from abroad. The rise and fall of gas prices are largely driven by the world market and power players like Saudi Arabia that have continued to pump cheap oil. 14. Americans with health insurance Obama made it one of his top goals to get more Americans covered by health insurance. The number of Americans lacking health insurance went from more than 48 million people in 2010 down to 28 million after the passage of the Affordable Care Act. The uninsured rate has remained low under Trump, though it ticked up slightly after Trump did away with the penalty for American adults who don’t buy health insurance. Trump also made it a goal to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but that has not happened in his first term. 15. Business investment An ongoing problem for the U.S. economy in recent years has been sluggish business investment. The economy tends to perform better when firms spend more on new research, products and equipment, since that tends to lead to more innovation. Business investment was slow at the end of Obama’s second term. Trump and many Republicans said their 2017 tax cut would spur a business investment boom. Though 2018 did see improved business investment, the bump was short-lived. Business investment was anemic again in 2019, even before the pandemic’s economic blow. 16. Trade deficit Most economists paid little attention to the trade deficit before Trump ran for office. The United States has purchased more goods from abroad than it has sold for years, largely because American consumers like to shop. Economists didn’t worry about this because foreign nations would turn around and invest in the U.S., so the dollars typically came back, one way or another. But Trump insisted deficits were a sign of weakness. He promised his trade deals would get the deficit back down. What happened instead is the overall trade deficit in 2018 was the largest in a decade. The trade deficit is on track to come down in 2020 but not for particularly encouraging reasons. Trade deficits tend to shrink during recessions, as Americans save more and shop less. 231 Comments Today’s Headlines The most important news stories of the day, curated by Post editors and delivered every morning.

  42. I think Hannity is a nut that is still fixated on Hillary Clinton for some reason.He's just the opposite of a CNN,MSNBC,Huffpost,NY TIMES and the other radically biased news sources.I have seen OAN a couple of times.What i've seen is a listing of things that did get accomplished by the horrible orange man.What i haven't seen them do is report opinions as fact like the others do.The difference between Hannity and our typical media ? He's outnumbered a hundred to one.When you believe people that support the President are following a cult leader i'm thinking you're the one that has a problem.He did get elected didn't he ? There can't possibly be that many cult followers across the country.Here's an idea,how about you tell us who's better at this point ? That party you seem to support IS the reason we have Trump.That same party went ahead and chose a guy that can barely put a sentence together.Is the Democratic party really that bad ? And just so you know,i'm an independent and have voted both sides.I choose who i think will do a better job for THIS country and it's citizens.Screw this one side or the other crap.

  43. Update: Got the cab off the chassis. This was pretty tricky, didn't have access to the hoist at the time so we raised the front of the truck up on the ramps, then jacked the back up, put some sawhorses I built under the cab and lowered the frame. Next we had to maneuver the chassis out from under the cab with a series of chess moves....all in all, was a great learning experience for both of us but at the end of the day, we got it done. Chassis is in pretty good shape. There are no major issues that I can see rust wise. Most looks to be surface rust so once we get the suspension fab'd up, the whole thing will go to the media blaster. I know this project is moving slow but with both of us working, we get time in where we can. It's definitely coming along though!
