On the one hand, Texas is a staunch law-and-order state where conservatives support Trump’s immigration agenda; on the other hand, Jillson says, if ICE is too successful, “employers are wondering where they’re going to find people to man their businesses if American high school graduates aren’t going to do it.”

Every morning, a group of retirees meets at the Dairy Queen in the county seat of Paris to drink coffee and mull over the state of the nation.

“This country will not survive if we don’t straighten the way [immigrants] can come over here and work. Because I guarantee you Americans are not gonna do it,” says Alan Helberg, a former hospital administrator. His buddy, retired dentist Jerry Akers, chimes in, “Congress needs to get off their duff and pass some meaningful legislation to where people can come here and work legally and not have to be afraid of getting uprooted.”

Comprehensive immigration reform is, so far, dead in the water in the gridlocked Congress. And back at Tigertown, some trailer manufacturers say that if they can’t find enough welders, they would consider moving their entire operations to Mexico.

Again a white woman calls police on a black man for being in the building he lives in. This shit has to stop

In three videos posted to Facebook by the man, D’Arreion Toles, a woman is first seen blocking Toles’ entry into the downtown residential building. When he asks her to “please move, ma’am,” she demands to know if he is a resident.

The uncomfortable exchange continues for several minutes, with the woman asking Toles for his unit number and to see his key fob for the building. The videos have been shared more than 134,000 times since they were posted online Saturday.

“I’m uncomfortable,” she said, explaining why she continued to block his way.

“OK, you can be uncomfortable,” Toles answers. “That’s your discretion. You’re uncomfortable because of you.”

The woman is then seen following Toles in the building and trying to block his way into the elevator. Once inside, she follows him to his floor while continuing to ask to see his keys. “I want to see who you’re going to see,” she tells him.

Karen Pence Campaigns For GOP House Candidate Who Longs For Return To Criminalization Of Homosexuality

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/10/11/karen-pence-campaigns-for-gop-house-candidate-who-longs-for-return-to-criminalization-of-homosexuality/

“In one generation you and I have witnessed this country sliding from a nation who once shared a moral vision based on Judeo-Christian ethic to a nation floundering in moral decay. In one generation we have watched our nation who once believed in lifelong marriages to the same spouse to a divorce rate now well over 50 percent. We have watched in one generation where homosexuality was once criminalized to now we see the criminalization of Christianity.”

Voting rights become a flash point in Georgia governor’s race

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/voting-rights-become-a-flashpoint-in-georgia-governors-race/2018/10/09/86b41c4e-cbd1-11e8-ad0a-0e01efba3cc1_story.html?utm_term=.e13157f831ea

“I’ve always voted. I try to not miss any elections, including local ones,” Appling-Nunez said.

She tried re-registering, but with about one month left before a November election that will decide a governor’s race and some competitive U.S. House races, Appling-Nunez’s application is one of over 53,000 sitting on hold with Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s office. And unlike Appling-Nunez, many people on that list — which is predominantly black, according to an analysis by The Associated Press — may not even know their voter registration has been held up.

But through a process that Kemp calls voter roll maintenance and his opponents call voter roll purges, Kemp’s office has cancelled over 1.4 million voter registrations since 2012. Nearly 670,000 registrations were cancelled in 2017 alone.

An analysis of the records obtained by The Associated Press reveals racial disparity in the process. Georgia’s population is approximately 32 percent black, according to the U.S. Census, but the list of voter registrations on hold with Kemp’s office is nearly 70 percent black.

“We’ve shown that this process disproportionately prevents minority applicants from getting on the voter registration rolls,” Julie Houk, special counsel for the Washington based Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, said in an interview. With that in mind, she called it “kind of astounding” that Georgia legislators wrote it into state law in 2017.

Brett Kavanaugh Confirmation: Hello Christian Theocracy; Goodbye Church-State Separation

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2018/10/brett-kavanaugh-confirmation-hello-christian-theocracy-goodbye-church-state-separation/

Goodbye separation of church and state – hello Christian theocracy: Dramatic change is coming with the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Kavanaugh’s successful confirmation to the Supreme Court last week despite an intemperate, childish, and belligerent performance during his senate confirmation hearings, as well as credible allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women as a young man, will reshape the court in dramatic fashion, threatening the separation of church and state, and promising the nightmare that would be a Christian theocracy.

During this confirmation process, our worst fears about Kavanaugh’s record, judicial philosophy, and temperament were confirmed. He has repeatedly shown himself to be a partisan ideologue who is more interested in protecting religious privilege for politically powerful sects than standing up for true religious freedom.

Kavanaugh’s views on religious issues are deeply outside the mainstream and threaten decades of precedent on issues ranging from taxpayer subsidy of religion and proselytizing in public schools, to civil rights protections for LGBTQ Americans and access to reproductive health care for women.

Trump: Democrats Are Too Dangerous To Govern

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Criminal, Harm, Memes, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 10:02

I am fighting deep depression along with both physical and emotional pain.  Fascism / racism has been getting stronger and now just took a huge leap forward with Kavanaugh getting on SCOTUS.  Religious exemption laws will be standard but only for Christians.  Civil rights for minority will be gone.   corporations will have more rights than the people.   Republican efforts to limit voting will get worse, until minorities will not be able to vote.   tRump has now pushed the idea to his base supporters that democrats are too dangerous to govern, how long until he declares democrats “the enemy of the people”.  How soon until the powers of government are used as tRump wishes too investigate and charge his detractors and political opponents?   Democracy is dying with a whimper right now.  I am discourage and stunned that so few could take over a country working for the future and drag it back to the 1930’s.  More at the link below.   Sad hugs

The Hill reports:

President Trump late Saturday escalated his rhetoric in urging supporters to support Republicans in the midterm elections, warning that Democrats have become “too extreme and too dangerous to govern.” The president’s tweet was roughly the same quote he delivered to cheers at the rally in Kansas.

Is this the new Christianity.

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Harm, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 15:55

Uneducated and totally wrong on the facts, this “Christian” has decided that Mocking and lying are good for the people she leads.  She thinks the ends justify the means, and she is using all the worst rotten means.    Just as she and her type straw man and claim horrible things against gay people, they now attack a woman who endured a horrible sexual assault in the name of her god.   How righteous is this.  Why do these people think their god makes an exception for their behavior while they attack others?  We have to some how pry their claws off our democracy while it still has some life left.   Hugs

Christian Radio Host: Christine Ford Deserves Mockery

“Some people think that it was wrong to mock Christine Ford. I did my share of it, too. I think she’s a liar and I think she deserves mockery. I think she is the perpetrator. I think the more I’m learning about her, the more dangerous I’m hearing that she is. She’s not an innocent woman.” – American Family Association radio host Sandy Rios, who goes on repeat the right wing claim that Christine Blasey Ford managed to cheat on her polygraph exam.
