    LOL. Not a 7/11 but a local convenience store was owned by Sikhs. Good, hard working people.

    I used to freak out when I saw a Sikh, until I got to know one. They are the best of the Indians. Most eat meat, believe in personal freedoms, and are really down to earth people.

    I got on a plane in Kuwait and this Turban head sat down next to me. Amazingly, he didn't smell bad. I asked him if it would offend him if I had a couple of drinks. He said, and I quote, "My good man, whatever do you think I'm doing on this airplane? I go to Dubai about once a month so I can have a few drinks." Alcohol is taboo in Kuwait, well on the surface. They drink plenty of alcohol, but are expert hypocrites. They're the ultimate closet drinkers, better than the biggest Baptist Hypocrite you ever met.

    This guy became a good friend. I learned, "Never judge a book by its cover."

    You reminded me of the 1964 Los Angeles Watts riot. Military Jeeps with M1919 .30 Cal machine guns significantly reduced looting. Of course the California libtards of the day were horrified. Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention recorded a song about it a couple years later.

    Trouble Comin' Every Day (1966)

    Well I'm about to get UPSET
    From watchin' my TV
    Been checkin' out the news
    Until my eyeballs fail to see
    I mean they say that every day
    Is just another rotten mess
    And when it's gonna change, my friends
    Is anybody's guess

    So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
    Hopin' for the best
    Even think I'll go to prayin'
    Every time I hear 'em sayin'
    That there's no way to delay
    That trouble comin' every day
    No way to delay
    That trouble comin' every day

    Wednesday I watched the riot...
    I seen the cops out on the street
    Watched 'em throwin' rocks and stuff
    And chokin' in the heat
    Listened to reports
    About the whisky passin' 'round
    Seen the smoke & fire
    And the market burnin' down
    Watched while everybody
    On his street would take a turn
    To stomp and smash and bash and crash
    And slash and bust and burn

    And I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
    Hopin' for the best
    Even think I'll go to prayin'
    Every time I hear 'em sayin'
    That there's no way to delay
    That trouble comin' every day
    No way to delay
    That trouble comin' every day

    Well you can cool it,
    You can heat it...
    'Cause, baby, I don't need it...
    Take your TV tube and eat it
    'N all that phony stuff on sports
    'N all THOSE unconfirmed reports
    You know I watched that rotten box
    Until my head began to hurt
    From checkin' out the way
    The newsmen say they get the dirt
    Before the guys on channel so-and-so
    And further they assert
    That any show they'll interrupt
    To bring you news if it comes up
    They say that if the place blows up
    They'll be the first to tell
    Because the boys they got downtown
    Are workin' hard and doin' swell,
    And if anybody gets the news
    Before it hits the street,
    They say that no one blabs it faster
    Their coverage can't be beat

    And if another woman driver
    Gets machine-gunned from her seat
    They'll send some joker with a brownie
    And you'll see it all complete

    So I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
    Hopin' for the best
    Even think I'll go to prayin'
    Every time I hear 'em sayin'
    That there's no way to delay
    That trouble comin' every day
    No way to delay
    That trouble comin' every day

    (spoken) Hey you know something people
    I'm not black
    But there's a whole lots a times
    I wish I could say I'm not white

    Well, I seen the fires burnin'
    And the local people turnin'
    On the merchants and the shops
    Who used to sell their brooms and mops
    And every other household item
    Watched the mob just turn and bite 'em
    And they say it served 'em right
    Because a few of them are white,
    And it's the same across the nation
    Black & white discrimination
    They're yellin' "You can't understand me!"
    And all the other crap they hand me
    In the papers and TV
    'N all that mass stupidity
    That seems to grow more every day
    Each time you hear some nitwit say
    He wants to go and do you in
    Because the color of your skin
    Just don't appeal to him
    (No matter if it's black or white)
    Because he's out for blood tonight
    You know we gotta sit around at home
    And watch this thing begin
    But I bet there won't be many left
    To see it really end
    'Cause the fire in the street
    Ain't like the fire in my heart
    And in the eyes of all these people
    Don't you know that this could start
    On any street in any town
    In any state if any clown
    Decides that now's the time to fight
    For some ideal he thinks is right
    And if a million more agree
    There ain't no great society
    As it applies to you and me
    Our country isn't free
    And the law refuses to see
    If all that you can ever be
    Is just a lousy janitor
    Unless your uncle owns a store
    You know that five in every four
    WON'T amount TO nothin' more
    THAN watch the rats go across the floor
    And make up songs about being poor
    Blow your harmonica son!

    Great poem. Lots of good common sense here. One thing, the only time I'm wishing I was something other than white is when I'm with a group of good Filipinos sitting around drinking Tanduay or San Mig, shooting the breeze and enjoying each other's company. Sometimes I have this little tingling feeling that I wish I was one of them. But then I remember I wouldn't be special to them and that's the main reason I get the royal treatment.

    That is painting with a pretty broad brush there. That is like claiming Trump voters are a bunch of deplorable misogynist racist people that drag their knuckles and have the collective IQ of a soapdish.

    Some people have their own reasons to vote for Democrats not listed above. Instead of building a straw man to vilify, maybe we should be finding some common ground. Some good, decent people vote Democrat and are liberals.

    Obama was certainly a divider. He's not president anymore. This crap needs to end.

    You're right. Now suggest that to all the dems in congress and see how it goes. I will give one dem props, Van Jones on CNN said some positive things about the speech and trump. Something like while he disagrees with him on the issues, the dems need to be working with him instead of just dismissing everything he says.

    BTW my prediction (and I think I have a pretty decent track record on this one) is the massive defection of these good Democrats away from the party that has abandoned them. If the Republican party has any brains (and I think they are starting to get some) they will send a message of welcome to these folks and create an environment that will invite them into our house. So far in my personal life I have seem quite a few of the "good" Democrats parting ways with that party, specially in the last election. Many have not gone as far as re-registering but I don't think they are too far from doing so.

    If Trump grows up and starts acting like a leader, (and from what I have heard about his address, he sounds like he is at least talking the talk now) Dems are going to have no choice but to toe the line. He hasn't done anything as president against women, yet the Democratic women in Congress wore white "in protest". It made them look like childish fools. If they keep it up, they may make themselves extinct next fall.

    Republicans need to legislate thoughtfully and very carefully. Obama really could have been an awesome president and unified the entire country, but right out of the gate, we got division and that whole, "we won-- elections have consequences" crap that got him 2010 and doomed the rest of his presidency. I hope Republicans and Trump learned from that arrogance.

    While I agree with this sentiment, the GOP hasn't shown much in the way of brains post-Reagan and is showing quite a few of the classic signs of "the same ol' GOP" - but I'm holding onto hope (for now). I really wish "real" Libertarianism would gain traction in this country, but the sad facts are that A) The "Libertarian Party" went full-**** socialist this cycle, and more importantly B) people aren't really interested in freedom/liberty - just their particular brand of slavery. But I'm repeating myself so I'll shut up now...

    The irony of your statement in light of the point of this entire conversation is off the charts. Sure continue to caricature the other side so it's easy hate them and so you can justify ignoring anything they might have to say. Gleefully accept the role the elite masters of your party have assigned to you and pick up a sword to fight for your team in the battle against the evil "other". Be a good soldier and never question your orders. Never question the reason for the battle, for your side is righteous and good and the other side is wicked and evil.

    Good grief, do you ever listen to the brown, semi-liquid horsepucky that comes out of the mouths of the political and activist left? You have a habit of making generally negative statements when it comes to Republicans too. I'll admit that I''m a hyper-partisan, and my sig-line pretty much says what I think of democraps, but this is a result of listening to those fools since 1965.

    If we did that, we would be democrat progressives. I was like that, until I started to think and did the math. Then I became conservative. Been that way for years or this wouldnt have been made. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6aA3fiwTs0

    I find it odd that the USA is considered to be more hate filled than ever, after 8 years of lovey touchy huggy feely let's stop the hate type conversation.
    The last 8 years have been the divisive and polarizing. In some ways, we made some gains-- homosexuals are allowed to openly be in the military and can marry, and now enjoy the rights that the rest of our citizens have always enjoyed. Race? That completely went to Hell. Women's issues? To Hell. I feel that the fight for gay rights was just and I am glad it happened. The world didn't end either like many people said. Nobody really gives a and homosexuals can shut up and go live their lives now. Brad and Angelina can now get married.... er.... never mind that thought.

    I think some people seen those gains and threw their own pet cause on top of it all. The problem is that they are looking for "rights" where none exist to the point where they want to be more equal than the rest. There are some really stupid people in this country. Dumber than rocks. But even some of the dumbest among us realize that "more equal" is not the same as fair. I believe that most people will concede that fair is fair and we would like to get on with our lives. This crap is getting old and I don't think I am the only one.

    Freak Out was their debut album and contains both Trouble Comin' Every Day and Suzie Cream Cheese. Although Zappa was no Ted Nugent he could at times be surprisingly conservative back in the 'Hippy Dippy' days.

    That's not new and has actually been around since 1775 and the birth of the Navy.

    From a comment on the article:

    New York Times Article:




    “She voted for Mitt Romney over Barack Obama in the 2012 election. In 2014 she voted for our current attorney general, Ken Paxton,” Mr. Birdsall said. “And guess what? He’s the one responsible for prosecuting her.”

    As a Dallas County resident, she registered to vote and later cast ballots in elections in 2012 and 2014, her lawyer, Mr. Birdsall, said. While that was illegal, there was no attempt to break the law, he maintained: Some government forms allow applicants to declare that they are permanent residents, but the voting registration form asks only whether an applicant is a citizen.

    Lacking the permanent resident option, he said, she ticked the “citizen” box. When the county later mailed her a registration card, he said, she believed she “was good to go.”

    My question: How did the New York Times discover who she voted for?

    "My question: How did the New York Times discover who she voted for? "

    Interesting, it's a secret ballot. There was nothing on my ballot to connect it to me.

    Obama is not going away, all he did was change his DC address. He and Jarrett and Schumer and the rest of the socialist gang are going to do everything they can to disrupt the Trump administration.
