COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

[8/19/14 UPDATE: THEY DID IT AGAIN, MORE LATER. I'M NOW AT @24AheadDotCom_ ] [SEE UPDATE AFTER THE TABLE] As can be seen from the "Take Action Now" block above and the page listing my tweets, Twitter is a major part of my broad campaign to hold politicians accountable and to block amnesty.

Tea Party "Patriots" mostly silent about anti-American DREAM Act (and rightwing bloggers too) - 12/07/10

The "patriots" in the tea parties aren't exactly going all out to oppose the anti-American DREAM Act amnesty. The loudest voices against the Obama administration have mostly gone silent against an amnesty which could cover between one to two million illegal aliens and which would allow those illegal aliens covered by it to take college resources away from their fellow citizens.

Why Matt Corley of ThinkProgress is a lightweight (Marty Peretz Mexico comments) - 03/28/09

A few days ago, Mickey Kaus released excerpts from Ezra Klein's hitherto secure mailing list for "liberals", Journolist (link, closed group at groups.google.com/group/journolist/topics). The first message is from Chris Hayes in which he calls Marty Peretz of the New Republic a "f***ing racist" for this post [1]: Well, I am extremely pessimistic about Mexican-American relations, not because the U.S. had done anything specifically wrong to our southern neighbor but because a (now not quite so) wealthy country has as its abutter a Latin society with all of its characteristic deficiencies:...

Stimulus: *additional* welfare cost of $523 billion? - 02/08/09

From Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation (link): The recently passed U.S. House of Representatives stimulus bill contains $816 billion in new spending and tax cuts. Of this sum, $264 billion (32 percent) is new means-tested welfare spending.

Shailagh Murray and Jonathan Weisman of the Washington Post offer "Talk of Resurrecting Immigration Bill Begins as Autopsy Goes On" (washingtonpost . com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/06/08/AR2007060802771.html). I see that Mickey Kaus has also pointed to this paragraph:
