The "bags for life" age badly and soon begin to tear under even moderate use. On the other hand, the average regular plastic bag is used at our home up to three times. First to carry groceries, next to carry additional items, finally as a garbage bag. Clearly a better choice.

I wonder if these idiots would change their minds if it was their child that was sexually assaulted...

ICE Catches Alleged Child Sexual Predator Repeatedly Released By Philadelphia Police

Quote:
* The Philadelphia Police Department arrested Hector Moran-Espinoza, an illegal alien accused of heinous sexual abuse crimes against minors, on two different occasions.
* Both times, the PPD chose to ignore a detainer request by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, choosing instead to release him back into the community.
* Philadelphia, a sanctuary city that refuses to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, has chosen to release a growing number of illegal aliens accused of heinous crimes, despite ICE detainers.

Free Market Capitalism Is Good for Democracy, New Study Finds

Quote:
Liberal critics of free-market capitalism have argued that free markets are incompatible or at odds with democracy, but a new study from the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) aims to show otherwise. Liberals act as though free-market reformers would destroy democracy, but capitalists are more likely the allies of constitutional representative government and the opponents of bureaucratic rule. Self-styled progressives, meanwhile, aim to strengthen an unaccountable bureaucracy that undermines the will of the people.

CEI's Iain Murray responds to Duke University historian Nancy MacLean's 2017 book Democracy in Chains: The Deep History of the Radical Right’s Stealth Plan for America. He presents two central points: That American democracy is constrained by design in ways that promote freedom and economic progress; and that there is a new bureaucratic system at odds with the Constitution which must be reversed in the interests of representative government and economic progress.

"Critics of the free market contend that democracy, as they conceive it, should not be constrained. Yet, it turns out that American democracy is already constrained—by design. We have explicitly rejected the idea of 'unfettered democracy.' We accept limitations on the democratic will of the majority in all sorts of areas. We do not allow a democratic majority to use its power to ban any form of political speech, to segregate communities on the basis of race, or to impose religious views or obligations on others," Murray writes.

University of Virginia Reinstates Veterans Day 21-Gun Salute: ‘We Made a Mistake’

Quote:
The University of Virginia (UVA) has reinstated its annual Veterans Day tradition of a 21-gun salute to honor fallen service members and admitted that it “made a mistake” by cancelling it this year.

As CNSNews.com reported on Veterans Day, November 11, 2019, the University of Virginia (UVA) had cancelled its tradition of honoring fallen veterans with a 21-gun salute on Veterans Day, citing concerns that it will disrupt classes and frighten students.
Bold mine.

Imagine how these sensitive, precious little snowflakes would crap their pants on the shores of France with their contemporaries during D-Day. What an embarrassment to society...

Ooooops...

Adam Schiff: This Phone Record Proves that the OMB Called Rudy Giuliani. That Is All the Proof We Need That He Was Lobbying to Deny Ukraine Aid.
OMB: That's... That's not our phone number, dude
Adam Schiff: ...
Adam Schiff: But Russia


Quote:
Instead of deploying Oliver Darcy to pressure FaceBook and YouTube into deplatforming Adam Schiff as a constant source of fake news from foreign sources, they instead promote his every false claim.
Who called Rudy Giuliani from the White House, and who took his calls in the administration? Those question have been buzzing around the White House after phone logs were released Wednesday detailing how President Trump's personal lawyer back-channeled diplomacy to Ukraine.

But the phone calls, a presidential spokesperson told RealClearPolitics, were not coming from inside the Office of Management and Budget: "No one from OMB has talked to Giuliani."

Live Action Yaniv!

Quote:
BREAKING: Jessica Jonathan Yaniv is at the BC Provincial Court right now. Yaniv faces 2 counts for violating the Firearms Act. The maximum sentence a judge can hand down is 6 months in prison, for each count. I'll be live tweeting as I am able. pic.twitter.com/oCAcTilRNq

— Keean Bexte 🇨🇦🇭🇰 (@TheRealKeean) December 5, 2019
#YanivLive I'm sitting outside of the courtroom, and Jessica Yaniv is furiously running between Sheriffs, in pumps that don't fit, demanding certain people are thrown out of the courthouse.
This is… something.

Bloomberg: His news reporters need to accept restrictions

Quote:
Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg says employees at his news organization need to accept restrictions with their paycheck, including the ban on investigating their boss.

Bloomberg, billionaire founder of Bloomberg News, was asked in a CBS News interview about rules put in place when he announced his candidacy: The organization’s reporters are not allowed to probe him and his finances, or any of his Democratic rivals.
If I didn't know better, I'd say he'd got his cue from Prinz Dummkopf...

Jonathan Turley: ‘They Even Threatened My Dog’ For Defending Trump at Impeachment Hearings

Quote:
“I don’t understand where the anger comes from.”
Then you don't undersand Progs...

Quote:
Law professor Jonathan Turley revealed that even his dog was violently threatened after he testified in favor of President Trump during the impeachment hearings.

Turley already spoke about death threats he received following his testimony last week, but went further in an interview with CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell.

“I know you received a lot of threats after what you did last week,” O’Donnell told the George Washington University law professor.

“And my wife and dog,” Turley responded.
