darkly amusing given the pill issues on long island among the white population. not sure what they blame that on.
Trump blamed that on the Mexicans during his campaign ("they're bringing in the drugs, that's why we need A Wall"), which probably played a good part in how he won.

I'd like it very much if more people would take the "well, that's not really my cup of tea, but I'm glad you've found something that you enjoy" stance.

Apparently, that's just not How Things Are Done.

They got Russia's date wrong too; IIRC the serfs weren't freed until the 1860s.

Come to think of it, wasn't Brazil's emancipation law something like a generation later than the US Civil War? Jesus, they got damned near everything wrong here.

Wokieleaks speculates that the writer created a bulletpoint list with auto-formatting in Word, and didn't even bother entering dates, which is why the years are sequential. 'Cause while the 1797 date is funny, all of the dates after France are obviously wrong.

What sort of auto-format has bullets and numbers? I've only seen one or the other.

Good point, but you can remove bulletpoint from the description; hypothesis is that he was using a list function and paying no attention to the dates. Bulletpoints could be formatted in later. Auto-format has to be the culprit at some stage, combined with complete negligence by the writer and editors. Assuming the site's posts are edited at all before they go up.

Boy, McMegan has revealed why she targets extraordinarily easy and dumb targets in her articles. Her twitter feed is a trainwreck of idiocy and I don't think see realizes how bad she's coming off.

[Checks feed] Yikes. Is she actually upset that non-citizen residents count as "population" for representative purposes, or is she only bringing this up to defuse complaints about "prison gerrymandering"? It's pretty damned stupid either way.

She doesn't see how getting additional congressional representation/power for your region might be an "incentive?"

She claims that prison gerrymandering is insincere because they don't complain about immigrants, so the non-voting thing only goes one way. Of course, she has completely ignored when people said that children also cannot vote, count for the Census and literally no one complains about that.

Stop hiring immigrants because they work to hard!
Omitting the i-word in discussions of labor-force dropout is an unfortunate habit of both the Left and the Right. Amy Wax and I wrote our Inquirer op-ed (based on a much longer essay in American Affairs) to show that employers turned to immigrants as the native work ethic declined. As evidence, we point both to the much higher labor-force participation of low-skill immigrants compared to low-skill natives, and to the near-universal preference expressed by employers for immigrant labor. Restricting the flow of foreign workers would generate a major incentive for business owners, politicians, and opinion leaders to reintegrate American men into the labor force. It is, in our opinion, a crucial part of any reform strategy.

It's by the dude that got fired from Heritage for saying Hispanics have low IQs. So it's funny that the dude got his PhD on scholarship that Latino immigrants are inferior to native whites, but now thinks we should close off immigration because they're harder-working.
