Face of US changing;
elections to look different

Associated Press, by Nancy Benac & Connie Cass

Original Article

Washington - It´s not just the economy, stupid. It´s the demographics - the changing face of America. The 2012 elections drove home trends that have been embedded in the fine print of birth and death rates, immigration statistics and census charts for years. America is rapidly getting more diverse, and, more gradually, so is its electorate. Nonwhites made up 28 percent of the electorate this year, compared with 20 percent in 2000. Much of that growth is coming from Hispanics. The trend has worked to the advantage of President Barack Obama two elections in a row now and is not lost on Republicans

Comments:
Funny, I don´t remember voting to change the demographics of America. An increase in non-white voters (mainly Hispanic) of 8% in just 10 years? I wonder who we can thank for this?

We have absorbed wave after wave of immigrants. That is not the issue. The issue is reaching out to them, so they understand why we are fighting so hard to preserve the very country they wisely chose to immigrate to.

We filter out the highly skilled and productive through a labyrinthine imigration process and then open the gates to los pobres de la tierra.

Don´t let the opposition define your stance on immigration. Always say you are anti-ILLEGAL immigration, not anti-immigration. The attitude immigrants are slugs is the attitude what did Romney in.

As it now stands, many want free stuff no matter where they come from including non-hispanic countries. This trend needs to be reveresed.

One thing. The dems OWN the free stuff stuff. Always put that on their plate, its theirs. When we go Greece, we know who to blame.

I work in a primarily hispanic area in California. I think ROmney/GOP did a pretty good job defending why supporting job creators is important, but they didn´t--and we haven´t--really sold it to the "new demographic." For some reason, we think merely mentioning the virtue is enough to connect with the electorate.

We believe in self-interest!!!! So, we have to sell why capitalism is better for YOUR (every sector of the electorate) self-interest than a free phone and food stamps is.

Skin color again. The Left is obsessed with it. And the Left is determined to assign every American to a group, all of whose members think and behave alike. This, of course, is stereotyping, prejudice and bigotry. Americans are not defined by the color of their skin or their ethnic backgrounds. They are defined by belief in and adherence to a common core of cultural and moral values. These values have been under sustained attack by the institutional Left, beginning in academia, for half a century. The threat to America is not how many people have a certain skin color. That is simple racism and bigotry. The threat to America comes from the failure of our institutions of culture to embrace and transmit American values to fresh generations and those who emigrate to America in search of a better and more prosperous life. The Leftist establishment has long been busy killing the goose that lays the golden egg, entirely without understanding what they are doing. Like children, they imagine that the world that was here when they arrived in it just happened, made itself somehow, and will continue to sustain itself without effort on their part. They think they can tinker with it and improve it without the slightest understanding of how it works.

Obama To Name Jeh Johnson Next
Homeland Security Secretary
ABC News, by Mike Levin & Martha Radditz    Original Article

President Obama is expected to nominate former Pentagon lawyer Jeh Johnson as the next Homeland Security secretary, ABC News has learned. The Department of Homeland Security has been without a Senate-confirmed leader for six weeks, and from the start some Republicans were calling on the administration to "swiftly" nominate a new secretary. The White House has largely ignored such calls, as DHS has moved forward with top-agenda items even through the government shutdown. But now an announcement nominating Johnson is expected Friday afternoon, sources told

If a government shuts down in the forest and nobody hears it, that’s the sound of liberty dying. The so-called shutdown is, as noted last week, mostly baloney: Eighty-three percent of the supposedly defunded government is carrying on as usual, impervious to whatever restraints the people’s representatives might wish to impose, and the 800,000 soi-disant “non-essential” workers have been assured that, as soon as the government is once again lawfully funded, they will be paid in full for all the days they’ve had at home. But the one place where a full-scale shutdown is being enforced is in America’s alleged

Vienna - The UN nuclear watchdog has received a request from Russia to assess the impact if a missile were to hit a small Syrian reactor and is considering the issue, the Vienna-based agency said on Friday. Russia said this week a military strike on Syria could have catastrophic effects if the research reactor near Damascus that contains radioactive uranium was struck, "by design or by chance". It called on the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to urgently assess the risk as the United States considers military action to punish Syria´s government for an alleged gas attack.

President Barack Obama has released a statement following last evening´s verdict in the trial of George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was found not guilty of murder in the death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin. The verdict caused immediate controversy and there are a number of plans for protests. Here´s the full statement: "The death of Trayvon Martin was a tragedy. Not just for his family, or for any one community, but for America. I know this case has elicited strong passions. And in the wake of the verdict, I know those passions may be running even higher.

The Department of Homeland Security has been forced to release a list of keywords and phrases it uses to monitor social networking sites and online media for signs of terrorist or other threats against the U.S. The intriguing the list includes obvious choices such as ´attack´, ´Al Qaeda´, ´terrorism´ and ´dirty bomb´ alongside dozens of seemingly innocent words like ´pork´, ´cloud´, ´team´ and ´Mexico´.

California lawmakers OK a dozen
gun-control measures
Los Angeles Times, by Patrick McGreevy    Original Article
Posted By: chicodon- 5/30/2013 9:32:41 AM     Post Reply
Sacramento — California lawmakers Wednesday advanced a dozen gun-control measures, including background checks for ammunition buyers, and gave early approval to a tax penalty on the Boy Scouts for barring openly gay leaders. Legislators also voted for a new $75 charge on real estate transactions to pay for affordable-housing projects. Mass shootings such as the one in Newtown, Conn., in December spurred Democratic lawmakers to look for ways to tighten California´s gun laws, already some of the toughest in the nation. "We all can recite the horrific acts that have occurred in our country over the last year," said Senate

The case of the phantom ballots:
an electoral whodunit
Miami Herald, by Patricia Mazzei    Original Article
Posted By: chicodon- 2/24/2013 1:06:22 PM     Post Reply
The first phantom absentee ballot request hit the Miami-Dade elections website at 9:11 p.m. Saturday, July 7. The next one came at 9:14. Then 9:17. 9:22. 9:24. 9:25. Within 2½ weeks, 2,552 online requests arrived from voters who had not applied for absentee ballots. They streamed in much too quickly for real people to be filling them out. They originated from only a handful of Internet Protocol addresses. And they were not random. It had all the appearances of a political dirty trick, a high-tech effort by an unknown hacker to sway three key Aug. 14 primary elections,

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

   

 



 
In a Hole, Golf Considers

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
