Candidate goes homeless to

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The Republican candidate for California governor said Thursday he spent a week living as a homeless person in Fresno to highlight the disparity between the governor´s claim that the state is making an economic comeback and the reality faced by the working poor. Neel Kashkari, a millionaire and former Goldman Sachs banker who is far behind Gov. Jerry Brown in pre-election polls, released a short documentary about the six nights he spent sleeping in parking lots and on park benches, and wrote about his experience in an opinion piece published in the Wall Street Journal. Kashkari, 41, said

just not impressive. I don´t know why he thinks this is compelling with the voters. If he is another bleeding heart welfare supporter, he is just another Dem with an (R) after his name.

He doesn´t get the concept that it is the middle class that will be voting and hoping for a change for the better. We are sik of sob stories, homeless people, the whole darned welfare thing, and a governor who was catting around Mexico, making promises that we´d take a bunch of illegals from Central America here.. Our hearts are bled out. You are tone-deaf, Neel.

This idiot compares to the idiots in New York that slept on the heated grates in New York City depriving the homeless of a warm place to sleep. This took place a number of years past.

Does he realize that thousands of illegals already in CA and more crossing, will take what little there is for the homeless ?

This is a GOP E concoction to attract their new base of democrat voters. They badly want the permanent, dependent, docile base that democrats now have. They´d rather lose for a few decades than have a single conservative vote.

I didn´t vote for Kashkari in the Republican primary, and was seriously considering skipping "governor" on the November ballot. I assumed Kashkari would run just another lackadaisical GOP establishment campaign.

However, I did read his op-ed in the WSJ and watched the video both titled, "Brother, Can You Spare a Job?" I was pleasantly surprised. This candidate is on the offensive. A stark departure from the usual California Republican.

His message is that California needs jobs, not more welfare or food stamps. The jobs will come when overbearing regulations and taxes are overturned and businesses have a chance to thrive. Only through thriving business can the people have jobs. He went to Fresno and the video highlights that California has not built water infrastructure to support farming in decades, and the results are fallow fields and no jobs.

This is an AP article attributed to "staff". Don´t let the lies and misrepresentations of the AP fool you. Go to the source and see Kashkari for yourself.

DES MOINES — Ben Carson sees bullies everywhere. Maybe that’s what happens after years of being walloped by stronger kids, and ridiculed by the smarter ones at his inner-city schools in Boston and Detroit. The bullying is central to the stories Carson tells about himself. Onstage here today in Iowa, where all presidential campaigns begin, he starts with a tale about studying hard enough to best his tormentors. “I went from the bottom of the class to the top of the class, much to the consternation of the students who called me ‘dummy,’ ” he says with a grin. “Now

Democrats are more afraid of global warming than the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global climate change is a major threat to the United States, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans. In contrast, 65 percent of Democrats believe that ISIS is a major threat, three points less than climate change. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans cited ISIS as a major threat -+ a partisan difference of 13 points. Eighty percent of Republicans also cite “Islamic extremist groups like al Qaeda” as

Alexander the Great. Stonewall Jackson. George S. Patton. To this list of some of history´s greatest military strategists, a new name must be added: that of Barack Obama. That is, if you agree with Joe Scarborough´s take on President Obama´s statement at yesterday´s press conference that "we don´t have a strategy yet" regarding possible attacks on ISIS in Syria. According to Scarborough, speaking on today´s Morning Joe, President Obama´s "no strategy" statement was "straight out of The Art of War where when you were weak, you make your enemies think you were strong.

NEW YORK- The family of an Arizona shooting range instructor accidentally killed by a 9-year-old girl while he was teaching her to use an Uzi said they feel sorry for the child. Instructor Charles Vacca was standing next to the girl on Monday at the Last Stop range in White Hills, Arizona, about 60 miles south of Las Vegas, when she squeezed the trigger. The recoil wrenched the Uzi upward, and the 39-year-old Vacca was fatally shot once in the head. His daughter, 19-year-old Ashley, told NBC´s "Today" show that the family knows it was a "tragic accident" and something

President Barack Obama´s trip to Westchester will tie up traffic through Friday afternoon, but a change in his schedule now calls for him to return to Washington, D.C. Friday night. The updated schedule was announced this morning by the White House. It is not clear whether the president still plans to return Saturday for the wedding of Sam Kass, the president´s senior policy adviser for nutrition, at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills. Here´s the rundown on the presidential visit: Obama will head from the airport to New Rochelle, where he´ll spend about an hour at a 25-person

A terror attack on the UK is now ´highly likely´, David Cameron said today. The Prime Minister´s remarks came after the official threat level was raised from substantial to severe - the second highest - amid growing fears over extremists returning from Iraq and Syria. Mr Cameron said ISIS now posed a ´greater and deeper threat to our security than we have known before´. The PM said terrorism was ´the most important issue facing this country today´. He also announced that new laws will be passed to make it easier to remove extremists´ passports if there are concerns they will travel

A tanker loaded with $100 million of crude oil that has been at the center of a dispute over Iraq´s oil billions vanished off the coast of Texas on Thursday. The Kurdish tanker disappeared from Coast Guard radar screens following a month of legal wrangling over whether it can offload its cargo in the U.S. As the disintegration of Iraq amid mounting violence continues, the semi-autonomous regime in Kurdistan – in the north of Iraq – is trying to cash in on Iraq´s oil reserves and export its own crude. Iraqi Kurdistan has exported at least eight million barrels of oil

Whether lamenting the so-called vacationer-in-chief´s swing of a golf club or criticizing his handling of the healthcare rollout, Republicans are getting in the habit of comparing President Obama to a monarch. "It´s one thing after another. You know he says he has no choice but to act. He says he has a pen and a phone and he´s going to act," Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) stated on Fox New´s "On the Record" Wednesday, making scepter-like gestures. "That doesn´t sound like our Republic," he added. "He´s not a king.

Lower corporate tax rates. Now.

The Obama administration is highly exercised about “inversion,” the practice by which an American corporation acquires a foreign company and moves its headquarters out of the United States to benefit from lower tax rates abroad. Not fair, says Barack Obama. It’s taking advantage of an “unpatriotic tax loophole” that hardworking American families have to make up for by the sweat of their brow. His treasury secretary calls such behavior a violation of “economic patriotism.” Nice touch. Democrats used to wax indignant about having one’s patriotism questioned. Now they throw around the charge with abandon, tossing it at corporations that refuse

In a statement from the White House on Thursday, President Obama addressed the world on fire. ISIS terrorists are losing arms and equipment because of U.S. strikes, Obama said, adding that “our focus right now is to protect American personnel on the ground in Iraq.” However, he also cautioned against rushing in. "I don´t want to put the cart before the horse, we don´t have a strategy yet," he said. The Daily Beast reported that the president asked for a war plan for ISIS in Syria by Friday.

He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear.

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

The American Sociological Association, the leading professional organization for American sociologists, is now granting its members much greater leeway in how to define their gender identities. Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.” Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named. “Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender
