Basketball, Children, and Church: TRUMP CHOOSES JUDGE BRETT KAVANAUGH FOR THE SUPREME COURT On Monday, President Trump announced that he chose Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the United States Supreme Court. Kavanaugh is from Bethesda, Maryland, and is well known in conservative legal circles. “He is a committed textualist and originalist, one whose time on the bench has revealed a unique ability to apply these principles to legal facts. He deeply believes in the constitutional separation of powers as a means for ensuring governmental accountability and protecting individual liberty. From the start of his career, he’s applied the Constitution faithfully, even when that made him a lonely voice. He has done so with particular tenacity on the issue that matters most to the president: taking power away from unelected bureaucrats and returning it to elected officials.” J.D. Vance in the Wall Street Journal as reported by Politico As a member of the DC court of appeals for 12 years, Kavanaugh dissented from the majority in the case of the illegal immigrant who wanted an abortion. He stated that allowing her to have such a procedure was “a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. Government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand.” By the time the Supreme Court got the case and denied her request, she already had the abortion. As a judge who holds tightly to the Constitution, Kavanaugh told the White House audience that a judge should “interpret the law, not make the law.” Brett Kavanaugh is active in the Catholic church, serving meals and tutoring students. He graduated from Yale and Yale law school, and has taught at Harvard and other schools. He tutors children, and coaches girls basketball. His wife Ashley is a former secretary to George W Bush. One criticism of Kavanaugh came from him granting an atheist standing in a court case against the Pledge of Allegiance, according to The Daily Wire. Critics also say that it was Kavanaugh whose decision to call Obamacare a “tax” that allowed Justice Roberts to uphold the disastrous healthcare program. https:-news.unclesamsmisguidedchildren.com-trump-chooses-judge-brett-kavanaugh-for-the-supreme-court- Scotus MAGA

America, Apparently, and Donald Trump: TUESDAY, DEC 19, 2017, 4:30 PM Dollar General: The Store for Rural America's "Permanent Recession" BY PETER FUNT Share У Tweet Reddit Ju StumbleUpon @ Email Print OLLAR GENERAL DOLLAR GENERAL The Dollar General Corporation, an American chain of variety stores, is headquartered in Goodlettsville, Tenn. (Image: bogleech: berniesrevolution: IN THESE TIMES There are 14,321 Dollar General stores in America. It’s a chain that many shoppers have never heard of, yet it has more stores than Starbucks. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Dollar General company is worth $22 billion—far more than the nation’s largest grocery chain, Kroger, which has five times the revenue. Sadly, however, Dollar General is thriving because, as the Journal puts it, “rural America is struggling.” The chain builds stores where folks are down on their luck, where 20 percent of customers receive government assistance, and where even Walmart won’t bother doing business. I phoned several Dollar General stores and learned that none sells fresh meat or produce; the grocery aisles feature mostly canned and frozen goods. Many products, such as soft drinks, come in mini-sizes to keep unit prices low. And few locations had newspapers for sale. Maybe that’s just as well, because headlines these days report that the stock market is remarkably high and unemployment is surprisingly low. But for rural America, news like that doesn’t hit home. Things are looking up in Donald Trump’s America, except, of course, where they are not. The administration’s proudest accomplishment is a tax bill that benefits millionaires and billionaires. The Joint Committee on Taxation finds that the Senate version of the bill would increase taxes on all Americans making less than $75,000 a year. As Paul Krugman summarizes in the New York Times: “Everything this president and this Congress are doing on economic policy seems designed, not just to widen the gap between the wealthy and everyone else, but to lock in plutocrats’ advantages, making it easier to ensure that their heirs remain on top and the rest stay down.” In rural America, where about 46 million people reside, employment and economic growth have not recovered from the last recession at a pace seen elsewhere in the nation. Childhood poverty—perhaps the most critical metric in determining a population’s well-being—is considerably higher in rural areas than in urban centers. The crisis facing rural America is rooted in the fact that peak-level employment related to natural resources, such as mining and logging, is never coming back. Rural America is mired in a permanent recession. Its problems are difficult to correct because of a sprawling landscape, scattered government support structures and what often seems to be federal indifference. Many among the predominantly white rural population voted for Trump in 2016—a sign, perhaps, of utter desperation rather than considered opinion. But according to recent reporting by Politico, Trump now intends to make the most sweeping changes to federal safety net programs in a generation, using legislation and executive actions to target recipients of food stamps, Medicaid and housing benefits. (Continue Reading) When tens of millions of people–both rural and suburban–are forced to use Dollar Tree and Dollar General as grocery stores because Wal-Mart is too expensive, it’s safe to say the middle class is truly dead. I was in shock moving out here to the pacific northwest and never seeing Dollar General anymore. Apparently there might be at least a couple here in Oregon, hours from us. Everywhere I previously lived from the east coast to the midwest, you were never more than 10 minutes from a dollar general as well as dollar tree. At Dollar Tree everything is $1, but that obviously puts some limitations on the quality and variety of goods. At Dollar General things can be up to $20, but we’re talking $20 for a whole office desk you put together. $5 for a pair of shoes. $3 for a nicer microwaveable meal than the stuff you’ll find at Dollar Tree. It was literally almost THE ONLY store within a 40 minute drive in the small Iowa town we were last living, too, exactly the situation this article talks about. That town had one other source of groceries, which was very small, and its prices jacked up because it knew a lot of people had no other choice.

Memes, California, and Wall Street Journal: Acredita Nisso? Pessoas que dormem pouCo podem ser mais alegres e magras, diz ciência ACREDITANISSOOFICIAL @ACREDITANISSO Marque seus amigos! ↗️ . Pessoas que dormiram muito pouco durante a noite ficam irritadas o dia inteiro. Quer dizer, as pessoas normais se sentem assim. Segundo reportagem do Wall Street Journal, cientistas da Universidade da Califórnia, nos Estados Unidos, identificaram uma espécie de “elite dos sem dormir”, um restrito grupo de pessoas que consideram o sono um desperdício de tempo. Ao invés de ficarem cansados e mal-humorados, estes indivíduos são enérgicos, otimistas e se contentam com apenas quatro ou cinco horas de descanso por noite. E o melhor é que, em geral, pessoas deste grupo tendem a ser mais magras, a ser capazes de manter dois empregos e a viver sem necessidade de cafeína e energéticos. Os cientistas estudaram uma família em que a mãe e a filha pareciam ser perfeitamente saudáveis, apesar de terem o hábito de dormir pouco. Testes do DNA das duas mostraram que elas têm uma pequena mutação em um gene chamado hDEC2. Este detalhe, porém, era ausente no DNA dos outros membros da família, que dormiam normalmente. Para comprovar a relação, os pesquisadores modificaram ratos geneticamente para sofrer a mutação, e estes também passaram a dormir menos. A descoberta pode ser útil para entender como é possível cortar horas de sono sem causar nenhum impacto na saúde, acarretando, por exemplo, na criação de remédios com este fim, mas que não nos prejudicam. Agora, a equipe de cientistas está estudando o DNA dos “membros” deste grupo que aceitaram ser voluntários. E a maioria destas pessoas compartilha de características invejáveis: são mais magros que a média, muito otimistas e bastante tolerantes à dor física e a transtornos psicológicos.

Club, cnn.com, and College: NEVER CONFUSE EDUCATION WITH INTELLIGENCE THIS PRISON DEBATE TEAM WENT UPAGAINST THEEREETHOUCHTPROJECTCOM THE PRESTIGIOUS HARVARD DEBATE TEAM... AND WON! New York inmates defeat Harvard debate team Story highlights The Eastern New York Correctional Facility's debate team has also beaten West Point The debate team is part of the Bard Prison Initiative, which has 300 inmates enrolled (CNN)In a debate between Harvard College students and those from any other college, some might guess that the Harvard students would win. And if the other side was a group of inmates at a maximum-security prison? Maybe even more so. That would be a mistake. Inmates from the Eastern New York Correctional Facility defeated the prestigious Harvard debate team in mid-September as part of the Bard Prison Initiative, a program run by Bard College to provide college education to qualifying prisoners, according to the Wall Street Journal. If you knew the prison debate club's record, you might have voted for the inmates. They've defeated a nationally ranked team from the University of Vermont and the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. (They lost a rematch against West Point, and it's become something of a rivalry.) The prison club had invited the Harvard College Debating Union to participate. Inmates had to defend a point of view with which they fiercely disagreed, a common practice in debate competition: "Resolved: Public schools in the United States should have the ability to deny enrollment to undocumented students." After the debate, Carlos Polanco told the Wall Street Journal that he would never want to keep a child from attending school but that he was grateful for his chance to attend Bard College in prison. "We have been graced with opportunity," said Polanco, 31, who is in prison for manslaughter. "They make us believe in ourselves." The Harvard club seemed to take the loss gracefully. "Three members of the HCDU had the privilege of competing against members of the Bard Prison Initiative's debate program," the group posted on its Facebook page. "There are few teams we are prouder of having lost a debate to than the phenomenally intelligent and articulate team we faced this weekend, and we are incredibly thankful to Bard and the Eastern https:-www.google.com-amp-s-amp.cnn.com-cnn-2015-10-07-living-harvard-deba
