They lay out the numbers fairly clearly.  Leaves plenty of room for parents separated from their children and having legit angst about it.  Just doesnt describe as high a percentage of the cases as the left would have you believe

"The left" (or you know, the news) doesn't cite a "percentage."  They cite the number of children separated and detained, a number that came from the Trump Administration.

Exactly

They disregard the others - thats the point

Really?  That’s the point?  Because just a post before, your point was that “the Left” was misrepresenting the percentage of cases involved to make the problem seem bigger than it is, as if over 2,000 children, including toddlers, taken away from their parents is a problem whose horrors are captured by percentages.   

And disregarding the others when the subject is the Trump Admin taking children away from families that wanted to stay together makes sense, when those cases do not involve the Trump Admin taking children away from families that wanted to stay together.

The piece you were so anxious we read that you linked to it twice was pure bigotry couched in faux statistical analysis.  Your realizing that is maybe why you now try to misrepresent its argument, but no worries kidcarter8, everyone here already knows what kind of a person you are.

Trump wants more tax cuts for the rich.

If the Dems can't figure out how to run against the GOP with this kind of fodder readily available, they should get out of the business of politics.

An irresponsible, inept and corrupt President blames the free press and the journalists who dare to expose him. And the white-trash deplorables, too stupid to understand that most of them will soon be victims, as they trade democracy for pennies on the $, blames the messenger.

"I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public,” Trump said. “Already spoke to NRA, doesn’t seem to make much sense!”

Blind squirrel found an acorn.
Bl8nd squirrel created the acorn. It is a Trump reversal of an Obama position that made it legal to sell the plans to printable guns.

Yep.  How vexing must it be whenever Trump trips over policy crafted solely to give the finger to Obama.   Trump never seems to understand an issue until he takes a contrarian stance and the harmful liabilities of said stance are pointed out.   He can't just admit that the prior Antichrist administration sometimes did have a sensible idea.

Not that he really is intellectually capable of understanding why the proliferation of unregistered and invisible to metal detector weapons might be a problem.   I'm sure his concern is potential lost profits of gun manufacturers. 

Legislative sanity will come when the first whack job with a "ghost gun" is found roaming the Rayburn office building hunting fresh congress-meat.

You just confused Tony V.

High speed trains work in Japan,  but the Japanese actually use mass transit which is how mass transit needs to be supported.   Without massive ridership,  you just have an expensive monument to green idealism.   Many alternatives in California,  but they aren't as sexy as HS rail.    I will read the piece you cited.

Its nice not to be a third world state with republican office holders constantly fucking over the population and abusing the budget. It gives you the resources to implement infrastructure projects instead of letting everything devolve into derelict monuments to the New Deal.

3-D printer guns will be a hundred times the nightmare that legal military style weapons are now.   Unregistered, untraceable, invisible.   If Trump can't man up and admit his administration goofed on this,  then he deserves whatever happens to him.   You'd think stopping this kind of weapon would be one matter all politicians could agree on,  at a very visceral level.   I. E. SELF PRESERVATION.  I don't get why the web hasn't exploded over this today.   The blueprints go up TOMORROW.

3D printed guns are being handled the way things are while our country doesn’t have a functioning presidency or legislature.

Crime owns all of the GOP. Walk down every issue and these scumbags are universally pro crime.

California needs to build the high speed trains faster, because the price seems to be going up over time. In the future the prices are just going to be higher. And along with the California high speed rail, we need to build high speed rail between Anaheim and Las Vegas. 

And one section of the high speed train that needs to be built now is a high speed train between Los Angeles and Lancaster, and that will generate a lot of money in support of the project.

Of note too, is that it will help make for a nicer experience for tourists. Tourists could hop on a high speed train in Los Angeles and go to the wine country, etc. Tourism creates over one hundred and sixty thousand jobs in Orange County alone, and the high speed rail will make it nicer for the tourists. 

Our high speed trains need to happen quickly, we need to work on more locations to get it all done faster. The best way to keep the prices down is to get it built, and then get it making money from lots of ridership.

Have you seen how crowded the 405 freeway is in Los Angeles? And the other freeways are crowded too. California has the worst traffic in the nation. So, because we have the worst traffic, we need solutions, and the high speed trains will help. It only makes sense that California should have high speed trains. Then there there is also the issue of clean transportation, etc, and going green makes everyone feel better. 

Salute,

Tony V.

People in Californa have never shown any particular inclination to get out of their cars. High-speed rail seems an expensive gamble.
