koshersalaami commented on Ron Powell's blog post The Reality of Current American Immigration and Border Policy: It's Racism, Stupid!
"The only argument you’re likely to get from anyone sensible is about whether it’s bigotry or specifically racism, depending on how you define the targeted population, but that’s a semantics argument. This is about stereotyping and…"

"I don’t know about your experience, but my experience with Latin American immigrants is that they work their asses off. And it isn’t just liberals condemning this policy of taking kids from their families. The last critic of that policy…"

"What about when the Obamas spent thirty two trillion dollars on a toilet for the White House? What about when Michelle shot her Secret Service detail for being too slow when she ordered them to go get her some McDonalds fries at two in the morning?…"

koshersalaami commented on Johnny Robish's blog post NY Attorney General Goes After the Trump Foundation Charity
"Do you expect the NY AG not to do his job? We knew about some of this stuff during the campaign. I’m amazed it took this long. Why should Trump be given a free pass? Because he’s President?  If the Clintons or Obamas did exactly…"

"“Bust out joint?” That actually sounds like a pretty good description of Bain Capital. Not that Romney would have done that to the government itself. "

koshersalaami commented on Johnny Robish's blog post Sessions Cites The Bible To Justify Immigrant Family Separations
"More of them at least think they’re about WWJD than are willing to reject the New Testament outright. That alone makes it a more promising path.  In terms of making a case, I guess it depends on whether the purpose of what you write in a…"

koshersalaami commented on Johnny Robish's blog post Sessions Cites The Bible To Justify Immigrant Family Separations
"Politically, whether the New Testament is real or not is irrelevant. Sessions’ problem is not that he followed the New Testament in separating children from parents, his problem is that he didn’t follow it while claiming he did. The…"

Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)
