So, Twitchy brought this to my attention. 

‘Air temperature is patriarchal microaggression’: NYT writer assigns blame for chilly work conditions

It’s referencing an article from the NY Times, which supposedly explains why women are cold in office buildings.  It turns out the buildings were designed from an old formula  ….

which considers factors like air temperature, air speed, vapor pressure and clothing insulation, using a version of Fanger’s thermal comfort equation.

PMV = [0.303e-0.036M + 0.028]{(M W) – 3.96E-8ƒcl[(tcl + 273)4 – (tr + 273)4] – ƒclhc(tcl – ta) – 3.05[5.73 – 0.007(M – W) – pa] – 0.42[(M – W) – 58.15] – 0.0173M(5.87 – pa) – 0.0014M(34 – ta)}

It is converted to a seven-point scale and compared against the Predicted Percentage Dissatisfied, a gauge of how many people are likely to feel uncomfortably cool or warm. …. … one variable in the formula, resting metabolic rate (how fast we generate heat), is based on a 40-year-old man weighing about 154 pounds.

Maybe that man once represented most people in offices. But women now constitute half of the work force and usually have slower metabolic rates than men …..

Of course, this is how the building is designed.  It says nothing towards the actual setting of the thermostat.  I promise you, no building manager, no office manager, no one adjusting the thermostat is running that formula before setting the thermostat. 

But, I digress.  These weren’t the things in the article which popped out at me.  These were ……..

Finally, scientists (two men, for the record) are urging an end to the Great Arctic Office Conspiracy. Their study, published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change, says that most office buildings set temperatures based on a decades-old formula that uses the metabolic rates of men.  The study concludes that buildings should “reduce gender-discriminating bias in thermal comfort” because setting temperatures at slightly warmer levels can help combat global warming.

That’s nice!  The jounal Nature Climate Change has taken up the evil patriarchal office conspiracy!  Because  …. Climate!!!!  Or something.  This is one of the rags the lunatics often quote when they’re pretending to understand actual science.  ……. Oh, did I say “science”?  Well, yes, I did!  Also from the article …….

But his study offers another solution: Change the formula.

The researchers tested 16 women, students in their 20s, doing seated work wearing light clothes in rooms called respiration chambers, which track oxygen inhaled and carbon dioxide exhaled. Skin temperature was measured on hands, the abdomen and elsewhere. A thermometer pill the women swallowed reported internal body temperature.

Oh, well, that seals it then!!!!  They did test 16 women in their 20s!!!!!  Measuring the temps of these young nubile college girls women on hands, the abdomen and elsewhere. 

This is what passes for climate science, today. 

Sometimes, I think if it weren’t for my morals, quest for truth, and possessive wife with a mean streak, I could be feeling up 16 young nubile women, getting paid for it, and then getting published.  But, we’re all better for this.  We all now know just a little bit more about climate “science”.

Question To Climate Lunatics: If And When We Stopped Human Caused Climate Change, How Will We Know?

image

So, team Zero and the rest of the imbeciles are trying to put the final nail in the coffin of one of the greatest industries in the history of this nation. 

All of this and much more in pursuit of some ambiguous state of climate which has never been defined.  None of the lunatics have ever attempted to define the ideal state of climate. 

So, we’re going to issue edicts and mandates to accomplish nothing towards the stated end goal, because no one has a notion as to what the stated end goal is.  

This is because the stated end goal isn’t the goal at all, but, rather, a means towards a much more malicious end ….. that is control and impoverishment of the common people. 

It is complete stupidity to work towards a goal one cannot define.

Question: Do You Believe Our Government Is Intentionally Subjecting The American People To Really Horrid People?

ALLEGED CHILD MOLESTER KEPT DACA AMNESTY DESPITE RISK DESIGNATION

image

A California camp counselor — now charged with child molestation and distribution of child pornography— was able to maintain his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status and job prior to his arrest despite being considered a “potentially egregious public safety,” the Obama administration has revealed to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA).

In response to questions from Grassley earlier this year, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services confirm that the camp counselor charged with child molestation, Edgar Covarrubias-Padilla, received DACA status on May 22, 2013. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was aware that he was under investigation for child molestation November 17, 2014, according to Grassley’s office.

USCIS, however, was not aware of the investigation until March 31, 2015, despite the fact that USCIS said ICE “typically apprise[s] USCIS when a recipient of DACA or an immigration benefit is an investigative target.”

Covarrubias-Padilla’s DACA status was terminated six days after his arrest on May 13, 2015

In a letter to DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson dated Thursday, Grassley presses for more details on how Covarrubias-Padilla slipped though the cracks.

“Although the Director’s response letter states that “ICE field offices typically apprise USCIS when a recipient of DACA or an immigration benefit is an investigative target,” in this case, USCIS failed to learn of the investigation until months later on March 31, 2015,” Grassley writes.

“Despite both components’ knowledge of Covarrubias-Padilla’s investigation by March of 2015, and a referral to the Background Check Unit (BCU) as a “potentially egregious public safety case,” the revocation of DACA did not occur until May, 13, 2015, several days after his arrest,” he added.

Read the letter: ……

You can read the letter at the link provided.

And, then there’s this to highlight some people in our government who seems to have an ardent support of such criminals, this comes in response to the senseless and savage murder of a young lady in San Fran, by a 5 time deported, career convicted criminal in which authorities allowed him to roam the US with impunity. 

MOTHERS OF CHILDREN KILLED BY ILLEGALS DEMAND DEMOCRATS CENSURE LUIS GUTIERREZ

image

The Remembrance Project’s director Maria Espinoza, speaking for the family members who lost children to illegal aliens, demanded that Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL)be censured for attacking an expert witness testifying to the dangers sanctuary cities pose to Americans.

Gutierrez exploded on Center for Immigration Studies’ Jessica Vaughan after she pointed out that he called the death of Kathryn Steinle ” a little thing” during a Telemundo interview — and three mothers attending the hearing walked out in disgust. Laura Wilkerson, Sabine Durden, and Mary Ann Mendoza explicitly stated their anger and disappointment in Gutierrez in stark terms to Breitbart News. Now, these mothers, along with Espinoza, demand that Democrats in Congress censure him for his cold dismissal of Steinle’s death and his bullying of Vaughan.

Espinoza says Gutierrez must be stripped of his membership on the House Judiciary Committee and personally apologize to the families attending the hearing.

The full letter, obtained by Breitbart News, reads:

I write to you in regard to a recent extreme and deliberately insensitive tirade by a member of the United State Congress unleashed in a public hearing against a female expert witness testifying on behalf of American families whose loved ones have been killed by illegal aliens.

On July 23 of this year, in the House Judiciary Committee hearing on Sanctuary City policies, Luis Gutierrez of Illinois spoke these words to Ms. Jessica Vaughn, the expert witness who was invited guest and a surviving family member whose loved one was killed by an illegal alien. View video.

Gutierrez’s public outrage, apparently provoked by a public recitation of his very own racially and politically-motivated speech trivializing the horrific death of a young woman killed by an illegal alien felon, five times deported, has caused an American outrage.

On July 16, 2015, Representative Luis Gutierrez, speaking in Spanish referred to the cold-blooded murder of Kathryn Steinle as just a “little thing.” View video. This very public display not only clearly demonstrated Gutierrez’s complete lack of compassion for this grieving American family, but also for the tens of thousands of families whose loved ones have been killed by illegal aliens.

This public servant’s extremely inappropriate and insensitive comments must be addressed swiftly and with a strong censure so as to discourage other public servants from exhibiting such vicious behavior. We demand the following immediate course of action:

1. Gutierrez be stripped of his membership on the House Judiciary Committee. ….

You can read the list of demands at the link provided.

Gutierrez is a piece of work!  He seems to think if he says one thing on the House floor, in English, that he can say whatever he really thinks in Spanish, and not be called on it.  That racist a-hole doesn’t understand that there are millions of gringos and gringas who can speak Spanish.   

Now, many people will try to explain these events away as rare occurrences, and some people just slip through the cracks.  But, as Mrs. Espinosa notes, there are “tens of thousands of families” who don’t believe these are rare occurrences. 

But, if they are, indeed, just some people who ‘slipped through the cracks’, no one in our government seems interested in filling the cracks.  Indeed, just look to Rep Gutierrez’ reaction to people insisting that someone does something about this crime wave!  Not only is he not interested in fixing the problem, he attacks the very people victimized by this needless problem!  And, of course, Gutierrez isn’t an isolated incidence.  The attack on the victims is constant in this regard.  Indeed, all of America are victims of this abuse of our benevolence and good nature. 

It just seems to me that our government is intentional, and if not intentionally, at the very least, knowingly, subject our citizenry with all sorts of depraved lunatics.  From murderers, to child molesters, to Islamic terrorists, no one in our government seems to really care that much.  People pointing out this problem are attacked, even in our own congress, and, the people proposing solutions such as securing the damned border are vilified. 

This is depravity.

Gems 2015 — August 3 Scripture Selection: Psalm 115-116

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

August 3 Scripture Selection: Psalm 115-116

Food for Thought: Ps. 115:2-11

The Lord is not at all intimidated or threatened by idols. They can do nothing. They have absolutely no power within themselves. They cannot perform anything, while His works are beyond measure. The main reason why He objects to people bowing down to and relying on idols—even those with Christian, religious appearance—is that those who do are substituting Him for something so very inferior that they can see and touch with human eyes and hands, instead of trusting in the invisible God. And Satan wants nothing better than to keep people from trusting in the One true God alone.

I Corinthians 10:19-20 speaks of the demonic influence behind idols, regardless of their benign, “goodly” appearance:

“What am I saying then? That an idol is anything, or what is offered to idols is anything? Rather, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice they sacrifice to demons and not to God, and I do not want you to have fellowship with demons.”

True faith can never be reliant on objects that we can see. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Heb. 11:1).” And true faith, one that is not directed toward or reliant on man-made objects, is what really pleases God (Heb. 11:6). Just as Jesus told Thomas that the people who believed that He had risen from the dead without having seen the holes from the nails that pierced His hands and the sword that pierced His side were more blessed than he was (John 20:25-29). True believers “walk by faith, not by sight (II Cor. 5:7).”

“Therefore, my beloved,” the apostle Paul says, “flee from idolatry (I Cor. 10:14).” Make the Lord the entire object of your attention and trust. “You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord; He is their help and their shield (Ps. 115:11).”

Gems 2015 — August 2 Scripture Selection: Psalm 113-114

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

August 2 Scripture Selection: Psalm 113-114

Food for Thought: Ps. 114

The earth and sea offer evidence that corroborates the accounts referred to in Psalm 114, as well as many other scriptures that document biblical events, revealing that the Bible is not a collection of mere fairy tales that could not possibly have taken place; rather, it is a dependable source that points to the one true God and His plan to save from destruction everyone who would believe in Him. Though our faith is not dependent on man offering proof of the Bible and God’s existence, the Lord has, indeed, left evidence for the doubters to find.

First, the Psalm makes reference to the Israelites (the “house of Jacob”) leaving Egypt. The account of this can be found in Exodus 12:30-41; 13:17, 18. (For the events leading up to this, you may wish to begin in the book of Genesis chapters 37 through 50 and continue through the first eleven books of Exodus to get the background story.) There is archaeological evidence that points to the fact that the Israelites, referred to as “Asiatic foreigners,” did dwell in Egypt for a time. For instance, pottery and architecture found in Egypt match those found in Canaan. Also, a tomb containing the statue depicting an Asiatic dignitary was found, but no bones were found in it—only a pit and a tunnel dug leading up to the burial chamber, which correlates with the biblical account of the removal of Joseph’s bones during the exodus of the Israelites. Artwork and other archaeological findings also seem to confirm what the Bible asserts.

Then there is the fact that “the sea saw it (the exodus of the Israelites) and fled (vs. 3),” referring to the parting of the Red Sea as documented in Exodus 14:19-29. Interestingly, there is a place at the bottom of the Red Sea where several Egyptian chariot wheels coated with barnacles and such can be found, matching the biblical account of the Egyptians being swallowed up by the sea as they pursued the Hebrews who had walked across it on dry land.

Once again the Israelites experienced a miracle when they crossed the Jordan River on dry land, which this Psalm refers to in verse three (See Joshua 3:13-17). Scripture mentions the city Adam further upstream where the water was blocked. This occurrence has been observed historically several times and has been attributed to earthquakes and mudslides, but is nonetheless providential because of the precise timing and location where the Israelites were directed to cross.

Then there is the rock that was turned “into a pool of water,” and the “flint into a fountain of waters (vs. 8). This is in reference to Exodus 17:1-6 and again in Numbers 20:1-10 when the Lord provided water to the multitude. While the exact location of the rock cannot be determined, archaeologists have found a very unusually shaped large rock matching the scriptural description with a split in it and a smooth surface that could only have been caused by a great amount of water.

While faith does not come from what one can observe with human eyes, the earth and sea do offer up evidence that confirms the events of the Bible. But even if it didn’t, it doesn’t nullify the Bible. The Bible can stand on its own, offering everything we need to really believe and receive the benefits of God. So it is far better to believe based on His Word (Rom. 10:17). Jesus told Thomas, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed (John 20:29).” Take that step and believe, and He will prove Himself to you.

What Global Warming Has Done To Our Crop Production And Comparison To World Population Growth!!!!!

Well, like most other things, the climate lunatics entirely and utterly fail to understand what progress is and does.  How we apply our energy and the near infinite resources this globe has.  There are two reasons why I crossed out the word “near”.  The globe’s resources are infinite 1) because of physics.  Humans can neither create nor destroy matter.  We can only change the properties.  And 2)  Humans are constantly finding new ways to change matter (and energy’s) properties.

The climate lunatics and the “overpopulation” zealots, (most often one in the same) completely fail to grasp these 2 truisms. 

So, we’re told the planet is warming and has been accelerating since about the 60s or so.  One of the many horrors predicted by the lunatics is that global warming will cause crop production to decrease.  FAOSTAT (a UN organization) keeps track of our global crop production.  They have many different ways to view this and many different categories, some of which are crossover categories.  Ensuring there is no double counting, there are nine categories which would total global crop production if summed.  Cereals, Roots and Tubers, Coarse Grain, Vegetables & Melons, Fruit excl Melons, Pulses, Fibre Crops Primary, Treenuts, and Jutes.  Typically, I don’t graph the bottom 4 because one can’t easily graph them with the top five crop production categories.  Today, I thought I’d show them both on separate graphs ….

image  image

With the exception of Jutes, everything seems to be going swimmingly!  Can someone please show me the crop production disruption caused by global warming?!?!?!?!?!?!

And, as a bonus, for the overpopulation dimwits …… here’s our total crop production in tonnes compared to the world’s population over the same time period. ….

image

We are producing more food per person in the world than any other time in history of this world.  World population is expected to peak around 2050 ……. assuming the lunatics allow civilization to continue.  It is the underdeveloped nations which contribute to population growth.  Developed societies have a near zero or some even under zero population growth.  In order to develop the 3rd world, we need (gasp!!!)  cheap and reliable fuel and energy. 

The depravity of the lunatics and their advocacy, combined with their intentional ignorance of basic facts remains unfathomable for me. 

As mentioned above, the source for the graphs is FAOSTAT.

Supply And Demand …… Two Of The Many Things Climate Lunatics Don’t Understand!!

image

It has always boggled my mind when the lunatics thought they were sticking it to big oil by advocating the decrease in oil production …… such as what they’re doing over the Keystone pipeline.  I’ve repeatedly try to explain to the lunatics the oil companies don’t care if they restrict production.  They simply raise the prices to match the availability.  Less oil and gas availability increases the profit margins of the oil companies …….. always!

The reason for this is as simple as one of the most basic economic principles ……. the law of supply and demand.  The cold hard fact is that the demand for oil is still growing.  And, it will continue to grow until there is a proper alternative.  Wind, solar, corn squeezins ……. none of them, even combined presents a viable alternative to oil and natural gas, or even coal.  As impoverished nations modernize, they demand energy, the cheaper the better! 

So, what happens when oil producing nations and big oil companies dramatically increase oil production?

Exxon profit falls by half but production rises

NEW YORK (AP) — Exxon Mobil Corp. profit dropped by half in the second quarter on sharply lower oil and gas prices around the world, but the company’s oil and gas production, which has been generally declining in recent years, surged.

The company posted net income for the second quarter of $4.19 billion, down 52 percent from $8.78 billion in the second quarter of last year. It was Exxon’s lowest quarterly profit since June of 2009, when the nation was in recession and oil and gas prices had plummeted.

Exxon’s revenue for the quarter of $74.11 billion, down 33 percent from last year, was also the company’s lowest since 2009.

On a per-share basis Exxon earned $1, down from $2.05 last year and less than the $1.11 per share expected by analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research. Exxon shares fell 4.7 percent to $79.15 in morning trading.

Lower global oil and gas prices hit all oil and gas companies hard in the quarter, reducing revenue and profit, and forcing most to reduce investment into new projects. Exxon cut its capital expenditures by 16 percent in the quarter to $8.26 billion.

The average price of U.S. crude oil in the second quarter fell by 44 percent compared to last year, and the U.S. natural gas price was down 40 percent, according to the Energy Department.

For the second straight quarter, Exxon’s U.S. exploration and production operations posted a loss, a surprise to some analysts who had hoped that the company would be able to cut costs enough to stem losses.

“The surprise really was here in the U.S.,” said Brian Youngberg, an analyst at Edward Jones. “You’d think production would have shown some improvement.”

Exxon’s refining and chemical operations, however, performed well, especially outside of the U.S. Together, the company’s downstream and chemicals earnings rose 77 percent to $2.8 billion, led by a 5-fold increase in refining earnings abroad. Refining and chemical operations generally perform well when oil and gas prices fall because it lowers the cost of raw materials.

And Exxon’s production of oil and gas, which has been declining in recent years, showed a strong gain for the second quarter in a row. Overall production rose 4 percent, and production of oil — which is generally more profitable than natural gas — rose 12 percent.

“Production volume growth has begun to show some traction and that is definitely a positive,” Youngberg said.

Exxon shares have decreased 10 percent since the beginning of the year, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has climbed slightly more than 2 percent. The stock has decreased 20 percent in the last 12 months.

You see, the lower the supply, the more they get per unit, the more supply the less per unit. 

Wanna stick to big oil?  Then advocate cheap fuel. 

In other words, you climate lunatics have been played for decades.  Idiot tools!

Aww ….. Poor CEO Socialist Losing His Pants On Idiotic Pay Hike!

image

This gives me the giggles!

Seattle CEO who set firm’s minimum wage to $70G says he has hit hard times

The Seattle CEO who reaped a publicity bonanza when he boosted the salaries of his employees to a minimum of $70,000 a year says he has fallen on hard times.

Dan Price, 31, tells the New York Times that things have gotten so bad he’s been forced to rent out his house.

Only three months ago Price was generating headlines—and accusations of being a socialist — when he announced the new salary minimum for all 120 employees at his Gravity Payments credit card processing firm. Price said he was doing it, and slashing his $1 million pay package to pay for it, to address the wealth gap.

“I’m working as hard as I ever worked to make it work,” he told the Times in a video that shows him sitting on a plastic bucket in the garage of his house. “I’m renting out my house right now to try and make ends meet myself.”

The Times article said Price’s decision ended up costing him a few customers and two of his “most valued” employees, who quit after newer employees ended up with bigger salary hikes than older ones.

“He gave raises to people who have the least skills and are the least equipped to do the job, and the ones who were taking on the most didn’t get much of a bump,” Gravity financial manager Maisey McMaster, 26, told the paper.

She said when she talked to Price about it, he treated her as if she was being selfish and only thinking about herself.

“That really hurt me,” she said. “I was talking about not only me, but about everyone in my position.”

Yes, it’s so selfish to want to get paid for your efforts.  Look, if the boss wants me to bust my a$$ and work hard for him/her, then they can’t pay the ones who don’t the same as me.  Why would I put out the extra effort if it isn’t going to be rewarded?  Or, put another way …….

….. .

Grant Moran, 29, also quit, saying the new pay-scale was disconcerting

“Now the people who were just clocking in and out were making the same as me,” he told the paper. “It shackles high performers to less motivated team members.”

Price said McMaster and Moran, or even critic Rush Limbaugh, the talk show host, were not wrong.

“There’s no perfect way to do this and no way to handle complex workplace issues that doesn’t have any downsides or trade-offs,” he said.

The Times said customers who left were dismayed at what Price did, viewing it as a political statement. Others left fearful Gravity would soon hike fees to pay for salary increases.

Brian Canlis, co-owner of a family restaurant, already worried about how to deal with Seattle’s new minimum wage, told Price the pay raise at Gravity “makes it harder for the rest of us.”

“It pains me to hear Brian Canlis say that,” Price said. “The last think I would ever want to do is make a client feel uncomfortable.”

Well, right, because we didn’t think one person giving out ludicrous raises doesn’t pressure other employees to boost their wages.   

The Times said Price has dozens of new clients inspired by his move but those accounts won’t start generating profits for at least another year.

Making matters worse for Price is a lawsuit his older brother filed two weeks after the pay hike announcement.

Lucas Price, who owns 30 percent of the company, accuses his brother of taking millions of dollars out of the company while denying him the benefits of his minority ownership.

The lawsuit has forced Gravity to pay mounting legal fees at a time when the new salary scale is being eaten up by profits.

“We don’t have a margin of error to pay those legal fees,” Dan Price said.

I suppose the best lesson to learn here is that businessmen are not economists.  I assume Dan Price has some ability and knowledge in one area or another, but, clearly even micro-economics are beyond him.

Gems 2015 — August 1 Scripture Selection: Psalm 111-112

Guest post by Jeanette Andrade

August 1 Scripture Selection: Psalm 111-112

Food for Thought: Ps. 111:10; 112:1

We can gain wisdom to live in this world and make the right decisions in every situation by doing one thing: lovingly and reverently keeping the Lord first in our lives. If we love Him and honor Him, we will desire to please Him in every decision, and that will be the gauge by which we measure our decisions and contemplate our options. So many choices can be eliminated just by holding that standard, which will result in us making wise choices and, therefore, being considered wise.

Of course, involved in the process is our willingness to do His commandments (not to earn righteous, but because we love the Lord). And for the believer in Jesus Christ, the commandments can all be condensed to one word: LOVE (Mat. 22:38-40; see also Mat. 5:43-48). Clarifying this even more, Jesus gave a “new commandment” that involves loving one another just as He loves (unconditionally), which is only possible really by receiving Him as Lord and allowing Him to love through us. He said in John 13:34, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” Everything we do, in order to truly be wise, will be based on His love in us.

In I John 2:3-11, the apostle John very bluntly says that whoever hates his brother is still in darkness, and the love of God is not in him. That type of person, wandering in darkness, is incapable of making wise choices. The apostle James contrasts in James 3:13-18 the “earthly wisdom” of one in darkness to that of the godly:

“Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.”

With the wisdom that comes from God, there is no confusion, and we are able to do everything based on the motive of love for Him and others. As a result, the righteous reap many other benefits (see Ps. 112). So the wisest thing we could ever do is love the Lord.

Tips And Open Thread ….. For Just A Little Bit!

image

So, I’ve to go run for a bit to practice.  I will be back to make a few posts, though, later.  I wanted to squeeze a few in but, they all seem related, and, thus, one lengthy post.  …….. But, I don’t like lengthy posts….. so, I’ll rethink.  Maybe readers can chime in on some of the things I’m thinking about. …..

Trump and Cruz …. what’s their appeal to conservatives?  ….. Clinton and her ongoing lack of ethics ….. apparently, a private citizen has some of our classified documents on a thumb drive …. somewhere.  I don’t see Hillary beating Bernie Sanders in a Dim primary ……  He’s got their base.  Speaking of Bernie …. he says he’s not for an open, unfettered border, in that it hurts wages and jobs here in the US.  Apparently, he believes the border is somewhat protected. 

This time a legal green card holder murders Americans.  ……. and around and around we go!
