    Barack Obama showed his deft political touch today, and demonstrated his keen insight into the lives of the little people in this country, with a speech that is sure to be worth at least thirty points in Pennsylvania in the upcoming primary: You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them... And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade...
  • Small Town America Killed Immigration Bill

    In a classic application of bottom-up management denizens of small towns let their elected representatives in Washington D.C. know exactly how they expected them to handle the compromised immigration compromise bill that neither secured our borders, nor was any more enforceable than previous legislation it was meant to "fix."Earlier waves of immigrants – legal and illegal – flocked to CA, , FL, IL, NJ, NY and TX ("gateway" states) but have been dispersing across a wider swath of the U.S. since 2000. The foreign-born, non-English speaking populations of DE, GA, IN, NE, NV and SC have exploded, say demographers, with...

  • 'Mental health better' in country than in cities.

    People who live in the country have better mental health than those who live in towns and cities, researchers have said. Some theories have suggested that the isolation of rural living, the lack of social networks and difficulties accessing amenities have a negative impact on country-dwellers' mental health. But other studies have shown higher rates of common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety in urban areas, and also higher rates of suicides.

    This just in: Colorado Springs is a conservative city. Exactly how right-leaning the town is may come as a surprise, though. The Springs ranked as the sixth-most conservative city in America out of 237 with at least 100,000 residents, according to a survey released Thursday by a voting-research think tank. More on this topic America's most conservative cities America's most liberal cities It was the largest city in the top 12, outdistancing the next biggest city on the list by more than 100,000 people.

    The Associated Press ^ | May 18th, 2005 | RUKMINI CALLIMACHI
    On the 25th anniversary of the Mt. St. Helens eruption, survivors and loved ones, after uncovering duplicity in Carter administration records of the volcano and its potential dangers, are demanding an apology. Carter personally blamed the 57 people that died as being inside the Red Zone. In reality, the volcano's blast exceeded this governement-assigned area. The facts around this tragedy are classic Jimmy Carter duplicity, and are instructive of the real Carter, best described as a man that always found fault in others. A man of pettiness, self-absorbtion, and significantly-flawed judgement. All of which even today he and his media...

    WASHINGTON — With the Democratic Party splattered at his feet in little blue puddles, John Kerry told the crushed crowd at Faneuil Hall in Boston about his concession call to President Bush. "We had a good conversation," the senator said. "And we talked about the danger of division in our country and the need, the desperate need, for unity, for finding the common ground, coming together. Today I hope that we can begin the healing." Democrat: Heal thyself. W. doesn't see division as a danger. He sees it as a wingman. The president got re-elected by dividing the country along...

Regardless of the reason, Republicans have persuaded more voters to register on their side in the past four years and now outnumber Democrats in Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties, according to the latest voter registration tallies at the secretary of state's office. Before the last presidential election, more voters in the Northern San Joaquin Valley were registered as Democrats than Republicans. San Joaquin Republicans took the lead in 2002 and Stanislaus Republicans were edging out Democrats by the March primary this year. Overall, voter registration in Merced, San Joaquin and...
