    The Jewish birthrate in Jerusalem is higher than the Arab birthrate, putting an end to reports of an Arab demographic threat in the united capital. The birthrate in the expected life of mothers is 4.2 children for Jewish mothers compared with 3.9 children for Arab mothers, according to the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies (JIIS). Reflecting the trend in the rest of Israel, the birthrate for Jews represents a dramatic reversal and is on the increase while the Arab birthrate is declining.

    Latest Real Clear Politics rankings, which seem to be shifting red in recent days: WA-9 (Smith v Muri) and WA-2 (Larsen v Koster) are toss-up, WA-8 (Reichert v DelBene) and WA-3 (Heck v Herrera) leaning GOP. Reichert has always had close races, but in the other districts Larsen, Smith and Baird won their last three elections (if not more) with over 60% of the vote. RCP considers WA's remaining seats to be safe for the incumbents.

    Who would've thought the horror movie series I love would go political on me. I'm not going to spoil the movie, so I'll just tell you the political message of it. So the movie opens up and we see 2 people who are in cells and they're across from 1 another, Jigsaw comes on and he starts his speech, he says that they're PREDATORY LENDORS who take advantage of people who would never be able to pay back their loans. I turn my head to the right and whisper to hubby "did he just say predatory lenders" hubby smirks and...
