One of the least fair housing policies is the mandatory policy requiring developers to set aside a portion of units in a new housing development for 'low income' households. In practical terms, this means that individuals who achieve must subsidize, through higher prices, those who are moochers and are not even paying the cost of constructing such a unit. Even liberals don't like this (at least, when they have to live with the results). After reading many Yelp reviews of luxury apartments, many tenants are shocked that people with very low income are living in the same building as them. Even people who reflexively vote Democrat can feel that there is a sense of injustice that they may have graduated from college, perhaps graduate or professional school, and they end up in the same place as some loser who dropped out of high school, used drugs, etc, etc. When it comes to hotels, we let the free-market prevail. We don't assume that someone who dropped out of high school will be staying at the Ritz Carlton. But in cities like LA, there is an assumption that when it comes to long-term housing, the free-market cannot be trusted.
Here is the politically incorrect viewpoint of the day: Some Hawaiians (mostly activist nuts) are upset with the United States for overturning the monarchy and later turning Hawaii into a territory, and later, a state. Even the U.S. Congress and former President Bill Clinton actually apologized to the Hawaiians for doing so. However, this was unnecessary. Eventually, SOME country would have conquered Hawaii one way or another because it simply lacked the ability to defend itself militarily (what are they going to defend themselves with--coconuts?). Would the Hawaiians have been happier with China or Japan running their island? I doubt it. Hawaiians should be happy that they are a state and have the protections and political and economic stability that comes from being a U.S. state. They have the ability to elect the nutjobs who run the island very badly and they have representation in the U.S. Congress. To the extent that things aren't perfect in the Aloha state, maybe they should question the one-party state instead. ;0

If Democrats want to win elected office once again, shouldn't they adopt policies that people actually care about? Most people are interested in good paying jobs and they are not fixated on the latest "outrage" -- such as the misguided view that a boy can become a girl just because they feel that way. Our own personal view is that if a man thinks he is a woman, it is literally a mental disorder. It is similar to if a man thought he is a dog. There are certain properties to things that exist in this world. You cannot just say A is B. It is not.

Donald Trump picks Betty DeVos for Secretary of Education. Shouldn't Republicans be talking about eliminating this unnecessary department rather than funding it? Government-run education does not work! Why are we doing this?
Democrats never respect election results--unless they win the election. As Mark Levin pointedly said, Democrats have a "totalitarian mindset." What this means is that Democrats believe that regardless of election results, their political prescriptions should still be implemented into law. Democrats seem to sometimes think that they are Vladmir Putin and do not have to worry about elections. No matter who wins, they demand that their backward, regressive policies be enacted into law. Americans do not care about your fetish for Paris-climate agreement and other global warming/climate change laws. Democrats, you lost the election. Your policies will be reversed.

A lot of Americans gave up looking for work during the Obama era because there really wasn't any work to be had. Economic growth was minimal. Few people received raises, but there was plenty of inflation that had existed during this time period. Even many liberals noticed that things were not going well but they refused to acknowledge the reason why things have not been going well. Long-term, I can't imagine voters continuing to re-elect a party, the Democrats, that really was quite comfortable with a declining, poorer, America. The people tend to get things right if they have enough time to correct for their prior mistakes. Cheers to the power of voters!

What should Donald Trump do as president? We believe that quickly reversing the statist vision of the federal government and moving towards freedom and liberty for millions of Americans is the absolute best course of action. To do so, repealing Obamacare and significantly lowering corporate income tax rates needs to be on the top of the list of things that should be done in the first 100 days in office. I would be interested in hearing what you think Donald Trump should do as president.

Unlike the leftist mobs who are protesting around the country, we happen to believe America is truly a special place that has secured individual rights for its citizens. We do not understand the mob mentality that has resulted in cry baby snowflakes protesting an election that has taken place and is now final. Also, why would someone protest with Mexican flags!? This isn't Mexico!

The stupidity of the public never ceases to amaze me. I actually saw someone buy a full-priced version of Dianetics at the Scientology counter at the Glendale Galleria. This Scientology cultists probably charged the customer $40 for this book! Even if you really want to buy this book, you don't have to buy it from Scientology. It is available on Amazon.com for a penny ($3.99 shipping charge!) A sucker is born every minute!

My own experience with multiculturalists is that they usually don't know a lot about most parts of the world. They usually respond with a great degree of irrational contempt at any indication that there are cultural differences, and that some places are just blame wastelands because the cultures in those areas are bankrupt. I suppose multiculturalism appeals to the ill informed because it is much easier, from a distance, without reading about different cultures, to just say that they are all equal and be done with the issue. However, even the most ardent multiculturalist will not suggest taking a vacation in Kabul, Somalia, Benghazi, or the Sudan. (Yet, at the same time, they want to bring people from those areas here, because once they are on American soil, things will be fine somehow!) The multiculturalists are also not able to explain why most cars are from the United States, Japan, Germany, or South Korea. (If all countries were equal, wouldn't cars be made in every part of the world?) The best cameras are also made in Germany and Japan. Multiculturalism is an attempt to escape from reality by giving us a fictional account of life in the world.
Governor Brown signed a bunch of laws that restrict law-abiding Americans from owning certain types of guns. But he did veto one gun-related law. He vetoed a law that would have made the theft of any gun a felony (right now it can be a misdemeanor if the gun is worth less than $750!) Democrats are the party of criminals! No wonder they support restoring the voting rights of felons.
