Because Democrat and RINO leaders have been so successful inviting citizens of foreign countries to come to America illegally, and because their success is ever-increasingly backfiring, they ever-increasingly deny their responsibility.

My critics/opponents ignore, dismiss, belittle, badmouth, demonize, denigrate, and/or condemn the fact that I worked for GAO as can Analyst for almost 18 years, that much of what GAO Analysts do is very similar to what journalists do, and that in today’s dollars, during my last 11 years at GAO, my salary increased from $109,732/year to $142,650/year.)

–FRONT PAGE TOP OF FOLD: As Democrats and RINOs ever-increasingly push more pot: What’s behind the surge in deadly crashes involving drugged drivers – Charles Keeshan and Susan Sarkauskas
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Illinois has a drugged driving problem, and it began well before the legalization of recreational marijuana in 2020. That’s among the key findings of a new analysis of the state’s crash statistics and a driver survey conducted by AAA — The Auto Club Group. According to the data, the number of drivers involved in fatal crashes who tested positive for drugs grew from 235 in 2013 to 418 in 2021, a 78% hike. The increase is even greater for cannabinoids such as marijuana — 96 to 203, a 111% leap — but there also have been more drivers testing positive for both prescription and illegal narcotics after deadly crashes. Experts attribute the increase to a number of causes, from easier access to recreational drugs to a lack of driver education about the effects of drugs on their abilities behind the wheel.)

DeSantis riffed on a number of issues during the visit, including “baseball, the Navy, meeting Casey [DeSantis’ wife] and flying 700 Floridians home from Israel” after the attack by Hamas. On the menu: pizza. – Shia Kapos (COMMENT: I only just now learned about this from Kapos’ newsletter.

Their parents had college degrees. Because they bought their children cars and paid for their college expenses, their children did not have to and did not work while they were in high school or college. And after they graduated, they got their children jobs. Because my parents were not rich, I had to and I did work while I was in high school and college to buy cars and pay for my college expenses. I should write a book about my critics/opponents and their charmed lives.)
