All politics, all the time?

“It’s everywhere you turn these days. I can’t take it anymore.”
“Ah, yes, you speak of a regrettable fact of modern life — that politics is in our face everywhere we go, even in professional sports.”
“Professional sports always provided a respite from the worries of the real world. It was the one area where I could always escape the stress and strain of politics, which has gotten pretty ugly in recent years.”

The eye-popping cost of illegal immigration

Illegal immigration costs American taxpayers $116 billion annually, according to a new report published by the Washington, D.C.-based Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). Illegal aliens’ presence in the United States has long been debated. Advocates claim that many do jobs Americans won’t and that the services they perform grow the economy.

NFL Pigskins at the public trough

I’m calling foul on all the leftists rushing to protect the NFL’s protest crusaders from President Donald Trump’s criticism of their national anthem antics.
Their shabby line of defense? The NFL is a “private enterprise” whose “rights” are being violated by those who dare to challenge the league’s political radicalization. The anti-Trump Democratic Coalition has even filed an ethics complaint alleging that the president’s comments constitute a criminal violation against using government offices “to influence the employment decisions and practices” of a private entity.

Spending other people’s money

I can’t blame them, really. It’s human nature to want something for nothing.
I speak of two tenants who recently moved into a rental unit I own. I made the mistake of renting the unit for one flat rate that included “free” utilities.
Since the tenants didn’t have to pay directly for their electricity usage, they cranked the air conditioner day and night. There was no incentive for them to turn it off when they were at work during the day or away for the weekend.
