Sergio Arellano of Phoenix, Ariz., said he had a story he liked to tell about the moment he registered as a Republican. When he was an 18-year-old Army infantryman on home leave, he went to a July 4 event and spotted the voter registration table. He asked the woman sitting there: What’s the difference between Republicans and Democrats?

Democrats, he recalled her saying, are for the poor. Republicans are for the rich.

“Well that made it easy — I didn’t want to be poor, I wanted to be rich, so I chose Republican,” Mr. Arellano said. “Obviously she figured I would identify with the poor. There’s an assumption that you’re starting out in this country, you don’t have any money, you will identify with the poor. But what I wanted was to make my own money.”

From a nice piece in today's NYTimes: A Vexing Question for Democrats: What Drives Latino Men to Republicans?

Biden wants an eight-year path to citizenship for the 11-25 million undocumented immigrants currently in the US (nobody really has a clue as to the number). In any event, Republicans should say: "throw in some more border security and WE ACCEPT!"   :D

Why not pack the Supreme Court? Justice Breyer explains in a fascinating lecture.

In the mean time, the red dragon drinks from two rivers: https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/3/2 ... -in-tehran
The predictable outcome of American sanction politics. Add to that Russian with their maskirovka talents, and brace yourselves for another cold war.
