Is it Racist?

If you're a disabled veteran in line for public housing assistance, you could be standing behind 1000 illegal aliens the way things are today. But not tomorrow. (MAGA)

Dr. Ben Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, issued an order, resulting in a new rule that will stop illegal immigrants from scamming regulations currently in place, to stop them from accessing housing subsidies. 
(Washington Examiner) “We need to make certain our scarce public resources help those who are legally entitled to it,” department Secretary Ben Carson said in a statement. “Given the overwhelming demand for our programs, fairness requires that we devote ourselves to legal residents who have been waiting, some for many years, for access to affordable housing.” 
The new rule will disallow illegal immigrants from living in houses that receive subsidies from the department regardless of whether they were the direct recipient or not. Previously, rules allowed illegal immigrants to benefit from subsides by living with relatives who were citizens. 

I expect that a liberal judge -- likely from San Francisco or Hawaii -- will enjoin that decision and it will have to be pushed up to an appellate court or even SCOTUS. The concept of "America for Americans" bothers the progressive among us.

Political Rambling

Run Joe, Run

Anyone who has to deal with government needs to deal with both sides of the aisle. The defense contractors (Beltway Bandits) have it down to an art. Here's a photo of one of my business partners with Sleepy Joe Biden.

Our fellow blogger, Fredd, predicts that Slow Joe will end up being the Democrat nominee because he's the least radical of the bunch. Fredd may be right because the hysteria among progs has become deafening. Every single day they double down on stupid with another bout of insane crap, trying to demonstrate HOW left they can go.

Common Sense and Student Loans

The message should be, "don't take out a loan that you can't afford." I knew a guy in grad school who lived on student loans for seven or eight years, limping along, taking the minimum number of classes. It was his 'income'. Today he lives in China and hasn't attempted to pay a dime back. The thought that we should all band together (including people who paid off their student loans) to cover people who foolishly took out more student debt than their liberal arts degree would ever be able earn them (makin' bacon at the Waffle House)  makes sense only to people who want a free ride...and political parasites who want a vote.
