His bottom line? Quality over quantity.
Second, immigration contributes very little to making native-born Americans richer than they would otherwise be.
Third, the gains from immigration are divided very unequally. Immigrants reap most of them. Wealthy Americans claim much of the rest, in the form of the lower prices they pay for immigrant-produced services. Low-income Americans receive comparatively little benefit, and may well be made worse off, depending on who’s counting and what method they use.
Yet the true bottom line is this: Neither the fiscal costs nor the economic benefits of immigration are large enough to force a decision one way or the other. Accept the most negative estimate of immigration’s dollar costs, and the United States could still afford a lot of immigration. Believe the most positive reckoning of the dollar benefits that mass immigration provides, and they are not so large that the United States would be crazy to refuse them.

For good or ill, immigration’s most important effects are social and cultural, not economic. What are these effects, then? Some are good, some are bad, and some depend on the eye of the beholder.
Despite the pitch, He didn’t really address issues of social cohesion.

Curious though how that can happen, and why there wouldn't also be coolant in the oil - which was also on the low side.

But since I'm reluctant to buy more than a couple of green bananas at a time - "check-out time" coming up fast on the horizon - I'm certainly reluctant to shell out $10 to $20 K for new or recent model replacement. That and all the guys here - no gals talking about monster-truck rallies? - talking about their own tales of woe led to a bit of a nightmare last night on having to fork out serious cash. Apropos of which, seems many others get to dream of "weird make-out" sessions:

I see a lot of vehicle privilege here.
I gave up my car 3 years ago, with the idea that the wife and I would share her car. The problem is, she doesn’t share well, so I walk everywhere. Which is fine, since it burns off the donuts. It is tough to lug 30 lbs of groceries a mile though.

I do get the car on Friday mornings though, so I can go to Costco. And at least I qualify for senior rapid transit now. $1 a ride.

I’m greener than AOC. Yippee!

The faceted instrument lights are orgasmic to someone who grew up on the atrocities of BMC. Just like a Morris Minor or Riley 1.5.

On the other hand, my 2010 Ford Expedition is costing ~3k per year in major repairs, and if I'm here to do it I'll probably substitute a Subaru Crosstrek before its next safety check (like an MoT) in 2021. Half the price, 8.7" ground clearance (which is what makes AWD or 4WD any good in deep snow) and I get Apple Carplay, and still can have a manual gearbox, which I strongly prefer. It all depends on the nodes, which seem to be growing.
I had one of the very first MX-5s (==Miata) imported into the UK, at the time when there was an 18-month waiting list. I used to find notes under the wiper about once a week offering me UKL25-30K in cash for it (over twice the MSRP). It was the only car I ever owned that increased in value when I drove it off the lot. I loved driving that car, I used to have the biggest grin ever. Keep the revs between 3750 and 4750, and it was sweet as a not. Combined with the fabulous rorty note from the tailpipe, it was a real head turner, and had I been more attractive and single, probably a great knicker loosener too.

A 2010 Ford Expedition is fine.

So is a Toyota Corolla.

And a BMW 5 series.

Agree - the looks are a little angular, but after you've had it a few days, you don't look at the outside :-)

Our other car is a '92 Civic, which runs fine. In another three years we can designate it as a collector's vehicle, and pay no license fees!

My '88 Silverado one-ton, 454 four-on-the-floor, 97K mi, has so many non-engine issues (photo posted here not too long ago), I decided to get a replacement, and snagged this beauty on Thursday:

Need to de-pimp it by removing the tinting and swapping out the wigger wheels, but it's a '97 Ram 1/2 ton, 5.9L V8, only 155K mi, and I got it for a song. Should make a decent work truck.

I'm keeping the old beast as a ranch truck and now with, in various states of operational status, I've got two truck, two cars, two log splitters, three generators, and about seven chain saws, I'm well on my way to "Junkyard Jerry" status.

Phil Anselmo of Pantera has lost a couple gigs in New Zealand, due to Christchurch.

The first insane thing about this--is that Phil's friend & bandmate-- Dimebag Darrell-- died performing onstage, murdered by a crazed gunman in the audience. Shouldn't that earn Phil a few presumption-of-being-on-the-correct-side points?

The second insane thing-- is that Phil's current band-- 'The Illegals'-- appear to be from the Wrong Side of trump's wall, to be nazis.
https://www.kerrang.com/assets/images/5 ... 8c6c4a.jpg

The third thing-- is that Phil is actually guilty of racist thoughtcrimes. In 2014, at a tribute concert for Dimebag, Phil ended the night with a seig heil salute, shouting, 'White Power!'. He has blamed being drunk & high. And said it was a joke about being drunk on white wine. And said people in the front row were calling him a racist-- so he was responding to their bullshit with a big fuck-you. He has made public apologies & donations & sponsored a ghetto boxing gym in Detroit... but I don't think he can talk his way out of being a loudmouth lout, with wrongthink beliefs.

I saw Pantera with Type O Negative, around 1993, & I remember him ranting between songs-- that no one should 'look in the mirror' & ever feel 'ashamed'-- there's nothing wrong with being 'proud'-- of what you are-- including if you're proud of being 'white'. Ok fine. But-- it's awkward that he felt compelled to make that declaration-- out of the blue, apropos of nothing. Also-- his explanation of Pantera using the Confederate Flag on t-shirts & logos & shit... is pretty weak. He says they were just copying Lynyrd Skynyrd & didn't give it any thought. Howabout telling the truth-- that they DID give it thought & they thought it looked cool & outlaw & badass & southern-pride & tough? That they were willing to trigger NPCs who would accuse them of racism-- in exchange for the cool-points that come with looking uncompromising & rebellious.

The reason I'm bothering to type all-this... is what-else is Phil Anselmo supposed-to do? Just change his mind to hold the correct ideas? Feign agreeing with what he's Supposed To think? Shrivel up & die because he has become unemployable?

I don't think it's possible to ban, sanction, censure, de-platform Phil Anselmo-- for being a low-average-IQ guy who occasionally expresses his half-baked & wrong-headed thoughts... without creating a precedent which wipes out a majority of people from doing business freely. Phil's unfashionable bigotry isn't worse than Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or the Cambridge professors who rejected Jordan Peterson, or Trevor Noah, or the cunts on The View, or or or. Or me.

My 2005 Suzuki XL7 went to the great scrapyard in the sky a few months ago. The valve seals had gone and it was going to cost more to fix it than it was worth (bought new and totally depreciated, >300k kms on the clock). Now have a 2014 Subaru Outback while waiting for my Tesla 3 to come in later this year.

I was toying with the idea of getting another BMW but I am not going to. I still have painful memories of the what they charged for a normal service. Despite the fact that replacing the oxygen sensor on the 3 series actually cost less than one for the VW Rabbit. I loved my BMW but the costs were pretty excessive.

Still have not yet made up my mind what I am going to get next. I will probably get another Hyundai (because good value/money ratio).

I’m getting the feeling people are generally in favour of condemning murder. But not to a level disproportionate with the way Islamic terrorism is treated. And the condemnation should follow a similar expressive mode. Plus the condemnation probably shouldn’t appropriate symbolism which itself is divisive and antithetical to Western values. It’s bad enough it was done. But for the PM, Parliament, police and newsrooms to enthusiastically follow suite is kind of disturbing in itself.

It points to an underlying issue with society.
I am sure that it is actually a response to the perceived second order issue of Islamophobia and a belief in fair go, driven by empathy. I suspect that it will help dial down some surficial tensions in places like Turkey (where Turdogan has backed down on his initial rhetoric) and UAE (or Dubai?) where they plastered the image of a foreign female Prime Minister on a skyscraper. Soft power.
Soft power and appeasement tread uncomfortably close parallel paths. I hope NZ knows what it is doing.

It’s bad enough it was done. But for the PM, Parliament, police and newsrooms to enthusiastically follow suite is kind of disturbing in itself.

It points to an underlying issue with society.
I am sure that it is actually a response to the perceived second order issue of Islamophobia and a belief in fair go, driven by empathy. I suspect that it will help dial down some surficial tensions in places like Turkey (where Turdogan has backed down on his initial rhetoric) and UAE (or Dubai?) where they plastered the image of a foreign female Prime Minister on a skyscraper. Soft power.

‘Do you mind if I give you a hug?’ Waleed Aly interviews Jacinda Ardern

The Project host sat down with NZ PM Jacinda Ardern — and her response couldn’t be more different from Scott Morrison’s.

Katie's right. Fair is fair. I expect the next time there is an Islamist killing for Muslim women to shuck their hijabs and burkas and mix freely with men in a show of solidarity.

“... have quite the third party ideological / cultural resonance as the hijab 🧕 or potato sack.”

Might be a clearer expression.

Well done. I'm sure the killer is fucking ecstatic.
Does the number of white Muslim terrorists outnumber the number of white supremacist terrorists? I'm sure it does.

Considering the tiny numbers of white Muslims that would be an amazing testimony to the ability of Islam to generate terrorists compared to the ability of white supremacism to generate terrorists?

Sure, it might even come back in fashion, but you are unlikely to see many reverts from this.

I think your piss and vinegar is misdirected.

The idea that we are in anyway at “one” with Islam is a dangerous way to virtue signal. There is a values gulf that should be acknowledged and respected. Maybe a desert rose in the lapel would have worked?
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

I agree with a fuck-ton of what this guy says.

Not to tangentalize too much - but is there no one on the right ( alt / lite / or otherwise) that advocates for foreign intervention anymore?
Only to retake Constantinople and or Jerusalem. Other than that, you need the neo-cons and their neo-lib new-left allies for that shit.

Now look here Oz, I know we sent you our theiving scumbags 200 years ago but there was no need to start sending us fat cunts, take him back.
Yeah, he's annoyed all right. Bet your arse the thumb-headed cunt read that manifesto from top to bottom, fair horny for any mention of TR. This is just Mike trying to relieve some of the tension from having a serious case of blue balls.

Honestly, I can genuinely see him finishing that manifeso and going, 'Fuck, not even one mention of Tommy Robinson? Come on man!"
