Hello Bob,

RB>>> You make one assumption here that I consider unjustified.

LL>> Prior to the days of the FDR administration, there were no government
LL>> handouts. Yet immigrants came, and continued to come.

RB> OK, Lee, I meanwhile understand your political leanings.

My political leanings are not blue or red, but rather a mix
of purple, green, and gold. With a touch of red (but only at
times).

RB> Now you can stop preaching and just try to write objectively instead of
RB> emotionally.

I am not sure that any journalist or reporter can write objectively
about anything, as everyone has his/her own prejudices. What can be
done is support and substantiate opinions expressed.

Prior to the days of FDR, the federal government had little revenue.
Can't give away free stuff without having the stuff to give away.

RB> I'm neither pro nor anti Trump,

There are no fence-sitters when it comes to Trump.
Either you love him, or you don't.
So which is it?

RB> although some people attempt to put me in one or the other group.

I'm trying. I'm trying really hard ...

RB> But I _do_prefer objective facts to emotional rants,

So I take it you are *not* a fan of Donald Trump.

RB> and those are unfortunately common among Americans nowadays.

Oh, his legion of fans love him most when he goes on one of
his trademarked emotional rants ...

RB> I've never before personally seen such a rift between attitudes in the
RB> States, and sometimes feel like I were living in 1860, with Abraham
Lincoln
RB> as the presidential candidate.

I love it. What we have is a modern-day Huey P. Long.
People just can't get enough of him. They will drive for
miles on end to see him give a performance. And those
places are packed. I never would have believed my own
eyes had I not seen it myself. Donald J. Trump, candidate
for president, speaking to a massive crowd inside the
River Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Around here people worship him. They adore him. They think
he is god almighty and can do no wrong. The only thing better
would have been Ignatius J. Reilly, a fictional character in
"A Confederacy of Dunces".

RB> It's not a pleasant feeling.

The taunts. The insults. Don Rickles on steroids.
What is there not to like?
