First, would the term “shithole” be a vulgar, but not entirely inaccurate, adjective to describe, say, Aleppo Syria? Or Pyongyang? Or Detroit?

Trump recently caught flack (so what else is new?) when he moved to end “Temporary Protected Status” for 250,000 Salvadorans living in the US for the past 15 years:

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.co ... index.html

And why did those Salvadorans receive that status 15 years ago? According to that article, TPS is authorized for “nationals of countries who have “suffered a disaster such as war, an epidemic, or natural disaster.” In other words, we have laws on the books which are there PRECISELY because of the existence of...

.... wait for it....

... wait for it....

....wait for it....

... countries turned into shitholes by war, epidemic, or natural disaster. They do exist. Trump was just excessively blunt about it.

"Why do we get all of these people from [non-white] shithole countries.."

.....wait for it......

.."why can't we get them from [white countries like] Norway?"

Context is key.

Everything is about identity politics with you guys, isn't it?

In the 1840's, the potato famine vaulted lilly-white Ireland to prominence in the shithole country (SHC) category. Northern Ireland did an encore as a SHC-province bracket in the 1970's.
After WWII, milky-white Germany was a full-blown SHC. (Japan was too, but they are yellow, not black or brown. Where do Asians fit into the identity politics-victmization-reparations sweepstakes, anyway?)
Fair complected Russia, and all their blonde Slavic cousins in Eastern Europe, were all thoroughbred SHC’s between 1917 and the the mid-1980's.
Alabaster Bosnia became such a SHC that Bill Clinton tried to bomb them out of their SHC-ery back in the '80's.

I doubt Trump would have wanted anybody from those countries during their heydays as SHC’s either. If Norway turns into a SHC, Trump won't want to let them in either.

Not everything in the world is about race.

PS: Along with the afforementioned Asians, where do Arab countries fit into the identity politics-victimization-reparations algorithm WRT SHC designation?

"Not everything in the world is about race."

Indeed, according to you, at least, absolutely nothing in the world is about race...

I wouldn't say "absolutely nothing." I would say something along the lines of, "Not NEARLY as much as Leftists imagine."

In other news, a government official in Hawaii accidentally hits the wrong button, and an emergency alert goes out to Hawaii warning of incoming missiles. But no doubt speaking for many, Jamie Lee Curtis blames Trump:

Someday, when they build the Trump Derangement Syndrome Museum, this may be the featured exhibit:

Trump is living rent-free in the heads of millions of Leftists. Outstanding.

Page – Yep. Out to lunch with (redacted) We both hate everyone and everything.

Page – Just riffing on the hot mess that is our country.

Strzok – Yeah…it’s scary real down here

Neither Strzok or Page (?) is the defacto Leader of the Free World. That I even have to point that out is troubling.

This is for Owlman in particular, but all the Obamaites/gobblers can enjoy the crow pie too. Owlman's fav was "we can't affect (drive down) the price of oil w/more drilling"....of course he was parroting the msm/establishment position...


HOUSTON (Reuters) - Surging shale production is poised to push U.S. oil output to more than 10 million barrels per day - toppling a record set in 1970 and crossing a threshold few could have imagined even a decade ago.

And this new record, expected within days, likely won’t last long. The U.S. government forecasts that the nation’s production will climb to 11 million barrels a day by late 2019, a level that would rival Russia, the world’s top producer.

The economic and political impacts of soaring U.S. output are breathtaking, cutting the nation’s oil imports by a fifth over a decade, providing high-paying jobs in rural communities and lowering consumer prices for domestic gasoline by 37 percent from a 2008 peak.

“It has had incredibly positive impacts for the U.S. economy, for the workforce and even our reduced carbon footprint” as shale natural gas has displaced coal at power plants, said John England, head of consultancy Deloitte’s U.S. energy and resources practice.

U.S. energy exports now compete with Middle East oil for buyers in Asia. Daily trading volumes of U.S. oil futures contracts have more doubled in the past decade, averaging more than 1.2 billion barrels per day in 2017, according to exchange operator CME Group.

..The cartel of oil-producing nations backed down in November 2016 and enacted production cuts amid pressure from their own members over low prices - which had plunged to below $27 earlier that year from more than $100 a barrel in 2014.

Efficiencies spurred by the battle with OPEC - including faster drilling, better well designs and more fracking - helped U.S. firms produce enough oil to successfully lobby for the repeal of a ban on oil exports. In late 2015, Congress overturned the prohibition it had imposed following OPEC’s 1973 embargo.

The United States now exports up to 1.7 million barrels per day of crude, and this year will have the capacity to export 3.8 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas. Terminals conceived for importing liquefied natural gas have now been overhauled to allow exports.

The shale revolution initially upended the traditional industry hierarchy, making billionaires out of wildcatters such as Harold Hamm, who founded Continental Resources, and the late Aubrey McClendon of Chesapeake Energy.

Top U.S. oil firms such as Exxon Mobil and Chevron a decade ago turned much of their focus to foreign fields, leaving smaller firms to develop U.S. shale. Now they’re back, buying shale companies, land and shifting more investments back home from overseas.

Exxon last year agreed to pay up to $6.6 billion for land in the Permian basin, the epicenter of U.S. shale. Chevron this year plans to spend $4.3 billion on shale development.
