We are not a nation of immigrants. Not today.

The GOP has won the battle to demonize immigrants.  Immigrants have been made to look like savages thanks to the GOP.

The GOP has taken advantage of a broken immigration system to create a climate of hate against our fellow human beings. The GOP has led the way in breaking the system.

America has sunk to an all-time low on immigration. Thank you, GOP.


Former CNN host Brian Stelter tweeted this yesterday:

Just in: CNN’s town hall with Donald Trump averaged 3.1 million total viewers. The event outrated Fox and MSNBC, as expected, but these are not 2015/16 level numbers for Trump — not even close.


The NFL released their schedule yesterday and the Texans are not scheduled for a prime-time appearance this season.  The Texans are not alone. The Cardinals, Colts, and Falcons also are not on prime time. Oh, well.


Former Astro Kevin Bass is 64 today. Happy Birthday, Kevin!

This is a great move by the Astros. See this from the Chron:

AT&T SportsNet will televise 15 Astros games in Spanish, including the next six Sunday afternoon home games beginning with the May 21 matchup against the Oakland A’s at Minute Maid Park. The Los Astros Spanish broadcasts will air on AT&T SportsNet’s alternate channel, while the English-language broadcast will remain on AT&T SportsNet.

In addition to the Sunday home games and a Saturday meeting with the Mariners in August, the entire series against the Orioles and Royals during Hispanic Heritage Month at the end of September also will be broadcast in Spanish.

The Spanish broadcast team will be led by Enrique Vasquez, Danny Gonzales and Gene Flores. Vasquez has worked in sports broadcasting for 31 years, including on the Astros’ Spanish radio broadcasts, as well as a producer on “Contacto con los Astros,” the first Spanish language program on Fox Sports Southwest when it aired from 2006 to 2008. Gonzales worked as the team’s Spanish play-by-play radio man during select games in 2007. Flores is in his 13th season as head coach at Clear Brook High School. Before that, he starred at the University of Houston and pitched a year in the minors for the Boston Red Sox organization.

“We recognize the unwavering loyalty and passion of the team’s Spanish-speaking fans and are proud to provide them with a way to experience the thrill of Astros baseball and celebrate the rich diversity of our community,” AT&T SportsNet general manager David Peart said.
