Houston+Minneapolis demographics, 1980+2010.
This is a condensed version of yesterday’s post by me, “What would Houston look like today without illegal immigration”.

What Houston might look like today without illegal immigration.

Another reason that Obamacare may lose, the 2010 SOTU speech.
Just a little review for those who may have forgotten, but in the 2010 SOTU speech, Obama called out the supreme court during the speech for a decision that “reversed a century of law to open the floodgates – including foreign corporations – to spend without limit in our elections.” Now, the counter or courts argument for being right, from here: http://blog.heritage.org/2010/01/28/the-truth-about-president-obama-and-citizens-united/ was that, “Court overturned | Read More »
