Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Well, in this case the city.

According to The New York Post, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development wants to make the value of a Section 8 voucher depend on the housing prices in the specific neighborhood in which it is used, rather than on the housing prices in the metropolitan area in which it is used. The idea is to spread the poor into the middle class and upper middle class neighborhoods, the safer neighborhoods, rather than having them all in “the ‘hood.”

As the article points out, HUD tried this is Dallas and Dubuque with dismal results. The criminals just took the crime with them to the suburbs:

A 2011 study sponsored by HUD found that adults using more generous Section 8 vouchers did not get better jobs or get off welfare. In fact, more went on food stamps. And their children did not do better in their new schools.

Worse, crime simply followed them to their safer neighborhoods, ruining the quality of life for existing residents.

“Males … were arrested more often than those in the control group, primarily for property crimes,” the study found.

Dubuque, Iowa, for example, received an influx of voucher holders from projects in Chicago — and it’s had a problem with crime ever since. A recent study linked Dubuque’s crime wave directly to Section 8 housing.

No surprise. You can take the hoodlum out of the ‘hood, but you cannot take the ‘hood out of the hoodlum.

Where there is more to steal, the hoodlums are more likely to steal. Where there are fewer hoodlums likely to steal, the cops have an easier time rounding up “the usual suspects.”

They did not become smarter or better educated just by moving to the ‘burbs. Even if they had, they would still be competing against better-qualified people for the jobs in the area. So they are less likely to get jobs than if they were in the inner cities, and more likely to turn to crime, being in a target-rich environment.

Once again, another prog policy is shown to be destructive to Blacks, so the progs want more of it, to do more harm to Blacks, to keep them dependent on the government handouts.

Brilliant.

Is Donald Trump the perfect candidate? No. But he is the best option we will have in November. If either Sec. Clinton or Sen. Sanders wins in November, they would appoint progs to the Supreme Court. Justice Ginsburg is 83, and will probably retire within the next few years. Justice Kennedy is 79, and Justice Breyer is 77. The next president may have the opportunity to appoint four Supremes.

We cannot allow a President Clinton or a President Sanders to make those appointments.

Which is why Gov. McAwful issued an executive order allowing ex-cons to vote. He knows that ex-cons will vote for demonrats because ex-cons have a history of making bad decisions.

That Gov. McAwful has not fulfilled his constitutional obligations in this matter does not matter to progs — laws and constitutions never matter to progs. That’s why criminals are progs.

Let’s look at thelaw as it pertains to the normal way voting rights are restored:

§ 53.1-231.2. Restoration of the civil right to be eligible to register to vote to certain persons.
Bills amending this Section
This section shall apply to any person who is not a qualified voter because of a felony conviction, who seeks to have his right to register to vote restored and become eligible to register to vote, and who meets the conditions and requirements set out in this section.

Any person, other than a person (i) convicted of a violent felony as defined in § 19.2-297.1 or in subsection C of § 17.1-805 and any crime ancillary thereto, (ii) convicted of a felony pursuant to §§ 18.2-248, 18.2-248.01, 18.2-248.1, 18.2-255, 18.2-255.2 or § 18.2-258.02, or (iii) convicted of a felony pursuant to § 24.2-1016, may petition the circuit court of the county or city in which he was convicted of a felony, or the circuit court of the county or city in which he presently resides, for restoration of his civil right to be eligible to register to vote through the process set out in this section. On such petition, the court may approve the petition for restoration to the person of his right if the court is satisfied from the evidence presented that the petitioner has completed, five or more years previously, service of any sentence and any modification of sentence including probation, parole, and suspension of sentence; that the petitioner has demonstrated civic responsibility through community or comparable service; and that the petitioner has been free from criminal convictions, excluding traffic infractions, for the same period.

If the court approves the petition, it shall so state in an order, provide a copy of the order to the petitioner, and transmit its order to the Secretary of the Commonwealth. The order shall state that the petitioner’s right to be eligible to register to vote may be restored by the date that is 90 days after the date of the order, subject to the approval or denial of restoration of that right by the Governor. The Secretary of the Commonwealth shall transmit the order to the Governor who may grant or deny the petition for restoration of the right to be eligible to register to vote approved by the court order. The Secretary of the Commonwealth shall send, within 90 days of the date of the order, to the petitioner at the address stated on the court’s order, a certificate of restoration of that right or notice that the Governor has denied the restoration of that right. The Governor’s denial of a petition for the restoration of voting rights shall be a final decision and the petitioner shall have no right of appeal. The Secretary shall notify the court and the State Board of Elections in each case of the restoration of the right or denial of restoration by the Governor.

On receipt of the certificate of restoration of the right to register to vote from the Secretary of the Commonwealth, the petitioner, who is otherwise a qualified voter, shall become eligible to register to vote.

This is the normal process, which the governor is circumventing.

The governor is relying on Article V, Section 12, of the Virginia Constitution:

Article V. Executive
Section 12. Executive clemency
The Governor shall have power to remit fines and penalties under such rules and regulations as may be prescribed by law; to grant reprieves and pardons after conviction except when the prosecution has been carried on by the House of Delegates; to remove political disabilities consequent upon conviction for offenses committed prior or subsequent to the adoption of this Constitution; and to commute capital punishment.

He shall communicate to the General Assembly, at each regular session, particulars of every case of fine or penalty remitted, of reprieve or pardon granted, and of punishment commuted, with his reasons for remitting, granting, or commuting the same.

I look forward to hearing the governor explain the particulars of each of those 200,000 cases.

It is well known that progs are more impulsive:

Evidence suggests that these personality differences between liberals and conservatives begin to emerge at an early age. A 20-year longitudinal study by Jack and Jeanne Block showed that those who grew up to be liberals were originally assessed by their preschool teachers as more emotionally expressive, gregarious, and impulsive when compared to those who became conservatives, who were considered more inhibited, uncertain, and controlled. Liberals may show greater tolerance for diversity and creativity, but they may also be more impulsive, indecisive, and irresponsible. On the flip side, conservatives may be organized, stable, and thrifty, but also have stronger just-world beliefs (leading to a greater tolerance for inequality), and stronger fears of mortality and ambiguity. Even recent neuroscience work published in Current Biology from University College London identifies fundamental differences in the partisan brain. Brain scans revealed a larger amygdala in self-identified conservatives and a larger anterior cingulate cortex in liberals, leading the researchers to conclude that conservatives may be more acute at detecting threats around them, whereas liberals may be more adept at handling conflicting information and uncertainty.

The amygdala is “[shown] in research to perform a primary role in the processing of memory, decision-making, and emotional reactions, the amygdalae are considered part of the limbic system.”

But recent research has “found that study participants who reported seeking high levels of stimulation or excitement or a tendency to act on impulse had reduced cortical thickness in brain regions associated with decision making and self-control, particularly in the anterior cingulate and the middle frontal gyrus.”

So despite having larger anterior cingulate cortices, the reduced cortical thickness reduced the functionality of those regions.

Science is proving the truth of Dr. Savage’s aphorism: “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder”

Dr. Savage’s comment on liberalism has scientific backing now:

Mind control: Scientists can now make people alter their prejudices and belief in God

When the researchers disabled one part of the brain which is used for complex problem-solving, the subjects became more liberal. Fortunately, this effect was temporary, and the subjects recovered their senses. The damage to James Brady’s frontal lobe, unfortunately, was permanent, and resulted in his being a liberal the rest of his life.

What is The Most Important Job in Society? Motherhood.

Liberalism, particularly feminism, with its misguided focus on some faux “equality” between men and women (they change the definition of equal to mean “the same”) has dehumanized the human fetus and devalued motherhood. I guess in their twisted weltanschauung, if a man can’t do it, it’s not worth doing. How sexist is that!?

But there it is — only women can bear children. As “liberalism” and “feminism” (liberalism is not about liberty, but subservience to the government, and feminism is not about the wonder that is femininity, but about how to make women more like men) devalue motherhood, and try to make women more like men, our birth rates are dropping precipitously. Liberalism and feminism are killing western civilization.

There is nothing more important to a civilization than the next generation, and nothing more important to the creation of the next generation, and to civilizing it, than mothers. One man can father hundreds of children, but women, not so many.

So why do liberalism and it’s evil offspring, feminism, devalue motherhood? Why do they devalue that which makes women more valuable than men to civilization? Can it be to destroy Western Civilization?

According to Black Lives Matter co-founder Marissa Jenae Johnson, the answer is

What it’s gonna take to dismantle white supremacy is white folks actually gotta give up something. You have to actually sacrifice yourself. You have to be willing to give up the things that you currently benefit from.

I benefit from having an education. Should I give that up? Should I not send my kids to school to bring them down to your level?

I benefit from not committing crimes? Should I commit crimes to bring myself down to your level?

I benefit from having had married parents. My children benefit from having married parents. Should I divorce my wife to bring my kids down to your level?

How about this, instead of trying to bring Whites down to your level, how about trying to bring Blacks up to ours?

Where is “Asian Lives Matter”? Where is “Jewish Lives Matter”? Where is “Irish Lives Matter”? (And if you don’t think they had problems with discrimination, remember this?)

Why do they not have the same problems Blacks do? Culture.

Black violent crime is about eight times the White rate. Blacks have children out-of-wedlock (bastards) at more than twice the rate Whites do, and at more than four times the rate Asians do. Blacks are more likely than Whites to default on a mortgage, at all income levels.

If there is such a thing as “White Privilege”, it is because Whites earned it. They earned it by working hard, getting an education, getting married before they had children, being law-abiding citizens, and by paying their debts.

Instead of trying to bring Whites (and Asians and Jews) down, try bringing yourselves up.
