I can't believe 25% of voters are evangelicals. That is disturbing.

They’re very into voting. I’d guess more than 50% of Evangelicals vote in every election.

More than 50%? They let their woman vote?

Women if Mormon splinter polygamists count as evangelicals.

Re: We are all Slave now.

Growing up we hardly had cereal to eat. But my grandma was here without papers so that might explain it?

I assumed my great-grandfather had papers, but maybe not. How would they get into the country on a boat from Europe without papers?

I expect graft, but people also jumped off boats.

DYK how your grand-mother arrived? My grandfather came on a ship from Hamburg, and got to St Louis. I assumed he said up the Mississippi, but maybe he got off the ship in New York and took a train.

I'm fine with women in power, but not these women.

NYC not sure how she got in though. There is an intense play about Itie immigrants in the 50s sneaking in. My g-pa was here with papers so he might have. Greased some wheels.

Re: We are all Slave now.

I always assumed my ancestors didn't really need any "papers" back in the 19th century and before, although somewhere we have my great-great-grandpa's discharge papers from the Prussian army.

There weren’t probably, especially for a German. My gpa got to NYC in 1922. The knucklehead dumped his Iris citizenship* and became US immediately. He sent for my gma in 1928. Problem: in 1924 Congress passed a law essentially stopping all Italian immigration. I don’t know she was w/o papers, but she was dirt poor and most people that did get in were w/o.

*I know because if he was still an Italian when my mommy was born I could get Itie dual citizenship and an EC passport. My mom remembered helping her mom study for the citizenship test test so I was hopeful gap might have waited a bit, but he didn’t. And the country is so patriarchial that my Gmail doesn’t matter.

Sometimes I'm not really sure I understand the kids these days, but I believe there is a thing where people use the Photoshop or its functional equivalents to change the words on images of stuff, and I believe that the green background of those Grinchy billboards make an ideal canvas for that sort of artwork.
