    The 1994 crime bill was targeted at locking up what Hillary referred to as "super predators" for even minor drug charges. Its victims were disproportionately young African-American males who were taken away from their families and thrown in prisons, many for non-violent crimes. The bill exasperated the damage done to the family unit in inner city areas from previous decades of progressive policies. It finished off the job the radical left's "War on Poverty" started in the 1960s when they started incentivizing women to not marry in poor inner-city areas. The effect was that the unemployment rate among African-Americans skyrocketed from 25% to 77% from 1965 to 2015. In 50 years, the Democrats had re-enslaved African-Americans by making them dependent on the federal government.

    Along comes Donald Trump and enacts prison reform, freeing massive numbers of African-American males from prison so they can get jobs and return to their families. Understandably, this enrages the Democrats as it reduces dependence on the government in inner city areas. They haven't been this mad since Abraham Lincoln freed their slaves. They are trying everything they can think of to try and impeach Trump.

    The number of African-American males employed in the country broke another record this month. Five more years of this and things could get very bad for the Democrats.

    "The economy added 266,000 jobs in the month, far more than expected. Black men over 20 picked up 14,000 of those jobs, according to Labor Department data released Friday. That matched in increase in the civilian labor force for that cohort."

    That's a laughable historic reference.

    Is this the same Trump who demanded (and still does) the death penalty for five black minors who were forced to give false confessions?

    Get a life for God's sake. Trump joked about his similarity with Lincoln. It's like the silly comparison with JFK and Lincoln but not as serious (Lincoln had a secretary named Kennedy and JFK had a secretary named Lincoln). Let's hope the crazies on the left don't act on the biggest similarity between JFK and Lincoln.

    I was thinking more Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan myself.
