Trump attacking soybean farmers was bad enough. Now he’s attacking corn farmers.

    It helped Lewiston economically; there is no question about that. 7,500 Somali's ended up settling there, and that's a lot of customers for the businesses in town. Lewiston, like a lot of Maine towns, was losing population. Now it's holding its own.

    You will like this article because it tells BOTH sides of that story, honestly.
    How A Maine Community Changed By Refugees Came To Embrace Trump

    The complaints are pretty much the same as folks have against all immigrants--now that they've got some English and some education, they're competing for the jobs (make up your mind folks--stealing jobs or lazy welfare mooches--which is it?) and changing the face of the schools. Some like that. Some don't.

    Brett Kavanaugh, who he assumed and still likely believes is guilty of something that didn’t happen and if it did still wasn’t remotely rape or assault.

    Lewiston Maine was a mill town, many that live there now are there for the benefits it offers like welfare, food stamps, THAT TOWN IS STRUGGLING..
    most Somalians are Muslim and DO NOT ASSIMILATE. They have taken over a park, attacking 10 year old girls. Gang of Somali Kids Attack Park Goers in Lewiston - Maine First Media
    They killed a white man, and many have protested the Muslims.
    You won’t find many articles talking about the struggle of living with these people because they would be called racist, so many just pray trump helps them.

    So you won’t answer my question, how does it help the community to add more poor people to it, what’s the number of non English speaking kids to be added to a struggling school system? A few business are open by them but the majority are on welfare, That’s the question that needs to be answered about today’s immigration. HOW MANY CAN POOR TOWNS CONTINUE TO TAKE.



    Maine: Lewiston-Auburn
    • (5-year change in crime rate: +7.5 percent) (metro area) -1.4 percent (state)
    • 2017 violent crimes per 100,000 people: 157 (metro area) 121 (state)
    • 2017 murders: 0 (metro area) 23 (state)
    • 2017 unemployment: 3.1 percent (metro area) 3.3 percent (state)

    In Lewiston-Auburn, the most dangerous metro area in Maine, the violent crime rate of 157 per 100,000 is less than half the 383 per 100,000 national rate. Lewiston-Auburn was also the only metro area in the state to report an increase in violence in the last five years. The metro area's crime rate rose by 7.5 percent, driven by climbing rates of rape and aggravated assault.

    Across Maine, there were just 23 homicides in 2017, less than a quarter of the total number of murders in every U.S. metro area considered with a similar population size to Maine. With a violent crime rate of just 121 incidents per 100,000 people, Maine is the safest state in the country.

    Hilarious! This from your article:

    In 2018, farm debt-to-income was at the highest level since 1984, in the midst of the farm crisis. To ease the blow, the Trump administration had pledged about $28 billion in aid.

    $28 billion in free money? And the reason they will vote for Trump is because they don’t like free stuff?

    That’s nuts.

    It’s one thing for Trump to spew out this nonsense and another thing for him to stand and have to defend his bullshit on a debate stage.
    And I don’t know any Democrat who’s calling for free everything. Even Elizabeth Warren says everybody should go to college and she put out a plan on how to pay for it.

    And what happens when somebody stands up there and says yeah trumps willing to throw out billions over here and billions over there to buy votes. But what happens once he gets elected? Do you think he’s still going to give these people more money? No way, he’s going to say fuck you, you elected me now it’s my turn.

    And what do you think small farms are going to think when they see big barns getting all that money? It reminds you of the tax cuts doesn’t it?

    U.S. dairy-export volume decreases

    Dairy farm exports is down 14%.

    Is there any part of the economy that Trump hasn’t trashed?

    If this is winning, I’m terrified of what losing is. Terrified for this country.

    Widening Disparities In Infant Mortality And Life Expectancy Between Appalachia And The Rest Of The United States

    Someone on this site said Republicans were pro birth but not pro life. You can tell they’re not pro life because life expectancy is falling in Appalachia the heart of the Republican Party. And infant mortality is rising. They just want to get the babies born, but do they really care whether or not they live. And they don’t care about quality of life. In fact Republicans might even be happier if they suffer a little bit before they die. I don’t know it just seems that way. Don’t you agree?
