Question for the so-called "Dreamers"

EEE | 16 SEPTEMBER 2016 | EEE 

Has any children of illegal aliens ever took the initiative to become legal U.S. citizens?

Have they ever told themselves that "You know, I'm going to do whatever it takes to become a legal American citizen. I'm going to go return to my parent's country of origin, go to school, learn English, learn about America's system of government and laws and apply legally."
Have they ever reached out to immigration attorneys (many who do pro bono work thanks to contributions from various left-wing groups like La Raza and the Democrat Party) or to INS officials and inquired about the proper way to go about becoming legal U.S. citizens?
Have they ever asked their parents questions why they were born where they were born and why I, as a child of illegals, was born here in the U.S.?
Do Dreamers anticipate participating in civil society? Are they going to contribute, raise families, etc. or are they simply going to be pawns for Democrats and globalists interests who want to see the U.S. dissolved?
Why are elected officials so hell-bent on wanting illegals and children of illegals to come here and making them a priority?

She Doesn’t Understand How Bad She Was, And Still Won’t Go Away

WFB ^ | 16 Sep 2017 | Joseph Bottum 

Almost no commentator, no reviewer, has mentioned the most newsworthy fact about Hillary Clinton's latest memoir—which is the near total lack of anything actually newsworthy in the book. With What Happened, Clinton would at last "let down her hair," Simon & Schuster's publicists loudly proclaimed before the book's publication. And that was the line dutifully repeated by reporter after reporter, as though it were a fact. As though, coming from Clinton's people, it didn't need to be checked or reported with even the slight distancing of "Hillary Clinton says she's let down her hair in her new book."
But then, there's a kind of fittingness in that hair cliché, for Clinton probably does believe she has exposed her real self, set forth the true inwardness of her feelings. She's let it all hang out. She's made it real. She's taken her hair down to talk to us, person to person. And with her belief in all that, she comes closest to revealing in the memoir what actually happened. Hillary Clinton lost in good part because she speaks and thinks, she moves and has her being, in a world of clichés.

Drink Coffee, Live Longer

AARP ^ | July 11, 2017 | Austin O'Connor 

A pair of new studies show drinking more coffee offers life-extending benefits.

Good news (in a venti cup!) for those who love coffee: Two new studies show that drinking more java could help you live a longer life.
The health effects of drinking coffee have been a point of debate over the years, with some studies showing negative effects and others positive. These just-released studies should calm the jitters for those who rely on their daily jolt — or jolts — of caffeine to get through the day. The first study, conducted by researchers from the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the Imperial College London, surveyed more than 520,000 people in 10 European countries, making it the largest study on the correlation between coffee and mortality ever conducted in a European population. Its finding: Drinking more coffee significantly reduces the risk of death.
