The USMCA, a change from NAFTA, is a bipartisan trade agreement that some think could benefit America’s farmers, ranchers, businesses, and workers. Once approved by Congress, the USMCA is supposed to help longstanding trade problems by giving American businesses more freedom to sell their goods and services throughout North America.
When asked by a reporter if she thinks Pelosi should bring up the USMCA, Hirono responded by saying “the what?” The reporter asked again, if Pelosi should bring up the USMCA for a vote in the House, to which Hirono responded again by asking “the USMCA?”
One of her staffers then cut in, and said to Hirono, “the new NAFTA.” Hirono paused for a while and then said, “I have to think about that.”
How much does a cup of water cost in Aptos, CA? About 75 cents for the cup.
Sno-White Drive In now charges about $.75 for a paper cup that costs .07 cents. Sno-White charges about 10 times what the cup costs. This is a new charge.
Someone recently bought a breakfast sandwich ($3.50) and also asked for a half cup of water.
The customer gave Sno-White a $5.oo bill and was given back a quarter, a nickel and a few pennies. As the breakfast sandwich costs $3.50 the additional charge for the paper cup was about $.75.
Asked ‘why charge for water?’ the reply from the cook/ owner was ‘I charge for the cup’.
So, what do paper cups cost? About 7 cents.
You can buy 1,000 hot/cold paper cups (12 oz) on Amazon for $69.85 with no charge for shipping.
Sno-White Drive In in Aptos, CA has good ‘burgers. It’s located near the entrance to Seacliff State Beach.
Charging 10 times the cost for a paper cup is not good public relations. When a customer wants a cup of water — let them have it for free. That’s good PR.
The City of Watsonville just recently now requires all restaurants which provide paper cups to charge 10 cents. They do so based on the state wide law regarding paper bags.
Per The Santa Cruz Sentinel 7/12/2019 Santa Cruz County eyes sweeping plastic prohibitions. Also under consideration is a fee for disposable cups — similiar to the statewide 10 cent fee for grocery bags — and a requirement that all businesses provide recycling bins for their customers.
Aptos Psychologist: Pe adage, ‘Waste not, want not.’
Best to keep handy a re-usable bag for groceries and a re-usable cup for water.
Sno-White Drive In has good, reasonably priced ‘burgers. Keep a water bottle in your car.

Does it matter whether your’re a citizen or resident of USA in 2020? Yes, it matters mightily.
You should care about the question of citizenship on the upcoming 2020 Census. We need an honest count of residents compared to citizens. If we don’t ask — we don’t know.
Organizations and state governments which encourage more population, e.g., California by its generous welfare system and Sanctuary Cities , care mightily. CA wants a larger population precisely because more population means more power in Congress. That’s because of how our the 435 congressional representatives are divided among the USA states.
Seats in the House of Representatives are apportioned among the states by total population.
Since ‘residents’ are counted as part of the total population that means that illegal aliens who are present at the time of the census are counted in the apportionment process.
Here’s a hypothetical: Imagine that suddenly — overnight — the populations of California (39 million) and Texas (29 million) doubled due to an influx of millions of illegals coming over the southern border into Texas and California. Were that unlikely hypothetical to occur, both CA and Texas would increase the number of representatives for each state. The total number of representatives is set at 435. Some states would lose representatives and some states — such as CA and Texas — would gain representatives. More representative equates to more political power.
What is a citizen? In 1787, the Constitution defined citizenship as open to “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof.”
What’s a population census? A population census is the total process of collecting, compiling, evaluating, analysing and publishing or otherwise disseminating demographic, economic and social data pertaining, at a specified time, to all persons in a country or in a well delimited part of a country.Sep 25, 20.
Clearly — it matters mightily how many ‘illegal aliens’ are currently in the USA as of 2020. For years politicians fume about the”millions in the shadows’. Well, let’s count them.
And then let’s require that our congressional representatives forge immigration policies in 2020 that make sense to We the People.
It’s time to change the Flores Agreement which limits the number of days children can be held from 21 to 100 days. The ‘catch and release’ policy implemented by President Obama must cease.
Yes it mightily matters how many citizens are in the USA as of 2020. It’s all about freedom.
Trump says 7/11/19 that he won’t back down, that he will use existing government information to determine how many citizens there are in the USA.

Individuals who today stand tall for freedom and individual liberty include media owner Jimmy Lai and popular Hong Kong Singer Denise Ho.
Hong Kong singer Denise Ho recently appeared before the U.N.’s Human Rights Council. Ho requested that the U.N. boot China out of the U.N because of it’s human rights abuses. Abuses include the thousands of Uyghur Muslims detained in moved for “re-education” purposes in China.
During her remarks, Denise Ho was interrupted by a Chinese diplomat. Ho is the type of person China wants to extradite from Hong Kong back to the mainland for trial because of free speech which China does not permit.
The following was printed in the Wall Street Journal 7/10/2019:
“We keep reading about the relentless march of authoritarian government, but the liberal pessimists didn’t reckon with the people of Hong Kong. Against all odds, their recent protests against a bill to allow extradition to Mainland China have forced the Hong Kong government to back down.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam declared on Tuesday that the extradition bill is “dead” and she has no plans to revive it. This is an extraordinary achievement….
“Before Hong Kongers took to the streets, the extradition law looked inevitable. It would have given China the power to pursue critics in Hong Kong by having them arrested and then brought to the Mainland for trial and imprisonment. The millions who protested understood that this law would have meant the end of Hong Kong’s legal protection against China’s politicized courts.
“You can bet Ms. Lam’s masters in Beijing will look for some other way to assert more control over Hong Kong.
And on that score, we were encouraged to see that Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo each met Monday in Washington with Jimmy Lai, a media owner who has been a consistent voice for a free and democratic Hong Kong despite risks to livelihood and limb. The meetings will be noticed and offer encouragement in Hong Kong, where U.S. companies have invested some $81 billion.
Denise Ho was interrupted by a Chinese diplomat after she suggested China should be booted from the U.N. body for its human-rights abuses and called for the council to “convene an urgent session to protect the people of Hong Kong.”
Ms. Ho is the kind of Hong Kong critic that Beijing would love to charge with something and then extradite to the Mainland.
“Constant vigilance is one price of liberty, and Hong Kongers know they’ll have to watch what Beijing and Ms. Lam do next. But meantime the rest of us should cheer the courage and resilience of the Hong Kong people who refused to bow to Beijing’s orders even when their cause looked hopeless.”

Aptos Psychologist: China aka Hong Kong’s government got a ‘black eye’ when millions of people in Hong Kong stood tall for their individual legal freedoms. Yes, why not kick China out of the U.N. for it’s human rights abuses. And do the same for other countries who consistently abuses human rights. There’s quite a list of countries who abuse their citizen’s basic human rights. Maybe the U.N. should fold up and go away?
Are people aged 18 – 24 “stupid”? So says Kamala Harris who seeks to be President in 2020.
During a keynote address at a symposium hosted by the Ford Foundation in 2015, Senator Kamala Harris, who at the time was the California attorney general, called people aged 18 to 24 “stupid.”
Kamala Harris said, “What’s the other thing we know about this population? And it’s a specific phase of life. And remember, age is more than a chronological fact. What else do we know about this population, 18 through 24? They are stupid.” “That is why we put them in dormitories, and they have a resident assistant. They make really bad decisions,” she added.
In 2011 the current San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon conferred Certificates of Completion of the program to eleven (11) graduates of Back on Track.Harris states she started a Back On Tracks program in 2015. No numbers are readily a available as to how many have completed the Back on Track program which Harris refers to.

Shown below is a real ad, pushing the trans agenda, put out by Gillette.
In a deep voice, the young woman talks to the camera about finding herself:
“I went into my transition just wanting to be happy. I’m glad I’m at the point where I’m able to shave.”
“Growing up, I was always trying to figure out what kind of man I wanted to become, and I’m still trying to figure out what kind of man that I want to become.”
A beaming father is present for her first pruning of the ol’ facehedge. She recites what he’s taught her about mastering the mandibular manscape:
“North, north, east, west, never in a hurry.”
Dad smiles in approval.
“Now don’t be scared. Don’t be scared. Shaving is about being confident. Aw, you’re doing fine. You are doing fine.”
For her, it’s Mission Accomplished:
“I’m at the point in my manhood where I’m actually happy.”
Then a caption:
“Whenever, wherever, however it happens, your first shave is special.
