Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

Tatoo You!

Dear Readers:

Bill O'Reilly, that darling of the radical right, made an interesting statement yesterday: Many African Americans are “ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads.”

Well folks, he's absolutely right, but this isn't a race issue like he would have us believe, its more of a class issue!

Like it or not, we have a well defined class system here in North America and at the bottom it goes by many names: white trash, low life's, trailer park scum, niggers, spics, drug dealers, gangstas, hillbilly's, wet-backs, prostitutes and pimps etc. etc!

BUT, even though there will always be a certain percentage of people at the bottom of the heap that are unsalvageable, it is up to us, as a progressive, twenty first century society, to try and help and educate as many of them as possible.

Not just right them off like brother Bill does! (Or, as the Republicans like to say: "They don't call it the White House for nothing!" Which is why they are so upset about Obama living there!)

In a rather disturbing, or maybe even shocking development, according to Politico.com, Donald Drumpf’s support among Republican voters appears to be as deep as his hard-core GOP opposition, suggesting that the forces seeking to block his nomination will have to do more than just prevent him from winning enough delegates for a first-ballot victory, according to a POLITICO analysis of voting and polling data.

Trump has won only about 37 percent of the vote in the GOP primaries and caucuses thus far. But that doesn’t mean the entire 63-percent majority of Republicans who voted against him are resolutely opposed.

(Is THIS who Americans want as their President?)
National polls show that even as Trump’s image has cratered among the broader electorate, more Republicans have a favorable opinion than view him unfavorably. In the states that have already voted, as many Republican primary voters said they would be satisfied if Trump won the nomination as said they wouldn’t, according to exit polls. Majorities in the large states that voted on March 15 said they would be satisfied with a choice between Trump and Hillary Clinton and wouldn’t consider voting for a third-party option.
As Republicans barrel toward a fight on the convention floor for the party’s presidential nomination, majorities say that Trump should be the nominee — even if he falls short of the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch on the first ballot.

MEANWHILE: On the other side of the room, Bernie Sanders is still behind when it comes to delegates and votes, but he has one clear advantage over his Democratic and Republican presidential rivals — a lot of people actually like him.

By 48 percent to 39 percent, more Americans have a favorable than an unfavorable opinion of Sanders, giving him the best net-positive rating in the field, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Unlike the other candidates, Sanders also is doing better as more Americans get to know him: His favorable rating is up from an earlier AP-GfK poll.
The numbers speak to Sanders' rapid rise from a relatively unknown Vermont senator to a celebrated voice proclaiming political revolution. They also reflect just how unpopular the rest of the field is.

The White House is coming under renewed pressure to declassify 28 pages of a congressional report on the Sept. 11, 2001 hijackings before President Obama leaves office next year.

The debate over the pages, which allegedly indicates that the 19 Saudi Arabian nationals who carried out the deadly attacks received some kind of support from the Saudi government has ebbed and flowed ever since the report was first published in 2002.
Some feel Obama should use the visit to declassify the redacted pages and finally put to rest an issue that has dragged on for nearly 15 years. One of the transparency advocates is former Sen. Bob Graham (D-FL) who oversaw a congressional investigation into the Sept. 11 attacks that was separate from the independent 9/11 Commission inquiry.
In an interview with 60 Minutes, Graham said that said the hijackers were "substantially" supported by the Saudi government, as well as charities and wealthy people in that country.
"I think it is implausible to believe that 19 people, most of whom didn't speak English, most of whom never had been in the United States before, many of whom didn't have a high school education — could have carried out such a complicated task without some support from within the United States," Graham said. 
Of course, if a connection is made it could impact every aspect of the diplomatic relationship, from military cooperation to gas prices – all factors President Obama is likely considering as he weighs the decision.

Scientists have analyzed parts of a manuscript written on pieces of pottery from around the time of the Jewish King David (c.1000 B.C.) and came to the startling conclusion that: "The Bible is really old!"

After a really mild winter here in Southern Ontario it appears that April was the snowiest month of the year in Toronto, and we're not even half way through it yet!

AND FINALLY: Even though a great percentage of the North American population are idiots, it seems there is a fair amount of reasonably smart people who took a survey in Space.com and answered the following question:
Some scientists theorize that our universe is fake, and actually a simulation. Do you think we're trapped in an epic computer simulation? 

-Yes, we are trapped in the Matrix, Neo. 33% (577 votes) 

-No, our universe is clearly a real, physical realm. 40% (694 votes) 

-Not sure, and I don't think I want to find out. 27% (472 votes) 

Total Votes: 1743

P.S. I was in the 'not sure' category!
