Because Obama doesn't mean it, obviously.

But what's the point of a meaningless threat?

Obamarama's been threatening to isolate China ever since the TPP was a thing.

tl;dr, the next person you encounter that says we should be spending less on immigration services, you can assume is some combination of ignorant, malicious, or incredibly stupid.

Turns out we're apparently spending less than fucking nothing! Another point of info explaining how our immigrants (documented or not) are managing to be a net economic gain.

Though the question relative to the discussion, I guess, is if we're managing to make more money off them than qatar does through their effective slaving efforts :V

Democratic party is stronkest at democracticising http://boingboing.net/2016/06/03/california-democratic-primary.html
(I suck at linking with words explaining linky thing)

TooLazyDontRedirect: Democratic Party send out generally uncounted dummy ballots to no party preference voters because they'll probably go and do something silly like vote for sanders in the primary.

They're nearly as bad as badgers. Build a couple of anti-buzzard SAM sites marksdwarf towers and your fortress will look like Baghdad in 2003 from all the aerial bolt spam. You waste a lot of ammo and everything is covered in unslightly exploded buzzard bits and broken bolts.

It isn't clear who gave those instructions though.

I've read that provisional ballots are counted as normal votes, so "dummy ballots" is quite misleading.

Uh, last I ran into 'em, yeah. Mostly. Iirc there's some kind of vetting thing before they're officially counted, but they still can be. You would be casting a provisional vote if you showed up to vote sans ID, ferex, from what I recall.

Last I heard the provisional ballots aren't even looked at unless the closeness of the "real" votes demands a recount. But this was from a previous election cycle, things could have changed.

The assumption being that if one candidate won by a decent margin the provisional ballots aren't going to change anything as they'd more or less follow the same pattern.
