Now, perhaps by coincidence, the Democrat-supported Marxists occupying city parks across the country are calling for socialism or whatever nom du jour they want to call it, with whatever coherency they can muster on a given day. Only an idiot or a liar would argue that the Marxist movement is not out to destroy American free enterprise. And, yes, he is a Marxist. In fact, his name is Professor Richard D.
After a year of teaching, she earned a public policy fellowship from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute CHCIwhich is dedicated to helping obtain government jobs for young Latinos.

Gomez worked for three years as the senior education policy adviser to Rep. She also spent five years at the American Federation of Teachers, where she lobbied Congress on education policy.
Gomez played a key role in the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, which decreased interest rates for student loans. Latinos filling more high-level government jobs By Richard S. Supreme Court has focused national attention on her Latino heritage and the history-making nature of her selection.
But the bright spotlight on Sotomayor has obscured a highly significant shift in the ways of Washington: President Obama has selected far more Hispanics for his administration than any previous president in American history.
That shatters the 5. Bush during the first 18 months of his presidency, according to Office of Management and Budget statistics.
Bush had broken the previous record held by his predecessor, Bill Clinton, who filled 4. In addition to 33 positions requiring Senate confirmation, Obama has chosen 26 Latinos for White House staff jobs -more than any of his predecessors. But it also reflects a Hispanic power shift from Texas to California.
Of the top Latinos in the Obama administration, 21 have connections to the Golden State, while 14 boast Texas ties - a reversal from Bush and Clinton days. Civil rights advocates hail the rapid increase in Latino employment in the West Wing and beyond. The Obama administration is simply reflecting the emerging reality of America in the early 21st century.
It also reflects the complexity of a president who proudly calls himself an American "mutt" - a biracial president, the son of an immigrant, a person who has experienced racism and benefited from affirmative action.
And it demonstrates the growing political clout of a coveted and pivotal voting bloc that has trended strongly Democratic in the past two national elections.
But the administration remains sensitive to charges from some conservative commentators that it has elevated diversity over competence.
California shift But Obama did not have a similar relationship with Texas.

We had organized a nonviolent protest against segregation and racism in the barrio high schools of East Los Angeles.
Over 10, students marched in that historic protest. I was later indicted and imprisoned for "conspiracy to disturb the peace and quite of the neighborhoods" along with 12 other student and community civil rights activists. We each faced 66 years in prison if convicted. After two years, the California Appellate Court found us innocent, thanks to the 1st Amendment of the U.
Martin Luther King, Jr. We called it the Chicano Movement. At age 10, Cesar and his family moved to California to look for migrant work after the family lost their small farm.
Child labor was commonplace during those years. Prior to his emergence as the founder of the United Farm workers of America in thes, not a single Mexican American leader had achieved national recognition. We were the "invisible minority.
I wrote him a letter congratulating him for being the first Latino ever to achieve the honor Time magazine had bestowed on him. He responded a couple of weeks later and thanked me, but he went on to say that the men and women on the picket lines, and not he, deserved to be on the front cover of Time magazine.
That was the kind of man he was. A man who, like the workers he led, was from the salt of the earth. Now, decades later, we have a Cesar Chavez Holiday in several states of the union. But the struggle to make it a national holiday continues today.Evergreen Air is a CIA front company for chemtrail operations within the US, based out of Marana Air Park near Tucson Arizona and McMinville Oregon, near Portland.
