I'm not generally a fan of Trump, but I have to admit he has reason for his smug "I told you so" expression here, after he was previously excoriated in the press for rhetoric about criminal immigrants.

Donald Trump reignited the call to secure U.S. borders just hours after federal officials said the man arrested in the shooting death of a San Francisco woman was an undocumented immigrant who had previously been deported five times.

Why are so many people, who would never use blocks of duplicated code in their production code, so willing to use blocks of duplicated code in their unit test code?

The problem isn't the code, but the organization of code, amount of code, and use of libraries that takes a very simple tasks of using 5 or 6 main abstract concepts and bloating them to almost unknowledgeable objects.

Here's progressive political correctness for you:  Walmart refused to make a Confederate flag cake but was fine with making an Islamic State cake.

It’s going to be hard to find a Confederate flag in stores pretty soon.

Seems like most of the candidates are quietly focusing on fundraising at the moment.  Not so Ted Cruz, who continues to work on ties to the conservative base.

http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2015/06/25/ted-cruz-speaks-to-the-right-shuns-party-leaders/
At a time when many other Republicans are trying to expand their party's appeal, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas is making an undiluted pitch to his party's most conservative, anti-establishment wing.

Apparently Google has programmed bad road manners into their car.

Absmeier, a global business director for Delphi's automated driving programme, was being driven as a passenger in one of the cars on San Atonio Road in Palo Alto at the time of the incident. He said his prototype was cut off by one of Google's self-driving cars.

Delphi's test vehicle was an Audi Q5 SUV – reportedly equipped with lasers, radar, cameras and the special computer software that apparently imbues the car with enough life to drive itself, with a human at the wheel as mere back-up.

+Brad Jennings My understanding is that the "human error" crashes involved the Google car being rear ended and were the most common type of crash with them.  While traffic rules say the car in back is at fault there, in practice it's very easy to cause an accident by braking suddenly, and I certainly avoid braking in a way that will likely cause me to be rear ended.  Google still has some work to do here.

Why is our border so porous that someone can be deported and reenter five times, ultimately committing murder  here?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/03/man-arrested-in-connection-with-san-francisco-killing-had-been-deported-several/
The man arrested in connection with the seemingly random killing of a woman who was out for a stroll with her father along the San Francisco waterfront is an illegal immigrant who previously had been deported five times, federal immigration officials say.

Scott Walker seems to have a knack for presenting conservative positions in a way that makes it obvious that they're true.  Only the most die hard leftist can deny that voter ID laws make voting fraud harder.

Even die hard leftist site PolitiFact has to rate his claim "mostly true".  The "mostly" part is because they hate ever to admit that a conservative's position is correct at all, let alone completely correct.

Two down, one to go.

Yesterday the EU council of finance ministers - one of the three "institutions" bailing out greece - decided not to extend the bailout past June 30 since Greece hasn't agreed to anything in the negotiations.

Today the European Central Bank elected to leave liquidity assistance at its current levels, which prompted Greece to declare a week long banking closure.

Coming up next:  the IMF's reaction on June 30 when Greece most likely misses their June payment.  We'll see if Lagarde sticks to her statements that she would declare Greece in default immediately.

By the time of the referendum next Sunday, Greeks should know what a "no" vote will mean.

Tsipras calls a referendum ... for five days after Greece defaults.

Shows how stupid he was to follow Varoufakis' foot dragging negotiating policy.

http://www.wsj.com/articles/greece-calls-referendum-on-bailout-terms-1435357873
Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said the country will hold a referendum July 5 to decide on whether Greece should accept demands made by international creditors for more austerity in exchange for further international aid.

+Zoran Spoljar I don't in principle have a problem with calling a referendum, but the right time to have called it would have been two months ago, or at least last week.

Leaving the euro would put Greece right back where they were before they joined, though, when they were even worse off than they are today, despite all of today's hangover symptoms from the Greek government spending binge.

If they vote to stay in the euro, they will be glad of it eventually.  As New Democracy showed last year, actually following the EU plan resulted in economic growth and declining unemployment, things that are not happening today.
