“Kobach’s demands included a promise for Trump to nominate him to be head of the Department of Homeland Security by November of this year — provided Kobach did not want to instead continue in the czar role — as well as around-the-clock access to a government jet and generally being able to take weekends off at his home in Kansas.

Kobach also demanded to be the main television spokesman for the administration on immigration, a guarantee of deference from Cabinet secretaries on immigration and symbols of top White House status, including a staff of seven, being able to walk into the Oval Office at will and a commensurate title at the highest pay level for White House senior staff.”

That would be a presumptuous list even if he were qualified!

From his Wikipedia entry:

“In August 2018, The Kansas City Star reported that none of the towns where Kobach helped to enact anti-immigration ordinances over a 13-year period still had those ordinances on the books. The ordinances were costly to defend in court, with some localities going bankrupt. At the same time, Kobach personally profited, earning more than $800,000 on legal work for the localities over a 13-year period, paid both by the localities and an anti-immigration advocacy group.”

“When Rowdy Herrington’s ‘Road House’ kicked its way into U.S. movie theaters on May 19, 1989, the vast majority of American moviegoers avoided it like the local dive bar notorious for stabbings and spent shell casings in the parking lot.”

If you read this page regularly, you know that the hero of this film, Dalton (Patrick Swayze), is a philosopher-bouncer upon whose teaching I have based my life.

To quote the greatest philosopher-pornographer-critic in history, “Roadhouse is a cinema classic and one of the most entertaining movies ever made. It is the White Trash Hamlet; the Redneck Romeo and Juliet; Macbeth with a Mullet; Timon of Athens, Georgia. I doubt whether making a great comedy was the original intention, but as gamblers say, ‘The cards speak for themselves.'”
