State Sen. Carlos Uresti, right, leaves Federal Courthouse with family after first day of fraud trial. Embattled San Antonio constable now under federal scrutiny.
Board delays decision on La Vernia superintendent accused of repeated sexual harassment. Shelly Willett, using the term Libtards makes you look very not smart. San Antonio…run by crooked libtards…. The guy whose case was thrown out because of the corrupt, lying prosecutors? Case is still pending… Quit your lying. Anyone know what his party affiliation is?
Uresti on trial: Was political insider an outsider? | The Texas Monitor
Just like the Republican trash Ken Paxton? Another crooked politician!! Bet he supports DACA also!! So Uresti is just stupid, dumb or retarded? Which one is it? Please enter your comment! Between the ages of two and four, I lived with my family in a modest shingle house in Hollis, Queens—a neighborhood bordering the wealthy enclave of Jamaica Estates, where Donald Trump grew up. One day when I was a teenager, feeling nostalgic, my brother and I went to take a look at our old place. An elderly man answered the door. Before we knew it, he had launched into a tirade about how the neighborhood was going downhill.
We nodded, dismayed. My brother and I are half-Indian. I stay with mine. Ya gotta stay with your own kind. Nowadays, most people think of Queens as a multicultural, cosmopolitan hub. Trump—was far from a tolerant melting pot. During the s and s, Queens was a borough defined by tribalism, racial segregation, and simmering resentments. And it is precisely these feelings that Donald Trump has channeled throughout his presidential campaign. The Queens of his childhood offers a way to understand the forces that shaped the Republican presidential candidate—and why some white Americans are buying into his strangely outdated mix of fear, anger, and nostalgia.
Queens in the post-World War II era was a kind of tabula rasa; a wide, flat borough where you could leave behind crowded tenement living and carve out a small version of the American dream. The further out you went, the more it began to resemble the suburbs, with slightly larger houses and plots. But you were still part of the city.
Your kids went to the public schools, which were decent, or maybe a Catholic private school. Afterward they gathered in the nearby playgrounds. It was the sameness of these neighborhoods, their compliant ordinariness that made the borough so appealing. Queens was also a place of ethnic and racial separation.

The federal immigration law aimed to make America more white, Protestant, and Northern European by severely restricting all other immigration. For decades, with few new immigrants arriving, Queens was where second and third generations settled in and turned inward.
A piece of the American Dream
Still, the ethnic identities lingered. We all knew that Astoria was the Greek neighborhood. College Point was Irish Catholic. Forest Hills had its fragile atmosphere of Holocaust history and Jewish assimilation. When I was a teenager, I went to an orthodontist in the neighborhood.
