first_imgBy Susan Stamper BrownForty-six million viewers witnessed the unorthodox but predictable clown show congressional Democrats put on during President Trump’s first State of the Union speech. Despite that, an astounding majority of Americans (75 percent to be exact) told CBS News they approved.The same poll found that 81 percent believed Trump was trying to unify the country, 91 percent liked his infrastructure plan, 75 percent supported his national security ideas and 72 percent agreed with his immigration proposals. And, heaven-forbid, sixty-five percent said Trump’s speech made them feel proud.During the speech, the world watched sulky Democrats — who had the same deer-in-the-headlights expression they had the night Trump won the election ‒ effectively boo America and sit on their sorry keisters when Trump talked about things like unity and the fact that ISIS is on the run. They also refused to celebrate that Hispanic and African-American employment is at an all-time low, thanks to the white guy they erroneously call racist.The world watched when Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., bolted from the House chamber when the audience began chanting, “USA! USA” and later offered an ignorant and childish response: “Whoever translated it [Trump’s speech] for him from Russian did a good job.”And, oh my, it was as if Democrats sucked all the air out of the room when Trump said that line which will go down as one for the ages, “Americans are dreamers too.”This is not normal, folks.After the speech, social media lit up with Trump haters who reflexively disliked his speech and ostracized those who didn’t, labeling them “neo-Nazi’s and white supremacists.”The day after the speech, author Stephen King called the train crash with Republicans on board that killed one and left others injured “karma.” The same day, I received a ridiculous email from a reader who called the GOP “GOPigs,” writing, “I hope you caught the lie fest last night and saw the almost instant karma of the Trump train hitting a refuse truck. Lol. Maybe there is a god after all.”I reiterate, joking about trash truck workers being killed and injured is not normal, the same way that it is not normal to suggest that your political opponents “should be lined up and shot” like Art Institute of Washington professor John Griffin posted on Facebook last May while clarifying to followers, “that’s not hyperbole; blood is on their hands.”A little more than a month later, another flaming leftist Democrat with a GOP hit list in his pocket, James Hodgkinson, opened fire on Republican congressmen during a recreational baseball game practice June 14, 2017.Unfortunately, what’s not normal for most Americans has become commonplace for Democrats.In recent years we’ve watched a tsunami of the crazy swamp the Democratic Party, a party which has devolved into a spectacle of the bizarre with its revolt against things most Americans consider custom and ordinary.From dressing up in vagina costumes to shutting down the government because they care more about illegal aliens than military patriots, Democrats have gone full blown cray-cray. They’ve shown us what they are made of and that they hate our president much more than they love America.As this clown show continues, it’s best for normal folks to pop some popcorn and step aside, remembering Napoleon’s maxim to never interfere with the enemy when he is in the process of destroying himself.FOOTNOTE: Susan Stamper Brown lives in Alaska and writes about culture, politics and current events.

Remember these tips when you’re building your Web application to make it easier for analysts to quickly create more accurate, repeatable automated tests.1. Ambiguity is the enemyBe as specific as possible in your code. Of course, you’re already following W3C standards, right? Here are three things you can do to avoid problems in automated tests:• Use meaningful names and IDs for elements. Auto-generated IDs aren’t always intuitive and may change every time a page loads. For example, setting the username edit box on a login page to something like “loginUserName” makes it easy for analysts and automated testing tools to identify the field.• Use IDS on tags to differentiate content for pages that share the same URL, such as pages that use Dynamic HTML or AJAX.• Follow CSS standards. Classes and IDs are not the same thing, so don’t use them interchangeably.2. There’s more than one waySupport any alternate ways a user can interact with an element. For example, if hovering over an element opens a flyout menu, support a click to open the menu too. Automated testing tools handle clicks much more gracefully because they rely on a specific action instead of timing. Plus, it’s always good practice to anticipate other ways that users may choose to interact with elements.3. Don’t use a hammer to drive a screwGet rid of unexpected behaviors in elements. For example, let a link be a link. The expected behavior for an tag is to navigate to a different page. If you add an onclick handler to the tag and navigate from the onclick, you’re deviating from the expected behavior of the link. If you’re navigating with the link, the href attribute is sufficient and expected. If the link doesn’t navigate, a different tag, such as or read more
