Most gang members wear clothing, have tattoos, flash hand signs and/or draw graffiti that identifies their gang affiliations. A large number of the tattoos and urban art contain the telephone area code identifying the gang’s city, county or region of control. If telephone area codes within certain metropolitan locations were changed, gang tattoos, graffiti and hand signs would be rendered inaccurate, outdated and confusing.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, and Sen. Chuck Schumer, New York Democrat, have made a big mistake. As the Democratic leaders of the House and Senate they encouraged "resistance" to the Republicans, especially the Republicans in the Trump administration. That has meant only opposition -- no compromise or negotiation. The result is shown in the new tax laws, which had no Democratic input or support.
