Is GOP leadership beginning to awaken from the White slumber in which they have somnambulated since the Depression, when they lost the minority vote? Be nice to think so. This ad in Colorado is a great start – but it’s only a start.
I wrote this blog post a few years back, noting that if the GOP were intelligent on immigration they could capture both the Hispanic and the Black vote, probably for generations. But the GOP is so fundamentally, enormously, appallingly, stupendously, hugeaciously stupid, that the odds are….?
The party of Old White Guys & Dolls who still believe […]Continue Reading
Boehner is about to file a suit to force the president to obey the law. He may or may not have standing to do so. But there’s a better way, one we already know works.
The root of the problem is: can the president order his branch to ignore or defy the law, to act in an illegal manner?
That sounds like a silly question. But the fact is that every employee, manager and executive in that branch of government is bound FIRST by the law and THEN by the head of that branch of government
We have heard the […]Continue Reading
How cool is this?
I’ll have to go to Ancestry.com to see how many nieces and nephews I have in various nations around the world…[…]Continue Reading
A friend sent me this video of a choir in England. It’s only a few minutes. You should watch and listen to it. You will enjoy it.
It occurred to me as I experienced the music and images – and the goosebumps they induce, that, if this doesn’t affect you, if your response is anything other than warmth and love and hope for these women and their men, you are not an American, not an Englishman, not a Westerner. You are not someone who believes in protecting Western Civilization from its enemies, enemies who now are stronger and have more […]Continue Reading
This is an article from Victor Davis Hansen, a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institute at StanfordUniversity (Emphasis added by Mr. Hansen)
The last three weeks I have traveled about, taking the pulse of the more forgotten areas of central California. I wanted to witness, even if superficially, what is happening to a state that has the highest sales and income taxes, the most lavish entitlements, the near-worst public schools (based on federal test scores), and the largest number of illegal aliens in the nation, along with an overregulated private sector, a stagnant and shrinking manufacturing base, and an […]Continue Reading
Dear President Obama:
I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.
We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.
We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.
I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I’m on my way over?
Please let him know that I will be […]Continue Reading
I’ve posted before my general thoughts on illegal immigration. If you’ve read these posts you know my view that the Left and the Right are wrong, albeit in different ways, regarding illegal immigration.
But the common thread I hold with the Right is closing the border. It is OUR border. WE are responsible for it. Borders exist FOR A REASON.
What’s really going on down at the border? How about hundreds of folks from Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Egypt, Pakistan, Somalia and a host of other enemy countries walking into – and disappearing into – America?
Based on the TV news […]Continue Reading
Our Attorney General, Eric Holder, during a Q&A with Rep. Ted Poe (R-TX):
Poe: So Arizona, since the federal government fails to secure the border, desperately passed laws to protect its own people. The law is supported by 70% of the people in Arizona, 60% of all Americans and 50% of all Hispanics, according to the Wall Street Journal/NBC poll done just this week. And I understand that you may file a lawsuit against the law. It seems to me the administration ought to be enforcing border security and immigration laws and not challenge them and that the administration is […]Continue Reading
Obama now supports the far-left Demo party line on health care for illegals.
And the Dems are correct on this; the GOP incorrect. See here for more info on immigration.
What, exactly, do the Right Winger Boomers want? A bunch of unhealthy illegals running around? Do they think that denying illegals medical care will cause them to go home to a country they risked much to leave?
This is like voting against education for illegals and their kids: Just plain ignorant. They are here. There is no way to throw out 12 or 20 or 30M people – […]Continue Reading
Both sides are missing the only significant point in the immigration debate: Mexico would collapse without the money sent home from its emigrants to America.
A collapsed Mexico would be bad for the United States. Very bad. (Pretty bad for Mexicans, too.)
In economics there is the concept of a “multiplier”. Money paid as wages or salary is spent at the grocery store, whose employees are paid and spend the money at the gas station, whose employees buy groceries. Money circulates several times through an economy. The generally-accepted multiplier in America is 6.
The $43B sent annually to Mexico removes […]Continue Reading
