Accepting Syrian Refugees isn’t about Mercy or Charity

Understand that the Administration isn’t accepting tens of thousands of Syrian migrants, or tens of millions of South American migrants out of the goodness of their hearts. Democrats don’t do “goodness of their hearts.” If they did, Republicans wouldn’t outperform them on charitable giving.

Democrats are cold-blooded, heartless, cruel totalitarians. Their welfare has destroyed Black families – something not even slavery could do. Their “education” policies have churned out kids dumber every year than the preceding. Their economic policies have created Detroit, Ferguson, Baltimore, E. St Louis, E. San Jose, and municipal bankruptcies – and states ([…]

The American Middle Class Needs to Suck It Up

I’ve often held that Vietnam is THE defining moment in our post-war history.

I bring it up here only to make a point. I know people are bored with it, and that’s unfortunate, for its lessons still need to be learned.

The most important of these is this: Had 100,000 Middle Class American kids stood their ground, said – and believed, “Hell no, we won’t go,” and been willing to go to jail for their beliefs – rather than to Canada and Sweden – tens of thousands of American lives would have been saved – and arguably hundreds of […]

Burwell Will Define America, Not Our Healthcare

While SCOTUS ruminates Burwell, while the governors await word of the fates of their budgets based on how SCOTUS holds, and while Left and Right harangue one another over subsidies, death spirals, what someone meant, who can and can’t afford what, and while we all argue over what was left on the edit floor by those who wrote this damned law, it seems everyone is missing the only salient point of Burwell.

Either Americans still live under the Rule of Law – or we do not.

All else in this discussion is tangential.

I really couldn’t care less what […]

Ferguson and America’s Elites

So much ink has been spilt and so many electrons spun over Ferguson that additional comment seemed heretofore unnecessary. Given the place our society accords attorneys, however, I cannot but respond to childishness masquerading as thoughtfulness by a Yale student who sees his future in law.

While his is an interesting column, it represents fundamentally sloppy thinking, and so is surprising from a law school student who is being trained – one hopes – in critical thinking above all else.

First: Yes, the cops are overmilitarized and often out of control. Publications from National Review to the Nation have […]

Lt. Calley, My Lai and DHS

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 […]
