Racist Rove Reveals Republican Reality

Friday, February 9th, 2007

From The National Review, a decidedly conservative magazine: According to a congressman's wife who attended a Republican women's luncheon yesterday, Karl Rove explained the rationale behind the president's amnesty/open-borders proposal this way: "I don't want my 17-year-old son to have to pick tomatoes or make beds in Las Vegas." (emphasis ...

Immigrant Nation

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

CNN's Lou Dobbs is an endearingly loopy dog who has hold of the immigration bone and won't stop chewing. Regardless of what sort of carnage the rest of the world is experiencing Bulldog Lou ledes with immigration. Even when he touches on other stories, the commentary moves back around to ...

Let’s Rumble Virgil Goode

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

I recently wrote a post about the ascendency of the wussy in American politics. Like most bullies, these quivering mounds of Jello talk tough about chasing down every Amal, Abdul, and Hussien they can find in an attempt to stop "terrer" and avenge the victims of 9/11. But these bullies ...

Demanding the Government Enforces Immigration Policy Does Not Make You A Racist

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006

In the latest issue of The Nation, I came across an editorial about illegal immigration, except that they never do say the word 'illegal' anywhere in the article. There is no author credited with this editorial, but perhaps that's just as well, because after reading it, I'm not so sure ...

Yearning Masses Hungry to Free Burritos

Sunday, July 9th, 2006

In the interesting and quite bizarre department, an opinion piece in today's WaPo points out a government contract up for bid that just has to be true, because it is so weird. The Department of Homeland Insecurity is asking for bids on a contract for an "indefinite quantity, indefinite delivery ...

Why I Defend Civil Liberties So Adamantly

Saturday, June 17th, 2006

Several BIO debates recently have zeroed in on the topic of civil liberties and whether the full protection of our laws should remain in effect in the post-9/11 world, especially with non-citizens in general and Arabs and Moslems in particular. Some people, who are motivated by a powerful and ...

Rose Colored Glasses

Thursday, May 18th, 2006

In the 1960s the progressive movement that changed the world was often accused of looking at the world through “rose-colored glasses.” This was a boon for the tinted glasses industry, because rose colored glasses actually became a short lived fashion trend. But, after almost 40 years looking at the 1960s ...
