A government shutdown and not over cuts or more spending

| January 21, 2018

We are dealing with a government shutdown once again. Our ineffective elected politicians in Washington DC can’t figure out how to work together in a way to even keep the federal government doors open for business … let alone do the actual work to improve the country without making someone suffer (those depending on a […]

A timeline of US immigration from theSkimm

| March 13, 2017

The US has been going through immigration policy mood swings since the American Revolution. At first, only “free white persons” can become citizens. And over the next several decades, immigration (mostly from Europe) is fairly free flowing, because Thomas Jefferson and friends want more people to come party in the USA. In 1868, an NBD […]

Stephen Colbert discusses illegal immigration on Capitol Hill

| September 24, 2010

Heated debate continues on both sides seeing politicians from California (and […]

Would legalizing drugs improve our illegals and border problem?

| May 19, 2010

Yesterday’s repost concerning illegal immigration triggered a comment from a regular reader concerning his thoughts on drugs.

Arizona Senate Bill 1070 – evil or commonsense

How draconian is the new Arizona illegal immigration law? Read for yourself below:
