“Undocumented Immigrants” Are Not Criminals

There are graduated laws identifying the seriousness of offense. The undocumented immigrant ‘violation’ is in the nature of a misdemeanor – more like a traffic violation than an armed robbery. Our system of justice uproots lives and sends someone to prison in only the most egregious of violations. To uproot and deport someone on the […]

Ben Carson Humor – 2015

Ben Carson is that neuro guy – which seems to be an enigma given his loose tongue.  No matter – there are some really creative people running around with high tech opportunities to mix humor, politics, and technology. Enjoy:

Confusing Borders, Boundaries, and the American Comfort Level

From Ohg Rea Tone: People sometimes drift into my personal space.  I generally enjoy people so my personal space does not extend as far as the reach of my arm.  When I shake hands I am likely to pull the other person close, look them in the eye, and measure their sincerity.  The enigma of […]

Abortion and Common Sense

Abortion is not black or white, liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican.  Abortion is a problem of humanity – and this era of Abortion in American will be studied by future historians.  The folks looking back will recognize the futile and selfish partisan bickering that prolonged the agony of a health care disaster.  Both fanatical […]

Woody Guthrie Sings About Immigration

I took some minor liberties with the title. Woody Guthrie was singing about immigration – but he was referring to the dust bowl immigrants to California. We forget that time when Americans were denied entrance into another State because of economics. See Also: Where is Woody Guthrie.

English – a Mandatory Language?

We have a new pork processing plant in our town – we think the Triumph Foods Human Resource office is located in Mexico City. You know how these big corporations are. Our local school system is being challenged to offer a regular old American education to children who cannot speak the language. There is great […]

Poll: Should Resident Aliens Get a Tax rebate?

[poll=3] click on the gray box above to submit your vote I am interested in what the pulse of public opinion is on this issue. Please let me know where you stand. Notice that we aren’t using the term “illegal” for this poll. This is because the language of the Treasury department is not about […]

Tax rebates to Immigrants

Son, What do you think.  A person comes to this country in an undocumented status – that means that he is not supposed to be here.  But he gets a job and works, he pays taxes on his income.  Now we find ourselves in an economic crisis and the Congress wants to rebate money to […]

Democrats on speaking English as official language

Son, I am happy that these folks take these issues seriously.  Sometimes they sound like they are spinning the issue in their favor –  but I believe that they are not.  They are pointing out the necessary complications of making rash political decisions.  Wolf Blitzer asked the question because he knows it is a hot […]

Bruce Springsteen on Immigration

Son, Bruce Springsteen sings “This Land is Your Land” – a beautiful rendition of the Woody Guthrie classic. This song was written by a frustrated Guthrie in protest about the State by State policy on immigration. See Where is Woody Guthrie. The tragedy of the Dust Bowl swept this great nation during the Depression. People […]

McCain on Immigration – I like him (video)

Son, I like John McCain. I think he is an honest and practical man. Unfortunately the Republican Party is so irrational that the fringe party base makes it difficult for a man like McCain to win the nomination. I write about immigration from the perspective of humanity rather than economics – and that is how […]

immigration, hate crime, gun control —

Son, The conservatives have lost their bearing.  And I must say that if not for the craziness I would be enjoying myself watching the circus. Here is the conservative philosophy – one which I cannot dispute: Less Government, fewer laws – generally better.  The philosophy goes to a level of foolishness.  Hate crime you say […]

Blunt Immigration – No Drivers Licenses

Son, Governor Matt Blunt of Missouri has taken a pro-bureaucracy, anti-immigration, big Government, do-the-wrong-thing, position to get reelected. This is typical politics. Solving problems means solving the political problem – not making life better for citizens. This mentality is exactly what is wrong with government. And we the people are to blame. We are to […]

Ron Paul – the Physician Metaphor

Son, Ron Paul is a physician, a doctor, a M. D. Some folks think that qualifies him to be President. He is obviously very intelligent and very well educated. I suspect he knows a thing or two about health care issues. His physician experience is as a flight surgeon in the U. S. Air Force […]

Nebraska Mall Shooting

Son, Another tragedy in America, this time in Nebraska. A nineteen-year-young man walked into a mall with his step-father’s assault rifle and killed eight people before killing himself. The young man had a troubled life; the state estimated that it had invested $265,000 on his previous ‘treatment.’ This is not the first troubled youth to […]
