I.C.E. Now Deems Illegal Alien Children ‘Unaccompanied’

U.S. southern border sign

Nothing like semantics to confuse the masses. According to reports, I.C.E. is no longer using the term “Unaccompanied Alien Children” to refer to the stream of minor illegal aliens flooding across the Southern border. The children have commonly been referred to as “unaccompanied alien children,” or “UACs.” With the new directive, laid out in a June 4 email, both terms ...

I wonder…

Hmmm, I wonder what will happen when a culture that has been made afraid of its traditions, guns, speaking up, standing up, and making a stand because anyone who does will be attacked and jailed. A society that has been made afraid of its government and what has become a ruling class. A society that has been torn apart and ...

Thanks, Reilly

In this time of partisan politics and societal narcissism, we, as a people – both individually and as a society – often forget the underlying idea behind e pluribus unum, “out of many, one,” our national motto. It is based in a notion that many individuals can come together to form a society – a free, civilized society, where each ...

Parenting (citizen) and Kids (government) Story

A little story about parenting: Imagine: Parents have told their kids that they had better clean their room or they don’t get any ice cream. Instead of cleaning the kids making it messier, thinking that they will PUNISH the parents- that the they parents will break and give in. How dare the parents deny ice cream? Parents still say no. ...

Vote Often and Vote Often!

obama chicago politics

California legislators have once again decided they know best. Instead of fixing our infrastructure, getting our debt under control, and making sure we weren’t the most welfare-friendly state in the union, they come up with another drug induced law called “CVRA,” the California voting rights act (signed into law in 2002). The law, in its simplest form (obviously crafted by ...

Thought Police Recruiting !

I love receiving emails from people responding to issues posted on my website, both positive and negative. Some pieces are written by fellow hosts, bloggers and other writers, but all are issues worth discussing. I recently posted one about the “birther” issue. There are still investigations as to President Obama’s birthplace. The only people who accept 100 percent that Obama ...

What Does Someone Have to Do to Get Fired Around Here?

congress_job sign_001_16x9

When I was a kid, (yes, back when a tablet device was an Etch-a-Sketch) my Dad advised me to get a job with AT&T or Edison or the government. Why? Because they would be around forever and it’s nearly impossible to get fired, especially as a civil service or union member. Fast forward 30+ years later only to find out he was absolutely correct! ...

Call a Spade, a Spade

As we all by now know, LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling has been fined and banned from basketball. It is clear he is a racist and very clear that the NBA did the right thing today. Some are claiming that he has the First Amendment – freedom of speech – to back him. No, all the First Amendment does is ...

Progressives & The Continued Urban Slaughter

Over the Easter weekend, the City of Chicago experienced a rash of violence that eclipsed anything taking place on the battlefields of Afghanistan or in the uncivilized Taliban-held territories of Pakistan’s border region. 18 people were shot in several incidents, 13 of them dying from their wounds. This is nothing new to Chicago where for years the annual body-count has ...

An Oligarchy and Not a Republic? No Kidding?

benjamin-franklin

The Washington Times is reporting that a study by Princeton and Northwestern Universities has determined that the fundamental transformation of the United States of America has already taken place. We have transitioned from a Republic (as our Framers intended) to an oligarchy: “America is no longer a democracy — never mind the democratic-republic envision by Founding Fathers. Rather, it’s taken ...

The Danger of Granting Lerner Immunity

The House Oversight & Government Reform Committee has voted to advance a Contempt of Congress charge against Lois Lerner, the former Director of the IRS Exempt Organizations Division. The vote was 21 to 12, brought about by Ms. Lerner’s refusal to provide information about the IRS’s targeting of Conservative advocacy groups vying for 501c3 tax-exempt status, especially during the period ...
