Debating Enforcement

In light of a federal judge’s decision to enjoin Alabama’s historic immigration law, I thought it best to revisit the reasons why Alabama enacted the law in the first place. To that end, here’s a debate between a member of the SPLC, a notorious racket masquerading as a civil rights organization,  and the great...

No-Bama in 2012?

No-Bama in 2012?

Is Barrack Hussein Obama the Democrats’ best candidate for the 2012 Presidential election?  One liberal voice, Matthew Stoller, has raised that question on Salon.com.  Core Democratic constituencies, especially labor unions, are increasingly disgusted with Obama’s hewing to the right in his attempt to woo independent voters.  While the notion of an internal party challenge...

Romney Condemns Illegal Immigration

Romney Condemns Illegal Immigration

As reported by the Boston Globe, Mitt Romney is courageous enough to tell a Hispanic audience that illegal immigration is wrong, and that he’ll fight to secure our borders.  His audience was savvy enough to support Romney’s principled stand.

Steinbeck Country

Steinbeck Country

The dividing line demarcating illegal aliens from American citizens is almost non-existent. Laws proscribing would-be residents from coming to this country without permission are merely arbitrarily drawn distinctions that have no substantive basis, other than racial animus on the part of “Anglos” who control the political process.  You can’t criminalize human beings, even human...

A Divider, Not A Uniter

A Divider, Not A Uniter

  Now that Rick Perry has formally entered the 2012 presidential race, American Rattlesnake will have a lot more to say about his record on immigration, or lack thereof, as those of you who are aware of his history might characterize his approach to the issue. Suffice it to say, we are not fans of...

Boom and Bust

Boom and Bust

With the recent decision by Standard & Poor’s to downgrade our nation’s AAA bond rating, the chaotic gyrations of the stock market, and the imminent possibility of a double dip recession, it’s difficult to find a single story that embodies the totality of the economic and fiscal problems we’re currently facing as a country....

Showdown in Ames

Showdown in Ames

A few observations about last night’s Republican presidential debate, at least as it pertains to the subjects of immigration and border control: -Newt Gingrich, despite his previous record of supporting amnesty, acquitted himself quite well. At least, rhetorically. His suggestion that American citizens be able to review prospective immigrants, although impractical in theory, does...

The Wretched of the Earth

The Wretched of the Earth

One of the most trenchant social observers and luminous writers in the English language is Theodore Dalrymple, the nom de plume of British doctor and essayist Anthony Daniels.
