Reaching Out

One thing that can’t be said of Americans is that we lack generosity. We are, in fact, some of the most generous people on the planet. A vivid illustration of this characteristic munificence is the outpouring of help from people  living throughout the country who’ve responded to the needs of New Yorkers devastated by...

I would like to personally thank everyone who has donated money, goods or time to the relief effort taking place throughout New York City and New Jersey due to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy. I’ve had several friends-including those that have been impacted directly-who have decided to contribute to this monumental task in...

Posturing

Posturing

Understand that America is God’s Crucible, the great Melting-Pot where all the races of Europe are melting and re-forming! Here you stand, good folk, think I, when I see them at Ellis Island, here you stand in your fifty groups, your fifty languages, and histories, and your fifty blood hatreds and rivalries. But you...

Don’t Forget Queens

Don’t Forget Queens

There’s nothing much to admire about public officials, but one thing they do have is lots of office space. The Queens Chronicle has a list of distribution points where you can drop off much-needed supplies. There is also an hurricane drive at The Quays Pub, Astoria NY taking place today. According to my friend, they’re taking...

The Politics Of Liberty

The Politics Of Liberty

The disembodied, suspended rock face you see above is probably the only redeeming feature of Work in Progress, the dreadful night club where  Libertyfest was held. Thankfully, the day overshadowed the venue. Mike Salvi, the Master of Ceremonies, did a capable job overseeing the proceedings, despite the unusual nature of the event and sporadic disruptions, gently...

Petty Tyranny

Petty Tyranny

As I mentioned in my previous entry, I attended yesterday’s small, yet spirited, rally against the decision by the Board of Health-at Chairman Bloomberg’s urging-to prohibit the sale of sugary drinks above 16 ounces at restaurants and food carts throughout New York City. There were many civically-minded New Yorkers in the crowd-such as the man...

The Human Pipeline

The Human Pipeline

This website has extensively chronicled one of the most pernicious byproducts of our dysfunctional system of mass immigration and lax border security. Namely, the scourge of human trafficking. A recent BBC investigative report has once again revealed the pervasive nature of this 21st century incarnation of involuntary servitude. The fact that women from remote regions of...

A Legendary Voice Signs Off

This weekend saw the passing of yet another radio icon. For those of you who may not be from New York, or are not regular listeners of WABC, the name Lynn Samuels might not ring a bell. However, for those of us who were avid talk radio listeners during 77 WABC’s golden age she...

No Free Lunch

No Free Lunch

  It would appear that the remnants of Occupy Wall Street have decided to hook up with the open borders movement in order to push for more lax immigration enforcement in a state where it has almost entirely disappeared. Joanna Marzullo, President of New York ICE, has all of the details.   Hi NY ICers,...
