    Germany is taking some extraordinary steps to try to accommodate an estimated 1.5 million Muslim immigrants that will enter the country this year. In a number of locations German students have been assigned to perform domestic chores—including doing laundry, preparing meals and cleaning up after the immigrants. These tasks have been made more arduous and risky by the obnoxious behavior of some of the beneficiaries, which includes throwing their trash out the windows of the apartments provided for them and raping the females entering the premises to clean. Inhabitants of small towns being inundated by swarms of migrants have been...

    She's an honor roll student and accomplished violinist. She also refuses to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance. Enidris Siurano, a student at Damascus High School, was born in Puerto Rico. Siurano says she hasn't recited the pledge since seventh grade to protest the political situation there. "The government that's there should be the one that's running it, not one that's miles and miles away," she said. But only recently has her refusal caused so much turmoil that she and her family turned to the ACLU of Maryland. "Enidris was repeatedly directed by her teacher to stand," said an...

    If Charles Dickens were writing "A Tale of Two Cities" about today's Afghanistan, his opening line would be abbreviated: "It was the worst of times." "Sunday was a particularly deadly day in Afghanistan," reported the Associated Press this week. "Roadside bombs and militant attacks killed seven American soldiers, 19 Afghan civilians and seven Afghan policemen. "Violence erupted again on Monday as militants launched suicide attacks on two police headquarters and carried out other assaults that left 20 people dead -- three policemen, an Afghan prosecutor, two children and 14 attackers, according to officials." But when are there ever peaceful stretches...

    Debt Crises: What a sorry spectacle to watch Greeks rioting in the streets in reaction to austerity measures. As if tantrums can change reality. It's Exhibit A of how socialism infantilizes citizens. The only cure is free markets. As Greece's legislature heads for a vote Wednesday to cut the size of its government by $40 billion in exchange for the last $17 billion of a $156 billion International Monetary Fund bailout on July 3, the world's television screens are flooded with images of young "indignantes" calling a riotous 48 hour-strike in Athens. Steeped in socialism for decades, these Greeks see...
  • Haitians denounce occupation after U.S. troops arrived at the National Palace

    Port au Prince (AFP) .- Hundreds of Haitians attended on Tuesday, between resignation and anger, the impressive helicopters landing of U.S. troops in the presidential palace, in an act considered by many a loss of sovereignty. "It's an occupation. The palace is the country, represents our power, our face, our pride," Feodor Desanges criticism. A week after the earthquake that devastated the Haitian capital, leaving between 100,000 and 200,000 dead, this was the first time that the Haitians were able to observe the troops sent by the U.S. in the downtown. "I have not seen distributing food in the city...

    Insatiable links lecher Tiger Woods was in bed with an underwear-model mistress when he learned his beloved dad had died, according to a bombshell report. Woods visited dying dad Earl, 74, who was in a hospice, on May 2, 2006 -- then returned to his Newport Beach, Calif., home for a quickie with Jamie Jungers, reported the British tabloid News of the World. When a 3 a.m. call came from Woods' mom saying the golfer's dad was dead, Jungers told the paper, "I was beside [Tiger] wearing nothing but a pair of panties. "She called to tell him that his...

    The headline in USA Today gave me a sinking feeling: “US Airways Gives Passengers On Flight $5000.00 Each -- Passengers Wonder, Is it Enough?” Is it enough? Is anything ever enough anymore? It is absolutely, positively inconceivable that anyone aboard the miraculous US Airways Airbus whose pilot made a safe water landing after birds were sucked into the engines would expect US Airways to fork over a ton of money to them. This was one great story: a pilot makes a split-second decision to ditch into the frigid waters of the Hudson River, a decision that saved everyone on board...

    Juxtaposed on opposite pages of the BBC International newspaper were two stories: "..thousands of people (in Seoul, South Korea) protesting against resumption of U.S. Beef imports..." and "The U.S. announced that it will send half a million tons of food aid to North Korea." How can two so closely connected groups of people hold such strong opposite opinions about the safety of U.S. food exports? Easy. It's the haves vs. the have-nots. South Korea is a strong democratic nation, our ally, who owes its existence to the U.S. and the United Nations. It has the luxury to be choosey. Its...

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Iraq's most powerful Sunni Arab political party on Monday said a U.S. soldier's desecration of the Quran, the Muslim holy book, requires the "severest of punishments," not just an apology and a military reassignment. The Iraqi Islamic Party, the movement of Iraqi Vice President Tariq al-Hashimi, condemned what it said was a "blatant assault on the sanctities of Muslims all over the world." An American staff sergeant who was a sniper section leader used a Quran for target practice on May 9. The U.S. commander in Baghdad on Saturday issued a formal apology and read a...

    Mexico's frustration with U.S. immigration policy builds Government, advocates are calling for measures to influence U.S. public opinion. By Jeremy Schwartz MEXICO CITY BUREAU Saturday, November 17, 2007 MEXICO CITY — Anger in Mexico is growing in the wake of a number of new state laws in the United States considered by critics to be anti-Mexican, a shift probably reflected in President Felipe Calderón's verbal lashing this week of U.S. presidential candidates. In tougher rhetoric toward U.S. immigration policies, Calderón scolded presidential candidates for using migrants as thematic hostages and announced a media campaign aimed at influencing American public opinion....

    People seem to care more about the pit-bull dogs seized in a recent drug raid, Larry Petty said, than they do about men like him, who line up in the cold every night to race for a cot in Madison's oldest homeless shelter. "No one pays any attention," said Petty, 48, a standout on the University of Wisconsin-Madison basketball team in the late 1970s who recently finished a prison term and now lives on the streets. He was among a couple of dozen men waiting in frigid temperatures Tuesday for the doors to open at the men's shelter at Grace...

    Two men who were asked to rap to get out of a ticket are seeking large amounts of money for what they believe was a violation of their civil rights. One of the men has filed a claim against the city of Tempe for $50,000 and the other filed a claim for half a million dollars. A claim is the first legal step toward a lawsuit against a government entity. James Baker and Robert Tarvin, who are black, were shown rapping on a segment of the police-produced cable-TV show "Tempe StreetBeat" after Tempe police Sgt. Chuck Schoville pulled them over...

    HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, September 5, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In May this year, a group of pro-life students at Northern Kentucky University (NKU) set up a display of white crosses to memorialize those children killed in the US by abortion. Such displays are popular with student groups as an affordable means of emphasizing the loss of life brought about by abortion, and are often vandalized by abortion supporters.True to form, a feminist professor incited a group of students to destroy the Northern Kentucky University display and its accompanying sign. Unlike Canada, however, the story at NKU has a happy ending for...

    About 200 people confronted police outside Foreign Affairs headquarters, demanding to come inside to tell politicians that Canada is complicit in Israeli "war crimes" against Lebanese civilians. "It sounds like our politicians are too afraid to hear their own people," Montreal activist Aaron Lakoff yelled into a megaphone outside the Sussex Dr. building yesterday. "Maybe it's because they know they're supporting apartheid, war crimes and state terrorism. They have to stop their complicit support for Israel's war on Lebanon and Palestine." A small group was allowed inside to deliver a garbage bag full of letters to Foreign Affairs staff. Arriving...

    No, this is not a list of engineer jokes. It is the story of my participation in the writing of a new stormwater manual to meet the Phase II Clean Water Act requirements. It is more like the “no good deed goes unpunished” story. The Clean Water Act was passed in the late 1960’s, originally to stop cities from dumping raw sewage into the nearest stream. It has been tightened several times since then and has made a significant improvement in water quality and safety. About 10 years ago, it was expanded to include stormwater runoff. The deadline for us...
