    Certain politically-correct refugee religious backgrounds are preferred while others are essentially ignored. And in almost no instance are the refugees properly-vetted Having long admired your home as a place of peace and a comfortable living, a hungry man unlawfully breaks and enters and, his admiration having been confirmed, decides to take up residence. His family joins him, and soon new babies arrive to anchor his claim that he has a “right” to residence in your home.

    Ron Paul slams it right out of the ballpark. When a Cut is Not a Cut One might think that the recent drama over the debt ceiling involves one side wanting to increase or maintain spending with the other side wanting to drastically cut spending, but that is far from the truth. In spite of the rhetoric being thrown around, the real debate is over how much government spending will increase. No plan under serious consideration cuts spending in the way you and I think about it. Instead, the "cuts" being discussed are illusory, and are not cuts from current...

    LOS ANGELES - Former President Bill Clinton praised President Bush on Saturday for supporting reforms that would allow millions of illegal immigrants to seek citizenship but said the debate in Congress is being fomented by Republicans who want to divide America. "I'm proud of him for doing it and I thanked him for doing it," he said of Bush during a "Cafe con Clinton" breakfast speech to the annual conference of the National Council of La Raza, the nation's largest Hispanic civil rights advocacy group. Clinton said Bush's roots in Texas — which has one of the nation's largest Hispanic...

    After six years of dilly-dallying and excuse-making, the feds now appear poised to extend compensation to all victims who contracted Hepatitis C because of Canada's tainted blood disater, regardless of date of infection. The change in policy -- announced last week but with details still to come -- should finally extend relief to the so-called "forgotten" victims who were infected before the government's cruelly arbitrary cutoff date of 1986 and post-1990. We suspect the change of heart came about more because of an embarrassing surplus in the compensation fund than because it was the right thing to do. After all,...

    Al Gore. State election officials ultimately declared George W. Bush the winner by a margin of 537 votes, but during and after the election dispute, questions remained about the uncounted ballots of 175,010 voters, ballots that had been rejected by error-prone tabulating machines employed in many Florida counties. Confusion and conflict, much of it generated by partisan intrigue, prevented these ballots from being counted during the election controversy. However, in 2001 every uncounted ballot was carefully examined in a scientific study by the University of Chicago, which concluded that when all the votes were counted, more votes had been cast...
