I just hope everyone there – and all of you out in blogland – keep in mind Bryan Caplan’s Ideological Turing Test: Strive to model your opponent’s thinking as human and well-intentioned, not demonic. I always do, even though everyone is stupid.

-Todd Seavey

American Rattlesnake: Immigration News, Activism and Analysis

-The Great Bridge: The Epic Story of the Building of the Brooklyn Bridge, by David McCullough

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 won’t be long like that, brothers, for these are the fires of God you’ve come to – these are fires of God. A fig for your feuds and vendettas! Germans and Frenchmen, Irishmen and Englishmen, Jews and Russians—into the Crucible with you all! God is making the American.

-The Melting Pot (1908)

No To Immigrant-Bashing

The chief difficulties that America faces because of current immigration are not triggered by who the immigrants are but by how many they are.

The task before the nation in setting a fair level of immigration is not about race or some vision of a homogeneous white America; it is about protecting and enhancing the United States' unique experiment in democracy for all Americans, including recent immigrants, regardless of their particular ethnicity.

-- Roy Beck, "The Case Against Immigration"

Shorter Left: Opposing illegal immigration=racist. Obama White House gun-running program that kills hundreds of innocent Mexicans=Not so bad.

What Does The Religion of Peace Teach About Charity?

This.

Devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top. There's no diversity, because we're burning in the melting pot.
