“The High Cost Of Cheap Labor” and “Talking Turkey About Turkey”

The only reason that Ronald Reagan signed the first amnesty bill back in 1986 wasn’t really because the Democratic Congress promised to build a fence at the border. After all, he’d been around when the Democrats reneged on the promise made to Nixon that if he agreed to pull the troops out of Vietnam, they…

“Lincoln Was Mistaken” and “Red Coats, Blue Coats & Turncoats”

When Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address, after referring to the blood of the fallen soldiers having consecrated the ground of that Pennsylvania pasture, he concluded his brief remarks by saying that because of their ultimate sacrifice, “This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that the government of the people,…

The Little President Who Cried “Wolf!”

You have to wonder just how many times Obama is going to announce that, thanks entirely to Republicans in Congress, this nation is on the verge of going over the cliff or ending up in a ditch. I also wonder how many people still give a darn if Operation Head Start simply disappears or how…
