Alien No More

Ear to the ground, everybody. Listen close. You can hear it coming. Could be a while. Might be a bit beat up. Probably won't look like it does now. But eventually those slight puffs of dust in the distance will slide right down Main Street and America will undergo another facelift. And yes, after it's over, the whole country will appear younger and more vital. We might even buy ourselves a red convertible.

No Amendment Will Save Senate Immigration Bill; S. 744 Must Not Pass

To summarize the Senate immigration bill as it heads toward a final vote: illegal immigrants, foreign-born workers, the Chamber of Commerce and the Hispanic lobby get everything. Not even crumbs are tossed to American citizens.

Why Was Ex-Marine Brandon J. Raub Held in a Psych Ward?

You come home from serving your country in Iraq or Afghanistan. You're honorably discharged and considering your next job or career. Meanwhile, you also blog and post personal political views and song lyrics on Facebook. You have threatened no one, but that doesn't stop the FBI and police from showing up at your door.

Let’s Have More Wrist Slap Punishments

I'm being facetious when I say that this country needs more wrist-slap punishments, but things have gone to the other extreme far too long.

Sebastian De La Cruz, the Bigots and the American Dream

Yes, it is possible. You can pursue the American dream. And maybe even be on your way to achieving it by age 11. That won't necessarily stop comments by racists or cretins who think it's cool and intelligent to stereotype, belittle and insult. But they can't stop a proud and determined kid from marching, head held high, straight towards that American dream.

Washington Should Just Get Out of Their Way

Ronald Reagan once said that one of the scariest phrases in the English language is "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help." Nowhere is that saying more true than for our nation's small businesses.

Texas Senators Were For Immigration Reform Before They Were Against It

By a 82-15 vote, the Senate has taken up comprehensive immigration reform. Majority Leader Harry Reid has promised an "open as possible process" for amendments, which means creating a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million unauthorized immigrants still hasn't cleared two formidable roadblocks in Sens. John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, who respectively are insisting upon a totally secure border and no path to citizenship. Like the Texas Republican Party, Cornyn and Cruz have come a long way from their relatively progressive stances of only a decade ago. When it comes to immigration reform, they were for it ...

Guess who is Behind ‘Conservative’ Radio and TV Ads

You've seen them on television and heard them on the radio, those commercials boasting that "conservatives" like Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan are working to make sure we have a tough, enforceable immigration system that closes our borders and makes all those illegals go to the back of the line to await possible future citizenship. Well, here is my solemn pledge to you: if you believe that, then I want to sell you an iconic old bridge in New York City that connects Brooklyn to Manhattan. If you're interested, I can make you a really good deal on ...

Dreams of Superman’s fathers

It is no accident that Man of Steel, the latest Superman movie, is opening on Father's Day weekend. Television shows and movies based on Superman have always reflected America's zeitgeist, but Man of Steel goes deeper into questioning America's identify by examining the values that Superman-and thus, America-was raised with. As an inwardly directed memoir that illuminates our political conflicts, Man of Steel might as well have been called Dreams of Superman's Fathers.
