Zimmerman, Martin and The Failed American Melting Pot.
I hope the Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman Fiasco has given The House of Representatives something to think about before they even consider bringing The Gang of Eight Bill to the floor of the House of Representatives for a vote. We should stipulate as an obvious given that the American Melting Pot has recently failed at making our nation more peaceful and prosperous. Like the Late Roman Empire prior to its disaster at Adrianople in AD 378, we assimilate diverse cultures no better than The Emperor Gratian could assimilate the Goths.
Unassimilated minorities in America typically hate the place. They frequently have valid and legitimate gravamen for their hatred. Anyone who looks at the rates at which African-Americans are aborted, shot, fail out of school and wind up either jobless or incarcerated couldn’t be entirely blamed for believing that most of the rest of America is attempting to eject them from our culture the way a white blood cell attacks a hostile bacteria. Absent any back-story, I really can’t blame them for hating my guts as a nameless, faceless White Man on a visceral level. Now quit being shocked. I only differ from the herd by being proudly uncultured enough to state the obvious and unpalatable truth.

More immigration bill disappointments: the “back tax” provision is a fraud, and provisional residents CAN get welfare
It gives me no pleasure to say this, but it’s increasingly clear that Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) hasn’t completely read the immigration bill he’s touting. It seems like every day, another claim made by defenders of the Gang of Eight bill gets shot down by critics who actually have read through all 844 pages. Personally, I was most immediately and deeply skeptical of the claim that our | Read More »

The people who broke immigration will not help fix it
One aspect of my growing skepticism about the immigration reform proposals advanced by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and his Gang of Eight partners is that our immigration system did not break by accident. It was mangled, deformed, defanged, and abused on purpose, by both government and private interests. Rubio’s earnest enthusiasm would be appropriate for someone cleaning up after a natural disaster, but he’s dealing with | Read More »
