Here are interesting articles from the past week that are worth a read (even if, on occasion, I do not agree).
Deportation data won't dispel rumors drawing migrant minors to U.S.
President Obama and his aides have repeatedly sought to dispel the rumors driving thousands of children and teens from Central America to cross the U.S. border each month with the expectation they will be given a permiso and allowed to stay. But under the Obama administration, those reports have proved increasingly true.
The ‘DREAM Act’ I Saw: 'It Sure Doesn't Look Like Ellis Island'
When you step foot into the control room at the U.S. Border Patrol station in McAllen, Texas, the first thing that hits you is the smell.
Hovering somewhere between urine and unwashed humanity, the air is thick and hot. The sound inside the circular, glass-enclosed control room is like that of a beehive, humming with the noise of hundreds of voices mixed with buzzers and footsteps.
“This is where we do the processing,” the border patrol agent tells us.
A 'Sudden' Crisis Obama Has Known About for Years
On June 15, 2012, Obama announced that his administration would stop deporting young illegal aliens. He calls this The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, “DACA”.
This gives the world’s nastiest criminal cartels carte blanche to convince impoverished parents in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador that they can load their kids into buses headed for the U.S. where they will be cared for, educated and cured of their illnesses… for an exorbitant fee.
They have made millions.
The Crisis on the Border
The little children in great danger, holding hands, staring blankly ahead, are pawns in a larger game. That game is run by adults. How cold do you have to be to use children in this way?
Obama hasn't hit rock bottom yet
Everywhere you walk, Mr. President, the world unravels. Americans are whispering that each political missile you fire seems to hit not its target but our own house.
You have undone the core idea you've advanced, that a larger public sector can save us. You are becoming the one-man Keystone Cops of an experiment in weakness and incompetent government.
Get Off the Dole and Get a Job: Ben Carson
Get a job. Weed a garden, wash cars, pick vegetables – whatever you have to do to make a living and avoid being on the dole. It can help save the U.S.A.
The former pediatric neurosurgeon argues that individual actions and responsibility can help right a nation badly off the rudder of fiscal and economic responsibility. The message – however much it grates against blue-state sensibilities – is resonating.
The Secret War on Black Republicans
There has been much written about the racial rhetoric that has permeated political discourse since President Obama took office, and the media often highlights the racially inflammatory language used by some of his opponents. But racially charged language targeting black Republicans rarely receives much coverage, further fueling conservative suspicion of the mainstream media.
America: Imagine the World Without Her
As a political commentator and American patriot, I am troubled constantly by our cultural amnesia about what is so great about America. I find too many people, including on the conservative side, forever apologizing for their beliefs and defensive about traditional values, capitalism and even the American idea. It's as if the leftist "shame narrative" has done a number on us — as if much of our side is now comfortable with a gargantuan welfare state and doesn't dare promote capitalism from a moral perspective.
America's vanishing bowling alleys
The U.S. had 4,061 bowling centers in 2012, down 25 percent from 1998, the earliest year for which the U.S. Census collected consistent data. But the decline of the bowling alley probably started a lot earlier.
AND FINALLY, PROBABLY NOT A CONSERVATIVE COMMUNITY...
And have a nice day!
