  • Three Steps to Resolve Immigration Issue

    Canada Free Press ^ | 11/22/14 | Douglas V. Gibbs
    Enforce Existing Laws, Secure the Border, Stop Giving Illegal Aliens Free Stuff The solution to the immigration problem is simple, but the leftists have the Republican Party in such a political monkey-style crap throwing contest that the reality of the simplicity of the issue evades them. The steps are easy: Enforce existing immigration laws on the books. Secure the border. Quit giving illegal aliens free stuff. The liberal left will start screaming about the children, both coming to America, and the ones brought here outside their own choice. Yeah, yeah. When I broke my wrist, I didn’t ask the doctor...

    Gainesville Sun ^ | September 29, 2014 | By Erin Jester
    On Wednesday, Rose Gordon and her staff served 308 school lunches to all 308 students who came to school at Lake Forest Elementary. Gordon, the food service manager, said she was shocked when she saw the numbers later. Most days, she said, “I maybe miss two or three.” What Gordon saw last week can be attributed, at least in part, to Lake Forest’s membership in a federally funded program that provides free breakfast and lunch to all students at 24 local schools, regardless of ability to pay. In the past, free and reduced-price lunch was dictated by family income. This...

    FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOX) - The protests and riots in Ferguson highlighted what many already knew—residents in many North St. Louis county towns are facing unemployment, poverty and lack of educational achievement. Organizers say a job and resource fair on Saturday, Sept. 13 is designed to tackle those issues. “We’re all alarmed by the situation and events that are happening, but I’m hoping that out of that something good can come out of it, and that’s getting people jobs and getting folks back into the educational setting,” says St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley Interim President Ruby Curry.

    Lighthouses for sale! Actually, lots of lighthouses for free. Technological advances and a desire to purge unneeded properties have paved the way for the federal government to get rid of more than 100 lighthouses over the last 14 years, and it intends to keep selling and giving them away. The sold lighthouses, located on both coasts and in the Great Lakes states, have become everything from museums to bed-and-breakfasts. […] The federal General Services Administration, which sells the lighthouses, does not have a target number of how many lighthouses it would like to sell and give away, but the Coast...

    Nightmare at the border: Illegal aliens taking advantage of a system that is costly, unsustainable and dangerous The nightmare at the border shows no sign of abating anytime soon. Thousands of illegal aliens, including a massive increase in unaccompanied children, have crossed the border this year. Not surprisingly, 90 percent of the illegal minors do not show up for their court hearings and prefer to escape onto the streets of this country, knowing there is very little chance they will ever be deported. In 2013, only 1,800 of the 38,759 unaccompanied children who entered the country illegally were deported. The...

    Politico ^ | May 19, 2014 | By BRETT NORMAN
    “Free” preventive health care is one of Obamacare’s chief selling points. But as millions of newly covered people begin to seek that benefit, some are still getting stuck with bills. The Affordable Care Act requires insurers to pay the full cost of services like cholesterol checks, women’s birth control, immunizations, colonoscopy screenings and a host of other items. It also covers “well visits” for children and adults — periodic checkups not triggered by a particular health complaint. But does a free colonoscopy cover just the screening or the immediate removal of polyps, too? Does the smoking-cessation benefit include counseling, medication...

    Black teens were the worst hit by the recent Great Recession in the labor market, the capstone to a decade of plummeting employment rates among young workers, according to a recent report by the Alternative Schools Network. According to “Trends in Teen Employment in Chicago, Illinois and the United States,” any gains made by the “War on Poverty” on the rate of employment among African-American teenagers were erased over the past decade. Teens and young adults across the United States “have encountered extraordinarily severe declines in their employment rates—unmatched by any other age group,” the report stated. “While the economy...

    One of the most misused words in the English language is “free,” as in “it’s free.” Whether it’s the free samples of stuff at Costco, or the free pens and refrigerator magnets they give away at your local bank or car dealership, or the free hip replacement your mother-in-law just received, we use the term freely, so to speak, without ever considering it’s true meaning. When we say “it’s free,” what we really mean is that someone else is paying for it—voluntarily or involuntarily. And this is a very important distinction. Because one is morally defensible, while the other is...

    "We have just concluded the 5th fiscal year since President Obama took office. During those five years, the federal government has spent a total $3.7 trillion on approximately 80 different means-tested poverty and welfare programs. The common feature of means-tested assistance programs is that they are graduated based on a person’s income and, in contrast to programs like Social Security or Medicare, they are a free benefit and not paid into by the recipient," says the minority side of the Senate Budget Committee. "The enormous sum spent on means-tested assistance is nearly five times greater than the combined amount spent...

    Europeans came to this country for a better life. It hasn't always meant helping the less fortunate. The South’s aversion both to taxes and to mandated government safety net structures had a long, and somewhat surprising, pedigree. In the late eighteenth century, popular radical writers such as Condorcet in France and Tom Paine in England had called for the creation of comprehensive social insurance systems based around universal pensions, child allowances, and education for all. Neither, however, managed to successfully alter prevailing political and moral doctrines. In France, after the frenzy of the revolutionary years the counterrevolution of the post-Napoleonic...

In ObamaCare, the Regime created impossible-to-refuse incentives for all health care providers to acquire and deploy electronic health care record-keeping systems. 2. The Regime has built and deployed a gigantic server farm for the NSA in Utah capable of storing and searching virtually infinite quantities of...

    Perhaps everyone in the eighteenth century could have agreed that in theory no State was more beautiful than a republic, whose whole object by definition was the good of the people. Yet everyone knew it was a fragile beauty indeed. It was axiomatic that no society could hold together without the obedience of its members to the legally constituted authority. In a monarchy the complicated texture of the society, “the magnificence, costly equipage and dazzling splendors” lavished on the prince, the “multitude of criminal laws, with severe penalties, the very rigor of the unitary authority often with the aid of...

    LATINO & BLACK AMERICANS - FOR GOD'S SAKE, WAKE UP! The pivotal election of 2012 is over. The most liberal, progressive candidate in the history of American politics, with the worst record on the economy in his first term, Barack Hussein Obama, won re-election to a second term by 1.5-2.0% of the vote. The over-riding segments of the population that enabled his victory were the Black vote (who voted for him by over 90%) and the Latino vote (who voted for him by over 70%). And they did so, absolutely against their own best interest. Oh, in the short...

    <p>Hurricane Sandy brought out the worst yesterday in some sleazy New Yorkers, who looted stores and homes across the city.</p> <p>Some posed as Con Ed workers to dupe their victims.</p> <p>Police arrested more than a dozen looters in the Rockaways and Coney Island, which had been evacuated, and stood guard outside ravaged stores at the South Street Seaport. “This morning when they told us the water receded, I walked back to the house to feed [my pets],” said Eric Martine, 33, a cabby who lives in Brooklyn’s Gerritsen Beach. “Guys were looting, pretending they were Con Ed and holding people up.

    It's all anecdotal at this point, but if crime reports following hurricanes Katrina and Irene are any indication, the East Coast is in for a crime wave, post-Sandy. No reports of looting or Hurricane Sandy-related crimes have been reported yet but that doesn't mean we won't see some soon. Following Hurricane Katrina, the most devastating hurricane in modern memory, New Orleans was besieged with reports of looting, rape, and murder, causing delayed troop deployments, delayed medical evacuations, and police department mutiny, The New York Times reported in 2005....(excerpt)

    Exclusive: John Rocker says sunset of America is upon us based on electoral results Snip: From the implementation of the first broad-ranging social entitlement programs, which were introduced through Johnson’s Great Society back in the ’60s, little by little the American populace has become more and more comfortable suckling at the government teat over the passing decades. No one can argue that the concept of expansive socialism and far-reaching entitlement were ever a component of the founding doctrine of these United States. Yet as with many things which at first are taboo, slowly they become tolerated, then accepted, then expected....

If you on food stamps, you on social security, you got low income, you disability...,” she explained. The video cut...

    ST. LOUIS • Police were called to a church in St. Louis this morning for crowd control after an unexpectedly large crowd gathered on rumors of applying for $500 food vouchers. . .

Some members of the crowd became irate after they were sold fake applications for the vouchers. Several attendees said they had been waiting in line...

    The Trichordist ^ | June 18, 2012 | David Lowery
    Recently Emily White, an intern at NPR All Songs Considered and GM of what appears to be her college radio station, wrote a post on the NPR blog in which she acknowledged that while she had 11,000 songs in her music library, she’s only paid for 15 CDs in her life. Our intention is not to embarrass or shame her. We believe young people like Emily White who are fully engaged in the music scene are the artist’s biggest allies. We also believe–for reasons we’ll get into–that she has been been badly misinformed by the Free Culture movement. We only...
