The People’s Guide to the SB1070 Ruling(30)

By Jason Sprinkle Ok, I have calmed down. I started to write yesterday after hearing the initial media reports of SB1070 being struck down. I fumed. I vented.

In Order to Stop Obama you Have to Give his Congress the Pink Slip(16)

By A.H. Furlong The President of the United States is on the campaign trail, but not for his own job, just for his ‘own’ Congress.

The World is not Mister Roger’s Neighborhood(4)

By Steven Stein The world as we know it has definitely changed under President Obama’s watch. Let’s examine whether it looks like a safer or more dangerous world and America’s role in those changes.

Save Our Language!(31)

By Wade Collins One of the things that irks me about most leftist movements is the way that they pervert the meanings of existing words, or coin new, misleading phrases in attempts to confuse people about what they believe.

Here’s why: (1) Mental health requires that [...]

Joe Legal vs. Jose Illegal(1)

Both families have 2 parents, 2 children and live in California. “Joe Legal” works in construction, has a Social Security Number, and makes $25.00 per hour with payroll taxes deducted….”Jose Illegal” also works in [...]

What You Don’t Know About Mexico(6)

By Jason Sprinkle I am an American. For the past 6 years, I have managed a business that is bi-national. At one point, I was the largest employer in the city of Puerto Penasco, Sonora. Yet ours is an American based company. And I support SB 1070. I know a little more than the average [...]

“Immigration,” Honesty, and Civility(12)
