An opinion piece to ponder…..

I was a little surprised to see such a frank piece published in a mainstream publication—the Richmond Times Dispatch. I don’t have time today to analyze every bit of it, but wanted to post it before it’s too old (something that happens too often when I can’t get to my queue of articles worth posting). […]

A grazing dispute in Africa lands us more refugees

That grazing dispute was 20 years ago, so now we have one more growing population of African “refugees” —-this one in Cincinnati.   The Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati brought the first Fulani to Ohio we are told in this Cincinnati.com article.  Today there are 1200. ‘Fulani develop strength in unity‘ [but, I thought it was supposed […]

Texas: another guilty plea by immigrant in food stamp scam

It’s the same old story, but interesting to note that ICE is involved so the guy must have some immigration ‘problems’ too: From MMD Newswire: BROWNSVILLE, Texas (MMD Newswire) August 26, 2011 – – The owner of a local supermarket pleaded guilty on Wednesday to defrauding the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as […]

Obama administration wants to “continue the conversation” on our “broken immigration system”

….blah, blah, blah! Big problem is we have very different ideas on what exactly is broken. This is an article I’ve had kicking around for over a week.  Nothing surprising here, but want to post it so as to not lose the link.  Earlier this month the Obama Administration had a chit-chat meeting in the […]
