Guest post: Forced conformity of thought breeds malice

Editors note:  The other day when I reminded readers about my rules on comments, I invited those of you who had more than a few words to say to send me a guest post for my consideration.  I have an entire category that has gone unused lately entitled ‘Comments worth noting/guest posts’ here. As things […]

More corrections needed: Asylum seeker vs. Refugee

Let me say that I am glad to see that new readers arrive here daily, but long time readers, please accept my apologies for repeating information you already know. Commenter ‘Kansasdudess‘ said this yesterday in a comment to my post on about Twin Falls, Idaho, here. “id like to point out that in every country […]

Comment worth noting is an example of what you can do for your state and country

From time to time, I post what I call “comments worth noting” that have been sent to me or in this case published on social media. This (below) is a facebook entry from Peggy Traeger Tierney in Minnesota. Readers ask me all the time, what can I do?  Well, this is a prime example. Help […]

Minnesota Somalis: You're old and we are taking over

This week Judy sent me an interesting facebook post. I’ve decided not to name the author in order to spare her further aggravation. Normally I wouldn’t post on a social media conversation except this one rings a bell.  I’ve heard it before. In fact in earlier years in the life of this blog, I heard […]

Comment worth noting: Many blind 'conservatives' in Minnesota

Editor: Occasionally we post guest comments/opinion pieces from readers.  This, below, is a comment a resident of Minnesota posted at this story last week: Headline: 25 reasons to end Somali refugee resettlement now Before you read Bob Carrillo’s comment, you might want to visit Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch yesterday about Republicans and Dems (pandering!) in the […]

Minnesotan challenges MN CAIR director to public debate

For new readers: We often give readers an opportunity to post guest opinions here at RRW. This is one from a longtime Minnesota resident, Robert Carrillo, who attended the event last Saturday at the St. Cloud Public Library where CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) attempted to equate the internment of Japanese in the US […]

Guest column: Unlikely that today’s refugees will be like yesterday’s self-reliant immigrants to America

Reader Bob Enos sent us his thoughts after reading Ms. Wolfe’s paean (in Foreign Policy) to grandpa (in which the author takes the opportunity to, like all good Leftists, use hot button words to describe RRW).  See my post here with a link to “journalist” Lauren Wolfe’s opposition to the idea of “assimilation.”  (You may […]

Comment worth noting from St. Cloud, MN

Editor: From time to time I post comments more prominently that I think are important but would get little notice otherwise. This is a comment I received about my post two days ago, here. Update October 19th: Don’t miss all the breaking news on St. Cloud today, here. From St. Cloud Guy: I have lived […]

Guest column: Feds shifting costs to states for refugee resettlement

Editor: From time to time we post guest commentary. This is from Joanne Bregman. As we refocus our efforts at the state and local level, because we can’t count on Washington, this is an effective argument for you to make on the state level. This is about States’ rights! (emphasis below is mine) Federal Cost […]
