h/t Claire: The MSM appears to be enjoying the police bashing angle of this news story by playing up the porn on police computers bit and labeling certain individuals activists for discovering it. I don’t know that a former State Senator qualifies as an activist. Anyway, compare the first version’s lede...

A bit rushed today … so let’s see – the NY Times fixed a poll while a Rasmussen one seems more accurate. Not much news there. That and more available via Memeorandum. The Left is still getting off on the Justice Department nonsense that isn’t exactly captivating the...

Unfortunately, Oliver Willis must have few friends, given his answers to these questions about the Iraq War from Qand O.

Q: let’s dispense with silly arguments about whether we should’ve gone into Iraq in the first place. Shoulda, woulda, coulda. We are there. So what do we do now?

Right from the good ol’ USA.

The place that isn’t really fighting a war on terror.

Nah, just a war against non-Presidential contenders without resumes. Edwards brings to mind the image of a weak-kneed Ken doll that made it out of the factory without a spine. The Left should put him...

I love libraries. But they sure have changed. The best thing about not being hard wired? Most of this isn’t really going on out here in the Riehl world right now.

Senator Russ "Carebear" Feingold is weeping over the collapse of the Democrats at DailyKos. That would be the collapse a lib...

We’ll see. But that may be the case.

I’m moving and said so long for a bit here. Maintaining the blog isn’t going to be my first priority in settling in. But access in the old house didn’t go down when it was set to. When that will happen, who knows? But tomorrow late afternoon at the latest is...

From who else? The worst President in the history of America tries another desperate attempt to make himself look good by capitalizing on Bush’s problems.

Another Perspective On Immigration Reform

May 20, 2007

While the ongoing immigration debate may well expose great fissures within our society – gaps between Left, Right, or otherwise, what it most exposes are the fractures in our Federal Government that are going to require far more than an acceptable immigration package to mend, provided there remains the ability and...

Republicans have a middle ground on immigration they can make work for them with a majority of Americans, including moderate and conservative Hispanics, the Democrats don’t. Of course, that won’t prevent Republicans from allowing themselves to be painted into a corner as anti-immigration, as they lack the vision, courage and, so...

Here’s a complaint about the immigration deal from a Mexican that makes a lot of sense. So, we’re punishing those that have been playing by the rules? How many of them will stop doing that and cross with this plan being disucssed?

At the U.S. Consulate in Monterrey, which hands out more...
