Presenting the Quill Pen Ten:
Chris Adamo: Bush on Immigration: Repackaging the Trojan Horse
Among the tiny handful of Americans who still clung to the illusion that President Bush might want to truly address and
correct the illegal immigration crisis, it only took the first moments of his May 15 speech to dispel all hope. Though conceding,
seemingly for the first time, that the invasion from Mexico is indeed a problem, the President immediately fell back into
the standard diatribe that has underscored Washington's indifference to the American people on this matter...
Kevin Roeten: The Deficit Attached to Abortion
You've heard multiple complaints about the national debt lately. But what are the answers? Do you really KNOW where your
tax dollars are going? Be prepared to ‘go postal' if you read any further...
Kaye Grogan: Speak English . . . or else!
Okay it's official–I hope! It has taken 200 plus years for English to become America's official language. Maybe
we missed something here. Did another boat come in behind the Mayflower with people speaking in unknown tongues?...
Justin Darr: Let's Treat Taxes Like Immigration.
Remember back to what the immigration issue was about when it began to concern Conservatives. It had nothing to do with
racism, guest worker programs, fences along the border, or questions of amnesty. It was about the United States government
refusing to enforce the law...
Doug Hagin: A More Sensitive, Leftist Censored world!
Recently one of my favorite thinkers, Dennis Prager, wrote about how Leftists love to censor anything they disapprove
of. He used several examples of Leftists censoring photos to remove cigarettes or other things they deem unworthy or offensive...
Joe Murray: The Democratic Delusion
"Every nation has to either be with us, or against us. Those who harbor terrorists, or who finance them, are going to
pay a price." In the past couple of years since the United States preemptively declared war on a nation that did not attack
us, this is the type of rhetoric our weary populace has become accustomed to. The indefinite declarations of war and the never-ending
threats of global policing have become a staple of a new foreign policy known as of the Bush Doctrine...
Lee P. Butler: Building A Wall To Amnesty
Representative F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. said, "Regardless of what the president says, what he is proposing is amnesty."
Sensenbrenner was reacting to President Bush's address to the nation and was disappointed by the proposal passed in the Senate
that designated the building of 370 miles of fence that would 'wall off' sections of the American border with Mexico and it
represents the mantra coming from many Conservatives on this issue...
Jan Larson: Liberals are Economically Ignorant
The third in a potentially never-ending "liberals are" generalization series focuses on how liberals are economically
Kenneth Michael White: Necessity Does Not Trump Every Law
Now that even CIA director-nominee Michael Hayden has indicated that a debate about President Bush's eavesdropping program
is not unwarranted, pardon the pun, let's have that debate by looking at principles...
Nancy Salvato: Why Should We Tolerate Guest Workers?
I like President George "W" Bush; always have. This is because I believe him to be forthright and honest. Admittedly,
I've privately questioned his support of policies now and then (my husband always reminds me not to jump to conclusions because
we are not always privy to all the information), and I do wish he had more influence over congressional spending, but all
in all, in my estimation he has been a fantastic leader. However, with news this past week about English becoming our "national"
language, securing the Mexican-U.S. border and implementing a guest worker program, I became admittedly more and more perplexed
about the administration's reasoning behind being so lenient with "Illegals" currently eking out a living within the United
