Should We Amend The 14th Amendment To End ‘Anchor Baby’ Citizenship? The debate continues to rage in political circles, media and the Internet over how to control the influx of illegal aliens migrating across U.S. borders. Recently there has been a focus on the “Citizenship Clause” of the U.S. Constitution’s 14th Amendment. As state governments […]

A Derogatory Idea By Benjamin Tomkins I love children. They are born innocent of the crimes of their parents and wholly defenseless against the evils of the world. As such, I consider it our social duty to care for and protect them. Realistically I understand that we simply can’t let everyone in, but if we really […]

We Can’t Allow ‘Anchor Babies’ To Sink The Boat By David H. Landon Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC) recently called for a revisiting of the issue of “birthright citizenship.” Somehow, through a series of laws passed by Congress and never challenged on their questionable constitutionality, the United States currently grants citizenship to the all babies who […]

Not Wanton Any I started seeing this amazing guy, but had to initiate most of the making out. He soon dumped me, saying he has little experience and was freaking out. (He’s 40, and has only had three girlfriends.) We got back together, but he still wasn’t initiating, and six months in, still hadn’t had […]

More Conservative Socialism By Mark Luedtke I’m sick of hearing about the so–called mosque at Ground Zero. From the way conservatives have whined about it, you would think the U.S. was surrendering to Osama bin Laden. It only took a couple of seconds of research to find out all the alarmism is a sham. First […]

The Ground Zero Mosque: Think By Bob Maistros As I like to say, this one isn’t even hard. In PR, we used to talk about a “smell test” for questionable actions. I like to apply an equally simple “Dude-what-were-you-thinking?” test to stupid ideas. Like “Dudes, what were you thinking” when your school system proposed to […]

We Are The Redcoats Now The U.S. government today is far more oppressive than King George III back in 1776. King George held zero political prisoners. He allowed the colonial press to operate freely. He allowed the colonists free elections. He imposed virtually no restrictions on trade. He imposed no restrictions on travel. American colonists […]

Your Right To Know Doesn’t Supersede Our Right To Exist There was sheer idiocy on display last week as a Web site known as WikiLeaks released  100 megabytes totaling some 90,000 pages of secret tactical American military reports regarding the U.S. war effort in Afghanistan. These documents were released by WikiLeaks in conjunction with newspapers […]
