Re: What Moves the Man

We’ve probably used up this topic for a while, but I’ve gotten some even more interesting explanations than Peter for the president’s mulish suport for amnesty and open immigration:

“Doesn’t Mexican oil have a lot to do with our blind eye towards the border?”

“Could it be that there have been undocumented laborers at the Crawford ranch?”

“Isn’t ‘The Three Amigos’ March 23, 2005 prosperity agreement, signed at Baylor U. behind our Presidents long term plan to harmonize us into an entity to counter the EU?”

And my favorite:

Fox has pictures of Bush doing something he shouldn’t be doing. There is no other possible explanation. Except that maybe he’s actually a plant a la ‘The Boys from Brazil’ that the Mexican government initiated 50 years ago.”

And yet the Senate Democrats, led by Chuck Schumer, have perverted the advice and consent clause of the Constitution into a ... Read More

People Are Losing Their Minds Over Starbucks

We can all easily imagine circumstances in which a manager of a coffee shop or restaurant might properly call the police to ask them to remove loiterers. These are places of business. There’s nothing wrong in principle with calling the cops on non-customers who are taking up space. And there’s nothing wrong ... Read More

The Dark Side of the Starbucks Stand-Down

By now the story is all over America. Earlier this month, two black men entered a Starbucks store in Philadelphia. They were apparently waiting for a friend before ordering — the kind of thing people do every day — and one of the men asked to use the restroom. A Starbucks employee refused, saying the restroom ...
