The Conservative UAW Guy

You know they have to be out there, you just wonder how many and why they are not heard from. Keep an eye on this blog, it is great to get perspective from someone on the “inside.” Has some comments from other conservative union bloggers.

Keep up the fight The Conservative UAW Guy, glad to know you are on the team.

Border War?

Right Makes Right! has a thoughtful post regarding illegal immigration and the danger to the GOP if we allow the issue to be cast as a racial issue, which it most certainly is not. It is important that this be correctly portrayed as a legal and national security issue.

As to the point that we need to “radically change the process for legal immigration” I have to disagree. It seems to me that there is a process, whether some like it or not, and there is no need to change it to accommodate those who are ignoring it anyway.

I fully agree with the need to strictly enforce our existing law and suggest a “zero tolerance” policy to gain control of the situation. If the promise of being deported with no opportunity to ever legally enter the United States were real, the deterrent threat to those who wish to gain citizenship would be effective. Those who are intent on breaking the law will not be deterred of course, and are declaring by their action the necessity to keep them out of the country.

Thanks for the post Right Makes Right!.

Federal Court Allows New Schiavo Appeal

This is only for show unless they quickly order sustenance for Terri Schiavo. These Judges know that there is huge public outcry against the way they have handled this and it is not hard to picture a last minute “effort” to demonstrate that they were trying to do the right thing. I hope I am wrong but this is not consistent with their earlier rulings.


Fix social security now, or the left will mess it up later.

Thinking Right has sounded the alarm. We need to fix social security before those on the left have a chance to mess it up worse. What else falls into this “urgent” category? Judges and a re-limiting of their power. War on terrorism, impossible to imagine a democrat of today having the courage and vision to do what George Bush has done and is doing. What of limiting the size of government? While important, I cannot say it has the same sense of immediacy. Other ideas?

Will the CU regents take the path of least resistance?

Human nature tends to seek the path of least resistance. Based on the “revelatory” evidence from Howard Kurtz it is hard to imagine any significant change coming soon to Boulder.

Good post at avoiding the Tar baby.

Africa is getting lots of attention

Found it interesting that the good folks at Dilley Blog had this story regarding Africa the same day Dennis Prager talked of the expansion of Christianity in the same region. I have not found his reference yet, but Prager said more Christians attended church this Easter Sunday in Africa than in all of Europe. Also that more Christians in China attended church than in any individual European country. I found this very interesting.

Supreme Court told to ignore global issues

Absolutely amazing that the Supreme Court not only needs to be told to look to U.S. law and the Constitution but that a Justice would appear to take issue with that.

The ever vigilent Center for Security Policy had this from The Washington Times.

Mexican gang to target United States citizens in the United States!

This is what a situation looks like just before it gets completely out of control. When this does flair up, it will not be without precedent.

During the mid-1910’s Mexican “bandits” led by Pancho Villa staged low-grade warfare against the United States and United States citizens. Eventually President Wilson order the Punitive Expedition led by General Pershing to capture Villa and establish control of the border. Villa was never captured and now it appears that control of the border was only temporary and hostilities have perhaps never ceased.

Drudge had this from The Washington Times. For a brief reference on this conflict you can try In Pursuit of Pancho Villa.

Denver teachers clear path for strike

More union mischief at the expense of those they pretend to be concerned about. Why are we allowing unions in public sector jobs? The solution seems simple to me, de-certify!
