COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Charles Kenny: worst, most anti-American immigration editorial ever? (development economist, Businessweek, World Bank, apartheid) - 07/13/11

I've read hundreds of immigration editorials and articles full of bad, anti-American ideas and even a couple of articles advocating for hiring illegal aliens, but an editorial by Charles Kenny (see the link) reaches a new low ("How to Be a Patriot: Hire an Illegal Immigrant/Laws against illegal immigration make little economic or moral sense.

Obama strategist David Axelrod owns "astroturfing" company (ASK Public Strategies) - 09/11/08

Via [1] comes this article from Business Week about Barack Obama chief strategist David Axelrod: From the same River North address, Axelrod operates a second business, ASK Public Strategies, that discreetly plots strategy and advertising campaigns for corporate clients to tilt public opinion their way... On behalf of ComEd and Comcast, the firm helped set up front organizations that were listed as sponsors of public-issue ads. Industry insiders call such practices "Astroturfing," a reference to manufacturing grassroots support... Oddly enough, some months ago I noted a very strange blog...

Moira Herbst/Business Week: local enforcement of immigration laws is "ugly" - 07/28/08

Moira Herbst of Business Week - a magazine that's promoted profiting from illegal activity - offers "The Immigration Fight Gets Ugly" and, yes, it's terrible. She only offers one example of that "ugly", and it's not a good example since it's just an allegation: Atlantic Scaffolding, which employs nearly 400 at a Pascagoula (Miss.)-based Chevron (CVX) refinery, has let go at least eight workers this month. The company says some workers were laid off for economic reasons, and others may have been terminated for just cause. But at least three of the workers have filed complaints with the Equal...

Will Dick Durbin block immigration "reform" (aka a massive amnesty)? - 03/27/07

Could Senator Dick Durbin - an illegal immigration supporting hack who refered to himself and illegal aliens as "we" as in "we can win" - block immigration "reform" by trying to push for business-unfriendly H-1B related worker protections? From this: ...Durbin is considering the tougher standards for companies that want to bring temporary foreign workers into the country under the H-1B visa program. According to a summary of Durbin's draft proposal, before they could use such visas, companies would have to give a written pledge, or "attestation," that they made a good-faith effort to hire...

Embracing corruption (Brian Grow, Business Week) - 07/10/05

Business Week has a long article entitled "Embracing Illegals" (businessweek . com/magazine/content/05_29/b3943001_mz001.htm), all about the major U.S. corporations that are profiting off illegal immigration. Is it an expose? Well, no. In fact it reads more like BW promoting a wonderful new market, and describing how those corporations are basically thumbing their noses at what Americans want.

"Mi Casa Es Su Casa? Get Real" - 12/30/04

BusinessWeek: [...Describes an anti-illegal immigration group in Utah...] GOP activists such as Sears spell trouble for George W. Bush. As the President woos Hispanic voters with Cabinet appointments, political appeals, and immigrant-friendly policies, a rebellion is bubbling up through his party's ranks. The reason: The influx of illegals is hitting such solidly red states as Arizona and Utah particularly hard. "The problem seems to get more attention during times of fiscal distress for the states," says Jeffrey S. Passel, who studies immigration at the Urban Institute in Washington. Look...
