Pass the Brexit, Please

Published on June 26, 2016 By sirrahc

“Once we step outside the moral universe of the [post-national, post-democratic] elites, there is no case whatever for Britain to surrender its self-governing democracy to Brussels.”  — the Editors of the National Review “The vote for Brexit is a vote for sovereignty and self-determination.”  — Nile Gardiner, director of The Heritage Foundation’s Margaret Thatcher Center […]

Immigrant Advantage in the Struggle for the American Dream

Published on January 10, 2016 By sirrahc

I came across a fascinating New York Times opinion piece a few weeks ago. That in itself is quite unusual, since I don’t read the Times, it being known for its liberal-progressive bias and me being known for my disdain for that sort of thing. But, something else I was reading apparently made note of […]

Joe vs. Jose: An Illustration

Published on January 15, 2014 By sirrahc

Those of us interested in such things sometimes talk about the negative consequences of allowing illegal immigration, but it isn’t always easy to articulate the problem. People need to understand how it might affect them directly. If they can understand how the system currently gives unfair advantages to the illegal immigrant over the legal resident […]

Published on October 17, 2012 By sirrahc

Immigration in the U.S. — especially illegal immigration — is the subject of many socio-cultural concerns and legal issues today. As of a couple years ago, the number of immigrants both legal and illegal in the United States hit a new record of 40 million. According to Newsmax, “[T]he number of immigrants plus their children […]

Politically Incorrect Facts about the Mexican-American War

Published on May 19, 2011 By sirrahc

The other day I posted about the Texas Revolution of 1836, giving some facts to counter the position that America’s early settlers were just a bunch of greedy, unscrupulous, white land-grabbers who “stole” their land from the Mexicans (and Native Americans). On the contrary, the Anglos had mostly been invited in by the Mexican government […]

Top 10 Things Liberals Have Taught Me about Myself (Part 1 of 4)

Published on April 27, 2011 By sirrahc

You know, sometimes you just need someone else’s perspective. Another viewpoint to explain reality to you and show you things about yourself that you never knew. Things that even your friends won’t tell you, or don’t know. Heck, they’re probably guilty of it, too, and don’t even realize it. Let me give a few examples […]

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Churches & AZ Immigration Law

In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, I examined and reacted to several sections of Jenny Hwang’s recent guest column in Christianity Today titled “Arizona’s Border Crisis“. Specifically, I focused on those issues raised and hypothetical scenarios given that could impact not only the illegal immigrants themselves but their families and the churches/organizations who […]

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Churches & AZ Immigration Law

In my last post (Part 1), I examined some of the issues brought up by Jenny Hwang in her recent Christianity Today article, “Arizona Border Crisis”. So far, I’ve been less than impressed with her research and reasoning. Let’s continue… This law should trouble conservatives because it greatly broadens the government mandate and could add […]

Church, Family, and Immigration Law (Part 1 of 3)

Published on May 26, 2010 By sirrahc
This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Churches & AZ Immigration Law

Almost everything you read these days about immigration law, especially the recently-passed Arizona legislation, has to do with what exactly does the law say, is it racist, what does “reasonable suspicion” mean, will good citizens be unfairly targeted and inconvenienced, will immigrants’ rights be abused, should law enforcement officers “waste” their time trying to identify […]

Update on Arizona Immigration Law

Published on May 2, 2010 By sirrahc

As some may already be aware, a new bill (or amendment?) was passed on Friday, April 30, that changes the recently-passed Arizona immigration law. According to the L.A. Times, Lawmakers on Thursday night changed the language to require scrutiny only of people who police stop, detain or arrest [while enforcing another law. The wording previously […]
