If it's a tsunami you're afraid of, what happened in the Indian Ocean last month is probably not what you should be worrying about. The tsunami Americans need to fear is the man-made wave of globalization that has helped gut the American work force by exporting its jobs overseas in part through the cute little... Read More
After some 30 years or so, the Washington Post finally sent a reporter to the movies to discover the astounding news that Hollywood doesn't like corporations. The occasion for this revelation is the re-make of the 1962 thriller The Manchurian Candidate, a film I have never cared for and the new version of which I... Read More
The good news, as reported across front pages last week, is that some 250,000 new jobs were created in the American economy in the last month. The bad news, at least for those who hold the jobs or would like to, is that they may soon go overseas. The June issue of American Demographics explains... Read More
If you ever get into an argument about immigration, sooner or later (probably sooner) somebody will majestically inform you, "But immigrants take jobs that Americans won't do. Without immigrants, lettuce would cost 10 dollars a head." Sometimes the lettuce will cost 20 dollars a head, but the point—and absence of facts—is still the same: Immigration... Read More

With the state of California at the edge of financial—and perhaps political—chaos, the truth about the real meaning of uncontrolled immigration is finally seeping into the state's major newspapers. Last week in the Los Angeles Times Magazine, Fred Dickey unleashed a 5,000-word feature on the impact of illegal immigration on the state's legal—and lower-income—workers. In... Read More
Not the least of the problems that mass immigration inflicts on the Americans whose nation the immigrants are colonizing is how it affects the creaking Social Security system. The Open Borders lobby holds that immigration will save the system - a claim peddled by the Wall Street Journal and various professional Open Borders activists. But,... Read More
Back in 1993, when the propaganda campaign for passage of theNorth American Free Trade Agreement was swinging, there were three main reasons offered as to why NAFTA should pass. It would help reduce illegal immigration from Mexico; it would help modernize the Mexican economy, and it would help Americans by removing trade barriers. Not one... Read More
"Free trade" and its partner, "globalization," are the happy thoughts of the day, with few in either party of any ideological persuasion expressing disagreement. But there are reasons to disagree with the direction in which the words point. Last week an article in the New York Times reminded us of some of them. So dependent... Read More
If you like the illegal aliens now pouring across the borders of Arizona and points west to work as cheap labor for agribusiness, you'll love the most recent measure concocted by the Republicrats to import even more foreign workers to take high-tech jobs from Americans. The migrants coming in under the so-called H-1B program are... Read More
“Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast ordained strength,” prayed David to the Lord. When Gregory Kingsley came along, the Lord seems to have been taking a lunch break.
