Illegal Aliens

Nick Russell on April 9th, 2011

On a television news broadcast out of Phoenix a few days ago, an immigration activist was complaining about the fact that illegal aliens (oh, I’m sorry, undocumented immigrants) who are being held in federal custody are called detainees. Apparently, that term has a negative connotation and is demeaning. According to her, illegal aliens should be […]

Let me ask you a question. If I were to steal your car and keep it, and if a couple of years later my kid got to be old enough to get a driver’s license, and I gave that kid your car, how would you feel about that? Would you be okay seeing my kid […]

Tuesday the American people sent a clear message to their elected officials that they are unhappy with the way things are going, and they don’t want to go down the road we have been taking. Now, it is up to those newly elected, and to those who retained their offices, to listen to that message. […]

I’ll be glad to see Tuesday come and go, if for no other reason than that we’ll finally see an end to all of the political ads on television, where every candidate tells us how terrible their opponents are, in wildly exaggerated claims, but never seem to get around to telling us what makes them […]

As most of you know, when it comes to politicians, I’m an equal opportunity kind of guy. I don’t like any of them, Republican or Democrat. You can take a pile of dog doo doo and wrap it in any kind of cover you want, but inside it’s still crap, and sooner or later (usually […]

If you turn a television on during the daytime, or watch any late night TV, you know how often viewers are bombarded with advertisement after advertisement telling them that if they have used just about any kind of prescription drug, fallen off a ladder, been in an accident, or ever had a hangnail, they can […]

Here I go again, whacking the hornets nest, as my friend Greg says. But sometimes I just can’t resist. The other day, I mentioned in my RV blog that Dish Network and the Fox Network dweebs have gotten into a pissing match over rates, the result being that we have lost the FX channel, which […]

A long time ago, I had a brother-in-law named Tom. Tom was married to a young woman named Jill. One day Tom and Jill went to the mall, and in the window of a pet shop, they saw a beautiful little Dalmatian puppy. Jill immediately fell in love with the dog, so they went inside […]

My father once told me never to discuss religion or politics, because most people cannot be objective about either issue. They are too emotionally involved. Unfortunately, I have never been very good at following directions. The problem with that is that I try to ignore the rhetoric, and take a practical view of issues. I […]

Beginning July 1, the State of Utah is cracking down on welfare fraud by reviewing the cases of illegal aliens who are receiving public assistance in the form of food stamps. Under the state’s new policy, food stamps were cut off to some 2,200 families of illegal aliens, and thousands more have had their benefits […]
