The President's Confession

The president has, in fact, issued an executive order declaring that law enforcement will not deport illegal aliens. That is, he has done precisely what he rightly states in the video that he is not allowed to do.

As I understand it, an impeachment is like an indictment followed by a trial. But if the accused has confessed, it seems there is no longer a need for a trial. Can we proceed directly to prosection?

I'm Proud to be an American

Recently, a New York City principal surprised teachers, parents and students by interrupting kindergarten rehearsal of Lee Greenwood's God Bless the U.S.A. for a graduation presentation. She unilaterally decided the song would not be included in the presentation. Though the class had been learning and practicing the song for weeks, the principal suddenly claimed she was concerned it might offend other cultures. Later, she changed her story, claiming she thought the words were not aga-appropriate.

Of course the song might offend people of other cultures! So what? The expression of such a concern is always a red herring. In truth, that principal and others like her resent the celebration of American culture. Parents of various and sundry ethnic heritages whose children are in that class have complained about her decision. They are glad to be in this country and are eager to have their children celebrate the United States of America.

As for me, I'm proud to be an American.

Actually, I'm grateful more than anything else.
