A nation is an organic thing.
Hey, nothing grows to the sky. There will be a successor movement. Right now it's nascent.
I regard many of the neoconservatives as personal friends, but that's not stopped them from behaving with extraordinary viciousness towards those of us who raised the immigration issue.
I suppose the White House thinks it's doing what Big Business wants, but it will lead to vastly increased taxes, because all these guest workers are to be allowed to bring their children.
I think Bush has capitulated on affirmative action and government spending. Apart from that, he's OK, I guess. About the same as Howard Dean.

Why can't teachers end up owning schools, the way waiters can open their own restaurants?
