Conservative on Target! 11/17/12

I don’t have all of my thoughts on the following put together yet. I do know we need to do conservatism better. I also know we need to be proactively reaching out to other races and cultures. But, no matter what complicated proceedings our politicians come up with, we all need to read, speak and vote in English as an official language!

The Republican Party Needs A Reset On Immigration: Finally, I add this exhortation to my GOP brethren: If you see your problem with immigrants as merely one of marketing, then you will not succeed. The nativist wing of the party is not just politically inconvenient, it is morally and economically wrong. The point is not to capitulate to political necessity; the point is to have the right policy. The right policy is a growing economy, non-burdensome immigration laws, a welfare system which promotes work, not dependency, and a culture of assimilation, not isolation.



Lance Armstrong Cheated to Win. Why is that Wrong?
   To put it a little differently: The rules pushed by the USADA and the International Cycling Union (UCI) are so arbitrary and widely flouted that it shouldn’t be a big deal that Lance, like most of his comptetitors, broke the rules. You don’t have to have a doctorate in pharmacology to know Lance cheated, but why is it wrong?…
   …in the end, Lance refused to admit what was as plain as the saddle sore on your butt after a 115-mile ride: that he cheated to win, and nobody did it better. No man is a hero to his former personal assistant, but Lance Armstrong was an asshole until the very end.

Here’s another answer to this (stupid?) Question:

There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
