I wanna corny-dog in Cancun!


On The Situation last Friday night, Tucker Carlson passed on an immigration email making the rounds that simply knocks it out of the park. Mira!:

Enter Mexico illegally. Never mind immigration quotas, visas, international law, or any of that nonsense.

Once there, demand that the local government provide free medical care for you and your entire family.

Demand bilingual nurses and doctors.

Demand free bilingual government forms, bulletins, etc.

Keep your American identity strong. Fly Old Glory from your rooftop, or proudly display it in your front window, or on your car bumper.

Speak only English at home and in public and insist that your children do likewise.

Demand classes on American culture in the Mexican school system.

Demand a Mexican driver license. This will afford other legal rights and will go far to legitimize your unauthorized, illegal presence in Mexico.

Drive around with no liability insurance.

Insist that Mexican law enforcement teach English to all its officers.

Good luck!
Good luck is right. The Mexican authorities wouldn't put up with that kind of behavior for a second. As they shouldn't. As we shouldn't. And yet we do. In this one way, it would be nice if we were a little more like Mexico.


Calvin Coolidge on fiscal restraint

This clip is 137MB in is a speech given by President Coolidge in the Rose Garden on fiscal restraint in government. It is a fine speech...given by a rather luke-warm speaker. However, the points are as sound today as in 1924 when they were spoken. Interesting point...the Prez is ga-ga over a $7B that astounds and is incomprehensible. Today, we spend that amount on the House and Senate chambers.

I highly recommend that you download this clip and listen to it.

HAT TIP: NRO and John Derbyshire

"Scottie, raise the shields to maximum."'s a cool story from Fox News about a new defense from Israel that will protect from incoming RPG rounds.

RAISE SHIELDS! [Jonah Goldberg]

Force field technology is advancing nicely. [Note, this is a Fox News video]. Let's hope the Volcanos don't get this technology.

Nod to Steve Hayward at NLT (grumble, grumble).

VDH on Iran

Victor Davis Hanson has a new article up on National Review here. I'll post comments later...but you MUST read this. As usual, he is right on the money. Net-net = the crosshairs of our bombsites are on Iran.

If you read nothing else today, read this article.
