Brandon Crocker is full of it, a crock. There is no job Americans won’t do. But there are plenty of jobs Americans won’t do for slave wages and no benefits.
Since the founding of the United States there has always been a faction in this country that has tried to make America more like Europe. But the simple fact is that the U.S. is the anti-Europe. Always has been, always will be.
All we need to do is look at Europe’s colossal failure with guest worker programs, and do the opposite. That’s the American way.
This whole guest worker charade is simply a way for companies to avoid paying a fair wage for labor, so that management can pocket more profits. In a true free market economy, an employer facing a labor shortage has two options: 1) he can raise wages to attract workers, or 2) he can innovate. Importing low wage foreigners depresses wages and stifles innovation. And that is profoundly un-American.p>The American people won’t stand for anything short of enforcing the law and sealing the border. It’s that simple. br> — Scott Collier br> Edinburg, Texas /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
