Reading the most recent National Review, I note a weird statement from Mark Krikorian that’s striking me as a little (or maybe very) wrongheaded:
In arguing this way, Krikorian gives far too much ground away to “compassionate conservatives” and welfare-loving liberals who point out that the state really does help the poor. People with very little education or few skills can earn enough to support their families, and treating immigrants’ desire for social services as inevitable doesn’t address the point that part of why they might be so dependent on these services is that they’re in this country illegally (and finding work is difficult) or they’re priced out of the market by the minimum wage.
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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
