Ronald Reagan and his take on immigration amnesty

Immigration quotas as unlawful as slavery

By Dave Leach – A debate about slavery in 1850 between two Congressmen explains how the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution outlawed slavery, and is violated by quotas on how many immigrants are allowed to come legally.

Hitler’s Undocumented Economist Solution

There is a classic scene from the movie “Downfall”, about Hitler’s last days in an underground bunker, that has been pirated to add different English subtitles to, usually with very funny results.
