W. R. P. could work in Cincinnati 

I called the US Democrats a bunch of xenophobes earlier this year, but if Dave Pollard is right, the Republicans have something to answer as well.
   While I agree that controls are needed—especially because of the unfairness on those naturalized Americans who were born elsewhere, and who waited in line the proper way— is a disgusting tack, no matter whom takes it.
   During the General Election here in , I questioned our present Foreign Minister-outside-Cabinet, , for his racist views, and for his lack of faith in New Zealand . Many of the same comments apply Stateside.
   So it was interesting to note today that Mr Winston Raymond Peters attacked the Leader of the Opposition over comments that he labelled as .
   Not so funny when it’s your own he’s targeting, is it?
   Mind you, I think the Foreign Minister-outside-Cabinet has a warped view of reality after his incident with my fellow TV presenter Barry Soper.
   And according to Barry, Mr Peters’ latest position is a direct flip-flop of his own stance six years ago.
   The usual, fear-mongering anti-immigrant arguments, neatly summarized by Dave in his blog post, are used in the . And they sound vaguely like Mr Peters’ own playbook. Hitler had a slightly more extreme one for the Jews.

Both parties in the States use immigration issues for political gain, and many Republicans are upset at President Bush himself for his rather "liberal" view on immigration. Politics aside, there is some reason to discuss illegal immigration in a rational manner. I live in Southern California, and the real issue isn't racism, but that the system can't handle such a large population in terms of health care and education without there being stronger documentation of who's here legally and who can afford what.  
Good point, Neil: there are certainly legitimate arguments over immigration such as the very one you raise.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
