You need to take another look at your history books! The 20s, 30s, and 40s were the hay days of the Mafia. Vice was rampant. The Feds even called on Mafioso Lucky Luciano to help with corruption in the longshoremen's union to help out int he war effort during WWII.
Unfortunately, Ms. Coulter is right about pretty much any legislation affecting illegal immigration. No matter what Democrats may accept, the ACLU will have any enforcement efforts wiped out by liberal judges. That's exactly what happened with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. It included provisions that would have penalized employers for hiring illegals, but the ACLU managed to have those features gutted. The Democrats know that and will likely approve any enforcement proposals in order to get the amnesty that most of these kind of plans will include, even if they're disguised to look like something else.
I wonder how many illegal aliens will actually choose to become legal? If they do, they'll get to pay taxes, pay social security, pay medicare, , and all the other things American citizens get to pay. That should reduce their take home pay by something like 25% to 30%, at least. And now they'll get to pay $20,000 a year (new figures from the I.R.S) for Obamacare. Gosh, that sounds like a real deal to me!!!!?

Sorry, you were right before and wrong now. I supported him for the Presidential run and still believe he was the right man. I heard, repeatedly, that "Gingrich is unelectable." Well, Romney really, really was unelectable . . . and proved it. He simply did not have the guts to fight for the victory. Gingrich did and does. He's intelligent and courageous. Frankly, I fear that he's right about the way our country is headed on marriage. I believe he was just being pragmatic. I hope and pray that he and I are wrong, but I fear we're not.

Frankly, I'm fed up with the Republican leadership and, after Boehner was re-elected to the speakership this morning, I'm having some serious problems with the Republican members of the House. Does no one in the Republican party have any guts? When I told people during the primaries that I wanted Gingrich, they told me he was unelectable. Well, Mitt Romney was unelectable! Gingrich has courage and intelligence, which is far more than I've seen from anyone in the Republican leadership. It's time for things to get bloody (metaphorically speaking). Romney should have called our President a "bald face liar" during the debate moderated by Candy Crowley and he should have told Crowley to shut her mouth. Not guts. That's our problem.

When it comes to a student cussing a teacher, here's what I did at a Southern California Community College: I ordered the student out of the classroom, explained I would call campus police if he didn't leave, and failed him in the course. There were more than 60 students in that classroom. This was near the beginning of the semester, and I never had another problem in that class.
You're wrong and Roberts says it in his decision. The Court has the ability to determine when a tax becomes a penalty. In so doing, he severely curtailed Congress' ability to tax. The Democrats would almost certainly be required to increase the "penalty" tax in order to continue funding Obamacare. When that happens, anyone can claim the tax as an unconstitutional "penalty" with the support of the Chief Justice.
I agree completely! On one hand Roberts has ended the ability of Congress to mandate things like solar roofs, electric cars and eating vegetables, while, on the other, forcing the Democrats to defend a new tax. The White House has already been making the (now useless) argument that it's NOT a tax, but a penalty. The media are following suit and handling the penalty v tax issue as though it's undecided. It's not undecided: Roberts changed that. It IS a tax and the Democrats are going to have a hell of a time explaining it away before the election.
