The land of immigrants the US has always been has been drastically changed through the multitude of programs that have made it "easier" for the new immigrants. When my grandparents came from Ukraine around 1899 they succeeded because (a) they wanted to survive, (b) they knew that hard work was necessary, (c) work was available for manual laborers, (d) they were on their own and took responsibility for themselves and (e) there was a lot more freedom of action regarding daily work and daily pay.

Although Mitt Romney took flak for his statement that he lost the election because President Obama bestowed “gifts” on key parts of the electorate, what he said is basically true.

We’re stuck in a deadly spiral where economic growth is retarded because the economy is larded with enormous and ever-increasing government spending and debt. Yet, more and more Americans want the lard.

President Obama got re-elected by promising to continue to serve it up.

Romney’s failure, and the failure of the Republican Party, is not that Obama is pulling this off, but that they can’t get their act together to explain...
