re: Will Obama grant de facto amnesty to 5 million people? - texashorn
The invading hordes are not going to assimilate. They are not interested in learning English. I'm sick of this "they don't get welfare" crap. They get welfare. Many have American citizen children who get welfare galore. I'm sick of hearing "the crops are going to rot in the fields without ille...

re: States Rights and Freedom of Religion - texashorn
TerryDawg03, The Bill of Rights did indeed originally apply only to the federal government. That changed when courts in the aftermath of the Fourteenth Amendment used the process of incorporation to apply the Bill of Rights to the states, based on the "state" language of the Fourteenth Amendme...

[quote]SMU didn't destroy the conference. It is just politically easier to go after the school without a state in the name. [/quote] The Governor of Texas (a major SMU supporter) personally ordered the slush-fund payments to continue after SMU's first probation, I think that came in 1983. I wo...

[quote]Again I agree that is just for record keeping and in no way was used for or against me.[/quote] It might not be used against you in the here-and-now, but this kind of stuff has been working against those in the majority for about 40 years now. Too many nameless minorities rejected? Disp...

So, wfeliciana, tell me, in your holier-than-thou wisdom, with all these "discrimination" laws and "protections," why aren't there hordes of minorities (specifically blacks) showing up on Corporate America's doorstep, looking for a job? They would love to hire them....

re: University of Wisconsin calls for distribution of higher grades for minorities - texashorn
It makes all the difference in the world. If someone hires someone through the good-ole-boy system, then any shortcomings that may arise from employing someone with lesser talents can squarely be placed on the employer's shoulders, and can be remedied by firing said individual. Affirmative act...

[quote]I'm sorry I'm a little bit hesitant in believing minorities will have a totally different grading scale than whites, as this piece insinuates. Skepticism is a good thing, no?[/quote] You need to brush up on the term "disparate impact." If enough minorities fail a test, then the test its...

re: Lynn officials: Illegal immigrant children are stressing city services - texashorn
[quote]These kids should not be allowed to enroll in our schools.[/quote] I agree with this, but it would not be easy. The "right" for illegals to attend public schools stems from a Supreme Court decision in the early 80s (Plyler v. Doe) that had its roots in Tyler, Texas. The local superin...

re: White House requests $3.7 billion in emergency border control funds - texashorn
It is true that by law, the U.S. has to process these kids from ES, Guat., Hon, etc. and cannot just turn them back around, as they can those from Mexico and Canada (because of a shared border). I think Health and Human Services, by that same law, is charged with taking care of them until said pr...

I think that recent events have clearly shown that if it were up to liberals, and if we could time-travel back before the Bill of Rights, that there would be absolutely zero freedom of religion in this country.

Even though the Longhorns were 10-point favorites, Texas probably should have lost the 1969 Game of the Century vs. Arkansas. Texas had six turnovers that game, and pulled the game out of the fire with a 44-yard, 4th-and-3 pass... from the same team that had popularized the Wishbone. And after...
