The Baffling EB-5 Immigration Controversy

In most cases, I can understand why immigration is a controversial issue. Take amnesty, for instance. Opponents make reasonable points about the downside of rewarding folks who cut in line while supporters make reasonable points about deportation being harsh and impractical.

Four Simple Steps to Earn a Spot in the Bureaucrat Hall of Fame: Downloading Porn, Obstruction of Justice, Overseas Shopping Trips, and Not Showing Up on the Job

I wrote back in June that I was relieved about a bureaucrat from the National Weather Service getting elected to the Bureaucrat Hall of Fame.

There’s a famous quote attributed to George Washington. Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action. But it’s apparently an urban legend. There’s no evidence Washington wrote or spoke […]
