Enforcing Our Laws: A Unifying Issue

77% Oppose Giving Illegal Aliens Driver's License

The hot topic of the Presidential Primaries these days has been reaction to Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer's plan to give driver's licenses to illegal aliens. The Washington Times has this story today, and a poll that shows on this issue, Republicans and Democrats both agree: Gov. Spitzer's plan is a bad one.

"Voters oppose driver's licenses for illegal aliens by a nearly five-to-one margin, a new Fox 5/Washington Times/Rasmussen Reports poll finds. Licenses fared poorly across party lines, including near-blanket opposition among self-identified Republicans, at 88 percent. Among independents and Democrats, it was still overwhelmingly unpopular, drawing 75 percent and 68 percent opposition, respectively."

Newspaper Circulation Fading

I've expressed my opinion about the Dallas Morning News on this blog previously, and wanted to share this link I came across today about the shrinking circulation of the Nation's newspapers. Almost all of the top twenty-five newspapers in the country are bleeding circulation, and only the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the San Diego Union-Tribune had a bigger plunge in weekly circulation in 2007 than the DMN, which was down 7.68%, from 404,652 to 373,586.

The People Have Spoken, Their Representatives are Responding

Utah Sen. Bill Hickman: "We're developing two different groups in society - those that have to obey the law and those that don't. Society can't function very well that way."

Here's an article about the rise in State legislation aimed at enforcing this Nation's immigration laws.

Mr. Ingram: Bring Your Projects to Farmers Branch!


Read this article about the experience one developer had working with the City of Dallas. It would be unbelievable, if it weren't so believable.

Think it's not important to have a City Council, City Manager, and City Staff all on the same page, with the same goals, moving in the same direction? Try telling that to Mr, Ingram, and then ask him if he's ever building another project in the city of Dallas ever again.

Mr. Ingram, I think you'd find the city of Farmers Branch far easier to deal with, with departments that are aligned and cohesive, and staff that provide honest, timely answers. We'd welcome you.
