Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation.

This year has been a great one for my friends who are royal headline watchers. Who doesn’t love to hear about the arrival of a healthy baby? Many of the stories were similar to what we would have heard 20 years ago, but one in particular was both modern and interesting.

A simple story told with economy, "Wadjda" is a notable example of old-school, humanistic filmmaking. It's also genuinely groundbreaking: the first feature shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and the first film directed by a Saudi woman.

The result of this is that every economist in Washington is a Keynesian economist. Keynesian economists allow politicians to spend a lot of money.
The question here is, “What to do about Syria?” Well, here we go again. Do we ever learn anything? Remember in the ’60s America didn’t like Batista (in Cuba), so we armed the revolutionaries there and they kicked Batista out. Castro became the next Cuban leader.
