  1. It was demonstrated again Thursday. The Supreme Court of the United States does not think, reason or act in a sealed environment. It does not gasp for intellectual breath in a vacuum. It ponders the consequences of its rulings. It will, for lack of a better term, twist its legal logic ever so slightly to avoid social, political and economic calamity. Those who insist on judgment full-speed ahead, rule of law enforced word for word regardless of whatever turmoil strict construction might bring, equivocation be damned you wimps, are not ...
  2. It is difficult to get a grip on things 8,500 years ago. When the Ancient One, also known as Kennewick Man, was wandering the shores of a great river of the West, from our Euro-perspective there as yet was no history.

I have seen a lot of those. Sometimes I admire their integrity, despite the utter futility of their cause. Sometimes they are just big egos spending other people’s money.
  4. The flow of immigrant workers to the United States is subject to unbreakable rules of supply and demand. First, there is demand, evidenced by a worldwide shortage of workers, specifically agricultural workers in the United States, generally filled by immigrants. There are two systems to meet the demand. One is the traditional let-it-happen system, which produces a workforce that is predominantly illegal. Second is a system of legal immigration, which in the case of agricultural requires temporary guest worker visas under the category known as H-2A.
  5. Frankly, I don’t care if Rachel Dolezal is white, using that adjective for racial identification. I don’t care that she is not black. I don’t care that she was a person of northern European descent serving as president of the Spokane chapter of the NAACP.
