More on the Problem of Illegal Immigration

Sen. Durbin (D. Illinois) may bring an illegal to Pres. Trump's address to Congress. If he does so, I hope Immigration and Customs Enforcement will have agents waiting outside to arrest her. Investigation reveals doctors have been providing fake medical opinions to help people gain citizenship. The IRS discovered that 1 million Americans had their Social Security numbers stolen by illegals. Since Starbucks declared that it plans to hire 10,000 refugees, its brand perception collapsed by 2/3. Finally, I'm pleased to note that illegals are fleeing the US to Canada.

Pres. Trump Targets the EPA

I am pleased to note that Pres. Trump's budget will cut the EPA by 24%. In light of the agency's employees' tendency to use its budget to purchase fitness memberships, this is long overdue. The president will also cancel an Obama regime-era rule that will raise the cost of raising royalties charged to energy companies for operating on federal land. Now that energy prices are creeping up again, it will prove a boost for the US's shale industry. Finally, more than 300 scientists called on the president to withdraw the US from the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Pres. Trump Will Raise Defense Spending

The $54 billion increase will be paid for through cuts elsewhere. As much as I applaud the idea, the fact is that the Defense Dept. wastes $25 billion/year. What the Pentagon needs is not just more money, but also some serious accountants to prune its budget.

It's Economical

Fast-food chain Wendy's is planning to install self-order kiosks at about 1,000 locations across the country by the end of 2017 to cut labor costs....
By raising the minimum wage and welfare benefits, liberals are only spurring technological development that will replace unskilled labor. The good thing about self-order kiosks is that their regular maintenance is cheaper than monthly wage and health care benefits, their time off is probably much shorter than human workers, and they don't file sexual harassment law suits.
