What Murguia and Neas propose changing is the age-old principle that parents must consider the impact of their actions on their children. Their idea is to exempt from responsibility those who violate U.S. immigration laws and reward them with full taxpayer-supported healthcare benefits, far beyond the basic emergency treatment now guaranteed by law.
The time we don’t have

(Regarding article, “Obama, Medvedev making ‘progress’ on new nuclear treaty,” Nov. 15.) Working with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on a new nuclear treaty, Obama says, “We’re running out of time” on the issue of Iran agreeing to export its uranium to Russia to be refined only for Iranian nuclear power plants.
No, President Obama, we are running out of time on al Qaeda’s and the Taliban’s successful war of attrition in Afghanistan. While Obama has spent nearly a year pondering how to get it right on the war in Afghanistan, our enemies, including Iran, are draining our coffers and U.S. troops’ lives.
When President Obama finally figures out how to get it right in Afghanistan, our nation will be drained and unable to fight a nuclear-armed Iran.
With Obama as our commander in chief, the Taliban leader in Afghanistan wasn’t bragging when he said the United States may have more weapons and soldiers, but they had more time.

(Regarding article, “Holder: Death penalty to be sought for accused Sept. 11 conspirators,” Nov. 13.) Thanks to the president and the attorney general, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed gets his wish to strut before the world on the big New York courtroom stage. He didn’t even have to use the “please don’t throw me in that briar patch” ruse.
And we thought Brer Fox was dumb.
