The Latino Vote and the GOP

Email Email Print

This Nicholas Riccardi piece in the Los Angeles Times is a caution to the new GOP majority that it must quickly arrive at a comprehensive immigration policy and spend two years explaining it.

That policy ought to begin with serious steps towards border security and the completion of the fence that has been first delayed, then proposed in an unworkable “virtual” form, and now at approximately 650 miles of 2,000 along the southern border. Until the border is secured and the visa program made enforceable, the issue of what to do about the millions of illegal aliens in the country cannot be resolved because of the continued migration of hundreds of thousands each year across a porous border. 80 to 90% of the country agrees on the basics of immigration policy, but the consequences of the paralysis engendered by the extremes is first and foremost a national security threat that gets worse every month.

Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik and Augie Nietto

Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik
played the Coach House in San Juan Capistrano last night. It was a great show, featuring key tracks from his new CD Slice plus his best known songs from a long and very successful career, and made all the more so by the presence in the audience of Augie and Lynn Nietto. Augie Nietto is a pioneering entrepreneur in the fitness business, co-inventor of the Life Cycle and now the force behind Augie’s Quest, which is Nietto’s drive to further research into cures for ALS, the disease which struck Nietto five years ago.

Ondrasik and Nietto are friends, and when the singer told the businessman’s story from the stage the crowd gave Augie an ovation, applauding of course his courage, which is first among the human virtues to inspire genuine admiration. Ondrasik also played his salute to the troops, Freedom Isn’t Free, which is always a feature of his concerts, and not just the USO-organized performances he does for military. CD for the Troops IV will be out shortly, which is also Ondrasik-driven effort.

In an age when so many performers are as often known for their rehabs or their rants as for their music or their acting, John Ondrasik is a fine example of the scores of them who quietly advance many good causes even as their art entertains and even inspires.

And Augie Nietto is one of the best examples of how to live even in the face of enormous physical challenges.

“Allow Me To Introduce My New Secretary of the Department of Stopping Obamacare”

Email Email Print

As I said on Megyn Kelly’s program today, every one of the new GOP governors ought to move to join one of the anti-Obamacare lawsuits as soon as they have the authority to do so. They should also task a high ranking member of their team with doing everything in the state’s power to block the roll-out of this disaster. We will post the video of the segment here later.
