The unemployment rate has stayed at 5.1% only because still more people have given up looking for work, leaving the job participation rate at a 38 year low.  And what jobs are being created are predominantly being taken by “foreign born” workers – which, I would bet my bottom dollar, is a euphemism for illegal aliens willing...

NO ARMED SECURITY: THE “RIGHT DECISION”

He was then asked if he regretted that decision.  And as 10 students lay in the morgue and others...
