The folks at MediaMatters decided to take after a couple of my opinions.  I can only speculate as to why.   Perhaps it’s the confluence of my anti-gas tax argument which ties any increase to the scrutiny and defunding of illegals in Iowa Public schools.   This opinion has really irritated the political class in Iowa which like everywhere else loves to trade votes for OPM.  Also irritated is the Obamnesty class which has been milking compliant Iowans for untold millions since the early 80’s.  And it’s annoying  educrats which have been doing the same.   This is the link to their blog.

I usually take stuff like this apart line by line,  but in this case it isn’t necessary.   They did me the honor of accurately quoting me extensively.  They think they are tattling on me.   They think my opinions are so out of the mainstream that merely reporting them is an indictment.  They are wrong.  Most Iowans agree with me.  Most Americans for that matter.

I offer a few additional points to ponder though.

1.        The title of their piece, “IA radio host claims equal education for children is ‘a scam’-- undocumented students should be barred from public school’.     That isn’t accurate.  My goal isn’t to necessarily remove them from Iowa Public Schools.    I only said that the taxpayers have no obligation to pay for them.  (For the record I’d settle for a fee structure for non-citizens.)

2.       I wrote a short blog on my overview just a few months ago.  It is still relevant.

3.       And just to be a little snarky,  Dr. Thomas Woods reminds us that the 14th Amendment was never legally ratified in the first place.

4.       Finally, I can’t improve on Chief Justice Warren Burger’s opinion on Plyler.  “In an effort to become an omnipotent problem solver, the court distorts our constitutional function…illegal aliens have NO right whatever to be here, and the state may reasonably, and constitutionally, elect not to provide them with government service at the expense of those who are lawfully in the state.”


It’s interesting that a left-wing organization like MediaMatters took the time to evaluate the strength of my arguments.  Even though they made a muck of it,  I thank them for the courtesy of a try.   The political class which actually represents Iowa citizens and taxpayers won’t.
