That buy your green card pitch by Kushner’s sister in China renews controversy over visas for the rich

If you had $300 during the Civil War you could avoid that first Draft by just paying the dough and walking away. No money, you could go to jail or possibly become one of the 620,000 Americans killed on the battlefields.

When it comes to citizenship, the rich don’t need to climb that wall or swim that Rio Grande, now they just put up money, $500,000 or more to be exact, to invest in some project in the U.S. and agree that somehow that will create ten new jobs.

Some 85% of all these “investment citizens” are from China. The deal is called EB-5 Visa, and not only can you become an American, but so can the wife and children – all for the same price.

Her first big accomplishment was winning the New Jersey Blueberry Princess pageant at age 16.

Four years later she won the World Champion Blueberry Packing competition. She could pack 300 crates a day. Although she also excelled as a student and cheerleader at St. Joseph’s High, her heart was with the farm:

“Everything I learned about life and business started on that farm.”

Liberal FOX boycott big failure, now it’s crush Lou Dobbs over aliens and birthers

There has been a movement by some folks to boycott Lou Dobbs, because he has given airtime to supporters and opponents of the theory that President Obama was not born in Hawaii. Such boycotts rarely are effective, because most viewers are not one issue.

However, CNN is generally liberal and too often PC. You would think that Fox News would be a target of overly excited liberals, not CNN. Perhaps, there has been a movement to squash Fox. If so, it has been a failure.
