Thomas Sowell: Paul Ryan´s argument
for immigration reform ´utter nonsense´

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:sparky86, 7/16/2013 2:55:22 PM

On Tuesday’s broadcast of Laura Ingraham’s radio show, economist and Intellectuals and Race author Thomas Sowell blasted Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan argument for immigration reform. During a June appearance on Ingraham’s show, Ryan had said the U.S. might face labor shortages unless immigration policy is overhauled. “That’s incredible,” Sowell said. “I mean —first of all to an economist, it is incredible to speak about shortages without talking about prices , in this case wages…You know there, there have been so many predictions of shortages of so many occupations and the shortages don’t materialize. And why not?

Comments:
Paul Ryan´s intellectual prowess takes a hit here.

When Dr. Sowell calls you out, that´s pretty big.

Paul Ryan was a guy we really wanted to like, but alas he too is a phony.

Let´s think this through...Sowell suggests that low supply is correctable with price, i.e. higher wages. It makes one wonder about the "wages" of 100% dependency on government. One might conclude welfare pays better than work at the entry/low skill end of the spectrum.

Paul Ryan is part of another "gang" that wants to destroy America. He is working with other "gang" members in the House of Unrepresentatives.

Agree that Ryan should be finished at the national level for joining Rubio in this
fiasco of an amnesty bill to destroy America as we know it as well as what
remains of the Republican party.

What is with these guys?

Another lousy veep choice by the GOP.

We need to abolish the office of VP, or else have the president-elect pick a veep after the election, with veep an older reliable person who is ineligible to run for president after that. Confirmation of the veep pick to be made by Congress.

Reagan should have picked anyone else but Bush, and so forth.
We keep getting stuck with these losers.

Paul Ryan attempted to debate Mark Levin and it was a fiasco.
Ryan went from one tired talking point to another..never answered Levin´s questions, and sounded like a pathetic democrat. Levin demolished him.
I am finished with Ryan.

Let´s have a new party based on two things: 1- All candidates must be over 40. 2- All candidates must have had a freakin´ job before they were elected (lawyering don´t count.) Rand Paul was a Dentist...anyway... Paul Ryan and Rubio and all these Bush-lite public servant wannabes make me spit fire!
Of course Sowell is right! I´m almost glad this jerk, Ryan, went down with the ticket (not really)

I thought Ryan´s plan to eliminate the deficit over 20 years was weak but was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt because so many people talked about his brilliance. Now he jumps on board this lame excuse for immigration reform. It´s frustrating to put your trust in someone who seems conservative, then runs for the tall grass and tries to mislead you about it.

Thanks, Dr. Sowell for calling Ryan out on this issue.

#9, I would agree all presidential candidates need to be over 50, and thus the
veep would need to be also...

All CongressHo´s should be at least 40, that´s for both Senators and Reps.

We are no longer a nation of about 3 million population with a tiny budget and
almost no army or navy and living in the 18th century, with horse and buggy,
no phones, no electricity, etc etc

A major nation needs to have leaders who are prepared to deal with major issues
in a more mature way, with a population over 300 million and being a superpower.

Out with the clowns...
No JFK, no Klintoon, no O-Bomber...
No algwhore-zero running for prez at age 39.

Our nation needs to get real.
It´s almost too late.

There is no shortage of NYC trash collectors. Consider their salary. That makes Dr. Sowell´s point.

Also consider another thread posted yesterday (http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=744060) that indicates other options for farmers. Capitalism 101: supply and demand - with price as the moderator.

WHY IS IT? That, our so-called republican leaders ALWAYS lack backbone to truly represent the American People. zero, reid, palousi, democRATS and fellow travelers come up with an Un-American bill and instead of telling the American People why it is crap, beltway republicans want to water it down a little.

Paul Ryan was never a conservative anyway. He is, and has voted, very pro-labor because he has to get elected in a heavy weighted labor state. Why they claimed he was conservative in 2012 is beyond me.
I agree his budget balancing bill was not all that great. We need a much quicker fix for our deficit, but at least he addressed Social Security and Medicare.
Paul Ryan is also off my list for 2016.

On “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday night, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer criticized President Barack Obama for his foreign policy but downplayed the effects of Obama’s interview with Zach Galifianakis in a Funny or Die video on Russian President Vladimir Putin of Obama. “I think it’s a kind of arrogance,” Krauthammer said. “He thinks he has a good foreign policy.

A failure to properly supervise a Department of Veteran’s Affairs employee led him to use VA resources for sexting, misuse official time, and inappropriately spend thousands of dollars in travel funds, according to a recent report. In a redacted report — first highlighted by the Military Times — the Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Inspector General reveals a plethora of cringe-worthy offenses perpetrated by an unnamed VA employee. Despite the employee’s bad behavior, his supervisors allowed him to continue his unauthorized activities and even promoted him.

In 2011, the Department of Justice raided Gibson Guitar facilities in Memphis and Nashville, alleging a violation of the so-called Lacey Act, a law that bans the importation of certain kinds of wildlife, plants and wood. At the time of the raid, Gibson Guitars CEO Henry Juszkiewicz told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show that the feds confiscated tonewood imported from India for the guitar Gibson manufacturers which would result in a cost of $2 to $3 million for his company. At a great expense in legal fees and time, Juszkiewicz fought the federal government tooth and nail.

The Friday Lunch Buffet ended on Jan. 1.

The bungled rollout of President Obama’s signature health care law might have kept the president away from Gettysburg, but it has not kept him off the links or away from the fundraising circuit. Since the launch of the HealthCare.gov on October 1, Obama has gone golfing five times and attended ten fundraisers — with five more scheduled for the beginning of this week — while Obamacare’s favorability has hit all time lows.

Left-leaning Daily Beat columnist Kirsten Powers, who recently revealed how she lost her health coverage under Obamacare, slammed the Obama administration’s efforts to deal with the metastasizing Affordable Care Act Tuesday night. On Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel, the “All-Star Panel” weighed in on the administration’s responses to the disastrous Obamacare rollout.

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
