You may have noticed the ads are temporarily gone.

It's not because we think advertising is evil, but we know it does not belong here. The problem is we have been asking our readers to help us. And some of you have (thank you) - but we survive on donations. If everyone reading this right now gave $3, our fundraiser would be done within an hour (the price of a coffee). We’re a tiny organization with costs of a top website: servers, staff and programs. We like to think that The Daily Rant is something special. If you find The Daily Rant is useful to you, take one minute to help keep it online. Click here to donate. Thank you.

The Fear of Man

As we left, she and I discussed the appallingly short memory span of many today. She and I discussed how the gentleman in line with us had blamed President George W. Bush for Americans dying in combat, claiming, “Bush led those boys over there to die.” But, like many, he conveniently forgot the history of lives lost under Democrat presidents. A friend escaped Castro’s Cuba […]

A First Hand View of the “Immigration Crisis” by George Rodriguez

The following was forwarded to me. It is a firsthand account of what is taking place along the border. *********************** I am a 5th generation Texan of Mexican descent, who was born and raised in the Border region. I also worked on the 1986 Immigration Act in the Reagan Administration, and therefore I feel somewhat qualified to speak about the current immigration crisis and recommend some solutions. The Border region has always been lawless, and my family and I have lived with the impact of illegal immigration and border crime […]
