I marvel that certain preachers — the same preachers who are in love with the illegal immigration that encourages people to live in a criminal subculture and be exploited by rapists, coyotes, the Chamber of Commerce, everyone — constantly rail against “the American Dream”.

The irony would be rich enough if I left it at that (since obviously those millions of illegals aren’t coming here to chase the Mexican Dream or the Syrian Dream). But it’s far richer still when you read this story of legal Chinese immigrants, and the very real American Dream they could find, pursue and achieve only here.

Happy Independence Day. Some of your pastors would throw God’s blessings back in his face, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord in enormous gratitude for this unique and wonderful place which He allows us to call home.
