I am a very proud Citizen of the United States. That took place in early 2008 after a seven year legal journey. As you can imagine, I have some views on immigration which you will find in these pages from time to time.
I was born in London, England and have been American in my attitudes for as long as I can remember. The Constitution should be regarded as a sacred document. Unfortunately as each year passes it seems to be less important. We have a President who told the American People BEFORE he was elected that the Constitution was a "flawed document". That would have been electoral suicide just a few short years ago. I remember when we were trying to help Iraq write it's constitution I said on the radio "we should give them ours! After all, we stopped using it years ago".
I started work as a journalist in 1976 when at the tender age of 16 I got a job on the Jerusalem Post. Recently I have been guest hosting talk radio around the country. Prior to that, you could have heard The Simon Conway Radio Experience.
I am a radio talk show host whose conservative outlook was forged in my native UK, where I experienced the considerable downsides of European-style socialism. I have a unique insight into health care and all the other trappings of a socialist society because I've already lived through where we are headed.
This is such a cool commercial, but would totally distract me in traffic.
Today fast food workers in 100 cities across the country - including at least three in Iowa - are going on strike.
They are demanding $15 an hour which if these burger, chicken and pizza joints were forced to pay, most would not survive.
I've never been a big fan of the minimum wage for reasons I have explained on the air, but it is funny that some of the same people who think this strike is a good idea, also tell us we have to legalize the nation's illegals otherwise the cost of a head of lettuce will soar!
The reality is however, Americans will happily pick lettuce if the market rate for wages was there. In other words if you can't get away with paying $2 an hour to illegals and you need to hire Americans, then the rate for the job will be determined by how many people you are able to employ.
We live in a world where within five years, Amazon, UPS and apparently some pizza places, will be delivering your packages and food by drone. If the SEIU doesn't think fast food will find a way to automate many of the current jobs, then they must have attended one too many of the President's Happy Hours for Obamacare!
