    I don't think so. Neither does Patrick Buchanan, who actually has a surprisingly strong piece, using evidence by Robert Putnam of "Bowling Alone" fame.

    Time to slam the door shut like in the 1920s after our first great immigrationist wave? I think so. Let the melting pot begin to work effectively.

    Since the laws changed in the mid-1960s we've been inundated.

    Here is an interesting factoid for you, since our economy has been in the tank many illegals have returned to Mexico...

    Not sure it makes all that much difference if you bowl alone or in a league.. maybe some folks bowl with their families.. bowling is not the greatest social barometer of all time. Makes me wonder if bowling has descended in popularity with the advent of so many new athletic outlets.. just because the Elks, Rotary Club and League of Woman Voters has declining populations may speak more to their relevance than to societal trends.

    Pat Buchanan is also known for being a xenophobe. You're using him as an example?

    This country needs to make a decision. Either we stop all illegals. Which means allowing police and/or social services to check citizenship and report all illegals for deportation etc. Or say we have no immigration laws and allow anyone to walk in and stay. From all continents. And they merely report that they are here and become citizens, pay taxes, get licenses / insurance etc. But, people "cutting the line" while others wait to immigrate legally is what I have no tolerance for.

    When you go to the well too often. The well runs dry. And we're pretty much there.
