Mocking treasured liberal slogans is as easy as shooting (bicycle-riding) fish in a barrel.

They helpfully print them on T-shirts and bumper stickers, for one thing—although over the years, in this as in all material matters, quality has taken a hit. At least the notion of Pentagon bake sales exhibited a sense of absurdist, curlicued whimsy. Those rosary-battered ovaries, though? Thud.

Five million is the widely reported estimate of the number of illegal aliens who will benefit from President Obama’s executive amnesty policy announced on November 20. These 5 million illegal aliens will be eligible for temporary legal status and work authorization if Congress does not act to prevent the administration from implementing its plan.

Five million is a big number that will have an enormous impact on our labor markets, social safety net programs, and vital social institutions.
