UK POLITICIAN FARAGE SPARKS DEBATE OVER MULTICULTURALISM AND GROWING ISIS THREAT
BEN STEIN: Amen. Nation -- meaning people of the same blood. We can be one blood in the sense of law, tradition, culture, dignity. I don't want people coming here who don't believe in the dignity of human beings. It's essential to put God back in our lives and the God that believes all men should respect other men.
CHARLES PAYNE: I believe the more we have pushed out god the more the foundations of our country have crumbled. We as a people -- we have shunned the idea of marriage, children, religious services, I think we are going to pay a heavy price of that.
CHARLIE GASPARINO: It's beyond religion -- an identifying ideal for a country. We went from a melting pot, where we were all coming into one -- to this... crackpot... multiculturalism. When you celebrate your differences you lead to Bosnia, Herzegovina and all the bad stuff that happened.
ADAM LASHINSKY: In our country you can believe whatever you like and that's one of our values. But you cannot behave in a racist or sexist way; we have put this into the law. I disagree with Charlie, I still think we are a melting pot country.
NEW DEBATE OVER TAXPAYER-FUNDED EDUCATION FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS
CHARLES PAYNE: I think you teach kids how to speak English early on -- you don't change the curriculum of the course. With the illegal immigrants it's not right we take money from native American born school children to spend on kids who have come here illegally. It incentivizes kids to keep sending people there.
BEN STEIN: It's a question of proportion. It's most important that these kids speak English. It's a small amount of money to spend on a greater good.
DAGEN MCDOWELL: How long does it drag on... does it turn into a recurring bilingual education program? You have to educate kids who are illegal in this country but the central issue is to just stop illegal immigration and it becomes less of a financial burden on society.
ADAM LASHINSKY: Totally appropriate that they do the best job they can to educate the children in their school district period. Ben, I'm agreeing with you!
CHARLIE GASPARINO: This is absurd, it's the first time we have had immigrants in the country so we have to do something- we don't have to spend a lot more money. Bilingual education by the way is a scam.
CONGRESS APPROVES $88M IN FUNDS FOR FIGHT AGAINST EBOLA
CHARLES PAYNE: We could have taken money out of ObamaCare!
DAGEN MCDOWELL: This money is going to be a billion, since some is coming from Defense Department and some is being reallocated overseas to Africa.
BEN STEIN: I question the constitutionality -- where does the president have the right to fight epidemics in foreign countries? Yes, Democrats and Republicans have done this.
ADAM LASHINSKY: We are doing this out of enlightened self-interest and to alleviate people who are dying in Africa.
CHARLIE GASPARINO: They have changed the rules so many times for ObamaCare, why can't they just change the laws for this or use the ObamaCare money.
CHARLES PAYNE: IBM
ADAM LASHINSKY: VANGUARD
BEN STEIN: AT&T
