Greece Plans to Build Controversial Border Wall

The Greek government says it plans to build a fence along part of its border with Turkey to try to stop illegal immigrants from crossing into the country.

Greek authorities say more than 100,000 illegal immigrants arrived in the country last year. Most crossed the Evros River that separates Greece and Turkey, and the European Union from the outside world.

The Greek government says those numbers can no longer be tolerated and has announced plans to construct an eight-mile long fence along the most vulnerable part of the border.

Southern Sudan Chooses: Unity or Secession?

Sunday's referendum in southern Sudan gives voters a choice between staying united with the rest of Sudan or becoming an independent country.

The poll was agreed to in the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement that ended Sudan's 21-year north-south civil war.

Voters entering polling booths will see two symbols. One shows two hands clasped together, symbolizing unity. The other shows the single palm of a hand, symbolizing separation.

Most analysts predict southerners will choose independence. The new country would be Africa's first since Eritrea won independence in 1993.

Anti-gun Advocates In Senate Seek Rules Changes

Make no mistake about it: Procedure is power.

The reason we are not stuck with bans on semi-autos, gun shows and ammunition is because the U.S. Senate is structured so that whatever party is in the minority still retains procedural power to protect the rights of the citizenry against the "tyranny of the majority."

But on January 5, 2011, at the beginning of the new Congress, Senate Democrats are hatching a plan to decimate long-standing Senate rules in order to remove those protections.

Why the sky isn’t falling as New Year begins

"...Washington’s firearms laws do work. That’s why firearms owners are resistant to changing them merely to accommodate the anti-gun soup du jour. Let’s see if we can make it through the year without adopting new restrictions..."
