The essential error of the Obama presidency is an unfounded belief that greater government power—in our pocketbooks, in our private lives—will make America more prosperous and free. President Obama’s faith in concentrated power was on full display in tonight’s State of the Union address.
Working families feel squeezed by higher health care costs and tuition bills. Those fortunate enough to hold steady jobs haven’t seen a raise in years. They worry about their children’s future and their country’s.
The president seems to have only one answer for them: enlarge the size and scope of the federal government. To help middle-class Americans, the president demands more than $300 billion of tax hikes and a new round of stimulus spending. To rein in education costs, the president creates a federal education entitlement, the type of which led to skyrocketing tuition in the first place. To fix our health care system, the president touts the same law that has caused prices to rise and stripped families of access to their doctors. To make the financial system more stable, the president threatens to veto reforms to Dodd-Frank, his law that made banks bigger than ever. And to protect Americans’ privacy, he offers yet another report instead of reining in his own spies.
Higher federal taxes, more federal spending, and greater federal control of our lives haven’t worked over the past six years. Our country is beginning to turn the corner not because of government but in spite of it. Instead of faith in Washington, let’s put faith in Americans to determine their own lives. Let’s give liberty a chance. ~ Justin Amash, Jan. 20, 2015
This is TOO GOOD to pass up. Sorry this is only a Re-Blog – but MSNBC is starting to show its colors big time. It is a tool for Liberals.
Immigration Laws? Do we need them?
Now those are good questions.
Far be it for me to venture into paleontology or anthropology beyond a mildly curious stroll through the dusty bookshelves. But I can’t help but observe that scholarly papers built upon scholarly papers built upon ad infinitum all began as theory and somewhere along the line the supposition of fact became an accepted statement of fact and what do we have now? Ans.: Arguments based upon extrapolated interpretation of supposed fact and somebody somewhere is making a good wage at stirring up crap.
Be mindful that I classify myself from the the middle of the social/political spectrum – leaning toward the right wing – where “other” scholarly papers from the psychology world of academia have seen fit to conclude that Liberals have superior intellect over their Conservative counterparts. What a surprise that is (!) coming from the academic community. You know what they say,” Those that can DO – Those that can’t teach. ”
**This is the point where we go for the Ad Nauseum jokes.
Arguing whether or not we need immigration reform is almost like arguing the Theory of Evolution at the Vatican. Somehow over the past 150 years what used to be considered forward thinking – liberal ideals – have done a 180° turn! Some of the strongest and thickest skulls today claim to be “progressive” and “liberal” and they are stuck in a mind-set that is not flexible enough to agree on a restaurant menu. Come On People! If you don’t like the brand of toilet paper use something else! You can’t force everyone to use the same TP!! But Human Rights are not on the same platform as toilet paper or bubble gum.
Some people in this world will go without and they won’t miss it. Believe me.
It’s getting crowded in the USA and the natives are concerned.
You see………….I just have not seen the evidence of a hominid that suddenly jumped up and started to develop technology so fast that every step of mammalian biological evolution disappears somewhere between 45,000 years before Schmidlap to 300,000 years before Schmidlap plus or minus a few decimal points. Does anybody realize how big a blackboard that would be? I mean seriously – why would a perfectly content turtle snacking flies out of the swampy mist air with its tongue decide it was time to go climb a tree? Does he/she see something delicious hanging out there? Come on!! Those eyeballs are behind this clever clear rocket-boy shield thingy that allows the turtle to see underwater – and you can imagine just how clean and clear that water was without Mr. Tidy Bowl there to row around in it.
We are equal human beings. That does not mean that we are all exactly entitled to the same belongings. Some are stronger – physically and mentally. Some are male – some are female. Human Rights are one thing. You cannot legislate total equality, however. It does not work in Nature and it sure won’t work as a system of government.
There is order in the universe. You can’t change everything for the sake of change and expect things to get better. Let me wrap this up by including a quote by arguably the richest and most confused individual that ever talked out of both sides of his mouth – Bill Gates.

“Racism is simply an ugly form of collectivism, the mindset that views humans strictly as members of groups rather than individuals. Racists believe that all individuals who share superficial physical characteristics are alike: as collectivists, racists think only in terms of groups. By encouraging Americans to adopt a group mentality, the advocates of so-called ‘diversity’ actually perpetuate racism. Their obsession with racial group identity is inherently racist. The true antidote to racism is liberty. Liberty means having a limited, constitutional government devoted to the protection of individual rights rather than group claims. Liberty means free-market capitalism, which rewards individual achievement and competence, not skin color, gender, or ethnicity” — Ron Paul.
I cannot imagine how these controversies over the POTUS have gone on for as long as they have without somebody realizing that the government is surely controlling these issues in the media and not working in the good will of the common American citizen. Examples:
“By all standards, our president exhibits all of the criteria to be removed from office—proven dishonesty in his re-election regarding votes, Benghazi, fake birth certificate, actions that are unconstitutional and communist in nature, taking away our rights and our freedoms, and more. What else needs said? Why is this man still in office?” Source: BeforeItsNews
Back and Forth. Hin und Zurück. With all that has been reported in relation to this man’s past, as well as his multiple identities, there is ‘motive’ for this identification photo to be labeled as a mere hoax. However, with the vast number of people who hate Obama, there is just as much cause, if not more, for this image to indeed be fake.
And now we have word that he never went to Columbia University after all. Who do we believe?
