Defending The Indefensible

vote hereSo you want to register to vote in Arizona. Their state law requires that you produce documents proving that you are a United States citizen. This is pretty simple stuff though! Simple for most of us except that the Obama Administration is taking Arizona to court AGAINST this law. Yes you heard right the United States Government under Obama is fighting against requiring proof that you are a citizen before you register to vote. I know that I keep restating that, but it just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense for the Democrats/left to fight against having ONLY American citizens vote in our elections. Sorry folks, but this position is indefensible by the left;

My Country Tis Of ME

I am not totally shocked that Mitt Romney lost.  I felt uneasy going in, but really was hopeful that folks would at least recognize that Obama’s policies were and are bad for America.  Living in Pennsylvania we Republicans never have a say in who is nominated for president.  I certainly did not like Mitt, but grew to respect him and like the ticket when he added Paul Ryan.  Obviously not everyone agreed as many conservatives stayed home and many voted for others.  Reading the news and reports since the election there seems to be plenty of blame to go around the Republican camp.  One thing that bothers me about the Republicans is how all of the crap comes out AFTER we lose.  The crap is carefully hidden.

Unelected Group of People

If you need any more information regarding the Regime that is the Obama Administration’s his latest use of third-world politics in his threat” aimed at the Supreme Court;

“I’m confident that the Supreme Court will not take what would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”

Separated At Birth – Buzzi/Ginsburg

Ruth Ann Buzzi:   Ruth Ann Buzzi is an American comedienne and actress of theatre, film, and television and is most known for her appearances on the 60/70s hit show Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In.  Before leaving New York for a career in Los Angeles as a television star, Buzzi played in several musical variety shows and television commercials, some of which won national awards including the coveted Clio Award.  Buzzi’s first national recognition on television came on The Garry Moore Show.  In the late 1960s, she was featured as a semi-regular on the sitcom That Girl as Marlo Thomas’s friend.  A versatile comedienne, she played everything from dowdy old women, to tipsy drunks, to Southern belles to flashy hookers.  Her most famous character is the dowdy spinster Gladys Ormphby, clad in drab brown with her bun hairdo covered by a visible hairnet knotted in the middle of her forehead. In most sketches, she used her lethal purse, with which she would flail away vigorously at anyone who incurred her wrath.

News Briefs – Volume XXXI – Very UnCONSTITUTIONAL

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories. This edition is all about how Obama’s unconstitutional actions WILL affect your life

Brief 1:  One option that a president has to get some of his controversial nominees appointed is to wait for Congress to recess and then is able to appoint them to a limited term.  I remember celebrating W’s recess appointment of John Bolton as U.N. ambassador.  Obama stired controversy on recent recess appointments because Congress was not actually in recess.  The Supreme Court and settled law had determined that if Congress was not in session for three or more days then they were in recess.  Obama, with the backing of his Justice Department waited ONE DAY to claim a recess and appoint his henchmen.  Fortunately we have a strong Congress who cares about maintain the delicate balance of the three branches of government and will soon fix/find a way to reverse the appointments – – Oh wait we don’t have enough Congressmen with the guts to take on Obama.

News Briefs – Volume XXVII – The Supremes

News briefs are a collection of interesting news stories.  This edition is all about SCOTUS…

If you think that the next presidential election is only about Obamacare and other Obama policies, please notice the narrow victories in the United States Supreme Court for centrist issues.  The next judge could be a crucial swing vote.

Boeing Boeing Gone

I have not had the opportunity to see the movie interpretation of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged (i.e. the closest theater is about an hour away), but it feels more and more like I am living the story.  I’ve read the novel twice since my first time when I was awakened bythe vultures depicted by Rand.   It was hard to be disgusted by a parasitic nation that sucks the life out of productive people to prolong their reign.  It is hard to watch former great companies like Jack Welch’s General Electric mooch off of Obama to gain favor for their subsidiaries while, in my mind, pretending to be a capitalist company.  Businesses have always done this, but the level of government interference seems obscene.

Parse-imony – Drug Deaths

In “Parse-imony” I break down current news stories with my pithy, running commentary…

First the headline:

DEA seizes key execution drug in Ga.

ATLANTA – The Drug Enforcement Administration confirmed Tuesday that the agency seized Georgia’s supply of a key lethal injection drug because of questions about how the stockpile was imported to the U.S. [using the term “seized” conjures up an image of Janet Reno’s automatic weapon bearing agents breaking down doors and “seizing” a young Elian Gonzalez to return him to communist Cuba]

Stats Rhats

Many years ago I was fortunate to be invited on a school trip to Gettysburg National Military Park.  That trip sparked a love affair with the city and the Civil War.  If you are from below the Mason-Dixon line you would call it the War Between the States.  A favorite book about that era is The Killer Angels which was the basis of a favorite movie, Gettysburg.

One of ending scenes of the movie was an encounter between some captured Confederate soldiers and Union soldiers after the epic Picket/Pettigrew charge.  The southerners were resting on some fencing when one of the Union officers asked the prisoners why they were fighting this war.  One of the Confederates answered that they were fighting for “Stats Rhats.’
