Giving America Away

On the heels of the nine robed justices decision to over ride the sovereignty of my state, I was compelled to write a scathing article full of four letter expletives but discovered that E.W. Jackson recently said it much better than I ever could:

A few years ago the Obama regime filed a lawsuit against my state for the audacity of actually upholding federal law in terms of immigration. That lawsuit was not only a violation of my states sovereignty, but also wasn’t in keeping with federal immigration laws as they are currently written. And now, the nine robed elitists on the SC, decided again that AZ was incapable of governing within it’s borders as they threw out Arizonans desire to have proof of citizenship before casting a ballot, preferring instead to uphold the federal requirement of simply checking a box claiming that you are a citizen, which is a very weak standard. Yesterday however, Marco Rubio proposed an amendment to the immigration bill which would raise that standard nationwide by requiring proof in the federally written motor voter law, but that’s provided the immigration bill passes, which is uncertain at best. Considering that the immigration bill calls for amnesty now, and border security later, I hope like hell it doesn’t pass. It’s 1986 all over again where Congress promises to secure the border in favor of immediate amnesty and we all know how that turned out. This AZ election decision and the current immigration bill obviously pleases the open borders crowd and the Democrats who are always in pursuit of a new block of constituents to give our treasury to, in return for votes, but these two decisions are harmful to the country overall, as they have the potential to create absolute chaos in the border states. Thousands of immigrants will flock across the border with amnesty just around the corner, and then subsequently vote for the politician that promises them the most, and why wouldn’t they? If we are so stupid to allow that to happen, why wouldn’t someone take advantage of it? This is not only outrageous, it is a violation of state sovereignty, a violation of common sense, and an offense to every intelligent American. E.W. Jackson eloquently said – “keep the federal government out of my state, out of my healthcare, out of our schools, and out of our lives”. Which leads me to quote the great Smokey Robinson – “I second that emotion”!!!

    Since I mentioned it in my response in a previous post–this is what we need in this country–people with a solid view and commitment. This is the country that not only have built things like the Hoover Dam and the Panama Canal which RINO McCain was subjected to scrutiny of birthright (Natural Born Citizen and all) to run for President. Somehow, we cannot build a secure border of some 2,700+ miles that was promised and paid for in 1986. With tens of millions of Americans out of work–this “shovel ready” construction job would be a boon.

    Nope. We have the SCOTUS stripping away States rights in favor of the government (Federal) plantation. Hell, our Congress will not even mandate e-verify. Nevertheless, in NC, our congress has decided that electric/hybrid cars need to be taxed because they use less fuel. Try to cut the money to government, at any levels, and get smacked like a whack-a-mole.

    It is time we hit the “reset” button on all levels of government.

    A lot of present members of Congress could learn something from E.W. Jackson.

      WOW

      “Guillory claimed entitlement programs like welfare and food stamps were never designed to “lift black Americans out of poverty,” but rather to control them.

      Further, the welfare programs haven’t even helped blacks at all as they are still “as poor as they’ve ever been,” he argued.

      “But most importantly, it is the idea that the individual must be free to pursue his or her own happiness, free from Government dependence, and free from Government control. Because to be truly free, is to be reliant on no one, other than the author of our destiny,” Guillory continued, pointing to God. “These are the ideas are at the core of Republican party… My brothers and sisters of the American community, please join me in abandoning the Government plantation and the party of disappointment.”

      “So that we may all echo of one Republican leader who famously said, ‘Free at last, free at last. Thank God almighty, we are free at last,” he concluded.”

    Even some well known and respected economists are beginning to realize the mess our give-away polices have created.

    “Be sure your seatbelt is fastened, because nothing has really come to rest. We have entered the New Abnormal, a period in which every market assumption must be questioned and the wise investor is prepared to be surprised.”

    ……………………………………

    What liquidity injections have done, Roubini and Bremmer argue, is just boost leverage and risk-taking in financial markets.

    “It may be too soon to say that many risky assets have reached bubble levels and that leverage and risk-taking in financial markets is becoming excessive, but the reality is that credit and equity bubbles are likely to form in the next two years owing to ongoing loose U.S. monetary policy.”

    Of course, it’s not just us. The socialist/collectivist model is imploding worldwide.

      Of course, it’s not just us. The socialist/collectivist model is imploding worldwide

      It is indeed, and rather than learn from that, we seem hell bent in trying to catch up with them. Have you heard that quite a few congressional aides and other government workers are now considering leaving their positions because of Obamacare? The negative consequences of Obamacare are going to be huge, even a lot of the unions are coming out against it.

      • Amazona June 19, 2013 / 9:01 am

        The socialist/collectivist model has imploded every time it has been put into place.

        This is why I ask Leftists to explain their political philosophy. I realized a long time ago that few if any have the slightest idea of what the socialist/collectivist model even IS, much less why they support it. Like the Canadian Observer, they do not support the model, but the issues that the model dangles like bait to get their votes.

        As for the underling ideology, or the unbroken history of failure? Not a clue, and furthermore they couldn’t care less. All they care about is short-term feel-good warm fuzzy “OUTCOME”. Long-term economic-misery reduced-liberty outcome? Not so much. They don’t even think about that. History of failure? Too complicated, and demanding of analysis and objective thought. Much easier to have a laundry list of “outcomes” to focus on.

      • Retired Spook June 19, 2013 / 10:18 am

        Much easier to have a laundry list of “outcomes” to focus on.

        This virtually HAS to be a result of the Left’s stranglehold of our education system for the last 3 or 4 decades. Even education itself has been run under the guise of “outcome-based” goals for the last 20 or 30 years. Maybe the question we should be asking EVERYONE with whom we discuss politics is, “what have you learned from your education, either formal or informal, about governing systems — what works and what doesn’t?” Younger people in particular should be asked this question every chance we get.

      • Cluster June 19, 2013 / 10:43 am

        Outcome based focused people are definitely a result of the “equal outcome” based focused educational system and the policies of progressives and Democrats. Hand meet glove. Not only should we ask everyone what they have learned about governing systems, we should also ask them what they have learned about economics, budgeting, familial and financial planning, strategizing, critical thinking, problem solving, etc.

        Our kids are grossly undereducated.

      • Retired Spook June 19, 2013 / 10:55 am

        Our kids are grossly undereducated.

        The question is, can those in their 20’s, 30′ and even 40’s be re-educated? And I’m not talking about “re-education camps”. Those are a staple of the Left. I think back to the video of the FBI agent who went undercover in the Weather Underground back in the early 70’s who reiterated the plan of the WU that anyone who couldn’t be re-educated would have to be eliminated — possibly as many as 25 million Americans. That’s who THEY are — not who WE are. And yet, if our Republic is to survive with any semblance to what the Founders designed, at least 25 million young Americans need to be made aware of where we are headed unless we reverse course.

      • Amazona June 19, 2013 / 8:30 pm

        Not to pick on CO, but he seems to think that his focus on outcomes is quite rational and proper. He seemed genuinely startled at the idea that anyone would have such a different concept of how to base one’s political decisions.

        He’s a bright guy, but he also seems to have bought into the Leftist rhetoric that if someone doesn’t agree with the Leftist, infinitely expanding, increasingly powerful Central Authority concept of the Left that means the person objects to solving the specific problem the action is supposed to address.

        It’s that either/or dichotomy that the Left has developed and sold so effectively—if you don’ t think the federal government should ignore the Constitution to provide homes for the homeless, that means you think they should be left on the streets to freeze and starve. The hate-driven, like mitche et al, prefer the second view of what they so foolishly think are “conservatives” but the sincere like CO are just taken aback by the very idea.

        Really? You mean you want to help the homeless, too, but your approach is governed by an objective rule of law, so the solutions must be compliant with that law? What an amazing concept!!

        It will take us a long time to overcome the hate-driven lies spread by the Left to create dislike and suspicion of the Right. And we will never do it by letting ourselves be lured into emotion-based dialogues about “issues”, because this is by definition divisive and doomed to create only more distance between people who, if they could only get away from those “issues”, would probably find common ground in a belief in smaller government.

        The problem we have is in shifting dialogue away from “issues” and “outcomes” to process, ideology, and understanding of what the Constitution says and why.

      • Cluster June 19, 2013 / 8:41 pm

        The problem we have is in shifting dialogue away from “issues” and “outcomes” to process, ideology, and understanding of what the Constitution says and why.

        But that’s a quite a leap and without a bridge to get there, it will never happen. This is why I proposed the challenge the other day – how do we get there? In my opinion, we need to educate people on how focusing on the process and governing more in line with the constitution will resolve those “issues”. So in some respect, our initial conversations do need to be somewhat issue and outcome focused.

      • tiredoflibbs June 19, 2013 / 9:30 pm

        “It’s that either/or dichotomy that the Left has developed and sold so effectively—if you don’ t think the federal government should ignore the Constitution to provide homes for the homeless, that means you think they should be left on the streets to freeze and starve.”

        The proggies spew and readily, mindlessly regurgitate the rhetoric. If anyone wants to adhere to the Constitution, then he/she wants to deprive women the right to vote or go back to the Jim Crow days or worse slavery!

        The proggies did that with their “war on women” rhetoric, their “Republicans want dirty air, dirty water”, “throw grandma from the cliff”, on and on and they say we are divisive. What’s worse, they all parrot the same things, the same way – they don’t even try to hide it.

        Pathetic, yet typical for the proggy drones.

        Give us one example of a small government progressive. Just one person of the progressive persuasion who has advocated cutting the size and scope of the federal government, give more authority to states, curtail entitlement programs, and enhance individual liberties in terms of religious and economic freedoms. Just one.

        Barry’s got nothing to lose. He is not running for reelection, and he thinks the Left has got the whole demonization/smearing thing down pat so, with their voter fraud efforts, they can win no matter who else runs, no matter what he does.

        He has been given free rein by the cretins who voted for him and the even stupider cretins who refused to vote and let him win. They are as responsible as any Dem for this mess and I will never forget it or forgive them.

        Depends on what you mean by garden variety Catholics. Catholics who attend Mass weekly – and are thus very likely to actually adhere to Church teaching – voted in a large majority of Romney. Catholics who are uninstructed in their faith, like Pelosi and Biden, tended to vote in a large majority for Obama.

        The plain fact of the matter is that voting for Obama, for a Catholic, amounts in and of itself to a sin because it is consent to intrinsic evil in Obama’s pro-abortion extremism. That many Catholics don’t realize this is a sad commentary on us – but, we’re working and educating, so we’ll see how things go in the future.

      For Obama, it is a trivial thing – that tired, worn out, old Catholicism, don’t you know? Holding to your identity, as a people, is wrong…well, its wrong unless your identity is foreign…then it is a must-do. But those Catholics? The sooner they just become like everyone else, the better Obama believes it will be.

    • Amazona June 20, 2013 / 5:37 pm

      To the Left, all religion is divisive, because the Left demands loyalty only to the State. Religion and the family are alternate authorities to the State and therefore must be diminished until they can be openly attacked.

  7. seniorwoman June 20, 2013 / 5:15 am

    I went to a Christian College for my undergrad degree. We had hundreds of students from other countries. Of course that was back in the day when the USA wasn’t a divided country.

    Since I actually lived history, I remember being in Boston when you couldn’t swing a cat in an Irish pub or you would hit someone donating to the IRA. Same in NYC and DC. I bet the children and grandchildren of these IRA benefactors voted for Obama twice.

    Many in Ireland do not like Obama. They view him with a great deal of suspicion. There is a tenuous peace in N. Ireland. They didn’t need an already divisive President to further divide them.

    This was not a good trip for Obama. Putin spanked him good on Syria. And Obama lost his mojo when speaking to the German people. Maybe the Pres will do better on his 100 million dollar trip to Africa.

        Ditto for Romney’s acceptance speech. I have a friend who was next in line to be a delegate and he said his buddy, who did get to go, was seated in the front row at the end of the stage where he could see the teleprompter, and it started to scroll wildly and then went blank, and Romney never missed a beat and gave a powerful speech.
