Birth certificate: Obama has one of the best political strategy teams in recent history. He did not release his birth certificate because Trump scared him or anyone forced him. There is an underlying reason that behooves the President to release that piece of paper at this time. Trump better stop patting himself on the back and so should any of the "birthers." Honestly they are about to get the Obama boot up their butts.
Natural Born Citizen-
enough already with stupidity. We have serious problems in this country
and it is time that people look to some serious answers instead of
playing ridiculous ignorant games.
Obama College records/Law school transcripts/passport visas: sorry but
who cares. The man has been President since 2009 and we already know
what he thinks and how he operates. We knew who his friends were along
time before he got elected. We know who he chooses as advisors and his
leftist radical agenda for our country and especially his inadequacy in
foreign policy. That the majority of the American populace did not care
to actually pay attention to these issues when he was running the first
time, says more about the lack of seriousness of the US electorate than
the lack of transparency on behalf of the Presidential team.
Budget Battle: Quite frankly both parties suck.
The Ryan budget is draconian and the President's budget is devoid of
reality and the detriment of the deficit. Standard and Poor's threat
should be enough that both parties learn the word compromise. The
majority of the country while they want to take care of the deficit also
believes that the government should be there as a safety net. The irony
of both budgets is that while entitlements for the people are slashed
perks to the Congress and their cash cows and supporters are barely
touched. Why is it that corporations like GE paid no tax last year, but
those of us who are privately successful are the targets of the
President? Meanwhile watch this video with Alan Simpson and Erskine Boles, both of whom chaired the Commission on Fiscal Responsibility, about what needs to be done.
Libya: WTF, that is all.
Syria: WTF again- I guess the "responsibility to protect doctrine" does not apply to friends of Iran or Iran itself for that matter, with the Obama administration.
On another note, even before this recent slaughter, Syria was one of
the most repressive regimes in the world. How they are unchallenged,
especially by the US, for a seat on UNHRC only shows how the US should
not even be on that committee. Belonging and paying for the UN is a
totally different matter, another reality devoid of any sense what so
ever. Well at least, as long as the UN remains a corrupt criminal enterprise for tyrants, dictators and oligarchs.
Furthermore, it was reported that the UK has withdrawn the invitation
to the Syrian ambassador's to the Royal Wedding. Question to the UK
Foreign Office, why were they invited in the first place? The Foreign
Office invited every Middle East dictator and tyrant but forgot to
invite leaders of democratic nations and even past Prime Ministers of
England. Are those that lead the foreign policy of the UK devoid of any
sense what so ever? It seems that they have taken the same "leave of
senses pill" that is being ingested by those at Foggy Bottom.
Meanwhile I am very glad for the young couple and wish
them untold happiness (remember the royal family and the Middletons are
paying for the event mostly themselves to the tune of 10 million
Now that the pretense has been dropped and the PA (Fatah) has rejoined
forces with the openly genocidal Hamas, what will the US do as far as
the peace process? Will they allow a vote in the UN? Will they continue
to send over 400 million dollars of
our hard earned American tax money to theses modern day Nazis? Will the
US continue to give the PA weapons and training? Or will they true to
form, blame everything on Israel
and say that "Israel's hardline stance to build settlements and refuse
to commit suicide by just moving back to the 1948 armistice lines,
forced the poor misunderstood Palestinians to go completely openly
evil." By the way, if anyone had been paying attention to the media and politics of the PA they would have noticed that the PA was quite good at this Nazis propaganda actuality themselves. They do not need help for that from Hamas.
Oil: We can't drill offshore in the US but we can underwrite offshore
drilling in Brazil. We don't want to be dependent on foreign nations for
our oil, but Obama was thrilled to tell Brazil how we are going to buy
our oil from them. We are not allowed to access our potential energy
sources here in the US according to the President, the only thing we can
do is fund, solar, wind and buy electric cars. Meanwhile, he takes a 17
long gas-guzzling-car caravan to an electric car factory to teach us
all about earth day and energy efficiency. (You can't make this
stupidity up.) In my home town, a gallon of regular is now $4.25. Tell
me why the gas and oil companies get tax breaks?
Food: Have you been to the food store lately? Just saying....you know as
food prices go, so goes the economy, even if for some reason food
prices are not figured into the consumer price index (CPI). Now that I
don't get at all. After housing, it is what people spend most of their
budget on. If you do not have disposable cash because you are spending
more and more on food, there is no money for luxuries, vacations and the
things that are figured into the CPI. They say food prices are too volatile to include in their calculations...well duh. But wouldn't you think that somewhere some Nobel prize winning economist,
instead of telling everyone else how stupid they are would figure out
how to include into the CPI one of the things on which we spend most of
Get over it. Just because Congress passes a law does not mean it is
Constitutional and quite frankly does not mean anyone has to defend it.
It is not, as some say, akin to John Adams defending the Soldiers at the
Boston massacre. This is not a criminal case, where everyone is
entitled to representation. While reprehensible clients have been
represented to defend aspects of the Bill of Rights, be it GITMO internees, Nazis, the KKK or as of right now Pastor Terry Jones, but that is not the reality of DOMA.There
is an underlying Constitutional right in DOMA, but it is the
infringement on the humanity of all citizens of this country and the
cynical attempt by some in Congress to continue the second class status
of those whose sexual orientation differs from the majority.
Duty to defend:
A major law firm has resigned from defending DOMA. It has caused a huge
hullabaloo. However, it brings up the question of the right of an
attorney to not represent a client it finds reprehensible as long as
that refusal to represent does not harm the client. Another ethical
issue is the question of attorneys perpetrating a fraud upon the court
which means if the attorney new that the client was guilty of a criminal
offense are they not obligated to tell the court? There is a pull
between attorney-client privilege and the fact that attorney are
officers of the court and obligated to uphold the law. In fact the issue
is so hot button, that many criminal defense attorneys do not ask their
clients if they are guilty or not. They defend with the information at
hand and while accessing the law.
Here the issue in DOMA is if you as an attorney believe the law to be
unconstitutional are you obligated to defend it? If there was a law that
stated it was a citizen's obligation to kill red-headed people would
you have to defend it because it was passed by Congress? I think not. I
would also hesitate to guess that you would have the right to defy that
law and to hold it up to the ridicule it would deserve in addition to
calling out the purveyors of that law as unAmerican.
Lastly and as I have said before, in our system of checks and balances,
the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is and is not
Constitutional, not the Congress. Congress can pass any number of laws
that it likes, however, it does not mean they are allowable under law.
Just because they are elected and represent the people of this country
does not mean they are not venal ignorant morons devoid of any sense of
ethics or understanding of law. Their purpose is to get themselves
reelected and to pander to whatever their constituency requires. It is
why the Supreme Court exists. It is why there is an executive branch.
Congress can do an endrun around the court once a ruling is handed down,
but it must comply with the ruling and the rules set out by the Court.
Simply put it is called JUDICIAL REVIEW.
Anyway these are some of my latest musings going on in the world. You
don't have to agree with my assessment. But being that this is the
United States of America and as yet, I have not lost my freedom of
speech be it to the leftist-political correct machine nor the
rightist-conservative-disenfranchisement machine (honestly I see them as
just different sides of the same coin), I will call them both out
about their hypocrisy and self-righteousness. I guess you can figure out
why I call myself an independent.
