In the midst of all the news we are bombarded with, I wonder how many were paying attention to these juicy little tidbits:
Obama has instructed his Energy Secretary to reissue the moratorium on deep water drilling. On Monday the judge lifted the moratorium Obama put in place despite the damage it will do to Gulf economies as well as forcing the US to buy more oil on the open markets. Does Obama, allegedly a law professor or at least “visiting lecturer,” know that the Federal Judge’s ruling is, at this point, the law of the land until a higher court rules and either overturns the judge’s ruling or upholds it on the appeal the government is filing?
And I love, love, love the president’s gum flapping about how he may issue an executive order bypassing Congress to make his and progressive’s personal immigration desires the law of the land? Ahhh . . . can this idiot issue an executive order overturning a law on the books? A Federal law mind you? Ya know the US does have laws on immigration.
I thought Congress makes law and the courts rule on the constitutionality of them. I was pretty sure the president cannot just decide which laws he likes or not and issue executive orders overturning them. And since when has it become vogue for a minority, progressives I mean, to be able to completely bypass the will of the vast majorities? Has the usurper and the minions managed to change the laws of the land when I wasn’t looking? Considering I eyeball these clowns like a mother Grizzly eyes a male when she has cubs, I am sure if the laws of the land had changed, I’d have heard about it.
I say this whole immigration mess disappears with a simple measure – make our immigration laws IDENTICAL to those of Mexico. Bet that shuts up a lot of the idiots and damned fast too.
As for the McChrystal outcome, personally he is indeed guilty of insubordination and that is intolerable in the chain of command. But I love it! He was not nearly as scathing as he could or should have been. Obama and the minions are to successful leadership what a broken leg is to winning a marathon. Dolts, everyone last one of them! I’m glad Obama accepted his resignation. Now McChrystal needs to announce his run for the 2012 presidency. Bet Obama whines like the petulant whining brat I always thought he was.
Why did Texas Republican Barton have to apologize for his comments to BP? He DID NOT apologize to BP for being hauled before Congress. He used an “apology” to highlight the strong arm tactics of Obama demanding he pony up $20 Billion. Uhhhh . . . I’ll pay money for someone to point out in the US Code where a president can confiscate any entities private property without a lawful adjudication prior to seizure. Anyone? Now of course the petulant ones will scream like the 8 year olds they are, but what’s up with Republican’s making him apologize?
The way I heard it the apology is so the Democrats will not make lying political commercials for the upcoming campaign season, using Barton’s word to try and paint it as if Barton was apologizing to BP for having to appear before Congress. Have the public become so stupid they could not see Barton was using the “apology” to place into the Congressional Record the illegalities and actions of Obama in this matter? Duh! Like I said, I get the asses making hay out of it – lying all the way for sure, for they knew his point as well as I – but that Republican’s went along demanding an apology is proof many Republican’s still don’t get it.
The “it” they don’t seem to get is that Obama and progressives are worthless as tits on a hog. And if they make political commercials out of Barton’s “apology” the public will know what it was all about – that this is just dirty Dem politics using words and point taken totally and completely out of context. This is the Rush Limbaugh “Phony Soldiers” thing all over again. Republican’s needn’t apologize for anything just because the prevaricating professional obfuscators demand an apology. I mean Hell, I demand they stop lying at every turn and they aren’t listening to me, so we owe them nothing. Don’t play their game.
When they apologize for being asses, lying like forked tongue devils and misrepresenting anything and everything for the sake of their own political supremacy, then and only then should we treat them with the dignity they know they do not deserve.
