Obama recently took the time to visit an Indian tribe in New York. The honor they bestowed on him was very appropriate.

THE NEW ANT and the Grasshopper, Two Versions:
The ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER
This one is a little different…. Two Different Versions …
Two Different Morals
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long,
building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool
and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm
and well fed.
The grasshopper has
no food or shelter, so he
dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:
Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard
in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house
and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant
is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper
calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be
allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving..
CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN,
and ABC show up to
provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper
next to a video of theant
in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper
is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper
and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green
Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the SEIU group singing, We shall overcome.
Then Rev Al Sharpton’s assistant
has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper
while he damns the ants. The Reverend Al can not attend as he has contractual commitments to appear on his MSNBC show for which he is paid over two million dollars a year to complain that rich people do not care.
President Obama condemns the ant and blames
President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope
for the grasshopper’s
Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview on The View that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the
grasshopper and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar and given to the grasshopper .
The story ends as we see the grasshopper
and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house,
crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang ofspiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
MORAL OF THE STORY:
Be careful how you vote in 2016.
“What Kind Of Society Are We Leaving Our Kids’ Available here.
This is one man’s opinion.
It seems like the more I do stories about our institutions of higher learning, the more I come to the conclusion that there are no real standards for those teaching our young people. You may need a degree in order to teach, but that’s about all. Honor and integrity are no longer required.
Once again, my home state of Massachusetts shows that no matter how bad one’s character is, as long as they have a degree and are flaming liberals, they’re in! Boston University first realized they had an issue with incoming BU sociology professor Saida Grundy when a Tweet she sent out was brought to the administration’s attention: “white male college students are a “problem population”” and “white masculinity is THE problem for America’s colleges.” She is a black college professor, not that that should matter. As a professor, she is supposed to have open dialogue with her students. Can you imagine if a white college professor Tweeted ”black male college students are a problem population and their entitlement mindset is a MAJOR problem for American colleges?” They’d be fired before the moving truck got there!
Well, OK. So we are a little sensitive about the color thing. She got a little heated, we can just overlook her one indiscretion, right? But it wasn’t one or two or even three. And let’s not stop at four, but six… that we know of! You see, Professor Grundy thinks (like Hillary) that rules, guidelines, and basically good behavior do not apply to her.
The professor decided to mercilessly ridicule a white rape victim on social media with the following;
“^^THIS IS THE S**T I AM TALKING ABOUT. WHY DO YOU GET TO PLAY THE VICTIM EVERY TIME PEOPLE OF COLOR AND OUR ALLIES WANT TO POINT OUT RACISM. my CLAWS?? Do you see how you just took an issue that WASNT about you, MADE it about you, and NOW want to play the victim when I take the time to explain to you some s**t that is literally $82,000 below my pay grade? And then you promote your #whitegirltears like that’s some badge you get to wear… YOU BENEFIT FROM RACISM. WE’RE EXPLAINING THAT TO YOU and you’re vilifying my act of intellectual altruism by saying i stuck my “claws” into you?”
HELLO! The woman was raped as a child. And when the rape victim under attack tried to bow out gracefully, the professor tried to pull her back in with more nasty comments. Since the professor makes $82 thousand and is above the raped woman’s pay grade, shouldn’t she have taken the high road? She could have taken her educated backside out of the conversation and drop it. Is this really someone we want teaching our young people? Maybe someone with a little empathy or compassion?

The really big difference between Republican and Democrat handout recipients is their ability to be sympathetically photogenic. When pressed, the average Democrat welfare recipient can hide the flat–screen TV, stash the cellphone in a drawer and refrain from cigarette smoking. And it’s not too much trouble to pretend to fill out the job application or limp convincingly to prove the bad back disability claim as long as photographers and media are around.
The Republican dependency class is another genus entirely. Empathy generating photo shoots and news coverage for these check–cashers is simply a non–starter. Hiding the Rolex, wheeling the executive jet inside the hangar, displacing the butler from the servant’s quarters and convincing the first wife to pretend to supervise the caterer is just too difficult to organize.
If Democrat welfare beneficiaries can avoid arrest, making jihad videos and Judge Judy the money continues to arrive completely free of social disapproval.
Not so for GOP crony capitalists. These leeches fight a two front war: Prevent competition and confuse conservatives. They are loud and proud “job creators,” economic mainstays and incubators of breakthrough technology! All the favored crony industry requires for total success is billions of taxpayer dollars in perpetuity while the people who supply the tax dollars maintain a discrete and respectful silence.
And Republican officeholders must pretend the conservative market principles they espouse in campaign commercials somehow don’t apply to this particular crony.
A disappointing number of 2016 GOP presidential candidates recently did just that in Iowa during the quadrennial Pour Money Down the Cornhole Festival otherwise known as the Iowa Ag Summit.
There Republican presidential candidates worship the ethanol subsidy and praise ethanol entrepreneurs for their selfless addiction to subsidies and environmental fairy tales.
The Renewable Fuel Standards law requires all gasoline refined in the US be 10 percent ethanol. Ethanol is the wonder product, made from corn, which makes gasoline more costly while reducing miles per gallon and increasing wear on internal combustion engines.
Diluting perfectly efficient gas with ethanol is like forcing mom to add sawdust to her cake recipe to protect our valuable flour stockpile. Sure the additional roughage keeps dad regular, but wear and tear on teeth and the occasional oven fire — not to mention that Home Depot flavor — doesn’t come close to compensating for the missing wheat.
The same is true for ethanol, all at a cost to taxpayers of $6 billion a year in handouts.
Somehow those facts didn’t make it into the spiel GOP mega contributor and summit sponsor Bruce Rastetter made.
Ethanol supporters would have one believe that before the bill was passed requiring refineries to dilute your gasoline, corn grew wild in Iowa and no one was even aware there was a use for the weed, other than the occasional frontier corn fritter. And even after wise agronomists in Washington started throwing money at corn farmers the fuel market was controlled by sinister forces that prevented innovation.
Just like the whale oil cartel prevented widespread drilling for oil until the early 60’s.
As columnist Paul Driessen wrote Rastetter’s pitch to the assembled candidates was pointed and effective: Failure to support ethanol handouts in Iowa means no victory in the 2016 caucus and no chance for the GOP nomination.
Naturally Big Government Republicans didn’t require much in the way of pressure to crumble. Jeb Bush said corny gasoline reduces the demand for imported oil. Mike Huckabee said it’s a way for the nation to “fuel itself.” (No pun intended.) And Lindsay Graham solemnly stated “Every gallon of ethanol … is one less gallon you have to buy from people who hate your guts,” which makes you wonder when Obama started pumping gas.
Rick Santorum, trying to get someone to pay attention, thought the RFS means something besides oil and natural gas “are allowed into [the energy] stream.” And Scott Walker was a profile in cowardice as he abandoned his 2006 call for an end to ethanol subsidies.
Rick Perry split the difference and wanted to end federal ethanol subsidies, but said that individual states could choose to be a foster parent for corn, which is at least a Constitutionally valid stance and would exempt most states that don’t grow corn and corn lobbyists.
The only candidates claiming to be conservative supporters of market competition and having the courage to tell Iowa voters the subsidy spigot should be turned off were Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio — although Rubio did refer to corn as “maize.”
There’s an old song about moonshiners called “White Lightening” with a refrain that goes “Mighty, mighty pleasin’ my pappy’s corn squeezin’s.” Until Republicans can stop “pleasin’” crony capitalists with subsidies at the expense of the public, taxpayers will continue to be subject to regular “squeezin.”
Denzel Washington dishes on his religious upbringing and his faith in God and the Bible.
War on Christianity (not all religions). You don’t see the Quran and Torah being banned from schools, military, and public places like is happening with the Bible.
Celebrities who “come out” vocal about their Christian faith.
Are you looking for your blessing? When was the last time you blessed someone else?
Ferguson police setup & got themselves shot to gain sympathy, according to neighbors! HUH?
Each week I am inundated with emails from people all over the country with stories that are “out of this world.” Some are so deep in conspiracy theories that, if compiled, we would have a great science fiction novel. But let’s deal with a little reality, truth, and fact!
Look at what’s happening on our college campuses. Jewish students being arrested at a peaceful protest for inciting a riot. They did nothing. The opposition started the violence because they wanted the Jewish students to stop “spreading their propaganda.” Wow, really!? On our college campuses, where free thought and free flow of ideas are openly welcomed? REALLY? Or recently, at a California college, a Jewish student was denied acceptance to a committee. Not because she was unqualified, but because she was Jewish. Yep. So much for a institutes of higher learning and reason.
Where are the professors and administrators while all this is going on? Sitting around their little Lib think-tanks, or should I say, “Devoid of Rational Thought Tanks.” There is little to no pushback from the Liberal academia. Why? From what I have read, it’s because they are smarter than us! It’s because we are too uneducated to work it through without their help and anyone from “their world.” Any professors who take a more Conservative stance on issues are immediately ridiculed and pushed out. Once again I say, so much for freedom of thought and free flowing ideas on campus.
It seems most of these campuses have become little Liberal concentration camps to reprogram those who have lost their way and gone down the Conservative thinking path. They have to be reprogrammed and brought back to a more Liberal way of thinking. Those already in the Liberal Camp are reinforced that all is good in their world.
No, you say?

CPAC 2015 Pre-View
CPAC stands for the Conservative Political Action Committee. Big woop! What does that mean? Well, in looking at some of the posts on Facebook and other online services, I can see that the Left believes it’s a bunch of stuffy, old, white, grey-haired guys that think the only good minority is one working for minimum wage.
‘Where did that come from? Can’t be from actual fact. Because leadership in the Republican party is as diverse, if not more so, than the Democrats leadership.
Look at the lineup, Governor Bobby Jindal, U.S. Representative Mia Love, Carly Fiorina, Senator Tim Scott and the list goes on. So how is it we let the Dem’s paint a picture of us as the modern day KKK? Marketing! You can lie about anything as long as you market it to the right people the right way.
To be clear, the Dems voted against ending slavery, against giving women the right to vote, and they started the KKK with the express intent to scare the blacks back into slavery or kill them off all together.
The Democrats have painted a picture that Republicans were responsible for all this. Like Brian Williams’ rescue from the downed chopper, it ain’t so!
President LBJ said he knew how to keep them n*****s voting for Democrats for 100 years. He was right. Keep anyone dependent on the government for food, shelter, money and so on and they will do anything you want them to do out of self-preservation.
Republicans have always fought for the rights of all people. All the misdirection from the Left can’t change that.
And let’s talk about this “war on women.” …

Did that get your attention? First, let me say Happy New Year! I hope you had a great Christmas and holiday season and that you have come back to reality and the rhythm of life whole and healthy.
I’ve been on vacation for a few weeks. And while it was more like dropping off social media and the web for a while than actually going on vacation, it was just good to have some down time.
Unfortunately, the PC police and the Hard Left Loons didn’t take a day, or even an hour, off. They were and still are out in full force.
The first day back I ran a piece about preachers in Canada being arrested for simply teaching Biblical principles as it pertains to homosexuality. There was nothing about hating the person. No comments about beheading the person. No comments about stoning the person. No reference to acting out in a violent way against anyone in the LGBTQ community. They were simply teaching what God said about homosexuality according to the Bible.
Yet that is considered “hate speech” because it calls the actions of another human being sin.
Well, first I have to say, if you don’t believe in God, then you don’t believe in sin. So why are you upset? Next I would ask, how is it hate speech to say the actions of a person are against God?
Is it hate speech if I say I don’t like Mexican food? It gives me bad gas and I really just don’t like it. Does that mean I hate Mexicans? Because I think the Mexican border should be secured and people should come here legally, does that mean I hate Mexicans? How petty of you to think that I want the border secured to keep out Mexicans when it’s been proven that people from all over the world come over the border illegally.
I posted the statement on social media “It’s already happening in Canada, pastors being arrested for preaching against homosexuality.” A follower named Chris responded after I asked people to define “hate speech.” I got the usual “low IQ” responses; “anything that comes out of your mouth,” “anything a Republican says,” “anything a conservative says” and so on. But at least Chris took an honest stab at it… well, as honest as a left-leaning progressive can.
“hate speech is anything that incites violence … also specifically its hate speech when you do things like compare gays to pedophiles and people who have sex with animals.
“…if they weren’t producing hate speech there would be no problems.”
Well, I have never heard any preacher (except the right Reverend Al Sharpton) advocate violence. Inciting violence in today’s society is easy. Make fun of someone’s baseball team in the parking lot after a game and you might get your head bashed in and end up in a coma (like what happened at a Los Angeles Dodgers game a few years back). Were the attackers charged with hate crimes? No!
A liberal professor tore up an “anti-abortion” display on campus while calling the young men and woman there all kinds of names. Was she brought up on hate charges? Nope!
So, in all honesty, he should have said when a “conservative religious type” says something that offends, they should be brought up on hate speech charges.
Webster’s says, Pedophilia is a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children, generally age 11 years or younger. Not Joe’s definition. So are you saying that no gays or lesbians are pedophiles? And if that is what you’re saying, would you say the same about heterosexuals? Or do the same rules not apply?
This is classic, “…if they weren’t producing hate speech there would be no problems.” Where do we live in “Who-Ville” where we all eat rainbows and poop butterflies?
Wake up! Someone, somewhere will always be offended by something someone somewhere says. Why? Because they choose to be offended and intolerant!
What Left-logic says is that if I don’t accept the way you want to live, the things you want to do, and your belief system over mine, then I’m a hater. Period!
If I believe that abortion is wrong and that you actually take a human life, I’m a woman hater. If I don’t believe in same sex marriage, I hate same sex couples.
According to Left-logic I hate my children. And so did many of you reading this. I have promised the kids I would not give away their deep dark secrets, and I won’t. But, when one was dabbling in drugs I told them I wouldn’t support them. I even had them arrested for having drugs on them. OMG where is child protective services when you need them? According to Left-logic, ……

Last week Mr. Obama declared himself our emperor! Well, at least in so many words.
You didn’t hear it? Of course you did, but it was thinly veiled and you have to do a little work stringing it together. Just like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao Tse-tung before him Mr. Obama has been openly laying out his plan in his speeches across the country. Hitler never said he was going to “kill millions of Jews.” He said, and I quote, “the discovery of the Jewish virus is one of the greatest revolutions that has taken place in the world” and “If only one country, for whatever reason, tolerates a Jewish family in it, that family will become the germ center for fresh sedition,” and “the heaviest blow which ever struck humanity was Christianity; Bolshevism is Christianity’s illegitimate child. Both are inventions of the Jew.” Even with these blatant statements, no one believed what was being rumored to be going on at death camps across Germany.
These quotes were bits and pieces of conversations and speeches over time. But people were too dull or simply afraid to pull it all together. Well, I’m not. And neither are many of my brothers in this battle for liberty, freedom, and the real American way.
My family represents everything that is great about America. We are an interracial, legal immigrant, blended family who worked their way up from living in one of the poorest cities in the country (the area I grew up in was once referred to as the “Bangladesh of America”) to a great middle-class area in California. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Enter Barack Obama… and I quote:
“The problem is that you know I’m the President of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed, and Congress right now has not changed what I consider to be a broken immigration system.” – President Obama on Feb. 14, 2013
“With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed.” – President Obama on March 28, 2011
“Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws. And then the judiciary has to interpret the laws.” – President Obama on March 28, 2011
These are all his speeches in his words as dictated by his teleprompter. On many more occasions he reiterated that he lacked the legal authority to take action on the immigration issue.
Yes, on Thursday he admitted that there were presidents before him that broke that law and that he was going to hide behind them and break the law himself. Because he’s a “take action” kind of guy!
“There are actions I have the legal authority to take as president – the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican presidents before me – that will help make our immigration system more fair and more just.” – President Obama from Thursday’s speech
Hello, Mr. President, are you now saying that you have the right to break the law because others before you have done it? Is that what this has been all about? Have you evolved on this issue like you have with gay marriage?
Mr. President, you’re supposed to be a man of integrity. Integrity dictates that you do the right thing no matter who’s watching (or not watching) or what kind of backlash or applause you may or may not get. Not what you think is the right thing… but the right and legal thing.
If my family is hungry because I can’t provide for them, does that give me a pass to steal from the local grocery store? NO! Never. Not for any reason. But what this country allows me the freedom to do is knock on every door of every vendor in the street to see if they will let me do a little work to buy food for my family. Or I can go to the grocery store and offer to do anything to raise money to feed my family. But it never gives me permission to break the law.
Mr. President, you have single-handedly made a mockery of your position and of our country.
When you say “I’m the President of the United States. I’m not the emperor of the United States. My job is to execute laws that are passed….” but then you go on to make or change a law to the point where it no longer resembles the original law, then you have appointed yourself emperor by your own words and deeds.
When you say “… the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that’s just not the case, because there are laws on the books that Congress has passed,” then by suspending deportations you have broken the law. Those are your words, not mine.
And when you say, “…Congress passes the law. The executive branch’s job is to enforce and implement those laws,” but then you, sir, change the law to make it unenforceable as passed by the congress, you are once again breaking the law as you stated it is.
This is what makes you a hypocrite. Not the color of your skin. Not you party affiliation. Not your religious affiliation. Not even where you may or may not have been born. It’s just your inability to find the truth and live by it.
An emperor is someone who rules as the highest power in the land. He has all authority to make and execute laws and can change them at any time without penalty.
If this was the position you sought, you came to the wrong place because the “peasants” are on the rise and have had it. A revolution is coming and as in the Russian revolution the people in power chose to ignore the outcry of the “peasants” and the rulers lost.
Keep ignoring us and discounting us your Highest Emperor Obama and it will mean political destruction for you and your team.

I believe in giving people many chances… as long as they are willing to work at correcting it. I never fired anyone for making mistakes at work, as long as I knew we had properly instructed them in their duties, that they were working at making it better, and that the mistake, though possibly costing the company money, was an honest mistake and not malicious in any way. We always gave them a numerous chances, unless the person made no effort to fix the behavior or patterns causing the issues.
Some employees come into a job thinking they have all the answers, they know better than the boss, and they could actually run the company better than anyone else. In most cases they are dead wrong! I also found that in most cases, when I gave these people management responsibilities to prove a point, I was right and they would fail miserably. Interestingly, they would always blame it on someone else. Sound like someone you know?
Me too. Enter Mr. Obama.
First let me say, don’t waste the electrons writing emails to me telling me how other Administrations have lied to us in the past. Like the national debt, Mr. Obama and his Administration have racked up lying stats as never seen before in this nation’s history. It’s almost like their M.O. (modus operandi) is to tell everything in lie format that way you never have to worry about the truth.
There are more and more “main stream” journalists and news reporters coming out in agreement that this Administration will be known as the most secretive Administration ever! In Sharyl Attkisson’s book “Stonewalled” she goes over story after story (confirmed) as to how this Administration purposely mislead the news media or didn’t answer questions all together with intent to keep them in the dark from what really happened in situations like Benghazi, the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, and Obamacare.
Do you know that not once, not one time, has this Administration come out to the podium on the first round and admitted to making a mistake and shared how they were going to fix it? And when they finally do admit to the “mistake,” they blamed it on another agency or someone else.
My new question is… Is lying just part of being a Democrat? I hope not. I have many friends that are Democrats. They are nothing like those on Capitol Hill. Mr. Obama, Mr. Reid, Mrs. Pelosi, Mr. Holder, just to name a few, have been caught in “serial lies.” They work off of each other to keep a lie in the air and Americans confused. But it’s not working.
According to inside sources, even Hillary Clinton had the good sense to back out of these issues. She refused to go out on the interview circuit days after the Benghazi attack because as she put it “I’m not going out into that mess.”
Yes, Obama “stays the course” of lie, lie, and keep lying some more until “they” finally believe it. I don’t know who “they” are any longer because fewer and fewer believe what he’s trying to sell.
Do you think, really think, the White House knew nothing of what Professor Gruber said this week. You know, that the healthcare bill was drafted to hide the fact that it was a tax and that they were banking on the ignorance of the American people’s blind trust in the president? Do you really think that Mr. Reid, Mrs. Pelosi, and Mr. Biden didn’t know how they were going to have to prostitute (no insult meant to prostitutes) themselves to sell this to the American people?

Don’t you feel like you’re dealing with a stubborn teenager every time you hear and see President Obama speak? Even his own party has started to look on him with distain and disgust.
He did nothing (thank God!) to help his party win or keep seats, except raise money! We learned several things in this last election. You really can’t buy votes, and negative ads are no longer effective.
There were several high-profile elections across the country where one candidate was outspent 3, 4, or 5-to-one and yet, the underdog still won. Why? As much as I like to say people aren’t paying attention, the average voter seems to be paying attention enough to be irritated with all those negative ads and mailers that bombard them during election time, and it takes lots of money to do that.
Based on many of the president’s comments this week, he has a real problem grasping reality. I’m wondering if the clowns at MSNBC, CNN, and those other so-called news outlets were drinking the same Kool-Aid he’s been drinking.
They were all dumbfounded at the election outcome. What happened? How could this be? Chris Matthew’s tingle down his leg became a jolt to his cerebral cortex. One or two of the commentators had their medication wear off early, as was the case with Ed Shultz, who admitted this was a vote against Obama’s policies but wouldn’t admit that the people were right about the policies being bad.
The president is like your teenage child who never does anything wrong and never has a bad idea. This week the votes were against policy. His policy. His agenda. He can’t see it. Has your teenager ever come home with a D or F on their test, only to tell you it was the teacher’s fault? They didn’t explain the subject properly. They didn’t give you enough warning about the test. They didn’t word the questions properly. They didn’t give you enough time. Blah blah blah. Not my fault!
That’s what we heard all week. Mr. Obama made many statements like, “Well, only a third of the American populous voted,” insinuating that “the people” hadn’t spoken. Yes, when he wins an election or a Democrat wins an election, no matter how slim the margin or how many come out to vote, its a “mandate” and an affirmation of the work he is doing. But the reverse doesn’t hold up.
This “teenager” has had to stop using phrases like, “the war on women,” “gender inequality,” “they want you back in chains,” and “they want you sick and dead” just to mention a few.
The temper tantrum won’t be tolerated any longer. The American people have spoken. They want the teenager grounded. They want us to take away his keys and put a curfew on him. I hope the new guardians will do exactly that.
When Obama saw the writing on the wall Tuesday evening he asked for a bipartisan meeting that took place last Friday. Most figured it would be a “Hey, you guys won, I don’t want to yell and fight each other over the next two years let’s see what we can agree on and move forward” moment.
But no! That ever stubborn teenager in him would not let go! He let everyone in attendance know that he would fight the fight because the American people were on his side (obviously a very confused man) and he would basically stay the course.
He made the comment several times that Republicans needed to pass legislation that he would be happy with. Huh?! What about passing legislation that will benefit the American people, for the greater good, not for his good? Does he not realize this isn’t a party thing? He is used to going to Pelosi and Reid and saying bring me this bill with these terms in it and they go like good little Borg drones and do as told.

President Obama has stated that he had a pen and a phone and would use it if Congress didn’t act. He insinuates that they do nothing to help the American people. He seems to forget that there are over 380 bipartisan bills sitting on his top lapdog, Harry “Hindlick” Reid’s desk who refuses to bring them to the floor for a vote. Why? If they are truly bad and Reid has control of the Senate, and his minions, then there shouldn’t be an issue. Maybe he can call Reid and knock them lose? Never mind. I know his phone is dead!
The phone has to be dead, because for 214 days he was unable to make a phone call on behalf of Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmooressi to Mexican President Enrique Nieto. He also was not able to get Secretary John Kerry on the phone, nor was he able to reach California Governor Jerry Brown who hosted the Mexican president in California to discuss the issue with either of them. Interestingly, a State Department spokesman said they had visited the Sergeant several times in prison. Apparently, he was too doped up to remember.
At first I thought the president must be working behind the scenes with his staff and team like he did to secure Bowe Bergdahl’s release, right? That had to be it. After all, getting one Marine who made a wrong turn out of a Mexican prison had to be so much easier than releasing 5 terrorists who swore Jihad on Americans in exchange for one potential traitor and deserter, right? Wrong!
I believe President Obama, once again, showed his contempt for our military men and women by completely ignoring Andrew’s issue. Really, how easy would this have been? Obama calls Nieto. “Yo Nieto, help me out here. I need to get a boatload of these Dems re-elected so we can set up some more watering stations in the desert for your people to be able to make it across the border safely, that way they can work and send money home for you to steal it from them. I can’t do that if we don’t win. So send the marine home. Tell them what a great job I and my administration did to negotiate a release and I can almost guarantee open borders for all. Waddaya say?” Sounds easy enough. Or he could have suspended NAFTA with that pen of his until he was released.
All I can figure is that what the president did was to respect another country’s legal system and allow their laws to play out. I guess Mexico doesn’t have an “executive order” clause for Nieto to use whenever he feels like it.
Looking back, it was the “do-nothing” Congress, not the “do-everything-wrong-and-in-secret” Administration that got Andrew released. It was several Republican representatives, including Dana Rohrabacher, Ed Royce, Matt Salmon, and former Governor Bill Richardson who went to Mexico and kept applying pressure to the Mexican Attorney General. The judge didn’t release Andrew. It was the AG who dropped the charges forcing the judge to release Andrew.
One unnamed source said that when the AG was explaining how America should understand that Mexico is a “rule of law” country and allow Mexico’s legal system to run its course, the representative basically responded, “So is America, would you like us to allow our legal system to work as it pertains to illegal immigration?

If you want to see someone on the progressive left blow a gasket, talk about voter fraud. They will all tell you that it doesn’t exist or it’s so small it’s immeasurable. I say they can’t see the forest for the trees!
The hard part about voter fraud is, you have to prove the person knew what they were doing was illegal. Imagine hearing this at the poll:
Poll worker: Hello, your name?
Fraudulent voter: John Smith.
Poll Worker: Sign here Mr. Smith and I’ll give you your ballot.
Poll Worker: Sir, do you know if you are NOT Mr. Smith and you are voting for him it’s a federal offense punishable by fines and jail time?
Mr Smith: Yes, Mr. Poll Worker, and I assure you I’m Mr. Smith.
Please!!!! Have you ever heard this at the polls? Never!
One state assembly person voted 19 times, and yes, she finally got caught. She tried to say that she didn’t remember voting (18 extra times?)
In Florida, major cases of voter fraud go back to 1984 when it became so bad that it was hard to miss. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, types of voter fraud included:
Andrew Ladanowski, owner of a computer software company, suspected Florida’s Division of Elections wasn’t really verifying any information.
There were over 700 voter ID cards in Florida that seemed to have been duplicated. He verified his suspicions by dong a quick analysis of Miami-Dade’s voting systems where, it turned out, there were 44 voter ID’s issued to the same person. Elections officials admit 42 of those 44 were duplicates. But what I want to know is, can’t the computer systems find these issues? Can’t we divert some of the millions of dollars wasted on the Obamacare site (or any one of the hundreds of other government programs wasting good tax money) to cleaning up voter registrations?
When finished he found over 762 Florida voters have more than one county-issued voter ID card. Some are registered with the same address, and others are registered in different counties. And a computer can’t flag this information, why?

Judge Scalia says court must favor religion in rulings!
This story goes in my “Administrators gone wild” file. It seems a Nebraska school district is instructing its teachers not to use the terms “boys and girls,” “ladies and gentlemen,” “you guys,” well, you get the idea. Why? Because they don’t include gender non-confirming terminology and therefore causes confusion for those few children who don’t identify with any specific gender. Simply put, it’s just not inclusive of all.
To make sure that we include everyone and no one feels slighted they have decided the proper inclusive terminology for young kids is to call them “purple penguins.” Because that isn’t confusing at all?
Now we have to change everything because a few kids in the class are being told by their parents that they don’t have to “choose” a gender (like you choose a pair of shoes?) until they’re comfortable doing so. Instead of teaching a child what gender they were born into, they make sure the child lives in a sort of “Gender Twilight Zone” until they can decide what direction to go in. Don’t believe me? Look up the movement to stop hospitals and doctors from “pronouncing gender” on a baby when “it” is born. Yes, the crazy train is close at hand.
This is probably that same group of “$%#*%^” people that said “we can’t keep score at Little League games because it makes the losers feel bad. We shouldn’t give letter grades because it makes the kids feel bad. Don’t mark a paper in red pen, it makes the kids feel bad. Really? Stop all the nonsense and just say, “Let’s not challenge our children because if everything goes the way of the Progressive Left they won’t have to excel at anything, the government will take care of them.” The only definite in these people’s lives is that sane rational thought needs to go.
Administrators feel that by calling them purple penguins it allows the children to be free thinkers. They go on to say, that we should stop asking the kids to line up as boys and girls, and instead, ask them to line up by who likes, skateboards or bikes, dogs or cats, summer or winter. Before guiding the kids, consider the question, “will this create a gender spectrum?”
People, the inmates are running the asylum. Though I have great respect for the “shrinks” of the world, they are not all on the same page on this issue. For them, it’s not an exact science. Some doctors tell you kids need definites in their lives, solid boundaries. They need to know who and what they are. Some say noooooo they need to be able to explore their inner self and look at the world in different ways. Ok, sure, now which one is right?
So they chose penguins as an inclusive, gender non-specific option. Penguins are a gender-specific, traditional family-oriented species. According to LiveScience.com, most penguins are monogamous, at a minimum, for the duration of the mating season, and in many cases, for most of their lives (married forever). Researchers have found that penguins re-paired with the same partner 82 percent of the time and certain species of penguins re-paired 90 percent of the time. Better than the human divorce rates.
Each gender has their designated roles, according to LiveScience.com. The male (gender specific) usually starts the mating ritual and will pick out a nice nesting site before he approaches a female. (Wow! All those choices without including her?) After mating, the female emperor penguin will lay a single egg. The female (gender specific) of this species will place the egg on the male’s feet to keep warm in his fat folds while she goes out and hunts for several weeks.
So with all this exclusive, gender-specific, family-valued system, how did the loons on the Left choose purple penguins to be the “inclusive, non-gender-specific” alternative to “boys and girls?” Coin toss? Everyone loves penguins?
