In another shocking display of idiocy/political ballyhoo, President Obama welcomed warmly the Mexican president despite his using the occasion to slam Arizona and their recent passage of bill 1070 which effectively criminalizes illegal entry into the state.
Now, if you want to be an ideologue, do it on your own time and not while besmirching the office of the presidency. For those of you with a short memory span, you might not remember the horrendous treatment of Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu. To rehash, he was dismissed and told ‘if anything new comes up, let me know,’ before Obama left for dinner and left Mr. Netanyahu to his own devices for some time. In the end he and his delegation left for the Israeli consulate for they feared the phones they would use to contact the rest of his administration back in Israel might be bugged. How far have we fallen as a nation when our allies, staunch and true fear being bugged while we bow to dictators?
This is not about the Arizona law. This is about where we as a nation are allowing the silent invasion by Mexican nationals to continue unmolested while throwing our own citizenry under the bus. Our president, who is supposed to defend and protect OUR country, OUR constitution, OUR way of life, is constantly apologizing for perceived transgressions of the past while letting a foreign leader bash one of our own IN FRONT OF CONGRESS. And then to put the slimy icing on the already moldy, fouled up cake, ALMOST ALL OF THE SOCIALIST DEMOCRATS OF AMERICA STOOD UP AND CHEERED!!! How far have we fallen?
Let me make this perfectly clear for the open borders leftists: I SUPPORT ARIZONA! I wish Arizona would put the National Guard on the border and then see if Cali wants to boycott them. Maybe if all the illegals went to the left coast it would wake them up. No wait, since the mayor of LA Villaraigosa is a former member of MeCHA (a radical leftist group that wants a ‘chicano nation’ carved out of the western U.S. with a communist government) he sees no need to curtail illegal immigration. Maybe, just maybe if the illegals break California beyond a reasonable doubt, they can collapse the government and bring about… You get the drift?
Americans have the right to DEMAND that Obama defend Arizona. With the head of ICE now saying the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency might not process illegals arrested by Arizona. This means that the law becomes a revolving door with AZ being the arresting party and the stinkin’ feds releasing the illegals. What has America come to?

Please excuse the lack of posts over the past month. My family has been going through some problems that have prevented me from adequately posting or researching to post. Along with those issues the job search has intensified now that the weather is more favorable. I will continue to post, though it may be a while before I am back to posting much. I appreciate your continued viewership.

In a recent speech given by president Obama at the U of Michigan, Obama didn’t encourage the next leaders of our nation, economy etc to become the great thinkers and doers of tomorrow, but he bashed opponents who disagree with his idea of large government becoming the answer to all of our problems: “But what troubles me is when I hear people say that all of government is inherently bad,” said Obama, who received an honorary doctor of laws degree. “When our government is spoken of as some menacing, threatening foreign entity, it ignores the fact that in our democracy, government is us.”
Where do I start? First off let me address the idea that someone is saying all government is bad. No one is saying that, except the anarchists who are CRAZY. If there is too little government, things WILL fall apart. That is what led to the Constitution. The Articles of Confederation were so weak that the states were doing whatever they wanted and acting like their own countries. The Constitution was made so that the federal government was just strong enough to bond the states together and that’s it. Too much government leads to tyranny. The founders put us closer to anarchy, but far enough away that we’d stick together.
Secondly, our founders DID speak of government as a NECESSARY evil. George Washington said “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” They saw that we needed a government, but wanted to seriously constrain it so that our own would never enslave us as the British did. That is why a strict interpretation of the Constitution is the only true interpretation. Activist judges have lead us down the road to totalitarianism, we are almost there. The IRS has been given new powers to enforce the health care mandate, the IRS is seeking out individuals with ‘combat experience’ as well as ordering new shotguns. Why does a tax collection agency need new shotguns and 16,000+ agents, some with combat experience? But I digress.
Lastly, nitpicking a bit, we are not a democracy but a republic. Our president can now, not only be titled ‘The Worst President of Our Lifetime and Beyond’, but historically stupid as well. Bravo Mr. President, or should I say (in honor of the bashing of the ‘irresponsible’ actions of Arizona) Senor El Presidente.
