I’m no Menendez fan, but “we all know” this is political payback from the Obama White House.

How fast will they indict Hillary or Harry?

Slow roll and crickets on that for sure!

DHS Brags of Arresting 5% of Criminal Aliens It Freed From Detention — On the heels of releasing over 36,000 criminal aliens from detention, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has the audacity to pat itself on the back for arresting a tiny fraction of the illegal immigrants—thousands convicted

Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient.

This just proves it.

Sorry, but it’s time for a reset!

Argh!

POLITICAL: Remember “the enemy of your enemy is your enemy”

After a Twelve Year Mistake in Iraq, We Must Just March Home
written by ron paul
sunday march 22, 2015

*** begin quote ***

Twelve years ago last week, the US launched its invasion of Iraq, an act the late General William Odom predicted would turn out to be “the greatest strategic disaster in US history.”

Before the attack I was accused of exaggerating the potential costs of the war when I warned that it could end up costing as much as $100 billion. One trillion dollars later, with not one but two “mission accomplished” moments, we are still not done intervening in Iraq.

President Obama last year ordered the US military back into Iraq for the third time. It seems the Iraq “surge” and the Sunni “Awakening,” for which General David Petraeus had been given much credit, were not as successful as was claimed at the time. From the sectarian violence unleashed by the US invasion of Iraq emerged al-Qaeda and then its more radical spin-off, ISIS. So Obama sent the US military back.

POLITICAL: ‘Mandatory Voting’ like “Jumbo Shrimp”

Obama Broaches the Idea of ‘Mandatory Voting’

*** begin quote ***

While discussing money in politics on Wednesday, President Obama broached a topic normally confined to academic circles: A law requiring people to vote, reports David Jackson at USA Today.

*** end quote ***

Anyone else think, like I did when I first heard this asinine idea, of the old USSR / North Korea / Cuba style voting?

“If voting made any difference they wouldn’t let us do it.” ― attributed to Mark Twain

I’ve been voting every since I could, and it’s mattered not.

And, the joke is: “if you don’t vote, you can’t complain. if you vote and lose, you voted for it. if you vote and ‘win’, nothing changes.”

I’ve come to the conclusion that “voting” is a waste of time.

Secession is the only chance for freedom and liberty.

POLITICAL: END “public” pensions

CONTROVERSIES
Union lobbyist who worked one day as a teacher suing Illinois for $30,000 pension
By Eric BoehmPublished March 19, 2015watchdog.org

*** begin quote ***

After working one day as a substitute teacher in Illinois, David Piccioli could be entitled to an annual pension of more than $30,000.

And he’s suing the state to make sure he gets paid.

Piccioli is a retired union political activist who’s already pulling down a pair of state pensions from Illinois’ beleaguered public retirement system. But he’s taking the Teachers Retirement System to court to squeeze more money out of the state.

The Chicago Tribune reported Thursday that Piccioli is already collecting $31,000 annually from the Teacher Retirement System, but he could get an additional $36,000 annually if he wins his case. He’s also collecting a $30,000-pension from a different state retirement system for his time as a legislative aide in Springfield, according to the Tribune.

Piccioli is a retired lobbyist for the Illinois Federation of Teachers and never worked in a classroom, but he took advantage of a loophole in Illinois pension law to score his teaching pension.

In 2007, he worked one day as a substitute teacher at a Springfield school. Under Illinois pension law, that one day in the classroom allowed him to qualify for a pension that would pay him for all of his years of work as a member of the union.

Time to END “public” pensions, PERIOD!

Just like the mundane peons!

No need to worry about “loopholes”, “double dipping” or any other form of corruption!

Sorry, that Taxpayer is broke and the politicians and bureaucrats have hocked the “family jewels”, “seed corn”, and “mortgaged the farm to the hilt”.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Rubio on post-ObamaCare

HEALTH CARE
My three part plan for the post-ObamaCare era
By Sen. Marco Rubio
Published March 23, 2015
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

First, we should provide an advanceable, refundable tax credit that all Americans can use to purchase health insurance. The value of these credits should increase every year, and we should set the tax preference for employer-sponsored insurance on a glide path to ensure that it will equal the level of the credits at the end of the decade. This will prevent large-scale disruptions and reform one of the most significant distortions in our tax system.

*** end quote ***

Sounds like a great idea!
