Black Activists Speak Out against Obama Amnesty Agenda

*** begin quote ***

Stacy Washington, talk radio host:

Well, black liberals, sorry — but I have to put you on blast.

Every time this country has pardoned illegal immigrants, crime and black unemployment have gone through the roof.  Don’t believe me?  Check the statistics from Reagan’s congressionally-approved amnesty package.  Not only did three times as many illegal immigrants as were promised become legal through the undiscovered intricacies of chain immigration, but the crime rate soared and black unemployment went through the roof.

Sorry again, black liberals.  You just got dumped!

*** end quote ***

I am shocked — in the sense of “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” Captain Renault in Casablanca — that there hasn’t been more outrage from Black Americans.

Never mind Ferguson — which is a national disaster — the minimum wage laws and encouraging illegal immigration are what should put protestors in the streets.

It’s another national disgrace.

POLITICAL: Toss out ALL criminal Undocumented Immigrants — no excuses, no delays!

BELTWAY CONFIDENTIAL: LAW
New DHS immigration rules: Drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, gun offenders not top deportation priorities
BY BYRON YORK | NOVEMBER 22, 2014 | 8:49 AM

*** begin quote ***

The Department of Homeland Security has just released new “Policies for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants.” Designed to fill in the details after President Obama’s announcement that at least four million currently illegal immigrants will be given work permits, Social Security numbers and protection from deportation, the DHS guidelines are instructions for the nation’s immigration and border security officers as they administer the president’s directive.

The new priorities are striking. On the tough side, the president wants U.S. immigration authorities to go after terrorists, felons, and new illegal border crossers. On the not-so-tough side, the administration views convicted drunk drivers, sex abusers, drug dealers, and gun offenders as second-level enforcement priorities. An illegal immigrant could spend up to a year in prison for a violent crime and still not be a top removal priority for the Obama administration.

*** end quote ***

Surely they are kidding!

As I always say Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient! And in this case, STUPID!

Sorry, but “prioritizing” should be if you don’t follow the law, you’re GONE!

In 30 minutes of less.

And, the southern border is a joke to be called a border.

Instead of looking for new ways to poke “We, The Sheeple” — and yes, that’s a euphamism — they should be asking for the resources to do the job right!

Instead of the IRS investigating and harassing Tea Party groups, they should be aimed at this current and present danger!

Argh!

POLITICAL: Ford aluminum truck is a Gooferment mandate

Is Alloy Your Ally?

The bottom line is that Ford is going over to aluminum chiefly to make it politically feasible to continue building a mass-market full-size truck. As I have ranted about previously, the “driver” is not market demand so much as government mandate.

*** end quote ***

So here we have again politicians and bureaucrats making the market conform to their wishes.

And yet everyone claims that the USA is “free”.

Guess I have the wrong dictionary?

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/free

*** begin quote ***

free adjective, freer, freest.

{Extraneous Deleted}

5.exempt from external authority, interference, restriction, etc., as a person or one’s will, thought, choice, action, etc.; independent; unrestricted.

*** end quote ***

So there is no ECONOMIC justification to buy one of these.

Argh!

POLITICAL: Eminent Domain is abused by politicians and bureaucrats

City To Bulldoze 350 Working Class Homes To Build Fancy Stores – Thanks To Federal Funds
Written by: Daniel Jennings  Current Events
November 5, 2014

*** begin quote ***

An Indiana city is planning to use eminent domain to bulldoze a 74-year-old neighborhood to make way for a real estate development.The city of Charlestown wants to demolish 354 homes for new residential development, and it would pay for it with federal funds.

Charlestown’s city council has declared the entire neighborhood of Pleasant Ridge — where some families have owned homes for more than 40 years — “blighted.” By using that term, it can throw out the mostly working class residents and tear down their homes to make way for new retail and residential development.

*** end quote ***

“Eminent Domain” was never intended to allow politicians and bureaucrats to be in the Real Estate business.

“Blighted” is a loaded term.

Transient my <synonym for donkey>!

Argh!

POLITICAL: Separate Health Insurance from employment

Wednesday, November 12, 2014

On a slightly different note, while I think Obamacare is a giant FAIL on so many points, I do think that it demonstrates the need to end associating medical insurance with one’s employment.

Car Insurance should be the model. You don’t lose your car insurance if you change jobs.

Let WalMart, Credit Unions, Fraternal Organizations sell Group Medical Insurance.

Just like Life Insurance!

Did you know that the Knights of Columbus invented Life Insurance for the poor working men. And, it took off like wildfire. My maternal great grandmother, a Protestant, bought in for her brothers by claiming they were Catholic. Until Met Life came along with a better rate. (Laugh!)

Obamacare may have given us lemons, but we can make lemonade out of it.

Then on to “pension reform”.

POLITICAL: World War I was a national disaster

HOW WORLD WAR I CHANGED AMERICA
31st July 2014 by: Tom Woods

Robert Higgs joined me today as World War I week continues on the Tom Woods Show. Bob, a scholar of government growth (among many other things) is uniquely qualified to discuss the institutional and other changes in American life that resulted from the Great War.

# – # – #  

There is no doubt that the “Peace Candidate” Wilson put the USA into the European War.

There is no doubt that the Federal Reserve allow Wilson to “pay” for WW1.

There is no doubt that the draft was involuntary servitude.

There is no doubt that the USA was an isolationist (i.e., Swiss) neutral.

There is no doubt that the Lusitania was carrying munitions in violation of Neutrality.

There is no doubt that the Armistice set the stage for Hitler and WW2.

And, when we gather for 11/11 at 11AM, we should all pray Dona Nobis Pacem!

POLITICAL: “Liberal” ideas to restrict “democracy”

WHEN DEMOCRATS LOSE ELECTIONS THE MEDIA PUSH TO ANNIHILATE THE CONSTITUTION
John Nolte on Twitter @NolteNC  

*** begin quote *** 

The people behind Vox.com and the New York Times are not dumb. They understand perfectly that the framers of our Constitution knew what they were doing, which was putting in place a system to actively encourage gridlock and to discourage exactly what it is the elite media want: less democracy and more power in the hands of a central government, the president, and America’s elite (like the media).
This 4 year proposal would also greatly diminish the power of the states. Elections would be driven more by national concerns than local ones. Sorry Democrats, but it is vitally important to the health of our democracy that local politics have a profound effect on national policy.

*** end quote ***

I have some ideas to propose:

* No one can stand for election without having sat out a year from any political office. (It works for the poor college athlete who transfers scruples; why not for politicains?)

* Repeal the Seventeenth and return power to the States.

* Federal elections on even years; state elections on odd years.

* Election Day is April 16th!

* Eliminate elections. If all politics are local, I should elect my “block captain”. Then everything cascades upwards.

* Campaigns are responsible for ALL advertisements. And, only contributions from real people to be represented can be accepted. (If you’re running for a Nevada seat, you can only take contributions from real Nevadans.)

* Any campaign contribution “left over” is returned to the taxpayers’ of the district. (Or used to reduce the National Debt?)

* Term limits seems obvious!

* All party affiliations MUST be declare in ANY advertisement. 

* If you do have corporate sponsors, then you must wear their logo at all times like NASCAR.

* All Incumbents are listed on the ballot in RED with an ASTERIX as the BOTTOM choice.

* All races have run offs unless the winner gets ¾ of the registered voters.

* NOTA (None of the above) is a negative vote for ALL candidates. 

* A weighted ranking voting system (aka instant run off system) should be implemented — rank your choices from top to bottom and there’s never a “wasted vote”.

* ALSO voter id goes without saying — if India, Afghanistan, and other “Third World Countries” can do, then why can’t we?

And that’s just for starters!
