POLITICS: Senator Ayotte tells me “drop dead”!

Dear Mr. Reinke:

Thank you for your comments regarding the fiscal year (FY) 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and the integration of women into the Selective Service.  I appreciate hearing from you.

On June 14, 2016, the U.S. Senate passed its version of the FY 2017 NDAA by a vote of 85-13.  With our troops in harm’s way confronting serious and growing threats to our nation, I was proud to vote in support of the NDAA, which authorizes roughly $602 billion in necessary defense spending.  As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and Chair of the Readiness and Management Support Subcommittee, I worked to include more than 42 provisions in the Senate-passed FY 2017 NDAA and associated Committee Report that will strengthen our national security and support those who serve our country, including at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), Pease Air National Guard Base, and in the New Hampshire National Guard.

The FY 2017 Senate-passed NDAA also includes a provision that would require all female citizens of the United States and females residing in the United States who attain the age of 18 years on or after January 1, 2018, to register for the Selective Service.  The Department of Defense has opened up all the combat billets for women who can meet the qualifications of those billets, and as a result, I believe women should now also register for the Selective Service.

As Chair of the Senate Armed Services Readiness and Management Support Subcommittee, I understand the importance of the Selective Service to our nation’s military readiness.  Please be assured that I will continue to closely monitor our nation’s military readiness, as well as any changes to the Selective Service.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me.  It is important for me to hear from you regarding the current issues affecting New Hampshire and our nation.  Please do not hesitate to be in touch again if I may be of further assistance.

Sincerely,
Signature
Kelly A. Ayotte
U. S. Senator

Argh! 

So I wrote to kill “Selective Service”, and she votes “FOR”.

Argh!

Senator Ayotte is still pushing her gun ban agenda. Her behavior is shameful considering that she took an oath to support and defend the Constitution and six years ago she promised to protect the civil right to be armed.

*** end quote ***

She continues to disappoint.

POLITICAL: One of the TARP-sters endorses HRC

Most Corrupt Bankster in U.S. Endorses Hillary Clinton
By Thomas DiLorenzo
June 27, 2016

*** begin quote ***

It’s hard to imagine a better endorsement of Donald Trump’s economic policies – whatever they may be, whenever he finds the time to explain them – than the recent endorsement of Hillary Clinton by former Goldman Sachs CEO and U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson.  As the man in charge of the biggest explosion of corporate welfare in world history – the “TARP” bailouts, he defined himself as a sworn enemy of capitalism and a socialist when it comes to the capital markets.  Socializing billions of dollars in investment bank, insurance company, and automobile industry losses with taxpayer dollars qualifies Paulson as deserving of the S-word label.  As such, Hillary Clinton may well have found a new political and financial soulmate.

*** end quote ***

The fellow who gave us TARP wants to keep the “music” going in this game of musical chairs.

Remember that TARP was originally passed as buying HOMEOWNER’S underwater mortgages and having them repay the Federal Gooferment in accordance with the original or relate terms. At least, that made some sense to keep folks in their homes. Somehow that morphed into a hand out all the Crony Capitalists. 

Argh!

Sorry, but I’m rooting for the rejection of HRC.

Picking Trump is like  choosing the prettiest horse in the glue factory coral.

But, if that’s what it takes to disrupt “the system”, then so be it.

A wise Persian king asked his advisers to bring him something that would make him happy when he was sad and vice versa. They eventually brought the king a ring on which is inscribed “This too shall pass.”

POLITICAL: State Militias as way to recapture lost State power

The Case for Restoring the State Militia System

*** begin quote ***

The state militias, which have largely been subsumed into the National Guard system since the First World War, were once the centerpiece of American defense. For most of the history of the republic, the federal army was small and concerned with the defense of borders and with providing a solid professional core of soldiers in the event of a major conflict. The majority of soldiers in such a war would be composed of members of the state militias.

*** end quote ***

It’s a interesting perspective that caused me to realize that this “militia” power has been stolen by the Federal Government from the individual States.

I’ve often thought that the 17th Amendment — the direct election of Senators for those from Gooferment Skrules — allowed for the growth of the Federal Gooferment thru unfunded mandates unchecked by the various State legislatures. 

At least, that was done via an amendment. Unlike what was done with the state militias / national guard, “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”, and the many un-Constitutional “Departments” and “Agencies”.

Argh!

POLITICAL: No US Money or Arms to Foreign States with Death Penalty for Gays

Letter from J. Neil Schulman

Barack Obama: No US Money or Arms to Foreign States with Death Penalty for Gays

I just created the petition “Barack Obama: No US Money or Arms to Foreign States with Death Penalty for Gays” and wanted to see if you could help by publishing this in The Libertarian Enterprise. The petition also goes to Rand Paul and Justin Amash.

Full text of the petition: 

We demand an immediate end to any U.S. taxpayer funding, military aid, or provision of military-grade weapons to any foreign State that has laws providing a death penalty for being gay or being part of any LGBT community.

My goal is to reach 100 signatures and I need your support. You can read more and sign the petition here

Thanks!

POLITICAL: How should Libertarians vote in the upcoming Presidential election

Hillary, Bernie, Donald, Gary: A Libertarian Perspective
By Walter E. Block
June 4, 2016

*** begin quote ***

I am glad you asked. Here is the plan. In states where either Clinton or Trump is leading by a wide margin, vote for, support Johnson. Trump either does not need our backing there or, it will do him little or no good in any case if he gets it. However, in purple states such as Florida or Ohio, in which the polls indicate a virtual tie between Mr. Pretty Good and Mrs. Evil, then and only then pile on in behalf of Donald. He will need every bit of sustenance we can give him on such occasions. Who to support financially? Both. Let us hedge our bets.

Sounds like a plan!

POLITICAL: $15/hour condemns minority youths to poverty

Elitist Arrogance
By Walter E. Williams
June 1, 2016

*** begin quote ***

President Barack Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus, black state and local politicians, and civil rights organizations are neither naive nor stupid. They have been made aware of the unemployment effects of the labor laws they support; however, they are part of a political coalition. In order to get labor unions, environmental groups, business groups and other vested interests to support their handout agenda and make campaign contributions, they must give political support to what these groups want. They must support minimum wage increases even though it condemns generations of black youths to high unemployment rates.

I can’t imagine what black politicians and civil rights groups are getting in return for condemning black youths to a high rate of unemployment and its devastating effects on upward economic mobility that makes doing so worthwhile, but then again, I’m not a politician.

 *** end quote ***

What kind of stupidity does it take to think that this is good policy?

Continuing to “legislate / regulate / demonstrate” entry level jobs out of existence is sheer madness.

Self-inflicted economic poverty of the whole society.

We need all “our” Human Resources operating a maximum efficiency. 

Argh!
