The ‘Spite House’
Preezy is coming in at a 37% approval rating. He richly deserves less but, the “true believers” are still betting on the ever fictitious “hope and change”. Civil disobedience is on the rise, Americans have a habit of correcting government overreach. Now, BO says he’s “willing to talk” as long as he gets what he wants from the R-words.
Bo is nothing more than a “tin-pot dictator” according to Ed Driscoll at PJ Media
Gestapo tactics at Yellowstone have foreign tourists terrified along with their very angry American counterparts.
Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1. For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.
The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest. [snip]
The bus stopped along a road when a large herd of bison passed nearby, and seniors filed out to take photos. Almost immediately, an armed ranger came by and ordered them to get back in, saying they couldn’t “recreate.” The tour guide, who had paid a $300 fee the day before to bring the group into the park, argued that the seniors weren’t “recreating,” just taking photos.
“She responded and said, ‘Sir, you are recreating,’ and her tone became very aggressive,” Vaillancourt said.
The seniors quickly filed back onboard and the bus went to the Old Faithful Inn, the park’s premier lodge located adjacent to the park’s most famous site, Old Faithful geyser. That was as close as they could get to the famous site — barricades were erected around Old Faithful, and the seniors were locked inside the hotel, where armed rangers stayed at the door.
“They looked like Hulk Hogans, armed. They told us you can’t go outside,” she said. “Some of the Asians who were on the tour said, ‘Oh my God, are we under arrest?’ They felt like they were criminals.”
Looks as if some journalists are coming to their senses. Why the Reviled Tea Party Was Right, not just about Obamacare, but getting our fiscal house in order.
In the midst of the economic crisis, the government went on a spending spree, shelling out hundreds of billions for TARP, Cash for Clunkers, the Stimulus – the list seemed endless. Our nation’s debt and deficits soared; the financial crisis became a fiscal crisis.And then came Obamacare. President Obama’s signature healthcare bill promised even higher deficits (no one but Paul Krugman believed you could provide free healthcare to 30 million people and save money), more government intrusion, and possible chaos. The Tea Party was born.
and this from American Thinker;
The former laughter and ridicule heaped at the GOP has turned to silence. It turns out that Republicans were right after all. They tried doing the right thing for all the American people, despite being demonized and viciously attacked. “I was laughing at Boehner — until the mail came today,” Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare.
“I really don’t like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family’s pocket each year, that’s otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy.”
As Winston Churchill so wisely observed, “socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
But despite its supporters’ hopes, the 2010 legislation was fiscally reckless, markedly increasing the government’s already-unsustainable health spending commitments at a time of record deficits. Three years later, the fiscal harm stemming from the ACA is as bad as-and even worse than-many experts predicted. The problem lies with the nature of the law itself, promising trillions in new government benefits while relying on dubious financing mechanisms. These problems were not only foreseeable, they were indeed widely foreseen.
I have been very busy the last few days helping out a Sudanese (legal immigrants) family. Mika is a teacher, they have spent 11 years under refugee status in Kenya. His wife lost her first husband to Bashir. Unlike the illegal aliens, who are placed above the legal immigrants, they are having some difficulty in understanding why they have to keep jumping through hoops for the Fed. Mika doesn’t understand why the illegals don’t have to jump through the same hoops and why the same demands he has to fulfill aren’t required of them. Mika is being forced to take a GED class, his teaching credentials are not accepted, nor his educational background. Believe it or not, he thinks black Americans are more racist than whites because they treat real black Afrikaners like outcasts and feel superior to them. Who knew? According to him, the loathsome Al Shabaab has taken over 25% of the Kenyan government.
Which brings me to this; Union Boss: Enforcing Law, Deporting Illegal Immigrants a ‘Moral Tragedy’
National Education Association (NEA) executive director John Stocks decried law enforcement efforts to enforce United States immigration laws by deporting illegal immigrants in remarks at a union-sponsored rally on the National Mall on Tuesday. [snip]
“Every day in America, thousands of students are denied the American dream because of their legal status,” Stocks said. “Every day in America thousands of students don’t know if they will come home to find their parents. This is a moral tragedy, an injustice to the more than 3 million members of my union, the National Education Association.”
The real tragedy is acknowledging illegal aliens instead of the law. They are criminals, not victims. As far as I am concerned they should be deported, along with their children, sisters and brothers and, cousins by the dozens, back to their own countries. No matter which country they come from, they have broken the law. Using the National Mall for a demonstration for “amnesty” while our own people are being blocked and Barry-caded from entry makes me despise them and those Congress Critters who joined them even more.
