No, You Can’t

In a 2-1 decision, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Texas-based federal judge’s injunction blocking the administration’s immigration initiative. Lawless Executive action by Obama, and his DHS and DOJ thwarted. Maybe they should stop wasting their time and our money trying to end run around the laws already established by Congress. The ruling …

What Will It Take?

1.8 billion, that’s how much Baltimore received from the Obama stimulus. Of this amount, 467.1 million went to education; 206.1 million to the environment; 24 million to “family”; 16.1 million to infrastructure; 15.2 million to transportation; 11.9 million to housing; and 3.1 million to job training. Uh-huh, seems throwing more taxpayer money at the problems …

Who “decides”?

The “fix” is in at the IRS. The FBI has decided there was/is no wrong doing at the IRS (before the investigation is over). The officials said investigators didn’t find the kind of political bias or “enemy hunting” that would amount to a violation of criminal law. Instead, what emerged during the probe was evidence …

Transparent Timing

Who’s up for an NBC mini-series based on the life of Hillary Clinton?  That’s Diane Lane with Shrillary who will be playing her in the series. *snort* “We have to think about the timing of it,” he said. “She’s probably not going to declare her candidacy for two more years. This could well have aired …

There you go again…..

Pivoting, pirouetting, and posturing, BO gets back to the economy today, focusing his laser like attention because….well….Benghazi, IRS and a slew of scandals. Not much has worked out well for the erstwhile most brilliant newer deal- FDR- Lincolnesque- Preezy- evah.  Construction and the housing market are huge indicators of how well the economy is working. …

Friday Bits and Pieces

Hope everyone had a great 4th! I know BO and MO had an evening of fun watching the fireworks from the White House roof…   That’s MO on the right sans wigs and extensions. She doesn’t really have to ‘cut’ her bangs, just buy a different wig with shorter bangs or, better yet, just wear …

Busy days of Spring

Cleaning winter out of the yard was a longer process this year but, it’s finally finished. All that is left is cutting the bamboo down so it will flourish. Spring has finally made it to the North Coast! Deciding to take a much needed break from the crazies on Capitol Hill and just enjoy the …

“Fair and balanced approach”

That’s what Preezy wanted and he got it. While the private sector has suffered greatly under this administration with tax hikes, draconian regs, rising gas prices and food prices, federal workers seem to have been exempt. DC is awash in money, while the states and local governments have had to cut back. Federal workers will …

Friday Bits and Pieces

Mo is not “surprised” by her notoriety. “Supporting the arts”? That didn’t fit into her lifestyle until she got her own taxpayer ATM. Mrs. Obama acknowledged that she and President Barack Obama have added appeal, and perhaps sometimes  are subject to extra scrutiny, because they are the first black family in the White House but …

Our Vindictive President

BO is promising to bring the pain to average Americans if he doesn’t get his way. His minions are out and about making threats to the general public, using his bully pulpit to terrorize. Instead of “smarter spending cuts”, which have been offered to ‘His Majesty’, he prefers to wander around the country threatening. I …
