Worker Got What He Voted For

Information technology workers went before the Senate Judiciary Committee on immigration reform and provided testimony that the US needed to protect skilled US workers. Many testified anonymously because of agreements they signed with employers.

One such worker testified that he lost his job when he was replaced by a foreigner with an H-1B visa. The article claims he is one of more than 400 workers from the same company, Southern California Edison (SCE), who lost jobs to foreigners.

This worker claims to have voted for Obama but is disillusioned over losing his job because of the president’s immigration policies.

“I’ve paid my taxes, obeyed the laws and have been a good citizen supporting the community with donations,” the former SCE worker wrote. “I voted for President Obama and was appalled that he implemented a rule change, which allows work permits to H-1B spouses. My future votes will only go to candidates that support reforms to the H-1B visa program that preserve the American worker.” National Review

Looks like this person got what he voted for. I feel sorry for him and others like him but something tells me he is not the only affected worker who voted for Obama (and other Democrats). Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform the nation. He apologized for America and he discussed his ideas about immigrants long before he was elected. People knew, or should have known, what they were getting.

These are skilled workers who were replaced by other skilled workers who happen to be immigrants here legally. Imagine how the unskilled (or low skilled) workers who will be replaced by millions of ILLEGAL immigrants will feel.

Obama lacked experience, was a community agitator and catered to illegals before he got elected. These folks are supposed to be smart so they should have seen what was going on.

They probably did and did not worry about it figuring it would not affect them personally. They are like all the people who supported Obamacare but are now unhappy because it is affecting them, something they figured (because Obama promised) would not happen.

So all I can say is elections have consequences and if you had paid attention during the campaigns you would not be before the Senate begging them to rein in an out of control anti American tyrant.

Some Republicans Will Actually Help Rahm

Rahm Emanuel is in a political battle to win reelection as Mayor of Chicago. Emanuel did not get enough votes to win outright and now he is pitted against a relative unknown challenger in the runoff.

Rahm is as partisan as they get. He hates Republicans and anyone else who is not on board with his socialist/progressive agenda. I have never heard him say anything positive about those who disagree with him and he is all in favor of a scorched earth policy to get what he wants while destroying those who stand in his way.

While it is not highly publicized, Rahm needs Republican support to win his reelection. He needs Republican voters to vote for him or he will most likely lose. He needs those he would just as soon ship to another planet to save his worthless butt from a humiliating defeat.

And the worst thing of all is there are Republicans who will help him.

There are certainly Republican voters who view him as the lesser of two evils and will cast their ballot in his favor. The lesser of two evils is still evil so just stay home.

Republican Senator Mark Kirk has already put his support behind Emanuel saying Chicago would become like Detroit if he loses. I get that Kirk is a US Senator representing Illinois but Chicago is heading to being like Detroit no matter what.

Couldn’t Kirk just keep his mouth shut? Hey Mark, do you think Emanuel will reciprocate and back you against a Democrat challenger? He will kiss you and leave cab fare on the table on his way out.

Emanuel has also garnered the support of conservative Republicans from different organizations.

Why are they helping this guy? He should be left to live or die (politically speaking) on his own.

Perhaps it is because in the overall scheme of things politics trumps party and country when all the players are working toward the same goals.

Sure, they all fight and call each other names but in the overall scheme of things politicians and organizations of both major parties are taking us to the same destructive place. Democrats are doing it in the fast lane and Republicans in the slow lane but in the end they will both reach the same destination.

We need to get people like Emanuel OUT of office even if his replacement is not any better. If the guy can’t cut it they can replace him in the next election but Emanuel will be GONE.

It would be strange if Emanuel wins and only because of Republican support. It would then be fun to watch as Emanuel returns the favor by promptly screwing them over.

Pop the popcorn it looks like the fun will soon begin.

Israel Beats Obama With a Bibi

It is no secret the Obama regime used taxpayer money and had its interest groups in (as in go to) Israel in order to influence their election. Obama and his regime do not like Israel and they especially do not like Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu. He is a strong leader who makes Obama look weak and ineffective.

The election looked too close to call right up until it was held yesterday. Pools showed a tight race and that Netanyahu might get beaten. Obama and his toadies were no doubt salivating at the idea of Netanyahu losing. They invested a lot of time and money in defeating him and it looked like they might just do it.

But the people of Israel had a different opinion. They showed up at the polls and their votes will no doubt lead to Netanyahu continuing as Prime Minister with an overwhelming victory.

The left in America are not happy. They wanted Netanyahu gone so he would stop making their messiah Obama look bad. The petulant folks in the White House could not muster the decency to congratulate Netanyahu on his victory. White House aide David Simas would only congratulate the people on having an election.

I do not know how American Jews view Bibi’s victory because so many of them are liberals who support the Democrat party. They continue to support the people who want nothing more than to see an end of the Jewish state. It seems self destructive and given the history of the Jewish people one would not expect that. I pray they wake up and abandon those who are not their true friends.

In any event, Netanyahu won and I congratulate him on his victory. He is a statesman and a true leader. While Obama spent his youth getting stoned Bibi spent his serving in the military and he is a real man’s man. No wonder the metro sexual in chief does not like him.

I am happy to see Obama and his flying monkeys (Wizard of Oz reference for the race hustlers) were not able to influence the results. They should not have been involved in the election and if they only lost their money it would be great but they funneled taxpayer dollars into their anti Netanyahu battle.

Now America, it is your turn to elect a true leader.

2016 fast approaches.

Will Big Brother Ever Leave Us Alone?

The EPA is working to get hotels to monitor how long people take showers. Yep, the shower is now the target of the EPA and while it is starting at hotels how long before some unelected moron in that agency decides to require all homes to have a device to monitor how long we are in the shower?

Yes, taking showers wastes water. That is the cost of being clean. Filth and disease cost a heck of a lot more than water. You pay for the water and the EPA should mind its own business.

The idea is to devise some item that can transmit water usage through a wireless connection so people can be educated on how much water they use.

I get it that some folks waste water and hotels use a lot of it. I also know they use a lot of water cleaning towels and bed linen even when it does not need to be cleaned. No matter how many times I hang my towels up they still replace them. But I digress…

In any event, it seems rather invasive to have someone monitor how long you are in the shower. It really is none of their business.

The EPA says the average shower is 8 minutes and they want people to cut 1 minute off that time. They also suggest people take Navy showers to get the time down to about 5 minutes.

If I wanted to take Navy showers I would have, you know, joined the Navy.

Perhaps the EPA should concern itself with real issues like how its policies and the pressure from environmental groups has left California with about a year’s worth of water. Perhaps they can remove the stupid restrictions so the people there can get water for things other than showers like CROPS.

I am really tired of the government involving itself in every aspect of our lives.

Will Big Brother EVER just leave us alone?

Just a note. This is not something that will happen right away. They do not have the technology to do this but are wasting a lot of money to obtain it…

A Glimmer Of Hope From McConnell?

Mitch McConnell addressed the looming debt ceiling and said there would be no government shutdown and that the ceiling would be raised. Anyone who reads this blog regularly (and I know all three of you) know how I feel about the debt ceiling. We need to stop raising it and start lowering the amount of debt we have by cutting spending.

It is as simple as that even though liberals and big government RINOs will tell you that it is not easy and there is too much to pay for. The only reason there is too much to pay for is because they keep spending too much.

If your pipes in the house break and you have sewage piling up you don’t go to the top of the house and keep raising the ceiling. If you do you just end up with more crap. The sensible solution is to stop the crap from piling up and then get rid of it as quickly as possible.

In Obama’s time in office the national debt has doubled from 9 TRILLION dollars to 18 TRILLION dollars. Obama has accumulated more debt than all other presidents COMBINED. What do we have to show for this? Nearly 100 million people no longer participating in the labor force and around 50 million people on food stamps. We have an entitlement society full of people encouraged to live off the government (read the taxpayer) as a way of life.

Democrats built that (Obama made it worse).

McConnell gave a glimmer of hope with the debt ceiling issue. He said that they would likely attach legislation they want to pass to the debt ceiling bill. This is an action I suggested in an earlier post.

Here is what McConnell had to say:

Mr. McConnell, Kentucky Republican, said on the CBS program “Face the Nation” on Sunday that Republicans may try to attach some of their priorities to the debate but won’t force another shutdown showdown as it has in the past. Washington Times

The issue I have is he already gave in by stating there would be no showdown. He will likely push something they all agree on, pass it and slap themselves on the back while telling us what a great job they did. In reality the spineless will fold.

I think McConnell and Boehner need to put out what they want and start NOW to tell the public that they are going to do it and if Democrats block it THEY will be responsible for the shutdown. If he has to, since this is a BUDGET item he can make it so only 51 votes are needed. Then he can pass it and force Obama to veto.

Then the shutdown will be on Obama’s head.

This is what I would like to see but I lack confidence that these two so called leaders can muster the testosterone needed to do it. They can’t sack up because they lack a ball sack.
