The Greeks Deserve To be Humiliated

Greece has been on the edge of default for a few years and has been asking for and receiving bailouts in the form of loans to help them through a crisis of their own making.

The Greeks have a generous benefit system that allows workers to retire young and receive a hefty percentage of their retirement. Couple this with countless other programs that can’t be afforded and you get a crisis.

When Greece was bailed out it failed to take any reasonable austerity measures to get on a path to sustainability. It keeps showing up hat in hand wanting even more money.

The members of the European Union (EU) have been in tense negotiations and it is not happy to be asked to shell out more money to a country that seems intent on continuing on the same path that got it to the brink of disaster.

A new deal is in the works and many Greeks are unhappy with it. They claim it is harsh and requires them to do too much. They claim it is humiliating.

It should be humiliating. You have a system that can’t be sustained and you ask for money to help you when it collapses and ten you continue doing the same thing that got you there. You ask for more and more while continuing to refuse reforms.

Then you are forced to agree to harsh measures and you claim it is not right and humiliating.

It is humiliating and it should be. You should be ashamed that you are led by people who ran your country into the ground. You should be ashamed that you continue to suck the life out of your economy by raping the treasury of ever dwindling resources while continuing a life of early retirement and generous pensions.

Other countries are not happy with being forced to bail you out once again. And considering how dire your circumstances are you had better agree to the terms and get your act together.

Americans, pay attention because we are well on our way to a default and we will be like Greece before you know it.

And we too should feel ashamed and humiliated for many of the same reasons.

Cave canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

Kenyans To Obama; Don’t Discuss Your Love Life

The folks in Obama’s homeland have a message for him. They want him to avoid the topic of homosexuality. I know it might be tough for Obama after he has worked so hard to promote the sodomites and since he thinks everyone should just do what he says but his homeland is having none of it.

It should surprise no one that Obama is a big supporter because he has always led from the rear…

Cave canem!

Looks Like Trump Is On To Something

Before I start I do not support Donald Trump for president. I have not made up my mind as to whom I will support but I have eliminated some folks. Trump is on the list that I can’t support because of his anti-Second Amendment views.

But he does have some views that are receiving a lot of attention right now. His views on illegal immigration appear to be spot on and those views have caused the establishment politicians from both parties to come out with sabers drawn.

Trump is correct when he says that rapists and murderers are coming here. He would be absolutely correct to say that 100% of the people who come here illegally are criminals because they broke the law to get here.

The establishment can’t have any of this. This will put in jeopardy the voters liberals need and the cheap labor establishment Republicans want.

The reality is that our immigration system is broken and the last thing we need are policies that allow people to stay and encourage more to come. Illegal aliens are causing all kinds of problems here and deporting them does not seem to matter because they come right back. Without a nearly impenetrable wall they will continue to come back. They do not mind being arrested and sent home because they know they can come back.

Others just game the system by going to sanctuary cities where they know they will be protected.

FUN FACT: All of the Democrats running for the presidency support sanctuary cities.

A young woman taking pictures on a pier in San Francisco was murdered by an illegal who has a number of felony convictions and has been deported five times. This man was released by the local sheriff because of the sanctuary policies of San Francisco.

This senseless murder could have been prevented if the government did its job and if cities were not allowed to offer sanctuary. How the hell do they get to go against federal law like this when Arizona was slapped down for upholding federal law because it is not their job, it belongs to the feds?

An illegal in Texas who had been deported four times beat his wife to death with a hammer.

Why was he here?

The latest news involves an illegal who had been deported six times. He was the driver in a hit and run that injured two children and an adult. He admitted to being high on marijuana at the time.

This latest happened in Arizona. Perhaps if the federal government had not sued that state over its immigration laws (which mirrored federal laws) this illegal alien would not have been here to harm these three people.

Obama’s plan on immigration is working but only with respect to getting millions more Democrat voters into the country. In every other aspect it is failing the very people he is charged with protecting.

But to people like Obama it does not matter. He and his family have armed guards and his children go to private school that also has armed guards.

The incident in San Francisco happened in Nancy Pelosi’s neck of the woods. She could not care any less because it was not her daughter that was shot down.

It is time to get a handle on immigration and shut down the flow of illegals.

Trump does not have my support for president but he is correct on the issue of immigration and the Republican field would be wise to listen and learn.

Then again, given the recent history of Republicans begging us to elect them so they can carry out our wishes only to stab us in our collective backs it is quite possible the candidates will tell us what we want to hear with no intention of addressing the issue.

It is long past time for the states to ignore the federal government and conduct their own business by arresting and holding illegals (while not infringing on federal authority in the matter). It is an absolute must for states to ignore the feds on items that belong solely to the states.

Cave canem!

Happy Independence Day 2015

It has been about a week or so since I have posted. I was enjoying some down time with my spousal unit playing golf and relaxing (playing golf and relaxing are not necessarily the same thing).

Today we celebrate our independence from an oppressive government. Given what our government is now doing to us from all three branches the idea of independence is more important today than it was hundreds of years ago. We are being attacked from all sides and the tyranny grows daily. I wonder if it is only a matter of time before the same situation occurs in this time as it did back then.

But today we celebrate the bravery of a small portion of the population that claimed enough is enough and took matters into their own hands.

Let us celebrate those who gave us this freedom and nation and let us continually oppose those in our present government who would enslave us once again.

Before you head out to what you are going to do please take the time to view this Washington Post article to see what those who fight for us are doing while we are here at home.

God bless and may we preserve this fragile nation…

Take the time today to read the Declaration of Independence and think about what they were going through and then think about how their grievances fit today.

John Roberts: The Umpire Strikes Out

There is no doubt Chief Justice John Roberts is an intelligent man. He can cite and discuss legal cases without notes and he is well versed. These fact make his two decisions in the Affordable Care Act (previously known as Obamacare but now to be known as SCOTUScare) quite perplexing. Roberts basically rewrote the law and twisted logic as well as stepping out of his area of responsibility to ensure that the law formerly known as Obamacare survived.

When the ACA was being forced on us the Obama Regime said that the fee for not getting insurance was a penalty and NOT a tax. Obama chided George Stephanopoulos when George said the penalty seemed to fit the dictionary definition of a tax. Of course Obama was lying then because he knew it was actually a tax.

But the Regime called it a penalty and defended it as such to the public. The Democrats called it a penalty in the law and told their constituents that it was not a tax. Mr. Gruber, the POS who helped with this said it had to be called a penalty or it would have never passed and that the Regime depended on the stupidity of the public to get it passed.

When the Regime went to court it argued that the penalty was really a tax for the purpose of arguing in court and that anything to the contrary was just silly.

Despite overwhelming evidence John Roberts sided with the left wing of the court and rewrote the legislation to make the penalty a tax and within the authority of Congress. He upheld the law by legislating from the bench.

Fast forward to now. There is a portion of the ACA that says subsidies will only be available to those who get insurance from exchanges established by the state. There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that this sentence means the individual states. This is how it was intended and the Democrats along with Goebbels Gruber even told us that it would be in the best interest of the people if states set up exchanges so that the people could get subsidies. Given the straight forward language and what they said there is no doubt what it was supposed to be. This sentence was the subject of a Supreme Court case and once again Roberts sided with the liberal wing and rewrote the legislation. Roberts read the minds of those in Congress (Democrats only) and concluded that they really meant that state and federal government.

Roberts disgraced himself and his court and his legacy will be one of failure. I do not like the left wing right wing idea of a court. Courts are supposed to be impartial and rule on the law. Roberts made himself a legislator along with the lefties and rewrote the law to once again save Obama.

After Roberts knelt before Obama and pleased him there is no doubt now how he will vote on gay marriage. This issue should be left to the states and Roberts made a big deal of states rights when he was nominated but he will vote with the rainbow crowd and swallow hard for Obama.

It seems to me that Roberts must have been neglected as a child. His parents probably did not love him and daddy was probably never around. Roberts appears to need the approval of others and he seems to go out of his way to get the approval of Obama, his closet lover.

John Roberts once believed, or at least he said he did, that the judiciary was there to interpret not to make up the laws. Roberts basically stated that it is not his job to play the game or make the rules but to make sure those playing the game are following he rules. He did that when he compared judges to baseball umpires: “[I]t’s my job to call balls and strikes, and not to pitch or bat.”

Roberts has gone from being just the umpire to also being on the rules committee. Instead of just making sure others follow the rules he is now changing them to suit his master’s needs. Indeed, the umpire has struck out.

Justice Scalia put it most succinctly when he stated in his dissent (it is well worth your time to read the dissent. Scalia basically spells out how it should work in a legal and logical way and he holds little back with regard to how he views his colleagues in the majority):

Under all the usual rules of interpretation, in short, the Government should lose this case. But normal rules of interpretation seem always to yield to the overriding principle of the present Court: The Affordable Care Act must be saved. Court Ruling

Scalia is correct. This court has a mandate and it is to protect and save the law now known as SCOTUScare. Obama put Kagan and Sotomayor on the court because they are not jurists they are activists. They do not care what the Constitution says or what is lawful or right as long as their liberal views and desires are taken care of. They are there to ensure the liberal agenda (I should call it the Communist agenda since Jarrett and Obama were raised by Commies and are commies themselves) is upheld the law and the Constitution be damned. Add those two to Buzzy Ginsburg, Breyer and wishy-washy Kennedy and you have the make up of a court that ignores the rule of law. When Roberts joins the mix it equals the downfall of society and the furtherance of communism.

God help them all when the day comes for them to be held accountable. It will be quite unpleasant indeed.
