Will The Same Rules Apply?

A man in Maryland was sentenced to three years for slashing a dog’s throat.

Forty-four-year-old Lamont Coston was sentenced to three years in jail for an animal abuse case in Baltimore County where a German Shepherd was killed. The judge suspended all but 18 months. Coston will be spending the next year and a half in the Baltimore County lock-up. FOX 45 Baltimore

A Baltimore police officer slashed the throat of a dog and he did so when it was not necessary. The officer, Jeffrey Bolger, claims he did this to put the dog out of its misery after the neck loop, according to him, left the dog near dead. But as the story reports:

That statement about Bolger’s big heart heavily contradicts Bolger’s statement prior to the slashing where he was overheard saying “I’m going to gut this (expletive) thing.” The Free Thought Project

**The officer cleared in this story is the one that held the dog down. The one who slashed its throat awaits his day in court.

The officer will stand trial later and there are plenty of others who have condemned his action. The question is, will he receive the same punishment as Lamont Coston or will his cruelty to the animal be ruled as justified?

Officers should be held to a higher standard but that is rarely the case.

We will see how this all plays out. If I had to bet on it I would say he walks but stranger things have happened.

Shorter Dems: Save Us From Ourselves

The Democrats forced Obamacare on all of us. They wanted to take over the health care in this nation in an effort to further control people so they pushed through a massive bill that no one read. Pelosi told everyone they had to pass it to see what was in it (it should work the other way around for those who are as brain dead as she).

So this huge bill was pushed through and Obama signed it into law. Then the problems started. It was challenged in court and in an amazing act of judicial malfeasance, John Roberts cast the deciding vote to uphold the law after he rewrote it (figuratively) from the bench.

After that more and more of the bad things popped up and began to affect people who supported it. Obama’s lies were exposed and people were getting screwed. Things were so bad Democrats lost control of the House and then the Senate.

There is currently a challenge to the law that could unravel it. Democrats tried to coerce states into setting up exchanges by offering subsidies only to those in states with exchanges. They discussed this carrot and stick tactic over and over when pushing the law. A number of states did not set up the exchanges so the feds did (which they can under the law). The feds then allowed the subsidies which it is not allowed to do under the law. The words are clear in the law (maybe they should have read it first) because this is what they intended. Now they claim it was never intended to be that way.

If the law is upheld as written, in other words if John Roberts (or any others for that matter) does not again legislate from the bench, then it could unravel the entire thing.

This is all going on as other parts of the law are beginning to take place. There were items that phased in and now that they are getting close to starting it is getting clear they are not good. One such thing involves putting companies with 51-100 employees in the more costly small group market. This will cause all kinds of trouble for these companies. It is set to take effect in 2016.

A number of Senate Democrats have spoken up and are begging Obama to delay this. They are not worried that it will harm business though they claim this is their concern. They claim they want the market to gradually adapt before this takes place (it has been in effect for 5 years now). In other words, they want to delay the screwing the companies will get so they can get accustomed to the violation.

Here is the real deal; the Democrats are worried that this will cause turmoil and they will face backlash from the voters. They are concerned that the problems will be used to batter their party during the next presidential election. Since only Democrats voted for it only Democrats are responsible for it. They know they could lose the White House and more seats in Congress.

This is ALL they are concerned with. This is the only reason Obama delayed the things he did, so they would be after his last election.

We need to get rid of the entire law. Democrats will not do that.

But we should not let them continue to delay to save their sorry butts. They loved it so much when they forced it on us it is time to make them suffer through the problems they caused.

It will be painful for everyone but pain is often the best teacher and there are a lot of liberals who need a lesson.

Will Anyone On The Left Hold Hillary Accountable?

Hillary Clinton is a typical progressive who, like her former boss, believes the ends justify the means and that anything she does in pursuit of liberal ideology is OK. How dare anyone try to hold her accountable. Is this some kind of vast right wing conspiracy?

In true liberal style Hillary blamed a vast right wing conspiracy for the uproar over her husband’s inability to keep his private parts off other women. Liberals always blame others.

Clinton used a private email server to conduct business when she was the Secretary of State. There is no doubt whatsoever that she did this to avoid scrutiny and so that she could scrub the emails before they were ever released. She circumvented (and more likely broke) the law so she could not be held accountable for what she wrote.

There were 18.5 minutes of erased recordings in the Nixon tapes (and there is evidence that was an error by the secretary) and he was forever branded a crook. Hillary has done much worse and she has defenders from the left who claim this is much ado about nothing.

Yes, there are those who are using servergate to derail her as the front runner but the fact she is still a frontrunner says a lot about what liberals are willing to allow in order to keep power and to keep big government growing.

Hillary asserted that she did not break any laws and that she made sure her emails were addressed to at least one State Department email address so they could be captured and archived.

Turns out that this is not true (shocked face) as it has now been disclosed that she sent information to others working with her to their PRIVATE email addresses which means those items were not archived.

My good friend Alan West reports on this here.

In addition to Hillary breaking the law there are additional concerns that her server was not secure and that it was vulnerable to many attacks. There is evidence (though no one has confirmed) that a hacktivist group successfully infiltrated her server. Images of emails allegedly sent by her have been released to the interwebs.

She lied about many things and I am willing to bet (I am certain enough to say I know) she discussed sensitive, and likely classified, information through her private address.

The next place Hillary occupies should not be the White House. It should be a cell in a federal penitentiary.

How fitting it would be if the wife of Bill Clinton ended up in a penal institute…

US Has World’s Best Life Expectancy

I know it is hard to believe that the US has the best life expectancy in the world but it does and I will show how in just a moment. First, what is life expectancy?

Life expectancy is a statistical measure of how long a person will live. There are many factors like year of birth, current age, and sex but more developed nations have higher life expectancy (of course the information is only as good as the data provided).

As of 2012 the World Health Organization reports the US ranks 36th out of 193 nations with an overall expectancy of 79.8 years.

This is all wrong and the US is actually number one. No other nation can boast about having as many people alive that are over 112 years of age.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, the United States has 6.5 MILLION people who are older than 112. This is according to the federal government’s own Social Security Administration. The SSA shows that 6.5 MILLION people in this nation are over 112 and a few thousand of the people have dates of birth that are prior to the US Civil War!

These 6.5 million SS numbers are active and being used each and every day for credit cards, purchases, loans, jobs, you name it. How in the name of all that is sacred could the US be 36th in the world when nearly 2% of its population is older than 112?

Now I know what you are thinking. You think that some evil doers have stolen these numbers and are using them illegally. If that is the case why does the government not go after the people using the numbers (or report them as inactive so they can’t be used)? They can track the numbers so they must know where the people using them are located and if they know where they are but have not gone after them then those folks must be using them legally, right?

Otherwise the government would have to admit that it is incapable of running this program and it is rife with fraud. That would unravel this idea that government can do it all and should run all aspects of our lives. They would never admit that, now would they?

I am sure the numbers are being used illegally but since our government has not put an end to this it must feel confident that these people are legit.

And since this has not been corrected the government must report these numbers to the WHO so our life expectancy rate can be corrected to show us the longest living people on the planet.

To do otherwise would admit incompetency and we know government can’t do that if it wants to take over every aspect of our lives.

One final thought. These are the same people who will be running your health care…

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.
