Random Thoughts About Current Events

Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh was given special power by the State legislature when it passed legislation taking away the governor’s discretion for legal action and giving it directly to the AG. This was done in order to allow Frosh to sue Trump over his immigration Executive Order. The EO was perfectly legal and Constitutional but liberals like Frosh are not keen on following the law or the Constitution (the Supreme Law of the land and coincidentally, the state of Maryland) as evidence by Frosh and his cronies in Annapolis with regard to gun control. These cretins disregard the constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms and don’t bat an eye. In any event, Frosh took to his new powers so he could sue the Trump Administration.

Now AG Frosh is begging the federal government not to decapitate Obamacare subsidies in the next budget (or continuing resolution as the case may be) because it will take away a lot of federal money that goes to drug addiction treatment. I don’t think Republicans in Congress, and President Trump in particular, would keep funding just for lil ole Brian Frosh and his concerns BUT perhaps Frosh should have thought about the consequences before he sued the President over a perfectly legal Executive Order. If it actually came down to should we or shouldn’t we because of Maryland do you think President Trump would be more or less likely to capitulate?

That also brings us to the real insanity. Why should a state have to beg the federal government for funding? States generate a lot of money. Even states that have no income or sales taxes generate income. Why should those states send all this money to the federal government only to beg for it later on? States should be responsible for their own existence and the federal government should only be involved in things that it is supposed to be involved in under the Constitution. If this actually happened we could shrink the size of the federal government and states would be more sovereign.

But Frosh and his ilk would rather get on their knees (a familiar position) and beg for money. Screw them. Cut every dollar that goes for Obamacare.

Speaking of Obamacare subsidies it looks like the Democrats in Congress are demanding that the budget or CR contain an extension of Obamacare subsidies. You see, Obamacare is failing and the Democrats want to pump more money into it so they are claiming there will be no budget if it does not get included. These morons will always threaten a shutdown if they do not get what they want. Even when they are the minority party they act like they are in charge.

To complicate matters further President Trump wants money for a border wall included in the budget. Democrats (including a liberal moron I work with) say “I thought the Mexicans were going to pay for it”. They will but we need up front money at first and yes, there are plenty of ways to make them pay.

The way I see it the Republicans, the ones supposed to be the majority, should take out Obamacare money and add border wall money and tell Democrats that they must take it or leave it. If all Republicans vote for it and Democrats do not then it will be they who are responsible for the shutdown of government. Perhaps Republicans can use parliamentary tricks to get it passed. Maybe they can introduce the border wall and Obamacare monies in separate standalone bills and they can all vote on them separately. No matter what, now is not the time to compromise with these morons.

Before anyone (particularly anyone from Congress) tells me how urgent this is and how we are almost out of time let me remind you that these pukes have been on vacation for two weeks. They got back last night and today and they now have three days to get a budget. If it was so damned important or so urgent they should have stayed in town and gotten it done. Short on time is no excuse for them not doing what they said they would do.

Looks like there is opposition to a border wall now (by the same Democrats who voted for one in the early part of this century). My how times have changed because we have a person in office who is actually working to get the wall. Voting for one when there is never any intention of building one or when the can can be kicked down the road is different than actually doing it.

President Trump is working to get a wall built. Those who claim we can’t do it use Google and search Great Wall of China or Berlin Wall. Those should show it can be done. We have illegals in this country and they are sucking up valuable resources. They take welfare and other things like healthcare (which Obama said they would not – You Lie!) and they are a menace to society. You will not read this in many places because the MSM calls them immigrants and always leaves the word ILLEGAL out of the equation. This is a deliberate attempt to make it seem normal to be here illegally.

It is not.

In California the morons there have special driver’s licenses for ILLEGAL immigrants and now those illegals claim they are worried the feds will use the database to deport those here illegally. The government SHOULD use that database to get rid of people here illegally. Just because California is breaking the law does not mean the feds should ignore it. The state assures illegals they will not turn over that information to the feds. I imagine a subpoena for it would do the trick. In any event, if you are here illegally you are breaking the law and if you are found and deported then that is YOUR problem.

Illegal immigration is down since Donald Trump took office. Now it is time to build a wall and clean up the rest of the illegal immigration mess.

It is unfortunate that we have so many liberals running around mucking thinks up. I do like seeing morons like Frosh begging after spitting in the face of the President. I also like how Democrats warn of poison pills and upsetting the budget process only a few short years after their take it or leave it approach to governing.

Screw them. Go for broke and go for it all and if they do not vote for it make sure the public knows that Democrats refused to vote for the budget.

On a side note I bet if government does shutdown (unlikely because they will pass a short CR to keep working things out) the President will not close things that are self-funding or unmanned like the petulant one Obama did.
