President Obama’s May 19th speech on the Middle East sounded like something a high-schooler would have given to win a prize in a politically correct oration contest. It showed a total lack of knowledge of the historic reality of the area for the last hundred years. It was full of empty clichés about “democracy.” What he could have and should have told the Arab countries is that, after 63 years, it was time to end their boycott and hostility toward Israel and establish normal diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. He certainly should have expected Iraq, liberated from despotism by America, to establish normal diplomatic relations with Israel.
Remember when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got all wound up in March 2010 about the passage of ObamaCare and told the assembled conventioneers at the National Association of Counties that the bill’s reforms were going to make healthcare in America “very, very exciting”?
The Republican conceives of his party as the party of conservatism, the Constitution, and “limited government.” For this reason, he loathes the so-called “RINO” (Republican In Name Only), the faux conservative who comes like a wolf in sheep’s clothing. At the same time, however, on those all too rare occasions when a genuine conservative, Constitutionalist comes along, the “conservative” Republican refuses to support that for which he claimed to ardently wish.
A good friend of mine was enraptured upon hearing that Donald Trump might run for the presidency. And he was shattered when it was disclosed a few days ago that Trump has decided to stay out of the race. Before my friend sang Trump’s praises, the object of his enthusiasm was Mitt Romney.
I am a fan of hanging the Ten Commandments (and the other great fundamentals of the Judeo-Christian moral system) back up in every public school showcase, every “hall of liberty,” or more to the point, in every public classroom right beside the American Flag so that they might be memorized, discussed, and lived by teachers and students alike as students and teachers once were free to do … and did do, because they understood the connection between a truly religious and moral people and liberty.
The essence of Gangster Government was summed by a comment President Barack Hussein Obama made in October, 2010:
We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.
Prices at gas pumps are at some of the highest levels ever and rising. Americans want answers. In particular they want the names and numbers of those to blame. To answer that question perhaps they should simply consult the phone book or look in the mirror. Because the main culprits in the rising gas prices aren't necessarily members of OPEC, but the American people who support policies that block new drilling and the building of new refineries on American soil. It's that simple.
“The United States may have run up a huge debt, but it is not a poor country…,” the Washington Post announced on Monday as Our Rulers hit their credit-limit. “The federal government owns roughly 650 million acres of land, close to a third of the nation’s total land mass. Plus a million buildings. Plus electrical utilities like the Tennessee Valley Authority. And an interstate highway system.”
