Dumb Ideas and Actions

Heinrich was doing his Toastmasters thing the other day, making an 'important' speech to an empty room. The speech was his 'facts matter' illegal immigration speech. (You can watch it on his website.) I watched it and responded as he asked. In my response I noted that about the only option left for him was to sponsor a bill that would send US representatives to Latin America to approve status and provide benefits to them so they wouldn’t have to leave home to get them. We could boost their country’s economy with the infusion of our tax dollars directly instead of them having to send money back to their home country. I made these snarky remarks in response to his fake emotional speech. I did not intend for this idea to be taken seriously. But late in the week there was a New York Times article (NYT - U.S. Considering Refugee Status for Hondurans) about Obama using his pen and sending US officials to Honduras to grant refugee status of children and bring them directly here. Our elected leaders view of life is so different than ours. Where was Heinrich’s and Obama’s action like this with the Veterans healthcare?

He Is Out To Win

Senator Tom U has told us that waves of illegal immigration and accompanying amnesty is good for the country and will boost our economy. This alarming increase (his words) in unaccompanied illegal invaders (my words) may be the boost that he is looking for in his re-election year.  Look at the potential expansion in part time jobs he can tout he is creating, staffing these new federal day care centers springing up at military bases across the country as well as our own Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia. The paychecks (paid for with your taxes and borrowed money at the federal level that you will be paying interest on forever) going to these new government employees will be a boost to the New Mexico economy for sure. And don’t forget about the addition of immigration law judges and staff needed to speed the approval process for the illegals. As a member of the Appropriations committee, he is going to make sure that the New Mexico and local governments (not only New Mexico but the whole country) don’t suffer any costs associated with this invasion. He is going to fix that by making sure these government bodies get some of that magical federal money (more of your taxes and borrowed money) to pay the expenses created by the federal government not sealing the border. Think of the good that the massive return of your taxes going back into the economy because (he won’t enforce existing law) and how long it can go on (at least as long as he has been in office). And it is a nation-wide ‘boost’ to the economy. Evidently he is supporting the film industry in New Mexico by insuring that some of the $3,700,000,000.00 in tax payer money is used to make public service announcements in Latin America to straighten out misunderstanding about our immigration law. (This will probably have as much impact on illegal immigration as the anti-islam video did on the Bengasi embassy attack, but worth the money for sure.) But darn, you have to understand that he building the Obama economy (spending your tax money on high value projects like this) for your own good and on the Obama pace. He is counting on spending your money in this quality manner will get you to re-elect him. What a plan.

Please Watch TV

As citizens we may have a new need to be concerned. During the last election cycle the President's position on gay marriage evolved from not supporting it to being a major supporter of it. The President said the other day that he does not watch the news anymore because he can't count on it. It seems that his position on the news has evolved now. Now this is the same guy that said that he first heard about events like IRS targeting, the NSA spying on US citizens, and the veterans medical issues from the news. And he was as surprised as everyone else when he heard about it. Currently he has been surprised by ISIA in Iraq and what happened in Ukraine. As a country, I think we have a real concern if Obama is not going to watch the news anymore. With his busy schedule of fund raising, he may not even know that Israel and Hamas are going at it on the Gaza Strip.

If There Was Another Way Out He Would Take It

I don't know about you but I was pleasantly surprised that the President could actually admit to recognizing a cover-up perpetrated by Putin and the Ukrainian separatists. Even though it was obvious to most on lookers, it took the Prez awhile but he had to come to a similar conclusion. You know their actions have to be really, really bad after he told the Russians that he would have more flexibility to deal with them after the election. If things weren't so obvious, he would start importing Indonesian children as refugees from Far Eastern drug cartels and pay Putin for the missile to make things right in the 'tranquil world' (Josh Earnest's words) that he has helped create.

The Change He Promised You

From the Patriot Post

Founders Sought to Avoid Obama

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley has long supported Barack Obama, but he's also become alarmed at Obama's increasing imperial presidency. "Our system is changing," he warned, "and [Congress] is the one branch that must act if we are to reverse those changes. We are seeing the emergence of a different model of government, a model long-ago rejected by the framers." Regarding a possible lawsuit against the president, Turley added, "A dominant presidency has occurred with very little congressional opposition. Indeed, when President Obama pledged to circumvent Congress, he received rapturous applause from the very body that he was proposing to make practically irrelevant. Now many members are contesting the right of this institution to even be heard in federal court." Moreover, "This body is moving from self-loathing to self-destruction in a system that is in crisis. The president's pledge to effectively govern alone is alarming, and what is most alarming is his ability to fulfill that pledge. When a president can govern alone, he can become a government unto himself, which is precisely the danger the framers sought to avoid."

He Wants to Know How You Are Doing

I don't know about you but, I am on the mailing list of the White House ( and get notes from them all the time. I got one today letting me know that President Obama is touring meeting people 'On The Front Porch' and wants to hear stories from around the country. There are several of these wonderful letters on the web site as examples of how wonderful the masses are feeling. Heartwarming.

When you respond to send in your story you enter a form that collects some information and then give you a lead in. You give your name and then get 'I am an' drop down that lets you choose between things like 'American, mother, father, son, other'.

The intro to the letter is 'Here's what a average day in my life looks like and how my family and I are doing: '

My letter follows 'I am watching one of the largest, best paying employers in the area dismantle it's facility, putting hundreds out of work, reducing our local tax base, and all thanks to the efforts of your administration and your steadfast support. Lots of people are loosing work opportunities and our taxes will be going up. The only thing that could make it better would be several bus loads of illegal aliens being dumped in our town. '
