On illegal immigration I am of mixed opinion. On the one hand I believe that someone who is willing to work hard and to contribute to society and the economy, who is looking to make a better life for him or herself and his or her family is someone we should welcome to our country. We should respect the pursuit of happiness.
On the other hand we should also respect the rule of law, and for good or ill, we have immigration laws in this country.
And the headline comes from the mouth of a professor at George Washington University, testifying before the House, who says he agrees with many of Obama’s policies.
Austerity? Austerity involves tax increases and big time spending cuts. I saw some taxes increased but I didn’t see much in the way of spending cut. What tiny bit was cut in sequestration was reinstated thanks in large part to the Republicans who couldn’t bear to see money to the military contractors reduced.
We have noted many times the very close relationship between the current White House and the #oldmedia. The mainstream news outlets (really less and less mainstream with each passing day) have been stalwart allies of this president and have been generally positively disposed toward this president (and candidate) from the get go. Controlling the message has been key to keeping Obama afloat.
Lay the people off but you can’t blame us. Or you can blame Obamacare for the layoffs and you won’t get the exemption. Either way we win.
And oh, by the way, if you screw with us we’ll take your company down so keep your mouth shut.
This is the America in which we now live.
The video comes from Charles Krauthammer and Fox News. We often have issues with both. However Mr. Krauthammer is right on here. How is it that Obama has changed the Obamacare law 27 times since it was passed? Only Congress has the authority to do this.
Boy, the Congressional Budget Office report which showed that Obamacare will further reduce the number of people in the workforce sure threw the White House for a loop. It spent most of Friday trying to explain the report away.
The train wreck just continues to pile up.
This is a place where the president has no business at all.
Unintended consequences. You’d think the big government people would have learned this by now. But the dream of heaven on earth, all administered from Washington is so alluring. Every generation some can’t help but be drawn to the siren’s call. This time will be different. This time it’ll work.
