Three Thursday Thoughts

Thought #1

President Obama has blamed former President George Bush for just about everything that has happened since he took the oath of office in January of 2009, but he can’t pass the buck on this one.

Section 311 of The Clean Water Act makes the current oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico the responsibility of the President, and his responsibility alone. If you haven’t paying attention, Barack Obama is our current president, not George W. Bush.

Section 311 grants the president broad powers but it also lays all of the responsibility to stop the oil leak on his lap as well. According to Section 311, he also shoulders the responsibility to direct all of the cleanup efforts.

Make sure you read that section to fully understand that this is now his responsibility, and any blame for not getting the job done falls on his lap as well.

The Oil Pollution Act of 1990 takes it a step further and mandates that President Obama must take action to ensure “effective and immediate removal of a discharge, and mitigation or prevention of a substantial threat of a discharge, of oil or a hazardous substance.”

The rig exploded on April 20, 2010 and has been leaking oil ever since. 38 million gallons of oil and 52 days later the President has done nothing to stop the leak, or ensure the effective and immediate removal of the oil.

The buck stops with you Mr. Obama.

Thought #2

Helen Thomas outted herself as an anti-semitic bigot,

 

and Rosie O’Donnell is a moron (and an anti-semite) for agreeing with Helen Thomas.

 

I wonder if Helen Thomas, or Rosie O’Donnell have any idea that Jews have been living in their homeland much longer than Helen Thomas and Rosie O’Donnell have been alive, combined (and that’s saying something)?

I think it’s time to send all of the morons back where they came from, although their mothers sure wouldn’t appreciate it.

Thought #3

Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue disappointed me this week when he had the chance to prove he could make truly conservative decisions, but didn’t.

Gov. Sonny Perdue signed one gun bill conservatives supported but vetoed another, and the list of 26 other vetoes released Tuesday included many that torpedoed conservative rallying points.

Perdue rejected House Bill 1023, the so-called JOBS Act championed by conservatives as a way to stimulate the economy with targeted tax breaks for employers. Perdue’s veto message said he favors instead a comprehensive rewrite of the tax code by a commission he’ll chair this summer.

As expected, he shot down Senate Bill 1 and Senate Bill 148, which would have instituted zero-based budgeting and slated state agencies for possible abolishing every four years.

He showed his true colors by vetoing zero-based budgeting, but the icing on the cake is the fact he vetoed the JOBS Act in favor of a “comprehensive rewrite of the tax code by a commission he’ll chair this summer”.

I bet the unemployed people of Georgia appreciate the fact he’s waiting until later this summer to do anything. What happens when that comprehensive rewrite of the tax code fails to pass the state legislature?

Yeah, got it. The people of Georgia will be subjected to yet another hot summer with nothing byt blowhards making empty promises while they stand in long unemployment lines. Thanks for nothing, Sonny.

No Reason At All

If I had to move tomorrow, and pick any other state to live in except Georgia, I would have to choose Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, or Utah.

One of America’s national organizations fighting against illegal immigration is announcing that 17 states are now filing versions of Arizona’s SB 1070 law which is designed to help local police enforce America’s existing immigration laws.

That’s right. I want to live in a state that tries to make sure that laws are adhered to. No, it has nothing to do with race. It has nothing to do with discrimination. It has nothing to do with racial profiling. I simply want the state I live in to enforce existing law. It really is that simple.

Numerous national and local polls indicated that 60-81% of Americans support local police enforcing immigration laws.

I bet 60-81% of Americans also want their local police to enforce all of the other laws while they’re at it too. Isn’t funny how we try to single out this one law, from one state, rather than address the issue at hand. Our current laws, especially those pertaining to illegal immigration, are not being enforced. What’s wrong with ensuring that those existing laws are actually enforced?

I can’t think of one good reason not to enforce current laws. Not one single reason.

Time To Put Morton On Ice

John Morton, the head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said he plans to increase immigration enforcement in places such as Illinois, but he also said that ICE won’t necessarily process any illegal immigrants referred to them by the state of Arizona.

John Morton, who heads U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said his agency intends to expand the Secure Communities initiative, which gives police and sheriff’s departments access to a Homeland Security database that includes fingerprints. The initiative recently grew to include most of Chicago’s suburbs.

Morton said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials. The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, not a patchwork of state laws, he said.

“I don’t think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution,” Morton said.

Morton doesn’t think that immigration laws are the solution. Wow. I wonder if he knows that he’s not quite living up to his mission as the head of ICE?

ICE’s mission is to protect the security of the American people and homeland by vigilantly enforcing the nation’s immigration and customs laws.

The federal government hasn’t been enforcing our current immigration laws, so the states are starting to do it for them. There’s no good reason not to process illegals from Arizona. There’s no reason at all to continue ignoring our nation’s immigration laws. If he doesn’t like the job, maybe he should step down.

For Mr. Morton, like everyone else in the Obama Administration, it’s time to shit or get off the pot.

We’re Nothing Without Truth

Is Barack Obama eligible to be President of the United States? We still don’t know. If you depend on the mainstream media for your news you probably have no idea what I am talking about.

Numerous requests have been made for Barack Obama to produce a legal, certified copy of his birth certificate to prove he meets the constitutional requirement to serve as President of the United States. He hasn’t responded to any of those requests.

There are rumors, and statements from his own family members, that Mr. Obama was born in Kenya, not the United States. If he was born in Kenya, the citizenship requirements at the time could preclude him from serving as President.

When the questions surrounding his birth first began to circulate, his campaign released a “certificate of live birth”, but that so-called official document has been proven to be false. Why on Earth would his campaign release an altered copy of a certificate of live birth, rather than just reveal an official copy of it, or his birth certificate?

It doesn’t make sense.

A Constitutional Conundrum

I’m sure, by now, many of you are familiar with the preamble of the U.S. Constitution. For those of you who may not live in America, or those who simply may not remember it, let’s refresh our memories.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

We the people… A simple three word phrase (yes Mr. Biden, just three) that defines the very foundation of the laws and principles our country was founded on. The United States of America is the people. It was founded of the people, by the people, for the people. Without the people, there would be no United States.

Our Constitution is a living, breathing document which sets forth the guidelines by which all of our subsequent laws are based. We know who writes the laws, who passes the laws, and who interprets the laws, but exactly who has standing to uphold our Constitution? Is that a power limited to the courts, our Congress, or our President? Shouldn’t we, the people, have the right to question the constitutionality of a matter? Apparently not.
