Losing Our Grip!

Well, “we”…or many of us…are not losing our grasp on reality. The media and the powers that be seem to have COMPLETELY lost theirs!….

When will we learn?…When will we face the reality?…Who knows?…I don’t expect any real change as long as MORONS like this are the ones in charge:

As is ALWAYS the case, the Washington establishment (i.e. the Democrats) are all in a tizzy over the antics of a rodeo clown in Missouri who happened to perform in an Obama mask. Again, as is ALWAYS the case, they can express outrage and disgust over such trivial, insignificant matters while ignoring the REAL, EVERYDAY, SERIOUS PROBLEMS this nation faces. They lack the fortitude and courage to tackle these problems. Much preferring to lie to the American people day after day after day.

If you think a rodeo clown is the problem, he’s got NOTHING compared to the morons running the show in Washington!

WHEN BARACK OBAMA MET VLADIMIR PUTIN

 

 

I could go on…but, I think you get the point….

The federal government has a long tradition of ignoring the REAL problems Americans face in their day to day lives. And though I applaud yesterday’s Supreme Court decisions, they will have little, if any impact, on the lives of most. Gay or straight.

We have a nation struggling with debt, unemployment, rising costs in nearly every sector, along with countless other valid, significant problems. And as long as President Obama and the Democrats can distract you with gay marriage, immigration, women’s reproduction, etc., etc., etc….you name it…then these troubles can be ignored. But the time will come when all of this comes tumbling down and we will be left to pick up the pieces…if we can.

Think about it!…

Alabama’s Sen. Jeff Sessions (R) exposes the idiocy of the Senate immigration bill…

Sessions Issues Statement On Tonight’s Procedural Vote To Advance 1,200-Page Substitute Immigration Bill
Monday, June 24, 2013

“The Gang of Eight and their allies revealed their true tactics tonight. They shut down debate and blocked amendments to a 1,200-page immigration bill that no one has read… This legislation is a crushing blow to the working people of this country, a surrender to illegality, and a capitulation to special interests over the interests of the citizens we pledged to represent.”

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after tonight’s vote:

“The sponsors of the Corker-Hoeven substitute fell short of the votes they expected tonight to advance what they had erroneously billed to other Senators as a strong border security amendment. Failure to capture the votes they anticipated for this motion demonstrates the building unease this 1,200-page legislative monstrosity has created. I expect that unease will increase as Senators learn more about what’s really inside this proposal.

The Gang of Eight and their allies revealed their true tactics tonight. They shut down debate and blocked amendments to a 1,200-page immigration bill that no one has read. It was anything but the open and fair process that they had promised.

What we know for absolute certain is that this bill guarantees three things: instantaneous amnesty, permanent lawlessness, and a massive expansion in legal immigration that will reduce wages for working Americans. This legislation is a crushing blow to the working people of this country, a surrender to illegality, and a capitulation to special interests over the interests of the citizens we pledged to represent.”

BACKGROUND ON CORKER-HOEVEN SUBSTITUTE AMNESTY-FIRST IMMIGRATION BILL:
· Immediate amnesty before enforcement
· Guts legal requirement for biometric exit-entry system
· Millions of green cards (permanent residency) before enforcement—debunking another false claim from sponsors
· No border surge. Agents aren’t required until 2021. It will never happen
· No fence requirement. DHS retains discretion in the bill that preempts the call for a fence in ten years. Litigation also provides an escape hatch to never build the fence. The fence won’t happen
· Legalization for gang members and convicted criminals
· Amnesty for future visa overstays (in other words, a prospective amnesty for future illegal immigrants)
· Guaranteed welfare access for illegal immigrants
· Undermines interior enforcement, prompting ICE officers to warn: “There is no doubt that, if passed, public safety will be endangered and massive amounts of future illegal immigration—especially visa overstays—is ensured.”
· Expands non-merit chain migration—less than 10 percent of future flow is merit-based
· Doubles the number of guest workers and triples the number of immigrants granted lawful permanent residency—reducing wages for U.S. workers and driving up unemployment..”

Freaky Friday!

Welcome to the end of a rather tumultuous week! Each day brings with it new surprises…and most of them NOT good! It’s a wonder we manage as best we can!…

Let’s take a look at what’s going on, shall we?!

 

Can you smell that?  It is the smell of panic in the air.  As I have noted before, when financial markets catch up to economic reality they tend to do so very rapidly.  ...Over the past several years they have been grossly twisted and distorted by the Federal Reserve and by the other major central banks around the globe.  Did the central bankers really believe that there wouldn't be a great price to pay for messing with the markets?  The behavior that we have been watching this week is the kind of behavior that one would expect at the beginning of a financial panic. .."

"I think the Republican House was put on this earth to save us from huge pieces of comprehensive legislation like this that I think are not well designed, would not work well. If we want to solve particular parts of the immigration problem, we can solve them. We can have more high-tech workers, if you want. We could have more guest workers for agriculture, if that's necessary. We could legalize the people who are here. This 1,000-page bill, which is now probably 1,100 page bill--and much more expensive bill--because of this amendment, is not a good idea.." - William Kristol @ The Weekly Standard

"They're taking food out of the mouths of babies," Pelosi said of her Republican colleagues following the defeat of the farm bill in a floor vote. "Two million families would lose their food under the bill, much less under the Southerland amendment."

“They’re taking food out of the mouths of babies,” …”Two million families would lose their food under the bill, much less under the Southerland amendment.”

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg!

We have financial markets collapsing after they’ve been propped up by the Fed for so long. Never mind that this created a false sense of security!

We have a federal government essentially able to monitor nearly every move you make and every word you say and type!

We have moronic Senators, Lindsey Graham (R-SC) among them, practically breathless to craft a piece of crap immigration “reform” bill! Never mind the feds have REFUSED to enforce existing law on nearly EVERY aspect of immigration and securing the border. It doesn’t take a genius to see what the result of this disastrous bill will do!

We have embarrassments like Chicago teacher’s union prez, Karen Lewis, whose failed leadership is in dire need of scapegoats. She simply has to play the race card. THAT will garner support from the fools that don’t have a CLUE on solving the dire problems of public education!

We have the continuing, insipid, stupidity of Congressional Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, who resort to literal lunacy when it comes to spending. Never mind that there are a RECORD NUMBER OF AMERICANS ON FOOD STAMPS! HER PARTY’S SOLUTION: SPEND MORE!

It’s all of this sort of garbage that has placed this nation in the mire it now finds itself. Self serving so called “leaders” are the enemy we all must face. They have “led” us down a road to a situation from which we may never recover. Until more of us wake up, this stuff will continue!

You can ‘Rest Assured’…a.k.a. Goodbye to your Constitution!

As the level of unscrupulous practices by the federal government explodes on nearly EVERY front, I thought it would be nice to showcase some ‘comforting words’ from our ‘political leaders’…you know…those we’ve put IN CHARGE of running OUR country…..

 

"You see..I'm just the President...I'm not really in charge of anything..and that suits me just fine..."

“You see..I’m just the President…I’m not really in charge of anything..and that suits me just fine…”

 

That pretty much sums up President Obama’s take on everything…..now, for some of the other guys….

Everyone should just calm down and understand this isn't anything that is brand new,'' said Reid (D, Nev.).

I’m a Verizon customer. I don’t mind Verizon turning over records to the government if the government is going to make sure that they try to match up a known terrorist phone with somebody in the United States. I don’t think you’re talking to the terrorists. I know you’re not. I know I’m not. So we don’t have anything to worry about.”

Yeah, that’s fine, Senator…we don’t have ANYTHING to worry about…except when we DO!

 

With all due respect, senator, I don’t think this is an appropriate setting for me to discuss that issue,” Holder said in response to a question from Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) during a previously scheduled Senate hearing to discuss the Justice Department’s budget. “I’d be more than glad to come back in an appropriate setting to discuss the issues you have raised.”

Lame brain U.S. Attorney General, in response to Sen. Mark Kirk’s (R-IL) question as to whether members of Congress are under surveillance….Actually, if any group in the country that SHOULD be, it’s members of Congress!

So..there we go…this is YOUR government in action! The people YOU and I HIRED to do a job!…THIS is what we get! When it comes to surveillance, we don’t need to worry about the Chinese, OUR own government is taking care of that for us!…
