Every once in a while, I just list things and make comments on them and try not to go into too much detail. This is another of those hodgepodge of topics.
Michelle Obama school lunch
I’m now convinced that Michelle Obama ought to be investigated for Child Abuse. If she’s been feeding her daughters the way she expects our children to eat in the schools we send them to, it must be a form of abuse somehow. Kids are now going without lunch because they refuse to eat the “approved” school lunches as dictated to by Michelle Obama. These politicians have complained that parents aren’t feeding their children at home, so they pay for school lunches and what do these kids get? Green slop that looks like it’s already been eaten once.
President Obama should be required to take a civics class in high school (which means he’d be susceptible to Michelles luncheon requirements) and learn about the three branches of government.
He is threatening to use executive powers to get immigration reform done claiming that the Republicans are doing nothing so he must. Well Mr. President, in this country, in our form of government, there are three branches of government. 1. Executive (that would be you Mr. President). 2. Legislative, (that would be both houses of Congress, Mr. President). They write the laws. 3. Judicial (you should be familiar with this branch Mr. President, they are the ones that have shown repeatedly that you don’t know what the Constitution is).
You see, Mr. President, Congress writes the laws. They either pass them or they don’t. If the House writes a bill, passes it, it then goes to the Senate for their consideration and their vote. Once they’ve gone back and forth, they then get together for what’s called a markup where they negotiate in or out their particular preferences. Once that’s done, both Houses vote again and if passed, it then comes to your desk and you either sign it or veto it.
There is another side to this. If Congress decides not to pass a law, they’ve obviously decided that your way is not a good way. That is not a prescription for you to ignore them and dictate what the laws will be. Imagine if a Representative decided you weren’t doing things right with your meetings and decided that they’d come to the White House and conduct your meetings because they don’t agree with you. The executive branch is a co-equal branch of our government. Not more equal than the other branches.
If our politicians (that would be the President, the House and the Senate) really want immigration reform they ought to try enforcing the laws on the books. Their lack of enforcement has led to children coming across the border in droves. It has led to young girls being raped on their trek to violate our borders. It has led to people being killed coming to our borders. So the ones that make it are filled with people that have literally killed to get here and raped and stole to get here. Are these really the types of people we want coming to this country? Maybe if we had illegal aliens that were better politicians coming across our borders, it might be beneficial to us (or maybe our elected leaders are already illegal immigrants). Unfortunately, we get the criminals (politicians?). Each one that comes across the border illegally is a criminal.
President Obama is not the only one that should be required to attend civics classes. So should Speaker of the House, John Boehner. Boehner has announced he will sue the President for ignoring the Constitution and not honoring his oath. Mr. Speaker, you don’t need a lawsuit. What you need to do is bone up on the laws that govern your responsibilities of your job as a Representative of the people of the United States of America. It’s called IMPEACHMENT. Learn what high crimes and misdemeanors means and ascertain whether the president falls into that category. You ran for your job as a Representative, I think you should have known what your options were before you took the job.
Please allow me to help. Your job is not to protect your butt in the seat you sit in. Your job is to protect the people in your district that voted for you. You are there to protect us from corrupt government officials. Learn what your options are, grow some guts and do the job you begged for and were elected to do.
The IRS has lost E-mails pertinent to an investigation into whether they were biased towards left wing organizations and against right wing organizations. This I find very confusing. We know that the NSA has been gathering our phone and E-mail records. They can listen as we talk and read what we write. But anything to do with this particular topic from the IRS, tied to Lois Lerner has crashed and been lost forever. This strains all credibility. Perhaps the Congressional investigators ought to go to the NSA and ask for copies of those E-mails and any phone calls made by those under suspicion.
Are we to believe that our government will spy on us and every aspect of our lives but they don’t have the capability to gather these E-mails? Are they not spying on themselves?
There is absolutely no excuse for treating our veterans the way they’ve been treated by the Veterans Administration. There is no excuse for the president, nor the Congress to have this happening. As though it’s not bad enough that our vets had to wait a couple of months to get appointments. Now today, there is a story of a woman who received in her mailbox a letter from the VA saying that he can now come in for a primary doctor and get the care he needed. They want him to get in touch with them promptly. At the bottom of the letter, dated June 12, it reads: “We are committed to providing primary care in a timely manner and would greatly appreciate a prompt response.”
The problem is that the vet, Douglas Chase, died in August 2012. To add insult to injury, when Mrs. Chase applied for funeral benefits at the time of his death, she was denied.
Obama ran for president claiming he was going to fix the VA. This only makes me wonder how many other vets are getting letters like this five and ten years after they’ve died. Obama says that this problem started long before he became president. I don’t care when it started. I care that it’s stopped. I have no confidence that it will be stopped by this president.
We live in the greatest nation in the world. Unfortunately, we are overloaded with some of the most incompetent people running this government. The really sad thing is that in four months, we’re going to have an election and we’ll keep the majority of the incompetent morons running this country. This gives me an increased admiration for the founding fathers. They put together a country that even a bunch of incompetent boobs have a hard time tearing apart.
These clowns work for us. Attend their town hall meetings and ask them directly about the topic you want to know about it and make it known to them that they haven’t got a clue what the American people think despite how many times they tell us what we want.
