Immigration

May 31, 2009

Immigration is a great thing. I love when people come here to stay. There are lots of people trying to get in, but I have never heard of anyone having a hard time getting out. I think that line is empty and any of you liberals can go right ahead and the be first in line.

I know lots of people that came here from all over the world and you know what? They all did it legally. I don’t know any illegals. I don’t want to know any illegals. You see, just by virtue of their name they are criminals, but beyond that a lot of them commit other crimes. You can justify this by saying that they have to commit the crimes just to survive but the fact remains, they are ILLEGALS. Illegal, like heroin, murder and rape. Yeah, that illegal.

And what about learning the language. I don’t care what anybody says, when my ancestors came here from Europe they made them learn English. They even made my ancestors that were already here for who knows how long learn English. So I am saying right now that these “illegals” can learn English and how much a foot is and how much a pound is or they can get out. And, if they are going to stay illegal, they can get out anyway.

This brings up an interesting point. If Obama really wants to close Guantanamo, just send those criminals back to where ever we captured them. They had to come from somewhere.

Newspapers

May 30, 2009

Newspapers. I remember when I was a kid looking for a job, wow, the Sunday paper had it all. Get that fat boy and go through the classifieds and you had a job by Monday afternoon. Apparently the news wasn’t too bad either. Man those were the days.

Lately every time I pick up a newspaper I can’t believe what I’m reading. I’ve experienced this first hand. A small town local newspaper where everybody knew everybody and they could not, would not, did not, print it as it happened. I was amazed. The liberal rhetoric and biased lies passing for news these days never ceases to amaze me. I really can’t even pick one up and browse through it without becoming enraged. I can almost see why people would get their news from a fool like Jon Stewart.

Let newspapers go out of business. It’s the free market. If something can’t compete in the free market it goes away. In this case I say, no great loss. They have been filling us full of liberal lies for twenty five years now so it’s about time the reaper caught up with them.

Supreme Court

May 29, 2009

What is the purpose of the Supreme Court (and I capitalize loosely here). What does the Constitution say? Here it is.

Article III

Section 1. The judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish. The judges, both of the supreme and inferior courts, shall hold their offices during good behaviour, and shall, at stated times, receive for their services, a compensation, which shall not be diminished during their continuance in office.

Section 2. The judicial power shall extend to all cases, in law and equity, arising under this Constitution, the laws of the United States, and treaties made, or which shall be made, under their authority;–to all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls;–to all cases of admiralty and maritime jurisdiction;–to controversies to which the United States shall be a party;–to controversies between two or more states;–between a state and citizens of another state;–between citizens of different states;–between citizens of the same state claiming lands under grants of different states, and between a state, or the citizens thereof, and foreign states, citizens or subjects. In all cases affecting ambassadors, other public ministers and consuls, and those in which a state shall be party, the Supreme Court shall have original jurisdiction. In all the other cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate jurisdiction, both as to law and fact, with such exceptions, and under such regulations as the Congress shall make. The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by jury; and such trial shall be held in the state where the said crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any state, the trial shall be at such place or places as the Congress may by law have directed.

Section 3. Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort. No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. The Congress shall have power to declare the punishment of treason, but no attainder of treason shall work corruption of blood, or forfeiture except during the life of the person attainted.

Yeah, where does it say legislate?

NPR and PBS

May 28, 2009

I’m sick of supporting National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS). What? You thought that was really made possible by donations from people like you? Have you ever donated? How much? Do you have any idea how much it costs to produce a documentary? Do you know how much it costs to run even a crummy TV or radio station? Yeah, far more than that free tote bag fifty dollar level. Even if you told two friends and they told two friends and so on, only three of you are going to donate.

I’ve never donated to PBS and I have only donated to NPR once. However, in my defense, I never listen or watch, especially since they went on the global warming fairy tale trail. Liberal as the day is long. They have a slogan that says, “If we don’t do it, who will?” I’d like to answer that. Nobody. Because it’s not worth doing. If it was worth doing, anybody would be able to do it in the commercial market, because it would sell advertising and it would support itself.

That’s right. Once again, your tax dollars to the rescue. Anymore it seems like every liberal garbage project that isn’t worth the media it’s imprinted on becomes a ward of the U.S. taxpayer. Gee, could this possibly be what Thomas Jefferson was talking about when he said, “To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”

Campaign Finance Reform

May 27, 2009

By the time a candidate gets into office they are so indebted to all the entities that made it possible that they can’t possibly do what they came to do. Big oil, environmentalists, unions, gay rights, even foreign entities are contributing to these campaigns. This begs the question, how much does someone really need to run for office? Let’s take the President of the United States of America. I feel that if they only had say three hundred thousand dollars to campaign with that we would hear a lot less mudslinging and a whole lot more of the positive that they intend to do. Added bonus, they would all wait until the last minute to put their ads on so that they were the last one we heard from before we voted. No more two year ad-a-thon of lies about the other side.

I think another fine idea would be that they can only get the money from American citizens and no more than one hundred dollars per citizen. If you can’t find three thousand people to give you a hundred dollars each, maybe you shouldn’t be in the race. This would also eliminate the candidate being indebted to the the gay rights advocate once he is in office. I think I could get three thousand people to contribute. This would put a whole new slant on politics wouldn’t it?

AMA

May 26, 2009

I just wanted to let you know that the American Medical Association is the union for the doctors. Period. End of sentence. End of paragraph. End of story.

Oh, did I startle you? You thought that they were putting out all these reports all these years with your best interest at heart didn’t you. Sorry. They don’t have a heart. They are there to cover the doctors’ butts, pure and simple. It’s what’s best for their members, not what’s best for their members customers. Yeah, you are a customer. A dollar to be made.

I once had a doctor who was doing a particularly poor job. He performed an inspection one time. Then he told me he would need to perform it again, that he may have missed something. I had had this inspection before and was familiar with it so I let this go. After the second time he informed me that he needed to do it one more time. I said, “No, there will be no more checks.” He said, “No, you don’t understand, I need to check again.” I said, “No, you don’t understand, your fired.”  He looked very funny and said, “Oh.” I think it was the first time he ever understood who he worked for.

You see, I had no insurance and I was paying cash. If someone was cutting your lawn and they set the mower to five inches and cut it. Then decided that was too long so they set it to four inches and cut it again then decided that it was still to long and wanted to set it to three inches and do it again, and you knew they were going to charge you for each cut, would you let them continue. You would not. And as your lawn had not been cut right even once you would not pay them at all, would you. Yeah, I didn’t pay him either. I told him to call the cops. I guess he figured he might have been wrong because I never heard anything more.

Anyway I just wanted to let you know that the AMA was not the knight in shining armor you thought they were. So next time you start spewing quotes from them to defend your position, remember, they are the union.

Courts

May 25, 2009

If there’s a weakest link in government, it’s the judicial system. Once again this comes from tampering. As originally set up the judicial system was a marvel. It’s been reduced to what we have today by years of alterations. A perfect example of this would be parole. When someone is sentenced for a crime if they were going to do the whole sentence there would not be anything to mess with. Sentences would be more realistic. Seven life sentences? What kind of stupid sentence is that. Then the convict gets out on parole. How could Charles Manson possibly be getting parole hearings? In case you were unaware he is. I was in my thirties before I found out that kids got charged different than adults. What is that? If a kid kills your mama she is still dead. Why should there be a different sentence because of the age of the convict. I’m old and sick, I shouldn’t be in a prison at all. Should I be allowed to kill as I please with no jail because of my condition? The sentence should have nothing to do with the convict and everything to do with the crime. Had I known this there are some people that needed killing when I was a kid and I would be out now. We need to send that nazi back to face trial too. Judges that give people these unrealistic reduced sentences amaze me too. Time served, suspended sentence, things like that for murder, then they give out twenty years for selling dope. I don’t know. There are a lot of problems with our judicial system now, but I think if the judges had a book that said you will give five years for robbery, twenty years for murder and so on, and the convicts had to do that time in it’s entirety with no time off for good behavior, there would be a lot less trouble.

Taxes

May 24, 2009

I recently quit smoking. I’m not very happy about it. Our rino governor tacked a dollar a pack on all tobacco. I will not pay this tax. It is taxation without representation. The thing that really gets me is that they  keep saying they will not raise taxes on the poor. Who do they think smokes? In the last month in this state tobacco taxes have gone up almost two dollars. The majority of the people who smoke are poor and they will continue to smoke. They have raised taxes on the poor two dollars a day. 730 dollars a year out of a twenty thousand dollar a year income.

I can quit at will, these people can’t. They are addicted.  This is wrong. And for those of you out there saying they need it for their own good, congress is working on a fat tax for your good. And a sugar tax, a tax for breathing and a flatulence tax. You elected these people. Is this what you wanted? This country has moved so far to the left that the “conservatives” make FDR look like a staunch Republican. that’s why when you go to vote there is no choice. They are all the same. What is the least of the evils? They are all so far left that the Republican party is trying to get along with the Democrats. The Republican party is supposed to vehemently oppose the Democrat party not try to cross the isle.

I urge you to contact your representatives and let them know how you feel. At the time I thought Gingerich and the boys were lame, who would have thought I would be nostalgic for the contract with America.

Water Rights

May 22, 2009

When you buy land what comes with it? Do you just get the surface? Does it go ten feet down? Twenty feet down? How far? What if there are pipes or cables there? What if your neighbors tree hangs over.

Real estate law says it goes to the center of the Earth and extends into space. You own all that, dirt, air, oil, water, coal and gold. You can sell some of these things and reduce your interest in the real estate, such as mineral rights, air space and easements. Easements will allow for cables and pipes under your land. If someone puts a pipe accross your land without an easement you can cut it. You can trim your neighbors tree if it hangs onto your airspace.

But now the U.S. government is trying to pull a fast one on you as we speak. They are trying to pass a law to take your water, with no compensation and tax you as well. Check this video then e-mail your representative and senators to let them know how you feel.

Health Care

May 21, 2009

When health insurance was created it was for catastrophes. If you broke your leg it would take care of it, if you had a heart attack it would take care of it. If you had a cold you paid the doctor. If you had a baby you paid the doctor. It worked very well and health care was affordable.

When things didn’t happen to people they thought the insurance company owed them something, even though they had peace of mind for fifty years, they felt that the evil insurance company had somehow ripped them off. They demanded more of a return for their payments. The insurance companies responded, for a few dollars more a month you could get full coverage, doctor visits and babies birthed.

People ate it up, but the demand was high. Prices went up. Insurance companies began to bargain with doctors. They denied claims. The doctors countered, aspirin became three, four and five dollars each. A simple bandage, twelve dollars. If the insurance company caught it they argued, if not it was paid. Finally, the insurance companies came out with health care companies. Everything covered in one stop. Fine if you always stayed near the clinic. But if you got out of the area we were back to the denied claims and twelve dollar bandaids.

K.I.S.S. Keep it simple stupid. I’m a big fan of this. Back when you just paid for your health care it worked. Should we maybe just go back there?
