In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

The Obama Morning News || April 17, 2013

  1. Given Monday’s tragedy, maybe these yahoos in the Senate need to suspend votes on either gun control or immigration reform until they see how the American people feel. Will they? No. Just like with Obamacare, rush into something poorly designed, thought out and not debated fairly.

    1. “There wouldn’t even be any democracy to defend if our every national whim were put into law. We’d sacrifice the whole Constitution for those lost kids on milk cartons one week, and the next week we’d toss the Rights of Man out the window to help victims of date rape.” – P.J. O’Rourke

      This is what Obama is hoping for, anyway…

    2. You know how these weasels operate, Rick. Never let a crisis go to waste. While all our attention is on the victims of the Boston terrorist attack, they are holed up in the formerly hallowed halls of Congress plotting and conniving ways to steal our liberty out from under us.

      1. I’m waiting to see tomorrow how Obama works gun control into his comments on the bombing. The bombing must be an irksome interruption to him as he was planning to go full bore on gun control.

        1. I think that actor, Jay whatshisname started it with his “culture” comments on Twitter yesterday, Julie. Appears the plan is to link guns to explosives and probably other weapons to portray a violence based culture that must be eradicated by governmental action.

          Scottso put it very well here on an earlier post that they will probably look to ban ball bearings and nails at this rate!

  2. White House blesses Rubio immigraton plan? That’s enough to tell me we need to start calling our Reps!

    Unions call for repeal of Obamacare? It can’t be ALL bad, can it? Just kidding….

    1. That’s enough to make me not vote for Rubio. Although . . . Obama and the Democrats are so devious that they may be trying to remove him from contention this early. Rubio’s got a tiger by the tail.

  3. Union calls for Obamacare repeal

    resulting in unintended consequences that are inconsistent with the promise that those who were satisfied with their employer sponsored coverage could keep it.

    These provisions jeopardize our multi-employer health plans, have the potential to cause a loss of work for our members, create an unfair bidding advantage for those contractors who do not provide health coverage to their workers, and in the worst case, may cause our members and their families to lose the benefits they currently enjoy as participants in multi-employer health plans…

    SNIP

    You idiots! Those are some of the problems with this abomination that conservatives have been decrying for three years, yet you supported that stupid effing Commie in 2012.

    Tough titty.

  4. “Union calls for Obamacare repeal . . . Jim Hoft”

    They’re exempt anyway, what makes the diff?

    Not that Democrats are good with intellectual consistency anyway. If they were, I don’t think Black voters and Union chiefs would be in the same political bed…

    “Then there are super-minimum wage laws, such as the Davis-Bacon Act, which were written for the express purposes of excluding blacks from government-financed or -assisted construction projects. Labor unions have a long history of discrimination against blacks. Frederick Douglass wrote about this in “The Tyranny, Folly, and Wickedness of Labor Unions,” and Booker T. Washington did so in “The Negro and the Labor Unions.” To the detriment of their constituents, black politicians give support to labor laws pushed by unions and white liberal organizations.”

    1. I too read the article. LSM at it’s worst. Nothing like being objective, it was more like stirring the pot before facts are known. The finger pointing is already happening, yet no one has a clue. It’s like the comments Jay Mahr has posted trying to incorporate the bombing into gun control. It’s going to take a couple of weeks for the whack jobs and their slanted postings / comments to subside and real news will again be reported (however, what is “real” news anymore).

      1. Lets not forget the outrage being shown because the FBI is asking for help from the public. “If they don’t know who did this, disband all these agencies!” The weakness/ignorance being displayed by the FBI and other agencies could, of course, be true. However, its also a common investigative technique to lure a perp out by publishing disinformation. In either case, the criticisms are coming from people who could not find their own backsides with two hands in a closet. Let the professionals do their jobs.

          1. I always sort of like the “someone knows who did this” thing–it ruffles the imagination. You know–someone does–this is a mystery. But then I remember that line from Seinfeld–he stands in the PO line and sees the wanted posters, looks at the guy behind him–not him–and that’s all he’s got.

  5. If it’s Islamic terrorism, this administration isn’t interested.
    An American patriot who loves his country, watch em’, he might be a domestic terrorist.
    Believer in individual freedom guaranteed by the Constitution, oh yea, keep an eye on him.
    Served multiple tours in a combat zone, no guns for you at home.
    You might be crazy and transform into a terrorist, thnks for your service.

    1. Maybe someone will issue joggers carry concealed licenses. I know this isn’t funny–but some of the machinations people are going through to justify their preceonceptions are sort of amusing. Hey–maybe it’s North Korea!
