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

  1. So let me get this straight.
    First Obama snubs the Constitution with executive action on the Dream act that he never bothered to propose when he had BOTH houses of Congress 2008 to 2010, then he stays silent while rumors and pamphlets circulate throughout Central America that just “get there” and you’ll be able to stay in America, and now as our southern border faces an invasion of disease and crime like never before he blames Congress for inaction?
    On one hand the new Qunnipiac poll showing Americans now rank Obama as the worst President since WWII gives a little hope, yet on the other the fact that only 4% of the Dems in the poll agree with Republicans and Independents shows just how far gone the Dem party today.
    And what’s this I hear about “brown shirts” security in San Antonio threatening arrest to care workers who tell the truth?
    Thank God for the Supreme Court (shameless link whore alert)
    BUT, if America is to survive for future generations in the manner in which the founders intended, it is up to us in this time to put the progressive left back down to the sewer from whence it came.
    OH and your trivia for the day:
    Did you know that July 2nd, not July 4th was the actual day that the 2nd Continental Congress voted for Independence?
    Have a great one all. (And if you are financially secure and have the time it wouldn’t hurt to grab a gun, hop in the car and head on down to the Texas border, there’s some ranchers down there that are in dire need of help. They sure as hell aren’t getting it from Obama.)

    1. I think we should send the buses full of children to Washington for a free tour of the White House and Capitol Hill – BEFORE they are treated for scabies and lice.

      1. The children should all go to Nancy Pelosi’s neighborhood. She should welcome them as an opportunity to pay for their care, feed them, and let them ride in her private jet.

        The Federal government is bringing the illegals to towns they think will absorb them quietly, not in areas of any wealth. The Dem 1% say bring them all in, but are praying just not in MY backyard! Hypocrites all.

  2. Perfect timing. Governor Quinn of Illinois signed a bill yesterday allowing people to register and vote on the same day.
    Of course no I’D required.
    No surprise that Quinn is running for reelection this year and depends heavily on Chicago’s hispanic vote.
    This may have already been noted, but just in case, here ya’ go.

  3. A wee bit off topic, but still part of the mystery of the Obama WH–have you noticed that Obama is hammering Israel (again) for responding to the rockets attacks from Gaza, and the kidnapping and murder of those three young men by the Palestinians? Yet, he’s said almost nothing about the trail of beheadings and crucifixions and murders of ISIS. Yet another clue.
