Remember how those stimulus dollars were supposed to create jobs, and foster hard-working people to get jobs? Look at how they're spending your tax dollars.
I was up early this morning, and watching Washington Journal on C-span, I flipped it on just as they were reading from a newspaper (I don't know which one!) about the unemployment rate in Michigan, and the fact that people are not taking jobs for $10 to $25 an hour, preferring to stay on unemployment for almost two years.
I was going through spam email, hoping for an email from the Kia dealer, on an under 9k Kia Soul advertised as a new car deal, and came across Ann Coulter's current column. Now, you may not like her, because she is *plain speaking*, or *in your face nitty gritty*, but in this article, you will find a nugget of joy:
Mr. HOWARD: I now move to take up House joint resolution No. 127.
The motion was agreed to; and the Senate, as in Committee of the Whole, resumed the consideration of the joint resolution (H.R. No. 127) proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
The first amendment is to section one, declaring that all "persons born in the United States and Subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the States wherein they reside. I do not propose to say anything on that subject except that the question of citizenship has been fully discussed in this body as not to need any further elucidation, in my opinion. This amendment which I have offered is simply declaratory of what I regard as the law of the land already, that every person born within the limits of the United States, and subject to their jurisdiction, is by virtue of natural law and national law a citizen of the United States. This will not, of course, include persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers accredited to the Government of the United States, but will include every other class of persons. It settles the great question of citizenship and removes all doubt as to what persons are or are not citizens of the United States. This has long been a great desideratum in the jurisprudence and legislation of this country.
Anchor babies are NOT thought of in this law, but it was meant for the slaves, who often lived in the US, born in the US. Read for a fuller exposition on this important article.
This will be the linchpin of the coming elections, I think more than the economy. We cannot really do much with the economy, until we FIX and CONTROL our borders. Look at Arizona! I was looking at a Michigan newspaper earlier, they are considering a law resembling Arizona's. Debbie Riddle, TX state senator, will be introducing a similar bill up in Austin in this coming legislative session. Oklahoma and Rhode Island already have laws like this, passed in 2008...The California state law is STRICTER than the Arizona law, yet they ignore it in their own state, at their own peril. Sanctuary cities are a bad idea. The 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act was supposed to 'end' illegal immigration, and made it illegal to knowingly hire illegals. With the E-Verify system in place, it makes it easier to spot the illegals and NOT hire them. However, some states are opposing E-Verify. Why? Because they are basically a sanctuary STATE, and really don't give a damn for the rule of law.
People will say "you're racist" for opposing illegal immigration, but you don't even have to specify a country illegals come from in order to get this epithet thrown at you. In Yahoo chat, let's see.. I'm a racist because I support the rule of law (immigration); a bigot (because I believe Jesus is the only way to heaven); oh yes, let's not forget "did you take your meds" if I ask a Muslim questions about their religion. I tell ya, some people's heads are in the ground so much, that it is scary. And to think people think I get political on Facebook! it's nothing compared to this blog hah!
I've started reading my Bible through for the year, I have some catching up to do as I started in March this year, so I will leave off for the night before I get on another tear and start ranting about the mosque that Bloomberg (the moron!) says should be built. Yep. Another slap in the face for the good ole US of A. More on that tomorrow, a bit of history for you guys probably around 6 pm central time. Until then, I'm off and will BBQ some bison burgers tomorrow early evening :D
