....Tracy pointed out that I had written "the beat fields of Nebraska" and did NOT buy the idea that perhaps it was illegal jazz musician immigrants I was referring to...Rg

So maybe we just toss out all laws, or as in the case of this Administration, just apply the ones that fit your agenda. We are a country of laws. Change the law? Ok. But for now, how about enforcing the ones on the books. Most immigrants bring incredible work ethic, as our ancestors did, but ours came here with the vision of becoming "Americans". They had pride in their history but understood the need to assimilate. Did they demand that German or Italian be taught in the schools? That the ATM machines have Portuguese options? No. They strived to learn the language and the culture, while retaining their heritage. And, they came through the system. We are a country of laws, and of culture. Let's be honest. We are talking about Mexican immigrants. By and large an honest hard working group of folks. But by and large, they expect us to change our ways to their benefit. Teach in Spanish, signs in Spanish, ballots in Spanish and place the Mexican flag equal or superior to our American flag. If they are so proud and so demanding why not go back to Mexico and fight for changes in that system? Why must we be forced to change or bow to the demands of a mostly ILLEGAL group of immigrants? Become legal through the system, learn the language and become productive & proud AMERICANS. I know you have issues with our American past and feel that we have glossed over the real facts of how we got to our current place in history. Like our President, you may feel that we need to be knocked down a peg. This is the best damn country on the planet. I'm proud of our history and be damned the progressive march to change the past. We've made mistakes, and will continue to. But if this country is so attractive to others, that they are willing to risk their lives to get here, then work within our laws and be proud of the country you want to call home.....

Liar

Barack Obama

In the search to be fair in describing what Obama has done with reference to his grand health care roll-out replete with promise upon promise to average Americans, one word that is surfacing over and over in our country is the word liar. "a person who makes promises, statements, assertions, with the knowledge that none of them are true."

Worse yet, not just a mis-statement, but one with intent to deceive, mislead, and obfuscate and hide the truth.

Thirty or forty times and change, the President promised middle class Americans without exception, qualification, even using the word PERIOD after such promises that if you like your doctor, your plan, your coverage, you can keep it..you can keep it... you can keep it, almost parrot like.
Like a 4th grader merged with a used car salesman, liar may be the kindest term available for this man. Judas, Benedict Arnold, even the Pathological Liar skit on SNL from Jon Lovitz fits this bill.

Jackie Mason says is best,
“He’s saying things that nobody believes. He was always lying every day of his life. Every time he talks it was a lie. The only time he tells the truth is when you didn’t hear from him.”

“He looks at you straight in the face, and tells you that if you want your plan, you got your plan, you keep your plan. Now, a month-and-a-half later, you got no plan, you lost your plan, and he tells you you still got a plan.”

“Never did I expect a guy like this, the head of a country, to blatantly lie to your face, and then not only lie to your face, then lie about the fact that he never lied. Then lie again about the next lie he told. There used to be a time when you would worship the president, even if you didn’t like him. You knew he told the truth because he’s the president of a country. Now, he’s the only guy in America who would have the nerve to lie this much."

Hmmm. Does that comment have much to do with the immigration issue? Maybe you are expecting some bold statements about amnesty that turn out to be blatently false. Just curious...

Pathology is pathology. Everything set forth by the man is fraught with ego driven, self serving, party advancing lies. Doesn't matter what the issue, the man is a public liar now, he did so for his own gain when the truth would have torpedoed his debacle. You know Curt, the man is not acquainted with the truth anymore, and those of every stripe see that the man child king is naked.

I have a few simple questions for the readers of this blog, including the writer. Is there the possibility that we have all been deceived by our President, the man of Hope and Change? Five years ago this man was elected after a serious blow to economy and years of Liberal disgust with George Bush. We elected a man with visions of hope. I was even briefly sold on the future of Hope by Barack Obama. Dazzling smile, great speaker, saying all the right things after a few years of decline in our country. But first, let's not go through the Bush years, or Clinton era, or whatever. This is about now. Barack Hussein Obama. Where are we today?

I'm a Conservative, but an American first. Is it possible that this man deceived us? We never vetted Barack Obama. We've haven't seen his college transcripts, college writings or read of his history in college. Why? What is being hidden? Stop rolling your eyes. Is it possible he does want to knock America down a peg or two? Is it possible some of you support that?

I hesitated to list just a few of the following, but read on:

Fast and Furious caused deaths
IRS illegal disclosures continue daily
NSA spying on EVERYONE
Benghazi shrouded in secrecy
Five years of Zip economic growth
1.5 billion rounds of ammo purchased by DHS
14% real unemployment
30% plus increase in Food Stamps
$80b a month in phony printed dollars
Iran on the verge today of nukes
Nixon cronies burglarized a building
And now the Obamacare fiasco. If you want to keep reading this you can. Period.
Now IMMIGRATION is his next target with 15 million new voters.

I have three grandkids, and one more on the way. I'm terrified. We have a Destroyer in Chief. I didn't agree with a lot of what W did. I think Clinton gave secrets to China. Stop looking back. Barack Hussein Obama has committed at least six impeachable offenses, and yet the media and rabid followers continue to cling to his every word, whether blatant lies or not. He cannot even apologize without blaming someone else. Can you see that? Really? I'm asking for all of us to step back from our POLITICAL agendas and seriously look at this administration and where they've taken us. Polarization like I've never seen. Ask the writer and his best friend T. It may be too late. There is talk today of civil unrest. DHS just ordered 250,000 rounds of tear gas projectiles. Sounds like some scary planning Lucy! Or maybe we will catch the Presidential press secretary, Jay Carney, burglarizing a 711 and we can impeach the President for that really serious offense....

It's not funny anymore.
