Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

As can be read here, the Ebola virus comes in five known strains. It is nasty and it is deadly…..up to 90% rate of fatality. Good thing it stays on the African continent where it sprang from, right? Not so much. Because the world is getting smaller, with more people and more use of transportation, nothing is off the table. Here is a story on the recent outbreak. And with the previous article you will note that it is being transmitted by animals but not causing outbreak in humans. It leaves “antibodies” in the victim. ANY virus can come back to life in a human under the correct conditions.

Unfortunately, many diseases seem to thrive and survive in areas where there are poor conditions of human life, like third world countries. And, although many good Samaritans are working in those areas to uplift that lifestyle, sometimes the best that can be done is to keep things in check–no better and no worse. With that in mind, as well the “benign” looking symptoms that Ebola starts with, think about people coming to this country unchecked medically. Think of the diseases which have been eradicated here making a comeback from people entering our borders……checked and unchecked. We live in an environment today with people and an administration that carry a laissez faire attitude about illegals entering our country. The stew is being made right under our noses.

The Berlin airlift came about when the communist DDR walled off West Berlin, essentially land locking the city. Regardless of the wall, the Americans jumped it from the air. Now we have an issue on our southern border with having illegal aliens escape their own countries going right across our porous border. What makes it a perilous trip is not Mexico trying to keep people IN the country but promoting they go to the U.S. and send back greenbacks. In order to do that, these illegals have to get past the predators, laying in wait, within the borders of Mexico and Central America. That alone should help to deter the influx of illegals but those illegals, knowing they will stay in America if they make it, feel the trek is worth the risks.

Now Obama wants to eliminate the risks, sidestep Congress once again, and bring about a new illegal class–the refuge. But it won’t stop with his little experiment. There will soon be refuge assessment centers in every country, kinda like ObamaCare exchanges. Just another scheme to break our bank faster. We might have to go to war with Mexico sometime soon and send the refuges to South America. This administration is way out of hand.

The world and America are coming apart at the seams. You would think that if we had a President that he would be focused on resolving some issues. That would happen IF we had a President. We only have a lying, bloviating fund raiser who spends much of his time playing golf. And when he goes somewhere to exercise his expertise in one of the above mentioned venues, it causes problems for the little people because of the necessity of security. Of course, he being the Messiah and great unifier, he really shouldn’t have need for security but that is another matter. Because he does have this need, nightmares ensue for anyone trying to do anything near where he will be or the route he takes. Now the issue with Clinton getting his hair cut on the Tarmac and delaying flights for 2 hours was really a big boner. But when security stops a woman in labor from crossing the street (and an ambulance from what I understand), this seems to go beyond the pale. Should the citizens suffer and possibly die to accommodate the boy king’s foolish follies? Gee, I wonder.

Oh, yes, the time is long overdue to have term limits on Congress and judges. Why would we only limit the Executive Branch without having the same constraints on the Legislative and Judicial branches? Why indeed. It appears that the need of limits is really making its case known in these modern times. You see, politics is a “scratch your back, you scratch mine” type of forum. Unfortunately, bias does not belong in any of these branches and when the party trumps the people, the system is surely broken. Case in point is the recent decision on subsidies for ObamaCare sign-ups.

It appears that two conflicting court decisions are at issue: the U.S. District Court (just below the Supreme Court) where a 2-1 decision was handed down stating that subsidies could only be given through state exchanges. By the way; this court had 4 Obama judge appointments placed after Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option in the Senate. The other court, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ( which is supposedly equal to the District Court ) held that the subsides could be granted by HealthCare.gov. What the 4th based there opinion (why would they have an opinion and not a sound ruling?) on is that Congress (read Dems ONLY) had the INTENT to make subsides available for all. Unfortunately, that is not what the law READS.

Here is my beef. We are no longer a nation ruled BY LAW. We have become a nation ruled by the intent of someone’s opinion of how they interpret the meaning of someone else’s thought. Words use to have meaning but, if you read this site enough, you will realize that Dems/liberals don’t use definitive definitions but, rather, however something should be interpreted at the time (which seems to change as constantly as wind direction). So it appears that all branches of government have been corrupted and no longer seem to function as their assigned duties prescribe. An old joke: “What do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?” Answer: “A good start!” Don’t get me wrong; lawyers were a needed and noble profession once. Anymore it is a stepping stone for self glorification. It has become corrupted in too many ways and lawyers are ever mindful of side-stepping the rule of law and perverting it. This isn’t the entire profession but a good portion of it. It seems that those same lawyers become judges…..with political ideology and leanings, where law is NOW being made instead of interpreted AS WRITTEN. There is no separation of powers anymore because we no longer have checks and balances as established by the Constitution. Since lawyers won’t clean up their own house, term limits, review boards for misconduct and dismissals are our next line of defense.

Rats are overtaking St. Clair shores. A proposal by the council is to put a $5 bounty per rat. Good money making endeavor. I’m sure there will be many ingenious ways (and some illegal) in bagging the poor little critters. But the better idea is in the comments (3rd one down from last check). Between the bounty on rats or liberals, citizens could make much more money on liberals. Why you ask? Because rats are smart enough to be quiet and hide. Looks like a win-win for St. Clair and Michigan.

Who would have believed that after all the voting, no Nationals were selected. Jordan Zimmermann got the nod from the NL board but pulled up lame just days before the All Star game. So what happened next? They picked a Marlin which gave the NL East leaders NO representation. Oh, but hark! A Braves pitcher can’t play because of lacking rest from his last outing so the benevolent MLB picked Tyler Clipperd to take his place.

I see stats for our players that can’t be beat. I see at least 3 All Stars on this current Nats team. My favorite (since he first came up) has been Anthony Rendon, especially his performance this year, and for good reason. I love baseball. I LOVE BASEBALL! And it has shown politics for some time now. This is getting out of hand and politics seems to be ruining every facet of daily life. I like Clippard a lot (Mama doesn’t) but I can watch him during regular games. I have decided to let this All Star game go and stick with the regular season Nats games. And when we win the pennant, we can do it without the help of MLB. Then next year the MLB will be scrambling to get Nat players for the All Star game. Shame they can’t see the light shinning in their eyes now.

Sorry about the delay, Supervisor. I wanted to get this posted when it came out but the ADHD sent me to other realms. Here is the story in the WaPo I personally want to thank those 686 petitioners that put us on another wild goose chase, wasting hard earned tax dollars that could have been much better served. Wasted money, end result the same as the first time, and much more egg on your faces. Like all liberals, you whine about things that are against your agenda and then you whine some more when you don’t get your way. I’m sure you will have plenty to complain about. Sour grapes from prunes is what I see. I guess the next exercise is to lie some more during next election and, possibly, get someone out of state to run for Sterling supervisor. Oh. You already tried that, didn’t you? The new losers are the same as the old losers, just recycled. I don’t need to name names. And, yes, this is what is known as justice!
