Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

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!

I was reading up on new military enlist criteria and, specifically, criteria about tattoos. I am glad to see that criteria is changing and becoming much more selective for appearance, brains, clean background and the like. Being as how the military is being downsized, they are able to tailor our military forces to a higher caliber group. But I ran across something that just stymied me; that of Atheist chaplains and how they are not allowed in the military chaplain corps.

As the article states, 98% of chaplains are of Christian faith. That would make sense since it appears to be the majority faith in the military. And, yes, you apparently have a small atheist contingent in the military. What I can’t figure out is why they would need a chaplain? What purpose could they possibly have in calming personnel going in to battle or delivering a hopeful and saving message to those wounded and dying? I looked up an article to see just what atheists believe. This is one of the articles I found. This is all well and good but how does an atheist chaplain work or fit in? I really don’t get it.

I always have issue with not broadening rule on cases to stave out like cases. Narrowly put, the SCOTUS ruled that you cannot force someone to go against their religious beliefs; in essence. The liberals are livid. Ginsburger had the descent. Why is it that liberals think the Constitution doesn’t mean what it says, but rather has some hidden meaning that only they can decipher? I, personally, trust the Constitution’s understanding and believe the SCOTUS interpreted things correctly. This was a no-brainer from the beginning so I really don’t want to focus so much on the outcome but rather the process these things go through.

This suit started back in September 2012. It took that long to work up to the SCOTUS for ruling. During that period, healthcare was forced in full upon Hobby Lobby. Monies were taken but no restitution will be made back to Hobby Lobby. And what would have happened if the SCOTUS didn’t take the case? It would have been ruled from a lower court, where justice rarely comes to past since too many judges are completely political. My point is this: if the U.S. Government changes a law illegally, or takes executive action, from the initial time to its final conclusion, many lives and businesses are changed. Some will not come back to where they were before the acts were instituted. Time lost, money lost, goals not met, lives hurt or ruined. And where is the restitution? And where are the penalties, fines, incarcerations for the people and entities that caused the problem in the first place? Saying,things were done in good faith and on sound advice does not hold water when the effects put people in ruination. And what is to stop them from doing something similar tomorrow, to where we have to wait 2 years or more to get a final outcome? There must always be severe consequences to curtail this type of flagrant abuse. Yet, on the left, all I hear is silence on these type issues.
