Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

The Age of Obama is over. Praise God.

Now, it is time to undo some of the damage. But it is easier to destroy than to create, so it will take time to undo the destruction Obama’s socialism has wrought.

Obamacare

Obamacare destroyed a lot of the health insurance market that was available to those who wanted to buy it. It will take some time to get that back. So, those who have policies now should be allowed to keep those policies, exactly as they are now, for three years. Full subsidy this year (changing that would amount to an ex post facto law, which would be unconstitutional), half subsidy next year, and no subsidy the year after that.

What to do with pre-existing conditions? Pre-existing conditions should be paid for by the policy in force when the condition was diagnosed. If I am changing auto insurance policies Monday, and have an accident Sunday, the policy in effect Sunday pays for it, not the one in effect Monday when I get the repairs done. Health insurance should work the same way.

Should those under twenty-five years of age be allowed on their parents’ insurance? That’s between you and your insurance company. As long as there is no fraud, the government should not interfere in private contracts.

Minimum Wage

The Minimum Wage had a horrible impact on Black employment.  After taking control of the House and Senate in 2007, the demonrats jacked up the Minimum Wage.  The new rate went into effect July 25th, 2007.  Black employment dropped in August. Coincidence?  I don’t think so.

Again, the government should not interfere in private contracts, including employment contracts.

One interesting argument for a higher Minimum Wage is that it results in increases productivity.  There is some merit to this argument, but it is so because it tilts the trade-off between labor and automation in favor of automation.  This is actually a Good Thing — if you are not one of those who become unemployed because your labor is no longer worth the new rate.  And it does take some time for that automation to come online.

The Supreme Court

As we have seen with Chief Supreme Roberts (“It’s not a tax, so we can rule on it; but it is a tax, so it’s constitutional.”), the Supremes can be a real crap-shoot.  Congress needs to start impeaching Supremes who make such absolutely outlandish rulings.  When a law explicitly says one thing, even specifying the section of code it refers to, and the Supremes rule that it means something else in an entirely different section of the code than the one specified, those Supremes need to be impeached.

No, we cannot blame Obama for Roberts, but we can blame him for a couple of the Supremes that signed onto those rulings.

Foreign Policy

Obama was the joke of the world, and he dragged this nation down with him.  We need to reaffirm our commitment to Israel, and move our embassy to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.  We need to commit our nation’s military to destroying radical Islam, including Iran and Libya, not appeasing it.

The Obama Administration completely screwed the pooch in Ukraine and Crimea.  By supporting a pro-European coup, we gave Putin the excuse to take the Crimea and the heavily Russian eastern part of the country.  I do not think there is any way to fix the damage they caused there.  Crimea’s being part of Ukraine never made sense anyway, and removing the ethnically Russian eastern parts of Ukraine will leave us with a more Euro-friendly Ukraine anyway, so maybe it’s better to just leave that as it is.

Illegal Immigration

First, they put Blacks out of work by jacking up the Minimum Wage, then they put more out of work by importing illegal workers who are hired for less.  Anyone hiring illegal immigrants should go to jail.  Require E-Verify.  If you hire an illegal immigrant without using E-Verify, you go to jail for the length of time of that person’s employment.  Hire two illegally for two years, you go to jail for four.  “Remittances” to people in foreign countries will be subject to the top Gift Tax rate — 40%. Use the proceeds to build a wall.  That is how Mexico will pay for it.

Illegal immigrants will be deported, and their assets seized.  “Dreamers” can stay and become citizens, but their parents must be deported.  Those who choose to leave with their deported parents will retain the right to return and become citizens.

I just can’t believe the audacity of this scumbag. Final days are waning fast and because he wants to have a hissy-fit about losing his legacy items (and there is nothing legacy about running America into the ground and ruining the economy) he has decided to commute Manning’s sentence of treason. The little boy-bitch should have been shot but instead he gets 35 years in prison for giving out published secret documents. Now he can get out in 4 months. I wonder if he still gets that crotch operation. I pity the drunk that takes that thing home with him from the bar. Obama has a litany of offenders he has pardon but not this guy. Although I don’t even condone this act, it seems a hefty price to pay for killing a predator who got a light sentence. Manning killed more people than this by his action. And let’s not forget the jihadi scum that will be released from GITMO within the next couple of days. More terror and innocent lives lost.

Maybe there is nothing we can do to an ex-President but I would be willing to bet that if the world court wanted to put him on trial for crimes against humanity, I think that Trump could be nudged to sign the extradition papers. Shoot. I would even volunteer to collect signatures on a petition to get that done. Every minute that he remains in office puts our country and the world in jeopardy.

Well, there is but 15 days before Obama is sent packing. Unfortunately he won’t be going back to Chicago because he wants to stay here to disrupt things in whichever way he can. Now if he is so good at community organizing and race relations, why NOT go back to Chi-town and straighten that cesspool out. All time high for shootings and murders. Place run-amok by his buddy Rahm. Just like with all American citizens Obama really doesn’t care. Here you have Negro teens and one adult torturing a Caucasian mentally disturbed teen and using Trump and his race as their provocation. Now Obama did say the video was sickening but he just got thru making a speech about how improved race relations have been since he has been in office. Making a statement like that is just as sickening to me as the video. Are we never going to change the education system? Are we never going to kick these people off the welfare rolls? Are we never going to go back to the family unit (that would be a MALE gender father and a FEMALE gender mother) as our bedrock for society? I have years ago stated my premonition of what the degrading of civilized America was going to look like and how it would show itself. There is a last straw here somewhere that will finally light this tinderbox. Is it already too late to fix things before they get out of hand? Don’t know but I would be guessing yes.

Merry Christmas

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

Being the season of peace and love and joy, I would wonder if the aliens transported me to a pseudo realm of another dimension that just has small similarities of what I once knew. We have taken every avenue (I think) towards trying to delegitimize Trump’s election. I mean the progs have already started eating their own as they are so aptly capable. I heard that it was all Abedin’s fault and you know what? Not a peep from Hillzilla to protect her girlfriend/lover/confidant/right hand gal. There just is no shame here. Protesting the electoral process with whiney cry babies in many states. I was waiting for someone to self-immolate. These animals are so crazy that they just don’t know when to give up. Yes, we need to convert old prisons into mental holding cells for all the nut jobs that are free to roam the streets. Then we could buy, say, Baja California from Mexico and use it as a prison. Mine the waters, carve a ditch and air drop supplies as needed. I know. I’m a conservative and we don’t do those things……progs do. It is fun to think about and here is one of the reasons why.

Saw this on TV yesterday. Made me want to throw up. Pretty disgusting guy. The superintendent says they can’t “micro-manage” what a teacher does off school grounds. Really? Good dodge. And Smith doesn’t think the nativity scene should be there because it indoctrinates kids during their critical thinking period and there is NO SCIENTIFIC PROOF of God or Satan. But global climate change will kill us all in 20 years, right? Again these assholes are trying further to destroy the fabric of society and turn humans into mindless drones. At least Trump is on a thank you tour around the nation where Merry Christmas is spoken in public without fear of reprisal. It has already gone way too far with this BS and I think the last straw is just waiting. Liberals have made themselves targets. Hope they know what they are doing. Once you pull the pin, Mr. Grenade is no longer your friend!

Rep. McDermott wants to change the Constitution to make Health Care a right:

GUEST: AFTER THE CLINTONS TRY TO THEIR HEALTH CARE PLAN BACK IN THE EARLY 1990′S AND FAILED, MANY OF US THOUGHT LET’S GO BACK TO THE BASE AND LET’S GO WITH A CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT THAT WOULD MAKE HEALTH CARE A RIGHT. I THINK IT IS A RIGHT AND THE DEMOCRACY. EVERYBODY SHOULD EXPECT GOOD HEALTH CARE. AND PEOPLE SAID, WE DO NOT WANT TO PUT IN THE CONSTITUTION BECAUSE THERE WILL BE LAWSUITS AND THEY HAD SOME OPPOSITION. I THINK IT IS A RIGHT. AND UNLESS WE ARE WILLING TO PASS A LAW THAT SAYS THAT A DOCTOR IN A HOSPITAL CAN LET SOMEBODY DIED AND NOT CARE OR HAVE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEM , THEN AS THEY HAVE RESPONSIBILITY, THE DOCTOR AND THE HOSPITAL DOES NOT HAVE ANY CHOICE. IT IS A RIGHT TO HAVE YOUR HEALTH CARE TAKING CARE OF. BUT WE WOULD NOT PUT IT IN THE CONSTITUTION AND IN MY VIEW, IT SHOULD BE A CONSTITUTION. WE COULD BE MORE RATIONAL ABOUT HOW WE PUT A SYSTEM TOGETHER THAT WORKS TO COVER EVERYBODY. I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE. THE FACT IS, IT IS A RIGHT.

I do not think anyone believes that health care is not a right. What progs do not understand is that a RIGHT is something that someone else (especially the government) cannot take away from you or prevent you from having. A right is not something that someone else (especially the government) must provide for you. We have the right to keep and bear arms. That does not mean the government, or gun makers, must give everyone firearms.

“THAT SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM IS NOT ONLY FOR WHEN YOU ARE OLD, IF YOU HAVE KIDS IN COLLEGE, HOW DO THEY LIVE? THE SOCIAL SECURITY SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE THEM A DEATH BENEFIT.”

(No, he’s not shouting. That’s a direct copy of the live closed captioning.)

No, Social Security does NOT provide a “death benefit” to college student’s whose parents die: “Your unmarried children who are under 18 (up to age 19 if attending elementary or secondary school full time) can be eligible to receive Social Security benefits when you die.” https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/onyourown4.html
