Divorced and Seeking

Posted in Humor, Politics on May 30th, 2011

Divorce no longer carries with it the stigma of failure that it used to. Indeed, with the exception of the Catholic Church and Britain’s Royal Family, there’s no reason for the divorcee not to jump back into the dating arena and beginning courting again.

Honesty about one’s status is strongly recommended though …

Divorced
It Won’t Cost a Dime and You Know You Want It, Baby

Of course honesty is more important, though far less useful in the short term, when one is courting a nation than when one is merely seeking individual “company.” Being divorced from your spouse is a lot different than being divorced from reality. đŸ˜‰

Real Immigration Reform!

Posted in Politics on May 27th, 2011

Judge's Gavel on American FlagThe US Supreme Court has dealt Obama, his Liberals, and the illegal immigrant filth and their treasonous enablers a serious, though sadly non-fatal blow. The SCOTUS has, in a 5 – 3 decision, upheld Arizona’s illegal-worker law, the Legal Arizona Workers Act of 2007.

It has been dubbed the “Business Death Penalty” because it allows Arizona to shutdown businesses that knowingly hire illegal immigrants.

Specifically it allows Arizona to suspend the business license of any company that knowingly hires illegal immigrants for a minimum of 10 days upon the first offense and permanently upon the second or later offense. It also mandates that companies must use the federal governments E-Verify system to validate hirees’ employment eligibility.

This is the true beginning of immigration reform – real immigration reform – because it strikes at the festering core of illegal immigration by punishing those within America who enable, aid, abet, and profit off of these criminal foreign invaders.

Obama’s Otherness

Posted in 2012 Election on May 27th, 2011

One thing for all to remember about Obama is that judging by his words, deeds, and choice of those he surrounds himself with, is that he’s not American, not in his heart and soul. Or, at the very least, that is how he and his coterie have crafted his public image.

It may seem to be an odd course of action for someone who previously claimed to not accept partisan divisions and to hope for a unified America, but only if one was foolish and naive enough to believe anything that Obama says about his beliefs and goals.

One would also have to set aside the basic rules of realpolitik to find Obama’s “otherness,” real or portrayed with great skill, to be surprising. Divisiveness is far more effective as a political tactic than is “unifying” and Obama has always diligently and dutifully followed the rules of realpolitik.

One has to remember that this “otherness” of Obama is exactly what America’s domestic enemies, the oikophobic Liberals, love about him. It also lets them paint the American people as racist and xenophobic, which feeds their own preconceptions of America as a place of evil that must be brought low.

It’s fairly obvious that the upcoming 2012 elections are going to be a base vs. base war with, as happened in 2008, the “moderates” and “independents” split roughly down the middle. This means that Obama’s “otherness” is a useful political coin, but one that works to galvanize friend and enemy alike.

The question remains though of how long with the house that Obama’s Otherness divided continue to stand…
