Parenting Failure

Posted in Humor, Politics on March 1st, 2015

Drowning Obama

One of the most important – arguably the most important – duties that any parent must fulfill is teaching their children to make appropriate, wise, decision in the absence of their parents’ direct oversight. The costs of failing to correctly carry out this duty can be far reaching and horrific.

A case in point:

Four boys were fishing. As their boat rounded a point on the lake, they saw a man thrashing in the water.
With no hesitation, they jumped into the water and saved him.

It was not until they pulled him to shore that they noticed the man they had saved was President Obama, who had slipped away from the Secret Service for a swim.

When President Obama caught his breath, he thanked the four boys and offered them anything they wanted in return for saving his life.

The first boy thought about it for a while and finally answered. “I would like a presidential appointment to West Point so I can serve my country.”

The next two thought that was a great idea, but one said he had always wanted to be a pilot so he would rather attend the Air Force Academy.

The third boy chose the Naval Academy.

The president turned to the fourth boy, who was still thinking.

Finally he answered, “Mr. President, I would like a burial with honors at Arlington National Cemetery”

The president was shocked and asked the boy why he would make such a request at his young age.

The boy replied “Because when my father finds out I saved you, he is going to kill me!”

As you can see, failing to raise their boys correctly and to make correct decisions, exactly a cost to far, far more people than just those children and their immediate families. That’s a significant parenting failure. ;-)

So raise your children right. There’s more at stake than might realize.

And yes, the problem with telling Obama jokes is that the boy’s followers don’t think they’re at all funny and Americans don’t think they’re jokes.

Violate Or Be Violated

Posted in Politics on February 26th, 2015

Obama - Mexican FlagObama’s response Judge Andrew S. Hanen, of the Federal District Court for the Southern District of Texas, ruling in favor of Texas and the 25 other states that had the temerity to challenge Obama’s unilateral immigration “reform” actions is classic Obama attitude – petulant and arrogant.

Despite the federal court’s injunction against carrying out Obama’s unilateral immigration policy changes, Obama has made it clear to all ICE and Border Patrol employees that they must carryout his wishes or face “consequences.”

Until we pass a law through Congress, the executive actions we’ve taken are not going to be permanent; they are temporary. There are going to be some jurisdictions and there may be individual ICE official or Border Control agent not paying attention to our new directives. But they’re going to be answerable to the head of Homeland Security because he’s been very clear about what our priorities will be.

– Barack Obama

It’s part of the law of Obama’s jungle – violate or be violated.

That’s the way it seems to be within the Obama Regime. You do what Obama demands, even if it’s in violation of court order, or you will be violated yourself.

And, of course, America’s domestic enemies are all for this sort of thing.

Obama Vetoed Keystone XL

Posted in Politics on February 26th, 2015

obama-veto-timeYep! Obama vetoed a bill that approved the Keystone XL pipeline which would connect tar sands crude oil in Alberta, Canada with an existing pipeline, allowing 830,000 barrels/day to be pumped to US refineriest.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the president vetoed the bill almost as soon as it arrived at the White House.

In a message to the Senate, Obama proclaimed:

The presidential power to veto legislation is one I take seriously. But I also take seriously my responsibility to the American people. And because this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest — including our security, safety, and environment — it has earned my veto.

– Barack Hussein Obama

Truly, the only reason this is newsworthy or noteworthy is that Obama actually lived up to his promise – threat really – this time. He’s promised to veto anything that the Republican-led Congress puts on his desk thirteen separate times and this was the first bill in question.

Nor is the stated reason for Obama’s veto shocking for any reason other than its rare honestly. The boy’s stated reason wasn’t even the environment or Global Warming; it was that he demands the approval process solely the jurisdiction of the Executive branch, i.e., him and his people, specifically his State Department.

Of course, Obama is well and truly within his rights as POTUS to veto any and all bills that reach his desk and to do so for any reason or no reason at all. It’s just sad that America is stuck with a POTUS who chooses to excessive those rights out of narcissism, petulance, and childishness.
