And We’re Still Not Bothered

I’ve posted before that America doesn’t mind seeing lesbians engage in PDAs. I’ve even reiterated the point to see if my negative results could be replicated and they were.

So, to push the boundaries of societal acceptance in furthering my theory that the lesbians are screaming about something that exists only in their minds, I’ll add interraciality into mix. I’m betting that there will still be no outrage, at least not from the bulk of American society.

Adieu Et Bon Débarras

Adieu Et Bon Débarras, Paris!

Adieu Et Bon Débarras, Paris!

Goodby and good riddance, Paris – specifically the The Paris Agreement which was brokered in France during the COP 21 talks. All the signs are present that President Trump will remove America from this Climate Change Agreement. Once again proving he’s a political outsider, strongly looks as if Trump will keep yet another campaign promise.

I’m happy with this and our domestic enemies are livid over it – weeping, wailing, gnashing their teeth, and promising retribution. I will, however give these Liberals and Progressives a small measure of credit this time. This isn’t just another episode of their derangement. President Trump pulling America out of Paris Agreement is apocalyptic for their hopes and dreams of a “greener,” weaker America.

And yes! I’m big enough to admit that I’m petty and mean enough so that a significant part of my happiness with leaving the Paris Agreement is that the Left is so butt-hurt over doing so.

Here, however, is one important point, though not the key point for me: This Paris Agreement isn’t actually that horrific from my point of view. It is and was largely meaningless and without any provisions – or even delusions thereof – of any of its various articles being actually binding or enforceable upon the the 196 signatories. In this it is a lot like NATO.

Is It A Treaty Or Not?

No. My primary reason for being happy about leaving the Paris Agreement is that it really wasn’t legally enacted in the first place or, at least, it was easily arguable that it wasn’t. This is because it’s a treaty or, at least it certainly seems to meet the legal requirement for being one, and Obama just signed it as if he were king without ever sending it to the Senate for ratification, which is constitutionally required. So, if it is a treaty, it is not one that America ever entered into and President Trump would just be correcting an illegal act by Obama.

Then again, some legal experts argue that the Paris Agreement isn’t a treaty, despite it easily meeting the prima facie standard of such under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, which states “an international agreement concluded between States in written form and governed by international law” (VCLT art. 2.1(a)) is a treaty. It was, after all, specially and specifically crafted to not be a treaty so that it didn’t need to undergo the required scrutiny by the various states that such things entail. In other words, it was written in a manner that Obama could sign it unilaterally under the auspices of the UNFCCC, instead of sending to the Senate for approval. So it could be argued that this was just an Executive Agreement under the law.

If the latter is held to be true, this is ironic in the extreme since Obama’s signing the Paris Agreement violated the 1992 Executive Agreement with the Senate to submit for their review and ratification any future agreements which contained “targets and timetables” for emissions reductions by the US.

So, there it is. Either it’s a treaty; in which case, it’s null and void due to its unconstitutional and illegal enactment; or it’s simply an Executive Agreement by Obama; in which case, it ceased being binding on January 20th, 2017 and President Trump is well and completely within his rights to either formally rescind our nation’s participation or simply ignore it in whole or in part and to do so for any or no reason whatsoever.

Either way, President Trump would be doing the right thing in my opinion. Whether it was executive overreach on Obama’s part or his simply violating the agreement under which the Senate ratified the UNFCCC in the first place, putting an end to it would the right thing.

Walls Need Gates

Walls Need Gates

Despite the nonsensical and oikophobic rantings of the Liberals and Progressives and the ungrateful and disloyal screams of many of the Hispanics already inside America’s borders, our country does need dramatically increased border security and most definitely needs a border wall between us and Mexico. But walls need gates and we also do need immigration reform as well.

After all – again, despite and in despite of the nonsensical and oikophobic rantings of the Liberals and Progressives – there isn’t and has never been any reason that compassion and enlightened self-interest cannot be paired. Hence, we shouldn’t be keeping beautiful, nubile Latinas from entering America in search of a better life.

So, Hell yes! Vet them properly and let them in. Let’s turn the Left’s desired genocide on its ear and make into a good thing for America. Really! Just over four out of every 100 marriages (4.3%) in the US is already between a non-Hispanic and a Hispanic – the most common interracial marriage in fact, accounting for 43% of them – and one out of ever four Hispanic marriages in the US are already with non-Hispanics. We might as well work with these facts rather than against them.

If life and politics are going to give America lemons, we should smile and make limonada. 😉
