You Sound Off!
Joe, as you know, my popularity numbers have been dropping faster than a free-falling safe. I’ve tried all the usual stuff like blaming my predecessor for everything, making up personal experience stories and flat out lying. The economy is in the toilet, and we are fighting so many wars that they even want me to give back my Peace Prize. I’ve tried the liberal-standard “deny, deflect, delay” schemes and nothing has worked, so I’m in a bind. You know we even got the kids a dog and he really likes peeing in the Rose Garden. Michelle is really fond of all the servants, and I’m hooked on being able to play golf on all the best courses and not having to worry about inconvenient tee times. My Messiah image is getting shopworn, and people are talking about me being a one-term president.
You, on the other hand, have been a constant source of much amusement with your gaffes and have earned the reputation of being the village idiot. Hillary said, “It takes a village.” People can’t wait to see which foot you will put in your mouth next.
I’m confused. In order to get on an airplane, open a bank account, withdraw money, cash checks, pick up movie or concert tickets, enter a Federal building, apply for Food Stamps, or buy alcohol or prescription drugs, you often need a photo ID.
Democrats charge that requiring photo IDs (to prevent voter fraud) is racist, and meant to simply disenfranchise voters and suppress minority voting. So, I wonder, how have minorities done the above-mentioned without IDs?
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has asked the United Nations to intervene to block state voter ID laws. The United Nations? In the United States? Wake up, America!
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is the new vehicle to ensure our oppression by a tyrannical government. The threat in this bill to the 6th Amendment and, thus, American citizens is real. The NDAA actually grants – indeed, mandates — immense unConstitutional power to the White House.
The big deal over the New Hampshire primary election and Nevada caucuses would be laughable if it weren’t so sad. Does anyone care about how the Framers of the Constitution designed for the President of the United States to be selected? We are so far gone that it is doubtful that we can even have an intelligent conversation with anyone in the media, the elected officials, those running for office, political science professors, Constitutional law professors, Tea Party leaders or any of the electorate to discuss what the Framers of the U.S. Constitution had in mind.
If you are not part of the solution, then you are contributing to the problem.
“Opinions,” it has been said (often and variously) are like unmentionable parts of the human anatomy: Everybody has one, and they come in different shapes and sizes. But this is the aspect of the individual opinion that is largely left unsaid: To qualify as an opinion, the idea cannot be a fact. This single defining distinction determines the quality and, therefore, the credibility of one’s opinion because it goes to how opinions are produced; and the method of production determines the species.
