An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

The Justice Department, in its lawsuit filed Tuesday against the Arizona immigration law, repeatedly cited concerns that the policy has undermined and interfered with its relationship with Mexico — raising questions about whether foreign policy has any place in the domestic case.
The lawsuit generally argues that the federal government has the primary responsibility for immigration policy and should be able to preempt — and nullify — the Arizona law.
But as part of the complaint, the Obama administration warns the Arizona law could damage ties with Mexico and other countries and has already had “foreign policy implications for U.S. diplomatic relations.”

Seriously? They are worried about Mexicans? Excuse me, but what about Americans? Shouldn’t WE be the PRIMARY concern for ANY administration? Bush didn’t much care, and it’s become more and more obvious that Barack Hussein Obama and his minions would be pleased as punch if the United States of America was no more! They sure are working hard to achieve that right now!
How DARE they side with ANY foreign country over the safety and well being of LEGAL residents and citizens! To me, that is treason, plain and simple!
This word imports a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance.
The Constitution of the United States, Art. III, defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. This offense is punished with death. By the same article of the Constitution, no person shall be convicted of treason, unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act, or on confession in open court. (source)
Well, I’d say we have a LOT more than just two witnesses, wouldn’t you?
Bill Kristol Must Resign

Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele was absolutely right. Afghanistan is Obama’s war and, judging by other recent Democratic ventures in military affairs, isn’t likely to turn out well.
It has been idiotically claimed that Steele’s statement about Afghanistan being Obama’s war is “inaccurate” — as if Steele is unaware Bush invaded Afghanistan soon after 9/11. (No one can forget that — even liberals pretended to support that war for three whole weeks.)
Yes, Bush invaded Afghanistan soon after 9/11. Within the first few months we had toppled the Taliban, killed or captured hundreds of al-Qaida fighters and arranged for democratic elections, resulting in an American-friendly government.
When Linda O’Boyle was diagnosed with bowel cancer, her doctors told her she could boost her chances of survival by adding the drug cetuximab to her regimen. But the rationing body for Britain’s National Health Service, the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), had previously ruled that the drug was not cost-effective and therefore would not be paid for by the government. So O’Boyle liquidated her savings and paid for the drug herself. But this is not allowed under NHS rules. When government bureaucrats found out that O’Boyle had purchased the drug with her own money, she was denied NHS treatment and died within months.
Things are heating up in the Tennessee Governor’s race. Three major Republican candidates in the primary, and one Democrat.
Wamp and Ramsey dispute the notion that Haslam has earned consideration as the party front-runner and even McWherter was trying to stay neutral about his possible competition.
Personal opinion, the only thing I see as putting Haslam in the front is his numerous commercials. He’s got some good ones, but good commercials doesn’t mean that he’d be a good governor, does it? Shoot, D’Bama had some good commercials, and look how that turned out.
But McWherter’s campaign has gone so far as to put out press releases specifically criticizing Haslam, and early in his morning appearance Tuesday, McWherter was attacking Haslam without saying his name by asserting the economic challenge facing the state “requires more of a candidate than simply juggling your statistics on TV ads to inflate your accomplishments.”
Don’t all politicians do that? Well, HONEST ones don’t. Honest politicians…..oxymoron? Yeah….I think so too. I’d prefer HONEST PUBLIC SERVANTS!
At another point, McWherter derided “trickle-down” economic theory, saying he subscribes to “trickle up” whereby first helping “working families” leads to greater prosperity. In recent weeks, Haslam’s campaign has promoted an endorsement from President Reagan’s economics policy advisor, Arthur Laffer, one of the strongest proponents of “trickle-down” or “supply side” economics.
Typical Democrat. The man doesn’t have a clue where jobs come from, and for some reason, he thinks he’d make a good Governor? Trickle up? Seriously? In order for those families to be working, there have to be jobs. For jobs, you need those “evil” rich men, and corporations. Working families don’t create jobs. No offense, but they don’t.
Contrary to what some on the left (aka Democrats) think, conservatives aren’t heartless. We DO care about the poor and needy. We just don’t believe it’s the government’s job to take care of them. It’s not “Charity begins in Washington, D.C.” or “Nashville”. No, it’s ‘Charity begins at home’. Home is family, church, neighbors, and community. NOT gubmint! “Trickle up”? Give me a flippin’ break!
