An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
I don’t even know where to start! Three Jewish boys are murdered, presumably by Hamas associates(definitely by muslims) , and the so called palestinians celebrate. A few crazy Jews murder a palestinian boy and Hamas pretty much declares war on Israel. Does anyone else see the irony? The hypocrisy? Both acts were brutal, and unforgivable. The Israelis arrests the Jews who committed the horrendous act, and WILL prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Do you think anyone in the Gaza strip will arrest the murderous thugs who killed the three Jewish boys? Oh HELL no they won’t. As I said, the palies celebrated their murder.
For the past few days, rockets have been raining down on the Israelis from Gaza. Who does the Obama administration blame? You got it! The Israelis. They don’t seem to be aware that the Israelis have tried to live in peace with the “disputed territories’, all of which is part of Israel. The muslims in those areas refuse to live in peace! They don’t want Jews or Christians, or anyone else to live….PERIOD! We could learn a great deal from the Israelis about protecting our homeland, but to admit that the Israelis are better at something, actually a LOT of somethings, would go against Obama’s ‘religion’.
Do the Obamatrons not know the centuries of persecution of the Jewish people? It didn’t matter what country to which they were forced to flee, they would always end up being persecuted, even the U.S., which touts a 1st Amendment right of the freedom to worship as one chooses. Finally, after centuries of wandering from one country to another, they finally get their homeland back, and all hell breaks lose. One tiny strip of land, only a fraction of the land that God gave them, and they are suppose to up and leave again? After one of those most telling examples of man’s inhumanity to his fellow man, the Jews finally get to go home, and all hell breaks lose once again. They have been fighting for their lives for centuries, does the Obama administration think that just because HE says so, the Israelis are going to open their arms to those who want to slaughter them? Again?
There will be no living in peace with the muslims because the muslims do not want peace. They want to murder. They had the opportunity to make a garden of the desert, support themselves, have economic growth. Instead, they chose to destroy everything that the Jewish people had built, and left in Gaza when the Israelis agreed to give up that land to the muslims. They screwed themselves, and we’re suppose to feel sorry for them, and give them billions of dollars? I don’t freakin’ think so.
Centuries of hatred perpetrated by the teachings of a murderous pedophile, who was snubbed by the Jews who refused to turn away from the one TRUE God and convert to his idol worship, will not vanish. Obama knows this, and refuses to face reality. Islam is a cult of hatred and death.
Barack Hussein Obama, and his lackeys, might stand with the lying, thieving, murdering muslims, but….
Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you’re quite aware of the “humanitarian crisis” we are having along the southern border of these United States. Nancy Pelosi, the botox queen, says “We are all Americans”. Well, in that, she might be right. The western hemisphere is called the Americas after all. Here’s where we have a problem with her statement: We might all be Americans, but we are not all U.S. citizens, any more than we are all Mexican citizens, or El Salvadoran citizens, or Honduras citizens, and… Well, you get the picture. We are separate countries with different cultures.
The U.S. was founded on certain principles that are not found in other cultures. Over the past couple of centuries, many have escaped tyrannical governments to come here, live free from fear of the tyranny that rules their countries. The majority came legally. Many did not, but once upon a time, those who didn’t come through the proper channels assimilated into our culture, learned the language, eventually becoming citizens, usually contributing to society in one way or another.
The argument I hear so often is that we are all immigrants. Well, yes and no. Our ancestors were immigrants. We are citizens, born and bred, learning the history of our nation, and having a rich appreciation for the sacrifices of those who came before us. Those who are invading our southern border now are not immigrants. They are illegal invaders, and should be treated as such. They are breaking the very laws that our illustrious current resident of the White House refuses to enforce, along with his criminal side kick, the U.S. Attorney General. This is creating the crisis, and should be laid directly upon both their heads.
The introduction of diseases that have been eradicated for decades is going to cause a bigger problem than those who refuse to open their eyes understand. We don’t have widespread chicken pox, measles, drug resistant TB, and any number of others diseases thanks to our once terrific health care system, vaccinations, and our penchant for good hygiene. And let’s not forget about scabies. Not only are these children, who I don’t blame, putting a serious strain on our limited resources, but they are bringing diseases with them.
No, I don’t blame the kids. They didn’t wake up one morning and decide to take a stroll through Mexico to get to the U.S. I blame their parents, some who are already here illegally. What kind of parent leaves their kids, and takes off to parts unknown? What kind of parent sends their kids with criminals, hoping they’ll make it safely to a foreign country? I consider this child abuse, and we have enough abusers of children in this country already. We don’t need more!
Many seem to forget, it’s not just children who are flooding across the borders. We also have OTMs (other than Mexican), which should be changed to OTA, Other Than American. Those of Middle Eastern origin pass for Hispanic, using Hispanic names. It’s quite obvious to anyone with a brain, they aren’t coming looking for the American Dream. They are coming to promote the American Nightmare.
I blame, not only the drug cartels, who have made life a living hell in the border states, but the current resident. He has failed in his duties as President of the United States, and should be treated accordingly. HE has created, and encouraged, this humanitarian crisis.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel sought to explain and defend the prisoner swap of five Taliban leaders for American Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, during the first public hearing on the controversial trade since it was executed nearly two weeks ago.
In testimony before the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday, Hagel said both he and President Obama were on board with the decision — amid some confusion in Washington over who technically approved the trade.
“I want to make one fundamental point — I would never sign any document or make any agreement … that I did not feel was in the best interests of this country,” Hagel said. “Nor would the president of the United States, who made the final decision with the full support of his national security team.”
Earlier in the week, White House officials stressed that Hagel signed off on the decision without clearly saying who made the final call.
We all know who made the final call. We all know that nothing like this can happen without the say so of the so called ‘Commander in Chief’. Contrary to what the White House wants to believe, we are not all uninformed Obama droolers.
Now, as to what is in the ‘best interest of the country’. You blew it Bubba! Letting 5 murdering savages free to roam the streets of Qatar for a year, a country that has aided and abetted terrorists for years, was NOT in the best interest of this country. Trading those five for what is claimed by his teammates to be a deserter was really a STUPID idea. Whoever came up with in the first place should be reviled, and those who ‘signed off on it’ should be prosecuted.
The disgust I have for this administration truly has no adequate words.
In no particular order:
Black Panther voter intimidation case dropped.
Fast and Furious
Eric Holder perjury times 2
…and many more. Let’s not forget the constant violations of the oath of office, and shredding the U.S. Constitution.
Just when is enough ENOUGH?!
Do you ever feel like you’ve woken up in a parallel universe? I’ve been having that feeling for the last 5 1/2 years, and it seems to be getting worse. I’m not sure how I got here, but I’d like to find the exit now….please. I want to go home.
I use to live in a place where, with hard work, people could succeed, or fail, on their own merits. Children were reasonably educated, and mostly respectful of their elders. Sex wasn’t 24/7 on the idjit box entertainment, including commercials, and sex before marriage was frowned upon. People knew when they had done something wrong, and felt shame. Most people took responsibility for their actions, apologized when they screwed up, and tried to rectify the situation.
Come to think of it, the universe of yesteryear has been slowly colliding with this one for quite a while. I guess I really didn’t notice it as much as I do now. This universe has become the upside down world of now, and I’m not real fond of it, if I do say so myself. I want to go home.
When did the two universes become completely switched? Well, I’d say the real collision began in 2007, and became complete in 2009. Since then, I have been living in a world I don’t recognize, and don’t particularly like.
Why 2007? Well, if you’ll remember, that’s when the gavel was handed over to Nancy Pelosi, and things started getting completely out of hand. We had a Democrat controlled Congress, and the irresponsible spending became the norm. Oddly enough, that’s why the Republicans had lost, the excessive spending. I guess the country thought that the Dems would keep their word, and be responsible. That’s what you get when you have uneducated voters. I’m not saying they are stupid, just ignorant. Democrats have always loved to spend other people’s money. Why would the country think this time it would be better?
George W Bush has been blamed for the excessive spending, and maybe in some ways, he does bear some responsibility. That TARP deal wasn’t a good idea. It just started the ball rolling. Now, we can’t seem to get those in Congress to understand, it’s not their money they keep giving away. The country is hurting, but they keep using dummied up numbers to tell us everything is just peachy. 6.3 (?) unemployment? How about more like 12 %, and it’s even higher in the Democrat control inner cities.
Our economic outlook seems bleak. Unless WE get control of those who are suppose to be working in our best interest, it’s going to get even more bleak.
Yes, we’ve been fighting two wars, and that does put a strain on spending. But instead of supplying our military with the equipment they need to do the job, they have been stripped to bare bones, using what little they have to try to fight and enemy that doesn’t care about the Rules of Engagement, and uses ours to murder those in uniform just trying to do what they were trained to do. They come home physically, mentally, and emotionally maimed, and what does our government do to thank them? Put them on waiting lists, perhaps hoping they’ll die instead of getting the care they need, and deserve.
In the last 5 1/2 years, I have gone from being proud of my country, to absolutely appalled. This must be a parallel universe, because no rational people would put an incompetent, anti-American person in charge. There’s a reason the Founders created 3 separate branches of government. A separation of powers is necessary for a true Republic to function. The duties and responsibilities are laid out in plain English in the U.S. Constitution. Those lines of separation have been so blurred in recent years, I’m not surprised that so many have their heads in the sand.
Have you ever watched some of those videos where a guy asked people on the street to name the three branches of government? Most can’t name them. That’s truly embarrassing, and those who were hired to educate them should be extremely ashamed. Mind you, these are typically college students that are being asked the questions.
Yes, I am definitely in a parallel universe. No rational person would give billions of dollars to the enemies of our nation, and our allies, the enemy our young men and women are fighting. No rational person would make it more difficult for those same young men and women to do their job, to the point that the Rules of Engagement, put into place by politicians who have never worn a uniform, are getting them killed, and maimed.
No rational person would trade 5 top ranked enemy combatants, those who have plotted, and murdered American citizens, on and off the battle field, for one lone person, who many of his comrades are saying is a deserter, and possibly an active collaborator. No rational person would give in to the demands of the enemy, and hand over hardened enemies of the United States, with the flimsiest of excuse for such actions, and nearly no conditions placed upon them after their release. This is most definitely a parallel universe, where the purpose of war is not to win, but to placate the enemy.
This is not a sane world where I was born. This has become a very dangerous place to live, and I want to go home!
Amid jubilation Saturday over the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl from captivity by the Taliban, senior Republicans on Capitol Hill said they were troubled by the means by which it was accomplished, which was a deal to release five Afghan detainees from the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Top Republicans on the Senate and House armed services committees went so far as to accuse President Obama of having broken the law, which requires the administration to notify Congress before any transfers from Guantanamo are carried out.
“Trading five senior Taliban leaders from detention in Guantanamo Bay for Bergdahl’s release may have consequences for the rest of our forces and all Americans. Our terrorist adversaries now have a strong incentive to capture Americans. That incentive will put our forces in Afghanistan and around the world at even greater risk,” House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. McKeon (R-Calif.) and the ranking Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, James M. Inhofe (Okla.), said in a joint statement.
Lawmakers were not notified of the Guantanamo detainees’ transfer until after it occurred.
The law requires the defense secretary to notify relevant congressional committees at least 30 days before making any transfers of prisoners, to explain the reason and to provide assurances that those released would not be in a position to reengage in activities that could threaten the United States or its interests.
I am thankful that this young man was finally released. Sgt. Bergdahl has got a long road to recovery from his ordeal. I pray that he will get the help he needs, unlike many other of our heroes. I know he has a support system in the form of family and friends. My prayers are with them all.
They could have gotten him home a long time ago, if only the Pakistanis would cooperate in this ‘war on terror’. Alas, they are no ally to the U.S. They know, as do the more informed of our country, that this isn’t an actual ‘war on terror’. It’s a war started by muslims over a thousand years ago. It’s just increased with modern weaponry, like airplanes, RPGs, IEDs, etc. For a cult that wants to conquer the world, through murder and intimidation, send it back to the 7th century, they sure do make use of a lot of modern technology.
While I’m grateful at the release, I am also furious that this administration has, once again, broken the law. They have put American lives at risk, again. I am of the mind that this administration doesn’t give a damn about Americans, or America. I have believed he was a threat to this nation before he slid into the White House.
The promise that those 5 will not return to the ‘battlefield’ is ridiculous. Taqiyya is a norm for muslims.
One man can only spin so much.
Following the announcement this morning that he had accepted the resignation of Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shineski “with regret,” President Obama has just announced that Jay Carney is resigning as press secretary.
Apparently he’s not leaving right away but he’s telling the media right at this moment that it’s coming.
I’m watching the announcement live as I write this and he says he doesn’t know what he’s going to do next.
This is the sort of thing the Washington crowd will get pretty excited about but it doesn’t really matter a hill of beans to ordinary people, except I suppose to the extent that a more or less effective purveyor of the White House’s BS might impact how effectively the administration can shove its big government agenda down the nation’s throat.
Ok….who’s next? I am hoping the head rat will go, but we wouldn’t be that lucky!
President Obama announced Friday that embattled Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki would take the fall for the rapidly growing scandal over veterans’ health care, accepting his resignation under pressure from members of both parties.
“A few minutes ago, Secretary Shinseki offered me his own resignation,” Obama said, after meeting with Shinseki at the White House. “With considerable regret, I accepted.”
The president announced that Shinseki would resign after he received an update on an internal review of the problems at the VA. The review showed the problems were not limited to just a few facilities, he said, adding: “It’s totally unacceptable. Our veterans deserve the best.”
He said Shinseki told him he did not want to be a distraction.
“I agree,” Obama said. “We don’t have time for distractions. We need to fix the problem.”
Once again, Obama has done the wrong thing. Symbolism. That’s all this is. Shinseki takes the fall for the failures of the Obama administration. But this was faster than I thought. Obama doesn’t fire anyone, even though there have been many who SHOULD have been canned. Eric Holder comes to mind.
Here’s something to think about….no matter who replaces this man, until real action is taken to resolve the serious problems, nothing will change. Fire the incompetent management. Problems have been known for years, but… And here we are….veterans are dying. What’s more important? Political appointments, or the heroes that gave so much for this nation.
Well, apparently, Congress is impotent, or maybe incompetent? Once again, the imperialist is bypassing Congress to implement another disastrous regulation. Congress shot down cap and trade because it would be a burden on the American people. Like many of the current residents ideas, pushing “climate change’ would do more harm that would put many Americans out of work, raise energy prices, and harm the families who just want to live in peace.
When it comes to the climate, nothing we do is going to make a difference. Our skies are cleaner than they were 40 years ago, the temperature has risen less than one degree, yet the EPA, in all their brilliance, have decided that they should put even more regulations on the current power plants. Where is the logic? Well, we’re talking about an over bloated government agency, there is NO logic.
We have a marine being held in a Mexican jail because he took a wrong turn. What is Congress doing to get him released? Are they going to sanction Mexico? Of course not. Article 1, Section 8: To regulate commerce with foreign nations….
I guess the current resident of the White House watches a LOT of TV, when he’s not on the golf course, or jetting around the world on vacation. I mean, since that’s the only time he ever finds out about ANYTHING that’s going on in his administration.
If Ronald Reagan, one of our greater presidents (not perfect, great), was called the “Teflon President”, what would be appropriate to call the current resident of the White House?
Apparently, Geoff Dyer, of Financial Times, thinks this Veterans Affairs issue might be a real scandal that could bring down Obama, as opposed to the “contrived outrage over Benghazi“, and the “improving fortunes of Obamacare“. I guess he missed the IRS targeting scandal, Fast and Furious/the death of Brian Terry, the EPA, Solyndra, and a good number of other incidents, both minor and major, during this administration’s tenure. Nearly six years of lying, cheating, stealing, and Mr Dyer finally notices? I guess he must be a Democrat. They seem to have a large number of blinders with their glasses, in a variety of colors just to make things seem oh so pretty!
Richard Griffin, the department’s acting inspector general, admitted on Thursday that its review could lead to criminal charges.
Start at the top! Obama nominated a general, a war hero, with no business management experience, so I’m think Obama should be the first, but that’s just me. Next, the senators who approved the man. I’d hate to think Shinseki intentionally let vets die, but he has had 5 years to keep Obama’s ‘promise’ to get things back on track. I mean, after all, the whistle was blown quite a few times, and instead of getting to the bottom of the problem, the blowers were fired, and vets continued to suffer and die. It goes without saying, those who mismanaged the facilities, in order to get fat bonuses at the cost of the health and lives of our vets, should be put UNDER the jail!
In the first political casualty of the scandal, Robert Petzel, the department’s undersecretary for heath, resigned on Friday.
Why does this continue to be repeated, when it’s, basically, a false assumption. Even O’Reilly got it wrong, which he tends to do a lot lately. The VA announced his retirement last September fer cryin’ out loud! It was even on the VA website. He’s not a ‘political casualty’! He’s looking like a scapegoat.
Blaming the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan is another way this administration has of blaming his predecessor. They do that a lot. In reality, the VA has been mismanaged since its inception in 1930. We’ve had a few wars since then, so I don’t think the issue is the returning vets from these two recent wars.
In all honesty, I think we have so many vets returning now with debilitating injuries, physical and mental, due to the lack of a real mission, as in WINNING THE WAR. After all, isn’t that what they are trained to do? Win? Destroy the enemy, come home in victory! “Winning hearts and minds” is a job for missionaries, not trained killing machines!
$154 BILLION, and this is the best they can do for our vets? Oh yes, let’s not forget that half BILLION ($500,000,000) spent on furniture for the managers offices. Priorities, don’cha know. /snark
This administration has a lot of American blood on its hands, from both here and abroad. People are dying, from their gun running schemes, the lack of critical care due to Obamadontcare, illegal/criminals allowed to run free on our streets, the lack of security at our consulates, the crappy equipment and ROEs, to the criminal mismanagement at the VA facilities. Yes, a LOT of American blood!
Many serve at the ‘pleasure of the president’. Well, the president serves at the pleasure of the people. The people are not pleased! It’s time for this administration to show some integrity, for a change, and resign.
NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) was founded in 1958 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower (R).
In 1962, President John F. Kennedy (D) gave a speech at Rice University stating: We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
In 1969, I, along with millions of other Americans, watched as Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the moon.
In 2010, the current resident of the White House told the head of NASA “to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science … and math and engineering.”
In 2011, he ended the Space Shuttle program.
Now, we have a stand off with the former (and re-emerging Soviet Union). The U.S. is to be banned from the International Space Station (ISS), an orbiting space habitat used for research, which the United States paid the majority to build. Why? We have no way to get our astronauts to the station due to the lack of foresight of this administration.
Maybe the muslims can use their ‘good feelings’ to get them up there? This is beyond embarrassing…it’s down right shameful!
If I ever become president, and my posse and I get busted via email lying about the root cause of how four Americans, including one of our ambassadors, got slaughtered during an organized, Muslim terrorist attack in Benghazi on September 11th, I sure as heck hope an old, gross, super-rich, turkey-necked, xenophobe goes on some crazy, bigoted tirade to his younger side-chick and she records it and sells it to TMZ who then releases it the same week the damning report of my negligence and deception comes out – because that abso-frickin’-lutely is all that it took for the MSM to snub the Benghazi email story about Obama and his culpable team of crap-slingers and over-report the LA Clippers’ owner’s racist rant. A rant that was so vile and heinous that it rivaled one of Harry Reid’s or Al Shaprton’s “hate speeches.”
In all fairness, the MSM and the various cable “news” outlets didn’t totally brush off the incriminating Benghazi cover-up email. They did report on it. Being the good state run media outlets of the Obama regime that they are, they did what any good spin-doctor would do and changed their talking points from blaming a clumsy YouTube video to now accusing FOX News.
Have ya ever noticed that when something extremely important breaks concerning the state of our nation, or is detrimental to the administration, there’s always a ‘distraction’ that the lame stream covers 24/7? If there isn’t, they go out and find something, like a dog rescued a cat, or some such. I don’t even know why they call themselves ‘news’ broadcasts anymore. TMZ is more informative than ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, or CNN. Oh…wait… I think I heard that CBS gave the damning email a whopping 46 seconds.
I now know why this administration is so screwed up! It’s being run by a bunch of socialists with the mentality of 12 year olds. Did you happen to watch Special Report yesterday evening? You did? Well, there ya go! There’s the answer, in a suit and tie. People like Tommy “Dude” Vieter, and that’s all it takes to figure this whole thing out.
I have noticed juvenile behavior from many of this administration’s spokes people….Jay Carney stands out….but this guy? He was the cherry on the icing in immaturity. I find it hard to believe he was ever in a position of power in any administration. But then, this isn’t just any administration, is it. It’s the one that has delivered on that promise of ‘hope and change’. We’ve lost our hope for a better future for our kids, and the country has changed to something unrecognizable.
I wonder how many administrations would go out of their way to lie so often to the ones who pay their salaries, and expect them to keep lapping it up after almost 6 years. What administration would deny security to the people who have been put in harms way? This one has made a career of doing just that, not only in Benghazi, but in Afghanistan, and other places where our soldiers are deployed. The safety and security of American citizens is at the bottom of this administration’s ‘to do’ list.
To the alphabet ‘news’, and Obama’s lapdogs in Congress, this is yesterday’s news. To the families, friends, and a large number of Americans, this is about 4 citizens, murdered at the hands of terrorists, and the administration lied. It continues to lie. It was all about Obama’s re-election; one I honestly do not believe he won.
We want the truth. We want the heads of those responsible for the murder of those 4 Americans. We want those responsible for the lack of security behind bars. And most of all, we want a leader who knows what the hell he is doing, instead of attending galas, fundraisers, and playing golf. A man of integrity would have resigned. Obama is not a man of integrity.
Being woken up before 6am, to chat with the kids before they went off on their adventures, was not exactly what I had in mind when I told ‘em to wake me before they left, but… here I am. I wouldn’t say I’m wide awake, cuz that won’t happen till tomorrow, and even then, it’s questionable. Spud to day care before 10? I think I can handle that….if I set my alarm, and turn the volume to MAX!
So, now, the house is quiet, the dogs are fed, and stretched out in their favorites spots on the couch. I figures it was time to see what I missed yesterday. I pull up Drudge, and find….yep! World is still going to hell in a hand basket!
Now, you know full well that the DoJ, with that jackass at the head, won’t do a damn thing to stop the corruption at the IRS, or anywhere else in the Obama administration. With the current resident of the White House stating that there’s not even a ‘smidgen’ of corruption in HIS IRS, with Holder’s puppet strings in his hands, the department that SHOULD deal with such actions won’t do a damn thing! I mean seriously…does anyone believe for even a moment there is any LAW enforcement involved? There is no law unless Obama says there is, and that’s only when it suits him, and his cronies. So, will the House use the power they do have, and have the scum bucket behind bars, where she belongs?
No corruption, eh? Well, I’m sorry, but the IRS is SUPPOSE to be non partisan, but when you read about the campaigning for Obama in 2012, you have to wonder just what type of people are they hiring?
I wonder if the socialists at Organizing for Action would hire Lerner? I wouldn’t put her in charge of the decorations for a kids birthday party, but then again, I do have some sense, whereas they are lacking in any logic. They CLAIM to be non profit, and non partisan. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
If the Republicans don’t put their big boy pants on, and start acting like ‘representatives of the people’, then they might as well pack up and go home. We’re pretty damn tired of all the wishy washy behavior.
There is no doubt in my mind that Elijah Cummings is corrupt, and should be kicked out of Congress. A mouthpiece for the Obama administration, fighting tooth and nail, to stop the hearings on the IRS. Could it be because HE was involved? Quite possible. Well, he is a democrat after all, and in my mind, the word corruption and democrat go hand in hand.
Targeting anyone who wants to stop the voter fraud has become a Democrat’s dream. They apparently WANT fraud so they can win elections, gain more power, and have the ability to control everyone’s life! Well, you do know that they believe you smart enough, right? Giving one political party information on the opposition, through a federal entity, paid for by the very taxpayers who are being targeted REEKS of corruption.
It is way past time to repeal the 16th Amendment, and disband the government’s gestapo!
