Same-sex marriage: new block?

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court let stand without comment several rulings by different Circuit Courts of Appeals. Result: same-sex marriage now is the law in up to 33 States. Everyone, including de facto President Barack Obama, assumed same-sex marriage would soon be the rule across the land. But a federal judge in Puerto Rico just threw up another roadblock. This could set up a “circuit split” to force the Court to rule even faster than it planned.

Any devils left in hell?

The Obama rainbow flag. Democrats now run from this flag and the man.

Sometimes the actions of the Obama administration leave me with many questions. And sometimes I wish the answers to those questions were beyond my grasp. Here are some of my questions:

Texas voter ID law in effect

Ballot box. The Texas voter ID law will stop people from stuffing this.

This fall, the Texas Voter ID law will take full force and effect. The Supreme Court voted, six to two, not to stop it. The usual suspects complained about it. They suggested Texas meant to stop people from voting. True: Texas did mean to stop people from voting. Illegal voters.

Democrats walk out on Obama

Barack H. Obama gave one of the worst State of the Union addresses of his career.

Most Democrats running for office or especially for re-election, do not want Barack Obama to campaign for them. They say so. Today another class of Democrats gave them fresh reason to run from Obama. Democrat voters walked out on an Obama campaign stop. This while the most infamous commentator on a reliable Democratic Party house media organ excoriated the candidates running from Obama.

Whom to blame?

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Over the past 5 years this country has endured some of the most outrageous, incompetent, racially divisive, unbelievably stupid and downright incomprehensible actions that even the most cynical among us could ever have imagined.

Ebola, Obama, incompetence

Ebola

Ebola, Obama, incompetence. People will remember these three words together long after Obama leaves office. Obama has blundered badly at every stage of the Great West African Ebola Outbreak of 2014. A private company handled things better at its campus in the diseased region. Some think Obama hoped to gain an “October Surprise advantage” from this affair. He will not. He and the incompetent boobs he appointed, destroyed what advantage they had. Ebola tested Big Government, and found it lacking. Everyone should learn from this debacle. Learn what private persons and enterprises can do.

Ebola: distraction or weapon?

Ebola

Ebola has arrived in the United States. This arrival challenges the philosophical foundations of Progressivism and libertarianism. It also challenges the public policies of the last century. More to the point, Obama has blundered badly in the Ebola crisis. Or has he? More to the point: how can you handle it?

Why Obama needs protection

One would think with all of the admiration Barack Hussein Obama has from the American people (so the state-run media would have you believe) the least thing he would need would be more protection from the people he is reportedly serving. Yet, it was recently reported that he is building a wall around the White House at taxpayer expense to insulate himself from them.

21st Century Racketeers

The Constitution assumed local control of most government functions, not the current centralized system.

Back in the days of Al Capone, racketeers could usually be found in Speakeasies or clandestinely taking numbers on dimly lit street corners. Today’s racketeers can be more difficult to identify since they don’t carry Tommy guns in violin cases or go by the names of Scarface or Pretty Boy Floyd anymore. As times changed, so did their mode of operation. The racketeers of the 21st century may be charming but they are every bit as nefarious as their 20th century counterparts.

Eric Holder to Supreme Court?

Does de facto President Barack Obama want to appoint Eric Holder to the Supreme Court of the United States? Chuck Norris fears so. But he might want to take heart. Insurmountable resistance might come from a quarter no one expected.
