Hear ye! Hear ye! The King hath made a proclamation!

From this point further, let it be known that laws no longer matter, says King NObama. Sure, Congress can pass legislation, but as King, his highness can decide which laws shall govern the kingdom. And now that the King has only two years left on the throne, it’s time to pull out all the stops to follow through on promises made to special interests, including illegal immigrants (never say “undocumented”, a euphemism suggesting false citizenship is akin to misplaced vehicle registration), whose children and grandchildren are natural born citizens and mostly voting Democrats.

Call it executive action or call it reckless disregard for the rule of law, if you want to be more truthful. What America needs less than just about anything is a President with nothing to lose deciding that he can do whatever he damn well pleases for the next two years. If you think we’ve been on the wrong path, you ain’t seen nothing yet if NObama is hellbent to cement his legacy as the President who sacrificed his country for his party, his book deal, and his future as a high priced public speaker.

While many Americans bemoan the persistent stalemate in Congress, I happen to be of the opinion that government is not about making more laws. It’s about making as few laws as possible, eliminating unnecessary laws, shrinking the role of government in the lives of free Americans, and ensuring that what little role is left for government is at least respected by all, including the current occupant of the White House. Abuse of power is reprehensible, and it is unbecoming of a man who portrayed himself so differently when he did have something to lose. I want my America back, and I want it now.

Not Illegal, Just Undocumented

No political correctness

I am not that old (39 to be exact), and I remember a day when illegal aliens were called illegal aliens.  Somehow, political correctness has gotten in the way of calling a crime a crime.  Or maybe the problem is that the crime is no longer a crime, it seems.  Laws were not enforced for decades, and now we have some 15 million, give or take, of these people in our country.  The idea of throwing them out is dismissed as heresy, in spite of existing laws.  But I digress.  Back to the topic of political correctness.  At some point, the phrase “illegal alien” got too offensive.  This is interesting, since it is not a racial epithet, expletive, or even a phrase that renders judgment.  It only conveys the facts.  Illegal obviously means the person does not belong here by law.  Alien, by definition, is an unnaturalized, foreign resident of a country.  So, rather than describing criminals by a technically accurate and unbiased phrase, we choose instead to minimize their crime to a simple case of missing documents–like getting pulled over and not having proof of insurance.  Heck, maybe they just lost their papers.  Give ’em a break, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens!
