  1. Lets face the facts here, with the Presidents plate so full of scandals and monster laws like Illegal Immigration (illegal aliens), the madness at the Boarders, Obamacare, the IRS putting their 2 cents in where is doesn’t belong, Hamas and Israel, missing Airplanes, the breakdown of relations with Russia and the Ukraine and all those Edicts, and Executive power that Obama has imposed on Americans, that I call DICTATORIAL, not Presidential the ultimate question in my mind today is whether the government, especial the First lady should tell you what to eat! And even further yet enforce their views about it and make it the law! And in this guys opinion, the answer is no.
    The government job should be to worry about foreign relations, the security of our nation, and helping negotiate issues between us, our allies and even our enemies, keeping things within the States in order as well as our infrastructure. such as
    the roads and bridges, etc. etc. . It should not do anything else, as that is the job of the private sector...And as far as our eating habits, If a person wants to eat like a pig and be over weight or if a person wants to starve themselves, and be as thin or get fat as they want to that is their business. Now, I will understand if someone is harming themselves with food, and expect the taxpayer to pay for all is medical expenses. Well then, intervention may be necessary. But if he or she has private insurance, and want to eat themselves to death, then let them go for it.

    NO ONE should tell me how much soda I can drink, or if it should be diet. soda or not, or what color my lunch should be. If I don’t want it to be GREEN, the let it be BROWN! This is still a free country and I don’t need anyone in the government to tell me differently. Especially some stupid FAT ASS.

    I always thought we were a nation of diversity. That we were unique and different. And that we all have our own special needs, and desires, and that’s what make us free! . If that’s the case, then why are the rules set up for a one size fits all notion governed by the (White House)? Let’s face it, what may be fattening for one person, may barely satisfy another.

    We the American people know what is best for ourselves. We don’t need any invasion from a NON-Elected person, or the Food Police to tell us differently. Or to tell us to eat veggie-burgers instead of Hamburgers. .
    We don’t need any instructions from the dreams of our fathers, or their wives

    1. As to immigration laws, have you actually checked current law, specifically the one passed into law by Congress and signed by GWB?

      It is highly relevant to our current situation.

      Delete
    2. RN,
      Actually, I have checked the law. That law that GWB signed was very specific in a way that has now been overridden and expanded.

      That said, this is also true:

      Though the law’s main intent deals with human trafficking, it does contain a section that deals with children arriving in the U.S. illegally unaccompanied by an adult.

      I must also point out something else: it is only since October 2013 that we have seen this huge surge in Central American illegal immigrants. What is the reason for that timing? Hmmm?

  2. Talking shopping carts?

    Intimidation

    Harassment

    Bullying

    Sounds like the current White House posture to me.

    In actuality, in a world where so many people go to bed hungry at night, food becomes a means of thanking God for our blessings. A full food pantry with a variety of choices always reminds me that I am blessed to be an American. I should not feel guilty for the choices I make regarding a menu purchased with my earned income.

    Perhaps the food assistance program is a better place to start? I see individuals buying frozen pizzas, chips and cookies with their federal subsidy. Limit purchases to things which are green, leafy, crunchy, and no added sugar. smile

    2. Please listen, Idioto. It is my opinion -- and possibly that of Mrs. Swofford too -- that once you start to live on OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY, you forfeit your right to Freedom of Choice. PERIOD.

      As properly raised children quickly learn,when Mother and Father provide for all your needs, you do things THEIR way, if you know what's good for you.

      The Nanny State for good or for ill IS acting in loco parentis. That does not mean it has a moral obligation to transform itself into the nation's Fairy Godmother.

      Mrs. Obama on the other hand, MAY be well motivated, but basically she is trying to INTERFERE in the way INDEPENDENT individuals WANT to live hteir lives by imposing HER standards on THEM -- "for their own good."

      BALLS!.

  3. A difficult choice, because some -- like the brouhaha over school lunches and the Ovomit administration's claim that Global Tranquillity has improved on its watch (Ha ha ha! Ho ho ho! Hee hee hee! Tra la la! Sis Boom BAH! HUMBUG!) are so absurd they are risible.

    The official DECEPTION regarding the dispersal of migrant minors who should not be here under any circumstances is DEADLY serious, so I chose that, BUT the terrible business of attempting to cut off someone's hand for "theft" is horrifying, and has hideous implications about the role Islam wants to play, but it's still -- so far -- a LOCAL issue.

    Crypto-Communist Elizabeth "Pocahantas" Warren is a dangerous lunatic, of course, BUT it is the number who seem eager to FOLLOW the seductive blandishments she promotes that should concern us far more than the lady, herself.

    So I chose two.

  4. FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION:

    Please study the following list, decide what's good and bad about it, then see if you can find a RATIONAL way to DECONSTRUCT whatever strikes you as fallacious or misleading. [WARNING: IT ain't easy!]

    ELIZABETH WARREN's EEVEN TENETS for a FAIR and JUST SOCIETY:

    1. "We believe that Wall Street needs stronger rules and tougher enforcement, and we're willing to fight for it."

    2. "We believe in science, and that means that we have a responsibility to protect this Earth."

    3. "We believe that the Internet shouldn't be rigged to benefit big corporations, and that means real net neutrality."

    4, "We believe that no one should work full-time and still live in poverty, and that means raising the minimum wage."

    5. "We believe that fast-food workers deserve a livable wage, and that means that when they take to the picket line, we are proud to fight alongside them."

    6. "We believe that students are entitled to get an education without being crushed by debt."

    7. "We believe that after a lifetime of work, people are entitled to retire with dignity, and that means protecting Social Security, Medicare, and pensions."

    8. "We believe—I can't believe I have to say this in 2014—we believe in equal pay for equal work."

    9. "We believe that equal means equal, and that's true in marriage, it's true in the workplace, it's true in all of America."

    10. "We believe that immigration has made this country strong and vibrant, and that means reform."

    11. "And we believe that corporations are not people, that women have a right to their bodies. We will overturn Hobby Lobby and we will fight for it. We will fight for it!"

    And the main tenet of conservatives' philosophy, according to Warren? "I got mine. The rest of you are on your own."

    Notice, please, that Marxian-Fabian-Socialist-Progressive-Liberal-Democrat-Social Activist-Statists manage very cleverly to imply that their ideas are

    A) RIGHTEOUS,

    B) FAIR and JUST,

    C) KIND-HEARTED

    D) EMINENTLY FEASIBLE

    E) CHRIST-LIKE (!!!) even though most MFSPLDSAS's are sworn atheists)


    Because they couch their blandishments in terms that appear both kind-hearted and righteous, it is very difficult for anyone to refute their claims without opening himself to charges of being a Selfish, Bigoted, Hypocritical, Superstitious, Xenophobic Racist advocate of Violence and Brutality toward the Poor, the Handicapped, Women and anyone deemed "Different."

  7. Reminder:

    There is no earthly excuse for a public official uttering the words that came out of the mouth of Eleanor Holmes Norton, D-DC, the non-voting congressional representative for the District of Columbia.

    “You don’t have a right to know everything in a separation-of-powers government, my friend. That is the difference between a parliamentary government and a separation-of-powers government,” Norton firmly declared Friday during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing.

    2. That inscription was written with the legal immigrants of the past in mind, you know. People had to pay their fare to get here, get through the checks (granted, back then those were incredibly lenient, but times do change), with the understanding that those individuals would care for themselves.

      No free school. No minimum wage. No health care of any kind. Immigrants were factory workers, primarily, and got no mercy from anyone. If they lived, the had to earn their keep like everyone else.

      In the system we have, we don't expect anyone to "earn their keep." Everything is free. However, that comes at a cost. We realistically cannot support tens of thousand of people who do nothing for us. Immigration restrictions exist for this reason. You either are useful for us as a nation- or you don't come. That simple. It's the trade-off for having so much welfare. There has to be a reasonable expectation that the people on welfare are useful, or that the useful members of society outweigh them. Otherwise, the system simply collapses, with too many children and not enough breadwinners.

      These tens of thousand of illegals come with nothing to offer. They are sick, uneducated by First World standards, unskilled (again by our standards), poor and cannot be expected to be useful for another few years. We already have unskilled laborers aplenty thanks to all the other illegals. So these guys will simply tax our already over-burdened system and add to the unemployment group (not all, but a good amount). A thriving nation doesn't need that and simply cannot afford to do it forever.

      As for "freedom seekers"? There is something called legal immigration. Yes, it's a pain in the ass. And long. And takes a lot of work. But if they truly love our freedom and our country, they would RESPECT it enough to obey our laws and do the work necessary to enter as full citizens.

      It's like this. If you want a job, REALLY want it, what do you do? Force yourself into the office and refuse to leave? Coerce the boss to give it to you by pleading and stubbornness?
      Or interview for it, work to gain the skills needed, and find clever ways to make the company want you? Which one sounds like the better plan?

      We're not here to be the world's hospital here (we have Doctors Without Borders and many, many others who selflessly give their time overseas), or the world's jail.

    5. Fits the template for sure.

      We are a nation of immigrants, and immigration is a positive in the broader view. However, it must be controlled, our current laws and policy (official and unofficial) must be reformed. Issues and problems related to immigration (illegal) have been around for years and republicans as well as democrats amd business are responsible.

      But as is the norm these days the sitting president gets the blame. Americans are sometimes a strange people.

    6. Baysider,
      I'm glad that you mentioned Doctors Without Borders. My ophthalmic surgeon and many of his colleagues spend every Thanksgiving Week in Honduras and provide much needed medical services to the population there.

      The matter of immigrants' bringing in diseases is no small matter. Note this recent article about Chagas Disease (July 25, 2014): Focus on Northern Virginia as center of 'kissing bug disease'.

      Chagas is a serious disease -- not merely a nuisance affliction. Just take a quick look at this information in Wikipedia:

      Chagas disease /ˈtʃɑːɡəs/, or American trypanosomiasis, is a tropical parasitic disease caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi and spread mostly by insects known as Triatominae or kissing bugs. The symptoms change over the course of the infection. In the early stage, symptoms are typically either not present or mild and may include: fever, swollen lymph nodes, headaches, or local swelling at the site of the bite.[1] After 8–12 weeks, individuals enter the chronic phase of disease and in 60–70% it never produces further symptoms. The other 30 to 40% of people develop further symptoms 10 to 30 years after the initial infection. This includes enlargement of the ventricles of the heart in 20 to 30% leading to heart failure. An enlarged esophagus or an enlarged colon may also occur in 10% of people.

      Much more at the Wikipedia link.

  9. Ya, the results show that No. 2 is winning; that was my vote, too.
    I can't take almost anything of what the White House is doing to America anymore, but the lies can't continue. STOP hiding information from us, STOP lying, STOP STOP STOP.

    I absolutely guffaw at the nuts suggesting we hate immigrants somehow because we care about our own. I'm so disheartened at the TB and other diseases we'd finally conquered which are now threatening American children again. To me, our American kids COME FIRST. And ALWAYS will.

    The Statue of Liberty was a beacon to all those wanting to come and be part of the United States of America, not live off her. I'm a first and second generation, so I know what immigrants went through who so loved the freedom this country offered and couldn't wait to learn English (not live in newly created American barrios) and wouldn't take welfare if their lives depended on it.

    You see, folks...if we say we're against abortion, the left paints us as "denying women the right to their own body"....when all we mean is we don't want to pay for it. Nobody's denying them anything. When Hobby Lobby said they wouldn't pay for aborting drugs, the leftwingers forgot that they DO pay for six other contraceptives and always HAVE (sorry mrs. Pelosi and Hillary, your lies are just that...LIES), when Chick Filet's owner didn't champion gay marriage, all his happy gay employees said they love working there and it's always been gay friendly; he just doesn't agree with gay marriage. It's tiring to read the hate and mischaracterizations from the Left. And getting a bit boring, frankly; I think Americans are beginning to wake up, too.
    When I see Black families so angry about the immigrant situation, saying they want money spent on their childrens' schools, I so agree with their sentiment.

    No one wants to hurt the immigrant children...many of whom are miraculously bright enough to come across Mexico, 1500 miles, many alone...finding food and water. Astonishing, isn't it? (as IF)
    Stop the lies, leftwingers...it's not healthy for America and doesn't make you look good. Thanks!

  10. Dear "Interesting:

    You miss the primary point: I do not need a shopping cart to scold me on my food choices. I am a woman with a college degree and a science background. I am against adults scolding other adults. It is uncivilized.

    Anyone remember the days when food assistance meant showing up at a building and being handed beans, rice, cheese, etc? My grandparents did it during the Depression. It kept fraud at bay on small scale.

    Today - people barter their food allowances for fifty cents on the dollar for cigarettes and booze. I had a hapless soul offer me their card and pin identity a few months ago in exchange for cash. Yep. They needed cigarettes. But I have also seen individuals with subsidy buy out of season fruit and rib-eye steaks when I am stocking up on bananas and hamburger. Me, the tax-payer, is eating hamburger. The tax-vacuum, is eating better than my family. Sorry if I sound snarky, but so be it.

    Bottom line? Fraud abounds within the food subsidy program.

    *Coming next: the toilet paper dispenser that tells the consumer to only use three squares to clean up. The shopping cart idea is an absolute insult to those with even borderline intelligence. As a woman who will at times work twelve hours and then head straight to the grocery store I do not want a cart that nags me, or tells me I am wonderful. But then again, simple pleasures for simple minds. I would never accuse the current administration of any particular genius.

      It's all about "from cradle to grave." And I don't mean just for "the necessities."

      Tyrants of all ilks eventually insist that everything be regulated in one way or another -- including scolding for making what the tyrants decide are "wrong decisions."

      I wouldn't be surprised if toilet paper is regulated via the dispenser you describe. Already here: at the local public library which I frequent we have a paper towel dispenser that spits out the tiniest ever swatch of a paper towel. I'm sure that we're supposed to limit ourselves to that one swatch to dry our hands. It's not enough! So, we're all making the device spit out twice as much -- which is actually too much. The previous dispenser spit out that exact amount, but now the machines have been revised down. **sigh**

It's so unbelievably you'd think a man with good judgement would just keep quiet about one of his boss' most glaring defects. And I don't need talking carts either. They can start with stopping the subsidies for the junk they don't want people to buy. Oops. I think I just stepped on ADM's toes (et al).

    E. Warren is just a lightning rod to make Hillary look middle stream. Only a true believer will take this wacko fraud seriously. (hence all the 'pretty' coverage she's getting - her true believers at work).

    The Mosque issue is outrageous but sufficiently enlightening to be useful.

    But characterizing unchecked immigration full of waves of criminals and disease as "refugees" and using them as a shield for amnesty, paying millions for LAWYERS for them, hiding their illegal sequestration among us, and threatening an executive order amnesty in total affront of the law is criminal and BEYOND outrageous.

  23. Note the following from this recent blog post at Infidel Bloggers Alliance:

    No one believes a kid from Nicaragua or Guatemala has less right than kids in Somalia to avoid being pressed into HORROR, but no one believes we can be a haven for kids EVERYWHERE ON EARTH. We just CANNOT DO THAT, physically (look where these kids are being WAREHOUSED), or certainly (as our family net worth’s decline) economically.

    But all these things NO ONE WANTS is PRECISELY what is occurring.
    Obama, given his INABILITY to do anything but campaign...


    A good summation, IMO. Read it all HERE. Worth your time.

  24. "Right now the only realistic hope the democrats have of retaining the senate outright is if the R’s IMPEACH Obama"

    As perverse as this may sound, it's probably true. Anyway a 2/3 majority in the Senate is unobtainable so why even consider it?

    1. Jon,
      I've thought a lot about the impeachment option and the political consequences thereof.

      We know that, historically, of the two times that Presidents have been impeached and tried for impeachment, the conviction vote failed twice. Nixon, of course, resigned.

      Now consider the political consequences. It's a split on the matter of which political party won the next General Election.

      Would enough Dems in the Senate vote for conviction were Obama to be impeached by the House? Not likely, but I'm not sure that it's impossible that the Senate would vote solely according to party lines.

      And here's something else....Will the GOP hold the House if the House doesn't impeach Obama?

  25. I'm pretty sure there'd be enough folks so ticked off over the impeachment that the Dems might win in a landslide.
    Did you hear someone on FOX (can't remember who) who suggested Obama isn't REAGANESQUE enough? The commenter said "I heard someone say he wished Obama would be more NIXONESQUE and RESIGN!" cracked me up.

      No way that America will stand for the impeachment of the first African-American President, IMO. The race card seems to be ever in play -- without impunity.

    2. Always; Why do you think they ran him in the first place?...someone who has no experience, was proven to have lied during his first campaign, shady friends, family background a mess, wrote one Harvard Review piece and gets to be Editor? A big publisher publishes TWO BIOGRAPHIES by someone who's a nothing at a young age, are you KIDDING ME?
      no impunity. EVER. They're counting on it. I wish I knew who 'they' were.

    4. Z, 'they' include George Soros who handpicked Obama to take on Hillary. But he was funding him before that, and by 2006 was 'shepherding' some of his big backing while feelers were being floated for public reaction to a WH run. Tony Rezko was just a local sharpie that got in his oar in Illinois.

      Way more here than we'll know. But I think we can be certain that the same forces that greased his skids to the White House are the ones that Abraham Lincoln opposed so vehemently: the money coming out of the house of Rothschild and all those financier connections stemming therefrom. Soros has 'em, e.g.

      Someone recognized Obama was a useful option in his college days. He was worthless on the Law Review but someone wanted it on his resume. I'm sure they position many a horse to win, then start pouring on the steroids when the options narrow.

      Yes, BHO was groomed and promoted to get to where he sits today: in the Oval Office.

    6. Baysider; Soros, definitely; I've written about that extensively. But it isn't solely Soros, that is FOR SURE. And I agree; he was groomed years ago. And the publishing house was coerced to publish (nobody publishes autobiographies by nobodies, especially when they're still so young and nobody knows who they are..it was a set up for future election fodder) his books, and Harvard Law Review Editor? Ridiculous. Then the Nobel Peace Prize for NOTHING? (Any man with ANY dignity would have turned it down for that very reason..he cheapens everything he nears).

      Bilderburg, Trilateral, etc etc...it's a bunch of them; with politicians from both sides in those many secret groups.

      Yes, Obama has long had multiple "big boys" backers. Most Americans don't have a clue.

  26. Impeachment. The right thing to do is often the hardest thing to do. I say do it and let the chips fall where they may. Though there is no chance of it actually happening given the current senate.

      I'm sure that at least some people will stay home if Obama isn't impeached before the 2014 elections. I've heard rumblings to that effect.

  28. Impeachment would be fine, were there impeachable offenses. But unfortunately for the scandal zeolots there isn't and they know it.

    Obama is a superb campaigner and an inept executive and administrator. But being an inept executive does not constitute an impeachable offens and a majority of America and it's elected officials know this.

    Obama, the superb campaigner and inept executiveadministrator won reelection because his opponent was an inept campaigner but an effective executive executive/ administrator.

    1. It seems politics is more about appearances than substance these days. And the number unable to tell the difference is growing almost daily.

    2. RN,
      If the IRS scandal can be proven to link to the Oval Office, the grounds for impeachment will be crystal clear. I'm not convinced that Lois Lerner's emails cannot be retrieved.

      There is also the matter of the subpoenas being ignored by the White House.

  29. No argument.

    I just wonder how long it will be, and what it will take to convince those who believe he is guilty that he is not. If that turns out to be the reality of it. My guess? Nothing will ever convince some of them, no matter what the evidence may be.

    We'll see.
