Public Unions are Public Enemy No. 1

With union membership such a small percentage of workers these days it must be impossible for most people to understand the insidious nature of unions. Having spent a career in the airline industry I was well exposed to the inexplicable effect that unions have on the mindset of those who fall into their scam. Intelligent, reasonable people become like robots marching to the commands of the collective. The disappearance of clear logic is remarkable and the militaristic antagonism directed at anyone who does not carry the union banner is scary.
The irony and the tragedy of the current situation is the fact that so many of our "leaders" both in the corporate and political world have admitted there use of drugs. The current President has written about his felonious use of drugs. The primary difference between all of those who have "experimented" with illegal drugs and become successful and those who have had a criminal arrest or incarceration ruin their lives is a simple one - they got caught.
Sorry, it is not even a close call. Familiarize yourself with Adobe Illustrator and Occam's Razor.
I was not interested in the question as to Obama's birthplace until I downloaded his Birth Certificate from The WhiteHouse.Org site. As a graphics professional with over 20 years of experience in scanning and document creation/manipulation I can say with 100% certainty that the document is a forgery and a very poor one at that. So poorly done in fact that it had to be intentional. The only question remaining is why?

Illegal Immigrants, Not So Illegal

That is certainly insightful. I guess in your small world of the simple it is much easier to pin the tail on a villain than it is to actually be capable of thought and reason. In that way you are of a similar mind with the current president.

Our Idiot Vice President

Ouch, the old reliable Founders/slavery strawman argument. You can diminish virtually all of the accomplishments of humankind with such twisted logic. Obviously Leonardo was a bumbling idiot and an environmental terrorist because he used some lead-based paints.
But Texas does fund it's school system with confiscatory property taxes and it has demographics that will insure it to be a "blue" state in the foreseeable future. The insidious and infectious nature of the entitlement mentality knows no boundary or borders. Neither countries or states are immune to it.

There Ought Not to Be a Law

You miss the point entirely. If someone on drugs, illegal or prescription, or alcohol affects the lives of anyone else THEN society has a role. Laws that are perceived to be unjust to the majority of the people (including the current president) weaken the respect of all laws. As has been so often shown there is no limit to what some might be necessary for the benefit of society. Limiting the size of soft drinks is a suitable example might be a good idea for individual choice but it is a silly intrusion for government.

There is no area of governing that is more mis-guided than laws against personal behavior such as the use of drugs. All too often the difference between a productive life and one as a criminal is a simple matter of whether or not a person got caught doing something the vast majority has done. We currently have a President who has openly admitted to the felonious use of drugs, yet he has not used his position to condemn a system under which hundreds of thousands of his fellow citizens who have never done anything worse than him are forced to live their lives with arrest and/or prison records while he ascended to the highest office in the world. Laws that are selectively enforced are a moral issue more destructive than the act itself.

That was intentional. The most destructive people are those who believe in their hearts that they are right and need to inflict those beliefs onto others.

There is an undeniable urge on the part of a significant number of human's who aspire to imparting their opinions on others. The vast majority of people are too busy living their own lives to pay much attention to what those people do. One needs no better example as to how invasive and destructive such people are than living in a home that is part of a homeowners organization in which you will find the closest and most obvious examples of how overbearing blow-hearts can take minute amounts of power and use it in illogical and subversive ways. Projecting such abuse of power to a state or federal level with the incredible amount of money and control that is available explains everything about what type of people end up dictating our lives.
