More random thoughts: 1. Are the illegal immigrants being registered to vote? 2. Are they being given purple SEIU shirts and/or being connected with immigrant rights groups? If so, under what authority? 3. Has child protective services been called to investigate any potential child abuse? 4. What is being done with the children who show up without a guardian? 5. At what point will these people, being housed on military bases, be deemed hostages and Obama the hostage taker? Or do I have it backwards. We're the hostages and since we didn't give Obama what he wanted, he's allowing (and encouraging) the invasion. 6. Can we finally impeach this Obama? If not, what would it actually take?
Some random thoughts: 1. Can't someone get a court order to stop the President from doing this? 2. Why are they using planes? Wouldn't trains reduce the CO2 impact? 3. Since they are using military bases, is the VA providing the medical care? If so, do they go to the front of the line or do they get in line behind the veterans? 4. Are the illegal immigrants being issued identification or other official documents? 5. Are they being finger printed, getting a facial recognition scan, DNA, etc. so they can be correctly identified in the future? 6. Is the CDC involved with quarentining everyone who could be a potential carrier for these highly contagious and deadly infectious diseases? If not, why not? We don't want TB hitting the general population in a large way. 7. How in good concience can they release illegal immigrants into the general population if they have no where to live, are unable to legally be employeed, and have no means to sustain themselves? Aren't they just worsening the 'homeless' problem? 8. Why does this administration hate people so much?
Most of those organizations are financed by wealthy individuals. They are mostly just a sheepskin. Unions are the exception, except they don't really represent the voice of their members when it comes to politics. They are into self perpetuation and growth which in the case of public employee unions aligns nicely to the goals of the bureacracy and the politicians.
I assume that I am not speaking to criminals here on TownHall. So amassed wealth, and therefore influence, will have to be earned and not stolen. If this were a progressive website, then perhaps the stealing path would get more traction. Being a conservative website, I expect everyone to be more than happy to earn it.
Cathy, Peel back one more layer off that onion... The rich and powerful determine who gets on the ballot. The voters then get to decide which one they dislike the least. Either way, one of the 2 pre-determined people gets elected. We call this democracy. We're all just stooges. If you want real influence, stop earning wages. Become part of the owner class. Invent, build, sell, invest. Own the product of your labor. Amass real wealth. Only then can you become important enough to be included in the game.
Ann, Typically when I read your pieces, I sense a tone of mild disqust accompanied by some self satisfaction that you know you are making a great point and likely persuading people. This time, I'm sure you are angry and you'd like to take the left's words and shove them elbow deep down their collective throats. I hope I'm right. I hope your future articles continue with this tone, because I like it. It is about time someone did this to them. Thank you Ann.

Ken, thanks for the article.
What we will never know is how many jobs in the private sector he prevented by borrowing money from the private sector in order to provide funding from government for his 'created' jobs. Obama sacrificed the unseen so that he could claim credit for the seen. Read quotes 21 and 22 again and again until you understand.

I think the scarier outcome of the decision is if government decides to "tax" you based on your BMI. How about an additional 1% income tax surcharge for each point your BMI is above 25. Report to your local government IRS/Healthcare office for your official quarterly BMI assessment. Oh yeah, and bring your checkbook. But don't worry, the courts have already said that you can't deny someone welfare due to illegal drug use, alcohol, or smoking. So, be skinney, high, and poor and everything is free....

I have a great amount of respect for Neal, but I have to disagree with his 'unlimited ability to tax' arguement. It a The Federal Government has been doing this for years, only they've been doing in a reverse way. Here's what I mean. Today, we pay an income tax. Then government says that if you perform a certain activity (pay a mortgage, install energy efficient appliances or windows, etc), then you can deduct that from your income for tax purposes and recieve a refund. It's the same thing, it is just applied in the opposite way... Health Insurance... pay $x income tax No Health Insurance... pay $x income tax + $2500 Income, with no mortgage.... pay $y Income, with mortgage... pay $y - (marginal rate x interest expense)
