The Shameless Hackery of Harry Reid

Michael IL Wrote: Jan 29, 2015 11:30 AM
Senator Reid is emblematic of exactly why the framers of the Constitution drafted a governing document that provided for seperation of powers and a LIMITED Federal Government. They understood human nature and just what scoundrels men could be when presented with too much authority. As it goes, "Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Aaaron Burr was just one of those scoundrels who wished to exploit his position for personal gain. Hamilton called him out for it which ultimately cost him his life at Weehawken. Where the practice of dueling still in vogue today, Reid no doubt would have been called to task long ago for his chicanery.
"Other than engineers, economists and quarterbacks, no one acquires any marketable knowledge at college." Granted. A degree in psychology, Spanish literature or any studies, will assure most any college graduate a job as a barista at Starbucks.
The most significant threat to humanity today is Radical Islam and the pursuit by the Islamists of WMD's. Even at the height of the Cold War the greatest deterrent was mutual assured destruction with both the US and Russia fully aware of the consequences of the use of nuclear weapons. The world now faces this threat from Islamists for whom the promise of full retaliation poses no threat. Their hatred of Israel and the West compels the civilized world to make certain there is no further proliferation of nuclear arms especially in by the Mullahs in Iran.

Obama Targets Americans At The Pump

In its latest effort at curbing the production of destructive greenhouse gas emissions the Administration is instructing the EPA to focus attention on the cattle industry. World wide cows emit about two billion metric tons of CO2-equivalents per year. "According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) agriculture is responsible for 18% of the total release of greenhouse gases world-wide (this is more than the whole transportation sector)." The President is therefore proposing all cows be retrofit with flatulence arresting & recycling trove systems (FARTS). Cost estimates to retrofit the Nations 40 million cows are at $1.76 trillion which the President says is a small price to pay in the interest of halting climate change.
So after inciting riots and civil unrest across the Nation which ultimately resulted in the assassination of two police officers Eric Holder it appears will get off scot-free. Such reckless conduct should be rewarded with a lengthy jail term if justice where indeed blind.
If this were so troubling it would be possitively laughable. Its as though the "Gang that couldn't Shoot Straight" is running the Nation's Health Care system.
I just don't see Hillary winning 2016 or even winning the Democrat nomination. The Clintons have just too much baggage and even their own Party grows weary of them. Then again I would have bet my farm that Obama would have been a one term POTUS. One thing for certain is that every Republican candidate will be vilified by the MSM. Which is why all would be candidates maintain civility between themselves and remember the enemy of America is the Democrat Party.
IF the President persists in this defiant posture and he will, he is setting the stage for a 2016 Republican sweep. The next two years will be America's bitter pill to swallow before the next Administration can begin the arduous task of unwinding the destructive legislation the Democrats have saddled the Nation with.
After capturing Headlines across the globe in typical Friday news dump fashion NASA walks back the story saying well were only 38% certain. Can even that be believed? When it comes to numbers and data provided by the government all too frequently the data's massaged to fit the Administration's narrative. When it comes to the economy, "Happy days are here again." Only most Americans aren't feeling it in their pocketbook. When it comes to Global Warming, "The sky is falling" Only the data to support does not comport with the facts. Emanuel my have said "Never let a crisis go to waste, but now we have an Administration that manufactures crises to drive its agenda's.
The same old racist meme, "Too many old white men in power." Yada, yada, yada.
