Andy McCarthy's Faithless Execution

Check out this link to a video of Andy McCarthy deftly discussing these issues:
At a minimum, we should enact the "Stossel Rule." For every new law passed, you have to repeal 2
you've got elitist, power crazy crooks on one side of the aisle & Marxist, elitist power crazy crooks on the other. That's why We The People have to fight these B@stards from trying to control our lives. Run the Army, Police & Fire Dept. Keep our roads plowed & pick up the garbage. There's enough money there for these corrupt POS's to skim in legitimate governmental functions. After that, leave us the hell alone.

Happy Father's Day

I eschew all Hallmark Holidays - those made up days so that Hallmark can sell greeting cards. I've been lucky enough in life to have been blessed by 2 amazingly wonderful kids who make me proud every day. They don't need Hallmark to tell them to pick up a phone once in a while & let me know what's going on in their lives. Every day is Fathers Day. And Mother's Day. And Kids Day
Unless you're 100% native American, every one of us comes from enterprising immigrant stock. Immigrants built this country & we need more - LEGAL - ones who are willing to work hard & sacrifice if we're ever to save it from the lazy, me first, nation we've become. So I'll agree with immigration reform with 4 conditions: 1) Secure the border to keep criminals & terrorists out - this is an issue of national security. 2) No Welfare, Food Stamps, Housing Assistance, etc. to non-U.S. citizens. This is an issue of Fiscal Security. We need immigrants willing to work hard for a better life & not people who come here for freebies. 3) No jumping in front of people trying to emigrate to the U.S. legally. This is a moral imperative. How can you justify it if illegals benefit from their lawless action by cutting ahead of the many worthy immigrants who go through serious legal & financial burdens to obey our laws & come here the right way? Maybe legal work status, but no citizenship until they go through the required process. 4) Finally, guarantee me that you've got an administration that cannot pick & choose to enforce those parts of the law with which they agree & which to ignore. Guarantee all that & I'm 100% with you. Lets overhaul our immigration system so we know who's here, keep criminals, terrorists & freeloaders out, allow in more hard working, self-sacrificing people looking for the American Dream, make those already here illegally start paying taxes & get on the back of the line for the citizenship track & figure out how to force the Executive branch to enforce the entire law.

My son at M.I.T. has a friend on the team of geniuses from Google, etc., brought in to fix who told him that when they arrived to the website "war room", they found 2 people supposedly minding the store. One was fast asleep & the other watching a football game. The guy told them, "you do know that the website is down, right?" - they had no idea and weren't interested. Regardless of whether you believe in Socialist medicine, etc., the lesson here is that incompetent, uncaring bureaucrats aren't capable of running anything. Over 60% of government Info Technology projects fail and for good reasons - it's someone else's money & nobody's ever held accountable!
I agree. New Cong Pay formula: $10k X (each pct of their party's approval - each pct opposing party's disapproval). Those throughout Congress who serve only their party will earn nothing & only those who do the right thing by most of the people will be well paid. I'd be glad to pay someone who got 100% support from both parties $1M/year & the vast majority of the rest close to nothing. We need a way to make it in the dirt-bag politicians' best interests to serve the people, not their party masters & special interests.

The reason we have omnipresent government is that we elect people who think their job is to legislate instead of representing the interests of their constituents. This makes them appear to be doing something to the masses. I go for the Stossel Rule: Pass all the laws you want - but for every one you pass, you have to repeal 2.
