DACA, Immigration, Border Security and Congress - 21st Century American Kabuki

Here's a novel idea...
We all realize that if Congress does their job (creating legislation), and it becomes law, it may at some point face Constitutional challenges in court. Some members of Congress are lawyers and perhaps some may be "Constitutional" scholars, that being said, we all know much of the language in Congressional legislation is actually written and guided by third parties and Capitol Hill lobbyists.

Why not have the Supreme Court try their hand at creating a fair, comprehensive and Constitutional, immigration plan. After all, they are the ones who pass Constitutional judgement relative to judicial challenges to law. One might agree, whatever the Supreme Court Judges create, probably won't face many if any challenges later on. While DACA is in the forefront of importance because of a closing time window, immigration is so much more than DACA. Border security is important enough to be a separate issue. It shouldn't be a pawn in some Congressional negotiation, AKA Kabuki dance, on how to spend tax payer money. There is no necessity in compromise or negotiation relative to immigration and border security. It's not an either or issue. They are distinct and separate issues conjoined at the hip.

My suggestion would be to get DACA done and passed on a clean, straight forward and bipartisan bill, since window of opportunity is closing fast. Then notify all relative agencies of the DACA fix. Then, put the other issues in a hat and draw the next issue to tackle, then the next, then the next. Hey if drawing names out of film canisters in a hat passes for democracy in Virginia, then it's good enough for Congress. I'm sure they will find that taken separately, each bill will be stronger and probably enjoy stronger bipartisan participation and support. Congress, earn your money...you lazy good for nothing bums...

What's on your mind Christmas 2017

As our broken and disgraced Congress rushes home for the holidays, pushing past journalists to "get out of Dodge" with hopes it will all go away and no one noticed how disgustingly horrible they've been, or the time bomb they just lit the fuse to in the form of tax relief for the rich paid for by the poor, middle class, and debt they piled on our great grand children's children. We notice, and it won't all just go away. We face a crisis of nation in which our very democracy is in peril and the answer is staring us right in the face. But only if the right question is asked.

If substantial and corroborated evidence exists proving a foreign government covertly influenced and/or manipulated the outcome of our elections, shouldn't the elections, for all intents and purposes, be declared null and void, regardless of the outcome? If the answer is yes, the question then becomes by whom and by what mechanism is this to be accomplished? The FBI? The DOJ? NSA? Congress? The Constitution has no remedy to declare elections null and void. It is for this reason that the extra-constitutional remedy we come up with, must be included in an amendment to the Constitution.

Impeachment is the constitutional remedy to remove an individual or individual from office for cause. What we require however, is for the entire election and process to be declared null and void. Additionally, we require a halting and reversal of anything done by the new administration to include, by not limited to: Executive Orders, Cabinet appointments, judicial nominees and seating, and any laws or acts enacted by Congress signed by the administration in question. And, any personnel changes to made to any government office or agency. Additionally, any federal laws enacted, or state laws enacted to comply with federal law subsequent to the election must be struck.

This is a crisis of nation and of such perilous magnitude that it rivals our war of independence from Great Britain. However instead of starting over, it will be a reset to default, which no longer exists. Do we recall to duty the entire last administration and line of succession?  The honor, integrity, and the sovereignty of our government and democratic system of election is at stake. People, this is not a "but...but..." moment here! What I'm talking about on Christmas Day 2017 is not a war in some foreign land. I'm talking about subversion right here in America and it's been going on right in front of our noses. The lack of normalcy and attempts to rationalize the irrational by the government and main stream media has clouded minds and diluted the words and thoughts of the people. How sad is that? Don't blink, your country may not be here if you do....Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone...

Can we all agree on just a few things?

OK now, please hear me out. Can we all agree that America has used a lot of petrol fuel since Ford put his first car on the road? Can we also agree that we've been paying taxes on that fuel and those taxes, were to go to maintenance and new construction of our roads, highways and bridges?

I say again, we've been paying taxes on gas and diesel fuel since Henry Ford drove his first car off the assembly line, and the tax money that was collected from the sale of fuel was supposed to go towards maintenance and new construction of roads, highways and bridges. If those things are true, why then is our infrastructure a crumbling and dangerously deficient, catastrophic event waiting to happen? Our government, our elected officials, have been misappropriating tax dollars for over a century with no real accountability. They are not now, nor have they been, doing the will of the people.

Then they have the nerve to bitch about deficits when the majority of the deficit originated from providing tax breaks to the wealthy. Meanwhile, government can't afford their obligation to make payments to Americans who've been paying into the system for decades and when they need it most, the government slash their payments to cover up the fact they can't stop their embezzlement to fund special interest projects supported by the lobbyists of their campaign donors.

To add insult to injury, they've also managed to embezzled TRILLIONS upon TRILLIONS of dollars from the Social Security trust fund, a government created program in which people have been paying a portion of their salaries and wages into for decades. An embezzlement of the people's money, all to pay for more special interest pork and tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations, whose lobbyists have been so nice to them over the years. An accounting entry to divert income collected from taxes and other sources, to pay for things that would otherwise not get funded. Pure graft.

Don't you think it's time to put an end to this overstuffed, unaccountable, gluttonous pig of a government's appetite for self enrichment, ignoring constituents and spending other peoples money?

Raul Revere rode by screaming stuff last night...What was he screaming?...I don't know, I went back to sleep...

Deceit entangles the unwitting pawn with choices that appear inconsequential. They take from you in your best interests. But it's in their best interests not yours. They pollute minds with lies and distortion. A misinformation campaign of purposeful chaos and stress to get you going in too many directions in order to conceal the corruption of their kleptocracy. The greatest country on earth is on life support and our elected officials are playing golf, tweeting, molesting children and knowingly allowing the poor and middle class to suffer yet again from trickle down economic tax breaks to millionaires, that have never worked, and you still expect us to believe it's in our best interests?

I am loath to say we're at a tipping point, when truth will finally unite the common man into choosing between complicit blindness, or rebellion against the unjust and the long corrupted. When the last straw has been placed and the camel's back is broken, I say woe to the rulers, the elitists and "untouchables". The unmasked greed mongers who peddle death in the name of God and country. The elected who fill their coffers with lobby money, choosing wealth over morality, humanity and the best interests of the people who elected them. Woe to them, for the Second Coming and the Day of Reckoning won't amount to a pimple on a pedophile's ass when they finally storm the gates for them.
...just sayin'...

When "facts of life" Contradict Morality.

When the "facts of life" contradict morality, the real questions that should be asked are; who's doing the teaching and what the hell are they teaching? No one is born immoral, it's an acquired trait. The resulting effect is an emotionally fractured society of the morally deviant, sexual misfits, and those who never quite out grew puberty.

We, as a are society, have allowed this conduct to proliferate for generations. From the "girls night out" and "locker room" conversations that either disgust or entertain, to actual unacceptable misconduct by commoner and celebrity alike, that apparently only now shocks our morality. The deviant escapades of the empowered maladjusted, seems to have been the best kept secret of generations. But silence continues to remain the best kept secret of the abused, the oppressed and the victimized. Each of us personally, mother, daughter, father, son, sister and brother, each of us must eventually decide whether we accept turpitude and hypocrisy to be the moral standards of the society we are all a part of.

...the folly of indifference to impropriety.

History not only tells us where we've been, it may also predict where we're going. The last time we as a country were this politically divided, where middle ground ceased to exist because the issues were polar opposites, there was a civil war. We would do well to learn the lessons history teaches because America can ill afford the consequences of ignoring our past or the folly of indifference to impropriety.
