The same Government that wants us to “Trust Them” with our health care can’t even manage dead people?
After the Democrats said “Trust us” and “You’ll just have to pass it to see what’s in it” with their Health Care Deform bill, despite our protests and polls showing a majority was against the measure, they passed it anyway.
One argument against the bill was “Look at what Government has done to Social Security! To Medicare! Want more now?”
They did. Much more.
Really, by now how could anyone be surprised if the “Most Transparently Arrogant President in Our Time”© would not be considering such a move, which apparently he is;
A group of Republican senators has written to top immigration officials in the Obama administration asking them to reveal whether large-scale plans are under way to provide a so-called non-legislative version of amnesty.
The lawmakers cite an 11-page draft document written by staff to the director of the Citizenship and Immigration Service that says they are reviewing several executive orders and other mechanisms that effectively would serve as a substitute for comprehensive immigration reforms.
An article by Washington Times describes a memo which reads;
“In the absence of comprehensive immigration reform, USCIS can extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing new guidance and regulations, exercising discretion with regard to parole-in-place, deferred action and the issuance of Notices to Appear,” the staffers wrote in the memo, which was obtained by Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican.
So is this just a trial balloon? If so, we need to pop it in a hurry.
An email message titled “Will you wish Barack a happy birthday with me?” arrived to email in-boxes across the country the other day, coming from “Michelle Obama”. I got one, personalized “To Erick” even.
Michelle wants the O-bots to all wish Barack a Happy Birthday…and send him lots and lots of money;
(CNSNews.com) – It seems like a nice gesture – an e-mail message from a loving wife, urging thousands of people to join her in wishing her husband a happy 49th birthday by signing an electronic birthday card.
But in Washington, D.C., nothing is that simple.
The wife, in this case, is first lady Michelle Obama, and the message is being sent by the Democratic Party to people on its list nationwide. And underlying the birthday wishes, the message is political: The electronic card to Barack Obama also is a Democratic Party fundraiser.
Then Michelle blasts off to Spain with 200 or so of her closest friends, ditching hubby Barack on his all-important birthday.
Michelle Obama will make an official visit with Spain’s King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia. I suppose that is to justify the use of tax-payer dollars for the vacation and maybe so the Obama’s can take any personal expenses off their taxes? Ha!
Mrs. Obama’s time in Spain will be closed to the press in its entirety. Including the ‘official’ visit with King Juan Carlos and Queen Sophia. I guess that means no photo-ops for the Spaniards.
All I can say is the Jolie-Pitts have nothing on the Obamas!
Yeah, ummmm, thanks?
