Obama's Bullshit Soils the 4th of July

After hearing Obama cry for "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" as he attempts to gain a large portion of the 11-15 million illegals that are potential votes for his re-election in 2012, this coming weekend became even more important.  Before we address the coming holiday let's not let Obama's bullshit smother the simple facts of illegal immigration.  Bottom line, in his most annoying and narcissistic performance yet, Obama said that our immigration laws are not enforceable, and therefore like everything else, we need new legislation written by his socialist cut throats.  The simple truth is there are at least three existing laws Obama refuses to enforce which should be the basis for his impeachment.  Laws the Congress and Courts should force Obama to execute follow:

1.  Secure the borders.
2.  Enforce laws prohibiting employers from hiring illegals.
3.  Enforce laws prohibiting visitors from illegally staying beyond their visas dates.

Issues like this demonstrate the importance of this coming Sunday.

On July 4th, we will explode our fireworks and hold our annual picnics to celebrate Independence Day marking the day in 1776 that the Continental Congress formally adopted the Declaration of Independence.  For most of our lives we have been able to focus only on the fun aspects of this holiday with little thought that our celebrated Independence was in jeopardy in any way.  Not so in 2010.  Why?  First let's look at this thing called a Declaration.

The Declaration of Independence was intended to be an official statement explaining why the 13 American colonies had declared their independence from Great Britain. In the years following its passage, however, this statement of principles about the rights of man grew to mean much more.  In fact this document became a basis for our Constitution and the American way of life.

America was founded on a set of clearly expressed "self-evident" truths.  It is these "truths" that have made our Nation different from any other in this World.  There are three powerful phrases in this document:

"...all men are created equal"

Yet, we clearly are not all equal.  We have different skills, desires, ambitions, and attributes.  We go our different ways in life.  The words of the founders capture the fact that we are to all treat each other as equals.  We are "created equal" in the sense that all men (and, we now recognize, all women) have the same natural rights, granted to them by God. We are all the same under the law.  Why are we the same?  Who says so?

"...endowed by their Creator"

The core contention of the Declaration of Independence and the principle of natural rights upon which America was founded is that there is a higher moral order upon which the laws of man must be based, those being the will of God. In forming America, our founders recognized and declared that man's rights come from God.  Man does not depend on government to grant him rights through a bureaucratic process based on what is popular at that time, but instead to secure those rights that have been granted to him by God.

In other words, power comes from God, to you, which is then loaned to government. Thus, the Declaration states, "That to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."  And for what purpose do we have rights?

"...the pursuit of happiness"

To the founders the term "happiness" meant something close to "wisdom and virtue." It did not mean "do as you please", "take what you want", or "nurse at the breast of someone else" as the term is too often confused to mean today.

It is also essential to note that the Declaration does not say that we have a right to have happiness provided to us. It says we have the right to pursue happiness.  It certainly doesn't say the government should redistribute happiness.  Clearly, it does not say everyone has the right to be happy, but to pursue happiness.

The Founding Fathers understood that government could not give people happiness, that it was instead up to government to create an environment where the people could best work to achieve their dreams. It is a fact that the harder one works for that success, the greater happiness one derives from it.  The freedom to pursue your dreams of success has made this the greatest country in the history.

This year we can not brainlessly celebrate our holiday. Why?  The American commitment to Independence and Freedom as  described here is under attack by the Secular Socialist Elite who want to divorce God and our Natural Rights from our lives.  In its place they want to create a Big Government with Little Citizens in which the Elite determine what rights we Little People possess.  They use terms like Social Justice.  This means they will define Equal Results, not Equal Rights, in their efforts to redistribute wealth and even happiness, all for the purpose of gaining votes and support for the Ruling Elite.  It is amazing that these Elites have made the progress that they have when Socialism has failed and is failing every place it has tried.

Even so, the War against Secular Socialism that we face today may be far more difficult and require even more commitment and persistence than was needed against those Brits that the Colonists faced in the 1770's.  Just maybe we should all attend the next Tea Party held in our communities.  I take my hat off to these "Constitutionalists".

But then I could write a book about what I don't know,

You Heard It Here: The Next Big Scam

Folks like Billy Roy and Butch have a good nose for smelling "low life" type people before it is obvious to the general population that something bad is happening.  Maybe it is because famous criminals, cheaters, thieves, and even murderers have been known to roam Hill County and surrounding areas.  People like John Wesley Hardin from Bonham, a famous gunfighter who claimed to have killed 41 men including the City Marshal, L. J. Hoffman of neighboring Waco, Texas.  Others included Clyde Barrow the male member of the Bonnie and Clyde outlaw gang.  Clyde came from the neighboring Ellis County and was rumored to have had relatives in Hubbard where he visited frequently between robbing big banks and little stores and killing law enforcement officers.  By the way, the locals say it is a known fact that Bonnie smoked unfiltered Camel cigarettes and not cigars contrary to press reports.

This writer would rather not mention more recent characters of lesser offenses who made a good living around Hubbard City stealing railroad cross ties, railroad iron bridges and things of this nature.  Without going any further and risking losing friends, let's just say folks like Billy Roy and Butch can sniff fowl play.  So with this as the background I posed the question to the cafe folks when I visited Hubbard this past week end celebrating with my fellow classmates, several of which were paroled to attend the event, our 50th High School Graduation Anniversary.  (As a side note, our class is slowing down as just one alleged 'pinching' was reported in the entire 6 hour visitation.)  Back to the question which was, "What big scams do you see on the horizon what with Obama being a Communist and everything?"

Well Butch being the historian and keeper of facts, figures, and mostly free advice kicked it off, "To really understand what's coming you have to really understand where we have been.  In 1992 Arkansas' then current version of Bonnie and Clyde, under the names of Hillary and Bill, ran for the Presidency of these United States with very little chance of succeeding in a fair and open election.  And then out of the blue came a strange Dallas rich guy named Ross (to be confused and compared to the Bonnie and Clyde driver named Moss) who ran on a third party ticket. The story was that Ross Perot was so worried about the country that he paid his own expenses to run an expensive campaign that pulled enough votes from the Republicans for the Arkansas bandits to get to the White House.  Now this is the same Ross Perot that is so tight that when he currently eats at his favorite BBQ joint in Dallas that he gets a child's plate to save money.  What motivated Ross, we are not sure, but there is something strange in the wood pile somewhere."

Billy Roy couldn't resist picking this story up, "Butch as I recall Perot ran a second time in 1996 using government funding this time to siphon off Republican votes to re-elect the Clintons.  Now if he didn't know he was electing them the first time, he sure as hell knew he was in '96.  Why would a conservative libertarian-type business man do this twice?"

"As always BM, you drove the nail with one mighty stroke," responded Butch who is somewhat subject to exaggeration and being a big fan and semi-political advisor to Billy Roy.  "Take us home, BM."

"Will do, Butch.  So where are we now?  Obama, a known commie, is shifting control of the country from the people and private sector to the governing elite at a dizzying pace.  Folks are catching on because folks may be slow but they are not completely stupid, and the Libs know with current trends the days of  Obama and Democratic majorities are numbered.  So we now see the first signs of the BIG SCAM.  Bill Clinton is beginning to openly criticize Obama, and secondly, he is beginning to pick so called 'moderate' dems to run against Obama's libs like in Colorado.  Meanwhile Bonnie, oops I mean Hillary, is beginning to make statements about things much broader (or should we say more Presidential) than her do 'nothing job' as Secretary of State (announcing that the Justice dept is suing Arizona and rich people round the world should pay more taxes).  This is all orchestrated with the media running polls saying the American people have more confidence in Hillary than both Obama and likely Republican candidates."

Butch allowed BM  to catch his breath saving himself for his singing performances this week end, "So it is clear to anyone but a semi-casual observer that the plan is to give the appearance of throwing Obama overboard (they will probably let him run the UN) and bring Clyde, sorry I mean Bill, back into the White House to 'balance the budget like he did before' and Hillary to come in as President to continue to earn the respect we are gaining around the World by retreating from any confrontation and surrendering our leadership both economically and militarily.  As any intelligent person knows there is not a dimes worth of difference between Hillary and Obama's Socialist beliefs.  A recent poll showed the only income group that still supports Obama with a majority are those who make under $20,000, or in other words, those who don't pay taxes.  So if the elites can make that group larger with stuff like amnesty, and if the Clinton's can one more time convince voters they are moderate, they can get another 4 to 8 years to create government dependencies with voters who want to overthrow the American system by redistributing wealth."

Well never did I expect my scam question to reach an answer of these heights, but with the Folks at the Hubbard City Cafe you just never know, do you?

By now the only people still at the Cafe were BM and Butch because the rest of the folks came to talk about Al Gore.  Well maybe next time.

As for me, I could write a book about what I don't know.

Bonus Blog: Revealing Obama's Quiz Along With Billy Roy's Calendar

Billy Roy Mitchum, local country singer/philosopher/follower of big and many little events, received the following quiz that was taken by the leaders of the G-20 countries meeting in Canada this weekend to discuss major world events.  BM was invited to the event in his informal capacity as Chairman of the Hubbard City Cafe but was unable to attend since he was performing at the Cowboy Club in Mexia this past weekend. 

In BM's absence, Obama was the only attendee from the US.  Things turned real bad when the current US leader was informed that teleprompters were not allowed.  It seems Obama answered all questions with a huge B and arrogantly stormed from the room prompting attendees to hold a raging debate over the clinical possibility of whether the current US leader could possibly be a complete imbecile while suffering from a huge dose of arrogance.  Obama was the only attendee who answered every question wrong.  Even the Chinese leader got three answers right even though he neither could read nor understand the English written quiz.

The quiz (remember Obama selected "b" on every question):

1.  When your country is spending more money than it is receiving in revenue by several $Trillion each year creating an unsustainable national deficit, your government should:
         a)  Reduce your spending to fall in line with revenues
         b)  Increase your spending and call it stimulus while declaring it the short term thing to do

2.  If citizens of your country can not afford to own a home, they should:
        a)  Not buy a home
        b)  Go ahead with a home purchase and rely on someone called Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac

3.  When none of your civilian defense team support you and your Generals war strategy, you should:
       a)  Change your war strategy, gain their agreement, or ask them to leave
       b)  Fire your General for questioning how engaged you are in the war

4)  If your current government run health care systems (medicaid and medicare) are bankrupt, you should:
      a)  Take measures to make the system responsive to free market principles
      b)  Add 12 million new people to the system

5)  If 15 million people have illegally entered your country, you should:
      a)  Enforce the borders immediately while taking all measures to deport the illegals
      b)  Sue any state or organization that tries to enforce existing immigration laws

Now by popular demand the following is Billy Roy's performance schedule:

July 2          Fairfield VFW                                                                  8:00 PM
July 3          Downtown Dawson                                                          8:00 PM
July 17        Wild Bill's Steak House, Hubbard                                     8:00 PM
Aug 20        Rosenthal Dance, Rosenthal                                              8:30 PM
Aug 21        Old Town, Hubbard                                                         9:00 PM
Sept 4         West Fest, Downtown West                                             8:30 AM
Sept 25       Cowboy Club, Mexia                                                       9:00 PM

Also, BM appears every second Saturday of each month at Martin's Music Hall in downtown Corsicana on the Big C Jamboree at 7:00 PM.

This writer will reimburse any attendees cover charge that does not thoroughly enjoy any of these gigs.

But then I could write a book about the things I don't know,
