Do ´the people´ get the
governments they deserve?

American Thinker, by Clifton Chadwick

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/8/2012 4:16:37 PM

So Obama has been re-elected. Did the American people get the government they deserve? (Snip) Chávez fits the mold. He tries to create favor with the people and also with Bolivia, Nicaragua, Cuba, and Ecuador. He is unscrupulous, and, while intellectually challenged, he has managed to mislead, deceive, and betray his people even as he holds them in his grip. He has ruined the state´s main source of revenue, the oil industry. He has alienated and pursued the more intelligent and resistant people of his country and done consistent damage to the economy.

Comments:
I saw the description of Hugo Chavez as "eerily" similar to 0bama. Did these two go to school together in some third world country, learning to hate the industrialist in their countries that could make their Nation´s truly "hope and change" for their people?

Yes! Complacency allowed the leftists to infiltrate and supplant our educational system with their ilk to indoctrinate our children. They also are subverting our entire governmental system.

Was just listening to Bootz on the radio,talking about a story about some welfare hog compliaining about not getting heatng assistance. In the video you can see she has a 50 inch TV,Exbox and all the other luxuries that normal people have to work for. She was also obese. This is Obama´s America and exemplifies why the country is going down the toilet.
We have some states attacking unions but until someone has the guts to crackdown on these welfare criminals, we´ll never see any sense of normalcy come back.
There has to be some kind of movement to deprive the government of having the money to feed the welfare hog,plantation residents.

Conservatism will be gone with us baby boomers. Gen X, Y, and Z, illegal immigrants, Democrats and their special interest, greens and LGBTs, all of them will have the government they voted for and therefore deserve. I´m glad I won´t be around for it, but I weep for our children. It is too late for them now.

I don´t know how to address that question. There is no "the people".

Each person will only have an opinion about what his government is doing and proposing to do. He does not think collectively.

It is government that creates subsets of people based on race, sex, sexual behavior, religion, wealth, and other criteria. The reasons may be as simple as divide-and-rule or based upon dogma or even the desire to atone for past injuries.

Governments treat the subsets differently and favor some and punish others. The favored groups will tend to approve, the not favored will complain.

We might use Affirmative Action as an example of mild favoritism to correct a wrong.

At the opposite extreme would be genocide such as Hitler planned for Jews.

And somewhere in between might be ethnic cleansing where people are forced from their lands and become refugees.

I didn´t vote for any of them but I will be going down the rat hole to hell with them because the drag will be so great. I find it disconcerting that the only thing obama has asked these people to do for themselves and America is sign up for more "gov´t freebies". He has asked the workers to be taxed more so more can be given away to his voters. He has asked nothing of the leeches. Unmarried women with children is the main reason for poverty. While he insists that women get "free" birth control he isn´t telling women to take the pills. We are sunk.

The gimme crowd voted for Obama. In one short month he will give them new taxes to implement Obamacare, higher tax rates, reduced unemployment benefits, cuts to military and entitlements and an IRS that knows everything about their health. That was passed more than a year ago, signed by President Obama and takes effect unless Congress and the President can agree on a change. IMHO, they should let it happen.

What idiot question is this? Venezuelans voted for Chavez, again. So yes, they deserve every bit of him. Here we lost an opportunity to right a sinking ship because we ran a poor campaign with no fire to name one reason. If anyone can figure out a way of separating 50% of the people from the other so they can have their own country, I want to know. Don´t think Texas can fit 80 plus millions.

Sad to day, I agree with most of what #3 said.

I do have a little hope, but that hope rests on "our" 50% of the country --i.e. the 50% who still believe in a free opportunity society-- taking their children out of the Leftist indoctrination factories called public schools.

Parents and grandparents, take your children out of the public schools. And refuse to send them to Leftist colleges or universities. There ARE alternatives.

The Media lies to us.

As long as that continues, Progressives will continue to distort reality and use blame to explain their failed policies.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection
against ignition lawsuits

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

What Your Sleeping Position
Says About Your Relationship

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Peshawar , Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban said Wednesday that they were ending a six-week-old ceasefire but would continue peace talks with the Pakistani government.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years
New York Times, by Julia Preston    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/16/2014 5:04:45 PM     Post Reply
New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
