Just Moseying Around in BHO Land

Last week when I went to peruse the shelves at Barnes & Noble and used my educator card for a purchase, I was asked to show a photo ID. The next day, when I went for a planned medical procedure, I was required to display a photo ID. And finally, when I cashed a check at the local A&P, the cashier requested to see some identification. (snip) Late at night, I ponder why thousands of illegals are coming through the southern border and disappearing into the country, and I, a citizen of this country, need to prove that I am

At least we know these criminal aliens will not be able to cash a check at the A&P or use their educator card at B&N.

Yesterday I stopped in Wal-Mart to pick up some Suda-Fed for my wife. I asked in the aisle and was referred to the Pharmacy window. The clerk informed me that I needed a photo ID to purchase it. When I mentioned it was for my wife she rolled her eyes and said "I did not hear that".

WE have gone nuts.

will someone explain why a person who most think should register to vote is said to be such a hardship for some. To register to vote, one talks to a real person, knows exactly how much is required to process the request and leaves with a document that is sound, has a record of application, is paid for, and is accepted everywhere, especially at the voting booth.

Now explain why a person must register for Obama Health Care, (required!) who does not always have access to a computer, or when phoning in to a service cannot be quoted the actual amount, isn´t really sure he/she is registered, cannot count on the insurance coming through after a procedure is done and the rules/regulations change daily depending on Obama´s using his pen or phone.

The laws of this country are being abused right and left and confusion and frustration is rampant. Who knew such an intelligent, college graduate from a prestigious college could be such a lousy organizer. Who Knew!

#4/5 - Those rules only apply to the law abiding. People demand "something be done", politicians and bureaucrats take it from there. It´s better when one can attach a child´s name and a sad story to the new law...Eileen´s Law regulating scrap metal transactions to prevent the spread of lockjaw among America´s children, proposed and lobbied by Mothers Against Lockjaw...no child should ever suffer from this insidious killer.

Every good cause becomes a racket...and often a tyrant.

How about the confirmed reports that TSA is allowing unidentified illegal aliens to fly aboard commercial aircraft. All they have to show is the permission slip (permiso) issued to them by the border patrol under the provisions of Obama´s catch and release program. If those illegal aliens, when caught, have no credible identification on their person, the border patrol must take for face value any name, date of birth, and nationality that the individual gives them and put that information on the permission slip. Remember illegal aliens come from all over the world. If you know the answer to 2 plus 2 you should be able to figure out that a lot of the identifying data given by illegal aliens is bogus and who those illegal aliens really are is anyone´s guess. Obama could care less as he knows that the vast majority of illegal aliens who eventually attain US voting rights become Democrat voters. Just another instance of the Obama crew elevating politics over national security.

As a Christian, I cannot take the law into my own hands, retaliate or even defend myself (although our nation allows it). I am to depend on the State to protect me, which has the authority AND responsibility to do so, according to Scripture. But our nation is failing miserably. Our leaders have other agendas that have nothing to do with protecting Americans.
As I see more and more immoral legislation pass, and a president that picks and chooses what laws he will enforce and what he won´t, I am reminded that I live in a foreign land that does not care about Christians, their morals or their God. Our nation that once worshiped God and based it´s laws on His moral standards has abandoned Him. We all love their rights guaranteed to us by God but the majority don´t want anything else of His. We can´t have it both ways and America is proving it every day.
Benjamin Franklin said that only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. Virtue does not exist in the lives of most Americans and it is on full display by the leaders we elect.
I had life pretty comfortable for many years, but I´m afraid that our lives of comfort are coming to an end... and we are the reason; we have elected officials that share our values... values that are in the tank.

There once was another land which God chose as his own. The people worshiped him and followed his ways for awhile but eventually they turned from him and adopted the pagan ways of their neighbors. Eventually God turned his back on them and they were overrun by their pagan neighbors.

I was speaking to a local teacher a few days ago. She told me that the children being dumped in our schools not only don´t know English but most can´t even read or write Spanish. Completely illiterate. How do you teach a teenager how to read and write when all they speak is a form of pidgin Spanish?

#2, not only do you need to show ID, but your purchase is registered. My CVS swipes your license through a reader, and your register tape tells you how much of your allotted amount is left for your purchase.

It will be a cold day in hell before I show picture ID to buy something at Goodwill. I also refuse all requests for phone number and zip code.

The American Left and ISIS

Since the appearance of ISIS, the usual suspects on the left -- those in politics and media in particular -- have bent over backwards to argue that it has nothing to do Obama, that his silly foreign policy, undergrad strategic considerations, and infinitely collapsible notion of American responsibilities unfolded in a vacuum and could not possibly have had any effect on anything. No, the fault, of course, is that of George W. Bush and his neocon camarilla. If it weren’t for Bush, a strong, wise, and humane Saddam Hussein would be present to destroy this Jihadi upsurge, exactly the way

On the opening weekend of the 2014 NFL season, 1696 players suited up for game one. Of these, 1694 are in their twenties and thirties. Based on a survey I did of the AFC South division a few years ago, roughly 1170 of these players are African American. A few have gotten into trouble lately. (snip)What the media rarely discuss, and then only gingerly, is how black NFL players have fared compared to young black men not in the NFL. The answer, unfortunately, is much too well. According to the Bureau of Justice statistics, one in three black men can expect

During the earliest campaign to teach children about “good and bad touch” one of my children was fascinated by the subject and appointed herself as a bad touch detective. (snip)While serving in his official capacity as Commander in Chief of the armed forces, Barack Obama bestowed consensual “good touch” on the parents of probable turncoat Bob Bergdahl. And in the same capacity he has repeatedly bestowed non-consensual, “bad touch” on the highest order of military heroes, recipients of the Medal of Honor

Doesn’t anyone in the White House bother to think about the metaphors they use? In the wake of the awful, disgusting, hideous, XXX rated (for violence) video of David Haines being beheaded, carving his head off his shoulders, Barack Obama releases a statement with the most inappropriate metaphor possible: The United States stands shoulder to shoulder tonight with our close friend and ally in grief and resolve. Are they trying to be funny? Is there some demon inside the Obamas that is making them do things like commemorate 911 this year by sending Michelle to be photographed with a group named KaBOOM?

Nations are much like living organisms. One fundamental function of life is to tell the difference between friends and foes. When a nation fails to do that it will soon die. For more than two centuries the United States has known how to tell friend from foe, because we’ve had a robust sense of identity -- we understood how “a nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal” would be tested over and over again, by enemies foreign and domestic, to see “whether any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.” The West

The Ivanpah solar generating plant is located in California about 50 miles from Las Vegas near the California-Nevada border. 173,000 mirrors are used to concentrate the sun on 3 boiler-towers where water is turned into steam to drive turbines and generate electricity. The mirrors track the sun and concentrate sunlight so that the intensity of light falling on the boiler-towers is about 500 times stronger than sunlight -- a death ray. If a person were to be illuminated by this death ray, 3rd degree burns would follow within a few seconds. Insects that wander into the kill zone are quickly

Remember when Barack Obama was going through his “sort of god” phase in the media? Back then before he had a presidential track record, he was frequently pictured in the media with a halo.How times (and staff work) have changed! Last night’s speech clearly showed President Obama with horns protruding from his head. The staff that once upon a time posed him in front of Styrofoam columns managed to pull a Gingrich on him.

The Democratic Party and the mainstream media joined to run interference for Barack Obama when he became a national figure. Obama was painted as a charismatic, competent, new kind of politician. The passage of time destroyed this image. Now, the public increasingly sees Obama as incompetent, untrustworthy and unmotivated. Supporters are now in an awkward position. Do they continue to support what is increasingly seen as an inept president or do they turn against him? Continuing the subterfuge is dangerous. Lending credibility to an incredible man is a certain way to destroy one’s own validity. Obama, once considered a savior and asset

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues.

The anti-war president has finally found a way to wag the dog without upsetting his liberal base and war-weary electorate. Despite the beheading of two Americans, establishment of an Islamic caliphate, direct threats to the U.S. homeland, and the destabilization of the entire Middle East, Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are at war with barbaric Islamic jihadists. And he refuses to authorize the requisite boots on the ground. However, Obama just discovered his pre-midterm election method of wagging the dog -- distracting from his incompetent and dangerous response (or lack thereof) to the real threats to America’s national security

The U.S Senate passed a bill Thursday evening that will give President Barack Obama the authority to arm moderate Syrian rebels, which is a key part of his plan to fight the jihadist group Islamic State (also known as ISIS and ISIL). Shortly after the Senate passed the bill, which was passed by the House on Wednesday, Obama spoke from the White House. "I´m pleased that Congress, a majority of Democrats and a majority of Republicans in both the House and Senate, have now voted to support a key element of our strategy," Obama said.

On Thursday In a session with the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Secretary of State John Kerry was asked by Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) whether America was at war in Iraq and Syria. (Video) Kerry responded: “If you’re more comfortable calling it a war against this enemy of Islam then please do so. We’re happy to call it that.” So its official: America is at war with the enemy of Islam. However, strange bedfellows arise if the Obama administration so chooses to uphold Kerry’s claim that we are at war with the enemy(s) of Islam. The following displays that Secretary

For crying out loud, will someone “pleeeeease” take a stand for Conservatism? Someone forwarded this article to me, “Why Are Republicans Suddenly Leaning Left?” The article cites numerous examples of the GOP obviously believing it must embrace at least lukewarm Liberalism while backing away from Conservatism to win elections.The article mentioned that Mitt Romney avoided saying “Republican” in an ad supporting Scott Brown’s Senate run. Romney said in the ad referring to Brown, “will buck his own party to do what’s right for New Hampshire.” Romney’s statement implies that Conservatism can be mean, but rest assured that Brown will push

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting

What was the Islamic State thinking? We know it is sophisticated in its use of modern media. But what was the logic of propagating to the world videos of its beheadings of two Americans (and subsequently a Briton) — sure to inflame public opinion? There are two possible explanations. One is that these terrorists are more depraved and less savvy than we think. They so glory in blood that they could not resist making an international spectacle of their savagery — after all, they proudly broadcast their massacre of Shiite prisoners — and did not quite fathom how such a
