… There is No Legal Justification for This [#data mining][#racial statistics]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 15th,2016

.. where in the hell do these ObamaCraps think that they get the ” controlling legal authority ” for doing something like this ? ..

.. our government is only authorized to collect racial statistics in certain areas for certain reasons . Those reasons are clearly stated , and are as a result of past patterns of conduct by other entities . However , that information is authorized to be collected for very specific and legally authorized reasons . Not for anything else …

.. [h/t NYPost.com]..
.. [link] to the news article …

…. now the ObamaCraps really plan on going crazy . They are acting to grossly misuse and abuse the powers and duties of these various agencies , taking them in directions that they have no legal reason or justification for doing so . They also are acting to collect , collate , analyze , and publish this information , even though the government is not authorized to do this . Why , for God ‘ s Sake , Why ?

.. to empower the legal radicals among the community activists [read — communist agitators] among POTUS ‘ S support base . This stuff can be reversed , but it will not be easy > With many ObamaCrap judges in the system polluting the works , it will taketime to clear up all of this mess …

… Pooling Guns ?!?! [#US Border Patrol on duty]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 2nd,2016

.. you have to be kidding ?!?! …

.. pooling guns among patrolling agents ? That sounds totally insane …

.. each patrolling B.P. agent should have both a handgun [or two] and a M4 carbine . These folks should be well – armed and properly armed . They should not , repeat not be sharing weapons and ammunition ….

… You Have to be KIdding [#food stamps][#luxury assets]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 28th,2016

.. we once had good welfare reform law ..

.. unfortunately , we now have the Age of Obama . Even the states , yes , even the GOP – led states , are taking off on monkeyshines of food stamp eligibility and waivers …

.. what they should be doing is using strict asset tests . My home state [Ohio] does so , and they do not kid around . Most other states do , unfortunately , and the food stamp rolls have exploded nationally as a result ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. we could reform welfare , once again , get people who do not need it off of the damn rolls , and boost the benefit to a somewhat higher level … the hitch ? — we need to get the First Wuss out of office . The sooner he is gone , the better we can get rid of budgetary and immoral crap such as this …

.. Michigan is a case in point . Sure , they wanted the added money . But the ObamaCraps forced them to play by their rules , not Michigan ‘ s . So the asset tests were waived for several years . However , it did not last for long . There were several thousand [yes , THOUSAND] tales of people [such as lottery winners , for example] still getting food stamps and welfare benefits even after winning lottery prizes . No , I am not talking about small change , either . Try $10,000 on up , to say the least …

.. Maine was another example . Even Maine , under the conservative GOPer Paul lePage , took the added money . Then the tales of people with luxury cars , motor homes , vacation homes , and those folks were still getting benefits . So , after his re – election , LePage had had enough . He called the ObamaCraps ‘ bluff , and won . He reimposed strict asset tests [at a level of $5,000 per person] to cull the monkeyshines . It still happens , though , but nowhere near as much …

… This Time the Government Got Caught [#sue and settle racket]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 23rd,2016

.. yeah , you heard it right .

.. it is fiendishly simple . The US government (currently in the thrall of the radical left) is sued by a so – called friendly interest group . Normally , the Government is required to go thru public comment and evaluation periods before enacting a regulation . Not with this . The ” sue and settle ” technique allows the government to circumvent this process . As a result , they get their desired result under the table , and enrich their interest group friends in the process …

.. The revelations of the Gruber videos , coupled with the actions of the ObamaCraps in general [the lies about the sale of ObamaCrapCare] have badly damaged , if not destroyed , the credibility of our government in general , and the ObamaCrap Administration in particular …

.. it will be very difficult for the ObamaCraps to marshall public support for anything during the remainder of the term . Most of all , their credibility is totally shot …

… Republicans do not Propose absurd Tax Cuts [#megan mcardle]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,July 17th,2016

.. what most people do not understand is that people do not realixze that the LameStream media and so media others operate from a false assumption : that the money is the government ‘ s to parse out to the people ..

.. it is the people ‘ s money , and taxes are levied in order to paY for government and its various tasks . Ergo , Spending needs to be paid for . Tax cuts do not need to be ” paid for .. ”

… It Figures [#State Department][#Friday document dump]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,April 9th,2016

.. another classic stunt by the executive branch ..

.. this is a dandy , it is a stunt that is pulled by many government departments . It is called the ” Friday document dump .. ”

.. one government body [usually Congress , sometimes another Executive Branch agency] wants something . Another agency has that something . Another agency stalls , and nothing gets done . Then , eventually , the Another Agency pushed out a huge amount of documents , called the ” dump . ” It is designed to piss off and frustrate the original agency in order for that group to give up the fight …

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. in this case , it was the Select Benghazi Cmte that wanted the documents . The State Department had them . It kept them for no reason for well over a year . Now , on a late Friday afternoon , when the LameStream Media is likely not paying attention , out the stuff goes ..

.. usually , the desired material is buried in the dump . The idea is to make it hard for the researchers to find it ..

.. it figures ..

… What Else the Grant of Immunity Signals [#EMailGate][#criminal investigation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,March 9th,2016

.. plenty ..

.. like it shows that a grand jury has been convened . You do not give grants of full immunity for the Government ‘ s health . The Government wants something , and it plans on getting it . It wants its ” pound of flesh ” from the higher ups who commissioned the thing in the first place ..

.. it is conducting a criminal investigation . It is not conducting a ” security review , ” as the Clintonoids have been claiming . The investigation is far more serious than an investigation of simple wrongdoing . The Government believes that a crime has been committed , and wants someone to pay for the crime …

.. Miz Hillary is one step closer to being on the legal ” hot seat . ” It refers to a ” target ” or ” subject ” letter that is sent from the Government . When that hits the news , it is ” dumb – de dumb –  dumb ” time for Miz Hillary on the campaign trail . Everyone will know that the Government is ready , willing , and able to come after her [and others] . The next is , well , you can guess ?? …. She is not there , not just yet . But she is just about there , that is for sure ..

… Once Again ! Another ObamaCrap Power Grab [#Clean Power Plan][#EPA]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 13th,2015

.. well , we knew that this power grab was coming . It does not make it any easier ..

.. it does not make the impact of a power grab like this one any easier to take , though ..

.. what is worse is that it relates to climate change . We all know that the so – called ” climate change ” theory is a scientific fallacy . The ObamaCraps are still going ahead with their radical activism . They act as if it is actual fact ..

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post // video clips ..

.. well , what is it ? Plain and simple , it is a ” reduction ” of 32 % in carbon dioxide emissions . This is to be accomplished over the next ten years . Evidently the EPA is not kidding around . Either the states [either individually , or as a group] co – operate , or the federal government will impose a plan on them ..

.. you can pretty much forget coal – fired energy generation . There is virtually no way that any state can or will meet their goal with any use of coal – fired electricity being used . So , they will have to do something else to do it . Obviously something much pricier ..

.. not only that , it forces a market in the use of renewable energy . Either wind energy , solar energy , geo – thermal , or something else . But renewables must be used , whether a state likes it or not …

… John Kitzhaber needs to Leave [#resignation]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,February 13th,2015

.. Governor Kitz has made a colossal mess of things in Oregon .

.. what was he thinking ? Or , to be more accurate , what did he refuse to think about ? …

.. [h/t — OregonLive.com]..
.. [link] to the editorial …

.. no , I am not a real big fan of the [Portland] Oregonian . They are most definitely LameStream Media – archtypes . However , in this case , they have put it out pretty well …

The questions about Kitzhaber’s judgment and competence ask themselves.  Is he so oblivious that he had no idea that campaign advisers were helping his girlfriend line up employment marked by ethical red flags? Is he really so clueless that he had no idea how much money Hayes collected through her fellowship, which would explain his apparently incomplete ethics filings? Or, alternatively, did he know and fail to act? Both possibilities are damning, and it’s difficult to imagine alternatives that are not.

Whether through gross inattention or complicity, Kitzhaber has broken faith with Oregonians. His career in Oregon politics is one of great accomplishment, but his past success does not excuse the mess he has made of the office with which Oregonians entrusted him.  He is now less a governor than a source of unending distraction. He can no longer lead Oregon effectively and should resign. His constituents deserve better.

… Nice Point , Tom Blumer [on Judicial Watch ‘ s legal fight] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,May 29th,2014

.. Tom Blumer is a real hard worker and ball – buster , but he really works hard at things . More often than not , he usually gets the job done …

… Social Conservatives Do Care about Marriage …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 25th,2014

.. as do I …

.. that is why no – fault divorce should be torn dorn and abolished ..

.. [h/t — theAmericanConservative]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the idea is to make people think about what marriage means … what it is  , what it means ,  what it is for , why to get married , and why to end a marriage …

.. probably one of the worst ideas was no – fault divorce . It allows two people  [a man and a woman , thank you very much] to end their relationship without realizing why ? …

.. if you have made a mistake , one of the most important things is that most important choice : why ?

.. the problem with no – fault divorce is that it allows you to avoid understanding and thinking about that choice . If you do not think about it , you just might forget about your history . If you do , then you just might be doomed to repeat that mistake …

.. the thing is not that it makes divorce a hassle . The idea of things like a cooling – off period , marriage classes (like my church , the Roman Catholic Church has) , and the elimination of no – fault divorce is that it makes people do one important thing …

.. T – H – I – N – K ..

.. Governments give sanction to marriage and to divorce . We have to deal with the results of both , most importantly , with children and child support , abuse , infidelity , and whatnot … . So , how a marriage comes about is the government ‘ s business , to a certain point . Given the appalling divorce rate , and the damage that divorce does to a family .. to be honest , how a divorce comes about is also in part a government ‘ s business .

.. there is not an establishment clause in the Constitution . Yes , it is important in this argument . It is a prohibition against a state –  sanctioned and ” established ” church , i.e. , as was the Church of England is in the U.K. . Does it matter ? Yes ..

.. Many people get married in a Church . They generally do not get divorced in one . However , the foundation of our law is our morality . A great deal of the foundation of our morality comes from the sense of right and wrong . The largest part , though , comes from our sense of faith . Even an atheist has faith , believe it or not .

.. We need to make couples think about who they are , why they get married , and why they get divorced . No , it is not making things a ” hassle . ” Society has that right to expect that of civilized and moral people to behave themselves in a civil and moral way , by thinking about what they are doing , and not just acting on their feelings …

.. Sure , the feelings of love are a damn important part of a relationship , and of marriage . But , it is not the only part . There are more practical considerations , folks .. Such as whether it is the right thing to do , or whether we should . That is the idea of marriage classes , in basic … to be sure and certain as is possible …

.. especially , in order to avoid the ” D ” word , if at all possible …

… there will be a Bailout of Insurance Companies …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,December 26th,2013

.. and it will burn the DemoCraps badly ..

.. you may wonder : how ? and why ? It is already written into the ObamaCrapCare bill . The feature in question is what is called ” risk corridors . ” Basically , if the insurance companies take on excessive amounts of risk , they will be compensated for it . It is in the law , already .

.. [h/t — http://DailyCaller.com%5D
.. [link] to the article and video clip …

.. Boy , does that stink . The insurers got into bed with the ObamaCraps on this bill , and got a provision like this placed into the bill . it covers their financial backsides , so that they will not lose excessive amounts of money . They may not make much , though , but they will not lose their shirts , either . What is worse is that the C.B.O. ” scored ” this feature as having no net financial effect on the bill . Are you kidding ?

.. It will not have a net effect on the insurers . They will be contractually covered for any losses outside certain ” boundaries , ” or the ” risk corridors . ” Guess who it will screw , and badly ? Yep , the taxpayer , and Big Time ! Nice one , DemoCraps . You have given more ” bulletin board ” material to the G.O.P. . Duuuh !

.. the Insurance business does not come without risk . It is the way the thing operates . Well , it is the way it is supposed to operate . If an insurer misprices its risks , or does not invest its premiums well enough to smooth things out , well …. . It is supposed to go out of business , or at least go bankrupt , so someone else can take over its market and business . Those idiots got into bed with His Lordship and the rest of the Dems , so that they could protect themselves . Now , they look like a bunch of ” errand boys ” for POTUS and for H.H.S. . See what happens .

.. Those dummies may end up losing their shirts , anyway . Serves them right !

.. It may not have much effect at first , at least in 2014 . It will in 2015 , and become an anchor around the necks of the Dems in the 2016 Presidential campaign . An expensive one , at that …

… Another Spot – On Shot by Dr. Charles [ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 1st,2013

.. this one is a continuation of the antics of the government over the last 50 years …

.. Also , it is a result of the Law of UnIntended Consequences , resulting from the adoption of the ObamaCrapCare bill . These idiots never seem to learn that their actions have consequences , and because of them , what happens results in the opposite effects from what they wanted to happen . Duuuh !!! ….

[link] — video clip from the Special Report with Bret Baier panel .

.. These morons use the reductions in reimbursements to doctors and hospitals to finance their Rube Goldberg contraption . Then , when things start to happen , like when hospitals choose not to participate in the ObamaCrapCare networks , or , when the State Exchanges exclude them , and some of them go kaput ! , well , duh !! …

.. Also , they do the same with reimbursement payments to doctors . They expect from their economic analysis that the same or greater #s of doctors will continue to practice . Then , when multitudes of doctors leave the profession , or choose to retire , they are shocked , yes , shocked by the action . Then they wonder why the newly insured cannot find a doctor to treat them .

.. Dummies , if you want medicine to function properly , you need to reintroduce market ecconomics into the system . That includes the functions where the government participates in the system . You think medical inflation in the private sector is the result of the private sector . It is not , stupid . It is because of 50 years of low – ball cheapskating by governments that the inflation comes privately . What do you expect ?

… Liberals loathe Freedom , love Dependency …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 22nd,2013

.. If you have been reading liberal websites and news stories lately (I do, and I encourage you to do so , too ) you’ve probably noticed an all-out assault on Walmart and its allegedly low compensation. Note that these critics are often the same ones asking for more government in Americans’ daily lives.

.. An article on AlterNet Wednesday, for example, bore the title “Walmart’s latest ploy to replace the middle class with an underclass forced to buy its short-lived, shoddy goods,” and focused on the retailing giant’s “Buy America” pledge. The numbers behind that pledge sound good but lack substance, according to the article. Come to think of it, that sounds like a lot of bills in Congress.

.. The title certainly illustrates the thinking behind the Walmart hate, but it also raises this question: If these critics on the left are so concerned about people being dependent on Walmart, why aren’t they equally concerned about people being dependent on government  ?

.. Searching AlterNet for “government dependence” brings up multiple items denouncing Republicans for talking about dependence. A search for “food stamps” brings up legions of items denouncing Republicans for daring to suggest cutting $4 billion a year from a program that already spends over $70 billion a year. Similar results were found for “welfare,” “Medicaid,” and “Medicare.”

.. Searching for these terms on ThinkProgress and Mother Jones is no different. ThinkProgress even praised North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory for vetoing a bill that would have mandated drug testing for welfare recipients (no-questions-asked dependence?).

Perhaps the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Sean Hackbarth summed it up best, writing “Business = evil. Government = benevolent. #LiberalLogic” on Twitter.

.. At least one can understand why these idiots do not like freedom and liberty . They would rather be tethered to the government “teat” than be independent and self – sustaining and on their own . They would rather have people dependent on these government programs in perpetuity instead of treating them as they were originally intended : as an assist to regain one ‘  s footing in life .

.. The closing of embassies all over the Arab World is waaay beyond the pale . You do not deal with a security threat by digging a hole in the ground , and hiding your head in it . You begin to deal with the threat or threats . You take a proactive approach , and go on the offensive .

.. I thought that POTUS ‘ foreign policy is weak as a spaghetti noodle , but not this weak . The bad guys will just wait us out , and hit us when we least expect it . They will do it when it most suits them , and when it least suits us . Get serious , folks .

.. You have to move forward with a proactive approach . You need to give your intelligence services the tools to do the job that they were brought together to do . One also should give the intelligence services firm direction and guidance on what is expected , but not to micromanage what they do .  Give them room to do the job that they need to do . Be upfront . Defend what they do , and do not lowjack them with legal probes for past actions for which , directly or indirectly , they had the legal authority to do .

.. Make the bad guys respect them , and fear you . Then , they will know that retaliation will be swift , sure , and certain .

.. Also , be more careful about how one elects political leaders . It applies to senators , congresscritters , as well as to POTUS . Weak policy and weak leaders is asking for trouble .
