Legislation

My views on the legislative process, executive orders and other processes that allow our country to succeed and fail.

Executive Order: National Defense Resources Preparedness

The mainstream media let this one fall through the cracks, or simply missed it. In either case, it doesn’t shock me and is why I no longer trust the mainstream media. They’d much rather inject racial bias and race-bait a horrific tragedy in Florida than full-fill their duty of being the 4th branch of government; to expose wrongdoing therein and report to the People. This is why I do my own research and encourage you to do the same. Especially when it comes to the National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive…

National Defense Authorization Act

It’s amazing what our Congress can legislate, then get passed as law without a single complaint from the media or from very few people. The latest example is The National Defense Authorization Act (S.1867), the biggest attack on the civil liberties of all American citizens since the Patriot Act. It gives the US military and the Federal Government unprecedented powers to detain US citizens indefinitely and without trial under the law of war. Most progressives will argue that the government will never exercise those powers, but if that’s the case,…

Do Police Prevent Crime? More Police Better?

Burglar breaking into house

Ask yourself this question: Who prevents a crime targeted at you from happening? Most people would answer, the Police. But do police really prevent crime? How often has a police officer stopped a home invasion? What about a mugging? What about a bank robbery? How often has a police officer stopped a murder from happening? Or a fight from breaking out in a bar? Unless they happen to be in the right place and the right time, it’s unlikely they could prevent any crime from happening. Usually, people call 911…

How to Solve Illegal Immigration

Let me first begin by saying I’m not discriminating against Mexicans and I am not racist. I believe anyone who is not a criminal should be allowed citizenship into the United States. I do not believe we need military troops patrolling our borders. I do not believe there is any need to remove those who already reside in the country illegally. There’s a better way to solve the problem. To solve this problem, one must ask themselves why is it immigrants are entering the country illegally in the first place?…

Congressional Compromise or Obstruction?

The word obstruction has replaced the word compromise within Congress, and to some this is infuriating. Why can’t these obstructionist republicans simply pass all the legislation the democrats want? After all, the democrats are the majority so they should get what they want! Why do the republicans have to stop every bill in the House? Why must they filibuster everything in the Senate? For some this is frustrating, but this is the way it’s supposed to work. That’s why we have three branches of government. One branch can shut the…

Another Horrible Gun Control Article by the Media

I guess the major media outlets will publish any article that meets their biased position. Here’s an example from the Boston Globe … http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2011/01/12/bay_state_sanity/ This is truly a bad article, poor journalism, and flat out awful in its attempts to claim laws stop crazy people from doing crazy things. In this particular case, Brian McGrory is trying to equate Massachusetts guns laws to civility. Problem is, crazy lunatics are not civil. And as we’ve seen so many times before, there are people who refuse to blame the person who committed…

Health Care Reform: Buyer Beware

If Obama’s Health Care Reform bill is so good for the American People, why is he having to bribe, plead and beg for its passage? For anyone who is capable of thinking objectively (Republican, Democrat, Independent), this process should be setting off very loud alarm bells. You are being fooled. It doesn’t get any more obvious than this. Set all the rhetoric aside, from both sides of the aisle, and ask yourself these common sense questions: If the Health Care Reform bill is so good, why can’t it pass on…
