You’re joking right?

7 Sep

Didn’t watch Obama’s speech last night. Actually forgot it was even on, not that I would have watched anyway.

But here’s the gist that I get from the paper. Barack’s plan is better, though it’s also going to be harder.

Does he mean legimately tougher like people have to suck it up and deal with a little hardship now to have prosperity later or harder in the sense that it’s going to make everything more difficult.

I’m sure he thinks it’s choice A, but reality says it’s choice B. Why?

After 4 years he still has’t done anything to improve America’s odds in the future. He hasn’t done anything that makes it tougher for now while moving towards a stronger future. Evidence in the record high unemployment, disability roles, and food stamps.

You know what would be hard, people not spending their entire lives on government assistance. Illegal immigrants being dealt with definitively and not allowed to walk the streets free and unafraid of prosecution. The government making an effort to being cutting the $16 trillion deficit it currently has, the interest alone on which is too much for us to pay for. Or even the government cutting the size of it’s employee ranks, perhaps we could start with the TSA.

Obama says the republicans have no plan or they don’t want us to see it. But really if they have no plan what’s the difference? What would be different if it’s Mitt Romney running around with no plans or Obama.

Seems like the biggest difference is that Mitt Romney has actually done stuff before, whereas looking back at Obamas career what we find is a freshmen Senator who managed to merely vote present most of the time.

Lead, Follow or get the hell out of the way!

A brain is a terrible thing to waste

Here’s a story from the Charlotte Observer;

Busload of undocumented U.S. residents to protest at DNC

The bus riders are all illegal immigrants traveling to Charlotte to protest at the DNC. There is such a lack of logic here it’s hard to know where to start.

First why would you protest the people who are helping you? The Democrats can’t push Americans out of the way fast enough to help illegals so why did they choose to protest there?

Then there’s this line from the article,

The bus riders say they plan to use “civil disobedience” to draw attention to law-enforcement tactics they view as unfairly targeting them.

Your plan to draw attention to what you view as “unfair” law enforcement tactics is to purposely antagonize law enforcement? S0unds like they really thought this through.

But it gets better, here’s some quotes from the article by illegals participating in the protest.

“We are tired of the injustice,” said Fernando Lopez, 21, who came to the United States from Mexico and now lives in Phoenix. “We are tired of the indignity.”

and…
“I want people to know the real me,” said Torres, who also lives in Phoenix. “We’re living in a cage of gold. It’s gold but we’re not free.”
Really? You have to suffer injustice, indignity, lack of freedom?
Rather ironic since you weren’t offered those things since you just ran across the border anyway.
You’re not supposed to be here. You don’t get justice, dignity, and freedom simply for being present it’s reserved to citizens only.
Does everyone in the stadium at the Super Bowl get a championship ring? Does anyone who sits in on classes at Harvard get a degree?
No. Just because you were there doesn’t mean you did the work or earned it.
They said it themselves, it’s a cage of gold. They’re surrounded by gold that they aren’t even entitled to and yet they’re complaining.
It’s astonishing.
Does a thief who breaks into a house with less than impressive wares wait for the owner to come home and complain that they should get better stuff for him to steal?
This is utterly ridiculous. Not only are these people illegally in the country, but they have the gall to complain that we aren’t doing enough for them.
And you wonder why most Americans are staunchly against immigration.
