Government shutdown for just a couple of days.

This was all about the Democrats wanting to tie in a deal about illegal immigrants with a continuing resolution to keep the government working. (Working, that’s a laugh in itself). The Democrats want the so called, “Dreamers” to be able to apply for citizenship, guaranteeing them an increase in the Democrats voting block. The word Dreamers, is a term started by the Obama administration and means only that they are here in the US illegally, but “Dreamers” sounded so much nicer than illegal aliens.

The presence of these people are the fault of their parents that brought them here. They are not the responsibility of the citizens of this country. The responsibility lies directly with their parents that committed the illegal act of bringing them here. Let the responsibility fall with the parents to work out how they are going to deal with the consequences of their actions.

Government shutdown over illegal immigrants immenent?

It is hard for me to understand the reasoning behind the Democrats desire to shut down the federal government over the issue of undocumented immigrants, also known as illegal immigrants. Does the American public not see this as an affront to the American Citizen? Are the Democrats more interested in serving illegals than serving the American Citizen? Does citizenship in this great country mean nothing anymore? Do the rights of foreigners supersede the rights of citizens in the Liberal’s view of America? These are questions that I would like to see pose to the Democrat leadership by the main line media. Of course, that won’t happen.

Senator Chelsea Manning? What is this country coming to?

If you don’t recall who Chelsea Manning is, she (he) is a former U.S. Army soldier that leaked thousands of classified and sensitive military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks.  Chelsea Manning was then known as Bradley Manning and was charged with violations of the Espionage Act  and other offenses including aiding the enemy.  Found guilty of 17 of the original charges, he was then sentenced to 35 years at a maximum security prison.

Well, the story doesn’t end there.  It seems that there are three new facets to the Bradley Manning story.  I can’t comprehend how this story is playing out and how this society is allowing it to happen.

Oprah for President?

Isn’t this getting a bit ridiculous?  The Democrats are now considering Oprah for a presidential run in 2020.  What has this nation come to when all you need to become elected, (or to be seriously considered), is only name recognition and popularity.  Thankfully, I am at an  age when I only have about two future presidential elections that I may be able to vote in.  Age being the critical issue here.  This generation of voters and politicians should be writing their apologies to the future generations starting right now!

Political Commentary

Commentary from a conservative viewpoint, no I don’t mean the Republican Party line. Republicans haven’t been true conservatives for years. We believe in a common sense approach to conservative principles, no right-wing knee-jerk reactions here.

Having lived as long as I have and have lived through many election cycles since Eisenhower was first running for President of the US I have formed my political views that have changed and expanded over the years.  These views are my own and do not reflect any political party as I have found that there are extremes in all of them.  If you disagree with me you are welcome to express it.  But, I ask that you express yourself in a matter that does not resort to personal attacks and name calling.  Hopefully we are all adults here and we can act accordingly.
