Much of the cheating is done with the absentee ballots I hear, but we could still require a fingerprint by mail, or do absentees at the post office. We have the technology to track this, but no willpower from the Democrat cheaters. ACORN is alive and well, they just changed their name and dispersed a little.

Now you're making stuff up. Nursing homes, retirement homes, such as the Lincoln -Douglas and Lampe High-rise, and the like are prime targets for "get out the vote" groups. They regularly (during the election cycle) visit, and make sure all eligible voters get registered (if they wish) and are transported to the polls if able to make a cognitive decision. Also, many groups have slush funds…

How about "City department heads review their proposed budgets with aldermen who never have to justify their own budgets."

Strawman: From Mr. "I Didn't Know" to Mr. "I Know Everything!"

2 months ago by Strawman

 

The most comfortably numb public official in the history of this once great country took a big step on Super Bowl Sunday when he, Barack Obama, told millions of viewers that there wasn’t even “a smidgeon of corruption” when referring to the IRS scandal.  You know, the one where the IRS has been accused of targeting “Tea Party” 501 C3’s over the past few years?  The one where former IRS official Lois Lerner pled the fifth and then took a hike to “escape the media frenzy?”  Yeah, that one.

Let’s remember this is the same guy who knew nothing about the IRS scandal, and Fast and Furious, and was totally misinformed about the happenings on September 11, 2012. Dude knew nothing. And now he knows and has the answers to----everything.

While Mr. Obama revels in this recent point of clarity we now learn that he’s put his foot down on global warming or climate change or whatever the left is calling it this week.  The same group who have pumped in and lost billions of tax payer dollars on this green plan and that have another move up their sleeve; climate hubs.

In substance, the creation of the climate hubs is a limited step, but it is part of a broader campaign by the administration to advance climate policy wherever possible with executive authority. The action is also part of a push to build political support for the administration’s more divisive moves on climate change — in particular, the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations on coal-fired power plants.

The E.P.A. is now drafting rules that will limit carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants and potentially shutter hundreds of them across the country. The administration anticipates objections from the coal industry and many states when the regulations are completed.  The E.P.A.; I don’t remember voting for anyone at the E.P.A.   Did you?
"The shift to a cleaner energy economy won’t happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way," Obama said. "But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact.And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say yes, we did," Obama added emphatically.

Well, that indeed is a noble thought Mr. President, but your intentions, as usual, have a hollow ring.  You and your collection of save the earth lefties are all about doing away with coal and fossil fuels, but no one on your team has yet to come up with a workable replacement.  Not one! You prattle on about “the children” but you and yours have no problem spending America’s future generations into debtor’s prison.  Right now, each man, woman and child in this country owes $193,000 towards the national debt.   

And you’re worried about climate change?   There’s this little thing called jobs, Mr. Obama.  How’s that project coming along?  Pick up that pen of yours and take a few notes?

How about you attempt to do ONE THING in the remaining days of term two that helps this country.  Not reforms it in your twisted, idealistic image, but something that actually helps the country prosper.  Take your pen, sign a document that would approve the Keystone pipeline, call off the E.P.A. and any other self-important government agency that feels that regulating and legislating the citizens who make this country go is the way to “transform” American.  We’re regulated up to here and fed up with it.

And then take your phone and call some real American citizens---not your bought and paid for union thugs and ACORN crowd-- and ask We the People what We need in order to get America back on its feet.  Can you handle that?

Or should I be addressing someone above your pay grade?
