Not a Cruz man (yet??) but the blow back from Republican leaders is a bunch of self-righteous bunk.

As I asked at first, do you know this from legal precedence UKWP, or that's just how you read it? Obviously you THINK that's what it means, and I understood your view from the start. I'm not sure that is what it really means though. And your "read it till you understand" snark indicates you're just being arrogant and stubborn. You still refuse to answer my question. How do…

Oh my goodness, I believe it is up to the person whether they wear short or long sleeves based on what temperature is in the room. Some news outlets will do just about anything to stir up identity politics. With the many very difficult issues we have in this country, this one doesn't pass the "smell test".

I am willing to concede that everything is sexist if Ms Dvorak will agree to SHUT UP.

Thanks for all of that but go back and read the phrase "lawfully in his possession" and keep reading it until you understand it. It's in the middle of your own post. The reason that phrase is in there is to distinguish between property that you can use force to protect: that which is "lawfully in his possession" and that which you cannot use force to protect: that which is not lawfully in his…

Strawman: All Hat and No Cattle.......

1 year ago by Strawman

 

 

As the summer ticks on and the president flies from city to city to talk up climate change and talk down the rest of the country I pose this question: what’s new?

Well friends, here’s what’s new: Mr. Obama has again exposed himself for what he really is—a card carrying champion of social justice.  While he continues to travel (on your dime by the way) to generate funds for a party (Democrats) who, for the most part, don’t want much to do with him, he brazenly avoids dealing with a number of issues. The latest, of which, is the invasion of the country’s southern border.

Mr. Obama, who is scheduled to travel to Texas this week to headline 3 fundraisers, has chosen not to make an appearance at the border.  And, given the content of the speech he made in 2011, I guess I don’t blame him.  Talk about having your words come back on you.  Alligators?  Really?  And just what WILL the president be doing on his Texas trip?  Check The Blaze for more on that.

Of course were you to follow the immigration invasion story you would have to look to those on the right to get your information.   Or you could look north to the Canada Free Press who do a wonderful job of analyzing a situation well out of hand. According to the linked article, there’s the matter of a number MS-13 gang members who are mixed in with this batch of “children” who are linking up with those who came over earlier.  MS-13 is a gang linked to drug cartels and have a tendency not to play well with others.  In Chicago they're called "thugs."  Nancy Pelosi, have you a sippy cup for these tattooed waifs?

And dare I, white taxpayer that you believe me to be, weigh in on the Sgt. Tahmooressi situation? You know, the decorated veteran of 2 tours in Afghanistan who is STILL sitting in a Mexican prison cell (91 days and counting)?  What was that Mr. President: we don’t leave our men (in uniform) behind? Didn’t you say that when pulling the ol’ five-for-one for Sgt. Bergdahl?  Sure you did. What’s wrong Mr. President?  Afraid you might upset the Mexican government by doing something presidential?  I thought you had a pen and a phone?  What’s that?  You do, but you’re using the pen to bypass Congress and the phone to congratulate gay professional athletes? My mistake.  I had you mistaken for somebody special.

Instead, Mr. Obama, you’re the poster boy for the term “All hat, and no cattle.”  Somehow that phrase seems to sum you up best.
