Obviously the "budget deal" laid out by Paul Ryan is getting harsh criticism from the right within the GOP. Little if anything leadership produces goes without criticism from these puppets of the democrat party who are either double agents or feckless dupes. But criticism of McConnell from the leader of a Ky TEA party group makes no sense at all.
Calling for help in his quest to "remove the head of the beast" by outsing McConnell former candidate John Kemper III says that McConnell is a sellout.
Here's the headline that makes John's comment seem so out of touch with reality:
And how did Kemper, the head of an organized TEA party group respond to the reality of this headline? Well, look for yourself:
Look, I get it. There are a bunch of people who fall in love, head over heels, when a candidate comes along and sings them the kind of love song they so desperately want to hear. Lately the TEA party bunch has swooned to the sounds of "I love you out of principle, never out of politics." They have fallen for the illusion that there is really a special category of candidates and elected officials out there who are pure to the core.
Let them watch the process as long as I have and I'm sure they will come to realize that there isn't anybody that pure. Either that or they will sink deeper into their fantasy world, drift further from reality and once again be marginalized in the shadows of political power because of their intransigent delusions.
Do some people have a more pragmatic approach to politics than others, recognizing the limitations of what can be done until they have a majority of the necessary votes in order to move their part of the agenda forward? Yes. But the folks who can't see past their dogma are no better at winning than the coach who always "goes for it" on fourth down instead of kicking a field goal. Sometimes putting points on the board is better than trying to prove how tough you are.
McConnell is reportedly going to vote against Ryan's budget deal. And when he does, that's some form of disgusting politics, but when Ted Cruz votes against it the vote is more principled and there won't be any politics involved?
Give me a break.
John, tell folks to put down the bong and back away.
Well it's Christmas party season and though getting "out and about" isn't everybody's comfort zone, this year you can see candidates and political wannabes cruising the cocktail crowd dropping tidbits in the ears of all who will listen. For a summary of what is going on, here's the chatter:
Katie Stine's seat centered in Campbell County is about to produce an interesting GOP primary. Wil Schroder, son of the late Supreme Court Justice, is working the crowds trying to line up support for his candidacy to replace Stine. Schroder is a relatively new face in GOP circles having gotten some attention two years ago helping with the campaign of Thomas Massie. Of course the depth of the Schroder/Arlinghaus/Bruggeman family connections in Northern Kentucky are legendary and his father's legacy of service and respect will go a long way to help him.
But the wife of Toy Sheldon, the Kentucky GOP fourth district chairman, Deb Sheldon has announced that she will be seeking the office as well. As you will recall, Troy Sheldon and Dick Knock formed a "Super PAC" to support Massie. This will provide some interesting moments for Massie next year who, as of now, has told folks he is going to stay out of the primary.
The race for the Court of Appeals seat vacated by Michele Keller who was appointed to the Kentucky Supreme Court by Governor Beshear to replace Schroder got off to a very regionally dedicated start last night.
Justin Sanders, son of well known Covington attorney Bob Sanders, and brother of Kenton County's Commonwealth Attorney Rob Sanders, held his kick-off at Ft. Mitchell Country Club last night. Judging by the number of people in attendance from both parties it looks like Sanders will enjoy wide spread support for his candidacy in the vote rich Northern Kentucky area as he challenges the current appointee to that office, Allison Jones.
Jones was appointed to fill Keller's spot by Governor Beshear. It was widely rumored at the time that her family had contributed and or helped raise a substantial amount of money for Beshear. Jones is from the far western end of the district and isn't likely to do as well in Northern Kentucky as Sanders, but she is already exploring relationships in the area eventhough, according the the Secretary of State's website, she hasn't filed for office yet.
In the race for the Kenton Circuit Court seat to be vacated by retiring Judge Marty Sheehan five candidates have lined up, hoping to be one of the top two vote getters to survive the primary and get a shot at running for the office in November.
Out of Rob Sanders office comes Jim Redwine, a tough lawyer without much political background. Likely to be the guy going after the GOP vote is attorney Bob Winter. From Linda Tally Smith's Boone County Commonwealth's Attorney's office comes Jason Hiltz, also unknown by many in political circles. Kate Molloy, an attorney in Covington is running her second race having challenged Kenton County attorney Garry Edomonston a decade ago. Her biggest hurdle will be overcoming her connections with liberal ideologies in a predominantly conservative district.
Kathy Lape, daughter of former Circuit Judge Ray Lape is the fifth candiate to file for the Circuit Court seat so far. She also held a fundraising event this week which was widely attended by many of Northern Kentucky's politico's and legal community. Kathy was previously appointed as a family mediator and served as Kenton District Judge in 2008 until she was very narrowly defeated in that election. Lape should be the top vote getter out of the field of five.
While Thomas Massie has yet to draw a challenger whenever his name is mentioned, eyes roll. It is pretty well the consensus that he will keep his job a while longer but certainly has done little to win the respect of his constituents outside of the small group of activists who brought him to office in the first place.
In the race for Kenton Judge Executive Steve Arlinghaus is swatting a swarm of bees over the Cincinnati Airport controversy and though it might be much ado about nothing it has provided his opponent Chris Knochelman with a list of talking points that have won him substantial attention. However, as in most cases, the power of incumbency is pretty tough to overcome. Arlinghaus enjoys the benefits of a big family and the power base he has built from the Judge Executives spot. Knochelman appears to have gained some traction but is now fighting the fact that Arlinghaus seems to have succeeded in winning over some pretty vocal TEA party types. While the Boone County GOP is clearly a TEA party dominated organization, and Kenton County is still pretty traditional, Knochelman needs to appeal to more than the old guard who opposed Arlinghaus in the first place.
In the Mitch McConnell race things look like they are going to be very tough for the minority leader in Northern Kentucky. Just about as many eyes roll at the mention of Mitch as roll over the mention of Massie. Democrats are putting on a full court press for Grimes and Mitch isn't getting much cover from his usual army of loyal republicans. The best you hear from what should be staunch GOP'ers about Mitch is a repeat of what Jesse Benton was overheard saying about his boss, that they are going to vote for McConnell but only while pinching their nostrils.
If the vote were held today, based solely upon the cocktail party chatter, it looks like the winners would be Schroder, Sanders, Lape, Arlinghaus and Mitch, by a nose.
Circuit Judge Fred Stine sentenced Charles Luke, 30 years old, to 17 years in prison after Luke pled guilty under Kentucky's Fetal Homicide law following a wreck in 2009 which resulted in the death of an unborn child. Luke spent four years in jail before the final sentence was announced.
Kentucky is one of at least 38 states that have fetal homicide laws, according to a story by Jim Hannah with the Kentucky Enquirer. Now consider this.
Kentucky has four specific statutes that provide punishment for "fetal homicide" which apply to any baby, from "conception onward, without regard to age, health, or condition of dependency." KRS 507A.010
If the killing was intentional, it is a capital offense (death or life without parole). If it was intentional but while acting under "extreme emotional disturbance" it is a Class B felony (10-20 years in prison).
If killing an unborn child was done "wantonly" including by way of a motor vehicle, it is a Class C felony (5-10 years in prison).
If in killing an unborn child the actor was "reckless" it is a Class D felony (1-5 years in prison).
Now here's the real kicker. No matter how it occurs, if the mother of a child kills her unborn baby, it is not a crime.
If she stabs it, drives drunk and kills it, takes heroin and kills it, jumps out of window and kills it, nothing she does to kill her baby is a crime under the same chapter of the law that applied to Mr. Luke.
And here's the worst part, killing a baby during an abortion or any other "medical procedure" is never a crime, unless by malpractice.
In otherwords we are still so barbaric in this nation as to give the mother of a child the unfettered, unilateral right, to kill the baby without penalty.
Listen to the spin and tell me it isn't an out right lie. This is taken directly from WhiteHouse.gov:
When I took office, the American auto industry – the heartbeat of American manufacturing – was on the verge of collapse. Two of the Big Three – GM and Chrysler – were on the brink of failure, threatening to take suppliers, distributors and entire communities down with them. In the midst of what was already the worst recession since the Great Depression, another one million Americans were in danger of losing their jobs.
As President, I refused to let that happen. I refused to walk away from American workers and an iconic American industry. But in exchange for rescuing and retooling GM and Chrysler with taxpayer dollars, we demanded responsibility and results. In 2011, we marked the end of an important chapter as Chrysler repaid every dime and more of what it owed the American taxpayers from the investment we made under my Administration’s watch. Today, we’re closing the book by selling the remaining shares of the federal government’s investment in General Motors. GM has now repaid every taxpayer dollar my Administration committed to its rescue, plus billions invested by the previous Administration.
But today we have learned the truth:
The government bailout of General Motors ended on Monday with the Treasury Department’s announcement that it had sold its final shares of G.M. stock.
Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said the government sold the last of what was once a 60 percent stake in G.M. Taxpayers lost about $10 billion on their $49.5 billion investment in the Detroit automaker. “With the final sale of G.M. stock, this important chapter in our nation’s history is now closed,” Mr. Lew said. [NYTimes]
Why do Americans let him get by with this level of deceit?
Both Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi made it clear: if you have a pre-existing condition, Obamacare will provide you with coverage you can't get elsewhere. It was then and is today a lie.
One of the key promises from the Obama administration was that, at the very least, people with pre-existing conditions would be insured. Now these people are having their insurance canceled – because of Obamacare.
The funeral for Nelson Mandela has been advertised to be the biggest such event in modern history. President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama will travel to South Africa today on Air Force One, accompanied by former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura. As world leaders arrive let's set history straight.
"Apartheid" is an African word that means living apart. In other words, it is an official policy of racial segregation.
This policy began long before South Africa was a nation, back when it was a Dutch Colony. It eventually became the official policy of the nation and was enforced with League Of Nations support even in South West Africa. Eventually the ruling government removed the citizenship of black residents based solely on skin color.
The Apartheid government was the subject of sanctions by the United States and Great Britain. But little else was done to end the serious mistreatment of black people in South Africa.
As blacks protested the worsening conditions of their lives, the government arrested and jailed them. This in turn brought protest to a much more violent confrontation. [Wikipedia]
Educated, wealthy black skinned people in South Africa organized and formed a variety of groups with the mission of ending the Apartheid through negotiations and political pressure. Among those who led such groups was Nelson Mandela.
Mandela was college educated. He was a member of the Thembu royal family. While his early efforts to end Apartheid were non-violent, he eventually formed a militant group called Umkhonto we Sizwe. He aligned himself with the Communists who engaged in many acts of terrorism. Madela was a Communist Party member when he was arrested.
His group had led a sabotage campaign that landed him in jail. He was convicted of conspiracy to overthrow the government and sentenced to life in prison. He spent 27 years behind bars.
Mandela was released in 1990 and began negotiations with the government of South Africa to end Apartheid. Apartheid officially ended in 1994 with multi-racial elections which made Mandela South Africa's first black president.
He only served one term in office after which he focused on social reform, charitable work and became known as "The Father Of The Nation", a respected international figure whose passing will receive world wide notice.
He has been denounced as a Marxist, a Communist and a terrorist. All of these are true. And while many of us to this day hold dear the right to petition the government for redress in a non-violent, peaceful process of debate and persuasion, that has not always been our history here, in the United States. [Wikipedia]
I remind you of the words of Patrick Henry, spoken to the Virginia House of Burgess, at a time when we in this land were under colonial rule, subjects of a tyrant and without the full measure of our God given rights:
Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done, to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne. In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained, we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us!
...The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come. [History.org]
Would our founders have been called traitors? They were. Would their actions have been declared terrorism? They were. Would they have been arrested, killed, jailed and broken by the King's men? All of this happened.
But after our founders won, they established a new nation and in that form gave us each a peaceful way to revolt against the government, to replace those who do not represent us, to end abuses, and govern ourselves. The entire House of Representatives is elected every two years. Every seat at one time. Our forefathers gave us the law by which we can replace our government without blood shed.
Today there are some in this nation who have called for armed revolution. Even among presumably rational people frustration runs high. And in some circles the most radical among us are losing patience and decry the system of elections as not producing the kind of results they want, fast enough.
When the world remembers Nelson Mandela it would be wrong to exclude the facts that he was a Communist and a terrorist as much as it would be wrong to forget that he fought for liberty.
It will be up to you to decide what his life was about, not the revisionists who are working to change history. And it will be up to you to decide if there is ever a rational basis for the murder of innocents.
Let's hope that his funeral will inspire these kinds of discussions rather than the mere glorification of one man's life.
One writer has prepared a public eulogy of sorts for Nelson Mandela that most who lament the death of nationalist leaders dare not repeat. I share it here because history is made of facts. I report, you decide.
With the media gushing about the greatness of Nelson Mandela now on the day after his death, a counterpoint with the rest of the story is badly needed. Below are a few video interviews of South African missionary Peter Hammond, who tells the real truth about Mandela.
Portrayed as a liberator by the media, Mandela was a Marxist and convicted terrorist. Hammond relates of Mandela:
He admitted in open court—pleaded “guilty”—and remember, he was trained as a lawyer—he pleaded “guilty” to 156 acts of public violence and terrorism. He was the head of the revolutionary terrorist wing of the ANC [African National Congress] “Umkhonto we Sizwe.” And he was behind so many different operations: from the plotting of bombs in the railway station (which killed women and children, which crippled people), bombs in shopping centers, attacks on farmers, . . . so many acts of violence.
He goes on to say that modern portrayals make Mandela out to be a saint, but never mention why he was in prison to begin with. It was for good and just reason. “Not even the Amnesty International would take his case, because they said he wasn’t a political prisoner. He had had a fair trial and a reasonable sentence. He had his day in court. He was not a political prisoner. He was in jail for acts of violence.”
In light of the truth about Mandela, Hammond can say, “I’m astounded that so many in the west idolize Nelson Mandela and lift him up as a messianic figure, because they obviously don’t know what he teaches, what he believes, or what he does, or his support for some of the most radical Marxist dictatorships on the planet.”
This includes many Christians: “A lot of Christians out there idolize Nelson Mandela just because they’ve only been given false, misleading, and incomplete information.”
In the wake of the Boston bombings, Obama stated that the acts would be investigated as acts of terrorism, because, “Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror.”
“Any time. . . .”
Yet this morning, when addressing the death of Mandela only a few months later, the same president said, “We’ve lost one of the most influential, courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth.”
There is indeed a disconnect in the public discourse.
And yes, even, many Christians will be confused and cornered. Many will find themselves trapped by the perceived dilemma created by the whitewashed narrative of Mandela. If opponents openly criticize him, they risk being publicly associated a friends of apartheid and racism (just as supporters of states’ rights in the U.S. today get associated unduly with slavery and racism). Give Mandela a pass, however, and you give a pass to his Marxist ideology and terrorism. It sounds a lot like many other lesser-of-two-evils decisions presented to us. [American Vision]
Statistics show that young voters make up only a small percentage of the overall vote totals but they are an important part of the picture nonetheless. Why? Because winning their loyalty has been, historically, the way to keep them in the fold until they get old enough to feel like voting.
Democrats won the youth voters in the 1960's and kept most of them. Ron Paul began his revolution on college campuses where "Google Ron Paul" was a brilliant strategy aimed at capturing the loyalty of what has become the core activists and young elected officials coming out of the TEA party who are now in their 30's.
What did both of these movements among young people have in common? Freedom from the government.
In the 1960's it was all about ending the war, free love, pot smoking and a general desire to have no rules. The Ron Paul movement tracked very similar to these things.
But now with daily news of an even bigger Big Brother spying on the text messages, cell phone conversations and emails of American citizens on a staggering scale, the idea of government intrusion into private lives has taken on a far more menacing visage, and in most of these areas that intrusion is touching young people where they meet, socialize and communicate.
It would be a very good idea for the GOP, including mainstream republicans, to ride that bull and not get thrown. If there is any one area where the GOP can take the lead and get on board with the angst of the next generation of likely voters, it would be a dedicated effort to end government snooping.
Obama can't pull it off and neither can Hillary. Their fingerprints are all over this mess.
Of course the Bush administration started the ball rolling after 9-11 with the Patriot Act, and as many of us predicted, it has been perverted from its original intent (to catch terrorists BEFORE they acted) into a runaway vehicle indiscriminately mowing down civil liberties all across the nation.
Rand Paul is on the forefront and this might be his best single message at this time. Others in the TEA party are on top of this issue but as usual the mainstream GOP is a little late to the game.
If the GOP wants to regain its status as the party of smaller government, more individual responsibility and the defender of liberty, then now is the time to grab this issue and claim it.
The NSA problem spells disaster for the democrats in the long run. Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country, and all good republicans to stand up for liberty.
When Barack Obama's uncle Onyango was arrested for DUI the POTUS claimed the two had never met. But the uncle told police that he was going to arrange bail through the White House and that the president had lived with him for a while. Obviously both couldn't have been telling the truth, so the press assumed that the uncle lied.
Well, now as it turns out, the drunk uncle has more credibility that the president of the United States.
President Obama acknowledged Thursday that he lived with his Kenyan uncle for a brief period in the 1980s while preparing to attend Harvard Law School, contradicting a statement more than two years ago that the White House had no record of the two ever meeting.
Their relationship came into question Tuesday at the deportation hearing of the president’s uncle, Onyango Obama, in Boston immigration court. His uncle had lived in the United States illegally since the 1970s and revealed for the first time in testimony that his famous nephew had stayed at his Cambridge apartment for about three weeks. At the time, Onyango Obama was here illegally and fighting deportation.
In November 2011, a White House spokesman told the Globe he had no record of the two ever meeting. The Washington Post had also reported that scholars believed the two had never met.
The White House never moved to correct the record, until the president’s fiercely private uncle took the witness stand in Boston immigration court two days ago. [Boston Globe]
After moving into a nursing home, an elderly woman’s 18-year-old grandson began staying at her house. He was home alone early one morning when he was awakened by a noise coming from a back room of the home. He grabbed a shotgun from under the sofa he was sleeping on and went to investigate. He spotted what looked like the light from a flashlight coming from behind a curtain covering a glass door. As the teen moved forward, the back door was kicked in and he was confronted by two burglars. The teenager fired several shots. One suspect fell to the ground with a fatal gunshot wound, while the other fled the scene. He was later found at a nearby hospital being treated for gunshot wounds. It was last reported that he was in critical condition. The teen staying at his grandmother’s home was not injured. (Houston Chronicle, Baytown, TX, 8/29/13)
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will now allow live streaming of its proceedings but the US Supreme Court is still reluctant to allow such public access. Judges and lawyers know that the vast amount of time in court rooms is spent on matters which the public would likely view as extremely mundane.
The drama of court proceedings as portrayed on television and in movies is a far cry from reality. And though the public would expect the Supreme Court to be debating important matters like gun rights, civil liberties and abortion as Justice Scalia observed, most of the time they are dealing "with ERISA, with patent law, with all sorts of dull stuff that only a lawyer could understand and perhaps get interested in." [POLITICO]
Today and tomorrow the Kentucky Bar Association will be holding its district bar meeting in Covington and while little of interest for the general public will likely be discussed we lawyers should be ever mindful that our sworn duty to defend the Constitution must be our first priority. Our focus must not be misdirected by the clamor of public opinion or political interests or the pursuit of an income. And neither must we willingly abandon this solemn obligation in order to pursue the desires of a particular client or to "go along to get along" with the winds blowing about within the bar.
I will be live blogging from the convention and will be looking to see if any of the discussions tend to encourage and renew the oaths we took or whether the convention will focus on the sorts of dull stuff that only a lawyer could understand.
Many of you know your right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures as protected by the Fourth Amendment. But did you know that while the government needs a warrant to open your mail or enter your office desk, that emails stored on a server for more than 180 days are unfettered by that restriction?
The law which at the time in the mid 1990's seemed to protect email users, now is outdated. The use of cloud computing and the storage of data on servers such as Carbonite, may expose all of your emails to legal snooping.
Modifications to the Electronic Communications Privacy Act are being supported on a bi-partisan basis. But these upgrades may not get the full attention of Congress unless you let them know how important they are to you.
A significant blast of very cold air coming in behind a warm and rainy weather pattern could produce a heavy accumulation of ice tonight causing widespread power outages repairs of which could be hampered by more freezing weather and snow which will fall on top of the ice on Friday, according to the weather service.
Areas to be affected are identified on the maps below. Those of us in the Ohio Valley will not be spared the ice and sleet but may only get a couple inches of snow. [Weather.com]
Nice to know that others are thinking the same things I am.
I told you recently that the democrats are going with a new "ism" in the ramp up to Hillary's run in 2016. They are replacing "racism" with "sexism". We've seen it tried already in Kentucky.
It is rewarding to see others now beginning to discern the same thing.
As NewsBusters reported Sunday, liberal cartoonist Ted Rall was recently banned from the progressive website Daily Kos for publishing a comic strip with Barack Obama in it that was deemed to be racist.
On Monday, Rall spoke with Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg about the incident, and warned that if Hillary Clinton gets the Democratic nomination for president in 2016, “sexism will be the new racism”
"If you look at the vast majority of people who came down on me, these are white Democrats, white guy Democrats who are just using this as an excuse," Rall added. "Get ready, because in 2016, if Hillary is the nominee, it’s just going to be sexism will be the new racism...It’s what you use when you don’t have anything."
Indeed it is, but Rall's right. Just as anyone that criticized Obama the past six-plus years was accused of racism, in the coming years, anyone that criticizes Hillary if she runs will be depicted as sexist. The so-called "Republican War on Women" will be dusted off again, and every utterance by an opponent or commentator that isn't flattering will be due to Clinton's lack of a Y-chromosome and not because of her views. [Newsbusters]
Remember the John Birch Society? Do you remember the people in Northern Kentucky who have been involved with them over the years? Do you see where those people are now and who they support for elective office? Wasn't there a day when being associated with the John Birch Society meant you were a dangerous extremist?
It has always been a well known fact that socialism and communism are systems that defraud ordinary citizens into believing that the government is "looking out for the worker/little guy" when in reality they are systems designed to enslave the "little guy" for the benefit of the ruling class and their friends.
Socialism and communism are perverted forms of governing by kings. Through the pretend elective process and the propaganda machines that those systems employ, socialism and communism fool citizens into believing that they are in control of government in contrast to the system of governing by kingship. The truth is that the rulers under socialism and communism acquire similar powers to kings, execute those powers by the same methods and end up with all the riches.
Here is how it works.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington.
Wednesday’s event will take place in Anacostia, a predominantly African-American section of Washington, D.C., with a high unemployment rate.
The event will be sponsored by the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank founded by former Clinton White House chief of staff John Podesta. [The Hill]
The fraud is worked by constantly convincing the "poor" and "threatened" with promises that your agenda, your plans for the future are designed to eliminate "income inequality". But what is the truth?
Furthermore, poverty in America is at the highest rate since the 1960's.
The number of Americans living in poverty has spiked to levels not seen since the mid 1960s, classing 20 per cent of the country’s children as poor. [Daily Mail]
And of course the number of people on food stamps is at an all time high.
So despite all the rhetoric coming out of the Obama administration, all the phony claims that he is going to end "income inequality" what we are really witnessing is socialism at work. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer and those in control and their buddies rake in all the goodies.
Pray for those who vote for these kind of people. They need enlightenment and wisdom as the fraud of socialism continues to fool more and more Americans.
