The world is exploding. Our friend in the east, Israel, is engaged in a battle for survival. Let me correct that previous sentence. Israel was our friend in administrations past. This president leaves much doubt about what kind of friend he is to Israeli Prime
Also in that neck of the woods ISIS ( Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is marching thru the mid east killing Shia Muslims. Understand that the Sunni Muslims and Shia Muslims have been at war with each other for centuries so this is nothing new but ISIS hates the West( that would be us) and vows to destroy everything that we stand for. Oh and on a disturbing note they now have all kinds of weapons including chemical and biological weapons. Obama is really worried about this. He is at a fund raising dinner in Texas.
Here in America we have continued threats about gun control with the left screaming every time some idiot, and I mean that literally, takes his guns and shoots up a school, movie theater, etc. I am heartbroken at the loss of innocent life but NOT ENOUGHT to give up my right to bear arms. What I find strange is that over the 4th of July weekend Chicago was subjected to 84 shootings that left 68 wounded and 14 dead. Mayor Ralm Emanuel is enforcing strict gun laws but it doesn't seem to make a difference. What is being blamed is lack of police coverage, poverty, lack of jobs and universally lax gun laws. So if we take all the guns away from the average citizen then they will be safe from the criminals. Hummm, not sure that is going to work Ralm you need to call Barrack about the economy...he owns it now, its been 6 years and he cannot blame Bush anymore.
EPA now has the right that if you have a violation against one of their rules that they can garnish your wages without a court order. You can fight it but it will be at your expense. The EPA gets to pick the place for the court fight and the judge and you have to pay. So the EPA holds all the cards. It really is more extensive than that but if I go into it now I will never sleep.
On a final note for this blog, people are saying that the current immigration mess at the border is going to be his "Katrina". You progressive/liberals remember the screaming that commenced when Bush did a flyby to look over the damage that was left in the wake of Katrina. All because he didn't stop. They are saying that if Obama does not go down to look at the detention centers that this will be his Katrina. Huge difference here: Katrina was a natural disaster and if I recall correctly the decision was made for Bush to be able to see the area but not be subjected to the unsafe situation. The current "humanitarian crisis" is a disaster but one that was caused by his failed policies and lack of leadership. But if you heard his speech tonight it of course is not his fault. The fault lies with Congress. Poor Barrack. He stated that he did not want to go down for a photo op. What he really means is that he is trying very hard to distance himself from the issue and if he goes he cannot ignore what is happening. We have been "blessed" with a president who has diminished us as a country, he cannot lead, he has no real policy, he has made enemies out of friends. He has allowed criminal behavior to go unpunished in his administration. I have an African-American friend who brightened my day about a week ago. She told me "I should have never voted for that SOB". We have another 2 years. God help us all.
