It’s going to be a long week. Heck,. it’s only Monday and already Dave is both ticked off and nervous as all get out.
Once again, either our values are that we support and uphold the Constitution, or we don’t. There is NO middle ground. You cannot support and uphold the parts you like and ignore the ones that your “feelings” or your “polls show people want something else” parts. It’s all or nothing folks, and when Conservatives, particularly leaders, continue to post memes and articles that undermine the Constitution – regardless of how they feel about the subject at hand or how “right” it may be – then they are no different than those with whom they disagree. And worse, instead of teaching and instilling Constitutional values in the rest of us, they are creating a leaning environment in which we are taught to ignore and really, not even look at the Constitution to “see if these things are true.”
Can the States refuse to take Immigrants or Refugees?
Did Valarie JARRET say she loved Islam and hates America in her 1977 Stanford yearbook?
Did DiFi say that women cannot protect themselves with “death machines?
How come we are not all dead from the Ebola?
These are just examples of a deeper problem that really isn’t unlike the same problem that Christianity has with televangelists: Which is more important, the Man or the Ideas?
If you chose the man, you choose…. poorly.
Frank Carson is told that he cannot continue to represent a murderer in court while he is still in jail. It’s just more of the circus atmosphere that Carson is both cultivating and wants to create around his own murder case.
There has been a great deal of discussion about the Anchor Baby rules, which is good. The bad part is that some people, among them leading Talk Radio hosts, are being either intentionally misleading or they are flat out ignorant. If it’s the latter, then they need to be set straight. If it’s the former – and it is – don’t you have to ask yourself why they are being intentionally misleading? At least one national Chat Show Host keeps claiming that the Supreme Court “has never considered” birthright citizenship. This is untrue, as anybody with a research staff and computer can see for themselves.
Modesto has a Homeless problem, so does your city. Modesto also had a Blue Ribbon Commission to find solutions to the problem. So does your city. Of course, that was five years ago, and nothing has changed. Why not? Because the solutions to the problem won’t work. Modesto wants more money to provide “Safer Neighborhoods,” presumably to include less homeless at the parks, and a Judge says that Measure G can go ahead because even if it is bogus it’s too late to get changes to the printer.
