For years, I’ve been advocating the complete shutdown of the U.S. Department of Education. In the United States Constitution, funding of education is never mentioned or implied, but for 35 years federal government has been handing out cash to states and school systems in return for capitulating to prescribed standards and rules created by federal bureaucrats. Now President Obama wants to offer up “free” college education.
I watched only a few moments last night, and listened for a few more. It concerns me the president referenced Reagan and Bush 41 regulations and interpretations of laws* passed in Congress in comparison to his Executive Order that will completely ignore current law. But that’s not all conservatives are rightfully bitching about.
Again, if these votes were switching from Democrats to Republicans, all hell would be breaking loose. This time, we’re getting reports from Maryland. All we have left it seems is our vote. The process should be held in the highest regard, yet Democrats just don’t see it that way.
Central government planning. Un-checked federal government growth. The failed “war on poverty.” Social Security ponzi scheme. Outlandish Department of Agriculture rules and regulations. Appeasing the enemy.
For the life of me, I can not figure out why a review of traffic stop statistics could provide race-baiters with solid information showing cops are “illegally” racial profiling. Oh wait, I know. They can use the statistics collected – no matter how valid they are – to show a “disparity” they can use in a headline.
The government does not always have to “do something.” Emily Fedorko from Greenwich died in what can only be described as a terrible accident on the water Aug. 7. Emily and three teenage friends were in a motorboat on Long Island Sound enjoying the day when Emily died after coming in contact with a spinning propeller. Horrific. But as usual politicians are already discussing additional state regulations to limit the operation of motor vessels by kids on the water.
Here is Bill Whittle’s newest Firewall video. Whittle generally bats one thousand with these informative videos, and this one does not disappoint. It’s worth it to watch.
This was one of the Obama administration’s attacks on the firearm industry bypassing the normal legislative process. In-other-words, President Obama used his phone and pen to tell the Federal Insurance Deposit Corporation (FDIC) to put firearm dealers on a list of “high risk” businesses banks should avoid. Banking is heavily regulated by the federal government, and if banks wanted to stay “in good graces” with the feds, they were told they should “avoid those high risk businesses” or … well, you may have problems in the future.
On a pretty regular basis during the last few years, we’ve seen stories concerning “outrageous” student loan rates and “unbearably-high” student loan principal amounts. The target is almost always the evil private student loan industrial complex and the employers who just won’t pay these kids enough money to pay off their loans. Should they direct their disgust elsewhere?
The left and the Obama administration are “infuriated” by the idea women are not paid the same as men in the workplace. Of course, this is another manufactured crisis that allows Democrats and liberals to attack conservatives and Republicans. Make up stuff and point at the Republicans and blame them for the “problem.”
