Things stir beyond the frontiers. If we are not to swirl down history’s drain while singing We Shall Overcome, perhaps we should begin again to pay attention to ability. It is one thing, and a good thing, to insist on equality of opportunity. Them as can cut the mustard should have access to mustard. But affirmative action, meaning the hiring of those who would not be hired on their merit, lowers competitiveness in a world that is not going to cut the US any slack. White European males have been far away and gone the world’s most bounteous fountains of the sciences. Maybe we should keep them, even encourage them. The deliberate enstupidation of the schools to favor the unable, to make those who can’t or won’t look as if they could or have, is auto-Kevoirkian governance.
If those who detest white European males can do better, they should. Show me. I am waiting. Meanwhile, let them eat goose who do not like golden eggs.

Will the Lone Star state turn blue in 2012?
In the poll’s match-ups, President Barack Obama loses Texas to every notable Republican except Perry and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If the ballot came down to Perry and Obama, 47 percent of poll respondents said they would vote for Obama. Forty-five percent said they would cast a ballot for Perry.

The appeals court ruled today in favor of Obama’s “health reform”
The court said Affordable Care Act is a ‘valid exercise’ of congressional power.
Here’s all you need to know. The United States of America is hanging by a thread. If this abomination of a law is upheld by the Supreme Court, several state legislators will defend the constitutional right of their citizens. The gravity of the decision to come by the Supreme Court cannot be mitigated. If this law stands, there will be secession – and the Keynesian Kenyan will likely not leave well enough alone. Since he came here to destroy this country from the day he popped out of nowhere, he would no doubt declare war on the more virtuous half of this land that should be called the GFSA (God Fearing States of America).
If this saboteur wins re-election in 2012 and has his way with this nation for another four years, following is a projection of what the intellectually indolent media will be saying :
“Look at the parallels between Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln… He’s a second coming of Lincoln, from Illinois, he announced his candidacy in front of the state house where Lincoln served, he campaigned in front of Lincoln images in 2007, he served the same menu at his inauguration, was sworn in on Lincoln’s Bible… AND NOW – he presides over America’s SECOND CIVIL WAR…”
But the leftist sycophants won’t be explaining that this man deliberately instigated and picked at every wound, sowed discord in every fathomable way and deliberately CAUSED the WAR!
His administration has methodically divided this nation day by day, step by step.
This corrupt regime is suing a litany of Border States for simply enforcing the federal laws for which this centralized government was constitutionally chartered – protecting the borders.
They are forcing the states to sue them for forcing citizens to participate in his Marxist healthcare scam. In a time of multiple wars he has forced the legal approbation of homosexuality within all branches of the military.
This Trojan horse is not content to stop there as his administration now seeks to promulgate homosexual “marriage” within the ranks of the military and indoctrinating our soldiers sowing discord in the midst of their engagements.
They are now spitting in the faces of grieving families as they fight to prohibit the use of the word God or Jesus at military funerals of our fallen soldiers (as we have seen this very week in the news).
This administration has worked tirelessly to prevent the enemy combatants from being tried at military tribunals, instead granting these terrorists “constitutional rights” in our own judicial system – rights of a constitution these enemies themselves abhor and are fighting to destroy!
And today, on the same day this federal court upheld this effrontery against our nation, Obama castigated our congress for attempting to save this nation from bankruptcy, demanding like a petulant child that they RAISE taxes in order to codify what will be the death knell to our economy.
This man who was raised by leftists in a disfunctional family, despising every principle upon which this great nation was founded is like a culmination of all our national sins, embodied in one very real individual. He has a plan for America and it makes fictional stories like The Manchurian read like Disney.
An organization that represents the 75 percent of American citizens who want more control over illegal immigration is calling for the impeachment of Barack Obama over his involvement in the transfer of weapons to Mexican drug lords and his efforts to provide amnesty to illegal aliens.
“President Obama is no longer the legitimate president of the United States,” said William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, in calling for the action today.
“By arming drug and human smugglers with assault weapons that have been used to kill American and Mexican citizens and police forces, and by ordering amnesty for illegal aliens which has been rejected by both the Congress and the American public more than eight times, Obama has committed a form of treason against the United States and must be removed from office by Congress,” he said.
