Lois Lerner and John Koskinen of the IRS could be in serious trouble. Investigators have found some 32,000 missing e-mails which were reported to a congressional committee as irretrievably lost. “Hard drive crash, erased, gone forever,” those kinds of reasons and excuses. Well, as anyone with a modicum of knowledge of computers knows, emails are never gone forever. They are always somewhere. You just have to find them; and they did. Time will tell what is contained in those emails, but it will probably not be good news for Lerner and Koskinen or their unnamed co-conspirators. Criminal charges and penalties are a very real possibility regardless of how high up it goes.
The University of Minnesota has decided, in its politically correct wisdom, that persons suspected of crimes at the school cannot be identified by their race. They claim it would further stereotype young black men. I wonder if they can be identified by gender. Isn’t that also stereotyping? Be on the lookout for someone somewhere who may or may not have committed a crime/misdemeanor/indiscretion. The individual could be dangerous. That should make it easy to find them.
A federal judge in Texas has stayed the Obama amnesty order. Twenty-six states have sued to stop the amnesty order and a federal judge in Texas has given them temporary relief. Of course the administration has fought back and filed an appeal. The best estimate is that it will take some two years to get to court to decide on the legality of the order, because no doubt the Supreme Court will ultimately have to rule. By then Obama will be gone and his order will be basically invalid. Presidents need to understand that they have to obey the law just like everyone else. Presidents don’t make laws; their job is to see that the laws are faithfully enforced. Congress makes the laws. It’s written in the Constitution. Perhaps the president should read the document sometime.
Do you think the Department of Homeland Security won’t be funded? Do you think federal workers will work and not receive paychecks? Me neither. The silly little games our elected representatives play is really getting tiresome.
How about that Keystone Pipeline? The president has vetoed the bill which was overwhelmingly approved by both Houses of Congress in a bipartisan vote. The bill will now be reheard as Congress tries to override the veto. Every single individual who fails to vote with the majority and override this veto will have to find a new job after the next election. The American people are not going to look too kindly on elected representatives who defy the will of the people. Warren Buffett and his railroad will find something else besides oil to carry. Buffett, as always, will land on his feet.
So, Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin doesn’t have a college degree. I have personally known hundreds of people with advanced degrees from prestigious universities who could not shine Walker’s shoes. For the most part, college degrees are highly overrated and definitely overpriced. Many colleges and universities have become nothing more than liberal laboratories. I’d prefer real-world experience.
We have serious problems in the world today. Contrary to what Secretary of State John Kerry recently said, we are not safer than we have been in years. We need serious people who have their heads in the game, not in the sand. We need to be ready to face headlong those whose only reason for living is to eliminate us. This mess is not going to fix itself.
