Another day on Planet Bizarro...the multi-millionaire Senate majority leader Harry Reid is now referring to illegal immigrants as Americans! The multi-millionaire House majority leader Nancy Pelosi believes that welfare and food stamps actually STIMULATE the economy! The multi-millionaire President of these United States, Barack Hussein Obama, has continuously vilified the Bush-era tax policies...but now believes that they will stimulate the economy and create jobs! Like the old STAR TREK episode featuring a parallel universe populated with our goateed evil twins, I keep waiting to see the facial hair appear on everyone, then I check the mirror to see if a goatee has appeared on MY face...nope!
In this lame-duck portion of the 111th Congress, the very people that we voted out are desperately trying for one last "SCREW YOU, AMERICA" with some pretty critical issues. We have (mostly) heterosexual and vehemently anti-military legislators voting to force the majority of our military to accept a perverse lifestyle that a minority of them have chosen. We have legislators voting on a nuclear weapons treaty while allowing two of the most unstable regimes on the planet to develop the means necessary to produce them! We have the same legislators who refused to pass a budget at the start of the current fiscal year NOW trying to cram through another deficit-buster to govern the spending of the NEXT Congress.
At the start of each new Congress in January of every odd-numbered year, the entire House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate take this oath: "I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."
It seems to me that any of our elected lawmakers who refuse to enforce Federal immigration laws and/or wish to create a new and shorter "path to citizenship" for these lawbreakers are guilty of violating their oath of office and should be criminally indicted for the same.
