The Homeland Security Department is preparing to shutdown on Feb. 27 because the Senate cannot/will not pass a blackmail peace of legislation meant to stop President Obama's immigration executive order. According to the NY Times: "John A. Boehner, has signaled that he is prepared to let financing for the agency lapse if the Senate remains unable to pass the spending bill that the House sent over last month. That bill, in addition to funding the agency, would gut the president’s legal protections for as many as five million undocumented immigrants, including children."
Thirty thousand people in the department will be furloughed and many operations will have to cease. This is Republican governance. The trolls in Congress would rather cater to the white supremacist base than ensure the safety of all Americans, enforces border activities, fight terrorism, and pay the hardworking people that work there.
This is governance by idiots who have no ability to propose meaningful legislation but can spend tax payers' money voting to repeal the ACA fifty odd times. This is what happens when the intellectually challenged vote for frauds, liars, racists, and thieves. The phrase American Exceptionalism is beginning to mean more and more American stupidity, what a shame.
America's next presidential election is about eighteen months away and we are saddled with a collection of charlatans, liars, idiots, religious frauds, racists, trolls, and middle-of-the-road do nothings. Is this the best that America can produce from its two political parties. Really! Why would vote for Scott Walker, a white collar criminal who grovels before the neo-facists Koch Brothers. Walker, a man who has basically destroyed a great state's educational system, unions, environment, and its future. Or there is the religious fraud Mike Hucklabe who prides himself in telling other people how they should live while enriching himself at the expense of the idiots who believe the bible is a real history to live by.
Then there is Chris Christie, the criminal governor from New Jersey, who will pander to anyone with a dollar pointed his way. And then there is the famous Dr. Ben Carson who has embraced racism as the solution to problems of the Black community. This Uncle Tom who has benefited from the sacrifices of Black people believes that President Obama is hurting the Black community.
Lastly there is Hillary Clinton who has never met a Wall Street banker she didn't like. A fence-riding Democrat who promotes fracking and is silent on Keystone. A democrat in name only is Hillary Clinton and unfortunately will win the nomination to run against the Republican clowns described above. You mean to tell me that this is the best that we can do for candidates to be the leader of the so-called free world?
After President Obama' State of the Union speech it was amazing to see the reactions generated from the Republican( aka White Supremacist Part) side of the aisle. You know the side that preaches/practices "voodoo economics" and and claims to be the party of opportunity. Here is one prime example from Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.) when asked about a DACA student who worked her way thru college while helping support her family: "she is a “problem” and should have been arrested."
Mr Brooks lacked the humanity to praise the girl for her accomplishments and hard work. All Mr. Brooks could see was her Latino appearance; knew that she had benefited from Obama's policies; and those two things were enough for him to disrespect her as a human being and as someone
