ALOHA, ALL!! Obama continues to rule by fiat. His blatant disregard for the United States Constitution and our process of government (legislative, judicial and executive) shows he cares only about promoting his leftist agenda by any means possible….even if it means breaking the law. His latest stunt of “shifting” immigration policy is a purely political move to gain votes in November. Obama himself admits it’s a temporary fix. It’s no secret that Obama really *hearts* Executive Orders and uses them to bypass Congress. So how many EOs has Obama signed? As of June 14, there were 128. They run the gamut from establishing a global development council to determining the order of succession in the Department of Justice (huh??) to establishing a Gulf Coast ecosystem task force. It’s astounding. Check this out: Current List of Obama’s Executive Orders and Is Obama’s Immigration Policy Unconstitutional?

OMG….Obama Must Go!!
Final Thought: “[T]o preserve the republican form and principles of our Constitution and cleave to the salutary distribution of powers which that [the Constitution] has established . . . are the two sheet anchors of our Union. If driven from either, we shall be in danger of foundering.” Thomas Jefferson, June 12, 1823

ALOHA, ALL!! Hubby reminded me that today is Bill of Rights Day. Following is an email he sent out to his contact list today. I thought HDR readers would benefit from it as well. (BTW….I changed all the capital “Os” in Barry’s name to zeros. So that’s my contribution.)
Fly your U.S. flag today! I’m sure that all know that the Bill of Rights are the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, ratified by the states and made part of the Constitution 220 years ago today in 1791. Understanding the Constitution is critical to understanding where our nation has been, where we might be headed and where 0bama fits into the mix. What still motivates obama is that obama, in his role as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago’s law school often liked to point out what he considered shortcomings to the Constitution, most notably that the Constitution was a charter of negative liberties (that is, restricting government) rather than (what he thought better as do all Marxist thinkers) a charter of “positive liberties,” IOW a list of things government is required to do for its people. One can think of 0bama’s “positive liberties” as financial and similar entitlements — a word much in play these days but was not even considered by the Founders who lived in a era where freedom was paramount in the context of a representative government [for a people previously oppressed by government (Britain)] with intentionally limited scope and powers over its citizens. This video is instructive regarding the fundamental rub between positive and negative liberties:
This article too: Archived-Articles: Negative Liberties and Obama Newspeak
Or listen to obama in his own words describe his fondness for what is (yeah, I know some of you don’t like the word) the Marxist principles he’d prefer be mandated by a “better” Constitution. (Oh, and you’ll get to see Senior Lecturer obama lecturing Joe Wurzelbacher at the end of the video.)
Similar arguments occur in 0bama’s second autobiography, The Audacity of Hope (a title he got from a Jeremiah “God-damn-America” Wright sermon, btw). Oh, and as an aside, have you read 0bama’s two quasi-autobiographies? The first is well written and easily read, the second is turgid, almost as if one or both where “ghosted” by someone else. But that’s another topic…. (thanks to Hubby for the post. Looking forward to his thoughts on this other topic.) 😉
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON – REMEMBER IN 2012!!
