This is my effort to share my thoughts with readers about concerns facing our country today.  I believe there is a good chance my grandchildren may be the first generation in the history of this great country not to have a better standard of living than their parents. If so, our generation is to blame. The clock is running out for damage control. .

Obama's Cowboy Administration

Washington, today, seems to decide which laws they follow and which they ignore. They don't play by the rules and they don't enforce the rules. It's like a Banana Republic. 

By which law did the White House depose the CEO of GM. Rick Wagoner was fired by the White House. And, the White House decided some board members had to go. There is no law anywhere in America that gives them the right to do that.

Congress passed a law to tax the bonuses of bailout companies at 90%. Illegal, unconstitutional and unprecedented. Except, of course, in jolly old England before the American Revolutionary War. 

Take over non FDIC corporations deemed in trouble by Geithner. Illegal.

Don't pay taxes. I've lost count on how many of the Obama team owed income taxes. Just another this week, the great former governor of Kansas, Kathleen Sibelius,  just overlooked $7,000 she needed to pay. She was the second one for that job who overlooked taxes. It's easier to remember who did pay taxes than who owed taxes.  

So, when it's convenient we overlook laws or take actions that are outside the law. Now, this week there was an incident where Janet Napolitano decided not to enforce a law. She would have been my first choice to do this trick. Miss Man Caused Disaster.

A raid in Washington State netted 32 illegals at a factory. Janet didn't like the way the raid went down. So, she released the 32 with work permits pending their testimony against the law enforcement officials who conducted the raid. There were 200 applicants for the 32 jobs, all U.S. citizens. A Taliban leader warned this week that there would soon be an attack on Washington. One that would top all others, per this chap. I'm sure Janet will release all of the perpetrators of any such heinous act just as quickly as she let the illegals go in Washington State. But, of course, if there is a Man Caused Disaster in Washington, D.C. Janet will be long gone. She will be the scapegoat for all the good people in the administration who are taking steps to enable such an act.

So, welcome to Honduras. We let out leaders do as they choose. No law of the land is meant for them. They can break any, not enforce any, and make up new ones as needed. Plus, taxes are for the common man.

I think you should get your facts straight and stop misleading your readers:

<<By which law did the White House depose the CEO of GM. Rick Wagoner was fired by the White House. And, the White House decided some board members had to go. There is no law anywhere in America that gives them the right to do that.>>
Nobody fired Rick Wagoner. He was asked to step down by a major investor in his company and he did. This is how things work in the boardroom. If your leadership has brought your company, hat-in-hand, to any entity (the US Gov't, a private equity firm, venture capital, whatever) begging for money to keep your company afloat, then that entity has a right to require changes before they invest in your company. Rick Wagoner could have said "no" when he was asked to step down. Of course, then the US Gov't wouldn't have written that huge check and GM would have been in bankruptcy court the next day.

<<Congress passed a law to tax the bonuses of bailout companies at 90%. Illegal, unconstitutional and unprecedented.>>
Congress has not passed any such thing. The House passed a bill to try and do this. No action has been taken in the Senate (and I doubt any will) and the President has indicated his opposition to said bill.

Finally, I'll make one editorial comment: It is clear that you are no fan of Napolitano since she seems to have been at odds with your hero, Sheriff Joe. But to suggest that she'd equate the acts of terrorists who would want to attack Washington and kill innocent people with the acts of a few illegal immigrants trying to eek out a living in Washington state is just silly. And to suggest that any government official in Washington is working to enable terrorist acts against our country is equally silly.

Chris:

So the U.S. Government bought shares in GM? I thought they were loaning money not buying shares. Get your facts straight. They broke the law. In Russia the government owned everything and make decisions like this too. It's nice that we have your comments and mine recorded. If we have a Man Caused Disaster because Janet is dismantiling our defenses, it will all be here in writing.
