    Further proof, if any were needed, that it can be fun to be a demagogue. Sigh.

    Among other things, Rep Junior needs to refresh his knowledge of the Constitution. Guess the first-day readback didn’t get the job done (was he even there?)

    Congress cannot amend the Constitution. Article 5 provides that if 2/3 of BOTH houses of Congress approve an amendment it would be sent to the states, and 3/4 of the states must ratify. This ain’t easy; remember the ERA? Otherwise the amendment process requires that 2/3 of the states petition Congress for a Constitutional Convention, or that Congress itself approve an amendment by special convention (that’s only happened once with the repeal of Prohibition in 1933).

    Who elected this clown anyway?

    Gosh! If Abraham Lincoln envisioned this would be the state of affairs down the track, he would have deported all these buggers when there would have been no one to question his decision at that time.
    Morgan said it well, ‘Who elected this clown’ and above all, who are the clowns who elected obama?

    Laughable! We’re headed down the road to disaster. What happened to us? We have a population of poor and poorer. This segment were for the most part not interested in public policy. So, that left the rest of us to tighten the slack and govern intelectually for a better and stronger Rebublic. America for the most part went to sleep, thinking that our way of life would be the same, day in and day out. The reasoning for the most part was, ” We are the greatest.” ” We are the strongest.” You know, “Our colors don’t run.” “We are the envy of the world” and so on and so on. While free America went to sleep the enemies within went to work. These people are smart and laid the trap we all fell into. I travel alot and have lived in many different states. I was shocked at our citizenry, many uninformed and didn’t vote. Our elected officials enjoyed not having to work. They grew grandiose,and believed for the most part that they were “all that.”

    Our social policies, at least over the last 50 years or so, have fostered an enormous sense of entitlement among people who have been the recipients of taxpayer-paid benefits.

    I knew members of my family and their friends who lived through the Depression. Their view of “welfare” was that it was something they needed for a short time to get them through the worst of it. They scorned the idea that “welfare” could or should be a lifestyle. But that is what it has become. We have created a permanent underclass of people who are told incessantly that they do not need to work or support themselves because government cash will always be there.

    This degrades these folks as human beings. Human beings are meant for productive work, not indolence and dependency. Every time a “liberal” like this speaks up for more largesse, more indolence, more dependency, he is enslaving and infantilizing the very people he purports to be “for”. When all is said and done, underlying all this nonsense is the view that in fact these folks CANNOT do for themselves, cannot learn how to make their own way, and therefore must have government do it for them.

    Conservatives promote human dignity; liberals thrive because they pander to human indignity.
