With all the CHANGE that’s occurred since Big Guy was first immaculated, I think it’s about time for a new, post-modern Civics test:
1. Q. If a leader tells you “If you like your health care, you can keep your health care,” can you?
2. Q. If a leader doesn’t like the laws passed by the constitutionally empowered and democratically elected legislature, can he unilaterally decide to change them?
3. Q If a leader doesn’t agree with the ruling of the Supreme Court of the land, can he unilaterally choose not to enforce that decision?
4. Q. What do you call a leader like that?
a) DOTUS (dicktator of the United States)
f) Dear Leader
What is it, I wonder, about the rarified air up there that has all our civil servants sniffing around at it so often?
…and where did Big Guy get that nose anyway?
Butt I digress.
Allow me summarize the Supreme Court decision on the Arizona immigration law: You can enforce the part that mirrors the federal law (so far so good!) butt you can’t enact any statutes that mirror those laws (boo!). Oh, and by the way; don’t expect any more “help” from Aunt Janet, you’re on your own now, little missy.
So just grab a mop and clean up your own damn mess. The only good news for Arizona is that they are now free to hire illegal immigrants who will do the work for half the cost of out-of-work Americans.
That’s right, de facto amnesty, by default! I swear, I did not know that the preezy – even one who used to be a professor of constitutional law who taught the civil rights part of it - had that power. I guess one of us had better go back to school!
Impressive pro-active law circumvention! Especially considering that Big Guy’s going to have a lot more flexibility after the election. Ouch!
Anyway, this all brings to mind the age old question again about who do you want answering the phone when it rings at 3:00 A.M.? Apparently it’s a trick question; at least if you’re a citizen of the formerly sovereign state of Arizona because apparently we’re not taking your calls at all any more, regardless of the time of day.
I suppose they could try calling Hilz:
Or maybe they could try calling one of Big Guy’s cool friends for help:
Yeah, probably not. Wait! I think I have a bi-partisan solution! I know someone who will take the call.
When everything else fails, ask yourself: what would Jack Bauer do?.
Well, I’ve gotta run. I’m trying to figure out how to get a refund on the 3 bucks I paid for a chance to win dinner with the Wons. I failed to read the fine print, and according to the email I received yesterday from Team-Obama’s Toby Fallsgraff, staff are not eligible.
Since staff are
required “encouraged” to participate, we make up the largest group of people being fleeced contributors to the “Win a dinner with the Preezy and the Fleezy” sweepstakes pool. So if none of us are eligible, that explains what Toby meant when he told the rest of you that:
“I'm going to let you in on a secret: Your chances of winning Dinner with Barack (and Michelle) are MUCH better than you might think.”
So don’t waste any time: YOU could be the winner and have a special date night that’s this
creepy much fun, as Fausta reports!
