DONATING TO A NONPROFIT IS NOT THE SAME AS HELPING THE HOMELESS!

By Max R. Weller

I have NO respect for cowards who either hide behind masks or use screen names on websites for the sole purpose of hiding their identities, as they spew lies and slanders against others:

Those who enable or give “moral” support to these individuals aren’t much better than the spineless jellyfish themselves.

The Washington Post’s Fact Checker has this to offer: Obama’s royal flip-flop on using executive action on illegal immigration. I think it’s a good thing, sometimes, to change your mind about issues like immigration; but, it’s never wise to lie about such flip-flops if you’re the POTUS and people are paying attention. BTW, I AGREE with President Obama’s previous position. It’s true, Republican presidents in the past have used executive orders in dealing with immigration. However, considering how the issue has gotten more troublesome over the course of the past decades, it ought to be obvious to everyone that the POTUS can’t solve the issue on his own.

48% of those surveyed in this NBC-WSJ poll are opposed to President Obama’s proposed executive action on immigration, 38% favor it, and 14% are undecided. What’s interesting is that at least 57% favor finding a way for undocumented immigrants to become citizens. Include me in this latter group. After all, when my paternal ancestors from Germany arrived here in the 1700s, and likewise my maternal ancestors in the 1840s, there were no rules and no bureaucracy to impede their dreams of a better life in America.

Obama is clueless, once again, by picking a fight with Congress when he could work with them, instead, and enjoy the support of a majority of Americans. The Obamabots will probably label everyone against an executive order in this case as a “xenophobe” — which is untrue. It’s apparently all the Dems know how to do.

I daresay the Obamabots will NOT be bothered by their hero’s flip-flop on immigration, or anything else for that matter. They seem to have acquiesced in the Bush/Obama Great Recession, as well as endless wars overseas. To them, it’s all about Obama the man — issues of the day are irrelevant, and a distraction to worship of their idol.

The rest of us try to think for ourselves.

Have you seen panhandlers “flying a sign” like the one below?

No hay dinero para los borrachos, por favor.

That’s all for now, folks. (*No money for drunks, please.)
