Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist.

I don’t like most Executive Orders. I certainly don’t like the growing abuse of using an Executive Order to circumvent the Legislature and upturn the delicate balance of power. The very balance of power that protects our country from a single person in the White House. When Obama started using Executive Orders to get what he wanted, I was concerned.

When I voiced my concern to liberals I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist.”

When I voiced by concern over his threat to use his pen and his phone I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist. He’s your President.”

When I voiced my concern over the large number of Executive Orders I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist. He’s getting things done.”

When I voiced my concern over his continued use of Executive Orders I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist. He has every right to do this as President.”

When I voiced my concern that the delicate balance of power was broken when Obama was “making” the laws instead of the Legislature “passing” the laws I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist.  He wouldn’t have to do this if the Legislature would help him get this done.”

When I said this was an abuse of power I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist. Bush did it, too.”

When I said it was wrong when any President abused this power I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist. You’re only saying this because you don’t like this President.”

When I said Bush shouldn’t have done this either I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist. You’re lying because you hate what Obama’s doing.”

When I said NO PRESIDENT should use Executive Orders for anything except the most exigent circumstances I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”

When I asked how the liberals would feel when the pen and phone were in another person’s hand I was told, “Sit down. Shut up. You’re a racist.”

Now, the pen and the phone are in another person’s hand and the liberals are suddenly outraged over the “abuse” of Executive Orders.

Don’t say I didn’t try to warn them.

 

“Free” College Isn’t Free

Liberals and other slow thinkers are all a twitter about the idea of “free” college. Unfortunately, they have no clue how things actually work in the real world.  People like Sanders are the adult versions of the kids who ran for class president promising free candy, ice cream for lunch, and no more homework.

Here is a very quick explanation about why “free” college isn’t really free.

Would someone please tell Michelle Obama to stop talking about school lunches until her kids eat like the kids at government run schools?

I am so tired of Michelle Obama’s school lunch preaching. All across this country kids and parents are complaining.  Federal food standards for government run schools are a horrible disaster.  When her kids eat the same lousy foods my kids get served, then I might care to listen to what she has to say.  I decided to compare five days of lunches at A) my kids’ government run school where I pay a ton in school taxes and that doesn’t even cover their lunch and B) the swanky, posh private school where the Obama girls go to get educated (when they’re not traipsing with their mom on swanky, posh vacations).  On a side note, I can’t have my kids out of school more than five days per school year w/out being threatened with legal action; how do they get away with all those vacations? Never mind. Liberals play by different rules than the rest of us. If nothing more, my kids’ Common Core-based curriculum has reconfirmed to me that everything is relative in their world. But I digress . . . here, for your comparison, are the lunch menus.  Talk about inequality!
