Not having served as a member of law enforcement or the judiciary, I am not conversant with exactly how the law is supposed to be enforced, so perhaps one of the individuals who may be apprehended while robbing or looting someoneâs business establishment as a means of protest (for something or other) would be able to answer that question. Are police only supposed to enforce those laws that the neighborhood says are in agreement with the local âcodeâ? Only a certain type of crime or criminal should be apprehended and only in accordance with the âhomeyâsâ assessment of his guilt?
President Obama just made a speech in which he plans to essentially grant amnesty to theÂ poor, unfortunate, illegal aliensÂ who have flooded across our borders. Government funds are going to be made available to assist them in the resettlement process.
Admittedly, I am not a history major; however, I seem to remember something about the American colonies taking exception to being ruled by executive orders. In fact, if Iâm not mistaken, they spent a great deal of time, effort, expense and human life to ensure that they would be free from the continuation of such actions. They wrote a document called the Declaration of Independence and followed it up with another called the Constitution of the United States, whereby they specifically articulated their refusal to be governed by executive orders. Of course, back in the day they were not called âexecutive orders,â they were called the âkingâs commandsâ and, like todayâs âexecutive orders,â had the power of law.
Republicans now control the Senate and the House. President Obama must work with this reconstituted Congress or resort to executive action, exactly the sort of thing the founders outlawed with the establishment of our republic. It must be remembered that the Founding Fathers knew full well the dangers of independent action being taken by one individual in the seat of authority.
Apparently, Ebola may initially have been contacted and spread as a result of âhandlingÂ bushmeatÂ (wild animals hunted for food) and contact with infected bats. The first EVD outbreaks apparently occurred in remote villages in Central Africa. Only mammals (for example, humans, bats, monkeys, and apes) have shown the ability to become infected with, and spread, the Ebola virus.âAccording theÂ latest info from the CDC, âthere is no evidence that mosquitoes or other insects can transmit Ebola virus.â
Depending on where one lives, the headlines in the local (and some national) news recently would have featured various commentaries and reports on the following: âNumerous protests have been held since the Aug. 9 killing of Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson. Tensions escalated last week after a white officer in St. Louis shot and killed another 18-year-old black man, Vonderrit Myers Jr., last Wednesdayâ (Reuters).
If you are a black born prior to 1950, you have seen, and probably experienced, some of the aforementioned activities, especially if you were born in the South. Blacks marched, sued in court and protested for the right to achieve civil rights and exercise the civil liberties now freely available to any and all who live and work in the America of 2014. Homosexuals can register for any hotel and eat at any restaurant, etc. Homosexuals are perfectly free to exercise any and all constitutionally guaranteed rights in the U.S,
Blacks have been misled, mostly the by the left-leaning media and black leadership rhetoric, to believe that the Democratic Party, from FDR to LBJ, has enabled giant strides for black voters via civil-rights legislation. The Democrats are purposely credited with all the civil-rights victories accorded blacks.
As many of you are aware, there is a plan or movement (call it what you will) to remove every trace, every vestige of Christianity and the influence of the Judeo-Christian God from American history and from the modern political landscape. The problem is, these principles are the basis for most, if not all, of our constitutional liberties.
I hate to sound like a recording glitch, but on several occasions I have attempted to point out that the people with whom we are in conflict in the Middle East donât think like we think. The most dramatic evidence of this was the recent beheading of two journalists by ISIS, or ISIL, (whatever the current label) terrorists. Make no mistake, these are not patriots, freedom fighters or defenders of liberty; they areÂ terrorists, pure and simple.
