I am here to talk about a political cartoon in your newspaper. It was by Adam Zyglis posted on Aug. 2, 2013. It shows a Republican (represented by an elephant in a suit) saying “Practice makes perfect” while throwing a paper away in a garbage can that says “40th vote to repeal Obamacare,” and the lid to the trash is the Capitol building. At the bottom of the page it says, ”The art of doing Nothing.” This cartoon is showing how the government is falling apart and turning into garbage because of the huge disagreement in the congress, and how this all is going nowhere. I agree with what it is saying, and I think the government should come to some sort of an agreement on the law, or just have one side try to see the other side’s perspective instead of being blind on the whole picture.

What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.
A small group of elected officials in Congress is currently leading the effort to find common ground on a budget proposal to avoid a repeat of the federal government shutdown and prevent sequestration in the coming years.

Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.

Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation.
