Polticians are said to have big noses because air is free:

We are growing sick of all of them and their scandalous lies. Pat Quinn, the Democratic governor of Illinois, is running for re-election against Bruce Rauner, a self-made millionaire. Quinn is being investigated on two fronts. First his $56 million dollar plan to reduce crime, which he instituted just before his last election, is looking a lot like an outright cash for votes program which was key to getting him re-elected. The Feds are subpoenaing e-mails from all of his top people. This is how it started with the two recent governors who went to prison. Also, the state’s inspector general found a preponderance of friends and family of Quinn working for the transportation department. Working is a loose term, meaning on the payroll, but not working.

Quinn’s attack ads against Rauner–he’s rich.

Obama is going after corporations that move headquarters overseas to reduce the tax bill. The same Obama who gave $1.7 billion in bailout money to Delphi Automotive to prop up their customer, GM. Delphi was, at the time ,and still is, headquartered in the UK saving $110 million a year vs. being headquartered in Troy, Michigan, where the CEO goes to work. Now, Obama wants to go after Delphi and all the other corporations who use this tax inversion option that Congress provided them.

Ferguson, Missouri was once home to lots of manufacturing. But, we hate manufacturing in this country, so no more. It’s the home of unemployment and poverty. Do the haters of manufacturing get any blame for that?

Many of those haters of manufacturing know that sinners will burn in eternal flame, but they still slip over and hump the neighbor’s wife. Instant gratification vs. long-term consequence.  But, that same sleazeball belongs to the Sierra Club because it’s hep to do so. He is not really worried about the long-term effect on the world’s environment any more than he is about the hell fires. He just wants to be part of the” in” crowd. No matter that all  of this overkill is the core reason we have many of the social problems we have today. The state of Illinois has approved fracking which would create many jobs for the people across the state line from Ferguson. But, the aforementioned governor just can’t get it going.

Coal plants close and utility bills go up for the poor. It is estimated that 10,000 coal miners in this country are now unemployed.   Screw them, that’s what Obama says. Can’t move oil from Canada and North Dakota by pipeline and trains must move it at higher prices. Obama won’t approve the pipeline and is now trying to stop the trains. Higher gasoline prices for the poor, screw them, says Obama.

Black unemployment is at near record highs under Obama. He preaches to us about the injustices of Ferguson. From the golf course.

We pile regulation on regulation and lawsuit on lawsuit when progress is attempted from the local to the state to the national level. Nothing happens. We wonder why.

Fracking happens despite politicians. Businessmen find ways to do business despite politicians. When a rare businessman decides to run for office, like Romney or Rauner, we say no, we’d rather have inexperienced, unethical,  lazy people in those offices, like Quinn and Obama. Meanwhile polls show the country has serious buyer’s remorse about not electing Romney.  Wise up people.

Someday we will have another 9-11 here in this country. Despite all the efforts and all the money we have spent to avoid such a thing, we make too many mistakes. Obama has once again breached the treatment of captured terrorists under Bush and chastised him for those actions. We have a porous border. We have lazy, incompetent union employees manning the TSA. Test after test show how bad they really are. ISIS is recruiting here in the USA and we watch. They behead an American and tell us the are coming for each and every one of us. Our president takes a break from a round of golf to make another meaningless speech that says nothing.

This is a tongue-in-cheek response to a Canadian liberal who wrote letter after letter to the Canadian government regarding their treatment of captured Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. Maybe this is what it will take to stop the idea that we need to be kind to those who wish us serous harm.

National Defense Headquarters M Gen George R. Pearkes Bldg., 15 NT 101 Colonel By Drive Ottawa , ON K1A 0K2 Canada

Dear Concerned Citizen,

Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces, who were subsequently transferred to the Afghanistan Government and are currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.

Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were heard loud and clear here in Ottawa. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of National Defense, to be called ‘Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers’ program, or L.A.R.K. for short.

In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided, on a trial basis, to divert several terrorists and place them in homes of concerned citizens such as yourself, around the country, under those citizens personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.

Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud is your detainee, and is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. You will be pleased to know that we will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with your recommendations. Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his ‘attitudinal problem’ will help him overcome those character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling, however, we strongly recommend that you hire some assistant caretakers.

Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbours or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless in your opinion, this might offend him. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country.

Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually, since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him.

You also should know that he has shown violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I’m sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of ‘respecting his culture and religious beliefs’ as described in your letter.

You take good care of Ahmed and remember that we will try to have a counselor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to Canadian culture.

Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you.

Cordially, Gordon O’Connor Minister of National Defense

Ferguson, Missouri  has been at the top of the news for days now as protests break out over the shooting of an unarmed teen by a white policeman. This is a perceived injustice. A white policeman in a predominantly African-American community shoots a black teen in the street. Injustice or not, it’s always sad to see a young man die before his life really begins.  It brings to mind the song by Elvis from years ago.

This injustice, sad as it is, seems yet to be fully explained. A Grand Jury has been called together to do just that. Injustice does not justify greater injustice. Greater injustice as described by rioting, looting, shooting at police, throwing Molotov cocktails, burning, cursing police, throwing urine at police, etc.

Reverend Al Sharpton must think it does since he always appears at any tinder box like this and adds the spark it takes to light the fire. A Civil Rights leader, not by my standards. Ferguson is settling down as the media loses interest and moves on to New York where the young man died from a choke hold. The funeral was announced and Reverend Al announced the will be back to Ferguson and the media will rejoin him there to see if they can rev it up again.

While all of this went on there was a clear-cut injustice in Chicago. A nine year-old boy got mad at his Mom when she wouldn’t let him have a muffin. Mom was trying to follow the first lady’s advice on sweets. He stormed out of the house barefoot. Ten minutes later the police knocked on her door and advised her she needed to accompany them to the hospital. Her son had been shot 4 times execution-style and was dead. There is no policeman in this story. Nor is there an Al Sharpton. Nor will there be an Al Sharpton. You see this young man died at the hands of a gang-banger in the neighborhood and if one protests here they may be putting themselves or their family in jeopardy.

Two opportunities for righteous indignation. A police shooting, where there may or may not have been a policeman who was being threatened by a young man with marijuana in his system and a simple case where someone just killed an innocent 9 year-old who may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.  In the first case the media can’t get enough and a town is under siege. In the second, end of story.  You decide.
