For The Children of Illegals (Dreamers) It’s About ROI!

First let’s clarify exactly who we are talking about. The Dreamers are children who are reaching the age of Majority (18 years old) or have already passed it. They were brought to the USA illegally by their parents when they were small children. They did not commit a crime themselves since the incident occurred before they were of the age to give consent to the actions, it is their parents who committed the crime. The Dreamers do not include the recent flood of children crossing the border by invitation from the Obama Administration.

The Dreamers have lived in the USA for almost their entire life. The speak English, and attended American Public Schools. They were the beneficiaries of welfare assistance, food stamps, and medical treatment.

We Americans through various levels of Government Programs and taxations paid for these things for these children. We have about $250,000 invested in each of these children. We need to make sure that these Dreamers become tax paying citizens thankful for the opportunity.

There are a lot of facets to immigration reform, it needs better security of our borders but it also has to be compassionate and flexible to accommodate the exceptions. My personal take is the current situation is more about failed American foreign policies than anything else but that is another discussion for another day.

Issuing sweeping statements that indicts everyone without an official USA citizenship card, and threatening to implement across the board punitive measures is not an answer to this complex issue. In fact it makes the politicians that don’t acknowledge that this is a complex issue look like knuckle dragging trolls!

People will show all kinds of bravado when in a crowd but behind the voter curtain is a whole different environment. Politicians with draconian immigration solutions will lose in a general election.

Ferguson Follies 

The freak show in Ferguson MO. has finally died down. The race whores and instigators have slunk off looking for a new venue to get “screen time” from the Media. They will return once the Grand Jury releases its findings.

The looters and rioters have returned home with their loot, looking to use it up or sell it off. This is a tough time of month for those awaiting the monthly money delivery from Uncle Sam, a couple of 31 day month’s wreaks havoc on a budget.

In the meantime the Black/White relations have taken another major step backward. The blacks because this proves they are right the police really do discriminate and punish Blacks. The Whites just tsk tsk look we are right, the Black community is all for protecting criminals both the dead kid who was blatantly disobeying the laws of the land and the follow up riots and looting proved the Black community supports criminal activity.

In reality, the facts bear out a slightly different tale.

For the Blacks that marched peacefully, to protest the treatment of the youth as well as the way the initial investigation began, they lost out. Their message was drowned out by the rioters and race whores who took the fight away from them.

For the police 99.9% of all attempts to arrest end peacefully. No violence stems from these instances. The police are actually on the losing end of most violence, over 500 police officers have been killed over the past 10 years. Over 500,000 police officers have been injured during those 0.1% of arrests that end in violence.

As for them targeting the Blacks in a community made up of over 60% blacks such as Ferguson MO it would appear to be a prejudice against blacks especially since Ferguson Police Force has no Black officers. However if you go to a predominantly White or Hispanic community you will be able to find many folks who will claim the local police pick on them and harass them up to and including physical violence.

The real key to who gets harassed isn’t the color of the skin it is the socio-economic standing of the person. If the person looks and acts like a gangster they get treated like a gangster by the police.

The comedian Chris Rock has a video out that sums all this up pretty well!

Hobby Lobby Decision Because You Don’t Own Your HealthCare!

The Supreme’s did an excellent job on the Hobby Lobby case, sticking to constitutional principles. There is never a good reason for the Government to force a person to purchase for someone else a product that they consider repugnant and a violation of their religious definition of life!

However the problem is/should have been easily solved. Unfortunately Obamacare, in 22000 plus pages made no attempt to fix the basic fundamental flaw in our healthcare insurance system. Ownership of the policies is by a third party, your employer or the government and not you!

Home and auto insurance works fine with each state regulating it for the protection of their citizens. People own their policies and can easily switch to another carrier.

The solution is so simple, everyone owns and manages their own Healthcare account. Employers and other entitlement benefit dispensers make your benefit deposits to your account. You select an insurance plan you want from the state approved insurance plans. The insurance companies make an automatic monthly withdrawal from your account to cover your premiums. You can also deposit money into this account at any time or on a set schedule. The excess in your account can be withdrawn by State certified companies that provide healthcare services such as doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, or other approved providers. When you die any remaining funds are deposited into the beneficiary’s healthcare accounts as designated by you.

Open Party Primaries or Letting the Yankee's Choose the Draft Picks For The Red Sox!

Crossover voters! It's come up a few times during the primary election cycles in various states. It was credited as one of the potential reasons for the failure of Rep Eric Cantor to win re-election as the Republican Candidate. It is being credited as one of the reasons that US Senator Thad Cochran will be the Republican candidate for Senate from Mississippi.

I've complained about this same thing happenning in NH. Undeclared voters who lean one way choose the ballot of the party they do not favor so they can vote for the candidate they think will be easiest to beat in the general elections!

These are Party Primaries to select the candidate that best fits the current membership of the parties. Allowing this crossover voting completely voids the idea that these are the best fit candidates that win.

If you are not a member of the Party at least 60 days prior to the election you should not be allowed to select that parties ballot period. You should also have to wait at least 60 days after an election before you can rescind your party selection.

However I am looking forward to the 2016 primaries. I will be relinquishing my party affiliation for the opportunity to select a Democrat ballot in 2016. I think Joe Biden will be a wonderful candidate for the Democratic party in the 2016 Presidential election. Although I still like John Edwards alot, as he truly reflects the ethics and morals of the Democratic Party!
