Contempt for the Constitution

***Obama's stomping his foot because those mean ol' Republicans won't give him the amnesty he wants, so he's threatening to do it by executive order. Congress, you better get your butts back to Washington and stop this psycho.

President Obama announced Monday that he is shifting more immigration enforcement agents to the border and will take broader executive actions to address the millions of immigrants living in the U.S illegally, acting unilaterally with prospects for legislation dead on Capitol Hill.
From the Rose Garden, Obama lamented a “year of obstruction” from Republicans, accusing conservative leaders of resisting immigration reform to please the Tea Party.

What a crybaby. Never mind that every poll shows the VAST majority of Americans DO NOT WANT amnesty. He doesn't care about the will of the people, he cares about socializing America.

Related: 90% of immigrants skip court appearances, 135,000 will go missing. Yeah, that's the spirit. We need lots more of these people here. Salt of the earth, they are.

Ninety percent of the mostly-teen illegal immigrants flooding over the Mexico-U.S. border won't show up for their immigration court hearing, meaning at least 135,000 of the youths will simply vanish into the country this year alone, according to a key House committee chairman.
House Judiciary Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who on Wednesday held a hearing to raise national security concerns about the new wave of illegals, revealed Thursday that many of the teens are placed with relatives, including parents who are in the U.S. illegally, and then ignore court orders to appear for immigration hearings.

Say anything about it and you're "anti-immigrant" or "racist" or some other such nonsense. I'm all for LEGAL immigration. If you're here illegally, I think you should be deported immediately. Period.

***Finally, a win for the Constitution!

The government cannot require closely held corporations to insure birth control in company health plans if it violates their religious beliefs, a divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday.
The 5-to-4 decision in the “Hobby Lobby” case is a political blow to the Obama administration, which had allowed nonprofit groups to avoid direct responsibility for Obamacare’s contraception mandate but held firm against for-profit owners who complained and filed suit.

 Great news. I'm so glad Hobby Lobby didn't fold.
This is a great day for religious freedom.
Image of the Hobby Lobby logoThe Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties cases is a much-anticipated and wonderful affirmation as the court process proceeds. It shows that religious freedom continues to be the lifeblood of a country founded on the inalienable rights afforded to us by our Creator.
We rejoice with the Green and Hahn families who are now free to continue serving the public, their loyal employees, and their God without having to compromise their faith.
These families’ stand for freedom benefits the many faith-based businesses faced with the same awful choice of deciding between their faith and livelihood. It also vindicates a higher principle, showing that government must tread carefully when it seeks to impose policies contrary to our most cherished rights.
Religious groups and business owners should not have to violate their faith in order to follow the law. It’s not the role of government to define what we believe or what our faith includes.
Fundamentally these cases were not about abortion or contraception: they were about whether government can require faith-based groups to violate deeply held beliefs.

One foggy night, a United States Aircraft Carrier was cruising off the coast of Newfoundland and the junior radar operator spotted a light in the gloom.  Here is a transcript of what happened next.
The radar operator worked out that a collision was likely unless the other vessel changed its course.  So he sent a radio message.
U.S. Aircraft Carrier Radar Officer:
'Please divert your course at least 7 degrees to the south to avoid a collision'.
Back came the reply: 'You must be joking, I recommend you divert your course instead'.
The U.S. Radar Officer referred the matter to his superior officer.  And reported the incident as insubordination.
As a result the Captain of the Air Craft Carrier sent a second message.  'I believe that I out rank you, and am giving you a direct order to divert your course now!!!'Lighthouse urban myth
Canadian Radio Operator:
'This is a lighthouse.  I suggest you take evasive action.'
