You know this is a bad deal when the reason that politicians are giving for supporting it is based on extortion. How many politicians have we heard whining, "I don't want the bugs to leave. We have to pass this deal, the Bradley Center already has debt. I'm so sad."
Why is the deal that politicians are pushing upon the taxpayers of this state especially the city and County a bad deal? Here are a few reasons.
There's something unsettling about the way the Supreme Court justices are behaving here in Wisconsin. Time was, that judges were revered as being respectful pillars of the community. Even those who thought they hated lawyers respected judges. But as we know, respect has to be earned. And now, the justices of the Supreme Court are not doing a lot towards earning the honor that would be do them esteemed by their office.
Shirley Abrahamson is doing a lot to make a laughing stock out of the Supreme Court. Why she got reelected in 2009, I will not know. The main reason is that she was backed by liberals. She is the typical liberal-she feels an entitlement to the job and believes the will of the people who elected her in 2009, trump the will of the people who voted to change the Constitution in 2015. For over a century, the Chief Justice of the screen court in the state was based on seniority. But because Abrahamson has stayed beyond her effectiveness, the state had to go through a constitutional amendment to restore the office of Chief Justice to that of a jurist and not a tyrant.
It's a shame that a so-called public servant is working in our own self-interest to not only legislate from the bench but prohibit a smooth transition for the court and the people being served. Yes, it is important to serve, but it is also important to allow opportunity for others especially when you have exceeded your personal effectiveness. Life in its generosity or life in its cruelty allows people to hang on instead of exiting the office with dignity. With other politicians, the subject of term limits arises when the public believes someone has been in office for too long. Do we need to introduce this idea to the Supreme Court?
The Obama administration and their State Department are certainly thankful for Hillary the past two weeks. Hillary and her Scooby that have been the session of many of the mainstream news outlets which is been a welcome distraction for the Obama administration and their continued failure with foreign affairs.
President Obama believes that making a deal with the country of Iran for nuclear weapon limitations will enhance his legacy and cement his reputation as a successful president for school children to read about for generations to come. Sure, it's all about Obama. What about what's good for the country?
Normally, it may be a good idea for a president to work one-on-one with other nations that are not strong allies to develop good relations. Iran certainly cannot be trusted. They have proven time and again that they are not sharing a goal of normalization with United States. And although Congress is a cold equal branch of the government, can enough of them agree on a bill that will strengthen this relationship? Probably not. But president Obama is not being 100% honest with the American people either.
The president said in a news conference or to news outlets things that he wants the American people to believe are in this agreement with Iran. People like Senator Barbara boxer of California announced that the agreement was better than she had hoped for. However, the Iranian government came out and said about the opposite of what President Obama said. Of course, we would like to believe our president. But this is the same president who told us we could keep our doctors if we wanted to. We could keep our insurance policies if we wanted. Health insurance premiums were supposed to go down a $2500 per year per family. Obama care and the affordable care act are also the presidents signature accomplishments. But if you write about these, how can we believe him when trying to make a deal with the terrorist country?
The president is going about this like a person getting out of the Any car dealership and not wanting to leave until he has the best deal possible. And you know what a used car salesman would think. Is there a deal or not? But the bigger question is will it be a good deal for the United States? And the impact on the United States and how it will affect this country in the future should take precedence over the president merely trying to preserve his legacy.
Well, now we know. How many people were surprised by Sunday's announcement that Hillary Clinton will seek the nomination of the Democratic Party for the president of the United States? One thing we do know, the number is close to zero. Except for the low information voters.
With almost no sincerity, Hillary came out with her vision for America. Instead of attacking her would-be opponents, she decided it should all be about Hillary. Clinton is going to be the champion of the middle class. She's going to be about income equality. She's going to be about equal pay for equal work. Were I heard that before? Perhaps you Obama administration?
The issues of the 20 16th campaign are going to be the same as they were in 2012. In 2008. In 2000. In 1992. In 1972. There are no new ideas. There are no new issues. Every four years we elect a president who campaigned on solving certain issues. But the next election cycle, they're the same.
Hillary driving around the country in a van named Scooby is just ridiculous. How long does she think she can maintain the façade that shields above the fray and not the backstabbing muck rake her character assassin we have all grown to know over the past two decades. I'm sure the media will be helping her touting her as the real Hillary. Hillary will be Hillary. The real deal. But for anybody who is familiar with the Democrat rhetoric, you know that what is being said is about the opposite of what is actually being done.
Hillary and the Democrats believe Americans are so dumb all we have to do is lie to them enough and we will start to believe it as the truth. America is headed in the wrong direction. It's time to change course.
