As humorous as this sounds.....every last word of it is absolutely TRUE!
1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to uninsure the insured.
2. Next, we require the newly uninsured to be re-insured.
3. To re-insure the newly uninsured, they are required to pay extra charge s to be re-insured.
4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became uninsured, and
then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original uninsured can be insured,
which will be free of charge to them.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is called “redistribution of wealth” … or, by its more common name, SOCIALISM.
Press reports indicate that President Obama plans to issue an order that will effectively legalize millions of illegal aliens. Doing so would be unjust, costly and will encourage more illegal immigration.
If early press reports turn out to be accurate as to who is covered by the order, the order will also be much different than the earlier Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty. DACA provided legalization for illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children. According to DHS, approximately 550,000 individuals had their DACA applications approved by March of 2014.
A new administrative amnesty would not really change the situation on the ground. The Obama administration has already made clear it is going to focus on convicted felons and more or less not enforce the law regarding deportations with respect to everyone else.
Not enforcing the law is unjust. It is unjust to those who follow the law and voluntarily leave when their visas expire or do not come to the United States because they are unauthorized. There are millions of people like this in Mexico alone. Not enforcing the laws forfeits government’s primary responsibility to establish justice.
Issuing an order that purports to be using prosecutorial discretion, like the DACA memo of June 2012 did, will not really change the threat of deportation, since there is essentially no threat of deportation now. Essentially such an order would formalize current policy and reward those who broke the law. The message to the rest of the world will be that the United States, officially, has said it will not enforce its immigration laws except for those who commit certain other crimes.
Part of the reasoning for DACA was that the grantees of amnesty were “innocent young children,” in the words of the president. Press Secretary Jay Carney said, “This administration has taken [steps] to help so-called DREAMers … individuals in this country, through no fault of their own.” The logic of such an order was, in part, that these individuals did not do anything wrong so they should not be punished. That rationale is not present for the parents of DREAMers or the parents of U.S. citizens. These potential grantees of amnesty knowingly broke the law and entered or stayed in the country illegally. An amnesty for them would signal to other future illegal immigrants that the way to a future amnesty is to bring children along or give birth to them in the United States. This would incentivize wrongful behavior – endangering children or incentivizing pregnancy to use the children as a means to stay in the United States.
An amnesty for those who knowingly entered the United States is unjust – rewarding illegal behavior and incentivizing more of that behavior. The president should not expand his administrative amnesty.
Derrick Morgan, The Heritage Foundation:
A taxpayer-funded educational group overseen in part by the State Department has been arranging meetings between journalists and the Nation of Islam, a radical religious group that has been condemned by human rights groups for its “deeply bigoted language” against Jews, homosexuals, and white people.
The East-West Center, a taxpayer-funded educational organization that seeks to improve relations between the United States and nations in Asia and the Pacific, has organized meetings between journalists and the Nation of Islam in past years and intends to do so again this year in Washington, D.C., according to emails sent by the group to an area think tank and obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
Participants in the East-West Center’s senior journalists seminar—just one of 15 journalism fellowships in which reporters from America and majority-Muslim nations spend 21 days meeting with U.S. government officials and others—are scheduled to meet with a Nation of Islam leader this month when the reporters are in D.C.
The Nation of Islam is just one of several “illustrious individuals and organizations” that reporters will associate with during the East-West Center’s seminar, according to an email sent by a representative of the group to a top official at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a conservative think-tank.
The East-West Center, which was established by Congress in 1960 and was allocated $16.7 million in funding in 2014 alone, has long worked with leading political figures, such as Secretary of State John Kerry and other world leaders.
However, its relationship with the Nation of Islam—which is run by vocal anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan—is not mentioned on the group’s website.
