It has been a while since I’ve posted and there are a few things I want to touch on, but don’t have the time or the energy to give them the full treatment they deserve.
The Donald v. Illegal Immigration
What a rousing two weeks for presidential politics! Trump stands up and tells the truth on illegal immigration, namely, that the current state of our Southern border is dangerous to Americans. What happens when he tells the truth? The liberal media excoriates him, threatens him, cancels contracts with him. What is Donald’s response? As if he needed you! And what happens within days of all of this? An illegal immigrant who has been deported FIVE times shoots and kills a woman in San Francisco. Who is getting it right! The Donald has it right.
Same-Sex Unions/Marriage Supreme Court Debacle
The Supreme Court managed to do something no court has been able to do since 1787: find a fundamental right to marry in the Constitution. I guess if you are a liberal justice and you think the Constitution is a “living, breathing” document that molds and bends, you can do this. Declaring something a fundamental right has serious consequences. Be prepared for a lot more litigation in this arena as would be same-sex couples seek to compel others to marry them or face a suit for denying a fundamental right. Also note the tenor from the pro-same-sex marriage crowd. It was not enough just to win a Supreme Court victory. The objective now is to humiliate and reeducate anyone who disagrees.
It is stagnant. Participation in the labor force has not been this low since the 1970s. Stocks are up due to pumping from the Federal Reserve. College students collectively owe more than one trillion dollars of unsecured debt as of March of this year. If you are trying to start your own business, good luck. Good luck finding people who will work for $8.00-9.00 an hour when they get paid just as much by the government to sit at home.
The Pope is Now an Authority on Climate Change
I can’t believe no one sees the irony in this. The organization that brought you burnings at the stake for preaching against a flat Earth and a geocentric universe is now a global authority on climate change. And the very secular and even atheistic left wing has EMBRACED the Pope for his statement! Hell has officially frozen over, no pun intended.
