Advocating for Illegal Driver’s Licenses

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A few days ago Amy Taxin at AP Los Angeles wrote an article about illegal immigrants obtaining driver’s licenses, and the troubles they may encounter. The article was entitled “Immigrants get Warning on Drivers Licenses.”

She begins by writing “While tens of thousands of immigrants living in the United States illegally are preparing to apply for long-sought driver’s license in California starting January 2, others are being urged to think twice.”

Maybe it’s just me, but shouldn’t everyone have a problem with that sentence? I know we’ve heard over and over, but I just can’t get over the fact that we’re going to reward criminals with driver’s licenses.

She continues: “Immigrant advocates say the vast majority should be able to get licenses without trouble, but they want anyone who previously obtained a driver’s license under a false name or someone else’s Social Security number to speak first with a lawyer, fearing a new application could trigger a fraud investigation.”

Now who exactly are these immigrant advocates? To what end are they advising these criminals and more importantly, who the heck is paying for the services? Are they volunteers, working for the good of mankind, or are they hacks being paid by some nonprofit organization that ultimately skims money from the government by means of a bogus federal grant or porkulus type spending provided by one of the leftist California Senators or Congressmen? read more

Kim Goes Hollywood

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Or should I say, Kim goes off on Hollywood.Kim

I remember my children asking me a while back why North Korea has become the go-to enemy on TV, etc. I told them at the time that North Korea was a safe and easy target to use as an international bad guy. Nobody really liked them. Their leader was a bad guy and pretty much unprotected by any politically correct blanket. Up until now, although it hasn’t been confirmed, North Korea did not appear to care about being the villain.

How things have changed. Hollywood has evidently stepped over a red line that the North Korean leader, that pygmy Kim Jong-un drew. I guess he doesn’t see the humor of a fake assassination attempt in a dopey movie. The left should have known better. It’s not like this is “The Assassination of George W. Bush, A Love Story” (available at Amazon.com for about $50, and no I’m not going to link to it) or anything.

All kidding aside though – I guess Hollywood now understands that when the leader of a nation draws a red line, you’d best take it seriously, except if that line is drawn in the sands of Syria. Then it’s just a joke. Get it?

So now that North Korea is off limits, where can Hollywood turn? read more

The Purge Three – de Blasio’s Revenge

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The city of New York is going nuts over the grand jury verdict declining to indict the New York police officer that subdued Eric Garner. Protests are breaking out all over the city and it may be just a matter of time before they morph into Ferguson type riots.

Now that all the strife is happening on the watch of lefty politicians, it seems they don’t quite know what to do. The radical rabble-rousers – the anti-establishment, authority hating leftists are now the ones in authority.

These guys who no doubt hate the military and the cops are now commanding them and it seems to be unraveling around them. I’m not sure about de Blasio, but I believe Obama wants it this way.

Anyway, none of us were there on the scene in NYC, just as none were witness to the Ferguson incident, so I can’t say what really happened. Some say it’s clearly murder while others say it was justified.

They should all just shut up. No one on TV, in print or radio knows, so they are just stirring the pot. And that includes our elected leaders. Obama and de Blasio want now to outfit all cops with “gotcha” cameras to better police the police, because there are so many bad cops out there, don’t you know. We all know that the cops just can’t be trusted. read more

Green Energy is Rubbish

from: Breitbart

Some people call it “renewable energy” but I prefer to call it “alternative energy” because that’s what it really is: an alternativeto energy that actually works (eg nuclear and anything made from wonderful, energy-rich fossil fuel.)

Now a pair of top boffins from uber-green Google’s research department have reached the same conclusion.

Ross Konigstein and David Fork, both Stanford PhDs (aerospace engineering; applied physics) were employed on a Google research project which sought to enhance renewable technology to the point where it could produce energy more cheaply than coal. But after four years, the project was closed down. In this post at IEEE Spectrum they tell us why. read more

Cleveland – Give it a Rest … Room

from: OneNewsNow

Women and men in the city of Cleveland will soon be charged with $1,000 criminal fines for voicing a problem or discomfort about a person of the opposite sex using their restrooms. This also goes for businesses that express customers’ uneasiness over a person of the opposite sex visiting the inappropriate (or non-traditional) restroom. Cleveland schools must abide by the ordinance.

Cleveland’s recently proposed and reviewed “transgender-inclusion bathroom and locker room ordinance” is not the first of its kind, as Houston and numerous other cities have also visited or enforced measures that award local residents the special right to use whatever facility they choose, regardless of their natural gender.

City officials behind the new law argue that those opposed to the ordinance need to wake up and adjust to the so-called going trend of society.

As key sponsors of the “public accommodations” section of the legislation affecting private businesses, Councilmen Matt Zone and Joe Cimperman stress that the new law was created to grant transgender people the choice to visit any restroom they choose to cater to whatever whim they have — regarding their gender identity issues. read more

The She Woman Man Haters Club

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I was not aware that there are different types of voters. All this time I thought there was just one. In one respect, I guess I’m correct. If you’re a Republican, or certainly a conservative, there is only one. However, Democrats, you see, have more options.

A Democrat can be a standard off-the-rack voter. Or he or she may be an illegal alien voter. A Democrat can be a multiple voter, casting several ballots – he or she can be a multistate voter or a multiple mail-in voter. The options seem endless. It’s a great time to be a sleazy Democrat.

But now, according to MoveOn.org, Democrats can be “Supervoters”! (no link – it was a email blast)

Unfortunately this moniker is only reserved for women.

Isn’t that sexist, you may ask? Of course not. Don’t be silly. Sexism, like racism is a one-way street. Just as “minorities” can’t be racist, women can’t be sexist. Come on conservatives – try to keep up.

Anyway, Anna Galland, the head harpy at MoveOn.org says that, “Women across the country do amazing and powerful things every day, but we have a special superpower right now: Our votes.”

She asks rhetorically: “Why are we so powerful now? Why are we Supervoters?”

She then explains that everyone wants them (trust me Anna – no one wants you). Both Republicans and Democrats are trying to lock up the female vote – because, you know – the female vote is so much different than the male. She says that Senate candidates in particular are trying to “woo” women.

Galland cheerfully exclaims: “Lucky for us, women tend to be more progressive than men.” Yes, it’s those evil Republican men that have made it so difficult for women all these years.

And just what have the Republicans done? Well Anna ticks off a whole laundry list of complaints. Oh, I’m sorry. Was that sexist to mention women and laundry in the same sentence? More than likely.

Evidently, Republicans have slashed education funding, closed abortion clinics and given control of contraceptives to the women’s employers. Wow – Republicans sure must hate women.

Galland claims that, “We understand that putting some of these guys in power is like giving our most misogynist, anti-choice, creepy uncle a leading role in deciding how we and our families should live our lives. No thanks!”

I wonder if she hates all males or just Republican men? My guess is that she is fine with the sniveling metrosexual weenie liberal men who say “how high” when she says “jump”.

She continues with a litany of liberal issues that will somehow all be in jeopardy if Republicans take the Senate. Issues like abortion and contraception, of course – illegal immigration – education funding and social services.

According to Galland, these are the only issues women care about. Evidently they don’t care about jobs. Women are apathetic over the pitiful economy – the deficit and debt. Apparently they don’t care about staggeringly higher Obamacare premiums or reduced medical coverage. I guess they don’t care about Ebola or terrorism. They apparently don’t mind that the price of everything is going up, save for a temporary reprieve of the price of gas.

These “Supervoters” are not supposed to be concerned that their own children are falling ill to a strange respiratory disease sweeping the nation, that just happens to coincide with the massive influx of illegals. I guess as long as they have their condoms and abortion on demand, the whole world can melt down around them.

If I were a woman, I would be insulted by someone or organization who thinks I’m just that stupid. This post is an insult to all intelligent women, but of course, that’s not who she’s appealing to, is it.

Liberal Women – Make up Your Minds Already

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Yesterday Rush Limbaugh discussed a YouTube video of a young woman that went viral. The woman, who looked to be in her 20s, was filmed for 10 hours silently walking the streets of Manhattan.

She wasn’t dressed provocatively, in a black and white T-shirt and black jeans. She was okay looking – certainly no beauty queen, but okay.

As she walked the streets, she said not a word, but just kept walking. Sorry – sounded like Dr. Seuss there for a minute.

The 10 hours were condensed down to a few minutes of what the video described as catcalling. Watching the video, I would hardly say that she was overly objectified, but that is obviously the message the makers of the video wish to convey – that men are predators.

The 10 hours of video must’ve been a dead bore if what they presented was the worst they had. Next time maybe use a more attractive woman that might elicit the base responses you’re searching for. Just some advice from a caveman.

Anyway, sure, there were a couple of creeps that actually walked alongside of her for a bit, but really nothing over the top. Many were just, “How you doin today?”

The video was presented by Hollaback and it claims to be dedicated to the eradication of “street harassment”. The display at the end of the video claimed over 100+ incidences of verbal harassment in the 10 hours. You may link to the video here. read more

Standards Must Be Maintained – Especially in the Military

by: the Common Constitutionalist

A couple of days ago an article was posted by Aaron MacLean entitled “Pressure Grows for Marines to Lower Standards for Women“.

Naturally I was intrigued and concerned. Heck, anyone who understands the job of our military should be concerned by that headline. One doesn’t have to have served to get that the military has high standards for a reason.

The article has to do with the Marine IOC (Infantry Officer Course) and its initial CET (Combat Endurance Test). Actually the article has more to do with military being increasingly run as a social experiment rather than a fighting force.

MacLean reports the 24 women had attempted the CET and none made it all the way through.

The Marines, as are the other branches, are being pushed to introduce women into combat roles, so when three women (not part of the original 24) made it through the initial stage, the news was widely reported and heralded. Yet when all three of the women were dropped for not meeting later physical requirements, MacLean found but one report – the Christian Science Monitor.

The three women, as well as three men, failed on a 9 mile hike. They had, according to the Monitor report, three hours to move 9 miles caring 124 pound packs. After falling behind for a second time, they were out. read more

Conundrum

 Conundrum
Free people are not equal.

Equal people are not free.

A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized. read more
