Have you ever gone around shirking any kind of resemblance to a quiz, test, or other big jargon like an exam when it comes down to what it is that we know in and from the U.S. Constitution? So many of us simply take it for granted that the Constitution is really the preamble “We the People”, in conjunction with those first ten or so amendments. Believe it or not, that is remarkably what it states about the importance of Americans Founding Documents for the Naturalization Test or basically any of the websites that offer quizzes.
As far as we are concerned there are three rudimentary questions that must be addressed if we are to survive as a people – a nation.
1 – Why is America so unique in world history; 2 – Why the Constitution (and the underlying principles on which it is based) enabled America to become the freest, most prosperous nation in history; and 3 – Why the key to making America great again is to restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.
To do this, “We the People” must elect a government that will respect rather than violate or ignore the Constitution. Subsequently the only way to make this happen is if the American people learn about and understand the Constitution, and it underlying principles of individual rights and limited government.
There are many, many sites available that will openly encourage each of us to take a small quiz. The Pew Research Center, the International Scholastic Institute, and of course, the Naturalization Test that regardless we ask each of you to at least take a look at what real dumbing-down is and consequently grade inflation.
There are many institutions that actively teach the Principles of the Constitution as well as American heritage which are so critical to preserving liberty in America.
We are fully convinced that the only way to counter the assault on the Constitution and to restore liberty in America is to educate American citizens and our elected leaders on the Constitution and its underlying principles.
There is a reason that the Founders debated and went through the ratification process to ensure we had a Constitution. The principle reason is that the Constitution does not allow the government to do what it wants – a reason that it established a federal government with specific, enumerated powers. That reason is to ensure that the federal government does what it must to preserve liberty, and does not become tyrannical.
The Constitution does not authorize Congress to create the massive bureaucracy today that results in a fourth branch of government. And with the passage and enactment of Obamacare, that branch will grow even larger.
The Founders understood the need for a Constitution to limit the power of the federal government to protect civil and religious liberty. It is well-known today that if our political leaders actually followed the Constitution, one estimate suggests that the federal government would be about one-third the size it is now.
Furthermore, most of the day-to-day governing in America would take place at the state and local level. Instead our leaders are ignoring or actively opposing the limits on government established by the Constitution, literally enslaving future generations with unsustainable debt.
Unfortunately, far too many Americans today don’t even know what the Constitution says – which is why America is in such dire straits. Most Americans have never even read our Declaration of Independence, which sets forth the principles of liberty and limited government more clearly than any document ever written.
Please do not forget about our poll just over to the right…please participate!
Are we experiencing tyranny…?
Are we indeed facing tyranny? Predicated upon the definitions of tyranny there can be no doubt whatsoever that we have a tyrannical top-heavy government – that uses as its medium of control is the cruel use of power.
Consequently, since Barack Obama took office he has espoused oppressive government – C.E.O. wages and pension plans, or severance pay and bonuses, including every public or private company in the United States. Well one may ask how anyone would be privy to that information. We respond by saying anyone with access to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has a way of finding out who’s making what from date to date.
Our point is as a matter of just looking at the current obstructions – Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate, and perhaps the most egregious, AP-gate we find these obstructions a cruel and oppressive act especially by one committed to wielding great power – like the president.
Now overall since this man and his fellow corrupt-o-crats have laid siege on Washington D.C., hence the world, let’s look at some of his maneuvering. Asserting a dictatorship by not consulting Congress in matters regarding immigration reform which he took upon himself through the old fashioned way – the back door is about as sorry as anyone can aspire to be.
It is our posture that this man does not have the necessary constructs to even be a member of humankind. Here we speak of dimensions of the soul – conscience, ethics, and his constant acts of domination that instills despotism in our fellow Americans.
When one looks at the dossier of what has occurred on this man’s watch it could stand before any other U.S. leader. The green energy scandals, the Welfare Reform Act through his totalitarian justice system are ridiculous. Giving away Benefit Cards for food stamps and other sundries, and lest we forget green cards for all the incoming dreamers and illegal’s.
But wait…this is the same man who developed and shoved Obamacare down the throats when over 70 percent of Americans said no. In our attempt by publishing the “ Didn’t know” list in combination with Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate, Obamacare, free i Phones, his own Secret Service mess in Colombia, as well as AP-gate we believe that this individual has a lot to be held accountable for and to whom.
In other related matters we implore you to visit The Weekly Standard to follow up on this brilliant piece of investigative journalism.
The White House on Wednesday released 94 pages of emails between top administration and intelligence officials who helped shape the talking points about the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that the CIA would provide to policymakers in both the legislative and executive branches.
The documents, first reported by THE WEEKLY STANDARD in articles here and here, directly contradict claims by White House press secretary Jay Carney and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that the revisions of those talking points were driven by the intelligence community and show heavy input from top Obama administration officials, particularly those at the State Department.

Just imagine this…
Eric Holder lashed out at his chief antagonist Wednesday at a congressional hearing where the attorney general was questioned on recent administration scandals, telling Republican Rep. Darrell Issa at the end of a tense exchange that his conduct is “shameful.”
Holder’s comments came after Issa accused him of purposely and repeatedly keeping information from Congress. Now let’s all ask ourselves…does AG Eric Holder purposely keep information from Congress?
Any sound and logical person, knowing the history of Eric Holder’s visits to the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Committee on Ethics and Responsibility, and now the House Judiciary Committee investigating Holder’s involvement with why he called the FBI and other DOJ personnel off of the Boston Marathon bomber; there’s a key here folks – Eric Holder has been found in Contempt predicated upon is dragging feet with the Fast & Furious investigation.
“No, that’s what you typically do,” Holder responded. Following crosstalk, Holder added, “That is inappropriate and is too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress. It’s unacceptable and it’s shameful.”
The heated exchange with the lawmaker who led the charge against Holder regarding the botched Operation Fast and Furious came during a House Judiciary Committee hearing that examined a new set of scandals. Holder was grilled on a series of allegations, including the way the agency tried to find out who was behind a government leak to The Associated Press.
The AP, along with several lawmakers, say the Justice Department infringed on the constitutional rights of the press when it secretly obtained two months’ worth of phone records. Lawmakers tried to get answers out of Holder Wednesday but voiced frustration after Holder repeatedly rebuffed questions by claiming he wasn’t involved in the decision-making process.
This brings us to a portion that speaks volumes about the entire Obama administration. How often have we, as America citizens seen the usurping and unreasonable attacks on our rights by this over sized and pathetic government?
Worse still is how many times they think we are going to buy-in to their somehow faulty memories – for example:
REV WRIGHT racist statements – “didn’t know”
BILL AYERS – “didn’t know him from that era”
AIG EXECUTIVE BONUSES – “didn’t know”
SOCIAL SECURITY SCANDAL lavish parties- “didn’t know”
VAN JONES resignation – “didn’t know his radical past”
ACORN wide-spread scandals – “didn’t know”
SECRET SERVICE scandal – “didn’t know”
ALIAS EMAILS / EPA – “didn’t know”
EPA RADICAL ARMENDARIZ, RESIGNATION – “didn’t know”
FAST & FURIOUS – “didn’t know”
BENGHAZI – “didn’t know”
IRS TARGETING CONSERVATIVES – “didn’t know”
AP PHONE WIRETAPPING scandal – “didn’t know”
What kind of administration would go to the lengths…
What can you say about an administration that lies systematically about events leading up to the torture-murder of one of its ambassadors, U.S. military personnel and other U.S. citizens in Benghazi?
That can you say about an administration that uses drones to spy on its own citizens and to kill them overseas without due process. Has there ever been a time in the history of the U.S. where anyone remotely had domination complex?
What can you say about an administration that monitors the phone records of the largest news-gathering organization in the world – and one of the friendliest to that administration?
The only fair assessment is that it is a rogue administration. One that represents a frightening departure from any previous historical precedent in its authoritarian nature, one out of touch with the rule of law, one that is revealing itself to be prone to tyrannical policies and one that has committed so many impeachable offenses it’s becoming difficult to count them all.
And please don’t mind…but it is us who have stood by and done nothing whatsoever to stop this thug with his thuggery. (Please click here for further attribution.)
Almost on a daily basis now the police-state tactics of the Obama White House are on display. They no longer need to be ferreted out by a handful of independent journalists and the citizen blogosphere. Even the Big Media that have coddled Barack Obama and shielded him from scrutiny for nearly five years are shocked by what they see. (Please see this link.)
The latest abuse was revealed by the Associated Press – which was also the victim.
The lead says it all: “WASHINGTON (AP) – The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of…
The shocking report goes on to explain both work and personal phone records were seized and scrutinized.
“In all, the government seized the records for more than 20 separate telephone lines assigned to AP and its journalists in April and May of 2012,” the report continued. “The exact number of journalists who used the phone lines during that period is unknown, but more than 100 journalists work in the offices where phone records were targeted, on a wide array of stories about government and other matters.”
AP is, of course, outraged – and today sent a letter of protest to Attorney General Eric Holder, who, I predict, will not finish out his term in office.
“There can be no possible justification for such an over-broad collection of the telephone communications of the Associated Press and its reporters,” said the letter. “These records potentially reveal communications with confidential sources across all of the news-gathering activities undertaken by the AP during a two-month period, provide a road map to AP’s news-gathering operations and disclose information about AP’s activities and operations that the government has no conceivable right to know,” wrote AP President and Chief Executive Officer Gary Pruitt.
Obama rose to power suddenly and, with the help of friendly media like the AP, was unstoppable in his bid for a second term. But he may be the cause of his own political undoing. Nobody likes what they are seeing in Washington today – not the left nor the right nor the mushy middle, not the so-called “mainstream media” nor its burgeoning alternative, not conservative legal watchdogs nor the American Civil Liberties Union.
The Obama administration is running out of cheerleaders.
This is big.
It’s a game-changer.
Obama is fighting off too many scandals – Benghazi-gate, IRS-gate and now Press-gate.
If this were almost any other president in American history, he would already be writing his resignation letter.
As tempting as it might be for anyone in Washington to find some way to spin the tragic events of the Boston bombings to advance their legislative agenda on Capitol Hill—and as mentioned in yesterday’s article they will indeed; however, they ought to think twice. That particularly goes for all sides in the immigration debate.
We are irked, therefore, that some of the bill’s supporters are making the case that the bombings in Boston demonstrate that we need the bill so “we can know who’s here.”
Washington should not get ahead of the facts, and it will take some time before we understand all sides to the events in Boston. From what we know so far, it appears law enforcement has conducted a textbook investigation into the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
They gave us the factual information they had, when they had it, and when they could share it. When it comes to tweaking the measures we use to prevent terrorist travel and foil plots, it is far too premature based on what they have told us to draw any conclusions on how to be more efficient at fighting terrorism.
America has had over a decade of experience in battling both transnational and “home-grown” terrorism. There is already plenty of experience to draw conclusions on how to keep this nation safe, free, and prosperous. When it comes to counterterrorism, the single most effective tool is finding the terrorists and stopping them before they kill. That has been the key to success to foiling most of the 54 frustrated plots by Islamist terrorists against America.
Good immigration and border security policies play an important, but supporting role. Generally, the rule is if you have good policies that facilitate legal immigration and travel while providing for public safety and security — they will serve well to help thwart terrorist travel.
In fact, the bill promises “new security” by demanding the government have an electronic system to ensure that we can check out every foreign visitor leaving the country. The problem is the federal requirement to do that is not new— it has been on the books at least 17 years and ignored by three different Administrations. It is still not in place. There is a vigorous debate over if “building this system is worth the security or immigration enforcement benefits it may provide.”
There are national security problems with the bill that we hope to be able to debate at length.
The Boston bombings were a stark reminder that terrorism is still a real security threat. The seriousness of that threat requires we react carefully and thoughtfully in debating key issues to
ensure we do what’s right to solve immigration reform and border security.
Therefore, we contend that we should make ALL MATTERS OF IMMIGRATION REFORM coming from or endorsed by the U.S. Senate be scrutinized to the inth degree. As time continues on we become far more
aware that we do not have a fence — built and completed before they started up again with immigration reform. Furthermore, let’s not forget about the Border Patrol officers, police, law enforcement personnel, and the lot who have paid the ultimate price, with their lives, ensuring our safety.
For example allow us this question: Would you willingly allow Senator’s Schumer, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, or Dick Durbin and many others your PIN numbers to the bank account? Or giving any one of them the keys to your house for a week or month? Sorry folks, I just don’t trust them at all!
In 2008, Uwe Romeike fled Germany after facing imprisonment and the threat of his children being taken away. His crime? Romeike wanted to homeschool his five kids, which is illegal in Germany. The United States granted the family political asylum, and they’ve lived in the U.S. for the past several years.
It is extremely important to stipulate here that as we reported earlier, this family was granted asylum because the German government threatened to take all of the children away from their parents and setup foster-care for adoption as well as imprisoning the parents.
Then, the Department of Justice asserted that the practice of parents educating their children cannot be used a basis to seek citizenship and attempted to send them back to Germany.
The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to hear oral arguments later this month. Mike Farris is from the Home School Legal Defense Association and is helping Romeike fight his deportation in court.
The DOJ is arguing that homeschooling is not a protected right and that parents who do so are not a protected group. Romeike said, “I certainly think its persecution when the government tries to take away your children from you.”
And isn’t this the reality of the argument? The terms of the Romeikes political asylum are based on civil rights abuses inasmuch as it was determined that the law in Germany – not with respect to homeschooling; rather, removing the children from their natural parents was indeed against the principles initiated by the United States.
In December 2010, U.S. Immigration Judge Lawrence O. Burman granted asylum to Uwe and Hannalore Romeike, who homeschool their five children (they now have another baby as well). The family is living in Tennessee.
The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) filed an appeal, arguing that homeschoolers are not a fit category for granting asylum. Keep in mind that they bend the law to grant asylum to others, including same-sex partners. The Board of Immigration Appeals overturned Judge Burman’s decision, and the family is fighting deportation.
In his ruling, Judge Burman declared that Germany’s policy abridges “basic human rights that no country has a right to violate” and is “repellent to everything we believe in as Americans.”
In the United States, we recognize that unalienable rights, including parental rights, come from our Creator. The Administration’s treatment of the Romeikes reveals much about what this regime values, and it’s apparently not independent, God-fearing families.
Compare this situation:
Judge Janet Kinton-Walker says Nicolas Guaman’s “unique cultural background” and language barrier means that he doesn’t understand the court process, the report said. The court also said that he lacks the ability to consult with his attorney properly.
Mr. Dutan-Guaman, 35, is awaiting trial in Worcester Superior Court on charges that include second-degree murder, drunk driving, leaving the scene of an accident causing death, and driving without a license in an Aug. 20, 2011, accident that claimed the life of Matthew Denice. Mr. Dutan-Guaman allegedly ran a stop sign, hitting Mr. Denice’s motorcycle and dragging him under his Ford F-150 pickup truck for a quarter of a mile before stopping for police.
Mr. Dutan-Guaman does not have a mental disease or defect that would prohibit him from learning the information necessary to become competent to stand trial, however, the judge ordered Mr. Ettenberg to file a motion for funds to hire an interpreter who speaks Quechua, a dialect spoken in rural Ecuador, to assist him in teaching his client what he needs to know about the legal process in order to be deemed competent.
I did not vote for the current POTUS; however, his fundamental lack of leadership has created a chaotic situation and a sense of apathy among our people. Moreover, every conceivable promise that this person has made to the people of the U.S. he has beyond imagination lied or fabricated the truth to the point of near anarchy.
Luckily we were drawn to this article published (in part) by our friends at Western Center for Journalism and although we made a few adjustments we strongly hold the same position. We’d also love to take the opportunity to recognize the original author, Louise Hodges, for her supreme and scholarly submission.
I have no use for Barack Obama. I don’t need a President with a history of drug abuse who puts the dreams of his father above the interests of the United States. Obama’s presidency is like a giant sinkhole, swallowing up everything we ever valued as Americans.
It’s almost an insult to our intelligence, to ask us to believe that Obama is a US citizen. He has a schizophrenic timeline of unexplained foreign travel, a list of aliases, and uncomfortable friendships with communists and hostile governments.
We can drop this debate over his birth certificate because we have something even more valuable. We have his mother’s passport files.
Stanley Ann Dunham’s passport files were obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and then posted online. (Strunk v. US Department of State)
When Obama was young, children traveled as an addition to their parents’ passports.
Passport regulations required a photo of parent and child together, as well as a certified copy of a hospital birth certificate. State-issued IDs came much later.
If Obama was born in the United States, as everybody says, then there should be a photo of little Barack Obama with his mother, as well as a certified copy of his Hawaiian birth certificate in her file.
Surprise. There are no photos of little Barack Obama in the file. And of course, there is no birth certificate from any hospital in Hawaii.
I know the passport laws for children. Obama’s mother and I would be approximately the same age if she survived. I filled out the very same passport applications for my own daughter, three years after Obama’s mother took him to Jakarta. The laws were the same for both of us.
My daughter was born in an Army hospital in Japan in 1971, when my husband was in the Navy. I added her to my passport so I could bring her back to the United States.
I carried a joint passport for myself and my daughter through US Customs and Immigration in Hawaii. I can tell you from experience that if Obama’s mother tried to take her son through US Customs and Immigration in Hawaii without a joint passport for herself and her son, she would have been stopped.
The obvious question is who took him through US Customs and Immigration and helped him board the plane in Hawaii? And who brought him back?
The only mention of little Barack Obama is when his mother tried to renew her passport at the US Consulate in Jakarta a few years later. We see evidence of that in the file.
She tried to trick the passport office. She went to the US Consulate in Jakarta and wrote “Barack Obama” in the section where you add your child. She thought, like we did, that they were going to add him to her passport, no questions asked.
They probably laughed and asked her how her son got to Jakarta without a US Passport.
When she failed to go get this Hawaiian birth certificate and retake her photo, the Passport Office crossed out his name.
She found herself stuck in Jakarta, trying to sneak her son back to the United States.
All Congress has to do is ask the Passport Legal Office to explain how Obama’s mother took him through US Customs and Immigration without a US passport. We don’t see that happening.
The customary hat-tip is in order!
It is now overwhelmingly obvious that the Obama Administration has been at work for quite some time seeing to it that the executive branch – rather than do what the majority of the American people want to have done – even Hispanics, Latinos, and everyone south of Mexico wants to see happen.
We at The Contemplative Thinker believe that this path or means to immigration reform has been conspired, planned, and orchestrated right in front of the American people and the entire world.
What can we, or any other citizen of the United States say about “FREEDOM” when our own President, Congressional Members, and special interest groups are enacting rules, policies, procedures, and/or bills and acts? We believe that this approach as ushered in by Senator Patrick Leahy as well as the POTUS is unconscionable. Here is what Thomas Jefferson had to say about it:
This is an interesting thought, if the government through its self-described “Inaction” does allow various things to happen, especially with the current system of illegal aliens, isn’t this really describing the government taking “action” by allowing an invasion and other acts against the U.S. Constitution?
In its latest clandestine effort to protect illegal immigrants the Obama Administration plans to prohibit both federal and local law enforcement officers from arresting undocumented aliens discovered as a result of traffic violations.
This week’s plan being offered is to shield illegal immigrants who break U.S. law by operating a vehicle without a license or driving recklessly, possibly endangering innocent Americans which we all know has happened too many times. A draft policy issued by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) says that agency Chief John Morton intends to prohibit his agents as well as local law enforcement officers from detaining illegal aliens stopped during traffic violations.
It marks the third time this month that a covert plan to shield illegal aliens from deportation gets exposed. A few weeks ago the administration ordered authorities to halt the removal of some 700,000 illegal immigrants who are students while lawmakers construct legislation to officially spare them from expulsion.
And we agree full-heartedly. We’ve all heard about “The Memo” by now; but actually seeing it is another story. Therefore, we’ve decided (unlike Holder, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and Janet Napolitano) to give everyone here a look-see and hopefully a read. So here’s the link and please have a look at what easily could have been the “Pentagon Papers.” (Please click here for the Memo.)
And finally we realized that this exact same time last year we had written an openly encouraging article which dealt with America’s law enforcement agencies (LEA) were finally working together – until we got the real truth from too many law enforcement agents from around the country – that the fact of the matter was in reality just window dressing. (Please click here to see this article.)
Never, ever, ever, even in my wildest dreams and imagination did I ever think that I’d be a first-hand witness to a government that is up to a complete different task than what the American people think. What is happening now with the Obama Administration is exactly opposite of what principles this nation was founded upon and to think that as the days go forth those who ‘framed’ our unique government operation are being ignored. The original article was written on September 9, 2010; in an attempt to keep all of us up to date several articles have been consolidated. Thank you.
The “Original Letter” from Senate Judiciary Committee
These are some babble from the esteemed POTUS, Barack Obama. Please take notice that for each occurring trouble spot there is, of course, some other excuse for why he didn’t get his original job done.
The “verge of collapse” actually started about six months before Obama was president. He knew about AIG, the banks, especially Lehman Brothers and the other investment bankers who spent what they did not own. Moreover, he also knew of the Freddie Mac and Fanny Mae and other mortgage lenders’ bankruptcy before it happened.
None of this was new to Barack Obama yet look at these terrible excuses and fortification of lies. Sure, he talks of cutting taxes on the middle class but did he? We suggest “No” inasmuch as not only has there been tax hikes but for one who must be engaged with Obamacare is taxed considerably higher.
The same with small businesses; although now because of Obamacare these businesses are slowing down in start-ups and more people being laid-off. By the way, where did he get the funds to “bail-out” and saving an auto industry? Taxpayers and citizens.
Now although this person is I’m happy to take responsibility for being naive here – where did those “Republicans” run too? Or do you think that this letter had something to do with it?
Please read, amass, and reflect on this memorandum that we use to show everyone in the U.S. as well as the world the fortitude of this pathological liar. (FOR YOUR PERUSAL)
In addition, we have included an earlier post that reports on Madam Secretary Janet Napolitano of the Department of Homeland Security, please read and reflect. (Here you are!)
Or so it would seem to us. We have had it with these people who want to be leaders albeit, do not have the training, knowledge, or wisdom to be leaders. We’re going to be looking into the ideals of immigration reform – a topic we believe is rather an easy one; but no, no, no, as long as there are activist members of congress who think that it is “un-American” to force immigration laws (Nancy Pelosi) as well as a Secretary of the Department of Homeland Securities (Janet Napolitano), and a president who willy-nilly signs executive orders calling for amnesty – where exactly do the American people come in?
The United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), now referred to as Legacy INS, ceased to exist under that name on March 1, 2003, when most of its functions were transferred from the Department of Justice to three new entities – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) – within the newly created Department of Homeland Security, as part of a major government reorganization following the September 11 attacks of 2001.
After 1890, the Federal government, rather than the individual states, regulated immigration into the United States, and the Immigration Act of 1891 established a Commissioner of Immigration in the Treasury Department. Over the years, these matters were later transferred to the purview of the United States Department of Commerce and Labor after 1903, the Department of Labor after 1913, and the Department of Justice after 1940.
Now trying to be as fair as possible the people responsible for this last action ostensibly are those ‘democratic elites’ we wrote about yesterday. If there is any difficulty in understanding up to this point, it is important to remember that from 1940 until March 1, 2003 the INS was transferred to the purview of the Department of Justice.
In 2003 the administration of immigration services, including permanent residence, naturalization, asylum, and other functions became the responsibility of the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services
(BCIS), which existed only for a short time before changing to its current name, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The investigative and enforcement functions (including investigations, deportation, and intelligence) were combined with INS and U.S. Customs investigators, the Federal Protective Service, and the Federal Air Marshal Service, to create U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The border functions of the INS, which included the Border Patrol along with INS Inspectors, were combined with U.S. Customs Inspectors into the newly created U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The 2000 documentary Well-Founded Fear provided the first and only time a film crew was privy to a behind-the-scenes look at the INS asylum process in the U.S.
Let’s look at what congress is charged with – constitutionally. Under Article II, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution it is stated:
[The Congress] is to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the Subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;
It all looks quite simple to us – that is, all congress is charged with doing was putting a uniform set of rules of naturalization and see to those rules affects and consistencies. Easy as pie. Can you imagine if only for a moment what if a reasonable and responsible congress saw to it that their lawmaking was executed to the fullest extent of the law?
I want to be able and sit back and tell you all is well – but the fact remains that it simply is not. All one needs to do is look at paragraphs one and two of this writing to see how knee jerk reactions cause unintended consequences to happen throughout the entire nation.
It is important to note that just about on a decade basis – once every 10 years or thereabouts – some irresponsible and unreasonable member of congress is back at it again. Press anyone of the links in the first three paragraphs and scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see more Acts, Bills, and other attempts to get things regarding immigration changed.
After all is this precisely what is going on in Congress and the executive branch of government right now? It does not take a lot folks to determine what has worked and what hasn’t worked.
America does not have a control of the amounts of immigrants that are already unaccounted for; subsequently, as refugees pull up in ships, or Florida’s famous law as to whether or not the illegal trying to escape Cuba has his feet on wet land or dry land assists tremendously in determining where that person originated.
