Which bills should the House pass?

January 20, 2013
By

Barack Obama’s agenda consists of the following:

1. Amnesty for illegal aliens
2. Unlimited borrowing and spending by the federal government
3. Throttling economic growth to combat globull “warming”

And, in recent weeks,

4. Gun control

The Republican-controlled House does not, of course, have to co-operate. Mitt Romney actually won a majority of House districts, thanks to gerrymandering; so most Republican House members have to worry about primary challengers more than general election opponents.

But, given a sufficient wave, the House could go Democrat.

That’s Obama’s goal in 2014: He’ll demagogue against Congress, help elect a Democrat House, and accelerate the Californication of America. Given how talented a demagogue he’s proven himself to be, Obama might well succeed.

So the House should keep in mind that it’s actions now could well put the Democrats in charge in 2015.

The House should work out compromises with the Senate and White House on issues where demagoguery could actually work, and simply sit on bills where the voters would not punish the House for inaction.

Specifically, the House should let the following legislation wither on the vine:

Globull “warming”
Nobody cares about this, other than brown-rice-eating Obama voters. They’ll turn out in force for Democrats no matter what; so there’s no political benefit in passing any bill on this issue. Rather, Republicans can use it against Democrats in states like West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Virginia.

Amnesty for illegals
The much-hyped Latino vote constituted just 10 percent of the vote in 2012, an election year. This is a constituency that voted Democrat 71-27, so it’s already lost. Plus the Latino turnout is likely to be much lower in 2014, a midterm election.

Adding tens of millions of poor, low-skilled, under-educated, non-English-speaking, leftwing Third-Worlders to the voter rolls would have such a terrible permanent impact on America’s future that no Republican Congress should acquiesce to it.

The majority of voters oppose amnesty. So Obama will have a hard time demagoguing amnesty for illegal aliens.

Californication is well underway, and the future is bleak. But we can at least slow down the pace of ruin.

But the other two issues – gun control and fiscal deadlines – are such ripe candidates for demagoguery that Republicans must find some way to negotiate with the House and White House to find compromises. Of course, our opening position could be that we won’t negotiate. But following through on that position will probably result in a Democrat House in 2015, which would make much, much worse decisions on these issues and others.

So a poll for you:

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

    Yesterday’s headline:

    5 people shot at 3 different gun shows on Gun Appreciation Day

    • artist on January 20, 2013 at 8:36 am

      How many people were injured/killed in car collisions yesterday?

      Thanks in advance.

      • Mildred Smith on January 20, 2013 at 8:39 am

        You mean “how many people were run over at car shows?”

        You’re welcome.

        • artist on January 20, 2013 at 8:40 am

          Um no, stupid.

          The firearm discharge was accidental.

          How many car accidents were there yesterday?

          Thanks again.

          • Mildred Smith on January 20, 2013 at 8:55 am

            How many people were UNINTENTIONALLY run over at car shows?

            I didn’t think I had to add the word “unintentionally” but I’ll put it in if that makes you feel better.

            You’re welcome!

        Artist,
        When you are dealing with a closed mind it is futile to waste any kind of nuanced argumentation. Simple is as simple does.

      SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE SNUCK A ROUND IN AND INTENTIONALLY FIRED IT OFF TO CREATE
      MORE ANTI GUN AMMO FOR THE MEDIA.
      That is the modis operendi of the left

      • ATTILA 747 on January 21, 2013 at 9:07 am

        More likely, one of yours snuck in ammo, to make it look like one of theirs snuck in ammo, creating a vacuum of chaos that will be the undoing of the Kenyan Marxist, leading to a new world order led by complete tools like IP727.

        Damn you are dumb.

  2. artist on January 20, 2013 at 8:39 am

    I would add that owning a car and driving is not a right.

    Firearm ownership OTOH, is.

    You’re not getting our guns, Mildred.

    Drives you insane, eh?

    • Mildred Smith on January 20, 2013 at 9:00 am

      Being against something no one is proposing is such a brave stance. Keep up the “good” work!

      • Drake T on January 22, 2013 at 10:34 am

        No one? Really? no one is proposing legislation against guns or gunowners Mildred?

        Are there unicorns that live in that delusional little world with you?

        Damn you’re dumb.

        • The beast of revelations on January 22, 2013 at 4:44 pm

          Oh, Drake T, my precious, are you back with your hate, to do my work? Unite them, and lead them, with your bile.

    Fight global warming and let Obama pass Cap and Trade. That will send gas through the roof by ’16. I would shut down the government over spending and give the House up if anyone has a problem with it. If the American people want to give Obama and the Democrats the right to rip off the debt ceiling, then they can vote out the GOP first. That will have the net effect of crashing the economy by 2020.

    The best way to beat the Democrats at this point is to let them govern. Let red state Dems explain why they would support Supreme Court justices who would overturn the second amendment.

    Sounds serious. How many killed?

        Conspiracies are shiny objects for those on the far right fringe.

        The internet is a rich, fertile hothouse, before you know it, “the Kenyan Communist ordered live rounds”…

          You are so naive.

          “That is the modis operendi of the left”

          Leftists would never resort to that sort of despicable behavior.

          • Drake T on January 22, 2013 at 10:40 am

            Leftists would never resort to that sort of despicable behavior

            No, the left prefers to go to OWS protests and shit on police cars and gang rape females in tents while other leftys stand guard. The left prefers to instigate riots and mob violence whenever some legislation passes which does not fit their communist agenda. How many people had to go to the hospital after the last “peaceful” liberal protests over stopping the corrupt public unions? How many were hurt, raped, infected with disease or killed during all of the OWS idiocy?

            Riiiiiiight, the leftists would “never” resort to that kind of despicable behavior. No, not at all.

            Phfffftt!! You’re an idiot – but thanks for playing, moron.

    Pass none of these bills, obviously. Pass nothing.

    • Jay Ace on January 20, 2013 at 3:31 pm

      That’s the beauty of gerrymandering, you can use local power to destroy a natiom.

      If you can’t have your silly ideals, then burn it all down.

      • rightwingyahoo on January 20, 2013 at 3:34 pm

        for someone whose crew has set the country on a straight downhill glide since 2008, you sure do like to throw shit.

        Be content that your Kenyan Communist will preside over 4 more years of decline, and shut the fuck up, why don’t you?

        • Jay Ace on January 20, 2013 at 3:51 pm

          Kenyan Communist?

        Yes, that was the DEMOCRAT MOTTO for Bush’s two terms so it’s nice to see that you are now against what you were once for. Nice double standard, hypocrite.

        You cannot parody the left.

          So many sock puppets, you have spawn, that is good, my precious.

  7. rightwingyahoo on January 20, 2013 at 3:32 pm

    gun control/fiscal are less demagogic than immigration. This whole post is stupid.

  8. rightwingyahoo on January 20, 2013 at 3:35 pm

    Anyway this is a clueless post. Pass none of Obama’s agenda, obviously. If the house then goes full commie in 2014, well, then let the Scumocrats pass it.

  9. rightwingyahoo on January 20, 2013 at 3:36 pm

    Fucking commie trolls sitting on the threads of a dead site. Why post here you prick bastards?

      Electroshock therapy for you, my friend.

      Snap out of it.

      Rightwingyahoo, the commie troll’s pathetic arguments have been so thoroughly debunked and destroyed on this site, again and again, that he now just sits in the dark of his mommy’s basement and constantly refreshes his screen on this dead blog, hoping to post some childish idiocy to try and make up for all the other times he’s been defeated (which is all of them, BTW). What a total loser.

      Pathetic liberal cockroach. He is to be pitied. or laughed at (your call).

  10. bobo on January 21, 2013 at 1:52 pm

    Yeah go ahead and “compromise” on gun control. It’s a great idea to piss off the only constituency left that hasn’t lost faith in the GOP as a bulwark for their positions and will come out in overwhelming force to vote. Are you trying to kill off the GOP Poli?

  11. NRA4EVER on January 22, 2013 at 8:37 am

    Gun control destroyed the dems in the early 90’s and only ignorant fools don’t know it.

    Let the liberal pols shriek about Gun Control and then simply play their own anti-2nd Amendment words on TV and web ads (over & over) during the 2014 election cycle and watch the gun control supporting dems swirl the crapper drain and hand over even more power to a GOP congress.

    The lefty pols who learned from their big mistake in the early 90’s won’t touch this.
    And, any idiot pol who does pursue 0bama’s gun grabbing agenda will be destroyed in 2014

    It’s as simple as that and only leftist fools do not understand how this works.
