A nominee to replace a retiring Supreme Court Justice is named. What, exactly, are the nominee's qualifications to hold the office? One, the nominee is female; two, the nominee is Hispanic.
These are the sole qualifications upon which Sonia Sotomayor has been nominated to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice David Souter! Sotomayor certainly was not nominated for her understanding of the Constitution and Bill of Rights; or her understanding of the rule of law; Sotomayor has a 60% reversal rate on appeal of decisions rendered.
Now liberals are quietly suggesting that the media go after the plaintiff in the most recent Supreme Court reversal of a Sotomayor decision; the suggestion being that his history of litigation be used to divert attention from Sotomayor's lack of judicial experience and lack of understanding of the Constitution and Bill of Rights; the fact that she is an activist judge who has no respect for the rule of law.
One has to ask what has the plaintiff in Ricci v DeStefano got to do with Sotomayor's judicial record; unless, of course, Sotomayor is admitting that her decision in the Ricci case had more to do with her passions, opinions and prejudices than with the rule of law? Such certainly conforms to her record. And such certainly speaks to the fact that she should never have been even considered as a possibility to fill Souter's seat.
Is Sotomayor's nomination to the United States Supreme Court insane? How could one call it anything else? Insanity seems to be the norm these days!
Beyond her record, Sotomayor is a racist bigot, with connections to racist organizations such as La Raza. That the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) deems anyone opposed to Sotomayor as racist and contends La Raza is a "thoroughly mainstream human rights organization" is telling. But then, intelligent people take the SPLC and Morris 'Sleaze' Dees with the grain of salt they are due.
Sotomayor has no business on the United States Supreme Court.
Yet Senators like Patty Murray (D-WA) and Maria Cantwell (D-WA), both femi-Nazi's of the first order, go absolutely ga-ga at the very mention of Sotomayor's name! One can almost see the slobber dripping from their chins!
Speaking of Patty Murray, she has engaged in a campaign, in Washington State, to push the usurper's socialized medicine agenda. She is currently soliciting sob stories from people in Washington State regarding health care; claiming those sob stories are proof of a "health care crisis."
She went before the cameras recently to speak of an 11-year-old boy who approached her with the story of how his mother, 27, had died from lack of health care. Senator Murray told how this "hard working" mother, who was "trying to provide for her family" had become ill, lost her job due to her illness, and ultimately, died from her illness.
But folks, let's do the math. The boy was 11; his mother 27. That means she was somewhere in the vicinity of 16 when he was born. An un-wed mother? Maybe; no mention of a father or husband was made. A teenage mother? Definitely.
Why did this teenager end up pregnant? Was it what she was taught in the schools? Was she taught that she should refrain from sexual activity until married or was she taught that she should have sex when it felt right to her as is taught in too many of the government schools today; the same government schools that Patty Murray thinks are just doing a wonderful job of educating children? These are the same schools that view parents as the "silent partner" in the raising and education of the child; the same schools whose goal it is to inculcate in the child the attitudes, values and beliefs (that children are required to demonstrate mastery of) that promote the government agenda of increased power and control over people.
And because this teenager was obviously sexually active, but was neither mature nor responsible as most teenagers aren't, she ended up pregnant which is all too common under the "if it feels good, do it" philosophy of self-indulgence. This same philosophy extends to using drugs and drinking alcohol.
After becoming pregnant, did she finish high-school or did she drop out?
And even if she finished high school, when she started out with few skills and a child to support, what were her chances of getting a good paying job, one with benefits?
Instead of looking at the source of the problem — a teenager who, had she been taught self-discipline instead of self-indulgence, would have had a greater probability of being alive today with a good paying job, one with benefits — Senator Murray sees this situation as an opportunity to wrest more power to government under the claim that lack of health care caused her death. That simply is not true.
And while Senator Murray and her comrades claim there are approximately 45,000,000 uninsured in America today, what she isn't saying is that most of those are illegal aliens; that the illegal alien population is the unnamed reason behind the "health care crisis". Again, the truth that Senator Murray carefully conceals is that if we get rid of the 45,000,000 illegals in this country, that are here in violation of existing law, we get rid of the problem.
The truism that government serves to perpetuate its own interests of power and control is long established—the War of Poverty increased poverty; the War on Drugs increased drug usage; the War on Terror has spent a lot of money and accomplished nothing; Goals 2000 destroyed all vestiges of the ability of a child to receive competent education; and on and on.
The government does nothing that does not serve its purposes of justifying ever-increasing power and control.
And what Senator Murray isn't willing to say, but is the truth, is that 1) having health insurance is no guarantee against dying, and 2) under socialized medicine, this mother would have also died, for socialized medicine is about saving money, not lives. Under socialized medicine, those deemed "useless eaters" — the elderly, indigent, chronically ill, terminally ill — will be denied health care in the name of cost savings!
Senator Murray, and those like her, are playing a shell game. What they claim, and what the truth is, are diametrically opposed. But like the liar in the Oval Office, they will lie to get what they want: more power, more control.
Is it insane to encourage self-destructive behavior in the quest for power? Yes, it is. People who encourage this type behavior do so for their own purposes and not because they "care about people"—the mantra under which they operate. If they truly cared about people, they would do everything in their power to make people self-reliant, independent, and eternally free from the bondage that government, by its very nature, seeks. They would, in every instance, do that which limits the power and control of government.
As with everything the government does, illegal aliens serve a purpose in increasing government power and control:
1. Illegals bring communicable diseases that have to be addressed; requiring resources the illegals do not pay for.
2. Illegals come to America because of the "free" health care; requiring resources the illegals do not pay for.
3. Illegals get social benefits; requiring resources the illegals do not pay for.
4. The children of illegals must be educated; requiring resources the illegals do not pay for.
5. The more illegals who displace American workers, the more Americans who go bankrupt and can't meet their bills; requiring resources the illegals and their employers do not pay for.
6. Every day, legal citizens of the United States are victims of crimes (rape, murder, sodomy, identify theft, drugs, DUI … ) committed by illegal aliens; prosecuting and incarcerating them requires resources the illegals do not pay for.
Again, it's a shell game and the goal is control over people. Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell never saw an illegal alien they didn't just love; so long, that is, as the illegal didn't get so close to them that they might be sullied by the proximity!
Are the people pushing for amnesty for illegals insane? Isn't self-destructive behavior one of the symptoms of insanity? And isn't it self-destructive to allow illegals into this country, and to stay in this country, knowing full well the deleterious affect their being here has on this country?
And who but an insane individual would think up a scheme to tax the people for virtually every breath they take, for their very existence, which, I might add, they had no role in bringing about?
Recently, I suggested to both Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell that if they truly believe the global warming hoax behind the usurper's cap and trade bill (HR 2454), that they do what any decent human being would do and quit exhaling. So far, I've not heard that they've done that.
As such, it becomes readily apparent that they know full well that cap and trade isn't about the environment or global warming; that cap and trade is about government control over people.
Are they insane for supporting cap and trade? Let's put it a bit differently: would a sane person purpose or support legislation based on a hoax?
And what about the individual on whose behalf that legislation was written; who has supported it wholeheartedly: the usurper of the Oval Office, the occupier of the White House, who isn't sure which hospital in Hawaii he wasn't born at?
Is he any more sane than the legislation he supports?
Who, in their right mind, would
support the spending of money they don't have to spend?
2. support policies specifically intended to destroy people's lives and enslave them?
3. support the transformation of America from a constitutional republic to a participatory democracy such as the U.S.S.R. was?
4. stand before the American people and state that America is the greatest nation in the world, "help me change it."
5. travel about the world apologizing left and right for what he perceives are America's character flaws—freedom and liberty?
6. paint a target on the forehead of every American serving overseas by releasing classified information regarding terrorist interrogations tactics?
7. support legislation that will kill people in the name of cost savings?
8. do everything within their power to destroy the economy of the United States of America?
Is the usurper insane? I think the answer to that question is pretty obvious!
When one puts the ideology of the left in context, it becomes very apparent that those who pursue the leftist ideology are truly insane individuals.
This gives a whole new perspective to the claim that Washington, DC is an insane asylum and the inmates are truly running the asylum. They make the character of Jack Nicholson in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest look perfectly lucid!
The question is, why do the American people simply not fence DC in and keep the inmates from destroying the rest of the country?
Better yet, how about we give them a taste of their own medicine. Insane people, under universal health care, are deemed "useless eaters" and useless eaters are allowed to die to save money.
How can I say such a thing?
It's time people wake up to the reality. To quote Alan Stang's immutable laws of war:
Law One: If you don’t know you are in a war, you will lose.
• Law Two: If you don’t know you are in a battle to the death, you will die.

The usurper in the Oval Office, the occupier of the White House, and his minions in government, have declared war on the United States of America.
We have a choice; we can either fight to win or we can do nothing and lose our nation and our freedom.
