The most recent example is the head of the VA, Retired General Eric K. Shinseki.
This political appointment has led to the further decline of the VA and the subsequent coverups. Yet another scandal under obama's watch.
Speaking of which, why is it that the IRS and State Department only release the information that Congress requests after being sued by a third party under the FOIA?
It's not surprising that the majority of US Citizens would like to see a wholesale changing of the guard in DC.
Speaking of US Citizens, the sudden surge for amnesty for the illegal aliens at this time is, in my opinion, ill advised at best.
There is growing concern about the rights and benefits afforded to individuals whose first act in this country was to commit a felony. And obama's recent release of thousands of illegal aliens from prisons across the country doesn't help. The fact remains that the borders need to be locked down and the criminals deported or incarcerated before any discussion can be had regarding amnesty. Even then the most that should be done is a residency status with no right to vote in any elections, ever, and probation for criminal activity that would bring jail time and deportation. The children born after the individual earns 'resident' status could then be considered citizens with all the rights that status brings.
Speaking of children, as the curriculum for common core becomes more known outside the classroom it is becoming more apparent why our children are falling so far behind in the world academically. Change for the sake of change is rarely productive.
The examples of common core mathematics I have seen online prove this. The focus should be on learning the basics and how to apply them, not some convoluted logic sequence.
Speaking of convoluted logic, I have to u-turn back to obama. Now he plans on a summit for sports related concussions. Not sure where he finds the time between the poor economic condition of the US and the poor foreign relations with most of the known world. Wonder how he plans on mucking this up...
Speaking of mucking things up, tomorrow is Preakness day at Pimlico Race Course. California Chrome will be trying for the second jewel of the Triple Crown facing a smaller field of contenders. The weather was awful until around 10 am friday, so the condition of the track may or may not be too much of an issue. But being the conservative that I am I will be including Kid Cruz in any wagers I make.
Speaking of Cruz, ... Just kidding, back to work...
