Defund Obama

What if we just de-funded the President and Vice President and left everything else in place? 

1. Nobody would miss either one.

2. Michelle wouldn't be stuck with the burden of being First Lady anymore.

3. Since we're getting rid of both black and white, it wouldn't be racist.

4. We could do tours of the White House and could sell sleep-overs in the Lincoln bedroom. Think about it. Using the White House as a B & B would help reduce the national debt and without Obama pushing for a trillion a year more than we take in, we'd be on the 'road to recovery'.

5. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel could take over executive functions. He's not too bright but he loves to party. And that may be enough until we can manage a new election for president.

6. Putin wouldn't have his whipping boy anymore.

7. Without Obama, it would be "healthcare" and could go back to being the way it was before.

8. The Chicago White House would have to go back home and make people's lives miserable back in Ill. (ill)

9. Nobody knows what Biden does anyway.

10. The Marines that hold the umbrella for Obama could go back to being Marines.

The Shut-Sown/Slim-Down

The political hype in Washington simply underscores the same level of maturity that many people experienced in junior high school.
(Fox News) The so-called government shutdown which started last week affects just 17 percent of the entire federal government, according to a recent spending calculation.  
The numbers are based on information requested from the Senate Budget Committee, as well as data from the Obama administration and the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office. A Senate Republican source verified the calculation to, after it was first reported by The Washington Examiner.  
The calculation that 83 percent of the government is still running shows how some parts of the government -- unless the country loses its ability to borrow -- simply cannot be shut down, even if Congress is unable to agree on a spending bill as happened last week. 
A lot of the fight has to do with the government's move to take over 20% of the national economy through ObamaCare and it's follow-on, the single-payer system where government controls all healthcare. 

Racial Slime Pit

The mainstream media elites,  unable to defend the ObamaCare scandal -- where you can't keep your own insurance in many cases, or your own doctor -- have resorted to the race card. Their contention, "If you don't like ObamaCare, you're racist." Unable to defend the administration's policies on the merits, they've got nothing left to fall back on but race baiting.
ABC News anchor Cokie Roberts. Speculating about Hillary Clinton's White House hopes, Roberts said the former first lady will have an easier go of things because she's white, suggesting critics of President Obama are motivated by racism. "Some of this Tea Party anger is racist," she proffered on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" without offering a shred of evidence. "And having a nonblack person on the ticket will defuse it to some degree."
If you are uncomfortable with the current Washington DC trend toward socialism, you are by default, racist.

Obama is still the same biracial person he was in 2008; nothing's changed physically. What is apparent is his complete lack of intellectual integrity. His extremist policies and actions haven't matched his moderate rhetoric. The Benghazi Scandal, Fast and Furious Scandal, IRS Scandal, etc., an attorney general held in contempt of congress, and an administration that has been a game of musical chairs because nobody can stand to be around Barack have become the hallmarks of a failed presidency.

(IBD) "A growing number of white independents who put Obama over the top, believing he was the centrist he advertised, now dislike his policies. Nobody can call them racist. They don't care for the socialist white half of the president any more than his socialist black half."

Californian Victory for Islam?

People do what they do and one can hope that whatever they do makes them and their families happy. In an odd shift, trying to pander to FFFM/MFM, etc. marriages and to Muslim families who practice polygamy, Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a piece of legislation into law last Friday allowing children in the state to have more than two legal parents.

The measure, authored by Democratic state senator Sen. Mark Leno, was aimed at upgrading the law to reflect supposed modern changes in the family structure. Islamic polygamy isn't precisely modern, but California and its legislators aren't precisely grounded either. Leno said, “Courts need the ability to recognize these changes so children are supported by the adults that play a central role in loving and caring for them,” Sen. Mark Leno (D), who authored the bill, said.
(LA Times) SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Friday that will allow children in California to have more than two legal parents, a measure opposed by some conservative groups as an attack on the traditional family.

Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) said he authored the measure to address the changes in family structure in California, including situations in which same-sex couples have a child with an opposite-sex biological parent.

The law will allow the courts to recognize three or more legal parents so that custody and financial responsibility can be shared by all those involved in raising a child, Leno said.
Generally Islam allows a man to have four wives at the same time and an unlimited number of concubines. The California law does not change the existing bigamy statute that prohibits marriage to more than one spouse at a time, but now children in California can have more than two legal parents. It raises the question of how long it will be before California legalizes polygamy and changes or repeals the bigamy statute. 
California Penal Code Section 281. (a) Every person having a husband or wife living, who marries any other person, except in the cases specified in Section 282, is guilty of bigamy. (a misdemeanor)

The joint victories for Islam, for lesbian couples (with an outside baby daddy), and for polyamorous couples (MFM, FMF) would tend to encourage non-traditional families. Then again, defining "traditional" in a state like California that revels in the weird has become increasingly difficult.
