We read last week the updated game hall ordinance for the city of La Feria. They now will charge a non-returnable application fee of $3,000 and a non-refundable license fee of $6,000 for administrative costs of investigation, inspection and licensing. Further, each gaming device earns the city an annual occupational tax of $15. Interesting.

The war goes on between the Republicans and Democrats in Congress. The Senate turned down the House-passed Cut-Cap-Balance bill only to now threaten with a widely antagonizing bill from the Gang of Six that professes to shrink spending while probably increasing taxes. The Senate bill is likely to be defeated, too, unless enough Republicans switch their votes to the Democratic hopes found in the Gang of Six proposal.

It is odd, but our Great Leader benefits no matter what happens. If the debt limit is not increased, he will blame the Republicans for any negative that happens. If the limit is increased, then he can continue the outrageous spending until the next limit is reached and we start the cycle all over again. If he cannot sign a debt limit bill without new taxes, then why is it that the House cannot sign a bill that has new taxes? The people most directly have elected their representatives in the House, according to the Constitution that clearly states that the House shall do the spending. The president is the last block against Congressional action. But Congress can still over-ride the president. Must all of our serious government action resort to this tactic by a weak president?

We must hope that our Democratic friends will soon see through the smoke and look beyond the mirrors. Certain congressional and administrative liberals and socialists seem bent on keeping the economy in the dumps, driving companies out of business, preventing job creation, shutting down energy production, keeping the dollar weak, running up even more debt and keeping as many of us as possible slopping from the government trough. Is that any way to live in a free society?

  • Why Shoot Up The School In Pakistan? Because Terrorism Works Like Hell December 18, 2014
    Just in case you had forgotten what a horrible sack full of human beings President George W. Bush once declared the Global War on Terror to snuff out, the Taliban has graciously offered us a reminder.

  • Hanukkah, Jeb Bush, and the Virginity of Mary December 18, 2014
    Yes, believe it or not, last night I covered all three of those topics. In the first segment, I explained what Hanukkah is. I covered a bit of ground on Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. Then I spent a pretty significant amount of time explaining why, if you are a Christian, the virginity of Mary is pretty fundamental to your beliefs. In fact, you probably | Read Mo […]

  • Visas, Hillary Clinton, and the Ecuadorean ‘alien smuggler.’ December 18, 2014
    I wonder if the New York Times is not entirely comfortable with the idea of a Hillary Clinton candidacy: “The Obama administration overturned a ban preventing a wealthy, politically connected Ecuadorean woman from entering the United States after her family gave tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic campaigns, according to finance records and government […]
