If you give a tennis player a tennis racquet…odds are that sooner or later they’re gonna hit a tennis ball with it. Likewise giving a bone to a dog…they just might gnaw on it. Or a bike to a kid…they just might ride it.

But when we give ridiculously UNconstitutional powers to the Federal Government, and they immediately promise to NEVER EVER use them, we should believe them…right? (a) then WHY do they want/need them if they’ll never EVER use them and (b) really?…they’ll never EVER use them??

A couple weeks ago Lord Obama used an Executive Order to pretty damned quietly give the Federal Government the power to detain U.S. citizens “indefinitely…without judicial review”. This on the heels of arguing for (and finally losing) the power to monitor the movements of EVERY citizen by putting tracking devices on their cars…without a warrant!

And now the U.S. Senate has passed and sent to the House a Transportation Bill that includes a provision giving the Internal Revenue Service the power to seize and retain the passport of U.S. citizens if they, the IRS, believe those people owe back taxes…no court ruling required.  In fact, without the citizens even being given the chance to prove they DON’T owe the taxes!

Of course, the IRS says they would “never EVER use this power”. Uh huh.

Yup, the United States IS being “fundamentally transformed”…and the government wants to make sure you stick around to, um, “enjoy” it!

    Likewise giving a dog to a 10 year old Obama…he just might gnaw on it.

    As seen on FB:

    Next excuse for no budget from Senate Dems: “My dog ate the budget then Obama ate my dog.”

    JM…you should do a whole thread on “Obama’s Favorite Dog Recipes”…heck, Obama may wind up on the Cooking Channel after we throw his worthless butt out of OUR house!

    p.s. I like these I just read:
    “Chicken Poodle Soup”
    “Chinese Chow Chow Mein”
    “Hound Cake”

    just great…Obama INSULTS Great Britain by siding with Argentian over the Faukland Islands (which he calles the “Maldives”…which confused the HECK out of India!…but I digress)

    NOW, the Leftist heading Argentina has nationalized the oil industry (exactly what Obama and Maxine Waters want to do here)

    I had the opportunity to visit East Berlin in the early 1980s. As the photo shows, the wall went down the middle of many streets. Made me appreciate what I have.

    JR you should probably link some the articles about it.

    BTW Dr. Dog in an early thread laughed at the prospect of state department employees getting caught up in such, apparently some percentage of 30,000 troops could be caught up as well.
