It’s hard not to snicker at the outrage over the latest in a string of broken Obama promises. Anyone capable of learning English should have known the president would not be able to sprinkle his magic amnesty dust in a way that would give everyone what they expected. Foolish hopes had grown for too long. Cutting illegal immigrants out of the midterm plan was a shrewd calculation our grabby, non-citizen friends and neighbors should have seen coming.
As a veteran of some major league schoolyard bullying and more than one broken bone because of it, I can attest that bullies are a bad thing. Bullying should not be tolerated. I can get behind anti-bullying efforts even when they come from Washington, but here’s the problem. Obama’s government has become the biggest bully in America, a bad example to kids who need to learn how to get things done without coercion.
What better deception to enforce government control than convincing the people that tightening the screws on states is for their protection? The pursuit of government control over states is liberal hypocrisy at its best. We have created a vicious spiral of spending and dependence by making sure that everything begins and ends in Washington, especially when it comes to providing education and health care.
If you expect the government to protect you from cyber crimes, you better stop reading this. Go cut up your credit cards. You have no business using them.
The Justice Department put us on notice after the electronic information of millions of Americans was put at risk by the holiday cyber attack on Target. Washington has been using the escalation of cyber crimes and computer security problems to threaten us with everything from bad credit to death and destruction (see: The Real Cyber Threat Is From Politicians and Bureaucrats).
