College financing is a scam…and it automatically puts parents as co-signers if said parents fill out FASFA.
The gov’t has now made education a total financial debt trap not just for the students but the parents as well. IF you fill out the FASFA form you are co-signing for your child’s student debt. since there is a high high chance of default the gov’t can(and will) come after the parents income…however that… Read more

Eric has not… Read more

How many Constitutional violations must we put up with? Unfortunately there is not a single senator who will impeach Obama.

Karl denniger has a good breakdown of this issue when it comes to Ted Cruz. first there is this question about his citizenship: There’s a clean question on the table regarding dual citizenship for persons born in Canada prior to 1977 (when they changed their law to officially recognize dual nationality.) Prior to that date, with few exceptions,… Read more

Why? Immigration as defined in the constitution is one thing solely handled by the federal gov’t.

I am tired of seeing Obama take every incident of shootings to scold this country on the exercising of our rights under the Constitution even though more and more of us are actually giving up those rights.

That nationwide measels outbreak? Try half of them are the illegals Obama is using to fix the 2016 election.
In other words of the people who got sick roughly half were illegal invaders. In point of fact only one quarter were intentionally-unvaccinated kids who were here in America legally, either as citizens or otherwise. 43%, or nearly double the number, were “unknown or undocumented” as to their vaccinated status, which means they weren’t here in the country legally.

I cannot help but wonder what the standard is that triggers the martial-law response we’re seeing in New England.
