I am sorry for being late with this post is late but I have been quite ill. Believe me I don’t think you want to know the details.
To begin with I was watching NOW with Alex Wagner on 7/9/2014 and became really confused. A Texas Repressive Julian Castro stated that it is imperative these children be deported, so they can be reunited with their loving parents. That it doesn’t matter what is going on around a child as long as that child is with a loving parents.
Then, I see an interview with a parent that came with one of the children. She brought her child here from El Salvador. This refugee told a reporter how they had to pay an existence tax to a Cartel that ruled the region her village was in. She told how her 8 year old daughter disappeared one day while out playing. Her husband having his legs crushed for daring to look for his little girl. Than about six months later Cartel toughs came into burst their home and executed their eldest son. Why? Their 12 year old had refused to become a servant. His Daddy said they were bad people. These monsters came again not 8 days later killed her husband for nonpayment of the existence tax.
Side-note: Existence tax is a fee villagers have to pay for the right to breath.
Other reporters told stories of toddlers were killed for no other reason than to test a gun. These inhuman creatures said it was to check if the gun had been properly repaired or to test a new guns. Sometimes, they would kill just for the fun of it. Some children were used as experimental animals to test the purity of their drugs. She told,
How boys and girls of all ages were being taken and sold to God knows what Fate. Men who in anger and frustration spoke of fighting back where hunted down and mutilated. This was done as a lesson to their village. The Refugee told the reporter that after her husband was killed. The creature who shot him told her she has 3 day to come up with the she owed in existence tax or her last child would be killed in front of her. So she took her last remaining child a 6 year old boy and fled north.
This is a good environment for a child? Even if a parent pleads and begs for their child to be taken to safety?
Again, I wonder? During World War II didn’t we accept refugee children from Britain? Was there not an extremely brave couple who rescued 50 children from the Jewish ghettos? Saving them from Nazi Ovens. Was it wrong to save them from the Ovens? Would it have been better to leave them there to die with their parents? Even though just about every parent pleaded and begged that their child be rescued?
I have heard many so stories of one or two heroes rescuing large numbers of children in need of leading them to safety sometimes here in the United States. Were they wrong? Did they do more harm than good?
It seems his highness King John Boehner is displeased. He claims his chief servant President Obama has overstepped the authority granted to him by the ruling caste. The Republican Party. He has committed this heinous crime by using powers granted to him under the Constitution of the United States commonly known as Presidential Executive order to create laws and policies republicans don’t like.
It also seems crazy republicans want you to believe President Obama either doesn’t have, or is abusing and or making more Executive Orders than any other president. That is very and I do mean very wrong. At the date of this writing President Obama was yet to issue the same number of Executive orders issued by President Bush or Regan.
While executive orders are considered federal law valid around the nation, there are 3 ways to overturn an executive order. 1st if congress could ever get its act together it could veto the order, 2nd the Supreme Court can overturn an executive order, (I have included an example in this post) finally the next president can terminate or rewrite an executive order. There are some orders which do have a built in termination date. Originally executive orders were limited to the administration of different governmental departments and how that department would deal with a federal law directly effecting department operations. Now, thanks to President G.W. Bush’s National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive (National Security Presidential Directive NSPD 51/Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-20, the powers of the executive order has greatly expanded. You see, prior to this directive a president could respond to a threat or danger with military force but after a period time the president would have to go before congress and ask for a declaration of war, if refused the president would have to bring the troops home. (Just so you know the presidential directive is not an executive order.) Directives can also be challenged like an executive order and can be renewed like an executive order. A few in congressmen did try to challenge but were overruled by their fellow congressmen. That’s how we got into the 10 year Iraq war and the power to declare war now resides with the president.
To make these changes permanent unchangeable law a senator or congressman must decide it is a good change and introduces a bill in support of the executive order or the president talks someone into introducing the bill. Than manages to get it through both houses so he can sign it the order will expire. Also the incoming president could renew or terminate an executive order if someone tells him about it or slips it in among a pile of other things requiring his signature. If none of this happens than the executive order will find its way into his or her ‘presidential library’. Where it will probably be forgotten.
Now the Supreme Court can override and or nullify of an executive order. Let’s look at executive order 10340 created by Harry Truman. This order expropriated and federalized the steel industry. Executive order 10340 was canceled by the Supreme Court in 1959.
Now there are federal laws that do have a time limit. President Obama created Protecting Tenants during Foreclose Act (P.T.F.A.) during his 1st term in office. The difference between an Act and an executive order is there was at least some congressional support. The P.T.F.A. dealt with a landlord tenant issue.
More Next Week
Let me start with the fact that there are two types of republicans. There are Republican’s who are defiantly old school republican. President Lincoln old school. They believe what you get in life depends on how much work and effort you put into achieving it. A lot of them have changed their name to Conservative.
Then there are crazy republicans, who seem to believe ‘if you were a good person would have been born rich. So if you are poor than you must be bad, and if you are bad it is God’s will you that you must be punished. Who am they to go against the will of God?’
So with the crazy republican war on people stupid enough to be born poor, I have begun to wonder if slavery and serfdom are far away. After all in the incredibly poor countries it is quite common for parents to sell their children into slavery. Telling themselves it is better than watching them slowly starve to death and that their master will at least feed them. And With the money they get from selling their child, for a while they can feed their remaining children.
You know some republicans have been quoted saying that serfdom isn’t slavery and that all Lords of the Manor are good managers. That all Lords are Good honest caring people that look after their Serfs. After all that’s what TV says and TV is always right isn’t it?
Now, lets get to the main question, what is Serfdom? That crazy republicans want to reduce us to. A Serf is a tenant who lives on land owned by Landlord. As a Serf you work for the Landlord and you don’t get to quit. As a Serf you are bound for life to the service of your Landlord. So are your children and your spouse. This means your Landlord decides where you will live, who or if you will marry, and what career you will follow. If you want an education that’s up to your Landlord not you. If you decide you want to move or change careers sometime during your serfdom you will have to get your Landlord’s permission. If you have a nice Landlord 10% of any money you make after all expenses have been deducted will go into yours pocket. The rest will go into your Landlord’s coffers. That is if you are allowed to keep any of the money. It’s more common for your Landlord to keep a 100% of whatever you make ‘after expenses’.
Let’s say you Landlord storms into your house looking for a toilet takes an unwholesome fancy to your spouse or one of your children. Guess what, you do not get to say no or throw them out, all you get to do is to smile as your Landlord takes your loved one and or children away to be used as your landlord pleases for as long as they please. After your loved one is gone you don’t get to call the cops and file kidnaping charges all you get to do is pray to God that your loved is not to badly damage. If by some miracle they are returned to you all you can do is hope they can forgive you for not protecting them.
But hey, you a free-born, you are not Slave. After all you can’t be bought or sold. Well At least not to your face. You see your Landlord can sell your services to another Landlord. Which means you are moving whether or not you want to. If you have a spouse and or children it is up to the Landlord which bought you if they will go with you, but hey you aren’t a slave.
