“A country, after all, is not something you build as the pharaohs built the pyramids, and then leave standing there to defy eternity. A country is something that is built every day out of certain basic shared values.”
– Pierre Trudeau
[Joseph Philippe Pierre Yves Elliott Trudeau] (1919-2000) Prime Minister of Canada (1968-1979, 1980-1984)

This is a quote I can both agree with and worry about. Those of us who are working or who want to work are not “sharing values” with those content to be on the dole, on the government tit, and it seems that segment is growing daily as the “fuzzies” the “libs” continue to buy votes with handouts of OUR money. Some things seem to be progressing, such as the new Florida law requiring those on welfare to take a drug test. GO FLORIDA! And the Supreme Court upholding Arizona’s right to check a person’s citizenship when they’re stopped by police.
Then our administration tries something so blatantly against our Constitution as removing 287G from Arizona’s rights. This from the ICE webpage:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the largest investigative agency in the Department of Homeland Security, enforces federal immigration laws as part of its homeland security mission. ICE works closely with federal, state and local law enforcement partners in this mission.
The 287(g) program, one of ICE’s top partnership initiatives, allows a state and local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The state or local entity receives delegated authority for immigration enforcement within their jurisdictions.
So now, in the eyes of the federal government Arizona has no authority for immigration enforcement? But New Mexico, California, and Texas…and all other states do? The fed is saying if you want to use the Supreme Court to overturn what we want, if you want to comply with the ruling of the Supreme Court, we will punish you. I find it very interesting, and I’m sure the Supreme Court justices do as well, that Obama is trying an end run to punish a state who’s only following the courts interpretation of the Constitution. Then again, time and time again, the Obama administration seems to think the law of the land is something they can ignore. Something they are above.
If there’s one value we in this country should share, it’s a reverence for the document that’s the foundation of all that’s made us great, all that’s made us the go-to country in the world. And the Supreme Court is the supreme interpretation of that document. There’s no question in my mind that there’s one citizen who doesn’t share that particular value and that’s Barack Hussein Obama. He demonstrates it day after day after day. Sorry, Mr. President, but I don’t share your values. I comply with the rulings of the Supreme Court.
