Starve? Lily, these are primarily the children whose parents receive food stamps and entitlements.

As much as I appreciate free babysitting services, taxpayers are stretched already and Obamacare taxes haven't even kicked in yet.

Many are struggling to pay for their own babysitting services much less someone else's. How is that fair to them?

So?

Liberals NEED a bigger government. How else can they impose their gay, Global Warming and racist agenda on those kids?

Young Mr. Cruz of Texas

For a new story, I went back through the transcripts of Ted Cruz's Supreme Court battles. For most of the aughts, Cruz was Texas's chief lawyer, and his wins in that job formed the narrative of his Senate campaign. Cruz reminded crowds that he "fought the U.N. and won" by getting SCOTUS to agree that the Geneva Convention didn't apply to foreign nationals wanting to wriggle out of death sentences. My basic finding: The manichean, listen-to-the-founders approach that does Cruz such good in the political arena often failed in court.

Frew v. Hawkins, for example, was a disaster for Cruz. The state had given him a weak case: It was arguing that federal requirements for improving health care didn’t apply to Texas, because of state sovereignty guaranteed by the 11th Amendment. Cruz’s own arguments foreshadowed some of the theories that would become conservative gospel in the Obama years. In 2004, they were met with a wall of laughter.

“I will point out if signing a consent decree is a waiver of 11th Amendment immunity or sovereign immunity, then plaintiffs' argument proves too much,” said Cruz.“It means every consent decree is utterly immune from Ex Parte Young. It means once a consent decree is there, the requirements of Federal law don't matter.”

“Only with the state attorney general,” joked Antonin Scalia.

LIBERALISM!!!

The solution is Conservatism.

Example:

Liberals force a HUD section 8 voucher on landlords. If landlords refuses to rent their nice properties to lazy ghetto liberal irresponsible givernment parasites then the parasite liberals can sue! So what the American visionary intelligent landlords do? They rise the prices away from the voucher program's reach. That way the parasites will not qualify to such a high level rent and the landlords get to keep their property from being destroyed by roaches literally, pun intended.

That causes the rent in places like Massachuset to be prohibitly high. Creating the need for more government roach nests, which keeps them poor.

The solution is Conservatism:

Texas! No more words needed!

Conservatism = PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY!!!

Let the PARENTS feed them and take care of them! New concept right?

Liberals ask: What is personal responsibility?

Answer: Parents taking care of their kids and kids of their elderly parents.

What if no one available?

Answer: Conservative churches who believe in a non-Liberal God, clinging to their guns and bibles like the Muslims in the Arab Spring, will provide for them against the Liberals wishes.

I got tired of doing judgeits one way since 2009, so I'm just being fair and doing the judgeits the other way now.

Funny how the lefties never complained before when I did the judgeits that favored them.

Leftists are the biggest whiners! Crybabies.

Whah! Whah!

I know and its been increasing ever since and G.W. Bush & the Republicans Compassinate Conservatism as they called it added 7 trillion dollars to the Federal Deficit in 2003 for the Entitlement Society(Medicare Part D) and none of them had ever paid for it who were part of the entitlement society and just added to the Federal Deficit.

Republican Deficit Hypocrisy

Remember the Medicare drug benefit?

The human capacity for self-delusion never ceases to amaze me, so it shouldn't surprise me that so many Republicans seem to genuinely believe that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. Perhaps at one time they were, but those days are long gone.

This fact became blindingly obvious to me six years ago this month when a Republican president and a Republican Congress enacted the Medicare drug benefit, which former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker has called "the most fiscally irresponsible piece of legislation since the 1960s."

Two wind turbines towering above the Cape Cod community of Falmouth, Mass., were intended to produce green energy and savings -- but they've created angst and division, and may now be removed at a high cost as neighbors complain of noise and illness.

"It gets to be jet-engine loud," said Falmouth resident Neil Andersen. He and his wife Betsy live just a quarter mile from one of the turbines. They say the impact on their health has been devastating. They're suffering headaches, dizziness and sleep deprivation and often seek to escape the property where they've lived for more than 20 years.

"Every time the blade has a downward motion it gives off a tremendous energy, gives off a pulse," said Andersen. "And that pulse, it gets into your tubular organs, chest cavity, mimics a heartbeat, gives you headaches. It's extremely disturbing and it gets to the point where you have to leave."

The first turbine went up in 2010 and by the time both were in place on the industrial site of the town's water treatment facility, the price was $10 million. Town officials say taking them down will cost an estimated $5 million to $15 million, but that is just what Falmouth's five selectmen have decided to move toward doing.

"The selectmen unanimously voted to remove them. We think it's the right thing to do, absolutely," Selectman David Braga said. "You can't put a monetary value on people's health and that's what's happened here. A lot of people are sick because of these."
