Obama “Teaching” Kids?

President Obama speaking to a group of school kids (8th graders I believe) was responding to a question inquiring into the difficulties of being president. He responded by whining about how he has to deal with congress and citizens that are divided in thought. He can’t just enact his ideas about Healthcare and budgets etc…

It is not the first time the President of the United States has complained about our divided government. It is exactly what our founders designed to protect us from people like the current president. The president also whined about how he has to follow our constitution which is ironic since he does no such thing. Whether it is going to war without authority (Libya), using TARP funds as a blank check, or attempting to force Americans to pay for health insurance or be fined in his Obamacare legislation, he has no actual understanding of the federal government’s role. Specific and limited is the intended scope of our federal government. It is mind boggling how far we have wandered from the original intent of our constitution.


Maine House Passes Tenth Amendment Resolution

This week, the Maine House Of Representatives voted 79-67, to pass a Tenth Amendment Resolution introduced by Representative Rich Cebra (R-Naples). The vote was almost party line, with all Republicans present voting for the Resolution and all but two Democrats present voting against. The two Democrats who voted in favor of the resolution are Representatives Stephen Hanley (D-Gardiner) and Michael Shaw (D-Standish).

Rep. Cebra has previously introduced a Tenth Amendment Resolution when the Legislature was under Democratic control, but it failed to make it out of committee.
