so he started out asking for 2 billion dollars...
but hop, skip and jump across the border to today...
let's make the deal at nearly FOUR!
He's asking Congress for 3.7 billion dollars.
But let's be clear -- it may appear to be an asking of Congress, but he's doing the taking from the pockets of the American people. And it may as well be considered a direct hit.
So -- IF this situation were all about dollars and sense -- the president should be doing his pleading for aid directly with the administrations of the countries from where these people have come, as in president to president, mono y mono.
Which is funny, if you really think about it.
"Mono y mono" actually means hand to hand combat, without weapons.
The message on the day in America has been reduced to this: mono y mono.
America is under attack, under assault from within, with the infantry coming from across many borders with no end, and no light, in sight.
The recolonization of America has begun; while it's financial support and community organization is fully supplemented, integrated under the fraud of Obama's health care law, the Affordable Care Act.
Supplemental Reading Required: See Casey B. Mulligan, from last fall, here. And then read Joseph Rago's double down on Mulligan, The Economist Who Exposed Obamacare.
Obama's War carries a brand new meaning now.
The redistribution of wealth, along with the recolonization of America, mono y mono, will be the means to the end.
Under this kind of attack, no weapons are necessary, as the great humanitarian need reigns supreme and makes for an easy appeal.
Folks, the thing is -- we've been set up.
If President Obama was being truthful when he tells the women and children not to come, he would have the National Guard or the Army or the Marines on the border within a nano-second, you know...in a mono y mono kicked up kind of way. But noooooooo -- he isn't defending our borders and this country....
We find this president re-defining the assault on the border, re-thinking the billions he needs, and re-imagining his new America and realizing just how easy it is all coming together, full circle, mono y mono, under the guise of American compassion and exceptionalism. It's what we do.
And don't look now, but the progressive think tanks, community organizers, Utopian dreamers, socialists and Marxists alike, from sea to shining sea, are tripping through the prairies now.
It's just like that liberal professor, rewriting the meaning of The Declaration of Independence. Did you hear about that?
Here you go -- supplemental reading, take two -- for a discussion on A Period in Question...[yes, double entendre intended]
Danielle Allen says, “The logic of the sentence moves from the value of individual rights to the importance of government as a tool for protecting those rights."
But let's circle back to Casey B. Mulligan for a minute.
Last fall, he gifted America with an analysis on Obamacare, beginning like this:
A new wave of redistribution will arrive in America on Jan. 1, primarily thanks to the. The president's health-insurance plan forces those who hire, work and produce to pay full price for health care, while creating generous discounts for practically everyone else.
This second redistributionist wave of the Obama era will follow a first wave of tax hikes, additional unemployment benefits, food-stamp expansions, waived work requirements for welfare benefits, etc. These measures were supposed to be temporary, intended to help people cope with the recession. The recession officially ended in mid-2009, but many of the administration's measures continue.
Regardless of whether redistribution is achieved by collecting more taxes from families with high incomes, levying employment taxes on businesses, providing more subsidies to families with low incomes, or all of the above, an essential consequence is the same: a reduction in the reward for working. In a National Bureau of Economic Research paper issued in August, I quantify the combined effect of the two redistribution waves and higher payroll taxes on the financial reward for working.
But I digress.
Obama has decided he can use the military resources to house and care and indoctrinate new refugees...but he can't actually put troops on the border?
Mono y mono. It's on.
Without lifting a weapon, without congressional approval, and jeopardizing everything by way of manufacturing an humanitarian crisis, masterminding the civil unrest afoot, while demanding economic sanctions on the American people -- he has nearly completed the dreams of his father like the good son.
It's just another day and another Mission Accomplished moment for the president.
But it's a sad day for America because most Americans are not aware of the unintended consequences of the expatriation of an entire nation at once, mono y mono.
Make it a Good Day, G
