A country in distress

August 17, 2012
The Advertiser-Tribune

Several people have asked me why I have lowered my American flag to half-staff. "Did someone die?" they ask. I tell them, several weeks ago, in the span of only about one week, at least three outrageous acts took place. President Barack Obama used his executive privilege to prevent Attorney General Eric Holder from having to divulge his part (and others) in the "Fast and Furious" scandal. Look it up. That's the name given to the scandal where our own weapons were used by the Mexican drug cartel to murder our own border patrolman. Also, the Supreme Court upheld the illegal health care act. It ruled that the individual mandate part could be considered constitutional as a tax, but not as part of the commerce clause (even though the Dems presented it as not a tax). The third thing which happened is that, even though the Supreme Court upheld the "show me the papers" part of the Arizona immigration law, the Obama administration immediately declared it would severely limit federal enforcement cooperation with local and state authorities to do exactly that.
