592.) In the porkulus bill gave the Department of Energy $1,200,000,000.00 (1.2 billion), $60,000,000.00 of that money was used to purchase “advanced-technology research instruments” to be used to study the dangers of climate change. This isn’t about climate change though, this is about where some of that money went. Some of these instruments where sent to forgien countries, to create jobs in forgien countries.
593.) President Barack Obama is abusing his assumed Executive Powers yet again. The Commander and Cheif has signed an executive order (basically creating law without going through the law making body…. doesn’t sound like a Republic to me), and this executive order creates an Office of Diversty. The duty of this office created without any say so from your elected representatives is in the Administrations own words, “Eliminate demographic group imbalances in targeted occupations and improve workforce diversity. To attain this, special initiatives have been created targeting specific groups, including Hispanics, African Americans, American Indians, women and gays and lesbians”. Have they ever stopped to wonder, what if the reason their numbers are lower is because
A. they are not trying to get those jobs,
B. they are not as qualified as an evil white straight man,
Does discrimination exist in this world, unfortunatly the answer is yes. Does trying to create a false vision of equality, creating an artifical balance bring about the end of discrimination, no. This executive order only applies to the federal government, but at teh end of the day it is little more than a political stunt. The President is trying to secure his base, by pandering to the disires of minority political groups, which worked well for him in the past. At its core, this is an act of discrimination/racism in itself. Hiring people because they are black, hispanic, Gay, or Muslim instead of based on the content of their character, or their qualifications in the field they are trying to get a job, is no different than refusing to hire someone because they are black.
