Of the 55% of Swiss who voted in today’s elections, 76.3% rejected a referendum proposal as proposed by trade unions for a $25 per hour national minimum wage.

In her opening statement on ‘Justice’, FNC’s Judge Jeanine Pirro exposes and defines Barack Obama’s continued and unchallenged abuse of executive power.
The dip wads in Congress fear the Communist establishment and being called racist more than they do Constitution loving Americans who elected them.
Message to Congress: Get over it and do your jobs. This is not about race but it is about right, wrong, justice, liberty and the rule of law.
Right the wrongs NOW!
Impeach, indict and incarcerate Obama, Holder, Pelosi and Reid…..just for starters. Oh yes and take that wench Jarrett too. Enough of the tyranny, i.e., the imperial presidency.
