Is anyone surprised by the polical leanings of those supporting and those opposing the exceutive order?
Congress has been steadily losing it's power to the executive branch. Expedient, but not good.
When will the world learn that a million men are of no importance compared with one man? [Henry David Thoreau]
I'm not in the mood to defend this, as I don't know the details, but it seems really small potatoes compared to the NDAA.
Congress determines it.
Remember how the liberals cried and complained over the passage of the Patriot Act? Yet, their Messiah, Obama, has quietly renewed the Patriot Act twice.
"A Liberal is a person who will give away everything they don't own."
Do you have a link for that?
This is disturbing... as Lily said we are so used to giving up freedoms, we let this kind of infringement on our freedom slip past us like it's normal. I don't know why a President would preemptively do this when we are not in a state of war (immediate country, not including the quagmire in the Middle East). I don't care if the govt. thinks there's a good reason for this. I don't trust any administration to control all our resources. Period.
We've been telling you this for years but nobody listens. This nothing in comparison to other stuff I could point out over the last 10 years. The countless attacks on civil rights, and other abuses have come to a head in this time in this place. All the people who know this stuff are getting ready to throw down. Others are just waking up from 10 years of senseless existence to find out wow, I am really not free at all. Something is going to give.
These people you see filling sand bags outside their house and hording food are definitely in the know. Other people blame other things but react the same way. They know something is off. American society is in a state of nervous anxiety and most can't even point out why, but they're starting to figure it out, slowly.
