    Actually, no it's not.

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I personally think it is a ploy, playing dumb...You know full well why these 5 were held, and what their propensity is. Hell, even Obama knows. The difference is he doesn't care if it causes American's harm, or death in the future, because he's betting that he'll be out by then...It was a political gambit that is backfiring on him.

    Obama has also ordered members of the military to violate standing military regulations more than a few times.

    There's a process for changing military regulations and Obama doesn't know how the process works.
    Barrack Obama naturally had no military experience, no managerial experience (even on the lowest level), never hired anyone, never fired anyone, never signed a pay check, and in fact never did anything of consequence in his life. And yet, despite this lack of accomplishment, the electorate decided he should be President - twice. It's hard to blame Barrack Obama for this when it was there for everyone to see..

    We no longer properly vet our Presidents anymore...What's worse is even when we know we've made a horrible mistake, we don't hold them to account either...Nope, we are a nation of pussies now.

    Rather than take Obama's "suck it up, and salute" bull ****, we should tell him back, just "suck it."

    But Obama don't trust the military and ignores them.

    Well, that what Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said.
    Not trusting the military is always a wise policy for the leader of a civilian government.

    And the same people who supported Barrack Obama, and were offended by any vetting or background checks, now want Hillary Clinton as a candidate. What's happened to this once great nation?

    I really do believe in the American people and the whole idea of e pluribus unum as one of history's great achievements, but electing BHO to a second term was certainly a shock to the system.

    The Military seems to have acted with greater regard for the people and the Constitution than the President. The greatest threat to the American people right now is the militarization of their civilian forces.

    Military and all of its agencies act like most public service unions do, down to having their own lobbying presences through various political organizations. No reason for the guy who has to look after *EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING* to trust them or any other particular group to know what's best for society.

    It obvious that 52% of the electorate didn't see it.

    And what happens if the guy who has to look after *EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING* is a lying incompetent? What next?
