    Let Boehner sue and we'll see how America votes in November .
    So you would like to see America vote on whether the US Constitution is just a rag made of old paper?

    Well that too, but I believe he's going to increase the number of judges. At least that's what I heard on the radio this morning.
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    What Obama can do, and has been doing, is insuring that the laws already on the books are not enforced. That is why we have a country filled with illegals.

    90% of those who have been given a date to appear before an immigration judge don't show up and Obama knows it.

    That's what Obama plans to do with all of these underage illegal aliens. They will be given a date to appear before the court and released into our society and will go into hiding until they are awarded amnesty.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I love how progressives complain about income inequality of poor Americans, low wages and how we need to help out poor Americans. But they want to flood the legal labor pool in our country with 12-20 million plus people. I do not think they are aware of the fact that that the more people you have available to do a job the less valuable that employee becomes and that adding more people to the legal labor pool when there are millions of unemployed Americans ensures that those Americans will not be able to get jobs.Both of which will strain tax payer funded services for poor Americans.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    As you can see, by looking at the numbers, Obama is very modest. The question is, how much influence do these executive orders impose compared to the past?

    I think it is good that the American people are troubled by this. Hopefully one day the people will stop the "all of our computers broke down at the same time" stories from working, and stop the government from doing whatever they want to do. Because right now the government can do whatever it wishes, and it knows it. We can't trust people from the government to oversee itself; we have to as a people keep the government accountable.
    It's not the number of EO's that's the problem, it's what they do. I can shoot an entire truck load of AR-15 ammunition on my own farm and there's no problem, but if just one of those rounds gets out of my property limits and hits someone, then there's a problem.

    A President can issue an EO as long it stays inside his own legal power granted by the Constitution. The problem with many of Obama's EO's is that they have been fired outside of the power he is granted under the Constitution and hit the Congress and the American people right in the head.

    The GOP is just as good as the progressive establishment.
    That's who we have to live with though, is the two major parties. That's who will have to pass it through Congress. Assuming of course that there isn't a wave of 3rd party candidates that get elected (which is probably a safe assumption).

    I am helpless to disagree.
