    It's perfectly normal to get upset when you've been embarrassed so easily on a subject you hold so near and dear. I mean honestly, why would you make up that you know how the Founding Fathers felt? It was dumb, and you put yourself in a losing situation.

    You're overstating the reality, but I do expect them to go after the guilty, yes.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Were there other contractors available to do the same work? You seem to be an expert on this case although I doubt it as you cut and pasted what you want to believe but didn't read the entire article or want to believe that the illegal's didn't enhance Wal-Mart's bottomline
    It's still cheaper than paying a living wage to workers.

    Have you been keeping up with current events? At all? Where in the Constitution does the federal government get the power to force us to buy health care? Where does the president get the power to make laws? Or decide not to enforce laws? Or do things (like make laws) that are reserved for another branch of government? are you familiar with "separation of powers"?

    I must admit, I am not familiar with executive privilege, and I won't begin to defend it. It's been around, and it's been used, but I don't know where it comes from and how it came into existence. The Affordable Care Act has, so far, been upheld as Constitutional.

    Can you tell me when the civil war ended?

    Can you tell me when the Progressives had their great victory in the direct election of Senators?

    Can you tell me how many years, feel free to round to decades if that is easier for you, passed between those two events?

    Executive privilege just means the Executive can keep his deliberations secret.

    Executive orders, when used to control and run the executive branch, are perfectly legitimate tools.

    However, using an executive order to create a new law or to change an existing law is unconstitutional and should cause a crisis. By failing to stop The One on the golf course early the Congress has created an imperial presidency, currently controlled by a lawless, megalomaniac.

    Yes correct, I mean executive orders not privilege.

    The feds have a habit of shaking down corporations that do not give enough to the politicians.

    The guilty are in government.

    No, I think that is more hyperbole on your part.
