    Who cares? No one is defending those actions and l imagine most of us weren't born or very young when a lot of those went down. For example, six of those were before my time, and all but four of those that are left happened when I was still a minor. I guess what I'm saying is, I don't give a ****.

    And yet... that's pretty much what will end up happening. Republicans don't have the supermajority required to get one of their bills to the president without him threatening to veto. So, if Democrats play their cards right, they can get Republicans to play nice like they were before the election and live up to their ideas of giving illegal immigrants a way to get right with the law.

    Why bother having a Congress? All we need is our king.
    Remember King George III in the 1770's? How'd that work for us? Oh wait....

    As a member of that generation, I sadly have to agree. We have not been good custodians of that with which we were entrusted. That's pretty apparent and also pretty appalling.

    You do realize that not being born or being very young when those EOs were written doesn't change the point of the post right? Anyways.

    Do you ask Hatuey for the specific sources for all this?
