    What kind of situation would you be talking about? A gang of ganys going around beating up heterosexuals or something?

    Just for the record, Executive Orders can be revoked by another executive order.

So, bottom-line: whatever is still an Executive Order, can indeed be changed by another Executive Order.

    "Revoking An Executive Order

    In 1988, President Reagan banned abortions at military hospital except in cases of rape or incest or when the mother's life is threatened. President Clinton rescinded it with another executive order. A Republican Congress then codified this restriction in an appropriations bill. Welcome to the Washington, D.C. merry-go-round.

    Because executive orders relate to how one president manages his executive branch team, there is no requirement that subsequent presidents follow them. They may do as Clinton did, and replace an old executive order with a new one or they may simply revoke the prior executive order.

    Congress can also revoke a presidential executive order by passing a bill by a veto-proof (2/3 vote) majority. For example, in 2003 Congress unsuccessfully attempted to revoke President Bush's Executive Order 13233, which had rescinded Executive Order 12667 (Reagan). The bill, HR 5073, did not pass."

    So, are you trolling and flame baiting because you like it, or because you're a mod and can just get away with it?

    Don't like being shown to post as a hypocrite? Don't do it. Analogies are completely reasonable debate tactic. I like consistency. I call people out on it when I don't see it. I'll remember your post.

    I just like the fact that you agree that doing something just because they "had it coming" is the wrong move.

    Oh, I dunno, like when Perez Hilton discriminated against Carrie Prejean, because he didn't like the answer he got to his question. Like that.

    You're ok with that sorta thing?
