He Just Doesn't Get It

Sociopath. That was yesterday's comment, and it's still true. He just can't seem to get it.

In what has been an unmitigated string of Orwellian-named Acts of Congress, the latest to fall victim to the Baby Doc Pen of Fascism is the so-called Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act.

Oh, he signed it all right, but with yet another in a long line of infamous "signing statements" for which he is now notorious, saying the he is, once more, above the law.

What's worse, he's actually proud of the fact that he and he alone is the final abiter (the "decider") of what part of the law he -- and by extension the entire Executive Branch, including the Justice Department -- can blithely ignore.

Now the ball is in the court of the Dems to draw a line in the sand (mixed metaphor, but you know what I mean). Let's hope that their recent victory will allow them to finally grow some spine and stand up to the little tyrant.

Enough is enough. Call or write your Senator and your representative in Congress and ask them to demand answers from the White House that will explain and defend this action.

As members of a democratic society, we can expect no less.

"Call or write your Senator and your representative in Congress and ask them to demand answers from the White House that will explain and defend this action."

I still only received one reply from the two Senators and one Representative I wrote regarding the Military Commissions Act of 2006! And it was a long winded, somewhat sidestepping response at that....

I can write and write and write until my hand falls off. As much effort and time that I put into these letters, I doubt very much that anything will change...

Some folks have a lot to say about my half empty glass. Me, I am just looking for the tequila bottle to fill the fucker back up.

Cheers!!

I am thinking that this is wrong. Yet again the US government is trying to make itself like a private company.

Private companies do not deliver a service to the citizens of the US, they make money. If we run our government so lean that it can compete financially with the private companies, it will fail in times of emergencies to provide the service that is needed.

We should all be concerned with down sizing government employees and shipping jobs overseas. In the time of disaster, be it a hurricane, or be it the bird flu we need to have some redundancies in our government to assure the services are delivered to the people in which it serves.

"jean-claud", huh?
He's the one with a cheese-eating surrender-monkey name and he's calling YOU a traitor?

Jae--
Even though you will 99 times out of 100 get back a bland and tepid response, if you get one at all, I know a couple of politicians at the national level personally, and I can tell you that they do take an interest in what people are saying, and if enough people contact them on any given issue, they will react, like all politicians, to "the will of the people".
On most issues, anyway.
Thanks for the comments on the book. I'm glad you like it.
