Just what part don't you understand?.....

An Empire just doesn't fall out of the sky. I believe Clinton showed the way when he broke the law by lying in court and kept his job. (all he had to do was pray to Jesus with Jesse Jackson and cry for forgiveness to the women's league of voters or something. No one knows what that was all about but it worked! )

After that criminal left office, the next President, Bush was untouchable as long as he played ball and went after our "enemies" who wanted to sneak on airplanes and run them into perfectly good buildings. so we would quit killing their friends and relatives for having the audacity to live on top of our oil.

Bush and his gang instituted the Patriot Act which means that if the government calls you a terrorist they can arrest and incarcerate you forever and confiscate all your shit! Not that robbing people's shit hasn't been done before, but the scope now is breath taking and it turns out, under the Oba mama's regime it is worse!

Next step is to confiscate your guns and steal your property to pay for it because every scumbag in Washington knows that our guns are to take them out if they get uppity.

But the big problem living in an Empire is the uncertainty involved. Do you expect to start a business if these guys can take it? Are you going to save a lot of money if the banks can hand it over to them because you wont vote correctly? And what happens if you don't rat out your nutty relatives who want to be left alone in the boondocks and play American?

Think you'll be safe? What if they steal your Medicare and SS checks? Think VA benefits are exempt? Or your home?

Re: Gun Control Through Democratic Executive Legislation? « Blog
Manuel, regarding Gun Control Through Democratic Executive Legislation?, I was recently browsing through the List of people pardoned by George W. Bush, as is my wont, and noticed this one: the pardon, on Jan. 1, 2009, of poor Charles Thompson Winters, who was sentenced way back in 1949. After 60 years in jail, Bush let him out. His offense? “Conspiracy to illegally export, and illegal exportation, of a military aircraft to a foreign country; 18 U.S.C. §§ 88 (1946 ed.) and 371, 22 U.S.C. § 452, and Presidential Proclamation 2776 (dated March 26, 1948).”

So the President has taken over the legislative function (making law, via Presidential Proclamation or Executive Order), judicial function (because of the “political question” doctrine or threats such as Court-packing or ignoring the Court (“John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it!“) or even arresting judges), enforcing it (it is the executive branch), and undoing it at will (via pardon or inaction), like an Emperor. (He can also make the equivalent of treaties without getting the Senate’s approval, by using “Executive Agreements,” and this can, possibly, effectively amend the Constitution via the Supremacy Clause—because the Bricker Amendment failed.)
