1 pen, 1 phone, that's all that's needed to rule.
You'd think that people would have had enough of silly [political threads].
But I look around me and I see it isn't so.
Some people wanna fill the world with silly [political threads].
And what's wrong with that?
I'd like to know, 'cause here I go again
my apologies to Paul McCartney :)
But I didn't know where to put [URL="http://news.yahoo.com/obama-won-39-t-wait-legislation-advance-2014-162325560.html"]this[/URL], and hadn't seen it anywhere else, so here I go.
[QUOTE]"We are not just going to be waiting for legislation in order to make sure that we're providing Americans the kind of help that they need," [Pres Obama] said.
"I've got a pen, and I've got a phone. And I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions ... and I've got a phone that allows me to convene Americans from every walk of life," [Pres. Obama] said.[/QUOTE]
Whoa, wait, what? Last I checked, the government was supposed to be about checks and balances, not Presidential dictates. I imagine many won't have a problem with these lines, after all, he just wants what's best, and those stupid Congress people just don't get it. Forget that each one of them was elected by some portion of the country, and that he was going to bring in a new era of bipartisanship (which is crazy in itself). But to say he is going to lead by executive orders, and his phone calls to a select variety of people (I don't think he will be talking with all 313 million citizens).
Isn't that an extremely pompous statement?
Isn't it an extremely dangerous winding road?
We don't need to win elections, we just need one guy to sit by his phone and use his pen.
Meanwhile asked about if he finished his review of the NSA - well "it's getting close", no need for the pen yet on that one.

"Rule of Law? We don't need no stinkin' Rule of Law."
Just b/c you don't see the bars on your freedom, it doesn't mean they don't exist.
