    Tis the week before Christmas and all through the land the bills, policies, and judicial appointments sweep the halls of Justice.
    That is until the scrooges try to takeit all back.

    Well, Lisa, how come CONGRESS doesn’t do something- something positive I mean – something besides simply opposing MOST ANYTHING the President says or does?
    Is it because he’s Kenyan? Or Socialist? Or some extreme form of DICTATOR who paralyzes RepubliCons simply by putting pen to paper?
    Lisa, how come CONGRESS doesn’t do something??

    People should go look at the childhood cartoon about how a bill becomes a law.

    Yeah, but most children grow up. I said most. They learn to work with others and cooperate. They learn altruism instead of selfishness. They learn compassion for others, that communities and their citizens matter. They learn that in order to achieve great things they may have to give up some small matters and WORK with those they don’t especially like. The learn that in order for all to live in harmony all have to give some for others to be able to have any.
    The rest grow up to be republicans.

    That Schoolhouse Rock video doesn’t show filibusters, anonymous blocks. a party meeting on inauguration night to discus how they will stop the new president from doing ANYTHING he wants (even if THEY proposed it in the first place), or that same party claiming “priority is jobs” before the election (2010) and then saying “priority is anti-Obama” after the election.
    Obama asked Congress to do something about immigration but they wanted to repeal ACA (over and over and over again).
    Truman called the Congress in his time “do-nothings” because they only passed 900 bills. The latest one only passed 200 (and many of those were pretty lame).

    But I suppose you were okay when St. Ronnie issued his 381st E.O. but were enraged when Clinton used 364? And I’m sure you were okay with gold ol’ georgie boy using 291? Just admit it, the only problem with President Obama using E.O.’s is that you don’t like him and by extension you don’t’ like them. Because you don’t like him anything he does is automatically bad but because you like republicans, anything a republican does is okey-dokey all-righty fine by you. You see, President Obama is doing nothing that previous presidents didn’t’ do too. The only problem is the irrational and virulent hatred the right has for the man. We can only speculate as to the reason for the unfounded hatred, since he is really a CONservative pretending to be a Democrat.

    The first step to getting help, and you need it, is admitting you have a problem. And your problem, believe it or not is hyper-partisanship. You claim to hate and have said bad things against the republicans, but you sure toe their party line and feed their agenda here in these pages.While I on the other hand simply point out the foibles and faux pas contained in the the CON-(men)-servative’s lies, misinformation and innuendo laden propaganda that is parroted by the trolls and weak minds every day. And I have posted dissent with this President, that is fact.

    Lisa, should government just stop completely because the Republicans are acting like children?
    Please say which executive orders are bad and why.
    I hope that one day one of your children come to you to tell you why your POV is so wrong.

    Yeah, so how’s the ObamaCare premium increase workin’ out for ya? Or are you a member of a public service employee (i.e., “government”) union that got an exemption?

    Your first half is wrong. I voted for the man. I grew to dislike his methods.

    I also hated Bush and really hated Reagan (although he must be given credit for some things)

    I don’t get to spout my radical left leanings on some things because it it so rarely displayed in these leftist toons.

    As i have said before. I am for universal health care, foriegn aid, pro-choice, pro-gay, would like to nationalize oil and some other natural resources.

    So, a right-wing nut might think I’m a lefty loon. Just like a left wing nut might think I’m a neantherdal.

    Seems a few would rather have a king than a president constrained by the constitution. I’m not sure people understand the constitution was made to limit government and the bill of rights only names rights, it doesn’t “give” rights.

    yes, a childhood cartoon is needed for child-like minds.

    Actually the House has done.a number of things. There are approx 300 bills that came out of the house and are sitting in the desk of Harry Reid, the obstructionist.

    The ones that are bad are the ones (especially those on immigration that usurp the duties of congress) that do harm to the United States. He took an oath to protect the constitution and to comply with the law. He has violated this oath every time he changed law or wrote new law on his own.

    You could move to Russia and have all of the things that you want.

    @Jeff H

    Premiums have gone up at a much lower rate than they did BEFORE ACA.
    Or are you so hateful and math-challenged that you don’t understand that?
