    That’s what happens when the inmates at the asylum get tools…

    The thought of one man running this country by fiat makes me very uncomfortable.

    First, what he can do is limited, which he well knows. Second, if the Congress were doing its job, this would not be necessary. Third, you seem to forget the Supreme Court, which is not tilted in favor of the president’s party.
    Please keep your cool, especially since you are one of the rational conservatives, and we need you posting here for good conversation.

    Not sure why everyone gets so bent out of shape about executive orders. Congress has 90 days to vote to overrule the orders. Congress still has the last say. They would just have to stand up and say they don’t want employees of federal contractors to have the higher minimum wage, which is probably irrelevant anyway, since most contractors are higher skilled workers already getting more than $10.10/hr already.

    This is why the founders gave each branch of government its own powers. When one branch wishes to block everything, another branch can do an end run around them.

    You might want to address that to the borderline flaggable post by Dr. Warbucks.

    No, I wouldn’t. I am a realist, and I recognize the difference between the rational and the irrational. Posts such as you note simply get flagged. There is no point in trying to open a discussion with some people…

    I was wondering your take on the SOTU address? I haven’t seen the movie you cite, so I haven’t a good basis for what your point is. (I’m not real good on movies because of sensory problems I have.)

    " I truly do not get it.“

    Excellent. Recognizing the problem is an important first step.

    ”Checks and balance is to be messy and slow by nature but the President is not “chained” he was to be apart of the process?“

    Funny, I don’t remember you complaining like this when Bush was issuing executive orders and signing statements at a rate higher than Obama’s.

    ”Obamacare he got what he wanted."

    So why don’t we have single payer, Harley? Were you really that oblivious during the year plus that Obamacare was stripped of so much, in a fruitless attempt to appease Republicans?

    OK, but it would take more than a wood chisel and claw hammer to cut through that chain.

    mskemple, thanks for the explanation. I really ought to try to be more into the main stream of American culture, but at my age…I fear you are right about the balance of power becoming unbalanced (altho’ I’m not sure who has the power except it ain’t me!). As my old granny used to say, there’s more than one way to skin a cat, so maybe those of us with ideas, even if they’re different ideas, can come up with something that will work better than what’s happening now.
