Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Wow...

I have been very busy over the past two weeks and been unable to post.  So, first of all, I'd like to wish all patriots out there the best of everything in the new year.  And now comes the wow part...

The impostor who is playing the part of the President of the U.S.A. has always displayed his gross disregard for the will of the majority of American people as well as our Constitution.  What he did yesterday in making "recess" appointments to the NLRB and the Consumer Protection Bureau goes well across the boundaries of acceptable thuggishness.

The founding fathers had the wisdom to provide for the separation of powers because they realized that in a healthy representative republic, no one branch of the government can be allowed to dictate its will over the other two.  It is as if they foresaw the coming of this Chicago gangsta in to power over two centuries later.

Several progressives I know told me yesterday that GWB, Clinton, and Reagan all made more recess appointments than Obama.  HOWEVER, none made any recess appointments when the Senate was in pro forma session as it is now!  This is unprecedented and a clear affront to the Separation of Powers Act as well as the congress as a supposedly coequal branch of the government.  As extension, it is an affront to the American electorate.

Do not expect the media to raise a peep over this incident (as they raised hell over Alberto Gonzales' firings of attorneys at the Bush Justice Department, of which he was completely exonerated later in 2010 as I knew he would be).  I do not expect Articles of Impeachment being drawn by Republicans either because they do not have the cajones to deal with this charlatan the way he should be dealt with. 

It will be up to the American people to throw this bunch out come next November.  The alternative is unthinkable since, without the possibility of re-election, Obama would truly complete what he started: the fundamental transformation of America.
