Don't say the courts do nothing.  All the liberal federal judges overrule every common sense law that gets passed, even those voted on by the public.  Single federal judges have way to much power.

I stand corrected Blue2.

You are correct.

The Courts make laws.........  as does the Executive......  while the Legislature sits around and has hearings and go on talk shows and run for re-election and line their pockets.

That doesn't sound like the Constitution as I was taught it - but then I am just a naive rube.

Took this paragraph from an article by Liberal Columnist Ron Fournier in the Liberal National Journal

I share this email to make the broader point and to offer a disclosure: In the 18 months since I began
writing columns focused on the presidency, virtually every post critical of Obama has originated from
conversations with Democrats. Members of Congress, consultants, pollsters, lobbyists, and executives
at think tanks, these Democrats are my Obama-whispers. They respect and admire Obama, but believe
that his presidency has been damaged by his shortcomings as a leader; his inattention to details of governing;
his disengagement from the political process and from the public; his unwillingness to learn on the job; and
his failure to surround himself with top-shelf advisers who are willing to challenge their boss as well as their
own preconceived notions.

“they respect and admire Obama, but”

After the “but” they go on to explain what a failure Obama is as a President. Well then, on what basis
is it that they “respect and admire” him? Is it the fact that a smooth talking Marxist scam artist with
a swagger became President? Well, I do have to admit that is pretty incredible, but it reflects poorly
on their judgement and character. There is no way this man was qualified to be President. Being articulate,
black, and cool isn’t much of a resume for a President of the United States.

Maybe the little story i found about the Post Turtle fits in this topic too.

A Post Turtle...

While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his role as our president.The old rancher said, 'Well, ya know, Obama is a
'Post Turtle''.  Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him, what a 'post turtle' was.
The old rancher said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top,
that's a 'post turtle'.  The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor's face so he continued to explain.
"You know he didn't get up there by himself,
he doesn't belong up there,
he doesn't know what to do while he's up there,
he's elevated beyond his ability to function, and you just wonder what kind of dumb *** put him up there to begin with."
Best explanation I've heard yet of Obama.

I don't know about anybody else, but it seems to me things are spinning out of control
in this country. What path are we taking? A "can do" America, or one that rouses itself
to go to the mailbox to see if their government check has arrived.

I agree with some that it is only going to get worse no matter who is in charge

You would think that the Obama administration would be absolutely freaking out with all the negative things
exploding all around the them, but I'd don't think so. As a matter of fact, I believe the administration brain
trust could very well be looking for even more leftist outrages to heap on the current inferno, as per Cloward
and Piven. Overload the system to the point of chaos and then step in to restore order. How else do you
explain it? I mean think about it. Have you ever in your lifetime seen as much turmoil going on in this country
as there is now?

obama and his band of arrogant leftists have a plan and it's all falling into place.  He told us 6 years ago he was going to change America.  There has never been anything like it.  There are so many leftist bureaucrats in powerful positions like EPA, IRS that we'll never get them out.

'Turmoil'.  Not really.  What I see is postilation and procrastination on the part of the people (sheeple) while the government deviously stick it up the sheeple's anus.....

You cannot get 2 people to agree on anythying today.  Just what the central government wants, divide and conquer....

Just keeps going downhill.....

Obama has two or so years left. Can you imagine two more years of what we are experiencing now?
One scandal, outrage, or failure, after another and another. Meanwhile we're sinking into financial oblivion,
there are no good jobs, the world is blowing up and Obama is going to Palm Springs to play golf and
do a fundraiser or two. Beam me up Scotty.

I'm of the opinion most folks aren't particularly political. They bone up on issues a little around the elections, but
beyond that, they just go along living their lives, doing the best they can. The problem today is the federal government
is into everything! And they aren't making things better, they are making things worse. Think about it. We have two
parties in a constant battle to run the federal government so they can determine the best direction of the country.
The problem as I see it is this results in policy greatly influenced by politics. If you and I as individuals, not politicians, 
sat down to come up with a solution to a problem, politics doesn't factor in, we are focused on fixing the problem. And
we do.

The point is government is not a logical thinking entity.  Then there is the incompetence and corruption of the bureaucracies
they employ to implement their policies. That is another story.
