The U.S. Needs To Wake Up

February 23, 2014

FACT: Obmana has used the 'executive privilege' far less often thanb The Bush administration. And your next item of misinformation????? Do your research, rather than assume your argument is based on anything other than animus (look it up) to a black President. My goodness: what leads people to such ridiculous positions? The earth is 6000 years old? What's science for that, pray (prey) tell?

Reg-skio- You're missing the point about Obama's Executive Orders. It isn't the number as much as the content. A lot of Obama's are unconstitutionally changing laws of the land. It's like saying someone has had 3 speeding tickets and that makes him worse than the guy with only one DUI hit-and-run. Just today, in testimony in the Capitol, a very liberal Constitutional Law Professor, Jonathan Turley, testified that Barack Obama has brought this country to a "constitutional tipping point". This is the most serious condemnation made in a public hearing that I've heard in my lifetime. I can only hope that Pres. Obama hears the criticism coming from all sides of the political spectrum and stops believing he can do anything with impunity because he's our "first black President".

Point of indisputable fact: Obama has used the executive privilege way far less than (especially) Bush and previous Republican administrations. Check your facts before complaining.

Couple more pulled before they shut it down. One where I said I might log in as monkeyboyII. The other on freddy. Good thing I'm not as sensitive.

Most letters end up with more comments responding to comments rather than the writer.

The last 17 or so comments aren't even relevant to this letter. They are more pertinent to the Nancy Griswold letter. Is this running dialogue here because the P-J has shut down comments on the Griswold letter. If so, maybe we should start calling into the P-J and letting them know that a letter made unavailable for comments should not be posted in the first place.

Switched topics again. Boy, we sure are easy, aren't we? Well, monkey showed up on the other letter and again the comments were shut down. I find that curious.

I'm sure you do Em. I just happen to be very familiar with lesbians. I spent time at Ft. McClellan in the Army. Most I knew had the same childhood experiences. Way to many to be coincidental. I do not believe they were 'born that way".

I'm pretty sure I know a lot more trans people than you do, 50s4ever and I can assure you I am not an exception in as far as my transition. I may be an exception in that I'm willing to be open and honest about it though. I wish more transgender people would reject the undeserved stigma and shame that cisgender people try to apply.

I won't be so rude as to ask just how you discovered it.

I say you're an exception Em. And you made a career of thinking all the others are telling the truth. Bad move. If you throw yourself into the line of fire, you may get hit. That's life.

I didn't decide what my gender was. I discovered it, quite a long time ago. Tough thing was that it didn't match my assigned gender or physical sex. It's rare but it happens so I sought medical help and underwent the treatment protocol that was recommended: a social and physical sex/gender transition. What I*'d like to know is, 50s4ever, who do you think I harmed by doing this? Why do you think I deserve to be marginalized and hidden away?

I harmed no one. I followed appropriate medical treatment. I am a woman and demand to be treated with the dignity and respect any woman deserves and that starts with appropriate pronoun usage.

You may find some policy that sets those rules on how you will be addressed, or referred to, but there is no law.

Let me get this straight. You can decide what your gender is, what is normal sex, what words I can use and what is accepted thought? I liked you people better in the closet. I could just ignore you. That was legal once.

The sentence said, "You only show yourself to be an insensitive and intolerant ignoramous when you misgender me." Quit editing out words that change the meaning of what I've written, loneriderrr1. That's dishonest too.

Show me where I have disrespected anyone in these discussion forums, loneriderrr1. If you;re going to criticize then go after what I've written. Going after me for what someone else may have written is dishonest.

And, Seadog, show some respect. I've already written more than once that feminine pronouns: "she," "her," etc. are the ones that are appropriate. You only show yourself to be an insensitive and intolerant ignoramous when you misgender me.

"Here we go again. Emelye just can't comment without throwing in his/her agenda."

Here we go again, Seadog takes one detail from one of my posts and tries to condemn it even though he misses the entire point by doing so. Are you being paid by the RNC to use tactics like this, Seadog, or do you really think they prove some kind of point in your favor?

That's called, "moving the goalposts," Psychofux, and it's a fallacy that is commonly used in these discussion threads.

I'd like to see some documentation of all those court defeats of President Obama's executive orders. Why haven't I seen any coverage of those in this newspaper or anywhere else?

You can disagree if you are one of those hopeless Obama supporters. The truth always shows itself. The very first thing the National Socialists did was nationalize health care. Stay tuned...your life is getting worse and denial is more that just a river in Egypt.

Neit, you can list all of the past President's past executive order numbers, it is, under the law, the type of executive orders, the content, that makes many of the executive orders of this President illegal. He is part black, no one is going to rock the boat for fear of being labeled a racist.

It seems that those individuals who have a tough time putting one and one together and getting two find it necessary to call everything a conspiracy. I trust you know who you are and if the shoe fits, feel free to wear it.
