Understanding The Recess Appointment Truce
SCOTT HORSLEY and AUDIE CORNISH
July 04, 2013 3:00 PM

"For the first time in a long while, Congress is on recess — an actual recess, without the so-called pro-forma gaveling in and gaveling out staged every few days to technically remain in session and thereby prevent President Obama from making recess appointments that don't need Senate approval. A kind of gentleman's agreement brought this about."
http://www.npr.org/2013/07/04/198781841/understanding-the-recess-appointment-truce


Anybody wanna make a bet on whether the Repugs will make such appointments if/when they get back to the WH?

No doubt this 'gentleman's agreement' will be cast aside by the Repugs like so much used TP into Iceberg Lake...

Funny that conservatives like TGT and Anderson whine about the Muslim Brotherhood losing power in Egypt.

The Islamists never seemed to acknowledge that Morsy had won the presidency in a runoff with barely a majority of votes (51.7%), and that in the first round of voting, his secular opponents combined had more than 55% of the vote. Morsy behaved arrogantly, pushing through a controversial constitution with little consensus, passing a highly divisive edict putting the president's actions above judicial review, and in his most recent politically tone-deaf move, appointing 17 provincial governors last week, all affiliated or allied with the Muslim Brotherhood -- including an astonishingly divisive member of Gamaa Islamiya, the organization responsible for the devastating 1997 massacre of 58 tourists in Luxor.

The top ten quotes from Thomas Jefferson on religious freedom:

1. “Among the most inestimable of our blessings is that … of liberty to worship our Creator in the way we think most agreeable to His will; a liberty deemed in other countries incompatible with good government and yet proved by our experience to be its best support.”– Thomas Jefferson, Reply to Baptist Address, 1807

2. “The rights [to religious freedom] are of the natural rights of mankind, and … if any act shall be … passed to repeal [an act granting those rights] or to narrow its operation, such act will be an infringement of natural right.” – Thomas Jefferson, Statute for Religious Freedom, 1779. Papers, 2:546

3. “The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as are injurious to others. But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” – Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1781-82

4. ”Subject opinion to coercion: whom will you make your inquisitors? Fallible men; men governed by bad passions, by private as well as public reasons. And why subject it to coercion? To produce uniformity. But is uniformity of opinion desirable? No more than of face and stature.”– Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia, 1782

5. “ Millions of innocent men, women, and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, and imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch toward uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one-half the world fools and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth.“ – Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia, 1781-82

6. ”I know it will give great offense to the clergy, but the advocate of religious freedom is to expect neither peace nor forgiveness from them.“– Thomas Jefferson, to Levi Lincoln, 1802. ME 10:305

7. “I am really mortified to be told that, in the United States of America, a fact like this [that a bookseller is prosecuted for selling books advocating what was then presumed by the statusuo to be pseudoscience] can become a subject of inquiry, and of criminal inquiry too, as an offence against religion; that a question about the sale of a book can be carried before the civil magistrate. Is this then our freedom of religion? and are we to have a censor whose imprimatur shall say what books may be sold, and what we may buy? And who is thus to dogmatize religious opinions for our citizens? Whose foot is to be the measure to which ours are all to be cut or stretched? Is a priest to be our inquisitor, or shall a layman, simple as ourselves, set up his reason as the rule for what we are to read, and what we must believe? It is an insult to our citizens to question whether they are rational beings or not, and blasphemy against religion to suppose it cannot stand the test of truth and reason. If M de Becourt’s book be false in its facts, disprove them; if false in its reasoning, refute it. But, for God’s sake, let us freely hear both sides, if we choose….”– Thomas Jefferson, letter to N G Dufief, Philadelphia bookseller (1814), after being prosecuted for selling de Becourt’s book, Sur la Création du Monde, un Systême d’Organisation Primitive, which Jefferson himself had purchased (check Positive Atheism’s Historical library for a copy of the entire letter).

8. “I am for freedom of religion, & against all maneuvers to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Elbridge Gerry, 1799 (see Positive Atheism’s Historical section)

9. “I never will, by any word or act, bow to the shrine of intolerance, or admit a right of inquiry into the religious opinions of others.”– Thomas Jefferson, letter to Edward Dowse, April 19, 1803

10. “Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person’s life, freedom of religion affects every individual. Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the “wall of separation between church and state,” therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.” -- Thomas Jefferson, to the Virginia Baptists (1808) ME 16:320.

Apologize to the readers.
It turns out we weren't nearly critical enough.
The law's implementation is turning into a fiasco for the ages,


and this week's version is the lawless White House decision to delay
the law's insurance mandate for businesses, though not for individuals.

Sure must be fun to ignore his own law that Congress passed and he signed.
Isn't that what dictators do?

The cited WSJ story points out
an inconvenient truth
that the Un-Affordable Care Act's Section 1513 states in block-letter law
that "(d) Effective Date.—The amendments made by this section shall apply
to months beginning after December 31, 2013."

It does not say the Administration can impose the mandate whenever
it feels it is politically convenient.

Be happy, TGT. The Brotherhood has been dealt a severe blow.

Obama had to deal with the government that emerged from the Arab Spring, and it wasn't what the protesters wanted either. He pushed for a broader base, Morsy ignored him and has paid the price.

TGT's FOX News link is fairly benign. I actually clicked on it. Statements from three GOP Senators and one spokesman for a Democratic Senator. Just like a Sunday show lineup, except no John McCain.

The President knows Obamacare is, in the words of one if its chief architects, a train wreck. Now, apparently fearing being held accountable to voters at the ballot box, the President wants to delay implementation until after the 2014 elections. We should accept the President’s invitation, and indeed defund Obamacare altogether, to restore economic growth and avoid the impending train wreck. – Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX

"Flexibility is a good thing. Both the administration and Senate Democrats have shown - and continue to show - a willingness to be flexible and work with all interested parties to make sure that implementation of the Affordable Care Act is as beneficial as possible to all involved. It is better to do this right than fast." –Sen. Harry Reid, D-NV, spokesman Adam Jentleson

"This is the train wreck that the senator who wrote the law predicted was coming. The new health care law should be repealed and replaced with effective legislation that will reduce costs by involving patients more in health care decision-making." – Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.

"Obamacare costs too much and it isn’t working the way the administration promised. And while the White House seems to slowly be admitting what Americans already know, and what I hear consistently in my travels around Kentucky regarding the regulatory burden on employers, the fact remains that Obamacare needs to be repealed and replaced with common-sense reforms that actually lower costs for Americans." – Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Lobbying to get illegal aliens waved off of employer mandate is almost passing! The 50 employee obamacare rule is for citizens only thank you.

Down sizing US citizens and replace them with illegals will be wonderous
for profit and keep many from bankruptcy.

And no one wants to become a stupid little 49er only forever company.
