Chaz,

Can you at least read the Wikipedia page on Executive Orders before asking any more passive-aggressive questions?

There are countless text books out there (not blog cites) that clearly explain what executive orders are and how they work.

Oh, three times as many links!!! Yours must be better!


You posted three articles that did not explain anything about what an executive order IS.

You just assume they are some sort of Obama evil.

Here's a hint:

United States Presidents have issued executive orders since 1789 [...]

1789...where have I heard that year before?

So why would Biden have uttered this?:

"The president is going to act. There are executives orders, there's executive action that can be taken."

I didn't just make this up. A dozen sources back me up.

You didn't make that up, but you pulled that quote selectively. It's pretty tame in context. From your first link:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas): “I stand ready to defend the Second Amendment and efforts to undermine our God-given rights.”

Explain to me how owning an AR-15 is a God-given right?

Uh, because there ARE executive orders (it is true, look it up)... there ARE actions that can be taken. News flash, that's how our government WORKS. If you don't like it, move to Canada.

Here are a few past executive orders that date back to 1937, that should keep you busy for a little while:

Executive power, and the ability to issue executive orders, is DEFINED by the Constitution.

F*#k, Washington himself issued the first executive order.


Are you really this clueless about basic government?!?


Don't read that Wikipedia page, it might give you a clue!

Now get your ass back to DrudgeReport, and bring us more links!

Does executive order trump the Bill Of Rights?

I don't think so.

What in The Constitution backs up your opinion? Can you cite it?

Your precious 2nd Amendment relies on a "well regulated militia, being necessary to secure a free state" which we have already established is irrelevant since you don't stand a chance against the US Military, regardless of how many assault rifles and 30 round clips you have.

...and then call your High School Civics teacher, and apologize.

The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order.

"Does executive order trump the Bill Of Rights?"

What's your take on Executive Order 9066?

So because the government has grown to be that large, we should just roll over and surrender rights that were won via supreme sacrifice?

You may think so, but the rest of us don't.

Chaz,

that amendment was written to be effective only as long as the government was small. Now that the government is large, it was designed to be discarded.It says so on these twelve links!.....
