Thats fine. You can hold support group meetings at the wall, when the legitimized action one day gives them carte blanche to use emergency power to make us the socialist nation someone said we’d never be.

That happened when they passed the Patriot Act.

How is it funny to encourage suicide?

I'm pretty laid back about all the banter that goes on...can dish it out AND take it. That one goes WAY too far and I don't think its right to pooh-pooh it as a "lighten up" situation. I'll leave it at that and just put the person involved on my ignore...that will be the first time I've done so in several years.

If you read the conversation up the thread, you can see he was responding to a post about suicide.  But for that, I'd have just blown it away.

This was a reported post...I am sure he was just trying to be funny...lighten up a little


No kidding. My seriousness was on the same level as her intent to actually do it. Honestly, the handwringing only makes it funnier to me.

Too late....

If this was George Bush or Barack Obama, we would be up in arms.

Why should NY gov give Amazon 3 billion dollars? If Amazon wants to move to NYC they can just
move to NYC. I don't think bribing a company like Amazon is a good thing. And how did Amazon get
away with paying zero income tax on 11 billion in profit?

Sevveral valid questions lie in this question.

--But 25,000 jobs are good for NY and the company and employees would pay many taxes, incl. state, local, sales and property tax. State, local, city income taxes. et.


Amazon merely plays by the rules, including tax laws,that politicians enact.

People still need jobs, even in AOC wrongly runs her mouth.


There is probably political advantage for the GOP, if they can execute thereon.

The 1976 Law allows the president to move funds from one part of the government to another to meet an emergency situation. That law IS congress authorizing the appropriating of said funds to meet the declared Emergency as the president deems prudent. As such, these funds ARE "drawn from the Treasury in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law". Congress allocated the funds to one part of the government...and by the 1976 statute...authorized the president to shift those lawfully allocated funds to other departments and for other tasks he deems necessary related to the Emergency.  In short, all funds WERE drawn in consequence of Appropriations of the congress...and then utilized according to congress own statute.

I didn't note any language in that law that states that the President is allowed to re-appropriate funding.  If you have found it; I would appreciate a link please.

Considering Obama was using executive authority to usurp what is congress's specific constitutional prerogative, he was right.

I feel it is important to not use 'but Bammy did it or the leftists are doing it'.  What we should be concerned about is those that we elect, adhering to the Constitution.  If we don't we will have nothing left. 

WHY did 535 members of Congress allow Bammy's overreach??  For one we had a corrupt DOJ, but also keep in mind, that the GOP held the majority the last 2 years of his reign.  Our elected officials and our leaders in the Senate and House should have NEVER allowed them to get away with what they did and certainly those leaders should have never been re-elected.  Here we sit.
