As always, Thomas Sowell makes complete sense. Will it have any effect? That question should be answered “yes” but probably we shouldn’t hold our breath.

Our constitution provides a separation of powers that is absolute. And yet the Democrats continue to try to usurp the powers of the Presidency under the Pelosi/Reid/Murtha/Schumer cabal of lunatic seditionists, and nobody seems to want to hold them accountable. Well, yes, we who understand the dangers want them held accountable, but our completely legitimate concerns seem to be of little import.

"April 03, 2007
Democrats Playing With Fire
By Thomas Sowell

. . . That these political games are being played while Iran keeps advancing relentlessly toward acquiring nuclear weapons is a fateful sign of the utter unreality of politicians preoccupied with scoring points and a media obsessed with celebrity bimbos, living and dead.

. . . Once Iran has nuclear weapons, that will be an irreversible change that will mark a defining moment in the history of the United States and of Western civilization, which will forever after live at the mercy of hate-filled suicidal fanatics and sadists."

Once again, I’d like to extend my thanks to those Republicans and Independents who either sat on their hands or voted for Democrats in the last election. You clowns are getting exactly what you deserve. The problem is, those of us with common sense are being endangered as well!

UPDATE: Just for those who didn't study when they were in school, here's the relevant passage of the U.S. Constitution:

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; . . .

and yet, some Conservatives actually blame Bush still.

a few act all upset with GW in regards to Pelosi's foolish meddling in Syria.

as if the focus on the unethical Democrat, who is engaged in the mindless undermining isn't worth their time.

part of being Conservative is personal responsibility, and yet some seem to want to put all responsibility for everything on this fine President.

that is exactly the misguided mindset which empowered Pelosi.

thanks for the fine post Ms. Miller.

I've been crowing about the idiots who crossed-over or sat on their hands every since the election. I understand people were horribly disillusioned with a Republican President/Senate/House that couldn't seem to do much of anything that was conservative outside of tax cuts and protecting the country (try to think of anything else).

That being said, I kept trying to make the point that change can happen in the primaries - quit settling for the wishy-washy incumbent just because you think he/she is more electable. Otherwise, a protest vote or no-vote is just propping up p.o.s. like Pelosi, et al. Hope those voters are finding it hard to swallow.

That passage was written to ensure civilian control over the military, not executive vs. legislative control over war making/ending decisions.

You know, in case you didn't study when you were in school.

Clearly paul you have no clue about the Constitution. I have a master's degree and an exceptional education. The Constitution says what the Constitution means. The Congress is NOT and NEVER WILL BE Commander in Chief. That is the job of the PRESIDENT.

The Legislative body can propose funding. The President can VETO what they propose if it is bad law. If they can't override his veto - the veto stands.

paul, if you are this ignorant, please go comment somewhere where your ignorance will be appreciated. It is NOT appreciated here and I'm too damned old and crotchety to give you the education you should have gotten in public school!
