How have we gotten so far away from the checks-and-balances upon which our nation was founded? The executive branch has the responsibility and prerogative to enforce the laws that Congress writes. It is the judiciary’s responsibility and prerogative to interpret the laws. The executive has little place giving legal counsel to private corporations. If anything the executive branch should be sicced on Verizon to do the bidding of Congress.
Congress seriously needs to get over its fear of impeachment. Nancy Pelosi, get your ass in gear, stop waiting for a better time and find an offense to nail them on. It doesn’t have to be much: any misdemeanor or crime will do. I can only assume that the House of Representatives fears future retribution so much that it is paralyzed. If that is the case it is high time to get rid of the whole thing; our system is failing and there is no recourse. Approval is in the 20-30% range across the board but we’re too lazy to revolt.
Why is our country failing itself?
