"Section 2 - The House
......The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct......."
This Sentence, taken directly from the Constitution of the United States proves that our political system has NO IDEA what powers (checks and balances) belong to each branch of the Government. It makes me wonder when the last time was that they read the document they are sworn to protect and defend.
I keep hearing these supposed representatives complain that Maobama is attempting to steal the Census, and I can't help but think...... These IDIOTS have the power, but not the cajones! What is everyone afraid of? Why not just stand up and say "Mr. President, I know of a law on the books that says Only Congress can re-appoint the manner and reporting of the Census."
Is this as big of a deal as the right wingers are making it out to be? Who cares if it is?!? Right is Right, and wrong... Well, you get it. Power grabbing is wrong no matter if its former VP Cheney or President Obama.
By the way, kudos to Senator Byrd (never thought I'd say that) for publicly calling out the President on his appointment of Czar's. Here's a link to the story: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/02/25/ap/congress/main4826828.shtml
Till next time, keep your powder dry, and your eyes open.
