A Nation of Men

Noted in passing: today is the "60th day" since the formal announcement that U.S. armed forces were involved in the civil war in Libya. Other than a handful of GOP senators neither the Congress nor the White House appears to be concerned about missing the deadline for a Congressional approval of the escapade required under 50 U.S.C. 1541-1548.

The U.S. right has always scorned the "War Powers Resolution". Now the circle is complete, and the U.S. "left" (whatever there is of it represented in the corridors of power) shows its disregard that the People in Congress have any business interfering in foreign military policy.

What was that? A nation of laws?

Whereever did you hear THAT nonsense..?

Yawn, another Imperator/President.

I suppose that you will next complain about un-equal application of the law.

Bloody peasant!

And you do know how you know a fellow is a king, don't you?

I had a pleasant conversation with a fellow about this classic, MP&THG, just yesterday.
