    Personally, I'm just a wee bit uncomfortable with one Branch making policy, interpreting it's Constitutionality and then executing the policies--but that's just me.
    I'm more than a "wee bit uncomfortable."  It set off alarm bells in my brain that won't stop.

    Just as giving corporations personhood status and "free speech" rights via their money set off more alarm bells.

    Our legislative branch has done nothing to stop them, and since they were first mentioned in the Constitution, they have the responsibility of balancing and checking the other two branches..., when they're not falling down on the job by passing unconstitutional legislation like AUMF, the Patriot Act, MCA '06 & 09, FISA fiasco '08, and allowing the unconstitutional 'office of faith-based initiatives' to be run out of the executive office..., as well as allowing torture to continue by any other name.

    There are MANY things that have made me exceedingly uncomfortable in the last 15 years (I also think Gramm-Leach-Bliley which repealed Glass-Steagall was wrong, and Clinton signed that crap into law which resulted in the '08 financial crash), all of which are unconstitutional and/or illegal in one form or another, or - at the bare minimum, unethical, immoral, unjustified, and/or dishonorable....

    I'm sick of attempts to steer this nation from principles evolved in The Age of Reason to hallucinations derived from illiterate herdsmen. ~ Crashing Vor
