In case you missed it, last Friday, as night fell over Washington, Obama hid in the shadows and signed into law Senate Bill S.679 Presidential Appointment Efficiency and Streamlining Act. This closed out another work week — for those lucky enough to be working — and was yet another questionable law signed under cover of weekend distractions.
Senate Bill S.679 exempts certain senior-level presidential appointees from Senate confirmation hearings. According to lawmakers it’s all part of a new, more efficient government.
How utterly preposterous. Loathe to do their job, unless it somehow lines their pockets, apparently these congressional kooks think it’s better for the supreme ruler and all future rulers to have the power to simply waive their scepters and place who they want, where they want.
Excuse me, it is the people’s government, remember?
“Important positions will be filled faster, government agencies will be more capable of offering valuable services to their constituents, and the overall confirmation process will be more efficient,” said Senator Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.).
That’s rubbish, Joe, and you know it.
Regardless of any ridiculous rationale put forth by these repulsive representatives, with this law the presidential throne is further strengthened and the Congress — supposedly the voice of the people — is further weakened. This law allows half-wits, corrupt cronies and shady czars, unknown and unaccountable to the American people, to be placed into government positions.
It is telling that the cowards in Congress had Lieberman, an Independent that is retiring, be the primary spokesman trying to sell this horse-bit to the American people. As if we’re too blind to see all the villains that voted for it hiding behind the old man.
Who are these men and women? They were elected to hear the people, not ignore them. They were elected to serve the people, not themselves. They were elected to uphold the Constitution — not tear it into small pieces. Are these people actually Americans? If they are, someone needs to bury a boot in their butts.
Or is there something going on, you know, behind the curtain? Is there some puppeteer somewhere, hateful of the Constitution and hell bent on destroying America, that is pulling strings to make these miserable marionettes perform these anti-American acts again and again and again?
Only the world’s biggest buffoon would believe allowing unconfirmed appointees will improve government efficiency. Worse, without review, how will we know who these appointees are? Do these naive nincompoops actually think there are no spies or enemies of America?
Isn’t this exactly what Michele Bachmann and others were attempting to address when they called for investigations to determine who is who within our government?
Well, these pathetic puppets may not care who works within the people’s government — but the people do.
