Should President Obama (alongside Lindsay Graham and John McCain) be wearing an orange jumpsuit?
Welcome to the beautiful and surreal reality of life under American corporatism, under a Congress that churns out thousands Â and thousands of pages of (often contradictory) legislation a year.
If providing material assistance to al-Qaeda is illegal under the National Defence Authorization Act (2012), and Obama and Congress are sendingÂ $25 million of aidÂ toÂ al-Qaeda-affiliated Syrian opposition, arenâ€™t Congress and President Obama violating their own law? Should Obama (or at least the Justice Department) not be using â€śall necessary and appropriate forceâ€ť including â€śthe power to indefinitely detainâ€ť to prevent Obama and Congress from assisting al-Qaeda? Did anyone in Congress or the Obama administration even bother to read the law that they were signing? Do Federal laws no longer apply to lawmakers?
