Democrats have described a number of Republican Presidents, including Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush as being imperial Presidents. But as Barack Obama continues to push the limits of Presidential power, those who have traditionally rallied against the onset of Presidential imperialism are noticeably silent.
The Dow is nearing its record closing high of 14,164.53 set on Oct. 9, 2007. The recovery of President Barack Obama is well on its way. Or maybe not. In truth, we are now in the midst of the worst recovery ever.
Senator Dianne Feinstein introduced her bill to ban weapons with scary-looking features and high-capacity magazines and create a national registry system yesterday. The bill was introduced with sound and fury by a person who has stated it’s her goal to confiscate every firearm in America.
