Have you seen how the anti ban crowd is no longer claiming that Trump has no authority, but now are going after the constitutionality base that he is discriminating against religion?

All they can do is throw crap to the ceiling and see wish one will stick.

I have to laugh, Trump reaction? he is no backing off.

" If they can't make a solid decision together, the responsibility to decide then should fall to the people."

Really?
Which "people"?

"The ban plan is for 90 days and it is already ticking down... 90 days less than three months. If national security is the goal? Whats wrong with 90 days to give some extra check for all of those wanting to come in or go out that may return? It gives a window of added security as allied forces have been clamping down hard with the agenda to stamp out IS etc. "

Took the words right outa my mouth! Couldn't agree more.

What does worry me somewhat is the amped up, Media hyped, protests going on over this. Its utterly ridiculous. They've practically shut down LAX!

What this really points up is the vast divide between the "Cities" and the rest of the country. Trump is truly "President" of fly-over country, heartland America. The residents of the Urban areas will never accept him as "their" President and the Mayors are acting like little "Kings" of Independent City-States. This is much akin to the Brexit situation wherein, I believe it was the Mayor of London stated the the UK could leave the EU, but London would remain IN the EU.

One thing is certain, these "Cities" need be brought to heel and its up to the State Governments to start that! The Feds can go a long way to doing that as well. A great many of these cities are actually not financially sustainable without massive Federal funding for things like transportation boondogle projects.

Well, any time coalition forces have hit IS hard we or an ally have been attacked... so the 90 days? It isn;t just about Muslim it is everyone coming from and likely going to and planning return from those seven countries... muslim, christain, hindu, buddhist, all racial backgrounds. There are a ton of illegals that have skipped immigration here on expired vistas and pass ports... is that fair to anyone taking the route of legal immigration hell no; jumping line is never polite... so what's the big deal 90 days and ticking.

Reading the news? There has been some major advances in removing the stranglehold of IS... which means what? There is that increased chance of an attack or a hit somewhere, not just the U.S. so avoiding another Boston etc? Not a bad thing to say hey; lets do something that should have occured at the start of all of this.

There were a lot of high jackings prior to 9/11 yet still no locks on doors, no air marshalls etc. so not securing and leaving a hole... well allowed what occured whether anyone believe it an inside job or not? Irrevelvant, because if measures were in place? From saying hey we keep getting high-jacked maybe we should secure things? But waiting on government to force that because doing so would have cut into profits is what led to it to keep happening until government had to step in and secure.

So when profit is the driving force? No one is thinking about the reprocussions; in not delivering the absolute best quality possible... it's cheap fast and dirty. I don't have an issue with buying from China or any other country... but I want to buy one damned screw driver so that means extra for quality not 20 of them surpassing the origional investment for what appears as a short term saving because they are inferior.

Of course it also isn't China's fault but hell they need to imploy people... so 7 billion screw drivers it is what it is... they know it isn't helping their environment or resources or the worlds but since there is demand there is supply. Also manufacturing techniques and cost of labor do that... everyone wants to put pride and quality into their work as any artisan but when it's demand demand demand? Quick cheap and dirty. Of course, corporations compete globally and lowest bidder always gets the contracts and when it's profit driven and not about the quality delivered?

Then it turns into what it has... it's just the nature of cause and effect; foresight, a stitch in time saves 9. Of course as techniques have changed the quality goes up... to the point where things are then branded and still made in those countries instead of where they originated, not a bad thing when it elevates peoples quality of life... anywhere in the world. That's what globalization is; business wise... trade is how we have made friends and partnerships since the silk road days. It is not only how we have come together... but is also how we have grown apart.

Seeing the impact of it becomes the hammer to judge the wrench in the entire system so it is fair and doesn't screw ayone.

Countries not providing their citizens industry, opportunity, or sharing their wealth... end up with a whole lot of people with a whole lot of nothing but time on their hands... and in that time they say hey why are we have nots? A leader or puppet points: Them.

As much as I want to see Gitmo closed and wanted the EO to stand, the government system did it's job in preventing a solo pseudo-king rule. It doesn't matter who's in office, they don't get to make all the decisions themselves.

Where we utterly fail with this is that when Congress shuts down the EOs, or the POTUS shuts down Congress with EOs or vetos, the issue should be put up for public vote, not continuously kicked around between the two. If they can't make a solid decision together, the responsibility to decide then should fall to the people.


No.

The "people" have proved that they are completely willing to throw away the minority opinion via an uninformed emotional majority. They cannot be trusted to make decisions unilaterally at the federal level. No way. That's why we're a Republic in the first place.
