NEWSFLASH: America is a Democracy!


Funkadelic - If You Don't Like the Effects, Don't Produce the Cause

We at Biochemical Slang know it's been a long time since many of you have cracked open a US History or civics textbook. Thus, we view this post as a PSA of sorts.

Apparently, our House of Representatives (a part of the legislative branch of our government) formally repudiated the president (the executive branch of our government). In Biochemical Slang speak: they took hours of tax-payer funded work time to tell the president, in writing, that they didn't approve of his surge.

Apparently, this was a big deal. Apparently, the House Democrats worked EXTRA HARD for this 61 word, NON-BINDING resolution. Apparently, symbolic "formal repudiations" mean a lot to the House of Reps. Apparently, G DUBBZ can still do whatever the eff he wants.

Apparently, we have forgotten the centerpiece of our fine government: CHECKS and BALANCES. Apparently, this system of "checks and balances" prevents one part of government from usurping total control. Apparently, this "separation of power" is written somewhere in the Constitution.

It's amazing the things you can find...when you're LOOKING for them.
