Re: Politics, Everyday, All day... morning, noon and night....II

To be clear, my statement above was in reference the Democratic and Republican parties as political institutions. Both of them corrupt as shit and not representing the interests of people like you and me. A dog and pony show to keep us divided and fighting. Total good cop/bad cop bullshit. Remember...

well, the nice thing is, the prez. can't just push a button and "launch nukes". There is a chain of command and layers of people involved. It can be a "lawful order" as far as the prez. making it. but, the people along the chain can question it and delay/refuse.
