I read it, nothing that isn`t on the self proclaimed #1 news station in the U.S. if not the world. Same old same old, why aren`t all these disgrunteled people demanding the impeachment of Obama? Lets just allow big business to take care of everything.

There is a sweet spot...
Where business operates without too much regulation or too little regulation...
The same goes for Government...
Problem now is Business is too regulated...
Government is running out of control...
Sticking its nose way too far under the tent...

Good question - the better one however is why the Congressional democrats are are allowing it to happen in the first place? Haven't they all taken oaths to uphold the Constitution?" Why aren't they speaking out about the things that are going on in this Administration? What do they hope to gain by allowing these travesties to go on? They have all the power so they could stop it dead in its tracks. Why haven’t they? That’s my question? And I’m doing everything in my power – calling and writing, asking questions – to get an answer. When my grandchildren ask me “what I did I do when faced with this crisis?”, I want to be able to say I stood up for the Constitution. Call your Congressional Representatives! Ask questions, you may not like the answer but you can always ask. Lisa

Obama has one more Czar (a title that does not exist) than George Bush did.

So 31 Czars are fine, but 32 Czars is a problem? GWB created 17 new czar positions, Obama has created 4. Most of Obama's czars are filling positions created by George W Bush. Bill Clinton had 7 czars. Back to 1960 no one had more than 3. If you think Czars are a problem blame the administration that created all the Czar positions.

But the funniest thing about the article on TownHall.com is that on the top of a page bitching and moaning about czars is a link to Bill Bennett's radio show. Bill Bennett was a czar in George HW Bush's administration.

Even funnier is Thomas Sowell considered himself a Marxist for nearly a decade. He doesn't any longer but ironic considering the teabaggers and Glenn Beck use things from a person's past to force them out of a job.

Because forcing people out of their job is above guys like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton?

Bush was in office for 8 years. Obama less than one. Wonder why there wasnt any complaints about Bush's czars? Was it because they actually like this country unlike some of Obama's czars?

You make my point - Czars do not exist or at least they are not supposed to.

If you are unable to see the difference in a “kitchen cabinet” that previous President’s have had versus what ever you want to call what Obama has I can’t help you. Besides, I didn't say Czars were ok for any President but it’s especially not ok to have Czars like Obama’s who have been given enormous decision making powers. Just look at the Payroll Czar - did you vote for this Czar - one unelected man in the federal government - to declare what was fair compensation for a job preformed. Yah, they took Tarp money, so what my point stands. Was this Czar approved by the Senate per the Constitution? Or the environmental Czar who is working with the EPA to place new restrictions on the public with no congressional oversight. Did you vote for him, did anyone? Did he undergo congressional vetting? No and why not? Could it be because the administration knew that the appointment wouldn’t happen if we were given the opportunity to examine the records?

Whether or not you want to recognize it this country is being "fundamentally transformed" just at Obama said he was going to do before the election and we have no one to blame but ourselves. We allowed this to happen. The fact of the matter is that elections have consequences and now we either have to change those consequences - through any legal means available - or learn to live with them. Our constitution has served us very well for over 200 years, providing the fame work that has given us the greatest standard of living ever imaginable. That's where we need to look to to turn things around.

Some one a few postings back asked why the “disgruntled” didn’t just impeach Obama. Obviously, we don’t have that power but neither did the “disgruntled” folks who sought R. Nixon’s impeachment; it took the outraged public to force the Republican Party to force Nixon to resign and it will take the outraged public to force the Democrats to deal with Obama and his overreaching of power. Again, I ask why are the Congressional democrats allowing this to happen, what's in it for them.

We must stand up now and ask the hard questions; make the hard decisions. Yeah, mistakes have been made in the past but I don’t look back, you can’t change history. You can try to hid the truth but that doesn't change anything. I look forward and see what I can do to make history and I encourage everyone to do the same. Get involved, call or write your Congressional representatives. Ask them what they are doing to challenge the current direction the Obama administration is moving the country. If you are are in favor of the things Obams is doing, call them - the interns answering the phones will be glad to speak with a friend. The switch board is hopping and most of it is not positive. Now is the time to take a stand for the Constitution and Liberty.

Please provide me with the source of your information. I have read a great deal from the books of Thomas Sowell and no where have I see anything that states he considered himself a Marxist for nearly a decade. Where is that written and what is the time frame; the context? I'm not saying it's not true I just haven't seen or heard it before this and honestly I feel I have reason to question your objectivity on anything political. Thanks, Lisa
