I think the government is out of control, is slowly ruining the country and completely ignoring the people.
Politicians are out to save their own asses and say or do whatever it takes to keep their cushy jobs at the expense of the rest of the country.
Voting seems to be our only "say" in anything, and that is a pretty wimpy "say" when the people we have to vote for are all dishonest, cheats,
egocentric, or flat out morons.

On the other hand, I've made myself miserable worrying over too many conspiracy theories and over things I can't change or have no control over. At some point I just have to let that stuff go so I can get on with living.

@ Chris

Agreed we have to just let go. Tomorrow is not here and yesterday already passed.

To all
Since this is not conspiracy and it is direct executive order from The president, what do we do If this plan is strongly implemented? Do we stand up and say enough is enough.

Except for the Occupy movement, I've not gotten any clear idea what people mean when they say "we should stand up and say enough is enough." It's something people say a lot, but when I ask what that would look like, I get no answer. What does it mean "stand up and say enough is enough" is what I wonder.....

This latest executive order is nothing new. It's an update of previous executive orders by other presidents going back to Eisonhower. This latest version replaces FEMA with the Dept of Homeland Security. It's the same old thing, updated to reflect administrative and cabinet changes.
