I've been all over the spectrum on the possible impeachment of President Obama. A case could be made for abuse of power. Now, it may be true he has not had as many executive orders issued as President George W. Bush. But, in Obama's case, he has changed law (his own health care policy) to establishing law (Deferred Action for Dreamers) to not enforcing the law (Immigration Enforcement Act of 1986) already on the books. He swore an oath to uphold and enforce the laws of the land. He did not swear an oath to uphold the laws he likes. He swore an oath to uphold THE laws (U.S. Constitution) of the nation. There are not "ifs, buts, or whats" in that oath. Let's take a quick look at the oath President Obama took:

I think Texas governor Rick Perry said it best, in regard to the ongoing illegal alien surge on our southern border. "He's either inept or has an ulterior motive," Governor Perry was quoted as saying. I'm not sure what Obama's ulterior motive might be. If it is to force the hand of the GOP to pass immigration reform aka amnesty, it has been a dismal failure. If it is to "transform America," it is a mixed bag of success. I'm not sure even the Idiot in Chief expected this mass surge of illegal "children" to our southern border. Many of the criminal gangs are passing as "children" of 16 and over. We will all pay for this eventually.

As most should know, President Obama overstepped his authority when he appointed members to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) when he assumed Congress was in recess. But, Congress was only out of order for three days. Take advantage of the situation, in the same manner a child would the cookie jar when mommy isn't home, he made his own appointments. In a stunning 9-0 ruling, the SCOTUS slapped the petulant child's hand. As such, they said the President of the United States violated the constitution.

In what has become an unimaginable scenario, in a major U.S. city, the city of Detroit has half its population unable to pay its water bill! You read that correctly, half the Detroit residents can't pay a basic necessity of life, water. A spokesman for the Detroit Water System stated it is a possibility that the United Nations may have to step in to help provide funds to a U.S. city so people can have water.
