  1. The problem is that the Supreme Court has been unwilling to enforce the separation of powers. The court has generally found a way to uphold the executive order. US v. Midwest Oil was Trump's best friend and is Biden's best friend.
  2. In US v. Midwest Oil, Congress had previously legislated that the public lands be open for oil and gas development. The President at the time didn't like this because he feared the government would run out of oil. So he decided to issue an executive order to unilaterally withdraw 100s of thousands of acres of lands in CA and WY from oil and gas development...despite the fact that Congress had specifically legislated that the federal lands be open for oil and gas development. The Supreme Court upheld the executive order. What we had was Congress passing a law, the President not liking the
  3. So the job of the executive is to legislate when their is a perceived lack of legislation from Congress (or perhaps the executive doesn't like Congress' legislation)? Some like dictators. I'm not one of them.
  4. Apparently you are unfamiliar with United States v. Midwest Oil Co. It is perhaps my least favorite case (other than some pre-civil rights cases that have fortunately been overturned).
  5. Different Presidents may have used it for different reasons. But there is no reason that it is ok to use for legislative purposes. The power grab continues a drift toward dictatorship rule. The founders would be appalled.
  6. Joe Exotic speaks out: "I was too innocent and too GAY to deserve a Pardon from Trump." "Boy were we all stupid to believe he actually stood for Equal Justice? His corrupt friends all come first," https://people.com/crime/joe-exotic-speaks-out-not-receiving-pardon-from-donald-trump/
  7. The executive order...the single greatest threat to our system of checks and balances. It has become the chosen tool to legislate for republicans and democrats alike. The legislature is supposed to pass laws and the executive enforce them. Both parties have turned the executive order into a tool for making laws without legislative consent.
  8. I think we all know who was behind Trump’s pardon list.
  9. Joe Exotic schedules limousine outside of prison in anticipation of a pardon. https://news.yahoo.com/joe-exotic-limousine-standby-near-112800405.html
  10. The whole world is on pins and needles awaiting the decision.
  11. What is the over-under on this thread's longetivity discussing Boise's imminent departure? 3, 4, 5 years? In any event, here should be the terms of Boise's MWC exit that would probably be largely agreeable to everyone: 1) All Boise athletic programs immediately leave the MWC without paying any exit fees. 2) Boise is forced to take its college football 'insider' Ibanez with it. Immediately and upon which, Ibanez shall be forever restricted to annoying AAC message boards with his breaking news. 3) All MWC institutions and Boise State expressly agree that no football
  12. He is 4 years older than Jameis Winston.
  13. This video enters my mind for several of you.
  14. That’s cute. My reaction is that of someone who is familiar with rule 5.5 of the model rules of professional conduct for attorneys, and, who can Google Nevada’s unauthorized practice of law statute.
  15. From Robe, this appears to be giving legal advice and commenting on Nevada state law without a license to do so. Do not take his advice and speak to someone knowledgeable.
