Did You Know That The President Can Suspend The Constitution?

The Constitution is the guiding legal document of the United States of America. Our laws are based on the Constitution. It is to the United States as the Ten Commandments is to the existence of mankind. Issues that reach the Supreme Court of the land are decided based on their consistency with this grand ole' document. It's not a bad thing ------- in principle.

But, but, there is a big but that's at play here. Did you know the President can also suspend parts of the Constitution, by Executive Order --- a Presidential Power not designated by the Constitution, so to speak. Are you ready for me to share what he/she can suspend? Here goes. I'll just cite a few executive orders that makes this possible:

  • The government can take over all electrical power, gas petroleum, fuels and minerals.
  • ........can take over all food reesources and farms.
  • ........can take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
  • ........can relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
  • .......can operate a national registration of all persons.

These are just a few. Man, this stuff is scarely, and you thought you knew it all.

Guide Right Program Keeps Young Boys Positive

All too often the good goes unnoticed. One such instance is the Kappa Alpha Psi's Guide Right Program. About 100 boys come together to play competive basketball and learn the skills of Basketball, with their parents in the stand, with the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity at the helm. Recently I visited a few of their games and what I saw was amazingly good --- using basketball to teach life's best lessons. On one night the entire coaching staff from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore was present, giving the guys and their parents a lecture on what it takes to succeed. I also saw several high school basket coaches scoping out the guys. I love it, I love it, and the guys do to. This is an example of the good being noticed.
