All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Dear President Obama,

Dear President Obama,

That's how you'd expect a letter to the president of the United States to start.  Apparently that's exactly how Bob Corker started out a letter to the president.  You did know Bob Corker sent the president a letter, right?  No.  You mean you didn't hear about him sending the letter either?  I understand.  With the limitless number of scandals, cover ups and disintegration of American civilization combined with the media black out of news that might hurt Obummer, it can be hard to keep up.

Bob Corker, for those of you who don't know, is the ranking member on US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.  For some reason he seems to think that Obummer and John Kerry are about to illegally enter into a treaty designed to deprive American citizens of their second amendment rights.

Here is part of what Corker wrote:
Dear President Obama,
It is my understanding that Secretary of State John Kerry will sign the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) on behalf of the United States.  The ATT raises significant legislative and constitutional questions.  Any act to implement this treaty, provisionally or otherwise, before the Congress provides its advice and consent would be inconsistent with the United States Constitution, law, and practice.
As you know, Article II, Section 2 of the United States Constitution requires the United States Senate to provide its advice and consent before a treaty becomes binding under United States law.  The Senate has not yet provided its advice and consent, and may not provide such consent.  As a result, the Executive Branch is not authorized to take any steps to implement the treaty.
Gee, I wonder why Corker thinks Obummer is about to do something that Americans, don't want and didn't authorize via their elected representatives in congress?
