Imma need y’all to learn how the United States Government works. You don’t have to like her or the president but learn that they do not makes the decisions, they really do not have very much power, the president does not have the power to just snap his fingers and make shit happen or change things. You have to have 2/3 vote from congress to take a shit, let alone do anything having to do with government. The entire government was set up to make sure that exact thing could never happen, that is why there are 3 branches and that little thing called checks and balances.
In fact let me just break this down for y’all right here.
- President has 2 OFFICIAL jobs, Commander and Chief of the Armed Forces, but he only controls a limited amount of the funding for those troops (enough for 90 to 120 days) to engage these troops in combat. He CANNOT just declare war. only congress can declare war. The second, Accountant over the Federal Budget.
- He also is responsible for creating and balancing the national budget, but everything has to be approved by congress with a 2/3 vote.
- He signs bills into law, can veto them as well, however congress can override his veto.
- He assigns judges to the Supreme court, with the senates approval.
- He assigns foreign ambassadors, with the senates approval.
- he creates his own cabinet for people to research into areas that he might not have the time to, these are the only people who do not have to get approval from senate
- congress is made up of 535 people (100 senators 435 HoR) for any of them to come to 1 agreement has only happened once in the history of this country, and that was to go into WWII, and even that the house voted 434 to one (1st woman house of Representative she was from Maine too, she voted against WW1 and 2) and the judicial branch can call anything unconstitutional and kill it as well.
and if you think i’m lying you can literally google this shit in 2 seconds.
That tea is delicious
SAY THAT SHIT AGAIN!
The President has about as much power over Congress as the Queen of England has over Parliament.
The Hate Against Journalists Writing About the Ebola Cases
Recently I have found that there are people complaining about reporters only “caring” about white people who have caught the Ebola virus. Which I see why someone would say that. On the news they only talk about the cases in Texas and how they are trying to find the other people potential of having the virus. Instead of reporting about the areas other than the U.S. that have the same Ebola problem.
This is to clarify; journalists only talk about cases HERE in the U.S. Because that is what their audience cares about. Not because of any racial reason.
Take it from this point of view: You read the newspaper or watch the news about cases of Ebola in Africa (I think it was Africa, not sure. Correct me if I am incorrect). They’re saying that they’re trying to keep it contained. Over THERE. Naturally, someone other than you would think subconsiously “Hey, cases of Ebola in Africa? Okay, cool. It’s away from me in the U.S. I don’t care.”
Journalists are still writing about these cases but no one really pays attention to it because wherever these cases are was not near the audience in the U.S. So no one really cares.
BUT, suddenly there are cases in Texas. Over 100 people are a risk of Ebola. The audience will think, “Holy crap. Texas! That’s in the country I live! Oh god, I actually care about this!”
In Journalism, the question we ask ourselves constantly when we are writing a story is, “Who cares?”. It explains a bit as to why many of the stories you see about Ebola is focused on a person here in the U.S. instead of over there where there is an “epidemic” going around. It’s because journalists have to know what their audience cares about and what will get their attention. I’m not the one to know entirely though. Perhaps there are racist journalists and reporters because it’s quite common nowadays that journalists write their stories based on their bias. (even though they’re not supposed to do that, it’s against “journalist law”)
So, next time there is a story as such focused on someone who is white with a disease such as Ebola, don’t blame it entirely on the reporters and the Journalists. THEY’RE JUST DOING THEIR JOB.
