    WOW! Julia rises from the ashes in black face.

    WOW again!! Mighty impressive, wot? ANOTHER study committee to "work across FEDERAL agencies", the people LEAST LIKELY to know how to solve STATE problems.

    But of course we don't know how much it will cost, bunky. Cost is always irrelevant when we're trying to shore up our base. Let those damn cheapskate small business owners pay for it along with the rest of those who still pay taxes.

    Why do I feel like barfing?

    Should executive orders be done away with?

    No.

    Straight from Wikipedia..........
    Whether this latest order meets the rules of legality remains to be seen. But what is obvious in reading the details is that the O is promising them nothing. Establishing a "committee" to "work with" is the oldest trick in the book.

    Do you really believe no studies have been made in the recent past concerning this problem? Do you really believe this "committee" is going to solve overnite the problems of AA education in the Chgo ghettos, or any other ghetto?? Do you really think no studies have been done on THAT? Do you really think we need another one?

    I suggest you do some serious research on charter schools vs public schools - one very obvious solution. But I can guarantee you the O won't go near that one.

    No, but an executive order is not going to make a deadbeat dad suddenly care for his children. It's not going to make the gang bangers stop recruiting children.Its not going to remove the rampant use of drugs. It isn't going to change a damn thing. The problems with black education and its solution start within the black community not the Whitehouse.

    No, they should be ignored.

    Anything Obama does till he's out of office is suspect, regarded with suspiction, and thus should neverallowed to stand on it's own without congressional oversight.

    The black community doesn't stop want to hear that. They want someone else to fix their own self created problems. Anyone who tells them to take a look in the mirror gets labeled an uncle tom.

    This executive order stinks so much of an election year stunt that it's making me nauseous.

    This is classic Obama campaigning. He did the exact same thing in the 2008 campaign. Just about every day, he wrote a check the American taxpayers could not cash.

    As for the legality of the executive order, it deals with executive branch agencies, so it is entirely legal, though probably futile.

    No, but they should be severely limited. The president should not be making legislation, except in extreme circumstances. Pandering to the black vote during an election is not an extreme circumstance.
