This Just [About] In: WASHINGTON, D.C.-Sept. 11, 2013.

President Obama's request for authorization to carry out air strikes against Syria failed to be approved in the Congress today.

In a short statement following the 275-260 vote to deny his request, President Obama said, "The vote will not stop the necessity of punishing the Assad regime for using chemical weapons to slaughter its own people. As I said in the Rose Garden on August 31, I have the authority to carry out this military action without Congressional authorization. I am therefore ordering US forces to proceed with the attacks." Sense of Events: Is Obama setting up two-prong Constitutional crisis?

How we have allowed a person, heck, a whole political group of such questionable morals and legitimacy make decisions which will affect our nation and perhaps the world as we know it, That's what I wanna know.

Talk about "gun control"? How about politician control?
