I think this Founding Father's quote is as appropriate for our times as one can find. Thomas Jefferson warned: “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government.

Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) reminded President Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder that Obama isn’t King of the United States of America and can’t ignore the powers of Congress. After 14 months of refusing to give the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee documents relating to the Fast and Furious fiasco, the committee, chaired by Issa, voted to hold Holder in contempt this week.

Chairman Issa didn’t schedule the vote until after President Obama, arrogant as ever and determined to pick a fight with Congress, exerted his executive privilege to block Holder from releasing any additional documents...
