we don't have president... ok..there's a person in the office that has the rights and powers of the office of the office. But we don't have the person who represents the below.... I think section 4 already appplies.

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Section. 3.

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

Section. 4.

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

That is a big bite of tire sandwich. For future reference, I have a tire warehouse rather close to you.

I would rather watch Barney, it is more realistic, and he doesn't lie under oath.

The cost for paid Federal Holidays (ironic that they call them 'Holidays' when we all know the origin of the word, yet religious holidays are called something generic, Nativity scenes are no longer allowed on municipal or federal property and any reminder of religion has been erased) per day comes to over $565 Million. PER DAY! The info I found this afternoon shows that the US has almost 2.75 million Federal employees and the average salary is just under $75K/year. This doesn't even include benefits, AFAIK.

I had off today as a holiday. I'm not a Federal nor bank employee. Please don't "throw darts at me". :D I did something useful today. My son and I went scuba diving. We had reservations at Pt Lobos which is a state preserve and "is one of the richest marine habitats in California." The place is right next to another dive location called Monastery Beach. We found out later had we dove at Monastery we would have be diving with a baby grey whale that was hanging out there today. Oh well, you can't have everything.

I knew the inauguration was today. Re-election = not a big deal. It should have been a simple swearing in ceremony and that is all. I did not see any of it on TV. I did not miss a thing.
